The Airport Ride – Part Five

As we draw this mini-series of “questions on the way to the airport” by a senior leader to a close … Let’s talk about the Sabbath. I asked all the leaders of this particular church if they kept a regular, weekly Sabbath. I defined this Sabbath as a decent quantity of time (not necessarily a whole day) where they focused on their relationship with God, rested, and generally spent downtime … not catching up on laundry, housework, banking, and shopping. So, quality as well as quantity. When I asked for a show of hands as to those who had a regular, weekly Sabbath … not one hand went up.

Here is another reason “life” was not being experienced by the individual leaders as well as why “life” did not flow at the assemblies of this local church.

God has Ten Commandments. And only one starts with the word “remember.” This is because God knew that in the rush of life and ministry we would tend to forget. “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work …For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.” (Exodus 20:8-11)

The Sabbath is an integral part of our intimacy with God. This intimacy and resulting relationship is essential to seeing life released in any and all ministry. And, you determine the level of intimacy you have. You must be intentional about gaining and then maintaining this relationship. You must be focused and not allow things to distract you. Without this, those in ministry are working for God and not with God. Without this there is no “life” being experienced by the disciple or the local church.

So, take the time to establish and maintain a Sabbath. It does not need to be Saturday or Sunday. Paul tells us there are no “holy days” so pick the day that is best for you and slice out a good chunk of it for your personal Sabbath. No Sabbath means you are in sin as you have broken one of the Ten Commandments. The biblical definition of sin is “the transgression of the law” and keeping a Sabbath is part of that moral law known as the Ten Commandments. Time to climb out of sin!

This way you will come to be “rooted and grounded in love” because “God is love.” You will know “the mind of Christ’ (1 Corinthians 2:16); you will know the heart of God the Father (Matthew 5:8); and you will experience His feelings, His focus, His plans and His purpose (John 17:3). This is called intimacy – knowing the God we worship and serve.

When you were born again God gave you the “gift of eternal life” (Romans 6:23b). This gift is defined in John 17:3 as the supernatural ability to deeply, personally, and intimately know God the Father and Jesus, whom He sent.” It is time to unwrap the gift.

It was a great discussion on the way to airport. personal and powerful. Worth the whole trip into that city and local church. A life-transforming conversation.

The Airport Ride – Part Four

To have this “life” we were speaking of in yesterday’s blog one must cultivate an intimate relationship with the giver of life – Jesus Himself. To have a daily and deep intimacy with Jesus you must be intentional. It will never happen by accident. Wishing and hoping does not work. Planning and organizing does. One must be determined and desire this intimacy more than anything else. And, the goal must be a daily intimacy with Him who is life – a daily relationship that has depth and that realizes how dependent we are on Him for “everything that pertains unto life and godliness.”

This means that there are a number of steps each leader (and every disciple) must take:

1> Separate yourself from the everyday scramble of life. Schedule some time each day in your calendar for a meeting with Jesus. Just as you schedule time for coffee with a friend or spouse – schedule time daily to be with God.

To note: If you are a leader who teaches you must separate your time in the Word to find teaching content from your time in the Word of God for personal spiritual feeding. If a good teaching idea pops up as your feed your own soul, take a minute and write it down somewhere (a separate sermon notebook or journal) so you don’t forget it – but then come back to your personal time with the Lord and His Word.

2> You will need a journal to write in (paper or electronic) so you can record what Jesus is saying to you personally. When you hear Him speak to you – this is God speaking so write down what He is saying. If it is God then it is important, in fact, vital to your spiritual life. This way you have a record of it and can review it later. It will also help you in the long run to actually trace the steps you have taken to follow Him.

3> Learn to listen to Him first and then respond to what He is saying. This is what I call prophetic prayer. He speaks first and we respond. After all, He is God and so has the right to speak first. To accomplish this you will need to:

Learn to be still. The Bible states, “Be still and know that I am God.” This means being physically still on the outside but also still on the inside. That means recording your thoughts as they wander … because as you write them down on a piece of paper your mind realizes that it does not need to continue to remind you of this event, phone call, appointment… and you thus clear your mind of such clutter in the first few minutes as you “still” yourself. The same is true for your emotions – these too need to be still.

