DONATIONS/BECOMING A MONTHLY PARTNER
Yup, you knew this one was a comin'! Don't need a whole lot of ministry, or preaching, or teaching on this section.
"My sheep KNOW my voice" and if the Lord is leading you to assist this ministry in a financially tangible way-simply obey Him. What you sow into IS what you will "partake of" and , if you want some of the anointing that is on this ministry, then sowing into it is a (scripturally) "sure fire" way to have that happen for you (get and receive of the anointing on this ministry).
One point of note here needs to be said, however. For those of you who you feel the Lord is leading you to help support this ministry on some sort of a regular, monthly basis-then (for you) the Lord has laid the following on my heart, to "sow back into your life, with".
Please note that, as far as I'm concerned (Doug) , the AMOUNT of regular, monthly support is NOT as important, as much as the FAITHFULNESS of "just knowing that regular, faithful stream is 'coming in' ". Therefore, if ALL you "pledge" is only $5/month, for example-as far as this ministry is concerned-YOU ARE A REGULAR MONTHLY PARTNER (and nobody will ever know the exact amount (s) that you sow into this ministry-except the Lord, of course).
Now, for what the Lord has laid on my heart for ANYONE that agrees to become a regular, monthly supporter of this ministry, once again, in ANY size donation > > >
I, personally, have had much "success" with them. I have had visions in the night, personal physical healings, breakthroughs, transfer of anointings, holding off of and stoppages of the works of darkness, ministry of angels, etc. etc., etc-through the ministry of prayer cloths (see Acts 19:11).
No, I will not EVER get into "put this prayer cloth on your pillow for 21 days, write your most urgent needs on this green postcard, then send it (prayer cloth and postcard) back to me-and then I will send it back to you with a bottle of anointing oil . . and . . . " (you know where we're going with that one!).
Nope, you won't ever catch this ministry doing all that kind of crazy stuff. What you WILL get however, is this. You contact us, through our Facebook ministry page, give us your name, your mailing address, your personal prayer needs and concerns and your intentions of how you plan to give into the ministry, then you come on back to this page and give into the ministry using the paypal link just below
and, in return the "Cross and Blood" ministry will send you a decent size ministry prayer cloth (that IS ANOINTED and HAS BEEN PRAYED OVER, FOR MIRACLES AND MIRACULOUS DELIVERANCES) with a handwritten note included of what I feel the Lord has laid on my heart (with appropriate scriptures) for you and your situation (s).
You may use the prayer cloth however you want to. I will be 'standing in faith with you-against the works of darkness' , for your miracle -through the prayer cloth that you will receive through the mail.
[The devil absolutely HATES people who get up and DO SOMETHING with their faith. I can feel him"squirming" (so to speak) as I write this! We're about to break some bondages! ]
We're NOT "kidding around" with this one. We 'need' prayer. We want prayer. Nothing for the Kingdom is ever really accomplished without it.
HOWEVER, we have "been around the bend a few" times -in this arena-and (as we always try and do) we don't want to 'beat around the bush' where prayer and this ministry is concerned. -As leader of the ministry, I do PRAY for the ministry AND for anyone that supports the ministry-in any way. -The type of ministry that we do here at "Cross and Blood" is (like it or not) kind of a "cutting edge" ministry-if you will. As such, our outreaches (although they have included, at times, some of the following) are TYPICALLY NOT your average "church potluck" or "get together INSIDE four walls".
We have and do go out right into the heart of the community where we are at-and we evangelize. We have done forms of all kinds of straight out, what a lot of folks would call "bold", evangelism.
So what does that have to do with prayer-and praying for this ministry?
Simply this, the devil doesn't really fight 'church potlucks' all that much. Preach the WORD inside a church building? He doesn't like it but as long as -after hearing the WORD-you keep everything INSIDE the four walls where you just heard it, he won't actively harass you any more than he does anybody else. Or, if you have a community car wash he won't bother you all that much, either.
However, regular, active, in front of "sinners" on the street-"Are you saved?" evangelism? He will and does FIGHT THAT
So, considering PRAYING for this ministry? Yes, sure we'll take all the folks rowing oars that the Lord will send our way. Please understand what you are helping to promote, however, and don't just come at praying for this ministry in any sort of a 'casual, when you get around to it' kind of a way. When the Lord was in front of something DEAD (John 11:1) He did NOT casually throw out a quick little prayer. He moaned on the way to the grave, He cried while at the grave-and (when in front of the tomb) He did NOT pray a quiet, little "Father, bless Lazarus" prayer. Scripture records that -to bust through "bigger situations"-the Lord SHOUTED at 'that which was dead".
We need, want, desire and ask for THAT KIND OF PRAYER. Please!
Last, on the topic of prayer for this ministry, not only for our sake-but for those reading this as well-we also ask that you consider the following, very seriously.
If you feel a tug to help pray for this ministry, please also consider becoming a monthly financial partner, as well. The reason for that is this.
Say, for example, you were at a football game, someone bought your ticket, you really did not know anything about any of the teams, the area, the players-or anything like that. You simply were given some tickets and 'Wham' , there you were-at a football game.
Now, take the same scenario-and now-instead of having the tickets given to you, you actually forked over the dollars to get the tickets yourself. Also, to get to the game even-you paid for the gas in the tank AND one of YOUR sons is in the game. Also this son of yours that is in the game?-you helped pay for the football jersey, the cleats and the accessories that he's using on the field.
Which of the two situations above is going to find you A WHOLE lot more involved in-emotionally pulling, hollering for, rooting for-and "all into" ?
Obviously, the one where you had some 'stake' in the game.
You want to pray for us? Please consider becoming a monthly partner (as well) AT THE SAME TIME. The monthly dollar amount is not as important (that's between you and the Lord) as much as "all concerned " knowing that YOU have some 'stake in the game'.
Jesus took the time, noticed AND pointed out when a little widow woman put in "just two mites into the treasury"-and He did not think that was a 'small amount', at all. Any financial support of this ministry, no matter the size, WE WON'T COUNT AS INSIGNIFICANT-EITHER (Mark 12:42)
GETTING US AT CHURCHES TO MINISTER:
Now having said what we just said, let us clarify-although we will and do go out in the community ("get out from behind the four walls") it is not to say that we won't (we have) gone into churches and held services, preached at/for revivals, etc.
Therefore, another way to help this ministry? If you're a minister yourself and you want, need, a "boost", a prophetic push, or something of that nature to help your ministry-contact us through our Facebook ministry page and we'll talk.
Or, if you're not currently in leadership of a local body, then simply talk up and "turn on" the leadership of the churches or fellowships that you attend - to our ministry and ministry outreaches (this ministry website itself or some of the videos [you can see the videos on our "getreadynow" blog] can/have worked well in this regard).
Bottom line? If you are interested in having us come and minister at your church or fellowship, contact us through the ministry page we have on Facebook and we will contact you back with what the Lord says about the situation-'"Yes", "No", "Not at this time", "How about this"-"O.K., here are the details we need to work out..."
Last in this catagory. We are an evangelistic, prophetic , "fiery" "get the job done" kind of ministry.
If you want help starting a "soup kitchen" in your community, we are NOT the ministry you're looking for.
If however, you want someone to come in and A) Preach the 'current' Word of the Lord, to any portion of your congregation and B) minister prophetically to members of your congregation (whether they 'want it-or not'!) then we might be the ministry that the Lord is going to use to help you get that done!
Revival IS coming to the churches here in America- to the ones open, hungry and praying it in.
