Here at From His Presence®, we have 4 specific purposes. In no particular order, these purposes are:
1. We pray and fast.
We believe that prayer is the #1 force that leads God to move on the earth. It is the vehicle by which God will move to cover the earth with the knowledge of His glory as the waters cover the sea.
Therefore, we consider prayer (and prayer with fasting) to be our #1 responsibility:
- We pray for our readers.
- We pray for God's Kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
- We pray for apostles and pastors.
- We pray for revival and the Third Great Awakening to come to the Church at large.
2. We equip the saints.
Ephesians 4:11-12 commissions us thus:
And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ …”
We strive always to equip individual believers to function in purity, holiness, and power while operating in their God-given gifts.
3. We support apostles and pastors.
As a prophetic organization, we believe a large part of our role is to support apostles and pastors in the local church. First Corinthians 12:27-28 says:
Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.”
We are one body, but some have more burden, more publicity, and a harder road to tread than others. Apostles and pastors fit that description. As a prophetic organization, we believe our role is second in the five-fold ministry hierarchy because we are to support those who are first. We are helpers, assistants, and servants as Christ–the ultimate Prophet, Priest, and King–exemplified.
Our support of apostles and pastors looks like several things:
We serve in our own local churches first and foremost. We always exist to build up the local church, not tear it down.
We pray and intercede.
When asked, we also help apostles and pastors amplify their voices by taking their ministries online to the greatest extent possible. We believe that e-commerce is THE vehicle God has invented in order to bring the great transfer of wealth into the Kingdom, and we help five-fold ministers tap into that river through professional training.
When physical needs come to our attention and are appropriately vetted, we help apostles and pastors as best we can.
4. We proclaim God's Word.
Second Timothy 4:1-5 charges us:
I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:
Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”
We proclaim God's Word through every means possible:
- Prophecy; and
- All appropriate use of technology.
God has promised us every nation on the earth for His glory, and we labor to that end.
Your support of this ministry bears fruit in every corner of the earth, every day. Thank you for reading, subscribing to email updates, and co-laboring with us to increase God's Kingdom on the earth!
