Dear Banner Family,
A very important change is taking place within the Body
of Christ. In the past, many born-again Christians have been
content to allow strong personalities to carry the burden
of ministry, and have supported these ministries.
Presently, this is being changed. The Lord is placing the
responsibility for ministry back within the local Church where
it has always belonged. Therefore, there is a fresh and powerful
working of the Holy Spirit at the local Church level. Those
who have been holding back in ministry because they felt that
they were lacking in "ability," or in "charisma"
are being quickened by the Holy Spirit with a fresh anointing.
These are being equipped to minister to all who are spiritually
needy, but at the present time are very confused.
Since the beginning of 1988 there has been a marked increase
in the visitation of the Lord to His people. This is to prepare
them for ministry in the coming day of the Lord. He is calling
those within His Body who have an intense burden, but felt
incapable, to begin to seek Him for His answer to the present
problems within His Church. That which has failed to be accomplished
through the popular mega-preachers will now be done through
these servants who are willing to be of "no reputation."
The Lord has allowed the present failures that we are witnessing
to take place, that the responsibility of ministry might be
re-channeled to the local Church where it should have been
