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
As You Allow Him to Change You, He will Change Your Circumstances.
The season of depression, confusion, lack, and sinful cycles is over.
Don't look back -- Don't bring up the past -- It is under the Blood of Christ.
Just as your sins have been forgiven forgive others.
Let go of the bitterness and the regrets.
Crucify your ego by going deeper into Him.
Release the anger. He will work everything for good.
Get ready to move into new realms of His glory. Every time
Colossians 3:2,3 - "Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God."
If you think like the world thinks, you will act like the world acts. So control your thoughts bringing them into obedience to the Scriptures. Program your mind with the Word of God.
The Word is spirit and is life. Don't let Satan deceive you into sacrificing the glory of God in your life for a few moments of self-indulgence and sin. Re
"that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, that the Christ may dwell, through faith, in your hearts, being rooted and founded in love, - Ephesians 3:16,17
As believers, we are rooted and grounded in His magnificent love (Ephesians 3:17). We have courage, the depth of which is confidence in the Lord. Today we declare that we will "Trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not unto our own understandin
Isaiah 54:2 - “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your ropes and strengthen your stakes."
When you don't think there is more to where you currently are in God's purpose for your life, you become limited. You think this right here -- all I see -- is it. This type of thinking keeps you from exploring and discovering. It keeps you from stretching yourself and dreaming about other possibilities.
Philippians 3:20 - "For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;"
As Christians, we are wonderfully privileged to have dual citizenship. We are citizens of earth and citizens of Heaven all at the same time! Many believe we receive our Heavenly citizenship only after we die. The Bible, however, illustrates how connected to Heaven we are while living on earth.
• When we pray on earth, our spirit manifests in H
"He that believeth on me....out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." - John 7:38
The very life of the risen Christ in us is moving us to do His will. We are partakers of the divine nature to manifest the life of Jesus to the world.
"Others mocking said, 'these men are full of new wine.'" - Acts 2:13
"New wine" - a new order, new inspiration, new manifestation, a new creation. It is God's mind to fill us with that wine, to make us ready to burst forth with new ri
Hebrews 4:16 - "So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most."
When we sin, we don't need to punish ourselves, because Jesus already took our punishment and He now offers us His mercy. He is extending his mercy to you right now, but you must believe it and receive it in order for it to benefit you.
Don't turn away because you know you don't deserve it. Receive it and let it make you
"If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?" - Jeremiah 12:5 NIV
Have you been stumbling? Have you been stumbling with the footmen? Well the Lord is wanting to upgrade you to the horses. It's time for you to compete with the horses! The Lord is moving you up from running with the footmen to now racing with the horses.
God is about to brin
Philippians 3:16 - "I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."
Paul spoke about the desire to attain. There is no standing still. We are renewed by the Spirit. We never get into a new place until we come out of the old one (Genesis 12:1-4).
We must see revelation of God's purpose for our life and learn about who we are in Christ and our right standing with God. We can never be satisfied to stay where we are spiritually, for the truth
Ephesians 2:8 - "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God."
Paul says that grace saves us "through faith." Faith unlocks the power of grace and releases it to function in our world--and faith itself is another gift of God. The difference between both gifts are, the grace-gift must be activated by the faith-gift.
1. Believe that God is "rich in mercy".
2. We must accept as true that God loves us with "great
James 3:17 - "But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy."
As we speak the tender mercies of the Word over a problem, our faith begins to rise up within us. We then release words of faith and plant seeds of power. These seeds then begin to grow up and become greater than the problems.
They begin to bear fruit -- fruit of deliverance, healing, miracles, love, joy, and peace. Soul
Galatians 1:16 - "To reveal his Son in me, that I might present Him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood."
Many believers have lost the glory because they have been taken up with the natural. If we are going to accomplish in the Spirit the thing God has purposed for us in 2020, we can never turn again to the flesh.
If we believers are to go forth and fulfill God's PURPOSE for our life, the Holy Spirit must be constantly filling us and moving
Proverbs 3:5 - "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding."
Your self-nature is overactive, impulsive, and always striving for something just outside your reach. If you give up all those things that provoke your curiosity and set your mind spinning, you will have more than enough time to spend with God.
God, working within your spirit, produces a calm and faithful heart that the world cannot touch.
Pray within yourself all day long. Live in
"For our God is a consuming fire." - Hebrews 12:29
God's voice dwells in the midst of the fire! Fire consumes the sacrifice, and in Romans 12:1-2 we are told to surrender our bodies and renew our minds. As we lay our flesh upon His altar, we are consumed!
Mark 9:49 - "For everyone will be salted with fire."
We are called to burn for Him and be voices of awakening. The Father desires to set regions ablaze with holy fire, but it will take surrendered ones who have been in H
James 4:4 -- "You adulterous people, don't you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God."
When you fall out of love with God you have to find movies, you have to find sports, you have to find other worldly things.
James calls it spiritual adultery to sleep with these things all week because there is no true intimacy with the Holy Spirit.
The very point of the
"Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;" - Hebrews 10:23
There is supernatural power released in the Word of God through declaration.
Jesus said (Mark 11:23) in the letter to the Hebrews (Hebrews 10:23) that we are encouraged to hold fast our confession. Once we have released our faith in the command of faith or the prayer of faith, we must continue to believe God is working regardless of any visible change.
As the Spir
2 Corinthians 5:17 - "All things have become new."
1 Corinthians 3:23 - "you are Christ's and Christ is God's."
God means for us to walk in this royal way. Jesus left us the responsibility of allowing Him to bring forth through us the greater works (John 14:12). If we do not step into God's purpose for our life, it is a tragedy.
God is waiting for us to act. Jesus lived a life of perfect activity. There is no standing still. "As He is, so are we in this world." (1 Jo
Revelation 22:2: "In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations."
The winds of change are blowing over the Church right now. God is breathing transition over much of the Body of Christ.
If you are in a season where you feel extremely restless, it could be that God is preparing your heart for transition. You may feel t
Genesis 1:26 - "Then God said, 'Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.'"
God created you and commanded you to dominate the earth. God wouldn't have made that demand if you couldn't do it.
You have the potential to dominate the earth because God placed within every human being the ability to dom
"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
1 John 2:27 - "As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you,"
According to the scriptures, before you were born again, you were without the Anointed One (Jesus). If you were without the Anointed One you were also without the anointing.
But now, since you are one with Christ, you are in the anointing of Jesus. The anointing is available to you in every situation you face to destroy every yoke of bondage. The anointing of God is God on flesh doing those thin

The First Two Mass Resurrections of the Dead
John 5:25 “Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour comes, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and the ones hearing shall live.”
“Hearing” here is meant according to the Hebrew verb shâmăh, which implies, besides hearing, also receiving and obeying the message heard. Th
John 14:30 - ".......for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me."
Pauperhood is relegated to the children of a lesser god. It is the condition of slaves who have yet to discover their freedom on the other side of the river of baptism and find themselves still captured by the dark prince of torture and torment. He is the one who assigns them to a life of poverty, pain, and depression through a diabolical play of illusion. He hopes to conceal their true identity forever.
