“Bless the Lord, O my soul … who satisfies your years with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle.” (Psalm 103:2,5)

The Bible speaks much about renewal. Abraham lived a full life and was rich in all things when he died at the ripe old age of 175. His wife Sarah was gorgeous in her older years and gave birth to her first child in her nineties. Caleb at age 85 was eager to fulfill prophetic destiny. Moses began to lead Israel through the wilderness in his eighties and in his older years his eyes did not grow dim. When we receive Christ we are filled with eternal life. This is God’s glorious life. You can have expectation to be renewed daily through the Word of God.

God wants your strength, vitality, and beauty to be rejuvenated regularly.

We do not need to buy into the lie that declares we will diminish in vitality and appearance as we age. We can always be fresh. As our days are, so shall our strength be! (Deuteronomy 33:25). We can always radiate the glory of the Lord. In fact, the Word reveals that, “The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former” (Haggai 2:9). You are blessed with rejuvenation in Christ. Eternal life – “God-life” – dwells within you. Rejoice and plan with expectation for a glorious future!

You can activate this truth in your life by Confessings Powerful Prayer Directives over your life daily. Look in the mirror and proclaim with confidence the beauty, energy, renewed favor, and brightness of mind and vision you carry in the Lord. Decree youthfulness with confidence and faith over the awesome person you see in the mirror (you!).

 Prophetic Prayer Directives:

  1. I am refreshed and rejuvenated in the Lord. I am invigorated and renewed.
  2. Every living cell in my body is rejuvenated.
  3. I am empowered by the Lord in my inner man and as a result I am full of vigor and vitality.
  4. I receive age reversal – my youth is being renewed as the eagle.
  5. I decree Christ in me is the hope of glory (bounty, splendor, majesty) for my body, soul, and spirit. I am filled with His glory.
  6. I celebrate my salvation in Christ daily and as a result I am rejuvenated, refreshed and replenished.
  7. As my days are so shall my strength be.
  8. I am ever strengthened and rejuvenated from “glory to glory.”
  9. I am blessed with eternal life activating daily in me.
  10. I am renewed this day because the Holy Spirit is filling me with life and light.

For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct him?  But we have the mind of Christ.”   — 1 Corinthians 2:16

Have you ever thought of how wonderful it would be to think just like God? I have good news for you – you can!  When the Spirit of God dwells within you, you have the mind of Christ.  It is given to you in your salvation package when you receive Christ.  Very few, however, activate and utilize it, but every believer can.

How many times have you leaned on your own understanding for solutions to problems before going to the Lord for His divine answers?  I believe we all fall short in this but we can change our ways and seek Him for insight, solutions, knowledge, wisdom, counsel and understanding whenever we are in need of these things. All these blessings are all available to us in the mind of Christ, all the time. We simply need to access His mind by faith.

Here are some keys to help you cultivate the activation of the mind of Christ that dwells within you.

  1. Believe that you possess the mind of Christ within your new nature.
  2. Nurture the mind of Christ within you by the renewing of your mind through the Word. Meditate on His Word and you will discern the will and ways of God.
  3. When needing insights, solutions, knowledge, wisdom, counsel and understanding for situations in life, inquire of the Lord by humbling yourself before Him and requesting His response through prayer.
  4. Spend time with the Lord listening for Him to share His heart with you and waiting on Him with expectation for His divine insights.
  5. When you receive His insights, believe them and apply them.

Bible characters like Daniel and Joseph had “divine intelligence” operating in their lives. They knew God’s solutions for problems and as a result they affected their nation.  Can you imagine what the world would be like if every Christian accessed the mind of Christ? I think the world would be a better place, don’t you?

Prayer Directives

Here are some powerful decrees to activate the Mind of Christ within you:

I decree that:

  1. I have the mind of Christ residing in my inner man.
  2. The mind of Christ lives big in me and is full of all the knowledge, wisdom, insights, understanding and solutions that I need.
  3. I possess “divine intelligence.”
  4. I do not lean unto my own understanding, but in all my ways I acknowledge God.
  5. God’s ways are higher than my ways, therefore I humble myself before Him and receive His understanding.
  6. Through the mind of Christ I can access the knowledge of witty inventions.
  7. The mind of Christ reveals thing I need to now about the future.
  8. The mind of Christ teaches me to make godly decisions daily.
  9. The mind of Christ grants me good memory and recall.
  10. I have the ability to retain knowledge.

