The Vision is going to be key in these last days.
It is a place where the sound of the Spirit is released…
a place of signs, wonders and healing…
a place of intentional outreach, discipleship and training…
a place of refuge being established right now – the epicenter of Father’s love and His supernatural power that will change and influence individuals, regions and nations of the world.
“Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring – …he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.” Romans 4:16a, 20 & 21
Tithing or Giving ~ by Roger
Tithing or giving, which is your pleasure? Do we have a choice? I think so. What is the difference between the two? Why should we consider anything but tithing? It’s a really good question, since most Christians do not tithe! However, there is an important difference between the two. […]
The Clarion Call ~ A Word from Father
Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall the clarion call goes out to all. THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND! Step forward you who are Mine and receive your marching orders. You must have victory over your flesh and your comfort zone. Say goodbye to your natural way of living for THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND! Eternity is supernatural and your eternity begins now. Remember I have scheduled a time for all things so My timing is your friend. Will you go with Me?
“Talk With the Taylors” Webinars
“TALK WITH THE TAYLORS”
Back in late 2010, Father asked us to begin to reproduce ourselves as prayer ministers. As we prayed about how He would have us do that, we sensed that the webinars would be a great way to begin that reproduction! […]
An Easter Message ~ April 24, 2011
Where there is life, the people prosper. Where there is light, the people prosper. Where there love, the people prosper. When life, light and love are diminished, darkness creeps in, and the human spirit lacks authority. Flesh rules and hope gives way to discouragement and destiny is lost in the shadows. But then, the Kingdom of God is at hand and resurrection power and authority are available to mankind at their request. All that is necessary for man to live supernaturally and in abundance has been provided through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. What greater gifts can be offered and rejected by so many generation after generation? Come to the table of blessing and provision and partake freely of that which We have made available to you. When will man realize that We are his blessing […]
Looking Through the Eyes of the Spirit ~ Marsha Burns
The following is a great word from Marsha Burns. Father has been dealing with us a great deal about walking in the Spirit and not in the flesh. I’ve taken inventory and I am amazed at how much time I really do spend in the flesh!! This is a challenge to us all to take stock and honestly ask Father to reveal to us how much time we spend literally ‘disconnected’ from His Holy Spirit!
An Easter Blessing For Our Readers
Excerpt From You Are Blessed by Sylvia Gunter
Speaking to your personal spirit, hear God’s word for you in John 11:25. “I am the resurrection and the life.” 1 Peter 1:3 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” Ephesians 1:18-20 “I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know…His incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the Heavenly realms.”
Spirit, be blessed to know that […]
From Roger’s Journal
Life is love and love is life. Those who feel unloved need law and rules of conduct to guide their pain. Those who feel loved and walk in love need no restraint. They are givers not takers. They are lovers of man not haters. They are God-centered not self-centered. They are humble not proud. They are ever watchful, loving, caring and giving My love to the hungry, the needy, the desperate, the proud, the rebellious and the deceived freely without condition. […]
Living in Love Hunger ~ by Roger
I hope we have made it clear by now that the message of Father’s love is not enough! It is the beginning! It is essential because without the message there will probably not be an experience with His love. The message alone will not change our world; the experience will change everything in our world. […]
Unoffendable ~ by Francis Frangipane
“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh” (Ezek. 36:26).
God has a new heart for us that cannot be offended, an “unoffendable” heart. Beloved, possessing an unoffendable heart is not an option or a luxury; it’s not a little thing. An offended heart is endanger of becoming a “heart of stone.” […]
The Art of Thinking ‘Lightly’ ~ John Paul Jackson
In last month’s eletter, I suggested you begin each day with this thought: Today, God desires me.
It is a simple statement that is always true, and every time we accept it as truth and then pursue it as truth, we are being active in renewing our minds, which Paul talks about in Romans 12:2:
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. […]
How to Gracefully Leave a Ministry ~ Al Ells, M.C.
These days, the duration of a clergy member’s career is rarely committed to one congregation or ministry. Even in rural areas, clergy are more transient and less likely to remain in one position, serving the same congregation for life. Some denominations intentionally rotate pastors every few years. […]

