  DESCRIPTION

The SECRET to POWER ministry. The KEY to unbridled FREEDOM. The ANSWER to ENJOYMENT in serving God. The FORMULA for LIBERTY in reaching cultures and nations for Messiah Jesus. Do NOT let anything or anyone hold you back from doing GREAT WORKS for God in the End Times! Prince Handley gives you REVELATION of the MANDATE in simplicity and anointing.

________________________________________________


IMITATIONAL FAITH
ROLE MODELS & THEIR MARKS

Let me share with you something that will set you FREE for creative works. It is this: BE UNIQUE. Serve God in the giftings He has given YOU. Many people―many rabbis and ministers―are serving God as “Copy Cats.” That is, they are copying other ministers or ministries: some unknowingly have been doing this from the start―not even realizing it.

You may ask, “How are they copying―or, trying to copy―others?” Here are some examples: Style, Content, Organization, Outreach, Solicitation. To be effective at maximum efficiency, productivity and anointing you must minister, or serve the LORD, in your own unique way. You do NOT need to―nor are you required to―be like others.

JUST BE YOU!

Let's discuss some areas to clarify our premise.

FAITH: What faith is

Faith is the underpinning―the knowing―that you already own, or have, what you are hoping for and attempting. Why then would you want to copy someone else's pursuit of something that is NOT yours?

GREATNESS: Making your mark in life

Great marks in life start small. Obedience produces opportunity for Kingdom advance. So obey God in what He is leading you and He will open doors. He sees!

DECISION MAKING: The point of decision

Large decsions in life are the composite of the smaller, or minor, decisions you have made, or are making. Learn to make the right move at each point of decision.

Understanding can wait, but obedience can not.

Doubt will erase the mark you want to make in life. Our brother James (Hebrew = Jacob) taught:

When you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. that person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.”  – James 1:6-8

Doubt usually comes from any of four sources:

People;

Self;

Satan; or

Circumstances

Do NOT doubt when you have the visionwhen you knowthat you own what you are attempting.

Start where you're ateven if it's smalland be like the “Energizer Bunny.”

Those who have made fun of this day of small beginnings will rejoice when they see Zerubbabel holding this important stone. Those seven lamps are my eyes—the eyes of the Lord—and they see everything on this earth.”  Zechariah 4:10

There was an NBA basketball player named John Stockton that lots of peole never remember … or even heard about. Before turning pro, he played at a small college in his home town. He just did his job as point guard. But he was like the Energizer Bunny. He left the NBA after 19 seasons with the Utah Jazz, holding a mass of assists records, including the career mark (15,806). He led the league in steals twice and, with a career total of 3,265, he retired as the NBA's all-time leader. He played all 82 games in 17 of his 19 seasons and his career shooting percentage was .515, a remarkable statistic for a guard. "There absolutely, positively, will never ever be another John Stockton – ever," said Karl Malone, Stockton's teammate for 18 seasons.

John Stockton was NOT trying to copyor, be likeanyone else. He just used what giftings he had for 19 seasons. The Jazz never missed the playoffs during Stockton's career and they reached the Western Conference Finals five times in a seven-year span. He left his mark on the game! Famed UCLA basketball coach John Wooden once said Stockton was the NBA player he enjoyed watching the most and the only one he would pay to see.

You are not always the best person to judge your uniqueness! Especially if you're feeling low or insecure. But … YOU are the only one who can make a difference with what God has given YOU. When you hear voices telling you that you are not talented enough or good enough, talk them down. Tell them that YOU are the only one who can do what God has called YOU to do.

Above all, do NOT get yourselfor your service for Godinto a position where you are on a “gristmill” working to maintain and NOT to be creative. Georges St-Pierre, Mixed Martial Arts champion says it well: “You can tell when your enemy is defeated mentally because he is fighting not to lose instead of fighting to win.”

I have listed three books below to help you with greatness, decision making and success through faith:

DESCRIPTION:

If you had nothing and had nobody to help you, how would you fulfill the Great Commission? What would you tell the believers who are in prison, being persecuted for their faith, about how to reach the world for Messiah? The answer is in this podcast.


HOW TO SUCCEED WITH NOTHING

MUSIC / INTRO

While looking out my window one afternoon, the Lord asked me two questions:

     "If you had nothing and had nobody to help you, how would you fulfill the Great Commission?"


     "What would you tell the believers who are in prison, being persecuted for their faith, about how to reach the world for Messiah?"


I had been meditating that afternoon about such things, and the answer to the two questions the Lord asked came succinctly. I wrote down my answer to the Lord immediately, listing the following seven (7) tools with which to carry out the job ... and win the world for Messiah Yeshua.

     1. God's Word, the Holy Bible;

     2. Faith;

     3. Prayer;

     4. Jesus' name;

     5. Tongues;

     6. Forgiveness; and,

     7. Vision.

[] GOD'S WORD, THE HOLY BIBLE

In the Bible I can find 7,000 promises from God that are available to me, and from which I may appropriate my needs, deliverance, healing, favor, direction, and MIRACLES.

I would see in the Bible that God wants me to witness for Christ: to give evidence of what Christ has done for me through my words and actions. I would see that God wants me to lead people to Christ and to train them. [Matthew 18:18-20] This would involve training them to do everything that Jesus had commanded me to do, including baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. I could baptize them in rivers, lakes, churches, oceans, bathtubs, or in tarpaulins in the desert.

This training would involve teaching them to witness for Christ, and to share their testimony with others. It would also include: preaching and teaching; healing the sick, and casting out demons. I would see the great need of establishing a school "behind every bush" to train believers.

