Beginning Jan of 2013, the Lord directed me to use Facebook and Social Media on purpose to share His love and life through our family, and our daily Bible readings. We presently use the One Year Bible and it has been much fun, as the Word has come alive again, as He flows through us to meet needs of people around the world! Just for fun, I’m going to add some family pics of some of our missionary trips at the end of this blog.
We pastored in Canada, and have used FB to stay connected with family and former church members, but had around 500 friends.
Now, using this WordPress blog, there are well over 10,000 people that follow us, as we serve as full time missionaries in an organization we pioneered called AOMMinistries, a name taken from Psalm 2:8 – Ask of me, and I will give the nations for and inheritance..
Assignments from the Lord have changed, but His Word is the rock solid foundation upon which we build, and the book Is ALIVE!
Here is what we are working on in 2015: https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2015/05/05/aomministries-2015-master-plan/
It is great to get to know all of you!
I do a lot of the posts, but Karen, and now the children post too. (She usually signs her name, so people know its her.)
There is an amazing truth, that has again amazed me this past year, as we have shared God’s love over social Media.
The Word of God is ALIVE!
Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
As we have shared, and commented, tweeted, posted, and walked in faith, God has opened many doors for us to speak, teach, or simply just pray with people who are needing a touch of heaven.
Truly, the Word of God has gone places over the internet, that I had no idea it would go.
There have been some exciting discussions, that Holy Spirit used to generate some often brutal dialogue around the Word of God. Two of my favorites have been a simple question I posted, that received 80 comments in the first 15 mins: The question was: Should every Christian speak in other tongues?
The article I wrote to answer this question can be read here: https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2014/11/27/is-speaking-in-other-tongues-of-god/
Another, that went viral pretty quick, was my response to gun control. The article was written after a discussion with some Christian retired servicemen, and is pretty strong:
These quips, quotes, and in-depth Bible studies, have now gone around the world, to the point that I see this verse come true in our lives:
Ac 12:24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.
We have gone from being part-owners in two construction companies, to now, full-time missionaries, teaching, writing, and praying for many things each day.
We registered a ministry in 2009, called AOM Ministries, from Ps 2: 8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
We have asked, and God has given us friends and opportunities to minister His Word, in many nations now, and it gets more exciting each day.
In 2013, I completed my first book: Parable of the Sower: A Kingdom Parable.
Was a lot of work, but now I have now published my second book, based on the continued flow of revelation and insight from the Word of God, and my continued Holy Spirit directed studies.
In 2013, I disciplined myself to read 2 books each week, and I learned some things, after I completed the 100 book mark.
In 2014, the Lord gave us an assignment to the Navajo nation, to do what we could to bring reconciliation between the main-line church, the US government and the Navajo nation. This involved a total of 8 trips to Arizona and New Mexico, where many incredible things occurred. You can read about them in my upcoming book – Welcome to the Grand Illusion – A prophetic prayer strategy to take American back.
Now, it is time to apply the knowledge to practical application, and much have what I have learned is so in depth, that only a book can give you the time to read, assimilate, and digest the deeper truths from the Word of God, that I have learned.
I am still passionately in love with Jesus, determined to take His Word, with signs following, to the uttermost parts of the earth!
I have now published over 1000 articles on the blog site, on many, many relevant Christian topics!
There are teaching series on Christian Leadership, Healing, Spirit Led Living, Evangelism, Native American issues, Racism, Our Identity in Christ, Faith and many other topics! Truly, everything we need for life and godliness is in the Word of God!
Today, I saw this post on Twitter, and it prompted me to respond with the series I wrote on ‘Who we are in Christ’
If you want a some more highlights from the blog, check out:
There are many articles in there, designed to answer often tough questions, quickly. Use them however you see fit. I find it easy to simply cut and paste links on various Social Media, rather than recreate the wheel so to speak.
Let continue to walk together in Jesus!
Jesus is Lord!

Give in faith!
1 Corinthians 9:11 If we have sown [the seed of] spiritual good among you, [is it too] much if we reap from your material benefits?
1 Corinthians 9:14 [On the same principle] the Lord directed that those who publish the good news (the Gospel) should live (get their maintenance) by the Gospel.
Paul goes on to say, that he did not use his position as a minister of the gospel to take up offerings, rather he worked, making tents, to support himself. You might notice here, that Paul was not married, nor did he have children. Family responsibilities take time, and just as you bust a move on your job to provide for your family, I work every bit as hard, doing this, faithful to the Lord in prayer and the ministry of His Word, to you.
I will never charge for this: it my responsibility to God, my calling. Freely I have been given, now, I freely give…
As you give, hear Holy Spirit what to give, and honestly expect God to reward you for your giving.
Matt 10: 41 He who receives and welcomes and accepts a prophet because he is a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward, and he who receives and welcomes and accepts a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42 And whoever gives to one of these little ones [in rank or influence] even a cup of cold water because he is My disciple, surely I declare to you, he shall not lose his reward.
I am a five-fold ministry gift and office – this is my life – I pray, I hear, I write, and wonderful things happen. You have your job description, I have mine – this is mine….
I have ‘see through’ faith for you, in this: Gal 3: 9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
I believe I have a responsibility before God to be like Jesus, in every offering I receive. I receive it with thanksgiving, just like Jesus did the little boys lunch.
Then, because I walk and live by faith according to the blessing of Abraham, I believe that God will take your seed sown, and multiply it, according to what the blessing of Abraham promises:
Genesis 22:17 In blessing I will bless you and in multiplying I will multiply your descendants like the stars of the heavens and like the sand on the seashore. And your Seed (Heir) will possess the gate of His enemies
It has been a joy to me, to see the hand of the living God act in the lives of those of you who have supported us this year!
Many have seen tremendous blessing come into your households, and for this we give thanks, and give Jesus all the glory!
