RECEIVING MIRACLES FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE WORK




DESCRIPTION:

In this show we discuss HOW to receive MIRACLES ... real miracles ... for that impossible work you have been wanting to do: the work that will impact the world. Also, two SPECIFIC messages TO and FOR you from God.



RECEIVING MIRACLES FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE WORK

ALL THINGS THAT JESUS HAS ARE YOURS!   BELIEVE BIG!


"He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of mine and declare it to you."  [John 16:14-15]

Are you having trouble believing for GREAT THINGS - impossible things - in your life and ministry? How big can you THINK? How big can you ASK? Make sure your plans and your goals go BEYOND what you can do. When you enter the realm of impossibility, then you are in God's realm: the realm of MIRACLES. Then, He will have to get the glory!

Don't hesitate to BELIEVE BIG!

"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above ALL that we ASK or THINK, according to the power that works in us . . ."  [Ephesians 3:20]

Go ahead and START that new work for God . . . for His glory!



A MESSAGE IN TONGUES

    Kara ma siko tando.
   
    Karika barundo sandai.
   
    Tama karinda - ra kindi ruko!
   
    Ba ku rando siko!

HERE IS THE INTERPRETATION OF THE ABOVE MESSAGE IN TONGUES

    You have left much, but not all.
   
    Parts were taken, you did not leave them.
   
    I have seen the secret place - which no man knows!
   
    I will reward you!



HERE IS A PROPHECY TO ENCOURAGE YOU IN THAT WORK YOU WANT TO DO

    I FINISHED THE WORK.
   
    I came to be wounded in combat.
   
    I shed my BLOOD and gave My life to HEAL the SEPARATION between God and man.
   
    I defeated the enemy.
   
    I bought you to God with My own blood.
   
    You now belong to God.
   
    You have My Word and the promises in My Word.
   
    You have the Holy Spirit: the Other One Who empowers you and guides you into all truth.
   
    You have resurrection power which assures your success, and even in failure restores you.
   
    You have My Name. Use My Name to vanquish the enemy and to obtain MIRACLES, resources, and joy.
   
    You have the ministry of the Holy Angels to help you and protect you.
   
    FINISH THE WORK I have assigned you: short term and long term.
   
    BE PATIENT.
   
    BE AT PEACE.



AN IMPORTANT ASPECT OF SUCCESS IN YOUR NEW WORK FOR GOD IS THIS:

CONDESCEND TO MEN OF LOW ESTATE


I was in a church one time which consistently does lots of good work to help homeless and disadvantaged people. However, after the service there were three homeless men sitting in the lobby at a table but nobody was talking to them. A friend asked me if I would sit with them and talk to them. I was very glad to do so and had a wonderful conversation with them.

I wonder if lots of times we feel that just because we give money to charities or the homeless or other missions to indigent people that we are doing our duty. I wonder if we are really being a “friend to the friendless.? People like to be recognized . . . and they like to feel accepted. Jesus taught us, “As you would like people to do to you, do exactly so to them.?  [Luke 6:31]

The scripture which contains the words the LORD spoke to me is Romans 12:16: “Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.?  The Greek word used here for “condescend? is the word “sunapago? and means “to take off together,? that is, “transport with.?

One time I was telling a friend, who is an executive pastor of a rapidly growing church, that I have about two inches of letters (not counting all the emails) requesting me to come hold seminars to train pastors and Christian workers and to hold miracle meetings. The other person told me: “You should get to know [name withheld] because he has lots of money.? I thought to myself, “Why in the world do would I want to know someone just because they have money?!?

Take a look at the several Bible versions I have listed below and see their translation and/or paraphrase of Romans 12:16, and what it means to “condescend to men of low estate.?

New Jerusalem Bible:


“Give the same consideration to all others alike. Pay no regard to social standing, but meet humble people on their own terms. [Do not congratulate yourself on your own wisdom.]?

New American Bible:

“Have the same regard for one another, do not be haughty but associate with the lowly; do not be wise in your own estimation.?

Revised English Bible:

“Live in agreement with one another. Do not be proud, but be ready to mix with humble people. Do not keep thinking how wise you are.?

New Revised Standard Version:

“Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty but associate with the lowly. [Do not claim to be wiser than you are.]?