Learn to be silent. This, again, is silent on the outside and the inside. Turn off the praise and worship music. Turn off the noise on the inside. Do whatever it takes to be seriously “silent.”

Learn to have solitude. You need to be alone and not in the line of activity within the home or office. In other words, find a place where you will not be bothered or interrupted in your intimate time with Jesus. If this means rising early before everyone else in the household or getting to the church office hours before others arrive, then do it! You need to be alone. And, right, your time worshipping and praying in the car does not count towards an intimate time with Jesus.

Learn to fellowship with the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 13:14 (in the Russian Bible it is 2 Corinthians 13:13) states that we are to have “fellowship with the Holy Spirit.” This means taking the time to know Him. He is separate from and even different than Jesus or God the Father. He has feelings, an attitude, a task to do, and a personality. We need to come to know these and spend time personally with Him.

If we implement these suggestions and not become discouraged we will soon find that we are getting to know Jesus and the Holy Spirit (and thus the Father God) better and are discovering His heartbeat. This will lead us to intimacy and desiring even more than we are experiencing. Thus we will continue to work at having depth in our daily time with Him.

There is still one more thing we need … we will discuss this tomorrow as we bring this mini-series to an end.

The Airport Ride – Part Three

On the way to the airport recently I was asked a number of powerfully important questions by a senior pastor and leader who, for all outward appearances, is very popular and very successful. One of those questions dealt with the real root and substance of the local church. He was talking about the basic, essential ingredient that is needed for a church to succeed.

My answer was that the very “life” of God needed to be felt, experienced, and received by the people attending any given service. It is the “life” of God that attracts people, brings people back, touches people, transforms people, and even brings them into the Kingdom. People, Christians and non-Christians, know when that “life” is present and when ‘it’ is not present. It is this “life” that draws them and this “life” must be experienced to keep them coming.

The Bible states (John 1:4) “In Him (Jesus) was life and the life was the light of men.” Jesus was not the ‘light.’ The “life” of God (Zoe) within Him was the light that drew men to Him. The word “life” is used by John, the apostle, 36 times in his Gospel account of the life and ministry of Jesus. He refers to it in several contexts.

First the word “life” is in reference to the actual creation of the world. It refers, in the broad sense, to the created world through His involvement as the agent of creation. John 1:3 states: “All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life…”

However, the word “life” is also referring to the spiritual ands eternal life imparted as a gift through belief in Him. This is seen in John 3:15: “…that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.” And in John 17:3: “And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” We also see it in the writings of Paul, the apostle. For example, Ephesians 2:5: “…even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved…”

Thirdly, this “life” is the very life of God (Zoe). It is the very life and nature of God the Father in Jesus. And, in every believer there is also this life – the presence of God, the fruit of the Spirit (the character or nature of God), and the very essence of who He is. It all resides inside the born again believer. As a result, when true believers and disciples of the Lord Jesus come together this “life” should be evident. It should be encountered and experienced by all who are present and whose hearts are open. Jesus said, “when two or three are gathered in My Name, there am I…” and if He is there then “life” is there.

In the specific case we were discussing on the way to the airport, this life was missing in the local church. There was a well run, well designed event (let’s not call it a worship service) that contained singing, announcements, offering, and a teaching. But, there was no “life.” There was nothing moving in the spiritual realm. You didn’t need the Holy Spirit for anything that happened that night at the assembly. It was dead. There was no life. It was simply program and activity. And, a vast majority of the people there – by the look on their faces and their lack of response – knew that “life” was not there.

This “life” must first be experienced by each leader in the leadership team before it will be felt or seen in the weekly gathering. You cannot export what you do not have and have not experienced. And, having met with the leadership team during my visit, I would say that it was not there either. So, each leader must work to connect with the Living God and experience “life” for themselves. Then we can work on the assembly experiencing life. This means each leader must make time to be with Jesus and grow a depth of intimacy with Him that they have yet to achieve and experience.

