February - Faith 2020

Faith 2020

What does 2020 hold for the Church?  For us? For our families and for nations? 2020 is the year for the Church to believe God for unprecedented miracles and expansion.  It is something much bigger than we can produce on our own.  It is exceedingly, abundantly above what we can do naturally.  In the world, it is a time of great darkness, but we believe the Church will shine brighter than ever before.  Now is our opportunity to believe the Word God has spoken, to take our position in Christ, then stand and see the salvation of the Lord.

When Jesus appeared to His disciples after His resurrection, He reprimanded them for their unbelief.  There were no “Welcome Back” signs and they were either hiding or had gone back fishing.  Mark 16:14 says Jesus upbraided them for their unbelief and hardness of heart.  The Message Bible says, “He took them to task most severely for their stubborn unbelief.”  Other words for upbraid are: reprimand, scold, tongue-lash, chew out, chastise, lecture and reproach.  Jesus hates unbeliefHe is looking for believers in 2020!

Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.  2 Chronicles 20:20

King Jehoshaphat was surrounded by three armies and was about to be destroyed.  The way this battle was won is a pattern for us found in 2 Chronicles 20.  The king called all of Judah together to look to God for help.  When they fasted and presented their case to God, they stood before the Lord together with their families.  The Spirit of God spoke through the prophet to be not afraid, to take their positions, stand still and see God’s salvation. Because the people believed that word, they bowed down to worship God, then stood up and began to praise loudly. 

The king reminded them to believe what God had said.  Then he gave them the unusual battle strategy to position the choir first, before the strong warriors and their weapons.  So, the singers put on their priestly garments of praise and went out to face three enemy armies singing, “Praise the Lord; for his mercy endureth forever.” One translation says, “Give thanks to Yahweh, for his loyal love is everlasting!” 

Every time someone moves out in faith, believing God for the impossible, get ready for all of heaven and even angels to move!  Lilian B. Yeomans said, God has tied Himself irrevocably to human cooperation in the execution of Divine purposes.  He has made man’s faith a determining factor in the work of redemption.”  It’s time to believe God for the supernatural!

Can you imagine Judah’s amazement as King Jehoshaphat watched angel armies come from heaven?  As a result, the enemy armies killed each other and it took three days to gather the spoil, the abundant possessions and wealth of the enemies.  God turned what seemed like destruction into great peace and prosperity.  They spent the fourth day thanking God and named that place, “The Valley of Blessing!”

These are some other examples of those who saw miracles as they believed God.  When Mary believed the message from the angel, she became the mother of Jesus.  When the early Church was being persecuted, they prayed, and God shook the place where they were.  Instead of quitting, the church multiplied, and they increased in boldness.   When Paul and Silas were in prison, they prayed and sang praises until God shook that place and saved the jailer and his entire family!

Our part is to believe God and God’s part is to do miracles.  Never remove God from your faith formula.  Just because you know how faith works doesn’t mean you know how God will do your miracle. Let God be God. Believing is the attitude of faith and speaking is the action of faith.  Believing what God has said is essential to our faith working. 

2020 is the year of increased revelation knowledge - 20/20 Vision!  If you can grow in revelation knowledge, you can grow in faith.  Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.  2 Thessalonians 1:3 says, “...your faith groweth exceedingly.”  The kingdom of God operates by the law of faith and governs what you receive from God, so exercise your faith and it will grow exceedingly.  Your mountain needs to hear your voice.  Faith will not prevent all mountains, but it will move them!

2020 is the year to not hold back anything God has told you to do. If you don’t hold back, God won’t hold back!   Acts 20:20 in the Passion Translation says, “...I’ve not held anything back from you that would help you grow.” Whatever vision, whatever assignment, calling or dream God has put in your heart, do not hold back.  God will work with you to do everything He has promised. God will not hold back finances or His ability and grace.  He will confirm His Word with signs following. 


2020 is a year Mark Hankins Ministries and all our partners press forward to the mark of the high calling of God.  This year we want to translate books into more languages and teach through every possible means of communication.  Our desire is to target unreached people who have never heard the messages of faith, the authority of the believer and the work and the person of the Holy Spirit. We will hold International Leadership Conferences equipping pastors and leaders and putting our books in their languages, in their hands. When you bless a pastor, you bless a church. When you bless a church, you bless a city. When you bless a city, you bless a nation!

