The Spirit Of Prophecy Is Still Working In God’s People

Easter’s over — the marketing hype; the retail rituals of buying baskets, bunnies, cards and clothes; and the religious rites.  Easter candy’s cheap — 50%, 75%, or even 90% off now.  We’ve moved on . . . but Jesus Christ still roars.  Can you hear Him?

“I’m alive and present with you!  Not for a holiday, but forever!  Everyday that you live, I’m calling your name; seeking a relationship with you the way a poor woman searches for her misplaced money.”

“Stop running away, pretending I’m not relevant in a texting and tablet world.  Who invented instant communication?  Not smartphones — Me!  I don’t message you in the palm of your hand — My voice roars inside of you — in your heart and in your mind!  (I am The Voice!)”

“It takes great effort not to hear Me, you have to drown Me out.  I am continually spraying you with conscience, conviction, inspiration, flashes of insight, the appreciation of beauty.  I’ve given you intellect, surrounded you with mysterious complexity, breathed into you life, displayed love and sacrifice.”

“Yet you think I’m hiding — distant or non-existent.  Hogwash!  You’re surrounded by Me the way a fish is surrounded by water.  Why won’t you hear?  Why won’t you see?  Why won’t you follow and obey Me every moment of every day?”

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @
