14 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. 15 And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. 16 Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. 17 And likewise he who had received two gained two more also. 18 But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money. 19 After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them.

20 “So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’ 21 His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ 22 He also who had received two talents came and said, ‘Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.’ 23 His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

24 “Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’

26 “But his lord answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed. 27 So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. 28 Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.

29 ‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. 30 And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

God is a Businessman

In today's clip;

Luke 19:11-27(NLT) -- God runs His Kingdom like a business. He is a venture capitalist who invests in entrepreneurs.

God is very disappointed when people don't make a profit!

Why does He have such high expectations?

He provides seed money, business classes, increased ability and powerful connections.

Luke 19:11-27(NKJV)

The Parable of the Minas

11 Now as they heard these things, He spoke another parable, because He was near Jerusalem and because they thought the kingdom of God would appear immediately. 12 Therefore He said: “A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and to return. 13 So he called ten of his servants, delivered to them ten minas,[a] and said to them, ‘Do business till I come.’ 14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We will not have this man to reign over us.’

15 “And so it was that when he returned, having received the kingdom, he then commanded these servants, to whom he had given the money, to be called to him, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. 16 Then came the first, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned ten minas.’ 17 And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant; because you were faithful in a very little, have authority over ten cities.’ 18 And the second came, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned five minas.’ 19 Likewise he said to him, ‘You also be over five cities.’

20 “Then another came, saying, ‘Master, here is your mina, which I have kept put away in a handkerchief. 21 For I feared you, because you are an austere man. You collect what you did not deposit, and reap what you did not sow.’ 22 And he said to him, ‘Out of your own mouth I will judge you, you wicked servant. You knew that I was an austere man, collecting what I did not deposit and reaping what I did not sow. 23 Why then did you not put my money in the bank, that at my coming I might have collected it with interest?’

24 “And he said to those who stood by, ‘Take the mina from him, and give it to him who has ten minas.’ 25 (But they said to him, ‘Master, he has ten minas.’) 26 ‘For I say to you, that to everyone who has will be given; and from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. 27 But bring here those enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, and slay them before me.’”

Why Study Kingdom Economics?

The Wealth Distribution

In the United States, wealth is highly concentrated in a relatively few hands. As of 2007, the top 1% of households (the upper class) owned 34.6% of all privately held wealth, and the next 19% (the managerial, professional, and small business stratum) had 50.5%, which means that just 20% of the people owned a remarkable 85%, leaving only 15% of the wealth for the bottom 80% (wage and salary workers). In terms of financial wealth (total net worth minus the value of one's home), the top 1% of households had an even greater share: 42.7%.

Kingdom Economics

Kingdom Economics

Matthew 24:14(KJV) - And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

The end is coming. Preaching the gospel to the entire world is expensive. How are we supposed to pay for this? We have good news. God has a way. It's called Kingdom Economics.

This may be the best message Donnell Duncan has ever delivered. Don't let this revelation pass you by. Get it for yourself and share it with others.

Respect The Anointing

Honor and The Anointing

2 Corinthians 5:16(NLT) - So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now!

He's just a man! He puts on his pants one leg at a time just like the rest of us. What makes him so special? I grew up with her. Now she's talking like she hears from God all the time? I hear from God too. What's the big deal with this anointing thing anyway? We all have the anointing. I don't honor men. I only honor God.

This is Part Five of our series on The Anointing. It's a continuation from Part Four - "What Does God's Voice Sound Like?". Many of us in The Church refer to The Anointing quite often but don't fully understand it. In this blog series we will search the scriptures for some clarity.

Mark 6:1-6(NLT) - Jesus left that part of the country and returned with his disciples to Nazareth, his hometown. The next Sabbath he began teaching in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. They asked, “Where did he get all this wisdom and the power to perform such miracles?” Then they scoffed, “He’s just a carpenter, the son of Mary and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon. And his sisters live right here among us.” They were deeply offended and refused to believe in him. Then Jesus told them, “A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hometown and among his relatives and his own family.” And because of their unbelief, he couldn’t do any miracles among them except to place his hands on a few sick people and heal them. And he was amazed at their unbelief.

Respect The Anointing

Unbelief destroyed the power of The Anointing in the lives of the people to whom Jesus ministered in Mark 6:1-6. The Bible is clear. He could not do any miracles among them except healing a few sick people because of their unbelief. It didn't say He would not. He could not. They were too familiar. They were too disrespectful. They cut off the miracle working power of God in the flesh. So if that happened to Jesus where does that leave the rest of us?

The Anointing flows from the minister to the people being ministered to. If you've been following this series all week you will understand the responsibility of the minister to walk in The Anointing. However, even in the presence of a true anointing, a lack of honor in those receiving the ministry will negate its power.

2 Chronicles 20:20(KJV) - And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

Respect The Anointing

I know it's a struggle to honor those whom God has anointed. Do you want to know why? Because we judge people according to the flesh. We size them up with our eyes and determine whether or not they deserve our respect. 2 Corinthians 5:16 is so clear. Do not evaluate people from a human point of view. You will get it all wrong. Judge by The Spirit.

Hence, if you are going to benefit from The Anointing you have to respect The Anointing. You don't have to get caught up in the person ministering. Put your focus on God. It's not about the person anyway. It's about The Anointing that's on the person as a result of the presence of The Holy Spirit. God will deliver by the power of His Holy Spirit.

Psalm 105:14-15(KJV) - He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

That's all for today. Look out this evening for this weekend's teaching video.

What Does God's Voice Sound Like?

Anointed Words

1 Peter 4:10-11(NLT) - God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.

"When you speak under My Anointing people stop hearing your voice and start hearing Mine!" - God

This is Part Four of our series on The Anointing. It's a continuation from Part Three - "Unmasking The Anointing". Many of us in The Church refer to The Anointing quite often but don't fully understand it. So in this blog series we will search the scriptures for some clarity.

