Appointed: A Man After God’s Own Heart!

The Lord has sought for Himself a man after His own heart, and the Lord has commanded him to be commander over His people.

1 Samuel 13:14, New King James Version

Have you ever wondered what it really means to be called a man after God’s own heart? If so, you’re in good company. You’d be surprised to know that even David wondered the same.

In David: The King of Jerusalem, a brand-new musical production by Robert and Elizabeth Muren, you’ll journey through the life of a lonely young shepherd boy from Bethlehem. Being the youngest of several impressive-looking brothers, David was constantly being overlooked. Even his father, Jesse, didn’t consider him when the prophet Samuel asked him to present
his sons.

David had, however, developed an intimate relationship with his unseen Father by whom he was always seen. Robert puts it this way: “God, his heavenly Father, saw him and chose him before all others in the
whole nation.”

His far-from-perfect life was smeared with adultery, murder, betrayal, and the loss of children. But one thing never changed: his unwavering desire to please only his heavenly Father. Robert says, “Despite weaknesses and failures, he was desperate for God, and he passionately sought His wisdom and
His Word.”

The Murens do an amazing job of capturing the essence of David’s life. If you’ve seen their world-class productions God with Us or The Heart of Christmas, you know you won’t want to miss this one. You’ll be treated to a memorable performance with family-friendly entertainment you can trust. Every member of the family can identify with David, the hero for all ages.

You’ll also enjoy the musical renditions with a modern-worship twist, as David tells story after story of God’s amazing grace.

In the musical, the mature King David starts to prepare Solomon to be his successor. However, Solomon doesn’t fit the typical mold of a king. And just like David, Solomon was the least expected to ascend to the throne. David shows, through the story of his own life, that man looks at outward appearances, but God looks at the heart. Through his vulnerability, he and Solomon discover why God called David a man after His heart.

Elizabeth explains, “The main story is not about David and Solomon. . . . The main love story is about David and God. . . . And the one thing I want people to leave with is the understanding of how God desires intimacy. The main theme throughout the story―past and present―is . . . discovering the relationship that David had with God.”

“Come celebrate with us, and discover why David was a man after God’s own heart,” says Robert. “Witness how the rejected shepherd boy from Bethlehem becomes the king of Jerusalem!”

This one-night-only musical takes place on Friday, November 2, 2018, at 7 p.m. and kicks off our weekend of epic proportions! On Saturday at 2 p.m., we will continue the celebrations with special guests Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis, as we dedicate our new auditorium to the glory of God. The festivities culminate on Sunday at 4 p.m., as Andrew Wommack hosts The Event with Tony Perkins and featured speaker former governor
Mike Huckabee.

Imagine spending a fun, godly weekend in the beautiful mountains of Woodland Park, Colorado, and imagine joining thousands of others as we celebrate God’s grace.

Now, turn that imagination into reality!

How David Got His Heart Back

You may not be able to relate to this, but one of the things I’ve struggled with for years is becoming overwhelmed with a certain thing and then just shutting down. In my mind, the scope of it would be just too much to deal with in the moment, so I’d opt to put it off or not to do anything. Instead, I’d just sit back and chill for a while.

Sometimes, a while lasted months.

When I’d eventually get motivated, I’d turn into a machine! I’d feel like I could stay up all night—whatever it took—to get a thing done. I’d be determined, laser-focused, and almost fiery about it. What changed in me was finally seeing that the thing was not so tough after all. I’d gotten my head around it. (Part of me felt a little guilty too.)

However, this wouldn’t last long. Once I finished whatever needed to be done, I’d go right back to chilling. Can anyone relate?

Then one day, I realized the chronic cycle I’d been in. Immediately, I was upset. All the Enemy had to do was tempt me to feel that something was overwhelming, and I would do the rest. Talk about taking chess pieces off the board!

This was a heart issue that I needed to deal with. And I was motivated. What did I do? I did what Andrew teaches in Lessons from David:

“If you can get your heart established, then actions will not be a problem.”

Yeah, but how do I do that?

“Again, Proverbs 23:7 says [that] as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”

So, I’ve got to think differently. Once I saw this, I began to recognize when I felt overwhelmed, and I would shut down the temptation. I knew if I didn’t change the way I thought, I couldn’t change my heart.

