Turning Influence for Kingdom Purpose

As the people of God assemble today, may they not forget those of high office and celebrity who need Jesus Christ and whose influence, once turned to righteous purpose, may have great impact for the Kingdom upon each of their generations respectively.   ”However, certain men joined with Paul and believed, among whom was Dionysius, a member of the aristocratic council, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.” (Acts 17:34, NMB)

The King and His Kingdom will be preached (Lk.9:2) March 7-9 at Kingdom Congress 2018.
“He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” (Lk.9:2, KJV)



Having Influence

We cannot have any more influence with someone than they have value for us.  When we refresh someone or meet a need, value is established.  Friendship and loyalty are of great value. “They have refreshed my spirit and yours. You should recognize the value of people like these.” (1Cor.16:18, NCV)

Value And Influence

We cannot have any more influence with someone than they
have value for us.  When we refresh someone or meet a need,
value is established.  Friendship and loyalty are of great value.

“They have refreshed my spirit and yours. You should
recognize the value of people like these.” (1Cor.16:18, NCV)

Not Duped


May the Lord give us presence of mind not to be duped when someone is trying to use us, or use our influence or our good name.

“They have no intention of living for our Master Christ. They’re only in this for what they can get out of it, and aren’t above using pious sweet talk to dupe unsuspecting innocents.” (Rom.16:18, Msg)

Invisible Influence

Invisible Influence (Kathy)

Isaiah 30:19-21, is another pivotal scripture for this year as it addresses coming out of a siege and getting downloads from the Holy Spirit.  For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem; you shall weep no more; He will be very gracious to you at the voice of your cry. When He hears it, He will answer you.  And Jehovah gives you the Walking on the Sidewalkbread of adversity and the water of affliction; yet your teachers shall not be removed into a corner any more, but your eyes shall see your teachers.  And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left.  “A word behind you,” indicates an invisible influence, that Divine Teacher that will prompt with conscience or memory or supernatural knowledge or wisdom.  I believe this year we should expect more Holy Spirit promptings like that “voice behind” with that instructive glimpse or a download while driving or a dream that impacts or a vision that equips. Therefore, it is essential that we recognize and acknowledge glimpses like dream parts, momentary visions and thoughts out of context.  A helpful 1-2-3, to train our thinking for Holy Spirit downloads this year would be, 1) acknowledge, 2) consider, 3) connect.  For His input to have impact, we must connect it to our lives through action or change or as a tool, a strategy, a weapon, a skill or a gift.  And to connect it, we must first consider it until we understand it.  Put your seat belt on and expect that “word behind you” to be louder and more frequent this year.

Where Did Everybody Go?

Where Did Everybody Go?

Hand and empty pocket

God will not replenish what is not our God-given measure of rule and sphere of influence. The prodigal kept spending and spending, oblivious to the inevitable end when the bag would be empty. From the moment he stepped out from under his father’s weighing and measuring of him, from the moment he removed himself from the sphere his father had observed was best for him, that bag of gold began to diminish. When humans imagine and design the product of their own aspirations, the pleasure of walking in it for a season doesn’t allow them to consider financial, moral or emotional bankruptcy (Prov 14:12; Isa 47:8-9) nor how readily they use people to their own ends. Our zeal and energies can take us some distance but the tank will eventually run out. As Lk 15:16 proves, people will grow weary and find some place else to be.
