Honor? In Today’s World? A one-of-a-kind book in both subject and perspective! The Practice of Honor is about reformation of honor—it is intended to disrupt your current model of authority! Jesus put it like this, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant” (Matthew 20:25-26). In some realms, honor is something defended to the death. However you have defined and cultivated honor up to now, The Practice of Honor may require a significant paradigm shift in your thinking. Based on the revival culture of the very spiritually successful Bethel Church in Redding, California, this book is also a template to help any leader develop an environment that brings out the very best in people. The Practice of Honor is a recipe for introducing the Spirit of God, and all of His freedom, and how to host and embrace that freedom as a community of believers. Those with power must learn how to empower those around them—or Heaven on the earth will never be realized as God intended.

Keeping your love on. It's a hard thing to do. Sometimes it's the hardest thing to do. But if you want to build healthy relationships with God and others, learning to keep your love on is non-negotiable. Adults and children alike thrive in healthy relationships where it is safe to love and be loved, to know and be known. Yet for many, relationships are anything but safe, loving, or intimate. They are defined by anxiety, manipulation, control, and conflict. The reason is that most people have never been trained to be powerful enough to keep their love on in the face of mistakes, pain, and fear. Keep Your Love On reveals the higher, Jesus-focused standard defined by mature love-love that stays 'on' no matter what. Danny Silk's practical examples and poignant stories will leave you with the power to draw healthy boundaries, communicate in love, and ultimately protect your connections so you can love against all odds. As a result, your relationships will be radically transformed for eternity. When you learn to keep your love on, you become like Jesus.

God is preparing a spiritual tsunami to sweep the nations and reclaim our culture for Christ, says author Jonny Enlow. He describes seven culture-shaping areas of influence over each society—media, government, education, economy, family, religion, and celebration (arts and entertainment)—that are the keys to taking a nation for the kingdom of God. The purpose of this book is to draw the church’s attention to these areas; help each individual determine his or her specific assignment in this mission; and then to offer insight into the nature of the battles involved in this “spiritual tsunami,” as the author calls it. Many Christians do not grasp that God’s favor for us to succeed is already upon us and is part of His end-time strategy to establish Jesus as Ruler of the Nations before His return. Readers will come to understand that this favor is divinely strategic and corresponds to the place of each person’s ministry assignment. Many have a spiritual poverty vision and poor eschatology, two factors that have robbed us of our blessing and caused us to fail to reclaim cultural influences for Christ. The book is laid out to address these two misunderstandings, with the first several chapters specifically aimed at correcting lack of vision and misguided understanding of the end times. Each chapter that follows provides intensive, detailed study of each “mountain” of influence, how it will be taken and by whom, and what resistance will be encountered by individuals assigned to claim this mountain.

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase, "Women in Ministry"? A. Nursery Worker B. Children's leader C. Pastor D. It's complicated If you are like most your answer would be, "It's complicated". Many believers are still confused about the proper place for women in the church. Powerful and Free is a call to address the structural message of inequality.It is not a theological treatise on the biblical case for female leaders (there are many excellent resources for this already). It is not a political program to implement some kind of affirmative action in our leadership teams, because that doesn't work. Rather, it is an appeal to the hearts of men and women to recognize the existence of the glass ceiling for women and to challenge themselves to align more fully with a Kingdom vision for gender-blind leadership in the Body and equal male-female partnership in the home.

Methodist minister and Civil War chaplain Edward McKendree Bounds (1835-1913) considered conversation with God as fundamentally vital to the Christian's life as physical breath. He devoted the last 17 years of his life to intense intercession and to penning some of the most perennially popular works about prayer. This attractive volume features the very best of his beloved writings. "God shapes the world by prayer. Prayers are deathless. The lips that uttered them may be closed in death, the heart that felt them may have ceased to beat, but the prayers live before God, and God's heart is set on them and prayers outlive the lives of those who uttered them; they outlive a generation, outlive an age, outlive a world." --from E.M. Bounds on Prayer Every Christian library needs the classics--the timeless books that have spoken powerfully to generations of believers.

As we dive into the Father s heart we are overwhelmed by His presence, the fullness of joy. From this place we begin to see from His perspective. As we see and understand His world we are compelled to intercede.We are now praying and speaking with fresh insight.We see that we no longer have to pray from a place of defense. Instead we pray offensive prayers from His presence. When we speak our petitions and most important our declarations into the atmosphere, authority and breakthrough come. From the intimate place with our Father everything is birthed.