Eight Decrees to Bring Healing and Alignment to Your Nation In 2022!

                                                  I declare that:

1.  Every plot, ploy, attack, assignment, minion and manifestation of the enemy sent against my nation will be revealed and rendered null and void!  (1 John 3:8, John 19:30, Isaiah 60:3, Luke 8:17)

2.  My nation was made by God, belongs to God, will know God, and will serve God!  (Psalm 24:1-2, John 1:3, Deuteronomy 20:23-24)

3.  God is for my nation and with my nation.  He is well able to heal the land and bring us fully back to Him!  (2 Chronicles 7:14, Romans 5:8, Psalm 86:15, Zephaniah 3:17)

4.  The church will arise in Truth and Love, awakening to our power as His dominion stewards in the land.  We will take up our place of impact; ignited by God’s presence, power and personality!  (Isaiah 60:1-3, Isaiah 61:1-4, Job 29:17)

5.  May we receive an infusion of grace and faith to believe, receive, and see made manifest the full greatness of I AM in our lives … now!  (Ephesians 1:17-19, 1 Thessalonians 5:24, Hebrews 13:20-21).

                                                                           RECEIVE GOD'S WIND IN 2022!

God’s wind brings life. God’s wind often comes as breath to bring new life. The Living GOD has breathed His life into us (Genesis 2:7, Job 33:4) and calls us to release His lifegiving Spirit to others – even to cities and nations. Let the Lord breathe fresh life into every area that feels dead and lifeless. Call to His wind, like Ezekiel, to breathe into your “dry bones” that they might live (Ezekiel 37:1-14). Ask the Holy Spirit to breathe into stagnant desires, moving them into faith-filled promises. Let GOD breathe life into all that He wishes to resurrect and restore. He wants to breathe fresh life into your health, finances, relationships, and all your mountains of influence.

God’s wind brings momentum. Like a sailboat, you have capacity to harness the wind of the Spirit to move you into your accelerated destiny. When you are moving with and not against the wind, there is no striving. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you where He is leading in each situation of your life, so you can position yourself in Him and in the wind.  As you rest in that place, you will be filled with fresh grace for supernatural ease and increase (Job 29:6, Matthew 11:28-30).

God’s wind brings hope.  When Ezekiel saw the valley of dry bones, He was instructed to call forth the four winds to breathe life, because the house of Israel had lost hope (Ezekiel 37:11). The Lord explained that when His breath comes truth will be revealed, people will come out of their graves, and hope will arise, as they will be brought back into their promised land (Ezekiel 37:12-14). Ask for the Lord to do the impossible in your life and in your spheres of influence (Matthew 19:26).  Let hope arise, as He shows Himself true. Receive your Hope of Glory (Colossians 1:27). 

God’s wind bring refreshing. One of the beautiful things about the wind is the refreshing it brings when it blows. Let His refreshing wind blow over you and into each area of your life. Let the wind bring the rain to wash you free from your weariness (Psalm 68:9). He wants to refresh you with new waves of His love (Song of Solomon 2:5). Now Receive and be filled!

God’s wind brings redirection. When the wind blows, especially a strong wind, it brings natural change in the direction of that which is blown upon. It lifts up, sifts, reorders, and even turns around what is in its path. Ask the Holy Spirit to blow upon you to remove the dross. Let Him sweep away that which is in and around you that is not of GOD, (Isaiah 30:28, Hebrews 12:27). We can also ask His wind to blow upon nations and cities to remove the dross in the midst (Ezekiel 22:18-22).

God’s wind brings empowerment. The Spirit of Might is available to give you strength and power (Isaiah 11:2). As you wait upon Him, expect new strength and endurance. It is in this place that you will truly mount up with wings like eagles, soaring to new heights, where you will run and not grow weary and walk and not grow faint. Be strengthened with power (Ephesians 3:16), as you rise on the wind soaring into greater levels of His victory.

God’s wind brings His presence. As the winds blow, His cloud comes into view! God is in the cloud (Job 37:15-16, Job 22:14, Job 37:11, Numbers 16:42, Exodus 16:10). As you seek His glory and presence to come into your life and circumstances, know that His righteousness and justice will align everything into His ways (Psalm 97:2, Nahum 1:3, Isaiah 55:8). Ask for His glory to flood your life to bring Kingdom order. Behold His majesty and mystery, as new levels of awe and wonder fill your heart and mind. It is here, where God’s authority is established, that heaven will come to earth.

