Dear partners and friends,
This month we conducted, a successful training for church youth leaders and, a church meeting in an undisclosed country.
The theme of the teaching was “Supernatural Expansion of the Church”. We revealed that the gospel is the ‘dunamis’ of God (Romans 1:16). The Greek word ‘dunamis’, translated ‘power’ in English, carries the idea of the miraculous, or the supernatural, power of God (Strong’s Dictionary). God’s power is released through faith in His written promises in the Scripture (2 Peter 1:2-4). It is also released through the gifts of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:8-11). The teaching encompassed how to increase our personal faith in God’s promises through meditation, and also how to flow with the anointing of the Holy Spirit. We subsequently prayed for all participants that Jesus’ baptise them with the Holy Spirit and fire (Matthew 3:11, Hebrews 13:8).
A few days after the completion of the mission I received the following report. “I just came… from our weekly youth meeting… it included a time of testimony of what the youth leaders learnt… your teaching has impacted many of these youth leaders (including me) about the importance of meditating God’s Word. All those who have shared tonight have started to meditate and claim God’s promises… especially in the area of their finances.”
A primary aim of teaching is to motivate behavioural change in the lives of the listeners. So to receive this report indicates a successful mission. If these leaders continue in the discipline of meditation of God’s promises, it is only a matter of time before they will experience supernatural increase in their lives, which will flow into the supernatural expansion of the church!
With love, Andrew

Who His own self bore our sins in His body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed
1 Peter 2:24
Jesus bore the sins of humanity, in His body, on the Cross of Calvary (1 Peter 2:24). Any human who has faith in Jesus’ shed blood, believes in Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, and confesses Jesus as the Lord over their life, can become born-again and receive a new spirit (Romans 3:25, 10:9-10, Ezekiel 36:26, John 3:5-6, 8, Galatian 4:29, 1 Peter 1:23, 1 John 3:9, 1 John 5:18). The new, born-again spirit is free to live unto righteousness as our spirit has been liberated from, the dominion of the devil spirits and, the sin nature which was passed down to us from our forefather Adam (Colossians 1:13, 2 Corinthians 5:17, 21). Adam fell into sin when he rebelled against God and chose to explore evil, thereby giving his allegiance to the devil (Genesis 2:17, 3:1, 6, Luke 4:6, 2 Corinthians 4:4). Through the Cross, Jesus has completed the legal and just redemption of humanity, to restore all of humanity back to Himself. We are reconciled back to God through exercising personal faith in Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1).
New creation is holy
Our new, born-again spirit is holy and righteous and desires to love God and walk with God in purity, truth, honesty and love (Ephesians 4:24, 2 Corinthians 6:16). Our new spirit desires to walk according to God’s holy law (Romans 7:12).
As we have a holy, new spirit we are empowered to walk in righteousness and not follow the lust which resides in our flesh (1 Peter 2:24, Romans 6:2-4, Galatians 5:13, 16-17). In addition, our first priority is to walk with the Lord, rather than giving our affections to this world with its many allures and temptations.
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever
1 John 2:15-17
Our true identity is not with this world, as we are born of God (1 John 3:9). Our true identity is found in our eternal connection with Jesus, and the eternal plan and purpose of our Creator, Jesus Christ (Colossians 1:16). The world offers manifold distractions to lure us away from our first love and calling which is to align our thoughts and ambitions to be in harmony with the eternal plan of the Lord. This is where we find our true identity and purpose, working with our Creator to fulfil His plans.
Freedom from poverty and disease
Jesus, by His bruising on the Cross of Calvary, has provided, spiritual power to heal all sickness and disease and, freedom from the destruction of poverty. Poverty hinders us from eating nutritious food which is needed to maintain health in our bodies. Poverty also impedes us from having good clothes and shelter to protect our bodies from the harshness of the environment. Jesus, however, has broken the power of poverty over the human race (Luke 4:4, 18-21, Hebrews 2:14).
Healthy nutritious food, good clothing, and clean, dry and warm housing, costs money. God’s miracle power to receive this financial provision is clearly included in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you
As we receive the spiritual seeds from heaven regarding financial provision, we receive the faith of God which allows us to receive the Lord’s power, to supernaturally add to us food and clothes. Through the redeeming work of Jesus Christ, we are made whole and complete, free from the evils of sickness, disease, poverty, devils, and all that is destructive and corrupting to our spirit, mind, emotions, and bodies. This is the great work which Jesus Christ achieved for humanity through His being cursed for us on the Cross of Calvary (Galatians 3:13-14). By whose stripes ye were healed (1 Peter 2:24). (An exception to freedom from evil is the suffering and persecution we experience for righteousness, and the gospel’s, sake, even sometimes to the point of martyrdom (Acts 9:16, Philippians 1:29, 1 Peter 3:14)).
Inerrancy of Scripture
To receive the awesome power of this great gospel of Jesus Christ, faith in God’s written promises in the bible is required (2 Corinthians 1:20, Hebrews 6:12). Therefore, belief in the inerrancy, or divine inspiration, of the Scripture is a fundamental foundation for receiving the power of the gospel (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21). This is because the Scripture teaches the principle that if we doubt, or waver in our faith, we should not expect to receive anything from the Lord (James 1:6-8). If we doubt the inerrancy of Scripture, then it logically follows that we will also doubt God’s written promises, and when we waver in our faith, we will not receive the power of the Gospel.
Meditation of the Lord’s promises
Meditation of the Lord’s written promises in the Scripture is a fundamental, foundational discipline to receiving the power of the gospel. Without meditation our minds easily conform to the low life of this devil infested world with its poverty, lack, sickness, disease and fear. Meditation of God’s promises produces the faith in our hearts, and the discipline in our minds, to rise above the sickness, poverty, and plagues which dominate much of this world (Romans 10:17, Romans 12:2). The tide of this world attempts to suck us down into the devilish abyss of sin, wickedness, corruption, lies, deceit, sickness and poverty. However, as we meditate the Lord’s honourable promises our hearts are lifted up with faith and inspiration, and our minds are corrected and aligned in unity with the Lord (Isaiah 40:29-31).
Our tongues will then speak of the wonders of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ, and our lives will receive His miracle power and reflect His glory. It will be as if Jesus Himself were physically present with us, walking beside us every moment of every day, using His power to heal and sustain us like He did with His disciples in Israel approximately 2016 years ago.
Dear Lord, thank you for this teaching regarding living unto righteousness. Thank you that through faith in Jesus Christ our spirits have been set free to live unto righteousness, free from devil spirits, spiritual death, and sin. Thank you that Jesus has also delivered power to us to be free from the evils of sickness, disease and poverty. Thank you that as we seek first your kingdom, through meditating your promises, we can rise up in faith to receive your power and experience the great freedom contained in the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. We love and bless you in Jesus Christ name. Amen.
