Christian University Kingdom Worldview

Kingdom Life University represents education through a kingdom world view.  Jesus said, "This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world unto all nations, then end will come."  Matthew 24:14.  KLU's founder, Jerry Brandt has been in ministry now for 50 years, much of it on the front lines of national and international evangelism, street ministry and broadcast on radio and television.  Jerry brings to KLU the experience of training churches through practical outreach and evangelism teaching .   His school of kingdom witnessing teaches this form of authority evangelism. 

What is a kingdom world view? The gospel of the kingdom of God is mentioned 153 times in the New Testament.  It is a gospel of the authority of Jesus Christ as King over all things.  It means releasing Jesus authority on earth "Now" through "power evangelism" and in the future as He reigns in person on earth. Jerry is passionate about preparing the bride of Christ, the church, to learn the principles of "reigning in life" now.  This KINGDOM mentality makes Kingdom Life University unique from most Christian colleges and Universities.  It is not just higher education, it is kingdom power and authority teaching.  Jerry has practiced this kind of evangelism now since 1976 when He received the baptism of the Holy Spirit.  Jerry shares his story.  "I was on a mountain side outside of Estes Park, Colorado waiting on God when I felt a clear message come to my spirit from the Holy Spirit.  He said I was to focus the rest of my ministry on the 'Kingdom of God'.  I hardly knew what that meant coming out of a strong dispensational, fundamentalist Baptist background and graduating from Bob Jones University. I spent the next 8 years diligently seeking God and studying everything I could on the 'Kingdom of God'. It has been a journey into the realm of revelation on how Jesus Christ's authority works in my life and on planet earth today." 

Kingdom Life University is now positioned to take this message around the world with 53 national directors in 19 nations leading multiple campuses and equipping thousands of international students.  KLU is now launching campuses in the USA!  If your church is interested in more information about a TURNKEY KLU campus you can simply fill out this form.  KLU USA CAMPUS   If you know of any student interested in this kind of training please fill out this form.  USA student inquiry

Revelation - Jesus Love Letter to His Bride

Most people look at the book of Revelation as a book of Judgment and full of terrorizing images.  What they don't see is the true message of the book... LOVE!  It is Jesus "Love Letter" to His bride.. the church!   The entire book of Revelation starts out with "to Him who loved us and washed us from our sins by His own blood and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever."   Chapter 1 is the Person of Love.. Jesus Christ Himself.  Chapters 2 - 3 are His love letters to the 7 churches and Jesus desire for intimacy with us by telling us everything that stands between us and Him. Like a forsaken lover He cries "You have left your first love"!  Chapters 4 - 5 tells of the source of love.. the very throne of God.  All true love in the universe comes from there.  Chapters 6 - 19 tells of the extent Jesus is willing to go through to remove all evil from planet earth to create a home for us to reign with him for a 1,000 years!  These powerful chapters show the Cleansing Power of Love by allowing judgment on all that has come against His people Israel and the bride of Christ.  Like the days of Noah where the earth was cleansed by water, Jesus will now allow the earth to be cleansed by fire!  Peter says, "The elements (atoms) will melt with a fervent heat..."  Out of it will come the most beautiful planet ever seen.  Eden will again be created on earth as Satan will be bound 1,000 years and the curse will be lifted from planet earth.  Romans 8:21 says, "Because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God"   Chapters 20 - 22 are His eternal purpose of LOVE.. to abide with us forever and ever in oneness and unity! 

Why did John the apostle receive the book of Revelation?  Because he saw himself as the disciple "Whom Jesus Loved"  Love opens up our ability to receive revelation from Christ.  Christ's wisdom is hidden and must be discovered through LOVE.  "In Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge."  says the book of Colossians. But LOVE unveils it!   Therefore Satan's greatest lie is to make people doubt God's love and reject it.  He wounds us and deceives us into believing that God is not absolute goodness and love. He makes people think that the book of Revelation is God's hatred of mankind.... an absolute lie!  The only judgment God has placed upon man's sin was at the cross...and Jesus took it fully and satisfied the JUSTICE of God completely when He said, "IT IS FINISHED". 

The judgments of Revelation are "Each man is judged according to HIS OWN WORKS".  Ask Jesus this season to reveal His love to you and then by faith began to declare it over your soul, mind and will.  Let your imagination soar into the vision of His unending, unhindered and awesome love.  Keep saying, "I am the disciple whom Jesus loves until your mind accepts it."  Your future depends on it!

Tribulation Temple & Two Witnesses - Rev. 11

Revelation 11 clearly teaches that God is going to again deal with the nation Israel in the future.  The antichrist, at the beginning of the tribulation, will make a peace agreement (covenant) with Israel for seven years assuring peace and giving permission to rebuilt her sacred temple.  The Orthodox Jews are already making final preparations like breeding the red heifer whose ashes are needed to dedicate it, making the menorah, locating the ark of the covenant and architectural plans.  Many experts believe that the mosque of Omar does not need to be destroyed, but the actual temple excavations show 100 yards north of the mosque is the real location for the rebuilding of the temple.  All indications are we are getting ready for the fulfillment of these things.  After the start of the tribulation period, God will send two witnesses, many believe are Moses and Elijah, to walk the streets of Jerusalem again and prophesy.  After all, Moses and Elijah had already appeared in New Testament times on the mount of transfiguration. They will speak great words of insight to the Jewish people and preclude a major revival and spiritual awakening.  They will be killed by the beast out of the pit, the antichrist who makes war with them, and their bodies will be left on the streets of Jerusalem to decay.  But after three days, on world wide television, they will raise from the dead and ascend back into heaven as the world watches. People will be amazed and full of fear realizing the miraculous is happening right in front of their eyes.  Following their ascension, tremendous persecution breaks out on Israel and the antichrist desecrates their temple in the middle of the tribulation.  This is Israel's signal to flee to the mountains and caves for safety.  But the two witnesses and the 144,000 chosen Jewish evangelists from earlier Revelation studies, will have a powerful effect on Israel spiritual awakening.  God will open her eyes and the nation will look on the one whom they pierced, Jesus Christ, and finally realize He was the final sacrifice for their sins.  The nations will be converted in a "day"!

