BINDING AND LOOSING
~ A MIRACLE PODCAST PRODUCTION ~

MUSIC / INTRO

A few years ago the LORD started speaking to me about “Binding and Loosing.” Although I knew the basic precepts of “Binding and Loosing” and had used those scriptural principles for years in situations dealing with spiritual authority, the LORD was impressing me to be more active and militant in the use of them.

Let’s first look into what the scripture says concerning this teaching of Jesus. After the Apostle Peter declared to Yeshua (Jesus), “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God,” the Lord gave him KEYS as to how he would build His Kingdom. He told Shimon (Peter):

And I will give unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven: and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
– Matthew 16:19 (NKJV)

A little while later – in teaching about dealing with problems in interpersonal relationships and also within the body of believers – Jesus said the following:

Assuredly I say unto you, Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven: and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
– Matthew 18:18 (NKJV)

Interestingly enough, if we examine this passage in the original language[See Footnotes at bottom of show notes for language info.] Jesus probably spoke Hebrew in both of these passages as He was teaching His talmidim (disciples) and they were ALL Jewish, but the text was later recorded into Koine Greek (the lingua franca of the day) – we see an amazing truth. In the original we are reading literally: “Whatever you bind (or loose) on earth shall already have been bound (or loosed) in heaven.” The verb form reflects action that has been achieved in the past has now become active in the present. The past action refers to Messiah’s complete triumph on the cross-stake.

Now that we have discussed this important truth, let me share how God dealt with me. Shortly after the LORD began speaking to me to be more active and militant in “binding and loosing” I was flying to Cincinnati (USA) to teach at a seminar and miracle meeting. A Baptist pastor picked me up at the airport and on the way to the church we had to put the automobile on a ferry or barge to cross a river. The pastor and I were outside the car on the boat ferry and he began to tell me an amazing thing.

He told me, “God has been dealing with me about ‘binding and loosing.’” I had NOT told him that the LORD had been dealing with me about the same thing. It was a blessed seminar with the presence of the Holy Spirit. However, I soon forgot about what the pastor had told me.

Later I was in Africa for about one month and the LORD worked mighty in MIRACLES ad healings and salvation … opening doors for me to minister in many public schools. The gifts of the Spirit operated wonderfully and students were healed and saved. The same day I returned home, I received a message from a pastor who asked me to come to his home and minister to a young minister. He told me the minister had a mighty youth ministry but was discouraged because of people in the “false covering” movement trying to hold him back and control him. I said to my friend, “I just returned from Africa and need to rest. I will not come now, but if the LORD leads me to come minister to the young man I will call you.”

About 3 days later (which was the last day the young man would be in town … he lived about 1,800 miles / 2900 km away), God told me to go visit him. I called my friend and told him and he invited me to dinner that evening. During my visit, the LORD gave me a prophecy for the young man. I told him, “Go back and start a church!” That church has different campuses in two different states and I think over 10,000 members.

While visiting at the pastor’s house, before I left, he told me, “There are some people you need to meet.” Again, I mentioned that I needed some rest; however, the LORD told me: “Meet these people.” I invited the people to my home, and what a blessing it was. There last name was Morse, and one of them had written a book titled, Exodus to a Hidden Valley,, by Eugene Morse. (There is also a Reader’s Digest account of their ministry; however, it is “toned down” as they had to work in collaboration with the publishers.)

There were three generations of them visiting me: grandfather, father and son. The family (from oldest to youngest) had ministered in Burma (Indo-China) for 51 years (from oldest to younngest) and had been imprisoned by the Communists three times. There was lots of demonization and false religions in that area in Southeast Asia: the majority praciticing Theravada-Buddhism with some of the tribal people practicing animism and shamanism.

The Morse’s told me that they had labored almost without fruit – without people coming to Christ – for years. Then, the LORD told them to “bind” Satan and cast him out of the areas where they would be ministering. Immediately they started seeing people come to Christ. Then, the LORD instructed them to “loose” the Holy Spirit” into the areas where they would be ministering. After that, a great harvest of souls – people receiving Christ – resulted. As I remember around 65,000 people received the LORD and many were baptized in water. They labored for the LORD among the Lisu tribe and helped in the migration – the escape – of 1,000’s of Christians into and through the jungle.

THE KEY

 God is waiting upon you to to do the “binding and loosing.” He is wanting YOU to do your part and work with Him in intercession. When you do your part – binding and loosing – then the finished work of Christ takes effect … and what you have bound or loosed … will already have been bound or loosed in Heaven!

