APOSTLE TALK - Future News Now!

MIRACLES WILL FOLLOW YOU
Apostleship did NOT end with the early apostles.
Miracles - real miracles - did NOT end with the early apostles.
Three (3) precepts are necessary to enable you to have an apostolic MIRACLE ministry.
MIRACLES WILL FOLLOW YOU
You are NOT going to reach many “New Age? people without MIRACLES ...
You are NOT going to reach many Jewish people without MIRACLES ...
You are NOT going to reach many Muslims without MIRACLES!
Jesus said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature ... And these signs shall FOLLOW them that believe ...? [Mark 16:15-18]
“And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs FOLLOWING.? [Mark 16:20]
“The Jews seek (require) a sign.? [1 Corinthians 1:22]
“For I am the LORD; I change NOT ...? [Malachi 3:6]
“Jesus Christ, the SAME: yesterday, and today, and forever.? [Hebrews 13:8]
I am writing this newsletter to BOTH those who believe in MIRACLES and those who do not believe in miracles.
God never intended for us to be impotent representatives of the Kingdom of God. He has NEVER changed His plan of salvation and never will. “I am the LORD; I change not.? [Malachi 3:6] Are you afraid that God will not come through for you the next time you pray for a sick friend? Pray anyway! Are you concerned about who will get the blame if the prayer is not answered? Will it be God’s fault ... or will it be your fault ... or will it be the sick person’s fault?
There are THREE (3) precepts necessary to enable you to have a more productive healing ministry. They are very simple and not only will you be a greater blessing to many on earth but eternity will manifest the extreme fruit of your compassion. We will discuss these precepts below.
The FIRST precept is that you BELIEVE.
“If you can BELIEVE; all things are possible if you believe.? [Mark 9:23] Another translation of this verse is: “If you can? BELIEVE! All things are possible if you believe.? (Read the context.) “All things whatsoever you shall ask in my name BELIEVING, you shall receive.? To help you BELIEVE, study scriptures on healing. Find a concordance and read all the Bible verses on healing, heal, healed, etc. Also, for a short scripture by scripture presentation on healing, go to: http://www.realmiracles.com/mthe.htm You may want to memorize these scriptures.
Also, go to the website www.realmiracles.com and select “HEALTH? on the blue navigation bars at the left of any page. This is from the 32 page booklet written and copyrighted by Apostle Handley titled How To Be Healed. It covers:
Different avenues of healing;
How to receive healing;
How to be an instrument of healing for others; and,
Hindrances to healing (different reasons why people are not healed).
If your HEART is right before God ... and if you have the DESIRE ... you can become a MIRACLE WORKING bearer of the Good News! “What things soever you DESIRE, when you PRAY, BELIEVE that you RECEIVE them; and YOU SHALL HAVE THEM.? [Mark 11:24]
“And ALL things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, BELIEVING, you shall receive.? [Matthew 21:22] Stop being concerned about HOW MUCH faith you have. If you only have faith the size of a small seed ... just USE IT. Loose that faith in the NAME of JESUS ... “Whatever you ask the Father in my name, He will give it to you ... ask, and you shall receive ...? [John 16:23-24]
The SECOND precept is that you are COMMISSIONED.
“You go therefore, and teach ALL nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe ALL things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, remember, I am with you ALWAYS unto the end of the world.? [Matthew 28:19-20]
This commission was given to the apostles with the mandate that they were to “teach them [the ones they were discipling and training] ALL things whatsoever I have commanded you.? The phrase “all things? includes, of course, the commissioning or sending out of other workers and apostles.
Mark 13:10 tells us “This Good News of the kingdom will be preached in ALL the earth, and then will the end come.? That commission is ongoing until the “end of the age, or world? and the Kingdom of Heaven is continually being perpetuated like yeast used in sourdough bread or added bacteria used in starting yogurt, only with GREAT MULTIPLICATION.
Apostleship did NOT end with the early apostles. Ephesians 4:11-12 tells us that God placed apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers in the Body of Christ “to equip the saints for the work of the ministry ... for building up the body of Christ?. Nowhere did God ever terminate these offices of pastors, teachers, evangelists, prophets, or apostles.
