This ministry is dedicated to revolutionizing today's Christian theology by focusing solely on the Word of God and seeking to receive the Holy Spirit as stated in scripture. God's Word advises us to "Meditate on the Word night and day," and again, "Search the Scriptures for in them you think you have eternal life". Of the Spirit he says, "The Holy Spirit will guide you to all truth," and, "The Spirit searches the deep things of God." You MUST seek to receive the Spirit of God and allow Him to teach you through your own personal studies. For more information on this subject read Acts, chapter 10. Cornelius, the centurion of the Italian Regiment, was the first Gentile to receive the Spirit of God, he and his household. He was a devout man, who feared God, gave generously to the poor and prayed to God always. This should give you a good indication of the type of person God gives his Holy Spirit to, and how those who have received Him should conduct themselves.
We use the New King James Version for all scriptural references for two reasons: It's a word for word translation that shows every added word in italics, unless it's part of a quote, in which case an entire sentence or paragraph will be italicized. And, if a reference to a verse is missing, you will be able to verify it by doing a word or phrase search in the New King James Version. Any other references will state the books, documentaries or web pages they can be found in.
Lastly, while we believe you will find truth in the teachings of this ministry, we recommend that you look up every reference on your own, verify the information and confirm that it's from God. The Lord says, "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing of the Word of God." If a man preaches/teaches his own words, he's seeking his own glory. Seek the Word my brothers and sisters and try to surround yourself with others that do too. Once you have been perfected, "Out of your heart will flow rivers of living water."
Unite based on common beliefs
Regardless of your Christian background we should all of have the following common beliefs regarding our Lord, Christ Jesus:
- Came into the world to save sinners (1 Timothy 1:15)
- Became the final sacrificial sin offering for the whole world (Hebrews 10:10)
- Suffered and rose from the dead on the 3rd day proclaiming that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be preached in his name to all nations (Luke 24:46)
- Warned of times of tribulation, in which we should be faithful until death (Revelation)
While there are many other things we can agree on, this will be our foundation for the beginning of these studies. Virtually everything can be debated to some degree or another, especially the book of Revelation. The goal is to unite on common grounds, respect differences in opinion, and yet remain open that the thousands of doctrines that are taught today cannot all be correct scripturally. Let us seek God's Word and separate from the doctrines of Man. Jesus was a revolutionary because of this simple fact. Let us follow our Lord and trust in the Word of God alone and question every man, as it is written, "Let God be True, and every man a Liar".
Educate by examining history and the foundations of different belief systems
We live in an era when everyone believes what they're told instead of verifying the information. This cannot continue. If something doesn't make sense, ask questions. Do not believe what you're told because of your upbringing. If that doctrine doesn't follow the Word of God, it will not save you. Study the bible using a Word for Word translation with a Strongs Concordance. Read books by trusted sources on the history of your belief system. See where the beginning of your doctrine was founded and who by. Take note of the other organizations the founder was affiliated with during it's creation. What were their goals and initiatives? Remember, "Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works." (2 Cor. 11:14-15)
Equip to become a servant and teacher for all
By studying the Word of God, growing spiritually through prayer and increasing in faith, we will be prepared for all the work the Lord has called us to — even if it leads to persecution or even death. Once our faith has been perfected we will have no fear (1 John 4:18).
You might ask, what has the Lord asked us to do? He called us to live as he lived, completely selfless, always looking to minister to others. He said he who is greatest among you shall be servant of ALL. This is precisely why he, as Lord, washed the disciples feet. This was a demonstration of how much servitude we should have for others. In James we read, "Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world." (James 1:27)
Send out to educate and testify to others
God has called us all to do the work of an evangelist (2 Tim. 4:5) and expose the works of darkness (Eph. 5:11). Most of us can handle sharing our faith, but few dare to take on this second task, mostly due to fear. We MUST have faith in God and warn our brothers and sisters of false teachings that contradict God's Word. "Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves." (Matt 10:16)
