Jesus Name Austin? What are your plans?

OUR MISSION

The name “Jesus Name” was chosen for 2 reasons: 1)  because we want to focus on Jesus and 2) we want to represent Jesus. Too often other concerns, even good ones have eclipsed the worship and the representation of Jesus.  Lots of things are great. Service, maturity of character, and doctrine are great, interesting, often helpful. However, even those things, if they drown out the focus on praying, worshiping and following Jesus, become unhelpful or possibly even harmful and twisted.  “Jesus Name” makes us think of our authority in prayer. It makes us think of our ambassador ship for Christ. We represent people to God and God to people. We will start in the north Austin MSA. That is our mission; here are our plans.

Jesus Name prayer is full of faith; Jesus Name prayer is in authority; Jesus Name prayer is effective; Jesus name prayer will represent others to the Lord; Jesus name prayer is fun and joyful.

I have said, only half jokingly, that one day someone who is stoned is going to look up Jesus’ name in the phone book and get us. That guy or gal won’t be looking up the name of a denomination or church, but Jesus. I hope we can be ready and able to help on that day. Given the charge to go forth in Jesus’ Name, I pray we can represent Jesus well.

OUR PLANS – COME MEET WITH US

Until then, we need to prepare to represent Jesus by knowing more about  Him. To that end, we are going to study the Bible in our weekly meeting. For now, that is Sunday morning in Cedar Park.  We are studying some exclusive content from Kevin Zadai on Saturday evening 6:00-7:30. Yes, Zadai has a lot of content online, but this content is available only to approved Warrior House Churches. If you are interested in learning more about spiritual things, contact me for the place. We also hope to become in reality a House of Prayer. Robert Henderson’s definition of a House of Prayer is a group in covenant with God and with each other who can represent cultures to God, or in other words, pray effectively on larger matters than individual and family.  If you want to know more about that, please read Henderson’s books and join with us in his midweek services 7:00p CT Radiant Church, M-Th daily prayer 6:20a online or on GPEC.world app.)  We also join with Pastors Drs. Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda’s prayer meeting Friday evening 6:30pET online at ChavdaMinistries.org.

So, whether you want to join virtually or be part of the real community face to face Saturday and Sundays, please join us. (Sunday meetings will be in alignment with GPEC/Robert Henderson but that does not mean we will teach ONLY on the Courts of Heaven. See lots of books here. )

Being a true mature, serving Christian is like being a priest: you represent God to people and people to God. In other words, you put people in touch with God. That has always been my idea of what ministry should be.

CURRENT PLANS TO SERVE

Our plans are to engage in some one on one evangelism, again now with the theme of prayer. We will ask others if they wish us to pray for them, what they wish prayed for, and would they like us to do it on the spot. Then, if they are interested, they can be invited to the meetings or be given information on this website. So, there is no control, no pushiness, no “micro-aggression” — just service and a demonstration of love. Giving what we have. If you would like to join in that endeavor, please contact me.

PLANS FOR THE FUTURE

In  the farther future, we hope to have a cross congregational, interdenominational H of P for leaders, but we are going to be sure our house is in order, and we are more strongly knowlegable about the prayer protocol for that. I mention this future hope in case you are very interested in politics or governmental matters, and are hoping for an opportunity like this. I have been looking for 15 years here, because some friends do this in another city. Alas. Apparently some strong spiritual resistance to this.  However, if this is your interest, then you need to be getting up to speed on the House of Prayer protocols that Jesus Name Austin is learning about. Get online and learn from Henderson/GPEC and contact us. Be sure you have the basics covered and are known to us.

Time to Pray, Seriously.

As I learn more about what is going on, I see it is not just mere stupidity. It is very serious. Deception. To enslave.
Please try to rouse yourself from sleep and start really praying. Pray what? Wheels off the chariots. Church arising, filled with Holy Spirit to the max. Pray for everyone around you, your family and everyone. Pray their eyes are opened. Pray they make Jesus their Lord and their Savior.
Then, I recommend you witness to them. Other kinds of teaching, until after being born again, might be fruitless. Listen to the leading of the Lord. Use your faith to get the gift of faith, to hear well, and for salvations.

The Pentecost Project – Be in It

Here a good explanation of the project for us all after the empowerment of Pentecost:

Cities erupt and fires ignite as we enter Pentecost Sunday and God raises up Heavens FIRE WALL! Watch as Gods army receives new commissions and field promotions. (LIP SYNC is OFF! Make believe I’m a foreign film.)

Posted by Lance Wallnau on Saturday, May 30, 2020

“one accord” trumps “spirit of offence” ; fire of Holy Spirit versus igniting of hate and lawlessness

(btw) we did have a multi-ethnic meeting Sunday. And more to come.

Also:

Lance had a webinar Sunday, well advertised and with other speakers. Facebook blocked my share for one and then another reason. Apparently it was against their “community standards) (a term invented to show the limit against porn) because the title mentioned Christianity and the picture was of the flag.

Folks, we can’t depend upon Facebook and the like. We need to use this website. Even this website is withstanding attacks. Anyway, come here for announcements, and recos.

Chariot Wheels Falling Off

We had difficulties with Zooming today.
So, I recorded the meeting, pretty much like it would have been had we met via Zoom.
This won’t stay up … gone now.

