Arise! LivingWater Ministries (CALM)
is a non-denominational non-profit Christian organization whose
vision is to be of service to the Body of Christ in these end times.
Simply put, the vision of the Ministry is to arouse the Body of
Christ to the challenges and opportunities of these end times. We
seek to encourage children of God not to give up to the wiles of
the devil, who as the Scriptures say, is on the rampage these days,
knowing that he has but a short time (Rev 12). Simultaneously, we
seek to encourage Christians to have and maintain a Kingdom perspective
whereby sensitive issues, many of eternal consequences, will be
seen and addressed from Kingdom rather than denominational perspectives.
The vision for this
work was received
at the God's End Time Army Conference 1997, organized by the Sword
of the Spirit Ministries, at Ibadan. After an initial 7-month period
of testing the vision, the ministry commenced operations in October
1997. In the past three years, the Lord has been confirming in many
ways that He indeed has committed unto us a tangible ministry. Having
now recognized this, we are determined to spare no effort in seeking
to fulfill this ministry, despite vigorous opposition by the devil.
We believe that today's formal spiritual commissioning by divinely
ordained members of the Body of Christ will go a long way in helping
us to achieve this objective.
founding principle and central motivating conviction
for CALM is that the literal visible return of the Lord
Jesus Christ is imminent; and that the priority business
of the hour is building the Church and making Her ready
for this great coming event. One way of contributing to
this priority business is by making available and presenting
appropriately information that would provoke men and women
to Christian responses with respect to events unfolding
in their environment. Satan's only hope of being able to
stand up against the Church is by confusing issues and discouraging
Christians; and thereafter creeping in and catching the
Saints unawares. Thank God for the ministry of watchmen,
in which we feel the Lord calling us to partake.
