We are a people spread across the world with a passion for helping others see Jesus as love, and to see themselves through God's eyes of love.
Blue Flame 47 is an international ministry that rests on the foundation of Jesus Christ, and whose focus is God's will done, His way, in daily portions.
We are a people spread throughout the world who are dedicated to helping others pursue a deeper relationship with God, so they might see not only who God is, but to see themselves through God's eyes. The ministry was founded in May 2010 by Scott and Shari Norvell using the teachings of their respective books, "Terraforming For the Kingdom," (also known as Terra4ming) and "Cessor Journeys".
We are headquartered at Arubbah in southern Tulsa County of the State of Oklahoma, USA. Here we gather weekly to worship, share and fellowship; monthly to worship and touch the heart of God; and biannually to gather our family from around the world. We have been commissioned by our Father in heaven to prepare the bride by traveling internationally to train and equip the saints with the Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven that Jesus is releasing to this generation of His church.
On December 31, 2013 God fulfilled a vision that He gave us years ago of land that we would call home. He told us that there would be trees, grassland, and a river running through it. All of these came together when we found Arubbah, a stretch of approximately 310 acres (125 hectares) in southern Tulsa County of the State of Oklahoma, USA. This is the land where our hearts are, and where we have experienced the presence of God in a very unique and incredible way. God has lead us to construct a building in the northwest corner of the property, where we can gather for meetings, and for administrative offices, fellowship and expressions of the ministry such as prayer appointments and ICU.
The word "Arubbah" comes from Hebrew and means "floodgate" or the "window of heaven." It is a reference to Malachi 3:10 in the bible that tells us to "'Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,' says the Lord Almighty, 'and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven [Arubbah] and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."
Cessor is a term coined by one of our daughters (then four years old) when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up. Her answer was that she wanted to be a cessor (having heard the word intercessor) and pray about everything.
Prayer is a covenant we are invited into. When we enter in, we begin to walk in an inheritance greater than we have known or imagined. We begin to fulfill our destiny on earth and through us, the supernatural solutions of Heaven are released. Cessors is an invitation to take a risk and dive into the adventure of what prayer was always meant to be through praying covenant and not condition, harvesting in your field, releasing what God is thinking, thwarting the plans of the enemy and walking where there is no off switch in the Presence of God. To learn more about prayer that changes everything, check out the Cessor Journeys audio in the Media section or Cessor Journeys the book in the store.
Terraforming is a word used by NASA to describe changing atmospheres from ones that are hostile to the human race, to ones that are hospitable. God has shown us an application of this word that describes how his maturing bride is given the authority to change the spiritual atmosphere of creation from one that is hostile to love (deception, coercion, manipulation) to one that is hospitable (freewill to choose). We pray over people (physical & emotional healing, traumatic stress recovery, generational cleansing, deliverance), places (the land, our homes, church / school / work, our cities, our nations), and things (our food, clothes, jewelry, furniture, cars, home / church / school / work, hotel rooms, and national monuments) with one set of keys to see the power of deception / coercion / manipulation dismantled so people can freely choose again.
In early 2007, God invited Scott and Shari Norvell to give up their lives receiving paychecks through the corporate world, and into a life of trusting in Him for everything. Scott's last day in banking was May 11th of that year. Within a month, God began revealing keys for how to pray for people who were suffering with physical and emotional torments, through forgiveness with the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. Over the years, this revelation has grown to stand upon an ever deepening relationship with God from servants who believe in Jesus, to friends who converse with God, to children that depend upon Him for everything, to a maturing bride that dies to selfishness, and is resurrected to covenant destiny each day.
When Scott and Shari married, an adventure began and it hasn't stopped. From a mountain top in Colorado to the green hills of Oklahoma, their destination has been the same, the Kingdom.
In 2006, Scott and Shari Norvell became involved with healing ministries and were pierced with the vision to unite people through love. In 2010, they founded Blue Flame 47 and have been igniting teams to redeem creation - which includes people, cities, regions, nations, business, government, family and every place where these dwell.
All of creation groans and the sons and daughters of God are responding! Scott, Shari, their children, grandchildren, dogs, and horses live in Bixby, Tulsa County, Oklahoma, USA.
Everyday is full of fruit, if you are willing to live out on a limb!!