Insights by Rick Warren
We believe you will enjoy the insights that Rick Warren has with his wife now having cancer and him having ‘wealth’ from the book sales. This is an incredible short interview with Rick, “Purpose Driven Life’ author and pastor of Saddleback Church in California.
In the interview by Paul Bradshaw with Rick Warren, Rick said: “People ask me, What is the purpose of life? And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven. One day my heart is going to stop, and that will be the end of my body…but not the end of me. I may live 60 to 100 years on earth, but I am going to spend trillions of years in eternity. This is the warm-up act – […]

The Church That Jesus is Building ~ by Wayne Jacobsen
“What do you think the church is going to look like ten years from now?” I get asked that question almost everywhere I go. People assume that my travels and correspondence give me a wider view of God’s work in the world. And while it may be a bit broader than some, in the grand scheme of things, I interact with a very small slice of Jesus’ followers and even that is a very specific subset drawn by the content of my books and websites.
Nonetheless I find it a fascinating question mostly for what it says about us. Our religious training has put our focus in the wrong place, asking the wrong questions, and leaving people feeling adrift when they have no need to be. […]

The Demise of Addictions ~ by Roger
I know that we have talked a lot about love hunger in the last few years. It probably will never end, so let’s add to our list of considerations about love hunger by looking at the possibility of addictions as they relate to love hunger.
First, let’s consider this question. Are addictions a spiritual, emotional or spiritual problem? In most cases, the answer is ‘yes’ to all three. […]
Faulty Foundations in Relationships ~ by Roger
When another person begins to express love to us and they accept us, pay attention to us, share intimate information about themselves with us, we usually respond in like manner. We may feel safe with this person and trust and faith in the relationship grows. We draw close and a mutual love relationship may develop. Ahhhhhhhhh! All is well. Or is it? […]

The Standards of Love ~ by Wayne Jacobsen
I was in an internet exchange the other day where someone asked, “Do we meet God’s standards of love? If not, what can we do to improve?” […]
The First Commandment – by Roger
In Matthew 22:37-39 and Mark 12:29-31 Jesus is asked the question, “What is the first or great commandment?” His response is very familiar to us all, but I wonder how many of us have paused to consider the depth of what He said? He told us to love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, with all your strength and the secondly love your neighbor as you do yourself.
Obviously the command is to love. We can then make the assumption that we are all created with the capacity to love. Certainly Jesus would not command us to do something that He knew we could not do. So then do we automatically have love in us? Consider, we are created in God’s image and 1 John 4:8 says, “God is […]
Proclaiming So Much Love, Experiencing So Much Hate by Gerri
Recently I was plummeted (knocked off my feet) and sent into a state of shock by an email I received. It was full of unforgiveness, offense, and hatred. It was dishonoring and the tirade was obviously coming from a very wounded heart that had totally misunderstood a discussion I’d had with a mutual family member. As always, when conflict like this arises, I always go back and review the communication. Then the difficult part comes when my flesh kicks in and I want to cut this person’s head off. I have often said that I plead with God for 5 minutes in the flesh and I would only need to use 3 of the 5! In three minutes I can be totally successful at giving this person a literal piece of my mind! Remember that our soul (our […]
Servants In Conflict: Stick It Out or Split? by Al Ells
The New Testament is full of great partnerships: Paul and Barnabas, Priscilla and Aquila, and of course the 12 apostles. Ministry leaders of today still follow suit. Establishing and operating a church or ministry is more than a one-man job; it requires a team.
Sometimes a husband and wife work toward a common vision. Other times, a preacher or teacher and a worship leader combine their gifts to plant a congregation. So many incredible ministries have started with just a few dedicated believers.
But what should a ministry team do when conflicts arise and cannot be resolved? Should the team seek counseling and conflict mediation, or should the warring parties dissolve the partnership? In Acts 15, Paul and Barnabas sharply disagreed over whether to take Mark with them on their second missionary journey, and so decided to go their separate ways, […]
