Publisher’s Letter

years have come and gone but the Lord our Savior has come and Many never left. Life in this physical world constantly undergoes change; which is perhaps the in one form and way or another. One thing that is guaranteed not to change is change because we are in a finite world. Our Creator who is Spirit never changes and is Infinite. The God-Life or God-Breath He breathed into the nostrils of Adam was the eternal and incorruptible nature that was to never change about man. It was the immortality or eternity, just like our, Creator that was lost after the fall of Adam. But THANKS be to God for He is never unprepared nor caught off guard. He sent His Son to give us Himself, Eternal, Infinite and Everlasting Life, through His Spirit after Jesus Resurrected. We NOW have access to regain back what was lost through Jesus Christ and begin to experience the life in the Spirit. There are many reasons for us to be thankful about which we don’t realize sometimes until we lose it or a person. Count all that you have in Him and give Him thanks and celebrate! I celebrate this season because of you, my brothers and sisters in Christ. May the joy, peace and love stay forever in your heart for they are never changing fruits in the Holy Spirit. The Eternal Life of God is now back WITH US, through Immanuel. Let Him reign and rule our hearts not just this season but every season. The Kingdom of God is within us if the King of Glory is in us. The King has come in earth and let us share with others the GOOD NEWS that The Kingdom of God has arrived.

I will PRAISE God’s name in song and GLORIFY HIM with THANKSGIVING. - Psalm 69:30


The Pursuit of Kingdom Value is a bold foraging into the complicated mindset of human capital and significance. The end result is a mapped, simple paradigm of thought, birthed from the reduction of complicated ideology and defined by the Kingdom’s presentation of human worth. Dr. Myles Munroe We as people perceive value through differing lens; this perspective shapes how we respond to our parents, peers, leaders and life challenges. Professor Storr early in The Pursuit of Kingdom Value surgically exposes the inadequacies and fallacies of conventional thoughts and commonly held misunderstandings on value. He reconstructs the subject in a handsome thesis which is sure to bring a shine to the gold which is - every person reading this book. As you journey through the pages you will learn how to: • • • •

Utilize and live by the Kingdom’s presentation of value. Recognize how value is currently defined. Increase your value through appreciation. Cultivate your value through opportunities and time management. • Trade your value for personal and corporate benefit.

Greetings

It is always my distinct pleasure and an honor to greet the Global Family of Thy Kingdom Carries with the love of Christ and with an abundance of Joy! As we approach the end of 2013 we pause at a moment of “Selah” and reflect on the many blessings and manifestations we have encountered over the year. This leads us to give unending praise and thanksgiving to our Father. We are a people that are mindful to keep praise on our lips and peace in our hearts as a daily lifestyle, thereby enhancing the existence of our purpose and destiny. Our praise, worship, prayer and fasting are weapons and a standard during times of adversities. It renews our mind, strengthens our faith, and brings a refreshing to our spirit man. As a former Praise and Worship Leader, I know it is common to experience moments of disappointments and despair. Still, take heart and push through the irritants with your celebration of praise. That simply means, regardless of what’s going on around you, your weapon of praise is a 24 hour “chain breaker.” It solicits the Father’s presence and gives His Holy Angels permission to contend on our behalf.

I remember reading an article (thank you Victoria Osteen) about the stages an oyster must endure from the surrounding elements, to eliminate the irritants for producing a precious pearl. Praise is the eliminating factor to our life’s irritants, producing within us precious jewels and gems that are valuable to the Kingdom. One last encouraging thought I would like to leave with you. We celebrate our Great God with praise, thanksgiving, psalms and love. This act of kindness to our King is reciprocated to His people, Zeph. 3:15. The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty and He will save; He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing! Yes! We are His prized possession and the Lord sings and rejoices over you! I decree and declare that the remainder of 2013 will be super fabulous for you! Let us continue to move forward with a praise of celebration on our lips to His Majesty. All hail the King of Glory!