The Airport Ride – Part Two

On my way to the airport late on a Sunday night I was asked a question by the senior pastor of a church that I had been working with for two days. The question: “What is the role of the senior leader in a local church?”

This young leader has a good sized church with an active leadership and about 100 people attending. He has a well designed and implemented worship service geared very much like an American church service one might see in a larger church in that nation. And, he is wondering what his key role is in the church that he is leading.

The answer: I believe the most important role or function of the senior leader is to cast a vision for the people. This vision must first be of God. The Bible states, “Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint.” The word translated “restraint” could also have been translated as “discouraged.” This ‘vision’ we are to have – cast by the senior leader – is first a vision of God.

We need to see our God for whom He is as revealed to us through the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Jesus said, “If you have seen Me you have seen the Father” while talking to Philip. And, Jesus also said that His reason for coming was to ‘reveal the Father.’ So, we need to know our God. We need to know and be aware of His plans and His purposes. We need to know His heart for the lost. But, most of all, how powerful and loving He really is.

From this vision of God the local leader can then share the vision for the Kingdom worldwide. The Kingdom is bigger than the Church. The Kingdom has been established through the birth of Jesus, the King. And, according to the prophet Isaiah, the Kingdom will continue to grow and expand constantly. And, the Kingdom is the place where Jesus, the King, reigns. This Kingdom will be established in its fullness when Jesus returns. However, it is here now and a powerful reality.

Build upon this vision of God and His Kingdom is the vision of the Church that Jesus is building. Prophets today have the blueprint for the Church that Jesus is building (Matthew 16:18) and apostles, being master builders, know how to build it. So, a local leader will need to team up with an apostolic-prophetic team to bring the vision of the Church to their people. This is because the ministry of the apostle and prophet is foundational (Ephesians 2:20) and must be first and second in order in the new Church (1 Corinthians 12:28).

The local leader can then talk about and share the vision of the local church that he leads. Every local church has the same basic calling of “seeking and saving the lost” and “making disciples.” However, how this is accomplished and what the life of the local church is going to look like is all part of the vision of the local church. This vision must be built upon a vision of God, the Kingdom, and the Church that Jesus is building.

Then and only then can we share with each individual disciple of the Lord Jesus the vision for their call. Then and only then can we really focus on what the disciples of Jesus are called to do within the vision of the local church that they belong to and are a vital and active part of. Their call and vision for their life must fit within the vision of the local church where God has planted them. And, their ministry is there to help the local church complete the work it has been called to accomplish, not the other way around.

The issue is, as I explained to the leader on the way to the airport, that most churches and believers start with the vision for their own roll and call or ministry. It must never start there – it must always start with the vision of God and who He is. That is what the Bible states: “Where there is no prophetic vision (of God) the people cast off restraint.” It is foundational to everything else.

The Airport Ride – Part One

I was on my way to the airport recently when the pastor who was driving me began to ask some serious questions. I was tired. It was the end of two weeks of ministry. And, I was facing two full days of airport layovers and flights. However, his questions were important and I worked hard to stay focused and answer them as best I could.

He asked me what his focus should be with his leaders. I had spent half a day with them earlier and had been asked to speak on “Intimacy with God.” It had been a powerful morning session of worship, teaching, and prophetic ministry. Then a few hours of fellowship over a late restaurant lunch. So, I had some idea of who the leaders were and where they were at spiritually. My answer: That there was a need to work on character.

Often we have the gifts of the Spirit flowing, we have decent teachings, we have great worship, and the numbers attending can be substantial and enough to have a dynamic movement and growth. However, all believers, especially leaders, need to focus on their character.

The base of character in one’s life is the fruit of the Spirit as listed in Galatians 5:22-23. So, we need to focus on the fruit of the Spirit and see these aspects of one’s character grow and mature.

However, we also need to focus on a number of other “character traits” as seen in daily life… an examination of which would help him, as the senior leader, know the nature of the character of each of his leaders…

1> Fruitfulness – Does the person, by their lifestyle and testimony, see people come to Christ on a regular basis.