In the Bible I would see God's plan for the ages, and God's plan for me. I would see God's plan for the Church: the universal invisible Body of Christ, and the local gathering of believers, whether two or three ... or thousands ... meeting together.

Jesus taught us, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." [Matthew 18:20]

I would see the importance of establishing local churches: groups of believers who gather to study God's Word, to pray, and to worship Him; and from where the local community and government may be blessed; as well as people in other nations.

In the Bible I see God's goals for Planet Earth and the Second Appearing of Messiah Jesus to Jerusalem to establish His kingdom for 1,000 years. I see that before He returns, the Gospel will be proclaimed and published among every nation, race, tribe, people, and ethnic group of the earth. [Mark 13:10]

[] FAITH

I would use my faith, based upon God's promises in His Word and knowing what God wants (His will made known in His Word), to create and bring things into being. I would use faith, the same kind of faith that Abraham used, to believe God for what He says in His Word.

     "Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, 'So shall your seed be'."

     "And being not weak in faith, he [Abraham] considered not his own body now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb [who was about 90]:

     He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

     And being fully persuaded that, what God had promised, He was able also to perform."
[Romans 4:18-21]

So ... if you KNOW what God has promised you in His Word, all you have to do is BELIEVE and OBEY ... like Abraham!

MUSIC

[] PRAYER

Jesus taught us, "And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive." [Matthew 21:22].

I would use prayer not only to talk to God and be in close companionship with Him, but also to make my requests known to Him. I would tell Him what I need and want, and ask for advice as to how to operate to achieve my goal.

James, the first bishop of the church at Jerusalem, and the Lord's brother, taught us:

"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, Who gives to all men liberally, and does not reprimand for asking; and it shall be given to you." [James 1:5]

For an in-depth study of prayer, go to the Archives of The Apostles Group and select the newsletter "How To Talk To God" dated August 11, 2002.

[] JESUS' NAME

Jesus said, "If you shall ask anything in my name, I will do it." [John 14:14]

When you as a believer use the name of Jesus you are identifying with the Master of the universe. It is that name at which demons and Satan tremble, and at which they must become subservient to you. Jesus said, "And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name they shall cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues ..." [Mark 16:17]

The name of Jesus lets demons know the authority in and under which you are operating. It is not only your Power of Attorney, but it is also your POWER! It is the name which gives you life.

"But these are written, that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you might have life through his name." [John 20:31]

Use the name of Jesus to not only bring deliverance to others, but to maintain your own freedom, power, and blessing. And so it is with the name of YAHWEH, the Hebrew name of The LORD: the self existent One.

"The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous run into it, and are safe."
[Proverb 18:10]

[] TONGUES

Tongues, the language of the Spirit, is the software that makes it possible for you to decree supernaturally. When you speak in faith, based upon God's Word and will, you decree miraculously. However, there are times when you do NOT know what to decree ... OR ... how to speak the proper programming language. Tongues, the language of the Holy Spirit, enables the believer in Christ to accomplish this.

For an in-depth study of how to attain this power and blessing, go to the website at
www.realmiracles.com and select Advanced Studies from the BLUE navigation bars at the left of any page. In the Advanced Studies section, select the five (5) volume series titled "How To Receive God's Power" (DCC 9 through 13).

MUSIC

[] FORGIVENESS

Yesterday, a person who is not a Christian asked me this question: "In what area of your life are you most often challenged to use your faith?" I didn't have to think long. My answer was, "In the area of forgiveness." This is an area in which we need to make sure we are "clear" at the start of every day. And, actually, at the end of every day!

I remember as a little boy, one night just after I had covered up in bed, my older sister said to me, "Daddy told us never to go to bed mad at each other." And then we made up with each other. The Holy Bible tells us, "Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath." [Ephesians 4:26]

It may not be a wrathful or angry situation that is bothering you. It may be a strained relationship, bad thoughts towards someone, a word of gossip. Or, it may be nothing you've done wrong; it may be something someone has said or done to you ... or said about you ... and that is bothering you, especially if you are undeserving of the words or action.

Jesus taught us, "For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." [Matthew 6:14-15] Unforgiveness is something you can't take to Heaven!

In Mark 11:22-26, Jesus told the disciples, "Have faith in God." He taught them about speaking in faith, and about receiving in faith. However, he also taught them at the end of this contextual passage that there was something that could hinder them from receiving miracles and answered prayer: it was unforgiveness.

"And when you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone: so that your Father also which is in Heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in Heaven forgive your trespasses." [Verses 25 and 26]

If God can forgive us of a whole lifetime of sin and disobedience – even sins about which no person on earth knows – can we not forgive someone else for the one, or a few, or even many sins they have committed towards us?! And ... if our Heavenly Father had not made a WAY for us to be forgiven by sending His only Son to die in our place on the cross stake ... we would be under the constant condemnation of death and Hell. How can we not forgive others?!

Every day I start my day with what is commonly known as the Lord's Prayer (the disciples prayer He taught them). I clear out any unforgiveness or bitterness so that I can pray successfully and in power ... AND ... so I can experience success. My prayers for myself, friends, associates, and loved ones ... and the prayers for others around the world ... depend upon me forgiving others.

"And you be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake has forgiven you." [Ephesians 4:32]

[] VISION

When was the last time you "dreamed" for God? IMAGINE! What would your life and ministry be like if your present hindrances were removed? And, what would your life be like if you could accomplish all the things you IMAGINE ... or ASK for? C. S. Lewis, in his book The Weight of Glory, said, " ... our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak!"

David succeeded in killing the giant, Goliath, the same way the two men of faith, Caleb and Joshua, succeeded in entering the promise land: because he SAW, as they did, obstacles as opportunities for MIRACLES: avenues through which God could be glorified! The size of the person is more important than the size of the problem. Who are you on the inside and in Whom do you trust!

