    Read   Keeping Your Joy - An Instructive Conversation With God

    Read   Pure in Heart At the end of June this year I finished teaching a class on the Beatitudes. It’s called “Attitudes of Being.” That class was particularly meaningful to me this time around because the Lord used it for some very noticeable heart changes in me. I just came across something I wrote for the pure in heart beatitude and felt prompted to share it with the wider website audience. So that short article has been placed on the website. This beatitude is a key focus point for my ministry, and those of you who are familiar with the ministry will see why. Those who aren’t I hope will nevertheless be touched and encouraged by what is shared in this article.

    Read   Garden Lessons This Newsletter is a simple followup to the August Newsletter.  If you did not read the August piece, it would provide context for this addition.   Both Newsletters are examples of ways in which the Lord speaks to us in the course of our day, in the midst of ordinary activities that become charged with life and awareness as He participates in them with us. 
August 20, 2007

    Read   Garden Lessons It's been a while since I have updated the site--a number of personal commitments, a class started out in Murrieta, a conference in July, and moving my residence at the end of July, have filled the horizon.  But something happened in the course of the move that I would like to share.  It involves the blessing of the new home and something I heard there as I was putting things in order.
February 12, 2007

    The Lord has been stirring my heart more and more with kingdom things--revival in the church and in the nation is part of that, and how it starts with each of us seeking to be revived!  Recently I felt prompted to look again at a book by Charles Finney, called Revival Lectures (1868).  He makes some very compelling observations about revival that I want to share.  Surrounding the preparation and gestation of that message my pastor showed a video from the Urbana Mission Conference 2006 of a talk given by Pastor Oscar Muriu, from Kenya.  It is a VERY POWERFUL message to the church worldwide, and I encourage you to listen to it.  It is the first link below.

    The second link is to the message I gave at One Accord 1-28-07, and the third link is to Finney's whole book.  It is available online and can be read, printed, shared, etc.

November 6, 2006

    Listen   One Accord, October 22, Retrieving and Commissioning This message is about the battle that surrounds the call on our lives and the danger of it getting buried. It focuses on several verses from Romans 8, and specifically the battle between the spirit of bondage to fear and the Spirit of adoption that draws us into our whole inheritance in the Lord (Rom. 8:15). God remembers the words and gifts He has placed in our hearts. He was speaking to a couple of people about stirring up, retrieving and declaring that call on their lives. Because I have since heard from several others who relate to retrieving and commissioning, or re-commissioning due to battles and losses, we are posting this message for those who need the Lord’s reminder. Runtime is approximately 20 minutes.
October 18, 2006

    Listen   Part II: Coming out of Hiding This message was given to a group of people who were either already praying with people for healing and deeper connection with the Lord, or who are called to that kind of ministry. It is not primarily about physical hiding, though our first parents were hiding in the garden physically as well. Rather it focuses on things hidden in our hearts, often the very things that bear most on our healing, and how surprising it is to people to discover them. Since searching our hearts and bringing light into the hidden areas is not part of our elementary, middle, high school, or college curriculum, most people are not aware of how to come out of hiding and what it looks like to open that door with the Lord. This is a message about the place hiding holds in healing and the difficulty people experience coming out. Runtime is approximately 44 minutes.

    Listen    Part I: “The Power and Significance of Refuge   Recorded October 1, 2006
    We have planned to post a teaching on “Hiding” and the place it holds in our healing process with the Lord—the things hidden in our heart that need to be brought for healing. We will still do that, but it will be Part II: “Coming out of Hiding,” A talk recently given on the topic of refuge will be Part I: “The Power and Significance of Refuge.” This talk focuses on the Lord being our refuge and how much we need refuge, both for healing and empowering. One of the central points in this talk is pouring out our heart to the Lord (Ps. 62:8)— and that is the point where it intersects with the Hiding teaching, as being able to pour out our heart is the key to coming out of hiding. I hope the context that the refuge talk gives will be helpful for people in relating more fully to the Hiding teaching. The audio runtime is about 32 minutes.

