Simon Manchester described 'the Christian intuitive' as the way each person communicates to others the salvation message of Jesus Christ, or senses spiritual issues and directions.
This 'Christian intuitive' is developed over the years through family, training, personal experiences and our walk with Christ. It becomes part of our character and personality.
'The Christian intuitive' is that we develop a sensitivity to the things of the Spirit of Christ, particularly when with another person, a group of people or when we sense strong discernment with an issue or direction.
It involves inner convictions, such as an 'assurance of direction', 'timing', a 'spiritual rightness of moment', an 'alarm of caution', 'concern', 'watchfulness' …...
You can't pass this on said Simon Manchester. It is unique to you.
Reverend Manchester explained that young Christians should be encouraged to develop 'their intuitive' in the Spirit of Christ as they communicate the saving message of Christ.
'Around The Tables' co-ordinator Well-Being Australia chairman, Mark Tronson, Baptist minister and Australian Cricket Team chaplain said that much of his ministry has been directed by this 'Christian intuitive'.
M V Tronson explained that when he was negotiating with Professional Sports the placement of chaplains, this 'Christian intuitive' kicked in on so many occasions, as to where to lead the conversation at a certain moment in time. It was uncanny, he said, but that he could never explain 'how it worked'.
"It was like an inner conviction, but I just knew, I knew. I simply knew at what moment in time to ask the appropriate question or make the clinching comment. The same applies when I speak with Australian Institute of Sport's young athletes when they visit the Respite facility 'Basil Sellers Moruya', it's remarkable" M V Tronson mused.
The concept of these 'Around the Tables' mission meetings has gone international.
Already, 'Around the Tables' is functioning in India under the leadership of Reverend N David in Bangalore, who attended the 2001 'Around the Tables' in Sydney.