Don't focus on the giants … focus on God. That's why the enemy lies to you. The devil wants to get your attention away from your Heavenly Father: away from His love for you and His ability to provide for you.

Study the following newsletters from the Archives of The Apostles Group:

     "Remove the Barriers" (May 04, 2003)

     "The Vision and the Miraculous" (May 11, 2003)

     "An Anointing for Success" (May 18, 2003)

Change your thinking. Think BIG.

MUSIC

Jeshua taught us, "But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved." [Luke 5:38] Think PAST the limits of your mind. Stretch out your horizon of ENDEAVORS and THOUGHTS. "These things began Jesus both to DO and to TEACH." Base your thoughts, your goals, and your endeavors upon God's Holy Word. Use your faith!

     Think BIG!

     Believe!

     Receive!

     Act!

     Multiply!

To SEE with the mind's eye … that is, to envision … can encompass the following: imagination, thinking, and decision making. To "cut out" with the mind's eye is to SEE IT, or to THINK IT upon the tablet of your heart or human spirit.

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!

To decree is the progenitor (or, precursor) of heart belief and mouth confession. It is BOTH the nucleus and "all-encompassing" embryo of initiating great moves of the Holy Spirit on Planet Earth. This is why we need to SPEND TIME MEDITATING GOD'S WORD. We're NOT talking about New Age type meditation, which can actually be used, and even energized, by demonic forces. We're talking about MEDITATING God's Word so we KNOW HOW to work in alignment with our Father in Heaven, Jehovah.

Increase your vision. What can you SEE? What can you IMAGINE? How greatly can you ASK or THINK?

"Now unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ASK or THINK, according to the power that works in us, unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen."
[Ephesians 3:20, 21]

At the beginning of this podcast I shared with you two questions the Lord asked me:

     "If you had nothing and had nobody to help you, how would you fulfill the Great Commission?"

     "What would you tell the believers who are in prison, being persecuted for their faith, about how to reach the world for Messiah?"


I answered those two questions in this teaching. You might ask me: "How do you know what it's like to be in jail for Yeshua?" I know because I HAVE BEEN in jail for Jesus ... for preaching His Gospel. Never teach what you can't do.

"The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began to DO and TEACH."
[Acts 1:1]

Nine (9) people were saved as a result of the Holy Spirit using me to preach inside the jail cell, plus the Lord gave me victory in one of the largest court cases of this kind.


"Then said Yeshua unto him, 'Go, and do thou likewise'." [Luke 10:37]

Baruch haba b'Shem Adonai.

SUCCESS THRU ACTION SERIES – PART 5 (FINAL)

MUSIC / INTRO

YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A WONDERFUL FUTURE

Remember that ACTION keeps you under the anointing so that you are as a new, sharp threshing instrument. Knowing that the enemy’s KEY INTENTION is to STOP your action, you now have military intelligence as to his plans. Your main focus NOW should be on developing a spirit of excellence in your action. That’s what The University of Excellence is about.

There are SEVEN (7) things you need to cultivate a spirit of excellence:

1. VISION

Spend time with God. Pray and fast for:  A fresh vision; and, A prophetic, apostolic anointing.

2. DETERMINATION

You need "bulldog" endurance and perseverance. You can't be a "pansy" and you can't be a quitter. Be a warrior and remember: If you don't quit, you will win! (But if you quit, you can't win!)

3. PRIORITIES

You need to put God's program FIRST in life. He will show you when you need to spend time for family, for recreation, and for fellowship. At times, He may have you spend LOTS of time on family, recreation, and fellowship. But don't try to replace God's Kingdom as your top priority. "You seek first the kingdom of God, and all things will be added unto you." (Matthew 6:33)

MUSIC

4. ACCOUNTABILITY  

Accountability will give you real liberty. You need to be accountable to: Jesus, the Great Pastor; and, Others, in ministry.

5. REST  

You need to rest one day a week. This is God's plan and is necessary for your overall long-term health and blessing. At times, He may lead you to take extended periods of rest. Always obey Him in these matters. He knows what is best for you . . . and for those to whom you minister. You can't minister effectively if you're worn out or burnt out! "For thus says the LORD God, the Holy One of Israel, In returning and rest you will be saved; in quietness and confidence will be your strength." (Isaiah 30:15) Honoring and keeping the Sabbath will also enable you to appropriate the rewards of a spirit of EXCELLENCE: delight, dominion, and desires granted. (Isaiah 58:13-14)

6. A HEART FOR GOD

The prophet Samuel said, “The LORD has sought him a man after his own heart,” describing King David. (1 Samuel 13:14) After being anointed, and successful as a king and military leader - the champion of the people - King David sinned greatly. Even in the midst of his sin, he had a heart toward God, which caused him to repent. He paid dearly for his sin, but even in the midst of his sin, he loved God and was repentant.

In all his public official conduct he acted according to the Divine mind, and fulfilled the will of his Maker: thus was he a man after God's own heart. In reference to his private or personal moral conduct, the word is never used.

So what was his problem? Why did David sin? The answer is: He didn’t FEAR God. He loved God, but He didn’t fear Him! We need to be not only morally reverent towards God, but also to have a sense of alarm that will keep us from walking off the path of righteousness. We need to think ahead of time about the consequences of our sin and transgression. Our Father in Heaven loves us too much to let us get away with such behavior. There is not much preaching on holiness anymore.  We need to LOVE GOD and to FEAR GOD; then we will have a heart for God.

In David’s rulership of the Kingdom, in his official conduct, he fulfilled the will of God; however, in his private life and personal conduct he failed miserably - but then repented. This brings to light THREE very important things to consider:

Your actions can bring reproach on God, yourself, your family, your friends, your nation, and your cause.

