ACCURATE MODEL

Lesson Two

CLICK HERE! to listen to sermon now.

Once the CHURCH becomes ONE FLESH, are ONE ACCORD, having  ONE HEART and SOUL, built in ONE FAITH, buried  together in ONE BAPTISM, worshipping in ONE SPIRIT, moving as ONE BODY, gathered together in ONE PLACE, believing as ONE COMPANY and having ONE LORD, then the MATERIALS for an ACCURATE BUILDING has been given.

The CHURCH must be ESTABLISHED on the GOVERNING PRINCIPLES of the KINGDOM of GOD. This will bring forth the CHURCH to emerge STRONG. It will bring the LIFE OF THE KINGDOM to the Church, it will have  ACCURATE and HONEST LEADERSHIP and  It will stop the church from moving away from its ORIGINAL PURPOSE and MANDATE.

Hence EVERY CHURCH must be built in this way. The FOUNDATIONS that must be laid are :

1. IT MUST BE BUILT FOR THE PRESENCE OF GOD AND NOT FOR PERSONALITIES.(Ex 40:34)

The Church must be raised for ONE purpose only and that is to usher in the PRESENCE OF GOD. The main desire is to bring the ARK into the TENT. (1Chron 13:3-4)
The PRESENCE of God must find a place of REST amongst us and the right PATTERN will bring the GLORY of God down. ( Heb 8:5)

The Church cannot be built for man, it is not Paul’s or Apollos house but God’s House and It must be built according to the GRACE that God has given the Church. (1Cor 3: 10)
We cannot carry AMBITION, SELFISHNESS, SELF CENTEREDNESS and PRIDE as this will short circuit what God is doing in the House. Hence the Church must be built for GOD’S PRESENCE and not for MAN’S GLORY.

As a Church, we must constantly seek to BRING HIS PRESENCE DOWN, not relying on the PERSONALITY of the Pastor or Preacher.

How to bring the PRESENCE of God into the House: INTENSE WORSHIP.(all worshipping as ONE)

2. IT MUST BE BUILT ON THE PRINCIPLES OF GOD AND NOT THE PREFERENCE OF MAN.(Matt 21: 12-13)

The Church must not cater to the people’s NEEDS, or be SEEKER FRIENDLY but must always seek to the PRINCIPLES of God. We must not seek the people’s “ WATER LEVEL” but we must RAISE them to the LEVEL that the SPIRIT has placed in the Church.

There are 3 types of people in the Church(Mk 2: 18)

1)The DEAD MOVE-These are the Pharisees, people who INSIST in keeping the LAW.
2)The OLD MOVE-These are John’s Disciples, people who follow the MAN and not God.
3)The NEW MOVE-These are Jesus Disciples, people who move by the NEW COVENANT.

That is why it is important for the Church to keep PROGRESSING according to God’s MOVE. We cannot MOVE if these three moves remain in the House.

We must never COMPROMISE the WORD but ACT and CONTINUE in the WORD. We must not allow FALSE DOCTRINES of Man to rule the Church, but must allow the PURE WORD OF GOD, the APOSTLES DOCTRINE to rule the Church.

Once God’s PRINCIPLES through his WORD is established in the HOUSE then the people will be: BORN AGAIN, GROW  and,  Be PURIFIED and RENEWED by the WORD.. (Acts 2:37-42)

How to bring the PRINCIPLES of God into the House- By NOT COMPRIMISING on his WORD and acting on it as ONE..

3. IT MUST BE BUILT FOR GOD’S PURPOSES AND NOT FOR PROGRAMS.(Matt 21: 12-13)

God has a PARTICULAR PURPOSE for the church and we must ALIGN every PROGRAM to FULFILL this PURPOSE.

So many Churches have many programs that benefit the people but not fulfilling the PURPOSE OF GOD for the Church. The PURPOSE of God for this CHURCH of KTS is “IMPACTING THE CITY and TRANSFORMING THE NATION, so every Program that we have must be aligned to this PURPOSE.

All our PRIORITIES   and every ACTIVITY must align themselves towards this PURPOSE. All our teaching programs, feeding programs, social programs, spiritual programs must be TOWARDS fulfilling the DESTINY of this Church- changing OLD KLANG ROAD to NEW KLANG ROAD.

How to fulfil GOD’S PURPOSE: KNOW what has been put into this House and WORK IT OUT as ONE.