God’s wind brings faith.  In situations of accelerated wind, whirlwinds and storms ensue. When the winds push against “the boat” it will force us into greater levels of faith to produce miracles. Like Peter, many will be called out into the impossible (Matthew 14:22-23). Pray for your situations of challenge to be turned into courageous times of activated faith, where you move out of the ordinary and into the supernatural ways of God. Ask for courage when the winds blow against you to trust in Him. God will work all things for good (Romans 8:28).

Stand Your Ground in 2022

We are experiencing tumultuous times. Times that lead to fear, anxiety, and uncertainty! It seems that every day I overhear, or I'm a part of, a conversation where someone says, "I don’t know what’s going to happen." Or another familiar statement is, "What are we going to do?"

Nobody is able to change what has already happened, but we certainly don't have to allow those changes to change us! Others may be swayed and allow unwelcome change to affect them, but that doesn’t mean that we should.

In Joshua 24:15 we find Joshua speaking to the Israelites, he says:

"And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

Where do you stand? Who do you serve? If you’re satisfied with where you stand, THEN STAND YOUR GROUND IN 2022!

Psalm 34:1-3“I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.”

Several times, people ask this very question which implies that God has either abandoned them or that, He no longer cares. In challenging situations they ask, ‘God why me’? In depressing times they ask’ God why me’? But never do these same people  ask ‘God, Why me‘? when they are enjoying success and abounding in blessings..

But challenges and trials confront us all at some point in life. It is only by the mercies of God that we are not consumed in them, for God’s love for us is new each passing day. Bearing this in mind, during overwhelming times, God expects us to understand that; “it is not of him that wills, nor of Him that runs, but of God that shows mercy” – Romans 9:16

Have you ever asked ‘God why me’? – For making you see a new day. Have you asked Him, ‘God why me’? – that Jesus shed His blood to redeem you from the bondage of Satan. Have you asked God why me?, that you are not in prison (many people are there without even committing any crime) Have you asked ‘God why me’? – for healing you of illnesses that killed other people. Have you asked ‘God why me’? – For rescuing you from disasters that consumed many other people. Have you asked ‘God why me’? That you can see with your eyes, breath normally without a life-support, you are mentally healthy, you can eat normal food, you have access to clean drinkable water, etc. Many people dream of what you have, but, can’t possess them.

If you can begin to ask, ‘God why me’? in a positive manner, that is, remembering and acknowledging God’s goodness, it will amaze you what God did, does and is doing in your life. For once, ignore whatever it is that is keeping you awake through the night and start celebrating the faithfulness of God in and all around you. 

Now think twice before you say GOD WHY ME?

1. In Genesis 3, we are told that humanity brought suffering into the world by rejecting God’s authority. As our just and good Father, God wants to protect us. But when we choose to sin, He honors the free will He graciously gives us. He may allow us to experience the consequences of our actions.

He does so not to rub our noses in our suffering, but to show us why living to His standard is good for us. And here’s the real good news: each time we repent, God is always faithful to dust us off and forgive us. As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us! God doesn’t hold grudges; we get a fresh start every time. That alone should demonstrate the depth of love and grace God has for us.

2. Sometimes we experience suffering not because we have sinned, but because we need to grow. Suffering is the classroom where deep growth can happen, if we buckle down and become good students. God wants us to mature, to consistently demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit: kindness, goodness, patience, love, joy, hope, self-control, etc. Learning to play nice with messy, self-absorbed people will require numerous trips to this classroom.

Remember that God isn’t focused on our perfection, but our improvement. He’s after committed hearts that quickly default to repentance and obedience. We can take joy in seeing our growth, knowing it pleases Him!

3. Sometimes we suffer because of the wrong choices — the free will — of others. Yet the Bible gives us this hope: that what others mean for evil, God will work out for our good. Remember what Joseph said to his brothers, after seeing them cower before him as the second-in-command of Egypt? “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” 

Note that God was able to move Joseph from lowly slave to Pharaoh’s trusted advisor because Joesph held firm to his trust that God had a purpose for his years of suffering. Joseph’s attitude brought God glory. And the various skills and maturity that Joseph built up over the years as a slave and prisoner made him into the strong, resourceful man that the world would desperately need when the famine hit.

