The Coming Mighty Wind
By Linda Bunting and Harriet Wearren
In 1973, the year John and I, along with Wade and Harriet Wearren moved into our new homes on Poplar Lane, I asked Norman Grubb if there was anyone else on the planet that he shared with, Paul's mystery of the gospel in Col.1:28 and Galatians 2:20. His answer was "Oh yes, my dear, I visit folk all over the country." So, I asked him if we could have a house party and invite them over for a week-end of sharing. In 1974 we hosted 40 people, the next year 80 and from that time, we outgrew the house and began meeting yearly outside in a tent with a crowd that grew to 250 coming from all over the world.
After 40 plus years, the Spirit clearly spoke to us saying; "Shut Louisville Down." Age was taking a toll on us and since we were sensitive to the Spirits ways, Harriet and I agreed to have lunch to discuss what we thought He was trying to tell us. She began by saying she thought we should be finished. Then she asked me: "How does that make you feel?" To which I replied, "It makes me very sad but I take to heart how He is moving in you." We parted saying to each other, "We will trust HIM to change one of us." After a few days He said to me: "Unto every thing there is a season," which gave me peace that this was His word, to us, to do. We decided to have one last time together and then let it go.
The Sole Purpose of Our Creation
By Norman Grubb Union Life Magazine
It has been over three years since I laid bare my heart and mind in the book YES I AM (which I thought might be my last before I join the Hebrews Eleven “cloud of witnesses”). In it I had sought to do as Priscilla and Aquila did for Apollos: “expound the way of God more perfectly.”
But in some areas I now feel that I did not adequately underline certain vital points. So I set out in sixteen sections some extra sharings in the hope of giving certain areas of the book further clarity [continued]
The original is on the Norman Grubb here.
As I read this today, I've added just a little of the thoughts Our Father shared as I read.
I pray you are blessed beyond measure, your cups run over, and you get a revelation of your true identity. Amen
"Thanks be to God which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (I Corinthians 15:57).
When God is pleased to reveal His Son to us, we will learn that
Victory is not a thing, but a Person; that Victory is not an experience, but a
Man; that God does not give me a thing called victory, but has given me
His Son in the place of victory in order to be my Victory. Then Victory will
never be future-tense and far-away, but Ever Present and Now. For Victory
is Christ. And Victory lives within you.
Thus, Victory has nothing to do with the devil, and everything to do
with Christ. Since most Christians have more faith, assurance and
reverence for the devil than they do for the Lord Jesus, it is easy to see why so
many are defeated.
