Love And Serve

family

 

I remember hearing about a man who attended a seminar and upon arriving told someone that he had come there to learn how to manage his family. One of the older leaders responded something on this order, “Don’t try to manage your family; learn to love and serve them, then leadership in the family will come as a by-product of the loving and serving.”
“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her” (Eph.5:25, NKJV)

Doing More With More Results-Part 2

More Kingdom advancements (continued from Monday):
 (3) The other side of the world

Within minutes of their occurrence, we receive reports of miracles and miraculous intervention from the other side of the globe. Prophecy, declaration and intercession are all in real-time with the events. We can put Global communications, Europesomeone in another country inside 24 hours or put training materials there within a few days or put materials there in a few seconds by emailing files. We have emailed files within minutes to countries 1,000’s of miles away to become part of the curriculum of brand new Bible schools.

   (4) People getting saved while reading magazine

Business people have been saved while reading prophetic declarations in FICMI magazine (Jorge and Lorena Gamboa-Free In Christ Ministries). These ministers designed the magazine to reach the lost. It is placed in businesses all over the greater Houston area. They are putting our monthly prophetic declarations in the magazine in place of a horoscope.

   (5) Prophecy over man elected governor

In another country I prophesied to a man that he would go into politics and open doors for the Kingdom to advance in his country. At that time, he was not involved in politics. He ended up running for governor. He was opposed by a mafia-backed candidate. The day before the election, they had him thrown in jail and the newspaper had already printed the front page announcing his opponent’s victory. BUT he won the election while in jail and the newspaper had to reprint. He has since opened doors of opportunity for the Kingdom to advance in his country.

May The Lord Do A Life-Work

thrilled

 

May the Lord do a life-work in you before the end of this week. May it be a work
that will settle something, that will loose something, that will open up something,
that will thrill your soul and cause your spirit to soar. May it be a part of your
present victories and your future accomplishments.

“…we pray for you all the time—pray that our God will make you fit for what he’s
called you to be, pray that he’ll fill your good ideas and acts of faith with his own
energy so that it all amounts to something. If your life honors the name of Jesus,
he will honor you. Grace is behind and through all of this, our God giving himself
freely, the Master, Jesus Christ, giving himself freely.” (2Thess.1:11-12, Msg)

Doing More With More Results

We can do far more now with more results. In this year we can do what we could not do 100 years ago, even 50 years ago. We ministered to the Attorney General in another country while he was in the reception area of his president’s office waiting for his appointment. We spoke with him over the phone connection of a laptop computer. 

 New Age Office  (1) Annual report

Recently we received the annual report from our server for our blog page (martygabler.com. In 2012, 60 countries visited our blog page but in 2013, 78 countries visited our blog page. We receive regular hits from several Middle East countries including Israel. Just in the last few days there were visits from Mozambique, Serbia,  Mexico, Argentina, Czech Republic, Italy, France, Germany, Philippines, Bermuda, Costa Rica, Colombia, Australia, Egypt and Democratic Republic of the Congo. The list for the last 30 days is much longer. Some of those people have left comments on the blog page in broken and misspelled English thanking us for the truths we post, telling us what it has meant to them and asking us to please continue. Yes, the Kingdom is even advancing technologically. 

   (2) FaceBook 

Face Book has brought us back into contact with family members,  old friends and neighbors of mine and Kathy’s that we haven’t seen or heard from in many years. By means of that bridge we are, once again, able to speak into their lives. People that we pastored in the ‘70’s and ‘80’s have contacted us and those contacts have served to bridge other gaps of relationships that faded away over time. But those threads in the fabric of the advancing Kingdom have been rejoined for more effectiveness.
(No. 3-5 of up-to-date advancements will be posted Wednesday.)

Challenged To A New Level

next levelAs the people of God assemble today, may they be filled with the fullness
of God and challenged to a new level in what our Lord has in His purposes
for each member of the Body of Christ, as we stand for our families and as
we confront the present climate of culture in our nation.

“May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length,
and depth, and height;  19  And to know the love of Christ, which passeth
knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.  20  Now unto
him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think,
according to the power that worketh in us,” (Eph.3:18-20, KJV)


Not Fall In Snare

SnareWe shall not fall subject to the fowler’s snare.
Though snares be laid for us, we will not stray

from our Lord’s precepts nor His presence.
He will keep us.

“The wicked have laid a snare for me, Yet I
have not strayed from Your precepts.” (Ps.119:110, NKJV)

“The wicked do their best to throw me off track,
but I don’t swerve an inch from your course.”

(Ps.119:110, Msg)

You Haven’t Seen Everything

A few months ago we were battling with financial and physical matters. Every solution I could think of was blocked and I couldn’t see any resolve, even on the horizon. Through the course of those days it seemed that a sense of panic would creep up in my gut. Honestly, I had come to the conclusion that we were in a pit that was hopeless.

out of holeAfter wrestling with this insurmountable dilemma for about two weeks, and arriving at certain negative conclusions (trying to choke back panic and hopelessness), I dreamed that I was standing in a wide-open place. I noticed a man walking toward me. When he got right in front of me he stopped and looked me right in the eye. He raised his hand, pointed at me and, matter-of-factly said, “You haven’t seen everything.” Then I woke up.

My foregone conclusions had me convinced that I had exhausted all possibilities because I felt I had seen everything (in all my musings and mental exercises) that might be brought to bear on the difficulties, and those things just simply were not available to us as a solution.

A trembling began down deep inside as I realized that the word in the dream was absolutely correct. I had not seen everything. Within 72 hours the whole thing turned around! Please understand that you have not seen everything. Not only have you not seen everything, but there are things that have not yet been formed in your behalf. (Compare Job 26:12-14; Isa.48:6-7; 1Cor.2:9) The cloud “the size of a man’s hand” did not begin to form until Elijah’s servant walked down to the sea and looked the seventh time (1K.18:44). Because the Kingdom is advancing and bringing with it facilitation for purpose “some of the best days of your life haven’t happened yet.” The Kingdom is advancing and, as you are in the Kingdom, it is advancing you with it.
