The Principle of Supply

Eph 4:11 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.

14 As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; 15 but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.

 

YOU HAVE A COMPANY OF BELIEVERS THAT GOD HAS ORDAINED YOU TO BE A PART OF FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUPPLY.  (1 Cor 12:12-18)

 

THE WORD SUPPLY MEANS; TO AID OR MINISTER NOURISHEMENT, TO FURNISH OR CONTRIBUTE. 

 

THE SUPPLY IS BOTH NATURAL AND SPIRITUAL

 

Phil 1:19 For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

 

“My house shall be called a house of prayer.”  (Mark 11:17)

 

YOU ONLY EXPERIENCE THE POWER OF GOD TO THE DEGREE YOU ALIGN YOURSELF WITH HIS PURPOSE. 

 

Acts 4:23 “They returned to their own company”

 

24 And when they heard this, they lifted their voices to God with one accord

 

31 “The place where they had gathered was shaken and they were all filled”

 

THE POWER RELEASED IS FAR GREATER THAN ANY POWER WE CAN GENERATE INDIVIDUALLY.

 

31 “They were filled and spoke the word with boldness”

 

YOU NEED A COMPANY YOU CAN RETURN TO AFTER A TOUGH DAY OR WEEK IN THE WORLD.

 

WE TAPP INTO AND MAKE AVAILABLE A SUPPLY OF THE SPIRIT TO OTHERS IN OUR COMPANY THROUGH PRAYER.

 

PRAYER IS TO GO OUTWARD.   

 

Phil 4:19 And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

 

Eph 4:16 from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.

 

IF YOUR TRYING TO DO STUFF OUTSIDE THE FRAMEWORK OF THE CHURCH PEOPLE BECOME OPEN TO DECEPTION.

 

14 As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming;

 

THE LOCAL CHURCH IS YOUR SAFEGUARD AGAINST WEIRDNESS

 

PRAYER IS A FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPLE.
