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.