An “apostle? is basically a “sent one?. In early Greek literature the word “apostello? was used to describe a ship leaving its port with its goods and a bill of lading, headed for its destination. For example: a ship leaving its port in North Africa headed for Greece. As soon as the ship was unloaded, and having delivered its wares and products, it was labeled “apostello?, an “apostle? ship: a “sent one?.
Notice, you do NOT have to be an apostle, one of the ministry gifts to the church (see again Ephesians 4:11-12) to be commissioned. Part of Christ’s commission to the early apostles was to “go into ALL the world and preach the gospel ...? and ... to “teach them (the new believers who follow through with water baptism) all things whatsoever I have commanded you.? “All things? includes the mandate to “Go into ALL the world ...?. It is a self perpetuating movement from the moment our Lord pronounced it! Nothing has stopped it, nothing is stopping it, and nothing ever will stop it!
Ask your church or fellowship to lay hands on you and send you out. You might want to spend a time of prayer and fasting before this. NOTE: Beware if your church says it is going to “release? you! You’re NOT in bondage! Too many churches are “releasing? ministry instead of “sending? ministry!!! To be “sent out? or commissioned? does NOT mean necessarily that you will be changing geographic locality (unless, of course, the Spirit of God directs you in this matter). You may remain, for a season ... or for the rest of your life ... in your present locality bearing fruit for Christ as one “sent out? from the body of Christ.
If you do NOT have a church or fellowship to lay hands on you and send you out, then write to me and I will send you an anointed prayer cloth for commissioning. Write to:
P.O. Box A
Downey, California 90241 USA
Or, you may email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the “Subject?line write the words “Commissioning Prayer Cloth request.?
Please send me a monthly report of what the LORD is doing through you and also include any prayer requests you may have.
The mark of a productive Spirit filled church or fellowship is the regular SPIRIT DIRECTED training and sending out, THE COMMISSIONING, of workers for Christ. If you want to WIN in life then line give your life to Messiah Jesus and line up with His commission! More and more, as we near the time of Messiah’s return, we will also see the sending out, the commissioning, of workers to the children of Israel ... and the subsequent planting of Messianic houses of worship. These will only be fully productive ... and have the FULL BLESSING of God as they shed the exclusivism manifest in so many Messianic fellowships and synagogues today!
Jesus INCLUDES. A spirit of exclusivism is NOT contributory to Yeshua’s ministry of compassion, love, and MIRACLES.
The THIRD precept is that you GO with the Good News.
?Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature ... And these signs shall follow them that believe ...? [Mark 16:15-18] If you GO ... signs will follow. Let me repeat: signs FOLLOW them that believe! You have to GO before something can FOLLOW you!
Take the opportunity to pray for people when it appears (when you are aware of their need) unless the Spirit of God prompts you not to. There are several reasons for this which we will cover at a later time.
Covenant with God that you will take each opportunity presented to you to pray for the physical needs of people in the next seven (7) days. It will change your life and help bring healing and deliverance to many people. You don’t have to be miracle conscious ... just be JESUS conscious! You don’t have to be a preacher. You don’t have to have the “gift? of healing (although there is such a gift). You don’t have to have the “gift? of faith (although there is such a gift).
I love to pray for Jews. As far as I know I have never prayed for a Jewish person to be healed that was not healed. Also, as far as I know I have never prayed for a Jewish person for anything that the request was NOT answered! I give ALL the credit to the Ruach ha Chodesh (the Holy Spirit). Pray for Jews as the LORD gives you the opportunity. It will greatly ENRICH your personal life and your walk with the LORD. In addition, God will BLESS YOU in a special way. “I will bless they that bless you, and I will curse them that curse you.? [Genesis 12:3]
Take the opportunities. Pray for Muslims, pray for Jews, pray for those ensnared or blinded in the New Age movement. Most of the people in the New Age movement and in false religions are really nice people who are seeking the WAY of life but who have been deceived by the god of this world. I remember a lady who was heavily involved in the New Age religion. I prayed for her and she was healed instantly of a condition she had for years. She said “You have POWER!? I explained to her that I didn’t have power but it was Jesus who loved her. He is the WAY to eternal life ... the ONLY WAY!
IF YOUR PLANS FIT INTO GOD’S PLANS ...
YOU WILL HAVE GOD’S FAITH ...
AND GOD’S FAITH ALWAYS WORKS!