The Living Bible:

“Work happily together. Don’t try to act big. Don’t try to get into the good graces of important people, but enjoy the company of ordinary folks. And don’t think you know it all.?

The Good News Bible:

Have the same concern for everyone. Do not be proud, but accept humble duties [or make friends with humble people]. Do not think of yourselves as wise.?

I searched what different men of God in the past (and others) thought about this passage in Romans 12:16. I have listed them below.

“There is nothing that disrupts harmony as much as seeking glory, when every man detests a base estate, and ambitiously seeks to be exalted.?   [Geneva Bible Notes]

“Be a companion of the humble, and pass through life with as little noise and show as possible.  Let the poor, godly man be your chief companion; and learn from his humility and piety to be humble and godly.  The term “sunapagomenoi,? which we translate condescend, from “sun, together,? and “apagw, to lead,? signifies to be led, carried, or dragged away to prison with another; and points out the state in which the primitive Christians were despised and rejected of men, and often led forth to prison and death.?  [Adam Clarke’s Commentary]

“It does not properly mean to condescend, but denotes a yielding, or being guided and led in the thoughts, feelings, plans, by humble objects. Christians should seek the objects of interest and companionship not among the great, the rich, and the noble, but among the humble and the obscure. They should do it because their Master did it before them; because his friends are most commonly found among those in humble life; because Christianity prompts to benevolence, rather than to a fondness for pride and display; and because of the influence on the mind produced by an attempt to imitate the great, to seek the society of the rich, and to mingle with the scenes of gaiety, folly, and ambition.?  [Albert Barne’s Commentary]

“Sympathize and associate with the poor, humble, afflicted, especially such as suffer for righteousness' sake.?  [Family Bible Notes]

“Desire not riches, honour, or the company of the great.?  [John Wesley]

“Instead of seeking pre-eminence, we are to walk in lowly spirit like our Savior.?   [People’s New Testament Commentary]

"Be carried away with (borne along with) the lowly things" . . . or . . . "with lowly men."   [Robertson’s New Testament Word Pictures]

I trust today we will all reflect on how our LORD would have us to condescend to men of low estate, and pray that we might please Him in doing so . . . continuously.

REMEMBER ... GOD IS FOR YOU

Do not hesitate to BELIEVE BIG!


"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above ALL that we ASK or THINK, according to the power that works in us . . ."  [Ephesians 3:20]

Go ahead and START that new work for God . . . for His glory!

POWER TWINS FOR SUCCESS AND VISION - PART 4: CONCLUSION

____________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION:

In this show we discuss the final three Power Twins for Success and Continued Vision PLUS the capstone … without which you will not be the ultimate winner!

_____________________________________________________________

POWER TWINS FOR SUCCESS AND VISION - PART 4: CONCLUSION

In previous teachings we discussed the FIRST FIVE TWINS for success and continued vision:

Enthusiastic Desire PLUS Faith;

Decisive Nature PLUS Virtue;

Specialized Knowledge PLUS Spiritual Knowledge;

Quest for Excellence PLUS Temperance; and,

Organic Spiritual Endeavor PLUS Patience.

In this teaching we will cover the LAST THREE TWINS:

Principles of Value PLUS Godliness;

Like-minded Associates PLUS Brotherly Kindness; and

Vehicle for Attainment PLUS Love.

When you combine your good desires with faith . . . ENTHUSIASTIC DESIRE PLUS FAITH . . . you have an unbeatable combination. You can begin to PLAN your future prayerfully based upon the God given desires of your heart. That’s one reason it is important to read and meditate upon the Word of God daily so you will KNOW and develop the will of God for your life.

Remember . . . you can CREATE with your faith. Hebrews 11:1 tell us, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.? Faith is the underpinning or support . . . a title deed (as in property) . . . that lets you KNOW you have the objects or affairs you do not yet see.

It is a wonderful thing to have FAITH, but if you have a PLAN incorporating your desires to go along with your faith, it is even better! Here’s a SECRET that will allow you to SEE many MIRACLES:

If your PLAN fits into God’s plan

. . . . . . . you will have God’s FAITH

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . and God’s faith ALWAYS WORKS!

You need to be able to make decisions based upon knowledge and quality input. Once again, this is where it is important to read and meditate upon the Word of God daily. You need DIRECTION in the many matters of life that face you now . . . and also about future planning. God has given you everything you need for LIFE and GODLINESS through His PROMISES and the KNOWLEDGE of Christ.

