This week we teach on our responsibility as God’s kids to be Christ's ambassadors. As 2 Corinthians 5:20 states: So we are Christ's ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ's personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God.
This program covers the following scriptures from the Amplified Classic version (AMPC): Ephesians 1:17-21; 2 Corinthians 5:20
No decision of a free-will is ever forced, otherwise the will would not be a ‘free’ will. The most important free-will decision is the one in which we make for Christ, to receive Jesus as our Savior and Lord. God does not force this upon us, nor does he force upon us the Truth, which is the Bible, God’s Own Word.
This week we focus on asking the Lord for the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. How this one prayer is important for us to ask before we read the bible or before we are taught by a minister of the Gospel. This, so that God can help us learn, comprehend and totally understand the Truth as we receive it.
This program covers the following scriptures from the Amplified Classic version (AMPC): Ephesians 1:17-21.
The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is performing extraordinary rescues of countless souls in the spiritual realm every minute of every day when those souls make a decision for Christ Jesus.
A Great Rescue occurred at the moment you made the decision to give it all up for Jesus and allow him into your heart, confessing Him as Lord (Romans 10:9). This Great Rescue involved your (new) Heavenly Father, the Great Jehovah, YHWH Himself. There was no other way He could have rescued you from the powers of darkness EXCEPT via The Way, that being Christ Himself, only due to His shed blood and all of the works that were finished at the Cross.
God the Father, personally present in Christ Himself, was able to translate (rescue, capture, transfer) you from the influence and bondage to sin and all evil and into the Kingdom of His Beloved Son. (2 Corinthians 5:19; Colossians 1:13). Now we must keep our focus on Jesus, abide in His Word, and in Him, walk with Him daily, continue to acknowledge Him. Just as you would your best friend, only God is far better than your best friend on the earth.
This program covers the following scriptures from the Amplified Classic version (AMPC): 2 Corinthians 5:18-21; Hebrews 4:12-16; Romans 8:2.
The undeserved favor, the mercy and favor of God has caused fallen man who received Jesus as Savior and Lord, to be reconciled, rescued by God the Father. God Himself rescued you from out from under the powers of darkness and into the Kingdom of His Beloved Son. You are a new creation, a new creature altogether (2 cor 5:17 AMPC).
This program covers the following scriptures from the Amplified Classic version (AMPC): 2 Corinthians 5:14-19; Hebrews 4:12, Romans 12:2
Do you believe who you are based on what the world says about you, based on your existing understanding of your own self? Or have you decided to put away all feelings, and sought the Truth of who God says you are.
This program covers the following scriptures from the Amplified Classic version (AMPC): James 1:17-18; Matthew 5:44-45; John 3:16; Proverbs 3:5-6; Romans 12:2.
Today we look at how to be at peace in Christ by not being anxious for anything. Knowing your Heavenly Father is key in order to be able to trust in Him in every circumstance, in everything in your day. Know that He is for you and not against you. Be set free from all worry and anxiety so that you can be secure in the love and peace of God in Christ.
This program covers the following scriptures from the Amplified Classic version (AMPC): Phil 4:6-7; Prov 3:5-6

Continuing on from last week’s teaching on running your situation by God’s Word to see if that situation is lining up with God’s Will, or if you should speak to that mountain, using the measure of Faith that God has given you, so that it lines up with God’s Will by the name of Jesus.
Also what your heart is focused on, what you give your heart to, you become. Your anxious thoughts pull like a magnet on the things of evil (Prov 15:15 – AMPC). This is why we must think on things that are above (Phil 4:8).
This program covers the following scriptures from the Amplified Classic version (AMPC): Heb 11:1-2, Phil 4:8, Prov 15:15.
Is the situation you are facing lining up with God? Do you know God’s heart for the situation you are going through? Are you waiting on God to move the mountain or are you speaking to it like Jesus told us to? Mark 11:23-24.
This program covers the following scriptures from the Amplified Classic version (AMPC): Heb 11:1-2; Rom 4:17-19; Mark 11:23-24.
We continue this week with how God breathed His Own Word, that He wrote the Bible and not man, with man being inspired by God to write what he heard in his heart to write. How it is critical to think like God thinks, not like we used to carnally think. How God does not change our minds, but waits for us to make the decision to give our life to Him, and receive His Son as Savior and Lord, before renewing our spirit so that we become born again, forever a new creation with the old having been buried with Christ (Romans 6:4). We also talk about using God’s Word for good purposes including conviction of sin and correction.
This program covers the following scriptures from the Amplified Classic version (AMPC): 2 Timothy 3:16, 1 Corinthians 2:16
This week we are continuing on with the study of Proverbs 15:15 (AMPC), and the power of anxious thoughts that can encourage and reaffirm evil events in our daily lives. The power of thoughts and what you say with your tongue (Proverbs 18:21), and whether you decide to acknowledge God every day, spending time with him, walking with Him, knowing He is with you.... These things dictate how you will go through the situations in your life, and whether you will allow mountains (problems) to stay in front of you and not be cast into the sea. (Mark 11:23-25). It is erroneous to believe that God controls everything. He obviously doesn’t because He does not violate a free will. You decided when you gave your life to Jesus. God knew if and when you would, but He didn’t decide for you. You made that choice. The same goes for every day, and everything you do and believe while you do those things. Are we talking God with us? Are we allowing Him to flow through us? Are we taking every thought captive in obedience to Him?