 _____________


So, my challenge to you is this: Take advantage of “binding and loosing.” Your leader, Jesus the Messiah, taught this. And remember, “Whatever you bind (or loose) on earth shall already have been bound (or loosed) in heaven.” Listen to God … and NOT men!

What is that GREAT thing you want to do for God? What is the deep stirring in your heart for ministry unto the LORD? Nations and unreached tribal groups are hanging in the balance: waiting for you to be the one who reaches them … or, who coordinates projects to reach them … in these Last Days.

I have selected three (3) books which will help you to know what is getting ready to happen in these Last Days, plus provide you with the enablement – the POWER and GIFTINGS – to get the job done. Here they are … just click on the image.

Now … YOU can reach the world for Christ. And remember, “binding and loosing” can be used for other than ministry. Learn to use it actively and militantly … just like the LORD instructed me.

ADDENDUM

Recently the LORD instructed me to start a new project for Him in the Kurdish language. One of the attributes of the Holy Spirit is to “show us things to come.” After the LORD had us start this project, the Kurds recently took over the oil fields and the city of Kirkuk in Iraq. It is prime time to reach Kurdistan (the northern portion of Iraq and bordering Iran on the east) with the Good News of Jesus. Amazingly enough, the two books shown above, Map of the End Times and Flow Chart of Revelation reveal the specifics of Babylon in Iraq and its prophetic significance.

As far as I know, years ago I was the first teacher to write on the specifics of how Babylon in Revelation is a literal city. (Many prophecy teachers have taught for years that Babylon represents Rome and the Roman Catholic Church.) The two books mentioned above clearly define the specifics. The Kurds are the ancient people known as the Medes in Bible prophecy and play a significant role in the destruction of Babylon. (Isaiah 13:17; Jeremiah 51:11; and Jeremiah 51:28-29).

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


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

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

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

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

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

• Vision to reach the world for Messiah.

• Logistics and starting new synagogues and churches.

• Anointing of multiplication.

• Mission parameters.

• Resurrection and a new vision

VISION TO REACH THE WORLD FOR CHRIST

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

To pour out the Holy Spirit on them;

To send out Christian workers to them; and,

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

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

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

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

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

LOGISTICS AND STARTING NEW SYNAGOGUES AND CHURCHES

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

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

1. Start cell groups, OR house churches;

2. Visit neighborhoods;

3. Hold public miracle and healing meetings.

START CELL GROUPS

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

VISIT NEIGHBORHOODS AND BARRIOS


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

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

• To win others.

• To study the Scriptures.

• To fast and pray.

• To tithe and give offerings.

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

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

Pray daily for God to:

• Open the hearts of people;

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

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

Look for needs to meet:

• In people;

• In the community; and,

• In the government.

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

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


WARNING:

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


TESTIMONY:

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



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


HOLD PUBLIC MIRACLE AND HEALING MEETINGS

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

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

2. Preach 20 to 40 minutes.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NOTES:

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

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

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

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

SUGGESTIONS:

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

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

ANOINTING OF MULTIPLICATION

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

MISSION PARAMETERS

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

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

1. Preach and teach;

2. Heal; and

3. Cast out demons.

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

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

The cults and false religions teach:

1. Jesus was NOT God in human flesh;

2. You can work your way to Heaven;

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

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

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

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

RESURRECTION AND A NEW VISION


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

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

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

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

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

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

1. Guard Against Pride

2. Monitor the Victory

3.  Plan for the Future

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

• Fame;

• Fortune;

• Lust; and,

• Deception of any kind

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

• Rest;

• Stay under the anointing;

• Plan, stretch out in faith; and,

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

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

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

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

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

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!


Your friend,
Prince Handley

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!

EIGHT TWIN STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESS & CONTINUED VISION – PART C

In the previous two newsletters we discussed the FIRST FOUR TWINS for success and continued vision:


Enthusiastic Desire PLUS Faith;

Decisive Nature PLUS Virtue;

Specialized Knowledge PLUS Spiritual Knowledge; and,

Quest for Excellence
PLUS Temperance.

In this newsletter we will discuss the fifth twin:

Organic Spiritual Endeavor
PLUS Patience.

