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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Enjoy your work;

Do what you want; and,

Maintain victory so that you can always take action.

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

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

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

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

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

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

There was a movie several years ago titled Stuck On You which starred Matt Damon and Cher. It was about two brothers who were Siamese twins. Finally, the brothers realized they needed to be separated (physically) in order to do what each brother wanted to fulfill in his lifetime. They reached this decision when one brother asked the other, “What is that thing you want to do MOST in the world?” And then he challenged his brother with this admonition: “You have to do it!”

Let me recommend eight (8) steps to take in order to help get you out of your “desensitized spirituality” and into the vortex of God’s anointing:

[1] As much as possible, stop all activity for a while, even ministry.

[2] Get “loose,” relax, and enjoy God.

NOTE: Many times you will be tempted to start a new ministry or outreach right away (while relaxing in your time of rest). That would be like shooting yourself in the foot while you’re walking to the hospital. If God has given you NEW ideas or directives, take skeletal notes (or even copious notes if you feel the necessity). Then store the notes for the future time of implementing the project(s). You will find that, as you’re relaxing in the sunshine of God’s love, an abundance of ideas will come to you.

[3] Take time to dream.

As we studied in the Introductory Module, Albert Einstein, perhaps the greatest mathematician and physicist of the last century, had two (2) major assets:

A childlike questioning character (like a four or five-year-old); and,
An intellectual capacity to think beyond.

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

What can you do to reach every nation and tribe for Messiah Yeshua?
What is the KEY thing you can do that will impact nations the most?
What are new ways to market the Good News?
What are some secrets of the universe that nobody knows?
What do you [God] like about me [yourself] the most?

How long has it been since you:

Discarded all your ideas about how to minister?
Researched new trends and cultural evolutionary movements?
Asked a lost person how they would reach the world for Christ?
Studied the ants?
Studied seeds, climatology, and weather patterns?

[4] Know who you are. Read through the epistles; learn once again WHO you are in Christ and WHAT you have in Christ.

You have to come to the place, once again, where you KNOW the calling and destiny that has been designed for you before the foundation of the world.

True holiness, and also true Biblical prosperity, is to KNOW that you’re working “hand-in-hand” with God to shake nations for Christ.

[5] Meditate.

Find the scriptures (rhema) that speak to you concerning your calling and destiny and dwell on them. Speak them to yourself.

See yourself doing the things involved with your calling and destiny. Image them upon the screen of your mind. See the places and the activities and then THANK God for their fulfillment. Receive them by faith.

Speak,

See,

Thank God,

Receive.

[6] Change your environment (and maybe your friends).

This is why God sent his servants into different areas, sometimes as a result of hard-times. It’s a lot easier if you do it for yourself, with the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Imitational faith, the copying of ministry styles used by others, results in not only lack of creativity, but also “inbreeding” in the Body of Christ. Study more here >>> about Imitational Faith.

Be yourself . . . be original!Don’t be afraid to be different. Study the lifestyles of God’s servants through the centuries: in the Bible, and throughout Christian church history.

[7] Re-evaluate your goals.

Which ones have been accomplished?

Are there any goals that you feel you should scrap for now, or permanently?

Which ones are not accomplished yet? Ask yourself:

Why are they not accomplished?

Where are you in your time line, or schedule, for their fulfillment?

What action will you take to implement them in a timely fashion?

Are there any new goals or projects God wants you to undertake?

If so, do they fit into the general scheme of your other goals?

Are they completely separate from your other goals?

[8] Make your plans fit into God’s plans.

The GREATEST ADVICE I can give you concerning your plans is as follows:

IF YOUR PLANS FIT INTO GOD’S PLANS . . .
YOU WILL HAVE GOD’S FAITH . . .
AND GOD’S FAITH ALWAYS WORKS!

Cry out to God and tell Him you want to be used greatly by Him … that you don’t want to come home to Heaven until you’ve fulfilled, with excellence, your calling and your destiny.

And remember the words of King Solomon: “He that fears God will come forth of them all.”

