Don't Push Pause, Turn Aside & Seek

"Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." --Proverbs 119:105
RENEW your mind today by CHOOSING transformation, spending time in His Presence pursuing His Word!

 
So Moses decided, “I must turn aside to look at this remarkable sight. Why does the bush not burn up?” --Exodus 3:3
REVELATION comes when we TURN ASIDE to seek, instead of simply taking note of something.

THE LORD SAYS...

"I am coming to MULTIPLY." The Lord is coming with GREAT INCREASE for the Pioneers in PROVISION, in BREAKTHROUGH and of VISION in the team work."

Keep fighting for those who are called to run with you. Keep fighting for unity. The Lord is going to STRENGTHEN, HEAL and INCREASE!

MOUNTAINTOPS await the PIONEERS.

You will be marked with JOY in 2017! You will know JOY upon JOY! This is your destiny year!

Believe it, receive it, claim it and declare it, Church!

Blessings!

 

HAVE A TESTIMONY & MORE

It's been a fruitful fast and we want to celebrate that with testimonies as we wrap up the fast this Sunday. Have a testimony to share? Let Pastor Katie know! 

"This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us."
--1 John 5:14
 
"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine..."    --Proverbs 17:22
 
Listen to Bill Johnson's "Gift of Hunger" on youtube. It connects to part of what God is saying to us.
 

LISTEN, BELIEVE & RECEIVE

It's a Kingdom day!

The Lord is saying incline your ear to Me (listen), believe what I say, and receive it! You must believe it in order to receive it.

Jeremiah 33:3
‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

The Enemy Plans But the Lord Laughs

Read Psalm 2, remembering:
The joy of the Lord is our strength. The enemy plans and threatening things try to come but the Lord laughs, and so should we. His Plan is powerful and eternal. We already have VICTORY through Mighty God! The Lord is establishing this truth in His sons.
Thank you, Lord!
 
Blessings to you this year as we move FORWARD in FAITH!
 
 

THE GIDEON MANDATE

From the winepress to dominion

 
“Go now in this your strength and deliver Israel from the hand of Midian. The Lord has sent you.”  — Judges 6:14
 
Gideon’s story begins in the winepress, the place of crushing. The winepress releases the sweetness and potency of the grapes and results in laughter and joy which is our strength. The winepress precedes the anointing.
 
Today we in the Church find ourselves, like Gideon, in the middle of a “Midianite Opression.”
 
  • HOW IS THE CHURCH?
                A. What is the condition?
                B.  How healthy is the Church?
                C.  Are we sharing the true message?
                D.  Are we making room for the Holy Spirit?
                E. Are we being good stewards of the Kingdom?
 
  • GOD IS LOOKING FOR A CHAMPION. IS IT ME?
  • QUALIFICATIONS OF A CHAMPION
              A. Disgust for our condition
              B. Threshing out the wheat (the Word of God) to eat in the midst of oppression.
              C. Hiding in the winepress. (The secret place of the most High) where the wine is gathered.
  • DO WE NEED A SIGN?
              A. Settle the debate!
              B. Clarity only comes when you go.
  • IDOLATRY. OUR NATIONAL PASTIME! 
             A. Pull down our fathers’ altars.
             B. Do not build our own altars.
  • THE GIDEON 300
             A. Vigilant, on guard while the brethren drank their fill.
             B. Poised for the inevitable battle
             C. Life was more important than thirst.
  • Kingdom Absolutes VS. Human Compromise
  • DNA VS. SDNA: The seed of righteousness vs. the seed of flesh
  • Planning, plowing, planting, praying: The four phases for a bountiful Harvest.
  • Preparation comes from planning and wisdom.
  • Inspiration and action comes from the Word of the Lord. –Judges 13:18

VICTORY DEPENDS ON OUR FAITHFUL, FEARLESS STEWARDSHIP OF THE LIGHT.

Gideon lived in a time when Israel was oppressed by another nation.
He remembered the promises of God but didn’t see them.
He was looking for an answer, for a leader.
 
So was God.
 
–Ken & Kay Koontz

FAITH & THE LAW OF AGREEMENT

Matthew 18:18-20
 
"Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst."

Anything that stands against that must come down!

THE CROSSROADS

Good Morning to His Beloved!

The Lord said Rowan County is a crossroads for My people and the Nations. He's opening up divine opportunities for us, saying, "Put your confidence in Me and do what I show you to do." We need to recognize these opportunities and do something with them, like the Woman at the Well.

"When you drink the Living Water, it becomes a well inside you, an internal source, not like a glass of water that is quickly gone." --Pastor Kay

Fire ants

We are poisoning all fire ant nests on the property Wednesday 10/5/16. Please stay off of grass areas and playground for 48hrs after.

Thanks,

Pastor Jade

HARVEST

Do you not say, It is yet four months, and the harvest comes? Behold, I say to you, Lift up your eyes and look on the fields, for they are white to harvest already.                                                                                                             - John 4:35 
 
Then He said to them, The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray to the Lord of the harvest that He may send forth laborers into His harvest.
                                                                                                            - Luke 10:2 
 
Lift up your eyes and see its easy!  People are ready.  We don't need to pray for the harvest, but pray for workers.
 
Sue-Apples fall from the tree in harvest season, sometimes they are bruised.  The Lord sends us out to pick up the fruit with special wisdom fro bruised apples.
 
Susan-When we see people's needs we can meet them simply and bring in the harvest.
 
Duane-Now is the time.
