Payne to the office of Bishop. Bishop Payne is the founder and pastor of New Birth Full Gospel Ministries of Baton Rouge, La. He is a man who has proven himself to be an exceptional shepherd for God’s church. He has committed his life to seeking out, drawing in and caring for the people of God.

He truly cares about the souls of God’s people and he does all that he can to ensure that each person takes their rightful place in the Kingdom of God. Most importantly, Bishop Payne sets a godly example for members to follow. The lambs and sheep are able to follow the man of God as he follows Christ. Bishop Payne is the publisher of the oldest African-American newspaper in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He is the Vice-President of The Louisiana Black Publisher’s Asossication, The President of the North Baton Rouge Economic Development Cooperation. Bishop

Friendly fire is a Military term used to describe that one, has been shot by its own comrade(s). In the Body of Christ there’s friendly fire going on. We’re firing shots at one another over scriptures, opinions, titles etc. It’s a trick of the enemy for us to waste our ammunition on one another, instead of us aiming at him.

While the Generals are Transitioning, Is the Church Sleeping?

I

t is IMPERATIVE that the Body of Christ take note of the Generals who the Lord is allowing to transition into glory for their well-deserved rest! I think sometimes we take their leadership and presence for granted thinking they’ll always be here; the Bible says it like this: “I won’t tarry with you always”....; like the way I use to think about my late Grandmother. She was a staple in our family, I never knew life without Grandma until she was called Home to Glory some twelve

“Black Pearls” by Psalmist Doris Stokes

years ago, but I DO remember the things that she taught me. This is why it is VITALLY important that we value them while they YET live, learn all we can under their leadership and ready ourselves to step in to our dimension once God releases them from earth to Glory. We must cease all of this bickering and jockeying for position & attention in the Body of Christ. It is important to learn how to SERVE under someone in leadership before you can be an effective leader yourself. Mentorship is lacking BIG TIME in the Kingdom because instead of others attempting to leave a legacy that may carry on for generations to come and plant some much needed seeds into others, many are more interested in being the “next big” preacher, teacher, prophet, singer, etc. We have got to rid ourselves from this selfish mentality that this ministry walk is about US

when those of us who serve SHOULD be the main ones looking to serve with our lives in whatever manner will allow God to gain the most glory from our beings. God allows the powerful ministry gifts of these Anointed men & women of God but only for a SEASON; in order to teach us and lead us into all TRUTH and to carry on the mantle and work once they are gone. I miss them dearly, appreciate those that I’ve gotten to know and are getting to know now and appreciate the love, prayers and service they have given over the course of their lives for and toward the Body of Christ. You will be GREATLY missed but NEVER forgotten.... Bishop Kenneth Moales, Sr., Bishop Walter Hawkins, Sr., Bishop Norman Wagner, Dr. Malinda Prince Sapp, Pastor Timothy Wright, Sr.,

Pastor John Osteen, Father Oral Roberts, Sr., First Lady Wright, Bishop G.E. Patterson, Pastor Abraham Swanson, “Pop” Winans ...and so many, many others! Thank you for your service to the Kingdom!

Jabez was born of a sorrow and pain so great that his mother gave him a constant reminder of this fact, she named him after it. But a few words to God changed a life and label of sorrow to a full life of victory. I Chr. 4:9 Asking God is honorable. Jabez was more honorable than his brothers because he directed his words to his God who changed the course of his life. He went directly to the source and achieve great results and so can you.

Jabez talked to God like a he was having a conversation with a friend. It wasn’t deep and he used less than 35 words. How easy is that? Asking God brings real results. At the end of the story, God granted everything that Jabez asked for. Matthew 7:7 sums it up in one simple three letter word – ASKwhat are you waiting for?

columbusOH Attorney General Cordray running on track record

This November 2, voters will head to the polls to elect statewide officeholders, including the offices of Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, State Auditor, State Treasurer, and two Ohio Supreme Court Justices. One particular race – the office of Ohio Attorney General – is drawing a great deal of attention due to the impressive record built up over the past two years by the current officeholder, Franklin County’s own Richard Cordray. Cordray was elected in 2008 following the resignation of then-Attorney General Marc Dann, who gave up his position following scandal in his administration. Cordray ran on a reform platform, and