    Listen    Anger/Regard   Recorded May 29, 2004    This teaching shares an insight Suzan had while processing some points of anger in her own life. It leads to the larger perspective the Lord gave her as a result of working through those points with Him. It also touches on the benefit of talking to the Lord about our anger before we attempt to discuss it with each other. The audio cassette was recently digitized for the Internet. The audio runtime is about 73 minutes.

    Listen    From One Passion to One Spirit - Phil. 2:2 (NKJ)   Recorded at One Accord, August 27, 2006    This last "one accord" Scripture holds a different meaning.  All of the instances of "one accord" in Acts have the meaning of being at the same place, with the same passion.  The word in Phil. 2 means more nearly one in Spirit and also carries the meaning of how we get there.  Suzan talks about the progression of one accord through Acts and the encouraging nature of where that growth led the early church, and where it can still lead us now. The audio runtime is about 28 minutes.
      Read   Updated Brochure and Schedule:    One Accord, Segment Two One Accord will not be meeting on September 24th. Tentatively, the next One Accord meeting will either be October 22nd or the 29th.  Please check back for updated meeting dates. The meetings will still be held at Emmanuel Christian Fellowship, 35505 Iodine Springs Rd., Wildomar, CA 92595. Click "Read" for details, everyone is welcome to attend.

    Listen   One Accord, August 13, 2006 Opening Statement & Prayer   This meeting of One Accord begins with Michael Brown sharing a personal statement about his process in recent weeks, and the challenge of keeping our focus on the Lord when we are inundated with demands and facing impossible expectations. The audio runtime is about 12 minutes.
      Listen   The Role of God in Restoring One Accord - Acts 15 (NKJ)   Suzan shares how the one accord the church had enjoyed was severely challenged in Acts 15.   She focuses on the means by which it was restored then, and the implications that has for our own resolution and return to one accord now. The audio runtime is about 39 minutes.

    Read:  July 2006 Newsletter "Breath of Heaven Children's Ministries"    I want to share a praise in progress with you, something I am very proud of my church for undertaking. We are a small church and cannot pull this off ourselves, but we have launched into building a Children’s Village in Zambia, Africa, believing it to be the prompting of the Lord and something He will make a way to complete. We have the property, a well has been dug, and work on the first village house (of 12) has begun. Please take a few moments to read the newsletter and watch the video. It is less than 10 minutes long and may change your heart.

    Listen   One Accord, June 11, 2006 Opening Prayer   Michael Brown opens our One Accord session sharing a vision he had during worship and praying for us in response to that vision.  The audio runtime is about 8 minutes.
      Listen   The Progression of One Accord in the book of Acts   The meeting on June 11 launched a mini-series (3-4 meetings) on “The Progression of One Accord in the book of Acts.” During the break in meetings, Suzan was prompted to look at all of the “one accord” Scriptures in Acts, other than Acts 2:1, which was the Scripture that our One Accord name was taken from a year ago. She saw that it is a term often used to describe the heart attitude of the church in Acts, and that there is a progression to the levels of one accord to which the church came—through the same kinds of obstacles that we face on our way to one accord with the Lord. Where are we in that progression, what do the challenges look like, and what are the victories based upon? These are the focus points for the series. The audio runtime is about 39 minutes.
      Read:  Handout "A Series on One Accord Scriptures"    Because we do not all use the same translation, a handout was given with the NKJ rendering, which uses the term “one accord”, and it includes some of the definitions we are looking at as well.

    Read   Seasons of Anger,  a poem by Melissa Henry completed May 21, 2006. Melissa continues to be involved in the ministry as one of our prayer partners and recently shared the completing of this poem which she began in 1997.  It is a powerful statement that we wanted to share with you.
April 27, 2006
    Listen   One Accord, April 9, 2006 Opening Prayer   Our recording begins as Suzan Jerome is already praying and Michael Brown finishes our opeing prayer for this evening's session. The audio runtime is about 8 minutes.
      Listen   What do You want to do, Lord?    This meeting is about what Suzan heard in response to that question. It focuses on the washing of our conscience, looking first at what conscience means in Scripture. It ends with a look at the place of prophecy in the life of a believer. You may wonder how those two relate. You will have to listen to the progression to get it! The audio runtime is about 35 minutes.
      Listen   "Sharing by Steve Sharman/Comments and Closing by Michael Brown"    Steve is a regular attendee of One Accord, is gifted prophetically, and has a heart for receiving all of what the Lord has for him. Michael felt prompted to ask Steve to share his heart, and there is a neat statement about the working of the Lord that came out of that. The audio runtime is about 13 minutes.

