Do We Want Jesus to Show Up?
We cry out to see souls saved, to see the sick healed, to see those in bondage set free, to see the Holy Spirit move as he did in the book of Acts.
Before Jesus came to earth, the way had to be prepared. In fact, if you read the last verse in the Old Testament, you'll see that if the way had not been prepared when Jesus came, a curse would have come upon the earth.
The same holds true for us today. Do we want to see Jesus manifested in and through us, bringing deliverance, healing, and drawing "all men" unto him? Then the way must be prepared.
Choose your connection speed above and join us for worship and a time in the Word, as we explore what it means for the Holy Spirit to work in us, preparing the way for the Lord, making his path straight.

The Voice of One Crying in the Wilderness...
In preparing the way for the coming Messiah, John preached repentance. He was "the voice of one crying in the wilderness, 'Prepare the way for the Lord!'"
Most of the world today is a wilderness, dry and in desperate need of a voice crying out to prepare the way for the soon-returning Messiah.
I've lost count of the number of people who have found our ministry in the virtual world and told us, "I had about decided there was nothing but darkness in the virtual world. Thank you for being a light!"
The fact is, the atmosphere in a virtual world or a physical community is created by the condition of the hearts of the people in that place. The darkness in the virtual community is created by the darkness in the hearts of the people who spend their time there.
We are therefore a voice crying out in the wilderness, "Prepare the way for the Lord!" And he is about to do a great work in the more than two million people in the virtual world.
Currently there are more than 2,053,674 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 30,000 to 100,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Please partner with us today! Ask God what he would have you do as a one-time gift and as a monthly partner.
Additionally, you can ask us to send information about our ministry in the virtual world to your pastor, ministry, or Christian business. When they catch the vision and see what a large and virtually unreached mission field the virtual world is, they will be given the chance to play a part in this powerful outreach. Visit here to request information sent to your church, ministry, or Christian business.
Visit here to become a financial partner or give a one-time gift today. And remember, whatever you do to the least of these, you do unto Jesus.
Prayer Requests & Praise Reports
Serious Accident – Fleur writes, "Please pray for my friend Don, husband of the greatest friend I have. Don was in a severe car accident Saturday and is lucky to be alive His tire blew out and the car rolled 6 sixs and hit a tree. He has severe injuries and a broken neck but not his spinal cord. I believe GOD was looking after him from what I hear he should have died. My girlfriend rang so upset and I was upset already and now I want to be here for her and I and they both need strength to get through this. Worse thing is she lives in NZ now and I cant afford to fly over to be with them something I wa s supposed to do this year but couldnt cause we are in financial trouble. They have a long hard road ahead and she is already suffering parkinsons herself and I am afraid this will make her worse. This couple has been through heaps and dont deserve this as well."
Continued Healing – Ricardo writes, "In Jesus Name: I have just passed the 9th month mark of my one year liver treatment; Praise God the Hepatitis C was "undetectable" @ month 3 & 6....will test for month 9 shortly. As you may know I must take daily meds & a weekly shot of Pegasys; because I am prone to anemia on these meds I also take 2 seperate weekly shots of Procrit & 1 shot of B-12. On my last blood work I was 2 small points on the anemia line, but believing that on the next test there will be NO ANEMIA & MY HEP C WILL ONCE AGAIN BE "UNDETECTABLE". I am feeling like a "pin-cushion" again & have injected so many times in my legs that the skin has turned reddish & scaly. I once again badly need your intercession as I enter 2007 in a better state of health than @ the start of 2006. As an extra added bonus in some, their HIV levels go/stay @ undetectable due to the liver meds---PRAISE THE LORD, that's my case too. So to sum up my HIV & Hep C remains undetectable; I am free of the meds serious side-effects & believing that I will have anemia obliterated from my body on this month's tests. GOD BLESS YOU & A BLESSED CHRISTMAS ! Brother Rick"
Pray For Us! Please pray that God will continue to move through this ministry in an even greater measure. Without your prayers, our labor will not have much effect. But when the work of the ministry is backed by prayer, great things will happen!
