Greetings in Jesus' name. Welcome to the 144th edition of
Journal of Aggressive Christianity. JAC144 is the High
And it is different from previous JAC High Council content. In
that past, we've offered up a whole bunch of articles on High
Council, including 'Why Council' (Andrew Bale), 'A High
Council Challenge' (Joe Noland), 'High Council' (Wesley
Harris), 'The High Council: Who Will Be Nominated', 'What Does
The World Think of High Council Delegates', 'High Council
Revolution: The Pope and The General', 'High Council Revival',
'High Council Myth Busters' (read all of these, here: JAC
'High Council Issues' (here: JAC Issue 070
as well as the JAC ebook 'General Counsel' (Joe Noland and
your JAC editor) (here: JAC Issue 114
'The Supremacy Of Christ' (Eva Burrows) (not completely on the
High Council but an inside story, here: JAC Issue 059
right back to the very first issue of JAC (JAC1!) in the last
century, 'A Manifesto of Aggressive Christianity' by John
Norton (not completely on High Council but with commentary,
here: JAC Issue 001
We invite you to dig back into that archive of High Council
But in JAC144, we're leaning in to prayer. The Salvation Army
Spiritual Life Development group made a call for prayer for
High Council delegates (and is resourcing that call, here: The
Salvation Army Spiritual Life Development – Posts | Facebook
The High Council is scheduled to meet during the current life
of JAC144 (May 2023). And we've gathered intercessory
direction from salvationists around the world.
JAC144 kicks off with General Paul Rader offering some
parameters and then a prayer in A God-born Army.
Soldier Jeni Lipsett in British Columbia, Canada and Bermuda,
offers a prophetic word and a devotional exercise in Awaken.
Soldier James McArthur in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and
Bermuda, leads us in a heart-felt prayer called Wisdom.
Captain Nana Fatouma Togo, Regional Secretary for Women's
Ministries/Mali Region, offers a nearly comprehensive exercise
for us in A Prayer for the High Council.
Captain Jessica Welch-Tursi, Corps Officer in north of Italy
and Youth coordinator for the Italy and Greece Territory,
shares a prophetic appeal to God for us in Return To Me.
Major Rob Reardon, Director of Mission & Ministry, at USW's
Training College, has been leading General Prayer for years
(see the article for a link to join), and leads our prayer
here in Praying At Noon.
And that's JAC144.
If you read, share, and pray, God only knows the
potential eternal impact of this issue!
God bless The Salvation Army.