Declaring Dominion - Revelation 10

Revelation chapter 10 is another parenthesis in the progression of catastrophic events that happens on the earth. John must of have been overwhelmed by all the destruction in the seals and trumpet judgments.  So Jesus gives John a break and reassures him that He is still in control of all that is happening on the land and the sea.  Between the 6th and 7th trumpets, Jesus Christ again declares His ownership over the earth.  This "mighty angel" describes none other than the Lamb of God...Jesus Christ.  The rainbow about His head speaks of mercy amidst judgment.  The two feet of brass speak of judgment that is being released on the evil of planet earth.  He is clothed in a cloud which again defines Jesus.    For example, He is "taken up in a cloud" in His ascension.  This "mighty angel" had one foot on the land and the other in the sea.  Jesus had received the "title deed" to planet earth in Revelation 5. He now applies this title deed by physically planting His feet. The last half of the tribulation is now coming called the GREAT TRIBULATION. So by appearing on earth, Jesus is preparing John and us for what is about to happen.  He alone was the only one WORTHY to take the seals and open them.  Jesus has ownership of planet earth for two reasons.  First by creation.  He has original patent rights!  Colossians says, "By Him all things were created in heaven and earth and He is before all things".  Second, whatever had been stolen by Satan, Jesus went back and purchased by His blood.  So He owns it by redemption!  John is then given a small scroll and told to eat it.  It is sweet to his taste, but becomes bitter in his stomach.  Then John is told to prophecy the words of this scroll. The words again become sweet to his taste as he speaks the prophetic word.  This releases the prophetic as we will see this gift released to the saints during the tribulation.  God has always given His people prophetic revelation in times of tribulation.  Believers during the tribulation will be operating strongly in the prophetic for both direction and protection.  The prophetic has a two-fold edge.  It is both sweet and bitter.  The word of God is "quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."  It will be sweet to those in obedience, but bitter to those opposing God We can rest assured that Jesus is in control of all the events through the book of Revelation!

John Macarthur Error

"Mark those that cause division among you".  In a season in which God is calling the body of Christ into greater unity in answer to Jesus prayer, "That they may be one, Father as we are one that the world my know you have sent me...." (John 17), we have those that feel it is there calling to police, in the name of "sound doctrine", the work of the Holy Spirit in others and the church. Coming out from a fundamental, evangelical background and historically dispensational, I know the language that John is speaking.  However, in 1976 I encountered the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which changed my life and ministry, and have forever been delivered from negative, judgmental partial truth dividing the body of Christ. Are there abuses in the charismatic circles.. certainly. Are there abuses in the Baptist circles... absolutely.  Are there abuses in the evangelical circles... absolutely. I know a well known Baptist pastor who committed adultery with another man's wife.  That does not make all Baptist pastors adulterers. We live in an imperfect world of people that make mistakes and don't always do the right thing.  The fire of God does give space for some unusual manifestations.  We will probably see more unusual things happen toward the end of this age.  But let God deal with those that go to the extreme.  I personally have never met anyone that didn't come to Christ in salvation because the fire of someone else was too hot or too expressive.  John Macarthur is stepping over the line in creating a council of judgment against God's people.  His "Strange Fire" conference is doing just that.  I sent multiple emails to John before his conference encouraging him to not do such a thing.  He, however, didn't even answer my emails.  I am sure he just wrote me off as another extremist.  I do, however, have a passion for exegetical, contextual, systematic teaching of the word of God and have a 24/7 radio broadcast network that I teach through the New Testament from Acts to Revelation every 5 days world-wide on the internet.  So I am not just bringing attention to John Macarthur without doing my part to deliver good bible teaching chapter by chapter. I just have felt a burden for some time now about John's unfortunate exercise of drawing attention to the few things that separate the body of Christ because of differences in interpretation.  I am without apology a tongue speaking, Spirit baptized,  healing and delivering evangelist that bases all my work on the strong foundation of God's word ALONE.  Hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit and obeying the Father's commands as best I know how.  Do I miss the mark?  Let every man be judged by his own works!  I heard the saying, "every tub has to sit on it's own bottom" ... that's not in the bible by the way, but good practical wisdom.  Just don't come along and try to dump me out of my tub!  I am enjoying my "fire" experience daily in the Holy Spirit.  John, how can your call your ministry "Grace to You" and not show it?

Signs In The Heavens

Jesus said one of the great signs of the end times is what would be seen in the heavens.  The seventh seal of Revelation 8 opens up the 7 trumpets of judgments upon the earth.  Each trumpet releasing another massive destruction.   In Rev. 6, 1/4 of mankind dies from famines and pestilence.  In Rev. 8, another 1/3 of mankind dies from heaven & earth shaking events.  A comet called wormwood strikes the ocean and effects 1/3 of rivers and waters and they turn to blood (color from comet effects).  Hail of fire falls and 1/3 of all trees (fruit) and grass (wheat) burn up. 1/3 of the day will disappear as the heavy cloud covering effects fill the sky. This will cause widespread starvation as food shortages began to take their toll.  These will be times like we have not seen upon the earth in our lifetime. Literally billions will die. What are we to do?  The Holy Spirit is speaking to the true bride of Christ and the church that is listening to the His voice.  "Get ready for what is coming on planet earth" is what he is saying.  "We are not the children of darkness that that day should overtake us as a thief", says the apostle Paul.  The church, during the tribulation will have the Joseph anointing that he had in Egypt when God spoke to him and told him of the 7 years of famine coming.  We will be ready and supplied with enough not only for our own families, but for others.  This will be one of the greatest witnessing tools to win many to Christ.  That is why there will be the greatest harvest in history during the tribulation of those days.  John said he saw a multitude of Gentiles "..that no man could number" come out of the tribulation.  I have one strong word... if you know Christ and are secure in His love, DO NOT BE FEARFUL.  God's love is going to be absolutely present in your heart and home and you will see the mighty hand of God touch and keep your family.  Paul said, "Who can separate us from the love of Christ, can tribulation or distress.."  In Romans 8.  Only the world without Christ will experience what John said, "Men's hearts will fail them for fear of what is happening on earth."