In ministry and in business you need to draw upon quality research, marketing, and experience (sometimes the input of others). And you need to KNOW when to act. Timing is KEY to success in many courses of action. Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, says that when he knows that something is right, and that the timing is right, he goes into it with MASSIVE ACTION. However, without VIRTUE a decision can have disastrous effects eternally and with no substance temporally here on earth.

The Greek word for VIRTUE in the New testament is arete: it means excellence and valor. We need to be people of EXCELLENCE. Our nature should be to make excellent DECISIONS based upon VIRTUE. If we are following Jesus and listening to the Holy Spirit, we will be able to accomplish this continuously.

“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men. Knowing that of the Lord you shall receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.? [Colossians 3:23-24]

Make your decisions based upon the fact that God is watching you!

We are living in a day like the prophet Daniel described where “knowledge shall be increased? and we should take advantage of that knowledge to advance the kingdom of God. Daniel, in a passage of scripture dealing with the end times, tells us “ . . . but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.? [Daniel 11:32] Exploit, in the sense used here, means literally “to do successively unfolding bold, courageous works!?

There are many ways to influence society and to reach the world for Christ. And there are many NEW ways to help yourself gain SUCCESS! Pray and ask God to reveal these to you. Then, obey Him and be diligent to study in order to prepare yourself to be used by the Master: to be a good steward.

No amount of SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE, however, will be of significant time value without SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE. No matter how successful we become in life, it will not be of any time value unless we know God personally. If we know God through His Son, Jesus the Christ, then we have eternal life. [John 3:16]

When you study the Bible, ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you, and to teach you so you can teach others. The scripture instructs us, “Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.? [2 Timothy 2:15]

Combining SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE with SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE will provide you a powerful impetus for ongoing success and continued vision. To be really successful we need to share our success with others: our family, our brothers and sisters in Christ, our community, and the world.

THE MORE YOU KNOW . . . THE MORE THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN USE! This applies not only to mental knowledge but also to knowledge gained through the acquisition of physical skills or craftsmanship.

Practice excellence in your CHARACTER. Be transparent and keep your word. Psalm 15 is a good start for practical living and developing excellence in character. Also, loving our neighbor as we do our self, and doing unto our neighbor as we would have him do to us, is the guideline our Master set before us.

Practice excellence in your WORK. Be a good steward for your earthly employer and your Heavenly employer. Colossians 3:22 instructs us NOT to do sight-labor: that is, work that needs watching.

In your quest for excellence, develop your skills to the BEST of your ability. Be a good manager of what God has given you and over which God has placed you. Keep improving and growing in your knowledge base, your acumen, and your skills. Study Part ‘A’ of this newsletter to help develop excellence in acumen; particularly study the section on “Decisive Nature and Virtue.?

Along with the quest for excellence you need to partner with temperance, or self control. Many people, on their quest for excellence, do NOT allow for rest or leisure. This is vital to SUCCESS and CONTINUED VISION.

Rest, and also quietness, is necessary for wholeness. A key scripture and principle that I have tried to practice in my life for many years is found in Isaiah 30:15:

“For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: In returning and rest shall you be saved; and in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.?

Leisure is more than just nonwork. It is when we PERMIT ourselves time for rest, growth, and development. Leisure is BOTH the embryo and the catalyst for creativity, and for NEW experiences, people, play, and places.

We have to permit ourselves the time to rest . . . to re-create . . . and to create! Isaiah 58:13-14 tells us about an ADDED BONUS when we honor the Sabbath of the Lord.

“If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on My holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honorable; and shall honor Him, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words:

Then shall you delight yourself in the LORD; and I will cause you to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it.?

To be really successful we need to share our success with others: our family, our brothers and sisters in Christ, our community, the world . . . and Heaven.

We need to have TOTAL success in life: in this life on earth and in the eternal beyond; and God has provided just such means to attain that goal. God has given us EVERYTHING WE NEED for:

LIFE, and

GODLINESS.

