Valiant Laborers

“And the Word of the Lord was being spread throughout all the region.” (Acts 13:49)

“Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth and a two-edged sword in their hand.” (Ps. 149:5-6)

We mount our assault on the portals of hell and against us they shall not stand! The valiant of heart are those whose laborers are noted by courage, passion and alignment to the Word of God. These marks are the standard where soldiers emerge and warriors take shape. Indeed, the character of heaven is revealed in no better way than when God’s Saints are clothed in the power of the Holy Spirit and accompanied by angels. The advancement of the Kingdom of God is a violent overthrow of the works of the devil! It requires God’s anointing and the character to follow His heart!

No matter how we define a move of God in our day or in the days of the Early Church… we must not miss the prophetic reality of following God’s heart. One of Luke’s purposes in writing the Book of Acts was to tell the real story of the remarkable growth of God’s Kingdom. Amazing things took place in the years that followed the birth of the Church. An outpouring of the Holy Spirit clothed the Apostles with power to become witnesses in the world (Acts 1:8). Although, persecution and struggle shaped their character, never do we hear the cry of retreat. This was the work of God! Humanity’s greatest discovery was how to be filled with the Holy Spirit… and walk as carriers of the Glory of God!

This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel (or any servant of God):
“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,”

Says the Lord of hosts. (Zech. 4:6)

A Valiant Vision:

To see entire regions waiting, cultures and people groups ready to be reached with the love and power of the Gospel of the Kingdom. Our call, requires a company of valiant laborers with fresh eyes… with a vision to disciple the nations (Mt. 28:18-20). We must be found teaching and building bridges of opportunity for generations to walk in God’s destiny for their lives. Should we not stand willing and ready to risk it all for the purposes of God’s heart? Yet in order to risk it all, it will require a vision of how God sees and what God wants to accomplish.

The Prophet Habakkuk said it this way: “For the Earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” (Hab. 2:14)

God is Speaking!

These are New Days in almost every culture of the world, and the sound of a spiritual trumpet has gone forth. Many with an ear to hear have already begun to assemble. To some its a whisper and to others a shout, yet there is no mistaking its purpose in this season. Its God’s invitation that is being proclaimed on the battle field and in the vineyard. Our Father has a voice that echoes on every high place… causing the nations to give birth. He is calling the weary, the lost and forsaken. His sound summons the alien to come sit at His Throne (Heb. 4:16). And from this motley, misguided lot; He will redeem and restore and revive. This is the day of the harvest, a season of in-gathering as in the time of first fruits. And the valiant rejoice in the pleasure of God. They celebrate with heaven in what is witnessed in their generation, because it was birthed in the Father’s heart long ago! (1 Pe 2:9-10)

Father, Your Valiant Laborers Stand Willing & Ready!

Laborers Stand Ready

“And the Word of the Lord was being spread throughout all the region.” (Acts 13:49)

One of Luke’s purposes in writing the Book of Acts was to tell the real story of the remarkable growth of the Church. He saw the Church standing tall! Amazing things took place in the years that followed the Holy Spirit clothing the Apostles with power. This little band of followers were in the midst of becoming world changers… “witnesses” in the world (Acts 1:8). No matter how we define this move of God in the Early Church, we must not miss the prophetic reality of Kingdom Advancement. And whether we see it or not there is a vacuum longing to be filled by a people who will carry the Light of Truth into dark places. There are regions waiting, cultures and people groups ready to be reached with the love and power of the Gospel of the Kingdom. And our calling is to disciple the nations (Mt. 28:18-20), teaching and building bridges of opportunity for generations to walk in God’s destiny for their lives. Should we not stand ready as a generation of laborers… willing to risk it all for the purposes of God’s heart?

The Prophet Habakkuk said it this way: “For the Earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” (Hab. 2:14)

God’s Invitation:

RevivalHut Ministry is hearing the sound of the harvest breeze blowing. These are New Days on the African landscape and like a spiritual trumpet blast, a sound has gone forth from the heart of God. Many with an ear to hear have already begun to assemble. To some its a whisper and to others a shout, yet there is no mistaking its purpose in this season. Its God’s invitation that is being proclaimed in the vineyard. And the laborers carry a fresh clarity of passion in their steps. The prayer that sets the tone of our commission is simple: “Father release Your Power and Let Your Kingdom Come – Let Your Will be Done, On Earth as it is in Heaven!”

God is Hearing & Responding!