thus far has built an impressive record of accomplishments since cleaning up the office. “When I was elected in 2008, I promised that I would restore integrity and professionalism to the office of the Attorney General,” said Cordray. “I’m proud to say that we have been successful in doing so, and I look forward to earning the trust and support of voters this November for another four years.” Since winning a landslide victory in the special election two years ago, Cordray has tackled a large number of issues important to Ohio voters. Following the economic crisis of 2008, Cordray has used the power of the Ohio Attorney General’s office to hold many Wall Street firms accountable for their illegal activities leading up to the collapse. So far, more than $2.7 billion has been returned to workers, retirees, and investors as a result of his office’s efforts. While Cordray has made Wall Street corruption a top priority of his office, he has also earned the respect of Ohio’s law enforcement community. Cordray is endorsed by every major law enforcement group in the state, and points to the work his office has accomplished over the past two years as the reason why they all support him. “We have increased training and provided more high-tech support services to law enforcement agencies than at any time in the history of the office,” Cordray said. “Supporting police who keep our communities safe is a key part of my job

Age Does Not Matter When It Comes to the Service of the Lord By Bishop Andy C. Lewter, D. Min.

W

hile most persons beyond eighty are looking for a wheelchair and some place to relax, Rudolph Waldo McKissick, Sr. is doing just the reverse. On Saturday, September 25, 2010, Bishop Paul S. Morton, along with Bishop Andy Lewter travelled to Jacksonville, FL to lay hands on and consecrate Bishop-Elect McKissick, Sr. Several other leading bishops of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship were also in attendance including Bishop Neil Ellis, Bishop Jerry Hutchins, Bishop Daryl Brister, Bishop Oscar Brown, Bishop Lester Love and a host of others. The Bethel Choir took the worship service to musical heights and the preaching, done by Bishop Rudolph McKissick, Jr., was a display of pulpit genius. others notables in attendance included Pastor Jamal Bryant and Dr. Harold Carter, Jr. Bishop Mckissick was consecrated to serve as the bishop of Marriage and

Family Enrichment for the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship. As such, he will be in charge of counseling and designing workshops for members of the fellowship to take advantage of. To prepare for his elevation, Bishop McKissick underwent a rigorous course of study by Bishop Andy Lewter of Amityville, NY and Bishop Jerry Hutchins of Athens, GA. The training included crash courses in Church History, Theology, Church Doctrines and Ecclessiology. A special catechism and exam was set up for the candidate in August that he passed without incident. Bishop McKissick’s work will begin immediately and members of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship can expect to see evidence of his work as early as the Pastor’s and Ministry Workers Conference in November of this year.

Perez International Ministries: Pastor Zelma Dickerson

Interview by Celeste Payne

I

met Pastor Dickerson back in July at the Overflow Awards hosted by Pastor Michael Heard. At the awards, I learned that she is well respected in the ministry, in her community and amongst her peers. She recently celebrated her 11th Pastoral Anniversary. The Praise Reporter sat down with her to hear her heart about her ministry. Tell us about your beginnings in ministry. PD: If we go way back it was at the age of 12, when I received the Lord as my saviour and I had some very intense encounters with God because He would show me dreams and vision and as a young girl I didn’t understand it. One day, I was sitting there in the bed actually and I heard God say “ if you love me keep my commandments.” I begin to express these visions and dreams to my mom because I didn’t know what to do. My mom took me to my pastor when I was 14 yrs old and he recognized the ministerial call on my life and the age of 16 he released me to begin to minister in the church. I carried my bible to high school everyday I was witnessing to kids, everywhere and so it was almost natural for me because my heart was just so full of love for the Lord. So from that point, how did you develop into pastorship? PD: When the Holy Ghost spoke to me to be that God called me for that it was not anything to that I mentally or physi-

8

cally or educationally prepared for but what I didn’t know was that the church I came out of there are about, probably about 20 people that been called to the ministry of pastor, so we realized as we look back that our pastor was raising up leaders. I don’t know if he was fully aware of what he was doing but, I mean from the several generations there were pastors and pastors and pastors and one day the Lord said to me, I’m calling you to pastor,and I said, but I said I don’t want a pastor I can’t pastor I’m a female we don’t do that. For about two years, I hid this in my heart and was afraid to speak it out and even tell anybody not my husband or anyone else. I then got to the point where I could not hide it any longer and I went to my pastor at the time and gave him the information that God had given me. From there a series of things occured and then I found myself saying yes to the Lord and began to move forward and preparing to develop a ministry. How did you overcome the opposition and find the courage to step into pastorship as a woman. PD: It was not easy but one thing I had was an assurance in my self that God had said it to me and I met a lot of resistance. It was a very difficult transition to make, but I said these words to God because I sat at my church as long as I possibly could. I said to God, “if you let my pastor say from the pulpit it is time I will know that that is my release to go.”

