Eric Johnson on Defeating Anxiety

Eric Johnson on Defeating Anxiety
In the fall of 2020, Eric and Candace Johnson felt a shift regarding their future. They were, at the time, Senior Pastors of Bethel Church in Redding, CA, having served in that role for almost 10 years. In following their heart, they stepped down from this position and stepped into a space where they didn’t know where they were going, but knew it was what they were supposed to do.As they were transitioning, Eric felt a pull towards the Carolinas, which is funny because they both had never been there. So in January of 2021, they rented a car and spent 8 days driving through both North and South Carolina. They wanted to see some different areas but mostly, they just drove around for 8 days with the goal of seeing if a particular area or city was highlighted to them. They thoroughly enjoyed their time in the Carolinas and its beauty, people, history, and culture. But there was something about Greenville, South Carolina that stood out to them.When they got back to Redding, CA, they spent a lot of time praying, talking, and processing with their daughters, family, and friends about where they were sensing they would go next.In March, 2021 they went back to Greenville to continue down the road to see if this was what they were to do next. Their prayer going back was “God, may this visit be a clear 'no' or a 'yes'”. When they drove into the city and began to walk around downtown, something happened in their hearts for Greenville.So, they began to make contact with different leaders, pastors, and people who live in the Greenville area to get to know the city more and process what they felt God was leading them to. Their heart was to find out what God is doing there and partner with that as well as to explore what they can contribute to the bigger story of Greenville.On April 4th—Easter Sunday—after praying and processing with their daughters and some close friends, they felt a release to make a commitment to start a church in Greenville, South CarolinaSupport the show
Elijah Stephens On The Evidence for Miracles In His Documentary Send Proof

Elijah Stephens On The Evidence for Miracles In His Documentary Send Proof
Elijah Stephens always wrestled with the topic of miracles. He grew up in a Christian home, and was taught to believe in God at a young age. However, he was abused by his mom, who was also his Bible school teacher. The abuse would result in C-PTSD, and lingering questions about the nature of God. When Elijah was a teenager, he saw his mom conned by faith healers, and rejected modern miracles as ruses to make money. In 1999, he went to a Christian college, and began experiencing doubts while studying philosophy. He reasoned that seeing miracles with his own eyes would erase his doubts, and having seen what he thought were miracles, he became an associate pastor in the Vineyard Movement from 2005-2011.    After having served in that movement, he went to school at Bethel. Upon leaving the church, his former senior pastor, leaves the faith. He said there was no God, and that the miracles Elijah saw were illusions. This sent Elijah on a journey to look for miracle evidence. If miracles occur, they should leave behind evidence.  During his time at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, he was inspired to make a film about miracles with medical evidence. His hope was to encourage people to start sending miracles for research purposes. He put up a website, and it went nowhere. He received a few testimonies that were unverifiable. So he decided to look into going back into ministry instead, and was receiving job offers. In February of 2015, Elijah was at his house, when his friends started texting him that a traveling preacher named Shawn Bolz had called his name out at church. Therefore, he drove to the church, and was told by the pastor a “prophet word.” In the word, Elijah is told his name, birthday, that he lived in Chattanooga, and grew up in Georgia, as well as his wife’s name. The speaker then tells Elijah, “God is commissioning you. Go make the film”. In The winter of 2015, Elijah was able to raise $130,000 on Kickstarter for Send Proof. Send Proof was his first documentary. While working on the film Elijah began pursuing two masters degrees: Apologetics; and Science and Religion, which he finished both in Dec. 2019. The goal was to research the most difficult questions about healing miracles. -----Why is the film called Send Proof?             One of the biggest hindrances to researching miracle claims in the evangelical movement is that Christians often don’t value the need for evidence. The purpose of Send Proof is to change their perspective by calling on those who claim to be healed and ministries that report those healings to allow the Global Medical Research Institute (GMRI) to investigate their claims. We believe the burden of proof falls on those making the claim.  Thus, we want people to Send Proof of healing miracles. Why is Send Proof such a controversial movie?             It is the first documentary of its kind that shows miracle claims that have been researched and published in peer-reviewed journals. If miracles do occur, it challenges the prevailing naturalistic understanding of reality throughout the West. Modern miracles can point to the possibility of the existence of God, the resurrection of Jesus, and divine intervention in creation.  How can we see it? It will have a limited theatrical release, be shown in churches, and video on demand starting Sept 14th.

The truth is far too many of us visit the land of God’s blessing but never live there.We spend much of our lives feeling like we are on the outside of His blessing looking in, but never knowing a sustained experience of God’s best. The reason for our sporadic acquaintance with the fullness of God’s goodness is that we are not willing to wage the battle necessary to inhabit that new normal. This book explores the pathway into the Promise Land that Joshua and the people of Israel trekked and provides spiritual principles for fighting the spiritual battles that unlock a life of walking in God’s best. In New Normal, John Lindell invites you to join him on a life-changing journey following Joshua and the nation of Israel as they find out what it takes to live in the land of blessing God has prepared for them.