Your actions can give your enemies occasion to slander you and also mock the God you are supposed to be serving.

  Your actions can bring severe judgment upon you and your family.

In the heat of temptation you need to consider these things. Are you willing to pay the price? Do you LOVE God and your family enough to protect them from the results of your sin? Do you FEAR God enough to prohibit you from doing the thing(s) you are considering?

MUSIC

7. INTEGRITY

Honesty and moral uprightness are the KEY INDICATORS of the God shaped life. The deeper your character, the greater your impact! Many things that we question in life, even small things, are a TEST of our integrity. God is constantly testing us to see if we can be entrusted with greater giftings, talents, skills, and responsibilities.

Integrity is a two edged sword. It is an instrument of blessing:

For ourselves -

We must live with ourselves in all good conscience. “For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved if our heart condemn us not, then we have confidence toward God.” (1 John 3:20-21) This assures us of answered prayer and provision. “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.” (Verse 22)

For others -

Our families, our friends, our parishioners, our communities . . . our progeny . . . all are impacted by our integrity. The quality of our life is a direct antecedent of the same. The degree of EXCELLENCE of your life and ministry predetermines your future . . . and many times, the future of those to whom you minister and love.

LIVE A LIFE OF EXCELLENCE!

DESCRIPTION:

How to take ACTION so you can do the things you most want to do in life: the things God has called you to do! How to fulfill your destiny with excellence! In this podcast I talk specifically about how to recover loss and take action against Satan's attack on your mind, your body, your emotions, and your possessions!



SUCCESS THRU ACTION SERIES – PART 4

MUSIC / INTRO

The feedback from this Success Thru Action Series has been so great that we are continuing two more sessions.

We left off last time discussing fear and imposed shame. Along with fear and imposed shame, the enemy will also, at times, try to attack the seasoned warrior of Christ with mental oppression. Again, I have some Good News for you.

Oppression - both mental and physical - are included in Christ's work FOR YOU. Christ was driven; he was abased and looked down upon. Isaiah 53:7 says, "He was oppressed and he was afflicted."  The Hebrew word for “oppress” (nagas) in this passage means “to drive, to harass, to tyrannize, to oppress.”

The original word used for “afflicted” (anah) means “to look down upon, depress, abase, humble.” Christ was driven; he was abased and looked down upon. In Isaiah 53:4, we read, "he carried our pains."  The literal Hebrew meaning is “acute pain; intense suffering: MENTAL or PHYSICAL."

 In Psalm 41, a Psalm of David written 1,000 years before Christ, Kind David writes, "LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul, for I have sinned against you." (Verse 4) The Hebrew word here used for "soul" is "nephesh" which refers to not only the mind, but also the heart: healing for the intellect, the emotion, and the will, as well as the body.

MUSIC

Jesus carried sickness, sin, disease, poverty and oppression - the works of the devil (Satan) - FOR YOU! YOU don't have to carry them any longer! They do NOT belong to the believer in Christ! Jesus healed the separation between God and man through His work (the atonement) FOR US, and therefore ended Satan's dominion over ALL who would trust in Christ. "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might DESTROY the works of the devil." (1 John 3:8)

Action, including intercession, is the key thing Satan is afraid of in your life and ministry. He wants to STOP your action. But he can’t if you do NOT let him! “The kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.” (Matthew 11:12) The Greek word for “violent” here used is “biastes” and means a “forcer” or “one who is energetic.” The devil is AFRAID of your ENERGY directed towards the kingdom!

Notice that most of the attacks Satan makes against you are in the realm of the mind through lies: telling you that you are ill, weak, going to die; or using imposed shame, fear, or discouragement. This is why you must be proactive and DECLARE the BLOOD of Christ over your body, mind, soul and spirit each day. (This way, even your emotions are covered.)

MUSIC

It's interesting to note that one of the names of the devil is "Beelzebub." The original Hebrew name means "Lord of the flies" and it was the name of a Philistine [Palestinian] god. It was a "dung god" . . . a "manure god." What a wonderful title for Satan: "Lord of the maggots . . . the manure god!" Dead blood draws flies. GOOD NEWS! The LIVING BLOOD of Jesus repulses Satan and his demons. Speak the BLOOD over your home and family.

Just as the Israelites applied the BLOOD to their doors so that the death angel would pass over (Exodus 12), so you can apply the BLOOD of Christ over your family and home by speaking it in faith over them. Declare the BLOOD of Christ over your loved ones daily and over all that God has given you by birth, adoption, or assignment!

In case you ever become  - or have already been - a victim of any of these attacks of Satan, and have suffered loss of spiritual or physical dominion, I have again some Good News for you.

What has caused you to suffer loss:

Sin?

Disobedience?

Bad decision?

  Attack from the enemy?

Whatever it was, God CAN turn the situation around for you. God WANTS to turn it around for you! There are FOUR (4) major points to consider for recovering your loss:

1. Realize there is a turning point - a good future. (Remember King David.)

2. Do what God tells you to do. Pray, listen, and obey.

3. Make your past glorify God.

  4. Go forward.

MUSIC

SCRIPTURES RELATED TO RECOVERING YOUR LOSSES:

"So I will restore to you the years . . . the locust (the enemy) has eaten. You will eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, who has dealt wondrously with you; My people will never be put to shame." (Joel 2:25-26)

"As for you also, because of the blood of your covenant, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit. Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope. Even today, I declare that I will restore DOUBLE to you." ( Zechariah 9:11-12)

"Instead of your shame you will have DOUBLE honor, and instead of confusion they will rejoice in their portion. Therefore, in their land they will possess DOUBLE." (Isaiah 61:7)

"I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they will increase and bear young (be fruitful); I will make you inhabited as in former times, and do better for you than at your beginnings. Then you will know that I am the LORD." (Ezekiel 36:11)

“And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before. So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning.” (Job 42:10,12)

YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A WONDERFUL FUTURE!