“According as His divine power has given unto us ALL THINGS that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that has called us to glory and virtue.?  [2 Peter 1:3]

He has given us PROMISES so that we can share or partner with Him in His divine expansion - or growth of descendants - after we have escaped, by His saving grace, the ruin that is in the world through lust. In other words, after we are born again and start serving Christ, we can partner and be a companion with God in successfully bearing fruit: i.e., growing other seed-descendants. These include our own children who are born again while also reaching out to the rest of the world.

“Whereby are given to us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.? [2 Peter 1:4]

How can we involve ourselves in powerful, prolonged, and productive effort that will be self multiplying and profitable, not only temporally here on Planet Earth but also eternally in Heaven?

The answer: be actively engaged in organic ministry growth! Be involved in a work that is propagating living, continuous development of the Kingdom of God.

The definition of the word propagate is “to breed by natural (or supernatural) processes from a parent origin; to promote an idea or knowledge widely; to transmit in a particular direction.?

There are around 60,000 people groups on Planet Earth, with Christians in most regions of the earth. With the expansion of global trade, internet access, and communications, many - if not most - of these groups understand and view themselves as one worldwide church in an interconnected world. To be involved in Kingdom Work is to be involved with the heart and purpose of God. It is to be involved LOCALLY and GLOBALLY . . . and both TEMPORALLY and ETERNALLY.

The earth is getting smaller with regard to travel, communications, and interfacing of cultures. At the same time the church is becoming more intertribal. We see the horizon of the fulfillment of Jesus’ prophecy that the Good News will be preached, proclaimed, or published before the time of His return.

“And the gospel must first be published [preached] among all nations.?  [Mark 13:10]

The word for nations here used is “ethnos? - as in ethnic group - meaning “a race of the same habit, or culture, or tribe.?

Read and study the Biblical pattern of church growth in the Book of Acts. Certain things are evidentiary and these same patterns are manifest in any POWER GROWTH church today.

1. When people believed in Jesus, and after they were baptized, a group was formed for:

Worship;

Teaching;

Prayer;

Helps; and,

Evangelism.

2. Prophets and teachers were raised up by the Holy Spirit.

3. The Christians prayed and fasted.

4. The Holy Spirit called out apostles.

5. These apostles were sent out (NOT “released?) by the believers after hands were laid on them.

6. As the apostles went to different areas they preached the Good News.

7. Other churches were raised up as a result of the preaching and the work of the apostles.

8. The churches grew and ministered to the believers, the community, and the world.

Notice, in Acts 13:1-4, it was the Holy Spirit who CALLED the apostles (verse 2) and it was the Holy Spirit who SENT them (verse 4). In between the calling and the sending was the ratification by the elders with the laying on of hands (verse 3). The apostles were NOT “released by men? . . . it was the Holy Spirit who called and sent them.

Notice, this is the NORMAL PATTERN of church growth. This is to be expected today! It should be a regular practice of a local church to SEND OUT workers: both for long term commitment and for short term service.

We should always be willing to make changes for the Lord; that is part of discipleship. However; there are times we have to wait . . . because God is developing things or situations where we are going to be sent . . . or because He is developing things in our lives . . . or both!

But if you wait for an EXTENDED period of time, then examine yourself to make sure you are willing to leave your comfort zone. God may be speaking to you and redirecting you, but you may not be listening because it is NOT what you want to hear.

Patience is really cheerful, or hopeful, endurance. True biblical patience, as expressed by the Greek word “hupomone? is constancy. It is the kind of enduring patience, or patient continuance in well doing. It is knowing the will of God for this season of your life, and looking forward to being used by God in SPECIAL SERVICE in the future, also!

Be involved in ministry that is sending out the workers, birthing or planting new churches, preaching and teaching to facilitate the MIRACLE working power of God. Jesus sent out his followers . . . and He is sending YOU out to:

Preach and teach;

Heal the sick;

Cast out demons.

This threefold ministry, or triangulation of mission, will empower you and your ministry; it will keep you FRESH under the anointing of the Spirit. You will be continuously creative, causing you to be more successful and to have continued vision!

Now, if you add to your patience PRINCIPLES OF VALUE and GODLINESS, you will have the spiritual and physical mechanics to add other people, like-minded associates, to your asset bank for success and continued vision.

PRINCIPLES OF VALUE PLUS GODLINESS

One of the great aspects of reading and studying - as well as meditating upon - the Holy Bible daily is so we can learn precepts and principles. We can learn HOW God thinks about certain things and WHY He wants us to behave in a particular manner. Situations vary in life; we may not always come up against situations that have been codified. However, if we know HOW God thinks about certain things and WHY God expects certain responses from us, then we can transfer those principles into every arena of life.

