 THE ART OF CHRISTIAN WARFARE
NEW GLOBAL STRATEGY

The Art and Principles of Christian Warfare was written in Africa and in the Republic of Mauritius over a four month period by Prince Handley. It includes such topics as:

  • Stratagem and tricks of the enemy.
  • Guidelines for interactive ministry.
  • How to operate in foreign cultures and countries.
  • Secret powerful truths of ministry.
  • Organizing ministry trips in other countries.
  • Exiting ministry trips.
  • When and how to work alone.
  • When and how to work cooperatively.
  • How to reach whole nations by yourself.
  • Warrior mentality and diversionary tactics.

Plus many other specific guidelines in the art of Christian warfare.

STRATAGEM AND TRICKS OF THE ENEMY

There are several strategies, tricks, and diversionary tactics of the enemy to halt, hinder, impede, nullify or destroy your ministry.

You must always be cognizant of this fact. There is a devil who has planned stratagem, and who has forces (spirits) of intelligence monitoring your plans, your progress, and your private relationships.

Do NOT be afraid. We will instruct you as to how to obtain and maintain the victory … continually!

However, you need to be aware of the various stratagem of the devil. My purpose in writing this is so that you will be able to recognize his various tricks. If you know ahead of time how he works, then you will be able to resist and FIGHT as a strong warrior.

It is important in warfare to KNOW your enemy … and to know HOW the tactical aspects of his warfare. Below are listed several methods of attack used by Satan. Some of his methods are:

  • To get you to quit.
  • To get you to cancel an engagement or speaking / teaching. Ways the enemy uses to get you to do this are as follows:

A. Someone near you [associate, team member, driver … or family member of the same … “hanger-on,” mixed multitude, etc.] is doubting, scoffing, heady [education versus the anointing] or high-minded.
B. Someone you’re teamed with is not being honest with you, or being “sneaky” and using you.
C. Other speakers of different doctrine scheduled in the same meetings with you.
D. Being hurt emotionally, spiritually, or physically. (See #5 below.)

  • Diversionary tactics.

A. Having you meet an attractive member of the opposite sex (single or married).
B. Opportunity(s) to make lots of money, or “quick money.”
C. “Quick roads” to ministry success.
D. Fame: going for “your” name and NOT Jesus’ glory. (See #4 below.)

  • Pride

A. People not treating you right, or, respectfully … and you may feel that you deserve better treatment (which you may).
B. Living a lifestyle for “show” or above your means.

CAUTION!
PRIDE IS A PSYCHOLOGICAL ATTEMPT TO HIDE OUR FAULTS

  • Emotional disappointment(s), “broken heart,” or very rude action(s) on the part of others.
  • Prolonged goal attainment or unaccomplished desire(s). Many times when we experience the “death of a vision” God brings resurrection; however, if a person is NOT persevering in faith, discouragement can set in.
  • Death of a loved one.
  • Lies, false accusations (or, true ones), or gossip.
  • Not being used, included, or recognized. Being “shut out” by your peers or others, either purposefully or unknowingly.
  • Another person, or people, being promoted or recognized and you know they are NOT worthy of the recognition.
  • Sickness. You must claim and receive your healing. Go in faith unless the LORD tells you to stay.
  • A combination of any of the above.

SUMMARY: Walk DAILY in faith, pray in the Spirit, stay in the Word, obey the LORD, and keep your heart in forgiveness with love.

  • The Holy Spirit will always be leading you in the OPPOSITE direction of the devil.
  • The Holy Angels are assigned from God to protect you.
  • There are many promises in God’s Word to give you victory.

Do NOT be afraid. Fear immobilizes the Body of Christ. Remember the old saying: “Fear knocked at the door, faith answered, and no one was there!” Speak this scripture to yourself often, “For I have not received a spirit of fear, but of power, and love, and a sound mind (or, self control).” (2 Timothy 1:7)

I have prepared a complete unabridged edition of my book, The Art of Christian Warfare – Rules of Command.

It is available in both e-Book and Paperback formats. This book is a must-read if you are serious about serving God during these End Times we are entering. (Click on the link above for order information.)

Remember … we are in a war … but our Leader has already WON it for us. Keep your head up and your faith working.

OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO REACH MULTITUDES FOR MESSIAH

You can reach LOTS of people for Christ by doing a “Review” on Amazon about these NEW two books: New Global Strategyand The Art of Christian Warfare.

The Art of Christian Warfareis a companion book to New Global Strategy. It is much more focused on church planting and building disciples … and also includes “tips and suggestions” for the Christian worker: on and off the field.

NOTE 1: New Global Strategyis ONLY available in e-Book format because I placed LOTS of links (probably weeks of study in it) to help train the Christian missions director or worker. (Less pages – 37 – but lots of links).

NOTE 2: The Art of Christian Warfareis a manual and guide for global missions—it will get the job finished. See the contents. This book has the LARGEST amount of free pages view (for a book of this size) of any book we have ever seen on Amazon. It is 95 pages and available in BOTH eBook and Print format.

A Review for both books will be appreciated. These books will effectively prepare Christian workers for global outreach in the last days. Thanks for your help!

P.S. – We did a perusal of the available books on “Missions” online and they are generally too long, too expensive and too NOT Spirit Baptism oriented.

EIGHT TWIN STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESS & CONTINUED VISION (PART D – FINAL)


In previous teachings in this series we discussed the FIRST FIVE TWINS for success and continued vision:

  • Enthusiastic Desire PLUS Faith;

  • Decisive Nature PLUS Virtue;

  • Specialized Knowledge PLUS Spiritual Knowledge;

  • Quest for Excellence PLUS Temperance; and,

  • Organic Spiritual Endeavor PLUS Patience.


In this final teaching of the series we will cover the LAST THREE TWINS:

  • Principles of Value PLUS Godliness;

  • Like-minded Associates PLUS Brotherly Kindness; and

  • Vehicle for Attainment PLUS Love.