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

ORGANIC SPIRITUAL ENDEAVOR plus PATIENCE

ORGANIC SPIRITUAL ENDEAVOR

To be really successful we need to share our success with others: our family, our brothers and sisters in Messiah, our community, the world . . . and Heaven.

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]

Now . . . how do we use the precepts we have learned in the previous two teachinngs so as to be involved in ORGANIC SPIRITUAL ENDEAVOR? In other words, 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 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.”

My purpose in this section is to tell you the SPECIFICS of how to accomplish this.

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 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 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 church growth in the Book of Acts. Certain things are evidentiary and these same patterns are manifest in any POWER GROWTH 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 Ruach ha Chodesh (theHoly 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 synagogue and 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.

WARNING #1: It is not enough just to see new churches being raised up. This is where many POWER CHURCHES become deceived into complacency and become spiritually diffused. There are two (2) main causes for this effect:

1. They see many new churches being raised up, but begin to lack clarity or conciseness of mission or vision.

Over time they become spread out and increased in numbers but diffused in power. Sometimes this is because of pride, or due to comparing themselves with other regional churches. Sometimes it is because of lack of sacrifice they were willing to render at their outset.

2. They do NOT bring NEW POWERFUL LIFE back into their parent body.


This can be prevented and offset by sending out short term mission groups for a period of three to six weeks. These groups may go to a nearby region or they may go far away overseas to another country. They may combine evangelism, medical, and help ministries. They may go to non-evangelized territories, or they may go to assist those who have previously been sent out by the parent church; or they may go assist missionaries and Christian workers from other church groups.

This will result in a TRIPLE blessing:
It will inject LIFE back into the parent church when they return from their short term ministry and share their testimonies; it will also inject LIFE into the area where they are sent; and, it will inject LIFE into the ones sent, influencing their future discipleship for the Lord.

WARNING #2: It is of great spiritual detriment for the new churches – or individuals – being raised up to feel, or be instructed, that they are UNDER THE COVERING of the parent church.

1. They may be accountable to the parent church, or other bodies, but their covering is CHRIST AND HIS BLOOD!
To teach otherwise is to cause them to lean on men and not the Lord, and to become disciples of men and not Christ! This is one of Satan’s tricks to quench TRUE evangelistic and prophetic ministry, and to lure them into a false sense of safety or covering.

2. This teaching will usually be prevalent where potential candidates for ministry or the mission field are taught that they are not ready to be “released” from the parent body.
To be “released” is implying that they are being held in “bondage.” Who the Son sets FREE is free indeed . . . absolutely! [John 8:36] They may not be ready to be sent out, but they surely should not be held in bondage, nor have that thought implied.

“Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty!” [2 Corinthians 3:17]

Be part of organic synagogue or church growth . . . or organic ministry growth. Not indirectly . . . but DIRECTLY. It is often said, “If you can’t go in person, then go by your prayers . . . or go with your money.” Surely we can share by any of the three means: going, praying, and giving. But be involved in ALL THREE. Now, if you are elderly, or constrained in some way that you can’t go yourself, the Lord understands. But be involved as much as you can: for your sake, for your synagogue or church and ministry’s sake, and for the sake of those to whom you could or should be ministering.

If you are very busy in your business, ministry, or family life, try to set aside vacation time to go on a ministry trip overseas or to some area in great need. If you are in a geographic area where there are no power churches or ministries, then pray for the Lord’s direction. He may want you to START such a ministry. There are lots of good ministry groups who need help. You can contact them on the internet. Here are a few:

Voice of the Martyrs www.persecution.com

Messianic Bible Prophecy Project www.messianicbible.com

Y.W.A.M. – Youth With A Mission www.ywam.org

Samaritan’s Purse www.samaritanspurse.org

If you can, let your family be involved with you. Young children should not go to some areas because of sanitation, dehydration, and other risks. There is a great need in many countries for water and for wells to be drilled. There is a big need in many areas for other helps such as medical missions. Whatever you do, combine it with preaching the Good News. Some groups do lots of social work but never share the Gospel. Others do lots of evangelism but never help meet needs of the local people. Do both!

Be involved in ministry that is sending out the workers, birthing or planting new churches, preaching and teaching to facilitate the MIRACLE working power of God
. You may be a business person that God has anointed to help reach the world for Christ; but minister personally, as well as through your business. It will keep you creative, and help you to be even more successful while maintaining continued vision. The anointing will keep you vibrant! 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! These things began Jesus both to DO and to TEACH . . . and these things He would have us to DO and to TEACH! [Acts 1:1]


PATIENCE


Most of the people reading this teaching are already in ministry or thinking and praying about it. My advice to you is this: “Go big or stay at home!” In other words, don’t make ministry a hobby or an avocation. Your whole life should center around God’s will for you. Or rather, your whole life should be in the CENTER of God’s will. If not, start praying to that end.

