Doug Fortune Ministry"Over the span of nearly 30 years I have been called many things, depending on what type of ministry was needed... apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, teacher. Some of those descriptions of me may be accurate, some may not be, I'll leave that for you to decide. I am most content and fulfilled simply to be a follower of Christ, abandoned to His Grace."

Coming Soon!- Abandon to GraceExcerpts from the book: "Nevertheless, not my will, but Yours, be done." (Luke 22:42) These words roll off the tongue so easily and poetically when read from the safety of mere mental ascent to the concept of "abandonment." However, in reality these words that were uttered with such passion, as sweaty drops of blood fell to the ground, continue to reverberate from that garden impacting all of eternity. The question I must ask is this- Will those words find a place to resonate within me? Can I also say, "Nevertheless, not my will, but Yours, be done? We must understand that ultimately our "control" of circumstances is merely an illusion to begin with. This leads us on to the understanding that, just because "we" are not in control, that does not mean that it is out of control. There is a place of true rest to be found in the sovereignty of our loving Father."
Grace EmbraceGrace is- "God's Radical Ability to Complete Everything!" If Father promised it, if He originated it, He will finish and complete it. "And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ... developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you." (Philippians 1:6 Amplified Bible) We must have FAITH in His promise and His ability to complete what He began! There is much emphasis in the church today on spiritual gifts, signs and wonders, and that is fine to a certain extent. I believe there needs to be a much greater emphasis on the walking out of the grace, hope, love, mercy, and kindness of Christ in everyday life.
Where On Earth Are We Going? For Heaven's Sake!Excerpts from the book: "I believe that we are truly going to impact the earth by moving into this next "dimension" in God, foreshadowed by the Feast of Tabernacles and the Holy of Holies. In this next "dimension" you find that there is really only ONE "dimension." Friend, the next "dimension" in God includes, encompasses and supersedes all previous "dimensions." * "Let us agree, align and advance into His Rest... Let us move from the place of parables to the place of demonstration, with a sent-one mentality... Let's leave old mentalities, take nothing for our journey... And let us depart on this journey preaching the gospel, and healing every where!"
In Earth As In Heaven: Why On Earth Should I Pray?Excerpts from the book: "I guess I was under the impression that God is sovereign, that He holds the destiny of all things in His hands. It appears that He has a purpose and a plan, and He is going to do what He is going to do. If then, this is indeed the case, why on earth should I pray? Yes, Father is indeed sovereign, but in His sovereignty He has entrusted the affairs of the EARTH to US. With this in mind, there is much talk in the Church these days about going to the next level, the next dimension in God in order to impact the earth. If we are going to the next dimension in God, then let's ask the questions, What IS IT and how do we get there?..."
The Power of an Endless LifeExcerpts from the book: "There's a new breed of 'priest' arising in the earth today. "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people..." (1Peter 2:9) We are all called to be priests, not just a select few. This new breed of 'priest' understands CHANGE. This new breed of 'priest' understands that the LAW has changed. No longer is it about 'right and wrong'. Those who feed from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil are concerned with 'right and wrong'. They are concerned with morality. Morality is a poor substitute for righteousness that is based in intimate relationship with the Father through Christ. It's NOT about 'right and wrong', it is all about LIFE and death, it is all about intimate relationship. The Melchizedek 'priesthood' is a people of 'bread and wine', a people of true communion (common UNION) with Christ."
Dawning of the Third DayExcerpts from the book: "Is it the beginning of the end, or the beginning of something new? Something is brewing. Something has changed, and yet it still feels like a 'transition' period. It would appear, by all outward signs, that there is a "darkness" that has encroached upon our world. Yet simultaneously, there is a tremendous feeling of renewed hope, a sense of divine destiny that is rising up. "All this is but the beginning [the early pains] of the birth pangs..." (Matthew 24:8 Amplified Bible) Is this the end, or the beginning?... YES, it is! It is the end of one day, and the beginning of the birth pangs of a new day, the Third Day. Many are sensing the Third Day. Some are talking about the Third Day. A few people are even living the Third Day. I desire to be one of those who truly live the Third Day Life."
Deep Calls To Deep: The Voice of Many WatersExcerpts from the book: "It is the VOICE of many waters, resonating the Sound of heaven, that brings forth LIGHT. It was the VOICE that brought forth Light in Genesis, and it is the VOICE of many waters that brings forth Light to resonate the Throne of God in the earth. "Deep calleth unto deep at the NOISE (voice) of Thy waterspouts: all Thy waves and Thy billows are gone over me." Psalms 42:7 "...His VOICE as the sound of many waters." Revelation 1:15"
Intimacy and Adversity: Footstools of the KingdomExcerpts from the book: "The Father's original and ultimate purpose was and still is, intimate FELLOWSHIP with many Sons in His image and likeness. The Father's ultimate purpose goes far beyond simply our redemption, although that is one important aspect of His plan. His ultimate purpose goes far beyond simply the establishment of His Kingdom upon the earth, although that is another important part of His plan. Let us not be guilty of trying to make a "part" the whole!"