This program covers the following scriptures from the Amplified Classic version (AMPC): Proverbs 15:15, Isaiah 55:8, Proverbs 3:5-6
This program focuses on how we can unknowingly be held captive to deception and lies of the devil based on our lack of studying and walking in the Truth which is the Word of God. Especially in times such as these, it is so important that we are able to know that a believer can speak to a situation to force it to line up with how it should be based on the Word of God. If the believer still thinks the way he or she used to think, then they continue to live with fear and anxiety, believing that the situation controls them instead of the situation being controlled by their declarations of God over the situation.
This program covers the following scriptures from the Amplified Classic version: John 8:32, John 8:36, John 8:44, Romans 8:2, Proverbs 14:12, Proverbs 15:15, Isaiah 55:8-9, Proverbs 3:5-6, Proverbs 12:5, 1 Corinthians 2:16.
In this week’s broadcast we focus on the reality of Jesus being the Word made flesh, who in turn brings healing and health to your flesh – your physical body. But have we contemplated this truth so we can receive this healing to our body, or do we continue on in our carnal misunderstanding of God’s will about divine healing, remaining sick along the way? Why do we continue to reject these scriptures and not accept them as the Truth, thereby being in disobedience to Christ? Why disobedience? We should not allow a sickness to remain in our bodies since that sickness was already bore by Christ (Isa 53:4).
Additionally, we do not own our physical bodies: We are not our own, we have been bought with a price by God. (1 Cor 6:19-20). When we accept this, we get healed. Or, when someone lays hands on us, we get healed if they believe by faith, but, we may not remain healed if we continue not to go after this Truth and accept it for ourselves, continuing on in life as a sitting duck allowing the devil and his works to continue unabated without our tongue deciding to use God’s Word against such attacks.
Also it is up to us to decide to understand the nature of God’s character so that we may not only understand who the believer now is in Christ, but also be able to represent God accurately, being a good witness and steward of His Word. That it is critical for us to understand the nature of God without communicating our misunderstanding of God to others, at the risk of leading them even further astray from the Lord.
This program covers the following scriptures from the Amplified version: Proverbs 4:20-22, John 1:14, John 1:1-2 (AMP)
This program reminds us of the defeat of sickness and disease, as a result of God defeating the devil and his powers of darkness by him being disarmed (Col 2:15). The devil may still have the ability to inflict sickness and disease and other oppressive evil measures against humanity, but he has no authority to do so because of being disarmed by God in Christ, at the Cross (Col 2:15).
Now, the believer, having faith in, and using the name of Jesus, can triumph in Him over evil, by speaking God’s Word over a situation. As a result, the believer can set a person free from any work of the enemy including sickness and disease.
We also speak about the nature of how the human race multiplies and continues to reproduce fallen human beings due to the lineage back to Adam. That is until a person decides to become born again, giving their life over to Christ, receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. Their old spirit is then recreated, their lineage to the fallen human race being severed. At this point, since they are a new creation (2 Cor 5:17), their new lineage now goes back one generation to Christ Himself.
This program covers the following scriptures from the Amplified version: Colossians 2:15, Genesis 3:6, Hebrews 1:3, Acts 10:38, Romans 5:12, Matthew 25:41, John 10:10.
God told Joshua three times in four verses in the same chapter to be strong and courageous. (Joshua 1:6,7,9). Exodus 15:3 says ‘The Lord is a man of war; the Lord is his name.’
At all times, great and and not so great, God is saying that we are to be strong and courageous! We are to stand strong, and act who we already are as believers based on our identity in Christ.
To which of us be in Christ, we are Sons! We are to subdue the earth (Col 2:6, Gen 1:26, Rom 8:14). We are to speak and declare the Word of God over our homes, neighborhoods, towns, country and the world! (Gen 1:26, Prov 18:21).
We are not to bow to anxiety, worry or fear, no matter what the size of the mountain is (Mark 11:23-24), however grave the situation is. (Matt 6:25-34). 2 Tim 1:7 - for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
In this program we speak about this general topic. We pray and speak life over the people of the Mukuru Slum near Nairobi, Kenya, as well as all others listening. We return briefly to Psalm 91, and show that, like many other scriptural verses, verses 9 and 10 are conditional on the believer acting on the instruction given by the verse, in order to benefit from the stated outcome.
This program covers the following scriptures: Joshua 1:1-9; Matthew 28:19-20; Daniel 3:16-28; Psalm 91:9-10; Matthew 10:7-8; Luke 10:19; 2 Corinthians 2:14;
During these challenging times of sickness and disease in the world, or whatever troubles you are facing, we need to make the decision to not live in fear or worry, but to listen to God instead of moving away from him for one more day. God is always speaking to us, but are we holding a conversation with him? There is no relationship without communication. God has paid an extremely high price to allow us to be reconciled back to Him by believing in His Son Jesus and confessing him as Lord.
