|“In the last days, God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.'” (Acts 2:17-18, NIV, and through whole book).||“ .. a crowd came together, each one heard .. in his own language, Parthians, Medes, Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus, Asia, Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt .. Libya .. visitors from Rome .. Jews .. Cretans, Arabs .. we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” (Acts 2:6ff).|
We exist to receive and obey the Holy Spirit moving in us to create corps of trustworthy, disciplined, skilled, effective, intimate partners in God’s Love to multiply and reproduce God’s good and to eliminate evil in God’s ongoing creation of the Kingdom of God.
This is not a public forum. More than ninety-nine percent of our work happens offline and in the world: in businesses, clinics, homes, hospitals, institutions, shelters, shops, on the streets, in off-the-radar mission venues, in urban and real jungles, in venues dark, very dark, and sometimes violent. More than ninety-nine percent of our online collaborations are confidential, privacy protected (HIPPA), and in secure direct communications (SDC) – never available to the public.
We hope that gleanings from our few public pages inform and inspire public readers. We hope these few public pages motivate questions, prayers, reflections, answers and commitments for readers who are considering full-time training in advanced discipleship. Some readers who use 3FA authentications are free to post comments, revelations of visions, dreams, prophecies (Acts 2:17-18), and prayers related to our missions. These friends do not have access to confidential, private, and secure information. They contribute to missions through revelations and prayers. We thank these public friends – including anonymous prayer partners and anonymous supporters – anonymous friends who we have never met.
Our narrow purpose is training in advanced discipleship. A small number of full-time trainers train with a small number of full-time students for hearing and obeying the Holy Spirit in missions in the world. For ratios of trainers to students, see here. Full-time training involves 40-80+ hour work weeks. These work weeks include written, logged prayers from 3-12 hours of prayer on average daily, namely, logs and records of daily listening-prayer to receive practical mission instructions from the Spirit (“Speak, for your servant is listening,” 1 Samuel 3:10). The constitution for us individually, and the primary contract between trainers and students for full-time training is daily discipleship in this requirement for listening-prayer – “But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will repay you” (Matthew 6:6).
The definition of “full-time” training is the 40-80+ hour work weeks of service in the world that include 3-12 hours daily of logged, written, shared collaborative listening-prayers – these are the simplest definitions of full-time training. Listening to YouTubes, online sermons, music, attending church meetings for sermons and bible studies, including attending big-name seminars and completing advanced seminary training do not count. The command to shut the door (Matthew 6:6) means privately abiding alone with the Spirit to listen for practical and specific mission instructions – daily – before exiting from private listening in order to share written revelations for service with other team members in corps in full-time service. Our objective in daily prayer is not to get more holy as defined by the holiness codes of over 45,000 denominations and independent local churches worldwide – our objective in listening-prayer is to grow more wholly obedient daily to practical, daily instructions of the Holy Spirit. If you have a holiness code, live it (Romans 14). Our focus is in daily listening-prayer in order to grow more obedient to practical, on-earth instructions of the Holy Spirit given uniquely for our missions in the world. For examples see, “Examples and Testimonies ~ Instructions Given in Listening-Prayer ~ Matt 6:6.”
This training is not basic level (not “milk [for] infants,” Hebrews 5:12-13), that is, this training is not for simple, introductory, entry-level discipleship of a few minutes daily of prayer and some practical action like visiting a lonely person – valid, valuable, and good acts of introductory discipleship. This training is not intermediate level discipleship for young or older adults to practice a few more minutes in prayer and then do apprentice levels of service like serving daily in a soup kitchen – again, valuable forms of service. Our training is advanced discipline in full-time discipleship in hands-on, face to face, practical service. Our 40-80+ hour work weeks of service in the world that include 3-12 hours daily of logged, shared, and collaborative prayers are not for adding more time to existing work weeks, but instead, to add more listening in prayer for specific instructions and obedience to the Spirit in the practical work that the Spirit has already given us in our callings, vocations, and missions in the world. The locations for full-time service include the variety of places listed as venues above, namely, “businesses, clinics, homes, hospitals, institutions, shelters, shops, on the streets, in off-the-radar mission venues, in urban and real jungles, in venues dark, very dark, and sometimes violent.” Models for practical services of advanced discipleship are introduced here, “Three Main Models for Full-Time Training – 1. Master Skill-Vocational – 2. Healing-Medical – 3. Warfare-Military.” Requirements for students are here, “Requirements for Full-time Students.”