2> Faith – What is the person believing for. What are they believing God for that is impossible if God does not move on their behalf. Matthew 10:29 speaks of personal faith and applying one’s faith towards something.

3> Faithful – Is the person faithful to the call as a disciple and to the ministry they are fulfilling. Most importantly, are they faithful in their attendance at the local church where they are leaders.

4> Finances – Paul tells Timothy to pick men who are of good reputation inside and outside the local church. If a leader is not handling their finances correctly and has a bad reputation with local businesses and banks then this is a clear character issue as they are living beyond their means. The leaders, as with all true disciples, should also be tithing to the local church and giving over and above the tithe.

5> Friends – Who are their friends? Bad company corrupts good morals the Book of Proverbs states. So, to know what a person is like you should see who they consider as friends and who they hang out with when they have down time.

6> Fun – What does the person do for fun? How a person entertains themselves in their off time speaks loudly to their character.

7> Family – Are there good relationships within the family? Do they have a decent relationship with their family members – children, wife, and other relatives? If those closest to you do not love and respect you then there is an issue.

These are all additions to the first mentioned character issue – the fruit of the Spirit.

So, I examine or look for these 8 things when determining character. This is especially true regarding someone you are thinking of placing into leadership. However, all believers should focus on character issues. We become so focused on skills, abilities, giftings, and callings that we often fail to focus on those things which are more basic and seriously foundational.

More on my ride to the airport tomorrow….

Interesting To Note – Part Five

We are looking at some of my many observations about the Church as it currently is in many nations and many locations… These are general issues that are, in my opinion, effecting many local churches today regardless of the nation they are located in. Issues that are serious but fixable. It will take time to repair the damage done and being done to the Church by these issues but it is doable. To accomplish the needed changes we will need strong, biblical, servant leadership and a tremendous amount of patience and prayer. The first 21 observations are found in the previous blogs with the same name… Let’s continue with a few more of my observations.

22> We are facing a challenge that is two-sided. First, people are wanting to be entertained and not equipped. They are looking for teachings that are not going to challenge them to do something or stretch them spiritually, relationally, or financially. They want ‘comfortable’ teachings that tell them everything is alright and God is pleased with them just as they are. Thus, they like short teachings that are entertaining, even funny. They are looking for “teachers who will tickle their ears” (2 Timothy 4:3).

The other side of this lack of hunger for substance is the leaders who are bowing to this expectation and simply teaching fluff – words without substance and depth. In conversation with one of my interpreters recently he commented that he had recently left a very large and popular church in his city (as had some of his friends a few months before) because the pastor did not teach the Bible in any depth and was seriously boring. He finally decided that he had slept through his last sermon and went looking for a church where he could be fed, equipped, and “grow up in every way into Him who is the Head, into Christ” (Ephesians 4:15).

23> In many places people are no longer committed to one local church but attend a number of churches. Or, they have simply stopped attending any church. The end result is the same – they are not connected to a local church family and thus not active as a part of any local church body. The Bible states that each one of us is placed in a Body by God and must be an active, contributing members of that Body – the local church (1 Corinthians 12).

So, these believers are out of biblical order and should be actively praying and looking for a local church to which they can commit and become a vital and contributing member of. If not then they continue to believe they are okay with God and even minister as they travel from church to church … and really they are simply in rebellion and not living a biblically-based lifestyle. They are really dangerous.

24> Many believers are having spiritual experiences that they are not then checking to the standard – the Bible. They are assuming that because they are “spiritual” experiences then they must be from God. A reminder: We are in a war with “the domain of darkness” (Colossians 1:13) and the “god of this world” (2 Corinthians 4:4) and thus spiritual experiences need to be tested (1 Thessalonians 5:19-21). Not everything we experience is from God.

So, as a result, many believers are being deceived. And, even when they look to see if their experience might be biblical, they are so ignorant of the Word and how to properly understand God’s Word that they simply twist verses, taking them out of context, to back up and confirm their experience.

25> Many leaders and believers today are discovering their giftings and callings. This is good, very good. It will make for a stronger and more effective Church if… And, it is a big IF.