We are to fear God . . . NOT men, demons, or anything else. The enemy knows that if he can get you to fear anyone or anything other than God, he can cancel your fear of God and thereby void the operation of wisdom in your life . . . at least temporarily until you become aware of what’s happening.

You have to “shut off” the ideas of fear and replace them with IDEAS OF FAITH. Use visual thoughts when you have thoughts of concern. You will eliminate most of Satan’s attacks on your mind. You will also destroy Satanic activity in its tracks!

When you have thoughts of fear, replace them with VISUAL THOUGHTS. So when you have thoughts of fear . . . about your family, your possessions, your health, your ministry . . . replace them with VISUAL THOUGHTS. See the Holy Angels ministering to, blessing and guarding your family, your possessions, your health, and your ministry.

By visualizing your thoughts, you can even add emphasis (power and potency) to them by decreeing them. Use the Holy Angels in your thoughts . . . see them helping you. See the BLOOD of Christ over everything God has given you by birth, adoption, and assignment. To help you with strategies for success and goal attainment in the LORD’s work (or any work whose goal is to help build God’s Kingdom) I recommend the following book: The Art of Christian Warfare: Rules of Engagement.

EIGHT TWIN STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESS & CONTINUED VISION – PART B


I guarantee you success and continued vision! You will not be barren or unfruitful, if you practice what I am teaching you in this series. Also, you will have an abundant entrance into Heaven. Remember, there are rewards in Heaven for your labor of love and faithfulness here on earth.

Jesus wants to be able to say to you when you enter Heaven: “Well done, you good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things; I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of the Lord.” [ Matthew 25:21]

You need continued vision for vitality. The Bible says, “Without a vision, the people perish.” [Proverb 29:18] To be successful in this life and to prepare for life in Heaven . . . and to maintain continued vision so we will be fresh and vibrant . . . there are eight (8) TWIN STRATEGIES to help you.

In the last newsletter we discussed the FIRST TWO TWINS for success and continued vision:

Enthusiastic Desire
PLUS Faith; and,

Decisive Nature PLUS Virtue.

To review these first two twins, see Part A.

We will discuss the next two (2) twins in this newsletter. They are as follows:

Specialized Knowledge PLUS Spiritual Knowledge; and,

Quest for Excellence
PLUS Temperance.

The remaining twins for success and continued vision will be discussed in subsequent ezine teachings.

SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE
plus SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE

If you are going to be used greatly by God, then you will have to make up your mind ahead of time that you are willing to do things . . . and exploits . . . that are out of the ordinary. Yeshua (Jesus) did not fit into the normal mold of man, even though He was God in human flesh. He was a perfect man . . . but he was focused on doing the will of God . . . not the will of man.

Likewise, if you make the decision to do the will of God during your time here on earth, then neither will you will fit into the normal mold of man: you will seem eccentric to the world. The definition of eccentric is as follows: 1. Unconventional and slightly strange; 2. Not placed centrally or having its axis placed centrally. But you see, this definition is from the perspective of what is “normal” and God did NOT call us to be normal by the world’s standards. Rather, the normal Christian life is abnormal to the world.

The origin of the word “eccentric” is from the Greek “ekkentros“: “ek” meaning “out of” plus “kentron” meaning “center,” therefore the meaning of: “out of center.” John Steward Mill gives an insightful comment of truth concerning this:

“Eccentricity has always abounded when and where strength of character has abounded; and the amount of eccentricity in society has always been proportioned to the amount of genius, mental vigor and moral courage which it contained. That so few men now dare to be eccentric marks the chief danger of our time.”

Specialized knowledge is highly dependent upon genius AND mental vigor. The second of these two, mental vigor, can complement what may be lacking in the first of the two: genius.

What is that GREAT THING you want to do for God? Do you have the SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE to attain that goal? Are you willing to sacrifice, study, and research to obtain the knowledge required to complete the task? Don’t be a lazy follower of the Lord. God did not call us to complacency, but rather to excellence. I have been on this planet for several scores of years, and I still spend much time studying and researching to find NEW, BETTER, and MORE PRODUCTIVE ways to reach the world for Messiah and to help my fellow man. Don’t be afraid . . . and never get too old . . . to go back to school for more formal education.