When you combine your good desires with faith . . . ENTHUSIASTIC DESIRE PLUS FAITH . . . you have an unbeatable combination. You can begin to PLAN your future prayerfully based upon the God given desires of your heart. That’s one reason it is important to read and meditate upon the Word of God daily so you will KNOW and develop the will of God for your life.

Remember . . . you can CREATE with your faith. Hebrews 11:1 tell us, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Faith is the underpinning or support . . . a title deed (as in property) . . . that lets you KNOW you have the objects or affairs you do not yet see.

It is a wonderful thing to have FAITH, but if you have a PLAN incorporating your desires to go along with your faith, it is even better! Here’s a SECRET that will allow you to SEE many MIRACLES:

If your PLAN fits into God’s plan

. . . . . . . you will have God’s FAITH

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . and God’s faith ALWAYS WORKS!


You need to be able to make decisions based upon knowledge and quality input. Once again, this is where it is important to read and meditate upon the Word of God daily. You need DIRECTION in the many matters of life that face you now . . . and also about future planning. God has given you everything you need for LIFE and GODLINESS through His PROMISES and the KNOWLEDGE of Christ.

In ministry and in business you need to draw upon quality research, marketing, and experience (sometimes the input of others)
. And you need to KNOW when to act. Timing is KEY to success in many courses of action. Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, says that when he knows that something is right, and that the timing is right, he goes into it with MASSIVE ACTION. However, without VIRTUE a decision can have disastrous effects eternally and with no substance temporally here on earth.

The Greek word for VIRTUE in the New testament is arete: it means excellence and valor. We need to be people of EXCELLENCE. Our nature should be to make excellent DECISIONS based upon VIRTUE. If we are following Jesus and listening to the Holy Spirit, we will be able to accomplish this continuously.

“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men. Knowing that of the Lord you shall receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.”
[Colossians 3:23-24]

Make your decisions based upon the fact that God is watching you!


We are living in a day like the prophet Daniel described where “knowledge shall be increased” and we should take advantage of that knowledge to advance the kingdom of God. Daniel, in a passage of scripture dealing with the end times, tells us ” . . . but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” [Daniel 11:32] Exploit, in the sense used here, means literally “to do successively unfolding bold, courageous works!”

There are many ways to influence society and to reach the world for Messiah. And there are many NEW ways to help yourself gain SUCCESS! Pray and ask God to reveal these to you. Then, obey Him and be diligent to study in order to prepare yourself to be used by the Master: to be a good steward.

No amount of SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE, however, will be of significant time value without SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE. No matter how successful we become in life, it will not be of any time value unless we know God personally. If we know God through His Son, Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah, then we have eternal life. [Brit Chadashah: John 3:16]

When you study the Bible, ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you, and to teach you so you can teach others. The scripture instructs us, “Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” [2 Timothy 2:15]

Combining SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE with SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE will provide you a powerful impetus for ongoing success and continued vision. To be really successful we need to share our success with others: our family, our brothers and sisters in Messiah, our community, and the world.

THE MORE YOU KNOW . . . THE MORE THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN USE! This applies not only to mental knowledge but also to knowledge gained through the acquisition of physical skills or craftsmanship.

Practice excellence in your CHARACTER. Be transparent and keep your word. Psalm 15 is a good start for practical living and developing excellence in character. Also, loving our neighbor as we do our self, and doing unto our neighbor as we would have him do to us, is the guideline our Gadol Cohen (Great Rabbi) set before us.

Practice excellence in your WORK
. Be a good steward for your earthly employer and your Heavenly employer. Colossians 3:22 instructs us NOT to do sight-labor: that is, work that needs watching.

In your quest for excellence, develop your skills to the BEST of your ability. Be a good manager of what God has given you and over which God has placed you. Keep improving and growing in your knowledge base, your acumen, and your skills. Study Part ‘A’ of this teaching to help develop excellence in acumen; particularly study the section on “Decisive Nature and Virtue.”

Along with the quest for excellence you need to partner with temperance, or self control. Many people, on their quest for excellence, do NOT allow for rest or leisure. This is vital to SUCCESS and CONTINUED VISION.

Rest, and also quietness, is necessary for wholeness. A key scripture and principle that I have tried to practice in my life for many years is found in Isaiah 30:15:

“For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: In returning and rest shall you be saved; and in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.”

Leisure is more than just non-work. It is when we PERMIT ourselves time for rest, growth, and development. Leisure is BOTH the embryo and the catalyst for creativity, and for NEW experiences, people, play, and places.

We have to permit ourselves the time to rest . . . to re-create . . . and to create!
Isaiah 58:13-14 tells us about an ADDED BONUS when we honor the Sabbath of the Lord.

“If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on My holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honorable; and shall honor Him, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words:

Then shall you delight yourself in the LORD; and I will cause you to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it.”

We need to have TOTAL success in life: in this life on earth and in the eternal beyond; and God has provided just such means to attain that goal. God has given us EVERYTHING WE NEED for: LIFE, and GODLINESS.

“According as His divine power has given unto us ALL THINGS that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that has called us to glory and virtue.”
[2 Peter 1:3]

He has given us PROMISES so that we can share or partner with Him in His divine expansion – or growth of descendants – after we have escaped, by His saving grace, the ruin that is in the world through lust. In other words, after we are born again and start serving Messiah, we can partner and be a companion with God in successfully bearing fruit: that is, growing other seed-descendants. These include our own children who are born again while also reaching out to the rest of the world.

“Whereby are given to us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” [2 Peter 1:4]

How can we involve ourselves in powerful, prolonged, and productive effort that will be self multiplying and profitable, not only temporally here on Planet Earth but also eternally in Heaven?

The answer: be actively engaged in organic ministry growth! Be involved in a work that is propagating living, continuous development of the Kingdom of God.

The definition of the word propagate is “to breed by natural (or supernatural) processes from a parent origin; to promote an idea or knowledge widely; to transmit in a particular direction.”

There are around 60,000 people groups on Planet Earth, with Messianic believers and Christians in most regions of the earth. With the expansion of global trade, internet access, social networking, and communications, many – if not most – of these groups understand and view themselves as one worldwide synagogue or church in an interconnected world. To be involved in Kingdom Work is to be involved with the heart and purpose of God. It is to be involved LOCALLY and GLOBALLY . . . and both TEMPORALLY and ETERNALLY.

