  1. God Bless, I am involved with a church in Ocala,Fl and currently we are doing a series called A divided nation needs a unified church.
    One of the church’s core values is that we will focus on the things that unite us as “The Church” and not divide us.
    In this season of life we have to be willing I believe to set aside our personal feelings and personal opinion and be focused on Kingdom work.
    We are Kingdom people and like Jesus we should be about doing our Fathers work, showing love ,mercy, compassion, and working to Glorify and enlarge God’s Kingdom and His presence here on earth.
    We communicate our beliefs sometime in our actions or even inactions. I pray that we the Church would always be communicating the love of Christ in all we say and do.

    • AMENโ€ผ๏ธAs Jesus Followers we need to practice walking in the fruit of the spirit of LOVE. I Live in a area that is greatly segregated, I’ve experienced more of racism from those confessing to know the Truth of Jesus purpose, in leadership, its so sad. What I’ve witness profoundly is this “EVERYTHING RISES & FALLS ON LEADERSHIP”!!! If we love Jesus we aught to WALK like Jesus as best we can, when we fall get back up by pulling on his strength that is made perfect in our weaknesses to to Press on because of his goodness and mercy that follow us & are new everyday of our lives, when the fruit of the spirit of LOVE which dwelleth in us is PRIORITY we will see unity & miracles more of God’s presence & OUR mindset/renewal & flesh denial will overcome & DEFEAT RACISM & Every trick of the Devil. The communication of LOVE will RULE & joy will follow. God bless you my brother. ๐Ÿซ‚โœ๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐ŸงŽ๐Ÿฟโ€โ™€๏ธโœŒ๐Ÿพ&โค

  2. I was doing some research about resurrection, and came across a verse I have read countless times, but never made the connection. I share it here for you all.

    โ€œAnd I–in righteousness I will see Your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing Your likeness.โ€ (Ps 17:15). This was prayed at the end of one of Davidโ€™s prayers and I had never seen the connection to resurrection. In the righteousness of Christ, we will see His face. When we awaken in glory, we will be incredibly satisfied with seeing His likeness. Our spirits will be completely satisfied. What an amazing gem of a verse.

  3. Hello all,

    I have not been on in sometime basically because as a couple myself and my wife have been truly struggling with an issue of spiritual abuse from our previous church. I say previous because we left that church because of the issue. We have since found a church we both like and feel quite welcomed there, they are a group of really nice people. I asked that more so for my wife than me you pray for the spiritual healing that she needs and longs for. the hurt goes deep and involves what was a very deep friendship.
    Also, please pray for guidance for me. I have been feeling the call to start my own church/ministry. What keeps running through my mind is “By His Stripes Ministries”. I picture a church that is very much community oriented, deeply involved in the lives of the people of the community both homeless, troubled veterans, families, and regular everyday sinners.

    • Amen brother, I’ve dealt with spiritual abuse. Its a hard thing to deal with. I’m praying for you, your family, and revelation of your ministry. God bless you, amen.

    • Hi John, im do glad you’ve found a place to fellowship and heal. It is better to start a ministry from a place of wholeness. I Pray the Lord will open a door of opportunity when the time is right. Godbless you and your wife mightily in Jesus Name.

    • Yes my brother, I too have been deeply hurt by the spirit of religion, which disguises itself as religion and does not the enemy also portray himself as an angel of light. I walked away from God for many years because of this. Wear dresses, donโ€™t shave your legs, donโ€™t wear makeup……. what did Jesus say about the vessel? Matthew 23:25 kjv Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. 26Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. Realize that all opposition we meet is not the person but the enemy working through the person. Declaring restoration in every area of your lives in Christ Jesus name. Amen

  4. My thoughts about the turmoil in our great country. We are seeing hurdles pop up that we thought had been removed, however, perceptions are a reality and we must communicate with one another. First, when we see a hurdle we wait for everyone to clear it. Then we approach the next hurdle, no one can clear all of these hurdles at once (we must be patient). Once we have all cleared the hurdles together then we are headed toward the tape with a victory in the human race. God bless you all.