Through the Bible - Sound Doctrine

God's word is God's power unto salvation to everyone who believes.  Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.  (Hebrews 11)  "The word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."  (Hebrews 4:12) You cannot measure the power of God's word in human terms.  It will absolutely deliver you from every force on earth that opposes God.  But you must understand it, apply it and believe it.  That is why SOUND DOCTRINE is foundational to effective kingdom living.  But many people do not have an understanding of the basics of systematic, contextual biblical knowledge. Most are limited to truth that does not come out of balanced teaching exegetically through the bible.  To gain wisdom you need to compare scripture with scripture. That is the only protection from deception.  Satan misquoted the bible in Jesus temptation. Satan said "for it is written..." to Jesus.  He said to Eve. "God hath indeed said..." in Genesis.  Most cults choose only certain distinct scriptures and build their false doctrine on them out of the context of the entire bible.  Paul said, "All scripture is given by inspiration and is profitable for doctrine..."  Again he said, "Rightly dividing the word of God."  That is why I have launched Through the Bible teaching chapter by chapter.  I teach from Acts to Revelation (165 chapters) in 3 days of 24/7 online streaming broadcast.  You can download our "App" on your android phone or device.  Just go to google "Play store" and search for "kbbnetwork".  Install it and drag it to your phone or pad face.  With just one touch you can be listening to the word of God being taught systematically, exegetically and contextually chapter by chapter.  This extensive teaching took two solid years of study and audio recording daily. If you like video, you can also view the books of Matthew and Revelation on my online video channel at..

Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

Revelation 6 is the opening of the first six seals and is the start of what Jesus called in Matthew 24 the "beginning of sorrows".  It is the initiation of the coming judgments on earth released by the riders of the four horsemen.  The first horseman is the anti-christ who comes with a bow without arrows and on a white horse.  The bow speaks of conquering peacefully. The bow was used for distance warfare and speaks of the far reaching power of this new world ruler. He rides on a white horse because he has always tried to appear like God.  Satan's original sin was to exalt himself as God.  His covenant with Israel is short lived as the second horseman is on a red horse ...war and bloodshed.  Following war is always famine and that is the third horsemen on a black horse.  A scale in his hand speaks of rationing and shortage.  A whole days labor for just a loaf of bread.  But the death rider cannot touch the oil and the wine.  Oil is anointing and wine is communion.  The tribulation church will practice daily communion as a covering of protection over their household...just as Israel covered the doorpost with blood when the death angel passed over in Egypt.  The final rider is on a pale (dapher) horse.  This is the color of death from war, famine, pestilence and beasts (small beasts, most likely rats or rodents).  1/4th of mankind will die during this season.  That is almost 2 billion people.  The anti-Christ will be exposed for what he is, a liar and deceiver.  But this will also be a time of men crying out to God.  They see the face of God in the sky of judgment and death and even pray for the rocks to fall on them. They say, "Who can hide from the face of God?" (Rev. 6)  But God will allow this time of despair for the world to see their need of a true deliverer... Jesus Christ the Lion/Lamb of heaven.  The greatest revival is about to break out on earth that has ever been seen.  This will come in Revelation chapter 7!  What part do we play?  The church of Jesus Christ is going to be protected.  Paul said, Sudden destruction would come upon the world.  (IThess. 5:3-4)  But not for the true believer.  Paul also said that we are the children of light and that day will not overtake us as a theif!  How can you prepare yourself and family for this coming season?  Be wise and make sure you have stored provision of food and ability to get water from the atmosphere.  These will be precious commodities.  Some of our bible study group who are builders and in construction are talking about building "Kingdom Communities" with a red barn and granary and self contained organic small farms. The spirit of Joseph will be upon the church for provision just like God used him in Egypt to store up for the 7 years of famine.  I believe the church, the bride of Christ, will have provision that will open the doors of evangelism.  I invite you to subscribe to my youtube channel to keep updated on all future videos on both the book of Revelation and other related prophetic videos.

Behold the Lion, behold the Lamb

John in Revelation saw the throne of God.  In Chapter 4 he saw the different beings around the throne... the 24 elders, who represent the old and new testament saints, the seraphim who represent the attachment God's presence has to the earth in the four creature faces.  Now in Revelation chapter 5 John sees a legal transaction take place.  The Father-God is holding the "Title Deed" to all creation (especially the earth) in this scroll in His right hand.  John begins to weep because no one in heaven, earth or under the earth is "worthy" to take the scroll and claim it.  Many have been "willing" through history to try to take possession of the earth and rule.  Hitler, Napoleon, Alexander the Great, Ceasar's, and other have tried but failed.  Finally Satan offers his best shot.. the anti-christ.  This is his last best hope to finally take over planet earth. He gathers the nations, religions, wealth of the Babylonian system, and releases all demons from the second heavens to earth and releases all the demons out of hell to earth.  He knows if this does not work... he is finished...done... it's over for him.  So he gathers all his power, authority, strength and might to do this.  Looser!  He has to know

How to use the internet for ministry?