The earth is getting smaller with regard to travel, communications, and interfacing of cultures. At the same time the Body of Messiah’s people is becoming more inter-tribal. We see the horizon of the fulfillment of Yeshua’s prophecy that the Good News will be preached, proclaimed, or published before the time of His return to Planet Earth.

“And the gospel must first be published [preached] among all nations.”
[Mark 13:10]

The word for nations here used is “ethnos” – as in ethnic group – meaning “a race of the same habit, or culture, or tribe.”

Read and study the Biblical pattern of synagogue and church growth in the Book of Acts. Certain things are evidentiary and these same patterns are manifest in any POWER GROWTH synagogue or church today.

1. When people believed in Yeshua (Jesus), and after they took part in mikvah (were baptized in water), a group was formed for: worship; teaching; prayer; helps; and, evangelism.

2. Prophets and teachers were raised up by the Holy Spirit.

3. The Christians prayed and fasted.

4. The Holy Spirit called out apostles.

5. These apostles were sent out (NOT “released”) by the believers after hands were laid on them.

6. As the apostles went to different areas they preached the Good News.

7. Other churches were raised up as a result of the preaching and the work of the apostles.

8. The churches grew and ministered to the believers, the community, and the world.


Notice, in Acts 13:1-4, it was the Holy Spirit who CALLED the apostles (verse 2) and it was the Holy Spirit who SENT them (verse 4). In between the calling and the sending was the ratification by the elders with the laying on of hands (verse 3). The apostles were NOT “released by men” . . . it was the Holy Spirit who called and sent them.

Notice, this is the NORMAL PATTERN of church growth. This is to be expected today! It should be a regular practice of a local church to SEND OUT workers: both for long term commitment and for short term service.

We should always be willing to make changes for the Lord; that is part of discipleship. However; there are times we have to wait . . . because God is developing things or situations where we are going to be sent . . . or because He is developing things in our lives . . . or both!

But if you wait for an EXTENDED period of time, then examine yourself to make sure you are willing to leave your comfort zone. God may be speaking to you and redirecting you, but you may not be listening because it is NOT what you want to hear.

Patience is really cheerful, or hopeful, endurance. True biblical patience, as expressed by the Greek word “hupomone” is constancy. It is the kind of enduring patience, or patient continuance in well doing. It is knowing the will of God for this season of your life, and looking forward to being used by God in SPECIAL SERVICE in the future, also! Be involved in ministry that is sending out the workers, birthing or planting new synagogues and churches, preaching and teaching to facilitate the MIRACLE working power of God. Yeshua (Jesus) sent out his followers . . . and He is sending YOU out to:

Preach and teach;

Heal the sick;

Cast out demons.


This threefold ministry, or triangulation of mission, will empower you and your ministry; it will keep you FRESH under the anointing of the Spirit. You will be continuously creative, causing you to be more successful and to have continued vision!

Now, if you add to your patience PRINCIPLES OF VALUE and GODLINESS, you will have the spiritual and physical mechanics to add other people, like-minded associates, to your asset bank for success and continued vision.

PRINCIPLES OF VALUE plus GODLINESS

One of the great aspects of reading and studying – as well as meditating upon – the Holy Bible daily is so we can learn precepts and principles. We can learn HOW God thinks about certain things and WHY He wants us to behave in a particular manner. Situations vary in life; we may not always come up against situations that have been codified. However, if we know HOW God thinks about certain things and WHY God expects certain responses from us, then we can transfer those principles into every arena of life.

We need to know both the Jewish Old Testament (Tanakh) and the Jewish New Testament (Brit Chadashah) so we can navigate successfully through the issues of life and have continued vision. There is an association between the Law of God and vision from the Lord.

“The law is no more; her prophets also find no vision from the Lord.”
[Lamentations 2:9]

“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he.” [Proverbs 29:18]

It is the same way in our personal lives and ministries. If we adhere to the teachings of God; that is, live by the principles we learn about HOW God thinks and WHY He expects certain behavior, then we will not only have SUCCESS but also continued VISION.

Actually the combined traits of PRINCIPLES OF VALUE and GODLINESS will be concomitant factors. Here again is the key: knowing and obeying the Word of God, which is His Will!

LIKE-MINDED ASSOCIATES plus BROTHERLY KINDNESS

You need to have strong relationships with God and with those people to whom God will lead you to work. Appreciate the people with which God has chosen you to work. However, don’t try to “force” relationships: don’t make commitments to every person you meet. God will show you those people to whom you should be committed when you are FIRST committed to Him!

Give positive support, or “reinforcement” to those people you’re committed to …

Whether they are OVER YOU in a position of authority;

You are OVER THEM; or,

You are on the same level (working or ministry associates).


Remind each other that “God will fight for us!”.

Give your associates REWARDS from time-to-time for:

The good work they do;

Their consistency and faithfulness; or,

Their availability.


These rewards do not (always) have to be monetary. Sometimes a “pat on the back”, or a “word of encouragement”, is really meaningful: letting them know the good they are doing is not going unnoticed. Let people KNOW you are THANKFUL and APPRECIATIVE of their association with you.

Maybe an invitation to dinner, or just spending time alone with them or their family, whether it’s a few minutes or a day or two. It is also important for a man to give positive support to his wife. There are so many ways a wife serves a husband in his ministry that may go unnoticed by him.

Simple brotherly kindness to and among your group will go a long way to impacting the world with Messiah’s love and power! This is the reason I started The Apostles Group seven years ago, and the reason I write this newsletter and provide our world services free.

We need to appreciate those nearest to us, and never to take them for granted. This is where “family altar” is so important: don’t neglect ministering to your own family! They may be your GREATEST DISCIPLES!! Read and discuss the Holy Bible together, and then pray together.