Favor and Blessings ✽

Thy Kingdom Come….! God’s Kingdom is where He is King; it is eternal and unchanging, but at times appears to vary in extent and authority because we are trapped in time. Only those who obey the Heavenly Father may enter the Kingdom of God, Matt. 7:21. The Kingdom demands that God be first in the lives of His people, ahead of all personal needs, interests and cares.

God’s Kingdom is eternal and He alone has the absolute right to be King over his creation because he created it, Jer. 10:10; Dan. 4.:34.; Ps. 95:3-5. In addition, God’s Kingdom is established “from of old” and exists “from all eternity,” Ps. 74.:12; Psalm 93:12. Finally, He has prepared his Kingdom for his people since the creation of the world, Matt. 25:34.. Jesus taught his disciples to pray that God’s Kingdom would come on earth, as it already is in Heaven; implying that the Kingdom is not completely here yet, Luke 11:2. Similarly, Paul expressed his confidence that God would deliver him from every evil attack and bring him safely to the Heavenly Kingdom, 2 Tim. 4.:18. Jesus’ frequent message was “repent, for the Kingdom is near.” He came to bring the Kingdom to earth; whose growth has both visible and invisible aspects. The visible aspect is the growth of the visible Church. The invisible or spiritual aspect is the growth of the Kingdom within God’s people and in the number of people recognizing the King. It works among the people when good news of the Kingdom grows in the hearts of men. God wants His people to be successful. In order for that to happen, we have to first acquire, knowledge of how the Kingdom of God works. There are certain principles of success in the Bible that are hidden like precious jewels awaiting anyone willing to search the scriptures for them.

JOY, PEACE a nd LOVE TO All Nations “Our Lord, the King of Glory, is worthy of all our Praise and Worship.”

“There is none like YOU!” Truly, there is

none like Him. Our Lord, the King of Glory, is worthy of ALL our Praise and Worship. The best offering of praise and worship to the King is our living being that is pure and holy in Christ. The blood of Jesus has purified our souls and spirits that we may be a fragrant offering to Him. He has given us the power of grace and mercy that we may live according to His will, image and likeness for this world to know that Jesus Christ is Lord.

Jesus, who is life, was sent as The Life Giving Spirit with the Kingdom or Government of Heaven upon His shoulders. Everyone needs the God-Life Jesus provides, which was lost after the fall of Adam. Jesus is the true life, living in us and within the sphere of the Kingdom of God. Let there be singing, dancing and rejoicing this season for life has been birthed and now seated at the right hand of the Father. Let there be joy to the world through us, the sons of the King and the carriers of His glory

and kingdom. Let us proclaim the good news that He and His Kingdom have arrived, and together provide the answers to the questions of our world. From the Philippines to all nations I send and give you joy, peace and love in the Holy Spirit through Christ that is in you. Come, let us go together and dwell in Him, THE REASON OF THIS SEASON! ✽

That’s why I praise you, Lord Jesus! Praise is about thanking, honoring and blessing God for who He is and what He has done for us.

It is proper and natural for the citizens of God’s Kingdom to be thankful to the King for all He has done. However, praise given beforehand also prepares us to receive from Him what we have yet to see. There is a special power in praising Him while still in the midst of troubles and difficulties; this is how we enable the correct environment for heavenly things to happen on earth. It is amazing that in any circumstance and crisis we have the potential to proclaim and rejoice in the love, faithfulness, favor, mercy and power of God. This potential ability dwells in our human spirit and it is a God given urge to transcend and see beyond our earthly condition. It operates by trust, which also is a gift from God; given to allow the spiritual urge to remain united with Him.

