Review of Empire America

By Mario Liu

“Watch the Middle East” and “the West has Fallen Asleep”

In August 2008, I was praying with Robert Holmes. God said “Keep your eyes on the Middle East. Watch it.”

Exactly three years later, in August 2011, Robert and I were discussing about ‘watching the Middle East.’ We found that both of us have noticed nothing very interesting in three whole years.

So we asked God “In 2008 you asked us to watch the Middle East – Lord is there more?” Continue reading Review of Empire America

Enochs Blessing

enochs-blessingIt has arrived at last!

Three years in the making, “Enoch’s Blessing” is a very practical guide to walking with God. It represents everything Robert knows about relationship and intimacy with God; prayer and hearing God’s voice; spiritual warfare and staying passionate for God your whole life time. Who better to model this book on than Enoch? That one phrase “he walked with God” is basically his entire biography. Robert uses the life and experiences of Enoch to reference a huge range of topics related to walking with God.

It’s like free style rock mountain climbing. Given some physical fitness, some training and some hand-holds, you can learn to climb just about anything. But it does take stamina and a certain willingness to embrace danger. You will be asked to face your fears, challenged to leap across certain precipices and rise to see a magnificent view with unparalleled perspective. Enoch’s Blessing acts as a mountain guide, providing as many hand-holds and short cuts as possible.

Discipleship Coaching

I’m the kind of person that jumps into things I’m convinced about boots and all, and so from that one weekend, I now have a diploma in life coaching. Together with Rob Holmes, I founded Australia’s largest life coaching company and have written a book aimed at equipping disciples with tools for genuine transformation. It’s called “12 coaching conversations every disciple must have.” You can pick it up as an ebook (since the kind folks from Storm Harvest published it for us!) from www.thediscipleshipcoach.com.au

I don’t claim to have a magic bullet… in fact, maybe that’s part of the problem… Too often our entire hope for change is that God would just zap us and fix all our broken bits in an instant if we would just pray, worship and read our Bibles enough.

The coaching tools are not about doing it on our own, or trying to impress God with how good we can become, Instead, they are all about helping us participating in the process of our own transformation. They help us to see what is really going on inside us, and then enable us to courageously embrace choice and responsibility to begin to change our lives from the inside out. These are honestly the best tools I’ve ever had to see transformation in my own life and in the lives of those I have influence with.

I’d love to share with you the things I’ve learn that have really made all the difference.

Feet of the Fathers 2008

  

Robert I Holmes

Five years ago the Lord spoke to me about the desperate need to gather the generations. Not just a youth event, or a business event, not a healing campaign or a prophetic conference… but an intentional focus on bridging the gap between the older generation and the younger ones. God asked us to call it “[at the] Feet of the Fathers.” That first conference we invited overseas speakers such as john L Sandford and Michael Sullivant.

This last week we gathered in Port Macquarie NSW May 1-4, 2008. About 110 delegates attended during the day, and up to 150in the evenings to hear from, meet with and interact about the teaching of some Aussie leaders. John McElroy from Perth, Brian Medway from Canberra, Kerry Medway from Port Macquarie and Vic Smith (originally from Cape Town). It was delightful.

One highlight for me was seeing the humility with which these older man in the kingdom treated one another and those gathered. The deference, the kindness, and self-effacing, Christ promoting way was something to both observe and emulate. The other highlight was seeing the dramatic healing work of the Spirit on Saturday morning.

John McElroy lead in a time of praying for the sick, and utilizing word of knowledge. But rather than focs people upon himself, he invited the members of the Body of Christ to get words of knowledge, then to gather together and pray over those issues. It was Ephesians 4:16 in action. We are waiting for medical confirmation, but healings testified to include: healing from brain disease, arthritis, a damaged left leg (a walking cane was thrown down and he walked normally), twisted bowel syndrome, and a rare disease identified.

God also chose to use a sister in the congregation – who obtained a word of knowledge about “Lois”. Lois has prayed that morning, wanting to know if God still knew her, and if he still loved her, She was waiting for a sign, when this woman called her name, quite spontaneously offering then to pray for her.

Finally, there was not a dry eye in the building when Vic Smith spoke of the Beauty of Brokenness, and played a video about a young man doing a marathon race with his dad’s help. You can listen to the message, and watch the video here.
