099.5: Don’t Be a Sheep! Be a Killer Sheep (Godspeed! Episode)

November 12, 2019

We have too much of a "follow culture" in too much of the Contemporary Church World. A hyped emphasis on sheep-identity shrouds much of our identity as Kingdom Agents. Advance to an ambassador mentality. A warrior status. Mark yourself as a Killer Sheep -- bad to the bone!

Women, it's time to experience your full place in God's story! The reality is that the community of the Godhead has designed humanity in the image of God ... fashioned in both female and male. If we're going to bear the image of God well in the earth, it will be more accurately expressed in both genders. What's at stake? Dominion. We're commissioned as Vice-Regents under King Jesus -- reStoried to partner in the Royal Storyline.

070: Why Is the Church So Shattered with Fiefdoms? - Craig Greatman

070: Why Is the Church So Shattered with Fiefdoms? - Craig Greatman

April 30, 2019

Craig Greatman -- pastor, Harley Davidson rider, Doctorate of Divinity candidate -- wonders why the Church is so shattered with fragmented fiefdoms. Are we adoring the icons of our own "Churchianity" cubbyholes? A miserly "meism" cannot experience the authentic Church that Christ is building.

054: There’s a “Lid” Over Your Life Without the Right Kingdom Relationships - Jason Howard

054: There’s a “Lid” Over Your Life Without the Right Kingdom Relationships - Jason Howard

February 12, 2019

We think that Kingdom-real, life-giving relationships are so vital, there's a "lid" over areas of our life without them. It's above and beyond attending church services -- what is Jesus building? And what gives Satan a killer panic attack? We think we're on to something innovative. Are your Kingdom relationships too safe and boring? Most likely.

032: Apostolic DNA: The Word (Minisode 11:25) — Apostolic Christ-Followers Series, No. 8

032: Apostolic DNA: The Word (Minisode 11:25) — Apostolic Christ-Followers Series, No. 8

October 4, 2018

The DNA of the Church is Apostolic Christianity. DNA contains genetic information. When it's turned on, that information is expressed.

One of the key aspects of Apostolic DNA is an emphasis upon the Word or Kingdom teaching. "They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer" (Acts 2:42 NASB).

Authoritative teaching is an outflow of Jesus' Great Commission in Matthew 28: "... teaching them to observe all that I commanded you."

029: Apostolic DNA (Minisode 8:59) — Apostolic Christ-Followers Series, No. 7

September 20, 2018

DNA contains genetic information or instructions. In a healthy organism, the DNA gets "turned on" and expressed. The design of the DNA will manifest unless there is a mutation or disease which suppresses the accurate expression of the DNA. In the history of Christianity, error and negative dynamics have been introduced which have worked against "Apostolic Christianity." But many believe that the Holy Spirit is restoring what Jesus envisions throughout the world today.

Takeaways:

  • Thank God that you’ve been born again by the word or seed of God. DNA.
  • Ask the Holy Spirit to fully turn on and express the DNA of the Kingdom ... Apostolic Christianity.

026: The Antioch Dynamic: Prioritize Ministry to the King (Minisode 15:16) — Apostolic Christ-Followers Series, No. 6

026: The Antioch Dynamic: Prioritize Ministry to the King (Minisode 15:16) — Apostolic Christ-Followers Series, No. 6

September 6, 2018

Apostolic Christ-Followers prioritize ministering TO the King. Then they minister FOR the King. Our representation of the King is sourced and sustained in our ministering to the King in worship, prayer, and fasting. The experience of early Christians at the church in Antioch (Acts 13:1-3) is a pattern and precedent for us today. The Antioch Ekklesia activated and powered the missionary journeys of Paul.

007: Ekklesia — Jesus Said He Would Build What? Part 2 with Hope Taylor

June 26, 2018

Is the Holy Spirit restoring the church today? Something closer to what Jesus really meant when he said, “I will build my Ekklesia” … a Kingdom community of Christ-followers who bring heaven’s culture into all spaces and places? If the Church is vital to the Big Story that God is pursuing -- as vital as the New Testament claims -- then we really can’t afford to get this wrong.