DESCRIPTION:

How to take ACTION so you can do the things you most want to do in life: the things God has called you to do! How to fulfill your destiny with excellence!



SUCCESS THRU ACTION SERIES – PART 3

MUSIC / INTRO

There is an old saying, "You are as others see you."  The devil knows if you have FEAR in your heart. If you do, ask God to help you. Ask him to take the fear away. King David said, "What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee (the LORD)."  (Psalm 56:3) Go to the Word of God and RECEIVE BY FAITH the power promised in the scriptures, such as: "For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."  (2 Timothy 1:7)

Fear is a spirit; therefore, you must speak to it. God is love and He is spirit. Love is stronger than fear. Perfect love casts out fear. "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love."  (1 John 4:18) If you are afraid of someone, ask God to give you His love for them. You can bind fear in the name of Jesus, and cast it away from you.

Command fear to leave, and use the name of Jesus against it. Speak (declare) the BLOOD of Christ against it. It is your responsibility to overcome fear.

MUSIC

SERIOUS cases of fear require four (4) steps:

1. A stayed (fixed) mind. You won't quit until fear is totally eliminated!

2. Confession of God's Word (1 John 4:18; James 4:7; 2 Timothy 1:7).

3. A step of faith - action. Speak to fear and take authority over it.

4. Intercession and spiritual warfare (for others or one's self).

IMPORTANT: The reason for this attack of fear is to get you to STOP action!

The enemy’s chief concern is that you STOP doing what you are currently involved in doing. You have been TOO SUCCESSFUL; also, your plans for future endeavors are causing him to freak out. The devil is the most frustrated person in the world today; he knows that his time is running out. When the fullness of the Gentiles takes place, then all Israel (the nation as a whole) will be saved. (Romans 11)

MUSIC

SunTzu, in  his book, The Art of War , says: “Every battle is won before it is fought.” How true in Christian warfare: even the whole war is won because of the victory of our Lord Jesus Christ. His death, burial, and resurrection conquered the enemy and bought our freedom and eternal life. We take ACTION on that victory by appropriating it in faith as we move forward.

Another weapon in the arsenal of the enemy, in addition to fear, is shame. The enemy will try to attack you with imposed shame.

Lots of times, the enemy will attack even seasoned warriors with imposed shame from family members or friends as a result of some fault or failure from the past.

There are many examples of shame experienced by people of God in the Bible. None of is are perfect: that's why we need a Savior! Abraham (the same as) sold his wife two times. Moses killed a man in anger. David committed adultery and murder. Peter denied Messiah three times in one night. We see that Adam's shame was manifested in hiding.

In Revelation 3:18, Jesus admonished the Church at Laodicea to "Buy of me white raiment, that you may be clothed, (so) that the shame of our nakedness does not appear." 

There are several types of shame: 

Adamic shame;

Inherited shame;

Actual shame; and,

Imposed shame.

Every one of these types of shame may be remitted, or canceled, by the atonement of Christ. The BLOOD of Christ paid for you and your sins, and provides healing for shame.

MUSIC

The verdict of guilt, whether real or imagined, is shame. It may be something inherited from Adam (who brought sin into the world as the federal head of the race); or it may be something inherited from ancestral, or family lines. It may be actual shame, resulting from an action you have initiated. And, it may be psychological shame - real or false shame that people or demon spirits have tried to impose upon you, resulting in oppression, rejection, physical or mental sickness, and lack of production.

Jesus Christ bore your shame. Hebrews 12:2 tells us that our Lord Jesus despised the shame of the cross and his nakedness thereon, but went through it because of the JOY set before Him: that is, Christ saw YOU able to be made whole and to know God, with your sins forgiven and having eternal life, as the result of His sacrifice. Jesus despised shame, and He despises it in YOUR life. He died for YOU so that you do NOT have to carry shame. Messiah Jesus carried shame for YOU!

Jesus is alive to remit guilt and its resultant shame from your life today. You can appropriate the healing in His shed BLOOD for you by calling on Him today. Pray and ask Him to deliver you. You can get back up because He got back up! The Master has need of you in these last days.

DESCRIPTION:

How to take ACTION so you can do the things you most want to do in life: the things God has called you to do! How to fulfill your destiny with excellence!


SUCCESS THRU ACTION SERIES – PART 2

MUSIC / INTRO

There was a movie several years ago titled, Stuck On You, which starred Matt Damon and Cher. It was about two brothers who were Siamese twins. Finally, the brothers realized they needed to be separated (physically by surgery) in order to do what each brother wanted to fulfill in his lifetime.

They reached this decision when one brother asked the other, "What is that thing you want to do MOST in the world?" And then he challenged his brother with this admonition: "You have to do it!"

Let me recommend eight (8) steps to take in order to help get you out of your desensitized spirituality and into the vortex of God's anointing:

1.  As much as possible, stop all activity for a while, even ministry.

2.  Get loose, relax, and enjoy God. NOTE: Many times you will be tempted to start a new ministry or outreach right away (while relaxing in your time of rest). That would be like shooting yourself in the foot while you're walking to the hospital. If God has given you NEW ideas or directives, take skeletal notes (or even copious notes if you feel the necessity). Then store the notes for the future time of implementing the project(s). You will find that, as you're relaxing in the sunshine of God's love, an abundance of ideas will come to you.

