Likes, Numbers, Fame, and Crowds

7 Reasons that Kingdom Disciple Makers Don’t Worry About Likes, Numbers, Fame, and Crowds

1. MULTIPLICATION IS GREATER THAN ADDITION: A Kingdom disciple makers impact is not in addition, but in Multiplication. Your greatest rewards will come from the people you train, and from the people that copy you from afar as you copy Christ. In Acts, the Apostles focused on multiplication, and God did the addition (Acts 2:42-47). Crowds aren’t the goal. Fruit is.
2 John 1: 4 I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
3 John 1: 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
1 Corinthians 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. 2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.

2. WISDOM CRIES OUT! Wisdom Cries out! A true Kingdom disciple maker gives out information FOR FREE that psychologists, motivational speakers, gurus, business consultants, and counselors can charge thousands of dollars for. Whoever can’t see the value in it, they just weren’t ready for it. A kingdom servant has to be okay with that. Your goal is fruit for the kingdom, not likes and crowds.
Prov 8:1 Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice? 2 She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths. 3 She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.4 Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man. 5 O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.
Proverbs 9: 3 She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city…

3. SWINE DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH PEARLS: When you cast pearls before swine, the swine hate you and try to destroy you. A kingdom minister doesn’t need a crowd of swine following them. A Kingdom disciple makers goal is to be like Jesus and obey God by preaching the hard things that will weed out the swine.
Matthew 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
John 6: 60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it? 61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?…66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?

4. ENVY BRINGS MURDER: With Crowds come Envy, With Envy Comes Murder. A kingdom disciple maker resists being lifted up because envy will bring murderous assignments from the devil, from your sin, from other people, or from people’s hearts and mouths. It wisdom to hide your success from the devil for as long as possible. Even Jesus tried to keep things quiet for as long as possible. Even Jesus saved his biggest miracle for when it was time to be crucified. He knew that envy brings a spirit of murder.
Proverbs 27:4 Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy?
Matthew 27:18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
1 Corinthians 2: 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

5. THE MEEK WILL INHERIT THE EARTH: The Meek shall inherit the earth. When Jesus comes back, obedient servants get rewarded with actual property and wealth (not to mention a position in His Kingdom). Whatever you don’t get paid for now, you’ll get double later! So a kingdom disciple maker doesn’t need the money from crowds now. You’ll get much more later.
Psalm 37: 9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
Matt 5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

6. IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD AND PEOPLE. It’s impossible to please people and God at the same time. This is a kingdom principle. Faith pleases God. If your faith is in people liking you, then you don’t really believe in God at all. Kingdom disciple makers understand this.
John 5:44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
Galatians 1:10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

7. A PURE HEART BRINGS OUT THE POWER OF YAHUAH: If your heart is pure towards God, He will show himself strong on your behalf. When you put faith in God with a pure heart, God can do the most amazing things in the earth. This can ONLY happen when a Kingdom disciple maker is NOT concerned about Likes, Numbers and Crowds.
2 Chronicles 16:9a 9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him…
Matthew 6:6 and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