For years, Danny Silk has been teaching, writing, speaking, and coaching on honor and how to express it in our families, churches, organizations, and communities. And for years, he has received the same feedback and questions around this powerful, challenging, and frequently misunderstood and misapplied concept, such as: · "You say that people of honor must be powerful, but to a lot of people, 'powerful' means dominating and selfish. What does it mean to be powerful?" · "If respecting our freedom and the freedom of others is crucial to practicing honor, what do we do when people cannot handle their freedom?" · "We tried to honorably confront someone, and the person refused to 'clean up his mess.' What do we do now?" · "I really don't like confrontation. Doesn't honor mean we should get along without conflict?" · "If we're all trying to honor one another equally, does that mean there shouldn't be any leaders?" · "Why does 'honor' always seem to turn into 'entitlement'?" The Foundations of Honor Study Guide addresses these questions and more through a comprehensive study of the core values, practices, and cultural effects of honor. Clear biblical teaching and illustrations, along with provoking questions and targeted action points, equip and train readers to examine their own foundations and build a solid foundation of honor in their lives, homes, businesses, churches, and communities. The Foundations of Honor Study Guide is designed to work with the Foundations of Honor Teaching Series as a 10-session course suitable for both individuals and groups.
...a desire fulfilled is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12 How would it feel to have someone not only believe in you and your dreams, but also work alongside you to help those dreams become reality? What would it be like if we lived in a community where everyone was intentionally seeking to encourage and empower on another to discover their purpose and live their dream? We believe this kind of community is possible and it starts with you and me. So, what is your dream and how can we help you live it well? The purpose of Dream Culture is to help you partner with Father God, unlock the dreams and desires of your heart and empower you to make them a reality. Our hope is that this book will be a catalyst and companion to you on your Dream Journey as you rediscover dreams and desires planted in your heart before time began, turn these dreams into simple action steps and then overcome challenges along the way. Each chapter contains simple and relevant teaching, inspirational, real-life stories and practical Dream Activation Exercises. The Dream Activation Exercises at the end of each chapter will show you how to turn your ideas into action steps and help you develop an intentional lifestyle of bringing your dreams to life. Dream Culture Endorsements "Dream Culture: Bringing Dreams to Life is a wonderful tool in our mandate to partner with God for the impossible. This book puts legs on the desire to have fulfilled dreams in our efforts to honor the Lord through every part of our lives. Andy and Janine take the reader on a journey through mind-stretching exercises that build hope while helping to define our purpose. This book not only shows us how to dream; it awakens us to our responsibility to live towards the impossible. Rare is the book that is so intensely practical yet so powerfully supernatural. Dream Culture embodies both beautifully. I look forward to seeing the effect this book will have on the hearts and minds of believers around the world." Pastor Bill Johnson, Author of When Heaven Invades Earth "I am so excited about what Andy and Janine are bringing because it is a set of tools and paradigms to help inspire people in hope, strength and courage toward their dreams. Please enjoy and flourish as you learn and apply Dream Culture to your life and that of your environment." Danny Silk, Author of Culture of Honor "Surveys show that nearly eighty-five percent of Christians live passive, unfulfilled lives. That's about to change! Dream Culture by Andy and Janine is a transformational dream coaching tool to help you release the dream God has placed in your heart. As a dreamer, everything I need is in this book to help me become a greater history-maker and world-changer." Leif Hetland, Founder and President - Global Mission Awareness. Author of Seeing Through Heaven's Eyes Andy and Janine Mason bring a profound workbook and tool that is one part life coach, one part counselor, and a major direction builder in your relationship to your life and destiny. I read the book 3 times the first month I got it and it changed the way I minister to people because of its insight. Anyone who is in transition or in need of greater direction or doesn't have specific ideas of how to pursue dreams should read this book. It will really help you journey through a deliberate process of thinking that is both biblical based and inspirationally triggered. I give this book my highest recommendation for the subject.

You were transformed to transform your world! For too long, Christianity has been defined by a false concept of church. As a result, believers have built walls around their lives, keeping culture at a distance. As Christians have tried to keep culture out of the church, unfortunately, the church has kept itself out of the culture. This was never Jesus’ design for the your life! Before church was established as a place that people “came to,” Jesus instituted it as an army that brought transformation to society, starting with salvation and continuing with seven spheres of influence: Church, family, education, government, media, arts, and commerce. Six revolutionary voices in the modern church deliver Invading Babylon. This essential guide will equip you to: Understand your vital role in shaping society. Release God’s will in your sphere of influence. Become an unstoppable citizen in God’s Kingdom. It’s your time to arise and be a light in a dark world.
