The Ministry that’s on Earth Right Now

I cannot imagine a Supernatural Church without Supernatural Saints. It takes more than a supernatural leader; it requires a supernatural team. A football team may have a great coach but can’t win the championship without a great team! To win, the great coach must lead, teach, train and equip team to be winners. Until then, the team will remain spectators on the side line instead of active players on the field. This is happening around the world today, you should see my pastor working at it for the congregation.

Church is about learning how to do something and then doing it. There must be a purpose and goal, create an action that produces results, naturally and spiritually. Church is not just fellowship that is a result. Fellowship is like sweating. People don’t plan to sweat with each other; they plan something they can do together that produces sweat. When Church assembles it’s not to be a spectator event, but an enhancing and growing event, something should result from all the singing and preaching besides goose pumps. There should be some kind of motivation created. The world is not buying what is being offered, so their must be something wrong with what’s being sold to them. Could it be because we want to be accepted by man more than by God? John 12:43 for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.

Ministry is not a performance before people – It’s a tool God can use to bring people to believe in Him. That’s why Jesus Own ministry was called, “Ministry of Reconciliation” [reconciling man back to God and from this world’s bondage by Satan’s deceptions. Jesus did not come to teach humans how to live better in Satan’s kingdom, but to teach a New Kingdom at hand, not of this world, but a separate and invisible kingdom.

Jesus was a carpenter, but when He was 30 (age of Jewish ministry) He did not focus on expanding His carpentry business, but on introducing another lifestyle of abundance, health and victory through a new kingdom approach.

When Jesus called the fisherman to join His kingdom, they left their nets; they didn’t focus on how to build a bigger fishing business. When Jesus called Matthew (tax collector), it was not to improve or promote Matthew in his business, but to introduce him to new kingdom approach to life. Jesus introduced a new kingdom, a spiritual kingdom that had a difference motive, a difference approach, a different result of life on earth, with “one” purpose – To reconcile mankind back to God and His Kingdom.

New Testament, Jesus came to operate in both His Love Mode and His War Mode aggressively. He also established His church body, which was definitely a love mode. This means that with Jesus as head and believers as body, there is no such mode as a passive church mode. Apostle summed it best in God’s Word: (2 Timothy 4:7).

Today, Christians have a powerful message for a dying world. So, where is His army of Saints who are to win souls for His Kingdom? Yes, today it seems many Christians teach and think that Jesus was passive and would not stand and fight back. But, the Word of God over powers this weak thinking: (Ephesians 6:12-15). It is clear God’s people will be in position, plus equipped for duty, love or war. God’s Word clearly says we are an important part of a much larger spiritual body called His Church (Believers), Jesus as Head. We are a spiritual army with spiritual mission to accomplish. Yes, our battles and weapons are not physical: “A time to love and time of war” (Ecclesiast 3:8). THINK BIG KNOWING GOD’S TEAM ALWAYS WINS.
