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
"But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into Him in all things, which is the head, even Christ." - Ephesians 4:15
To those beginning their spiritual journey, God reveals Himself as Father. The picture is of a loving father embracing and reassuring his children. After knowing God as Father He goes on to reveal Himself as Warrior, "The LORD is a warrior..." (Exodus 15:3 NIV). The picture is of a warrior training recruits for battle. To those who know God as both Father and Warrior He rev
Romans 8:28 - "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them."
Sometimes our lives are like this. We say, "Father, it's dark. I'm stuck. Where are You in my life?" We cannot see what He is doing. But in the meantime, our Father is operating in His time zone. He says, "I am moving." -- It's "Now O'Clock"! -- It's the local time of Heaven -- It's Kingdom time.
In the book of Revelation, "
John 13:13-15 -- "Jesus said, 'You call me 'Teacher and Lord' and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet. You also should wash one another's feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.'"
John 20:21 -- "Just as the Father has sent me forth so I am sending you."
This is certainly a command of Jesus for the Body of Christ to meet the needs (both temporal and spiritual) of new believers so they may indee
He is calling many of His people out of still, dead works in 2020. He is calling them to come in to where there is the action of His Spirit. When there is action there will bring a reaction. It will be a reaction of healing, of salvation, of the baptism of His Spirit. Get ready to be a people who look for the 'reactor' of the Lord your God.
In this process, many are going to be compelled in the midnight hours to fall on their knees and ask for fresh revelation of their CALLING in Christ.
Philippians 4:6 (the Passion Translation) says, "Don't be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude..."
We need to be prayerful people in this season and saturate ourselves in those things that God is wanting us to believe for. We need to get our eyes off of what we're going through and begin to praise the Lord -- using it as a weapon to change our situation a
"Rule in the midst of your enemies" - Psalm 110:2
The Lord has provided us with powerful tools to accomplish our assignment and legislate the heavens with the ability to call forth what is not as though it were. He has given us:
the power of the Blood,
the power of His name,
the power of His Word,
the power of decree,
the power of the Holy Spirit to bring it to pass, and
angel armies assigned to God's Kingdom purposes!
He has given
"Then He said to His disciples, 'The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the Harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.'" - Matthew 9:37,38
"But His word was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, and I could not." - Jeremiah 20:9b
As the Word becomes like a burning fire in our hearts and bones, our focus is on advancing His Kingdom, and it won't be denied us because we have freely receive
James 1:21, "...The Word of Life has power to continually deliver us."
This coming year will be a year of life and that you'll catch the momentum of speaking it over people and circumstances! Not only will your words stop death, but your words will cause others to go on into abundance.
Our words must be filled with life! The people and things that you speak life over this coming year will live again! Life will spring up in places that were once dead, or at least you thought were
Philippians 2:13 - "for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure."
Isaiah 43:16,19 - "This is what the Lord says—he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, See, I am doing a new thing; Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."
Let His presence breathe over you. He makes a way where there seems to be no way, and so today He will make a way where there i
John 15:5 - “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing."
When we stay fresh in the Spirit of the Lord, we also will grow in our relationship with the Lord. The place of abiding is the place of union we find in John 15:5.
The scripture says we will be fruitful for His glory out of the substance of the supply of His unfailing anointing. His presence is also a place of genuine hunger for the Word of G
"My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him." - Psalm 62:5
When things are going in a different direction, we have to know that our identity is -- to fellowship with the Living God.
Where are you with Him this day? Are you in the fold of His arms? Are you where His hand can rest upon your head, and give you right thinking and right understanding? Are you so close that He needs only to whisper, and you feel His breath, and know exactly what He is sending
Isaiah 43:18-19 - "Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert."
God clearly warns us not to look to what was, but to fix our eyes on what is. He is about to do a new thing within our lives. Moving in a new direction can be difficult and resistant. It is easy to want to remain where we are because it's familiar, secure and
Matthew 16:18 - "On this rock I will build My church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
Where precisely are the gates of hell? Where does the devil sit in power?
