At the beginning of the new millenium a new breed of transformational Christianity has emerged. Rather than preaching it models what it means to walk with Jesus and in the spirit so that signs and wonders will follow. Some of its most remarkable role models are Heidi and Rolland Baker , Dan Mohler, Todd White, Ben Fitzgerald and many many more. This movement of radical faith and intimate devotion multiplies rapidly by manifesting the out-pooring of the Holy Spirit.
It started in the mid 90-ties and has nowadays reached significant public awareness. More and more People living it out a live of manifesting God, just as the disciples did in Jesus time. They live their life in the firm belief of God with us / in us & we in him. Just like Jesus prayed. Such an incarnational outliving of the character of a loving, just and redeeming God has not ended with Jesus' earthly life. Check out Dan Mohler , Todd White and Heidi Baker on Youtube.
Extract from https://www.facebook.com/lifestylechristianity - Todd White 13 November 2014 ·
Was preaching how because of what Jesus did, we walk as an open heaven every where we go, as Christians we are " the righteousness of God that is in Christ Jesus!" Because Jesus who knew no sin became sin! When the blood of Jesus becomes our focus! The way that seems right to a man is a gate of hell that makes a closed heaven between the ears in our thinking. Jesus said this ( our thinking) wouldn't prevail against the church. The simplicity of the Christ we must maintain less satan tries to corrupt our mind and take us away from this as he did eve. He got her to question what God said. Hebrews says in past days God spoke to the fathers through things like the law and the prophets but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son! Jesus is the revelation! The righteousness of God! The old testament is what we had to do to attain it, the New Testament is who we are because JESUS attained it for us WHO BELIEVE! In these sessions in Melbourne I was training dts students at a Ywam base at the Australian leadership conference. It was a training where it was to prepare all people there for huge outreach! The picture along with it is a cloud in a cloud with a rainbow in the middle. This appeared over the area that the out reaches we're going to begin, rainbow is about promise and Jesus is the promise of heaven. The news reported it! God made it really easy! So many testimonies are flowing in of sooo many salvations, hearings, deliverances miracles! Let's stop praying for an open heaven and just be one!!!!! Heaven is waiting for you to believe it !
The 700 Club - reprinted from CBN.com – SIGNS AND WONDERS
Todd White was a drug addict and atheist for 22 years. He was at the point of suicide when God came into his life and set him free. Todd has been living the Gospel for four and a half years. Today, Todd preaches the Gospel of the Kingdom everywhere he goes and God backs it up with signs following. Todd’s heart is to equip the church and activate them to live a 24/7 Kingdom Lifestyle by helping them to get out of the boat and brave the waves of fear, empowered by the Holy Spirit. Todd loves sharing the simplicity of the Gospel of the Kingdom and what Jesus Christ accomplished at the cross, which is the measuring stick of God's love for us.
It is common for Todd to see dozens of people healed while he goes about his everyday life. He has been on street ministry with Chris Overstreet from Bethel in Redding, Cal., and he has taught power evangelism and street ministry at Extreme Prophetic with Patricia King.
“This is every day for me," Todd said. "When I go to restaurants or if I go to the mall, or anywhere for that matter, Jesus paid a price for all. So all are in and all are a target for the love of God."
Todd’s home base is with Neck Ministries in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania, where he is a ministry leader and teacher. He also teaches at Randy Clark’s Global School of Supernatural Ministry and preached at the Church of the Great Commission. He has been blessed to receive impartation from Randy Clark, Bill Johnson, Roland and Heidi Baker and Benny Hinn. Todd has not only been blessed to travel domestically seeing miracles, but on a recent pilgrimage to Jerusalem, he saw over 150 Muslims and Jews healed by the power of God through the name of Jesus Christ on the streets.
Dan Mohler & Todd White
Dan Mohler began his pastoral ministry only two and a half years after coming to the Lord. After serving for 8.5 years as an associate pastor, he now travels as an itinerant minister, sharing the transforming power of the gospel in a way that leaves others changed forever. Dan also teaches at the Global Awakening School for Supernatural Ministry and Healing Schools.
