How the new, “Spirit to Spirit” CD songs came into being!

Ted Evans - Spirit to Spirit

Preparing for Spirit to Spirit - the creative geniuses!!!

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be ministering and pastoring in a dusty, dry, industrial town like Whyalla, South Australia!

The church had been through some difficult times over the years and was hurting.
I was devastated from a broken marriage but supernaturally God brought Whyalla and myself together.  What an unusual but divine connection!

In the coming months and years, God was going to birth some heartfelt, moving and anointed songs.  These songs were not to be complicated in anyway nor were they musical master pieces.  These songs were, in nature, coming from brokenness and reliance on God for every ounce of breath.

These times were survival for me.  I had nothing but the Holy Spirit.

It was like the Lord brought me to a desert place to usher in a new day of revelation and refreshing.  He literally breathed life into my dead bones.  At times I was gasping for reason to live but I found solace in “The Battle Belongs to the Lord”.

What do you do when you’ve got nothing?

Firstly you better have a walk with God, a relationship with Jesus.

You need know how and be willing to learn to trust in God’s healing, mercy and grace.

I commenced Monday night “City Worship” – a one hour of devotional worship – very soon after I arrived in Whyalla.  At times during these evenings we touched incredible depths in worship.  It was in those intimate moments when all eyes were closed and in freedom we began to sing in the spirit.  It was those times that the Lord gave me songs like “Living Waters Flow”, “Surrounded by Your Glory”, “My House Shall be a House of Prayer”, “Holy Spirit, Please Come”, “Spirit to Spirit”, “All of my Days” and “You Came” just to name a few.

The CD consists of ten songs of the Spirit straight from these beautiful engagements with the Holy Spirit.

My heart is that you will be blessed and encouraged, built up and strengthened on your journey no matter what you are facing.  Many people are hurting but the great restorer is available as you reach out to Him, remembering that God is attracted to brokenness.  He is the potter and we are the clay.

Stay tuned for details for the release of this moving and spiritual project with a heart to minister, “Spirit to Spirit”.

Ps Ted EvansEvery year the church prepares and gets ready for some of the best meetings, best ministry, best crowds and outreach and in gathering of souls for Christ that they have seen all year.

It’s Easter time, with hot cross buns – one a penny, two a penny, hot cross buns. Easter eggs for the kids and sometimes the parents, but most of all Easter is not about the name “Easter.”  It’s not about the commercial aspects.  It’s not about the particular day because we all know that Easter Friday and Resurrection Sunday is debatable and in fact is not necessarily the correct days that the event of Jesus’ death and resurrection took place.

It’s not about any of those things.  It’s about a person and His name is Jesus. You may call Him Yahweh, Yeshua. You may call Him Emmanuel, El Shaddai, Lord, Jehovah and all these names are His name, but I call Him Jesus, the Son of God, Prince of Peace. Counsellor, wonderful! Jesus said “I AM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE” no man comes to the Father except through me! (John 14:6) “I AM the bread of Life “John 6:35, Exodus 3:14 “I AM WHO I AM….”in other words: The self existent one, just and true, loving and faithful.  I AM, HAS SENT ME TO YOU!

It just so happens that we as Christians have land marked the April long week as the time we acknowledge and celebrate Christ’s death and burial at the time that has been allocated down the years. We have communion every time we meet to also keep in step with God’s word.

I believe as Christians we should celebrate God and His goodness as much as possible.  He is good.  He is faithful.  He is just and He is full of grace and mercy. Whether you believe or don’t believe, it’s not up for debate.  He is!  As the old song says, “As the bible tells me so.”  Christians do Christian things and they don’t take away from Christ, they promote, and endeavour to make Him known throughout the world.  That is our mandate… “To go and be witnesses in all the earth!”

The enemy would want us to take our eyes off Jesus, distract us from seeing and celebrating His goodness.  The enemy of our soul doesn’t want us to spend a weekend of festivities being reminded of the work of the cross.

We celebrate, The Day of Atonement, Pentecost, First Fruits and the land marks and memorials of the Christian faith.  Easter is just another point or memorial that every Christian puts in their calendar to remember Jesus.  It’s all about Jesus, His love, His compassion, and His forgiveness.

Let me encourage you not to get caught by the weekend, the days whether they are in correct order or not, the name’s this and that… Focus on Jesus this coming Easter and let’s never stop focusing on Him.  As a pastor, it’s the only time many unchurched people enter the doors of our churches.  Invite them in with welcome arms and show them the Love of God.
