“We need more money to grow our church,” they say. However, statistics show quite the opposite. As more money is received, membership “growth rate” in the NAD is in a decline.
My soaring teenage emotions allowed spiritual highs like I never had with hymns, yet my devotional life remained the same—sporadic and lifeless.
The ironic thing is, as soon as leaders from the NAD read this article they will protest, “Not sending us your tithe is against policy.”
Please join me in prayer for God’s Church and for the leaders who are faithful at this portentous time.

Our message is not to be an inclusive, ecumenical, milky message, but rather a profound Message, a call to come out from the world and to separate ourselves from every unclean thought and unholy practice.
Thank you for praying for your church. Thank you for looking up, for soon Jesus is coming !
In this video, Gates made various prophetic observations based on events in the last three years. Here is Mark Finley’s analysis of the “Even at the Door” video.
I write this story to illustrate the love of Christ, and the power of gratitude. If Jesus can inspire a crippled man to reach out to hurting people, He can also awaken compassion in those of us who have the use of our arms and legs.

Where is the ’Thus Saith the Lord‘ to sustain this speculation? Individual impressions and "other people being shown the same thing" is not a replacement for complete reliance on prophetic authority.