BTW, very happy that my theme has been verified prophetically. Other, bigger “men of God” have been referring to the chariot wheels coming off. Praise God .. So good to not only protect us but to speak to us… and consistently so. And so very important in this hour. Thank you, Lord!

We will have words and pix with the music from now on when using Zoom. Sorry for that lack before. BTW, discovered that our problems Sunday were because of a glitch that Zoom had. Oh my! on Sunday? Guess we had better pray for tech and for tech protection.

Hoping to be back live on Pentecost Sunday. That is May 31. Hope it will be a potluck party. Stay tuned for an announcement.
Then after that, hoping for personal evangelism.

LEADERSHIP – The Way We Do Things Here

Good leaders feed the sheep, watch over their souls, and mature the saints for more ministry and for growth into being like Jesus.

Most pastors in regular churches strive to develop a stable sheep base, so they have money for their infrastructure. Sure, many hope to actually teach some Bible along the way. But this pattern makes ministry really about placating people’s flesh, so they don’t stop giving. This model wastes a lot of time, hoping to do ministry somewhere sometime hopefully.

By contrast, we hope to develop more shepherds. If one is developing leadership in others, then one must deliver loving correction some times. One must always watch to see if lessons are learned, if tests are passed. One must rigorously lead by doing the best, hearing the best, teaching the best one can. Without this, people are not maturing and not being made ready for leadership. If the people don’t want this, they are not ready to prepare for leadership. They are not really even walking the Christian walk.

Tests for leadership don’t always come in the same order, but here are some very basic ones.
1. Work. You get to lead, or even have a say, only if you are working for the group.
2. Fulfilling the commitments you made. If you can’t do this, you are not reliable. You are not a leader. This goes along with telling the truth.
3. Being coordinative rather than rebellious. There is a place for leadership, so there is a place for respect and working with others, especially in the agreement upon direction.
4. Being civil, respectful, honoring.
5. Learning. How much should a teacher lavish attention on a student who refuses to learn?
This includes just plain being lazy lazy lazy. You were not meant for decoration.
This includes the full cup syndrome, that is, thinking you a lot, but showing you don’t.
This is related to avoiding the demons of division and strife — who often manifest as religious spirits and often get all caught up in nonsensical details.

Everything is a lesson. Everything is a test. Just because no one says anything to you, doesn’t mean they don’t know what you did; it doesn’t mean you got away with it.
We have already seen an amazing amount of spiritual warfare for such a little group. Just because you are the one scandalized, doesn’t mean you are the most right, the most holy. Often it means you are the most demonized. Don’t be scandalized; instead, be delivered, be healed, and be taught.

We know that given our mission and design, we will attract those who want to be leaders, but haven’t been in the past. This can be a place that will heal the wounds, fill in the holes, and cast out the demons. I hope this will help. Only you can make the decisions.

A New and More Biblical Prosperity Gospel — A Call to Commitment to Assignment

Studying Haggai. There we are in endtime prophecy. The Lord calls the church to repentance, because it has been building its own house and not his.
This is a new and clearly Biblical prosperity teaching. God would like to bless your house, but can’t if you aren’t building His.
There are a lot of people God has called to leadership. But there are leadership tests that need to be passed. Without a commitment to learn, it is pretty hard to be a Christian. Without commitment to work, you are not a leader. Without a commitment to pull together, you can’t be on a team of leaders.
And yes, sure, there are wounds of previous top leaders who didn’t deploy you, but there needs to be a commitment to healing, too. Come to the Lord.
It is a call to commitment, my friends.

Merry Christmas and blessed new year

Merry Christmas!

We are under orders LOL from Pastor Mahesh to wallow in Christmas! I saw one of those Christmas movies for the first time. I hear he likes them. Wow! it was heart warming. So nice. If you are alone, do that. And then see, you will want to give cookies or go out to eat with someone else. We need to learn how to love.

Blessed new year to you too. The word I gave on my Learning Disabilities podcast and will give on my Friday night prayer meeting (Facebook on Promoting God’s Kingdom (not my page)) is 2020. This will be a year when whatever you are looking at you should be seeing more clearly. This is a blessing, an encouragement, and also an admonishment to go DO something about it.

Hope we see your face soon. We are learning how to love. Calling in people who want to be formed as a disciple of Jesus. (You know, don’t you, that calling means going out, too? Those disciples of Jesus became his Apostles. That is the way it works.)

Love and blessings.

What We Would Like to Do

1. Love people – really. So, rather than programmatic stuff, I envision home groups where we do relationships.

2. Authentic worship. We have enough concerts, but we need some real praise and worship. It might take some courage; it might take some healing. Whatever it takes, let’s have it.

3. Discipleship/Personal Development/Spiritual Maturity — meaning really becoming the people we want to be to be good friends, good parents, and standup contributors in whatever walk of life we are in. Let it not be published in Gath that the shamans interviewed on podcasts look like they are ahead of the church here. Discipleship is not an Inquirers’ Class; it is not a Connect Group. It is living out your maximum, no-limits destiny in God that wants to deploy you in the most awesome ways. It is also death-to-(lower)self and alive in God, risen & seated with Him. it is actually doing stuff!