I often get saddened when I see how poorly most ministries do to get noticed on the internet.  This fabulous tool is one of the greatest opportunities in our lifetime to take what God has given us and share it with the world.  Why do most ministries, particularly churches, do so badly?  Because they depend on volunteer people in the church to carry this.  Many volunteers continue to make promises to keep things up to date, but often drop the ball.  If communicating our message is the most important thing in our life to reach others, we should pay more attention to this wonderful tool.  I will never stop being convinced that God has raised up the internet for end-time purposes.  Satan, of course, has made his move and brought many undesirable elements online.  But as a ministry leaders, we should take the time to learn as much as we can.  That is why Action Evangelism utilizes, audio and video, blogs, social networks, online radio and television streaming networks 24/7, online distance learning Kingdom Life University, and overall management of our international network of 50 national directors in 19 nations.  All of this has been built off the internet.  I only mention these things to encourage you.  I am not that different than anyone else.  Just committed to keep digging and digging until I find the latest greatest internet tools for getting out "the message" God has given me.  I want to encourage you to do the same.  I will be holding a workshop soon that will help you.
God has graciously given me some good tools that I can share with you.  I want you to watch the below video that I just shot at a pastors meeting I spoke at this last Thursday here in Tampa, Florida.  It shares a few of the secrets on how to get noticed on "google" the gold standard of SEO (search engine optimization).  I will be listing the time, place and sign-up information before long concerning this coming "FREE" workshop.  I want all my ministry friends to learn more on how to see God use this internet tool to help build their ministry.  If you want to check out some of my web and internet sites and see what I am doing, please do so.

Kingdom Health = Happy Life

Pic of Healthy Happy Couple
I hope you let me indulge for these few posts on my more personal vision and life experience.  Posts have, up to this point, been almost entirely on Kingdom Business principles.  But I can't pass by this opportunity to share a personal secret that has given me excellent health.  I just performed a wedding last weekend and at the reception I shared how I was going to have my 71st birthday next month.  Several at the table were amazed that I looked so fit and not near what a 71 year old should look like. One actually guessed my age in the mid 50's.   I don't believe we can fulfill our kingdom destiny if our bodies are weak, sickly, overweight, tired and abused by poor choices. I know some of my good ministry friends and associates have died before their time because of such poor choices.  So I am proceeding to give my secrets of how I maintain my health and energy.  I apologize if this sounds vain and self exulting... it is definitely not intended to do so.  But I will gladly share because I believe it just might help someone fulfill their destiny. First I was raised on a farm for my first 18 years and breathed dirt, had my fingers and hands in the dirt and I believe started my life by absorbing a lot of minerals under my fingernails, into my lungs and body.  Farming is definitely God's best way to begin life.  City folks can duplicate this with gardening.  Second, I work out 30 minutes three times a week with resistance exercise at a local gym.  Resistance exercise has removed all my arthritic aliments because it stretches and lubricates joints.  I make sure my core (stomach) muscles are always in good shape, because that core maintains my spine and all my internal organ alignment.  One of the most powerful aspects of maintaining my good I do not take any prescriptions, is my morning drink.  I cannot emphasize this enough.  It is a company called I don't sell for them or help them market...but I do bring them a lot of business because of my personal testimony. People simply ask me my secret. Their "Superfood" is a organic green drink that has 19 ingredients & the highest rating among health experts.  It tastes terrible!  This powder can make you puck!  So I mix mine each morning with apple juice, 1/2 banana and a cup of blueberries.  Blueberries also have been proven to help maintain a healthy brain.  It looks green, which we are not used to, but absolutely will do several things.  Being totally alkaline it kills all cancer cells.  It absolutely loves my gut!  Having traveled most of my life in evangelism I had developed a good case of constant constipation.  But this has totally solved it. No more, praise God!  It has cleansed my intestinal walls of all fecal materials, and my bowls movements are something to behold.  Don't you love this?  Well, anyway, I told you I would tell you my story.  I have now been on this daily drink for 6 years and my hair continues to thicken, my nails have no white spots and my skin looks young.  Take it for what it is worth.... It is amazing.  It's health from the inside out!  Do I eat perfect...absolutely not.  Yes some sugars, some meat products, etc.  But because I begin my day with this powerful drink it gives me some liberties. I maintain a healthy weight because my body is fully satisfied with every nutrient required for the day.  So now I can eat for a little pleasure...ha!

And most of all, I maintain deep inner peace.  Paul calls it, "The peace that passes understanding and guards our heart and minds in Christ Jesus."  Philippians 4:6.  Since most health problems at my age deal with a healthy heart, mine is kept in perfect peace.  You see, God originally created man, in Genesis, to regenerate both his heart and brain forever.  2011 was my year of learning to "Rest" by living in God's amazing love and grace.  Many heart problems come from condemnation, and Jesus can TOTALLY remove that.  Well, thanks for letting me self-indulge a bit.  Perhaps God can use it to encourage you to better health.  Here's to your health!

Kingdom Radio & TV - A Word In Due Season!

The internet has opened up the ability to reach nations that are not fully open to the gospel and regular radio & TV broadcast.  WATV World Action Radio & TV network, our gospel station, reaches almost as many listeners in China and Russia as we do in the USA.  I am amazed that over 80% of our listeners listen on their mobile unit through our "Apps".  You can down load both the Kingdom Business Radio and Television network "App" and the WATV "App" at google play.  Just search "WATV" and "KBBNETWORK" and install.  Bring the "App" to your front page of your phone or pad and with one just click we will be on the air with you.