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!

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!

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)

DESCRIPTION:

In this podcast you will find hear the SECRETS of doing GREAT WORKS – unlimited works – for God. Do what I teach you and you will NOT fail. Then, give God the glory: on earth … and later in Heaven! NOTICE – These principles transfer to any endeavor: business, social, family, military, and political.


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.

Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai.

DESCRIPTION:

If you had nothing and had nobody to help you, how would you fulfill the Great Commission? What would you tell the believers who are in prison, being persecuted for their faith, about how to reach the world for Messiah? The answer is in this podcast.


HOW TO SUCCEED WITH NOTHING

MUSIC / INTRO

While looking out my window one afternoon, the Lord asked me two questions:

“If you had nothing and had nobody to help you, how would you fulfill the Great Commission?”


“What would you tell the believers who are in prison, being persecuted for their faith, about how to reach the world for Messiah?”


I had been meditating that afternoon about such things, and the answer to the two questions the Lord asked came succinctly. I wrote down my answer to the Lord immediately, listing the following seven (7) tools with which to carry out the job … and win the world for Messiah Yeshua.

1. God’s Word, the Holy Bible;

2. Faith;

3. Prayer;

4. Jesus’ name;

5. Tongues;

6. Forgiveness; and,

7. Vision.

[] GOD’S WORD, THE HOLY BIBLE

In the Bible I can find 7,000 promises from God that are available to me, and from which I may appropriate my needs, deliverance, healing, favor, direction, and MIRACLES.

I would see in the Bible that God wants me to witness for Messiah: to give evidence of what Messiah has done for me through my words and actions. I would see that God wants me to lead people to Messiah and to train them. [Matthew 18:18-20] This would involve training them to do everything that Jesus had commanded me to do, including baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. I could help them perform Mikvah … or, baptize them in rivers, lakes, churches, oceans, bathtubs, or in tarpaulins in the desert.

This training would involve teaching them to witness for Christ, and to share their testimony with others. It would also include: preaching and teaching; healing the sick, and casting out demons. I would see the great need of establishing a school “behind every bush” to train believers.

In the Bible I would see God’s plan for the ages, and God’s plan for me. I would see God’s plan for the Synagogue and Church: the universal invisible Body of Messiah, and the local gathering of believers, whether two or three … or thousands … meeting together.

Yeshua taught us, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” [Brit Chadashah: Mattiyahu (Matthew) 18:20]

I would see the importance of establishing local synagogues and churches: groups of believers who gather to study God’s Word, to pray, and to worship Him; and from where the local community and government may be blessed; as well as people in other nations.

In the Bible I see God’s goals for Planet Earth and the Second Appearing of Messiah Jesus to Jerusalem to establish His kingdom for 1,000 years. I see that before He returns, the Gospel will be proclaimed and published among every nation, race, tribe, people, and ethnic group of the earth. [Mark 13:10]

[] FAITH

I would use my faith, based upon God’s promises in His Word and knowing what God wants (His will made known in His Word), to create and bring things into being. I would use faith, the same kind of faith that Abraham used, to believe God for what He says in His Word.

“Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, ‘So shall your seed be’.”

“And being not weak in faith, he [Abraham] considered not his own body now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb [who was about 90]:

He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

And being fully persuaded that, what God had promised, He was able also to perform.” [Romans 4:18-21]

So … if you KNOW what God has promised you in His Word, all you have to do is BELIEVE and OBEY … like Abraham!

MUSIC

[] PRAYER

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

I would use prayer not only to talk to God and be in close companionship with Him, but also to make my requests known to Him. I would tell Him what I need and want, and ask for advice as to how to operate to achieve my goal.

James, the first bishop of the church at Jerusalem, and the Lord’s brother, taught us:

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, Who gives to all men liberally, and does not reprimand for asking; and it shall be given to you.” [James 1:5]

For an in-depth study of prayer, go to the Archives of The Apostles Group and select the newsletter “How To Talk To God” dated August 11, 2002.