His passionate quest for intimacy with God, has given Dan a powerful revelation on who we truly are in Christ and what our mission is here on earth as believers. His inspirational messages on redemption penetrate the hearts of believers and motivate them to live righteous, compassionate lives. His passion is to see the love of God reverse the effects of sin and sickness in the world and train others to reproduce the works of Jesus in their every day lives. Dan has seen the power of God heal countless diseases, including cancer, AIDS, hepatitis C, leukemia, stroke, and many more. Dan’s absolute confidence in Christ’s redemptive power and his ability to walk in humility allow him to minister God’s love in a way that crosses all denominational boundaries. He preaches and lives the pure gospel, and as scripture promises, healings, signs and wonders follow.
Todd White’s testimony is a beautiful story of the transformational power of Jesus. The Lord miraculously rescued him from a life of drugs, athiesm and deception; the result is a man who is 100% sold out for Christ. The power of redemption and what it truly means to be born again into the kingdom are the foundation of Todd’s teachings. God has given him a special anointing for words of knowledge and healing- especially in the context of street ministry. His boldness in stepping out by faith to allow the power of God to touch strangers is inspiring for everyone who wants to follow Peter’s example and “get out of the boat.”
Todd has been a guest on Patricia King’s “Extreme Prophetic” ministry as well as the 700 Club and the Sid Roth Show. Todd White's street ministry is regulary featured on the 700 Club Interactive and the God Squad TV shows.

0 CommentsSex in Marriage - Pauls teachings in 1Cor7:3-523/1/2017
Why is it that in our society we have plenty of sex before marriage and rather little in marriage ?
And I think Christians are no exception. Maybe the problem is even as old as mankind. Paul didn't write his letter for no reason. So the questions must have come up. Lets see what Ray Stedman has to say:
Having said that marriage is a way of relieving sexual pressures, Paul now says something else very significant. He says sex in marriage is designed of God to teach us something about ourselves, and to fulfill a missing need in our partners. You see this in Verses 3-5:
The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights and likewise the wife to her husband. For the wife does not rule over her own body, but the husband does; likewise the husband does not rule over his own body, but the wife does. Do not refuse one another[or to put it more bluntly, as the Greek actually does and as we read in the King James Version, "Defraud ye not one the other"] except perhaps by agreement for a season, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, lest Satan tempt you through lack of self-control. (1 Corinthians 7:3-5 RSV)
I say this by way of concession, not of command. I wish that all were as l myself am. But each has his own special gift from God, one of one kind and one of another. (1 Corinthians 7:6-7 RSV)
The major thrust of that paragraph is telling us that sex in marriage is designed for the fulfillment of each partner. This is what the Song of Solomon so beautifully captures. We read a paragraph together from that this morning just to catch the flavor of that beautiful book, written to describe the exquisite ecstasy of sexual love within marriage. That is what that book is about. Unfortunately, Victorian squeamishness has so prevailed in the Church that most people do not know that. They think it is a book written to be an allegory about Christ and the Church. Well now, since marriage is that kind of an allegory, that is a legitimate use of that book, but it is not what it was written about. It was written to describe the courtship and wedding and subsequent married life of a young couple who before God were seeking to explore and discover all the beautiful relationships that God intended when he made our bodies different from one another, when he made our psyches different from one another, even our spiritual hungers different in male and female and brought the two together. ... Paul does not say to the husband and the wife, "Demand your own sexual rights." He never puts it in that way, and yet as a marriage counselor I can say that I have been involved in scores of cases where one of the major problems of the marriage was that one partner, usually the man, demanded his sexual rights from his wife. Nothing, perhaps, is more destructive to marital happiness than that .......giving license to the husband to demand sex whenever he wants it is to destroy the whole beauty of sex in marriage. ......you have the right to ...give him or her, as a gift from you, the fulfillment of these sexual desires -- and the responsibility you have is not to your mate, but to the Lord to do so. It is a matter that Paul puts on the basis of the relationship that a believer has with his or her Lord, and it is the Lord who asks us to give this gift to our mates in marriage, and thus to make it a basis of mutual fulfillment and satisfaction.
