Ekklesia ARISE!

www.facebook.com/events/245174989440825/

As we did an update today on the event, Father spoke to my heart to change it from “rising” to an apostolic command “ARISE!!” Rising is definitely a process and the Ekklesia has been in that transition, but now it is time to have a “Resurrection!” It means a “raising up, a “standing up again”, a making WHOLE!

In the days of the restoration of all things, restore means to “repair, to set in order, to complete.” Ps. 102:13- You will arise and have mercy upon Zion; For the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come.

As we enter into this new Era of the Ekklesia, the corporate overcomer and representative of the kingdom, we will Arise and stand on our feet, taking our place in the army of the Lord!

Ezekiel 37:10- So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath (the breath of life) came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, AN EXCEEDINGLY GREAT ARMY…

Yours for the kingdom,

Jim and Pam

Concerning, Continuing, and Considering!

Romans 1:1-5-  Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God which He promised before through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures, CONCERNING HIS SON JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name,…

Acts 28:30,31-  Then Paul dwelt two whole years in his own rented house, and received all who came to him, preaching the kingdom of God and teaching the things CONCERNING THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WITH ALL CONFIDENCE, NO ONE FORBIDDING HIM.

Acts 19:8-10-  And he went into the synagogue and spoke boldly for three months, reasoning and persuading CONCERNING THE THINGS OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.  But when some were hardened and did not believe, but spoke evil of the Way before the multitude, he departed from them and withdrew the disciples, reasoning daily in the school of Tyrannus.  And this continued for two years, so that all who dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.

Acts 8:5,12-  Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them…But when they believed Philip as he preached the things CONCERNING THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, both men and women were baptized.

Acts 1:3- …to whom He (Jesus) also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and SPEAKING OF THE THINGS PERTAINING TO AND CONCERNING THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

Acts 2:42-  AND THEY CONTINUED STEADFASTLY IN THE APOSTLE’S DOCTRINE AND FELLOWSHIP, IN THE BREAKING OF BREAD, AND IN PRAYERS.

I. Co. 1:4-9-  I thank my God always CONCERNING YOU FOR THE GRACE OF GOD WHICH WAS GIVEN TO YOU BY CHRIST JESUS, that you were enriched in everything by Him in all utterance and all knowledge, even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, so that you come short in no gift, waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.  GOD IS FAITHFUL, BY WHOM YOU WERE CALLED INTO THE FELLOWSHIP OF HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.

Heb. 3;1,2- Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, CONSIDER THE APOSTLE AND HIGH PRIEST OF OUR CONFESSION, CHRIST JESUS,  who was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as Moses also was faithful in all his house.

Apostolic Regional Ministry

DEMONSTRATING “BELIEVABLE” LOVE!  is the them of the AEGA Annual Texas Conference being held at “Christian Faith Church, 620 Front St. (Hwy. 36), Bellville, Texas  77418.”  The conference begins Friday night, January 17 at 7:00pm, continues Saturday, January 18 at 10am with lunch being served followed by an afternoon session.  Pastor Lynn Burling is the host and a regional Overseer with AEGA.  President and V.P. of AEGA, Drs. Henry and Jan Harbuck will be speaking and sharing, I will be speaking in the 10am service Saturday, and Bishop Michael Atunrase from Philadelphia, Pa. will be speaking following lunch Saturday afternoon.  Sensing a “divine shift” in that fellowship and a raising up of brand new leadership of leaders who will represent a “NEW BREED!”  Join us for this special time of convocation….

THAT ALL MAY SEE…

Ephesians 3:9-  …and to MAKE ALL SEE what is the fellowship (stewardship/administration) of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ;

What a statement made by Apostle Paul!  This is the same apostle who wrote in Philippians 3:10-  THAT I MAY KNOW HIM and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,…

This goes far beyond the thought of just having a personal relationship with Jesus so I can go to heaven someday!  He came that we 1) may KNOW Him, and 2) that all May see what is His eternal purpose to be accomplished in the earth.  He came from heaven to earth that we might manifest heaven “in” earth!   His eternal purpose brings His future and hope (destiny) in us!

Romans 8:29-  For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Romans 16:25-27-  Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began but now made manifest, and by the prophetic scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith–to God, alone wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever.  Amen.

Colossians 1:26-29-  the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints.  To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles:  which is Christ in YOU, the hope of glory.  Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, THAT WE MAY PRESENT EVERY MAN PERFECT (mature and complete) IN CHRIST JESUS.  To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.

APOSTOLIC KINGDOM ALIGNMENT

We are in a return to biblical, apostolic kingdom administration of the government of God through:

1) apostles (Steersmen)
2)  elders  (Shepherds)
3) deacons. (Servants)

These are the threefold gifts of administrations coming in place to help apostolic-based regional equipping centers, churches, and fellowships come into alignment with the kingdom of God!