    ~ Apostle J. Beare

    • Hello John,

      It is refreshing to read your perspective regarding the turmoil we all face. It is with our hearts that sidebar perceptions, especially when these ideations are not clear when we react to them. Our efforts require we walk in the image of Jesus. I enjoyed your thoughts, thank you 

  5. How can I welcome correction when it hurts?

    Swallowing our pride and choking down the hard truth about ourselves is never easy. But the wise person will sift through the mud for the golden nugget of truth. Being able to accept criticism is a sure sign of a growing, emotionally healthy person.

    Proverbs 12:1

    Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, But he who hates reproof is stupid.


    • We are led by God's wisdom! Truth and faith are solid all we need to do is hold on to it! Trust that we have the capacity to achieve this. You are correct some will sift through the valley to find out they have emerge in the same spot. Growth visit us daily, we have to be ready! It is great to stop by after studies to gain insight related to American Association of Christian Counseling (AACC) on the topic of Ethics.

      Thank you for your thoughts….

  6. Greetings to you all. Just stop by to say hi. I ask for wisdom, knowledge and understanding for everyone of us to fulfill ministries and destiny in Jesus name. Amen

    • Hello Elder Issah,


           Thank you for wishing us well. I know I needed that this coming closes course objective with research paper, discussion board, and examination all  due by Friday.  This the last week, but courses start again August 24, 2020 about a week to breathe. Plus, I just finish Chapter 5 of Ministry of Presence for the Chaplaincy course. Thus, it was great to see your message. With COVID 19 in play we all need to walk in the sand where our feet will follow our  Lord. Thanks again, stay in touch.

  7. "Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter." – Francis Chan

    • Our great fear is nothing greater then our Lord. Success if a fear, yet for all the right reasons God is watching. He will not let you fall with truth and faith in place. Ironically, I referred to the same Quote this pass week in during Liberty University course assignment. Thanks for the message.

  8. Hello all,

    I have not been on here for a while but hoping all are doing and have done well through this COVID-19 scare. One thing I have seen is that a lot of speculation about this being the end of times. Well we know that there is a multitude of things that must happen prior to the coming of our Father. We are in my own opinion living in the lasts days yet remember we know not the day or time and we do not know the timing of God. We can without a question say this is a wake up call from God for the nations to realize He is in control and to get ready the day is not very far away. Thank our Lord that we know were we will go, who we will be with, and who rules our lives. Not the governments, not the law makers, not the world itself but if we are true Christians Jesus Christ, the second in the Trinity, the Word of God who existed in the beginning with God, the light that shines through all darkness. Yes we will be with Him

    • Hi John Athey, 

      I pray all is well with you and your family. I am coping ok. I haven’t been here in a while helping others walk in their purpose. And outreach ministry. Thank you for sharing. It has inspired me. Blessings to you. – Verleshia 

    • Brother John, your words are the hope of all our faith. 


      "Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans." (Prov. 16:3).


      The Lord has placed this verse on my heart lately, and I have been drawing great encouragement from it. 

    • Hello Minister Athey,


      Seeing what may happen through the eyes of others is with caution and requires much review. Let of people have good and bad things to say…yet some are not obeying guidelines. Safety for all is what we all best hope for to change lives .


      I hopeful that you are aware of the Seven Trumpet —God way of warning us of Revelations. Revelation 8:11; Provides deeper a deeper understating of Seven Trumpets. The message that –we will hear are the seven trumpets each warning with specific sounds like no other.


      Let's be concern about the pandemic yet remember God got us! Every morning your feet hit the ground, God made it possible. I read these words during course assignments.


      Revelation 8:1-2; "When he opened the seven seals, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them."


      Thank you for your insight, we are all concern, I like you want the best for all of us. Stay fearless, but safe. I looking forward to hearing from you again.





  9. I am feeling grateful for Executive Elder Michael Mooney's foresight to use technology for God's glory and for kingdom building! 