It is good to spend time refreshing your mind thinking about all the successes God has given you in the past. God has NOT brought you this far to make you fail. God is FOR you! One time the disciples of Jesus were in a ship in the middle of the sea where the waves were rough and the wind was strong. They became fearful until Jesus came to them on the water and told them not to be afraid. They FORGOT that the Lord had commanded them to GO to the other side.

He did NOT intend them to sink or to fail. Jesus intends for you to SUCCEED! He wants you to make it to the “other side.” Take time to study in the Holy Bible how others have succeeded: Abraham, Joseph, Daniel, Esther, Mordecai … and the Apostles.

Associate with like-minded people who SHARE YOUR VISION (or who know what you’re about) . . . people who are POSITIVE. You want to be able to brainstorm with these people, and not to have ideas – no matter how ridiculous – be shot down as soon as they are verbalized.

IMPORTANT: This group of like-minded people with whom you will share your vision, goals, and new ideas, is NOT an accountability group. This is NOT a group of people to whom you decide to be accountable for your personal life, your ministry, or your finances. This is a group of people with whom you need to have OPENNESS for CREATIVITY:

To dream;

To plan;

To get feedback; and,

To implement.


We have seen that when we add to our patience the twin gifts of GODLINESS and PRINCIPLES OF VALUE, we will have the spiritual and physical mechanics to add other people, LIKE-MINDED ASSOCIATES, to our asset bank for success and continued vision. Next . . . you can select your VEHICLE FOR ATTAINMENT.

VEHICLE FOR ATTAINMENT plus LOVE

What is the means by which you will arrive at your goal? What is the vehicle which will transport you to the attainment of your dream?

When an athlete in a championship game scores the winning goal, he is merely manifesting a composite of the years of training, wins and losses, experience, exercise, and mental conditioning that have preceded this moment. Likewise, the composite of major decisions in our lives are usually the summation of the smaller minor decisions and habit-patterns we have formed along the way.

To some people, the vehicle for attainment of their goals is a multilevel marketing plan. To others, it is a business and investment plan. To many, it is a retirement plan. To the ULTIMATE WINNER, it is the vision and the miraculous arrived at through seeking God in prayer and fasting: combining ENTHUSIASTIC DESIRE and FAITH with DIRECTION from God.

God will reveal YOUR vehicle for attainment as you spend time alone with Him. Shut off your television and your video / DVD player . . . spend time with the Creator of the Universe. Talk to Him . . . listen to Him. God is NOT stupid. The Heavenly Father knows the person who wants to be used by Him . . . the person who wants to spend time with Him. And, He doesn’t need anyone: no matter how great our talents, skills, and possessions!

The Creator will reveal by His Spirit the vehicle for you to use in the attainment of your goal(s) . . . and when to CHANGE that vehicle. God, the creator of the goal-desires in your heart, knows the methodology by which to bring them to pass. He knows the vehicle by which, when coupled with FAITH, will bring the goal-desires into fruition.

There is an amazing spiritual truth we find in Genesis 11:1-9. Before the nations of the earth were scattered on the face of the earth, the earth was of one language and one speech. The people had decided to make a city and a tower, whose top would reach unto heaven; they wanted to make a name for themselves so they would not be scattered abroad upon the face of the earth.

“And the Lord said, ‘Behold, the people is one, and they all have one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.” [verse 6] “Let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” [verse 7]

Archaeological records show us that these were wicked and idolatrous people. Yet we see in verse 6 that God said, “nothing will be restrained from them”. Notice they had ONE goal and ONE speech. They were unified in purpose and language.

If this principle of “oneness” works in unbelievers … for ungodly, wicked people … how much more will it work for believers … for God’s people … who have ONE goal and ONE speech: a common vision and a common language! Especially spirit-filled Christians who have a common objective and who can pray and decree a thing (or a set of objectives) in not only their common earthly language(s), but also their heavenly language: tongues!

In Job 22:28 we read, “You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto you …” In the original Hebrew language the word “decree” is a primitive root form of the word “gazar“, which means “to cut out exclusively, or to decide“. In its primitive form it is used also as a “quarrying” term … as in cutting out stone from a rock quarry.

It means more than to “say” or “speak”. It conveys the meaning of “cutting something out in your mind’s eye”; that is, “to envision [to make a vision], to decide upon it, and confess it” … and then it will be established unto you! If you and your Christian brothers and sisters have a common vision or goal, and decide upon it, confessing it in a common language, speaking it … “nothing will be restrained from you which you have imagined (or, envisioned) to do!! [Read again Genesis 11:1-6.]

The SECRET . . . the capstone to the whole process . . . without which you will not be the ULTIMATE WINNER . . . is LOVE.

The vehicle for attainment of your goals, no matter how intense your desire, your faith and the other twins we have studied, cannot bring you into success and continued vision without LOVE. Love is the channel through which the gifts of the Holy Spirit work. “Faith works by love.” [Galatians 5:6]

Remember … if you have LOVE, then FAITH can work.

I trust this series on The Eight Twins for Success and Continued Vision has been a blessing to you, and that it will help you accomplish your God-given desires!

UNLIMITED VISION AND ATTAINMENT

MUSIC / INTRO

The title of this newsletter may seem oxymoronic. How can you have UNlimited goals and succeed in accomplishing them? Answer: by NOT limiting your goals. Usually the main thing people omit when establishing goals is NOT allowing for self-perpetuating growth or augmentation.

Years ago I gave three automobiles away to three different ministers of the Gospel. I had walked for three years before the Lord blessed me with the first auto I gave away; and I walked in between the time I gave the others away. I am now driving the ??th automobile (I forgot how many) that the Lord has given me. Seven of the autos were Cadillacs (the most expensive auto made in the USA) and in about half of them I had loudspeaker installations.

The Cadillacs were excellent for this setup because they had ample space between the front grille and the radiator to enable the sideways installation of a large 110 watt police horn speaker. Inside the cars were also installed amplifiers and secret (hidden) microphones. This way I could preach while driving and have both hands on my steering wheel. The sound was so loud from the loudspeaker that one time while driving down an interstate freeway, going about 70 mph, the cattle in a field a long way from the road even turned to look as I was preaching.

