This new title armorbearer, the Spirit of the Lord has allowed the Body of Christ to use as a help, is a renewed word for us in the 21st century. As you may know by now, the word armorbearer came from the Greek word, Nasa which means, to help or to assist. This title is being used to bring a fresh anointed spirit of servanthood to the Body of Christ...
King David is one of the most famous kings of the Bible. Yet, before he became king he was an armorbearer. In this study, let’s look in on the anointing of David: After King Saul’s continual sin, he was rejected by God as king. The Prophet Samuel is sent to anoint the next king. He goes to Jesse’s house and all the sons are brought before the Prophet Samuel save one...
Has the Lord called you further? In this post I talk about a servant, the armorbearer. The reason I want to talk about this topic is I want to bring balance to your thinking on this matter. The decade or so that we served as armorbearers was pretty much heaven on earth to us. Other than, my wife and I serving to our fullest potential; it was hard work. I’m not saying that in a bad way; but meaning we didn’t play around.
Today I begin by giving a testimony about a customer and the situation that was presented to me and the cry of faith that brought deliverance. As many of you know, I'm a Minister of the Gospel and I have a net mending business. In short, the work that pays the bills.
Christ is the sacrificial Lamb. The prophets and the Old Testament proclaimed it; they foretold and foreshadowed it. We needed this propitiation. We, humanity, needed someone to stand as a substitute for us to have a way back to God. As you may know, we were destined to a devil’s hell without one plea. But God intervened through Christ who shed his blood for us on Calvary.
Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish. When they all had enough to eat, he said to the disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.”
The Lord is my Shepherd: I shall not be in want. The Lord is my overseer, provider, defender, and my guide. He will meet my every need so that I don’t need anything.
When we recieve a "touch from God", there is the excitement of the super natural power of God's presence flowing through you and all around you. It is an awesome experience that makes you want to tell everyone you meet. This is a very good thing. But it's only the first step of Gods plan and His will for you.
Webster defines a shepherd as a sheep herder, a person who tends, feeds or guards flocks of sheep. As a shepherd we are called to lay our life down. Jesus said a seed abideth alone unless it is sown; it must be planted in the ground and then it will bring forth, first the blade then the stem and the fruit of the harvest. As shepherds we lay our lives down. So as we sow our life it will bring forth a great harvest for the kingdom of God.
We invite you to join us in a 2013 resolution! As a Christian believer, we resolve to take advantage of yet another benefit that Christ's death purchased for us. As Pastor Mike Hayes says, "Christ died not only that we might believe but also that we may belong to the family of God." Plug into the power of Christ's congregation and belong. Be sure to read Varn's testimony of beginning the year 2012 in a coma and ending it with a grateful heart and fresh revelation of the power of God's congregation...
