LET US GO TO THE LORD IN PRAYER

Father, I come before you in the name of your son, Jesus Christ. Lord, you know all things. They are all before you like an open book. Who can hide their heart from your presence and your eye? The deeds of the most clever men are exposed before you. Your omniscience knows know bounds - and if it were not for grace, I would be of all men most terrified. But there is grace, abounding and glorious, poured out upon the weakest of men, and abounding to your glory.
Father, I praise you and I worship you; I thank you for all that you are and all that have done. There is no one like you in Heavens and on the Earth or under the earth. You are the King and there is no other. You are Savior and you share your glory with no one. Father, this day you know me and my great need of grace. Why am I here except that you called the weakest among men, the most ignoble among brothers, and that by your grace, often times, the lesser teaches the greater? That is always my case and I praise you. I worship you. Father, help us today, to the wind with eloquence, to hell with brilliant intellect, Father. Let the truth go forward. Let me be changed that the state of your church be more glorious. I pray for grace upon grace and mercy upon mercy for myself and for those who hear. Help us, Oh God, and we will be helped; and we will boast in that help in Jesus' Name. AMEN!!!

AT THE CROSS

                                                         
                             
                                                                  Father forgive them
Luke 23:33-34>And when they came to the place which is called The Skull,there they crucified him,and the criminals,one on the right and one on the left. And Jesus said,"Father,Forgive them;for they know not what they do."And they cast lots to divide his garments.
   father forgive them was a prayer of: 1.Prayer of relationship.
                                                              2.Prayer of forgiveness.
                                                              3.Prayer of identity.
                                                              4.Prayer of awareness.
                                                              5.Prayer of completeness.

                                                                  In your Hands 
Luke 23:44,    Father into your hands shows that: 1.Jesus died praying to God.
                                                            2.Jesus died trusting God.
                                                            3.Jesus died submitting to God.

                                                                 I am thirsty 
John 19:28-29>After this Jesus,knowing that all was now finished,said(to fulfil the scripture),"I thirst." A bowl full of vinegar stood there;so they put a sponge full of the vinegar on hyssop and held it to his mouth.
   I am thirsty points out: 1.The humanity of Christ.
                                        2.The Sovereignty of Christ.
                                        3.The fulfilled prophecies of Christ.

                                                           Near the cross
What was it like to stand near the cross of Jesus? We examine four people who stood near the cross and try to understand what it would have meant for them.
John 19:25>Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother,his mother's sister,Mary the mother of Mary the wife of Cleopas,and Mary Magdalene.
Matthew 11:9>Then what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you,and more than a prophet.

                                                        Your face in the crowd
Matthew 27:32,>As they were going out,they met a man from Cyrene,named Simon,and they forced him to carry the cross.
Matthew 27:26,47>Then he released Barabbas to them.But he had Jesus flogged,and handed him over to be crucified.

                                                       The three crosses
This message takes at the three crosses at Calvary;  a.The cross of Reflection.
                                                                                    b.The cross of Reception.
                                                                                    c.The cross of Redemption.
Luke 23:39,43>One of the criminals who hung there hurled  insults at him: " Aren't you the Christ?save yourself and us!"...............) Jesus answered him, "I tell you the truth,today you will be with me in paradise"
Psalms 46:1>God is our refuge and strength,an ever-present help in trouble.

                                                   Famous last words
The last Words of a dying man can tell us a great deal about his life;the last Words of Jesus on the cross are a message to us of what his life was about and what about our lives should be.
Luke 23:34,46>Jesus said,"Father, forgive them,for they do not know what they are doing."And they divided up his clothes by casting lots............)Jesus called out with a loud voice,"Father,into your hands I commit my spirit."When he had said this,he breathed his last.
John 19:30>When he had received the drink,Jesus said,"It is finished." With that,he bowed down his head and gave up his spirit.

