Steve Fatow: How Does an Apostle Differ from an Evangelist?

How Does an Apostle differ from an evangelist? What Is the difference between a disciple and an apostle? These are questions thoughtful Christians are asking. The Scriptures offer helpful answers. Veteran ministers offer insight into understanding not only the obvious, but also some of the nuances of the distinctions of the five-fold ministry offices of apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher.

In this video,Steve Fatow smiles as he explains one of the differences between apostles and evangelists.

What is an Apostle? Which are you? Apostle? Evangelist? Or a helper of one or the other. All ministers need one eye on the lost in order to fulfill the great commission: Go into all the world and make disciples. Revival is at hand. What part in kingdom work are you doing?

3 Ways to Get Healed

Three ways to get healed. I am healed of stage 4 inoperable cancer.
Praise God!
I nearly died twice.
I’ts good to be alive and well!
When I say there are 3 roads to healing, I know by experience what I’m talking about.
It’s best when these 3 ways to get healed converge.
They can work together.


Number One Way to get Healed

In our society it’s the medical or conventional route.
Modern medicine is nearly miraculous.
The medical field is especially astute in 2 areas:
Diagnosis and emergency intervention.
I needed both.
Doctors couldn’t find what was wrong in my body.
Finally, a medical technician discovered (by accident) a cancerous lesion on my lung.
Next came chemotherapy.
I don’t recommend chemotherapy if it can be avoided.
Most oncologists would not treat their own family members or get treated themselves with chemo.
For me, however, I was so far gone I need emergency intervention.
Chemo may have saved my life.


Second Way to get Healed

Don’t miss or dismiss it.
Supernatural intervention.
In other words, through prayer, faith, divine healing or however you describe it.
It’s God’s pleasure to heal people.
He’s doing a lot of supernatural healing these days.
One day I was meditating on a Bible verse (Galatians 3:13).
The presence of God came on me.
How do you explain a mystery?
I can’t.
Yet I know it was Jesus Christ’s presence.
(I’m awed as I describe this.
It’s taking my breath away.)
I knew then and there, I was healed.
The key is to get in God’s presence.
If you listen to the many cancer survivor stories,
note how often they mention God, prayer, or an angel who mysteriously and wonderfully effected change.


The Third Way to get Healed

Natural or alternative methods.
The world is catching on.
Think organic foods.
The grass fed movement.
Think diet, detox, exercise.
I found out chemo could not keep cancer away.
My wife and I researched.
We found  what would keep cancer away.
Now, every day I detox.
I oxygenate my body.
I alkalize.
I eat 4 vegetables every meal
I avoid sugars and sugar substitutes.
I cut out all white flour.
I eat Biblically.
I develop my immune system.
Some people try only one of the 3 ways to get healed.
From cancer, they usually die.
We generally need all 3 ways.
The 3 ways to get healed work synergistically.
What are you doing to stay healthy or get healed?

Journey to authenticity with Sonny Misar

Journey to authenticity with Sonny Misar

Journey to Authenticity? The phrase is trending as a catchword in some ears. What is meant by “Journey to Authenticity?” In this 18 minute video Sonny Misar relates how God develops authenticity in His children. Sonny speaks with gentle authority from an apostolic perspective.

Note the 6 stages on the journey: new life, learner, warrior, brokenness, surrender and finally, yes finally! — authenticity. Sonny explains “Every stage has it’s glory,” but the stage that shatters us is brokenness. Do we have to go through brokenness (“the dark night of the soul”) to achieve true authenticity? “Yes, it’s part of God’s plan,” asserts Misar.

There’s’ much more for anyone genuinely wanting God to use him or her. Journey to Authenticity is available on Amazon. This book offers welcome training for any aspiring minister and give understanding to any Christian who wonders “Why has the bottom dropped out of my life?”

But Journey to Authenticity doesn’t stop there. Misar offers genuine hope in an understandable and intelligent way to honest seekers. People, especially young people, want authentic leaders. This book will help us all get there.

Now more than ever, character matters. If you are concerned about character in leaders, particularly apostolic leaders, click here.

Can Meditation Cure Cancer?

Can Meditation Cure Cancer?

For me, it sure did help! No doubt about it. I did a lot of other things too, but meditation on God and His Word, brought the healing Presence of Jesus Christ into my disease-ridden body. I knew when it happened.

Can meditation cure cancer? Or for that matter, any other disease? According to the vast and increasing amount of science based research from many sources, meditation plays a role in physical, emotional and spiritual health and well-being.

During my experience of healing from stage 4 inoperable cancer, I wrote my story Answer for Cancer:9 Keys. Meditation is one of the keys.

Chicken Evangelism-21

Chicken Evangelism

Chicken Evangelism

Chicken evangelism — share Christ before you “chicken out!”

David works at a local hardware outlet. He has waited on me before and has always shown himself polite and helpful. Currently, I needed someone to help me load 2 sheets of 5 x 8 drywall. David was the first worker I spotted so I asked him to come help.

While loading, I asked David my favorite starter question, “Have you received Jesus Christ into your life?” David was quiet and pensive for a moment.

“Not yet” he replied, “but I’m getting closer.” (I thought I had talked with David earlier about his relationship with the Savior, but I couldn’t remember for sure.) Most likely, God had been preparing him in a variety of ways.

I told David that I had received Christ into my life, that He had forgiven my sins for all eternity, and was really helping me in my life. I also noted that my life didn’t change right away, but Jesus had come inside me and gradually began to change me.

Then I remembered that while a testimony helps people trust in God, it doesn’t save. The gospel alone is God’s power for salvation. So I gave David a brief gospel message: “Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins. He gave His blood for us. Then He rose from the dead as proof that He was God’s Son. Now He’s offering a free gift of salvation which we can accept in child-like faith — just like a child receives a gift from his father.”

“Do you understand what I’m saying?”

“Yes, I do,” responded David both verbally and with an affirmative nod.

“Is there anything stopping you from receiving Jesus into your life right now?” I asked.

“I want to go to church, but I have to work on Sundays,” he returned. “I want to go to Calvary.”

”That’s a good church. I know the pastor there. But you don’t have to go to church to receive Jesus Christ into your life. You can do it right here in the shade at Menards. If you understand what I’m saying and you want to, you can pray right here and ask Jesus into your life. Do you want to receive Him now?”

David nodded affirmatively.

Go ahead and pray. Ask Jesus into your life. Use your own words. When you’re done let me know.”

No one was around, David bowed his head and I could tell he was sincerely praying. We could hear men talking in another part of the building, but no one with us at the moment. David prayed quite a long silent prayer. Actually, a very long prayer. I began to wonder if he had misunderstood me. Finally, he looked up and nodded.

“Did you ask Jesus Christ to come into your life?”

“Yes, I did,” he replied.

“Sometimes we feel differently, sometimes we don’t. The feeling doesn’t matter. The fact that Jesus Christ came into your life is what matters. Jesus said, ‘I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door – as you just did – I will come into him and fellowship with him.”

David smiled and thanked me twice. He then reached out his hand for a handshake. “It’s nice to see you again,” he said as he walked away.

Chicken evangelism works because God has already prepared many people to receive salvation. The fields are actually white for harvest!