October 2010 | praisereporter.com | 866.961.7191 |

We were in church one Sunday morning and I share it with my very close friend she said do you still need God to say it is time? I said, “absolutely, thats what I ask God for.” My friend replied,“Well you’ve heard prophetic word and you’ve heard people speak to you in the beauty parlor about God’s calling on your life” I said, “but thats not what I asked God for. I asked Him for three words it-is-time.” That Sunday, my pastor stood up to preach and as he began to prepare what he had planned to say, he said “some of you are sitting there waiting for God to say it is time.” All i needed was those three words and from there I did the ground work to begin the process. Did I meet a lot challenges? Yes, I did. Even within my own family, people that I had grown up around for were unable to embrace me, but i knew that God had called me and I’d rather obey God than to obey man. I had, one pastor at my former church that I worked with for many years said “I dont believe in woman pastors, I dont believe God has called you. and I dont believe that this is what you, but if you ever need me to come over to help you let me know.” I said, “No thank you.” You will never come and send the dual message to the world –“you know that I will help you” but, “I dont believe in what you do.” I see that your motto for your church and your vision is “Beyond the Walls into the World” tell me what that means today. PD: Well, Perez, means breakthrough, God of the breakthorugh and we develop the ministry on break through, breakthrough prayer, deliverances, services, for marriages, families and then God said beyond the walls. Now we are breaking through everything in the

church . Theres so many breakthroughs you can have within the walls but then God began to impress upon my heart that we need to breakthrough the market place and go outside of the comfort of the church. Even in our mental state, we need to break outside of where we are in order to be effective Christians, to be effective disciples to be effective professionals, to be effective in what God has really called us to do. We tried passing out tracts in the neighborhood. One one year, we passed out 200 huge hurricane kits with blankets and snack food and lanterns and all of that that was great to hit the community with that but God wants to go even further than this community that were in and so to me, that means, how do we converse with that world that we have tried to get away from? How do we prevade that world that we think that we had to come out of? How do we effectively, institute or implement the great commission we preach to each other? We laid hands and prophesied to each other long enough. We eat meals with each other all the time and so now it is time for us to go outside of that comfort zone so that we can really begin to impact the world because the world is not coming to us. Rarely do they come within the walks of the church so what do we do? We have to go get them. We have to go where they are. have to have some knowledge and wisdom. I want be a part of what is God is doing today. I am here for purpose and it is not to watch people run for from one church to the other (and u know how we do we go to church to church to church) and rarely see new christians coming in church new people saying “I want God,

Take photos from a weekend trip to the zoo or museum or from the last family vacation to create an under parent supervision or within a classroom or after-school program, technology lets parents and teachers tap into the ways children love to learn today. Today’s technology has amazing and productive applications in education. The key for parents is understanding how and when to use technology to spur their child’s interest in learning and discovery. Roberts suggests parents consider the following guidelines for bridging technology to education:

isitors to one of America’s most timehonored vacation destinations— Yellowstone National Park—now have the opportunity to learn much more and broaden their exploration of the park. The recently opened Old Faithful Visitor Education Center features new ways for people of all ages to appreciate this natural, national treasure: hands-on, interactive exhibits, a theater for viewing films about the park, and a special area for kids to embark on their own exploration. Yellowstone National Park features more geysers and hot springs than the rest of the world combined. The best known of its geysers, Old Faithful, is one of the nation’s most recognized landmarks. Ninety percent of Yellowstone visitors stop by to see Old Faithful. At the Center, visitors can learn about the park’s 10,000 geysers and other geothermal features. They can discover what makes a geyser erupt, what microscopic creatures thrive in the scalding-hot springs and how the park’s fascinating volcanic past is visible today. The Center’s exhibits are designed to help visitors better understand the broader ecosystems and natural resources in the park, and why it is so important to protect them.

