Since I've been asked, I'll post up a quick reference guide to what the different functions of ministry are. We instituted a checks and balances sort of system at Worthy, so that no one person or persons have complete authority.
Worthy Steward -- That's me -- and why do I call myself a Steward. It's merely because I'm a steward of the Lord's ministry. It's not "my" ministry -- and not "my" work. It's the Lord's work!
Worthy Servants -- Those are Forum Moder
JUDGMENT - The Great White Throne.
Universal Heaven and Earth are No More.
`But the Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.` (2 Peter 3: 10)
The Day of the Lord starts with the tribulation and continues through the millennium. Finally after Satan`s last battle he is cast into the lake of fire. (Rev. 2
Colossians 3:2 - "Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth."
This is a time to be fully aware and fully impassioned for the things of God. Do not let the noise and distraction of the things of the world steal your attention in this critical hour! Set your full affections completely on the things that are above and don't be swayed by anything this world has to offer.
When your mind is cluttered with religious mindsets (which often we don't realize), they blo
As some of you read last week, I have decided to do a series of bible studies on what it means to be a "Savage Gentlemen" using men whom I think, fit that description form the Bible. If you want to see my first one, you can visit my blog (I will be posting these to by blog as well, but want to put it here first for discussion) Last week, I focused on King David, this week I am focusing on Joshua.
Joshua, was one of the only two men who left Egypt who managed to set foot in the promised l
Restoring Rulership over Israel.
Christ brings all Rule under His Authority in the Millennium.
The Lord Jesus Christ, the supreme Ruler of all God`s great kingdom will put down all rule and authority in the tribulation and then on into the millennium. This period of time is for Israel to learn rulership under the Lord and to show that mankind is still rebellious even after Satan is locked up.
`For He (Christ) must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet.` (1 Cor. 1
Psalm 1:2,3 - "in His law he MEDITATES day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper."
There are specifically three areas of meditation that we can engage in as Believers so that our heart and mind will be captured in the glory of Who God is. These areas include the Word of God, the voice of God, and the testimonies of God.
1. The Word of God:
John 8:36 - "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed."
Break free from everything that hinders the work of His Spirit in your lives. Be free from all false expectations, man's expectations, religious expectations; every expectation that does not come from the hope and expectancy that He gives to you.
So you must be emptied of all the things that hold you in the earthly realm, repent and turn away from those things that break His heart. Set your prioriti
"And said, Verily I say to you, Except you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven." - Matthew 18:3
It is very important that the foundation upon which we stand is "The Rock," our Lord Jesus Christ, and that our life is hidden "in Christ." If our spiritual experience is resting on sand, that is, if we are trusting our own abilities, we will fail when the pressures of life increase.
We can walk in stability and confidence with H
Restoring Rulership over Israel.
Judgment of the Nations.
After the Lord and His angel army have dealt with the world`s armies, and the anti-Christ and false prophet, He judges the peoples of the nations. Those people who did not look after the Jews during the tribulation will be taken away in judgment. (Matt. 25: 44 & 45 Luke 17: 34 - 37)
`When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nat
I was responding to person with whom I was having a dialogue in a private message here, and I realized that in my typical, long winded fashion, that maybe it should be the subject of one of my blog posts, so here it goes.
If I understood what the person was saying, it could be summarized like this:
A person is saved by grace, through faith, and that subsequent to that, they can be lost, if they sinned and failed to confess and repent.
What I am saying In contrst) is that a person
"Therefore, prophesy and say unto them, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O My people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel." - Ezekiel 37:12
Here God makes us a promise that He will bring us out of the darkness, opening our graves and allowing us to live again! We just have to listen and obey God's Word.
Are there areas of your life that need a touch of Heaven? Ezekiel promises us that God is always watching, always r
Restoring Rulership over the Nations. (b)
Amid the calamities of the tribulation, God destroys the capital of the world, the city of Babylon. In defiance of God, the Global Leader sets about to annihilate God`s people, Israel. The armies of the world are gathered together in the plain of Armageddon, north of Israel. (Rev. 16: 14 & 16)
They organise a full sweep of the land and exterminate every Israeli enroute as they head for Jerusalem. Finally t
"The Lord blessed the latter part of Job's life more than the former part. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys." - Job 42:12 NIV
From time to time we actually have to come out of one project completely before God can transition us to the next assignment. Something that is closing in our lives can make us feel like we are out of control, going to shipwreck, or worse yet, never able to rebound.
Sometimes our calendars, sched
Ephesians 3:20 – “Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.”
Out of the box thinking realizes there is no box. You are the limitless PURPOSE and MANIFESTATION of God’s glory, released into the earth with the same anointing, mission, and message Jesus had over 2,000 years ago.
You now live beyond the dimension of needing your needs met, and you live in that kingdom dimension of being the conduit
The day must come when we leave the wilderness and begin to take the Promised Land of God's intentions. The light of the Glory of His Presence rises upon those who have broken through in contending for the Glory -- doing exploits in His name, they have travailed with the Father and carry His burden for the lost and for the world. Those who have travailed with Him will enter into union with Him; they will carry His authority and the strategies to complete His will to save and transform nations an