“hAppy Are the ones who do not see, but trust AnywAy,”

Praise is the attitude of thanksgiving and blessing we maintain John 20:29 while ‘seeing beyond’ the physical realm. We trust that the destiny our heavenly Father designed for us will be accomplished in our lives. It may take time to be seen in this dimension, but our destiny is eternal and existed before your birth - it is called - eternal life. It was given to us and cannot fail in its manifestation, unless we lack trust, therefore we should praise God for it in every situation! Jesus Himself told Thomas, “happy are the ones who do not see, but trust anyway,” John 20:29. Faithful trust and praise to God are the heavenly ingredients for a happy life on earth. They produce in us a special, unceasing excitement that comes out of a deep sense of unity with our King. Praise gives us the assurance of being part of His plan and it keeps reminding us that the Master is alive and with us. I am convinced with all my heart, that

if we continually trust and praise Him, we will surely see all His promises manifested in our lives and we will see His will done on earth, just as it is in Heaven, Matt. 6:10. That’s why I praise Him; for God is good all the time. Everything He does or allows to happen is always done well. Therefore we should faithfully trust that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love Him and are called in accordance with His purpose, Rom. 8:29. The expression of this trust is exalting His great name, while expecting the Holy Spirit to inspire in us, both the willing and working for what pleases Him according to His plan, Phil. 2:13. As we unite with the Messiah, we can praise Him and sing our new song, “Lord, I trust you and I entrust my life to you; I rely fully on you!” ✽

The Power of Thanksgiving Giving thanks to God is a Kingdom

value; and as Christians we should practice it daily because of its supernatural nature. Thanksgiving unlocks possibilities in situations that look seemingly impossible. When Jesus prayed for Lazarus’ resurrection, He thanked God for having heard His prayers before anyone saw it answered. John 11:4.0-4.4. Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?” So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up to heaven and said, “Father, I thank that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.” When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. (Emphasis mine, NIV) Jesus employed the prayer of thanksgiving and governmental decree to reverse an impossible situation in the natural realm. Sometimes when our circumstances look impossible, a prayer of thanksgiving might be the key needed to turn our circumstances around. One of the strategies satan employs during times of warfare is to have the participants focus on the problems rather than a solution. He turns their attention to what is wrong, impossible or negative. This strategy causes people to be fearful, worried and magnifies the problems.

Such response creates an atmosphere of impossibilities and in most cases reinforces negative attitudes. Philippians 4.:6-7 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Emphasis mine, NKJV) God’s plan for our lives is for the peace of heaven to govern our hearts and minds, rather than fear or worry. Prayer, supplication and thanksgiving releases the peace of God needed to keep our hearts and minds focused on Him. In situations of intimidation, fear or worry, thanksgiving to our Heavenly Father empowers us to discover God’s possibilities. Thanksgiving makes us hopeful, because it focuses our perspective, thoughts and affections on God’s integrity; this leads to His assistance and intervention. Thanksgiving is a Kingdom strategy of warfare which the Bible instructs us to use in every circumstance. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (Emphasis mine, NIV)

GROWING IN THANKSGIVING

Can you remember the last time you wrote out and meditated on the good things God did in

your life, for your family, job or nation? I would suggest focusing on those good things; this does not mean you are denying your circumstances. The Bible however, instructs us about the focus of our meditation; which eventually influences our confession and circumstances. Philippians 4.: 8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things. (Emphasis mine, NKJV) I suggest you write out, meditate on and thank God for, the good things He has done, is doing and will do in your life. Thank Him for your life, family, job, city, nation and all the things you were able to accomplish. When this supernatural attitude of thanksgiving becomes a daily habit, you will have created an atmosphere of miracles and divine intervention. Are you in a season of rest or warfare? Irrespective of the season you are in at this time; apply the strategy of focusing on who God is in prayer, praise and thanksgiving. This strategy invites God into your life or circumstances and empowers you to have faith, receive godly solutions and confront any giant. May you continue to enjoy the peace of Heaven, the possibilities of God and His divine intervention through the power of thanksgiving, in Jesus’ name; amen.” ✽

Trusting and Praising God in Every Situation Everyday should provide an opportunity of thanksgiving and praise. We should never take God’s gifts for granted; we should always be thankful and praising Him for all His blessings. We are blessed to be children of the King and together, let us give thanks to our Lord Jesus who has given us eternal life. God’s gift to us is a new-life filled with righteousness, peace, joy, and intimacy with Him; therefore praise should be a part of our everyday lifestyle. It is through praise that God wants us to acknowledge Him; what He has done and what He will do for us. I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth, Psalms 34.:1.