A person who is gifted and not broken is dangerous. By broken I mean the person has come to realize that they are really nothing and can do nothing of eternal significance except by trusting in and totally relying on God. They cannot rely on their talents, skills, education, position, or anything else except the leading of the Holy Spirit and the supernatural power of God. In other words, they are humble and not proud, dependent and not independent. They are submitted and accountable.

A broken and gifted person is a blessing to the local church and the Kingdom of God. They will be productive and effective in their ministry and will have solid, longterm relationships within a local church where they will serve and bless many.

As we look at the Church today there is a great deal that we need to deal with. We simply cannot hide from the issues that exist and we must be bold and empowered by God to raise the issues and move forward in a positive and constructive way into health and wholeness.

Report on January-February 2016 visit to Russia

From January 26th to the 8th of February, 2016 Ralph was ministering in the cities of Kazan and Nizhny Novgorod in the wonderful nation of Russia. He worked with 7 different churches ranging from a Word-Faith Church to a Charismatic Orthodox Church. It was one of the most powerful apostolic trips that Ralph has been recently involved in.

This was Ralph’s second trip into Kazan working with four churches he had visited before and established relationships with. This trip he added The Rapture Church and enjoyed his initial visit to this Charismatic Orthodox Church. He then spend a few days in Nizhny Novgorod where he had ministered three years ago. Here he ministered in the same church he had formed a relationship with as well as a new church that was exciting to come to know and minister to.

This area of Russia is strongly Muslim and there are only a few born again Christian churches. So, Ralph was asked to ministered on the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and the supernatural gifts of the Spirit, especially how they relate to evangelism and impacting people and communities for Jesus.

Plans are already underway for a return visit most likely in July to focus on and minister to the youth of the churches involved. This visit would most likely be connected to one already scheduled for the city of Yaroslavl, Russia and a large annual youth conference where Ralph will be speaking.

Interesting To Note – Part Four

Please review the previous three blogs to refresh your memory of what we have already said about this topic…

I have been looking at what I believe are major issues in the Church today. Let me continue in this direction for one more day. Then maybe we can look at what I believe is the solution for some, if not all, of these issues and others I won’t even mention.

17> There is a serious lack of real prayer in many churches today. We either see little to no prayer or man-cantered prayer where we fail to listen for God and simply talk. The prayer life of the Church, at best, is pastoral and thus focused on our needs, our wants, our issues, our church. In the Book of Acts, the way I read it at least, I see the early Church listening for the voice of God and then responding to what He speaks. I call this prophetic prayer. It is God-centred and not man-centred. It is prophetic and not pastoral or pathetic. It is, in my heart and mind, the way prayer is meant to be.

18> Our salvation comes from God initiating and our responding to Him. Romans 5:8 states that while we were still sinners God sent Jesus to die for us. We responded. We did find Jesus as He was not lost – we were. He found us and we responded to His love and His offer of salvation. So, we began in the spirit with God initiating and us responding. Paul, in Galatians 3:3 asks why have we reversed that and now we initiate and expect God to respond? “How can you be so stupid,” the verse states, “having begun in the Spirit why are you now trying to fulfill it in the flesh?” Good question. We need to change this aspect of Church life seen in many countries today. We need to let God initiate as He is God and we are not. Then, we can respond. This is true for all aspects of the faith.

19> Our leadership in the Church is, in most cases, headed up by a pastor. Again, this is not biblical. In the New Testament Church there was always a leadership team and, most times, this team was led by an apostle or a prophet. 1 Corinthians 12:38 states, talking about the Church, that God placed in this Church He is building first apostles and then prophets… The list goes on to name a few other roles and ministries. However, it fails to even mention the ministry of the local pastor or the five-fold pastor. In fact, there is no such thing in the early Church as a local pastor. The word “pastor” only appears in Ephesians 4:12 and is referencing the fivefold ministry of the pastor… working trans-locally as do the other fivefold ministers – apostles, prophets, evangelists,and teachers.

