March 2020 - Redemption Realities

REDEMPTION REALITIES

If you are not impressed with who you are and what you have In Christ, then you have not seen Him lately.  Jesus is Lord and Master of all.  When He arose from the dead, He said, “All power in Heaven and earth is given unto me.” He has conquered death in all its phases, sin and all its consequences, Satan and all of his works…and we are In Him.  The Apostle Paul uses the phrases: “In Christ, In Him, and In Whom” over 130 times in his letters.  God did In Christ what He wanted to do in every man.  When God raised Jesus from the dead, we were raised up together with Him.  When He sat down, we sat down with Him. God saw us In Christ.  In the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, God was working In Christ, but He was not working on Christ.  He was working on us!  God was working on us In Christ.  In Him we are made new creatures.  In Him we are made righteous.  In Him we are redeemed. God saw us there on the cross with Jesus.  God saw us there made alive In Him.  However, it does not do us any good unless we can see ourselves In ChristWe look a whole lot better In Him than we do outside of Him.

LET GOD CHANGE YOUR IDENTITY

Jesus did not go through the agony of Gethsemane and the cruel crucifixion just to help us a little bit. What happened in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ has changed everything.  Therefore, if any man be in Christ he is a new creature, old things are passed away, behold all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).  Everything becomes new In Christ.  Jesus changes everything.  Nothing is the same.  Everything is different.  You are such a “new” person In Christ that you will have to let God introduce you to your new self.  We are not the same person.  We have a new identity.  In Christ, we are not just a forgiven sinner, but a new creature.  We must have a God-given change of identity to reach our God-planned destiny.  Abraham, Sarah, Jacob, Gideon, Peter and Paul are a few people who experienced that change.  However, God is still changing people and fulfilling destinies today.

In his book, The Life of Paul, James Stalker states: “Paul’s letters contain the thoughts that Jesus carried away from this world unuttered. They are the advanced teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  That must mean that Ephesians, Colossians and Romans also contain red letters.”  Paul’s letters are the post-resurrection teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.  The successful Christian must spend the majority of their time studying the epistles where we find the revelation of who we are and what we have In Christ.  From here, we go on to further revelation concerning the four gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

P.C. Nelson declared that “No great preacher has arisen to bless the people of God who has not lighted his torch at the flame kindled by Paul,” (The Letters of Paul). As true as that statement is, we do not have to be a preacher to light our torch at the flame kindled by Paul.  Paul was writing to believers.  Every believer can be on fire with the revelation of Christ.  The Holy Spirit today is faithful to teach us the things of Christ (John 16:12-15).  The Holy Spirit takes all that Christ has done for us and makes it a reality in us.  He will show us the picture of us In Christ and paint that picture on the canvas of our mindThe Holy Spirit takes what Jesus Christ has done for us and translates it into personal victory. 

 HOLD FAST TO YOUR CONFESSION

As a believer, it is now your responsibility to hold fast to your confession of who you are In Christ.  DON’T LET IT SLIP!  Your faith confession creates realities.  God sees you In Christ.  The Holy Spirit will help you to see how God sees you.  Remember, you look a lot better In Christ than you do outside of Him.  Check out these scriptures: 2 Cor. 5:21, 2 Cor. 2:14, Col. 1:12-14, Col. 2:9, 10, Eph.1:3, Eph.2:10, Romans 3:24, and Romans 8:2. You are looking better already!

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 MHM MISSIONS 

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,