One of the best schools for people to learn MEDIA PRODUCTION, and one which I fully endorse, is Full Sail Real World Education based in Orlando, Florida, USA. They may be contacted by phone at 800.226.7625 or 407.679.6333. FAX to 407.678.0070. You may contact them on the web at WWW.FULLSAIL.COM. Some of their major fields of study are:

Film;
Digital Media;
Recording Arts;
Computer Animation;
Entertainment Business;
Show Production and Touring;
Game Design and Development.

We are living in a day like the Prophet Daniel described where “knowledge shall be increased” and we should take advantage of it 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 other ways to influence society and to reach the world for Messiah other than through the internet and social media. 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, Jesus the Messiah, then we have eternal life. [John 3:16] The measure of a man’s success in life is how many of his children make it to Heaven. If we know the Lord, we are living part of our eternal life NOW, while here on earth, and then in Heaven. It will never end!

Yeshua taught us, “What does it profit a man if he gains all the world, and loses his own soul? Also, what shall a man give in exchange, or to buy back, his soul?” [Mark 16:26 – Mark 8:36]

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]

We should BELIEVE this and EXPECT it. Our children should be our greatest disciples. If not, something is wrong, or out of place.

Learn the PROMISES in Gods Word; believe them and appropriate them by faith. Take quality time daily to study and meditate in God’s Word. I usually separate my “study time” from my “devotional time.” In the morning, before I start my active day, I have my devotional time where I just want God to speak to me and minister to me through His Word, even before I have my prayer time. I made a rule years ago: “No Bible, no breakfast.” Eat the Word of God first. Jesus said, “It is written: Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” [Matthew 4:4]

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 knowledge gained through the acquisition of physical skills or craftsmanship. Bezaleel was such a man:

“And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying, See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, to devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, and in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.”
[Torah: Exodus 31:1-5]

When SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE is combined with SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE, there is a holy anointing upon our lives: our talents, skills, and abilities. Together, they not only complement each other, but they synergize each other.

But always remember: “Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.” [1 Corinthians 8:1] Temper your knowledge (both specialized and spiritual) with LOVE!

Daniel was a leader, counselor, and basically Prime Minister
in three different foreign kingdoms (in which he was captive) partly because of his knowledge base. The Bible tells us concerning Daniel and the three Hebrew teenagers who accompanied him into captivity:

“Children in whom was no blemish, but well favored, and skillful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability . . .”
[Daniel 1:4]

QUEST FOR EXCELLENCE plus TEMPERANCE

The Bible tells us another of the secrets of Daniel’s success:

“It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom a hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom; and over these three presidents: of whom Daniel was first, so that the princes might give accounts unto the presidents, and the king should have no damage.”

“Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an EXCELLENT spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.” [Daniel 6:1-3]

The word here used for “excellent” is “yateer” and in its root form means “preeminent, or very exceedingly excellent.” That’s because the spirit that was in Daniel was the Ruach ha Chodesh (the Holy Spirit). Because of Daniel’s separation and devotion to God, he manifested a quality of excellence in whatever he attempted.

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.

“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]

Don’t compare yourself with someone else; just do what you know God wants you to do. Do your best, don’t be satisfied with low quality work or effort. It’s interesting that the origin of the word “mediocre” is from the Latin “mediocris” which means of “middle height or degree” but literally means “somewhat rugged or mountainous.” It is derived from the words “medius” for “middle” and “ocris” for “rugged mountain.”

To do mediocre work is actually harder on you because you are causing your conscience to condemn you. It is like climbing a rugged mountain. The Bible says, “For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.” [1 John 3:20] The EXCELLENT choice may be more of a sacrifice temporarily, but it will be easier on you in the long term. You will never go wrong striving for excellence!

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 ourself, and doing unto him as we would have him do to us, is the guideline our Master set before us.

Practice excellence in your WORK. Be a good steward for you earthly employer and your Heavenly employer. Colossians 3:22 (Brit Chadashah) 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 ezine teaching to help develop excellence in acumen; 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.”


