DEDICATED TO THE GENERATIONAL BLESSING THROUGHOUT THE EARTH

 

By Apostle Tim Early

 

Oftentimes when people site the importance of divine or covenant relationships between spiritual/ministry fathers and sons, their focus is chiefly on how gifted one another is between each other, when in truth many lack understanding of the Spiritual Chemistry of the Appointed relationship. When the relationship between father and son {no gender here} is given priority of purpose, the son does not merely minister out of their great gifting or illustrious anointing but now minister out of their SONSHIP. When the Father discovers the son and the son acknowledges the father, there is no place for competition but rather proper recognition of the father and son in the appointed or divine relationship.

 

All that is given to take place or shape is purposed by God to activate destiny in the son becoming begotten into a more lively hope in fulfillment of divine expectation as appointed of the Lord through this divine relationship. The son remains a son even in the absence of the father, and the father maintains to carry the son further on into the divine progressions of the Lord that will only edify the relationship, bring glory to the name of the Lord, and to help the son to receive inheritance as no one can beget themselves.

The Jerusalem Church Receives Paul’s Message

 

By Apostle Ricardo ‘Reason’ Butler

 

“Fourteen years after that first visit, Barnabas and I went up to Jerusalem and took Titus with us. I went to clarify with them what had been revealed to me. At that time I placed before them exactly what I was preaching to the non-Jews. I did this in private with the leaders, those held in esteem by the church, so that our concern would not become a controversial public issue, marred by ethnic tensions, exposing my years of work to denigration and endangering my present ministry. Significantly, Titus, non-Jewish though he was, was not required to be circumcised. While we were in conference we were infiltrated by spies pretending to be Christians, who slipped in to find out just how free true Christians are. Their ulterior motive was to reduce us to their brand of servitude. We didn’t give them the time of day. We were determined to preserve the truth of the Message for you.

 

As for those who were considered important in the church, their reputation doesn’t concern me. God isn’t impressed with mere appearances, and neither am I. And of course these leaders were able to add nothing to the message I had been preaching. It was soon evident that God had entrusted me with the same message to the non-Jews as Peter had been preaching to the Jews. Recognizing that my calling had been given by God, James, Peter, and John—the pillars of the church—shook hands with me and Barnabas, assigning us to a ministry to the non-Jews, while they continued to be responsible for reaching out to the Jews. The only additional thing they asked was that we remember the poor, and I was already eager to do that.” (Galatians 2:1-10, The Message).

 

For today’s Apostolic Lessons & Lessons for Apostles from the Book of Galatiansthere are a few key things I want apostles, apostolic ministers, apostolic marketplace leaders, and apostolic people emerging in apostolic leadership to see and learn about this passage.
Paul speaks about “making full [and fool] proof” our ministries and to fulfill it (see 2nd Timothy 4:5 & Colossians 4:17). This is specifically important to any claiming to be apostles.

 

The first thing I want you to notice is …

The definition of leverage is to, “use (something) to maximum advantage; strategic advantage; power to act effectively.”

 

There are three things to consider when leveraging or the strategic advantage concerning the effectiveness (doing the right things) and efficiency (doing things right) of the apostolic ministry for Kingdom advancement.

 

Those three leverages are:

 

  1. God
  2. The People of God
  3. The Spirit of God

 

Christ has called the apostle to advance the Kingdom of God on earth.

 

The first strategic advantage for the apostle of Christ is …

“Many plans are in a man’s mind, but it is the Lord’s purpose for him that will stand (be carried out).” (Proverbs 19:21, The Amplified Version).

“Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.” (Proverbs 16:3, The Amplified Version).

 

What’s the difference between these two verses?

 

The first verse speaks about me making my own plans or even fulfilling God’s plans my way but God Himself overriding my plans because His own thus me ending up frustrated in life.

 

The second first speaks about me submitting my own plans to God and allowing Him to make adjustments according to His own plans all the while He is transforming and conforming me in His image, thus I begin to change my own plans to submit to His plan. It becomes a win/win because we both want the same thing.

Dominion BEGINS WITH his Communion! Genesis 1:26, 28

 

The Great Commission is Power-fueled by the I.M.A.G.E. {IMPARTATIONAL MINISTRY ACTIVATING GOD IN YOU ENDLESSLY} of God in us. In the words of our dear and precious friend “Apostle Cornell Harris” of Beech Island , South Carolina says, “H.I.P. H.O.P.” His Image Produces the Highest Operational Potential {in you and me}. WOW!

 

All that we say or do stems from, or returns us right back to DOMINION, the first Great Commission versus the Great Commotion of Genesis 11.

 

Our salvation is the Joy of HIS Salvation, and we are saved not merely to die and go to heaven, but to rule the earth through our measure of rule, our allotted portion, and sphere of grace. We are here to change our world through HIS DOMINION, His liberating influence, and the saturation of HIS KINGDOM GLORY throughout the earth.