    The NACM platform keeps us connected, encouraged, focused, and informed. Praise the Lord!

  10. Hello NACM Community,

    I am feeling blessed! angel I just stop by to share how grateful I am for technology, specifically the Internet (World Wide Web):

    1. It allows us all to be more "earth friendly" without having to waste paper and buy stamps.

    2. We can access the NACM organization and all of its members globally.

    3. It keeps us in touch with more people more frequently; anytime of the day or night; and

    4. Lastly, we can access encouraging words and build relationships with access to NACM.

    Praise, glory and honor for God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit!

  11. Hi Craig, great to see you on our new platform. Many of us across the nations have plenty of time now in Lockdown! Godbless to you.

  12. Lord Bless all – I received an email about some change and logged in to see this wonderful new format on my i8 phone. 

    The older post were at the top so pages down for a minute or so ๐Ÿ™‚ to this bottom to see the latest. I guess I’ll have to find the ordering control. 

    Well, we all certainly have to time now! 

    I hope all are well and safe and praising and worshiping every day! We are here! 

  13. PSALM 46:10 TPT.

    Surrender your anxiety!
    Be silent and stop your striving and you will see that I am God.
    I am the God above all the nations, and I will be exalted.

  14. John 14:16

    And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you.  He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth.

    Wonderful Promise to those who love Him. We are never Alone!

  15. Hi to all, a few weeks ago I talked about the importance of a good wifi signal. We were on ADSL, unreliable so changed to wireless. Still not so good, tried rooftop antenna. Tried Marine Antenna no Success. Any ideas?

  16. Hi to all my Nacm brothers and sisters. All of New Zealand is going into lockdown tonight at midnight. Tommorow we expect The Army and Police to be patroling our roads. Difficulties in acessing food and supplies after panick buying. We trust you Lord to bring us through as citizens of your Kingdom.

  17. Hi to all, Covid19 changing so many things in New Zealand. Gatherings of more than 100 forbiden. No non residents or those from other countries allowed in. People are told not to travel within NZ. There is a lot of fear and anxiety in the community. Our church is small enough in numbers to still meet tommorow. TRUSTING OUR GOD.

  18. Hi to all our members. New Zealand has taken radical steps to protect our borders. Many will lose their jobs. There has been panic buying in shops. Some large churches are not gathering. This is also a time of great opportunity in Christ. LOOK UP!

  19. His greatest designed purpose for us: to worship Him. Our whole purpose is to worship Him and be a witness to Him in our daily lives wherever we are. Just think if Christians today were not afraid to speak the Gospel at work, in public places, anytime they had the chance how much witnessing we could do and how many lives could be changed. Todays society makes it hard if not impossible it seems to do this and not much different from the time of the Aspostles and Paul. The biggest difference between us and them is that they were not afraid to speak the Gospel everyday. As a matter of act they lived with the Gopsel over three years and seen it first hand. Imagine if we could spend even one day with our Lord at His feet listening and learning, wow! 

  20. Hi to all, we are rejoicing that rain is falling gently. Thank you Lord! Progress with wifi, we are trialing a rooftop antenna in the hope of more consistant internet. I will let you know how it goes. Godbless all our members in Jesus Name.

  21. Hi to all, having reliiable wifi is an essential to our members online communication. Living in a rural community our choices are very limited. Ive just changed to 4G Wireless. Its still not that good. What is your experience?

  22. Hi to all! Weve got a severe drought in the rural area of NZ where we live. News report stating only 2 more weeks of water left. We are ok, but many here are desperate for rain. Father we look to you Alone.

  23. Hi Stanley, great to see you on our New Platform. Theres lots of help available while learning to use the new site. Challenges make us Grow!Godbless you in Jesus Name.

  28. Luke 6:38

    Luke 6:38 Give generously and generous gifts will be given back to you, shaken down to make room for more. Abundant gifts will pour out upon you with such an overflowing measure that it will run over the top! Your measurement of generosity becomes the measurement of your return.”
