Clear for Action and Beat to Quarters!!

“Clear for action and beat to quarters!” I liked the movie so much I got the T-Shirt! The movie is ‘Master and Commander’ (2003) and it chronicles the adventures of Captain Jack Aubrey in the Napoleonic naval warfare of the early nineteenth century. The movie begins with the ship, HMS Surprise (28 guns, Crew: 197 souls) off the coast of Brazil 1806 under Admiralty Orders: To Cpt. J. Aubrey, ‘Intercept French Privateer ACHERON en route [...]

Expect A Miracle

Blog by Rob Cresswell. When Jesus was asked by a distraught father if He could heal his tormented son, this was His reply: “ ‘If you can’? said Jesus. ‘Everything is possible for one who believes.’” Mark‬ ‭9:23‬ In other words... “What were you expecting? That this would be yet another failed attempt at healing and that things would just continue to get worse? Everything is possible for those who come expecting a miracle from [...]

Open Letter from Rob & Aliss Cresswell

Dear Friends, Like many others, we've been going through a time of repositioning this year and wanted to let you know about the changes. Here is an overview: A BIT OF HISTORY...

Rock of Ages

I discovered something remarkable about a place we’re travelling to this weekend. Rob and I will be in Somerset, running a two day Supernatural workshop. Patti, our contact there, was struggling to find a venue for us, but eventually booked The Burrington Inn, not far from Bristol. She then discovered that this pub is directly opposite a famous rock in Burrington Combe. It was here at a cleft in the huge rock that the Reverend [...]

Can a Christian have a Demon?

“Can a Christian have a Demon?” is a question that comes up from time to time in our workshops. It’s a good question. The reasoning goes like this: “If I am a Christian it means that I have invited Jesus into my heart, and if Jesus is in my heart by His Holy Spirit abiding in me, then how can I have a demon? The Holy Spirit does not share with demons!!” But to answer [...]

How to see in the spirit realm: A thought

Last week I did my first Facebook Live video and called it #askaliss. I invited anyone to send in a question for me to cover and many of the questions were to do with seeing in the spirit realm. This is such a huge topic, so I decided to use it as the main focus for the time being and answer more specific questions on each programme. I was pleased to see many people watching [...]

Resurrection Power this Easter

As I write this blog, tears are streaming down my face. I remember the time just before we opened our little café in Blacon, Chester. It was ten years ago that we got the keys. I’d been feeling a mix of emotions all that year: of joy and excitement coupled with a holy discontent and hunger for more.