We need to know both the Old Testament and the New Testament so we can navigate successfully through the issues of life and have continued vision. There is an association between the Law of God and vision from the Lord.

“The law is no more; her prophets also find no vision from the Lord.?  [Lamentations 2:9]

“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he.?  [Proverbs 29:18]

It is the same way in our personal lives and ministries. If we adhere to the teachings of God; that is, live by the principles we learn about HOW God thinks and WHY He expects certain behavior, then we will not only have SUCCESS but also continued VISION.

Actually the combined traits of PRINCIPLES OF VALUE and GODLINESS will be concomitant factors. Here again is the key: knowing and obeying the Word of God, which is His Will!

LIKE-MINDED ASSOCIATES PLUS BROTHERLY KINDNESS

You need to have strong relationships with God and with those people to whom God will lead you to work. Appreciate the people with which God has chosen you to work. However, don’t try to “force? relationships: don’t make commitments to every person you meet. God will show you those people to whom you should be committed when you are FIRST committed to Him!

Give positive support, or “reinforcement? to those people you’re committed to …

• Whether they are OVER YOU in a position of authority;

• You are OVER THEM; or,

• You are on the same level (working or ministry associates).

Remind each other that “God will fight for us!?. Give your associates REWARDS from time-to-time for:

• The good work they do;

• Their consistency and faithfulness; or,

• Their availability.

These rewards do not (always) have to be monetary. Sometimes a “pat on the back?, or a “word of encouragement?, is really meaningful: letting them know the good they are doing is not going unnoticed. Let people KNOW you are THANKFUL and APPRECIATIVE of their association with you.

Maybe an invitation to dinner, or just spending time alone with them or their family, whether it’s a few minutes or a day or two. It is also important for a man to give positive support to his wife. There are so many ways a wife serves a husband in his ministry that may go unnoticed by him.

Simple brotherly kindness to and among your group will go a long way to impacting the world with Christ’s love and power! This is the purpose of The Apostles Group and the reason we write this newsletter and provide our world services free.

We need to appreciate those nearest to us, and never to take them for granted. This is where “family altar? is so important: don’t neglect ministering to your own family! They may be your GREATEST DISCIPLES!! Read and discuss the Holy Bible together, and then pray together.

It is good to spend time refreshing your mind thinking about all the successes God has given you in the past. God has NOT brought you this far to make you fail. God is FOR you! One time the disciples of Jesus were in a ship in the middle of the sea where the waves were rough and the wind was strong. They became fearful until Jesus came to them on the water and told them not to be afraid. They FORGOT that the Lord had commanded them to GO to the other side.

He did NOT intend them to sink or to fail. Jesus intends for you to SUCCEED! Take time to study in the Holy Bible how others have succeeded: Abraham, Joseph, Daniel, Esther, Mordecai … and the Apostles.

Associate with like-minded people who SHARE YOUR VISION (or who know what you’re about) . . . people who are POSITIVE. You want to be able to brainstorm with these people, and not to have ideas - no matter how ridiculous - be shot down as soon as they are verbalized.


IMPORTANT:

This group of like-minded people with whom you will share your vision, goals, and new ideas, is NOT an accountability group. This is NOT a group of people to whom you decide to be accountable for your personal life, your ministry, or your finances. This is a group of people with whom you need to have OPENNESS for CREATIVITY:

• To dream;

• To plan;

• To get feedback; and,

• To implement.



We have seen that when we add to our patience the twin gifts of GODLINESS and PRINCIPLES OF VALUE, we will have the spiritual and physical mechanics to add other people, LIKE-MINDED ASSOCIATES, to our asset bank for success and continued vision. Next . . . you can select your VEHICLE FOR ATTAINMENT.

VEHICLE FOR ATTAINMENT PLUS LOVE

What is the means by which you will arrive at your goal? What is the vehicle which will transport you to the attainment of your dream?

When an athlete in a championship game scores the winning goal, he is merely manifesting a composite of the years of training, wins and losses, experience, exercise, and mental conditioning that have preceded this moment. Likewise, the composite of major decisions in our lives are usually the summation of the smaller minor decisions and habit-patterns we have formed along the way.

