  10 Ingredients For Miracles

Often I'm asked what is the key for healing and miracles. Usually I will say 'the love of God". But looking over the healing ministry the Lord has given me I see a number of things I've learned from others that have been very helpful. Here are ten ingredients for miracles.

  The Kingdom and The Car Lot - A Church Parody

by Terry Somerville

Dear Friends and fellow vehicles;
When I first came to "Rejoice Evermore" Car Lot, I was a brand new model.
All the other cars thought I was wonderful. They wanted me to get involved
with everything at the Car Lot, even though I had hardly any miles at all.
It was great! Each week we would gather together to hear manager Good-Brand
speak about being cars, or he would tell us the great designers' plans for
the Car Lot. He is a very wise car, and has many repair manuals and road
maps in his office. I like him.

Kingdom Systems

Every kingdom is a system of  principalities, authority, power and dominion.

by Terry Somerville

A Kingdom is a System
Every kingdom is a system, not a "thing".  It is a system with various interworking non physical parts.    The "thing" we see is really the effect of kingdoms on  people, cities and nations, but not the kingdom itself. For example, we may see a person called "king", but "king-ness" is something unseen, yet it easily controls large groups of people! Until we understand that kingdoms are systems we will not grasp how kingdoms work,  Principalities, authority, power and dominion are all parts of a kingdom system.  They are meaningless without being together, like a manager without a company.  I will explain them later.

How A Kingdom is established

The power of words and agreement to form Kingdom structures.
By Terry Somerville


Mat 13:24-30  "Another parable He set before them, saying: "The kingdom of heaven is like a man sowing good seed in his field. But while the men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went away.  But when the stalk had sprouted and produced fruit, then the tares also appeared.  So the servants of the master of the house approached and said to him, 'Sir, was it not good seed you sowed in your field? From where then does it have tares?'   "He said to them, 'An enemy has done this.' So the servants said to him, 'Do you wish then that we should go and gather them up?'   "But he said, 'No, lest gathering up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them.   Leave both to grow together until the harvest; and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, "First gather together the tares, and bind them into bundles to burn them, but gather together the wheat into my barn."

Characteristics of Kingdoms

Citizenship and membership, oaths and pledges etc.

by Terry Somerville

A few  weeks ago I began a series on  the Kingdom of God and the basics of kingdoms in general.  (Click Here For That Issue) We saw that  kingdoms are not something we observe outwardly, but they are a system made up of  a principality (a ruler), authority ( the right to act), power (the force to act) and dominion (the territory or jurisdiction).  We also looked at how a Kingdom is established by words that carry power. Agreement brings establishment.   Now we will look at some characteristics of all kingdoms.

  24 Biblical Features of The Kingdom Of God

by Terry Somerville

1. The Kingdom Of God is a mystery to the Undiscerning
Mar 4:11  And he said unto them, Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: 12  that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest haply they should turn again, and it should be forgiven them.

2. The Kingdom Of God Is Not Observable, It is Not Flesh and Blood

  Kingdom Ambassadors

Understanding the Kingdom of God is essential for the marketplace.

by Terry Somerville

It's amazing how  the concept of  "marketplace ministry"  is spreading throughout the body of Christ. I started preaching  about 'Kings and priests"  in 1999 and I would receive the strangest response from fellow pastors. It seemed that everyone was frozen in a model that said  "ALL ministry takes place  at the  local church level".  How things have changed.  I was recently teaching at a pastors conference and it seemed everyone wanted their congregations to live all of life as  their ministry.  They know Christians are salted by God into their sphere of influence  in the world. We don't need a  program to touch the marketplace. We ARE the program. The same God who loves the world lives in us and is passionate about bringing His Kingdom  life into a reality through us.
