EPISODE 51 – A Message of Hope for New Equippers [PODCAST]

By Apostle Ricardo Butler

In today’s podcast, I give an encouraging word for emerging or newly appointed/ordain leaders in the five fold ministry.

Sometimes it can be tough to put all that training and equipping together or from where to start. God sends you some people to disciple up and you have all this training and equipping and information and truth on what to do but sometime how to do it can get confusing because of all the knowledge you have gained.

Let me encourage you how to start, where to start, and to tell you don’t be discouraged when you do make mistakes or fail with a person you are equipping goes astray and rebels.

STUDY, UNDERSTAND, & APPLY …

“And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.” (Genesis 1:20-23, KJV).

“God spoke: “Swarm, Ocean, with fish and all sea life!
Birds, fly through the sky over Earth!”
God created the huge whales,
all the swarm of life in the waters,
And every kind and species of flying birds.
God saw that it was good.
God blessed them: “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Ocean!
Birds, reproduce on Earth!”
It was evening, it was morning—
Day Five.” (The Message).

5 Levels of Leadership By John C. Maxwell Vs. EntreLeadership By Dave Ramsey [BOOK SHOWDOWN]

5 Levels of Leadership By John C. Maxwell Vs. EntreLeadership By Dave Ramsey [BOOK SHOWDOWN]

By Apostle Ricardo Butler

Being that I am a student and teacher (trainer) of leadership, I am constantly asked,

“What are you favorite books on leadership?”

I usually say,

“Anything from John Maxwell!”

But there are many other great leadership books out there. And one that I find myself coming back to over and over again is Dave Ramsey’s EntreLeadership: 20 Years of Practical Business Wisdom from the Trenches.

It’s an awesome book, not only about leadership, but entrepreneurship, which is something that I am also passionate about.

On the other hand, an equally awesome book that also came out the same year was John Maxwell’s 5 Levels of Leadership: Proven Steps to Maximize Your Potential.

EPISODE 050 – Leadership Light that Ignites others to form Flames [PODCAST]

EPISODE 050 – Leadership Light that Ignites others to form Flames [PODCAST]

By Apostle Ricardo Butler

In today’s podcast we discuss how to unite the people of God under leaders who are the light of Christ and are in the light of Christ so that we might generate a great flame and fire of God that the whole world who is walking in darkness will want to come and see and walk in that light of the Father.

STUDY, UNDERSTAND, & APPLY …

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.” (Genesis 1:14-19, KJV).

“God spoke: “Lights! Come out!
Shine in Heaven’s sky!
Separate Day from Night.
Mark seasons and days and years,
Lights in Heaven’s sky to give light to Earth.”
And there it was.
God made two big lights, the larger
to take charge of Day,
The smaller to be in charge of Night;
and he made the stars.
God placed them in the heavenly sky
to light up Earth
And oversee Day and Night,
to separate light and dark.
God saw that it was good.
It was evening, it was morning—
Day Four.” (The Message).

Developing Prophetic People By Apostle Tim Early

Developing Prophetic People By Apostle Tim Early

If you would like to submit a guest post/teaching, click here @ Guest Post.

Dr. Tim and Theresa Early – Apostle and Prophet, Koinonia International Network www.apostlesandprophets.net

“… [Moses speaking] … would God that all the Lord’s people were prophets, and that the Lord would put His Spirit upon them.” (Numbers 11:29).

“You are the children of the prophets [the offspring and lineage of the prophetic dimension] …” (Acts 3:25).

There are two very important principles I wish to begin with.

{1}, prophets are not only developed or made, but prophets are born, YES … born, as recorded in Jeremiah 1:5 below …

“Before I formed the in the belly [John 7:38] I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet unto the nations.”

“Moreover, whom He did predestinates, them He also calls: and whom He calls, them also He justifies: and whom He justifies them He also glorifies.” (Romans 8:30).

{2}, prophets and prophetic people need defined environments divinely ordained by God for personal and corporate development. This includes a series and sequence of events in your life, including seasons and cycles of preparation, ordained processes of the Lord … Galatians 4:1-7; Genesis 14:14; Exodus 24:13; Galatians 2:9; Ecclesiastes 3:1

EPISODE 049 – The TRUE Definition of Fruitful Leadership [PODCAST]

EPISODE 049 – The TRUE Definition of Fruitful Leadership [PODCAST]

By Apostle Ricardo Butler

In today’s podcast, I talk about how to best measure the fruit of a leader is the type of leaders their leaders produce. You can only produce after your KIND and in your likeness!

John Maxwell says,

“We teach what we know, but we reproduce who we are!”

STUDY, UNDERSTAND, & APPLY …

“And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day. “ (Genesis 1:11-13, KJV).

“God spoke: “Earth, green up! Grow all varieties
of seed-bearing plants,
Every sort of fruit-bearing tree.”
And there it was.
Earth produced green seed-bearing plants,
all varieties,
And fruit-bearing trees of all sorts.
God saw that it was good.
It was evening, it was morning—
Day Three.”
(The Message).

Regional Unity among Leaders

Regional Unity among Leaders

Scouting Out Canaan

“God [the Father] spoke to Moses [symbolic for Jesus]: “SEND men [symbolic for apostles] to scout out the country of Canaan [symbolic for the whole world-satan’s kingdom so that it would become God’s Kingdom] that I am giving to the People of Israel [symbolic for the Church of God]. Send one man from each ancestral tribe [‘tribe of their father’—KJV], each one A TRIED-AND-TRUE LEADER in the tribe [symbolic for measure of rule/sphere of influence—REGION].”

“So Moses SENT [like Christ sent the apostles] them off from the Wilderness of Paran at the command of God. All of them were LEADERS in Israel, one from each tribe. These were their names:
