|Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. (John 17:20-23 KJV)|
WE BELIEVE THE LORD HAS
USED TO BIRTH THIS MINISTRY
YOU ARE REQUIRED TO LOVE THE WHOLE BODY OF CHRIST
JESUS DID NOT START A DENOMINATION
YOU HAVE A PURPOSE
(Ephesians 2:10) For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
YOU HAVE BEEN CALLED TO BE LIGHT AND SALT,
TO TELL THE WORLD OF THE TRUE LOVE OF A HOLY GOD
(Ezekiel 33:1-20) And the word of the Lord came to me saying,  "Son of man, speak to the sons of your people, and say to them, 'If I bring a sword upon a land, and the people of the land take one man from among them and make him their watchman;  and he sees the sword coming upon the land, and he blows on the trumpet and warns the people,  then he who hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, and a sword comes and takes him away, his blood will be on his own head.  'He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood will be on himself. But had he taken warning, he would have delivered his life.  'But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and a sword comes and takes a person from them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require from the watchman's hand.'
 "Now as for you, son of man, I have appointed you a watchman for the house of Israel; so you will hear a message from My mouth, and give them warning from Me.  "When I say to the wicked, 'O wicked man, you shall surely die,' and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require from your hand.  "But if you on your part warn a wicked man to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, he will die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your life.
 "Now as for you, son of man, say to the house of Israel, 'Thus you have spoken, saying, "Surely our transgressions and our sins are upon us, and we are rotting away in them; how then can we survive?" '  "Say to them, 'As I live!' declares the Lord God, 'I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways! Why then will you die, O house of Israel?'  "And you, son of man, say to your fellow citizens, 'The righteousness of a righteous man will not deliver him in the day of his transgression, and as for the wickedness of the wicked, he will not stumble because of it in the day when he turns from his wickedness; whereas a righteous man will not be able to live by his righteousness on the day when he commits sin.'  "When I say to the righteous he will surely live, and he so trusts in his righteousness that he commits iniquity, none of his righteous deeds will be remembered; but in that same iniquity of his which he has committed he will die.  "But when I say to the wicked, 'You will surely die,' and he turns from his sin and practices justice and righteousness,  if a wicked man restores a pledge, pays back what he has taken by robbery, walks by the statutes which ensure life without committing iniquity, he will surely live; he shall not die.  "None of his sins that he has committed will be remembered against him. He has practiced justice and righteousness; he will surely live.
 "Yet your fellow citizens say, 'The way of the Lord is not right,' when it is their own way that is not right.  "When the righteous turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, then he shall die in it.  "But when the wicked turns from his wickedness and practices justice and righteousness, he will live by them.  "Yet you say, 'The way of the Lord is not right.' O house of Israel, I will judge each of you according to his ways."
(Jeremiah 1:4-9)  Now the word of the Lord came to me saying,  "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations."  Then I said, "Alas, Lord God! Behold, I do not know how to speak, Because I am a youth." 7] But the Lord said to me, "Do not say, 'I am a youth,' Because everywhere I send you, you shall go, and all that I command you, you shall speak.
YOU HAVE BEEN SET APART HE HAS EQUIPPED YOU
YOU ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE
 "Do not be afraid of them, For I am with you to deliver you," declares the Lord.
 Then the Lord stretched out His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me, "Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.
TELL THOSE WHO CALL THEMSELVES BY MY NAME:
YOU HAVE DONE EVIL IN MY SIGHT OBEY MY VOICE AND I WILL BE YOUR GOD, AND YOU WILL BE MY PEOPLE
The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,  "Stand in the gate of the Lord's house and proclaim there this word, and say, 'Hear the word of the Lord, all you of Judah, who enter by these gates to worship the Lord!' "  Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, "Amend your ways and your deeds, and I will let you dwell in this place.  "Do not trust in deceptive words, saying, 'This is the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord.'  "For if you truly amend your ways and your deeds, if you truly practice justice between a man and his neighbor,  if you do not oppress the alien, the orphan, or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place, nor walk after other gods to your own ruin,  then I will let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever.