                                              The seven last words of Jesus.
Discover Jesus' true understanding of God and mankind through his last words on the cross.
John 19:26,30>When Jesus saw his mother there,and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby,he said to his mother,"Dear woman,here is your son."And to the disciple,"Here is your mother."From that time on,this disciple took her into his home..........)When he had received the drink,Jesus said,"It is finished."with that,he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
Luke 23:24,46>So Pilate decided to grant their demand............)Jesus called out with a loud voice,"Father,into your hands I commit my spirit."When he had said this,he breathed his last.
Matthew 27:46>About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice,"Eloi,Eloi,lama sabachthani?-which means, My God,my God,why have you forsaken me?"
Psalms 2:2,8>The kings of the earth take their stand stand and the rulers gather together against the LORD and against his anointed one...........)Ask of me,and I will make the nations your inheritance,the ends of the earth your possession.

                                                        The Word
Isaac carried the wood,Jesus carried the wood and in both cases,Father and son walked together.Luke 9:23>Then he said to them all:"If anyone would come after me,he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follower me." Genesis 22:6>Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and placed it on his son Isaac,and he himself carried the fire and the knife.As the two of them went on together,
God bless you as you meditate on His word.

HE IS RISEN I BELIEVE

                           

1.Jesus himself testified to his coming resurrection from dead.

Jesus spoke openly about what would happen to him:crucifixion and then resurrection from the dead."The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes and be killed,and after three days rise again," (Mark 8:31,Matthew 17:22; Luke 9:22).

Jesus continued to tell his disciples that if his enemies destroy the temple(Of His Body),he would build it again in three days.(John 2:19;Mark 14:58;cf.Matthew 26:61).He also spoke illusively of the "sign of Jonah" -three days in the heart of the earth(Matthew 12:39;16:4).And he hinted at it again in Matthew 21:42-"The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner. "On top of his own witness to the coming resurrection,his accusers said that this was part of Jesus' claim:"Sir, we remember how that impostor said,while he was still alive,After three days I will rise" (Matthew 27:63).

Our first evidence of the resurrection,therefore,is that Jesus himself spoke of it.The breadth and nature of the sayings make it unlikely that a deluded church made these up.And the character of Jesus himself,revealed in these witnesses,has not been judged by most people to be lunatic or deceiver.

2.The tomb was empty on Easter.

"When they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus"(Luke 24:3).And the enemies of Jesus confirmed it by claiming the disciples had stolen the body(Matthew 28:13).The body of Jesus could not be found. There are four possible ways to account for this.

            a.His foes stole the body.If they did(and they never claimed to have done so),they surely           would have produced the body to stop the successful spread of the christian faith in the very city where the crucifixion occurred. But they could not produce it.

            b.His friends stole the body.This was an early rumor(Matthew 28:11-15).Is it probable?
               Could they have overcome the guards at the tomb? More important,would they begun to preach with such authority that Jesus was raised,knowing that he was not?
Would they have risked their lives and accepted beatings for something they knew was a fraud?

            c.Jesus was not dead,but only unconscious when they laid him in the tomb.He awoke,removed the stone,overcame the soldiers,and vanished from history after a few meetings with his disciples in which he convinced them he was risen from the dead.Even the foes of Jesus did not try this line.He was obviously dead.The Romans saw to that. The stone could not be moved by one man from within who had just been stabbed in the side by a spear and spent six hours nailed to a cross.

            d.God raised Jesus from the dead.  This is what he said would happen.It is what the disciples said did happen.But as long as there is a remote possibility of explaining the resurrection naturalistically,modern people say we should not jump to a supernatural explanation. Is this reasonable?I don't think so.Of course,we don't want to be gullible.
But neither do we want to reject the truth just because it's is strange. We need to be aware that our commitments at this point are much affected by our preferences - either for the state of of affairs that would arise from the falsehood of the resurrection.If the message of Jesus has opened you to the reality of God and the need of forgiveness,for example,then anti-supernatural dogma might lose its power over your mind.Could it be that this openness is not prejudice for the resurrection,but freedom from prejudice against it?

