ARCI – 2020 Feb 9: Kingdom Mentality. Injecting Christ / His Word into life. Changing me or my situation? Catch or teach a revelation?

ARCI 9 Feb 2020

Year of Breakthrough & Divine Magnification

What we don’t understand we cannot receive
Let’s not perish for lack of knowledge
Apostle has been trying to change our mindsets
  • Increase our understanding
  • To have a kingdom mentality 
  • To increase the level of our faith to appropriate our divine inheritance in Christ.
  • Because … as a man thinketh so is he. ..Proverbs 23:7
  • … faith comes by hearing &  the hearing the Word of God …Romans 10:17
Let’s declare…
  • God is bigger than my biggest problem,
  • Larger than my greatest enemy
  • Stronger than my greatest challenge 
& at the Name of Jesus,
Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord…Philippians 2:10
  • Put a name to every problem, challenge Or enemy 
  • And demand that it bow to the greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. 
Under the anointing of…
>> I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me
>> being that nothing is impossible for my God…
  • I am an answer to a question, 
  • … A solution to a problem 
  • … An answer to a prayer 
I Am…
  • A David to the Goliath of my generation 
  • A Caleb & Joshua to the mediocrity of my generation 
  • I operate in my divine level in Christ 
  • …as salt & light to the world around me
  • That others may taste and see that the Lord is good…
  • …in me & through me for His Kingdom & for His Glory.
>> Thank God for Apostle & Prophet
  • For the grace, & strength to stamp International into Apostolic Revival Church – International
  • It is not easy thinking and following up to delivering a new baby – ARCI – Zambia
  • It comes with a lot of responsibilities
  • But we run towards, not away from challenges
>> Thank God that ARCI has broken through the International barrier & has been magnified
  • >> Territory has been expanded
  • As ARCI breaks through and magnifies the Word of God in peoples lives
  • Leading by example the theme of the year of
  • >> Year of Divine Breakthrough & Magnification
  • …you looked and saw, you walked by faith & it has manifested
  • >> Sacrifice of praise to the Lord Jesus
  • >> Acknowledge His faithful servants
We are encouraged because we know blessings & anointing flow from the top down
Psalm 133:1-2 (NKJV)
  • A Song of Ascents. Of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity!
  • It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments.
>> It is for us to be in harmony and working in love & unity with what God is doing in ARCI through His anointed & faithful servants
?? While you were away…
Pastor Morris challenged us with the story of Ruth
  • We shouldn’t judge a book by its cover
  • >> despising a situation or a person from what we see only
  • >> but indeed get a revelation of the situation or we may miss our day of visitation
Even if it is a problem ,
  • …As it may be a stepping stone to our next level or breakthrough
  • … See things with our hearts & with discernment, not our eyes
  • … by faith and not by sight
  • Seek The Way to the Truth of Life & life in abundance in Christ in that situation
  • >> Injecting Christ / His Word into every situation that we encounter
  • …as Ruth did and found resurrection power that got into her life to the point that the Author of life Himself, Jesus came out / manifested from her bloodline
Indeed with Ruth or my situation
  • …. for His Name’s sake & His glory
  • >> God may use the weak & foolish things of this world to confound the strong and the wise…1 Corinthians 1:27
  1. … get a revelation of the situation or I may miss my day of visitation
  2. Seek The Way to the Truth of Life & life in abundance in Christ in that situation
>> Ruth had to have a revelation of the anointing (blessing) Naomi carried
>> – a poor widow that lost everything
  • Not many of us would have that grace unless by the spirit of God…
  • >> Someone comes and ask you to borrow 50 – 100 – 500K
  • You will analyse and assess the possibility of payback
Unless by faith and the spirit of God
>> Ruth may have encountered
  • … a Peter like scenario in Matthew 16:17
  • ….Flesh and blood has not revealed this to you but the Father in heaven…Matthew 16:17
  • For greater is He that is in me ( God in me) than he that is in the world..1 John 4:4
  • >> …not only greater than the enemy,
  • … but also there is a greater thing in me that has not manifested yet.
  • >> my seed of greatness, that part of God in me…
>>… ??>> or what God made me to be is greater than what you are seeing currently
  • Greater is He that is still in me than has manifested in the world…
  • Why Gideon was called mighty man of valor
  • … though the physical circumstances didn’t look like it
  • Creation eagerly awaits the manifestation / revelation of the sons of God…Romans 8:19
A seed has all it requires to be great
  • Just needs the right environment
  • It is not always pleasant
  • >#> I shall not  fear operating in my divine potential
  • I am activating the seed of greatness in me
Revelation comes by the Spirit of Truth
  • And He shall lead us into all Truth…John 16:13
  • >> For Ruth to even prophesy, it must have been the Spirit of God >> Ruth 1:16
  • She had to have a revelation of some kind like… for Peter..
  • … “Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God.
  • So indeed as Hebrews 13:2 urges
  • >> don’t neglect to show hospitality to strangers ( or strange situations)
  • >>…. but we should discern as we may be entertaining angels (the key to our breakthrough) without knowing it
>> So like Ruth & Naomi, the man at the pool of Bethesda or Abraham and the 3 visitors that were passing by his tent, Widow of Zarephath
  • May we be able to perceive the moving of the Lord / stirring of the waters in 2020
  • >> from every situation we encounter so that we do not miss our miracle
  • For God Almighty can use or turn any & all situations for my good, so long as I love Him and I am called / aligned / pursuing His purposes…Romans 8:28
  • Believe that the plans of God for me are always good and not for bad, to give me a future and a hope…Jeremiah 29:11
  • May we have the grace & wisdom, strength & courage
  • >> not to ignore and indeed pursue to fulfill divine  prophetic instructions
  • Especially when Apostle, Prophet or Pastor teaches us some things…
  • E.g. God is more interested in changing me than in changing my situation
  • … we may have the unfortunate tendency to ignore or miss all together
  • But getting that revelation alone changes how & what we pray for
  • …so that the changed me can handle / contain the changed situation for me
  • … or …I can handle or contain the blessing that the Lord will pour out on me
  • >> for the blessings of the Lord enriches and adds no sorrow with it …Proverbs 10:22
  • I can receive only what I can perceive
  • >> I can only receive from what I honor …Matthew 10:41
  • Revelation is caught, not taught 
# Prayer
  • Spirit of discernment
  • That can catch revelation
  • + Spirit of wisdom, strength & courage
  • … the how, the ability and the persistence
  • To walk / work out everything revelation into manifestation
  • For the kingdom of God, for the glory of God
  • Indeed
  • .. may we live to see & experience the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living
  • Amen!
