WE ARE SO EXCITED FOR YOUR LIFE BEING TRANSFORMED BY GOD’S LOVE AND POWER!
Origins of the Church and the name Tsidkenu
Hi, my name is Ben, let me tell you how we started! Both Lydia and myself have been leaders in ministry many times and God had already used me to start movements and see His power, but somehow this was very different…
After graduating UCSD, I was called out to bible school in Oklahoma and where I was then was I was about to head back to San Diego after finishing up two years at Rhema Bible college. I was praying in the morning during my normal time when all of a sudden I felt God very clearly call me to start a church (throughout my life I have heard God’s voice many times about big and small life decisions, as I have acted on them and stayed in prayer they ALWAYS are blessed like crazy “my sheep know my voice”).
He said make a house for me and my Holy Spirit to move, and “call My house: Tsidkenu” I said “yes, but what does Tsidkenu mean, is it even a word”?… I had, as I could remember, never heard that word before in my life. So…I started to google how I thought it would be spelled and fortunately google auto-spell pulled it up for me.
“Tsidkenu” is one of the 7 covenant names of God in the Old Testament as in: Jehovah-Rafa, Jehovah-Nissi, Jehovah-Tsidkenu.
As I started to read the scriptures associated with it my heart melted, because it is talking about restoration for God’s people and I have been praying felt called to REVIVAL for years!
God says: “In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell safely; Now this is His name by which He will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Jeremiah 23:6 NKJV
In the Old Testament God gave this name to the children of Israel before He REDEEMED his people from captivity, it was a name of strength and power given for times of victory and the REVIVAL of Israel!
As we have been putting the church together we have been praying and seeking God that He would use this place as a house for His righteousness and a REVIVAL of a move His Holy Spirit for this nation!
Our Goal with this Church or as I understand it God’s goal, is to create a place where people can Encounter the Presence of God and a atmosphere that fosters personal, local and National healing and REVIVAL! Our Only prayer is that God uses it and us for HIS Glory! A place of Rivers in the dessert, a fountain of living Water!
As founders we own businesses for income and this allows us to do ministry free of charge for the chance to watch God impact others with His Life-giving presence in the same we He has impacted and transformed us!!
If you get a chance to come out, God will touch your heart and cause you to be transformed! Only last week, I met this lady for the first time and and I asked why she was here and she said to experience the POWER of God and after the service we prayed for her and she said she hasn’t felt the Holy Spirit that strong since she had been baptized a long, long time ago. We would LOVE to meet you and I pray that God would even more spark a FIRE in your heart for Him, for personal, local and national REVIVAL and for His heart for this Nation and this People. Come on Jesus!!
HUGE AMOUNTS of LOVE!!!:)
Ben and Lydia Wisan!
