A Whole New World: The Other Side of the Boat


Nothing To Lose said...

We will talk about what took place ITB today for many years to come. The revelation from Bishop, the awesome praise and worship, and the big sloppy wet kiss from the Holy Spirit. And to think 2009 has only begun. Greatest teacher. Greatest service. Great God. I love this place. It's all good!

I can be abased and I can abound-
This morning a large group from CITN went down to feed the homeless. It was great ministering there...
Going from that to CITN- WOW- count your blessings, name them one by one

You are right- Nothing to Lose-Amen!
When the net went over my head- I had chills. Then a few minutes later I turned around and saw it going around the entire congregation---THAT WAS POWERFUL!

I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!-Thank you Bishop and Pastor Debye!
Thanks JUDAH!!!

Can't wait for Wednesday night

This moring I was out of town and it worked out that I was able to be in church and I am SO GLAD I was. This was definitely a word in season, one I'm passing on to everyone I know who can probably use to check the other side of the boat too. Love to you Bishop and love to BITN.

JR said...

Great Service today as usual Bishop. From now on I'm gonna
start casting my net on the other
side of the boat when things don't
work out as I had planned.
Thank You Bishop Swilley.

Bishop, fantastic message today. I really don't know how I want to say this, but as I was listening to you speak, you being in a boat and all, it really had the appearance and sensation of what it might have been like listening to Jesus speak back in the day. You should have came out in clothes styled from 2,000 years ago. His Spirit and presence is defiantly alive in you and the congregation! And Pastor Debye, when you spoke today, chills ran up and down me like a live wire. A most powerful exhortation indeed!

Did I type "defiantly in you?" I meant to say "definitely in you."

Today, was, something special. I left feeling like I haven't felt in such a long time. The praise? The message itself? (gotta love an object lesson!) The HS showing up and out? All of it? The new wineskin IS HERE. Thank you, Bishop for changing the way YOU see things so that we can embrace the change in ourselves.

The net... I felt like I resembled the lady with the issue of blood. It was passing by so fast overhead, that I had to work my way forward to catch the end of it as it went by. Anyone and everyone who means something to me is going to hear and/or see this from today... going to go be a fisher of men.

Can't get THAT SONG out of my head either... WHOA, How He Loves Us!!

Awesome Service Today

New Year
New Day
New Place To Fish
Those who sent negative vibes
In the past Now separated
Fishing in waters that are alive
The net has been thrown vast and wide
In Him we are standing by His side
A new Life was given today
The situations that held us back
Newness comes and we shouldn't look back
New things are coming that will take us to a new level
The net brings a harvest of new opportunities
Anything is possible
It's up to us to set the net and pull up the blessings He has for us
No more negativity
Cover your brother
Pray and see
The on the other side of the boat you can be set free

Friend4Life said...

Whoa, He loves us....Oh my what a way to begin a year, week..Whoa, He loves us

Yeah, I had to make sure I touched the net, too-G8trgrl. It looked so neat passing over the people.

Thanks, Bishop!! When is the next boat trip??

~Peace, Love, & Dream Big~

Ps--Happy "11th" month Anniversary, BITN!! Love ya more than words can say....((muah))

p chad said...

I've got one thing to say...

I don't have time to maintain these regrets, when I think about the way,

You are the man Bishop! Thank You!

peacemaker said...

Great word today and it was a beautiful thing that everyone "got it". There was a tangible, collective sense of agreement ITB. Great things are in store...

Hello Everyone,

Today’s service excelled beyond measure. Many walls crashed, leaving a clearer field. The desire before the second worship service for anyone that desired God to make fundamental changes, or said another way, to unveil fundamental clarity is in effect.

With that, I have a partially selfish request. This community is the only one I know with the ability and fluid connection in The Spirit to have an immediate impact.