4. IT MUST BE BUILT TO DEVELOP PEOPLE AND NOT MAKE PROFIT.(Matt 21:12-13)

When Churches RAISE MONEY and not RAISE PEOPLE it is set for destruction. That is why most churches are geared towards the number of people it has and the issue of Tithes and offerings.

PEOPLE’S LIVES must be built up, not BUILDINGS. The Church must TRAIN GOD’S PEOPLE to be skilful, resourceful and equipped for “ EVERY GOOD WORK”.

The Church must align it’s people to FELLOWSHIPPING and STRENGTHENING each other.

The Church must TRAIN to SEND OUT it’s people to impact the territories around it and must BUILD it’s people to be RESPONSIBLE and OBEDIENT to the purpose of the Church.

The Church must DEVELOP it’s people to be STRONG, COURAGEOUS and VICTORIOUS.

The Church must RELEASE CITY TAKERS, GIANT KILLERS, INFLUENTIAL and HISTORY MAKERS, who will fulfil the DESTINY of the Church.

BUILD the people and the CHURCH will be BUILT.

How to BUILD PEOPLE up: By RECOGNISING their CALLING and GIFTING and RAISING them up as ONE.

5.  IT MUST BE BUILT ON THE PROPHETIC AND NOT ON THE PROJECTIONS.(Acts 6: 1-4)

The Church must be built for the FUTURE and not  what it will ACHIEVE. The FUTURE must be revealed to the Church. Every son and daughter of the Church must have a “ PROPHETIC INSIGHT” to the future that God has planned for the Church.
Those who cannot see the future, will not manage the church to progress it.

The PROPHETIC VOICE OF THE CHURCH will EXCITE the people,  MOTIVATE them to move out and on, RISE above their circumstances, Increase in their FAITH and SEE beyond our       “ walls of Jericho”.

PROJECTIONS produces RESULTS but the PROPHETIC leads you to your DESTINY.
How to bring in the PROPHETIC VOICE : By RECEIVING each PROPHETIC WORD said by the Prophet in the House and LIVING it out as ONE.

6.  IT MUST BE BUILT ON ACCURATE  PATTERNS AND NOT ON PROJECTS.(Acts 2: 42)

Churches are “ BUILT “ according to their “ DENOMINATIONAL PROJECTIONS” and so do not move onto the BEYOND.

The “PROPHETIC CHURCH” must be STRUCTURED by the “APOSTLOLIC DOCTRINE” that will lead to the IMPACTING and IMPARTING of the HOLY’S SPIRIT’S MANDATE to CONTAIN the PRESENCE OF GOD.

ACCURATE PATTERNS will allow the HOLY SPIRIT TO MOVE FREELY in the service. There will not be any hindrance to the free flowing of the Spirit. (Acts 2:1-4)

ACCURATE PATTERNS will release POWER and PRESENCE.

The  5 FOLD MINISTRY GIFTS will be released  and the people will be BUILT, EQUIPPED for Ministry when accurate patterns run the church.(Eph 4: 11-12)
GOD will add his DIMENSIONS and EMPOWER the Church. The Church will receive continuous SPIRITUAL IMPARTATION and will be able to TAP onto the Holy Spirit’s power.

How to build ACCURATE PATTERNS: By KNOWING what a PROPHETIC and APOSTOLIC CHURCH is all about and MOVING as ONE.

7.  IT MUST BE BUILT FOR GENERATIONS AND NOT JUST POSITIONS       (Ex 29: 6-9)

So many Pastors and Churches, raise up their people to continue when they are gone by giving them “POSITIONS” but a WELL ORDERED HOUSE will raise GENERATIONS to continue the work.

Such a Church will be built for ALL RACES and will have only ONE CULTURE and that is KINGDOM CULTURE, not Chinese, English or Tamil culture etc..

The TRANSFER of LEGACY will passed to the next generation. The FATHERS in the Church will raise up CHILDREN (SONS and DAUGHTERS)that will carry the DOMINAT ANOINTING of the House  into the next Generation.

The Church will move from GLORY to GLORY, GRACE to GRACE.
What God began with the Apostles will continue to the next generations and the next.
ACCURATE LEADERSHIP will be provided for in this kind of Church. (Acts 2: 42-43)

The Church must not confine itsl have the FINISHING GENERATION as their army marching onto the Father’s land, REALIGNING, READJUSTING and CONFIGIRING according to the MASTER’S WORD.
elf to the Ministry Gifts but must PROGRESS to greater heights into the POLITICAL and FINANCIAL fields.

