Reaching for Prophetic Community
February 9th, 2013 – Posted by Leilani Makuakane

For decades, I’ve heard Gary and Marilyn Hargrave lay out a vision of prophetic community. Like the school of prophets in the Old Testament, prophetic communities are groups of believers who live and teach their children the ways of the Lord as outlined in the scriptures. These communities of people worship, work, live, and serve the Lord together.

Purim Celebration at Grace Chapel of Honolulu
March 20th, 2012 – Posted by Jeremiah Gruenberg

On Wednesday evening we enjoyed a celebration of the Jewish Feast of Purim that was both fun and deep. This year, we presented the story of Esther with “dinner theater.” Actors were planted throughout the crowd instigating the action and encouraging everyone to participate. The theme was “Gangsters,” because the villain of the Purim story (Haman) was basically a gangster. Some people wore 20’s outfits from the era of Al Capone, and some went with a modern, hip-hop gangster get-up. The costumes ranged from simple to outrageous; people had a blast dressing up and pretending to be a part of Mordecai’s posse, Haman’s gangstas, the King’s Kru or Esther’s home girlz.

Not Just Persevering
September 2nd, 2011 – Posted by Jeremiah Gruenberg

Imagine this scene. A handsome man and a beautiful woman, married for twenty-five years, walking on a beach in Hawaii. The moon is full, and the waves crash gently on the beach.

The man says, “After all these years, I still love you passionately. How do you feel about our relationship?”

Appropriation
August 25th, 2011 – Posted by Jeremiah Gruenberg

The spiritual principle of appropriation is vitally important in a relationship with God. I would define appropriation in this way: It is the determined act of receiving. A great scriptural example of appropriation is the woman with the issue of blood. And a woman who had a hemorrhage for twelve years, and could not be healed by anyone, came up […]

Knowing the Father’s Love
July 30th, 2011 – Posted by Jeremiah Gruenberg

I Peter 2:21 tells us that Jesus Christ is our example. I want to focus on one aspect of His life that should be an example to us: Jesus had a complete and total knowledge of the love of the Father. The greatest example of this is when he was on the cross, and he cried out “My God, why […]

What is the School of Prophets?
June 27th, 2011 – Posted by Jeremiah Gruenberg

The Shiloh School of Prophets conference begins tomorrow. I’ve attended the conference for the last six or seven years, but will not be able to make it this year. However, I’m still very excited about it because I have seen how God has always moved in amazing ways in people’s lives during this time. It’s called the School of Prophets for a reason.

Today is the Day of Pentecost
June 8th, 2011 – Posted by Jeremiah Gruenberg

We are officially in the time of the Feast of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit fell upon the early believers. When they began to speak in tongues that day, there were many around who mocked them. Peter, however, stood up and addressed the people of Jerusalem and thousands came to understand and believe. This is all amazing stuff, but think […]

I would like to continue the topic of my last post, in which I discussed the process that occurs between Passover and Pentecost. First, let’s revisit a Scripture.

Passover, Pentecost, and the Church
May 4th, 2011 – Posted by Jeremiah Gruenberg

We are in the fifty days between the Biblical celebrations of Passover and Pentecost. In the New Testament, Christ was crucified and resurrected during Passover, and the Holy Spirit fell on Pentecost. This is a very crucial fifty days in the Bible, because it was the time that Jesus Christ appeared to many people in his resurrected form (Acts 1:3). There is an Old Testament picture that shows us what we should have faith for in this.
