SECRETS TO GOAL ATTAINMENT
ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN GOALS
~ A MIRACLE PODCAST PRODUCTION ~

Action is the process of doing something to achieve an aim. Actions speak louder than goals because what one does means more than what one plans. Goals are good, but without action they are infertile and sterile . . . they are uninspired and uninventive. I believe in setting goals, and I have taught the importance of goal setting for 50 years. However, there are times in your life and ministry where you will have to FORCE YOUR SELF to take . . . or possibly, maintain . . . action. That is what this podcast teaching is about!

I want you to burn the following scriptures into your mind:

“Be ye strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak: for your work shall be rewarded.” [2 Chronicles 15:7]

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. [1 Corinthians 15:58]

“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” [Galatians 6:9]

There is a time to rest, there is a time to heal, there is a time to reflect, there is a time to regroup . . . however, let God lead you in these times. Be led of the Spirit in these times just as you are in the days of battle. Never quit! As we discuss in the book The Art and Principles of Christian Warfare, we only regroup so that we may advance in battle more powerfully and effectively.

Recently I have been studying the life of King David again. I felt as though I were with him. I almost cried when reading and reflecting upon the consequences of his sin. It is plain to see where David’s problem started:

“And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem.” [2 Samuel 11:1]

Lust, adultery, murder, fourfold judgment on his family: these were the results of NOT going to war at the time of year when the other kings went to battle. In this teaching, Goal Attainment: Actions Speak Louder than Goals,” I am going to help you make sure that NEVER happens in your life.

It is interesting to notice that things turned around for King David after HE turned around. In 2 Samuel 18:1-4 we read that, “David numbered the people that were with him, and set captains of thousands and captains of hundreds over them.” David then split the warriors up into three parts under the leadership of his top three generals, and said to the people, “I will surely go forth with you myself also.” But the people said to him, “You shall not go forth (with us) . . . for you are worth ten thousand of us . . . it is better that you aid us from the city.” And David answered, “What seems best to you I will do.”

Notice that David’s intent was to go to battle with his army; this is what is important: the intent of the heart. He had learned his lesson the hard way. Never stop fighting, at least in the intent of your heart. You must MAINTAIN a “warrior” mentality. You must have spiritual and mental control of the situation at all times. Even in times of “R and R” (rest and recreation) you must maintain a warrior attitude and be listening to God for instructions about the future battle(s).

Your job is to constantly appropriate victory through faith as you listen to and obey the voice of the Spirit for the glory of God.

YOU CAN NOT STOP FIGHTING . . . EVER!
IF YOU DON’T QUIT . . . YOU WILL WIN,
BUT IF YOU QUIT, YOU CAN’T WIN!

This is a message for many of God’s People. Is this YOUR experience? You …

Have not fulfilled your heart’s desires in your life’s calling (including ministry desires);

Are not enjoying your work (including ministry); or,

Have been (or are being) beaten up by the enemy (and, sometimes by God’s children).

Whenever asked about the secret of his success, real estate developer and billionaire, Donald Trump, always answers, “Do what you enjoy!”

It’s true. We must be excited about our work . . . especially Christians and those in God’s work.

The purpose of this teaching is to both CHALLENGE you and HELP you:

Enjoy your work;

Do what you want; and,

Maintain victory so that you can always take action.

Be the person you always wanted to be . . . make it happen!

King Solomon said, “There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul [enjoy] good in his labor. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.” [Ecclesiastes 2:24]

Many people are “stale” and not on the cutting edge because they do NOT enjoy their work. They love God but are lacking the anointing to be a “new sharp threshing instrument.” [Isaiah 41:15] The enemy’s job is to get you discouraged . . . and then to lose your vision.

If this describes you, I have some good news for you. If you will do what I teach you in this message, things will begin to change. Do some fasting, get alone and seek God. Then, in the Spirit, tear down the walls that are limiting you. Take your authority and BELIEVE GOD for the things you once desired! Get back on track. Don’t give up and don’t take LESS than the best! Let me repeat that:

Fast, get alone, seek God;
Tear down the walls that are limiting you;
Take your authority;
Believe God for the things you once desired;
Get back on track;
Don’t give up; and,
Don’t take less than the best!

Remember, if you don’t quit, you’ll win … but if you quit, you can’t win!

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) 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.

[3] Take time to dream.

As we studied in the Introductory Module, 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.

In the first part of the book, The Art and Principles of Christian Warfare, I ask the question, “How long has it been since you’ve asked your Heavenly Father some childlike questions?” Questions like:

What can you do to reach every nation and tribe for Messiah Yeshua?
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?
What do you [God] like about me [yourself] the most?

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 Christ.

[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.

Speak,

See,

Thank God,

Receive.

[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 in not only lack of creativity, but also “inbreeding” in the Body of Christ. Study more here >>> about Imitational Faith.

Be yourself . . . 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.

[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? Ask yourself:

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 that 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 health, your ministry . . . 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. To help you with strategies for success and goal attainment in the LORD’s work (or any work whose goal is to help build God’s Kingdom) I recommend the following book: The Art of Christian Warfare: Rules of Engagement.

___________________________________________________

HOW TO MULTIPLY YOUR WORK FOR THE LORD

Here are four (4) time tested and proven methods for multiplying your outreach for the LORD. How your synagogue or church can reach the WHOLE world for Messiah:

1. Train others – The ‘Ringstrake’ Principle.

2. Use the Media.

3. Have a ‘distribution point’.

4. Pray for ‘an anointing of multiplication’.

TRAIN OTHERS

Re-study How To Win The World For Messiah. Go over (review) the Seven Keys. Never forget them. It is one thing to KNOW something powerful; but it is another thing to USE the knowledge. Wisdom is “knowledge in action”! The Seven Keys should be used every day!

Whether your ministry is that of an apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, teacher, or Christian worker… Yeshua said: “teach (disciple) all nations”. If you closely follow Jesus through the Gospels, you will be convinced that there should be a “school by every bush”! Find some people to teach, and start teaching; then multiply what you’re doing by using the Seven Keys.

Now… get ready to learn something NEW: The ‘Ringstrake’ Principle. It works powerfully! Stated simply, the ‘Ringstrake’ Principle says this: “whatever the people you disciple SEE you do for God, THEY WILL DO.

If the people you train see you preaching in the open-air like the Apostles in the early church, then they will know to do the same. They will also KNOW they CAN do the same! If the people you train see you praying for the crippled and SEE arms or legs growing, they will KNOW to do the same; they will also KNOW they CAN do the same!

Study Genesis Chapter 30, verses 25-43. The people you train will CONCEIVE in their minds – a vision will be “birthed” – as they SEE Christ work through you. This is why it is good to spend time with the people you are training, as the Spirit leads.

USE THE MEDIA

Study the following teaching at the realmiracles website, Using The Media To Preach Messiah. Let God multiply His work through you through the use of literature, tapes, videos, websites, comics, and any other form of media that can be used by the Holy Spirit. Remember, the media is to be used to “teach all nations;” it should reflect and magnify Christ… not man!

HAVE A ‘DISTRIBUTION POINT’

You need:

1. A base of operations.

2. A place where people can contact you.

3. A place from where you can distribute, ship, or disseminate the Word of God in the various forms of media you will produce.

These three may or may not be at the same place. In this Lesson Plan we will only discuss #3: a distribution point.

You need to have a ‘distribution point’ (or an address) that people can depend on – and that YOU can depend on! It should be permanent, unless God changes it. This is your link to millions of people (and possibly, in the next ten years, to billions). Millions of people and multitudes of nations are “hanging” in the balance depending upon the decisions you make and the Word of God you ship or mail to them every day!

Your distribution point does not have to be elaborate or expensive, but it should be efficient and practical. You have a serious calling from God and you must be a good steward!

“Who then is faithful and wise servant, whom his lord has made ruler over his household, to give them meat [strong Word, not milk] in due season.” “Blessed is that servant, who when his lord comes, shall find so doing.” [Matthew 24:45]

PRAY FOR ‘AN ANOINTING OF MULTIPLICATION’

Lay hands on and pray over EVERYTHING and EVERYONE you send out: Ministers and workers; literature; tapes; films; prayer cloths. Ask God to put His power on them. Ask God for the “apostolic power of Christ” to invade the earth through them. Pray for MIRACLES to magnify Christ.

Pray for people to be saved, healed, delivered, baptized in the Spirit, prospered, and sent out to do the work of Messiah. Ask God to raise up a great Holy Ghost church in every village and neighborhood of the earth … and a great Holy Ghost witness in every house, home, or family of the earth through the WORK and the PEOPLE you send out! Believe!!

Thirty (30) years ago Apostle Prince Handley asked God for a confirmation about a piece of literature he had written and was to be sending out. It was Lesson Four, How to Receive The Power of God, in the Bible Studies course. He wanted God to show him if he should include this lesson in the series and received three (3) confirmations within about one week.

