Rosh Hashanah: The Declaration of Worshippers

Rosh Hashanah is a feast that celebrates creation. As we gather, our prayer is that the Lord use us to fulfill the disciples prayer, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done” (Matt 6:10). As God fulfills this prayer in us, He proves us as gold tried by fire (1 Pet 1:7). This proving is not…

The 2013 School of Prophets is upon us!

Each year, from June 28th through July 5th, Shiloh hosts a School of Prophets conference for The Living Word Fellowship. Last year, I wrote a post about what this conference means to us called “What is the School of Prophets Conference?” There has been much more written about John Robert Steven’s vision of the School of Prophets from which this time is born. All of these words describe a reality of the School of Prophets that is deeply rooted in our hearts and our way of life all year long.

Pentecost – The Spirit and the Word

God has given us His word, but it is through His Spirit that we can understand it and have it live in our hearts. As Jesus taught, the Holy Spirit would guide us into all truth and remind us of His words.

We must find our prophetic voice to change the course of this age. Change will come from the victory of Christ proclaimed out of our mouths. You must immerse yourself in the Word. Read the scriptures, live in them until the witness of Christ comes alive in your own heart. Then proclaim the victory that…

Passover, a Family Affair

Although Passover has a powerful application for any person or people who suffer under bondage or oppression, the celebration itself is very family oriented. This year at Shiloh, many families were celebrating and throughout the night pictures were exchanged through the wonder of technology (i.e. text messages). Over the days following, stories began to come to give context to the pictures.

The Leaven of the Accuser Removed

The Lord is cleaning out our ears to hear His voice. The accuser of the brethren has whispered lies that are like leaven, tainting our heart and responses. By the blood of the lamb we must see the leaven of the accuser removed until we come to know the Father’s love for us. With this…
