From Glory To Glory & The Ladies Of Gold

Throughout church history, there have been individuals and groups who serve as signposts along the way, displaying to us what is possible and available to us in Christ. One of the most profound displays of both the possibilities and the process was a group of intercessors called the Golden Candlestick. In the 1920’s, this group of intercessors began meeting together to worship and to pray. Though many of them had been trained for ministry in Aimee Semple McPherson’s Bible school, the Lord asked them to lay down their aspirations for public ministry and to minister to Him in the secret place.

External things alone cannot compensate for internal sabotage, but they can help to reveal and dislodge it. They can create outward momentum, displacing inertia by simply helping you to begin moving in the right direction.