In large metropolitan cities I would preach while stopping at the red lights while the crowds of pedestrians would cross the street. Sometimes people would risk getting run over and hurriedly walk (almost run) through (against) the red light just to get away from God’s Word.

One time while driving through the mountains the Lord impressed me to stop the car and preach on the loudspeaker. There weren’t any people or buildings around that I could see but I obeyed anyway. I didn’t know until a few minutes later that there were men working down the mountainside building a house. I preached to them from Hebrews 3:4, “For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God.”

Whenever I’m home, in the morning I step out on the roof veranda and look at some of the most beautiful buildings in the world with architecturally superb designs. Amazed at their grandeur, I also reflect on all the planning, money, risk, coordination, and time that went into building them. And I always thing of that verse in Hebrews 3:4, “For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God.”

When I first look at the buildings, even with my engineering background, I think, “How can men build these fantastic buildings?” And then I think, “But God built ALL things … he made the men and the materials; and gave men the knowledge and skills needed to construct and finish them.”

I want to encourage you. You can do something far BIGGER than build buildings like these. You can make disciples for Messiah Yeshua and MULTIPLY your ministry / vision through many future generations.

MUSIC

First of all, never get so busy that you don’t have time to dream! What is that BIG work you want to do for God? You CAN DO it!

“With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” [Matthew 19:26]

“If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.” [Mark 9:23]

“And all things, whatever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.” [Matthew 21:22]

“For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God.”
[Hebrews 3:4]

Here is one of YOUR KEYS to success:

If your plans fit into God’s plan … you will have God’s faith … and God’s faith always works!


This is one reason it is imperative to see the importance of Israel, Jerusalem, and God’s chosen people, the Jews, in the divine plan of God. For this reason, to help you, I recently wrote the newsletters “The Millennial Kingdom (Part A) and (Part B).”

“When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when He separated the sons of Adam, He set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel. For the Lord’s portion is His people; Jacob [Israel] is the lot of His inheritance.” [ Deuteronomy 32:8-9]

In my booklet, “How To Win the World for Christ,” you will find seven (7) keys for reaching the whole world.

Multiplication of ministry starts with the BELIEF in the potential of one person. This is where discipleship is important. K. Bruce Miller drives home this idea: “Would you spend as much time preparing yourself to meet the needs of one person as you would preparing a sermon for five thousand? How much do you believe in the potential of one?”

In my teaching on “Anointing of Multiplication” you will find how to multiply your ministry.

In the teaching “How to Start a Church” you will find a simple, effective way to start a synagogue or church in any neighborhood, city, barrio, or village.


A few years ago I prophesied to my oldest daughter, Ariel, that she would start teaching God’s Word. I bought her a new study Bible and gave it to her. About a month later she called me and told me that the Lord was having her start teaching . She and her husband and another couple started a home Bible study with about 6 to 10 people, alternating from each home. The other couple finally felt the Lord leading to start a church, and in about three years grew to 1,500 people attending. Around 400 of those attending were new Christians, having given their lives to the Lord within the previous year.


MUSIC

When you have a dream or vision that you want to accomplish for God, the main thing you need to decide on at the outset is that you will NOT quit … you will NOT give up!

If you don’t quit, you’ll WIN! … But if you quit, you can’t win!

Thomas Edison failed over 30,000 times before inventing the light bulb. The Bible says, “A just man falls seven times, and rises up again.” [Proverbs 24:16]

You have time, talent, and treasure with which to serve the Lord. God is watching for your faithfulness. Are you consistent in good times as well as bad? Are you BELIEVING for the accomplishment of your vision through the years when you don’t SEE fruit, production, or growth? Does your plan fit into God’s plan?

Read Luke 11:5-15. Importunity means to keep on asking; approach God with your requests as persistent and pressing.

“And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For everyone that asks, receives; and he that seeks, finds; and to him that knocks, it shall be opened.”
[Luke 11:9-10]

Have only super BIG, positive, more-than-maximum, Unlimited goals. And … keep enlarging them. Refuse to have small, negative, limiting thoughts, dreams, and visions. Say to yourself, “I refuse to think or envision anything negative, small, minimal, or limited.”

Zechariah 4:10 says, “For who has despised the day of small things?” Don’t worry about STARTING small … just make sure the goal – the vision – is BIG and unlimited.

Associate with positive winners! It would be better to be alone, and hang out with Jesus, than to associate with the wrong people. There’s an old saying, “If you want to see what you’ll become, look at the people you’re with whom you associate.” This is “the law of the group.” We associate ourselves with people we are like.

Find somebody who is positive and successful and spend quality time with them. If you can’t find anyone like that, then spend lots of time with Jesus the Messiah in fellowship, in His Word, and in prayer. I always enjoy when I can be away from people so I can spend more time talking to Jesus.

MUSIC

Project yourself into your visions and goals. A successful hedging investor in the commodities futures market has to do two (2) things:

1. He has to mentally place himself in the trade; and,

2. He has to ask himself, “Do I have the product or not?”

These two factors will determine the position a successful hedge investor will take. It’s the same way when you plan BIG works for God:

1. You have to mentally place yourself in the vision. See yourself at each stage of the growth. Then PLAN and PRAY accordingly. Pray ahead of time for each stage of development.

2. Ask yourself (ahead of time) at each stage of the project / vision: “Do I have what I need?” If “Yes,” pray and plan for the proper implementation. If “No,” pray and receive in faith the people and things you need.

As your vision develops and comes to pass you will need a network. A network is comprised of:

Logistics;

Communication; and,

Funding.

You need to pray ahead of time for these and receive them by faith. And don’t always look at the easy way or the path of least resistance. Also, not every package that comes your way (that has your name on it) is necessarily from God. It might be from the devil. It might be from a Christian. For example, you might receive an offer of funding or help from a Christian source, but make sure you pray about it before receiving it. It may NOT be God’s will. I’ve given lots of money back to people after they gave it to me, and sometimes when it was offered to me.