      Listen   Michael Brown's Opening Prayer    Although the recording has some static we hope the prayer helps illuminate this evening's message. The audio runtime is about 4 minutes.
      Listen   "Receive into Your Heart" (Ezekiel 3:10)   Suzan focuses on the Ezekiel 3 Scripture in which the Lord says to receive into our hearts all the words He speaks to us. She also looks at Matthew 13:19 in terms of what can happen to the words the Lord sends instead of receiving them into our hearts. The audio runtime is about 25 minutes.
      Listen   Closing Discussion and Prayer    Michael focuses on receiving, keeping, and hearing through the prophetic words we receive from others. The whole evening is about the word of the Lord getting all the way in and accomplishing all He intends in sending it. The audio runtime is about 31 minutes.

    Listen   One Accord, February 26, 2006 "Opening Prayer"   This evening's introduction and opening prayer led to an amazing time with the Lord and specific prayer for Pastor Ted Lawler of Emmanuel Christian Fellowship, Wildomar, California. The audio runtime is about 22 minutes.
      Listen   "“Fellowship with the Lord is the Chief Thing”"    The message focuses on the kind of abiding fellowship with the Lord that empowers us and attends all the other things we “do” with Him. Suzan talks about why fellowship is the chief thing and speaks to the reality that there are many in the body of Christ who do not experience that deep fellowship with God. She pins down the heart level where it gets blocked and relates those difficulties to the first beatitude—poor in spirit—and why it is the first beatitude. She ends with a word from the Lord about how dear to His heart this fellowship is, followed by a quiet time with Him to let Him minister to us. It was quite an evening!  (Read the attached handouts listed below.)  The audio runtime is about 41 minutes.
      Listen   "Discussion"    The discussion and prayer time is a continuation of the session above. The audio runtime is about 6 minutes.

      Listen   "Developmental Growth"    Suzan talked about a necessary turning point for individuals and the church which moves us into the spiritual reality described in Galatians 2:20 " is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me..."  She shared how that movement is proceeding in her life, and closed with a vision the Lord gave her which speaks to the purpose for One Accord, but also led to the identification of several specific hindrances for Suzan personally. (Read the attached Inlet Vision handout below.)  The audio runtime is about 46 minutes.
      Listen   "Discussion"    The discussion and prayer time is a continuation of the session above. The audio runtime is about 31 minutes.
      Read:  Handout "Inlet Vision"    Recently Suzan was praying about where she was with the Lord and the things He is lighting up these days, and also where One Accord is in restarting, and what He wants to do there. As she was praying she had a vision that speaks to these questions, personally and more globally. Suzan shares this vision in the handout.
February 15, 2006

    Read   Chapter Five to A Prepared Heart, "When You Search for Me with all Your Heart"   This is the last chapter of PART I: Separation and its Aftermath.  What Suzan regards as the primary and most difficult obstacle in the way of restoring close connection with the Lord is discussed.  She looks at what the Scripture exhorts us to do with our emotions, and observes that our efforts to ignore or bury them produce neither connection nor preventing our feelings from running our lives.  Therefore, the important alternative of reconciling emotions is the focus of this chapter.   
January 15, 2006
    Read   New Preface to A Prepared Heart   I have not been content with the brief Preface that was initially posted. I have not felt that it provided enough perspective, identification of the purpose for the book, or clarity about why the book is called A Prepared Heart. As these things have become sharper for me, I have written a more complete Preface. If this is the first time you have looked at A Prepared Heart, it will bring a better focus for the chapters that follow the Preface. If you have already read the first four chapters, I hope this new Preface will enhance the way those pieces fit together in your understanding.

