the arts expressed is called to help equip this generation in their Christ-centered identity and discovery of their God-given gifts for impacting the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.

*TEACHING and IMPARTATION in 8 KEY AREAS*

*Identity in Christ

There are no orphans in the Kingdom of Heaven – no spiritual orphans nor physical orphans lacking earthly parents. In John 14:18Jesus says, “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” (2 Corinthians 6:18, Ephesians 1:5, Revelations 1:6, 5:10); therefore it is the Father’s heart for there to be NO orphans on Earth (Matthew 6:10).

Every individual must believe and receive a foundational and personal understanding of his/her Heavenly Father’s love, and of the identity and inheritance that Jesus Christ came to earth, died and was resurrected for – what He shed His precious blood for; a revelation of Being His sons and daughters on the earth in the present season, not just in the future (Romans 8:14, 2 Corinthians 6:18, Galatians 3:26, 4:5-6, Ephesians 1:5).

As His sons and daughters, through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, we also receive His identity as kings and priests (Revelation 1:6, 5:10). Our priestly role (by the power of His blood) as worshipers and intercessors, releases, by the power of His Word and by the power of Holy Spirit, our kingly role of manifesting His dominion through us on the earth (Genesis 1:26-28). This Kingdom dominion is to manifest through His sons and daughters in the seven mountains that shape every society: government, economy, education, religion, arts and entertainment, media, and family.

*Hearing the Voice of the Lord

Understanding and responding to the many ways the Lord speaks to His children(John 10:27, Acts 2:17).

Being in an intimate fellowship and continual relationship with the Lord enables us through the power of the shed blood of Christ, the power of His Word, and the power of Holy Spirit to see and hear what He is speaking to our spiritual hearts and minds, empowering us to obediently decree it by faith on the earth (in the natural realm) through worship, prayer, music, art, dance, written or spoken word, and to stand in faith on His word and in His power to manifest as we worship and obey.

*Lifestyle of Worship

A lifestyle of worship is not about worship songs or worship services, but rather it’s about a 24/7 lifestyle of intimate relationship as sons and daughters/kings and priests living in the power of the shed blood of Christ, in the power of His Word and in the power of Holy Spirit (“Christ in us, the hope of glory” Colossians 1:27).

In this place, we live a lifestyle of loving Father God, Jesus our Lord, and Holy Spirit, who express agape love through us to others.

Worship in spirit and in truth is a 24/7 lifestyle (John 4:23-24, James 1:27); every thought, word and action in this revelation becomes an eternal spiritual act of worship.

There are practical spiritual disciplines that will strengthen and encourage an intimate and continual relationship with the Lord.

*Hearing and Seeing The Frequencies of Heaven on Earth

Through the frequencies of His voice, the Lord spoke creation into existence (Genesis 1-2, John 1:1-5).

Man’s ability to hear and see sound and light frequencies in the natural realm is limited. Through the shed blood of Christ we are eternal spiritual beings. We need to practice hearing and seeing with our spiritual eyes and ears in our spiritual minds and hearts in order to more fully express His Kingdom come and His will be done (Isaiah 11:2, Revelations 3; 1, 4:5) on the earth as it is in Heaven. The power of sound, color, and words in the spiritual realm, received and expressed as worshiping sons and daughters, is important to understand: the shed blood of Jesus, the Word, and the power of Holy Spirit contain the power of Heaven to change the spiritual atmosphere in our environments, which then manifests in our natural environments.

*Spontaneous Expression of Creative Arts, Gifts and Talents

God sings over us (Zephaniah 3:17), Jesus sings over us (Hebrews 2:12), and Holy Spirit sings over us (Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16).

The Body of Christ is to position itself (set aside time) for the Lord to sing over His children vocally, instrumentally, and through dance, art, writing and the spoken or sung word.

This requires intimate obedient relationship with the Lord and training/skill on the part of the musician/dancer/artist/writer in order to express it.

Spontaneous worship and psalming (prophetic worship) involves becoming a vessel that the Lord can minister through musically and artistically to accomplish manifesting the Kingdom of Heaven in the earth.

*Training in Playing and Singing Skillfully

In Acts 15:16, James tells us that the Tabernacle of David will be rebuilt. The Tabernacle of David trained and released 24/7 skilled worship and intercession into every area of the nation for the glory of the Lord and for His presence to inhabit His people (2 Chronicles 23:12b, Psalms 33:3).

The Body of Christ should be on the cutting edge of releasing skill, excellence, musicianship and artistry (music, dance, art, writing and spoken or sung word) into the culture; manifesting Kingdom dominion here on the earth into the seven mountains of society.

This requires equipping and training of the creative arts in order to express the life of Christ and to take back the mountain of the arts and entertainment (the creative domains) for the Kingdom of Heaven. This mountain significantly impacts our eternal future since this mountain significantly impacts the youth of the culture.

We are all at different skill and experience levels, but we want to encourage and affirm people to serve to the best of their ability to the glory of the Lord.

*Families in Christ

Father God, Jesus His Son and Holy Spirit are all about family. Man (the first family) was created in their image (Genesis 1:26) to fellowship in this family of perfect love. Loving God and loving others are the two greatest commands of Christ (Mark 12:30-31)“But the greatest of these is love” 1 Corinthians 13:13.

Jesus Christ shed His blood to redeem and secure our adoption as sons and daughters into the family of God (2 Corinthians 6:18, Ephesians 1:5). The Lord desires strong marriages, strong families, and dedication and devotion to parent on purpose. There is Kingdom authority to manifest the Kingdom of Heaven and take dominion on the earth in the marriage covenant relationship, and in the family (our eternal future) by the power of the shed blood of Christ, by the power of His Word and by the power of Holy Spirit.

*No More Orphans

James 1:27 tells us that “pure and lasting religion in the sight of God our Father means that we care for orphans and widows in their troubles, and refuse to let the world corrupt us.” If the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is truly upon us and lives within us (Luke 4:18-19), then His justice and mercy will be released through His Body.

No More Orphans facilitates discovery/equipping/training and releasing creative gifts with skill and excellence; providing fatherless children around the world with funding and access to art/writing/dance supplies and musical instruments and instruction in the visual arts, creative writing, dance and music. Training and equipping creative giftings truly changing the cultural atmosphere for the glory of God, and endowing each child with the means to express and provide for themselves.

No More Orphans desires to sow into ministries that introduce fatherless and orphaned children to their Heavenly Father through Jesus the Son, and through fellowship with the Holy Spirit; the Giver of all good gifts. It also sows into organizations that provide orphans around the world with funds for basic physical needs, including advocating and facilitating adoption.