Showcasing The Wonders of a Favorite American Park contributions funded the development of exhibits and enabled the building to be large enough to house them. The Yellowstone Park Foundation is the official fundraising partner of Yellowstone National Park. Since 1996, YPF has raised $60 million to support more than 200 projects in the park. Such projects help to make visits to the park safer, more inspiring and more enjoyable. Examples include hiking trail rehabilitation, wildlife research and

Hundreds of individuals, foundations and corporations contributed to the Yellowstone Park Foundation’s (YPF) successful $15 million capital campaign to build this new Center, including major corporate support from ConocoPhillips, Unilever, Toyota and Coca-Cola. These donations were matched by $12 million in federal funding. A fundraising campaign was necessary because government funding only covers the park’s basic infrastructure, staffing and day-to-day operating needs. Private

The Pain Don’t Kill Me: A NFL Widow’s Journey from pain to peace dramatically changes with the sudden and tragic death of her husband … Life interrupted. Daphne’s frank and brutally honest portrayal of her story expands the boundaries of survival, leaving the reader to wonder: how much can one take. The Pain Didn’t Kill Me is a harrowing yet intimate account of how Daphne transcends devastation and discovers acceptance, peace, and joy. She now dedicates her life to spreading the word about health and awareness, so that others may reduce their chances of experiencing the tragic and premature loss of a loved one.

Excerpt:

D

aphne Bell, wife of former NFL player Todd A. Bell, gives you an all-access pass into her life—a life that most would assume is a fairy tale— until you peel back the layers. Death runs rampant throughout the lives of Daphne’s family. Fear is her constant companion. With the backlash of such loss, challenges brew in the midst of her very home. She journals: Will my marriage survive? Tragedy duly provides the answer … and the pain nearly kills her. On the morning of March 16, 2005, Daphne’s day begins like every other day as she heads to her job as a radio personality. Without warning her life

Darkness greets me . . . my alarm clock, set as always for 3:30 a.m., jolts me. My internal alarm begs to differ. And the light of dawn that usually cheers early-morning commuters eludes me. It’s five o’clock in the morning and the start of my day as a morning drive-show news anchor and radio personality for Radio One Columbus. I enjoy my job. My co-hosts are like family to me. I serve as Public Affairs Director for our station, and I love it. It affords me the opportunity to meet and develop lasting relationships with our community leaders. Community service requests pour in weekly. If I don’t check and clear my voicemail daily, it would fill up by the evening. I listen to every message; but I can’t say that I return all the calls. Because I’m on the air every day, listeners feel like they know me personally. Along with requests to host or emcee community events, I receive countless invitations to attend family reunions, weddings, and graduations. Of course, some things touch me differently

wind up staying until the end, and I learn a great deal from the doctor conducting the lecture. He discusses maintaining a healthy heart and preventative care. As I leave the luncheon and head to my next appointment, I so appreciate the light of this heart-filled day. What a great day! Thank God . . . I cannot see what lies just around the corner.

About Daphne:

Daphne Bell is turning her personal tragedy into a crusade to make people aware of the importance of knowing their family health history and taking all the steps necessary to combat heart disease, the silent killer. Daphne is the founder and president of Keeping TABs on Your Heart, a nonprofit organization she developed after the sudden death of her husband, former NFL player Todd Anthony Bell. To help further her message, she also serves as spokesperson for the American Heart Association and the Ohio State University Richard M. Ross Heart Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. The Pain Didn’t Kill Me is not only about the importance of knowing one’s family health history, but it is also about unlocking one’s family secrets— however painful. Essentially, our family history shapes our emotional, spiritual, and physical lives … whether we know our history or not. Get your copy today at www.daphnebell.com

than others—and the touch of some things moves me more than others. I’m asked to deliver a speech for the African-American Healthy Heart Luncheon, hosted by the Coalition of 100 Black Women. I am quite aware that heart disease is the number 1 killer among women. And most importantly, I feel that this disease is not in the forefront of our minds. It doesn’t receive enough media exposure. I accept the invitation. I welcome the opportunity to help create awareness about heart disease because it relates to all women, and we should all be concerned. The organizers of the luncheon don’t mind that I can’t stay long; I promise to do my thing and then leave. They’re just delighted that I can make it. One month later on February 23, 2005, during Go Red Month, I stand here speaking before a sea of black women in solidarity—all so beautifully decked out in red. I share the story of my family history of breast cancer, along with the work I do to support research and awareness about this grave disease. But because breast cancer is the greatest health scare for most women, I believe heart disease is not recognized as the deadly killer it can be. As devastating as breast cancer is, I want the women in attendance to understand the very serious threat of heart disease. Even though I’m pressed for time, I don’t leave early. I

