"We are rejoicing
to be Poured Out
For The Nations!"
Dear Poured Out Followers of Messiah Jesus,
The Book of Colossians is a great place to learn more about our Savior Jesus and who we are in Him! It is so powerful and gives us a great way forward in an increasingly dark world. Paul is expressing his happiness at the news update on the growing faith of the Colossians.
"For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy..." (Colossians 1:9-11)
Being filled with the knowledge of the will of the Lord will displace thoughts of worldly things. Like a drinking glass filled with muddy water that is immersed in a pool of crystal clear water-so is the one who is filled with the knowledge of the will of God! Knowing and living in the will of the Lord goes hand in hand with having wisdom and understanding from Him. Those with understanding are able to apply information to every day living-that is wisdom-applying information rightly.
This is the foundation for empowering one to walk out their faith (live a life) as an authentic witness to the resurrected Savior Jesus! Living a life fully pleasing to Him and bringing forth fruit that will remain is a by-product of such faith. This is also the way we grow closer to our Heavenly Father. Listen to a powerful Psalm that says it very well:
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper. (Psalm 1:3)
So many lives will be shipwrecked in these trying times. But, those who believe and live this way in Messiah Jesus will be strong in the Lord and the power of His might! He will give us strength to patiently endure and-we will do so with great joy! Here are some summary points to help:
The Holy Spirit wants the Colossians, and us today, to remember these things:
- We can and should know the will of the Lord for our lives.
- We can and should have eyes to see and ears to hear from the Holy Spirit (wisdom and spiritual understanding).
- These things will help us walk worthy of the Lord.
- As we walk worthy of the Lord we will be fully pleasing to Him!
- We will also be fruitful in every good work and truly get to know our Father in heaven in greater measure!
- We will be strengthened with all might according to His glorious power!
- Not only will we have patience and the ability to bear up under every struggle-but we will do so with JOY!!!
Please meditate on these things and just watch how the Lord works in your life!
Watch Therefore TV!
More are also coming alongside to partner with the prayer and financial needs of the program-Hallelujah-we need all the help our Savior will provide through His people!
Currently, I am teaching through the book of Colossians on the program. The teaching I mention at the start of this letter is a snapshot of what I am sharing. Certainly, Colossians will help us watch and be ready! Additionally, I am going to be teaching important prophetic insights from the Bible as they directly relate to this special generation.
For those praying and partnering with us I have a general, but exciting update:
New opportunities for expansion of Watch Therefore TV are coming in leaps and bounds! I cannot share any more details right now. All I can say is that Abba Father must truly want this message to cover the globe! These new opportunities are far beyond our current capacity-but well within His reach! So, please pray for Abba's Kingdom to come and will to be done on earth as it is in heaven as it relates to Watch Therefore TV!
Africa Ministry Prayer Needs:
Please pray for upcoming opportunities for Nigeria in May and Rwanda and the Congo in September. Truly, if the Lord of the Harvest takes me to these places we should expect many precious souls to be saved and set free! We should also expect many to learn the importance and how to watch therefore and be ready!
We are currently partnering monthly by prayer and financial support with two Kenyan pastors who are helping orphans and widows, preaching the gospel, and making disciples of our Savior Jesus. Please pray for Pastor's Zaphania Makori and James Okenda.
Remember, more than ever, this is the time to be poured out for the faith of others and to watch therefore and be ready!
Yes, and if I am being poured out as a drink offering on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all. (Philippians 2:17)
Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. (Matthew 24:42-44)