“i will eXtol the lord At All times; his prAise will AlwAys be on my lips.”

But we are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a Psalms 34:1 holy nation, a peculiar people; that we should show forth the praises of him who hath called us out of darkness into His marvelous light. Not only do we praise him with our lips, but our lives should praise Him. We must praise His Name for turning our tears into pearls and our scars into stars. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Psalm 150:6. Beloved friends, do not give up hope when faced with trials and uncertainties in life. God has not abandoned you, He is present by your side to help, comfort, and strengthen; just begin praising Him now. This praise will be glorious and will lead you out upon the waters into new depths of His Spirit. ✽

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is: Thanks to our LORD JESUS who is Holy and awesome who pours out His Abundance in my life in the Name of Jesus, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords and Savior of the world, Giver of Life, Immanuel; God with me and Victory is mine. I-am going to the Nations of the world with Goodness which follows me all my days. Devin Rajah Bambous, Mauritius www.bagchurch.org

Purposeful Living

The

Power of Praise

“…And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to him who is seated on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twentyfour elders fall down before him who is seated on the throne and worship him who lives forever and ever. They cast their crowns before the throne…” JRev. 4:9-10 ESV

It is difficult to express in human terms, the magnitude of awe

and glory that was before the eyes of John as he peered into the throne room of Heaven. John describes God as seated on His throne and having the appearance of jasper and carnelian. His radiance was so glorious; its essence was that of a rainbow. From His throne came flashes of lighting, peals of thunder, and what appeared to be a sea of glass like crystal. Can you imagine John’s difficulty in describing these things? It is no surprise that creatures are constantly singing “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!” Who can help, but praise Him in all this glory? Even the twenty-four elders, who had been given power and authority, fell down before him in praise and worship. Although there has been much debate concerning the identities of the twenty-four elders there are a few things we know for sure.

We know that they were seated on thrones; which means they were given prominent positions in the Kingdom. They were also clothed in white garments, which symbolize purity and righteousness. Finally, they were given golden crowns on their heads, meaning they had authority in the Kingdom. Many other things can be debated, but we know with certainty that these elders were given position, purity, and power. However, even with all that, they still did one thing that set them apart in John’s eyes; in the presence of God - they praised. Dr. Myles Munroe states, “Praise is celebrating God as our heart’s true home.” He further defines praise as commending, expressing approval or favorable judgment, or glorifying. The elders, in all of their splendor and authority, recognized a higher power, a higher glory and a higher authority. They viewed and revered God as the ultimate source of all that had been given to them and as a result, praised God in for all His majesty and wonder. God was at the center of their hearts and by expressing their hearts, they were simply revealing what was already in them. Notice also, that their praise was automatic. There were no worship leaders coaching or telling them what to do; they naturally praised and worshipped Him. They fell down in worship and cast their crowns (symbols of authority) before His feet. This is the purest act of worship; which is to take everything that entails our identities, self-worth, position, authority and power and place it at the feet of God. This is shown by living in total submission to Him. By honoring His position, power, and authority, the elders were protecting their own position, power and authority. Praise then, is a two-way relationship. By honoring and acknowledging the power, authority and glory of God, we align with Him and His Kingdom to allow that same power, authority, and glory to flow through our lives. God is worthy of our highest praise; by praising Him daily and in every season, we keep ourselves in alignment with Him. This allows His power to flow through us to fulfill His will on earth as it is already so gloriously revealed in Heaven. ✽

Empowerment

Oh Give Thanks Unto the LORD! Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever (Psalm 107:1) - Romans 8:19 Thanksgiving is recognized as a holiday during the month of November in most western cultures. Many places of business reserve Thanksgiving as a day off allowing their employees time to fellowship with friends and family. Although we enjoy this free time and fellowship, often the emphasis’ is placed on the “turkey” and the side dishes. There is nothing wrong with breaking bread together, but let’s not forget how important it is to be “thankful” 365 days and if it’s a Leap Year add another day thank you. King David was known as a man after God’s own heart (Acts 13:22). In spite of his many trials, test, disappointments and victories, we often find David with a pen and pad journaling his heart. His expressions of gratitude and thankfulness were always a “feast” written to the LORD; it was certain he had a deep relationship with God. David would have the entire providence sing songs of praise and thanks you to our LORD. As sons and daughters of God, the hustle and bustle of the holidays often are mixed with commercialized store ads for sales and shopping. However, let’s keep in mind we are to always give thanks unto the LORD.

