One More Night With The Frogs
In the book of Exodus, Egypt was plagued by frogs. When Moses told Pharaoh he
had the honour of setting the time when the plague ended, he said “tomorrow”.
Why didn’t he say “today?” Why did he live one more night with the frogs? In this
powerful message, we look at why you don’t need to live one more night with the
things tormenting you! You can receive breakthrough today!
It’s Not Over ‘Till The Barren Woman Sings
God’s plan for His Church is that we bear much fruit. But sometimes in our lives
and churches we can go through times of barrenness. In the Bible there were seven
barren woman who God made fruitful. Looking at each of these women, we look at
how God turns our barrenness into fruitfulness.
This powerful message will help us to have a fresh revelation of the Jesus who is
crucified, resurrected and glorified. We have had amazing testimonies of people who
have played this message to unsaved loved ones and saw them come to Christ. A
great evangelistic tool as well as a faith booster for all.
God’s timing can often seem mysterious. Sometimes it appears as though He is too
late. Sometimes it can appear He is too early. But Jesus always comes on time. Be
encouraged to know that all our times, years and seasons are in His hands.
THE UPPER ROOM
In the Bible, incredible supernatural things took place in upper rooms. It was in
an upper room that the dead were raised. It was an upper room that Jesus had
communion with his disciples. It was in an upper room that one of God’s enemies
was killed. It was in an upper room that the Holy Spirit was poured out. This message
asks the question: do you have an upper room in your life?
HE GOES BEFORE YOU
The book of Exodus tells us that God went ahead of His people in a cloud by day and
a pillar of fire by night. Throughout the scriptures God is always pictured as going
ahead of those who belong to Him. Be encouraged today, that wherever you are
going, He has already been there. If you are about to enter into a new season, then
this message is for you!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this magazine
and for your interest in this ministry. Your support and prayers
mean the world to us. The name Generation Builders is taken
from two scriptures. In 1 Corinthians 3, Paul writes: “Each one
should build with care. For no one can lay any foundation other
than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.” In Psalm 24, the
Psalmist declares: “Such is the generation of those who seek Him,
who seek your face, God of Jacob” These two scriptures sum up
the heart of this ministry. Firstly, we are unashamedly a Christ
centered ministry. Our hearts burn with a passion for Him and we
desire to proclaim the wonderful message of His gospel wherever
the Father sends us. Secondly, it was an encounter with the Holy
Spirit that changed our lives, and so we desire to stir the Church
back to a place where it really seeks God’s face and encounters His
glorious manifest presence.
With every breath we seek to see the lost saved, the broken
restored, the captives set free, the sick healed and the hungry and
As we travel the world preaching the gospel of Christ, we would
love it if you would support us in prayer. Please read in the pages
of this magazine the wonderful things that God has been doing.
We would love to hear from you if you have a testimony, prayer
request or would like us to minister at your church.

Our passion is to see God move throughout the UK and as we have travelled around the country this year we have preached a
Christ centered message and seen God demonstrate His awesome power!
We have seen many people respond to salvation; lots of people healed and set free; people impacted by words of prophecy;
hundreds encountering the Holy Spirit. We give God all the glory for the doors He has opened and for all He has done this year.
One of the highlights of the year was taking two sessions in the Holy Spirit Stream
at One Event, Lincoln. On the first day Andrew spoke on “The Holy Spirit and The
Believers Authority” which was well received. The second day we had a double, two
and half hour session and the venue was packed with hundreds of hungry people
gathering together. As Andrew spoke on “The Fire Of God”, God’s Spirit swept
through the place with many being touched and being overwhelmed by the power
of God and some testifying of healing.
Earlier in the year we had seen God move mightily in two youth events; one
in Boreham Wood, the other “Arise” in Northampton. In both events, we met
teenagers hungry for God’s presence. The event in Boreham Wood was memorable
as it was held in a public library. During the ministry time as Andrew prayed for people, visitors to the library stared through the
glass doors, curious as to what was going on. Praise God, some of these teenagers ended up walking into the venue and meeting
Jesus for themselves!
We always enjoy our visits to Norfolk to minister with our friends Paul Randerson in Kings Lynn and Matt Richards in Norwich.
When Andrew had visited this area in 2014 he had ministered to a lady in a wheelchair who had had fibromyalgia for twenty
years. As he had prayed, the women had felt God’s power come upon her and she had walked around the building. Over a year
later, it was great to hear that this woman had handed in her disability badge and was even well enough to go horse riding!
Totally healed by the power of God! Our visit to Kings Lynn this year was memorable, as we had the joy of leading a Jewish lady
to Christ. In tears she accepted and received Jesus as her Messiah.
At a church in Northampton, Andrew was prompted to call out of the congregation
a young man and prophesy over him that the call of God was upon his life and not
to give up on following Jesus. The young man broke down in tears and afterwards
shared a powerful testimony. He explained how he had been so discouraged that he
was on the verge of giving up on God. In fact, he had told God on his way to church
that night that unless God spoke directly to him in the service he would never set
foot in a church building again! Well, God did speak to him and he was radically
changed by the power of God!