In other words, sex in marriage is a gift that you are to freely offer to each other. It is not a selfish, self-centered satisfying of your own desire. If we understand that it is going to make a big difference in many marriages, and, if you reflect on it a moment, you will see why. I suggested last week that physical sex is given to us to teach us how to relate to one another psychologically, and how to relate to God spiritually, and this is true in this area. Sex is so designed that we have no control over it ourselves within marriage. We need another to minister to us, and that is designed of God in order to teach us how to relate and fulfill the basic law of life which Jesus put in these terms when he said, "If you attempt to save your life you will lose it," (Matthew 16:25, Mark 8:35, Luke 17:33, John 12:25). If you try to meet your own need, if you put that first in your life -- "I am going to have my needs met" -- the result will be that you will lose the joy of life and you will lose everything you are trying to gain. Instead of finding fulfillment you will find emptiness, and you will end your years looking back upon a wasted experience. You cannot get fulfillment that way.
That is not merely good advice -- that is a law of life, as inviolable as the law of gravity. You cannot beat it any way you try. The only way to find your needs met and yourself fulfilled is to fulfill another's needs. Throw your life away, Jesus said, and you will find it. That is what sex is all about. It is designed not to have your needs met, but to meet another's needs. Thus, in marriage, you have a beautiful reciprocity. In the process of devoting yourself to the enjoyment of your mate, and to giving him or her the most exquisite sense of pleasure that you can, you find your own needs met. That is what is meant by Verse 4, "For the wife does not rule over her own body, but the husband does; likewise the husband does not rule over his own body, but the wife does," (1 Corinthians 7:4 RSV). That is not saying that you are slaves of one another. It is saying that the power to give fulfillment to your mate lies with you. He or she cannot fulfill himself or herself in this area. It is impossible. That is why sex with yourself, solo sex, is a drag. It does not go anywhere. It is a dead-end street. It is a momentary, mechanical fulfillment that leaves you psychologically unfulfilled. The only way those psychological fulfillments can be met is by your partner giving you the gift of fulfillment and you giving him or her the same gift.
0 CommentsREVIEW: The proper care and feeding of husbands by Dr. Laura SchlessingerThis will give men some learning tasks as well. We all tend to expect a fair and generous exchange of favors.Dr Laura Schlessinger (1947) has a no nonsense approach to time proven values and common sense. Her straight talk to women makes her a champion of men as well, because she is quite critical of women. She has written many books and has a grateful following among women who found her words empowering and who have reaped the benefits of a better marriage and the adoration of their grateful highly motivated husbands. When you listen to her envision somebody who was a naughty girl when young during the Hippie era and a snarky sounding person like Joyce Meyer or Judge Judy. It's a teaching style to drive home some points while entertaining and offending an audience with some hard truths. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Schlessinger .
I do recommend Dr. Lauras book "The proper care and feeding of husbands" as well as her website
For balance I should mention her marriage book as well and the critical reviews on Goodreads.
This will give us men some improvement tasks as well. We all tend to expect a fair and generous exchange of favors. What may not have been addressed well enough may be baggage in form of long lists of past memories. The "U OWE ME". How do we start a new day with credits to our personal emotional bank accounts (Steve Covey). I recon there are 3 accounts that we need to look at. Two individual accounts (personal favors) and the 3rd one is a commonly held marriage account (we-account) where the couple pays agreed mutual contributions (Sound timeless principles). A big challenge is the account keeping where the bank has the last word on what the real balance is.
Sometimes we men may be more eager to reap transformational benefits then our women are. Laura has abdicated the women's lib movement and is now a social conservative. The book also comes with a disclaimer that it is written for normal people and isn't applicable to women that have married a sociopath. Likewise I might add that the book will only be beneficial for women that fit the normal spectrum as they would otherwise insist on their sense of entitlements and fight the notion that they should read a book that could actually improve their life.
A good way to get a grip on what's in the book is to watch the video "I'm busy, I'm tired .."
followed by a video interview on the topic of "cheating husbands" , read the transcript here !
Now the next step is to introduce your wife to these online samples and then order the book.
