Rodney Lensch was a significant leader during the Charismatic Renewal. Personally, I have been significantly influenced over the years by his clear and theologically accurate teachings. His ministry is called Rod & Staff Ministies and he continues to speak prophetically to the church via a quarterly newsletter called Rod & Staff. I just read this fall's issue and would like to share a PDF copy of it with you.
Our pastor was traveling so I got to preach! You can download it here: Living Water
At first glance Understanding the Prophetic Nature appears to be a book targeted at Pentecostal/Charismatic pastors and prophets. If that were truly the case it would be accurate to call it a "niche book." I don’t consider it to be that limited in its scope, but it was recently pointed out to me that even the book's title forces it into a niche market. There is some truth to that assertion. However, when choosing the title I wasn't unaware that, while it is accurate to the focus and purpose of the book, it could very well cause people to categorize it narrowly.
On a Saturday morning, last spring…
This morning I woke up way too early. It was my regular time when I get up, have my quiet time, do a short work out and get ready for work, but it was still way too early. It's Saturday, for heaven’s sake! This is a sleep in day! But, there I was, wide-eyed awake, my wife snuggled under my arm sleeping and still, a breeze stirring the curtain – all at 5:00 AM!
