The Great Harvest is here. Christ's Mandate for Missions and CMMTheology build strong, organic relationships globally as we worship, grow and equip together. Like Joshua and Caleb and the Apostle Paul, we see with faith what He sees in each person (to help each reach fullness), group (many streams and backgrounds in unity) and nations (sheep vs. goat nations). Our passion is to love, connect, equip and send with the simplicity, fullness, and power of the Gospel.
It was one of those life-changing occasions that could almost go quietly unnoticed, except that it changed the hearts of men and women there that night, even students and children. Reports came back from as far away as Maine. People heard what happened and were glorifying God with "thanksgiving and praise" for the night that Arthur visited CMM in Charlotte in May.
People were crying, tears were flowing. It was a humble and broken Thursday night. But everyone left a little lighter, with joyful hearts. Only the Lord could orchestrate such a meeting! Jesus said, "If I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me." John 12:32 The Lord was glorified that night, no man, no one else. We were in His presence and He healed us.
Arthur brought some of his friends and they began to add what was on their hearts until there was a freedom for everyone to be an active part of the meeting. What a night of healing! It started with Arthur Burt, himself. At 97, "Uncle Arthur" still travels all the way from Wales to encourage and warn people, "This is the dawn of a new age! We're in the last of the last days! Humble yourselves!" But this particular night, he was tired, worn out from traveling and weak. At first, he could hardly speak. He's had four strokes in the recent past, but is still willing to "Go..." where the Lord sends him to bring the Word as he hears it, to teach or preach and tell his stories.
The Healing Rooms of Charlotte heard he was coming to a meeting hosted by CMM so they closed the Healing Rooms down for the night and everyone came over to see Uncle Arthur. He's been coming over from Wales and England for close to 50 years, so many know Arthur Burt, he brings the Body together.
First things first, we all prayed for Arthur's strength and for his healing and the Lord answered right away! Arthur was rejuvenated and carried on in an honest and loving way that opened the door to truth and deep repentance. One after another, people stood up to repent, especially for their lack of love for their families, for the Body of Christ, for each other. Hearts were breaking, hearts were healing, hearts were melting and open to each other. The Lord transformed our thinking, our lives were changed.
And the Lord strengthened Arthur! He went on to minister in meetings in North and South Carolina and Georgia for the next two weeks! He's home now in Wales with his family. We are praying that the Lord keeps him strong and publishes his last book, "And there shall be no Ebb..." soon!
Waking Up by Robin McMillan LAUGHING JESUS Posted: 31 Jan 2010 05:46 PM PST I picked this rendering of Jesus because He is laughing. (I don't know who drew it and apologize for using it without permission.) Most historic religious imagery of the Lord shows Him serene, serious, ethereal, other worldly, in agony, or sad. I know that He was the suffering Savior but he was also 'anointed with the oil of joy above his companions' (Hebrews 1:8-9). People need to see a laughing, joyful, happy Jesus to round out their understanding of God! Jesus is the source of our joy and as King of the universe, is seated on a throne having been anointed with joy. "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. You love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions" (Psalms 45:6-7). In Acts 2:15-21 Peter defends th

Even in the midst of chaos and uncertainty the work of our Father, that is, to believe, strengthens our resolve and commitment to our Lord Jesus and the ultimate victory in His completed work on the Cross. Thank you for your prayers and sharing this with your friends and family. CMM Friends around the world as friends of Jesus and sons of God together, working to show Jesus' love to all those needing comfort and hope, here in the USA and abroad. Two weeks ago one of my fruitful friends shared the account of a Muslim man near the border of Pakistan and Afghanistan seeing 'the man in white,' Jesus. He surrendered His heart to our Messiah and is now offering a safe haven to as many fleeing Christians as his large tract of land can hold.

Demons flee Here are just some of the recent miracles Jesus is doing here in Chester, UK…. Taxi driver feels something leave his body! On Friday in the café we met a taxi driver who came in with his grown-up daughter. She'd been in last week and we'd prayed for her and her friend. They'd both felt the presence of Jesus really strongly and she'd told her Dad who didn't believe her! He agreed to come into the café with her yesterday as he'd seen her circumstances change for the better since we prayed last week. He told us he had diabetes. We invited the Holy Spirit and commanded the diabetes to leave his body. He s