3.The disciples were almost immediately transformed from men who were hopeless and fearless after the crucifixion(Luke 24:21,John 20:19)into men who were confident and bold witnesses of the resurrection(Acts 2:24,3:15,4:2).

Their explanation of this change was that they had seen the risen Christ and had been authorized to be his witnesses(Acts 2:32).The most popular competing explanation is that their confidence was owing to hallucinations. There are numerous problems with such a notion. The disciples were not gullible,but level -headed skeptics both before and after the resurrection.(Mark 9:32,Luke 24:11,John 20:8-9,25).Moreover,is the deep and noble teaching of those who witnessed the risen Christ the stuff of which hallucinations made?What about Paul's great later to the Romans? I personally find it hard to think of this giant intellect and deeply transparent soul as deluded or deceptive,and he claimed to have seen the risen Christ.

4.Paul claimed that,not only had he seen the risen Christ,but that 500 others had seen him also,and many were still alive when he made this public claim.

"Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time,most of whom are still alive,though some have fallen asleep" (1 Corinthians 15:6 ).What makes this so relevant is that this was written to Greeks who were skeptical of such claims when many of these witnesses were still alive. So it was a risky claim if it could be disproved by little firsthand research.

5.The sheer existence of a thriving,empire-conquering early Christian church supports the truth of the resurrection claim.

The spread on the power of the testimony that Jesus was raised from the dead and that God had thus made him both Lord and Christ(Acts 2:36).The lordship of Christ over all nations is based on his victory over death.This is the message that spread all over the world.Its power to cross cultures and create one new people of God was strong testimony of its truth.

6.The apostle Paul's conversion supports the truth of the resurrection.

He argues to a partially unsympathetic audience in Galatians 1:11-17 that his gospel comes from the risen Christ,not from men.His argument is that before his Damascus Road experience when he saw the risen Jesus,he was violently opposed to the Christian faith(Acts 9:1). But now, to everyone's astonishment, he is risking his life for the gospel (Acts 9:24-25). His explanation: The risen Jesus appeared to him and authorized him to spearhead the Gentile mission(Acts 26:15-18).Can we credit such a testimony? This leads to the next argument.


7.The new Testament witnesses do not bear the stamp of dupes or deceivers.

How do you credit a witness? How do you decide whether to believe a person's testimony? The decision to give credence to a person's testimony is not the same as completing a mathematical equation. The certainty is of a different kind,yet can be just as firm. When a witness is dead,we can base our judgement of him only on the content of his writings and the testimonies of others about him. How do Peter and John and Matthew and Paul stack up?

In my Judgement (and at that point we can live authentically only by our own judgement - Luke 12:57), these men's writing do not read like the works of gullible, easily deceived or deceiving men. Their insights into human nature are profound. Their personal commitment is sober and carefully stated. Their teachings are coherent and do not look like the invention of unstable men. The moral and spiritual standard is high. And the lives of these men are totally devoted to the truth and to the honor of God.


8.There is a self-authenticating glory in the gospel of Christ's death and resurrection as narrated by the biblical witnesses.


The New Testament teaches that God sent the Holy Spirit to glorify Jesus as the son of God. Jesus said,"When the Spirit of truth comes,he will guide you into all the truth... He will glorify me" (John 16:13). The Holy Spirit does not do this by telling us that Jesus rose from the dead. He does it by opening our eyes to see the self-authenticating glory of Christ in the narrative of his life and death and resurrection. He enables us to see Jesus as he really was,so that he is irresistibly true and beautiful. The apostle stated the problem of our blindness and the solution like this: "The god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers,to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ,who is the image of God... For God, who said,' Let light shine out of darkness,' has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ" (2 Corinthians 4:4,6).

A saving knowledge of Christ crucified and risen is not the mere result of right reasoning about historical facts. It is the result of spiritual illumination to see those facts for what they really are: a revelation of the truth and glory of God in the face of Christ - who is the same yesterday today and forever.

