God’s Redemptive Rule Extended

Handreaching1The following is an excerpt from a message by MARTY GABLER. (Marty is speaking at Kingdom Equipping Congress 2016 ** March 2-4. The theme is “Sons/Daughters of the Kingdom”.

We are instructed by our Lord to pray, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” It goes without saying that (1) we are to expect that Kingdom to come as we pray and (2) we are the ones through whom that Kingdom is demonstrated. Creation is groaning for the manifestation of the sons of God who have given themselves over to the redemptive rule of God and allow that rule to be extended through them.

Sons Walk in Authority

Davidgoliath
As the people of God assemble today, may they realize the power
of being a son of God, rejoice in being God’s sons and walk in
that authority over the powers and entities that seek to deceive
them hoping that they will live mediocre, defeated lives.

“But as many as received him, to them gave He power to
become the sons of God, even to them that
believe on His name:” (Jn.1:12)

God’s Sons and Daughters

The following is an excerpt from an article by DR. DON CRUM. (Dr. Crum is speaking at Kingdom Equipping Congress 2016. The theme is “Sons/Daughters of the Kingdom”.  Info: KINGDOM EQUIPPING CONGRESS

SceptercrownThe government of the Kingdom of God increases as God’s sons and daughters who are His ambassadors in the earthly realm, understand and operate more in the implementation of God’s “Foreign Policies” in the earth. Therefore, His rule and reign extend and expand throughout the nations, pulling them into alignment. Matt 13:33 “Jesus also used this illustration: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like the yeast a woman used in making bread. Even though she put only a little yeast in three measures of flour, it permeated every part of the dough.” God’s Kingdom Government is permeating throughout the nations through you and me as His Kingdom Ambassadors.
As God’s sons and daughters in the earth, we are entrusted with an amazing inheritance of kingly authority to legislate the affairs of nations by invoking God’s plans and policies on a massive global scale. We are rapidly moving out of the Congregational and into the Congressional in this hour. Understanding our delegated authority in Christ is imperative.

(Dr. Crum is president and founder of Leadership International, an organization designed to develop and train leaders with emphasis on integrity, courage, power and vision in the fields of church, government, business and education. Don serves in an advisory and mentoring role to presidents of nations, other government officials and military commanders. God uses him significantly to impact nations like Nigeria, Benin, China, Ghana, Israel, Russia, Korea, Mexico, India, England, Malaysia, the Ukraine and the United States.)

Both Hands on Plan A

The following is an excerpt from an article by MELISSA GABLER. (Melissa is speaking at Kingdom Equipping Congress 2016. The theme is “Sons/Daughters of the Kingdom”. Info: martygabler.com/kec2016)

handsonrope
This is the year to loose your grasp on plan B and take hold, with both hands, of plan A – His original intent for your life in 2016. If your answer is hidden, ask God what the right question is in this moment. Ask Him what, in you, might be hindering the answer. Ask Him what you need to know today. He’s got plans for you, He is not into punishing you. His M.O. is all about forgiveness, redemption, relation- ship, and promotion all for His glory. Hey, if He tells you it’s simply about timing then it’s really that simple. His timing is perfect. Look at the birth and life of Samuel. Perseverance is key! It’s going to be an amazing year. Get ready for your answers.

Don’t Limit the Limitless One

During the Gulf war I read about an interesting incident which happened to a sergeant who was a member of the Assemblies of God (I don’t remember which Assemblies publication it was. I am not attempting to quote but simply remember the story’s basic details). He and his men were awaiting orders at a designated position. While they were at this position, they were guarding some supplies. An Arab rode up on a camel and when he climbed CamelLoadedMandown, he presented the men with a small bundle. He was apparently quite desperate. It was obvious that he was pleading with the American soldiers but they were unable to understand the source of his desperation because the man only spoke Arabic. From a distance, the sergeant was sitting in a jeep watching the proceedings as the man fell to the ground and began drawing in the sand in an effort to communicate. Something in the sergeant’s heart was stirred as he observed the Arab’s frantic efforts. He walked over to where the commotion was and asked what was going on. The men showed him the bundle which contained an infant. The sergeant then asked the Arab what he needed. The Arab responded with great relief that, finally, someone could understand him. He told the sergeant that the baby was in desperate need of milk. It just so happened that there was a large stack of milk in cases which the soldiers were guarding. The sergeant gave his men orders to load as much milk as possible on the man’s camel. After the Arab had left, the soldiers approached the sergeant in amazement. One soldier spoke up and said, “Sir, none of us knew that you spoke Arabic.” The sergeant replied, “I don’t speak a word of Arabic.” With inquisitive looks, his men protested, “But, sir, we all heard you just speak Arabic to that man.” The sergeant heard himself speaking English and heard the Arab replying in English, yet they were both speaking Arabic. I wonder which operation of the Holy Spirit that was. Perhaps it was the compassionate heart of Jesus enabling two men to communicate who, otherwise, had no logical way of communicating. So, was it the gift of tongues or interpretation or was it mercy or the word of knowledge or the word of wisdom or perhaps some other? The end result was that a person who has experienced the power of the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues was able to communicate with a man who spoke a language which he did not understand. Why would we want to limit this Limitless God Jehovah which we serve?

Manifest Sons Manifest Christ

AdultSonFatherThe following is an excerpt from a message by SIMON PURVIS. (Bro. Simon is speaking at Kingdom Equipping Congress 2016. The theme is “Sons/Daughters of the Kingdom”. Info: martygabler.com/kec2016)

I watched the season when we all tried to find our purpose while living external. There is only one purpose in earth, different functions but only one purpose. In Philippians 1, Paul was in prison and the people were praying for his deliverance. He made this statement, “The thing is not whether I live or die, the purpose is that Christ be manifest. For me to live is Christ.” You may be called to be an apostle or prophet, but that is not your destiny or purpose. That is a function in which you are to manifest Christ. Until we find out that our purpose is to manifest Christ, we will not know what life is about because callings and giftings will not satisfy. When we know Him internally, the motive is love and the purpose is that Christ be manifest. There is no other purpose for the saints. If we know Christ externally and get caught up in destiny and purpose, we fight people to the top, but manifest sons manifest Christ. Things that were important in the external are no longer important when we move into the internal.(This article was taken from a teaching given by Simon Purvis.

Not the end of the Story

SamuelAnointDavidAs a mere boy David was anointed by one of the most powerful and effective prophets of all time. He was anointed, not to be pageboy, not to be the king’s confidant but to be king. But a few short years later he is standing in a cave shaking his head …. totally confused. This seemingly misplaced shepherd cries: Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life (Ps 142:4, NIV). But that was not the end of the story. That scenario certainly didn’t consume most of the pages of the book about David’s life. We also must read all the many, many pages which tell about all the battles David won. As he dances before the ark of the Lord while it is being brought to Zion (2Sam 6:14), they have come too late to tell him God does not make a way for those whom He calls. Scoffers have come too late to tell David God is not faithful, that God does not bring to victory those He ordains.