MUSIC

3.  Take time to dream. At The University of Excellence, of which I am President and Regent, we discuss the fact that Albert Einstein, perhaps the greatest mathematician and physicist of the last century, had two (2) major assets:

A childlike questioning character (like a four or five-year-old); and,

An intellectual capacity to think beyond.

At the U of E, I ask the students questions like -

How long has it been since you've asked your Heavenly Father some childlike questions?”

What can you do to reach every nation and tribe for Christ?

What is the KEY thing you can do that will impact nations the most?

What are new ways to market the Good News?

What are some secrets of the universe that nobody knows?

Have you asked God what He likes about you the most?

I also ask them, “How long has it been since you” -

Discarded all your ideas about how to minister?

Researched new trends and cultural evolutionary movements?

Asked a lost person how they would reach the world for Christ?

Studied the ants?

Studied seeds, climatology, and weather patterns?

4.  Know who you are. Read through the epistles; learn once again WHO you are in Christ and WHAT you have in Christ. You have to come to the place, once again, where you KNOW the calling and destiny that has been designed for you before the foundation of the world. True holiness, and also true Biblical prosperity, is to KNOW that you're working "hand-in-hand" with God to shake nations for Messiah Jesus.

5.  Meditate. Find the scriptures (rhema) that speak to you concerning your calling and destiny and dwell on them. Speak them to yourself. See yourself doing the things involved with your calling and destiny. Image them upon the screen of your mind. See the places and the activities and then THANK God for their fulfillment. Receive them by faith. SEE, SPEAK, THANK, RECEIVE.

MUSIC

6.  Change your environment (and maybe your friends). This is why God sent his servants into different areas, sometimes as a result of hard-times. It's a lot easier if you do it for yourself, with the leading of the Holy Spirit. Imitational faith (the copying of ministry styles used by others) results not only in lack of creativity, but also inbreeding in the Body of Christ.

Be yourself  and be original! Don't be afraid to be different. Study the lifestyles of God's servants through the centuries (in the Bible, and throughout Christian church history). Study Apostle Handley's book, Militant Church History, Copyright 1998 Handley World Services.

7.  Re-evaluate your goals. Which ones have been accomplished? Are there any goals that you feel you should scrap for now, or permanently? Which ones are not accomplished yet? Why are they not accomplished? Where are you in your time line, or schedule, for their fulfillment?

What action will you take to implement them in a timely fashion? Are there any new goals or projects God wants you to undertake? If so, do they fit into the general scheme of your other goals? Are they completely separate from your other goals?

8.  Make your plans fit into God's plans. The GREATEST ADVICE I can give you concerning your plans is as follows:

IF YOUR PLANS FIT INTO GOD'S PLANS …

YOU WILL HAVE GOD'S FAITH …

AND GOD'S FAITH ALWAYS WORKS!

Cry out to God and tell Him you want to be used greatly by Him; that you don't want to come home to Heaven until you've fulfilled, with excellence, your calling and your destiny. And remember the words of King Solomon: "He that fears God will come forth of them all."

We are to fear God … NOT men, demons, or anything else. The enemy knows if he can get you to fear anyone or anything other than God, he can cancel your fear of God and thereby void the operation of wisdom in your life (at least temporarily until you become aware of what’s happening).

You have to shut off the ideas of fear and replace them with IDEAS OF FAITH. Use visual thoughts when you have thoughts of concern. You will eliminate most of Satan’s attacks on your mind. You will also destroy Satanic activity in its tracks! When you have thoughts of fear, replace them with VISUAL THOUGHTS. So when you have thoughts of fear - about  your family, your possessions, your relationships, your ministry, your health - replace them with VISUAL THOUGHTS. See the Holy Angels ministering to, blessing and guarding your family, your possessions, your health, and your ministry.

By visualizing your thoughts, you can even add emphasis (power and potency) to them by decreeing them. Use the Holy Angels in your thoughts. See them helping you. See the BLOOD of Christ over everything God has given you by birth, adoption, and assignment.

MUSIC

CONSIDER:

If we turn back God cannot fight for us. Why? Because, when we turn our back, we are disobeying our leading and our Leader. We are not taking ACTION.

We will not see MIRACLES unless through ACTION we put ourselves in a position in which God can work for us. God works in the area of the impossible. What is impossible with men is possible with God.

You may not need direction. You may just need to go forward = ACTION.

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!

POWER TWINS FOR SUCCESS AND VISION - PART 2



DESCRIPTION:

How to receive the second pair of Power Twins for success and vision.

The importance of rest for creativity, development, and new experiences.

Why it is extremely important to be eccentric in the eyes of society.

The remaining Power Twins will be discussed in subsequent teachings.



POWER TWINS FOR SUCCESS AND VISION - PART 2

I guarantee you success and continued vision! You will not be barren or unfruitful, if you practice what I am teaching you in this series. Also, you will have an abundant entrance into Heaven. Remember, there are rewards in Heaven for your labor of love and faithfulness here on earth.

Jesus wants to say to you when you enter Heaven: "Well done, you good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things; I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of the Lord." [ Matthew 25:21]

You need continued vision for vitality. The Bible says, "Without a vision, the people perish." [Proverb 29:18] To be successful in this life and to prepare for life in Heaven . . . and to maintain continued vision so we will be fresh and vibrant . . . there are eight (8) TWIN STRATEGIES to help you.

In the last teaching we discussed the FIRST TWO TWINS for success and continued vision:

Enthusiastic Desire PLUS Faith; and,

Decisive Nature PLUS Virtue.

To review these first two twins, go to the Archives of previous podcasts.