Our Father has a voice that opens the heavens and the Nations! He gathers the people… every tribe, every tongue; to come close and find a merciful Throne (Heb. 4:16). This is a time of grace and great favor… for the laborers are assembling as in the Old Testament days of first fruits. We rejoice in what we are obtaining and witnessing in our generation! (1 Pe 2:9-10) Our greatest days are still ahead! “For greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world!” (1 Jn. 4:4)

The Laborers Stand – Willing & Ready!

Thank you for your faithfulness and we shall be ready to move with you in opening an Apostolic Training Center in this region.

My Response:

  • Hello Apostle Fred;
    Great to hear from you and know of your communication with Pastor Zedekiah. I love where God has placed key people to advance the Kingdom of God. It is a great joy to work with precious like minded brothers who understand the destiny God has for their lives. I agree with you in the fact that God has a rich inheritance established in the Glory Realm for each of us. It becomes our right and privilige to move in faith and embrace the resources He has made available. I speak blessing over you and your family and your ministry in the land of Kenya. May you live in grace and sense the closeness of His promise. We shall see His hand at work in these days.
    We have been very busy with things in Uganda as we now have four new churches planted out of the Apostolic Training Center that was opened this past March 2012. God is moving so fast… just this year we have seen 15 new congregations open in the RevivalHut Ministry network. God continues to raise up leaders and train for advancemnet in the fields. It is His doing as we see Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania bearing fruit to the Glory of God. I am anxious to get back on African soil, but right now we are waiting upon God’s timing and listening for His direction. Please continue to pray for us and use the teachings on our website to encourage spiritual growth. If they are helpful to you – share them freely. www.RevivalHut.com We believe God is up to something big in all of East Africa. Join us in this adventure and we shall bless each other with our communications. It is a New Day!
    Blessings Pastor Ron Bateman

Response email from Apostle Fred:

  • Praise God – Man of God, I hope you are good in the Lord. I am grateful for allowing us to partner with what God has started in the Apostolic Training Centers through you. Pastor, I have discussed the issue with our regional church leaders, and we have agreed to start immediately the program as from next week… every Saturday from 5-7pm, and sunday from 4-6pm Kenya time. As I said, we are giving church hall to be used in this program and God will do something powerful among us. Pastor, we look forward to receive manual as you promised so I can prepare for the classes next week. I hope to hear from you soon. Greet your family and brothers in the Lord.
    Your Ministry Partner,  Apostle Fredrick Ochieno

Swing wide you heavenly gates and prepare the way for a new generation of radical lovers… The fields are ripening and the harvest is truly plentiful!

Ascending the Mountain

“It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be [firmly] established as the highest of the mountains and shall be exalted above the hills, and all nations shall flow to it. And many people shall come and say, Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, that He may teach us His ways and that we may walk in His paths. For out of Zion shall go forth the law and instruction, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem” (Isa 2:2-3 Amp).

The Mountain of the Lord is the highest mountain of all. There is no other mountain, government, or kingdom that compares to the Kingdom of our God in the Earth. All of the nations will flow into it and they will encourage each other and say, “Come! Let us go up to the mountain of the Lord… that He may teach us His ways and that we may walk in His paths!”  God speaks through the Prophet Habakkuk saying, “But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (Hab 2:14 Amp).

Why Take the Risk?

Its the Glory of the Lord that compels us to go. The knowledge of the Glory of the Lord will be seen, be increasing and demonstrated by a generation of Sons and Daughters who have taken the risk. These who know God and have been instructed in His ways. They will live on the Mountain of the Lord and release a supernatural reality of God to the world.

The Invitation is Clear:

The Lord is saying to the Church in this hour, “Come up to the Mountain with Me… and be there. I simply want you to be with Me on the Mountain as a friend. You don’t have to do anything or be anything for Me… just be there with Me.”

It is here that the Lord will reveal all of His treasured secrets and cause us to ride upon the high places with Him. He has favor on those He chooses to have favor and He is looking for friends to pour out His favor and blessing.

Ascending as Friends:

Jesus told His disciples that they were no longer His servants, but His friends (Jn 15:15). Friends He could tell all of His secrets and everything He heard from the Father. He also said, “To you has been entrusted the mystery of the Kingdom of God [that is, the secret counsels of God which are hidden from the ungodly]; but for those outside [of our circle] everything becomes a parable” (Mk 4:11 Amp). We have been given the privilege to know and understand the mysteries of the Kingdom and the secret counsels of the eternal God. He wants to teach us His ways, but it requires our willing responsibility.

Let us therefore come boldly, ascending the Mountain of God, being fully there and learn His ways… so that we are a manifestation of His purposes in the Earth!
