Credit: Living Streams Church, Bangkok Matthew 10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be Ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. 17: But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagagues; 18: And ye shall be brought befor governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. 19: But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak; for it shallbe given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. 20: For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which which speakwth in you. 21: And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death. 22: And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. When the Commission of Jesus which Hegave a more comprehensive one in Matthew 28 is contained powerful words of wisdom and exhortation to endure right to the End. The reward awaiting those who will keep on being faithful witnesses of Kingdomof God and the glory and power that comes with it is that be saved. In His Second Coming often referred as the Day of the Lord. He exhorted us with a very interesting word that we should be wised as serpents and innocent as doves in the way we should go about the Kingdom Business of discipling cities and nations. Why? Because we are being sent out as sheep among wolves! With the Lion of Judah living inside us, we will certainly be triumphant now and through the End of age. Amen.

The LORD answered Moses, "Go on ahead of the people and take some of the elders of Israel with you. Take the staff you struck the Nile with in your hand and go. I am going to stand there in front of you on the rock at Horeb, when you hit the rock, water will come out of it and the people will drink."
Credit: Living Streams Church, Bangkok Matthew 8:8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. 9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh, and to my servant, Do this , and he doeth it. 10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that folled, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so greath faith, no, not in Israel! Matthew 15:28 Then Jsuss answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was mad whole from the very hour. There are only two persons in the gospels that Jesus gave the highest compliment of possessing great faith that He could not find in Israel and this is truly astounding. From the heritage of the father Abraham, we would expect at least one to qualify to have great faith but Jesus found none. Instead, He encountered people of great faith from the most unexpected places and backgrounds. What do these people have in common that sparked faith in them which caused them to receive the miracle they so need? First of akk, they were asking not for themselves but their servant and daughter. Both have love - enough to cause them to further humble themselves to cross cultural and social status barriers to enounter Jesus. Secondly, they were not Jews - perhaps not burdened by the religios baggage that so often somthered faith. But there is more! Both had a revelation of Jesus that propelled them to a face to face encounter with Jesus that resulted in their great faith being rewarded with receiving their miracles. What was this revelation and how cn you have it too? Pay close attention to this sermon as Pastor Kang Send will preach on Revelation that Sparks Great Faith!

And he has appointed some with grace to be apostles, and some with grace to be prophets, and some with grace to be evangelists, and some with grace to be pastors, and some with grace to be teachers. And their calling is to nurture and prepare all the holy believers to do their works of ministry, and as they do this they will enlarge and build up the hold of Christ.
Credit: Living Streams Church, Bangkok Matthew 7:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, have we not prophesised in th y name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Rom 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? The first shocking Truth that Jesus impacted the religious people of his day was that God is His Father! To the Jews, this concept of God was both foriegn and ridiculous. But for Jesus, it was so fundamental as it will define how we worship, walk with Him, pray and minister. Ministry is not us trying to help God! Ministry is an outflow of oue initimate relationship with our Father which Jesus exemplified so beautifully. Whenwe possess both a conceptual and experiential understanding of God as our Father, we will begin to do what Jesus said we should - Ask Him! He compares what a imperfect earthly father will do for his children when they ask to the perfect Father in Heaven. How much more will the perfect, loving heavenly father gives to His childrenwhen they ask Him. Ask Him in everything - in life, business and ministry. He will give more than we can ask and He has been waiting to give them to you. We do not have to strive but to receive as we ask in faith for He is the perfect Father. Amen.
