Welcome HOME, Bishop! May the huge impact that you made while in Korea continue to reproduce and multiply through all the lives that you touched! The BEST is yet to come as you change the world by connecting to one life /heart / person at a time, while sharing the Divine Truths and Revelations of God. All is takes is One Revelatory Voice sent by GOD to jump start a REVOLUTION...

Man Bishop you've done more travling in one year than most of us would do in a life time and yet you still keep in touch with all of us. Thanks & Welcome Home

Welcome back, Bish...as you know, your son ROCKED Sunday! What an amazing young man...a credit to his parents, his family, his church, his generation, and a leader in the Body of Christ! We are so proud, but you and P-Debye must be "beside yourselves" with it...way to go to y'all! You have raised 4 wonderful children...kudos to you!

All I can say about Uganda, Korea, Brazil, Conyers...and the world through which you are blazing a new trail for God, the one He has laid at your feet to walk in places you've never walked, speak to people you've never spoken to, perceive things you have never perceived, share His love as it has never been shared, and live a life you have yet to live is...GREATER THINGS...GREATER THINGS...oh...and...GREATER THINGS!

WOW! I perceive a new thing is happening...and even Prayer Mountain is filled with evidence of it. I heard Rev Swilley talk about his experience there in the past and I heard your Mom say that those emotions and connections have stirred again at CITN...yes, WE ARE Prayer Mountain...CITN IS a City Set on A Hill and its light is a beacon for the downtrodden, the outcasts, the formerly unloved and so-called "unloveable"...those that have believed they were supposed to sit outside the camp...away from the tent of meeting and the Christ and cry out, "Unclean! Unclean!" They have a home...not only can they come into the camp, they can walk right into the Holy of Holies...just as God intended...the Real God Loves Real People in the Real World...the WHOLE World. No longer are they unwanted and unclean...the message of love CITN is providing is the one God has wanted them to hear...the one He has been waiting for us to speak...the one to which our Words will provide witness. What an amazing moment, an amazing place, an amazing people, with amazing leaders...such a time as this has arrived...GREATER THINGS, my brothers and sisters...GREATER THINGS ARE YET TO COME...GREATER THINGS ARE STILL TO BE DONE IN THIS CITY!

Hallelujah! Glory to God in the HIGHEST, and...

Blessings Blog Fam!

We welcome Korea ! Christ, Korea, and all things are ONE !! Through ancient times the Spirit of God has been transforming Korea into His image. Like a sleeping bear, the presence of God has been dreaming deep within you. And in this time, He is bearing the great God-life into the Earth through you. It is coming forth like a son into fresh life.
Your calm confidence in God is a strength to us. All of your kingdoms enter into the Kingdom of the living God. You who are the temples of God, more beautiful than any ever built by hand, the beauty of Christ within you. We say Korea is one, and at peace with itself and its neighbors. All who come against Her are given over to the correction of almighty God.
In the coastal plains in the west and the south, you are filled with the Spirit. From the highest vapored height to the lowest land of the mystic and majestic mountains, you are filled with the Spirit. Out over the steep drops and out into the skies, flying like eagles from the East Sea, through all the world and into the Yellow Sea, you are filled with the Spirit. From Busan in the east to Mokpo in the west, upon all the thousands of islands, they call upon the Christ and are filled with the Spirit. In the buses His love is like a light. In the taxis His presence brings joy. On the trains His word gives life. Your ferries, and cars, and trucks, are filled with blessings from Father. They are filled with answered prayers. In the temples there is Christ. In the grottos you find Him. He is the Rose of Sharon at the table among your families at every gathering. God pours his revelation and love into your hearts like the monsoons pour out from heaven. You are drenched in mercy and grace and power. You speak to kingdoms, and God's word is delivered from your mouth as the beauty of your autumn leaves. The Spirit is a warmth in your heart in the winters; a coolness on your skin in the summers. Like the prayer rocks, set one upon the other in your land, we are stacked in concert with you, whose foundation is the Christ. Our prayers and praise rise unto God together.

All things are possible.

Amen to all said and penned thus far. Love the visual stimulation in the writings!

In agreement with thousands I pray for peace and reconciliation between North and South Korea, strongholds be broken!