[] JESUS’ NAME

Jesus said, “If you shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.” [John 14:14]

When you as a believer use the name of Jesus you are identifying with the Master of the universe. It is that name at which demons and Satan tremble, and at which they must become subservient to you. Jesus said, “And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name they shall cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues …” [Mark 16:17]

The name of Jesus lets demons know the authority in and under which you are operating. It is not only your Power of Attorney, but it is also your POWER! It is the name which gives you life.

“But these are written, that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you might have life through his name.” [John 20:31]

Use the name of Jesus to not only bring deliverance to others, but to maintain your own freedom, power, and blessing. And so it is with the name of YAHWEH, the Hebrew name of The LORD: the self existent One.

“The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous run into it, and are safe.”
[Proverb 18:10]

[] TONGUES

Tongues, the language of the Spirit, is the software that makes it possible for you to decree supernaturally. When you speak in faith, based upon God’s Word and will, you decree miraculously. However, there are times when you do NOT know what to decree … OR … how to speak the proper programming language. Tongues, the language of the Holy Spirit, enables the believer in Christ to accomplish this.

For an in-depth study of how to attain this power and blessing, go to the website at www.realmiracles.com and select Advanced Studies from the BLUE navigation bars at the left of any page. In the Advanced Studies section, select the five (5) volume series titled “How To Receive God’s Power” (DCC 9 through 13).

[] FORGIVENESS

Yesterday, a person who is not a Christian asked me this question: “In what area of your life are you most often challenged to use your faith?” I didn’t have to think long. My answer was, “In the area of forgiveness.” This is an area in which we need to make sure we are “clear” at the start of every day. And, actually, at the end of every day!

I remember as a little boy, one night just after I had covered up in bed, my older sister said to me, “Daddy told us never to go to bed mad at each other.” And then we made up with each other. The Holy Bible tells us, “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.” [Ephesians 4:26]

It may not be a wrathful or angry situation that is bothering you. It may be a strained relationship, bad thoughts towards someone, a word of gossip. Or, it may be nothing you’ve done wrong; it may be something someone has said or done to you … or said about you … and that is bothering you, especially if you are undeserving of the words or action.

Jesus taught us, “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” [Matthew 6:14-15] Unforgiveness is something you can’t take to Heaven!

In Mark 11:22-26, Jesus told the disciples, “Have faith in God.” He taught them about speaking in faith, and about receiving in faith. However, he also taught them at the end of this contextual passage that there was something that could hinder them from receiving miracles and answered prayer: it was unforgiveness.

“And when you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone: so that your Father also which is in Heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in Heaven forgive your trespasses.” [Verses 25 and 26]

If God can forgive us of a whole lifetime of sin and disobedience – even sins about which no person on earth knows – can we not forgive someone else for the one, or a few, or even many sins they have committed towards us?! And … if our Heavenly Father had not made a WAY for us to be forgiven by sending His only Son to die in our place on the cross stake … we would be under the constant condemnation of death and Hell. How can we not forgive others?!

Every day I start my day with what is commonly known as the Lord’s Prayer (the disciples prayer He taught them). I clear out any unforgiveness or bitterness so that I can pray successfully and in power … AND … so I can experience success. My prayers for myself, friends, associates, and loved ones … and the prayers for others around the world … depend upon me forgiving others.

“And you be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you.” [Ephesians 4:32]

[] VISION

When was the last time you “dreamed” for God? IMAGINE! What would your life and ministry be like if your present hindrances were removed? And, what would your life be like if you could accomplish all the things you IMAGINE … or ASK for? C. S. Lewis, in his book The Weight of Glory, said, ” … our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak!”

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 in Whom do you trust!

Don’t focus on the giants … focus on God. That’s 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.

Study the following newsletters from the Archives of The Apostles Group:

“Remove the Barriers” (May 04, 2003)

“The Vision and the Miraculous” (May 11, 2003)

“An Anointing for Success” (May 18, 2003)

Change your thinking. Think BIG.

MUSIC

Jeshua taught us, “But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.” [Luke 5:38] Think PAST the limits of your mind. Stretch out your horizon of ENDEAVORS and THOUGHTS. “These things began Jesus both to DO and to TEACH.” Base your thoughts, your goals, and your endeavors upon God’s Holy Word. Use your faith!

Think BIG!

Believe!

Receive!

Act!

Multiply!

To SEE with the mind’s eye … that is, to envision … can encompass the following: imagination, thinking, and decision making. To “cut out” with the mind’s eye is to SEE IT, or to THINK IT upon the tablet of your heart or human spirit.

