Health Wealth And Relationships

Health, Wealth and Relationships

Life is such a struggle. Whether it be financial problems, health problems, or problems with people, it seems like you are in a continual fight.

If you know the Lord then you have someone that you can turn to. For most of us, our continual prayer is for the Lord to intervene in our lives and bring the blessing that we desire.

If I were to ask you what you would like the Lord to do for you right now, the chances are that what you want will fall into one of these three areas. Continue reading “Health Wealth And Relationships”

Love Beyond All Others

The Love Beyond All Others

Some years back I wrote a poem about the love of God and published it to our daily devotions list.

This poem touched so many people, that I decided to put it into a flash video with pictures and music to illustrate the powerful and emotional effect of the words.

Over time it was forgotten, and with the change of video technology the old original video became obsolete.

Recently I rediscovered it and found a way to upgrade it to a newer MP4 video, which I could offer once again on our websites for people to view and download. Continue reading “Love Beyond All Others”

Big Boys Don’t Cry

Big Boys Don’t Cry

What are some of the main differences between men and women?

I am sure that by now you have figured out most of the differences in physical characteristics. But how would you identify a man from a woman if you could not see the physical differences?

How would you compare masculinity with femininity?

Some of the differences become obvious very early in a child’s life. My first three children were all daughters, and I got to understand how children think and behave. But I did not realize that I had only come to understand how ‘female’ children think and behave. That was until the Lord gave me a son. Then it all changed. Continue reading “Big Boys Don’t Cry”

God Kind of Man

You might be a male by birth but…

It Takes God to Be A Man

Les D, Crause

Hello, I am Les Crause, and I would like to invite you take a journey with me.

Being a man is not a simple matter. If you were an animal, your behavior would have been built into your gender. But you are not an animal.

YOU ARE HUMAN

That means you will need some help to become all God intends for you. And becoming a man, the way He intended is not automatic. The God Kind of Man is created by following clear Biblical Principles. Continue reading “God Kind of Man”

Way of Blessing

The Way of Blessing Principles

Some years ago when we first launched out in full time ministry, the Lord taught me some principles that became the foundation of our spiritual lives. When we began to produce teachings on the spiritual life, these principles were put together into a full teaching which became the flagship of our ministry.

These principles have been proved and lived and they work. And if you apply them to your life, you can be guaranteed that your life will change. And you will break free of curses and bondage into a life of liberty, joy and abundant blessing from the Lord.

Below is a complete summary of all the main principles of the Way of Blessing. Continue reading “Way of Blessing”

Business Calling

Signs of a Business Ministry Orientation

Chapter 1 – Knowing Your Calling

1 Corinthians 1:26 to 28 says,

For you see your calling, brothers, how that not many naturally skilled people, not many influential, not many upper class, [are called]:
But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things that are mighty;
And insignificant things of the world, and things that are despised, God has chosen, [yes], and things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are: 

Everybody has a calling, but most people do not know what that calling is.

Throughout my ministry experience I have found the same thing. Wherever I go, I find people who do not know what their calling is and I find myself telling them what their calling is. Continue reading “Business Calling”

Evangelistic Calling

Chapter 01 – The Good News

Luke 4:18 and 19 says,

The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those that are bruised,
To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

Romans 10:13 to 15 says,

For whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
And how shall they preach, unless they are sent? As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of those that preach the gospel of peace, and bring good news of good things.

The ministry of the evangelist is perhaps one of the best known of the Fivefold Ministry.

I suppose you might think it is unnecessary for us to have a teaching on the signs of the evangelist, because I think most people think that they can spot an evangelist from a mile and identify him immediately. Continue reading “Evangelistic Calling”

Teaching Calling

Signs of the Teaching Calling

Chapter 01 – Bad Presentations

Ephesians 4:11 says,

And He gave some apostles and some prophets and some evangelists and some pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the building up of the Body of Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:28 says,

And God has placed some in the church; firstly apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers; after that miracles and gifts of healings, supports, directives, various different tongues.

In this section I want to look at the signs of the teaching calling. How do we identify a teacher? Continue reading “Teaching Calling”

Pastoral Calling

Signs of the Pastoral Calling

Introduction to the Pastor

This course is the final one God led me to complete amongst the Fivefold Ministries.

I guess that is because today the pastor is considered the most insignificant ministry of the five. But this is not true at all. In fact the pastor is almost as significant as the apostle, except at a lower level.

Let me give you a quick comparison of the two: Continue reading “Pastoral Calling”