Please pray for clarity, for The Pur of God to consume all interference that clouds the clarity, and overwhelmingly show what is real in my eyes and those involved in this situation I am writing about. It is a private matter, so please forgive the lack of detail. Please simply pray this for ‘Z’ which will cover me and all those involved directly or indirectly. This prayer will likely be beneficial to everyone in general, and I ask that in this prayer at large, anyone who will, please include 'Z’ in particular.

My specific ‘sight’ may be extremely clouded, and in selfishness, I ask especially for the clarity to be unlimited, and everything in me engulfed by The Consuming Fire and your prayer.

I love everyone connected to this blog and CITN in any way. This clarity is very important to me and the others, I humbly present this here, now - From your heart to God’s word. Simply send your word out and it is done.

Godspeed and thank you.

Bishop Jim Swilley said...

Thanks so much, everyone...

And thanks, Friend4Life, for reminding me it was the blog's monthaversary...I completely forgot...

Again, thanks, all...your words mean a lot to me...

Yve said...

Eric, Let there be light..and the light of this world will open your eyes.

I speak a hundred-fold return to you as a harvest for the hours of seeds you have labored in pouring into your siblings.

WE love you too and He lives in you and In "Z" and He is perfecting everything that concerns you!

I speak Peace to you, my brother!

In His Light,

We, my husband and I are so inspired. What else can I say about a message like that. I am still chewing. I think think that I will be talking about this for some time to come.

You allow the Lord to use you in such an awesome way. And Pastor Debye too was tremendous with the little that she shared.
We are so blessed to be a part of a ministry that is so full of Word. What a wonderful example of God's love...
I am still chewing...peace

Sounds like I really missed it yesterday.
My husband and I were enjoying our Christmas gift to each other. We were at Atlantic Station under 'le grand chapiteau' for Cirque's production of KOOZA. An excellent day, indeed! And yes, I once again want to run away with the Cirque. Regret that I missed what sounds like an awesome service, and wish we could've been ITB, but we chose the 1pm show... mostly so we wouldn't have any trouble getting home in the dark. That happened once before... it wasn't pleasant!
Anyway, sounds like Sunday, the 11th was a great day for all.
Erik, clarity to you regarding 'Z' and anything else that you may need clarity on!
And wow, next month the blog will be a year old. Exciting!

Nothing To Lose said...

Gotcha covered.

Sweepea said...

What a service Bishop! I was blessed that Ma was back at church and curious about the boat - and then your dynamic Word and the praise that followed blew me away. What an awesome start to the new year and a fresh start for CITN. The best is yet to come! (And thanks to Pastor Debye for rockin' the boat!0

"A Whole New World: The Other Side of the Boat"

Here's what I hauled out of the net: He can show us His world.

Jesus manifested Himself numerous ways. Even those in His close-knit circle didn't recognize Him, immediately. That had to have splashed their neuropeptides a little; so want to hear Him laugh! (John 21:7)

One wave, He's Rabboni... no... wait... He's the catch of the day. Abundant providence, and a net that wouldn't tear. A whole new body - shining, swimming endorphins! Shimmering, He's splendidly morphin'!

Bish said Jesus invaded people's space. That makes Him a space invader. Tell me Jedi, now, where does His Light force hide?

A whole new world! A new fantastic point of view...

Catch anything, yet?
No one to tell us NO!

Or where to go... (cuz, He's already been there & hell ain't that hot compared to God)

Or say we're only dreaming... He will open our eyes - even if it takes Visine in our ears

Take us wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
God's Galactic Enterprise

Agreement is a word that I have been hearing repeatedly in recent days and PM's mention of it again refreshed it once more. I heard that word at the Bodybuilders meeting this past Wednesday so many times that the number can't be remembered.

Yesterday was an unusual time of revealing the agreement of CITN. That was made apparent when the first casting of the net to the other side caused the boat to rock a little and most of the crowd gasped so that the collective sound of it was quite audible.

