Every week here at Pursuing Glory I try to bring together the best posts I’ve found that will equip the end-times church to operate in her God-ordained destiny. These are the best blogs, articles, books and other resources related to our purpose here at this site. Feel free to visit, comment, and make use of the resources found at each site.
I’m super excited for this week’s Food For Thought. I found a blog by Kevin Matthews who we’ve featured here before that I feel captures the essence of what we’re working towards here at Pursuing Glory. I don’t know that I’ve seen a prophecy like this anywhere before and its accuracy is amazing. You can read more about the man gave the prophecy here. The spirit of the prophecy, I believe, is the aim of all the posts featured here and what we contend for here at Pursuing Glory.
A New Move of the Spirit Kevin and Lorna’s Daily Devotional features a prophecy by Smith Wigglesworth about a move of the Spirit after the charismatic movement and the church planting movements. It describes exactly what we’re believing for.
Tim Keller on Movements Steve Addison @ Movements That Change The World does a nice job of condensing a post by Tim Keller on the nature of movements. Any serious movement should wrestle with his thoughts.
Thursday is for Thinkers: Rice Brooks on the Evangelist and the Missional Church Missional guy and evangelism guru Ed Stetzer hosts a guest post on his blog by Rice Brooks about the necessity of evangelists to the missional church. Much needed wisdom at Ed Stetzer’s blog.
Why Simple Churches Don’t Work #7 Ross spends a post looking at how lack of apostolic ministry hinders house churches. This issue needs addressing. You can see this and other hindrances at thejesusvirus.
Why compliments help in planting a simple/organic/house church Felicity Dale looks at the Luke 10 principle of pronouncing peace on houses you enter. This is an often missed part evangelism in the West. More at SimplyChurch.
I just finished up “The Cry of the Harvest” by Chad Taylor. I was looking for a book to stir up a passion for reaching lost souls and give direction in how to do it. I found that and more. Chad is probably one of the most radical American evangelists that I’ve read about in recent history.
What I love about this book is that Chad is profoundly set apart to reach lost souls in this culture. He is not impressed by charismatic Christianity that is obsessed with God’s power but never touches the lost. He calls for a reformation in the church that looks a lot like house churches, but is quick to point out if they forget they are for the harvest they have lost their way.
Chad’s voice echoes the Lord’s heart for us to no longer be complacent about the lost that are dying around us. In many ways, Chad’s writings were a gentle, fatherly rebuke to not forget part of the purpose for which the church exists. Here’s a warning: This book will challenge you. If you’re interested, you can pick the book up here.