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!

To decree is the progenitor (or, precursor) of heart belief and mouth confession. It is BOTH the nucleus and “all-encompassing” embryo of initiating great moves of the Holy Spirit on Planet Earth. This is why we need to SPEND TIME MEDITATING GOD’S WORD. We’re NOT talking about New Age type meditation, which can actually be used, and even energized, by demonic forces. We’re talking about MEDITATING God’s Word so we KNOW HOW to work in alignment with our Father in Heaven, Jehovah.

Increase your vision. What can you SEE? What can you IMAGINE? How greatly can you ASK or 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, unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”
[Ephesians 3:20, 21]

At the beginning of this podcast I shared with you two questions the Lord asked me:

“If you had nothing and had nobody to help you, how would you fulfill the Great Commission?”


“What would you tell the believers who are in prison, being persecuted for their faith, about how to reach the world for Messiah?”

I answered those two questions in this teaching. You might ask me: “How do you know what it’s like to be in jail for Yeshua?” I know because I HAVE BEEN in jail for Jesus … for preaching His Gospel. Never teach what you can’t do.

“The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began to DO and TEACH.”
[Acts 1:1]

Nine (9) people were saved as a result of the Holy Spirit using me to preach inside the jail cell, plus the Lord gave me victory in one of the largest court cases of this kind.


“Then said Yeshua unto him, ‘Go, and do thou likewise’.” [Luke 10:37]

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!

THE STARTER – SEEING THE INVISIBLE

THE STARTER – SEEING THE INVISIBLE

Please email this message to a friend.

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



THE STARTER – SEEING THE INVISIBLE

I call G-d “The Starter“. I imagine most people have asked the same question I have since childhood: “Who made G-d?” Even after telling people about Messiah Yeshua for 45 years I still ask Him that question occasionally. When I really get to meditating about the issue, I still ask My Heavenly Father, “How did You get here? You’re G-d, The Creator. Where did You come from … who made You?” And I always come up with the answer that G-d is “The Starter“!

Somebody or something had to be here in the beginning. Somebody or some thing had to make things for there to be a medium in which to exist. G-d, by the very definition of G-d, is omnipresent: He is everywhere. He is NOT limited by time, space, or any other dimension(s). G-d is “The Start” … and “The Starter”! Sometimes when I talk to Him I still call Him by the name of “The Starter”.

The Lord has asked me to teach you a principle that will allow you to SEE many more MIRACLES. This is a principle about which you have never before heard or read. The Ruach Ha Chodesh (the Holy Spirit) told me to teach you the principle of “The Starter – Seeing the Invisible” and to give you examples.

I used to have my wonderful mother make me peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and I would take them down the alley and sit behind a neighbor’s garage and talk to Yeshua. I wanted to know “The Starter” but I didn’t know how, so I just talked to Yeshua whom I learned about by reading the Torah and the Brit Chadashah and also by attending a Sunday school at a local church.

When I was a little boy 11 years of age I prophesied that I would one day serve G-d and, also, that men would travel to the moon. (These were not considered possibilities then … neither the former nor the latter!) I was laughed at for that dual prophecy, but both parts were fulfilled years later.

I read the Holy Bible as a young boy, even though I was not born again. I read the Torah completely and all the New Covenant (Brit Chadashah) gospels, clear into the Book of Acts. I remember the Book of Acts as being so exciting!

I still don’t understand how He can be “The Starter” … but I know Him. And, I know His Son, Yeshua (Jesus), whom I met personally in a room one night when I was alone, by myself. I had carried a small booklet (a little red Bible portion) of scripture verses in my wallet for about 18 months. Every once in a while I would take the little Bible portion out and read it. One Saturday night I was reading the scripture from the Prophet Isaiah in the Tanakh:

“Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord, though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” (Isaiah 1:18)

I was overwhelmed with conviction for my sins, and I said: “Yeshua, if you are there, take my hand.” (I was on my bed and had lifted my hand in the air asking Yeshua to take hold of it.) I didn’t feel anyone take my hand, and so I got on my knees on the bed and reached up in the air again, and said the same thing. I didn’t feel anyone grab my hand and by this time I was weeping much. I thought I was so dirty that God wouldn’t take me or forgive me of my sins. Finally, reaching as high in the air as I could, I said something different: “Yeshua, I KNOW you are there, please save me.”