Jesus wants us to cast our cares upon him, no matter what the cares are. In this program we discuss the ways God speaks to us, through His Word, through His Son, and in our daily circumstances. We have a free will to decide if we will read the bible, the Truth of the Word of God. We get to decide if we will spend time with Jesus, talking to him, but also being still and knowing that He is God. The believer is supposed to live free of anxiety (Matthew 6:25). We are to be the light in this world of sickness and disease, command all forms of sickness and viruses to be gone from people’s bodies. Laying hands on the sick so that they shall recover (Mark 16:17-18). Viruses should be fleeing from us when we submit to God! (James 4:7), since all forms of sickness and disease are the oppression of the devil (Acts 10:38).
2 Cor 2:14 But thanks be to God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ and reveals the fragrance of his knowledge through us in every place.
Brothers and Sisters, Army of God... we can do ALL THINGS through Christ, who strengthens us! (Phil 4:13).
In this program we draw the distinction between the popular Psalm Chapter 91, and the position of the believer as a new creation based on the finished works of Christ at the Cross.
While it is perfectly acceptable for a person to take comfort, believe and trust in the Lord by following Psalm 91, it is important to acknowledge and live by the finished works of the Cross. Jesus shed his blood to pay for all sin and for that sin to be forgiven for anyone who confesses it (see 1 John 1:9). The blood of Christ also paid for the new birth, the regenerated spirit of a lost soul, having been translated out from under the powers of darkness and into Christ’s kingdom (see Colossians 1:13). Why all of this? Just to be “certified” to get into heaven one day? No. It’s to do as Jesus did on this earth while we are still here. To bring the earth under control, to subdue it, to cast out sicknesses and all forms of death out of people. This, to demonstrate the Good News, the Gospel of Christ Jesus.
Psalm 91 is Trusting in God and doing nothing except that. That compared to the new covenant that the new believer partakes of now since the blood of Jesus was shed. That new covenant was what God made with Jesus. That is, Christ in us, the hope of glory. That is, the power of the Holy Spirit indwelling the new creation, so that believers walk in the power of God, going about doing good, healing all who are oppressed by the devil, for God is with them (see Acts 10:38). You say, ‘Well, that was Jesus. We are not Jesus.’ You are correct, we are not God, but Jesus himself said we are to do the same works and greater than him (see John 14:12). We are not to sit back and hope we’re sheltered by the Almighty (Psalm 91). We are to walk in the dominion Christ restored for us, take charge, arise and shine and be fearless in this world, bringing heaven to earth, setting people free by Christ flowing through and from us.
This program covers the following scriptures: Ps 91:1-16; Heb 1:1-2; Matthew 26:26-28
In this week's program on your Identity in Christ, we talk about the situation in the world with the coronavirus (Covid-19) and how we should act when it comes to our faith. Jesus said for us to be anxious for nothing (Matthew 6:25-34). Luke recorded Jesus as saying that nothing would hurt us (Luke 10:19). We show how all sickness and disease is the oppressive work of the enemy Satan and the powers of darkness (Acts 10:38), and that Jesus came to destroy these works (1 John 3:8). Now the believer in Christ, renewing his or her mind to the Truth (Romans 12:2) can walk in the victory Christ Jesus has won for us, which includes going about doing the same works and greater than Jesus (John 14:12)… which means to make earth look like heaven, which means to lay hands on the sick so that they shall recover. It means to not be fearful about this virus or any other sickness or disease. It will not jump on you if you believe Luke 10:19 that nothing shall by any means injure you.
Believers are to be the light of Christ in the darkness (Matthew 5:16). We are to take action in declaring freedom for people in any form of captivity, and that includes sickness and disease. (Isaiah 61:1, Mark 16:17-18).
Believers: Encourage yourselves in the Lord. (1 Samuel 30:6), then encourage one another. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
Remember that …'the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.’ (Romans 8:19)
In this week's program on your Identity in Christ, we teach on Galatians chapter 5, verse 1 (ESV):
-- For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
How precious was, and is the blood of Christ, the perfect sacrifice for us, the undeserving human race. The finished works of our Lord include our release from being slaves to sin, sickness and disease and all works of the enemy (devil). How important is it now, then, to realize this Truth, and to believe and act free, and not to continue to be enslaved to the ways of our old father, the devil Satan.
For the believer is now truly born-again, dead to its old self. All things now being new. (2 Cor 5:17). The believer is now blessed from on high with a new spirit, in which God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit indwell. That new spirit which is us, being set free from generational curses if any existed before the old baptism unto death with Jesus. (Romans 6:4). Now all that’s left to do is believe. Believing by being transformed... by renewing the mind... which means reading what God says about us and everything, and.... believing.
In this week's program on your Identity in Christ, we teach on Romans 5.
We were all affected by Adam and Eve's decision to obey the devil instead of the Lord in the Garden of Eden (see Genesis 3:6). Romans 5:18-19 (ESV) 18 Therefore, as one trespass[f] led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness[g] leads to justification and life for all men. 19 For as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous.
The one who trespassed was Adam. The One who died for us was the Last Adam - JESUS.