Q.Why

should we give thanks?

A. For starters, God’s mercies are new every day (Psalms 118). His promises are sure and His Kingdom is from everlasting to everlasting (Psalm 145).

Q. What

should I thank Him for?

A. I am sure you could not add up all the times He protected, provided and blessed you in spite of…. I challenge you to start with the fact that you are alive and go from there. Perhaps for the rest of the year if you do not journal, this would be a perfect time to write down what you are thankful for on a daily basis (Psalms 45). May your tongue be like a ready writer of praise, filled with “thank you Father.” May this Thanksgiving be a time of reflection, rejoicing and THANKFULNESS from the heart,

God of Science

The Kingdom’s View of

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving in the Bible is a noun and it is a verb. As a noun, thanksgiving is what is given and as a verb, it emphasizes the action of giving. In Leviticus 7:11-13, thanksgiving as used refers to what is being given and it is labeled as a thanksgiving. In this passage the thanksgiving is a meat offering, which is given to God. Psalm 69:30 says, “I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.” Here thanksgiving is not a thing it is an act. I Thessalonians 5:18, “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” Again the emphasis is thanksgiving the verb.

So what is and can be considered thanksgiving? 1. A non-verbal gift to God. 2. In the O.T. it was an animal or agricultural product.

3. It is the expression of our faith, trust and acknowledgement of God for what He has done, will do and who He is – His character. 4. As a verb, thanksgiving could be expressed many ways: extending the hands, saying something about God or even in singing. The Biblical evidence shows that thanksgiving is both an object and an

action. As we head into the latter six weeks of the year in this part of the world, two days approach with great anticipation: Thanksgiving and Christmas. Note that Thanksgiving Day has its roots in the past and has evolved to a time of reflection of life, family and endeavors and acknowledgement of their positive impacts upon us. Christmas also with its roots in the past for the believer is a time to acknowledge God’s greatest gift to humanity – Jesus. In turn we offer gifts to those around us, like the Divine Gift Giver. In both days, from a secular perspective, we see Thanksgiving Day more so defined by thanksgiving as an expression, which is primarily through words and saying something. Whereas Christmas Day, is pronounced by the gifts which are given to people of our choosing. So much so, that the bottom line of many businesses is defined by individuals’ willingness not to receive, but to give. Two days, two differing approaches to thanksgiving. The economy of God, runs on thanksgiving; both the noun and the verb. Thanksgiving in the Kingdom is what I say to God; thanksgiving in the Kingdom is my acknowledgement of God; and in the Kingdom it is my gift to God. What can I say to the only God who gave His son for me? What can I say to the only God who adopted me and made me an heir in His Kingdom? What can I say to the only God whose interests involve the minutest details of my life? What can I say to the only God who knows my needs before I ask and has already made preparations before I even acknowledge my needs? I can only give thanks. I will lift my hands because of His greatness. I, with my voice, attest to his faithfulness; I sing of His goodness and I enter His very gates with Thanksgiving in my heart. What can I give to the only God who gave His best for me? What can I give to the only God who gave me the earth and all it contains? I give Him my life: i.e. my time, talent, treasure. It is shared with those in need; the hungry, the impoverished and those in prison. When we do this to the least of others we are doing it to Him. As we approach the Thanksgiving and Christmas season, we know that we are fully prepared because throughout the year we participated in the economy of God with our thanksgiving. It is currency in the Kingdom. Like others before us, we thank God for what He will do and of course for what He has done using the fruit of our lips. We give gifts to others, because we have been givers continually in the past – it is who we are; sons and daughters of the Most High. We will forever be people of thanksgiving. ✽