Andrew continues,

“You are [not] just born with a perfect heart. You have to cultivate this.”

Are you saying that if my heart is perfect, then my actions will be perfect?

“It does not mean that your actions are perfect, but it does mean that [in] your heart, you long for the things of God. You have a personal relationship with God. You are sensitive to God. You are seeking God.”

Okay, I think I got it. And since I’ve been changing the way I think, my heart has been in a better place. I’m happier. Putting off things and “just chilling” never really made me happy. In fact, I was being owned by this vicious cycle. It feels good to have my heart back.

The cool part is, I didn’t lose the fiery motivation I can get about things; I just don’t get it with a sense of guilt.

What motivates you? If it’s not what God has put in your heart, then something else owns you. But I want to encourage you that you can break the vicious cycle. You might try starting with Lessons from David. It’s a character study on a man who had one of the greatest hearts toward God and life. What worked for him will work for you!

The Record-Breaking Healing Is Here Conference

The 2018 Healing Is Here Conference was just awesome! It broke records with the highest number of first- and all-time attendees! The word is definitely out there: healing is here, it’s for today, and it’s ours right now!

Daniel Amstutz and Carlie Terradez―the dynamic duo―delved into intense periods of ministry training (AKA “marinating in the Word”). They taught on our rights and authority as believers and how our faith becomes effective as we acknowledge every good thing in us (Philem. 6). Their training was hands-on, and they encouraged us, as carriers of the King of glory, to minister to and pray for each other. You could feel their passion right off the bat as they declared their hatred for sickness and what it does to people.

Andrew followed up on this by stating that he had only been sick once in fifty years, which is pretty impressive! Not many have that kind of testimony. And this, he said, is because he will not tolerate sickness in his body―the same way he wouldn’t go out and commit adultery. He declared that “we must hate what God hates!”

Barry Bennett spoke about the culture and language of the kingdom. We have been translated from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of God’s dear son (Col. 1:13), and there’s no sickness in God’s kingdom. Hallelujah! Christ died to redeem us from every consequence of sin, including sickness. That revelation turned the light bulbs on in people’s hearts, and they were ready and determined to take back everything the devil had stolen from them.

Audrey Mack’s ministry and testimonies were powerful! As someone who overcame cancer—among other issues—Audrey knew what she was talking about. Her boldness was reflected in her message: “The violent take it
by force!”

And that’s not all!

We had the pleasure of welcoming Randy Clark to Healing Is Here for the first time! A key player in the Toronto Blessing, Randy Clark has been used mightily by God to set captives free all over the world. The room was packed and overflowing with expectant people, who were ready to see the supernatural and miraculous manifest before their eyes. And, of course, they were not disappointed.

The Thursday Healing School session was also packed, as the keynote speakers came together as a panel and answered questions from
the audience.

Practical, interactive workshops took place in between sessions, and many went on their first street ministry ever. Prayer ministry was also available after each session.

Over the course of four days, sickness and disease were exposed as the works of the Enemy. The devil was put to shame as many were saved, filled with the Holy Spirit, healed, and delivered. The power of the Holy Spirit was indeed present to heal, and testimonies abounded on site and from online viewers! We saw people coming out of wheelchairs―one person hadn’t walked in ten years! Others were healed of multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, paralysis, arthritis, severe pain, a lump in the breast, pinched nerves, COPD, digestive issues, emotional disturbance, deafness, cancer, carpal tunnel syndrome, a missing tooth, blindness, metal screws and bars in the body, and much more! There was a collection of wheelchairs, canes, and medical equipment no longer needed―a trophy of God’s healing power!

One lady had a healing journey, during which she received healing from a different condition each day of the conference: extreme pain from arthritis, T2 compressed fracture, cramps in feet and elsewhere, and cancerous neck tumors! Amazing!

If you missed one or all of these life-changing sessions or wish you could hear more of the conference testimonies, you can view videos from Healing Is Here 2018 on Charis Bible College’s YouTube channel. For your convenience, you can order copies of the CDs or DVDs or request prayer by calling our Helpline at 719-635-1111, Monday through Friday from 4:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. (MT).

You’ll find that the message is really almost too good to be true, and you won’t want to keep it to yourself.
