There is a major reformation quietly taking place in our Western society. Millions of people have been moving away from the institutional Church and the trend is accelerating. Contrary to the expectations that those who move away and do not attend church are backsliders, many are not! In fact, a vast number moved out of the Church because they are serious about having a vibrant and living faith. Some have moved away because they were used and abused by the very institutions and leaders they had trusted. Among the believers not attending church, there are many who are not only committed, but well trained and able to lead. To use a biblical picture: Many are outside the fold wandering around like sheep without a shepherd, not unlike the situation Jesus encountered in Israel when he walked the dusty roads and ministered, bringing healing and restoration. We read how Jesus saw the crowds and had compassion for them. His ministry flowed from his compassion and love. While on earth as a man, he called and trained disciples and sent them forth to meet the needs of many. In his name they in turn ministered, and in time the Ekklesia-those who responded to his call and were baptized and filled with the Spirit-moved from Jerusalem into the world in faith, sharing his message and ministering in his name. As he promised, he showed up wherever two or three were gathered in his name and nothing could stop this movement. Lives were touched and transformed as ordinary people walked in radical authenticity in faith to be extraordinary royal priests. Nothing, not even persecution, could stop them. However, the foundations of this faith were upended when the Roman Emperor Constantine became a believer. He reshaped the Church to be aligned to the Roman State, and the priesthood of the believer was abolished in favor of an earthly caste of clergy ruling over the laity, thus dividing the body of Christ. It led to the Dark Ages, and when the light again broke through during the Reformation, this division remained. The current quiet reformation is a return to the simplicity of the early Church, and many who are leaving institutional Christianity are responding to the call of the Spirit to walk in The Way. A remnant is being gathered and many are finding that the Lord is true to his word and showing up where two or three are gathered in his name. Ordinary homes are again filled with the Spirit as we meet and minister to one another. Lives are transformed as ordinary people step out in faith to bring hope and healing to the lost and hurting. This little booklet provides a guide to anyone wishing to make his or her home a place where people meet the living Lord. May you find the courage to step out and be the one to make him known in your community.

Like Father Like SonsLike Father Like Sons

It is time for the remnant—the body of Christ, the bride, the Ekklesia—to arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. (Isaiah 60:1 NKJV) How do we rise up? Therefore take up the whole armor of God ...

Our world spins around us, weaving in and out, seemingly out of control. We are dizzy trying to keep up with the changes on all sides. Everything appears to be upside down, backward, steeped in confusion and contradiction. What once was right is now "wrong," and what was wrong is now "right." Caught in this global tornado, we wonder, Is there any meaning to it all? And we ask ourselves the age-old question man has asked since the beginning of time, "Why am I here?"This book is a journey, allowing God to answer those questions for us. He left His "Diary," revealing His plans and desire for us. Starting at the beginning, we allow His Word to unfold His story. We discover that God is love and that He has a plan laid out for us that far surpasses all the confusion and darkness engulfing the world today, a plan open to everyone and that carries a future of joy, purpose, fulfillment, and love. God is indeed our wonderful Fatherlove, and we are His children.The journey of humankind has just begun, a journey of returning to the garden and walking with the Creator--for all eternity."Get ready to be impacted by a theme that will touch a deep place in your heart. It is the theme of "Like Father, Like Sons." Each chapter gave me so much to consider regarding the importance of this theme in our culture today. Brokenness abounds, often because of issues over knowing that we are loved and cherished by our Father in heaven. I consider this book to be so significant for everyone today; every son and every father needs to read this. And every daughter will be blessed in finding a greater love waiting for you. I hope you'll read this through carefully and consider every chapter as written just for you because it was!"Brian SimmonsThe Passion Translation Project 10 | Page

About the Texts
Based on the Scriptures from the Reformation era.

Translated into Spanish from the original texts in Hebrew and Greek by Casiodoro de Reina (1569) and compared with the revision of Cipriano de Valera (1602). Based on the New Testament of Francisco de Enzinas (1543) and on the New Testament (1556) with the Psalms (1557) of Juan Pérez de Pineda.

This material was then translated from Spanish into English by Russell M. Stendal and compared with the Old English Translation of William Tyndale (Pentateuch of 1530, Ploughboy Edition New Testament of 1534, Joshua to 2 Chronicles of 1537, and Jonah). It was also compared word for word with the Authorized Version (by King James) of 1611.

This work is called 'Apocalypse, Remote Vision' in inspiration of the documentary we made, where the idea of it is to address the results of the ability of human beings to see the future. US Navy Remote Viewing Covert Ops Lieutenant Colonel 'Ed Dames' talks about some covert missions – and makes it clear that others he can't talk about – recounting how his nation and Russia use psychics to anticipate events to come. In his day the Israelite prophet Joel had predicted that in the twilight of this age that we are experiencing, many people of all kinds would have intuitive, premonitory and prophetic dreams and visions. I always believed that there were messages in dreams, but I did not know how to interpret what I dreamed, and as time passed I assumed that it was rash to give deliberate interpretations to dreams; but after certain incidents in my family life I began to consider it important not to discard this service that our 'esenaurs' (guardian angels) provide us.