A Deeper Look

Present That Keeps On Giving The

However, when He, the Spirit of Truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth. For He shall not speak of Himself, but whatever He hears, He shall speak. And He will announce to you things to come. John 16:13 When we fail to hear the voice of God for our lives, we literally cross (X) out Christ from our lives and experience what a type of “spiritual amnesia.” This results in failure to hear about all of the daily benefits that God has in store for us and those whom we are to influence. Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah Psalms 68:19

This holiday season many people will focus on giving and receiving gifts called presents. This tradition was founded on the birth of Jesus Christ into the world approximately 2000 years ago. In taking a closer look into the birth of Jesus which is celebrated once a year on December 25, we have to come to understand and realize the fullness of God’s gift to the world. His gift, answers a world problem that exists still today and is loaded with untapped daily benefits. Jesus’ birth introduced the presence and the voice of God into the earth in human and spirit form. Today many are debating whether to continue to spell the name of the holiday - Christmas which means Christ-time or as Xmas thus crossing out Christ, from whom this season was originally derived. Yet the spelling of it really doesn’t matter, if we fail to experience the voice of God that contains the benefits for our lives on a daily basis. If we do, then we are also guilty of crossing out Christ and failing to understand that Jesus’ birth and death on the cross gave the world access to humanity’s greatest gift. This gift if left unwrapped, keeps silent the voice of truth, spoken to all humanity throughout time. This is the gift that keeps on giving. This is the gift that was pre-sent; that contains the presence; and that we are to present into the world on a daily basis.

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits

Psalms 103:2

This voice is what causes us to discover, develop and deploy the details of the Kingdom of God. This He purposefully placed in us, so that we like Jesus, can become a gift to the world. This is seen in providing answers to the world’s problems that they desperately need to unwrap for their individual and collective lives. ✽

Pastor Tim and Lady Talisa Copeland currently reside in Spartanburg, SC. They were married in 2004. and co-parent 5 children. Together they feel a deep passion for people to experience the Kingdom of God. Pastor Tim received salvation in 1995, and in 2005 accepted the call to preach. He was licensed and ordained under Global Ministries International, and served as minister/asst. to pastor. In 2007 he was also ordained under Redemption Ministerial Fellowship International(RMFI). Lady Talisa gave her life to Christ in 2004., and has developed a desire to see women who are commonly “overlooked”, brought up to the frontline. Her womens ministry(Elegance) helps women become relational with each other, and encourages them to get “lined up” with what God has for them. Since coming together, various trials and obstacles have tried to abort the assignment on their lives, but have utterly failed. With a newfound passion and renewed purpose to complete the assignment on their lives, in the fall of 2010 they founded HIS Worship Ministries. In 2011, they joined Kingdom Assembly Fellowship for Pastors(KAFP). Their vision is to help people discover AND walk out their God-purpose on their lives. Their motto, “we don’t worship for practice….we Worship with a Purpose is geared towards the mentality that every believer is called to live a Kingdom lifestyle daily, and not just a religion practice on Wednsdays and Sundays.

Holistic Health

The Importance of Water Many Americans live in a mildly

dehydrated state with various irritating symptoms and never realize it. When people have a headache, they don’t have a Tylenol deficiency; when they have joint pain, they don’t have an Advil deficiency; when they have heartburn, they don’t have a Pepcid deficiency; and if they are depressed, they don’t have a Prozac deficiency. In each of these cases, their body is often crying out for water. Take a Guess If it sounds like a miracle cure, that’s because it is! God created us to rely on water for our very lives. In the Bible, you may have seen how water is a major theme in the Old Testament. People were always digging into the ground looking for water, and when they found it, they gave their wells names and defended them with their lives (Genesis 26:21; Exodus 2:17; Numbers 20:17). That’s how critical water was for survival during those times and it is just as important for you and me today. In my profession we see clients with many ailments; we recommend every client drink water first before moving on to other alternative methods. Most of our clients get better when they simply drink as much water as their body requests. This could be distilled, alkaline or spring water. You may be wondering what percentage of water is needed? Well an average, healthy adult living in a temperate climate according to The Institute of Medicine