December 8, 2005

    Read   Anger/Regard  This brief article shares an experience Suzan had with the Lord in processing some points of anger in her own life, and the larger perspective He gave her as a result of that interaction.  It describes the benefit of asking the Lord about our anger before we attempt to discuss it with each other.    
November 29, 2005
    Listen   One Accord, November 20, 2005 "Vision and Opening Prayer"   Michael Brown started the meeting with a vision he had during worship, relating to the Lord setting His banner in our hearts and then opens the meeting with prayer.  The audio runtime is about 11 minutes.
      Listen   "Hearing All the Way Through"    Suzan talked about how important it is when the Lord is pouring out to hear all the way through the things He sends. She shared from Judges and Acts, looking at the need to keep listening and responding until the whole outcome is accomplished. She talked about Gideon’s hearing of the Lord in Judges as what our initial efforts might look like, and about Peter’s more mature hearing of the Lord in Acts 10. The audio runtime is about 45 minutes.
      Listen   "Discussion"    Discussion and prayer regarding the message shared by Suzan. The audio runtime is about 28 minutes.
      Read:  Handout "Hearing All the Way Through"    The handout summarizes the progression for both levels of hearing, and two exercises for those who want to spend some time with the Lord applying the teaching personally.
November 15, 2005
    Listen   One Accord, November 6, 2005 "Who Does What?"   The entire meeting was about bringing clarity to this question: What is God’s part and what is ours? Suzan shared several ways in which the Lord was brightening that up for her, focusing on Ezekiel 37: 1-14, and the partnership with the Lord that turned dry bones into an “exceedingly great army.” The audio runtime is about 36 minutes.
      Listen   "Discussion"    Michael Brown went through Psalm 68, where the designations of what God does and what we do are particularly sharp. He also reflected on staying in only what the Lord says, not adding to it from our own experience or frustration. He used Moses’ experience with God in doing more than He said and forfeiting his entry to the Promised Land (Numbers 20:7-12). The audio runtime is about 38 minutes.
November 8, 2005

    Read: A Prepared Heart, Chapter Four "Therapeutic Approach of Scripture for our Heart Condition"    A Prepared Heart is a book in progress by Suzan Jerome. Here is an excerpt from the first paragraphs of Chapter Four:  

      "Increasingly, the church seems to be turning over healing issues to psychology. There are a number of reasons for this trend. Psychology has developed clear therapeutic approaches for developmental deficits and wounding in life. These approaches can be studied, mastered and applied with certain results.

      Another key element is that much of our healing calls for more than 3 to 6 meetings, and most pastors do not feel they have the time to invest in long-term counseling, which is largely true. Therefore referring to someone who is set up for more extensive time commitments seems to be an advantage.

      The drawback to this understandable logic in referring people who are seeking healing in their lives is that most secular therapies are carried out without the Lord’s active involvement."

    Listen   One Accord, October 23 "Clarity"    The meeting opens and closes with Michael sharing how the Lord was working in him in the course of the meeting. His witness powerfully identifies our personal challenges in hearing through to agreement with the Lord over the things He invites us into with Him. The audio runtime is about 13 minutes.
      Listen   "A Dream that Calls for Prayer"    Suzan’s message describes how a dream she had following the last meeting continues the flow of the Holy Spirit in One Accord meetings. In the last meeting Michael’s vision of running with abandon toward the Lord was the focus, and it ended with Judy’s exhortation to “start running.” The dream calls us to “start running” in prayer over the silent invasion going on across our land, in which people who once knew about the weapons of God are joining a seeming “celebration” designed to separate them from Him. As we minister to the Lord in the larger work of restoration, He will clarify and direct individual calling (Acts 13:2). The audio runtime is about 55 minutes.
      Listen   Prayer and Worship   The prayer has two points of focus: 1) Our primary motivation needs to be sharing the Lord’s heart of compassion for His people; 2) The degree of hardness calls for the power and presence of God to encounter His children directly and turn things around. Both Michael and Suzan were saved by such an encounter with the Lord, and their testimonies are shared. That is the kind of outpouring we need as a nation, so we must ask for it. The audio runtime is about 44 minutes.
October 26, 2005

    Read: A Prepared Heart, Chapter Three "Heart of Man"    A Prepared Heart is a book in progress by Suzan Jerome. Here is an excerpt from Chapter Three, first paragraph:  

      "The Scripture says that fullness of life depends on the condition of our heart, and especially the condition of our heart in relationship to God. So we must keep our heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life (Prov. 4:23). This is not because our heart and its faculties are sufficient. In fact, to count on the faculties of our own heart is defined as foolishness in Scripture. We keep our heart in a position of connection with and trusting in God."

