Jesus Marketing Plan!

Matt 8:1 ¶ When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.

As I work in ministry, how tempting it is to start networking, and knocking on doors to get speaking engagements, because truly, the Word of God burns within me, like a fire shut up in my bones!

Yet, instead, I have chosen Jesus method of public ministry, spending the needed hours quietly with my Father, praying, listening, and worshipping, so that I allow Him to open doors for my gift…He will do this for any of us, if we come away, come up the mountain, and spend the time needed in prayer.

Joshua 6:27 So the Lord was with Joshua, and his fame spread throughout the land.

He will be with you, in your ministry, your business, your promotion, if you are seeking Him first, and His leading, timing, and way of doing things.

After prayer and fasting, and clear miracles from heaven we read in  Luke 4:14 “And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.”

Again we see our heavenly Father promoting Jesus here several verses later:

Luke 4:37 And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about.

When Jesus walked with our heavenly Father on the earth, even the king knew about it:

Matthew 14:1 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus

When we walk with our Father, in spirit-led obedience, there is an honor that comes from heaven, that will bring promotion that no amount of networking can produce.

The ways of the kingdom, are often contrary to the ways of the world:

John 12: 25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honor.

Walking correctly with heaven is supernatural!
Needs will be met, miracles will be wrought, and people will seek you out for a Word from heaven.

I believe this works not only in ministry, but also in business, in our day to day jobs. God sets up divine appointments, and opportunities for promotion, miracles, and people who need ministry, for it is written: Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Truly, we do have friends in high places, the highest – the throne of God Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
You Have Friends In High Places!
Let us live to please Him, and He will promote us His way, in His timing.

Let’s pray:
‘Father, I thank you for surrounding me with your favor, as with a shield. Thank you for grace, and intimacy with you today. I believe that you are opening doors for me, granting me favor, promotion, and fame, Your way. I choose to believe you are making a way for me, according to your perfect will, in Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen!’

The lips of the Righteous feed many!

Use your mouth and Words on purpose!

faith speaks

There is a verse in Proverbs that reads:
Pr 10: 21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom.

As most of you know I owned and operated a carpentry company for many years, and as the company grew, I realized my time was far better spent estimating and bidding work, collecting checks, managing projects, ordering materials, and fixing or getting tools on the right job, on time. (If you do Facebook, and want to see some cool pics of some of the projects we built, check out: https://www.facebook.com/Grace-Interior-Trim-LLC-244907400682/?fref=ts

One day at work, as I was blazing along on my cell phone, doing sales calls, setting appointments, ordering materials, and moving at incredible speed,  a bitter carpenter said to me: ‘Must be nice, you don’t even work any more, all you do is talk on that damn phone all day!”

Even though I was writing that man’s paycheck, I took a deep breath, and asked the Lord, what He thought about the man’s comment, because there is some truth, in what the man said: Construction is not for the faint hearted, you gotta bust a move to make stuff happen, because you only get paid, for what you get built, and you are constantly working yourself out of a job. The Scripture is plain: 2 Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat

When he said, ‘all you do is talk on the damn phone all day’ I was reminded of the verse:

Pr 14:23 In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.

Another version reads: Proverbs 14:23 Amplified Bible (AMP)
23 In all labor there is profit, but idle talk leads only to poverty.

work profit

Asked the Lord, if I was wasting time on the phone, when bold and loud Holy Spirit spoke to me: Pr 10: 21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom.

Lips of the righteous

I wasn’t using my phone for idle chit chat, but it was a weapon of war in my hand, as a seasoned leader.

Besides, I was serving Jesus, and had a covenant with God, and when I did a moral inventory of my work week vs this man’s I realized I worked far more hours, with far more stress and responsibility than that man could presently understand.

How much more, as a minister of the gospel! We have authority, anointing, and the very living word of God upon our lips, opening the door to heaven or hell in a person’s life as we preach God’s Word!

I take this responsibility extremely seriously!

God is not joking when we read: Pr 13:3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

words many transgress

Pr 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

I love the power of words! https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2015/02/05/let-your-spirit-free/

My words, spoken in authority in prayer over your life, mine, and my families, are destroying devilish plots against us, and producing acts of blessing, healing, miracles, revelation, wisdom, joy, peace, provision and prosperity in us, and our families!

word of fire

Though I now serve in full time ministry, and part-time construction, through prayer and the release of my confession of faith each day, My lips, still feed many.

So should yours!

Let’s Pray:
‘Father, set a watch on my lips, and grant me utterance in the Holy Spirit today, as we speak words of faith, power, deliverance, and blessing into the earth, enforcing your love, power, kingdom, truth, will and way in this generation, in your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen!”