The word “leisure” comes from the Latin word “licere” which means “to be permitted.” The Latin word for “work” is “negotium” which means “nonleisure.” Most so-called advanced societies today have turned this around and view leisure as nonwork!

Tim Hansel, in his book When I Relax I Feel Guilty, points out that the Greeks stressed the centrality of lesiure, but they added another important facet. The Greek word for “work” was “ascholia,” which means “absence of leisure.” The word for leisure was “schole,” which leads to the English words for school and scholarship. Leisure, then, was a time for growth and development.

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!

In the last newsletter we discussed the FIRST TWO TWINS for success and continued vision:

Enthusiastic Desire PLUS Faith; and,

Decisive Nature PLUS Virtue.

In this newsletter we discussed the third and fourth twins:

Specialized Knowledge
PLUS Spiritual Knowledge; and,

Quest for Excellence PLUS Temperance.

The remaining twins for success and continued vision will be discussed in subsequent newsletters.

Trusting that this teaching will move you forward on your quest for excellence in success and continued vision. To resource the other parts of this series (this is Part B), go to: Part A, Part C, Part D (Final)

THE NEW YOU


When I was a young boy there was a family of trash collectors who would come down our alley every week to collect trash from the neighborhood and the local grocery.

I always felt good when they came by because they called me by name, and because of that I felt important. I also noticed a very marked difference about them: they always exuded joy. And after many years I discovered why: they knew Jesus!

No one in the community – wealthy, poor, business owners, educators – had the joy they had. They were prosperous in their hearts. As they folded boxes and collected trash, they manifested the presence of the Lord.

My family knew many people: political, religious, business, educational, and union leaders. However, NO family left their mark on a little boy like the Turner family: the trash collectors. The seed of God’s JOY in them made an indelible imprint on my mind and heart.

Through the years I have come to realize that one of the marks of the Christian – even in sorrow and trials – is JOY.

“For the JOY of the Lord is your strength.” [Nehemiah 8:10]

“You will show me the path of life: in your presence is fullness of JOY; and at your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.” [Psalm 16:11]

“And the disciples were filled with JOY, and with the Holy Ghost.” [Acts 13:52]

I know that I will see the Turner family in Heaven, and have the privilege to live with them forever. I would rather collect trash and be filled with God’s JOY than have all the riches of this world.

There are three (3) instructions the Lord has given me to communicate with you in this teaching. The reason I shared with you about the Turner family is because JOY will be the resultant of these three instructions from the Lord … JOY will be imparted to you as a permanent commodity as you learn to draw near the Spirit and fulfill your objectives on Planet Earth. Below are the three instructions from the Lord.

INSTRUCTION 1

You’re about to lose your vision. Don’t do it. Don’t give up!


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

“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” [Proverb 29:18a]

Because your vision is LARGER … and WORLD ENCOMPASSING, it has taken longer to develop. It has taken longer to prepare the natural infrastructure and logistics. These have been in a stage of preparation behind the scenes by the Holy Spirit and the Holy Watchers (the Holy Angels).

Also, the enemy has lied to you, telling you that your vision objectives are not going to be fulfilled. You can prove the devil wrong! Here’s how: the Lord told me to tell you to look at the bits and pieces that have been, and are already, coming in place. These are the tips of the iceberg.

The system is in place in God’s mind and economy because of your prayers, fasts, sacrifices, and faith. But now the enemy is trying to discourage you so that you will drop your vision … and in doing so it would be aborted. But the Spirit of God is NOT going to let you do that, and He is sending me to VALIDATE your victory.

You will SUCCEED. As a matter of fact, God wants you to ask Him for MORE than you have been asking. Here’s a secret: share your NEW JOY that will be imparted to you with the Lord. “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” [Psalm 37:4] The Hebrew word used here for delight means to have pleasurable emotion. You’re going to go through!

Listen to the radio program titled “Go Through Closed Doors” on the RealMiracles website (instructions are at the bottom of the end of this newsletter).

