God’s plan for mankind (AUDIO)

Walking without an understanding of God’s master plan is like groping through the darkness with no aim, goal, or enduring vision in life.

The audio class below (taught in Diepsloot) is the beginning of a series dedicated to revealing God’s master plan for mankind as stated in the Bible.  When you understand this, you’ll find yourself in a better position to live and take your position as a son of God — fulfilling the “job description” of exercising dominion and authority against all that would cause pain and destruction.  You’ll be equipped with understanding how God intends YOU to be a catalyst for change in this world.

“The heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to mankind.” (Psalms 115:16)

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”” (Genesis 1:27–28)

what is man that You remember him, the son of man that You look after him? 5 You made him little less than God and crowned him with glory and honor. You made him lord over the works of Your hands; You put everything under his feet:” (Psalms 8:4–6 HCSB)

Walk as God’s ambassador & demonstrate His Kingdom (AUDIO)

All believers are ambassadors for God (2 Cor. 5:20-21), and as such He’s endued us with all we need (Himself) to accurately represent His Kingdom.

“Now the church is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.” (Ephesians 1:23)

By our actions, we are called to demonstrate the Kingdom of God, thus enabling people to understand the love, mercy, and goodness of God.

“Whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you. And heal the sick there, and say to them, “The kingdom of God has come near to you.’” (Luke 10:8–9)

Not only are we ambassadors, but we are soldiers engaged in a spiritual war.  A cursory glance at the world around us makes it clear — a battle between good and evil is being waged.  As God’s representatives, we’re at the forefront of expectation in the mind and heart of God (Rom. 8:20), that we will put to use all He’s given and equipped us with — that people may be set free “from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God” (Romans 8:21)

Sweet older man – eyes healed (VIDEO)

While walking between the shacks of Diepsloot I saw this sweet older man (in the video above) sitting on his bench. When asking if there’s anything we could pray for he said he couldn’t see very well. Things were blurry, he couldn’t see many things that were close, or far, etc.

In the name of Jesus, His eyes were restored after prayer and we gave him a Gospel of John which he read the title from (he couldn’t do this before). He was also admiring the homes and hills in the distance which he couldn’t see before.

There’s actually many people getting touched, healed, discovering God, etc… but once in a while I take a video.  Last Saturday a woman could barely see out of her eyes … she was set free as well.

So nice to see not only physical restoration, but the hope and love that is born in their soul as a result of knowing God loves and cares about them.

Diepsloot men healed – “Now I believe!” (VIDEO)

A couple of them just couldn’t believe what God did for them… they didn’t believe that God could or would heal them (out of joint fingers, three years of back and hip pains, shoulder injuries, etc.) — then they experienced it — and found faith and experienced a paradigm shift as a result. The love of God triumphs once again, and people discover He’s real and loves them. In the midst of the spiritual and physical poverty of Diepsloot, a bright light is shining — God’s love.