There are so many more stories we would love to share but we don’t have space
in this magazine. Of course, the vast majority of what happens in peoples lives we
never hear about. But we are convinced God is doing great things around the UK.
Please continue to pray for all our ministry around the country and please visit the

THE LAME WALK.
THE LOST ARE SAVED.
GOD’S FIRE FALLS.
Argentina 2015 Report by Andrew Murray
for the second
Our first weekend
Agape to the Nations, a church that is experiencing phenomenal
growth led by Pastor Carlos Sanchez.
On the Friday night there were a few hundred people present and I
ministered on “The Wave Of God’s Goodness”. We had a great start
with many first time decisions for Christ, deliverance and people
weeping as they received prophetic words.
I must have prayed for hundreds of people and went away very
encouraged by all God did.
On the Saturday afternoon I taught on evangelism to a small group
of around fifty or sixty people. All of them responded to the altar call
wanting to be used by God as soul winners. Paul Bendele (Missionary
Ventures) shared on his heart for mission, and ten people came up at
the end wanting to be used as missionaries in the future. Although
this was the smallest meeting
of the weekend, the potential
impact could be huge!
Saturday night I preached on
“Seeing Jesus” and we saw at
least sixty people respond to
the gospel. It was wonderful
to see so many coming to the
altar. That night we saw an
amazing miracle as I prayed for
an eight year old girl, blind in one eye from birth. Within moments,
her sight was totally restored. In floods of tears her testimony was
simply “Jesus has healed me forever!”
On Sunday I preached to hundreds of people in three back to back
services. In the Sunday morning, we again saw around sixty decisions
for Christ and another wonderful miracle as a woman who had had
pain in her back, legs and kidneys for over ten years was healed. The
pain in her body had been so bad that at times she had been unable
to work. As we prayed, she felt fire all over her body and before long
she was testifying that she was now pain free!
The final service at Agape was to a bumper crowd of over seven
hundred people. I spoke on “Bartimeus” and nearly the whole church
ran to the altar for an encounter with Jesus! It was an incredible
sight! We saw loads of first time decisions and the fire of God fell in
what was a mighty move of God.
After our time at Agape we were able to support several smaller
ministries in Cordoba, which is the second largest city in the country.
On Monday we met a dear couple who have a wonderful ministry to
street children. Thanks to the kindness of our partners we were able
to bless them financially. The next day, we met with their church and
another smaller church for a midweek meeting. Both congregations
have gone through tough times in recent years and speaking on “You
Are The God Who Sees Me” we saw the presence of God move in a
wonderful way. The Holy Spirit manifested in such a strong way and
God gave us prophetic words for many people, with many being in
tears, broken and prostrate before God.
The following night, we ministered in another needy church and
again God’s fire fell. It was great to see many children respond to the
gospel in this meeting.
Also, during this time it was good to fellowship with many Assemblies
of God pastors
at their regional
went to the town of
We first visited
Chancani in 2012.
It is an incredibly
small, needy place,
isolated from the
rest of the province.
To give you an idea
of how remote it is, we travelled for over an hour on the main road
there and only passed one other car the whole time!
In 2012 God told me that He was sending me to that village to reach
one person with the gospel. That person was Barbara, and what a joy
three years later to see that her life has been totally transformed! She
is full of joy and has a real hunger for God, It was wonderful that she
was able to give testimony in the meeting about what God had done
On this trip, however, we saw God touch more than just one person!
The first night was fairly quiet, we gathered in the town square
and just began to preach. We had a decent response with about
seventeen responding to the gospel. What was amazing though
was to see so many people from the town watching and listening
from across the road. As I led people in the sinner’s prayer I wasn’t
prepared for what happened next. As we laid hands on people,
they began to fall under the power of God! This created quite a
commotion and suddenly those who had been watching, rushed over
to see what was happening. The following day the town was full of
rumours of visitors with “magic powers” who had come to visit!
That evening we had a bumper crowd of over two hundred people
with around seventy responding to the gospel. Over the two nights
that means there were around one hundred decisions. For a town
with a population of around five hundred that’s a pretty big deal!
Following the preaching of the gospel, the fire of God fell on those
who had responded. We saw a boy healed who had bad eyesight
and several other healings too. One of those healed was a lady
with terrible back pain. As I prayed she fell face down on the
floor. She had a top on that exposed her back, and I watched in
amazement as I saw the bones in her back moving back into place.
She got up totally pain free. Glory to God!
We then travelled back to Cordoba for a
second weekend of ministry in the city. On
the Saturday night we ministered at a youth
service where I preached on the Holy Spirit.
Every single young person responded and
we were able to release several prophetic
words over people. The presence of God was
so strong in that meeting with many young
people crying and broken before God. After
the ministry time there was a wonderful holy
hush as young people carried on praying for
one another long after I had officially finished
On Sunday morning we were honoured to minister for David Saint
at his church in Cordoba. The glory of God turned up in a mighty
way and nearly everyone in the church wanted prayer. There
was one wonderful moment where a couple in the church who
had been going through marital difficulties were reconciled and
movingly embraced one another following a prophetic word from
one of the team.
