ARCI – 2019 Nov 17: Wilderness experience & the 4th Man in the fire. Our call in relation to the Apostolic / Prophetic foundation.

ARCI – 17 Nov 2019

Sunday notes…
Sister Juliette
  • Work out my wilderness experience with joy and thanksgiving
  • The plans of God for me are always good & not for bad, to give me a future & a hope…Jeremiah 29:11
  • Always remember, when going through the valley of the shadow of death
  •  – God is always with me
  • – His rod & staff are there to guide & protect me.
  •  – there is the 4th Man in the fire
  • It’s not always about me, but about what God wants to do in other people’s lives through me.
  • Gal. 6 verse 9 says:
  • ….”And let us not be weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap if we faint not.
We had an amazing worship experience
  • I have a better appreciation for those that can minister the Gospel through praise & worship
  • Where the songs are used for teaching truth, rebuking error, correcting faults and giving instructions for righteous living…to qualify and equip the servant of God for every good work… 2 Timothy 3:16-17
ARCI is a House with an Elijah anointing >> being elevated international
  • Prophet from Congo >> another confirmation
  • >> Church & Apostle being elevated to the next level
  • Are the Elisha’s ready for the double portion of anointing?
  • >> or are we the observers from the sidelines?
Spirit of the Lord seems to be emphasizing >> elevation & promotion
  • A prophetic word is the testimony of Jesus 
  • >> The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy… Revelation 19:10
  • He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches… Revelation 2:29
  • A matter is established by 2-3 witnesses…2 Corinthians 13:1
As prophet Don said in one of the midweek services
  • & sister Juliette suggested last week during the 1st service
  • Let us yield ourselves to God & take up our positions in ministry
  • Be able to discern the times and the seasons
  • >> the sons of Issachar >> understood the times & knew what Israel should do…1 Chronicles 12:32
  • Not potentially miss our day of visitation >> man at the pool of Bethesda >> John 5
  • >> missed the stirring of the waters for 38 years
  • >> when Jesus came to heal him, he was still giving excuses
  • >> For each of us to arise, take up our bed and walk in our divine destiny
Prepare ourselves as we are about to close the year
  • Finish the 1st quarter of the Hebrew calendar >> Year of the Ox >> Service
>> Build our faith with guidance on finding our place  and moving into our callings in the Body of Christ
>>Based on the Word of God >> Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God…Romans 10:17
  • Apologies if it takes a minute or  2 more >> because of scripture

>> Advantage of an Apostolic – Prophetic house

  • A Church is built on the foundation of Apostles & Prophets with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone … Ephesians 2:20
  • The insight into the mystery of Christ or the Good News of the Gospel is made known by the Spirit of God through His Holy Apostles & Prophets…Ephesians 3:2-6
For example, Peter in Matthew 16:13-19
  • Got a revelation form the Father that Jesus is the Christ, Son of the living God
  • And on that revelation of Christ, Christ Himself will build His Church
  • …and because it is Christ building His Church, the gates of hell shall not prevail against it
  • The keys of the kingdom of heaven are given…
  • …for whatever is bound & loosed on earth is also  bound and loosed in heaven
That is an Apostolic – Prophetic house like ARCI
Isaiah 28:16 (BSB)
  • So this is what the Lord GOD says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; the one who believes will never be shaken.
The Church Structure or Government >> Ecclesia >> Ephesians 4:11-13
  • Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastors, Teachers
  • to equip the saints for works of ministry, to build up the body of Christ
  • For us to mature to the full and complete standard of Christ.
  • …through reaching unity of faith and in the knowledge of Christ
>> 1 Corinthians 12:27 – 28
  • Now you are the body of Christ, and each of you is a member of it.
  • And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, and those with gifts of healing, helping, administration, and various tongues.
Matthew 7 >> Gives a summary on obedience to the call of God
  • Ask, Seek & Knock >> it shall be given, found & opened >> vs 7 & 8
  • Encouraged to enter the narrow gate that leads to life that few find >> vs 13 & 14
  • We shall be known by our fruits, from a good tree that bears good fruit
  • With every tree that does not bear good fruit is to be cut down and thrown into the fire
  • For not everyone who calls >> Lord Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven
  • … but those who do the will of the Father
  • Obedience to the Word of God for my life is like building my house on a rock that raging rains, winds & torrents will not prevail against
  • >> Do I know the will of the Father for my life?
  • >> Am I cultivating the seed & producing the fruit from the gift that He put inside me?
  • >> Am I in danger of being cut down and thrown into the fire?
 >>JOHN 15:8 (NASB)
“My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples….
1 Peter 2:1-10 >> A good summary of all the above
  • Come to Christ as living stones to be used to build up the Body of Christ
Ephesians 3:14-21 >> A good prayer on the same
  • For God to enlighten us and empower us to manifest the fullness of Himself within us

Way forward

  • Seek first the kingdom and His righteousness & all other things shall be added … Matthew 6:33
  • >> Know and comply with our callings >> will, purpose and plans of God for our lives
  • Honor the anointing in the house
  • >> Honor or receive the prophet or the righteous and receive their reward …Matthew 10:41
  • Know & Understand the Terms & Rewards of service >>
  • e.g. Matthew 10:37-42 >> Taking up our cross and following Christ
  • The story of the Rich Young Ruler >>Luke 18 or Mark 10
  • >> Those who leave everything and follow Christ will receive many times more in this age and in the age to come eternal life
  • >> And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force….Matthew 11:12
  • ….so be prepared and arm yourself for battle >> full armor of God >> Ephesians 6:10-18
The foundations we set will determine the elevation we can reach. 
>> Healing & Deliverance next week
>> Seminar & Conference in December
  • Encourage Apostle to invite the “Mulika Mwizi”  forensic prophets
  • … Mentors / specialists under the ministry gifts
  • … to expose and give us the idea of their experiences in the different callings
  • >> For the light of God to expose any lingering darkness in us…
  • >> To shine the Lamp & Light of God unto our feet and paths …
  • …so that we are indeed walking in the path of our divine destiny
So ..
  • We literally don’t turn over the year the same way we started
  • We are not perishing or stagnant because of lack of knowledge
Opportunities for us to allow God to
  • … remove what is not His in us
  • And put back >> restore and heal us
  • >> So that we reflect His image and likeness from glory to glory
  • >> with power & authority to do even greater things that Jesus did…John 14:12
  • Knowing our calling
  • Forming groups to encourage one another in ministry and callings
  • E.g. Teachers >> start writing and sharing their notes on bible study online
  • Evangelist >> forming groups with healers & miracle workers to go out to witness to communities
We are called to be salt & light of the world >> Matthew 5
  • For the world to taste and see that the Lord is good in us and through us …Psalm 34:8
  • As creation eagerly awaits the manifestation of the sons of God… Romans 8:19
