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
Psalm 18:28-29 says, “For You will light my lamp; the Lord My God will enlighten my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop; by my God I can leap over a wall.”
Not only will you leap over a wall, but you will receive supernatural strength, leap over every obstacle, and position yourself to go through the opening door that God has for you. Fear not the enemies on the other side of this gate. For you will leap through your new point of entry and tread upon the enemy’s head.
Romans 8:11 - "But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you."
As the dead body of Christ was given life and brought out by the Holy Spirit, may we be given eyes to see and ears to hear and a tongue to speak as the oracles of God. "If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God" (1 Peter 4:11). We are dependent on the Holy Spirit to breath t
John 15:9-10 "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love..."
Deep encounters await Believers as they press in for deeper revelation of God's love and the truth that we are loved.
Galatians 2:20 "I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I LIVE BY THE FAITH OF THE SON OF GOD WHO LOVED ME and gave himself for me."
1 Timothy 2:1 - "I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them." Luke 6:28 -"bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you."
When we bless someone, we are, in essence, saying, "May all of God's good plan for your come to pass." When we bless others, the blessing comes back to us. Not only should we bless those whom we love and admire, but God also commands us to bless our enemies so that we might in
Exodus 12:13 -- "Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you....."
On the night of the first Passover, many of the children of Israel were probably anxious.
They may have said "Yes! We were told to put the blood of the lamb on the doorposts of our home and everything would be all right. Is that true?"
Or "Can the blood really protect me? Or How much blood do I have to
Hebrews 11:1 - "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
The way we use the word "hope" in everyday speech and the meaning of hope used in the Bible are two different things. When we say "I hope so" we simply mean "I desire or I wish."
Bible hope isn't wishing at all. It is earnest confident intense expectation -- and that's something else entirely. Acts 26:6 uses the phrase "hope of the promise"referring to the covenant God made with Abraham. Th
Ezekiel 37:5 - "Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live."
While Ezekiel was in the Spirit, it came to him to prophesy to the dry bones and say "O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord" (verse 4) and he saw an "exceeding great army" (verse 10) rising up about him. What is impossible with man is possible with God (Luke 18:27).
Our hearts always ought to burn. There is a place where we can live in the anointing and the clothing of the Spirit, where our words wi
As sons and daughters of the King, we have been given authority to pray Heaven's blessings to earth.
It is God's desire to bless us and for us to witness and "see" His promises manifest.
Just as Jeremiah was given the ability to "see" his new season (see Jeremiah 1:4-12), we are present-day Jeremiahs – having our eyes opened to understand and know all that God has formed for us (our future and DESTINY) has been preserved.
No enemy will be able to steal our future unless we let him! T
How many times do we try to reach through to Him – we pray, we fast, we read His Word, we worship?
The enemy tries to block you, but how easy it is to come into His presence when you declare He is Lord; because he must bow down. "For greater is He that is within you, than he that is in the world."
What you need right now, whether it be your children, your spouse, your finances, your health, lift it up to Him right now, for He can make all things whole. Like the woman with

Let’s try an experiment.
Choose a number between 1 and 48. Don’t over-think it, the number should be random, as though you drew it out of a hat.
Write it down.
Next, choose some letter of the alphabet, either upper case or lower case, or choose a space instead of a letter, but make it something random, with no reason for your choice.
Write that choice down also.
Now, consider the following sentence:
Galatians 2:20 - "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me."
Satan wants us to feel alone and abandoned. We are never disconnected from the Lord because He lives in us. We don't always feel the presence of God but He is always in us.
We stay "God-inside minded." We live by and through Him. He is our wisdom, strength, peace, righteousness, and everything else we will ever need. We simply need to believe that Christ in us is the hope of gl
John 13:8 -- Peter said to Him, "You shall never wash my feet!" Jesus answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me."
John 13:9,10 -- "Then, Lord," Simon Peter replied, "not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!" Jesus answered, 'A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is clean. And you are clean....."'
