FROM THE ARCHIVES

    "Therefore every scribe who has become a disciple of the kingdom of heaven is like a head of a household, who brings out of his treasure things new and old." Mt. 13:52        .

First Love Ministry originated as a hand written circulation letter writing ministry in 1987-88 as the American prophetic movement was entering prominence and evangelical Christianity was at its zenith of influence in American politics. In these letter-articles Chris Anderson imparts from his instructional prophetic well to a relational circuit of "wilderness" saints stretching from the Carolinas and the Midwest to Maritime Canada, and later toward the established church.

In this collection from the basement of this 30 year "wine cellar," you will find writings both instructional and devotional. The personal flavor of many of these letter articles has been retained, though full names of the original recipients have been withheld. The articles are presented here in the sequence they were written and include those from this early period already featured in the
main index.  

 

(1978)

Early musings of a freshly Spirit-baptized fundamentalist....



1987

  • FLIGHT FROM BABYLON: THE COMING SALVATION FROM THE WORKS OF COLLECTIVE SOCIETY & LABOUR NOT FOR THE MEAT THAT PERISHES
      Are you a "western Christian?" Are you "part of" the surrounding society or just "passing through?"Are you settled into the culture with a nice mortgaged home and a predictable 9 to 5 career job? Are you also part of a "church" identified by its equally nice, mortgaged brick-and-mortar building in town? Are you the consummate lover of "God, family and country?" If so, come on a panoramic tour of the ultimate "culture war" of all history, and prepare for what could become the most rude awakening of your life...


    1988
  • The Inconsistency of Spiritual Pharisaism,

    The Biblical Case for Present Revelation &

    The Word of God Through Flesh and Blood

     

    Presenting the Demand for a Spirit-based Christian Epistemology

    Are you a professing believer in Christ who denies that God still speaks today and that He still raises up inspired prophets? Be prepared to be undone by the power of your own belief in the new birth. A must read for all fundamentalist and evangelical scriptural apologists. (The pilot circulation letter of this ministry).




    The original letter born out of conflict with prophetic Christian political mesmerization over the 1988 U.S. presidential race laying the ground for the themes of purified Christian identity from nationalism throughout this ministry. See also Purified Identity: The Foudational Series and the Purified Identity section in the main index.




    • THE TWO CURRENTS OF KINGDOM RIVER

        Expanding on the discussion of superficial and deeper realities in the life of the Church 



    • THE ICE CUBE TRAY AND THE LADDER

        Discussing the relationship between the modes of soft (fluid) and hardened (codified) revelation in the Christian walk of obedience.



    • BUILDING FROM THE INSIDE OUT (SERIES)

        Deals with the carnal thinking embedded into the generationally repeating idea of restoring the church by trying to more purely "copy" New Testament patterns of practice. 



    • THE BIBLICAL CASE FOR PRESENT REVELATION

        The simple testimony of the New Testament authors themselves to the ongoing dynamic of the Holy Spirit revelation until the coming of the Lord. Stripping away the blindly concocted presumptions assigned to scripture by the spirit of cessationism. 



    • A TESTIMONY

        A personal word to the first circulation letter readers describing the nature of the burden behind this writing ministry.




    1989




    • THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS (SERIES)

        Never before released! If any series in this teaching ministry had to be assigned ultimate priority above all others, it would be this one.....



    • WHAT IS COMMITMENT ALL ABOUT?

      A letter to an establishment pastor from a freshly landed wilderness prophet outlining the true spiritual nature of commitment necessary under the structure of a visibly organized church.



    • REVELATIONS FROM IDIOCY

        Out of the frustrations of yet one last "straw-breaking" experience with "southern-style" spiritual antics comes a super-charged 5-themed article covering

    - the dying American wineskin,
    - the losing Christian American defensive mentality,
    - the anointing in proper perspective of the harvest process,
    - the deluded confusion of divine identity in the American church, and
    - the coming new "super revelation" of the Gospel

    This seminal article plants the seeds for what will eventually become the major treatises The Transformation and the Anointing, The Holy Spirit in the Church of Laodicea and The New Gentiles and the Next Revelation of Christ. A must read!



      A discussion of how prophetic revelation must continually be exchanged over time as we approach fulfilment of a prophetic destination.


      A first exposition of the weakness, incompleteness and latent hypocrisy found within the wilderness prophetic stream with an exhortation to receptiveness of the Holy Spirit's work within the larger mainstream prophetic church. A complement to the  developing revelation of the Mystery of Spiritual Gender and a primer for the Lessons from the Wilderness series.


    • PREPARING FOR A NEW RELATIONSHIP TO THE EARTH

        Encouragement to the wilderness prophetic community to become open to expecting God's "goodness in the land of the living" beyond the sufferings of discipleship as we approach the time of glorification.