The very first person who received that lesson was baptized in the Holy Spirit the day they received it in the mail. Then a Jewish man wrote from New York and said, “You wouldn’t believe what came out of my mouth when Jesus baptized me in the Holy Spirit” (as a result of the lesson). Thirdly, a man wrote saying that as soon as he took his lesson out of the envelope he read one sentence and was knocked down by a strange force and another language came out of his mouth!

“Believe! All things are possible to him that believes.”
[Mark 9:23]

If you are not available to lay hands on the materials – or the people – then commission others to do it. Lay your hands on them and pray over them so the apostolic power of Christ will flow through them. At times, when Apostle Handley has not been able to be present for an ordination service in a distant place, God would instruct him to send a prayer cloth over which he had prayed, and to have the prayer cloth laid on the minister.

If the Holy Spirit can supply the resurrection power of Messiah to heal in this manner (Acts 19:11-12), then He surely can impart the gifts of the Spirit and enablement for ministry in the same manner. These should be “special” cases, however, because the normal Scriptural pattern would be to personally lay hands on those being ordained and sent out.

Ask God for ‘an anointing of multiplication’! The kingdom of Heaven is like leaven (or, yeast): it grows and spreads. Jesus still multiplies bread, and He can multiply the work, the workers, and the Word of God!

Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai.

Your friend and brother,
Prince Handley

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: 5 SECRETS OF MILITARY STRATEGY
SUB-TITLE: ACCURATE FULFILLMENT OF THE LORD’S MANDATE


The other day I was reading some ministry results of a wonderful brother in Messiah. My first thought was, “God is using him so mightily . . . he is reaching so many people for Messiah!” And . . . he has NO synagogue or church support.

Like most of us in God’s work, he was one of the most unlikely prospects for God to use. Like you, and like me, people never guessed he would one day become a believer in Yeshua! When I reflected upon how God is using him, I thought, “What a great reward he will have in Heaven!”

I thought, “God, he is doing so much for You.” After a while the Lord prompted me, and The Holy Spirit reminded me that I was blessed to have part in his Christian growth; and to help disciple him to become a powerful follower of Yeshua. He took our Free Bible Studies course and we corresponded and communicated at times.

That is exactly what I shared in The Apostles Newsletter a few weeks ago: the disciples you teach should be used more greatly than you are. They should be disciples of MESSIAH and NOT disciples of men … IF you are doing your job right.

At the University of Excellence, of which I am President and Regent, we study five (5) secrets of military strategy for the accomplishment … and the continuance … of successful mission:

• Vision to reach the world for Messiah.

• Logistics and starting new synagogues and churches.

• Anointing of multiplication.

• Mission parameters.

• Resurrection and a new vision

VISION TO REACH THE WORLD FOR CHRIST

I want to teach you something that will help you win the world for Christ!

If you could win 1,000 people to Messiah every day
, how long do you think it would take to evangelize the whole world? At this time, the population of the world is about six (6) billion people. It would take you 16,427 years to reach every person (even at 1,000 every day!).

However, if you would lead only one person each year to Christ, and would really train them, here’s what would happen:

At the end of one year there would be two of you to take the “Good News” to others. If each of you would lead one person to Christ that next year, there would be four of you at the end of the second year to go tell the “Good News”. At this rate, it would only take you a little over 32 years to reach the rest of the world! (Even if the population increases to 8.5 billion, it would take only one extra year, or 33 years.)

This is why Jesus said, “Go, then to all peoples of the world and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And remember! I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”

Now, here’s how to train a disciple: Ask God to lead you to someone who really wants to grow in the Lord (it may be someone you lead to Christ or someone who already knows Jesus.) Take them “under your wing” (like a bird does her babies) and pour your life, as well as the Word of God, into them.

You will have to “live” the life you are teaching about. Take them preaching on the streets or witnessing at the market with you. Teach them how to lead others to Christ, and to baptize them in water. Their training may last from one week, or until Jesus comes back!

Sometimes you may want to train more than one person at a time. However, never get so busy that you do not have time to spend with each person privately. When a person you are training starts training others for Christ (it may be the first week), then spend some time for “feedback”. That is, let that person discuss with you about the people they are training: get “feedback” about progress or problems, and try to answer their questions. Pray with them!

Be sure to tell the people you are teaching that Jesus said, “The field is the world!” Not just their village or city: but every nation, tribe, tongue, and dialect. Pray that God will send out workers to the nations … and be willing to go yourself. Teach them to do the same.

Obtain a map of the world (and of your country). Lay your hands on the different countries and cities and pray for them. Ask God:

To pour out the Holy Spirit on them;

To send out Christian workers to them; and,

To raise up “Spirit-filled” churches in them and all over the world.

While praying for cities and nations, always “bind” the devil and his demons and cast them out in Jesus’ name. Then, “loose” the Holy Spirit into the cities and nations! Jesus said, “Teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.” This includes his teaching about love, repentance, healing, forgiveness, casting out demons, prayer, baptism in the Holy Spirit, and our “one-ness” with other believers in Jesus.

Some of the people you train may be from other countries (students or visitors). Or, some of those you train may someday go to other countries to study, tour, or work. They will then be able to preach the Gospel there. This is another way you will be reaching nations!

Finally, teach the ones you are training to teach the people they teach “to teach others.” (Notice the four groups, or “families,” of disciples in 2 Timothy 2:2.) The first family is YOU: you are a disciple, or a “follower,” of Christ. The next family is the person you are teaching to be a “follower” of Christ. Notice something very important: the four families are NOT your disciples, they are Christ’s!

Read this message again, and again, and again. There are “seven keys” to help YOU win the world for Christ!

LOGISTICS AND STARTING NEW SYNAGOGUES AND CHURCHES

The provision and supply necessary for ongoing ministry growth will come about as new synagogues and churches are raised up. After the process of true biblical discipleship – making disciples of Messiah and NOT of men – is established, along with a vision of reaching the world for Messiah, the next step is to establish synagogues or churches. The people, the money, the resources for current and subsequent ministry to the community and the world will emanate from the local synagogues or churches established. Tithes and offerings will help in material and financial support. Each leader must be honest and ethical in their allocation of resources, and thereby be an example for those to whom they serve.

There are basically three (3) ways to start synagogues and churches:

1. Start cell groups, OR house churches;

2. Visit neighborhoods;

3. Hold public miracle and healing meetings.

START CELL GROUPS

Start cell groups, or home Bible studies, from an existing church. They will then be centers in each neighborhood or community for people to come for Bible study and prayer, and from which new churches can be raised up.

VISIT NEIGHBORHOODS AND BARRIOS


Visit the surrounding neighborhood
. This is the probably the most effective and can also be used in conjunction with a cell group. Get people interested in the vision God has given you. Meet together for prayer, fellowship, and Bible study.

Win souls in the neighborhood or local community where you will have your synagogue or church – START there first! Visit and pray for the sick. Baptize converts and then TRAIN them:

• To win others.

• To study the Scriptures.

• To fast and pray.

• To tithe and give offerings.

• To follow the principles described above in “Vision To reach the World for Christ.”

Impart a vision of the world. Teach them to enjoy Messiah Jesus and their work with Him!!!

Pray daily for God to:

• Open the hearts of people;

• Pour out His Spirit upon the area where you are (or will be)working for Him; and,

• Lead you to people who are seeking for God and His salvation.

Look for needs to meet:

• In people;

• In the community; and,

• In the government.

Go door-to-door within a reasonable distance of the synagogue or church you’re starting and ask people if there is anything for which they would like you to pray. Tell them you’re meeting in about an hour at a certain location (give them the address). Go back in a week and follow up on them. Note: they may also have sick people in the house that they want you to pray for.

Tell people: “If you can find 10 other families who want to start a church, then organize a meeting in your home (or one of their homes) and invite these other 10 families. I will then come and tell them about the church we’re starting. At the same time, we will minister to the people’s needs, if they desire. Expect miracles!”


WARNING:

Never go to be a new head rabbi at a synagogue or pastor a church that someone else started unless the people at large give you complete control before you start. You will just be taking over someone else’s problems! Also, when miracles start the previous leaders will become jealous. Start NEW WORKS where the anointing is honored and God can get the glory!!


TESTIMONY:

Here’s a testimony from a Pastor and General Overseer who followed the instruction described above for starting new churches. “The lessons and the questions are the best I have had in my life, especially since I started preaching the Gospel under the power of the Holy Spirit. Please help me to learn more and be a better worker for the Lord. With the lesson well studied, God has started blessing the work here. Prayer cells have sprung up in all places. God is adding souls to His kingdom.” [Bishop Harrison]



Do diligence to follow the steps in this lesson like Bishop Harrison and God will do MIRACLES for you!


