The planet seems to be groaning under the intense pressure of impending doom. The average person today is exposed to more bad news in a week than someone a hundred years ago would have heard in a lifetime.
I don’t know about you… but the swirl of anxiety, and even the weight of hopelessness, have been thicker in this season than most others in my life.
Perhaps you’ve found yourself in the middle of a storm, longing for a day when it will no longer feel like this…
I’m reminded that in the midst of the darkest epoch season in human history, Jesus had the audacity to teach us a prayer so powerful that it defies human reason. His words, spoken against the intense backdrop of adversity, would be forever remembered as the Lord’s Prayer.
Jesus said, “Pray that My Father’s Kingdom would come and His will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.”
Was this prayer a sort of “wish upon a star” intended for billions to pray, but only a few to experience in some distant eternity?
I don’t think so! I think Jesus actually expected us to believe that when we are empowered by the Holy Spirit, we can pull heaven down to earth.
You may read that and wonder…
How do I even begin to bring heaven to this crazy world?
Why don’t I experience the miracles I see in the Bible?
How do I run after the things of God when I’m the only one in my church who believes in signs and wonders?
Who will teach me how to pray for healing, and prophesy good news in such a heavy time?
The truth is that you’re not alone in your questioning. In fact, these are the kinds of questions I’ve been asked in my over 35 years of ministry.
It’s why pastor Bill Johnson asked Kathy and me to launch the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry over 20 years ago. Since then, we’ve been raising up people like you who are longing to bring heaven to earth.
For years we’ve dreamt about how we can help people all over the world walk in their God-given identity and authority.
This June, we launched the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry Online, BSSM’s first-ever online learning experience.
BSSM Online is a unique school designed to work around your schedule and your location, to equip you to walk in the gifts of the Spirit, and release kingdom culture within your home and community.
Applications for our fall terms are now open! Part-Time classes begin on August 31, 2020. Full-time classes begin on September 8, 2020.
I’ve been dreaming of the day when I would be able to tell you about this new program, and I want to invite you to learn more or apply today.
I’d be honored if you would join us this fall, and I know you’ll walk away equipped to flood our world with His transforming power and partner with Holy Spirit to see the Lord’s Prayer answered.
If you’re interested in BSSM Online but aren’t quite ready to apply, I want to invite you to join me this Wednesday at 3:15pm PDT for BSSM Online Open House, an exclusive Zoom event where you’ll get to experience a taste of what online school is like. I’ll be preaching a message and then my BSSM Online team will offer interactive ministry right on zoom. Seats are limited, so grab yours now!