We do not train individuals to work alone as solo lone rangers. We reject individual, lone-operator, solo heroes as dangerous to full-time teams in violent, sensitive, confidential missions that demand exact, precise, mature teamwork. See more here, “Double Struck Dead ~ No Solo Lone Rangers” and also see “Struck Dead – Acts 5:1-11 – Dead? – or Just Encrypted?” Our focus on mandatory teamwork of students and trainers working together in corps instead of working as solo individuals is for another reason. A ten-fold, exponential increase in effectiveness in service is created by God exponentially blessing full-time listening-prayers and obedience in teams as corps – “one will chase a thousand and two put ten thousand to flight” (Deuteronomy 32:30, and Leviticus 26:8) This amounts to a ten-fold, exponential increase in effectiveness beyond working solo as individuals. Jesus sent disciples out in corps as small as two by two to bring the Kingdom to others (Luke 10:1 and following). This ten-fold, exponential increase in effectiveness from God blessing full-time teams, compared to individuals working alone. reflects God’s call to teams – as teams – to bear fruit that will last – “You [plural] did not choose me, but I chose you [plural] and appointed you [plural] so that you [plural] might go and bear fruit – fruit that will last – and so that whatever you [plural] ask in my name the Father will give you [plural], John 15:16).
In our daily practice, exponential, ten-fold increases in effective service come from God blessing trainers who have a minimum of 20 years of full-time experience in the field working together with full-time students who have a minimum of five years of full-time experience. The key to teamwork in these corps is not in counting our years of experience, but is in staying humble together to seek and listen to the Holy Spirit in full-time listening-prayer, followed by obedience in corps seeking ten-fold, exponential increases in effectiveness added by the Holy Spirit. Unfortunately, the ten-fold increase works equally for ill and negative effects. There is a subtle form today of the ancient practice of lukewarm or evil leaders, from kings to common followers, in teams across all cultures, through all religions, in all regions, across all human history who seek equally lukewarm or evil partners, usually called “friends,” who tell teams what they want to hear. Merely adding one person to another in two-fold agreement, not based on full-time listening-prayer to get specific mission instructions, and not followed by full-time specific obedience, can result in ten-fold, exponential increases in ignorance, lukewarmness, wishful magical thinking, incompetence and serious harm to others. The ten-fold increase in incompetent and harmful service to others due to lukewarm and compromised commitments are illustrated here, Matthew 17:14-20, and here, Mark 9:14–29, here Luke 9:37–42, and especially 1 Corinthians 11:30. For the more serious ten-fold increase in the hidden fraud of claiming to be sold-out while lying about it, see “Double Struck Dead.”
Our purpose is not religious argument, theological debate, nor the creation of safe, easy, entertainment-based church environments or religious membership clubs. Our members in full-time corps come from various church families and different traditions, see here, and for the diversity of students and trainers see bios, here. For more about mission details, mission venues, full-time workweeks, full-time prayer, and covenant-agreements for training. see here, here, and here. Fact-based research and science studies about exponential increases of effectiveness of teams can be found here and here. Students and trainers have specific covenant-agreements as contracts of shared promises and mutual obligations that are highly defined for unique and individual details of personal training that go far beyond these generic, bare-bones comments. Specific, detailed, personalized covenant-commitments for training are unique for each individual in their particular callings. These detailed covenants are for – knowing that we know – rather than guessing that we know, or assuming that we know, or lying that we know about how to operate in ten-fold effectiveness (1 John 2:3, again, for lying see, “Double Struck Dead“).
It is said that the devil is in the details – it is more true that ten-fold increases in intimacy with God, and ten-fold increases in effective service in the Kingdom of God, are in ten-fold increases in attention in listening to the Holy Spirit for details of obedience. In details of daily practice, individuals in teams moved by the Spirit provide the second, third, and greater numbers of partners for mutual confirmation, clarification, correction, for double checking and testing each other in criticism, for mutual encouragement in constant listening-prayer and obedience to the Spirit in service. It was to teams as corps that Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, I tell you truly that if two of you on the earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by My Father in heaven. For where two or three gather together in My name, there am I with them” (Matthew 18:18-19, and John 16:23–33). The failure of these same teams to practice full-time listening and obedience in prayer is severely exposed in Matthew 17:14-20, Mark 9:14–29, and Luke 9:37–42 – where the same disciples as teams failed to bind and loose specific events with the devil in intimate details in the disciples’ failures of effective service.
