God's Word Can't Fail
One of the wonderful truths in the Bible is that God used words to bring the universe into existence. Words! How amazing! God could have created the universe any way He wanted to, but He chose to speak creation into being. And when He spoke, the Bible says, "there was" (see Genesis chapter 1).
When our Heavenly Father says something, it happens! At creation, He spoke irresistible words that could not be denied or opposed, and what He declared came to be. The Word has undeniable, incontestable power! And it can create, effect change, or solve any problem in our lives.
In these last days it's more important than ever for us to fine-tune our spiritual ears to hear the Lord's voice. God is constantly speaking to us. He's trying to warn us of things to come. So many times we simply shrug it off. We think, "That's just me." But it's not. It's the Holy Spirit's voice.

Certain events throughout history have so impacted our lives that they will be forever engraved on our memories. December 7, 1941, the day on which Pearl Harbor was attacked, is "a date which will live in infamy," as President Franklin D. Roosevelt so aptly said. I was 2 years old when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. I don't remember the attack, but I do remember my parents and grandparents being upset.

"My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
The Word of God is like medicine to our bodies. We need to learn how to take God's medicine so it can do its healing work.
More than 50,000 people converged on the Rhema campus and the surrounding area to enjoy the fireworks.
Rockets Over Rhema blasted into the night sky on Sunday, July 1, to the oohs and aahs of over 50,000 people. But this event was about more than brilliant fireworks. Everything—from the free concert, car show, and inflatable games to the amazing concessions—showed people that Rhema cares.

Eleven years have passed since the United States fell victim to a terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. As with most national tragedies or triumphs, many people can remember exactly where they were when they first heard the news. I was in my bedroom packing my suitcase for a ministry trip to Florida, a trip that ended up being canceled.
TIMELESS TEACHINGS OF KENNETH E. HAGIN
"But he [Stephen], being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God." —Acts 7:55
Notice that when Stephen looked up to Heaven, he saw the glory of God. Have you ever seen God's glory? I've seen it on more than one occasion. Scripture has much to say about God's glory and uses words like cloud, brightness, smoke, white, bright, shone, and glistening to describe it. Let's look at some verses, beginning in the Old Testament.
Never the Same
Attendees of Amplify 2012 will never be the same . . . because this year's conference led them into deeper levels of worship than they'd ever been before. Whether they were a techie or part of the worship team, their relationship with the Lord was amplified and they left ready to change their world! Here are some short snippets from this year's speakers.
Gratitude. It stirred Albanian pastors and their wives to ride for hours scrunched into a minivan with their feet on their luggage to attend the first graduation at Rhema Greece.

SPECIAL REPORT: INTERNATIONAL RHEMA
"Taking the School to the People"
Africa has been on Vidar and Cathrine Ligard's hearts since their childhood and youth. From an early age, these 2002 Rhema USA graduates knew that one day they would do missions work on this vast continent filled with majestic mountain peaks, breathtaking waterfalls, and a beautiful array of wild animals. When an opportunity to travel to Mombasa, Kenya, opened up in the summer of 1999 after his first year at Rhema, Vidar jumped at the opportunity.
Do you want to be successful in life? You may be thinking, "Lynette, that is a dumb question. Of course we all want to be successful." However, I want to raise another question: are you following the Bible's principles for attaining success?
A Call to Arms Speaker Highlight
"When You said, 'Seek My face,' My heart said to You, 'Your face, Lord, I will seek.' "
—Psalm 27:8 (NKJV)
I believe God is going to give us a hunger to go after Him as never before. When I say this, most people look at me and say, "I've been in the church for 20 years" or "I've been saved for this long." That doesn't matter. There's another dimension—another realm—with God. And if we'll go after Him, we'll find Him in a way that we've never found Him before.