    Listen   One Accord, October 9 "Running With Abandon"    This message is a continuation of a word brought by Michael Brown at the church service in the morning. Though it relates to things going on in a move of God at our church, it is a message pertinent to every believer, especially those wanting more of God. The word and vision that Michael brought, and the comments from those present have a very igniting effect on our pursuit of God! The audio runtime is about 42 minutes.
    Read   Courage to Heal: A Personal Testimony    Someone who went through the process of healing described on the website said she wanted to share her experience. Before she came she had no idea what it would be like and felt that there were many others out there who didn’t either. She felt they might benefit from and be encouraged by an actual description of someone’s healing, and perhaps be strengthened to pursue their own. We appreciate her putting this together and letting us share it on the website.

    Listen   One Accord, September 25 "The Hand of God Clearing Debris from our Lives"    Pursuing HOW obstacles are removed, Suzan identifies certain conclusions that result from patterns in our life experience; what it can look like when the Lord begins to light them up; the nature of our struggle in making the exchanges He offers; and some beginning elements of our role with each other in the work of liberating our hearts with the Lord. Her message is followed by questions and discussion from the group. The audio runtime is about 60 minutes.

    Listen   One Accord, July 31 "An Appointment with God"   Connecting Prayer is discussed as the pivotal point in healing of heart, and equipping that leads to release of our spirit--we have to have enough connection with the Lord to let Him do the rest.  The discussion of connecting prayer centers on a word from the Lord to the group, and on several Scriptures that announce His intent to meet with and speak with us regularly.  Here is a portion of the word:  

    I am making an appointment with those who are there.  The time is to speak with them about the things that are stirring on their heart and for them to know what is on My heart toward them.   

    The audio runtime is about 34 minutes.

    Read: A Prepared Heart, Chapter Two "Spirit of Man"    A Prepared Heart is a book in progress by Suzan Jerome. Here is an excerpt from Chapter Two:   We have discussed how important the condition of our heart is to life, especially life in the Lord. Now we must look at the relationship between heart (soul) and spirit. The purpose for healing and cleansing our hearts is not so our heart will exercise a healthier form of control. Rather, that restoring our heart is a pivotal work on the way to releasing our spirit to be in union with the Spirit of God. Indeed, Scripture seems to indicate that our whole heart needs to join with our spirit and be able to believe and respond to God freely, if we are to know true recovery.

July 13, 2005

    Listen   One Accord, July 3 "Who is Responsible?"   The message is about the fourth element of the fall, as reported in Genesis 3--that which focuses on the scramble of responsibility lines resulting from the fall, and what that scramble looks like in our life now.  It also contains some very compelling sharing by Michael Brown on what contributes to our getting dislodged from the Lord, and what returning looks like. The audio runtime is about 86 minutes.

    Read   Getting Connected   What is Preventing Connection? Too many people in the body of Christ do not experience hearing from the King. They don’t know how to meet with Him, are in fact believing that He does not want to meet with them, though they have done everything they know how to do to get it to happen. What is going on?
    Listen   December 2004 Message, Our Need for Compassion  This message is about something the Lord showed me recently about the nature of ministry.

    Listen   October 2004 Message, Ministry by Gifting and Partnership, Part One    It is a followup message to the previous month's message about the authority of God and the hope that there is in that. The authority of God in the restoration process is so that what He says starts to overrule all the other contrary influences in our lives and starts to bring us back into wholeness with Him. But, our goal is not simply healing, it is unity, empowering and activity with Him. The focus of this message is, therefore, Ministry by Gifting and Partnership with Him. Runs about 21 minutes.
