Discipleship Comes BEFORE Miracles

Jesus had Disciples based on the Word BEFORE He did any miracles or gathered any crowds.

Before Jesus did one miracle:

– He had 12 disciples that were completely repented according to the Baptism of John.

– These 12 were following Him in repentance and being taught the kingdom.

False Prophets use miracles and crowds to get disciples INSTEAD of making disciples based on the Word.

False Converts won’t follow any Discipleship based on the Word UNLESS they first see miracles and crowds.

True Disciples follow Jesus for The Word.

John 6:

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?

68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

Crowds follow the Provision (fishes & loaves).
Hypocrites follow the Talent (Luke 12:1).
Opportunists can follow the Anointing (Judas & Zealots).
Disciples follow the Word.

John 6:68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE.

Jannes & Jambres: Satan’s Magicians Do Wise Miracles to Avoid Repentance

Jannes & Jambres: Satan’s Magicians Do Wise Miracles to Avoid Repentance

Whenever God does miracles to confirm his message of repentance and obedience… Satan’s next step is not to back down or give up. Satan’s response is always to raise up the same miracles to compete with God’s, but distract men from God’s Goal – the message of repentance and obedience.

Exodus 7:10 And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the Lord had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent.11 Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.12 For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods. 13 And he hardened Pharaoh’s heart, that he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had said.

Mind Boggling Power, but Satan can do it too

First of all, realize that this was a crazy miracle. A literal piece of wood was transformed into a snake. God did this miracle to show that He had power over matter. Then Pharoah had his magicians do the same miracle! Imagine a literal piece of wood turning into a snake. That’s mind-boggling. But people that didn’t know God could do it too, with magic and wisdom.

Recognizing the Pattern

This is a pattern that you can observe often in the Kingdom of God. Whenever God moves to bring a message of repentance and obedience to bring freedom to a people or a generation – Satan brings opposition. Satan does this by clever imitation and competition. Just like Pharoah, Satan knows that if he can get someone to do the same thing God is doing, he can get people to avoid God’s message of repentance.

So if God does miracles, Satan will have somebody do miracles and avoid the message of repentance and obedience.

If God shows love, Satan will have someone show love and avoid the message of repentance and obedience.

If God brings wants to bring revival to a city, Satan will raise up someone with power to do the same thing, while avoiding the message of repentance and obedient uncomfortable change.

If God wants to rescue a generation, Satan will raise up counterfeits using wisdom to reach a generation, while they avoid the ultimate message of repentance and change.

This is why the Spirit of AntiChrist gets stronger and stronger the closer we get to Jesus Christs return. There are many antiChrists, and the ultimate AntiChrist will amaze the world with miracles, signs, and wonders – only to distract people from the Spirit of Elijah and the Law of Moses that God will be confirming with supernatural power and two specific witnesses (Revelations 11:3-7).

The 2nd Testament calls this “Resisting the Truth.”

2 Timothy 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

In the 2nd Testament we find out the names of these wise magicians… Jannes and Jambres. They eventually couldn’t really match the power of God, but they did their best and competed for a while… all to help Pharoah avoid obedience.

True Spiritual Light Forces the Spectacle of Hatred or the Miracle of Repentance

*[[Joh 3:20-21]] KJV* For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Jesus called us the light of the world, because we reflect Him. He also said to “marvel not” (don’t be amazed) if the world hates you. So if we are the light of the world, why does the world hate us?

The answer is found in John 3:20-21. Jesus Christ summarizes the psychological state of everyone in the whole world.

People that do evil hate the light – emotional opposition
They refuse to come to it – avoidance in action
Because their deeds are reproved – why? they want to avoid their actions being spoken against.

People that do the truth come to the light. – they dont avoid it
They want their deeds to be exposed as obedience to God.

So if sinners hide from the light, and we are the light, what is the link between people that do evil and people that do truth? One word- Repentance.

Repentance is when people who evil come to the light to get their deeds reproved and change their works to works done in God.

Repentance – the greatest miracle on earth. The only miracle that heaven rejoices over.

Jesus called John the Baptist a “burning and a shining light” and the “greatest man born of a women.” Greater than Elijah and Elisha, and all he did was get people to repent – without any other miracles.

Then he said that the least in the kingdom is greater than JtB. That means that those in the kingdom of heaven would get a lot of people to repent… Plus more. Jesus showed us this by example. Many repentant sinners followed Him, plus He did other miracles and healings.

Notice that the link between believers and unbelievers is not compromising or turning the light down. Its not subjugating your light to the darkness. Its the other way around!

Yes its the goodness of God that leads people to repentance. And its the obedient preacher that gives them something to repent from! Repentance is not achieved by our intelligence, but by a miracle of God in response to the foolishness of preaching.

A Notable Miracle | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11:11:11 – Day 3 –

A Notable Miracle

We want everyone to believe God for BIG things to happen on 11-11-11! Not only at Ford Field, but all over the nations. There are major prayer gatherings happening all over the world. Its the Global Day of Worship. There are stadiums being filled with prayer and worship in Egypt, in Australia, and in many other places… Not to mention that The Call will be streamed live across the planet on www.godtv.com. The last time the Body of Christ was on one accord like this, something MAJOR happened:

1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come , they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting . 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance . Acts 2

When the Holy Ghost comes like rushing mighty wind, He blows fire on His body, and they are filled with the Holy Ghost and manifest gifts of the Spirit. There was another time when the people of God were threatened by their enemies of tradition and religion. The people of God came together and prayed on one accord. Do you know what happened? Boldness came, the place shook, people were healed of sicknesses and diseases, and practical unity manifested.

29 And now, Lord, behold *their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, 30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus. 31 And when they had prayed , the place was shaken where they were assembled together ; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness. 32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither *said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. 33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. Acts 4

Let’s pray that as the Body of Christ is on one accord again on 11-11-11, God would manifest a notable miracle!

Make your way to Detroit on 11-11-11 for The Call. Pray with us. Join people all over Detroit that are fasting and praying in preparation for God to do something BIG in our city, nation, and world… NOW. Yes, NOW.
