The Legacy Continues
From time to time, Aglow has received powerfully anointed words related to this ministry’s call, destiny, and future.
Catherine Brown, a well-known prophetic voice from Scotland, is one such voice:
“I saw the Lord holding the word ‘Aglow’ in His hands. He lifted it to His lips and kissed it and the Breath of God moved on the word ‘Aglow’ causing it to grow wings, eyes, hands, and feet. Symbolically, this means having the ability to perceive spiritual prophetic wisdom and understanding (eyes), to move in faith in witness and works (hands and feet), and to soar in the purposes and plans of God in worship and testimony (wings). I heard the Spirit of the Lord say that He is causing Aglow to reach out, to speak out, and to spread out in a measure that the women (and men) of Aglow have not yet experienced. I saw the word ‘Destiny’ come alongside ‘Aglow,’ and in the hands of Christ, there was a divine fusion between the two and the Lord said, ‘Acceleration and multiplication for the witness, the worship, and the work of Aglow.’ When destiny and ministry are fused in the timing of Christ, abundant fruit is produced to the glory of God.“
What a powerful word, particularly in this Jubilee year.
2016 is a Jewish Jubilee year. 2017 is Aglow’s Jubilee year; our 50-year anniversary of ministry. From one city, in one state, in one nation, to now having a presence in over 170 nations of the world! Over the years, Aglow is a ministry that has experienced the powerful moving of the Holy Spirit; a ministry that continues to look toward “acceleration and multiplication of the witness, the worship, and the work of Aglow” by that same Holy Spirit in the days ahead.
Earlier this year, we called for a “Double Jubilee” offering. Two generous groups of donors offered a “Double Jubilee” challenge of $25,000 each as a matching fund offer, for a total of $50,000. That meant that every gift given would be matched, dollar for dollar, up to the challenge amount, which would give us our goal of $100,000 by March 31st.
I am thrilled to say that as of March 31st, the challenge has been met and has even gone a little over the goal! What an incredible blessing for a ministry that reaches around the world giving renewed hope to all.
A GREATER CHALLENGE
I agree with the prophetic word that, “the Lord holds Aglow in His hands.”
I also agree that He has caused Aglow to, “grow wings, eyes, hands, and feet.”
Aglow has “reached out, spoken out, and spread out” over the years, and we have sensed our DESTINY as the Lord has unfolded our future over a period of time.
I believe that we are at a new pinnacle, a new tipping point, and greater point of destiny than ever before.
God has formed a company of men and women who are not afraid of challenges, who will not shrink back from today’s realities. He has trained us, formed us, and made us fit for the day in which we live.
l also believe He has made a way for us to move forward in powerful ways and you are a part of that.
One of the ways we become part of this great company of warriors is to give into the ongoing work of the ministry on a monthly basis. “Now wait a minute,” you say. “She is going to ask for money.” And I boldly say to you, Yes! I am indeed challenging you to not only give into special offerings, but to actually give on a regular monthly basis to Aglow’s forward thrust into the nations. Small amount or large, the amount isn’t the focus; the commitment and the consistency is what we need.
“A Company” is a challenge and an opportunity to be part of a company of world changers! (More info.)
This is what Aglow has always been about: Changing the world, one woman, one man, one family, one city, one nation at a time.
For Aglow to move into “acceleration and multiplication” in greater measure, we need a committed company of men and women to partner with us in a consistent way.
Our goal is that 100% of those involved in Aglow would catch this vision of sowing into the Aglow field, so that the harvest that is ready for reaping is brought into the storehouse.
So, I am asking you; yes, challenging you, to join “A Company” today! This means that you commit to giving a monthly gift that will help us carry the truth of the Kingdom which makes a profound difference in the lives of people around the world.
A GLOBAL COMMUNITY OF BELIEVERS
Just in the past few weeks, the world has been shocked by the attacks in Brussels, Belgium, and in Lahore, Pakistan. Last year there were incidents in Paris, France in northern Nigeria, and so many other places where Aglow is established. My first thoughts are always of our Aglow people on the ground in these locations. We are always relieved to get that first phone call or email that lets us know they are safe. And their response to the terror; to comfort others, to help and assist in any way they might. God’s people are everywhere. God’s light and His comfort are what people are looking for. Aglow men and women are carriers of that light and comfort.
Yes, the world has become a much smaller place. We have family and friends everywhere whose lives are being affected by the cruel terror in today’s world.
We continue to know that, WE HAVE BEEN CALLED FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.
We know that our legacy continues on and we are reaching out with the redeeming power of the gospel.
Thank you for being a part of us. Thank you for becoming a part of “A Company.”