Judgment upon the World.
The Body of Christ is then seated with power and authority for they are the heavenly court that takes place in this judgment. The Lord Jesus Christ then takes the Scroll, the legal document with 7 seals. It is an overview of the judgments upon - the 4 Federations, symbolised by the 4 horsemen; those who killed the martyrs: and those who didn`t help the Jews. (Matt. 25: 45)
Cataclysmic events unfold as the gr
Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, "He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end."
Instead of losing heart in 2020 and wondering if something will come alive, begin to actively take control of the situation and "call into being things that were not." God created the universe with the creative, miracle-working power of His Word and He asks us to do the same, even today.

Restoring Rulership in the Third Heaven.
Jesus Christ is visibly crowned.
The first realm of God`s rulership to be restored is in the third heaven, the angelic realm where Lucifer was cast out. There has been no visible rulership since then. God the Father has appointed His Son to be the Kingpriest, the visible ruler there. It is called Mount Zion, representing rulership, and is in the highest realm.
God says, `I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion.` (Ps. 2: 6)
"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." - 2 Chronicles 7:14
DESIRING HIS PRESENCE
It is certainly a time of calling upon the name of the Lord and praying but we don't want to forget the rest of the Scripture...it is also a time to seek His face.
To seek means to desire, to seek to secure oneself to, and to require. Th
Luke 3:16-17 - "John answered and said to them all, "As for me, I baptize you with water; but One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to untie the thong of His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire."
Now the question is, who will burn in this generation? Who will press and receive a revelation that has the power to affect an entire group of people? The Father wants to empower His people with faith and insight that activates His plans in the earth now!
Hebrews 13:5 - “...I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.”
Do you see any storms on the horizon? Don't quit! Make the decision to press through, to press forward, to keep pressing on, even in the face of certain adversity; God has not brought you this far to drop you now!
Declare and meditate on what you know to be the scriptural truths of God! You KNOW He is good! You KNOW He is faithful! You KNOW He will never leave you or forsake you He will bring you through this s
Restoring Rulership in the Third Heaven. (a)
The Body of Christ is Expectant.
The believers are waiting eagerly, looking expectantly for the coming for the Lord. This is a very important attitude as many will be too busy about their earthly cares and material possessions.
`To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time,..`(Heb. 9: 28)
`...exhorting one another and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.` (Heb. 10: 25)

"So may all Your enemies perish, Lord! But may all who love You be like the sun when it rises in its strength..." - Judges 5:31
There is a rising coming for the Body of Christ – a rising within Him, in His ways and in His love to be free in Christ. We are rising up in the glory of the Son. A "rising" can also mean a revolution or revolt – it is time to rise up and push back the powers of darkness trying to encroach and violate our lives!
We are being called to rise up and take ou