*God bless you as you take your precious time and resources to read and study His word with an open mind and being a partner of the KINGDOM FINANCIERS to take this message of hope to the lost world.*

THE GOOD FRIDAY

                                   

Good Friday is the Friday Preciding Easter Sunday and is the day Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross. We as Christians or The Kingdom Family we can celebrate on Good Friday because of Christ's death on the cross which has a unique significant to us believers.
It was a sacrifice so that we could receive the gift of eternal life. Jesus bore our sins,shame and burden on the cross. The results changed the course of humanity and what men meant for evil to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through killing him,God meant it for good to save us from eternal punishment of sin that we had!! Glory to God.

                                              BIBLE VERSES

Romans 5:6-7> You see, at right time,when we were still powerless,Christ died for the ungodly.Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man,though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:while we were still sinners,Christ died for us.
Since we have now been Justified by his blood,how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!
For if,when we were God's enemies,we were reconciled to him through the death of his son, how much more,having been reconciled,shall we be saved through his life!

1 Peter 3:18>For Christ died for sins once for all,the righteous for the unrighteous to you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit.

1 Peter 2:24>"He committed no sin,and no deceit was found in his mouth"

John 3:16-17>"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son,that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.For God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world,but to save the world through him."

Mark 9:31>Because he was teaching his disciples.He said to them, "The son of man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men.They will kill him,and after three days he will rise,"

Isaiah 53:3-9>He was despised and rejected by men,a man of sorrows,and familiar with suffering.
like one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised,and we esteemed him not.

Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows,
yet we considered him stricken by God,
smitted by him,and afflicted.

But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.

We all,like sheep,have gone astray,each of us has turned to his own way;
and the Lord has on him the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before her shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.

By oppression and judgement he was taken away.
And who can speak of his descendants?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of my people he was stricken.

He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
nor was any deceit in his mouth.

                                                   Matthew 27:11-65
                                                   Jesus before pilate
Meanwhile Jesus stood before the governor,and the governor asked him,"Are you the king of the Jews?"
"Yes,it is as you say," Jesus replied.
When he was accused by the chief priests and the elders,he gave no answer.Then Pilate asked him,"Don't you hear the testimony they are bringing against you?"14 But Jesus made no reply,not even to a single charge-to the great amazement of the governor.
15 Now it was the governor's custom at the Feast to realese a prisoner chosen by the crowd. At that time they had a notorious prisoner,called Barabbas.17 So when the crowd had gathered,Pilate asked them,"which one do you want me to release to you: Barabbas or Jesus who is called Christ?" 18 For he knew it was out of envy that they had handed Jesus over to him.
19 While Pilate was sitting on the judge's seat,his wife sent him this message:"Don't have anything to do with that innocent man,for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him."
20 But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowd to ask for Barabbas and to have Jesus executed.
"Which of the two do you want me to realese to you ?"asked the governor.
"Barabbas,"they answered.
22 "What shall I do,then,with Jesus who is called Christ?"Pilate asked.
                 They all answered,"Crucify him!"
23 "Why? What crime has he commited ?"asked Pilate.
                     But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!"
24 When Pilate saw that he was gettiing nowhere,but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. "I am innocent of this man's blood,"he said. "It is your responsibility!".........

ADVANTAGE OF PARTNERSHIP

                                             
                                                     ADVANTAGE OF PARTNERSHIP
It will be an understatement to say that those who give to the work of the Kingdom will be given back to in "good measure"

Partnering with men of good character and integrity is actually partnering with God in all ramifications.When this is clearly understood,one would walk in the divine provision at all levels.The grace and the anointing in the lives and hearts of those who are truely connected to him or her in true spirit of Kingdom covenant partnership.

It is unfortunate that this ministry of helps,had suffered setbacks in time past due to the lack of accurate teaching priest in this area.Most men who preach this only touch and emphasize one aspect of the truth,which is centered on the building of their own ministry while they discourage their people from sowing into other ministry outside their community.

They say,"It is better to sow on a ground you know than the one you don't know".This statement undermines the concept of God. The church of Christ represent as a global community. This also shows lack of revelation and accurate understanding in regards to body ministry. The body of Christ definitely is not made out of one denomination or group structures, the church we are told is made up of many members.Imagine what will happen in the structure of the human body if one aspect refuses to function. It will definitely affect other parts of the body with great impact and consequences.