an Adequate Intake (AI) needs: roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day if they are men and 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total beverages a day if they are women. In addition, there are other factors which modify our total fluid intake. These factors are dependent on activity level, the climate, health status and whether one is pregnant or breastfeeding. Water is the major constituent of the human body and comprises about 60% of an adult’s body by weight. This water content varies depending on age, gender and body composition. In infants and children, the percentage of water is higher than in adults. Given the large percentage of water in the human body, it is not surprising that water plays an extremely important role in many of the body’s critical functions. Water, a vital nutrient to the life of every cell, acts first as a building material. It also regulates our internal body temperature by sweating and it helps make nutrients and other essential elements accessible by transporting them to our cells. Further, water assists in flushing waste from our body mainly through urination. It lubricates joints, forms saliva and acts as a shock absorber for the brain, spinal cord, and fetuses. The cartilage in your spine is made of water and the lining of your stomach to keep your stomach acid from leaking is made with water. Your brain needs a certain percentage of water, and your veins and arteries need water for lubrication to keep the blood from sticking to the walls. The five main organs keeping you alive need water and when they don’t get it, they hold on to it because they are afraid of not getting enough in the future. This causes the body to retain fluids and places pressure on other organs which contribute to Hypertension or High Blood Pressure. Water is essential for living, so please drink the correct amount of water consistently. ✽ Informational Purposes only and not to substitute for disease intervention.

Feature

The Heartbeat of the Kingdom

The heartbeat of the Kingdom of God is love, because God is love. God created the heavens, the earth and everything in it and said it was good. It was good in the sense that it was perfect for His sons and daughters to live in. Just like a good father He orders our footsteps; wants everything perfect for us and desires that we prosper in everything He gave us to do. So when humanity was overtaken by sin, He sent his only begotten son to save us because of His great love for us. Why? It is because love is the very heartbeat of the Kingdom and we could never survive without it. The Bible gives us two rules in Matt. 22:37-4.0 to live by which sums up “Kingdom Love.” They are:

emotions; rather it is known for producing a character like nothing this world has ever known. I Corinthians 13:4.-8 describes this type of love: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails. This is truly the type of love that all Kingdom Citizens should seek to possess. ✽

1. Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind; this is the first and great commandment.

Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. has been married to pastor teresa Jones for 17 years and they On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. have 4 children and 3 grandchildren. together they oversee If we take this scripture to heart and understand love as implied the “for better or for worse marriage ministry” and the “kingdom within the words, we would never suggest that people say or do fellowship men’s ministry.” pastor reggie has a deep passion things that we would neither say nor do. True Kingdom Love for ensuring that the body of christ demonstrates genuine love is not demonstrated in a display of manipulating or controlling wherever they are called to go.

Season’s Greetings T

he entry of Jesus into this world was necessary for the salvation of mankind. The enemy has gone to great lengths to pollute and dilute the birth and resurrection of Jesus because he wants man to be in doubt and disbelief. He knows the prophecy in the garden concerning the birth of Jesus and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The true purpose of tradition got lost in the confusion of his scheme. While tradition is suppose to transport a truth to another generation it transported the acts of the tradition and left the truth out.

The enemy has been hard at work polluting and diluting truth over the centuries and his master piece was to destroy the tradition of Christmas. His plan was to take Christ, who is the truth, out of Christmas and leave the mass, service or acts to man’s excitement. He succeeded over the years and man has been trying to fill the emptiness of Christ in Christmas. But this Christmas we can put back the truth into Christmas by keeping our focus on Jesus Christ our Lord and the true reason for the season. Have a blessed 2013 Christmas. Pepe Ramnath Senior Pastor of the Miramar Kingdom Community Center.