This not only affirms the great love energy that is continuously transferred from the congregation to their Bishop but the very rocking of the boat signaled that an immediate catch is in store for all who follow the example of this lesson. This brought a smile to my face that could have been misinturpreted but there is no misunderstanding for me that everything about this lesson is important for the hearers/seers/observers.

Elle, take my advise and get a copy of this on dvd, and that goes for anyone else who is in question of what happened at CITN yesterday. I have questions myself and will be getting a copy to assist in proper absorption of the nutrient packed meal that is still in my digestive system.

Along with agreement , the word that is strongest in my soul from the teaching is the use of the keys of the Kingdom. My new mantra for this year is now the term 'found it'. Thank you for that Bishop. Your obedience to the Holy Spirit has once again given clarity to the purpose of CITN's mission.

There was tremendous agreement confirmed in your word by Pastor Debye and it flowed back and forth between the two of you like the creative energy of the cosmos.

It was sweeter than any dessert I have ever tasted though, what the Holy Ghost did to confirm the agreement of all present by hearing both your prayer for all to get this lesson as a point of contact and Pastor Debye's admonishment of the congregation to catch on to the net and flow with this ministry.

What many did not see as you began to flow in this direction is that you first laid the net onto the communion table. From there you told those closest to that alter to pick up the net. That was done but it just remained there in their hands until you gave the direction for it to be passed into the surrounding worshipers. From there it moved with its own life across the entire congregation.

It is also very significant that you started a second net in the other direction by handing it directly into the crowd. This shows the great confidence that you have in the Holy Ghost to communicate outside the view that you and I hold dear concerning the table of understanding who Jesus is for us. There was also an admonishment to us, from the Holy Ghost speaking through you, to not be surprised if the Lord speaks to us in a way different to anything we have ever known. That word was confirmed by this flow.

The I Am is satisfied with the orginal work done from the foundation as good enough to cover all and this day, 01/11/09 was a witness to that reality.

There is way too much to write here about this teaching and the truth is that the incoming ministries of the word through you are going to be even greater. It is my feeling that it will be quite like a building that will need this teaching as a foundation to understand its structure.

My soul is racing like an overjoyed child that has just found a prized toy that had been misplaced. You go CITN.

Still moving in the apartment. we have got way too much stuff for this place (but we will need it when we move in our other house). I like this apartment, but it will take some imagination to get this stuff arranged. We are still walking sideways in here. and we have three storage units rented with couple more loads to move when it dries up and I can hire someone to move it. I cant anymore..the mind is willing but the flesh is weak...well actually I still have a lot of strength - too much for my frame according to Doc, he says I could blow something else out real easy with the joint disease, then there is the arthritis and spurs, then there is the pain, then there is the nerve damage...blah blah blah.

Hey self, Listen, you sold the house you needed to sell..HELLOOO, you have the storage units, you have a place to live, you have plans to move into another house, you have heat, you have food, you have transportation, you have a good computer and INTERNET you are on right now, God has a wonderful plan for you just on the other side of the boat....
all things work together for good by Him who works all things out for our good according to His plan and purpose. This will turn out for my good and the good of others. If God is for us who or what can be against us (me) I know that the LORD is in control of everything in my life even down to the number of hairs on my head; My God what am I complaining about? I have a Helper that created the universe, a Comforter that Loves me bigger than the sky, A Savior that gave His life for me and saves me daily in ways that I am not even aware of. Praise God, Even this experience is part of this Salvation Process....I AM BEING SAVED THROUGH ALL THIS!!!!!


OK I feel better..

The couch/alter is open...

Erik, I've prayed for you since reading your request this AM.

Something keeps coming to me that is good for all to consider. Yesterday's comical description of Bishop getting eye drops in his ears instead of eyes along with Izumi's observation of that being important and my own trouble with getting more drops in my ears than eyes when trying to self medicate for tired eyes, all of this tells me to look for clarity more with my ears than eyes.

Erik, you are an anointed man of God and have already recieved your clarity. Thank you for including us in agreement for that answered prayer.