We are never to merchandise or pervert the truth for our own selfish purpose and gain.But we are admonished to build;train and release people into the areas of their gifting and grace to serve the body of Christ. One aspect of the body (ministry) is a larger part of Christ body.We must never monopolise God's resources;spiritual,financial or human capital.

Ministers and members of the body of Christ must be encouraged to release their resources in partnership with other godly ministries and churches who are desperately in need of their support.Remember,it is God that knits the hearts of men and not the church leaders. The wealth that could be released for the end-time harvest will only come to the ministers that believe in the philosophy of releasing men at all levels. Barnabas was released to Paul because of the greater assignment given to Apostle Paul.

Without the ministry of Barnabas,Paul would not have been able to penetrate the council of Elders in Jerusalem with his message since he was new to them.But he was endorsed because of the integrity of the ministry of Barnabas. We must learn to endorse other arm of the body that needs encouragement.Ministries and their leaders will scout for preachers oversea,paying large sum of money just for a week meeting while there are local anointed ministers who can deliver the same message if not better than the foreign counterparts but the fact that they don't have a huge ministerial cloud around them they are automatically rejected.

When established ministers begin to believe in young upcoming ministry (ministers)irrespective of where they are;the spirit of sonship and fatherhood would be restored to the church in such a way that sends the right signal that the body of Christ have come of age.

I believe God is raising partners for all those who are presently faced with one lack or the other in their field of work.The God who supplies our needs will release men both within and outside our ministry to help us fulfill our calling. We must not be discouraged to stop building the walls,since he who has called us is faithful to His promise.We must remain faithful to His word and not allow the present need to side track us from the eternal call."For the Lord is my Shepherd,I shall not want....."

As the Lord stirs your heart starts supporting ministers and ministries doing the will of God.This ministry needs your support.The Lord has given us mandate to declare the uncompromising gospel of his Kingdom to this generation and with your prayers and financial support we can move mountains hindering communities and regions from accepting message of truth.

WHAT IS THE PATTERN FOR PARTNERSHIP

                           
                                           WHAT IS THE PATTERN FOR PARTNERSHIP
                                                                        Hebrews 3:4
The pattern for partnership is built and established on a heart that is burdened in seeing the work of God's Kingdom advance in an accelerated capacity.Indeed, it is God that locates and knit the hearts of men together in partnership so as to witness a release of God's anointing in a dimension that will bring the nation before the cross of Christ.

First, it is important to know that partnership cannot be initiated by the flesh. Trying to package your messages for the sole purpose of creating financial partnership I do not believe is the right way of seeking support even though the Lord might use your material to connect you to people.

Motive for ministry should not be making money but blessing people with whatever the Lord has given to us.It is not the way we look or are able to persuade people with eloquent speaking to grant us favor but the connection of our hearts to the father who connect us with His resource here on earth. The Lord knows how to direct the hearts of men to those who are connected to His uncompromising truth.

Partnership is divine since it involves men giving their substance (money)or prayers to someone they cannot see or monitor their stewardship. It must be clear that faith,obedience,integrity and the direction of the Spirit must be visible in the ministry of true partnership or else one may get discouraged by not seeing immediate result of what person been supported. Once a seed is sown,one has no more say concerning that(seed)gift since it has been sowed already. Apostolic [insight]Wisdom must be received in order to know how to disburse the seed to the areas of need right from the local needs to global level.

For every house is built by some one, But the builder of all things is God.

THE HEART OF A TRUE PARTINER

                               
             
It is easier to be willing to give when you don't have than to give when there are screaming needs all around you.A partner is one who is committed to advancing the work of His father because he or she is always led by the Spirit and not one who only gives when it is convenient.A Partner is one who thinks first of the man on the field, in a desert somewhere waiting and believing God for their next supply of food and gospel materials.