The mind is the gatekeeper of the Kingdom of God. It is the place of access, transition, and power. It follows that the gates of hell are set up in people's minds. Jesus made this clear:
Matthew 16:23 - But He turned and said to Peter, "Get behind Me, satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are
Galatians 6:14 - "May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world."
Many Christians today agree that they ought not to commit the sins of which the world approves. Yet they choose to remain on friendly terms with the world, and feel at liberty to enjoy its pleasures as long as they refrain from committing open sin.
They do not realize the most dangerous source of sin is the LOVE OF THE WORLD wit
Jesus, make me the object of your compassion as I give thanks to Your holy name and glory in Your Praise -- blessed be Your Name. (Psalm 106:46-48)
Your Word, O Lord, leads me by a straight way as your lovingkindness is everlasting for the redeemed, always delivering me out of my distresses. (Psalm 107:1,2,6,7)
I am no longer a prisoner of misery and chains because You, O Lord, satisfy my hungry heart and soul with the goodness and power of your Word. (Psalm 107:9,10)
"The truth is, not that Moses gave you the bread from heaven, but that My Father gives you the real bread from heaven. The bread that God gives comes down from heaven and brings LIFE to the world......I am the bread of LIFE. Whoever comes to me shall never be hungry, and whoever believes in me shall never be thirsty." - John 6:32,33,35
It is His desire to fall fresh on you. He doesn't bring stale manna. He wants to give you freshness – fresh visions, fresh dreams, fresh anointing, fresh str
"And raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus;" - Ephesians 2:6
Many are living as if He has not risen, and they are tarrying in the garden, in the tomb. For have they not yet heard the good news? He is seated in Heavenly places interceding for His own, He Has sent His Spirit to empower them.
He is sending His Spirit so that you would be sent out with power that would be fresh from on high, for He is about to bring down the old works of
Luke 19:12,13 - "He said therefore, 'A nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and then return. Calling ten of his servants, he gave them ten minas, and said to them, ‘Engage in business until I come.’"
These servants represent the followers of Jesus. However, being a follower of Jesus is more than simply not rejecting Him. It is an active commitment to serve Him.
One servant did nothing with what his lord had given him. In nearly every parable of the K
Matthew 6:33 -- "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."
We all have things that we perceive that we need. What does God have to say to us about these concerns?
According to Matthew 6:31, He tells us, "Do not worry." God cares about us having these things. He wants us to have all these things. In fact, He wants all these things added to us. And He tells us that the way these things are added to us is by us seeking first t
John 6:63 - "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life."
The Word of God and its power to heal your body is more than just good information. It actually has LIFE in it! Jesus said so in John 6:63. That's because the Word is like a seed. Hebrews 4:12 (Amp) says it is "alive and full of power -- making it active, operative, energizing and effective..."
It actually carries within it the power to fulfill i
2 Corinthians 13:14, "The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen."
God calls us to a higher place in His Spirit where we can walk with Him and be conduits of His glory in the earth. He is not looking for perfect vessels but ones that are surrendered, filled with His Spirit, and will follow Him where He leads.
God is always wanting to pour more of His Spirit and presence into us. One of the most important th
"That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His CALLING........" - Ephesians 1:17,18
Today is the day that He pours fresh oil into your understanding. He does not want you left to your own understanding. He wants His understanding to bring you under Him, to stand up in Him. So that no matter what happens –
Hebrews 3:7 - "Wherefore, even as the Holy Spirit says, TODAY, if you shall hear His voice, harden not your hearts."
The Holy Spirit says, TODAY. What does this mean?
God is the Eternal One. With Him there is no yesterday or tomorrow; what we call past and future are with Him an ever-present NOW. His life is an ever-blessed, never-ending TODAY.
Jesus has become the author of eternal salvation -- that is, a salvation which bears the character of eternity; its chief mark is that it
