Preparation for Ministry

The Word of God challenges us to put on the whole armour of God. Ephesians 6:10,11.

We are to have feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.

What does this mean?

Lets look at each part of it. What do these words mean?

The word gospel means ‘good news’. What does the word ‘peace’ mean? The Word used in Greek is ‘eirene’ and comes from a root word meaning ‘to join or make one’.

The Millenium – Pre-millenial view

THE MILLENIUM: We believe in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to set up His millennial reign on
this earth – Zech 14:5; Dan 7:22; Rev 5:9-10;
Psa 96:10-13; Psa 11; Rev 20:1-10.

Introduction.

The Righteous Shall Get Land – Psalm 37, Mark 10

Psalm 37 repeats the promise that the righteous shall get land. This would have both a natural and a spiritual application.Naturally, land is a great investment. It is a scarce resource which the government cannot print, only release for use. As world population grows, it needs to be inhabited more densely and grows in value.

In the Old Covenant, the land of Israel was very important. It was a big deal for the people of Israel to inherit and conquer the Promised Land.

Confessions about Prosperity

I return to the LORD and obey His voice and the LORD my God will make me abundantly prosperous in all the work of my hand, in EVERYTHING. For the LORD takes delight in prospering me. Deut 30.9

My God shall supply all my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Php 4.19

The Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not want. Ps 23.1

I am God’s servant – so, the Lord takes pleasure in my prosperity. Ps 35.27

God wants me to prosper and be in health, even as my soul prospers. 3John 1.2

The Lord my God teaches me to profit, and leads me by the way I should go. Is 48.17

What I Seek

One thing I have desired of the LORD, that will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in His temple. Ps 27.4

I seek the Lord with rejoicing! 1Chr 16.10

I seek the face of the LORD always. 1Chr 16.11

I seek the Lord and I lack no good thing. Ps 34.10

I seek the LORD my God with all my heart and all my soul, and will find Him. Deut 4.29

I seek the Lord with yearning and longing. Ps 63.1

I seek the name of the Lord.

The Atonement

WE BELIEVE that God’s answer to man’s sinful state is in the death of his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ upon the cross, whose sufferings and shed blood have made full atonement for the sins of the whole world, both original and actual, and that there is no other ground for salvation – 2 Cor 5:18-21; Gal 1:4, Eph 1:7; Col 1:14; Heb 9:25,26; 1 Peter 1:19-20.

Introduction.

It is in this subject, the atonement, that we find release from the curse. In our last study we saw the Fall of Man and how it brought in a curse upon the human race.

HARVEST

John 4: 35: ‘Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for
harvest!”

LIFTING UP THE NAME OF JESUS

John 12: 32 “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.”


OUR MANDATE FROM JESUS CHRIST

1.

The Kingdom of God

The central message of Jesus Christ was the message of “the Kingdom of God” or “the Kingdom of Heaven”. This message, when understood, is the most relevant message for the needs of humanity. It is a highly attractive message, and will produce the greatest results of any message one could give. This message must once again become the central theme of preachers and teachers in these last days.

When the message of the Kingdom of God is given correctly, the results will be dramatic, just as they were for our Lord and for the apostles of our Lord.

Get Blessed!

“… knowing that you were called for this purpose, that you may inherit a blessing. ” (1 Peter 3:9)

It is really important to God that YOU inherit a blessing! Its not something to be ashamed of or to apologize for. On the contrary, it is central to God’s purpose for your life! The Scriptures declare it, and so when you as one of God’s people are blessed, then God Himself is glorified.

God wants you to be blessed, even in ways you have never known before. We can get more of an idea of God’s purpose when we consider one of the main reasons Jesus died on the cross and suffered for us.

Philippians 4:19

And my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19).

Personal Comments:

I need to believe this promise not only for personal and family needs, but especially for the needs of the ministry I am called to fulfil.

For the television ministry especially, we need so many leaders, managers, staff, camera men, editors, computers, cameras, software licenses, distribution contracts and so on.