He or she is ever mindful of God's men and women on the field irrespective of his condition. He is ever ready and willing to put a smile on their faces through his provision.He lives his life to support the minister of the gospel in whatever area the Lord will demand.

A careful look at the foundational pattern of the early church finds its expression in true Kingdom partnership,which of course,helped a great deal in advancing the work of the church at all the levels.How the churches were interconnected both in the gifts and grace of God upon their life;not one of them lacked one thing, they had everything in common which we lack today(Acts 4:32-37).

As we advance in this revelation of this present season concerning the release of Kingdom wealth,Kingdom financiers will partner with ordinary men and women whose heart has been processed thoroughly by famine and drought in their field of ministry. They will witness a great release of abundance as God visits their land with rain and bread.The power of the word of God in their lives would attract the kings of the earth to favor them just like Nehemiah attracted favor from the king,who allowed him to take wood in the king's forest for the building of God's house.(Nehemiah 2:5-8).

The level of wealth that would flow into the hands of God's stewards in these last days cannot be gathered since their storehouse is built for the furtherance and the establishment of God's purposes. But at this point, it is important for us to note that the work of the adversary like Samballat and Tobiah would be further taken to a higher level in trying to stop those appointed by God for the release of this kingdom wealth since Satan's major weapon of attack is built on deceit,selfishness and pride.

The enemy is perpetually flooding the heart and mind of people today with endless chains of needs and wants(2Timothy 3:1-2). Their desire is to continually satisfy their carnal {passion}desires,thereby shutting their bowels of mercy.(James 4:1-3). Believers must identify this spirit self-centeredness and deal with them on intercessory ground for these strongholds to be completely broken.

It is God's will and responsibility to see to the provision of His men but it is also our sole responsibility to discern and receive the provision already given to us by the Lord(Ephesians 1:3)for others around us.As God initiates the hearts of His {leaders}people with this Kingdom principle of divine provision, they must build the platform whereby they can interface with their partners in true Kingdom relationship,which is the core purpose of partnership."The soul that waters shall be watered back".

The minister has the responsibility of constantly watering the ground that produces his "bread"both in prayer and sharing of the present truth. The ground(The partner)must be cultivated in spirit and in truth for better productivity in his life. In no way must it be assumed that the partner does not need the assistance of the minister.

The minister must not lose his responsibility as a spiritual man to discern the need of his partners just like Elijah discerned the need of the Tushbite woman even through the need was not obvious to Elijah until it was found out that she had no child. Elijah had enjoyed the blessing and the provision of this woman by building a place of rest for him anytime he comes to town.This shows the heart of God in taking care of His ministers who remain faithful to the assignment assigned to them. God will meet us at the point of our need if we will remain faithful and obedient to Him.

AS A KINGDOM FINANCIER YOU NEED TO HAVE A HEART OF A TRUE PARTNER.

PATTERNS FOR PARTNERSHIP

                                                 
                                                    PATTERNS FOR PARTNERSHIP
All successful projects can in one way or the other be traced to the foundation and structure of the precise partnership. An example of this can be seen in the concept of church in the Acts of Apostles. The church stands as a true representative of a functional community in giving and receiving of God's Kingdom resource for development.The life of the people shows the three levels of connection(relationship)in life which are;Dependent,Independent and interdependent. This connection also reveals three stages of ministry development. A clear understanding of these stages will help the minister to flow and function with a higher capacity of the anointing and wisdom in his area of calling and gifting.

Today,it is sad to know that most ministers called of God,gifted and empowered for their generation lacked the basic ministerial support because of the insensitive attitude of some brethren and church leaders. The word of God teaches us that life is in stages. Each stage prepares us for the next as we respond to its instructions and dealings.

Young itinerant ministers and ministries are supposed to depend on the corporate church community for their support and welfare,especially in the areas of finance and socioeconomic development. Where there is lack of adequate finance to express their gifts and anointing in the areas of their calling, this invariably leads to discouragement and frustration in most cases.