On Sunday evening we visited an amazing church in Carlos Paz. This
place was packed and the people were so hungry for God. The fire
of God fell in that place and it was an incredible time of encounter.
Many people were touched with the joy of the Lord, while even
some of our own team were totally undone in the presence of God.
Again, leaving Cordoba we spent two days ministering in the town
of Mina Clavero. The first night was quite a tough night and I had to
really preach through what I felt was a strong religious barrier (it is
a very strong Roman Catholic area). Praise God that we saw around
fifty salvations that night and the next night the heavens were
opened and we enjoyed a wonderful move of the Holy Spirit with
more salvations plus healings, prophecy and people being touched
by God. It was especially wonderful to see the three sons of our
host pastor all being powerfully touched as they re-dedicated their
lives to Christ.
Whilst in Mina Clavero we had the opportunity to share the gospel
on secular radio and also met the mayor who attended near the
end of the second service. This Roman
Catholic walked in just as the fire was falling
during the altar call! Afterwards he said he
had never seen anything like it, except on
TV! After the service we got the chance to
share a few words with the local pastors and
pray for them, another great move of God’s
Our biggest meetings were reserved for near
the end of the trip as we spent three nights
doing back to back outdoor crusades in the
city of Villa Dolores.
The first two nights we had around six
hundred people in attendance.
On the first night I preached on “God’s
Judgement”, a hard hitting message on sin, hell and repentance.
Around two hundred came to the altar with many weeping and
repenting under the conviction of the Holy Spirit. I refused to pray
for the sick that night as I made it clear that salvation was the
greatest need and the greatest miracle. It was a great joy to have
a young boy come up to me at the end and say “when I grow up I
want to preach the gospel!”
The second night we again saw well over a hundred people respond
to the gospel as I preached on “The Blood Of Christ”. We saw many
children powerfully touched.
God gave us great favour in Villa Dolores, opening up the doors to
meet the mayor and pray with him and also minister on the radio. With
the evening meetings being outdoor we were also able to minister to
people who hadn’t actually come to the meeting. The second meeting
was held on a couple of basketball courts surrounded by children’s
play activities. We heard the testimony of one man who
had taken his children there to play, stopping what he was
doing and listening as the gospel was being preached. He
said he had never heard anything like it before!
This was the night we saw another outstanding miracle as
we prayed for an eighteen year old girl who had been born
with a severe spinal condition that left her unable to walk
without leg braces. As I laid hands on her she fell under
the power of God. As I then placed my hands on her legs I
heard bones cracking
and moving back into
place. Within a few
moments she had
taken the leg braces
off and was walking unaided for the
first time in her life!
That night, two young girls who
had been victims of sexual abuse
responded to words of knowledge
from two of our team members
and were both powerfully touched.
We believe God set them free from
the trauma they had gone through.
On the last night, we had our largest crowd of around two thousand
people. Again, there were many hundreds of people responding to
salvation and also a call for prodigals to return home. We prayed
specifically for children and later pastors that were in attendance and
the Holy Spirit touched both sets of people. Tears fell as we ministered
to those responding to the gospel for the first time. What a mighty
three days we had!
On our last Sunday morning in Argentina, I preached at Bethel church, a
Messianic congregation led by Omar Francia, who had been overseeing
all the meetings in Mina Clavero and Villa Dolores. I preached on
mission and evangelism and it was awesome to see nearly the entire
church responding to being committed to fulfil the Great Commission
in their area.
At the end of the meeting a young girl who was blind in one eye asked
for prayed. I prayed for a few minutes but nothing happened. I prayed
again and again she was still unable to see. I told
her to keep trusting God and then turned away. As
I did, the girl broke down sobbing in her mother’s
arms. I felt such compassion towards her and
refused to believe that it was God’s will for her
to remain this way. I grabbed her and asked her
straight “do you believe Jesus can heal you?” In a
flash she responded “yes” “Then go and lay hands
on your own eye and come back and tell me what
happens”. She came back a few minutes later with
a huge smile “I can see!” This is Jesus!
While I was preaching here, Scott Bottger
(Heritage Fellowship, Kentucky) was preaching in
another church with the rest of the team. I spoke
to the host pastor afterwards and he was very
happy with what God had done in the meeting.
God’s fire had fallen in a mighty way!
Sunday evening was our last official meeting before the team went
home. We ministered at a packed church in a place called Mirlo. This
church is very open to the Holy Spirit and so we ended the trip with a
real outpouring of the Holy Spirit!
The Key Of David
By Andrew Murray
“I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever
and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.”
In Revelation chapter 5, the apostle John has a
vision of a scroll that is sealed with seven seals. As
heaven asks who is worthy to break open the seals,
John is devastated to learn that there is no one in
heaven, earth or under the earth worthy enough to
break open the seals. Suddenly, a triumphant cry
comes from one of the elders “‘Do not weep! See,
the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David,
has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and
its seven seals.” (Revelation 5v5) The elder was of
course referring to Jesus Christ, the One who was
worthy and able to break open the seals.