Fighting home foreclosure and suing mortgage lenders who commit fraud have also been major priorities of his administration. Cordray said he hopes to build upon the successes of the past two years in another term in office. “There is much more important work to be done on behalf of Ohioans, and I hope to be able to continue what we have started,” Cordray said.

ith after school activities, late workdays and long commutes or carpools, many families struggle to find time to sit down together to eat dinner. When they do, the meal may consist of prepackaged or fast food options, which can increase food costs and skimp on good nutrition. What’s a busy parent to do? While a home cooked weeknight meal may sound labor-intensive, it can really payoff economically, nutritionally and environmentally – all in the form of leftovers. Child nutrition expert and mother Jodie Shield, RD, understands the challenges families face in trying to balance full calendars and tight checkbooks while serving nutritious and delicious meals. “Busy moms don’t always have time to plan ahead and make two meals each day,” said Shield. “Transforming last night’s dinner into tomorrow’s brown bag lunch, for my kids or myself, can save time and maximize budgets without cutting corners on nutrition.” Shield’s tips – which incorporate plenty of nutritious vegetables – will help parents prepare family meals that stretch from dinner to lunch:

• Presto, chango! Transform last night’s meatloaf into tasty tacos – crumble ground beef or turkey and sauté with taco seasoning. Enjoy wrapped in a soft whole-wheat tortilla or layered over shredded lettuce as a salad; add diced tomato and onions, low-fat cheese and a drizzle of Hidden Valley Original Ranch Light Dressing. • Kids like ‘em hot! Reheat leftover vegetables (eggplant, zucchini, sweet potato or snap beans) in the oven at 400° F for about 10 minutes.  Let cool five minutes, then serve warm with ranch dressing to dip. • Get egg-cited for dinner!  Serve your family a backward breakfast for dinner. Use leftover veggies like tomatoes, bell peppers, onions and new potatoes, and whip up a southwestern omelet, frittata or quiche.  For more great recipes, creative nutrition tips and fun activities, visit LoveYourVeggies.com.

Heat one teaspoon of olive oil in skillet over medium-high heat until sizzling hot. Add onion, bell pepper and okra; cook and stir until crisply tender. Remove and set aside. Add the other teaspoon of oil and heat; add chicken tenders and stirfry about five minutes until lightly browned. Return vegetables to skillet with chicken and stir in sausage and Cajun seasoning; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer about five minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in rice and dressing; continue cooking until liquid is almost absorbed and rice is thoroughly heated. Tip: The next day, wrap leftover jambalaya in a whole wheat or veggie tortilla for a special brown bag lunch.

How Homeowners Reap Rewards Homeownership is how many American families accumulate wealth. One reason is that homeowners can take advantage of tax benefits such as the mortgage interest deduction every year at tax time and capital gains exclusions when they sell their home. Over the long term, homeowners also tend to accumulate equity, which contributes to a notable increase in their personal net worth. The most recent data from the Federal Reserve Board shows a homeowner’s net worth is 46 times that of a renter’s. “There’s a reason homeownership is called the American Dream,” said National Association of Realtors® president, Vicki Cox Golder. “People who buy within their means with the intent to stay in their homes for more than a few years have the opportunity to build long-term financial stability. Homeownership is the first rung on the ladder to building wealth, both socially and financially. A fixed-rate mortgage might last 15 to 30 years;

Living for the Kingdom Ministry In The Marketplace Pt 1 by Dwann Holmes Olsen

I love to see people doing what they love. I love to see people who are passionate about their goals and who are clear about what they are called to do. But you know what I have a disdain for? I absolutely hate, seeing a person working at something they are clearly not called to do. Even though they and everyone else around them know, how miserable they are, they keep doing the same thing day after day, year after year, simply because they haven’t been encouraged or equipped to reach higher. Have you ever been in or seen a situation like that before? I see this quite often, especially in some places many would least expect it. Throughout the body of Christ, there appears to be a large segment of people

who aren’t mobilized to fulfill the great commission., There’s a large group of believers who are hearing the gospel but aren’t effectively spreading the gospel. There’s a large group of believers who believe that unless they’ve been to seminary or unless they’ve been ordained they’re not qualified or justified to really bring others into the Kingdom. I mean yes, they can witness to a backslider but what happens when they’re called to witness to a businessman who’s never been to church? I mean they can witness to a bench-warmer but what happens when the opportunity presents itself to witness to a blues band member? I mean they can pray for the choir member who has cancer but what happens when the homosexual living with AIDS walks by? So many of us fake the funk and wear the bracelets that say WWJD, what would Jesus Do …but the truth is, when it’s time to act like Jesus would act, we can’t! Because we’re not Living for the Kingdom. Heck if truth be told, many of us don’t even realize what it really means

