Yes, without any doubt, life can be tough, but God has given us gifts and other Christians to help us not only survive, but experience wining. God has our name in His eternal plan and Jesus even gave His life so we could win. These words are not about hoping we win it’s about knowing we win. (Taken from my book: “The Last of Last Days will be Greatest Time in Church History”.
Are you really, how important is a Saints ministry? Bible calls those who believe and follow Jesus, are Saints. Today, mostly called a congregation. Have we missed something? We are seeing a difference in our church world: reduction of truths and visions, not to mention a reduction of numbers, testimonies, and spiritual gifts in many churches today. Seems there’s a turning around of Body of Christ Jesus started, called Christ today. Instead of Saints Ministry as important focus today, left to five-fold ministry to handle. Original Saints Ministry included both trainers and saint’s working together. We seem to have small portions of doers, rest spectators. How do we expect to win a spiritual war without a spiritual army prepared to fight evils?
Sometimes, seems the greater focus is just getting people in pews instead of training to win souls for Jesus. I’ve sometimes said, modern church seems more like a school where students never graduate. Bible says 120 of Jesus’ disciples went into an upper room and were filled with Holy Spirit and immediately hit the streets winning 3,000 to Christ same day. First church building was built about 200 years later. Yes, wars are won on the battle field. Time for Jesus’ army to focus on training how to win souls to Christ by getting them saved. Ministry is vehicle Jesus created to restore people to his original purpose. Reason for training and spiritual gifts is to have His army capable of winning souls. Sounds more like a modern day army where the leaders train the army so the army can win the battle.
Jesus declared that those who were leading in his day were not following God’s plan, but their own tradition handed down by fathers. Thus, greatest calling was not to be a trainer, an important position to Jesus. The greatest calling is the calling of all Saints, leaders and congregations described in 2 Corinthians 5:17-20. Today, Lord is looking for all who will stand with HIS plan for Christian leaders and Christian spectators. Modern church today needs to face up to HIS that include all Saints as one army that fights for Jesus’ truths and purpose. It’s important every Christian, leader or Saint, needs to know they are part of a fighting spiritual body, not spectators.
To bad that all of you reading this blog could not come hear my Pastor preach what this blog is talking about. All Christians, wherever they are, are HIS hope for all non-Christians today, not about yesterday, nor about future, but about NOW! Every Christian where ever, is vitally important to HIS original plan for earth as HIS light of world. So WE, yes HIS body, His Ministry, will reach out to world, yes winning back, through many types of ministries.
APRIL 23, 1974 Lord started speaking to me about a upcoming dark His Church would go through. He said I would be involved showing HIS people how they could come together as one body during times of darkness. So, I am now sharing once a day what He gave me to every true believer possible. If you know some feel free to share to as many as possible be. I also prayed for Lord to send me to where the battles were. Give me a spiritual weapon and put me on the front line. If I fall I’ll do the best I can, but don’t build up the fact war is important if you aren’t looking for help. I fasted 30 days twice, two weeks several times, and one to two days many times. I was serious and knew God heard me because He gave me these following Words I’m sharing between 1973 and 2015 concerning our final battles.