We will discuss the next two (2) twins in this teaching. They are as follows:

Specialized Knowledge PLUS Spiritual Knowledge; and,

Quest for Excellence PLUS Temperance.

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

SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE PLUS SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE

If you are going to be used greatly by God, then you will have to make up your mind ahead of time that you are willing to do things . . . and exploits . . . that are out of the ordinary. Jesus did not fit into the normal mold of man, even though He was God in human flesh. He was a perfect man . . . but he was focused on doing the will of God . . . not the will of man.

Likewise, if you make the decision to do the will of God during your time here on earth, then neither will you will fit into the normal mold of man: you will seem eccentric to the world. You will find yourself continuously "ahead of the curve." The definition of eccentric is as follows:

       1. Unconventional and slightly strange;

       2. Not placed centrally or having its axis placed centrally.

But you see, this definition is from the perspective of what is “normal? and God did NOT call us to be normal by the world’s standards. Rather, the normal Christian life is abnormal to the world.

The origin of the word “eccentric? is from the Greek “ekkentros?: “ek? meaning “out of? plus “kentron? meaning “center? or “out of center.?

John Steward Mill gives an insightful comment of truth concerning this:

“Eccentricity has always abounded when and where strength of character has abounded; and the amount of eccentricity in society has always been proportioned to the amount of genius, mental vigor and moral courage which it contained. That so few men now dare to be eccentric marks the chief danger of our time.?

Specialized knowledge is highly dependent upon genius and mental vigor. The second of these two, mental vigor, can complement what may be lacking in the first of the two: genius.

What is that GREAT THING you want to do for God? Do you have the SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE to attain that goal? Are you willing to sacrifice, study, and research to obtain the knowledge required to complete the task? Don’t be a lazy Christian. God did not call us to complacency, but rather to excellence.

I have been on this planet for several scores of years, and I still spend much time studying and researching to find NEW, BETTER, and MORE PRODUCTIVE ways to reach the world for Christ and to help my fellow man. Don’t be afraid . . . and never get too old . . . to go back to school for more formal education.

One of the best schools for Christians to learn MEDIA PRODUCTION, and one which I fully endorse, is “Full Sail Real World Education? based in Orlando, Florida, USA. They may be contacted by phone at 800.226.7625 or 407.679.6333. FAX to 407.678.0070. You may contact them on the web at WWW.FULLSAIL.COM. Some of their major fields of study are:

Film;

Digital Media;

Recording Arts;

Computer Animation;

Entertainment Business;

Show Production and Touring;

Game Design and Development.

You can tell them that Prince Handley recommended you.

We are living in a day like the prophet Daniel described where “knowledge shall be increased? and we should take advantage of it 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 other ways to influence society and to reach the world for Christ other than through the media. 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]

One of the measures of a man's success in life is how many of his children make it to Heaven. If we know the Lord, we are living part of our eternal life NOW, while here on earth, and then in Heaven. It will never end!

Jesus taught us, "What does it profit a man if he gains all the world, and loses his own soul? Also, what shall a man give in exchange, or to buy back, his soul?" [Mark 16:26 - Mark 8:36]

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]

We should BELIEVE this and EXPECT it. Our children should be our greatest disciples. If not, something is wrong, or out of place.

Learn the PROMISES in Gods Word; believe them and appropriate them by faith. Take quality time daily to study and meditate in God’s Word. I usually separate my “study time? from my “devotional time.? In the morning, before I start my active day, I have my devotional time where I just want God to speak to me and minister to me through His Word, even before I have my prayer time. I made a rule years ago: “No Bible, no breakfast.? Eat the Word of God first. Jesus said, “It is written: Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.? [Matthew 4:4 and Torah - Deuteronomy 8:3]

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 knowledge gained through the acquisition of physical skills or craftsmanship. Bezaleel was such a man:

“And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying, See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, to devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, and in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.? [Exodus 31:1-5]

When SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE is combined with SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE, there is a holy anointing upon our lives: our talents, skills, and abilities. Together, they not only complement each other, but they synergize each other. You will be a candidate for MIRACLES - real miracles!

But always remember: “Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.? [1 Corinthians 8:1] Temper your knowledge (both specialized and spiritual) with LOVE!

Daniel was a leader, counselor, and basically Prime Minister in three different foreign kingdoms (in which he was captive) partly because of his knowledge base. The Bible tells us concerning Daniel and the three Hebrew teenagers who accompanied him into captivity:

“Children in whom was no blemish, but well favored, and skillful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability . . .?
[Daniel 1:4]

QUEST FOR EXCELLENCE PLUS TEMPERANCE

The Bible tells us another of the secrets of Daniel’s success:

“It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom a hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom; and over these three presidents: of whom Daniel was first, so that the princes might give accounts unto the presidents, and the king should have no damage.?

“Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an EXCELLENT spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.? [Daniel 6:1-3]

The word here used for “excellent? is “yateer? and in its root form means “preeminent, or very exceedingly excellent.? That’s because the spirit that was in Daniel was the Holy Spirit. Because of Daniel’s separation and devotion to God, he manifested a quality of excellence in whatever he attempted.

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.

“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]

Don’t compare yourself with someone else; just do what you know God wants you to do. Do your best, don’t be satisfied with low quality work or effort. It’s interesting that the origin of the word mediocre is from the Latin “mediocris? which means of “middle height or degree? but literally means “somewhat rugged or mountainous.? It is derived from the words “medius? for “middle? and “ocris? for “rugged mountain.?

To do mediocre work is actually harder on you because you are causing your conscience to condemn you. It is like climbing a rugged mountain. The Bible says, “For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.? [1 John 3:20] The EXCELLENT choice may be more of a sacrifice temporarily, but it will be easier on you in the long term. You will never go wrong striving for excellence!