HOLD PUBLIC MIRACLE AND HEALING MEETINGS

There is probably no more effective way to start a new synagogue or church, especially in unevangelized areas, than by means of public meetings: both indoors and outdoors. Here is a proven and successful format for holding such meetings:

1. Start each meeting with 30 minutes of singing and “selected” testimony.

2. Preach 20 to 40 minutes.

3. Begin message by announcing: “We are going to pray in a few minutes and God is going to heal the sick.”

4. During the message, tell the people WHO Jesus is and WHAT He did. Tell them:

“I wouldn’t ask you to believe in a dead god! Jesus Christ is ALIVE!”

“Since Jesus is alive, He will do what He did when He lived on earth before!”

“If He does – and heals you – will you serve Him the rest of your life?”

(Before you pray) “If Jesus heals you, how many will come up and tell of it?”

5. After the message, pray for the sick to be healed. Do NOT go out into the crowd and do NOT pray for individuals at this time, but pray for the crowd “as a whole” from the place where you have been preaching. (Let God do His work!)

6. (During prayer) Tell the people, “Now, begin to praise God for healing you.”

7. (After prayer) Tell the people, “Now do what you couldn’t do before.”

8. Ask for those who have been healed to come and testify. Make sure you have workers who are trained to examine testimonies.

Eliminate those testimonies which aren’t for real or don’t glorify Christ. Train the workers to bring to the front at once ONLY miracles of healing. Also, make sure you have workers who are trained in crowd control.

Don’t let the devil bring confusion to your meeting at this point.

NOTES:

A) The first day of the meeting let God heal a few. Then go out to the neighborhood or villages and tell them what God has been doing; invite them into the meetings.

B) The second day of the meetings, and thereafter, pray for specific cases, such as the deaf and blind, as God leads. You may want certain cases to come to the platform for prayer (where you are ministering). This way the crowd can see the miracles. Do ONLY what the Spirit says and finish when He tells you to!

C) Always meet with your workers before the meeting. Review the previous days meeting and pray for the current one. Ask God for the anointing of the Holy Spirit and pray for unity.

D) Establish a synagogue or church from the new believers (baptize them). Make plans to teach them regularly and to train them.

SUGGESTIONS:

Read and study “Health and Healing” (Parts 1 through 5) in the Archives of The Apostles Newsletter (September 15 through September 29, 2002). Also, read and memorize “How To Be Healed” in the Archives (June 28, 2002).

For a sample healing message to preach, go to: http://www.realmiracles.com/healmessage.htm

ANOINTING OF MULTIPLICATION

Lay hands on and pray over EVERYTHING and EVERYONE you send out or produce: ministers and workers; DVD’s, literature; podcasts, social media postings (MySpace, Twittter, etc.), YouTube videos, films; mp3 files; websites, prayer cloths. Ask God to put His power on them. Ask God for the “apostolic power of Christ” to invade the earth through them. Pray for MIRACLES to magnify Christ.

Pray for people to be saved, healed, delivered, baptized in the Spirit, prospered, and sent out to do the work of Messiah Yeshua. Ask God to raise up a great Holy Spirit synagogue or church in every village and neighborhood of the earth … and a great Holy Spirit witness in every house, home, or family of the earth through the WORK and the PEOPLE you send out! Believe!!

Thirty (30) years ago I asked God for a confirmation about a piece of literature I had written and was to be sending out. It was Lesson Four, “How To Receive the Power of God” in the Free Bible Studies course. I wanted God to show me if I should include this lesson in the series and I received three (3) confirmations within about one week.

The very first person who received that lesson was baptized in the Holy Spirit the day they received it in the mail. Then a Jew wrote from New York and said, “You wouldn’t believe what came out of my mouth when Jesus baptized me in the Holy Spirit” (as a result of the lesson). Thirdly, another man wrote saying that as soon as he took his lesson out of the envelope he read one sentence and was knocked down by a strange force and another language came out of his mouth.

“Believe! All things are possible to him that believes.”
[Mark 9:23]

If you are not available to lay hands on the materials – or the people – then commission others to do it. Lay your hands on them and pray over them so the apostolic power of Christ will flow through them. At times, when I have not been able to be present for an ordination service in a distant place, God would instruct me to send a prayer cloth over which I had prayed, and to have the prayer cloth laid on the minister.

If the Holy Spirit can supply the resurrection power of Christ to heal in this manner (Acts 19:11-12), then He surely can impart the gifts of the Spirit and enablement for ministry in the same manner. These should be “special” cases, however, because the normal Scriptural pattern would be to personally lay hands on those being ordained and sent out.

Ask God for ‘an anointing of multiplication’!
The kingdom of Heaven is like leaven (or, yeast): it grows and spreads. Yeshua (Jesus) still multiplies bread, and He can multiply the work, the workers, and the Word of God!

MISSION PARAMETERS

Be led by the Spirit of God! Follow the plain teachings of Jesus. Preach and teach the simple Gospel, apart from which there is no other gospel [1 Corinthians 15:1-5]. Obey the commission of Jesus in Matthew 28 and Mark 16. Adhere to the “Apostles’ Creed”. Use the pastoral writings of Paul and Peter and John as examples for church order and discipline and obey the Word of God as revealed in the Holy Bible.

A three-fold cord is not easily broken. Buildings designed in triangulation or with three-sided segments are stronger. Jesus sent out his apostles to:

1. Preach and teach;

2. Heal; and

3. Cast out demons.

Whether you are involved in ministry to governments, to the homeless, to the military … on television or the Internet … keep your ministry “triangulated” in balance with Jesus’ authority that he gave you: to preach; to heal; and, to cast out demons!

Then you won’t have to worry about false doctrines . . . because no one can copy the works God is doing through you. The Lord will confirm the Word of God you preach with signs following . . .and people who are really seeking God will come to the TRUTH! The cults have all have at least one of the three errors (if not all three!).

The cults and false religions teach:

1. Jesus was NOT God in human flesh;

2. You can work your way to Heaven;

3. Hell is not real (or, if it is, it only lasts for a short period).

No false teaching in the world can do all three … present the Good News, heal the sick, and cast out demons!
Especially like you are doing when you’re anointed with LOVE! False teaching is usually “lop-sided” with emphasis on either of two large errors: either you’re saved by your works only; or you can sin all you want to and get away with it!

“Faith without works is dead.”
[James 2:14-26]

“For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith which works by love.”
[Galatians 5:6]

RESURRECTION AND A NEW VISION


If you are used in creative, powerful, and productive works by God then I have a warning for you. Just about the time you put the “stamp” on your ministry and declare “Mission Accomplished” there will come a time of discouragement. It is nothing more than a demonic attack assigned by Satan to discourage you, to get you to slow down, to get you to lose excitement, to get you to think you can’t do any more great works, and to get you to quit!

Immediately after the victory for which you have fought, prayed, and believed in faith, will subtly appear one of your most dangerous attacks from the enemy. It will NOT be like the attack(s) BEFORE your conquest: to discourage you, to make you afraid, to cause loss of integrity, loss of a loved one, or loss of possessions. All of which attacks you can defeat . . . and withstand . . . by living holy and living a life of faith and trust in God.

But this attack will be so delicate or precise as to be difficult to analyze or describe. You will not be capable, without discernment from God, of making fine distinctions as to the source of the attack. It will be covert and delicately complex. There will be put in place clever and indirect means by the enemy to achieve your downfall: spiritually, socially, materially, physically, and mentally . . . in that order.

Read and prayerfully study The Apostles Newsletters titled “What to Do After the Victory” (Parts A and Part B) published September 14 and 21, 2003. Login to The Apostles Group and you will find them in the Archives.

This two-part newsletter was written to instruct you as to how to offset this kind of attack, and to guard against it; also, to augment and solidify your recent victory, and to go on to higher and more productive accomplishments.

King Solomon tells us in the Book of Ecclesiastes that a threefold cord is not easily broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:12) There are three things you can do to assure your maintenance of the victory and your own personal integrity. They are as follows:

1. Guard Against Pride

2. Monitor the Victory

3.  Plan for the Future

After your victory is the time the enemy will do his best to allure you with:

• Fame;

• Fortune;

• Lust; and,

• Deception of any kind

Don’t let your guard down! You are at your weakest point of defense right after your victory:

• Rest;

• Stay under the anointing;

• Plan, stretch out in faith; and,

• Start implementing your plans for the NEXT victory. It may be related to the harvest of your present (recent) victory.

Rest for a short period. Use this time to reflect and give thanks to God, and those people who assisted you, for the victory. Pray God’s blessing on those who assisted you!

Stay in the Word of God and prayer. Stay under the anointing. Use this period of rest to listen to God for the “skeletal” outline of your NEXT project. Receive your plans from the Spirit. Praise and thank Him in faith for the next victory!

Don’t wait for everything to be perfect before you implement your next assignment. Don’t wait until all the conditions are right before you start. Count the cost, but use faith. You can refine after you implement.

God is getting ready to use you MORE GREATLY than ever before! He has given you the “eye of the tiger” . . . you will never be taken captive by the enemy. You will be stronger and more productive for the kingdom of God. The Master will say to you: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant; enter into the joy of the Lord.”

