END-TIMES MESSAGE TO MINISTERS AND MINISTRIES WORLDWIDE

 

My fellow servants in the vineyard of the Lord, it is already midnight and we are presently in the last minutes of extra time given to the Church before the appearance of our Lord to take His Bride. The pillar of cloud by day has turned into the pillar of fire by night and by implication the message of the end-times according to Mathew 25:6 should be “Behold the Bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet Him”. This message is a warning for preparation and I therefore appeal to all god-fearing ministers and Christian ministries worldwide to as a matter of urgency, prayerfully seek God’s face to confirm this assertion, and make special arrangements similar to that of Noah’s Ark to get believers prepared for the coming of the Lord.

 

The Noah’s Ark Household Fellowship is not a church in the regular sense of the word. It is a ministry set up as a vehicle to provide timely and ordained spiritual supplement for believers in these last days.

 

Please feel free to clone or modify the Noah’s Ark Household Fellowship and her Weekly Study and Prayer Outlines as the Lord leads you. Our collective and ultimate goal is that the Church is gotten to prepare herself continuously ‘Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ’ (Ephesians 4:13 KJV).

 

 

‘Testing The Waters’

 

Recognizing the initial uncertainties and reservation associated with adopting something new, we encourage believers to go through the ‘Testing the Waters’ phase by first of all using this monthly outline in a personal capacity. They are to study the Charge and follow the weekly Study and Prayer Points in their quiet time. By the time they have come to appreciate its value (usually within a month), they are then encouraged, in the spirit of the ministry, to involve and engage their families, friends and neighbours, in the ministry’s weekly one hour fellowship.

 

 

 

Church Activities

 

LOVE OUTREACH PROGRAMME

In the Noah’s Ark Household Fellowship, our giving has one basic objective – the execution of all components of the Love Outreach Programme. Therefore, no financial returns from regular offerings should be made to the mother body - Gideon Bridegroom Ministry International (GBMI), by Family Fellowship Units or Neighbourhood Assemblies. The Noah’s Ark Household Fellowship units worldwide are completely independent with respect to their finances. However, support for the ministry’s mandate (the spreading of God’s end-time preparation warning to His worldwide Church) through donations from individuals and ministries is welcome.
