Dear Partner
HAPPY NEW YEAR!  2017 was a year to make that choice to RUN with the Lord, to enter into your field of blessing and begin fulfilling your destiny.  

2018 is already off to a great start and is going to be a year of greater FREEDOM and VICTORY for the believer. 

I keep hearing the Lord say that 2018 is the year of the Kingdom of God2018 is the year that His Kingdom of Love will manifest in greater glory and power in the life of the believer.

As we ended 2017 and stepped over into this New Year the Lord continued delivering a specific Word to us during our Sunday Night Live services here at Freedom Christian Fellowship. 

I want to begin sharing this Word with you.

“Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us, God is love. And he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God and God in him."  (1 John: 4:15-16)

The Word of God says, "And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us."  This is an important statement that John made. 

"We have known and believed the love…."

The word “known” here means; to learn, come to know intimately, to get a knowledge of, to perceive, to feel. 

John came to know Gods’ love so intimately that he could literally feel His love. He just didn’t have a mental knowledge of Gods’ love; he literally experienced His love.

He said, we’ve “known and believed” the love. Through actively experiencing this love, faith was formed in his heart and he believed in this love as well! 

Unfortunately through some Christian circles, the Church has misrepresented Gods love. Through wrong thinking and believing we have demanded ungodly, unscriptural beliefs from the world and from each other. 

We have literally hindered people from coming home, because of how they look, behave or where they come from.   In fact if they haven’t demonstrated that they are like us, then we doubt their value or worth.  

As a result the world is running from the Church, they are running from the family, they are running from God, instead of running to Him. 

We need to be helping the world, and each other know the love of God, so we can believe in Him. We need to love each other unconditionally.  

What you need to hear is;


Listen; even if you haven’t accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you still belong to the family of God.  You have a place in His heart and in the family that He has called you to.  

Jesus died for YOU. You may not know it but God truly loves you and has great plans for your life. I understand how important you are to God, to us, and to the world.   You are loved and valued and you belong to this family.

I don’t care who you are, or what you have done, or what has been done to you, you belong here. 

You are worth every drop of blood that Jesus shed. You are Gods’ child and He spared no expense in rescuing you. You are free to come home! 

This is what the world needs to hear and experience.  Gods’ intense passionate love for you is what compels me, drives me, and motivates me to minster to you His child. 

You see, God set this up in a way where you first experience His love through other people.  That is exactly what Jesus did.  He demonstrated Gods’ love.  He consistently reached out with unconditional love and demonstrated the goodness of God regardless of a persons’ background or sin.

They experienced value, they experienced worth through Him. They experienced Gods’ love and as a result it opened the door for them to believe in Him.

The Word of God tells us “The goodness of God, (His love), leads people to repentance”(Romans 2:4)

That is what John communicated here in 1 John 4:15-16. He put his faith in Jesus Christ, because He KNEW, He EXPERIENCED, that love.

To have faith, to believe, means you trust.  Do you trust God?  Do you trust Love? Or do you trust something or someone else? 

There was a time in my life where I had to make that choice. I was experiencing a time of loss and failure. I was so devastated that I could barely function. One night the pain of this came to a head, and as I laid there looking at my clock, I decided to die, I just wanted the pain to stop.

I remember thinking, “Just curse God and die.” 

At that very defining moment in my life, the Holy Spirit suddenly rose up in my heart, and challenged that thought. 

I literally heard “RORY, I LOVE YOU!”  These Words echoed throughout my heart and soul.   At the very moment of ending my life, I rolled over and said, “I love You Dad.  I trust You.”

Those words literally saved my life.  They gave me a supernatural strength to turn away from death.  They gave me the supernatural comfort to find peace and wisdom in a very dark time in my life.  

What caught my curiosity though was the sound of those words.  I knew God was talking to me, I literally felt His strength and presence, but those spoken words sounded like the voice of my Pastor.

Before this moment in my life, I was a part of a Church family that ministered intensely on the Fathers love for me. I had been through Bible College, and ministry training, and experienced faith victories in my life. Yet I didn’t know or perceive the Fathers love for me. 

I thought I had to perform for Him.  I thought I had to do everything just right in order for Him to accept me and to work through me to reach others. 

My Pastor and his wife, Pastors Dave & Kris Toyne, introduced God as a loving Father to me and it changed my heart. 

For six years He ministered to me. He imparted the Fathers love to me weekly. There were times that I challenged him because he would call God "Daddy", and it irritated me.  God was not a Daddy to me. 

Through his faithfulness, and his relentless effort to minister the Word of God to me personally, he literally introduced me to the heart of the Father. He demonstrated how to have an intimate experiential relationship with Him, and His love. And through the process of time, I also began knowing Him more intimately, and received Him as my Daddy as well. 

That is what Jesus Christ has done for us. He demonstrated and introduced the world to a God of love, a Father, a Daddy, Who passionately and intensely loves us.

Because I knew and experienced His love for me, God used the very words of my Pastor to reach me at my most desperate hour.  You see, who your under shepherd is on this earth is a matter of life and death.  If you are not hearing the message God ordained you to hear, that miracle you need, that healing, that deliverance that provision, will not happen.  (Romans 10:13-17)

Because of hearing that Rhema word, the power of the Holy Spirit was released in me and I was able to rise up in faith that night, turn from that oppressive darkness, and turn towards my loving Father. 

The experience of knowing Gods' love personally, fueled my faith in Him, and empowered me to yield to the presence and help of His Holy Spirit.

I literally rolled away from death, and turned towards His loving arms of embrace. I turned towards His love, His healing, His comfort, and His strength. 

That is what knowing and experiencing His love does. It empowers your faith in Him.  He wants you to experience His love so intensely, that it literally fuels your faith to overcome!

I praise God for the Pastor that God lead me to be under during that time in my life.  Finding your Church family and finding the Pastor God has for you is of eternal importance.

This ministry is fueled by this passionate, experiential, intense love that God has for you.  To know His love, to experience His love saves you, changes you, and empowers you! 

Glory to God!

That is what your partnership assists us in achieving.  Taking JESUS, The Express Word of His Love, and healing the brokenhearted.  You are literally being that prophetic “Voice of Freedom” with us to the world.

Once more, I praise God for you and for your prayerful and financial support with this ministry. If you have any prayer requests, contact us, and I will pray for you.

I will continue to pray Psalm 91, Ephesians 1:13 23 and Ephesians 3:14-21 over you and your family as well. God bless you richly in all things.

Your Partner in Ministry,

Pastor Rory Synoground