Once we have received Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are bathed all over, and cleansed by His blo
2 Corinthians 5:7 - "For we walk by faith, not by sight."
Faith in God's Word is how the treasures of God's wisdom and knowledge are released. Walking by faith means building up our spirit through affirming and meditating on God's word until it becomes the "sword of the spirit."
This is the time to receive deliverance from those pains and harassments that have been hanging around you. It is time to pull strongholds down. Remember, breakthroughs happen in the unseen world before the
I give thanks to you, O God, for Your name is near. I will declare it forever and sing praises for the blood of Jesus. (Psalm 75:1,9)
My horn will be lifted up as I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. (Psalm 75:10)
As a faithful steward of God's grace, I bring whatever gift I have received to serve others to the honor and praise of God. (Psalm 76:11)
In my day of trouble I will seek the Lord. My voice rises to God, and I will cry aloud; my voice rises to God, and He
Romans 1:14 - “I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the barbarians.”
Paul was overwhelmed with the sense of his indebtedness to Jesus Christ, and he spent himself to express it. "Ye are not your own.“ Paul sold himself to Jesus Christ.
The great inspiration in Paul’s life was his view of Jesus Christ as his spiritual creditor. We need to quit praying about ourselves and be spent for others as the bondslave of Jesus. That is the meaning of being made broken bread and poured-out wi
Exodus 14:11,12 - "They said to Moses, 'Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt...It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!'"
There was something comforting about the past that the Israelites preferred at this point to the unknown dilemma of future freedom. It would seem they were so afraid of the unknown that they might even have been willing to settl
Luke 4:18 - "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me."
Believe God is bringing us to a place where we know that the Spirit of the Lord is upon us. God wants to bring us to the fact of what Jesus said in John 14: "I will ask the Father, and he will give you another helper who will be with you forever."
Because the Spirit of the Lord came upon Him who is our Head, we must see to it that we receive the same anointing and that the same Spirit is upon us. We see the manifestation of the Sp
Ephesians 3:19 AMP - "[That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!"
From deep inside your inner man springs a heartfelt prayer—that you will be filled with the amazing love of Christ; t
Matthew 5:39 - "But I say unto you, That you resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also."
These verses reveal the humiliation of being a Christian. When you are insulted, you must not only not resent it, but make it an occasion to exhibit the Son of God. To the saint personal insult becomes the occasion of revealing the incredible love of the Lord Jesus.
The teaching of the Sermon on the Mount is not -- Do your duty, but -- Do wha
Romans 12:3 - "........God has dealt to each one a measure of faith."
As children of God, we should never say, "I don't have any faith." To say this is to say that God is a liar because His Word already tells us that "God has dealt to each one a measure of faith."
Why does faith of some seem to be stronger than others?
Faith is like a body muscle -- the more we exercise our measure of faith, the bigger and stronger it grows. Each time we hear or read God's Word, we are feeding our
Colossians 2:9,10 - "For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority."
Does that sound like a description of some pitiful, poor weakling that can barely make ends meet? No!. It's a description of the child of the King.
God is moving all over the Earth. Stay with Him. Stay in the Word. Every day affirm and meditate on those scriptures that show us our inheritance in J
Ephesians 5:14-18 - "Wake up from your sleep, and arise from the dead, And Christ shall shine upon you. Live life with a due sense of responsibility, not as men who do not know the meaning of life but as those who do. Make the best use of your time, despite all the evils of these days. Don't be vague but grasp firmly what you know to be the will of the Lord."
As believers, we are instructed to live our daily lives with a sense of our unique divine DESTINY supported by goals and aims.
Philippians 3:10 - “That I may know Him.”
Do I know Him where I am today? The initiative of the saint is not towards self-actualization, but towards knowing Jesus Christ.
The spiritual saint never thinks of his life as both worldly and sacred; he sees all trials and tribulations as the means of securing the knowledge of Jesus Christ. There is a reckless abandonment about him.
The Holy Spirit is determined that we shall realize Jesus Christ in every domain of life, and He will
