Men, what a powerful time we had at our June Men’s Breakfast! The food, worship, fellowship time, teaching and table discipleship time was all anointed! Thank you for showing up and pressing in!
FORGED IN FAITH!
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Ephesians 6:16 KJV
During our last Men’s Breakfast, we ended our series on the Armor of God by diving into the revelation of the shield of faith. We learned why Ephesians 6:16 states “Above all, taking the shield of faith…”. Faith must be above all! Without faith all the other parts of the armor won’t work. Brother Copeland teaches: “Prayer doesn’t make faith work faith makes prayer work”. Ephesians 6:18 teaches us that prayer is an important part of God’s Armor but in order for our prayers to be effective they must have faith added to them. Let’s also look at Hebrews 4:2:
For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. Hebrews 4:2
In Hebrews 4:2 we see two parts of the armor of God, the Word (Sword of the Spirit) and the Gospel (The Shoes of Peace). This scripture teaches us that without faith (confident assurance) mixed into our hearing of the good news and the Word – it will profit us nothing.
Faith unlocks our ability to receive the revelation of God’s Word including the revelation of each piece of the Armor of God and all the weapons of our warfare.
When we join our faith together – lock shields – AS ONE, we move with amplified revelation power as God’s empowered church and the gates of hell cannot prevail against us!
Our upcoming July 16th Men’s Breakfast promises to be another powerful meeting and time of fellowship as we continue to move into new levels of victory!
Men, our prayer points continue through July. There is so much at stake in these end times that we must be actively standing in faith about right now.
- Truth to return to the pulpits in America
- Abortion to be abolished
- The Word of faith to be taught on every available voice
- America to stand as an evangelistic light for the world
- Israel and its people to be protected as many return home to Israel
These are just to name a few. There are active opportunities to be involved in affecting each one of these areas here at EMIC, our community, schools and voting involvement and through effective faith-filled prayers.
That is why our Men’s Ministry is designed to equip you with biblical weapons of warfare and disciple you and one another in the Word and in meaningful relationships so that we join our faith for victory!
Come and be a part of our Men’s Movement!
For our Ministry Table Leaders: We will be meeting on Thursday July 14th at 7:00PM. Bring your supply and come expecting!
Can’t wait to see you all!
Until then stay strong and courageous!
Love and blessings! Pastor Al