Many believers today are desperate for a breakthrough. Many
times it seems breakthrough is an impossibility. However, there
is no need to weep and despair. Jesus Christ is still worthy and
He is still able to bring breakthrough into the most hopeless of
A few years ago I was ministering in
a prison in Kenya. It was a slightly
daunting place with guards who had
machine guns and prisoners wearing
black and white stripped uniforms. I
shared a few words before my pastor
preached the gospel and several of the
men gave their lives to Jesus. At the
end of the message the Kenyan pastor,
who had arranged the visit, announced that we were to go and lay
hands on the men who had responded. A little reluctantly I moved
among these criminals and started to pray for each one. When I
got to one man, I paused.
The Holy Spirit had given me a word for him. “Sir”, I said, “God has
brought you to this prison because He wanted to meet with you
here but very soon you will be released from this prison and when
you are on the outside you will serve God”. As I gave the word a
few people around me began to laugh.
Afterwards they told me what was so funny. The man was in
prison for murder. He was under a life sentence. “In our country
life means life. This man will never be released. He will die in this
A few weeks later I received an email from the pastor in Kenya.
It seemed that there had been a problem in that prison with
over-crowding. The government had never done this before in
history but they had written a list of prisoners who were in that
jail for minor offences. They had pardoned them to make room for
more serious felons. For some reason, that no one could explain, that
man’s name had got on the list! His sentence had been cancelled and
he walked through the doors a free man! He contacted the pastor to let
him know what had happened and dedicated his life to serve God!
Friend we truly serve a God of breakthrough! A God who makes a way
where there seems to be no way! A God who still holds the keys of
victory to every battle that we face and a God who holds the keys to
any and every situation!
The Keys of the Kingdom
Not only does Jesus
have the keys - He has
given the keys to His
As encouraging as this is to know, it is also important to understand
that Jesus is not the only one who has the keys. In Matthew 16v19,
Jesus speaks directly to Peter, however He is also speaking prophetically
to all who would become members of the Church, that was built on
the rock. Jesus promises us “I will give you the keys of the kingdom
of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and
whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
Not only does Jesus have the keys – He has
given the keys to His Church! When I married
my wife, she moved into the apartment that
I owned. The first thing that I did after we got
married was to give her a copy of the keys. What
kind of husband would I be if I said I was the
only one who could have keys? As the Bride of
Christ, Jesus has given us a copy of the keys to
His Kingdom! He has said of His Church “we (me
and the Father) will come to them and make our
home with them. (John 14v23). As He makes His home in us, He gives
us a copy of the keys to His Kingdom.
The Kingdom of God is God’s realm. It contains His presence and
His “stuff”. The Kingdom is a place of joy, abundance, peace, grace,
forgiveness, mercy, healing, strength, righteousness, wisdom and so
much more. Whoever has the keys has the access and the right to
obtain all that God is and all that God has.
Prayer and the Church
Jesus has said that His Church should be a place of prayer: ‘It is written,’
he said to them, ‘“My house will be called a house of prayer,” (Matthew
As the army of God, we must use the weapon of prayer in order to see
God’s Kingdom advance. It is only through prayer that we will see the
victory. You cannot win a spiritual battle with carnal weapons.
When we pray however, we must see that the Church has already been
given the keys to the Kingdom. Perhaps, you have found yourself in the
unfortunate position of being locked outside, having lost your
keys! You hammer on the door, trying to get someone’s attention,
hoping someone will answer. How foolish would it be to do that
if you already had the keys! You could open up the door and walk
Many believers treat prayer like they are beggars, shivering in
the cold, hammering away, trying to get God’s attention. When
we realise that Jesus has already given us the keys and we have
access to an open door it changes the way we approach prayer.
When I started working at Bethel church in Barnsley in 2001
one of the first things they gave me was a copy of the keys.
That meant I had access to the church any time day or night. If
I wanted to, I could enter the church at 3.00 am. If the police
stopped me I could show them that I had the keys and they knew
I had a legal right of entry. When I left that church in 2014, I had
to hand my keys back. Now I am restricted to accessing that
building only when it is open to the public. It doesn’t matter that
I was there 13 years. It doesn’t matter that I know the pastor. I
don’t have the keys, so if I enter without permission I am a thief.
The church will never pray correctly and never be victorious,
praying like it doesn’t deserve to pray. But when we understand
that we have the keys to God’s Kingdom and can access His
throne room any time, day or night, we have discovered a
The Master Key
A number of years ago I was ministering in the nation of Zambia.
On the last day we were flying home and
needed to leave the hotel very early in
the morning. I contacted reception the
night before and asked them to give me
an early morning wake up call. The next
morning I woke up suddenly and looking
at my watch, I realised they had forgotten
to call me! I had only a few minutes to get
downstairs. Quickly dressing I grabbed my
bags and went to the door handle. Disaster struck as I pulled it,
the handle fell off in my hand with the door still locked! I began
to shout, but it would do no good as even if my friends heard me,
they only had keys for their doors.
Eventually I got someone’s attention and a porter came with
something very special. He had a master key to the hotel. It was
the key that opened up every door! He quickly used that key to
let me out.
Notice that Jesus, spoke about the “keys” to the Kingdom, plural.
There are many keys in the Kingdom. But hidden in the Word of
God, is a master key. This is a key that opens up any and every
door and it is a key that God longs for His Church to discover.
