APOSTLE TALK - Future News Now!
If you would stand on the ocean shore at the edge of a continent and look out at the horizon -
What do you see? What do you think?
How can I get to the other side of the world? How small, infinitesimal and insignificant I am? How limited are my abilities?
Probably the latter will have the most impression upon your mind!
There are certain limits to your abilities. In the last four newsletters we have discussed:
Remove the Barriers
Anointing for Success
If you have not listened to the podcasts yet or read the posts, make sure you do for your present and future success and productivity in the Kingdom of God. In each of these we have attempted to layout a successful plan whereby you can accomplish things:
1. That your mind has never conceived.
2. That people (even yourself) said are impossible.
3. That the enemy (the devil) said, You cannot do this!
Remember, the scripture says, The things that are impossible with men are possible with God. (Luke 18:27)
I am aware by the Spirit of God that I am writing this newsletter to someone - a person or people - who have an IDEA God has given you; however, you either:
1. Do not know HOW to accomplish it (you need wisdom from God); or,
2. You are not POSITIVE the idea came from God.
First, the enemy of your soul will always lie to your mind if have an IDEA, or are working on an idea, to reach people and nations for Christ.
Second, do NOT share your vision with others unless they are people who are involved directly in creative works of God. Read the examples below to encourage you.
EXAMPLE 1 - On one website search of like subject matter, out of over 63,000,000 (that's million) like subjects, we were #1. Also, there were several sites where we were #1 out of tens of thousands. I give ALL the credit to the Holy Spirit!! I turned down every piece of advice I received from media people directly involved with that industry. Some were friends. Some were experts with top credentials and experience in the field.
ASK GOD FOR WISDOM AND DO WHAT HE TELLS YOU!
EXAMPLE 2 - On one project that has reached some of the wealthiest Jews in the world and hundreds of thousands of people for the Messiah of Israel, I was told by a government agency that I could NOT do it: that it violated laws, codes, and restrictions five (5) different ways.
ASK GOD FOR WISDOM AND DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER!
EXAMPLE 3 - On one project the Lord gave me to do which has reached hundreds of thousands, if not millions, for Christ in many languages around the world, I was seeking feedback. I wanted the opinion, or advice, from someone. It was a far out IDEA and so I thought of the most far out person I was acquainted with to see what they thought of the IDEA. The person told me, It is too far out for me! That was my sign the idea was from God.
ASK GOD FOR WISDOM AND DON'T LISTEN TO OTHER PEOPLE!
EXAMPLE 4 - Before I went on one ministry trip, a good close brother in the Lord told me, You are NOT supposed to go on that trip. However, I decided to do what God told me and I went on the trip. By God's grace I reached many for Christ. Jews were saved, and God crossed my path with a person who had information they passed on to me before they died which helped me reach many, many Jews in Israel and around the world!
EXAMPLE 5 - One project the Lord let me be part of - I actually only WATCHED Him put it together - took only one day! All came together in one day: the IDEA, the money, the machines, the methodology, and the people. I really had nothing to do with it except ride round with a lady in a Jaguar and go from step-to-step as the Holy Spirit directed. Tens of thousands of Jews, if not more, around the world (many in Israel), have been reached for Messiah.
One Jewish businessman from Tiberius, Israel, flew all the way to California to meet me. I had an unlisted phone number; I don't know how he found my number. He told me, I will pay anything to meet you. I met him and spent two hours in the Tanach (the Hebrew Old Testament). The Ruach ha Chodesh (the Holy Spirit) opened his spiritual eyes; the man prayed and asked Yeshua ha Meshiach (Jesus the Christ) to come into his life and be his Messiah. I then took him to the airline counter where he immediately booked a flight back to Israel.
ASK GOD FOR WISDOM AND MOVE EXPEDITIOUSLY!
If Christopher Columbus had looked at the horizon from the ocean shore and listened to many others he would never have sailed to the New World 600 years ago.
What is YOUR horizon?
What is that stirring in your heart God has been activating? What is that IDEA the Lord has given you that you feel is humanly impossible?
ASK GOD FOR WISDOM!