A TRUE APOSTOLIC and PROPHETIC CHURCH wil
How to build the GENERATIONS to come: By  ACCEPTING the FATHER of the House and allowing him to birth us as SONS and DAUGHTERS.

This is what it means to have a Church as the ACCURATE MODEL.
ACCURATE MODELS will  be VISTORIOUS..
ACCURATE MODELS will  GO FORWARD..
ACCURATE MODELS will PROSPER.
ACCURATE MODELS will fulfil PURPOSE and MANDATE.

BUILDING AN UNUSUAL CHURCH (FROM ZERO TO HERO)

19th June, 2011

POWER OF ONE

Lesson One

The GREATEST FORCE IS BECOMING ONE.  The powers of the enemy cannot hold you back when you and the Father are ONE.
The most important prayer of Jesus was when he prayed for the CHURCH (Apostles) to be ONE just as Jesus and the Father are ONE.
That is why Jesus PRAYED that we be ONE. (Jn 17:21)
The church must RISE UP as ONE COMPANY  to stop the enemy at the Gates.
We must have the POWER of becoming ONE.
Pentecost came when ALL the apostles were in ONE PLACE, ONE ACCORD, ONE FAITH, ONE HEART, ONE VOICE hence when we become ONE the POWER of God will be released.
It does not matter how big your church is what matters is when you are ONE.
In the book of acts the disciples STOOD up with Peter and when he spoke they SPOKE as ONE.(Acts 2 : 14)
Gideon was given an army of 300 and when they went forth as ONE,  they defeated the army of one hundred thousand.(Judg 6 :16)
We must THINK as ONE so that everybody in the Church will PRAY as ONE, SING as ONE, ACT as ONE, DANCE as ONE. When you PUSH AS ONE then things will happen.
The PASTOR must bring his people to MOVE as ONE.
Gen 11: 1-3: The people had  ONE Language and ONE Speech. This means when we have ONE LANGUAGE(Language of the Spirit) and ONE SPEECH (One UNDERSTANDING) then there will be three things happening to us:

  1. We will BUILD.
  2. Make a NAME.
  3. We will RISE UP.

The POWER OF ONE will give us the capacity to RISE UP and whatever we PROPOSE TO DO will be established.
The danger of us rising up is that we can become like these people, who decided to make themselves par with God and that is why God took away their understanding and they were confused.
PRIDE will lead to CONFUSION.
However the POTENTIAL and the CAPACITY that we can have when we become as ONE is so powerful, that it can INFLUENCE THE CITY, IMPACT the NATION.
The MOST IMPORTANT PRAYER OF JESUS was when he prayed for his LEADERS and the CHURCH.
Jesus did not pray for the world but for THEM- THE CHURCH. (Jn 17: 9)
Then Jesus prayed for their ONENESS ( Jn 17 : 21)
It is this ONENESS that the CHURCH must become.
In order to become this kind of ONENESS THESE ten elements must be present:

  1. ONE FLESH :  “Therefore a man must leave his Father and Mother and be joined to his wife and they must become ONE FLESH” (Gen 2:24)

Just as a man and a woman when they are MARRIED become ONE, so also the Christian who is now “ married” into the BODY of Christ the Church,  they must DIE TO THEMSELVES and become as ONE. You cannot be an INDIVIDUAL in Church, just as you cannot be an        “ individual” in your marriage. This ONE FLESH,  both in marriage and in the Church will produce “ OFFSPRINGS”.

  1. ONE ACCORD: “They all continued with ONE ACCORD in prayer and supplication” (Acts 1:14)

The meaning of the word “ ACCORD” is being of ONE agreement, opinion and purpose. Hence when we gather as a BODY OF ONE, then we must be also in ONE ACCORD. This simply means there cannot be two different opinions, agreements or purpose but ONE. Three ropes JOINED together becomes A CHORD, so also when our opinion, agreement and purpose are aligned as ONE we have ONE ACCORD.

  1. ONE HEART/ONE SOUL:” Now the believers(Church) who were gathered were of ONE HEART and ONE SOUL  and they had all things in common” (Acts 4: 32)

The HEART is the center of LIFE and if the heart is dead then there is no life. As a church and a people, when we gather together there must be a coming together of our hearts which is the life source to becoming ONE. Hence to be of ONE HEART simply means that there is no separate lives in church but all believers LIVING TOGETHER for each other. ONE HEART then refers to individual lives becoming ONE LIFE. This will translate to our FEELINGS and DESIRES becoming ONE.
ONE SOUL means Our individual desires and feelings are now aligned to the ONE who makes us ONE. This means we all FEEL AS ONE. Joy will be each one’s joy, gladness will be each one’s gladness etc….