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

HOW TO MAINTAIN A POSITION OF SPIRITUAL POWER

One of the definitions of power is “the capacity to influence other people or the course of events.” In my last teaching titled “Decision, Determination, and Destiny” (the story of Ruth) we saw that Ruth was propelled from poverty to status as a world class influence because of her willingness:

1. To change;

2. To learn; and,

3. To receive.

Once she obtained her position of power as the wife of Boaz, she maintained it and ultimately became a member of Royal Ancestry: it was through her seed line that the Messiah Jesus was born. Through her progeny … because of her decision to make major changes … every person on Planet Earth has the decision making ability to choose to go to Heaven and live with God forever.

Question: What are you doing with the talents, skills, and abilities which Almighty God has given you? What are you doing in your position of power . . . or ARE YOU in a position of power?

When I’m in my home area I walk out in the mornings on the patio and see some of the most beautiful buildings in the world: great challenges of engineering, architecture, and construction; inspiring and aesthetic grandeur. I think of how God gave men the skills, the wisdom, and the materials to make such awesome objects of beauty. How much more excellent is the universe which God created … and how wonderful the human body which God created?

I then think about the buildings, as beautiful as they are, being in a CLOSED SYSTEM. Then I see the trees near the buildings: gorgeous palm trees, even evergreen trees, and also some deciduous trees. And, I realize the new trees – while growing – are in an OPEN SYSTEM.

Once the last weldment, the last wall board, the finish trim are in place … a building is then in a CLOSED SYSTEM. It starts the process of deterioration, and through the years needs maintenance … possible restoration … until it has seen its last days.

A fetus in the womb of its mother is in an OPEN STATE. It is developing and growing, but as soon as it parts the womb it is then on a path of limited number of years and becomes a CLOSED SYSTEM.

The Bible tells us that our average life span is 70 to 80 years; of course, some people – like my mother – live much longer … and of course, some people live much shorter. We should at the least expect this average longevity and believe God for it.

“The days of our years are threescore and ten; and if by reason of strength they are fourscore years, yet is their strength labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off and we fly away.”
[Psalm 90:10]

This Psalm, of course, was written under the Old Covenant (or, Testament). Thank God, when we know Yeshua ha Meshiach (Jesus the Messiah) personally we can experience JOY every day of our life, even in times of trial and heartbreak. We can LEARN how to create an open system … that will develop from and during the closed system of this mortal life on earth … through parallel goals that will endure throughout eternity.

We hear a lot of talk today about having an “exit plan,” especially with reorganization in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan. It is important for us to have an exit plan. Our exit plan should be EQUAL TO OR GREATER THAN our long term goal(s). We should also have parallel goals: one of which is consistently the same. The goal which is always the same is this: to honorably represent Messiah and give glory to God.

The other parallel goal will be determined when we spend time with God in His Word and in prayer as we RECEIVE His will for our lives. If we are in the PERFECT CENTER OF HIS WILL, then what we do … God does!

When the children of Israel were at the edge of the Red Sea, being chased by Pharaoh and 600 of his chosen chariots of war, God told Moses, “But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide it; and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the middle of the sea.” [Exodus 14:16]

However, in verse 21 we read, “Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea: and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided.”

After you have heard from God, you have to take the “step of faith.” When the children of Israel were at the Jordan River ready to go into the promised land, the water did not part until the priests put their feet into the water.

Other than finding Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) as your personal savior, here’s one of the greatest things you can learn in life:

IF YOUR PLAN FITS INTO GOD’S PLAN …

………. YOU WILL HAVE GOD’S FAITH …

……………….. AND GOD’S FAITH ALWAYS WORKS!

That’s why some people never fail permanently. They may hit the pit 10 or 20 times, but they always rise up victoriously! “For a just man falls seven times, and rises up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.” [Proverb 24:16]

If you are not in an open state at this time, then ask yourself: “Why?” Don’t blame someone else. If it is a problem of sin, then pray and ask God to forgive you. Repent … turn from the situation or practice that is keeping you from spiritual growth and development. If you do not know yeshua as your Lord … then pray and ask Jesus to take control of your life … to save you and lead you the rest of your time here on earth.

Develop the habit of asking the Holy Spirit to teach you something from the Bible every day that will help you in learning about your two parallel goals:

GOAL #1 – To honorably represent Messiah and give glory to God.

GOAL #2 – To accomplish the GREAT WORK for which you were created; the thing that is the DEEP DESIRE within your heart.

Once we have established a position of spiritual power, we need to maintain it. As in football, basketball, baseball, rugby, or any sport … our best defense is a good offense! Build relationships with other people … don’t burn them! Rabbi Shaul (Paul) was constantly building good, permanent relationships by leading people to Messiah and by training them to be disciples and followers of the Lord.

We need to be soul winners. I know some rabbis and ministers who go a whole day never telling anyone about Messiah … and then use the excuse that their job is only to equip the believers. The real JOY of life is helping people find eternal life through Yeshua and then helping them to grow and be productive leaders.

In a previous teaching, Keys To Foundational Relationships, we discussed that sometimes it is God’s will for us to break off relationships, but that is surely NOT the case all the time! If you have a problem constantly breaking off relationships with people, then ask God for healing.

Usually such problems arise out of insecurity or out of “fear of failure” to handle situations: insecurity that is usually imbedded from childhood; or, “fear of failure” resulting from repeated past negative performance. Also, the problems may occur sometimes because of a bad spirit (a demon) and must be dealt with by prayer, confession of the Word of God, and sometimes counseling accompanied by exorcism.

Remember, with Messiah Yeshua you have a new start every day. Learn to cultivate good friendships with people. Show them . . . and yourself … that the Holy Spirit lives in you.

King Saul was a classic case of a “bridge-burner.” King David was a classic case of a “bridge builder.” [1 Samuel Chapters 10 through 31] “Bridge-burning” usually results from insecurity, fear, or jealousy … or a combination of them; and often manifests with the OLD order trying to “spear” the NEW order to the wall. King Saul was jealous of the anointing from God upon David! He was mad at David and afraid of him because God was with him. [1 Samuel 18:5-12]

Be aware of something: The “new order” does not necessarily mean young in age or seniority … or inexperienced. The “new order” can be older people … seasoned, experienced people … breaking away from established form: form that was once fresh with the Spirit.

If we find ourselves in the “old order”, we need to build bridges with the “new order” to establish UNITY for the Lord’s sake. This will accomplish two things:

1. It will assure that we are open to what the Spirit is doing; and,

2. It will place us in a position of blessing to receive a new anointing, and to receive God’s best as a “peace-maker” for unity’s sake [Matthew 5:9]). This way we maintain a position in an OPEN SYSTEM.

When we pray the suggested guidelines for daily prayer as the Lord suggested (the disciple’s prayer [Luke 11:1-4]), we are asking for God’s will … and IF we mean what we pray … we will be open to what God WANTS and what God DOES. God wants unity among his people and He honors “bridge-building” [Ephesians 4:3]. To fulfill your service to the world and to maintain your position of power in an OPEN SYSTEM, you must build bridges!

Maybe you have had a problem with this in the past … or maybe you are having a problem with this NOW. Your situation may be one where a person is angry with you … maybe rightfully so, or maybe wrongfully. Well … I’ve got good news for you. It’s “turn around” time. Here is a promise you can claim:

“Surely the wrath of man shall praise you [God]: and the remainder of wrath you shall restrain.” [Psalm76:10]

Pray and ask God to turn the situation around and make the past anger, or wrath, turn into praise to God. Let the situation PRAISE HIM! And then, ask God to RESTRAIN the remainder of the wrath so there will be no more anger. It works; I’ve used that promise many times.

Two other things that are very important in maintaining an OPEN SYSTEM, and of which we should be cognizant, are as follows:

1. To ACKNOWLEDGE the help and work of those with whom we are associated.

2. To develop the ability to graciously RECEIVE.

Now YOU … like Ruth … can be a world class influence: operating in an open system of spiritual power, and changing nations and generations for eternity!

DECISION, DETERMINATION, AND DESTINY

We received several requests recently after the teaching ezine titled The New You to do a writing on the Book of Ruth in the Tanakh (Old Testament). It never amazes me how the God of Israel has His eye on individuals and listens to their heart cry.

Several years ago a 14-year-old Arab girl named Neya wanted to know Issa (Yeshua in Hebrew, Jesus in English). At that time we distributed return mail business reply cards for people who wanted to study the Holy Bible by mail. People would then send the cards to us with their names and addresses. The postage on these cards was paid for by our office when received them at the post office.

The cards were only good, or honored, inside the USA. However, one day we received a card from a country in the Middle East. It had traveled from there, across the European continent, and to our post office box in the USA … with NO postage on it. I still remember the girl’s last name and address, but for confidentiality I will not reveal it. She finished the whole Bible course and became a wonderful believer in Messiah Yeshua. God knew that girl, where she lived and what she needed.

