John 10:27 & Acts 9:10-18 - Winston Churchill, knew he had a unique destiny to fulfill. He was an agent of change conquering natural forces. The church now faces supernatural forces for real, sinister and deadly. 1. How do we hear and respond to God's Voice?. 2. How do we discern what is real and what is counterfeit?

1 John 2:12-14 & 1 Corinthians 4:15 - You have 10,000 instructors but you have not many Fathers. Apostle Paul addresses the elephant in the room.

God is raising up and calling the mothers and fathers in the body of Christ to step forward and minister God's love.
Hebrews 12:1-3 & Romans 5:18-19 - The Holy Spirit is sending out a prophetic call for the church to DIVEST herself (throw off, discard, eject) of all that hinders and the sin that entangles us with distractions from the call of God. Pastor James shows us HOW the scripture equips us to do so.
Matthew 10:38 & Acts 9:10-19 - Jesus rested his mandate to his followers on two words: to SERVE and to Give into the lives of Others. Before Christ we often are SPENT and consumed with an empty life. God calls all believers to be SPENT LOSING OUR LIVES FOR His sake.
