NOTE: Please see announcement about DALLAS, TEXAS and also MINNESOTA below. --------------------------------------- "NO SLANGING Matches!" -Andrew Strom. Since I published the Rick Joyner statement, I have had a few people asking if I am getting into some kind of "slanging match" with these guys. Certainly not! Who needs it? I just felt on this occasion that I needed to respond. But perhaps that was the wrong thing to do. One thing I do know is that right now we have to be all about LOOKING FORWARD and not back. There is so much that God is wanting to do right now. It is almost like He has kept back a giant wave and now suddenly He is allowing it to move. That is how I feel, anyhow. "Momentum" suddenly exists! So we are about "going forward" and looking forward these days - not fighting a rearguard action. There will be no "slanging matches" developing on this List! Frankly, I have no plans to publish anything more on that subject. Recently, for the first time, I feel like we have a whole array of messages to preach that truly TRANSFORM LIVES. They are like the 'basics' of New Testament Christianity - which I thought we already had - but before it was only fragments. Now it is more like an "array". I am seeing it more and more. This is why the word 'Conference' bugs me a little - because Conferences are so often just these sessions of gorging on 'teachings' and being "passive" hearers. They are hardly "revolutionary" things very often. But I saw in the John-the-Baptist Conference something different - which truly did impact all of us in a 'revolutionary' way. Many people bringing things and the 'whole Body ministering' also played an important part. Can lives be truly transformed and our whole way of "doing Christianity" altered in the space of just a few days? Yes, I believe they can, if the anointing of God is there. And there is a whole array of these basic things. They are so simple, yet when they are brought together - so profound. God truly caught us by surprise. And I believe He is showing us the way forward. It is all about basic NEW TESTAMENT Gospel and NEW TESTAMENT Christianity. Doesn't that just sound so simple? But it is the way He brings it together that is profound. I have never seen more of an impact. DALLAS and MINNESOTA I have been in touch with various ones, and I am feeling more and more that our next two Conferences need to be in Dallas (Texas) and also Minnesota. Obviously, I have been getting emails from all over the place, but these two strike me as places we need to prioritize for some reason. I feel quite strongly about it. There are already people who are helping us in each place, and I will let you know further details as the time draws nearer. Here's looking forward! God bless you, my friends. Kindest regards in Christ, Andrew Strom.
