WHAT IS HOLY CLUBS FIRM FOUNDATIONS? (3min.29sec.)
HOLY CLUBS MISSION (PG. 4 OF FIRM FOUNDATIONS): WE BELIEVE YOU ARE an ordinary person who is called to do extraordinary things, and we want to help you get there. Our Mission is to give you the necessary tools to take charge of your personal spiritual journey and grow into the extraordinary person you’re called to be.
Think of us as the friend that walks by your side, helping you to revive your heart, to overcome, and to reach your goals. How many times have you tried to “reset” your walk with God, but just couldn’t seem to gain traction? How many times have to go to a conference, or an amazing church service, and thought, “Today is the day I’m gonna get my life together”?
Maybe you didn’t know what to do next. We’ve got the plan for you. Our 24 FOUNDATIONS are simple and easy to follow. Our practical sections will show you how easy it is to hear the voice of God. Our proven techniques will give you the necessary tools to implement what you are learning, unlocking your heart to follow after God.
We challenge you to do this for yourself. What if this is the tool that God uses to equip you to get over the obstacles, to set your heart before the Lord, to hear His voice, and jump into the race He has set before you? You are called to walk holy today, and we want to help get you there.
Let’s get started today because you are an….
ORDINARY PERSON CALLED TO DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS.
RESULTS OF FIRM FOUNDATIONS (PG. 5 OF FIRM FOUNDATIONS):
The information and assignments in this book are designed to help you: hear God's voice, grow your prayer life, open your heart to God's love, revive your heart, and overcome daily struggles, along with developing creative writing skills.
OUR STORY (PG. 7 OF FIRM FOUNDATIONS):
Why would I take time to write a Holy Clubs manual called “Firm Foundations” to lead you on the journey to #happyholiness? Well, it all started with a dream.
Years ago, I had a dream that I was a captain on a college track team. We were competing against other teams in the last meet of the year—the championship. After I finished my race, I was watching my team, but they were losing every single race and we were down 35-0. I knew that in tomorrow's news our team’s loss would go up and down the east coast and all the others would know we were a weak team. My coach seriously asked me, “What are you going to do to encourage the team?” I looked at my team, which was still running, and I got ready to fervently yell at the runners, encouraging them to win! But, despite my zealous cries, they did not win. Thankfully, we had one last race! So I got ready to rally the team, hoping we could win that last race. I turned to face the team, but everyone was gone. I asked my friend, “Where is the team?” He replied, telling me that they all left the race. They are not finishing the meet. Instead, they are standing in the tent, waiting for the buffet, which comes at the end of the meet.
I awoke and instantly knew what the dream meant: The church has settled for a life of “just being saved”—they left their race of holiness—boringly waiting for the banquet at the end (The Wedding Supper of the Lamb; Rev. 19:9).
The track meet symbolizes the church’s corporate race of holiness. We are supposed to walk holy & to “GO” make disciples. Your personal race of holiness affects the whole team.
We were losing 35-0 (Isaiah 35), which is a promise from God for Israel, declaring revival will come with power and miracles and GRACE to make His people Holy. Israel will walk on a highway of Holiness. Heb. 12:1-12 affirms that this truth is also valid for you today! God is calling you to run your personal race of holiness—by His GRACE! Your part affects the whole.
EVERYONE LEFT THE RACE
In the dream, everyone left the race, went to the tent, and waited for the buffet at the end of the event. The church in America is at a divine moment. We can either finish the race, or we can give up. You can either run your race of holiness or give up.
PLEASE DON’T QUIT!!! Settling for “just being saved” and waiting to get into heaven, to eat at The Wedding Supper of the Lamb is not the end goal. Stay in the race of holiness and Go forth with God to make disciples. If you don’t quit, you win!!! #happyholiness
WHAT IS THE VISION? (6min.41sec.)
WHAT ARE THE PRE-FOUNDATIONS? (10Min.05sec.)
WHAT IS THE WORD + SPIRIT = UNDERSTANDING? (23Min.27sec.)
WORD: The Word of God is sacred (holy). The writer of Hebrews taught that God’s Word was alive and active (Heb. 4:12). This means that His Word is truth that will transform you and that it is the light to your path (Ps. 119:105) (today and in the age to come). The Word also reveals the heart, longing, and loving affections of God, teaching you who He is and what He thinks about you. We provide rich, biblically sound, teachings so that your soul will flourish in the safety of the Scriptures!
HOLY SPIRIT: The Spirit of God is a Counselor, Guide (John 16:13), Friend, and Teacher (John 14:26). Also, the Holy Spirit has creative power, bringing living and fresh revelation to your heart, soul, mind, and strength (Eph. 1:17). The Holy Spirit searches the deep things of the Father (1 Cor. 2:10) and we provide the opportunity for you to enjoy and cultivate a fresh, vibrant, deep, and loving relationship with Him.
UNDERSTANDING: As you combine the Word (lamp) with the Spirit (guide) you will grow in Divine Understanding (powerful revelation). Divine Understanding is like a rushing, life-giving waterfall in your life. Imagine a river flowing along a stream bed, quickly cascading over the edge, plummeting down, crashing upon the rocks below. The river bed is the Word, which provides firm foundations and boundaries, while the water is the Spirit of God, which flows along powerfully. The waterfall is the moment when the Word and the Spirit combine and LIFE explodes forth, taking everything from one level to the next! Holy Clubs provides the tools you need to go from one level to the next, so that Divine Understanding bursts forth, out of your innermost being like a waterfall of living water (John 7:38), touching the ends of the earth.