Don’t assume that because you’re suffering that God does not care. Watch to see how He shows up. Watch to see your own growth. Watch to see how, like Joseph, you become the person God can use for big assignments! When we look at suffering in that perspective, we can view it as painful, but productive. 

God loves us unconditionally. So we can trust that whatever we’re going through, He is with us. But recognize this: if you continually question God’s goodness when you experience suffering, it might be because you don’t yet fully believe that God loves you.

Friends, without this trust as your firm foundation, your faith will always wobble. You will waste a lot of time not trusting God. And you just might miss out on seeing how He orchestrates your periods of difficulty and suffering to produce good and reflect His power and glory. Trust God!

I pray this answers SUFFERING WHY?

If we expect God to speak to us then we’ll probably hear him. If we don’t, then we probably won’t.

Now, I realize that’s quite a bold statement, but I observe the reality of it frequently, both in my own life and in my Church. Expectancy is such a vital component of hearing God’s voice and if we’re going to operate in prophetic gifts we need to have a well-developed sense of expectation that God is going to do something and say something today.

Expectancy goes hand in hand with Paul’s exhortation in 1 Corinthians 14:1 to eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy. If we’re going to pursue these wonderful gifts we need to first of all desire them and then be expectant of the Spirit’s generosity and faithfulness in giving them to us.

Expectancy comes from knowing to a greater and greater degree the truth of who God is – relentlessly good and amazingly generous – and the truth of who we are – beloved children, filled with the very Spirit of truth and revelation. God is our perfect heavenly Father who delights to speak to his children; he wants us to hear his voice. An expectant mindset is nurtured as we root ourselves in the truth of our covenant identity and the kingdom purposes for which God has called us. Life in the Spirit means every moment of every day is pregnant with possibilities.

In order to grow our expectancy we need to recognise the things that can thwart and frustrate it: disappointment and fear of failure being two of the usual suspects. We have to persevere in our pursuit of God’s voice. Developing expectancy is a daily choice and an attitude to cultivate. Having a mindset of expectancy means that we have developed a particular way of thinking: “I’m a child of God; of course he’s going to speak to me, and he’s going to use me to be a channel of blessing for others. 

Each one of us needs to be growing our expectancy as individuals, but we also need to be developing a culture of expectancy in our churches. A healthy, mature prophetic culture is one in which people are excited and expectant that whenever we gather together God is present and active in our midst and that the Spirit of Revelation might just show up with some incredible truth to share with us: a community that expects to hear God with a corporate attitude of expectancy. Too often the reason we’re not seeing the kingdom of God break out in our midst with signs and wonders is because we’re not actually expecting God to do very much.

Expectancy flows from the presence of God and a renewed mind: it’s first and foremost an internal process, where we shape our way of thinking. But there is also an external process, a practical aspect of cultivating expectancy, where we intentionally create space to hear God and create opportunities to use the gift of prophecy. It’s often as simple as making room to listen to God, actively seeking his revelation together. Whenever we’re gathered we can get in the habit of saying, “Let’s just wait on the Lord for a few minutes…” 

We can practice expectancy by starting every day in joyful anticipation of an encounter with God’s heart and his voice. And by asking him about who we might meet and how he wants to bless them. Let’s believe the words of Jesus in Matthew 7:11

How much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

Let me start off by defining UNVEILING - Unveiling; disclosure; uncovering; exposure; when something is made known that was previously secret or hidden

This is how dictionaries tend to define the word ‘revelation’. When I think about the word, I see it as describing the essence of communication between God and man. Revelation is the unveiling of God’s truth to us, the point at which the vastness of God’s thoughts touch our limited human consciousness.

When we stop and think about it, it is extraordinary that we might have any kind of access to the mind of Almighty God. As he declares in Isaiah 55:9,

“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways,  and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

Yet despite the huge gulf between the mind of the Creator and the human mind, the Bible makes it clear that God readily chooses to communicate with people and unveil his thoughts to us. In fact revelation is inherent to the very nature of God. It’s not just through the written words of scripture that this happens. Throughout the biblical narrative God speaks to people: through creation, through angels and other supernatural experiences, but primarily through his voice.