This has nothing to do with the period in which God processes His man,incomplete trust and obedience to His will in pure faith. The same God who led Elijah to the brook also commanded the widow of Zarephath to feed him after the brook dried up. The second stage demands that we grow mature and become independent in our service to God and man.

At this point faith is released to believe God for some basic things because the level of maturity at this stage has grown to a point where God responds to the truth of our hearts in meeting our needs. A lot of testimonies are given at this stage of how one prayed and got results. This does encourage the minister;even though the level of responsibility and accountability is enormous.

Now the last stage reveals the true ministry of partnership. Here, everybody depends on somebody for greater impact in the work of ministry. Irrespective of the level, whatever we have at this stage of ministry can never be enough to fulfill the vision of God. Help by the spirit of must be sought for to assist the work in order to move it to the next height. Partners are raised not just for financial support but also for the total spiritual edification of the church. Every joint supplies its gifts for the building of the total church.

At this point God knits the hearts of people together in prayers and other forms of support for the advancement of the Kingdom.This was the stage of the Philippian church that assisted the church in Judea of Galatia for the establishment and welfare of the people. This has nothing to do with their doctrinal connection or individual benefits but the command by the spirit for the mutual benefit of the churches.

The grace to understand the uniqueness of each person's calling and gifting will help other parts of the church to function better especially in releasing resources. For too long, the enemies have succeeded in blocking the members of the body of Christ from enjoying each other's giftings because of the spirit of Mammon, self-interest insecurity denominationalism.

There are people that God has called and commissioned with the Kingdom wealth to help strengthen the feeble knees and the weary hands in the field of labour that are shut up within the walls of some of these institutions who perpetually obstruct their people from giving to a ground that is not directly connected to membership or so called vision. And so,they perpetually engage themselves in some kind of soul motivated project instead of diverting required resource to help their fellow (ministers)brother who is urgently in need.

I believe that wealth and prosperity are gifts in the hands of men  who understand the burden of advancing the purpose of God's Kingdom to the next frontier. Wealth is never a tool to gratify our selfish desires. It is never to be abused for building self empires and ungodly security. The Bible says,"God is the one who teaches our hands to make wealth that He may establish His covenant."The moment we lose focus of the assignment of money, the spirit of Mammon hijack the soul and brings us into an attitude of pride self-delusion and ultimate destruction if repentance is sought after.That means, the enemy can easily take the advantage our ignorance and arrogance to hinder the advancement and impact of the work of God in a community or region. Every partner in the Kingdom must understand why God has placed certain resources in their hands. This cannot be over emphasized.

THE REVELATION OF PARTNERING WITH GOD

                                   

Beloved, since the age began,God has always desired men and women who can partner with Him in advancing His purpose and plans within the earth.We know too well that God does preach the gospel of salvation to other except He first raise a spokes man for Himself.
Kingdom reality and impact only does not come without the aid of a man and woman who have completely given themselves over to the mission of the Lord in whatever field they have been called to function.The Lord's plan of redeeming the world from the clutches of sin had to come through the availability of Mary and Joseph the parents of Jesus Christ the Messiah before such purpose became a reality.

God requires the cooperation of {Spiritual}man for the in gathering of the souls into His kingdom.With this understanding,it is clear that partnership is God's idea for accomplishing His purpose at all levels.The mercy and the grace of God are about to be poured a fresh on those who have offered themselves for the manifestation of the kingdom of God in this season like never before.But it is highly important for us to ask ourselves some basic questions on how we have dispensed the grace{Resources} given to us in time past for the building and establishing of His kingdom.

The grace and the gift of God are given to enhance the development in life to make the right impact in the communities, cities and nation we have been assigned by the Lord.The platform of enjoying the resources of the kingdom in this present season is largely dependent on how well we have been able to give an account of our stewardship,"He who is faithful in little,much shall be committed into his hands."

Those that God has called and will be calling in this ministry gift of helps(partnership)will need to take to heart with clear understanding the principles and scriptural basis for their functionality in order to flow in full benefit of their mission(Rom.12:6-8) 

Your effectiveness and responsibility is basically built on the levels of your spirituality in regards to the law of seed time and harvest time. You must understand with clarity that every seed sown is to enhance the development and acceleration of God's kingdom in the life of the minister(s)and ministries you are called into partnership with.