INSTRUCTION 2

God isn’t finished with you yet, my friend. Many of you reading this newsletter are about to experience a MAJOR CHANGE in your ministry and life. For some of you this word is a confirmation of what God has already been speaking to you. For others, you will receive the witness of the Holy Spirit concerning the same.

You will begin to see how things in the past have been used by God to fashion the NEW YOU!

Some of these things in the past were brought about by the faults and sins of other people … some were brought about as a result of your own disobedience … and some through obedience. BUT GOD …!

“BUT GOD … even when we were dead in sins … has quickened us together with Christ …” [Ephesians 2:4-7]

“BUT GOD raised Him from the dead.” [Acts 13:30]

“BUT GOD commends His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
[Romans 5:8]

BUT GOD can turn around the plans and devices of the enemy and make them serve God’s purpose. God loves you, my friend! If God can use a murderer like Moses, if God can use a fornicator like Samson, if God can use a murderer and adulterer like King David … all of whom repented and were cleansed … then God can use you! Nobody loves you like Jesus!

You will SEE how things in the past have brought you to be the NEW YOU: one who has a close, intimate walk with the Holy Spirit. Trials and hard times have made you a new sharp threshing instrument. But don’t live in the past … and don’t be the old you any longer.

That’s why God is bringing changes in your life and ministry: geographical changes, ministry changes, relational changes. And, in the future you will look back again and SEE how you were like Ruth in the Tanakh (the Old Testament). Read the Book of Ruth; it contains only four chapters but the Spirit will speak many great things to you concerning your future.

The NEW YOU is being marked with the JOY of the Lord! This will be your sign and the enemy cannot hinder it. The joy will be your sustaining strength, and because of this strength you will have peace in all matters and concerns of life: large and small; familial and interpersonal; secular and spiritual; business and recreational. As a result, you will REST more: physically and mentally. Your life – your days on earth – will be extended.

Also, concomitant with this MARK – the joy of the Lord – will be extra elements of angelic protection.


Your life and ministry will be in retrospect like Ruth’s.

  • 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. (You will extend the seed line of Messiah by the people you bring to Him.)

Listen to the radio program titled “Release God’s Will” on the RealMiracles website (instructions are at the bottom of the end of this newsletter).


INSTRUCTION 3

Never be afraid to leave your comfort zone.

If Ruth had not left her comfort zone, none of the blessings would have overtaken her.

I know of a case concerning a businessman who was called to preach several years ago. He put off the call for several years until he felt he could financially make the move. When he was financially secure, he decided to quit his business and obey the Lord’s leading.

He told his pastor in Michigan (USA) that he wanted to go into the ministry. The pastor told him that he would like him to preach in 30 days at the Sunday evening service. The man prepared a message and when that Sunday evening arrived he went to the pulpit to preach. When he opened his mouth to preach … nothing came out! He could NOT speak. As far as I know, he never regained the ability to speak.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German theologian, was martyred by the Nazis at the age of 39 in 1945. He was involved with the German underground and hanged as a result. In his book, The Cost of Discipleship, he wrote:

“The new situation must be created – the impossible situation in which everything is staked solely on the word of Jesus. The road to faith passes through obedience to the call of Jesus. Unless a definite step is demanded, the call vanishes into thin air, and if people imagine that they can follow Jesus without taking this step, they are deluding themselves.” [1]

Don’t put off what God is calling you to do. You may have been serving God for years in ministry but you must realize there is NO seniority in God’s vineyard. If you don’t do the job, God will find someone else. Don’t be afraid to leave your comfort zone IF God is leading you to another field of ministry.

God is LARGE and IN CHARGE! Your identity is in Him!

Listen to the radio program titled “Know God’s Direction” on the RealMiracles website (instructions are at the bottom of the end of this newsletter).

SUMMARY

  • The NEW YOU is being marked with the JOY of the Lord.
  • Don’t lose your VISION … don’t give up.
  • Many are about to experience a MAJOR CHANGE.
  • You will REST more: physically and mentally.
  • You will have extra elements of ANGELIC PROTECTION.
  • Never be afraid to leave your COMFORT ZONE.
  • You will SUCCEED … your vision will come to pass.

Ask for GREATER things!

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:

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
