An Open Letter Regarding HEAL THE NATIONS

0

Heal the Nations is our annual conference.  On Wed 20th August, our second Heal the Nations kicks off.  We have an amazing array of guest speakers and we have a great worship leader.  We also have great ushers and hospitality people—a massive thanks for everyone who is involved.  I really love and appreciate you and your help!

Last year Heal the Nations helped people so much, and this year it is about to do the same again.  There is something about hearing the Word all day, worshipping all day and being in a positive atmosphere.  Healings happen, financial breakthroughs happen.  Lives change.  Freedom comes.  Vision comes.

I am just writing this to say that I want you to come to Heal the Nations, or at least as many sessions as you can.  Some people have contacted me and said “who is speaking when”… I have told them and indeed the speaker schedule is online—unlike a certain conference I have just been too where it was cloak and dagger!  But the truth is that if you come to hear one speaker although you will be encouraged and inspired by the Word, the whole conference has been planned with me carefully listening to God and asking who to speak and who to bring.  The messages I believe will blend together (like they did last year with each speaker mentioning that God was calling us to a feast) in a special way to inspire you and give you a healthy balanced diet that you may grow thereby.

I don’t want people to come so I can say “there were xxx people at Heal the Nations.” I don’t care—in fact the less people the more personal attention we all get!  I don’t want you to come to give in the offering, it has all been paid for in advance because of the generosity of this church and the wise planning of finances.

I want you to come because I know it will be the most awesome time of spiritual growth in your life.  I go to conferences, I know about many conferences—I know some are all about money, I know some are all about bragging that our conference is bigger than that conference.  I know that we are doing Heal the Nations for you.  God wants you to be healthy, He wants you to receive the Word in its entirety, He wants you to be a church changer, a nation changer, a world changer.  He wants you to be fully equipped to do the works of ministry.  All of the preachers at Heal the Nations are equippers—their heart is your best.  They wouldn’t be invited if it wasn’t so.

So whatever you are doing Aug 20th-23rd, plan to be where you can be equipped to be all God wants you to be.  Plan to be where the Word and the Spirit come together, where grace and faith are mixed together, and where dreams come true! 

Plan to be at an event that is going to help you, heal you, equip you, inspire you, challenge you, encourage you and lift you!

Plan to be where revival isn’t prayed for but is happening.  Plan to be where you are going to find out your destiny and begin to walk in your destiny.

Plan to be at Heal the Nations.

Ever Wondered How Andrew Wommack Ended Up in England?

0

This is how, in Andrew’s own words:

(Yes, this is another blog post in light of Dave Duell’s imminent visit to Dagenham!)

In September of 1989, I was holding a tent meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was the night that hurricane Hugo hit. The tent was flapping in the breeze, and we needed to drop and tie it off. But just before the service ended, Pastor Dean Mellon gave me a prophecy that changed my life and ministry.

 

He said, “you have a nation of the world on your heart, and you know exactly which nation I’m speaking of”. In less than a month, you will meet a man who will be a porter, a door opener to the whole nation.

I knew exactly which nation the Lord was speaking of, and I knew in my heart that the Lord was about to bring my dreams and vision concerning the U.K. and Europe to pass. I’ve had the U.K. on my heart ever since I took a trip to Europe in 1968. While in London, I spent hours walking the streets, praying for the people and believing God that someday I would get the opportunity to minister to them.

 

However, it’s not wise to just take a prophecy and run with it. If it was really the Lord speaking to me through this man, then it would come to pass without my help. Two weeks later at our U.S. Ministers’ Conference in Buena Vista, Colorado, I noticed that Will Graham from Rugeley, England was listed as an attendee. I figured Will was the man the Lord had spoken about, but I didn’t say a thing to anyone.

 

In the very first session, my good friend, Dave Duell, was ministering and calling people forward for prayer. He called Will to the front and said. “Will, God has made you a porter, a door opener to all of the U.K.” BINGO! That was it. This had to be the man the Lord had spoken to me about in Charlotte.

 

I told Will about that prophecy I received in Charlotte and asked him what he thought. He said his church had received a special offering to send him to the conference to get Dave and me and bring us to England. Praise the Lord! A few months later we opened our first international office in Coventry, England, and its been going strong ever since.

 

We have distributed hundreds of thousands of tapes and CDs through our European office and have thousands of people on our mailing list. We minister in many churches and hold two conventions in the U.K. each year. The Gospel Truth television program is broadcast daily in the U.K. on the God Channel International, which also reaches all of Europe, Asia, and Africa.

The open doors to the U.K. and Europe were a supernatural opportunity that came directly from the Lord. We are committed to walking through every door the Lord opens for us and minster the nearly too-good-to-be-true news of God’s love to hungry people throughout Europe.

Dave Duell’s Heart and Message

0

This is in preparation for Dave Duell preaching at Tree of Life Church (in less than 24 hours!).  It is an article from his website where he outlines his “life message”:

“The concept of an angry God has so permeated the Church that when someone has the audacity to challenge the accepted perceptions, it sounds strange to our ears. But you must get this truth into you-God loves you with an everlasting, unconditional, unwavering, unalterable, non-cancelable, perfect, pure love. There was nothing that you ever did to cause Him to love you in the first place. There is nothing you can do to cause Him to quit loving you. And there is nothing you need to do to keep Him loving you. He has always loved you and He always will love you. If you have given your life to Him, He has adopted you into His family and you are a joint-heir with Christ and every spiritual blessing is stored up for you in heavenly places. (Eph. 1:3)

When we get this perception into us of how much God loves us, it will change us. When you understand that God is love and that God sooooo loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son to save us, it will change the way you look at the world. It will change your perceptions. It will change your values. It will change your decisions. It will change the very way you live.”
(Excerpt taken from teaching article,” How Should We Then Live?” by Dave Duell)

This is OUR MESSAGE. We want you to know that God loves you with a passionate, undying, eternal love and that He came to set you free to really live. You will read about this unconditional Love in all our articles and books and hear about this Love in all our video and audio messages. Partake of a generous serving of some good news!

Opinion of 2008 US Election (Dave Duell)

0

We all have different opinions. These varying opinions caused our country to elect Barack Obama to be our next president. Yes, many of us are disappointed that a president was not elected who has the same values as many believers have. Yet, it is a fact that Obama’s victory has filled most African Americans and many others with a deep sense of joy. Contrary to some opinions, God is not in control. He did not control the outcome of this election. He does not do whatever He wants because of his “sovereignty.” He has not made us puppets. He allows us to choose. But God promised to bring good out of everything for His children (Romans 8:28). We are expecting that to happen on a daily basis. We do not believe our nation will be destroyed by this election. It is not a time to despair; it is a time to pray with vision and with hope. We cannot look to a man or system to supply our every need. Many have done that in this election. Only God can be our Source. God wants us to live in victory regardless of what is going on around us. He has infused us with His Holy Spirit, with His strength, and we can do anything that He calls us to do. Paul, the apostle, instructs us to pray for all in authority “so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity” (1 Tim. 2:2, NASB). God’s will is for America to experience peace and prosperity so that we can continue to impact the nations with the Good News. We pray that the Holy Spirit will soften Obama’s heart, so that he will be willing to hear and be guided by His voice. We pray that Obama will govern with wisdom from God. We pray that our nation will enjoy God’s peace and blessing during the Obama administration. As our pledge of allegiance so aptly says, we are “one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