It was the same way with Ruth, who lived in Moab, which is present day Jordan.

In the days when the judges ruled (a period of backsliding for most of Israel) about 1300 to 1100 B.C., there was famine in the land of Israel. A man from Bethlehem, named Elimelech went to live in the land of Moab with his wife, Naomi, and their two sons. The two sons were named Mahlon and Chilion.

Elimelech’s name means “My God is King” and his wife’s name Naomi means “pleasant.” Mahlon’s name means “sickly” and Chilion’s name means “a mental or physical decline.” In other words, the sons were weak and puny. Bethlehem [Beit Lechem in Hebrew], of course, means “House of Bread.” If you want to order white bread in Hebrew you ask for lechem lavan; if you want dark bread, you ask for lechem shacor.

In the Bible, in the Tanakh (Old Testament), God refers to Moab as His washpot. “Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.” (Psalm 108:9)

We see right away in the first two verses of the Book of Ruth a warning. Don’t leave the place of promised blessing. Also, be constant in maintaining your testimony … you never know how it will affect other people. You are the only Bible some people read. Whenever Elimelech walked down the street, people would think: “Here comes a man whose God is King.” And yet, Elimelech, because of the famine he saw, left the promised place of blessing – the House of Bread – and went to Moab, the garbage can.

After living in Moab a while, Elimelech died, leaving behind Naomi and her two sons. The sons took wives of the women of Moab; one was named Orpah and the other Ruth. And they lived there about ten years. Then both Mahlon and Chilion died, leaving behind Naomi and her two daughters-in-law. Later, Naomi heard that the LORD had attended His people in Bethlehem by giving them bread; the famine was over. So Naomi started to return to her homeland.

She told her two daughters-in-law to return to their mothers. But they said, “No, we will surely return with you to your people.” But Naomi answered them, “Turn back … are there any more sons in my womb that they may be your husbands?” Under the Law of God a man could take his brother’s widow as his wife so that seed (children) could be raised up in his brother’s name, and his brother’s name not be put out of Israel.

Naomi told them, “I’m too old to get married again, and even if I were to get married, would you wait until I have sons and they grow up so you can marry them?” So Orpah kissed her mother-in-law and said “God be with you but Ruth clung to her mother-in-law. Ruth told Naomi, “Wherever you go, I will go; and wherever you live, I will live. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God.”

So the two of them returned to Bethlehem. When Naomi and Ruth arrived in Bethlehem, the women recognized Naomi. The women said, “Is this Naomi?” But Naomi told them, “Don’t call me Naomi [pleasant]; call me Mara [bitter], for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me. I went out full, and the LORD has brought me home again empty.” Now they came to Bethlehem at the beginning of barley harvest. (Ruth Chapter One)

DECISION

Ruth’s life, and the future blessing of people in every nation of the world, was about to be influenced dynamically . . . eternally. Why? Because of Ruth’s decision! There were three (3) attributes of Ruth’s life that propelled her from poverty to status as a world class influence. These attributes all had the same underpinning: willingness.

Ruth manifested a disposition, a willingness – whether as an acquired habit or as a characteristic tendency – to be able:

1. To change;

2. To learn; and,

3. To receive.

Ruth didn’t appear to be afraid to make a CHANGE. If she was afraid, her trust in Israel’s God, the God of Naomi, helped her make the decision. Naomi must have been a wonderful testimony to her daughters-in-law.

Don’t be afraid to leave your “comfort zone”
. If Ruth had not left her comfort zone, none of the blessings that eventually overtook her would have happened.

There are three important principles that need to be considered in any aspect of decision making:

What effect will this decision have on others?

What effect will this decision have on my future?

What good (or, bad) can come from this decision?

In short, they can all be summed up in one principle: “What does Yeshua want ME to do?”

Sometimes we have to make a fast decision (or, we think we do). This is why we need to make sure we’re constantly walking in the Spirit and listening to the Spirit. This is done daily by:

1) Reading God’s Word;

2) Praying; and,

3) Forgiving.

Start your day with the Holy Bible and prayer.

One very important thing to realize is that even “minor” decisions influence “major” decisions later in time; by virtue of the fact of “habit-making” or “habit-forming” patterns. Actions build patterns, and patterns build habits. (Also, habits build personalities!)

Another thing we need to realize is that contrary to modern educational philosophy, there is always a “right” or “wrong” decision? Even if you consider that one decision may be better (or, worse) than another … there is still only one BEST decision. This is why we need God’s wisdom.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men liberally, and does not blame for asking; and it shall be given him.” (James 1:5)

We have made this too difficult – if you ask, God gives you wisdom! If you’re walking in the Word of God, most of the time you won’t have to ask for wisdom: God’s Word is wisdom! That’s why it’s important to read the proverbs daily (in addition to your other Bible reading).

Seeking wisdom in ordinary matters is just as important as seeking God for direction, even though it may not seem so. Again, the little decisions add up to BIG ones and build a “habit pattern” over a period of time. Strive for quality decisions, even in little matters. The COMPOSITE of the large MAJOR decisions in our lives is usually the summation of the smaller minor decisions and habit-patterns we have formed along life’s way.

DETERMINATION

Ruth was thrust into a place where it was NECESSARY for her to LEARN. She had to learn a new culture, a new religion, and a new way of sustenance or income. If she had not been WILLING to learn – or had the DETERMINATION to learn – she would not have succeeded. Never grow too old to learn!

She was determined to go through, no matter what it took or how difficult it would be. And you will go through, my friend, if you have that same determination and trust in God. You’re going to go through!

There was a relative of Naomi’s deceased husband, a man of great wealth, of the family of Elimelech. His name was Boaz. He was a powerful man of good social standing and prosperous.

Ruth had asked her mother-in-law to allow her to go into the field and glean heads of grain in the sight of whomever she would find favor. Under the Law of God, farmers were required to leave the corners of their fields so that the poor could harvest them. (See Torah: Leviticus 19:9 and 23:22; also, Deuteronomy 24:19)

“And she went, and came, and gleaned in the field after the reapers: and her hap was to light on a part of the field belonging unto Boaz, who was of the kindred of Elimelech.” (Ruth 2:3)

So Ruth went with Naomi’s permission to glean and she happened to come to the part of the field belonging to Boaz. The Hebrew word “miqreh” used for hap (or, happening) here means “a chance event, or fortune“. In other words, it was by God’s design that she landed in the field of Boaz. But notice … if she had NOT made the right DECISION to come back with her mother-in-law … and if she had NOT been DETERMINED to work … she would NOT have been in the right place at the right time!

There is a spiritual place of blessing … and a geographical place of blessing. Psalm 37:3 tells us: “Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shall you dwell in the land, and truly you shall be fed.”

Read Psalm 37. Notice that if you do four things:

1. Trust in the Lord;

2. Do good;

3. Delight in (enjoy) the Lord; and,

4. Commit (or, rollover) your concerns to the Lord.

Then, you will:

1. Dwell in the land;

2. Feed on God’s faithfulness;

3. Receive the desires of your heart.

Notice, these verses in Psalm 37 show you a place of blessing for both living and working: spiritually and geographically. This is what God gave Adam in the garden of Eden, a beautiful place to live and work – but because of sin, it was forfeited, or lost. (Read Torah: Genesis Chapters Two and Three.)

There is a “spiritual” place of blessing for you, and a “geographic” place of blessing. In other words, there is a ministry God has for you – a SERVICE to people – and a PLACE where God wants you to minister, or serve.

If you are shooting films, or teaching, or serving the homeless in Lome, Togo … and God wants you in Accra, Ghana … people will still be helped and God will still perform His Holy Word; however, the blessing in your personal life will not be as great because you are NOT where God wants you!

When Boaz came to the field that day, he said to his reapers, “The Lord be with you!” And they answered him, “The Lord bless you!” What an example for employer-employee relations! Then Boaz looked around the field … and saw Ruth. He then said, “Whose young woman is this?” I think he said in the vernacular of the day: “Who is that chick?” Or, “Wow, who is that and where did she come from?”

Then Boaz said to Ruth, “Do not go to glean in another field, nor go away from here.” At lunch time Boaz invited Ruth to eat with him and the reapers. After lunch, Boaz commanded his young men to purposely let grain fall in front of her so she could glean it.

When Ruth returned home that night, she showed her mother-in-law what she had gleaned. It was about four gallons (18 litres in the UK and 15 liters in the US). Naomi was amazed and said, “Blessed is the man who took notice of you.” Ruth told her it was Boaz, and then Naomi told Ruth that Boaz was a close relative: a “goalenu” in Hebrew, which means a “redeemer” or “kinsman-redeemer“. You can read about the “kinsman-redeemer” in Torah: Leviticus 25:25, 47-55.