This key is called the key of David. Jesus spoke about this key in
Revelation 3v7: “These are the words of him who is holy and
true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can
shut, and what he shuts no one can open.”
See that whatever He opens remains open. This shows us that
not only is the Key of David a master key that opens every door,
but also it brings permanent breakthrough. Many times in life
we see the same old problems reoccurring. But the key of David
enables a permant breakthrough. Things open and shift and
remain that way. Not only does the key of David open things,
it also shuts the door. We need to shut the door to sickness,
negativity, unbelief, bad habits, doubt, fear and so many other
things, in our lives. The believer that has the key of David is able
to do this.
What is the key of David?
The key of David
I believe that in naming this master key after King David, the Holy Spirit
is pointing us to the life of David. There are two distinguishing marks of
the life of David. Number one – He was a worshipper. Number two – He
was a pursuer of God’s presence.
This is also where our victory lies. In being a believer that puts on the
garments of praise and boldly and passionately lifts up the name of
Jesus; we are given the keys of victory. And when like David we say
“My heart says of you, seek His face; your face Lord I will seek” (Psalm
63v1), we find the master key that gives us access to keys to Kingdom
Several months ago I lost the spare key to my car and couldn’t find
it anywhere. That car was being sold and the new owner insisted on
having the spare key. Faced with the prospect of knocking loads of
money from the agreed price I was in a panic and looked all over the
house and couldn’t find it anywhere. I went to bed that evening and
prayed saying “Lord, you know where that key is, you need to tell me”.
As soon as I woke up, the Lord told me where it was, in a very very
obscure place, but I picked it up straight away. The lesson - I worried
and stressed and couldn’t find that key, but as soon as I prayed, the key
was there. Easy.
Here is what God said: “Many of my people are faced with closed
doors, they are hammering on the door trying to get it to open and
are begging for the keys. Others once knew what it was to live with the
open door but now all doors have closed and there is a panic that the
keys seem to have been lost.
There are keys that open up doors to finance,
ministry opportunities, family being saved,
marriages being restored. There are keys
to abundance, joy, peace and deliverance.
For church leaders there are keys to new
buildings, keys to your city and community.
For evangelists there are keys to nations,
regions and miracles. As long as you stress,
panic, strategies and try to find the key to your breakthrough in your
own strength, the way will remain hidden. But in my presence, keys are
found. The key to your breakthrough, the key to your open door.
For the Lord says “I am the One who holds the key of David, what I
open no one can shut and what I shut no one can open”. The name
David means “Beloved”. As you walk in the reality of being the Beloved
of God, as you embrace your identity as His Bride, as you rest, enjoy
and abide in His presence, and live in the simplicity of being a lover of
Jesus, it is in that place that keys are found. Christ still gives the keys to
the kingdom to His Church, but not the Church that walks in the flesh,
but the Church that walks in the Spirit.
I see in the Spirit, keys, lost keys, abandoned keys, keys long forgotten,
but keys ready to be found and put into locks that will open with
ease to those who have the keys. There is a door of blessing, a door
of breakthrough, a door of destiny and Christ has the keys. The Lord
urges His people to go back to His presence, back to the place of prayer
and fasting, back to the intimacy of worship, become His beloved and
find and pick up the keys He intends for you to have.”
Heaven on earth
In Psalm 62, David says “I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld
your power and your glory.” Have you ever stopped to think that under
the Old covenant David wasn’t actually allowed access into the glory of
God? Only the High Priest could access God’s glory and he only once a
Yet because David was a worshipper and a pursuer of God’s presence,
he found the keys to a dispensation that would only come later, after
the death of Jesus.
In the same way, although we are now in the Church age, there is
another dispensation coming, it is called the dispensation of the
Kingdom. In that age, there will be no more death, sickness, pain
or injustice. In that age we will see Him face to face and be like
Some believers are content to live in defeat and bondage on earth,
waiting for that future dispensation that is coming. However, if we
as the Church will discover true Spirit and Truth worship and start
to really hunger and thirst after God’s presence, then maybe will
find the keys that enable us to access what is coming in the future,
right now. Maybe that is what it means in Hebrews 6 when it talks
of those “who have tasted the goodness of the Word of God and
the powers of the coming age”
When we have the key of David we can taste heaven now, we can
taste resurrection power, healing, glory and justice now. This is
what God longs to show His Church.
river to carry us to the lost and broken we find ourselves in the midst of
the enemy’s camp, but not as captives, but as victors. We have found
the keys to the city God has promised us.
In speaking of the religious leaders of his day Jesus said “Woe to you
experts in the law, because you have taken away the key to knowledge.
You yourselves have not entered, and you have hindered those who
were entering.” (Luke 11v52)
You see religion always robs people of the keys to the Kingdom. A
believer that doesn’t have an active prayer life doesn’t have the keys
of victory that it needs. But as the army of God we must discover once
again the old secret of the secret place. We must again go back to that
secret place of prayer and that river of the Holy Spirit. A Church that
responds to the Spirit’s call to pray, will find the keys to their city and
whatever other breakthrough they need. Let us all resolve to be the
Spirit filled, praying people that Jesus requires us to be.