We know these truths – and we know that we know them (1 John 2:3) – because we have failed painfully in exactly these commitments. We thank God for Mercy, Grace, and Forgiveness that include chances to start over again and get it right. We painfully know the contrast between real full-time obedience versus the witchcraft of disobedience (1 Samuel 15:23), including the witchcraft of lukewarmness, the witchcraft of lying about lukewarmness, and the witchcraft of pretending to be sold-out like Ananias and Sapphira pretended – and were struck dead for lying about it. We know that we know because we have both failed in the witchcraft of disobedience and also succeeded in obeying unto mature, full-time commitments blessed with ten-fold effectiveness. We have experienced the specific, practical, on-earth results of 10,000 broken hearts, confusions, evils, human traffickings and slavery, lonelinesses, physical and mental abuses and oppressions, poverties, and sicknesses loosened to flow into healing. We have experienced these effects in exponential, ten-fold increases in working together in teams that God has blessed. For more examples of practical, on-earth, physical and spiritual results that God creates to advance the Kingdom of God through ten-fold, exponential increases in teams see, “Impossible – Specific, Concrete, Real-life Meaning.”
God wants teams to mature and abide in ten-fold, exponential effectiveness over sustained time. Teams mature over years to refine ongoing, enduring, full-time agreements and obedience for overcoming, rather than settling down to camp in superficial, lukewarm, immature, easily broken agreements. God makes exponential, ten-fold increases in effectiveness mature over time and become reality in united action – for corps to experience 10,000 broken hearts, confusions, evils, human traffickings and slavery, lonelinesses, physical and mental abuses and oppressions, poverties, and sicknesses to be loosened to flow into healing, and for corps to make and execute judgments to bind, destroy, and terminate 10,000 dark, and very dark covenant-evils across all scales that cause harm, and death. The Kingdom of God is at war with kingdoms and agencies of evil, human and demonic (see, 1 John 3:8, and see Judgment, Justice, and War). It is Love that goes to war in binding and destroying evils that cause suffering and harm (1 John 3:8). It is Love that goes to war to bless with ten-fold increases of inflowing Love, quiet peace, gentle calm, joy in abundant life, and daily fullness of the Spirit overflowing into ten-fold effective service in corps. The entire book of Acts – including the many new-lifes and many deaths – is what full-time trust and obedience looks like in full-time corps in daily practice.
Trainers and students want to mature together in service – “But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of judgment trained by constant practice to distinguish [judge] good from evil” (Hebrews 5:14). This result of maturity is a promise to teams, a promise to corps, a promise to people serving together in units. This maturity is for people working together in corps of constant practice in full-time obedience and it is not a promise of maturity to part-time individuals working alone, nor to teams of part-time, casual, half-committed peers who do mostly what they want to do. We are not earning our salvation, nor earning merit, nor seeking the empty praise of humans (Matthew 6) . We are standing full-time in the benefits and free gifts of God’s Grace made real, effective, and powerful on earth by the Holy Spirit. One blessing that bounces back on teams doing service full-time is the blessing of experiencing God create “the wonders of God” in practical, on-earth effects (Acts 2:11), plus the added blessing that in corps – “the disciples were continually filled [full-time] with joy and with the Holy Spirit” (Acts 13:52).
Finally, the mature gift of discernment “to distinguish good from evil” in corps (“solid food is for the mature,” Hebrews 5:14), is not discernment merely for seeing good and seeing evil, and then doing nothing about them. The underlying word for discernment includes a root word for judgment leading to action to bless the good for ten-fold increases, and to judge and act in ten-fold effects to destroy works of evil (1 John 3:8). The gift of discernment is given for us to know and judge in the Spirit what to bind and loose (Matthew 18:18-19, and John 16:23–33). Both ten-fold increases – judgments to increase good and judgments to destroy works of evil – are equal parts of the Kingdom of God coming on earth daily, as our daily bread (Matthew 6:10, 11, and Luke 11:3). Every time Jesus blessed or gave withering curses while training His own original corps in full-time training, the Kingdom of God advanced – daily. “But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the Kingdom of God has come upon you” (Matthew 12:28).
These commitments are rigorous. They require – “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Mark 12:30) – because we have been given all – “We love because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19). These commitments cost all – “we have left everything to follow you!” (Mark 10:28). They cost our lives.
Possible in the Kingdom of God.
