Evangelist Photini

Check this out!! Let it stir you to the core!! 🔥🔥

 

Photini

 
The whole world needs to know her story. Photini is the name of The Woman at the Well in John 4.
 
A significant figure in the Johannine community, the Samaritan Woman, like many other women, contributed to the spread of Christianity. She therefore occupies a place of honour among the apostles. In Greek sermons from the fourth to the fourteenth centuries she is called "apostle" and "evangelist." In these sermons the Samaritan Woman is often compared to the male disciples and apostles and found to surpass them.
 
At Pentecost Saint Photini received baptism, along with her five sisters, Anatole, Photo, Photis, Paraskeve, Kyriake, and her two sons, Photeinos and Joseph. She then began a missionary career, traveling far and wide, preaching the good news of the Messiah's coming, His death and resurrection. When Nero, the emperor of Rome, began to persecute Christians, Photini and her son Joseph were...

Crucial Conversations Prt 1

Part of alignment and bringing greater order in life and fueling wellbeing has to do with confrontation and healthy conversations......

Most people try to avoid confrontation...

or they always seem to be confrontational and don't know how to have a healthy conversation.

The HOW we do something matters.....

 

What does it mean to “Have a Crucial Conversation”?

 

1. Identifying the precise situation that's causing you tension, and understanding what's happening.

Before we can talk about how to change a situation, we need to know why the situation is there.

2. Being clear on your needs.

What, ultimately, do you want to happen? (Notice that this isn't about what you don't want.)

3. Preparing or improving your communication skills.

Asking for exactly what you need and want will mean being assertive. It means:

  • expressing your feelings, thoughts, and desires clearly and unambiguously — with compassion, thoughtfulness, and honesty;
  • managing your emotions so that...

Alignment Before Assignment

 

 

I wanted to share with you a snap shot of prophetic encouragement to help cross train your spirit, mind, faith, and life.....

Take a few minutes to read it and strengthen yourself in the Lord...

Let me preface this with the fact that there is much that could be shared prophetically and much that has been shared in our Sunday gatherings, our local prayer expression (Prayer furnace), and more…

So the following is some curation of what we sense the Spirit pdf God has been saying to us. I believe most of it is applicable to all of us in this season:


Training & Learning Warfare

We must understand that God allows opposition and “enemy’s” in the land  to test and refine His people to see whether or not we will keep the way of the Lord and walk in it.  He (God) also strategically leaves "enemies" to teach us and  train us in spiritual warfare; We need battle experience to become seasoned spiritual warriors  in this age...

Do Challenging things Prt 2

 

 A new way to get to the Top

When your in pursuit of a goal or dream many have said, "it's lonely at the top"......But I don't believe that to be true if you live and build your life and business the right way!

"It's not good for man to be alone" the good Lord said...and this was not in reference only to marriage...but in all things.

So many people are caught in a "dog eat dog world" where people are ruthless in seeking their own ambitions to climb their ladder of success.  

This is a broken system that needs to be forsaken.

There is a better way!

Brotherly/ friendly competition is good and how we all can challenge each other to perform and live at the top of our "game", but how we really win and therefore all win is through collaboration and in serving each other.

We find a fullness in life when we are giving our lives away in service to others and to a cause that is greater than ourselves.  To be self serving alone is destructive, isolating, and does lead to being...

Do challenging things! Prt 1

 

All growth is an uphill journey! You must be intentional and you must stay "hungry"

When we have certain successes or have reached a certain level of growth or achievement or made any measure of progress, it's easy to settle down and become content and camp out around how far we've come and fail to see that there is more to go!

Yes, we need to celebrate every win and learn to enjoy the journey, but in the same breadth we need to set our eyes to the higher places and Keep Climbing!

Yes, take a breath, look back, and enjoy how far you have come but do not stay there...

In life, relationships, personal growth, business, ministry...etc mediocrity and comfortability is the enemy to your potential, growth, and ultimate joy.

We have to hold to the things that got us to where we are if were to keep growing.

Keep embracing your challenge where you are!

Redeemed Reason

Listen, I wanted to drop you a note on redeemed reason...

I think it's important to understand that human reason or the rational mind that's un-submitted to the spirit is antagonistic and at enmity to the spirit.  So we need to learn to think and reason with a spiritual mind.

The wisdom of God and the ways of God are often  contrary to regular human logic and even considered foolish, and so spiritual things (and all things are spiritual when it comes to how we relate to them) must be discerned by the spirit.

We have to learn to live and operate and see things from a supernatural perspective; the mind of Christ is meant to be the genius and intelligence with operate and live from. Otherwise we may find ourselves fighting against  or resisting the will and plan of God to our own hurt.  This is so critical in this hour and it's critical to growing in maturity!

We have to understand that faith is the confidence of what we hope for and the evidence or assurance...