The Keys of Destiny
The city of Jerusalem was David’s destiny and inheritance. The
only problem was that between David and his inheritance was
an enemy. The enemy mocked David saying “‘You will not get in
here; even the blind and the lame can ward you off.’ They thought,
‘David cannot get in here.” (2 Samuel 5v6).
Like David we too have an inheritance. Psalm 2 says “Ask me and
I will make the nations your inheritance” (v8). Our inheritance is
that we will see His Kingdom come in our nations and His glory
change our communities. But we too have an enemy that mocks
us “Great Britain (substitute your nation) belongs to me”, says the
enemy. “The Church is finished, a dwindling minority. Immorality
has won, darkness has won. The Church has failed”.
Yet, the Bible declares “Nevertheless, David captured the fortress
of Zion – which is the City of David.” (v2 Samuel 5v7)
I want to prophesy a “nevertheless” over your church, your
community, your nation and your life today! It doesn’t matter how
small or needy your church is…..NEVERTHELESS! It doesn’t matter
what strongholds are over your community….NEVERTHELSS!
It doesn’t matter how backslidden your nation appears…..
NEVERTHELESS! It doesn’t matter what the doctor has said....
NEVERTHLESS! It doesn’t matter how hopeless the situation
appears....NEVERTHLESS! It doesn’t matter how far away that
prodigal is away from God....NEVERTHLESS!
You see underneath the city was a hidden shaft of water. It was a
secret place that not even the enemy noticed. David and his men,
got on their hands and knees and climbed up that water shaft.
They came out a bit soggy, but they were right in the center of the
enemies camp! They had found the key to the city!
The key to taking cities is still the same today. There is a secret
place, it is called the secret place of prayer. The enemy cannot
see us in the secret place because in that place we “dwell in
the shelter of the Most High and rest under the shadow of the
Almighty” (Psalm 91). But God sees us in that secret place. He
“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray
to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is
done in secret, will reward you.” (Matthew 6v6)
In the secret place there is a hidden flow of water. It is called the
river of the Holy Spirit. God is calling His Church to fight from
their knees. Like David and his men, let us get on our hands and
knees in a posture of prayer and worship and enter the river of
His presence. As we become immersed in that river and allow the

Confidence in Prayer
Prayer is one of those things that all
Christians know they should do, but
many struggle with. Most Christians
desire to take their prayer life to another
level. In this powerful teaching, Andrew
Murray teaches on why we can pray with
confidence and assurance. Let your faith
soar, as we look at the relationship God
has brought us into and how that effects
our prayer life and our ability to access
God’s throne room.
When Jesus shed His blood on the
cross it was about much more than
forgiveness and salvation. When Jesus
shed His blood, He entered into a
covenant with you. Using the life of
Abraham as an example, Andrew Murray
teaches on what a blood covenant is
and what is the covenant that Christ
has made with His Church. This is an
inspiring message, that will inspire you
to receive all that God has for you today.
Andrew reports on our November trip to
Generation Builders partnered with Revive Church for a week
long mission trip to Uruapan in Mexico. Evangelist Andrew was
joined by members of Revive Church plus campus pastor Jonathan
Whitehouse as well as Pastor Rene Rocha from Heritage Fellowship
in the USA.
Our host was Pastor Salomon Valdez and our first service in Mexico
was in his church: Uruapan Revival Center on a Wednesday night. I
spoke on pursuing the anointing from the life of Elisha and we had
a great time in God’s presence, with the Holy Spirit touching many
people. It was especially amazing to see many young people and
even unbelievers having encounters with God.
On Wednesday and Thursday morning we held pastor’s conferences
in a hotel suite that had been hired. These two mornings were the
undoubted highlight of the trip as God did incredibly significant
things. We had been told prior to arriving that historically there
had been a lot of division among churches, with pastors very rarely
coming together to meet or work with each other. It was in this
backdrop of hostility that we were ministering. Over 100 leaders
gathered from all kinds of denominations and backgrounds from
very strict conservative type churches, to churches that were much
more liberal. It would need a true outpouring from God to break
through all these different groups.
On the first day I spoke on “joy” sharing on how God’s joy is our
strength and then prophesying over the city that they would
rejoice as men rejoice at harvest time. As I invited people forward
for prayer, there was a rush to the altar as the vast majority of the
pastors were desperate for God to touch them. The fire of God
began to fall on these leaders with many being refreshed, healed,
set free and restored.
The second day was described by Pastor Salomon as “historic” and
later he said he felt like he was dreaming because of what God did.
As I ministered, the altar was packed as pastors and leaders lay
weeping in repentance and rededicating themselves to God’s service.
Afterwards, in a powerful form of unity the leaders ministered to
each other, but I encouraged them to pray for those who were from
different denominations or church affiliations. God did an amazing
work of healing in this city, bringing true unity and restoration. It was
an honour to see God at work.
The evening gospel crusades were done within the shadow of the
“Day Of The Dead” festival which had taken place just days before.