God recently led me to turn our KBBN Kingdom Business Builders Network into a 24/7 teaching of the word "through the bible" format.  Today's Kingdom Business Builders absolutely need the wisdom of God to build a business that will be both productive and protected for the future.  People tell me that the power of the Word of God is changing everything.  You will hear the Bible taught chapter by chapter through the new testament.  I agree!  God's word is "quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword"!  Listening to the word of God systematically causes you to began to hear the voice "of the Spirit" and not listen to your mind, your soul or your feelings.  By listening to God's Word you will discover who Jesus Christ is and who you are "in Him".   You will be amazed that the entrance of the Word of God brings "Light".  You will know how to make right decision, right choices.  You will most of all discover how Jesus Christ is fully committed to your prosperity and purpose!

I will never forget the time I was sitting at my desk and a call came from a New York broker that was offering me what he considered a buy of a lifetime in the market.  While he was talking I was praying in the back of my mind for wisdom and direction.  I just finally said, "I will call you back in a few minutes to give you my decision."  I opened my bible to seek for wisdom and this verse was right in front of me.. Proverbs 23:5 "Will you set your eyes on that which is not? For riches certainly make themselves wings; They fly away like an eagle toward heaven."  I called him back and told him my council had given the advice not to take advantage of his buy of a lifetime.  I challenge you to give my radio network a try.. it is a 24/7 streaming broadcast through the bible teaching verse by verse.  It just might give you a word in due season!

Revelation Overcomers

The book of Revelation strongly emphasizes "Overcoming" during the tribulation.  God has promised His church that He would deliver us from this hour of the wrath of Satan coming during this time.  The word "deliver" does not mean "escape" as so many have taught!  Deliver means going through with victory.  The escape theology has ill prepared the Bride of Christ for what is coming. John wrote this powerful verse for the saints that will be on earth during the tribulation.... "They overcame Satan by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony" (Rev. 12:11).  The death angel passed over every home in Egypt that was covered by the blood of the lamb. The plagues were falling all around them, but Israel was not touched! We can apply the blood of Jesus through communion and during this time of great tribulation most will be daily practicing communion and applying the blood of Jesus. Another powerful tool of deliverance is the "word of your testimony".  Declarations are one of the greatest keys of the kingdom ever given to the church of Jesus Christ.  Jesus said He would build his church on just one such declaration that the Apostle Peter gave.  Jesus made a declaration at the end of the book of Matthew 28 when He said, "All power is given to me in heaven and earth.." (verses 18).  The key is, "What are we to declare?"  What is the word that will bring absolute deliverance?  It is the unshakable, confirmed, anointed, inspired "Word of God".  Jesus overcame Satan three times in the desert with a simple..."It is written".  This word will constantly be in our mouth and upon it's confession and declaration every demon from hell will flee as well as Satan himself!  How will we know what word to speak at the right time to be an overcomer?  7 times in Revelation 2 & 3 John writes, "He that has ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying.."  And 7 times it says, "For he that overcomes, I will give..."  The Holy Spirit will give the exact word to speak at the right time if you have ears to hear and you know the word in your heart!  One of the greatest immunizations against Satan's attack is filling your heart and mind with the memorized word of God!  Your tongue will be a weapon like Jesus has as a sharp two-edged sword.  It will come out of your mouth devouring the enemy with anointed, appropriate declarations over your family, your business and your affairs.  Hey church, this is your finest hour of great victory under great attack.  You opportunity to position yourself for kingdom rule in the coming kingdom as a king under the "King of kings" is unsurpassed during this great time of tribulation on the earth.

Ancient of Days

Daniel's vision of the throne helps us understand God's plan for us.... His people.  One of the most important verses in prophecy is Daniel 7:9 "Until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom".  The key question is, when did this happen or is it something that yet has to happen in the future.  Let's look at the context of this verse.  It happened when Jesus sat down on His throne with the Father.  It also happens in the future as, in it's finality, the complete transference of the kingdom.  Just like we have a present kingdom "now" and also in the "future" in it's fullness. It happens when the power of Satan has been broken.  I suggest that this happened at the ascension of Christ as well as continuing into it's fullness at the end of the tribulation period.  Through His death and resurrection, the power of His blood destroyed Satan's power over us.  At that time Jesus released His authority on earth that He had promised the disciples right before He left this earth. "All power is given unto me in heaven and earth...". Matthew 28:18.  Then He told them to go and wait in an upper room until this power was given unto them.  "Ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost has come upon you..." Acts 1:8  It was at this time the kingdom power was given and the kingdom of was established in their hearts.  Paul preached it all through his ministry until his death.  Acts 28:31 talks about Paul "Preaching the kingdom of God and teaching the things which concerned the Lord Jesus Christ with all confidence, no one forbidding him."  Daniel further explains this amazing event later in Daniel 7:26-27 "But the court shall be seated, and they (the saints from verse 25) shall take away his (Satan's) dominion, to consume and destroy it forever.  Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High."  Here is the "Action Plan" of Jesus at the end of this age for for US His bride, the church.
1. First Jesus fulfills all righteousness on earth and says, "It is finished"
2. Jesus ascends and is seated in the court of heaven at the right hand of the Father.
3. He destroyed the power of Satan through the cross and resurrection.
4. Declares that the saints have now possessed His kingdom power on earth in Acts 1:8!
5. Commissions the saints to take possession of the kingdoms of this earth.

As we come to the end of this age, we will receive more revelation as to how to pray, how to declare over the earth and release His kingdom authority.  The great tribulation will be the greatest transition of power and governments as the saints rise and release the judgments "on earth" against the anti-christ, false prophet and Babylonian system. This is what Daniel was referring to "..they (the saints) shall take away his (Satan's) dominion."  It will be a time of magnificent harvest and completing the great commission as well as a time of intense wickedness and evil.  But Jesus clearly wins.  Then at the end of the great tribulation the full transition of all kingdoms shall be given to the saints.