We know that all creation bears testimony to God and speaks of his majesty, but we can also understand revelation as connection points between the physical world and the supernatural kingdom of God: points in space and time where we get glimpses of the realm of glory. So when we receive revelation from God it’s as if the curtains draw back for a few moments and we get to gaze through a window onto the greater and eternal reality.

God is very good, and it is his good intention that his people have access to his heart, mind and will. We also know that this side of glory there are limitations to what we can perceive: it will be ‘in part,’ like ‘a reflection as in a mirror,’ as Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 13:9 and 12. But we need never settle for silence. He will never be completely hidden from us.

Let me start with this first, if you “truly” know Christ as your personal Savior, you are safe in His hands (John 10:27-33).  All things will truly work out for your good, no matter how difficult life may be.  As we move closer to His return (Romans 8:28-39), look up the passages and be blessed.


The storm clouds are gathering over nations, especially Israel and America.

A review of Matthew 24 and 25,  presents many clear signs of the times.  Many people {individually} today, both saved and unsaved appear to be interested in world events and the Biblical teaching of Christ’s soon return.  The strange thing is the quietness found in most pulpits today about this enormously, exciting Biblical truth.  Pulpits are not warning the people of II Corinthians 5:10.  Even though the mandate for preachers is to preach the “whole” counsel of God, many pastors are fearful that folks will leave the church if they follow God’s direction for their ministry.(see Ephesians 4:11-12; II Peter 1:20-21; Matthew 5:18; II Timothy 3:16-17 and II Timothy 4:1-5)

So why do folks not realize they are supposed to bring glory and pleasure to God and not themselves. (Isaiah 43:7; Revelation 4:11)

The reality is that the truth has not been explained to them.  Why do they not realize that they must give an account to Christ for their lifestyle.  Simple, they haven’t been told.  Why are Christians not concerned over living a pleasure oriented lifestyle and not concerned about carry out God’s commands. (like John 13:34-35; Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Galatians 6:1, etc.)

Again, it’s pretty simple, “They have not been told the Biblical truth”.  Or, if they have been told, they don’t believe it.  Or, they like their sinful lifestyle more than obedience to the One who purchased them from the slave market of sin.

One of the vital signs of the end times is “apostasy“{a withdrawal from Biblical truth}.

Satan has blinded the eyes of many who profess to believe in Christ.  He (Satan) is a liar and a deceiver and many follow the doctrines of demons rather than Biblical truth.(Leviticus 17:7; Psalms 106:37; I Corinthians 10:20-21; I Timothy 4:1; Revelation 13:4)

 Worship of demonic doctrine is forbidden by God. (Leviticus 17:7; Zechariah 13:2; Revelation 9:20)  What is needed today?  Christians need to not blindly follow everything they hear but be like the people at Berea and search the Scriptures daily to “find out whether these were so”. (Acts 17:11)

Christians need to be concerned because our Lord warned in Matthew 24:12, that apostasy would abound in the latter days.

The Apostle Paul warned of apostasy in the latter days. (II Thessalonians 2:3 and again in I Timothy 4:1-3; cf Jude 3-19)

Example, if one is attending a church that agrees with abortion, homosexuality, same sex marriage, a need not to study the Bible, etc., then there is a responsibility to withdraw and attend where they can be taught truth.  It is vital to be able to appear before Christ and not be ashamed. (II Corinthians 5:10)

JOHN 10:7-11

Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers:but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door:by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd:the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

Apostolic Alignment for Kingdom Advancement

Apostolic Alignment for Kingdom Advancement:

 Is the worldwide activation of the Holy Spirit being released in the Body of Christ resulting in the restoration (re-ordering) of all things according to Acts 3:19-21

Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations” NKJV
This is an Apostolic Commission!!
Evangelists make believers/converts – Apostles make disciples. 
Establish Churches
Apostolic People require Apostolic Churches where they will be equipped and released for the work of the ministry through:
Doctrine- Acts 2:42 “…they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship,”
Preaching- Inspiration through exhortation, proclamation and demonstration.  Mark 16:15 “And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature,”
Teaching- Inspiration through edification (building up).  Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,” 
Treaching - (combination of teaching & preaching)
Matthew 4:23 “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and
healing (demonstration) all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people,”
Establish Biblical Order/Government
Restore five-fold (government) ministry to oversee and maintain the order of God, which is represented through theocracy and not democracy.
Theocracy -God controlled, God centered, God ruled.
Democracy- People controlled, People centered, People ruled. 1 Corinthians 12:28; Ephesians 4:11-16; Titus 1:5
Establish “Fathering Ministries/Relationship”
1 Corinthians 4:15 “For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet [have ye] not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.”