      1991
    • SPIRITUAL OSCILLATION

        Amidst the cycles between conflictory beliefs, hopes and leadings of the Holy Spirit comes an exhortation to endurance unto nearing glorified reconciliation between spiritual life's opposing natures and forces.



    • ON WHOSE SIDE IS GOD?

        Insight from the scriptures revealing the inadequacy of moral discernment in appraising God's role behind human events. See how we can be fooled because of the competing spiritual powers operating through the same actions. Contains seed thoughts developed more fully in the The Holy Spirit of Delusion from The Holy Spirit in the Church of Laodicea, and in When Prophecies Cry Wolf.



      An intense look at the unhappy conundrum of serving as a prophetic offense to others while overcoming the challenge of offense in God. Complementary to the Skandalon audio series on divine offense presented by Pastor Ray McCollum.



      Based on the Parable of the Sower, prophetic notes on the eleven elements and growing factors of spiritual seeds. Especially commended to overseas pastors for instructing their flocks in the basics of Christian faith!




      A veritable syllabus on the office and gift of prophecy as outlined in the New Testament. Discusses all the applications of prophecy found in the church in light of the mushrooming prophetic movement. Especially commended to believers new to  understanding the ministry of present tense prophecy.




      See how living faith works toward unity of the body of Christ as it forces us out of the confines of solidified spiritual perspectives to recognize the fullness of Christ in others with differing perspective.




      Originally written as a letter to a church leadership, this second of three articles on Christmas offers a penetrating look at Christmas as a spiritual principality and power in conflict with the prophetic Voice of the Holy Spirit in the church. Proposed solutions for overcoming in the conflict are also presented.



    1992

      Subtitled "How to Avoid Being Trampled in the Great Tribulation," learn how John's temple encounter (Revelation 11) reconciles conflicting beliefs over the presence and role of believers during the time of the very end.



      Find here a careful anatomical look at the relationship between the indwelling life of the Spirit and the veil of natural thought structure and life force out of which the Spirit must break forth in order to effectively minister to others through us.




      A penetrating presentation on the sovereignly elect nature of God's redeemed priesthood contexted inside the human decision process of the first adamic race under the knowledge of good and evil.



      Here we appraise the basic "now-but-not-yet" variables of true kingdom teaching with attention to how those variables become subverted to create false kingdom teaching. A must read primer for understanding the conflict over prophetic movement kingdom teachings as found in our other articles!



      Does God love? If so why do we see Him angry? What does this mean for us who seek to bear Christ's image? Insight into the polarities of God's attitudes and actions toward people as differentiated and advocated across the prophetic body of Christ with a call to embrace Christ's full nature. 




      A prophetic lesson from the priestly bearing of the ark across Jordan that gives us principles for faithfully bearing God's presence into the river of adamic life!



      From which life source will we choose to live our life in Christ? Hear in this devotional the whispering call to a spirit-governed soul. 


      A look into the spirit of exclusivism that develops over later revelation beyond the gospel leading to cults and false gospels based on false claims to "sole heirship" to the first apostles. 



      Is it "fair" for God to elect some to salvation and not others? Was it "fair" for God to create a world with the foreknowledge that most of its inhabitants would end up in hell? This article challenges the unbelief founded upon the human perception of fairness behind these and other inexplicable questions. 



      An introduction to the key concepts and principles by which the Lord metes out His justice in the face of failed prophetic relationship. We learn about the Lord's silent, sifting presence through prophetic relational encounter, the crucial role of forgiving release and secondary reconciliation under the prophetic presence, and the fundamental law of our own words by which His judgment is meted out. (See also the complete Relational Justice Series.) 



      When memory of carnal human fellowship is one day wiped away, and the only standard of relationship is the Knowledge of God, the price of the Lord's ceasing to strive with resistors of His prophetic Word will become apparent. You don't want this to happen to you..... 



    1993

      Does your prophetic heart increasingly struggle year by year agianst the dominant spirit of December?

(For more, see also The Spirit of Christmas and the Prophetic Church.)

    1994

      "Why do the most anointed ministers always seem to be the most shallow in character?

If you have ever struggled to reconcile the inward and outward ministries of the Holy Spirit in your own life and in the church, this exhaustive tell-all biblical and historical study is for you! 



    1995

      When spiritual life cools, the zeal abates and the excitement of ministry fades into the doldrums of the ordinary, do we have what it takes to pass the ultimate test of endurance? (Companion to The Kingdom Within.)

    1998

      A look ahead at issues over which the prophetic church will face internal controversy in the first generation of the new millennium.



    1999

      Proverbial thoughts relating the authority of the inner life over the outer life--concepts to re-center our inside-out grasp of what it truly means to expand the kingdom of God with special attention on the art of engaging vs. relinquishing life issues.
