Why we Relate @ The Company of the Prophets

It is necessary for the prophets to connect with each other and not isolate.  There are many reasons for this which are laid out in the teaching.

THE COMPANY OF PROPHETS

In an effort to become one voice to the nation and the church, the prophets came together in a company.  We met at Gariep dam over the month end of Sept/Oct 2016.  Here are some messages that the speakers shared.  Together we have an impact, alone we are just a small sound.

 

Pastor and the Prophets – Andries van Heerden @ The Company of the Prophets

This is an excellent message and gives good reasons why the prophets need to align themselves with their pastors. We should not view our pastors as resistant to the prophets and learn to work alongside the rest of the church.

The Beginning – Our first podcast!

This is our first podcast with the aim of many more to come. This is only a short introduction …

STRUCTURED LEARNING

Hereafter followed a directive from God.  I was to go to bible School and receive intense structured learning.  I knew I needed it and it would be most valuable – but how? I had three young school going children and a husband in the hospitality business, but god knew all that.  Somehow He opened the Red Sea and I was registered and ready to go to bible School in January 1985.  My goodness, it feels like a lifetime ago.

We do not look back much to the 80’s, but there was an exciting Faith revival in the country and I was catching the wave.  Trusting God for R100 per month to pay my fees.  What a faith walk.

The next two years were just awesome and breath taking.  The most wonderful spiritual experiences.  We would discuss issues in the car pool on the way to class, and the Lord would answer through the lectures that very morning.  How amazing is that?  God showed us how BIG He is and we were taking it all in.

I was unable to do anything extra because the period was so busy.  It was drive to class in Johannesburg, the neighboring city, drive home. Look after the three little darling God blessed me with, and be a helpmeet to my husband and sleep.  Only to begin the next day and go on for the next two years.  It was absorbing and all consuming.

BECOMING ARMED AND DANGEROUS

the bible reading, praying and fasting began in ernest.  I was in a big hurry to catch up.  I always felt like I never knew enough.  Having been on a spiritual search since I was about 15 years old, finally it seemed as though there were some answers forthcoming.  They were coming from the bible.  The truth really does set you free!  although my search began when I was 15years old, it did not bear any results.  there were just platitudes and nice words coming out of the people that I asked.  I instinctively knew that they did not know either, so my search just continued .

Of course I did search in fits and starts.  Life got in the way and husbands and babies came along and the days were full of practical things.  i also found that individuals almost “invented” their own beliefs and explanations.  No one seemed to have a proper answer that satisfied me. the answers felt hallow and vague.

Now at last I was getting to the truth.  some of the things I read were not easy to believe and put into action. I was getting them straight from the source – the bible. Phew! I was enjoying the challenge and was very quickly implementing what I was learning.  the Bible spoke about almost everything and I was making changes very fast.  Firstly my heart changed, then my lifestyle and attitude.  it was a bumpy ride and not popular with everyone around me, but I did not pay too much notice to that, I was happy and enjoying God and the revelations that I was getting.

No more gossip – oops that was not easy. Of course I did not gossip to everyone, only to my sisters, well that had to stop. If you speak ill of your neighbor then you don’t love them. No foolish spending, the money belongs to God.  And so the training began.  the beginning is just that, the beginning.  It was a long road ahead.

I wonder if I would have even embarked on the journey if I knew where it would take me? Continue reading