DESTINY

The next night, Ruth’s mother-in-law told her to put her best dress on, wash and anoint herself (put on her perfume) … look nice for Boaz … and go to the threshing floor that night. By the Law of God, the nearest of kin could buy the land of a widow (if she so willed) and, also, marry the widow of the deceased.

That night, after Boaz had eaten and drunk and his heart was cheerful, Ruth went quietly and laid down by his feet. At midnight he discovered that a woman was lying at his feet. He said, “Who are you?” She answered, “I am Ruth … take your maidservant under your wing, for you are a close relative.” What she was actually saying was, “Spread the corner of your garment over your maid servant, Redeemer.” [Hebrew:”goel“] The culture of that day involved the practice of the casting of the garment over the woman being claimed for marriage, and had no reference to any immoral action.

As mentioned above, by the Law of God, the “goel” – the kinsman redeemer – could buy the land of a widow (if she so willed) and, also, marry the widow of the deceased. However, there were certain qualifications:

1. He had to be WILLING to perform the responsibility, or action.

2. He had to have the money to PAY THE PRICE.

3. He had to be a BLOOD relative.

In the same way, Yeshua Ha Meshiach – Yeshua, the Messiah – was our kinsman redeemer:

1. Yeshua was WILLING to redeem us.

2. Yeshua PAID our price with His own sinless BLOOD on the stake cross.

3. Yeshua was the Son of Man and the Son of God: He was our REDEEMER.

Probably because Boaz was older he would have not approached Ruth about taking her as wife. Naomi, knowing this, coached Ruth as to how to approach the matter. Ruth was probably attractive, for Boaz said to her: “Blessed are you of the Lord, my daughter. For you have shown more kindness at the end than at the beginning, since you did not follow young men, whether they were poor or rich.” (Ruth 3:10)

We know that Ruth was a virtuous woman because of Boaz’ statement: ” … for all the people of my town know that you are a virtuous woman.” (Ruth 3:11) Boaz was willing to give money to Naomi for any property that pertained to her from Elimelech, and also willing to marry Ruth. However, there was a relative nearer than him who had the right of first redemption.

So here was Ruth, as a result of a major decision, living in a new land, immersed in a new culture, and trusting in her new God: the God of Israel. She was in a perfect place to RECEIVE God’s blessings!

When Ruth came home that next morning she had six ephahs of barley – about 85 pounds or 38 kilograms – which Boaz had instructed her to give to Naomi. Ruth had stayed all night at the threshing floor and Boaz probably had a triple reason for giving her the grain:

1. It gave an apparent reason for Ruth’s being with him to those who might have harbored bad thoughts about Ruth being with him;

2. It was a sign that Boaz would take care of her in the future; and,

3. It was, in a sense, a sort of dowery (or bride wealth) as a sign to Naomi.

Boaz told Ruth, “Do not go empty-handed to your mother-in-law.” (Verse 17)

When Ruth returned to Naomi that morning, Naomi asked: “Who are you, my daughter?” The Hebrew word for “Who” used here is “miy” and is an interrogative pronoun of persons. I believe it was a play on words, and that Naomi was actually asking Ruth: “Are you Mrs. Boaz?” … or … “Are you getting married?” Context also seems to bear this out as Naomi then said to Ruth: “Sit still, my daughter, until you know how the matter will turn out; for the man will not rest until he has concluded the matter this day.” (Ruth 3:18)

The next day Boaz went to the gate of the city, where the elders confirmed legal transactions. He met with 10 elders plus the Naomi’s nearest relative, who had the first right of redemption. He offered the nearest relative the option … but at the same time he reminded him that he would have to marry Ruth as part of the package. Then the man did not want to perform the redemption. He said, “I will mar my inheritance.” He may have had previous commitments as to inheritance for his own family members, or he may have been racially prejudicial, since Ruth was a Moabite.

Then Boaz said to the elders and all the people, “You are witnesses this day that I have bought all that was Elimelech’s, and all that was Chilion’s, and all that was Mahlon’s, from the hand of Naomi. Moreover, Ruth, the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, I have acquired as my wife.”

So Boaz took Ruth and she became his wife. When he went into her, the Lord gave her conception, and she bore a son whose name was Obed, who was the father of Jesse, who was the father of King David, from whose seed line the Messiah Yeshua was born!

I wonder, today, are you bound in a situation that looks impossible? Do you feel that there is no way that the vision you have in your heart will ever come to pass? Is the devil telling you that God’s destiny for your life will never be implemented. Don’t believe that lie!

Remember:

Ruth was shut out: by society and by the Law.

Ruth experienced great loss and sadness.

Ruth left her comfort zone.

Ruth experienced great cultural change.

Ruth was not ashamed to do menial work.

Ruth pledged allegiance to Israel’s God.

Ruth found favor with God and man.

Ruth was blessed with a new family and mate.

Ruth was liberated permanently.

Ruth was blessed with wealth.

Ruth became the progenitor of Messiah and his seed line.

God can turn your situation around, too. You see, Ruth was shut out by the Law of God because she was a Moabite. The Moabites did not help Israel with bread and water when they came out of Egypt. They also hired Balaam to curse Israel, which God turned into a blessing, because God loves Israel. (Deuteronomy 23:3-5)

Just as God turned the curse against Israel into a blessing … and just as God turned the exclusion of Ruth into the inclusion of His people, and into the royal seed line from which came Yeshua (Jesus), the Deliverer of the world … so God can turn your situation around.

Make the right DECISION today …

….. have DETERMINATION to change, to learn, to receive …

……… believe God to help you fulfill your DESTINY!

HOW TO PLAN FOR GIANT WORLDWIDE HARVESTS

When God was preparing to destroy the world through means of the Great Flood, He gave explicit commands to Noah. That the flood was a universal and cataclysmic event, worldwide and not local, is evidenced by the fact that it is recounted in different historical records of many ancient cultures, although corrupted as in the Gilgamesh Epic and the Sumerian account.

“Then the Lord said to Noah, Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation.

You shall take with you seven each of every clean animal, a male and his female: two each of animals that are unclean, a male and his female: also seven of each of birds of the air, male and female, to keep the species alive on the face of all the earth.

For after seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy from the face of the earth all living things that I have made.

And Noah did according to all that the Lord commanded him.” [Torah: Genesis 7:1-5]

Knowing that He would flood ALL the earth and destroy ALL living things that he had made upon the earth (both man and beast), God was at the same time planning for WORLDWIDE HARVESTS to keep the species [Lit: seed] alive on the face of all the earth (the earth after the destruction) by using birds to carry and disperse seed.

The Hebrew word for “species” or “seed” used in the above passage is “zerah” and can be used for fruit, plant, sowing time, or posterity. So God was planning ahead of time (after the destruction) for the seeding and maintenance of both botanical life and biological life, and thereby the ecological and systemic sustenance of human life and progeny.

God, in parallel manner during this present time of Planet Earth, in these last days, is preparing to destroy the heavenly bodies: the planetary system of the universe, including earth, as we know it.

However, He is at the same time planning for WORLDWIDE HARVESTS to keep the species [Lit: seed] alive on the face of the New Earth. [Ed. Note: Go to the Archives of The Apostles Group and study “Final Days of Planet Earth“.] This “seed” will be the seed of the Word of God through the seed of Abraham: Messiah Yeshua. It is the “seed” of the LIVING Word, Yeshua, and of the WRITTEN Word, the Word of God, of which there is an organic union between both.

Orthodox Judaism will become a distinct part of this sphere of activity, as will evangelical Christianity, of which there will be an organic union of the Holy Spirit. Many rabbis will be visited by Yeshua in dreams, visions, and in person through the testimony of REAL Christians. It will be the last stage of seven in militant church history: the Militant Church of Israel. [Ed. note: Read “Militant Church History” copyright © 1973 by Handley World Services.]

This incorruptible Word of God will be the “seed” which brings new birth and the necessary sustenance of (spiritual) life during the Millennial Kingdom and after the establishment of the New Earth.

God promised to never again flood the whole world by water; however, He is going to FLOOD the earth a second time with the Word of God. There will be a worldwide deluge of God’s Holy Word and of Messiah’s doctrine.

We see three (3) things in the first five verses of Genesis Chapter Seven in Torah:

[1] Noah lived a just, lawful, and righteous life.

[2] Birds were used as the medium to carry botanical seed.

[3] Noah obeyed God.

[1] NOAH LIVED A JUST, LAWFUL, AND RIGHTEOUS LIFE

Notice the reason for choosing Noah: “Because I have seen you righteous before me in this generation.” [Genesis 7:1]

What kind of life are you living now? I didn’t ask you: “What kind of life did you live in the past?” I didn’t ask you: “What are people saying about you?” But I asked you: “What kind of life are you living … NOW?” Let’s do a self check, or a reality check. What kind of life do you want to live?

