WHERE WE ARE HEADED NOW
After Elijah's departure, Elisha carried Elijah's mantle and continued the work he began. And he expanded it! Mark's parents passed their mantles to him and Maureen before going to be with Jesus. So, as an Elisha to their Elijah, here's how Elijah Rain will be expanding the work John and Paula began:
John and Paula laid down a solid foundation which, over the years, Mark and others refined and expanded. The plan was always to bring inner healing into the churches so God's people could learn to minister the Holy Spirit's healing to each other.
To further that end, we will expand our teaching on how to follow the Holy Spirit in inner healing, and offer more mentoring on how to master the practical how-to's through hands-on practicums.
In this day of increasing lawlessness, we'll put greater emphasize on how the natural law of sowing and reaping affects our lives and relationships. We can no longer assume that this is firmly a part of every Christian's worldview.
As sin and occult activity increase, demonization is very much on the rise. There will be more on deliverance from demons.
We will concentrate more on the resurrection side of healing. Sin is what we do, not who we are. Therefore, putting to death sin patterns should lead to discovery of our true identity in Christ ——walking in God's original design for each of us. And it should lead us to affirm others' identity. We need to learn to walk
in a resurrection lifestyle.
Transformation should naturally lead to reconciliation. There will be more on marriage, and on turning the hearts of fathers and mothers to their children.
Inner healing removes sinful compulsions, but there are still habits, and some habits die hard. We'll share more about how
to walk out your healing in practical cross-centered ways.
. . . And there will be more, as the Holy Spirit reveals.
John the Baptist came in the spirit and power of Elijah, and his primary task was to issue a call to repentance. Since we accomplish that task one-on-one through prayer counseling,
it makes sense that when we offer “counsel” to the Body of Christ, it will come from a pastoral counselor's perspective.
Having counseled persons from all over the world, we have
a unique vantage point on what God is doing in people's hearts collectively. We'll share those perspectives as the Holy Spirit leads!
