Receiving from the Apostolic Grace – Part 1

Posted: October 16, 2013 in Foundation on Apostle/ Apostolic

One of the great grace of the Apostolic is the Advancment of the Kingdom of God. When a believer of Jesus Christ got the heart of Advancing the Kingdom of God, that’s an Apostolic heart and Apostolic mentality. Everyone in the Body of Christ and in the Kingdom of God need to have the heart of Advancing the Kingdom.

Apostolic Anointing:

Everyone can receive the Apostolic anointing upon them, and should receive the Apostolic anointing upon them, even though that may not make them Apostle, and as for the Apostles, their purpose in life is to Advance the Kingdom of God, and they are Kingdom driven. And it’s also important to know that we do not need to be an Apostle to Advance the Kingdom of God, everyone who said, “Jesus is Lord” can Advance the Kingdom of God, and all believers of Jesus Christ need to have Apostolic mentality, Apostolic heart and Apostolic anointing upon them. When the Apostolic anointing come upon you, you will have a desire to Advance the Kingdom of God.

What does receiving the heart of Advancing the Kingdom produced ?

When You have the heart of Advancing the Kingdom of God, the heart and nature of Advancing the Kingdom itself will give you more Supernatural Boldness and courage from the Lord, the heart of Advancing the Kingdom of God will give you more faith and a value for God’s abilities “God is able, we are able, we can do it“.

The Apostolic anointing coming upon Joshua:

Joshua got a mentality and a heart that says, “It is possible, we can do it”: Moses sent 12 men to spy in Canaan, when everyone else said, “They will not be able to enter Canaan, it is impossible”, Caleb said, “WE CAN CERTAINLY DO IT”. But Joshua and Caleb were filled with faith, they tore their clothes and said, “We are able”, “We can do this”, “Nothing is Impossible”, and said “Do not rebel against the Lord”. While all the other spies sees as something impossible to do and spread bad report about the land they had explored. But Joshua and Caleb got faith and sees it possible, their heartbeat said, “It is possible, we can do this, it is certainly possible, we CAN certainly do this” that’s an Apostolic anointing upon them.

(The whole assembly talked about stoning them)

Then the Glory of the Lord appeared at the Tent Meeting to all the Israelites. The Lord said to Moses, “How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me,……….” (Numbers 13-14)

Vision of Extension, vision for Moving forward, vision for Advancement: God gave Joshua a promise and a vision, that their territory will extend.

I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Mediterranean Sea in the west.” (Joshua 1:3-4)

That’s an apostolic anointing coming upon Joshua.

Joshua was Bold and Courageous: Joshua was already bold and courageous, was already filled with faith and God’s abilities when God encourage him to be strong and be very courageous. We can know this because, when all others were afraid and not willing to enter Canaan, they encouraged the others and the people not to be discouraged, not to be afraid, and that they CAN DO IT.

And when he was about to lead the Israelites, God kept on telling him to “Be strong and be very courageous”, God told him 3 different times to be strong and courageous. God imparted Joshua more Boldness and Courage, and that’s part of the Apostolic Anointing coming upon Joshua.

Some benefits of receiving from the Apostolic grace –

When we listen to Apostolic messages, apostolic preaching or teaching, we will receive the heart of Advancing the Kingdom of God. If we got no vision, there will be grace for casting new visions from the Lord for our missions and works. We will have the heart of moving forward, we will have more Supernatural boldness and courage, more value for God’s abilities and more faith for our visions, missions and works.

Get a vision, take actions:

Now, if you got a heart for Advancing the Kingdom of God, you’ve got to have a vision, ask the Lord to give you a vision for His Kingdom coming on this earth. If you got a vision, you’ve got to take actions.

1. What’s in your heart ?
Psalm 37:4 – Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.

What’s in your heart that you want to do for the Kingdom of God? Dream big, you might start small or big, but dream big, what you want to see for the Kingdom of God?

Even if you start small, “Do not despise the small beginnings, for THE LORD REJOICES to see the works begin”. (Zech 4:10)

2. If you got a vision or visions, take action:
Do whatever you can do to fullfill that vision, have faith and trust in the Lord for your vision and dreams, believe that the Lord will be helping you. Work hard, be constant, persevere if needed and stay focus.

Your Kingdom Come, your will be done, as in Heaven So on earth.

Until Christ come back, we need to Advance the Kingdom of God in all areas and arenas of life, the Kingdom of God needs to Advance till Christ come back.
