CA Drought

Please pray for California to receive water (precipitation). This state produces a ton of food, more than I ever knew before i looked up the CA department of food and agriculture web site. The consequences of drought in CA can negatively effect the whole country, easy. Pray for rain, snow, and miraculous intervention on the land. The following are some stats on food production for 2012. Boggles the mind on how much food come out from CA. 

California’s agricultural abundance includes more than 400 commodities. The state produces nearly half of US-grown fruits, nuts and vegetables. Across the nation, US consumers regularly purchase several crops produced solely in California.

California’s top-ten commodities for 2012 are:

Milk — $6.9 billion
Grapes — $4.449 billion
Almonds — $4.347 billion
Nursery plants — $3.543 billion
Cattle, Calves — $3.299 billion
Strawberries — $1.939 billion
Lettuce — $1.448 billion
Walnuts — $1.349 billion
Hay — $1.237 billion
Tomatoes — $1.170 billion

Lords Prayer

Many in the Christian world want to see revival or an outpouring of God hit a group of people, but we await this so that our local pews are filled. The Kingdom of God is bigger than any one church in any single city. If one awoke and all in their city came to the faith, most Christian thought would be about making a church facility bigger and better. When revival comes, and it will, enlarging church buildings will only limit beleivers. We need to re-read the epistles and see how "the gathering" of believers was split into multiple meeting places and how large gatherings lead by Paul were for the training of leaders and not to "do church." Its time to start thinking Kingdom! When we recite the Lords prayer, part of what we are doing is declaring to God that only He can bring the Kingdom and that we agree to partner with Him to release it any way He chooses to do so. This is why we need to remain in prayer with God the Father, because we have to no assume that we don't know how to 100% release His Kingdom. Yes, we make disciples as we go and baptize and cast out and free people, but we need to remember that the New Testament records disciples who were constantly led by the Spirit of God. One of the goals of my life is too awaken every morning, spend time with my best Three Buddies, Father God Jesus and Holy Spirit, and then to ask God, "How do you want me to release the Kingdom for you today?" Im not there  yet...but that is a Kingdom Goal i am learning to partner with a little bit more each day.

Rebuilding Humpty Dumpty

I'm new to this network and frankly I am not a fan of social media. However, after a message i heard from evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, i have changed my tune and have come to the realization that social media is as much a pulpit as the like one would find in a church. My name is Robert Murillo. I am a 5th generation Angeleno ( i'm from LA), however i moved to Orange County, CA to pursue my degree from Vanguard University in Christian Religion/Pastoral studies. I attend a Church/gathering named Safe Harbor Church.I met my wife while attending this fellowship. Well we are a non-denominational church, although my Senior Pastor Dave Langeland was A/G credentialed. So let me explain the impetus of where we are "at" as a gathering of believers. A few years back our church shared a building with a spanish congregation and with another larger group of saints. Real estate prices are HIGH in Orange County CA. Our building was sold and at that time the recession hit us hard. We could not find a church building that we could afford and so leadership gathered together and decided to pray about our course of action. It was realized that we had the option of renting space from school gyms and local hotels, or that we could try to do something we thought was crazy which was break up into house groups and form house churches. After prayer and time having sought the Lord we decided that we would rather spend time in fellowship with each other and God then spend huge amounts of time setting up and tearing down in locations that would be inconsistent. As you can imagine we lost people, good people. In the meanwhile, those who have chosen to stick around have been nudged into larger roles than they perviously were allowed. We have also noticed that those who attend the house-churches our more directly involved.We do run into problems occasionally such as, what to do with children, babies, etc.. But this is where i believe "humpty dumpty" is being put back together, allow me to explain... It seems that in the Christian world that one must be able to prove something before its taken as truth. God always confirms himself to us, probably due to that human quality we innately have. But for the sake of space and time i will provide an overture of our discoveries. Jesus was not resurrected so that we could argue over nuances such as coffee/cake, air conditioning temperatures and ample parking. Jesus came so that we would know how to live and how to release His Kingdom to Earth. That said, 90 minutes devoted to a Sunday service where all eyes our focused on a stage has not brought transformation to this world. We are the Church. The house churches in Acts and the Epistles were not held in one giant building where all came and where all spiritual transactions occurred in a single meeting. Paul was even asked about what a gathering of believers should look like this is was response: "What is the outcome then, brethren? When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification (1COR 14:26)." This is where we are at as a group, learning to do this and releasing the Kingdom!!!