Read 2 Chronicles 25:9. King Amaziah had hired 100,000 mighty men to help him fight and had paid 100 talents of silver. Afterwards the man of God told King Amaziah not to go carry out his plans to use these men. Amaziah then told the man of God, “What shall we do for the 100 talents that I have given them?” And the man of God answered him, “But God is able to give you much more than this.”

How LARGE can you ASK?

How BIG can you THINK?

“Now unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ASK or THINK, according to the power that works in us …”
[Ephesians 3:20]

TRY THIS VISION:

A Holy Spirit baptized church or Messianic synagogue in every neighborhood and village of the earth.

A Holy Spirit baptized witness in every house, home, or family of the earth.

Take this message, my friend, and reach the whole world with the Good News of Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel.

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

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,
Prince Handley

HOW TO GET OUT OF WHERE YOU’RE AT

APOSTLE HANDLEY DAILY MESSAGE

HOW TO GET OUT OF WHERE YOU’RE AT

Please email this message to a friend.

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


HOW TO GET OUT OF WHERE YOU’RE AT

Are you in a place in your life or ministry where you think: “I will never get out of this situation!” Then you probably won’t. The Bible tells us, “For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” [Proverbs 23:7] Let us rephrase it to make it personal: “For as YOU think in YOUR heart, so are YOU.”

This scripture means more than, “If you dwell on negative, fearful thoughts most of the time, then you’re a negative, fearful person.” It actually means these things will come to pass in your life. It’s not just that you experienced these things over and over and they caused you to be that way. But conversely … your mind caused you to experience them!

The battleground is in your mind. That’s where your future is set! Your future isn’t dependent upon where you grew up or from what family you came. Your future is set for success if you are born again and of the royal seed of Abraham through the shed blood of Christ. But … you have to control your thoughts to line up with your Father’s promises.

Your thoughts … just like dreams … come from one of three (3) sources: God, yourself, or the devil. Don’t let Satan lie to you and tell you: “You will never get out of this situation.” “You will never have victory in this matter.” “You will never pay all those bills off.” “You will never reach every nation, tribe, language group, and race of the earth for Christ.” The devil will tell you, “You’re too young, you’re too old, you’re not smart enough, you have too much education and it has hurt you.”

Remember the life of Queen Esther whom we studied last newsletter. She was so confident in God that she didn’t ask for anything to take into the king’s court on her first appearance to Ahasuerus. Whatever she desired would have been given to her. [Esther 2:13] “And Esther obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins.” [Esther 2:17] God can give you favor in whatever situation you find yourself. But you have to BELIEVE, OBEY, and CHOOSE to live in FAITH and VICTORY.

You may be in a jail cell. But God! Those are powerful words … think about them: “But God …” Jesus was taken from the wooden cross stake after having been crucified and laid in the tomb. “BUT GOD raised Him from the dead.” [Acts 13:30] I was a scheduled speaker at a large interfaith conference where I was Dean of the ministry school and met a brother, a minister, who had been sentenced to prison for life. He had been an attorney and was convicted of crimes by the federal government in the USA that resulted in his life sentence.

After being committed to prison he gave his life to Christ. One day, without advance notification, guards came and escorted him out of his prison cell and he was released permanently. “But God …” What is your situation? This relationship of ours with God, the Father, is a MIRACLE relationship. Never forget it! It has all happened as a result of the resurrection …. AND … the Holy Spirit is God’s agent on earth to supply the resurrection power of Christ. Believe God!

You must control your thoughts. “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God [the Word of God], and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” [2 Corinthians 10:5]

If you do not cast down Satan’s lies, if you listen to them … or if you choose to dwell on your own negative thoughts of defeat, poverty, and sickness … you will limit your life. God is NOT limited by your family, your background, your education, your companion. God is limited by your FAITH.

Choose to dwell on thoughts of life and hope and positivity. “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore CHOOSE LIFE, that both you and your future posterity may live.” [Deuteronomy 30:19]

Is your life dull … boring? It’s because you’re not believing God for exciting things. Find a promise (or promises) in God’s Word that pertain to the thing(s) you want, and then believe God for them.

If it’s a new car, then go down to the dealership, find the model and color you really want and believe God for it. Put it on your prayer list. Ask God to show you if there’s something He would like you to do for Him. If it’s a husband or wife you want, then tell God what you’re looking for.

I was speaking at a large singles’ convention recently. I was late (it wasn’t my fault) and they had been waiting for six hours (in their seats) for me to arrive. Many people were saved and many were healed instantly with MIRACLES from God.

While speaking, I approached a young lady in the audience and asked her if she was praying for a husband. She said “Yes.” I asked her what kind she was praying for. She couldn’t answer me specifically. I said to her (and to the congregation) “How will God know what kind of husband to give you? Tell Him what you want!” “Do you want a white husband, a black husband, or a green husband? Do you want a tall husband or a pygmy? Intelligent … or unintelligent?” Finally, she got the point. Be specific in your praying.

Also, if you’re single, be specific in your goals before you go on a date. This will help you get your prayers answered. You have to come to the place AHEAD OF TIME, where if you’re tempted with sex, you can say to your date: “I really love / like you, but I want to please God … I love Him more … and I don’t want to have sex unless I’m married.”

My purpose in writing is to get you out of where you’re at. Here’s what to do:

Find something God wants to do … that’s near to His heart.

Find something you want to do … that’s near to your heart.

Join the thing(s) you want to do WITH and UNDER the things God wants to do.

IF YOUR PLAN FITS INTO GOD’S PLAN, YOU’LL HAVE GOD’S FAITH … AND GOD’S FAITH ALWAYS WORKS!

Bring (plead) your case before God. “Put me in remembrance: let us plead together; you declare, that you may be justified.” [Isaiah 43:26]

You have to get SERIOUS with God and PLEAD YOUR CASE BEFORE HIM. Lay out the facts. Show Him the paper work if you have to. How would you appear before a human judge who doesn’t even have one iota of the authority of Almighty God, the Judge of the Universe?

This is more than just praying! You’re standing seriously before the Court of Heaven pleading your case. It’s a “life or death” situation because you don’t want to end up where you’re at. You may be 8 years old … or 108 years old. But, the KEY element here is that you need to be FREE and PRODUCTIVE so that life can be ministered and multiplied to millions of people around the world through the ministry God has given you!