To some people, the vehicle for attainment of their goals is a multilevel marketing plan. To others, it is a business and investment plan. To many, it is a retirement plan. To the ULTIMATE WINNER, it is the vision and the miraculous arrived at through seeking God in prayer and fasting: combining ENTHUSIASTIC DESIRE and FAITH with DIRECTION from God.

God will reveal YOUR vehicle for attainment as you spend time alone with Him. Shut off your television and your video / DVD player . . . spend time with the Creator of the Universe. Talk to Him . . . listen to Him. God is NOT stupid. The Heavenly Father knows the person who wants to be used by Him . . . the person who wants to spend time with Him.

The Creator will reveal by His Spirit the vehicle for you to use in the attainment of your goal(s) . . . and when to CHANGE that vehicle. God, the creator of the goal-desires in your heart, knows the methodology by which to bring them to pass. He knows the vehicle by which, when coupled with FAITH, will bring the goal-desires into fruition.

There is an amazing spiritual truth we find in Genesis 11:1-9. Before the nations of the earth were scattered on the face of the earth, the earth was of one language and one speech. The people had decided to make a city and a tower, whose top would reach unto heaven; they wanted to make a name for themselves so they would not be scattered abroad upon the face of the earth.

“And the Lord said, ‘Behold, the people is one, and they all have one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.? [verse 6]
“Let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.?  [verse 7]

Archaeological records show us that these were wicked and idolatrous people. Yet we see in verse 6 that God said, “nothing will be restrained from them?. Notice they had ONE goal and ONE speech. They were unified in purpose and language.

If this principle of “oneness? works in unbelievers … for ungodly, wicked people … how much more will it work for believers … for God’s people … who have ONE goal and ONE speech: a common vision and a common language! Especially spirit-filled Christians who have a common objective and who can pray and decree a thing (or a set of objectives) in not only their common earthly language(s),but also their heavenly language: tongues!

In Job 22:28 we read, “You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto you …? In the original Hebrew language the word “decree? is a primitive root form of the word “gazar?, which means “to cut out exclusively, or to decide?. In its primitive form it is used also as a “quarrying? term … as in cutting out stone from a rock quarry.

It means more than to “say? or “speak?. It conveys the meaning of “cutting something out in your mind’s eye?; that is, “to envision [to make a vision], to decide upon it, and confess it? … and then it will be established unto you! If you and your Christian brothers and sisters have a common vision or goal, and decide upon it, confessing it in a common language, speaking it … “nothing will be restrained from you which you have imagined (or, envisioned) to do!!  [Read again Genesis 11:1-6.]

The SECRET . . . the capstone to the whole process . . . without which you will not be the ULTIMATE WINNER . . . is LOVE.

The vehicle for attainment of your goals, no matter how intense your desire, your faith and the other twins we have studied, cannot bring you into success and continued vision without LOVE. Love is the channel through which the gifts of the Holy Spirit work. “Faith works by love.?  [Galatians 5:6]

Remember … if you have LOVE, then FAITH can work.

It is a wonderful thing to have FAITH, but if you have a PLAN incorporating your desires to go along with your faith, it is even better! Here’s a SECRET that will allow you to SEE many MIRACLES:

If your PLAN fits into God’s plan

. . . . . you will have God’s FAITH

. . . . . . . . . . and God’s faith ALWAYS WORKS!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . it is anointed with LOVE!

I trust this series on “The Eight Power Twins for Success and Continued Vision? has been a blessing to you, and that it will help you accomplish your God-given desires!

POWER TWINS FOR SUCCESS AND VISION - PART 3

____________________________________________________________


DESCRIPTION:

How to receive the fifth pair of Power Twins for success and vision, Organic Spiritual Endeavor PLUS Patience, and how to use this Power Twin to enable us to share our success with others. Also, how to be involved in a work that is propagating living, continuous development of the Kingdom of God.

_____________________________________________________________


POWER TWINS FOR SUCCESS AND VISION - PART 3

In the previous two teachings we discussed the FIRST FOUR TWINS for success and continued vision:

        Enthusiastic Desire PLUS Faith;

        Decisive Nature PLUS Virtue;

        Specialized Knowledge PLUS Spiritual Knowledge; and,

        Quest for Excellence PLUS Temperance.