As the nation had come together to celebrate and worship death,
we stood on the promise of God’s word that “The people walking
in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the shadow of
death a light has dawned.” (Isaiah 9)
On the first evening around 700 people gathered, with around 100 of
those responding to the gospel. There were many healing’s including
a woman who had had pain in her knees for 5 years being instantly
healed, people throwing away walking canes and demons being cast
The second night was another incredible service with many
salvations, impartations and encounters. One amazing testimony
was that of a blind lady who was instantly healed during the ministry
time. The woman was in total shock. She had been blind for over
2 years because of diabetes. Remarkably the woman was from
California, USA and was only in Mexico on holiday!
On the Saturday we held a conference for youth and teenagers.
Pastor Jonathan Whitehouse shared his testimony of deliverance
from drug addiction and around 30 young people came forward to
receive Christ as Saviour. Then another 200 or so young people came
out wanting the power of God. The fire of God fell on these hungry
youth and the meeting was extended as God’s presence was just
On the Sunday, the team split up, with the ladies from Revive church
ministering in one church and Pastor Jonathan ministering in 3
different churches. I spoke in 2 churches. The church I spoke at in
the morning was led by Pastor David Rice, who translated in many
of the services. His church were holding a “Bring a Friend Sunday”
and many new people responded to the gospel. The altar was so full
at the end of the message, that I couldn’t physically get to everyone
to lay hands on them. We trusted that the presence of God would
minister and it did.
We had an incredible few days in Mexico with God moving in such
power. Already we are planning to return later this year (2016) but
this time doing a tour of the region, with a repeat of the format (day
time Pastors meetings,
evening gospel crusades)
in several different cities.
Please continue to join us
in prayer as we contend
for a great harvest of souls
in these days.
America is a nation where God continues to bless us with good friends and open doors.
It has been an honour to visit the States twice in 2015 and see God Do amazing things.
In May Andrew spent two weeks ministering in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and Michigan.
It was great to preach for our good friends Cleddie Keith, Roy Ellis, Shane Brunner,
Trent Houchell, Billy Price, Josh Shulz, Ron Neal and Drew Neal. As well as ministering
in churches, Andrew also shared the gospel in a prison and a school. In both places,
souls came to Christ.
In October, Andrew returned to the US but this time Laura and Judah came with him.
We had a special time with our good friends Ron and Teri Neal at Creekside Ministries,
Indiana, as Andrew taught in their School of Ministry and also at their annual Fall
conference. We ministered in several other churches on this trip including Heritage
Fellowship in Florence, led by Pastor Cleddie Keith and Solid Rock church in Ohio, led
by Lawrence Bishop. Wherever we met, the power of God moved and hundreds were
impacted by the Holy Spirit.
AZZATO UK TOUR
In November, Carmine
and Jennifer Azzato
the UK for a two
week ministry tour
Former Pro-Wrestler, Carmine, and Jennifer, an incredibly
powerful worship leader, both have a strong evangelistic and
prophetic ministry. During the two weeks we travelled all
over the UK, ministering at Revive Church (East Yorkshire),
Fresh Fire in Manchester, The Threshold church in Hull,
New Beginning’s in Halifax, Radical Church in Norwich,
Rock Church Walsall and Revival Christian Centre in Enfield.
Andrew and Laura Murray ministered in each service. We
had amazing services with so many testimonies of healings,
salvations, breakthroughs and encounters with Jesus. We
look forward to partnering with Azzato ministries again in
“ ‘Wow!’ is the word that comes to mind when we think
about our two and half week tour through the UK! Firstly,
The Murray’s who lead Generation Builders and who are
DEAR friends of ours, just rocked our socks off with their
love, kindness and generosity. They are powerhouses and
it’s an honour ANY time we get to partner with this family!
Secondly, every city we went to, every person we met, we
will never forget the faces, the churches, the communities.
They impacted us with their hunger for more community,
more presence and more JOY! It was just a blessing to us
to be on the receiving side of the hunger. And with that
hunger was flowing words of knowledge, people having
their first encounters with Jesus, EVER, in the history of
their lives. God was feeding His people and filling them
with gladness. As we continue hearing stories of lives
impacted by that tour we look more and more forward to
returning to the beautiful United Kingdom to be a part of
the MORE that God is pouring out on this great nation!”
~ Carmine & Jennifer Azzato
Andrew reports on our July trip to
During the summer, Andrew travelled with Sam
Dent and Tanya Parker (from Revive Church Hull)
to Albania for our first mission trip to this
NATION. We connected with Pastor Barry Ogden,
an American missionary who leads a church in
Tirana, the capital city of Albania.
I spoke several times at this church during the trip and
afterwards Barry said “The recent ministry of Andrew
Murray and the Generation Builders team was a divine
appointment, not only for our church, but for the nation
of Albania! In the weeks leading up to the visit, God
promised healing, salvation and deliverance... And He
delivered! Brother Andrew moves in step with the Holy
Spirit under a powerful anointing, and delivers the Word
in a way that connects with the mature believer and
the atheist sceptic alike. I know that lives were changed
and seeds were planted for transformation in this
once-atheistic land. Thank you Andrew and Generation
Builders for your obedience to Christ in coming to
During these meetings we saw many touched by the
Holy Spirit, several salvations, people testifying of
healing, prophetic words released and deliverance. It
was also amazing to see our hotel receptionist, who
had a Muslim background, come to the meeting and
give her life to Jesus.
