Releasing Kings for Ministry in the Marketplace

Join us In Spokane

Roy LeTourneau will be one of the featured speakers at our conference in Spokane right after Christmas.  Harold will also be ministering – these my favorite people.  We plan to have a “party” releasing Kings.  Your invited and here’s “another reason” why I believe this conference will be spiritual milestone!

A Reformation of Kings

The Lord put a word in my heart over the last week – “Reformation”.  It kept coming up in conversation as hearts search for ways to express the significance of their liberation.  Revolution doesn’t quite fit – we’re not throwing off the tyranny of a misguided church, we’re actually bringing her evangelism and building a new wing (maybe literally).  Pastors are welcoming this new venue to equip the saints as Kings.  The protestant reformation was the spiritual awaking that started under Luther’s guidance.  It spilled over into an intellectual renaissance.  Both were rooted in a personal re-visitation the truths of scripture in their native languages and in the original languages.

When we’re through liberating 80% of Christianity and we successfully release their ministries in the marketplace, History will see the significance of the Kingdom impact on our cultures and call it a “Reformation.”  We may call it a “jail-break,” an “army,” or “revival”… but reformation isn’t a bad way to think about the release of Kings.  Let’s contrast Luther with the present move.

1.  The Bible was given to the masses (instead of Mass in Latin)

Luther and the Protestant Reformers read the Bible and understood that personal salvation was by grace.  Jesus was known as Savior and Lord and men were understood to be his servants (Rom 3:23)

The Kingly Reformation of today is headquartered in John 10:10.  We understand that Jesus is also the King of Kings and we are more than conquerors seated at his right hand.

I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10 KJV

2. A Theological Shift

Reformations are under girded by a new revelation, or emphasis, in scripture.  The Reformers emphasized the solution of the cross for personal sin… the death and burial of Christ as atonement for our sin.

The Kingly reformation of today adds an emphasis to the resurrection of Christ.  Jesus is seen as the giver of life.  Instead of seeing him way up in heaven, we see ourselves with him, conversing with Him, co-laboring with Him to expand the Kingdom.  In addition to knowing personal salvation, we also know the savior personally.

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.  John 15:15

3. The Priesthood of the Believer

The Protestant Reformers gave us the revelation that individuals personally have direct access to God and that the priestly ministry was not a conduit for salvation.

The Kingly Reformation of today gives us the revelation that individuals personally have access to “ministry” and that it is not the sole function of the priesthood.  God is “ordaining” Kings for ministry in the marketplace.  It is the jailbreak that will allow the release of the saints equipped for the “work of ministry.”  We can fulfill the great commission to make disciples of all nations – with “all” of the saints.

So the word of God spread. The number of disciples in Jerusalem increased rapidly, and a large number of priests became obedient to the faith. Acts 6:7

But the word of God continued to increase and spread. Acts 12:24

In this way the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power.   Acts 19:20

See you in Spokane

Blessings,

John & Harold

Friends Tell Friends

Harold and I have both been hesitant to “market” this book… sounds self-serving.  Here’s the “grassroots” reality.  God has given us a great tool to communicate a message that sets people free in an amazing, contagious, life-changing way.  If you haven’t read it – get it.  If you have read it – give it.

We’ve gotten a ton of positive feedback on the newsletter too… get it, give it.  Reloading Seniors was powerful.  Pass the link on.