Give due diligence to present your case. Tell God WHY and to WHAT ADVANTAGE it is to both you and Him for you to be released from this situation in which you find yourself. If you are in that situation because of sin or disobedience, then repent and ask God for forgiveness. Assure Him that it will NOT happen again. (You may be there for a “learning experience” because God has been merciful upon you in that you would not learn the lesson another way.)

You may be there because the enemy has tricked you … deceived you. Explain this to God, and appeal to His mercy. Remember, God’s enemy is your enemy. This gives you favor, just as Queen Esther had favor … just as Joseph had favor. And it may be, just as in both the lives of Joseph and Queen Esther, that God will turn this situation around and use it “to save many people”.

When you leave the Heavenly Court, do so with humility, respect, and thankfulness. Wait, listen, and obey!

Write down your goals and the things you want God to do through you. Write them down in the form of goals or concise statements: what you WILL accomplish, by the grace of God. At the top of the page write these words: “By the grace of God and His MIRACLES, I will:”

Then underneath write out the prayer goals that you want the Holy Spirit to accomplish through you. You may have to pray for days, months, or years. Remember what Jesus taught us in Luke 18:1-8, recorded below:

“And He spoke a parable unto them to this end, that men should always pray, and not faint; saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, ‘Avenge me of my adversary.’

And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I fear not God, nor regard man; yet because this widow troubles me, I will avenge her. Unless by her continual coming to me she wearies me.’

And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge says. And shall not God avenge His own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes to earth, shall He find faith on the earth?”

I have things for which I have prayed daily for decades. Years ago I spent time alone in a hotel room writing down the goals that I wanted Christ to accomplish through me in the future. They were BIG and I thought many might not come to pass for 50 years. However, almost all of them came to pass within a few years.

Believe God for BIG things … so big you could never do them. That way, everyone, including yourself and your enemies, will know it is God when they come to pass! Claim Jeremiah 33:3 which says, “Call unto me and I will answer you and show you GREAT and MIGHTY things you do not know about.”

When you’re out of where you’re at, then don’t go back. Be productive, bear fruit for the glory of God … and out of thankfulness for what He has done for you. Remember, God brought the children of Israel OUT … that He might bring them IN. He delivered them from Egypt, that He might bring them into a wide, wealthy place of ENLARGEMENT to be a praise among the nations.

God is bringing you OUT … that He might bring you IN … and save alive many people!

YOU HAVE NOT PASSED THIS WAY BEFORE

What is the circumstance that is standing between you and your Promised Land?

What is keeping you from attaining the Holy Spirit goals you have been praying for?

What is the lie the enemy keeps telling you that has kept you from entering in?

TODAY IS YOUR DAY OF DELIVERANCE

After the children of Israel lodged for three days at the brink of the Jordan River, Joshua sent officers through the camp who commanded the people:

“When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests, the Levites, bearing it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it. Yet there shall be a space between you and the ark, about 2,000 cubits (1,000 yards or 914 meters) by measure. Do not come near the ark, that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way before.” [Joshua 3:1-4]

The Hebrew root word for “passed” used above is “abar” [ah-var] which means “to pass over, go through, pass beyond, or to make a transition [figuratively or literally].”

To arrive INSIDE your Promised Land, you will have to go through a TRANSITION!
The Hebrew word “abar” also means “to pass from one side to the other side.”

Interestingly enough, a derivative of the word “abar” is “Ibriy” which means “Hebrew” and is the ethnic description of Abraham and his seed line, who was a descendant of Eber, the great grandson of Noah’s son Shem.

Genesis 14:13 talks about “Abram the Hebrew.” Exodus 7:16 mentions “the LORD God of the Hebrews.” Here “Hebrews” represents a tribe of Semites (sons of Shem).

Abraham “crossed over” the Euphrates River from Haran to Canaan
, the land God promised him. How did he do it? . . . through OBEDIENCE! Abraham, his wife Sarah, and his nephew Lot had originally left Ur of the Chaldees with his father, Terah, and arrived in Haran. It’s possible the LORD had wanted Terah to take the trip of faith from Haran and he may not have obeyed; possibly that is why God chose Abraham.

If you don’t do it, God will find someone who will! Are you willing to make the transition from your comfort zone to a blessed place where millions of other people will be blessed by your life and ministry?

The people of Israel were commanded to stay a great distance from the Ark as it would show them the way (verses 3 and 4). You are NOT to jump ahead of the LORD but to honor His holiness, just as the people honored the sacredness of the Ark. Let God lead you . . . and then follow Him in faith. He understands when you’re not sure; but He also understands when you don’t obey.

If your plans fit into God’s plans . . .

You will have God’s faith . . .

And God’s faith always works!

Then you can pass over and make the transition to the Promised Land: the completion of the Holy Spirit goals you have prayed for so long!

THE MOVE

Do not be afraid of doing the wrong right thing!

Listen to God and make a decision!

This message is being written to you whether you are 5 years of age or 105. When I was a little boy, about 10 years of age, I prophesied that men would travel to the moon. No one ever dreamed, or talked about, such a thing happening. I also prophesied that I would be a minister when I grew up. The latter was probably more of a long shot statistically than the former (at least to those who knew me). Many years later both prophecies came to pass. Think BIG and prophesy BIG when you know it is God.

What stirs you? What makes you come to life? In the last edition, The Secret, we talked about spending time in the Word of God. When you do, things will begin to click in your life. God will provide for you and you will be productive.

Change your thinking! Do not limit yourself by your own thoughts!

THINK BIG

BELIEVE

RECEIVE

ACT

MULTIPLY

COMMISSION

Remember the acronym: True Blood Ran At Mount Calvary.

God is NOT old; He is eternally young. He is NOT limited, even by your disobedience.

In 2 Kings Chapter 7 we see the productivity and success of anointed common sense. There was a famine in the land. Also, the Syrian army laid siege to the Israelites in this area. Four (4) lepers were outside the city gates. They were facing death because of famine, just like the other people. But they were also vexed with an incurable disease: leprosy. The king and other people would not allow them to come into the city.