In this newsletter we will discuss the fifth twin:

        Organic Spiritual Endeavor PLUS Patience

The remaining twins for success and continued vision will be discussed in subsequent newsletters.

ORGANIC SPIRITUAL ENDEAVOR PLUS PATIENCE

To be really successful we need to share our success with others: our family, our brothers and sisters in Christ, our community, the world . . . and Heaven. We need to have TOTAL success in life: in this life on earth and in the eternal beyond; and God has provided just such means to attain that goal. God has given us EVERYTHING WE NEED for:

         LIFE, and

        GODLINESS.

"According as His divine power has given unto us ALL THINGS that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that has called us to glory and virtue." [2 Peter 1:3]

He has given us PROMISES so that we can share or partner with Him in His divine expansion - or growth of descendants - after we have escaped, by His saving grace, the ruin that is in the world through lust. In other words, after we are born again and start serving Christ, we can partner and be a companion with God in successfully bearing fruit: that is, growing other seed-descendants. These include our own children who are born again while also reaching out to the rest of the world.

"Whereby are given to us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust." [2 Peter 1:4]

Now . . . how do we use the precepts we have learned in the previous two newsletters so as to be involved in ORGANIC SPIRITUAL ENDEAVOR? In other words, how can we involve ourselves in powerful, prolonged, and productive effort that will be self multiplying and profitable, not only temporally here on Planet Earth but also eternally in Heaven?

The answer: be actively engaged in organic ministry growth! Be involved in a work that is propagating living, continuous development of the Kingdom of God.

The definition of the word propagate is "to breed by natural (or supernatural) processes from a parent origin; to promote an idea or knowledge widely; to transmit in a particular direction."

My purpose in this section is to tell you the SPECIFICS of how to accomplish this.

There are around 60,000 people groups on Planet Earth, with Christians in most regions of the earth. With the expansion of global trade, internet access, and communications, many - if not most - of these groups understand and view themselves as one worldwide church in an interconnected world. To be involved in Kingdom Work is to be involved with the heart and purpose of God. It is to be involved LOCALLY and GLOBALLY . . . and both TEMPORALLY and ETERNALLY.

The earth is getting smaller with regard to travel, communications, and interfacing of cultures. At the same time the church is becoming more intertribal. We see the horizon of the fulfillment of Jesus' prophecy that the Good News will be preached, proclaimed, or published before the time of His return.

"And the gospel must first be published [preached] among all nations." [Mark 13:10]

The word for nations here used is "ethnos" - as in ethnic group - meaning "a race of the same habit, or culture, or tribe."

Read and study the Biblical pattern of church growth in the Book of Acts. Certain things are evidentiary and these same patterns are manifest in any POWER GROWTH church today.

1. When people believed in Jesus, and after they were baptized, a group was formed for:

        Worship;

        Teaching;

        Prayer;

        Helps; and,

        Evangelism.

2. Prophets and teachers were raised up by the Holy Spirit.

3. The Christians prayed and fasted.

4. The Holy Spirit called out apostles.

5. These apostles were sent out (NOT "released") by the believers after hands were laid on them.

6. As the apostles went to different areas they preached the Good News.

7. Other churches were raised up as a result of the preaching and the work of the apostles.

8. The churches grew and ministered to the believers, the community, and the world.

Notice, this is the NORMAL PATTERN of church growth. This is to be expected today! It should be a regular practice of a local church to SEND OUT workers: both for long term commitment and for short term service.

Notice, in Acts 13:1-4, it was the Holy Spirit who CALLED the apostles (verse 2) and it was the Holy Spirit who SENT them (verse 4). In between the calling and the sending was the ratification by the elders with the laying on of hands (verse 3). The apostles were NOT “released by men? . . . it was the Holy Spirit who called and sent them.

WARNING #1:

It is not enough just to see new churches being raised up. This is where many POWER CHURCHES become deceived into complacency and become spiritually diffused. There are two (2) main causes for this effect:

1. They see many new churches being raised up, but begin to lack clarity or conciseness of mission or vision. Over time they become spread out and increased in numbers but diffused in power. Sometimes this is because of pride, or due to comparing themselves with other regional churches. Sometimes it is because of lack of sacrifice they were willing to render at their outset.