As well as speaking in Tirana we ministered in serveral
other churches in other parts of the country and also
spoke in a prison where we got the chance to share the
gospel with the inmates.
and we truly had some powerful times together with people
encountering God and testimonies of healing and salvation.
AS OF JANUARY 2015, ANDREW AND LAURA HAVE MADE REVIVE
CHURCH THEIR HOME CHURCH. REVIVE IS A MULTI-SITE CHURCH IN EAST
YORKSHIRE LED BY JARROD COOPER. JARROD HAS BEEN A GOOD FRIEND
AND SUPPORTER TO THIS MINISTRY FOR MANY YEARS.
Once a month Andrew preaches in one of the churches
various campus’, currently Hull, Goole and Driffield. Andrew is
also a regular speaker at the mid-week Bible school.
Throughout 2015, Generation Builders ran bi-monthly
revival services on a Saturday night in Revive’s Bridlington
Avenue building. The heart behind these meetings was to
see Christian’s from around the region, hungry for God’s
presence, gather together to encounter Him. It was awesome
to see believers from around Yorkshire and even further afield
(some even travelling from London) attend these meetings
In September, Generation Builders ran it’s first conference
“Glory In The Land” with Andrew and Jarrod both speaking.
What an amazing time we had!
This January (2016), Generation Builders is partnering with
Revive Church to run a full time ministry school for young
people aged 18-35. This will be an incredible course where
students will be taught and discipled by Andrew, Jarrod and
the Revive team as well as being busy serving in the local
church and going on mission with Generation Builders.
MIRACLES, BOOKS &
BY ANDREW MURRAY
“Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written
down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room
for the books that would be written.”
(John 21v25 )
One of my favourite verses in the Bible is John
21v25 which says “Jesus did many other things as
well. If every one of them were written down, I
suppose that even the whole world would not have
room for the books that would be written.”
healing the sick, setting the captives free and loving the broken.
As we minister the gospel in word and deed, each page of our
book is filled with the mighty expolits we have done for Christ!
As each member of the body of Christ becomes a history maker,
then truely the whole world will be filled with the books of what
Christ has done through His body.
What an awesome scripture! Many miracles are recorded
in the gospels, from the blind having their sight restored, to
the lame walking, the lepers being cleansed and even the
dead being raised! Then there are the accounts of other
miracles such as walking on water, the feeding of the 5000
and the calming of the storm. Then what about the times
when Jesus ministered to whole crowds of people healing
them all? And what about the lives of men like Zaccheus
and the woman at the well who were never the same after
an encounter with the Master? It
would be true to say that Jesus’
whole ministry was a continuous
account of miracle after miracle,
everything He said and did was
But still, what an incredible
statement – that if everyone of
Jesus’ miracles had been written
down, the whole world would not be able to contain the
books that would be written! As I was pondering this
thought, the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said “you are one
of those books!” Suddenly an awesome revelation dropped
into my spirit. It says “Jesus DID many other things as well”.
I believe we could just as easily say “Jesus is DOING many
other things as well”. The book of Acts begins with Luke
saying that he wrote about all that “Jesus BEGAN to do and
teach”. The miracle ministry of Jesus has not ended but has
continued for over 2000 years. Today Christ works through
each and every Christian, as they do the works He did and
even greater things.
Everyone of our lives is a book. The apostle Paul said “you
show that you are a letter from Christ” (2 Corinthians 3v3).
Just as the 10 commandments were written by the finger
of God, God wants to write on each page of our lives by
His Spirit. “All the days ordained for me were written in
your book” (Pslm 139). Each day we have an opportunity
to continue the ministry of Jesus by preaching the gospel,
I wonder when our
book is opened how
many pages will be
There are history books yet to be written, miracles still to be
performed, revivals still to take place. On our own the book
of our life may seem small and insignifacant, but we are part
of God’s library, a library that the whole world can’t contain.
From Wigglesworth to Finney, to some un-known prayer
warrior somewhere, we are part of the ministry of Jesus that is
continuing to be written.
The Bible says that one day we will stand before Christ and the
books will be opened. I wonder when our
book is opened how many pages will be
blank as we wasted days and opportunities
to serve Jesus? I don’t know about you but
I want my book to be filled! I want every
page to tell of souls saved, bodies healed,
prayers prayed and battles won! I don’t
want one page to be empty!
The book of Acts has not ended. Neither
has the ministry of Jesus. Each one of us is a book and God
wants to write on each page of our lives and tell of the history
we have made. As the church continues to make history, the
whole world will be filled with the books written about what
Christ did: for three and half years in the flesh, and for 2000 plus
years through His Spirit, working in men and women like me and
Water into wine
Jesus’ first miracle was the turning of water into wine. The
Bible tells us that it was through this miracle that He revealed
His glory. Today Jesus still wants to reveal His glory, through our
lives and churches. How? We look at this miracle and see how
through a simple act of outpouring, Jesus releases His glory in
and through us.