If you want to be used for “special works” then you need to live a sanctified, set apart, life. Only in purity will you be enabled for the Lord’s work. [2 Timothy 2:19-21]

[2] BIRDS WERE USED AS THE MEDIUM TO CARRY BOTANICAL SEED

Notice the means wherewith God told Noah that He would keep the species [Lit. seed] alive upon the earth after the flood:

“(You shall take) also seven each of birds of the air, male and female, to keep the species [Lit. seed] alive on the face of all the earth.”
[Genesis 7:3]

Birds were used as the medium to carry botanical seed after the flood thereby providing food, sustenance, and life for man and animals, and enabling procreation to continue.

Who are your birds? What carriers of God’s seed, the Word of God, do you have available to you? How will you keep seed alive upon the earth … and also prepare to keep the species alive (preserve life) upon the New Earth: the Millennial Kingdom of Messiah Yeshua?

May I say to you that there are several available means, or media. With these “media birds” you can “carry” seed. And with the seed you can evangelize, disciple, and establish new churches. Study the three (3) writings below to see more about how to do this:

I – “Using The Media To Preach Messiah” – Go to http://www.realmiracles.com and select Advanced Studies from the BLUE navigation bars on the left of any page. Then select DCC#16 or you can go to the SEARCH ENGINE at the top of any page and type in “Media”. You can also go directly to the page by typing in: www.realmiracles.com/dcc6.htm. Also, use social media such as Twitter, FaceBook, MySpace, YouTube, etc.

II – “How To Win The World For Messiah” at www.realmiracles.com/htwb.htm.

III – “Trends, Times, and Tongues” – Go to the Archives of The Apostles Group and select this topic dated June 29, 2003.

[3] NOAH OBEYED GOD

If you want to be used greatly by God, it will cost you everything you have. Jesus taught, “The kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; which, when a man has found it, he hides the treasure, and because of the joy thereof goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field.” [Matthew 13:44]

If you want to reach China for Christ, then you will have to sell out; also, you will have to buy the whole field. But remember there is JOY involved, and the joy of the Lord is your strength. Also, whatever you leave behind for the cause of Jesus and the Good News, you will receive back in abundance in this life … plus eternal rewards in Heaven, also. [Mark 10:17-31] Meditate upon this! Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal this to you.

Isaiah 32:20 shows there are two ways to increase your blessings. “Blessed are you who sow beside all waters, who send out the feet of the ox and the donkey.” First, SOW, carry the seed, by the different media available. Second, SEND out the workers. Commission them; lay hands on and send out the seasoned, trained workers.

Lots of ministries sow, but few send out the workers.

Along with evangelism and discipling, we need to continuously be: 1.) SOWING; AND, 2.) SENDING. We need to be SOWING locally and worldwide. “And the good news must first be preached to all the nations.” [Mark 13:10] See also Mark 16:15 and Matthew 24:14. We need to be SENDING locally and worldwide [Matthew 28:19-20] Then, we need to TEACH the new believers to DO THE SAME, and to do ALL the teachings of Jesus. We need to TEACH them to START NEW CHURCHES.

We need to pray and fast: for the Word of God to TAKE ROOT in the hearts and lives of people, and to take root in ALL ethnic groups, language and cultural groups, and nations … and for the Word of God to MULTIPLY. We need to ask God for an ANOINTING OF MULTIPLICATION upon our sowing and sending. We need to prophesy and speak in faith for this multiplication for the same reason that Elisha prophesied the multiplication of the widow’s oil: to keep families alive upon this earth and the New Earth … to keep the species [Lit. seed] alive!

This way, we are praying and asking in the Father’s will. This is how we get our prayers answered expeditiously.

IF YOUR PLAN FITS INTO GOD’S PLAN . . .

YOU WILL HAVE GOD’S FAITH . . .

AND GOD’S FAITH ALWAYS WORKS!

“If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done for you. Herein is my Father glorified, that you produce much fruit; so shall you be my disciples.” – Jesus [John 15:7-8]

Soul-winners get their prayers answered.

To obey God, as Noah did, has as a prerequisite that you have heard from God. Below are listed five steps to help you PLAN FOR GIANT WORLDWIDE HARVESTS.

1. OBTAIN A MAP of the world and pray for every country periodically. At times, the Lord may lead you to fast and pray. One good book on the subject is “God’s Chosen Fast” by Arthur Wallis, available by ordering at any good Christian book store.

You might want to pray for the leaders of certain countries, two per day. Write to Window International Network (WIN) for a calendar of the political and spiritual leaders in the 10/40 Window. You can email them at WIN@WIN1040.com.

Go to the RealMiracles website www.realmiracles.com and select “International” from the BLUE navigation bars on the left of any page to learn more about the “10/40 Window”. Also, study “WORLDX” in the Advanced Studies section (the BLUE navigation bars). (Also, at http://www.realmiracles.com/world10-40.htm.)

2. GO MINISTER (evangelize, prayer walk, or do support work) in other nations. Go to places like China and take in Bibles or books or do tract evangelism. For short term, intensive missions deep into china several times a year contact “Go and Sow” (Awesome China Adventure Trips) at: http://www.go-ers.net/go2prc.

Before you go, you have to leave! What is God asking you to leave: anger, career, business, past, unhealthy relationships, pride, fear, arrogance, home, family? Read Mark 10:29 prayerfully.

God may leverage the odds against us to TEST us, as he did in Abraham’s life. At 75 he was a RISK TAKER! Abraham was asked to leave all that he knew. He did not know where he was going … he was clueless. However, he had a healthy sense of inadequacy because he trusted God.

3. FOCUS on those areas where you have a concern. God will give you a concern before He gives you a solution. You will HAVE to do it. No one else may ever do it. Pray and fast; bring your concern before God. Many things may catch your eyes but not your heart. Not everyone will share your concern … maybe no one will … but it will be strongly placed in your heart.

Brand yourself with the component of the eternal. Tell God, “Here I am … give me favor!” Nehemiah was not concerned about a wall … but about God’s people. Reality check: Ask yourself, “Am I concerned about people?” “Do I want God’s Kingdom established on Planet Earth?” Go to the Archives of The Apostles Group and study “Final Days of Planet Earth”.

Give yourself to people … and to the establishment of God’s kingdom on Planet Earth. Remember, “good” is the enemy of “the best”! Nehemiah said, “I am doing a great work and I can’t come down.” [Nehemiah 6:3]

4. EXCEL in where you place your focus (Step #3 above). God doesn’t want you to be average. You’re a believer. Tear down the barriers. BELIEVE GOD! Your own thinking will keep you from God’s best. Enlarge your vision. Prepare yourself for excellence. For advanced studies in leadership, church growth, and missions, study at The University of Excellence. Email to: universityofexcellence@gmail.com for information.

“ENLARGE the place of your tent, and let them STRETCH OUT the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare. LENGTHEN your cords, and STRENGTHEN your stakes. For you shall EXPAND to the right and to the left. And your descendants will inherit the nations and make the desolate cities inhabited.” [Isaiah 54:2-3]

Notice:

Enlarge

Stretch out

Lengthen

Strengthen

You have to prepare room first
. Then you will break forth and expand. Maybe you need to take some classes in school or online courses on the internet, or obtain other experience. Prepare for excellence. At the University of Excellence (part of Handley WORLD SERVICES™ Foundation) we look for people who strive for excellence. We awarded the Doctorate of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in the area of Cultural Humanities to Reverend George Mensah because of his excellence in evangelism to ethnic groups of different countries. He is truly led by the Holy Spirit and it has been our privilege to know him for the last 28 years.

5. MULTIPLY YOURSELF and God’s work through you. Plan and prepare for worldwide harvests to be self-propagating to keep the seed alive. You can do this by means of:

Discipleship;

Establishing schools behind every bush;

Using the media;

Establishing churches and messianic synagogues; and,

Praying for an anointing of multiplication.

If you need help or prayer let us know. We will consider it a PRIVILEGE to assist you in your PLAN FOR GIANT WORLDWIDE HARVESTS! You can email Prince Handley directly at: princehandley@gmail.com

WHAT TO DO AFTER THE VICTORY – PART B

WHAT TO DO  AFTER THE VICTORY – PART B

Please email this message to a friend.

24/7 continuous releases of ALL Prince Handley teachings and podcasts >>> STREAM


WHAT TO DO AFTER THE VICTORY – PART B

Immediately after the victory for which you have fought, prayed, and believed in faith, will subtly appear one of your most dangerous attacks from the enemy. It will NOT be like the attack(s) BEFORE your conquest: to discourage you, to make you afraid, to cause loss of integrity, loss of a loved one, or loss of possessions. All of which attacks you can defeat … and withstand … by living holy and living a life of faith and trust in God.


But this attack will be so delicate or precise as to be difficult to analyze or describe. You will not be capable, without discernment from God, of making fine distinctions as to the source of the attack. It will be overt and delicately complex. There will be put in place clever and indirect means by the enemy to achieve your downfall: spiritually, socially, materially, physically, and mentally … in that order.


