The Spirit over the last quarter of 2020 has given me INSIGHT into 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 (KJV), so much so that I am sharing the following excerpts from the book that I am writing. It is entitled, hiddenINplainSIGHT; Disseminating the Doctrine of Reconciliation (in the) World. I am dedicating the book to my loving brother Kenneth Eric Strickland, who the Lord transitioned into His presence in 2010.
I extend the blessings of God to you from the Ministry of Reconciliation. This website is design to (Excite, Empower, Equip) and most importantly to Educate Everyone to be Effective Ambassadors For Christ (AFC). God has given us the ministry of reconciliation, Pushing Personal Evangelism (PPE), laboring together with the Spirit of God ministering the word of reconciliation (through use of the International Appeal) in the world. “Be ye reconciled to God” by the obedience of faith BELIEVE, the revealed Gospel of Christ, RECEIVE the gift(s) of God by the regenerative work of the Holy Spirit placing us in Christ.
Lord I invoke your presence in both humility and thanksgiving on this day, my seventieth birthday (three score and ten). I pray for Your continued grace upon me until the end of my tenue here on earth as Your ambassador. Your grace is enough. Even while living with cancer (diagnosed in 2014, currently in remission), you’ve blessed me with a reasonable amount of health. Lord I don’t ask you for fame. I don’t ask for riches because you have more than blessed me, that I might be able to bless family and others. Lord, if I ever need anything you would provide most of the time before I ask (Ephesians 3:20-21), but this one thing I will ask of thee…
- Now also when I am old and greyheaded [I have a few grey hairs], O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come. Psalms 71:18
I’ve come this far by the grace of God alone, serving the body of Christ diligently under a number of pastors in their assigned ministries. I am humbled and thankful for all the great men of God, who taught me and allowed me the freedom to exercise the gift of teaching in their ministries. However, now is the time that I publicly answer the call and commission of God, ordained unto good works that I should lead even as I am led of the Spirit of God in His given Ministry of Reconciliation in the world. “I formally accept” before God even as I have been accepted; reconciled to God over forty-two plus years ago (Lic Min 2003). In particularly this day marking the birth of the ministry that God has given me under the anointing and abiding Spirit of Christ.” May this ministry serve as a legacy to inspire others to personally accept the God given ministry of reconciliation.