Book of Revelation & Kingdom Business

The book of Revelation is Jesus "Action Plan" to transfer all authority and human governments over to His bride, His church. Following His "Second Coming" the church will rule and reign "on earth" with Him for 1000 years. The book of Revelation is future and describes in great detail how the time of "Great Tribulation" will break the back of the anti-christ, false prophet and the Babylonian system of international finance.  People complicate this powerful book and make it seem too hard to understand. I believe anyone that seeks to understand this book will receive "the revelation".  I believe that the church will be present on earth during this time to release through worship, proclamation and prayer the fulfillment all the seals, trumpets and bowls that Revelation speaks about.  Just as Moses streteched forth his rod of judgment on Egypt, the church will stretch forth powerful prayers and declarations over the earth.  International prayer movements will prevail during the "Great Tribulation" through tremendous times of natural disasters, wars, famines, pestilences, and resistance by evil governments to submit to the ruler ship of Christ. These prayer movements are spoken about in  Rev. 5:8 "And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.".  It is the prayers of the saints all through the book of Revelation that release the judgments on earth and bring forth Jesus "Action Plan".  Just as Moses prayed for the plagues of Egypt to stop, so the church will pray for these judgments to stop and they will.  We will initiate the plagues and stop the plagues under the leadership of the Holy Spirit instructing us how to pray.  Why will the earth feel such judgment during this period?  Because God is cleansing the earth of all that hinders His righteousness and love! What will happen to the true people of God during this time?  God will place a seal of protection around His own. A chosen number in Israel, 144,000 and also all the Gentiles who walk in victory will have this seal of God upon them and Satan's rage will not touch them.  Even though there are martyrs mentioned, it is definitely a sub-theme of Revelation. There will also be "zones of God's glory" on earth and some nations and cities will not be under the judgments felt in the rest of the world. Some judgments are so awesome that 1/3 of the worlds population will die.  Billions will die during this time.  They, like Pharaoh, will harden their hearts and curse God.  But even death will take a holiday in one period of time. Hordes of demons will be released from hell and the demonic forces from the second heavens will be confined to earth along with Satan.  Satan only desires to murder and destroy even his own. So His wrath will be fully revealed.  I will be teaching shortly on this powerful book of the "Revelation of Jesus Christ".  We will have a much deeper understanding of who Jesus is and His "Action Plan" for the end of this age through this study.  Tune in to Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am live for this live study. LIVE STUDY LINK  Following the completion of the book of Matthew we will go into the book of Revelation.  He that has ears, "Let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the church.. for he that overcomes.."  This is mentioned 7 times.  So join us and be one that "Overcomes".  We must prepare our businesses for this coming time.  I will be sharing an "Action Plan" that I believe will do that during this teaching.

Christian Businessmen in Ministry

All businessmen and women are in full-time ministry.  If you know Christ your first calling is to walk with Him.  The only way to be in part time ministry, is to be a part time Christian. Perhaps we need to redefine ministry.  Ephesians 4:11 does designate the 5-fold ministry gifts of  "apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers and evangelists".  But their ministry is to equip the saints (that's business people) "to do the work of the ministry"! (Ephesians 4:12) We have let religion dictate to us what ministry calling is.  As a child, I always heard about going into full-time ministry which meant being a pastor, evangelist or missionary.  This distinction never seemed right to me.  My uncle's Ray, Harry and my dad were all farmers, but every one of them preached at the German brotherhood meetings on an almost weekly basis. This German brotherhood came out of our family history from settling as farmers along the Russian Vulga river basin during the German depression in the 1800's. When they migrated to America, they brought with them the brotherhood which they called a lay movement. But to me, they seemed just as called as pastor Sauer of our German Congregational Church.  Now I understand that I was right as a child.  It is important that we teach farmers, sales people, lawyers, or any other profession, that they have an anointed calling on their lives. As business people they have the opportunity to fully support their own ministry!  In fact, they are more in the marketplace of opportunity to reach the world than most pastors. We need to teach the business people about their calling, gifts and power to change the world.  Tony Dungy ministered in our church a couple of weeks ago.  His influence for Christ is felt all through the NFL.  His platform is as strong as any pastor of any size church in America.  Thank God for people of influence that take their calling seriously.  But really every business person has the same calling.

Grace by Faith

Grace offers us everything Christ has done for us that is already completed and deposited to our account.  Faith appropriates all that grace provides.  This truth can transform your life!  Stop praying to Christ for things He has already done! We constantly insult His grace!  He has already given you total salvation, total healing, total provision with abundance in every area of your life.  But you must access it through faith.  You have "the faith of God" and have dwelling in your spirit His resident power to heal the sick, raise the dead and bring hope through His word to all around you. But unbelief in your mind and body (feelings) can block everything He has provided by grace!  His salvation "Has appeared to all men", but they have not received it! Just because it's provided, does not mean you receive it. This is where your religious traditions bring unbelief. You have been taught that you must work to get God's attention and deserve His provision. You must fast, pray and beg for God to heal you when He has already done it for you.  This lie has caused more people to live in sickness, poverty, oppression and despair. Understanding grace without appropriating it by faith can kill you. Another lie is, "I don't deserve it, so why would He give it to me?"  Your right, you don't deserve it.. that's why it is totally unmerited favor from God alone. His grace is not dependent on your performance. You may believe that He has already provided your total healing, but your mind (thoughts) and body (feeling sick) can totally keep your faith from releasing it.  So how do you experience your healing, deliverance, salvation and provision?  Through God's word!  "Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God".  Romans 10:1 7 When the word of God becomes more real than your sickness ... you will be healed by faith.   For those that are out of balance with their faith.  Just confessing whatever you want does not mean you have it or will get it.  Here is the key... you can only appropriate by faith what has already been provided by Christ and His finished work....nothing else.  God isn't going to give you the numbers to win the lottery... Christ's blood did not provided for that. Plus it would be illegal.. and God does not break the law! To understand your great provision in Christ, you must go to His word.. read it and believe it.  What are some of the declarations in HIS WORD that are provided for you?