20> We teach to transfer information from the pulpit to the heads of the people listening. But, biblically I believe we are meant to speak life into the heart of God’s people and this life will bring transformation … not simply the accumulation of more knowledge with no accompanying life change. Jesus said that His words were Spirit and they were life (John 6:63). It is the release of this ‘life’ in the inner person that bring about tremendous transformation of heart and soul leading eventually to a change in lifestyle.

21> When the disciples gather we teach. In reality we are suppose to equip (Ephesians 4:12). As a result Christians do not know how to minister and simply leave the ministry to the expert who went to Bible School or seminary to learn to minister. The task or role of the fivefold ministers is to”equip the saints for the work of the ministry.” It is not to do the ministry – it is to teach God’s people, the priesthood of all believers, how to do the ministry. Then, once equipped, the various parts of the Body of Christ can minister to one another. There are, I believe, 26 “one another” verses (commands) in the New Testament. These cannot be fulfilled if we do not equip God’s people and release them to minister.

And the list could go on.

But, there is hope! Jesus is not finished yet. He is working to change His Church and bring it into line with the Biblical pattern. We need to hear His voice, heed His voice, and move forward with the changes He is making. Then His Church will become healthy once again and the Kingdom of God will begin to expand and push back the darkness as lost souls find hope in Jesus.

Interesting To Note – Part Three

(See blogs from last two days)

We are looking at some interesting observations – at least I think they are interesting – and speak volumes about the health of the Church today. The last two blogs have briefly mentioned ten things I am observing. Let’s continue on from there…

11> Christians today are not walking by faith and really have a lack of faith in God. They apparently have a very small and impotent image of God in their head and heart. Maybe it is because they believe that God has failed them in the past. It could be because no one has taught them how to “stand in faith” and believe for something. But they certainly do not walk by faith in their daily life. And, few are setting ‘faith goals’ where they are believing God for something big that only He can accomplish. Matthew 9:29 seems to mean nothing.

12> There is a large entertainment factor in a number of churches today. The music is loud, lights flash, dry ice floating across the platform, modern technology, video for announcements, and more singing and performing than worship. And, it is seriously obvious that the presence of God is absent and apparently very few are aware of this. It is as if God is noting His disfavour of what is happening by simply not showing up in power – or even at all. He seems unimpressed with our performance and simply is not willing to “play church” and bless it.

13> Seldom do we see community formed when members truly interact and engage with one another – loving one another as the Scriptures tell us we should. Many attend but few engage. This is partly the performance mentality (see #12 above) where people come to watch a ‘concert’ and so don’t feel the need to engage or even participate. However, this is not how the Church was designed to be. Those who are followers of Jesus are meant to be in community as part of the “called out ones” and are meant to be inter-connected one with another. They are to know, love, support, encourage, and pray for and with one another. They cannot and should not stand alone and simply spectate.

14> There is a real lack of life in the Church. I don’t mean hype with smoke and mirrors. I mean the very life and nature of God present, experienced, and embraced. The Bible states that “In Jesus was life (Zoe – essence, presence, nature of God) and this life was the light of men (John 1:4). People were attracted to Jesus because of the “life” in Him. Jesus tells us that “we are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14). And this means that the life of God in us as it rises from our inner most being and flows out like a river is the light to those who do not know Jesus. This “life” attracts people and brings them into contact with God and eventual entrance into the Kingdom. This life is sadly lacking in most churches today.

15> People are not being discipled and so are not growing into maturity. Many who have attended church services for years and have heard hundreds of teachings from the Bible are not mature and certainly not reproducing. There is a need for a “Timothy Ministry” to arise in every church where new believers, as well as immature believers, are discipled in the basics of the Christian faith so that they can become mature, contributing members of the Body of Christ as well as reproducing themselves as they make disciples on their journey through life every day.

16> Not only is there a shortage of discipling – there is a dangerous lack of mentoring within the Body of Christ – the Church. Young men and women are not being mentored into their callings and ministries. They are not being helped and equipped by those already in the ministry and who have the same calling. Seasoned apostles should be mentoring younger apostles; seasoned prophets mentor younger and immature prophets. Only in this way can we build from one generation to the next.
Maybe more tomorrow….