The ability to count the cost before embarking on this laudable project is highly important as you will face a new level of resistance in your financial stability because the enemy does not want the kingdom of God to be accelerated into higher realms of possibilities.

The enemy will challenge any person or group of people who desires to help finance the work of the kingdom. So, it is important for you to be spiritually persuaded, you must count the cost and receive the faith and grace for this loadable assignment. Obviously,the reward of supporting the work of God in the hand of a true genuine minister can never be measured in quality and quantity. The father never owes anyone for He is our great reward!

The scriptures says "who would want to build a house and will not first sit down and count the cost;in other words balancing our zeal on knowledge ultimately helps to bring the work to a desirable finish.

Spiritual knowledge must be sought for,concerning giving and assisting the work of the ministry so as to not get weary by temporal financial set backs which are bound to come don't be fooled. The level to which we allow God to work concerning our finance is to the degree of our impact in giving to ministers and ministries who are at the forefront of their mission and calling.The more we give to the work of God,the more we receive of His grace over our lives,family,business and ministry. Luke 12:22-24.

OUR ABUNDANCE THEIR NEED

Have you ever one day been in a state that you cannot afford to meet your basic needs? 
If you can put a meal,let me say lunch or dinner on your table for the family or let me say your children.Have they ever missed a meal or something to put on? if not then thank God. If you can afford to live in a five star hotel with your family please consider this dear ones who have nothing at all. If you can exchange your wardrobe on a daily basis thank God. There are some who see dinner in the theory or they have dinner once a day or not at all.
Some don't even remember when they first exchanged their wardrobe and to them this is a new vocabulary.
I have been in this situation and I know and have also experinced what this dear ones miss in life,living in poor conditions,no food, no water to drink or even take a shower,always having sleepless nights due to hunger or let me say empty stomaches.
Have you ever considered this little and desperate families? if the answer is yes then you are really a true kingdom financer by what you do in the world. But if not, it is not too late you can as well start with the little that you think cannot help,it can help this family of the widow and the orphan to buy food,clothing and improve the living standards of these people.
You are the joy of these group of needy people by being a kingdom financer by giving towards the widows and the orphans and the church projects. As you advance the kingdom of God here on earth remember that you are also advancing in life. As we give back to the society keep in mind that OUR ABUNDANCE, THEIR NEED.

Please be among the kingdom financers,running the kingdom business professionally and efficiently for the Glory of God by Transforming and Improving local lives of the suffering community. God bless you!!!

EDUCATION POWER

EDUCATION MINUS GOD IS MEANINGLESS. PUT GOD FIRST IN YOUR EDUCATION AND HE WILL GRANT YOU THE DESIRES OF YOUR HEART.
                    Samuel King
If we really want a change in  the society we are living today,we need to teach and educate the people around us the benefits of Education and its impact in the lives of the people. Train a child in the way he or she should go and he or she will not depart from it.
Our communities today are faced with poverty and challenges because we have failed to meet the need of educating the community to be self reliance and working hard to achieve its goals.
We can bring a different in the world by being in the position of financing the kingdom of God. outside there are  children who have dropped out of school due to inadequate funds to meet their needs in education.
As kingdom financiers we trust and believe that in the near future we are going to impact the society by educating young people in the community. We need to be the change we want to see in the world. And we can only do this when we come together and work as a one united family.
Education is the first key thing to take to the society,for my people perish due to lack of knowledge. Knowledge is more needed for us to undestand the importance of being kingdom financiers.

If we have silver and gold, we must serve and honor God with it,for the property is His.If we have not silver and gold,we must honor Him with such as we have,and he will accept us. The earth and its fullness belongs to him. For every beast of the forest is his, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. Therefore let us offer unto God thanksgiving and pay our vows unto the most high for the world is his and the fullness thereof.
