Why, a Ministerngi to the Lord Series?
On March 28, 2020 April 1, 2020 God the Father woke me up and told me: "Teach my people how to minister to me, ministry is for me, he said. They HAVE TO CHANGE the way that they minister."

Who & What are ministers and ministries?
love the fact that God use the word ministers, and not the five-fold. A minister is simply a born-again believer who serves and attends to the needs of God in the Kingdom of God, this includes laymen, laywomen, as well as five-fold leaders. Ministry is what God uses to get his needs attended to (e.g. our life). Note: Our first ministry is our relationship with Jesus Christ, our second is our relationship with our spouse if we are married, and our third is our relationship with our children if we have any. There is no other ministry outside of that. However, everything flows from those ministries. Some of us minister to the Lord as kings and others as priest. In Revelation 1:6, John the Apostle tells us that Jesus has made us kings and priests unto God the Father for His glory and for his dominion. Those who minister to the Lord as kings minister to the Lord outside of the church building [1 Corinthians 4:8], and those who minister to the Lord inside of the church building are priest.
Apostolic Warning!
I want to start off by saying that I do not stand in the office of a pastor, although I can. Since pastors are spiritual counselors, counseling the body of Christ how to rule over their soul, pastors have a nurturing and compassionate heart, more than I would say any other gift to the church, and maybe in comparison to apostles. The reason that I am mentioning this is because typically in America we often look at everyone as being pastors, especially women. What I don't want to happen is, I don't want pride to get you to block out what I am saying as this series is very important to the Lord, solely because I am a woman, African American, young, and an apostle who has been born-again for less than two years. Please get over yourself, as I had to many times get over myself. As an apostle, I have been commissioned by God to teach with authority. Teaching with authority, doesn't always make people feel good, but I guarantee it will set them free from the demons controlling and or influencing those feelings (their soul).

Sometimes good-hearted believers teach what they had not been authorized teach because they are copying others, instead of listening to God on what he wants them to teach in their own ministry. I am not saying that we need authorization from man to teach anything, but we need it from God. Please do not ever compare yourself with me, nor your ministry with mine. No one should ever teach, what I am teaching just because I am teaching it, if the Lord hadn't told them to, especially those who stand in the office of a teacher because you will be judged more strictly [James 3:1]. It is the Holy Spirit who gives us revelation of the word of God, I am not your God. The same with the office of a prophet, no one should prophecy more than what is given to them. It is the Holy Spirit who gives us revelation on prophecy, I am not your God. If you are teaching or preaching something because someone else is teaching it/preaching it, whether it is because you want to get views, it is because you want to be the first person to get it out, or it is because you're led by man, instead of being led by the Holy Spirit, let me tell you that you have your reward, don't be surprised when you get to heaven and find out that you're bankrupt [Matthew 5-7]. Let me ask you a very important question. How do you know what your congregation need to hear, if you are not being led by the Holy Spirit?  Learn how to be led by the Holy Spirit, rather than doing things because other ministers are. If you are offended by this, then this message is especially for you, continue reading!

"For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ has not accomplished through me, in word and deed [action], to make the Gentiles obedient— in mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God."-Romans 15:18-19

“Therefore,” declares the Lord, “I am against the prophets who steal from one another words supposedly from me." - Jeremiah 23:30

Why am I emphasizing this point?
I am teaching you a valuable lesson and it is as follows: When God tells someone to teach something or a prophet to prophesy a word, it's because he knows where that person is in love, faith and obedience. Love, faith and obedience is Godly character, a greater increase in these areas, lead to greater authority in the Kingdom of God. A ministers love, faith and obedience has to match God's authorization, and this has nothing to do with how long one as been a born-again believer. In other words God will never give some pastors, some evangelist, some prophets, some teachers, some layman an laywomen sprouted revelation because they haven't grown in obedience, love, and faith. Why has God trusted me with revelation? It because those who have given a trust must prove faithful [1 Corinthians 4:2]. What happened when the Apostle Paul was given revelation? In 2 Corinthians 12 Paul tells us that in order to prevent him from being arrogant and prideful, he was given a thorn in the flesh. A lot of you want to be given teaching, prophetic, apostolic, evangelistic, revelation by God, without God's discipline. Note: Godly discipline is different than worldly discipline. Respectfully, if you do not accept Godly discipline you are the least likely to be a steward of God's sprouted revelation. To ease your conscious let me clarify that I am not being territorial at all. Please utilize whatever resource I have on www.ANewJourneyWithChristChurch.com, as long as you do not charge folks for the information that you received from ANJWC Church. From since day one I have shared my teachings, cartoons, biblical confessions, and prophecies, etc.. on ANJWC Church website for free. To learn more about territory and authority, watch the following teaching:

The Foundation of the Gospel
Originally I had a teaching already prepared in which I wanted to discuss the basics of ministry and also deception but I believe the Holy Spirit led me away from teaching that particular teaching for the first teaching to this series because the body of Christ has to understand the foundation [Hebrews 5:12-14Hebrews 6:1].

For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. - Hebrews 5:12-14

According to the Apostle Paul, the foundation of the gospel are as follow:
Paul tells us that when we understand this, we can go onto to perfection in Christ. There are many believers who believe that once a believer is saved [born-again], that there is nothing they [the believer] can do [an action], not to inherit the Kingdom of God. The church has spent the last 10 years learning how much God loves them, but not loving God and their neighbors. A lot of us, confuse God's unconditional love with God being pleased with us, so much so that we reject God's discipline so that we can live in sin. For those, who are legalistic, please click here to watch a video about legalism vs relationship. God doesn't discipline us because he is giving us what our sins deserve. In his great mercy he disciplines us because he loves us and he doesn't want us to live in our sins and die in them. What pleases God is a gradual growth in love for God first and then our neighbor, faith in Jesus (the word of God), and obedience to the truth which is the word of God and the Holy Spirit. I believe that once saved always saved is one of the biggest lies that has infiltrated the church, and it's because people hate Godly discipline and thus want to live in their sins. Listen to the words of the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 11:31-32, and examine your heart.

"Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent."- Revelation 3:19

"My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in." -Proverbs 3:11-12 

As a an Apostle [I have saved this before when I was a pastor, a teacher, and a prophet], let me go on record and say that if you live in your sin it's because you have chosen not to love God with all of your heart, and soul, and you've chosen not to love your neighbor as you love yourself, and because of that decision, you will die in your sins, and go to hell, if you do not examine your heart and repent. Notice, I didn't say a that a born-again believer can have their salvation taken away from them by God, nor did I say they can lose their salvation if they don't follow the Law of Moses, as we are not under the Law of Moses. However, a born again believer can choose to reject the gift of righteousness that comes by grace through faith, and after a born-again believer lives in their sin for an extended period of time they will become so hardened to the truth (the word and the Spirit), that they will eventually commit the impardonable sin unpardonable sin read Hebrews 6:2-10. We will discuss this in greater details, shortly.

Note: I noticed that I kept saying impardonable, instead of unpardonable in this teaching. Yes, impardonable is a word but it is different from unparadonable. The sin in the word of God is not impardonable but unpardonable, it's important for me to clarify this.
















April 29 2020: The Holy Spirit corrected me on two things that I did when recording this teaching, and I had to repent. Firstly, I did a lot of justifying in this teaching, which caused my motives to be wrong. Secondly, He told me that I was boastful (excessive pride). I apologized to God, and I also apologize to you.
