LESSON Month 01-Day 22
This end times discipleship program is uniquely designed to make disciples for Christ using the Word and a simple process of multiplication while increasing your circle of friends and having fun.
Keep in mind that we are entering in to the last days and there is a desperate need for prepared kingdom workers who understand the times in which we live!
Weekly memory Scripture: John 3:3
Today’s Scripture: Matthew 15:21-39. Please Underline verses that will help you make 12 end times disciples for Jesus.
Identify, in a way you can come back to for review, what scripture from today’s reading that will help me make 12 end times disciples for Jesus. You may want to highlight the scripture in your bible or you may want to write it out – however you can best come back for reminder and review.
Disciple: In our scripture reading today, Jesus again heals long distance because of a mother’s faith and persistence (verses 21-28).
Servant: And Jesus again fed the multitudes by multiplying food in verses 32-38.
D: This time it was 4,000 hungry men plus women and children that were fed with 7 loaves and a few small fish.
S: And there were 7 baskets of leftovers.
D: My 12 will be hungry for spiritual food, won’t they.
S: Yes, feed them the Word of God. It is the foundation for this 12 for Jesus training.
D: Is there anything else you want to tell me before I get baptized with the Holy Spirit?
S: Yes. Rees Howells was a mighty man of God who was born in Wales in about 1870.
D: What does that have to do with the Holy Spirit?
S: Lot’s. The biography about him, called Intercessor, sheds light on dying to self. The Holy Spirit appeared to Rees Howells and said, “Just as Jesus needed a physical body to work through on earth, so do I. You have asked Me to infill you but there’s not room for both of us. Either your will or God’s will shall be done through your body.”
D: That’s very interesting. What else?
S: It became obvious that Rees Howells had to die to himself so God’s will could be accomplished through his vacated body. After a struggle, Rees Howells chose to die to himself and turned his vacated body over to the Holy Spirit.
D: What happened?
S: Remarkably, what the Holy Spirit accomplished through that yielded vessel had a direct impact on the outcome of World War II.
D: Really? This is beginning to make sense to me. Anything else?
S: Yes, 1 Corinthians 3:16 (NKJ) says, “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” and 6:19 adds, “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit which are God’s.”
D: This baptism of the Holy Spirit is important, isn’t it?
S: Yes, in my opinion the Holy Spirit is the least utilized resource on planet earth.
D: Let’s ask the Holy Spirit to tell people about our miracle-working God, Jesus Christ.
S: They’ll love becoming disciples of the King of kings.