1. Salvation.. "For by grace are you saved through faith and that not of yourselves."  Eph. 2:8   
2. Healing  "He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses."  Matthew 8:16 
3. Deliverance "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed".  John 8:36 
4. The mind of Christ. "But we have the mind of Christ." I Corinthians 2:16 
5. Kingdom Business provision "God is able to make all grace abound, that have all sufficiency in everything, you might have abundance for every good work."  II Corinthians 9:8

 I could go on for pages and show you Christ's provision by grace. But this will be an exciting discovery for YOU! Take God's word and ask Him to show you what you already have by GRACE deposited into your account by the blood of Christ!  Than receive it  & release it by FAITH.

Kingdom Aviation

God continues to expand our vision to take nations for His glory.  We have opened Kingdom Aviation as an arm of Kingdom Life University for our flight school.  Students are already responding and signing up for our aviation program.  We will also provide in addition to the KLU flight program, aircraft sales.  We believe God is taking the marketplace with kingdom businesses that glorify Him.  Bill Peterseim and I went to pick up our first aircraft, a Cessna 177B, in Indianapolis, Indiana that will be used for traveling around the Florida area to minister as well as for pilot advanced training.  We continue to work through the Tampa North flight school for initial training for private pilots license.  We know aviation has played a vital role in world missions. I personally have had two cousins that have flown with JARS and Wycliff mission programs respectively. We also believe raising up commercial aviation pilots that have a solid biblical education along with their pilot training will help us provide mission oriented business people that can travel free to mission fields and help us expand our vision to the nations.  I have also owned 5 aircraft over my lifetime of ministry of almost 50 years.   To find out more about KINGDOM AVIATION, just go to our web site.  To God be the glory for the things He has done.  The donations for the aircraft came through our Christmas mailing and requests to help us launch our KLU flight program.

Simplicity of Christ & Kingdom Businesses

As kingdom business people we are constantly looking for information to increase our capacity and ability to gain influence and wealth....we trip over Christ.  We look to the principles of the world that seem to be working for other worldly business people and try to incorporated them into our business.  Seeking intimacy with Christ seems to simple. Many principles "from this world system" have immediate results, but will fail in the long term.  God wants us to take our businesses and business skills into the "New World" He will create after He returns and restores all things. I firmly believe God is preparing you to reign with him and has promised this over and over again in His word.  This recreated, renewed earth is going to be our dwelling place, as well as the new Jerusalem extending over the earth, for eternity and your business skills are going to be needed to build nations and cities to our God.  Remember, "The heavens are the heavens of the Lord, but the earth has He made for the sons of men".  You are going to relate to this earth for eternity.  To be effective as a "King and Priest" unto your God, you need to learn the principles of His kingdom NOW!  These are the only ones that you will take into eternity...all else will fail.  In fact, Revelation 18 says ALL the merchants of the earth will weep because Babylon (the world system) will collapse in one day!  If you have ears to hear, please catch these words "He (Christ) is before all things and by Him all things consist".  Also, "In Christ are hidden all treasures of wisdom and knowledge".  ALL THINGS ARE COMING BACK TO CHRIST IN THE END! Seeking intimacy with Christ positions you to:  1) Hear His voice so you know what to do both in this age and that to come.  2) Know His plan...this earth is just a training grounds for eternal rule with Him. "The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof" says His word.  3) Demonstrate His kingdom both NOW and in the age to come.  Yes, Jesus shall reign and we shall reign with Him!  Please listen to my teaching on this in the below video.  It goes much deeper into these truths.

America's reformaton and restoration

One of the most compelling moments in Mel Gibson's "Passion of the Christ" was when Jesus falls under the weight of the cross in the arched hallway leading to Calvary. His mother runs to assist him and the scene of His childhood reflects back to the time when Jesus was a child and His mother rescued him after a fall and held Him in her arms. This tender moment goes back to Christ with blood streaming down His face and the crown of thorns buried deeply into his brow. Jesus looks through His suffering into Mary's face and says, "Mother, I make all things new". This is the essence of earth's restoration and reformation. The power of the blood of Jesus bringing deliverance and healing to a broken world. Jesus Christ is the fullness of the Godhead bodily. He brought to earth the power, as a man, to suffer for every sin and sickness and bring complete payment for our condition. When He said, "It is finished" He declared liberation for our lost souls bound by anything that has come against us. He satisfied the holy and righteous demands of the law. His suffering provided payment for every disease and "By His stripes I am healed". He buries our sins in the depths of the sea and He and the Father remember them no more! This single act in history releases the full potential of earth's renewal, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Through His resurrection and ascension He SAT DOWN at the right hand of the Father. This place of powerful authority now gives Him the right to liberate earth's curse through His glorious bride empowered by His Spirit. In essence, the earth is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God... that's us! We His bride carry His authority on earth and we are empowered to transfer heaven's authority to earth. Casting out demons, praying for the sick, raising the dead and bringing people into saving knowledge of Christ is our privilege. How does this affect kingdom business today? Walking in your own personal freedom brings freedom to everyone around you. Your liberation spirit transfers to others and they began to experience what you have by the same faith. You lead them to Christ. You demonstrate how it works. They watch you experience the work of His grace in your life and they are changed by the same Spirit of Christ.