Tips to Becoming Effective in Marketplace Ministry 1. Realize that God has ordained ministry in the Marketplace outside the four walls of the church 2. Discover the area in the marketplace that God has given you dominion 3. Preach the Gospel 4. Live the Gospel 5. Expect Manifestation to be found Living for the Kingdom. To be found doing what God has called us to do, at any cost. But I believe there’s also a group of Christians out there who know what they’ve been called to do, know what it

means to be living for the kingdom, but unfortunately they’ve been discouraged from doing what they know God is calling them to do, because it’s not traditional ministry. But I’m here to tell you that once we get the true revelation about the great commission and about living for the Kingdom, life will never be the same. When Jesus gave the great commission to His disciples before he was caught up in the sky each one of them interpreted it a different way. I mean just check out Matthew 28:16-20 or Luke 24:36-49 or John 20:19-23 and even Acts 1:6-8. In those passages you’ll find a different account about the event that each of them experienced at the same time. But despite all the different ways each one of them described what Jesus said, how he said it and what he told them to do … in the midst of it all there are some similarities that can’t be overlooked. The basic premise or Kingdom Mandate is “Go preach the gospel to any and continued on page 20

everyone on earth” Once you preach the gospel, show the folks you preached to how to live as a believer and expect miracles to follow you, just as they followed Jesus. But I want to break it down a bit further like this: Preach the Gospel, Live the Gospel and expect Manifestation. Repeat that if you will after me: Preach the Gospel, Live the Gospel and expect Manifestation. Let’s look at Mark 16:14 - And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Now remember this is the mandate. And my dictionary tells me that a mandate is an authoritative command or instruction. So that means it’s not an option. But to get an even better understanding of this thing, lets look at the word Kingdom. I found 2 definitions that I like the most; one is a realm or sphere in which one thing is dominant; the other is, the

sphere in which one is king or has control. So since we know God has total control of this world, since He is the creator of all things, He is basically the King of Kings. And since we are his children, a royal priesthood, we are heirs to his Kingdom. In other words we are Kings. We just have to figure out which sphere here on earth we have control in so that we can operate in the full mandate our King has told us to operate in. Clearly when Jesus said go into all the world or even as Matthew put it …into all the nations, Jesus meant ALL and EVERYBODY. My dictionary says it a few different ways: Being or representing the entire or total number, amount, or quantity THEN it also says: Constituting, being, or representing the total extent or the whole. And last but not least, being the utmost possible! Unfortunately many of us saved folks

either don’t understand what the word all means or we simply choose to ignore the mandate. So many of us are satisfied ministering inside the church building but are scared to minister outside in the street or in the marketplace. We’re satisfied with evangelizing to someone who looks like us, but are too racist to minister to someone of another ethnicity. We’re satisfied with inviting our cousin to church but can’t gather up enough courage to invite our co-workers. We’re satisfied with ministry in our comfort zones but can’t seem to fathom ministry in the marketplace. But, I’m here to tell you that until we recognize marketplace ministry as a part of God’s plan, we’ll never be able to effectively live for the Kingdom. As soon as more of us start ministering in the marketplace in our God-ordained sphere of influence, then we’ll start truly reaching ALL of the world.

For some of us, our sphere of influence is in Business, for others it’s Education, for others it’s Entertainment and for some it’s even Government. I mean just think of it like this, how can the wealth of the wicked get transferred to the saints if we don’t have saints mobilized and operating in every sphere that exists on planet earth? Are you mobilized in the right sphere of influence, here on earth?

We’re suppose to bring back fruit, were suppose to bring in fish. If you let the net sit upon itself too long it. If you keeps folding it and handling it, it gets entangled. And you cannot fish with an entangled net and so, we must let God use us and spread us out, spread us out into the world. you know, weve cast our net we fish all night we fish 20 yrs 30yrs, 40yrs and look out we dont have much to offer you. But, we can cast on the other side of the boat and to be on the other side - outside the four walls of the church.