The Bible gives several accounts which describe God's Voice. In Job 37:5 He sounds like thunder. In Revelation 1:10 He sounds like a trumpet. In Revelation 1:15 He sounds like many waters. That's great but what's even better is when you speak under God's Anointing He sounds like you.

John 12:49(NLT) - I don’t speak on my own authority. The Father who sent me has commanded me what to say and how to say it.

Operating in The Anointing

"Say only what God says then sit down." - Nathan

That is some of the best advice I have ever received in my life. It sounds really simple but it's easier said than done. When God starts speaking through you never embellish it with ideas of your own. You will only corrupt it. Just say what He says then sit down.

Jeremiah 1:9(KJV) - Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.

Isaiah 50:4(KJV) - The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.

Let God put His words in your mouth today. Someone in your life really needs to hear from Him.

Unmasking The Anointing

Unmasking The Anointing

2 Timothy 4:3-4(NLT) - For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. They will reject the truth and chase after myths.

The organ is blaring. The crowd is on its feet. People are clapping. People are shouting. Suddenly, one sister can't contain her excitement anymore so she takes off running. That sets the crowd on fire. The atmosphere is electric.

The preacher says,"Let The Church say amen! AMEN! I said, let me hear an amen! AMEN! If you're with me let me hear you say yeah! YEAAAAAH! Say yeah! YEAAAAH!"

His armor bearer shouts, "You better preach!" Discreetly, one of the visitors turns to his wife and says, "Baby, he sure can preach, can't he?" She smiles and whispers in his ear, "Yes dear, but is he anointed?"

Unmasking The Anointing

This is Part Three of our new series on The Anointing. It's a continuation from Part Two - "Wait on The Anointing". Many of us in The Church refer to The Anointing quite often but don't fully understand it. So in this blog series we will search the scriptures for some clarity.

1 John 4:1(NLT) - Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.

The Church is full of all types of interesting characters. Some are genuinely anointed of The Lord while others are not. Also, many times we underestimate people who walk in a powerful anointing and overestimate others who are merely gifted in their particular area of ministry. Because a man can sing, preach, dance or play an instrument does not mean the residue of The Holy Spirit rests upon him. It could just mean that he is naturally gifted. God may have given him the gift and that's about it.

1 Corinthians 12:7-11(KJV) - But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

As we've been saying for the last few days, The Anointing is the result of The Holy Spirit resting upon someone's life. As a result, when you see The Anointing in action, you see The Holy Spirit. So to recognize The Anointing you just need to recognize the presence of The Holy Spirit. That can be interpreted in many ways. On a deeply spiritual level, The Holy Spirit inside of you will recognize The Holy Spirit inside of someone else. Hence, you can discern whether The Holy Spirit is moving through someone or not. However, everyone's not that deep so let's make it really simple.

Unmasking The Anointing

Isaiah 10:27(KJV) - And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.

2 Corinthians 3:17(KJV) - Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

One of the most obvious signs of The Anointing is the liberty that it brings. A natural gift can move you emotionally or even blow your mind but only The Anointing can set you free. It's the residue of The Holy Spirit which destroys yokes that have you bound. It's The Spirit of The Lord who breaks the hold of the enemy on your life. It's The Anointing which delivers you from bondage. It's the "chrism" of God which can set you free and keep you free.

Psalm 16:11(KJV) - Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Nehemiah 8:10(KJV) - Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our LORD: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

Unmasking The Anointing

Another sign of The Anointing is that it strengthens your inner man. In God's presence is the fullness of joy. This is not merely a temporary feeling of natural happiness because you don't need God's presence to be happy. Winning a hundred million dollars in the lottery can make you happy. What you get in God's presence is The Joy of The Lord. This joy strengthens you from deep within. When someone ministers under the power of The Anointing it builds you up from the inside. You might walk into the room worn out and fatigued but when you encounter The Anointing you get the strength to move on.

Luke 24:31-32(NKJV) - Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight. And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?”

John 6:63(NKJV) - It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.

Hebrews 4:12(NKJV) - For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

A third sign of The Anointing is what it does to your heart. When Jesus Christ, The Anointed One, spoke to some men on the road to Emmaus in Luke 24 His words burned in their hearts. Anointed words are Spirit Words. They expose your heart! They have power! If you walk into a place where The Anointing is flowing you're inspired to go deeper in God and if you're in sin you will be convicted.

The Anointing inspires you to be a better Christian by cutting to your heart. When you hear or see someone operate under The Anointing it penetrates your heart. It moves you toward God. Also, there is no way you can be walking in sin and not be convicted by The Holy Spirit. So when you're in His presence expect to feel extremely uncomfortable with your sin. Once you sense what's going on, go ahead and repent because He won't relent. The Anointing leads you to get your life right with The Lord. It pushes you higher in Him.

Unmasking The Anointing

You cannot deny when you're in the presence of The Anointing because you cannot deny when you're in the presence of The Holy Spirit. The Anointing changes you. You cannot walk out the same way you walked in. If you're moved emotionally but you walked in messed up and walked back out messed up you may just have encountered an awesome natural gift. Gifted people can temporarily sway your emotions by an unusual display of skill or a moving performance.

Only The Anointing gives you lasting change. When your burden is taken away and your yoke is destroyed you just encountered The Anointing. When your spirit man is strengthened and you are empowered to move forward in the things of The Lord you just encountered The Anointing. If you're bound, weak, broken and struggling in sin it sets you free, gives you strength, heals you and helps you to walk right. There's no denying it!

Luke 4:17-21(KJV) - And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

The Anointing has been unmasked! We'll continue from here tomorrow.
