Some quotes

There is a groaning generation being raised, a witness to God’s truth and glory being raised for these last days, raised for rejection , raised to be persecuted and reviled , raised for martyrdom, raised to praise God not only from the mountaintops but also from the deepest valleys – bro Frank

Nominal Christians are nothing like the real thing. Their lives are cold copies of the reality, faint lines traced by a dull pencil, conveying nothing of faith’s force and grace. According to Scripture, Christianity is not a geographical concept ( not an accident of birth) but a spiritual one. It does not depend on our being a native of a Christian country, it is a condition, a state of heart, a unique possession – William Wilberforce , Real Christianity

Persecution failed to destroy the church, but it seems that the enemy thought that if he could not beat them then he must buy them.What we in the west consider  blessings, from God could in fact be one of many Trojan horses designed to infiltrate and weaken, dilute and compromise Christendom. Ultimately those who identify with Christ’s sufferings will not fall for the notion of these ” blessings,” and will see it for what it is. Something to held very loosely – bro Frank

We always know where the road leads, but who knows what is around the bend on the narrow path? Roads are designed and built by men and have a very specific destination in mind. Every time you see someone driving on paved roads they know where they are going, they are in control. Not so with the narrow path. It is true that when I walk a narrow unpaved path through the forest, I am never closer to nature, it is all around me, I can reach out and touch it. The narrower my walk with the Lord, the less I know of what lies ahead and the closer I am to Him. He is all around me, I can reach out and touch Him. The paved road, the broad road through the forest takes me further and further away from what is truly important – bro Frank

One of the first things Eric Foley, the co-founder of Seoul USA, learned about the North Korean underground church is that it is not a group to be pitied. About 10 years ago Foley asked a member of the underground church how he could pray for them. He recalls the North Korean’s response, “You, pray for us? We pray for you … because South Korean and American churches believe challenges in the Christian faith are solved by money, freedom, and politics. It’s only when all you have is God do you realize God is all you need.”

The authentic saint is founded upon relationship not theology or doctrine. That is not to say that the authentic saint does not study theology or have doctrine. What it does say is that their entrance into the Kingdom of God came by way of encounter, not by information. One is of the head, the other of the heart. One radically transforms, the other puffs up – bro Frank

Our peace and joy and our blessings are not determined by our circumstances, if they were, we would have to apologize to Job’s friends. In the midst of life, especially in the roughest parts of it, God is working and shaping us for the life to come – bro Frank

It is maturity when we can love our enemies. It will not come right away nor will it come unless we desire it. For those who do, there is a refining process that is brutal, you will be tested on this. After we have learned to love our enemies, then we can truly love the lost. The love that my heart needs to love my enemies can come from one place only, before the throne. Many things can be replicated and counterfeited but love for our enemies is something so supernatural and obvious to all that it cannot be replicated with any great degree of sophistication. One only has to say the wrong thing and step on the wrong toe and the replication is revealed for what it is. Politics, nationalism, race and theology are the great exposers of those who even try to feign love for their enemies – bro Frank