MHM Missions’ destinations for 2020 are:  Papua New Guinea, Ukraine, Albania, Greece, Croatia, Kenya, Nigeria, Colombia and Brazil.  Thank you, our partners, for helping send us to train and equip pastors and leaders in these nations!  The Holy Spirit is raining on these fields now and we know these doors are open now.  The time is now to be busy doing what Jesus has given us to do - TOGETHER!  What happens NEXT depends on what happens NOW!  Let’s gather souls and gather up the “spoil” together!  We believe the blessing of partnership is this: “But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

This month we want to offer you a brand new 3 cd set Faith 2020 and our book Faith Opens the Door to the Supernatural for your offering of $20 or more.  We believe these resources will strengthen your faith as you begin this new year and you will receive EVERYTHING GOD HAS FOR YOU THIS YEAR!!!


In Christ,

Partner: a sharer, an associate, someone who takes part.  One saying I really like is, When the water in the bay rises, all the boats rise.  We were so thrilled to purchase our NEW MHM property a year ago and we believe it is a distribution center for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  This year, we have remodeled and expanded the office space.  We are currently functioning in our new offices and our much larger production and distribution center.  

Luke 5:7 says, “And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.”  When Peter got involved with Jesus’ Kingdom business, Jesus got involved with Peter’s fishing business.  Peter’s harvest was so great that he had to ask his partners to help him catch his boat-sinking load of fish!  I can imagine Jesus shouting just as much as those men did because it gave Him pleasure to see His partners blessed when they did what He said to do.

We are letting you in on a TWO net-breaking, boat-sinking opportunity!  FIRST of all, our next project that we are working on is setting up our very first TV studio at the new offices.  About a month ago we launched out with our brand new daily television broadcast.  With the increase of the television outreach, it will be necessary to spend a lot more time in the studio filming new programs.  We are so excited about this and believe it will make the Word of God available to more people than ever before.  We recently purchased 3 new cameras and are already filming programs for the daily broadcast.  You, as a partner, can help us finish our new television studio that will help us distribute the Gospel into many languages in many nations!  

The SECOND opportunity is to partner with us for our Spirit of Faith Conference in Nepal.  We will be bringing in 100 pastors by special invitation for 4 power-packed days of the Word of God and the move of the Holy Spirit.  We will be paying for the travel, lodging, and food of these pastors, as well as distributing books in their language.  Our expenses for this conference in November will be over $30,000.  We believe it is worth the investment into these pastors and leaders in this country. 

Just like Peter needed the on-time help from his partners, we are calling for help from you.

Let them shout for joy and be glad, Who favor my righteous cause; And let them say continually, “Let the LORD be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”  Psalms 35:27

Get ready to shout, because if you’re partnering with God’s righteous cause, He is partnering with you, giving you the power to do His pleasure. He takes pleasure in your prosperity.


Many quote and claim the promise found in Philippians 4:19, “My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory.”  However, this promise is a blessing given to the Apostle Paul’s faithful partners in the Philippian church.  What made them so exceptional was their financial partnership with him.  He wrote to tell them in verse 15 (CEV), “…you were the only church that became my partner by giving blessings and by receiving them in return.”  These faithful partners gave more than once until Paul had more than enough.  Paul wanted them to expect a blessing.  “Not that I seek the gift itself, but I do seek the profit which increases to your (heavenly) account (the blessing which is accumulating for you,” Phil 4:16 (Amp).  Through financial partnership, they actually opened a “debit and credit account.” 

Philippians 4:15-19 is like a ticket that reads, “NOT VALID IF DETACHED.”  When you enter into partnership as they did in verse 15 you can claim the promise in verse 19, “And my God will liberally supply (fill until full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”


You, our MHM Partners, sent us to Brazil in September to deliver the Word to hundreds of pastors, ministers and leaders from five nations, including Angola (Africa).  We witnessed a mighty explosion of revelation and joy as they grasped the rich deposit of the Word and the Holy Spirit fell.  We also distributed our books that have been translated in Portuguese with these pastors and leaders. 

We ask that you pray about sowing a special seed for the conference in Nepal.  We are believing for 300 people to give $100 or more to sponsor these pastors and cover the cost of the conference.  Your offering of any amount will help us with this mission’s outreach.  Some of the most zealous and hungry pastors and leaders will gather in Kathmandu where there will be a download of the SPIRIT OF FAITH.  We will also distribute our books that we have translated in Nepal with all of these leaders.  There’s no telling where these books will travel and who will be transformed. 

WHEN YOU BLESS A PASTOR, YOU BLESS A CHURCH!  WHEN YOU BLESS A CHURCH, YOU BLESS A CITY.  WHEN YOU BLESS A CITY, YOU BLESS A NATION!  Your partnership is making this possible!  Thank you so much and we declare to our partners, “Our God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” 

In Christ,

Mark and Trina
