We offer tribute to Bob Jones who passed away yesterday, peaceful and smiling. Bob was a contemporary prophet, known around the world for his prophecies which spanned over four decades. He was also known for His deep love for God and for people.
Bob prophesied in 1984, that the ‘New Wine’ would be poured out in ten years, which we saw and know happened in Toronto in January 1994, and other parts of the world.
Bob was known and loved by many friends of this church, some of whom he personally mentored. It would seem that his death may mark a change of season.
Bill Johnson tweeted, “Our wonderful friend and prophet Bob Jones went home to be with Jesus today, his first love, on Valentines a Day.”
Christian leaders around the world are mourning his passing and praying for his family. He is survived by his wife Bonnie.
Jerame and Miranda Nelson brought a blazing hot message to our ‘Love Revolution’ Conference. This message was a call for all of us to be ‘on fire’ for God! To be part of a new generation of radical Christians who are truly walking in His intimate presence, in His love and in His power. To believe His word and take hold of it in order to step out boldly in His gifting to touch, heal and give hope to our hurting community, nation and world.
We saw much demonstration throughout the weekend. We witnessed miracles of God’s healing power that touched many people who were present. One woman responded to a ‘word of knowledge’ for a damaged right ankle. She came forward as she had twisted her foot and ankle when she was out hiking and had experienced problems ever since. After healing prayer she tested out her foot and ankle thoroughly! This caused much amusement as she was determined to be sure it was healed – and it was! She also received healing to her lower back. Praise God! There were also several other words of knowledge for ankle injuries and people responded positively to healing prayer.
Another woman responded to a word for healing a ‘heart condition’. She had heart failure and would easily become breathless. After prayer she ran around the meeting room and was no longer breathless! One person suffered from asthma for 20 years but felt pressure lift away and she could breathe easily. She felt ‘so good’. Someone with a whistling ear since childhood responded and it stopped! A woman received prayer for sciatica and the pain went. A man received prayer for a slipped disc. He actually had two slipped discs and he gained movement and freedom from pain. He felt good! There were many more responses to the healing touch of God. Ligaments were eased. Repetitive strain injury pain disappeared. Heart stent pressure lifted and pelvic alignment occurred. This is what the world is looking for! People want to see God’s power of love work in their life situations. They need to see His power and His love poured out. One family travelled 3 hours to receive prayer for their 6 year old daughter.
We believe that God is going to touch our city of Gloucester. We have a rich inheritance to claim from our Godly forefathers such as Robert Raikes and George Whitfield. God wants to bless our land because of their faith. Take hold of God’s promise. We need to demonstrate God with the ‘Word’ and the ‘Spirit’ and spread the ‘good news’ by the demonstration of His presence and power. Yes! There is a price to pay. It is intimacy with God. This will cost us everything because God wants our whole hearts. Nothing held back! Jesus only did what He saw His Father doing. He walked and talked with Him in intimate relationship. So can we! Do you want this? Go after it with all your heart. The Kingdom of God is taken violently! With passion!
Tomorrow evening ‘Love Revolution’ begins at the Parkside Suite at the Hallmark Hotel, Matson, opposite Gloucester Ski Slope. We are anticipating great things as God pours out His love and His presence affects the area, and indeed our whole city.
We are thrilled that Jerame and Miranda Nelson are with us for this weekend conference; the first stop of a short UK tour.
In ten days ‘LOVE REVOLUTION’ will begin. Join us for a weekend of increasing experience of God’s amazing love! We are pleased to welcome Jerame and Miranda Nelson (Living at His Feet Ministries) who will be sharing and ministering.
