The Church must rise up and minster to the World from an overflow. From the 3 ½ years of Jesus' earthly ministry, and from the early Church; they ministered from an overflow of the anointing and presence of God. In the times we are living in, we must minister from an overflow. We cannot afford to just give nice sermons that tickle the ears of the hearers. It is no longer time for dry cleaning types of services. In by 9 and out by 10; with an open song, offertory, a quote from the reader's digest, and the benediction.
The World is faced with real problems and an onslaught of the devil and evil people. Words are not enough, but it requires a demonstration of the Spirit and power of God. The Church was born in the Fire of God, and its ministry was a result of an overflow of this anointing. It was that anointing and presence of God that attracted the people.
This course is designed to help you to understand and minister out from an abundant overflow. God is waiting to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that you can ask, think, hope, or desire; according to the power that is at work within you.
God does not change. He upholds all things by the word of his power. Our ministry should be on that same level. It is form an overflow of his life and nature that resides in us. It is what will impact the world; His presence and power should be felt by others through us.
Make sure you take all the time you need to read through the notes and look up all the scriptures. Also, watch the videos embedded in the course and do all the required reading. It is designed to strengthen your resolve in the face of circumstances that may say otherwise.