This two-part newsletter is being written to instruct you as to how to offset this kind of attack, and to guard against it; also, to augment and solidify your recent victory, and to go on to higher and more productive accomplishments.


King Solomon tells us in the Book of Ecclesiastes that threefold cord is not easily broken. [Ecclesiastes 4:12] There are three things you can do to assure your maintenance of the victory and your own personal integrity. They are as follows:

[] Guard Against Pride

[] Monitor the Victory


[] Plan for the Future

In the previous newsletter we discussed the first thing you should do to assure the maintenance of your victory and your own personal integrity: Guard Against Pride.

In this newsletter we will discuss the second and third things you should do to assure the maintenance of your victory and your own personal integrity: Monitor the Victory; and, Plan for the Future.


[] MONITOR THE VICTORY


Is the business or ministry that was implemented as a result of the victory just accomplished helping people to grow? That is, is it making disciples for our Lord and, at the same time, advancing the kingdom of God? Are new synagogues and churches being raised up. Are you planning and praying for new churches and/or messianic synagogues to be raised up as a result of the business or ministry that was successfully implemented? If so, what will be your strategy for [harvesting AND] monitoring the new birthings that result from the victory?


Do you have literature prepared in the language(s) of the people or customers you will be reaching? What opportunities will be provided for the new believers to take part in your business or ministry so they may grow at optimum efficiency? (We’re NOT talking here about folding church bulletins!) How will you train the leaders of the movement?


Jesus wants you to give them “strong meat.” Not just salvation … but also enlargement. In the great commission He said to “teach them to observe ALL things I have commanded you …” [Matthew 28:18-20] That includes healing, forgiveness, casting out demons, prayer, fasting, love, the baptism in the Holy Spirit, unity, faith, and prosperity of resources.


“Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord has made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season.” [Matthew 24:45]


“For when for the time you ought to be teachers, you have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.” [Hebrews 5:12]


Do you have methodology in place whereby you can obtain feedback from the new wave of the harvest? How will you “take the pulse” of the new believers and the leaders in the movement or business so you can help them yield to the lordship of Christ. Do you have a system in place … a plan of action … to monitor and ensure that the new disciples are becoming disciples of Christ and NOT disciples of men.


What you do NOT need is for the enemy to trick you, and you find out up the road that false discipleship is taking place: the believers are falling prey to the (false) covering movement where they become disciples of men and lose their liberty to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. They become robots instead of creators! This happened in the 1970’s and was a strategy of Satan to destroy the evangelistic and prophetic ministry. I know of cases where people had to ask permission from the elders for such things as taking flowers to a sick person or evangelizing a university.


Let the Holy Spirit do what He wants; but you fast, pray, and plan. Some people spend much time planning and preparing for their own financial and legal matters, but hardly any time planning and preparing for the efficient mobilization of God’s people and the necessary logistics.


Do you have plans ahead of time to facilitate the new believers being directed into houses of worship … OR … to teach them how to start a new church or messianic synagogue?


When a new fellowship of believers is raised up, what should you look for? What ministry gifts does the Holy Spirit usually give to the new local body of believers before the ministry of apostle? How should the leaders be chosen? Will the new leaders know how and when to send out workers to other fields?


How will you make sure that the NEW MOVEMENT which results from the recent victory will be multiplied? Never be satisfied with production or harvest alone … but always pray for an ANOINTING OF MULTIPLICATION!


To help you monitor the harvest, make disciples, start new houses of worship, build people up in the Word of God, and multiply the new movement, check out the following resources on the website at:
www.realmiracles.com. If the links below do not take you to the desired subjects, just go to the RealMiracles and select from the BLUE navigation bars at the left of the Home Page (or any page). It will only take you an extra click or two.

International [Blue navigation bar on left of any page]


There are many subjects dealing with monitoring the harvest so you should examine each area of the RealMiracles website to derive the information relevant to the situation. For example, when I asked the questions above, “How should the leaders be chosen? Will the new leaders know how and when to send out workers to other fields?”, the answers are both subjective and objective.


If you study the scriptural pattern for new churches being established, you will see in Acts Chapter 13 that prophets and teachers were first called out by the Holy Spirit and then apostles sent forth. Study the Book of Acts and watch the scriptural pattern, an objective pattern laid out by the Holy Spirit. Also, notice how the apostles went back on subsequent journey(s) confirming the (souls of) the disciples.


However, there is “subjectivity” to the selection of leaders. You will see that the Holy Spirit “called” and then “sent forth” the apostles. In between the “calling” and the “sending forth” was the laying on of hands by the presbytery, ratifying the work of the Spirit. The aspect of “subjectivity” in the ordaining or choosing of leaders is of extreme importance. Let me give you an example.


While I was training pastors and Christian leaders in a jungle area, there were two predominant leaders. The brothers I knew who had been used by God to plant several churches in the area of that nation had two individuals in mind that they thought should be the leaders. However, the indigenous natives came to them and said, “They are not the leaders, it is someone else.” The leaders the people chose were the two that I had noticed.


[] PLAN FOR THE FUTURE


Jesus taught that we must be expedient concerning the harvest. It would be terrible mismanagement … extremely sinful … to allow the harvest to lay idle, and go unharvested: to allow it to rot.


“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night comes, when no man can work.” [John 9:4]


“Do not say, There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest. But, look, I say to you, focus with your eyes, and put your attention on these fields, for they are already white, ready to harvest.” [John 4:35]


My mother used to say many times, “Make hay while the sun shines!” (In other words, when night comes it’s too late to work … take advantage of the situation NOW!)


After your victory is the time the enemy will do his best to allure you with: Fame; Fortune; Lust; and,
Deception of any kind.

Don’t let your guard down!

You are at your weakest point of defense right after your victory. That’s the time to “RSPS”: Rest; Stay under the anointing; Plan, stretch out in faith; and, Start implementing your plans for the NEXT victory. It may be related to the harvest of your present (recent) victory.

Rest for a short period. Use this time to reflect and give thanks to God, and those people who assisted you, for the victory. Pray God’s blessing on those who assisted you!

Stay
under the anointing. Stay in the Word of God and prayer.

Plan. Use this period of rest to listen to God for the “skeletal” outline of your next project. Receive your plans from the Spirit. Then praise and thank Him in faith for the next victory!


Start
. Don’t wait for everything to be perfect before you implement. Don’t wait until all the conditions are right before you start. Count the cost, but use faith. You can refine after you implement.

I trust this series has helped you, and will protect you and make you even more productive in the future!


Your friend,

REMOVE THE BARRIERS

APOSTLE TALK – Future News Now!

REMOVE THE BARRIERS

The Word of the LORD to you is:

Remove the constrictions. Expand your circles of influence. Break the old barriers. Expand your touch. Use your faith. I will bring it to pass.

People need the breath of God … the touch of God. You are the instrument of God to reach people. Even your prayers for every nation, tribe, tongue, and dialect of the earth to be emblazoned with the glory of God are tools of LOVE and POWER through which the Holy Spirit works to reach people in time and space: sometimes years later in time … and continents away in space.

I have known God to use cassettes, videos, literature, and media broadcasts that were produced years before as instruments through which people were saved, healed, baptized in the Spirit, and received MIRACLES. God honors His Word. He watches over it to perform it. Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it. [Jeremiah 1:12]

Your personal sphere of influence … through ministry, through prayers, through giving … is at the threshold of increase in quantum leaps dependent upon what you do with this message. So be it, according to YOUR faith.

Enlarge the place of your tent. And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left … [Isaiah 54:2]

Change your thinking. Think BIG. 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!

1. Spend time MEDITATING God’s Word so you can LEARN His principles.

2. Spend time PRAYING so you can talk to Him and HEAR from Him.

3. Spend time PLANNING so you will know what to IMPLEMENT for Him.

4. Spend time BELIEVING so you will know what to RECEIVE from Him.

Faith is wonderful … but it’s even better when you have a PLAN to go along with your faith! If YOUR PLANS fit into GOD’S PLANS, you will have God’s faith … and God’s faith ALWAYS WORKS!

One time I took four of my oldest children on a hike. We had looked out our window for many months across a valley and to the beautiful hills where we lived. I kept telling them that sometime we would hike up to the hills. One Saturday I surprised them and said, Today is the day we will hike up into the hills. We packed a little lunch and set out upon our way. They were excited and I was, too.

As we reached the base of the hills we came across something we had never seen from our window. It was a deep stream, which was an obstacle to our forward progress. I carried my children one by one over the stream. As we reached the top of the hills we saw a view of splendor. It was a beautiful lake nestled in the top of the hills that we had never seen and did not know was there.

You will never experience the NEW (UNSEEN) vistas in life until you’re willing to venture out. Leave the “comfort zone” behind if you feel the LORD leading you to … go into the Promised Land! If you reach obstacles … which you will … your Father will take you through … just as I carried each of my children over the stream. He will honor your FAITH. Just trust Him.