 "Behold, you are trusting in deceptive words to no avail.  "Will you steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and offer sacrifices to Baal, and walk after other gods that you have not known,  then come and stand before Me in this house, which is called by My name, and say, 'We are delivered!'-- that you may do all these abominations?  "Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of robbers in your sight? Behold, I, even I, have seen it," declares the Lord.
 "But go now to My place which was in Shiloh, where I made My name dwell at the first, and see what I did to it because of the wickedness of My people Israel.  "And now, because you have done all these things," declares the Lord, "and I spoke to you, rising up early and speaking, but you did not hear, and I called you but you did not answer,  therefore, I will do to the house which is called by My name, in which you trust, and to the place which I gave you and your fathers, as I did to Shiloh.  "And I will cast you out of My sight, as I have cast out all your brothers, all the offspring of Ephraim.
 "As for you, do not pray for this people, and do not lift up cry or prayer for them, and do not intercede with Me; for I do not hear you.  "Do you not see what they are doing in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?  "The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out libations to other gods in order to spite Me.  "Do they spite Me?" declares the Lord. "Is it not themselves they spite, to their own shame?"  Therefore thus says the Lord God, "Behold, My anger and My wrath will be poured out on this place, on man and on beast and on the trees of the field and on the fruit of the ground; and it will burn and not be quenched."
 Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, "Add your burnt offerings to your sacrifices and eat flesh.  "For I did not speak to your fathers, or command them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings and sacrifices.  "But this is what I commanded them, saying, 'Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you.'  "Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but walked in their own counsels and in the stubbornness of their evil heart, and went backward and not forward.  "Since the day that your fathers came out of the land of Egypt until this day, I have sent you all My servants the prophets, daily rising early and sending them.  "Yet they did not listen to Me or incline their ear, but stiffened their neck; they did evil more than their fathers.
 "And you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not listen to you; and you shall call to them, but they will not answer you.  "And you shall say to them, 'This is the nation that did not obey the voice of the Lord their God or accept correction; truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth.
 'Cut off your hair and cast it away, And take up a lamentation on the bare heights; For the Lord has rejected and forsaken the generation of His wrath.'
 "For the sons of Judah have done that which is evil in My sight," declares the Lord, "they have set their detestable things in the house which is called by My name, to defile it.  "And they have built the high places of Topheth, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, which I did not command, and it did not come into My mind.  "Therefore, behold, days are coming," declares the Lord, "when it will no more be called Topheth, or the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of the Slaughter; for they will bury in Topheth because there is no other place.  "And the dead bodies of this people will be food for the birds of the sky, and for the beasts of the earth; and no one will frighten them away.  "Then I will make to cease from the cities of Judah and from the streets of Jerusalem the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride; for the land will become a ruin.
CALL MY PEOPLE TO REPENTANCE
"And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write:
The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this:  'I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I would that you were cold or hot.  'So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.  'Because you say, "I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing," and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked,  I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire, that you may become rich, and white garments, that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see.  'Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; be zealous therefore, and repent.  'Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he with Me.  'He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
(Psalm 91:1-16) He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say to the Lord, "My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!"  For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper, And from the deadly pestilence.  He will cover you with His pinions, And under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
HE WILL PROTECT YOU HE WILL SUSTAIN YOU
YOU CAN SPEAK WITH HIS AUTHORITY
 You will not be afraid of the terror by night, Or of the arrow that flies by day;  Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, Or of the destruction that lays waste at .  A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not approach you.  You will only look on with your eyes, And see the recompense of the wicked.  For you have made the Lord, my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place.  No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague come near your tent.  For He will give His angels charge concerning you, To guard you in all your ways.  They will bear you up in their hands, Lest you strike your foot against a stone.  You will tread upon the lion and cobra, The young lion and the serpent you will trample down.
 "Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.  "He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him, and honor him.  "With a long life I will satisfy him, And let him behold My salvation."