2. They do NOT bring NEW POWERFUL LIFE back into their parent body.

This can be prevented and offset by sending out short term mission groups for a period of three to six weeks. These groups may go to a nearby region or they may go far away overseas to another country. They may combine evangelism, medical, and help ministries. They may go to un evangelized territories, or they may go to assist those who have previously been sent out by the parent church; or they may go assist missionaries and Christian workers from other church groups.

This will result in a TRIPLE blessing: 1. It will inject LIFE back into the parent church when they return from their short term ministry and share their testimonies; 2. it will also inject LIFE into the area where they are sent; and, 3. it will inject LIFE into the ones sent, influencing their future discipleship for the Lord.

WARNING #2:

It is of great spiritual detriment for the new churches - or individuals - being raised up to feel, or be instructed, that they are UNDER THE COVERING of the parent church.

1. They may be accountable to the parent church, or other bodies, but their covering is CHRIST AND HIS BLOOD ... NOT men or the church! To teach otherwise is to cause them to lean on men and not the Lord, and to become disciples of men and not Christ! This is one of Satan's tricks to quench TRUE evangelistic and prophetic ministry, and to lure them into a false sense of safety or covering.

2. This teaching will usually be prevalent where potential candidates for ministry or the mission field are taught that they are not ready to be "released" from the parent body. To be "released" is implying that they are being held in "bondage." "Who the Son sets FREE is free indeed . . . absolutely!" [John 8:36] They may not be ready to be sent out, but they surely should not be held in bondage, nor have that thought implied.

"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty!"
[2 Corinthians 3:17]

Be part of an organic church growth . . . or organic ministry growth. Not indirectly . . . but DIRECTLY. It is often said, "If you can't go in person, then go by your prayers . . . or go with your money." Surely we can share by any of the three means: going, praying, and giving. But be involved in ALL THREE. Now, if you are elderly, or constrained in some way that you can't go yourself, the Lord understands. But be involved as much as you can: for your sake, for your church and ministry's sake, and for the sake of those to whom you could or should be ministering.

If you are very busy in your business, ministry, or family life, try to set aside vacation time to go on a ministry trip overseas or to some area in great need. If you are in a geographic area where there are no power churches or ministries, then pray for the Lord's direction. He may want you to START such a ministry. There are lots of good ministry groups who need help. You can contact them on the internet.

If you can, let your family be involved with you. Young children should not go to some areas because of sanitation, dehydration, and other risks. There is a great need in many countries for water and for wells to be drilled. There is a big need in many areas for other helps such as medical missions. Whatever you do, combine it with preaching the Good News. Some groups do lots of social work but never share the Gospel. Others do lots of evangelism but never help meet needs of the local people. Do both!

Be involved in ministry that is sending out the workers, birthing or planting new churches, preaching and teaching to facilitate the MIRACLE working power of God. You may be a business person that God has anointed to help reach the world for Christ; but minister personally, as well as trough your business. It will keep you creative, and help you to be even more successful while maintaining continued vision. The anointing will keep you vibrant! Jesus sent out his followers -- and He is sending YOU out -- to:

        Preach and teach;

        Heal the sick;

        Cast out demons.

This threefold ministry, or triangulation of mission, will empower you and your ministry; it will keep you FRESH under the anointing of the Spirit so that you will SEE and EXPERIENCE MIRACLES ... real miracles for the glory of God. You will be continuously creative, causing you to be more successful and to have continued vision! These things began Jesus both to DO and to TEACH . . . and these things He would have us to DO and to TEACH! [Acts 1:1]

Most of the people reading this newsletter are already in ministry or thinking and praying about it. My advice to you is this: "Go big or stay at home!" In other words, don't make ministry a hobby or an avocation. Your whole life should center around God's will for you. Or rather, your whole life should be in the CENTER of God's will. If not, start praying to that end.

We should always be willing to make changes for the Lord; that is part of discipleship. However; there are times we have to wait . . . because God is developing things or situations where we are going to be sent . . . or because He is developing things in our lives . . . or both!

Patience is really cheerful, or hopeful, endurance. True biblical patience, as expressed by the Greek word "hupomone" is constancy. It is the kind of enduring patience, or patient continuance in well doing. It is knowing the will of God for this season of your life, and looking forward to being used by God in SPECIAL SERVICE in the future, also!
