How it All
Began With Us!
Tessie's Intercessory Letter
Writes David P Griffiths: I remember fondly my Uncle Ted and Auntie Tessie visiting our house at 3, Roosevelt Drive, Aintree, Liverpool in the 1950's and 60's. I was surrounded by holiness people, not realising what affect that was to have on me in later life, for God many years later gave me a word to return to mission hall days, and recognize the great harm to the Church the charismatic movement (after David Watson and John Wimber) had done. Thus our intercession began. I was not alive when my dad William Griffiths attended the once great Keswick Convention in the 1930's. He responded to the missions call. He had cycled as a poor man from Netherfield Road, Liverpool to attend.
Miracle after miracle followed with dad being trained by Rees Howells for the missions field. He learnt fluent Portuguese and departed by ship in 1936 for Cape Verde and Guinea Bissau as part of a WEC team of Clifford Gay and Lesley Fricker.
One of the miracles was related to clearly hearing the voice of the living God - "go and join the queue at Lime Street Station Liverpool to buy your ticket for Swansea." Dad had no money, simply an obedience to the call - and true enough a fellow saint responded to the call of God, tapped Dad on his shoulder in the queue with the money for Swansea. Such living by faith was common in those days, and it is this God called us to restore in the restoration of the Bible College in the very area in Scotland Rees Howells received the original vision at Anwoth, Dumfries & Galloway.
My dad in later life having visited Samuel Rees Howells at the Bible College in Swansea.
Will you come and join us in this cause to restore the "inner witness" to the Church, to "perfect saints for the work of the ministry," to go forward all over the world to preach the Gospel? The key to all this = "intercession" and the following letter from Tessie to her brother sums up the whole heart of our ministry, the ministry of Rees Howells, and what has taken us, the restoration of the Bible College all over the world - having to rely on the financial miracles to take place today, in an apostate nation so the mission call can be achieved.
At a time when movement after movement has been taken away from the people of God -
here we have in Whithorn - the original intercessory heart of the Bible College of Wales
Message through Brian Mason, trained for intercession through
Samuel Rees Howells in the 1970's.
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 2:5
Father God Your Word could not be clearer in showing that there is only one mediator between You and men, the man Christ Jesus Your only begotten Son.
What happens though is that barriers are placed in the way as ministries through their leaders and Deliverance Ministry, False Apostles and False Prophets and churches through a system of Pope, a separate Priesthood, Virgin Mary, Saints, Altar Rails and a Confessional ,that both Ministries and Churches seek to block direct access to Yourself through Jesus by making out that You are a distant God only accessible through certain privileged ones.
Father this is caused by a lack of understanding Positional Truth. When those who have come to know You as Father through repentance of their sin and received a pardon through the cleansing blood of Jesus then communication with Yourself has been opened through Jesus.
Father send a revelation of the truth of Your Word. Your word shows that when Jesus’ Life becomes the believer’s life then it will be accepted that there is a union between the two rather than the teaching of ministries and churches which look to keep those under their control as far away from knowing You as possible as the Living God indwelling the believer through Jesus.
What revelation, what joy, what Life when we see and know that we are living stones who make up the Church of the body of Christ for those who know that they are in Christ are part of the Royal Priesthood of believers who have the Living Christ indwelling them by His Spirit giving them direct access to the Father. This prayer Father is for Your Glory alone for it is asked in the name of Jesus. Amen.