Eph. 3:8,9-  To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, AND TO MAKE ALL SEE WHAT IS THE FELLOWSHIP (stewardship/administration) OF THE MYSTERY, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ;

Phil.1:1-5-  PAUL and Timothy, bondservants of Jesus Christ, TO ALL THE SAINTS IN CHRIST JESUS WHO ARE IN PHILLIPPI, WITH THE BISHOPS (overseers) and DEACONS;  Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now,…

 

I Co. 12:28-  And God has set (appointed) these in the church:
1) Apostles- Overseeing apostles
2) Prophets-  Apostolic prophets
3) Teachers-  Teaching apostles
AFTER THAT
:
MIRACLES-  wonder-workers
GIFTS OF HEALINGS-  then those with ability to heal the sick
HELPS-  helpers/servants
GOVERNMENTS-  administrators/stewards
VARIETIES OF TONGUES-  different (unknown) tongues
 
I. Timothy 1:11,12-  according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my entrust.  And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry,…(setting me in His service)

A Return to Biblical Foundations of the Apostolic Church

It will absolutely take a “citywide” church with “apostolic authority” and “kingdom alignment”, built upon the foundation of apostles and prophets to “turn back” the divisive spirit that is trespassing in our city!

Great sermons and great services will no longer “dispel the darkness” alone, it will take “prophetic proclamation” and “apostolic councils and elders” to be “gap-fillers” and “gate-keepers!”

Acts 13:1-4- Now in the church that was at Antioch there were certain prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen who had been brough up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. As the ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, “Separate unto Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away. So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit…

Watchman on the wall, what of the night? There’s a new day dawning and the son of righteousness is rising with Healing in His Wings…

EYE 2 EYE!

ISA. 52:8- Thy watchmen shall lift up their voice, with their voices together they shall sing: for they shall see EYE TO EYE WHEN THE LORD RESTORES ZION.

ISA. 58:12- And they that shall be of thee shall (re) build the old waste places (cities); thou shalt raise up the foundations of MANY GENERATIONS; and thou shall be called, ‘The Repairer of the Breach’ and ‘The Restorer of paths to Dwell in.’

Is. 52: 8
Is. 58:12
________
Ps. 110:2(0)- THE LORD SHALL SEND THE ROD OF THY STRENGTH OUT OF ZION: RULE THOU IN THE MIDST OF THINE ENEMIES.

I. Peter 5:1-4- The elders who are among you I exhort, I who am a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that will be revealed. Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock: AND WHEN THE CHIEF SHEPHERD APPEARS, YOU WILL RECEIVE THE CROWN OF GLORY THAT DOES NOT FADE AWAY.

NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH IN THE CITY: THE SAINTS, WITH THE BISHOPS (overseers) and DEACONS…

PHILL. 1:1- PAUL and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the SAINTS IN CHRIST JESUS which are at Phillippi, with the BISHOPS (Overseers) AND DEACONS:

IS THERE ANY S.E.E.D. YET IN THE B.E.D? (Womb of the church?)

S.AINTS
E.XHORTERS
E.VANGELISTS
D.ISCIPLES

B.ISHOPS
E.LDERS
D.EACONS

ACTS 8:5- THEN Philip (One of the Seven) went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ to them.
Acts 8:12-But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
Acts 21:8- And the next day we that were of Paul’s company departed, and came unto Caesera: and we entered into the house of PHILIP THE EVANGELIST, which was one of the seven; and abode with him.

I Tim. 4:13-14- Till I come, give attendance to reading, to EXHORTATION, to doctrine. Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. (eldership)
I Tim. 5:17- Let the elders who RULE WELL (bishops) be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching.
2 Tim. 1:6,11- Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.

JIM B.

Eph. 2:20- Having been built upon the foundations of the apostles and prophets, JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF being the chief cornerstone…

Local Church Leadership and Presbytery!

Joshua 3:4b, 5- “…for you have not passed this way before. And Joshua said to the people, “Sanctify (consecrate) yourselves, for tomorrow thw LORD will do wonders among you.”
 
The last dozen years or so we have corporately been moving into the “Joshua Generation!”  Of course, this is the shift from “Moses, the Man of God” to “Joshua, the new or next generation leader!”  He was established and set in by Moses and the elders of Israel!  He represents a “new breed”, a new order of ministry!! If you have begun or took a congregation/ministry in the last 5-10 years, you have by now noticed that “church or ministry that you saw before, is no longer the same!!”  Under-statement, right?!?  (smile)
 
We have not passed, or crossed over and gone beyond this way before!  Intellectualism (human wisdom) and administration abilities alone will no longer accomplish the task!  We must be “set apart” unto the LORD, and “set in” by proper eldership and relationship.  If you are “pastoring” today and do not have a “prophetic-apostolic-presbytery” (PAP) of two or three apostolic-prophetic fathers/elders, you are no doubt experiencing tremendous frustration/anxiety over your current condition!
 
This is the day of sincere relationships and apostolic team-ministry that will help set order and peace in the assembly ministry!!  Pastor, do not be afraid, “for God has not given you a spirit of fear (timidity), but of power and of love and if a sound mind!”  (2 Tim. 1:7)
 
I. Timothy 4:14-  “Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which as given you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.”  (presbytery-body or council of apostles and prophets and teachers)  JB.