The next morning I was completely different. I couldn’t wait to go hear the Bible preached and went to a small church I had been to once before. I almost ran down the aisle at the invitation. A brother took me into a side room and showed me a scripture from the Jewish New Covenant (Ephesians 2:8-9):

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”

I was so happy as I drove home that morning. Everything was different. The trees were different, the sky was different, everything was so beautiful … even my food tasted different. And my heart was so happy: my sins were forgiven, and I was on my journey to Heaven.

I followed the Lord’s command and participated in Mikvah (was baptized in water) about one month later. I knew what I was doing and wanted to be obedient to the Lord’s command. I figured that if I couldn’t obey Him in His first command, I probably wouldn’t be obedient in any others.

I started believing God for the salvation of my family and relatives and began actively talking to them about the Lord. Even though most of them were religious, I realized they were not truly born again by the Spirit as none of them ever talked about the Lord in a personal way, and none of them had assurance that if they died they would go to Heaven.

I prayed to “The Starter” and claimed a verse I found in the Brit Chadashah in Acts 16:31, which says: “Believe on the Lord Yeshua ha Meschiach, and you will be saved: you and your household.”

My mother, who had been in religious most of her life was first to be saved about one month after and then she was baptized. My brother, who had been my Sunday school teacher and who had been a trustee and a deacon for 14 years was next to be saved. (I never heard my brother curse at all in his whole life, I never knew him to mistreat a woman, and I never knew him to drink. He was a good brother and extremely moral and I have always been very proud of him; he was an excellent example to me.)

My brother lived in the wealthiest part of town; we had both graduated from the same college; he finished 10 years before. After he was saved, he was baptized, and quit three (3) of the secret orders he belonged to: The Masons, The Scottish Rite, and the Shrine. He also resigned from the private country club to which he belonged. He became a wonderful example of what G-d can do through a person; and turned many people to the Lord.

My sister, my nieces and nephew, aunts and uncles, cousins to the second cousins, and all seven (7) of my children, plus all seven (7) grandchildren know Yeshua, the Son of “The Starter“. I was the first one to be a born again believer in my family, even though almost all of my relatives were religious. You can believe G-d’s promises for the salvation of YOUR family. Moses told Pharaoh, “There shall not a hoof be left behind.” (Torah: Exodus 10:26) That’s what you need to tell the devil regarding the salvation of your loved ones! What a wonderful thing to know that all of your family will be in Heaven together!

Two medical doctors (in two different states of the USA) gave me laboratory results that I would (the same as) never have children. However, “The Starter” gave me seven children, all of whom know Him. I was the youngest and LAST son in my Father’s lineage and the only one to bear sons. So … G-d STARTED a NEW born again seed line in the lineage of my forefathers. My sons and daughters are all Spirit-filled soul winners. My daughters are very beautiful. They shine for the Lord. When thinking of them I often think of the verse in Job 42:15: “In all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job.”

Before you can SEE G-d’s MIRACLES in a certain area, or domain of manifestation, you need to BELIEVE that He has that ability in His nature to perform in that specificity. For example, we read in Psalm 43:1 (probably written by Kind David), “O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.” At one time King Saul was hunting David to kill him (later, also, he tried with 3,000 men to catch and kill him). [1 Samuel Chapters 23 and 24]. “But there came a messenger unto Saul, saying, ‘Hurry and come, for the Philistines have invaded the land’. Wherefore Saul returned from pursuing after David.” [Verses 27 and 28]

One aspect of deliverance is to realize that God can START situations at any time! This principle will help you SEE a lot more MIRACLES in your life and ministry. After I was told by two medical doctors that I couldn’t have children, G-d STARTED LIFE and gave me seven (7) children.

You need to SEE the invisible and BELIEVE G-d to START your MIRACLES. God is “The Starter”.

In John 11:39-45 we read about Yeshua raising Lazarus from the dead after he had been dead four days. Yeshua told them to take away the large stone on the mouth of the burial tomb, and said to Martha, “Didn’t I say to you, that, if you would BELIEVE, you would SEE the glory of G-d.” Then He prayed to the Father and said, “I know that You hear me always: but because of the people which stand by, I said it, that they may BELIEVE that you have sent me.” “Lazarus come forth.” “Loose him and let him go.”

There is a “cycle” of production AND propagation here. Meditate on this!

Your job: BELIEVE and you will SEE.

Result in people you’re serving: They will SEE and BELIEVE.

