Pam and I would like to welcome you to the 5-10 minute Micro-Sermons we have put together to help you focus more on heavenly things than earthly things. Earthly things bombard us every day and cause us to fear and worry to the point they rob us of our faith. On the other hand heavenly things cause us to focus on the promises of God and expand our faith.
“When God said that knowledge and time would speed up in the last days (Daniel 12:4), He meant it for travel, sports, business, and all of creation, but most of all for Christianity. Christians are the least excused to fulfill God’s spiritual principles which apply to all of creation...so Lord bring on the revelation and knowledge that you promised that we might catch-up to your plan!” ~Michael L. Mathews
"Great teaching attracts people to the teacher; but revelation attracts people to Jesus" ~David Hairabedian
We are pleased to announce the recording and archive of an exciting Interview with World Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke. During the interview Bonnke shares His thoughts on Evangelism, the Church, and the importance of staying with the simplicity of the Gospel found in Matthew 4:23. Bonnke's humility and simplicity has allowed him to be part of over 50 Million people accepting the salvation message during the past 10 years.
During the Interview Reinhard Bonnke prayed a simple, yet powerful prayer for Wisconsin. The prayer was ... "I pray for Wisconsin and I thank you Lord that your cloud of glory may descend and people will be convicted of their sin--of sin, righteousness, and judgment. As the Holy Spirit has been sent, I pray that He may be active and that people will see your glory, receive their salvation, and also all the other gifts that you bestow upon humankind. I pray that it may happen and that you may send men and women to bring it about. In Jesus name, Amen."
This prayer can be heard as part of the full interview. We encourage you to listen and agree that Wisconsin is being prepared for the long awaited and powerful manifestation of God's Glory, just as Bonnke prayed.
In addition to the Bonnke Interview Mark Halvorsen hosted three other interviews with Buki Fagbemi, Desmond Rose, and a final interview between Mark, Pam and I, to discuss the significance of the Bonnke interview and the need for a 'Salvation" message.

We need to be careful we are praying for the right things and not only the symptoms. Just as faith manifests itself in people; fear also manifests itself in things such as control, anger, depression, etc. Listen and hear about the control of fear and how it cancels out faith.
Week 1 - Lawlessness at Work. Did you know that in II Thessalonians 2:6-7 that the Apostle Paul states that the mystery of lawlessness would take place and be revealed before Christ's Return?