On a certain day the four lepers said to one another, Why are we sitting here until we die? If we say, We will enter the city, the famine is in the city, and we shall die there. And if we sit here, we die also. Now therefore, come, let us surrender to the army of the Syrians. If they keep us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall only die.

When they came to the outskirts of the Syrian camp, to their surprise no one was there. For the LORD had caused the army of the Syrians to hear the noise of chariots and the noise of horses — the noise of a great army; so they (the Syrians) said to one another, Look, the king of Israel has hired against us the kings of the Hittites and the kings of the Egyptians to attack us.

Therefore the Syrians arose at twilight and fled; they left everything in their camp intact: food, silver, gold, clothing, tents, horses, and donkeys. They even threw away their weapons as they fled.

In 24 hours the economy changed … literally overnight. It had been prophesied by Elisha the day before (2 Kings 7:1). God found four lepers who had spiritual common sense. As soon as the lepers made a MOVE, God caused the Syrians to hear the sound of a great army.

THERE ARE THINGS THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN IN LIFE UNLESS YOU … OR SOMEONE … USES SPIRITUAL COMMON SENSE AND TAKES A MOVE IN FAITH.

THERE ARE THINGS IN YOUR LIFE THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN UNTIL YOU USE SPIRITUAL COMMON SENSE AND TAKE A MOVE IN FAITH.

IF YOU ARE DYING SPIRITUALLY WHERE YOU ARE AT – IF YOU ARE NOT PRODUCTIVE – THEN USE SPIRITUAL COMMON SENSE AND MAKE THE MOVE AFTER YOU HAVE HEARD FROM GOD.

You may be in a situation now very similar to that of the four lepers. You are perishing spiritually where you are. That is, your life is not as productive as God wants it to be. You want BIG things to happen in your life: to reach people around the world for Christ.

TAKE A STEP OF FAITH … MAKE THE MOVE ABOUT WHICH GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU.

What do you have to lose? Read the Word of God and LISTEN. Talk to Him and LISTEN. Pray in tongues and LISTEN. Then do what He tells you.

Jesus said, The field is the world. (Matthew 13:38-43) Jesus also taught that if YOU want to get the treasure out of the field, you have to buy the WHOLE FIELD. (Matthew 13:44) If you want to reach China, then you have to purchase the whole field. If you want to reach Iran, then you have to purchase the whole field. Meditate on this!!

Nothing happened until the four lepers took THE MOVE in the right direction.

Nothing happened until the priests of Israel took THE MOVE and put their feet in the River Jordan.

When you take THE MOVE of obedient faith … then … the God of Israel will cause things to happen. He will make a way for you!

Do not be afraid of doing the wrong right thing!

The destiny of nations and people groups is hanging in the balance.

Lay your left hand on your head and lay your right hand upon your heart and repeat these three (3) words:

NATIONS … NATIONS … NATIONS.

THE ANOINTING FOR SUCCESS

APOSTLE TALK – Future News Now!
WWW.REALMIRACLES.COM
with Prince Handley

THE ANOINTING FOR SUCCESS

Your enemy, the devil, will lie to you through people (even Christians), through situations, through your mind, through demons: he is a master of deception.

But I have GOOD NEWS for you. Your Friend Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel, will tell you the Truth. He is The Truth; His Word is Truth.

Listen to the voice of God. Read His Word and learn from Him. Pray and hear His Spirit.

Stop worrying about the giants in front of you: the forces, voices and beings that threaten you and keep you from being creative, productive and powerful. David had brothers who THOUGHT the giant, Goliath, was too big to fight. But David THOUGHT the giant was TOO BIG TO MISS! [1 Samuel 17:47]

How do you SEE your challenges? How do you PERCEIVE them: as obstacles … or as opportunities? When Moses sent the 12 spies into the Promised Land the ten men of fear had a different perspective than the two men of faith, Caleb and Joshua. The men of fear saw the people of the land as giants and themselves as but grasshoppers in their sight.

The 10 spies gave the people of Israel a bad report of the land, which they had spied out, saying, We are NOT able to go up against this people, for they are stronger than we are. But Caleb said, Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well ABLE to overcome. (Numbers 13:30)

The Hebrew word able used in this passage (yakol) means to have power, or the capacity to prevail or succeed. My wonderful mother many times read me the little children book about the train going up the hill, pulling a load, and saying I KNOW I can, I KNOW I can, I KNOW I can!

David succeeded in killing the giant, Goliath, the same way the two men of faith, Caleb and Joshua, succeeded in entering the promise land: because he saw, as they did, obstacles as opportunities for MIRACLES: avenues through which God could be glorified! The size of the person is more important than the size of the problem. Who are you on the inside and Whom do you trust!

Do not focus on the giants … focus on God. That is why the enemy lies to you. The devil wants to get your attention away from your Heavenly Father: away from His love for you and His ability to provide for you.

I remember teaching my first born son how to sail. We were in a harbor of the ocean where many yachts and boats were maneuvering. My son kept his attention on another yacht … what to miss … instead of our tack (where we should be going). He was focusing on what to miss instead of where to go. So it is with many Christians: focusing on the giants instead of the opportunities and goals.

Stop worrying about whether you are going to sin and start praising and THANKING God for helping you to live holy!

Stop being concerned about failure and start praising and THANKING God for helping you to be successful.

Stop concentrating on being broken and start praising and THANKING Jesus for making you whole. That is why He died on the cross … but you must appropriate that wholeness by faith.

Also, pray AHEAD OF TIME for what you’re going to do AFTER YOUR VICTORY!

Many people have what psychologists label a fear of failure; but I would say, in the people I have counseled through the years, just as many or more have a fear of success! King Saul was an example of this. I think he had a fear of success. Pray AHEAD OF TIME and receive the anointing for what you are going to do AFTER YOUR VICTORY!

Do not give in and do not give up. If you do NOT quit, you will win!

I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)

With God ALL things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)