As a “believer” your job is to BELIEVE and then YOU will SEE … with the resultant effect that THOSE you serve will SEE MIRACLES and then BELIEVE.

You have to KNOW that G-d is “The Starter” and you have to SEE THE INVISIBLE IN FAITH. Then you BELIEVE and SEE the VISIBLE. Those around you will complete the cycle when they SEE the MIRACLES and they will BELIEVE G-d.

And … it doesn’t matter HOW G-d works … just so He works. For example, there was a young man in a perilous situation in Dothan who SAW dreams earlier given to him by “The Starter“; however the young mans’ deliverance and worldwide geo-political authority didn’t come to pass for 13 years. His name was Joseph. (Torah: Genesis Chapter 37)

There was another young man in Dothan, centuries later, who was in a perilous situation, but who received immediate deliverance by a host of holy angels. (Tanakh: 4 Kings 6:7)

“Elisha prayed and said, ‘Lord, I pray you, open his (the young man’s) eyes, that he may SEE. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he SAW: and behold the mountain was full of horses, and chariots of fire around Elisha.”

Remember … G-d can START situations at any time. Know this and believe it. See the invisible.

It doesn’t matter HOW G-d works … just so He works. He is “The Starter“!

What would you have “The Starter” do for you today?
You don’t have to understand everything about Him. Stop trying to analyze Him … maybe you should stop trying to analyze the situation you’re in … and just BELIEVE!

If the finite could comprehend the infinite, then the infinite would be finite.

“Don’t be afraid; only believe.”
(Brit Chadashah: Mark 5:36)

RIGHT  THOUGHTS  PLUS  DILIGENCE WILL CAUSE YOU TO PROFIT

You will find a secret to make sure you profit in the future and protection to keep you from failure! You will experience MIRACLES … real miracles!

“The thoughts of the diligent surely lead to profit; and everyone who is hasty surely rushes to poverty.” [Proverbs 21:5]

Notice that in this proverb it is easy to first think of it as saying “Whoever is diligent will profit.” Even though diligence is usually rewarded and a persevering, conscientious spirit will provide results, there is a double caveat:

No. 1 – Do not be hasty; and,
No. 2 – Make sure you cultivate right thinking.

The Hebrew word for “hasty” used in the proverb is the word “utz” and means “to press, to hurry, to withdraw.” How many times have you lost money because you did something too quickly, or made a rash decision?

The Hebrew word for “thoughts” in this passage is the word “machashabah” and means “intention, plan, device, imagination, purpose.” Actually, the root form of the word means “contrivance or machine.” So you can look at it this way: your thoughts are like a machine!

The quality and execution of diligence is the underpinning for success; however, it is the THOUGHTS of the diligent that surely lead to profit.

Proverbs 12:24 instructs us: “The hands of the diligent ones shall rule, but laziness ends in slave labor.” The Hebrew word for “hand” in this passage is “yad” and it is a primitive word meaning “the open hand” indicating “power, means, direction” (as opposed to the closed hand). This represents the person who by his or her own labor is independent. The idle, or lazy, person will be subject to the industrious.

Solomon advanced Jeroboam because he saw that he was an industrious young man, and minded his business. [1 Kings 11:28]  People that strive in study and service will be promoted from above.  This is an eternal principle, also. Jesus taught us, in a context dealing with the Millennial Kingdom, “He that has been faithful in a few things shall be made ruler over many things.” The scripture also teaches us that, “The elders, that labor in the word and doctrine, are worthy of double honor.” [1 Timothy 5:17] The Greek word for “honor” here used is “time [tee-may]” and means “money paid, or valuables.” This passage is saying that “Those that labor in God’s Holy word, and teach it, are worthy of double money.”

The THOUGHTS of the diligent surely lead to profit. One who has the foundation of diligence and who learns to cultivate his or her thoughts will surely profit. The Bible says, “Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honorable, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there is any virtue, and if there is any praise, think about these things. ” [Philippians 4:8]

Don’t look back on failures. Meditate on your successes . . . and on God’s Word. There is something to the old expression: “What you see is what you get.” The Proverbs tell us: “For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” [Proverb 23:7]

Remember . . . do NOT act in a hurry . . . do NOT make hasty, rash decisions. Work hard and mix your efforts with sound thoughts, planning, and, when necessary, good counsel. Then you WILL profit and be successful.

I trust this teaching has helped you,

Your friend,
Prince Handley