A

lifetime is filled with seasons as distinct reference points of significance. God allows us to see those seasons physically through plants and other environmental changes, but the most significant are the spiritual seasons that impact the world with revelation of the cultivation of God’s Kingdom entrance. Most notable, the birth of God’s Son, our King. We celebrate His birth and the season of birthing new dimensions in your purpose and destiny. Dr. Rick and Liz Kendall

Awake Nations

We have a Treasure in Christ Having traveled to various developing nations, I have found that some of the richest countries are in fact the poorest! What do I mean by that? A nation may possess a plethora of natural resources, but if they are not intentional about tapping into and developing those resources, they will remain in poverty. The same is true in the Kingdom of God. We have been given an abundance of grace for every good work. We have been blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ (See Ephesians 1:3). Surely, there is no shortage in Him! Yet, if we would experience all that Christ has made available to us, we must dig to deeper depths where treasure is to be found! “…And if you look for it, [wisdom] as for silver and search for it, as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.” (Proverbs 2:4-5)

“…And if you look for it, [wisdom] as for silver and search for it, as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.” Proverbs 2:4-5

We have a Treasure in Christ If you were made aware that a veritable fortune was buried on your land, how would you respond? Would you say, “One of these days, when I have time, I will search for the treasure.” No, you would not postpone searching for the treasure! You would put all other events in your life on hold and immediately begin excavating until the treasure was in your possession! The truth is, in Christ, we have a treasure that is of greater worth than all the riches of this world. The Scriptures say of Christ our Wisdom: “For wisdom is more profitable than silver, and her wages are better than gold. Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.” (Proverbs 3:14-15, New Living Translation) By and large, we have neglected this treasure and left it buried in the ground of our lives! We have failed to discern the value of what we have been given in Christ! How was it that Moses so willingly walked away from the power and prestige that was his

30

November - December ✻ 2013

as a prominent leader of one of the richest nations on the earth of his time? Think about it! That would be equivalent to Bill Gates today relinquishing his position and forsaking his wealth to follow Christ! It was because of the revelation he possessed of the worth of Christ! “By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.” (Hebrews 11:24-26 Emphasis Added) ✽


Awake Nations steal” (Matthew 6:20). When we invest in eternity, we actually position ourselves to experience the benefits of the economy of God’s Kingdom which is “recession-proof” for both now and eternity! The Lord has covenanted to meet every need we have: “My God shall supply all your need,” Paul declared. Such resources are inexhaustible as it is not derived from the economy of this world that is subject to change. Its’ source is the economy of the Kingdom of Heaven, also known as “…riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)

It is so easy for us to depreciate the value of spiritual riches that has been given to us in Christ! That is why we need the Holy Spirit’s help. Paul prays for the saints: “… that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power.” (Ephesians 1:17-19)

First Priority: Seeking the Kingdom Could it be that in the Kingdom of God

many today do not appreciate the treasure they have in Christ! This is evidenced by the fact that they are seeking after the material things in this life and not the glory and honor of the Living God! The LORD told Abram that He was his “… exceedingly great reward” (see Genesis 15:1). The Bible says that where our treasure is, there our heart will be also (Matthew 6:21). In other words, that which we invest our lives into the most, (time, money, effort) reflects what we value preeminently! Priority number one for us as Christians should be the Kingdom of God and His righteousness (Matthew 6:33). We are exhorted to, “Store your treasures in heaven, where moth and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and

No matter what you are currently experiencing in life, know that the Lord has made available to you “…all things pertaining to life and godliness…” (2 Peter 1:3) Are you in a season of scarcity? Does it seem that you are being stretched to the breaking point? Are you unable to find a way out on your own? The word of the Lord is, “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, live righteously and He will give you everything you need.” (Matthew 6:33, New Living Translation). In other words, “focus on the eternal; invest your life in that.” Such an investment can’t go wrong according to Jesus as it pays dividends for this life and for eternity: “So Jesus answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel’s, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time – houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions – and in the age to come, eternal life.” (Mark 10:29-30)