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 ourself, and doing unto him as we would have him do to us, also is the guideline our Master set before us.

Practice excellence in your WORK. Be a good steward for you earthly employer and your Heavenly employer. Colossians 3:22 instructs us NOT to do sight-labor, that is: work that needs watching ... or working because someone is 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 1 of this teaching to help develop excellence in acumen; 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.?

The word leisure comes from the Latin word “licere? which means “to be permitted.? The Latin word for work is “negotium? which means “nonleisure.? Most so-called advanced societies today have turned this around and view leisure as nonwork!

Tim Hansel, in his book When I Relax I Feel Guilty, points out that the Greeks stressed the centrality of lesiure, but they added another important facet. The Greek word for work was “ascholia,? which means “absence of leisure.? The word for leisure was “schole,? which leads to the English words for school and scholarship. Leisure, then, was a time for growth and development.

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!

In the last teaching we discussed the FIRST TWO TWINS for success and continued vision:

Enthusiastic Desire PLUS Faith; and,

Decisive Nature PLUS Virtue.

In this teaching we discussed the third and fourth twins:

Specialized Knowledge PLUS Spiritual Knowledge; and,

Quest for Excellence PLUS Temperance.

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

POWER TWINS FOR SUCCESS AND VISION

POWER TWINS FOR SUCCESS AND VISION

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]

The measure of a man's success in life is how many of his children make it to Heaven.
If we know the Lord, you are living part of your eternal life NOW, while here on earth, and then in Heaven. It will never end!

Jesus taught us, "What does it profit a man if he gains all the world, and loses his own soul? Also, what shall a man give in exchange, or to buy back, his soul?" [Mark 16:26 - Mark 8:36]

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.

We should BELIEVE this and EXPECT it. Your children should be your greatest disciples. If not, something is wrong, or out of place.

I guarantee you success and continued vision! You will not be barren or unfruitful, if you practice what I am about to teach you. Also, you will have an abundant entrance into Heaven. Remember, there are rewards in Heaven for your labor of love and faithfulness here on earth.

Jesus wants to be able to say to you when you enter Heaven: "Well done, you good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things; I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of the Lord." [ Matthew 25:21]

You need continued vision for vitality. The Bible says, "Without a vision, the people perish." [Proverb 29:18] To be successful in this life and to prepare for life in Heaven . . . and to maintain continued vision so we will be fresh and vibrant . . . there are eight (8) TWIN STRATEGIES to help you.

The FIRST TWO TWINS for success and continued vision are as follows:

       Enthusiastic Desire PLUS Faith; and,

       Decisive Nature PLUS Virtue.

We will discuss the first two (2) twins in this teaching. The remaining twins for success and continued vision will be discussed in subsequent teachings.

ENTHUSIASTIC DESIRE PLUS FAITH

If you do not have burning desires and goals throughout life, you will become bored. The English word enthusiasm means intense enjoyment or interest. It has its root in the Greek word enthous, meaning possessed by God.

Josiah became king of Judah when he was eight years old and reigned for 31 years. "And like unto him was there no king before him, that turned to the Lord with ALL HIS HEART, and with all his soul, and with all his might, according to all the law of Moses; neither after him arose there any like unto him." [2 Kings 23:25]

There is a wonderful promise in Mark 11:24 which Jesus declared: "Therefore I say unto you, What things soever you DESIRE, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them."

Another wonderful promise in Psalm 37:4 states: "Delight yourself in the Lord, and He shall give you the DESIRES of your heart."

When you have pleasurable emotion in the Lord, when you delight in Him . . . when you are ENTHUSED in your worship of Him . . . then He will give you the DESIRES of your heart. He first gives them to you by placing them in your heart and mind. And secondly, He gives them to you by granting them . . . bringing them to fruition . . . after you have consistently applied your FAITH.

These desires will many times be to do GREAT THINGS; and the enemy, the devil, will lie to you and tell you that you can NOT accomplish them. But the devil is a liar and God is truth. This is one way you know that those desires in your heart to do BIG THINGS for Christ are from God: because the devil is trying to talk you out of them!

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 PLANS fit into God's plans

. . . you will have God's FAITH

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

DECISIVE NATURE PLUS VIRTUE

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 us everything we need for LIFE and GODLINESS through His PROMISES and the KNOWLEDGE of Christ.

In business we need to draw upon quality research, marketing, and experience (sometimes the input of others). And we need to KNOW when to act. Timing is a 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. It also includes the connotation of the miracles. We need to be people of EXCELLENCE. Our nature should be to make excellent DECISIONS based upon VIRTUE.

"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!

There are several words for TIME in the Bible, but in our discussion here of DECISIVE NATURE we are talking about a due season of time, or an opportune season of time. It is the meaning which if you miss the window of time presented you . . . or available at this particular time . . . then you will MISS the opportunity! In the New Testament it is the Greek word “kairos.?

An example of exercising a DECISIVE NATURE along with VIRTUE is in the Old Testament in the Book of Esther when the Jews were facing extermination in 127 provinces from India to Ethiopia. Mordecai told Queen Esther:

"For if you altogether hold your peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but you and your father's house shall be destroyed: and who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?"

Ruth is another example of a person who exercised a DECISIVE NATURE and VIRTUE when she decided to go to Israel with her mother-in-law. She said: "Entreat me not to leave you, or to return from following after you: for where you go, I will go; and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God will be my God." [Ruth 1:16]

In this podcast we have discussed the first two twins for SUCCESS and CONTINUED VISION:

       Enthusiastic Desire PLUS Faith; and,

      Decisive Nature PLUS Virtue.

The remaining Power Twins will be discussed in following podcasts.
