I want Fire, not Fizzle!

I am amazed, at 40, to think about all the thousands of people I have met, worshipped with and enjoyed friendship with, who are no longer walking with God. It seems there are those who start so well, begin in fire, but end in a fizzle. This has led me recently to think about why…

In 1947 Smith Wigglesworth prophesied the following: “During the next few decades there will be two distinct moves of the Holy Spirit across the church in Great Britain.

The Terrible Evangelist!

I’m a terrible evangelist. There, I’ve admitted it. I lead an AOG church in the north of England, I’m a pastor and I love to lead God’s people; but I’m a terrible evangelist. Now my story doesn’t end there. I may be a terrible evangelist, but lately I’ve been learning, in little baby steps, how…

Forever, for now

Harry Connick Jr, the modern day Sinatra-like crooner, limbers cheerfully through the “romantic” lines “if nothing lasts forever; then I’d figure I’d better take you forever, for now”, presumably unaware of the significance his wisdom carries. He describes the era in which we live. An era where we are washed daily in a new moral…

Prophetic word: Days of Wonder

Stadiums, arenas and the greatest auditoriums will be turned into church buildings. Market places filled with thousands will be overcome by the glory of God.

Revival? It might just kill you!

And yet, throughout the wondrous six weeks I began to realise I felt desperately weak