Spirit, Soul & Body

This is one of the most profound spiritual truths you will ever read.  It is the key to understanding spiritual growth, your standing in Christ, and how to live victoriously.  The lack of understanding the spirit, soul and body has brought defeat and discouragement to most Christians. The ONLY THING THAT GET'S SAVED AND PERFECTED at salvation is your spirit.  Your soul, which is your emotions, mind, will, imagination and conscience, and your body, which are your 5 senses only becomes SANCTIFIED through your walking in the SPIRIT after you are saved.  You are only made a new creation in your spirit! Jesus said, "That which is born of the Spirit is spirit, and that which is born of the flesh is flesh." in John chapter 3. The flesh and body are still the same as they were before you found Christ.  That is why your soul and body still have the same issues after you are saved. If you smoked and did drugs before salvation, your body will still crave them until the power of deliverance comes through the Spirit in your spirit by the blood and name of Christ.  Paul said, "They that walk in the Spirit will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh".  He never said your flesh would stop desiring the same old things. But now that Christ dwells in your spirit by faith, you have the potential to overcome all things!  The key is learning to "walk in the Spirit".  For me, praying in the Spirit daily really helps tune me in to the Holy Spirit's voice.  (that is praying in tongues as well as with understanding like Paul the apostle).  Reading the word of God tunes me into the Spirit, because the Holy Spirit searches the deep things of God and reveals them to my spirit through the Word of God!  Fellowshipping with others who "walk in the Spirit" and talking about spiritual things helps me tune into the Holy Spirit's voice.  Paul also said, "I die daily".  What does that mean.  Paul learned to "Recon himself crucified with Christ, buried with Christ, risen with Christ, seated with Christ and now reigning with Christ" by the power of the Holy Spirit! (please go to my teaching on the book of Romans chapters 5-7)  By walking in the Spirit, you diminish the effect that your soul and body have on you.  They become obedient to the voice of God and eventually every "thought is brought into captivity to Christ", as Paul said.

New Kingdom Business Models

We are seeing a season of economic false security. Stock market is surging again, and economic growth seems on the horizon. My wife Mariana and I just went to the movie "The Miracle" about the Tsunami in the Indian Ocean in 2004. Christmas was being celebrated by families from all over the world in one of the most beautiful places. Little did they know their lives would be forever changed within hours. One wave carried death to 250,000. People who were on the upper floors of beach hotels survived and some took amazing pictures and videos. The coming economic survival will not strike us by surprise. At the bottom of the ocean of finance we can already see the earth tremble. America has borrowed beyond our ability to repay. Europe is financially struggling to survive in many countries. The "Arab Spring" which began in hope has now been largely taken over the radical Muslim brotherhood in Egypt. Many say Egypt sets the pace for the Muslim world. We can continue to play on the ocean of false security or run for higher ground. I don't speak these things to bring fear or negative confessions, but to prepare the Kingdom Business Community of believers for transference of wealth. This will happen in times of great turmoil by those prepared. I feel an urgency in my spirit, by the Holy Spirit. What shall we do? 1. Commit totally to the ruler ship of Christ and His kingdom. He will always show us "things to come" and warn and prepare us. But we must be in a position to "Hear His voice". That means abiding in Christ daily. 2. Get debt free as soon as possible. Exit out of the Babylonian system that will collapse in a day according to Rev. 18:10 "standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon (world economic system), that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’ 3. Establish "Kingdom Communities" that will not only have their needs met, but will be a major provider for much of the world. Such as "Eco cities" & "Kingdom farm communities" built around organic farming, debt free housing, and united effort of supporting one another. 4. Pray. Only prayer can manage the kingdom on earth and allow God to bring forth "His will". He is not willing that any should perish, not only spiritually, but physically, emotionally and mentally. 5. Rest in the Lord. God clearly commands us to be "Anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication let your requests be made know to God" Philippian 4:6 Kingdom son and daughters.. let's not be taken by surprise. God has clearly given us wisdom and warnings to prepare.

Prophetic Word for 2013

I always spend considerable time following Christmas and New Year celebrations to seek the heart of God for the NOW word for the next year.  Looking back I have been pretty on target on what God is saying to the church each year and particularly what He is saying to our ministry.  The word for this year is the "Creative Power of your Words".  If there is one thing we need to examine is how we speak.  Speaking the right declarations and blessings will be critical in molding your effectiveness in the future of your business.  Words carry creative power!  9 times in Genesis chapter 1 is the phrase "And God said"...each time creating the world, the galaxies, the animals, the plant life and finally creating man.  God spoke us into being..."God said, let us make man..".  Us, of course refers to the trinity.  We were created out of words!  God's image in us placed His power to create the same way.  How we speak over our business this year will bring it to pass.  How we speak over our wives will create the kind of relationship we will have.  Speaking blessings over our children can influence the way they see their future.  The "Blessing" of the father was vital to the first son in the Old Testament.  We are ALL FIRST BORN SONS AND DAUGHTERS IN CHRIST in the New Testament!  We don't have to steal the blessing of the second son like Jacob did with Esau.  In Christ we have "all spiritual blessings" we will ever need, but we must discover them and confess them with our mouth and speak them.  Michael W. Smith received a revelation before one of his concerts.  God told him to begin speaking a blessing over his audience at each future concert.  At the end of this first concert he just kept playing the piano and began speaking a blessing of favor and good declarations over the people.  To his amazement almost everyone he could see began crying.  He said later, he began to receive emails and letters from people saying, "We have never had anyone EVER speak a blessing over us and it was so overwhelming we just had to weep for joy!" Michael has since written a book called "A Simple Blessing".  He had had no idea how powerful words could be.  One of the greatest things you can do for you life is to write down declarations and blessings that you will use this year.  At the entrance of 2014 you will look back with absolute amazement how things have lined up with your words!