  1. ONE FAITH: “ For there is but ONE FAITH” (Eph 4: 5)

Many believers do not make for One faith, because believers can come together yet they might not have “one faith”. ONE FAITH simply means that our BELIEF is focussed and resting on the singular purpose of who God and Jesus is. When all of us BELIEVE TOGETHER in this “ COMMON FAITH” then that common faith becomes ONE FAITH. When the body of Christ has ONE FAITH in Him, then FAITH becomes the KEY that unlocks the miraculous  that unleashes the MIRACLES.

  1. ONE BAPTISM: “For by one Spirit, we were ALL BAPTISED in the ONE BODY. Whether Jews or Gentiles, whether slaves or free, have all been made to drink into ONE Spirit” (1Cor 12:13)

Belonging to the people of ONE FAITH, we are now BAPTISED INTO a baptism that is one in nature and truth. Hence all who are baptized in the fullness of the Trinity now enjoy the one Spirit that has been produced through the ONE BAPTISM. This ONE BAPTISM identifies us with Jesus as a ONE BODY having the ONE head. ONE BAPTISM will lead the church to express that ONE SPIRIT and the ONE CHRIST.

  1. ONE SPIRIT :  “There is one body and there is ONE SPIRIT” (Eph 4:4)

To be ONE SPIRIT simply means to have the SAME EXPRESSION of God from within. Whilst God expresses himself in different ways through the individual, having “ One Spirit” will lead all the individuals to express themselves as ONE, in their praying, singing and their presentations”> ONE SPIRIT will lead the Church top having ONE EXPRESSION of the Spirit.

  1. ONE BODY :  “For as the BODY is ONE and has many members, but all the members of that “One Body” being many are ONE BODY also in Christ” (1Cor 12:12)

The Church is made up of many members, with a varied of talents and giftings, yearnings and callings, yet because of our Baptism and Spirit we become ONE BODY. Every part of this body must function as ONE. Hence if the HEAD tells the body to move right then every part of that body must align themselves to move “right”. When the Church becomes “ ONE BODY” then there is no contention and division and every one will MOVE IN ONE DIRECTION, do things as ONE.

  1. ONE PLACE: “And they were all gathered into ONE PLACE” ( Acts 2:1)

A scattered army cannot win a war, hence the “army of believers” must GATHER together in ONE PLACE. There is a “ designated place” given by God for his “ Presence” to be made manifest. Jacob came to “Bethel” and that was God’s designated place for him to see the presence of God. So also we have a “ designated place” for his presence to be made manifest, and when we gather as ONE BODY in that designated place that that place from a “ certain place” become that ONE PLACE.

  1. ONE COMPANY :  “ Then God said by the 300 men who lapped, I will save you and deliver your enemies into your hands.”(Judg 7:7)

Gideon had an army of 32 thousand, yet God chose only 300. Jesus had 12 disciples and they changed the whole world. In every Church  there is that “ Chosen set” of people that God wants to use and hence it is not in the numbers that God wants but a people who are TOTALLY SOLD OUT to his PURPOSES.

Many Christians are “ sold out” for God only to complete their own plans and purposes. However God has set the Church apart to be that “ COMPANY OF PEOEPLE” that will drive back the forces of evil and advance the Kingdom of God.
ONE COMPANY refers to God’s CHOSEN VESSELS who have been “ selected” by God who are willing to do things according to HIS WAY not our way. ONE COMPANY of people refers to a people with the same mind and heart to so the LORD’S WILL and not theirs.

  1. ONE LORD :  “And the LORD shall be King over all the earth in that day it shall be- the LORD IS ONE and his NAME IS ONE” (Zech 14:9)

To be a true Christian there has to be ONE LORD in our lives. So many of us have so many    “ Lords, who lord over us”. Our Jobs can be our lord, our relationships can be our lord, our finances, health, families etc…. can be the “ many Lords” who take control of our lives. There is a DAY COMING that we will and must have ONE LORD for his NAME is ONE that is RULER and KING of our lives. Any other Lord in our life will divide us and the POWER OF BEING ONE will not materialize in our lives.

Hence the POWER OF ONE must first start in our OWN PERSONAL LIFE.
As a couple we must be ONE.
As a Church we must be ONE.
As a Home we must be ONE.
As a Nation we must be ONE.
Until the LORD IS ONE and his NAME is ONE we will never be ONE.