Fathers and overseers are committed to establishing and developing growing relationship.
Some Fatherly Responsibilities: 
1. Training and Discipline - Exodus 18:13-26; Hebrews 12:5-10; Colossians 1:28
2.  Reproduce - John 15:16

3.. Releasing - Acts11: 21-22; Acts13:3-4

4.. Impartation - 2 Timothy 1:6
5. Provision

Kingdom Builders Christian Ministries A Spiritually Militant Church

In the process of apostolic maturing of the Church there is an emerging, spiritually militant boldness on all fronts of Church life. Not with guns and bombs like deluded terrorists, but spiritual weapons like strategic prayer, intercession, preaching, teaching and praise & worship. Music (SHOFAR & PRAISE/WORSHIP) has been, and is increasingly setting this tone of spiritual militancy.  Now it is time for the prophetic to take its true mature place alongside the apostolic gifts and anointing. To bring structure both spiritual and natural to facilitate what the Lord is doing in the Church - to clear the rubble from the spiritual gaps in the wall of the House of the Lord (Nehemiah 4:10), and to build apostolic churches. To plant churches powerfully, in spiritually governing strength, with five-fold ministry teams. Apostolic church bases that will actually affect and change whole cities, nations, and even governments.

We have seen this in part happening in KBCM but there are more wonderful days ahead of all of us as we press on to the high calling of Christ JESUS in our lives. Singers, musicians, Preachers, Teachers, THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY in the realm of the creative arts will also need to carry apostolic wisdom in the nurturing and releasing of these gifts in the MARKETPLACE. It is important we prepare - because we will not handle the onslaught of spiritual wickedness that will inevitably come against the rising army of the Church. It is a global army because there is a global fight! A fight against the ultimate global terrorist - the devil! 

Everyone needs to submit under GOD's government, no one is exempt, Kingdom Builders Christian Ministries definitely is a place for anyone who is without a Church home and wants to grow in the LORD.

Everyone – Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, Teachers and laypersons, are required to submit to a Pastor. This is God’s order of government. The Pastor is the head of the local Church and everyone is to be a part of a local Church somewhere. (Ephesians 4:11-14) 

What I am saying is that everyone, even the other Ministry offices, should have a Pastor. There are no exceptions to this. The most effective Five-fold Ministers in the Earth have Pastors whom they can call upon.

Everyone will ultimately give account for how they treated their Pastors. 2Corinthians 5:10)

Sincerely from Apostle L.R. Gooden Jr.

A quick teaching on the theme for 2015 for KBCM by Apostle L.R.Gooden Jr.



EPH. 4:12. For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

These ministry gifts (EPH 4:11) are to equip the saints, and then the saints are to do the work of the ministry. The Amplified Bible translates this verse as "His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ's body (the church)."

It is a mistake to place the burden of ministry on what we call "the clergy." Full-time ministers are to minister the Word to the saints, but the saints are to go out and reach the lost and carry the bulk of the ministry within the church. Shepherds don't have sheep; they tend the sheep, and the sheep should reproduce.

It has been a big mistake to "hire" ministers to do what the individual members of the church are supposed to do. Apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers are simply leaders who equip the saints so that they can be successful in the ministries God has given them.

In EPH 4:12 the word "for" can mean because of, as a result of, since, or it can mean so as to obtain. It is the latter definition that is meant here. The apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers of EPH 4:11 minister "so as to obtain" the saints being equipped so that they can do the work of the ministry, which in turn obtains the edifying of the body of Christ. The clergy doesn't do all these things. They start the process through leadership, and the body edifies itself in love (EPH 4:16).

The Greek word that was translated "perfecting" here is "KATARTISMOS," and it means "a fitting or preparing fully" (Vine's Expository Dictionary). It does not denote the absence of all flaws. The Lord gave the gifted ministers listed in EPH 4:11 to help fully prepare the saints so that they could do the work of the ministry.

Remember it takes a Disciple (a disciplined learner) not a complainer, not a critic, not a murmurer, not a know it all, but a DISCIPLE.  It's time for the Church to line-up, straighten-up and fall in place with true GOD ordained leadership.  Amen.
