This blog is still in it’s infancy and we are seeking the Lord each day as to how best minister to the body of Christ. We envision this site to be one of community, love, and last but not least, prayer. Yesterday, a really big request came in that we posted from missionaries in India. Their lives are actually endangered. Let’s continue to pray for Bashir & Ayeasha today as well as any new requests that come in.
In addition, if you have any answers to prayer that you would like to share, we would love for you to encourage us with them.
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
The Acts 12 Team
Is. 29:13-14 Therefore the Lord said:
“Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths
And honor Me with their lips, but have removed their hearts far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men, therefore, behold, I will again do a marvelous work
Among this people, a marvelous work and a wonder; for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden.”
God will be gracious, He says. The gathering of the saints via the internet, I believe is directed by God. He gave many a compelling desire to share not only their faith, but also their trails, tribulations and prayers with an online community hungry for truth. Not every one has found their way here, for the days are perilous…
2 Timothy 3:1-9 “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.” ….
I am fully persuaded that those the Lord has called… are at this moment searching…I pray that the Lord will direct them to the truth.
To wait on God…is what we must do…
Is. 30:18 Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you; and therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for Him.
vs. 16-17 “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
Even online we must be cautious of those that seek to destroy the things and the people of God.
We must hold to the truth of God and not man…let God be true and every man a liar. Romans 3: 4 “Not at all! Let God be true, and every human being a liar. As it is written: “So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge.”
This is my prayer, that God work in the heart of those that wait on Him, that they not grow weary, as we have a tendency to do, that we stand firm on the things of God as we begin to shed the things of the world, as we must…for what does darkness have in common with light.. the Word tells us in 2 Cor. 6:14 “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?”
We cannot separate ourselves from the world, but we cannot be bound to the things of this world…search us, and know us Lord. …”Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting…. Ps. 139
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Eph. 2:10.

o.k. i do have a prayer request for all of us who are listening ,watching & waiting while God is preparing or equpping us for these times. I believe God is preparing many for ministry designed for near future ministries……maybe very soon as i feel, within weeks…….maybe others have already began, if so and if we know about them we need to pray for them. I don’t know of any. If you see the “day approching” in your own way,we need to be praying for one another. This web ministry you have here can be a very helpful tool. So, I guess my prayer request would be for those who God is calling into new ministries for the days approching. Thank you, In Christ, bro james
