Please tell me why should I like your new Facebook Ministry Page and need one of my own?

Many of you who are my friends will be getting a request from me to LIKE (Follow) my new FB ministry page. I have found out that Facebook doesn’t like people to run a ministry (a not-for-profit organization) from a profile. FB has set up PAGES for that instead.

You can still do the “works of ministry” on your personal PROFILE page, I to will continue to share about the kingdom of God and Jesus on this profile page. But just as Glory Worship Center and Nashville House of Prayer are 501c3 ministries so is Tony Nobles Ministry and therefore I needed to make it a ministry page.

*** It is because of our monthly financial partners that give faithfully each month to Tony Nobles Ministry at TonyNobles.org that I have a salary to serve and give leadership to many ministries including Glory Worship Center and Nashville House of Prayer and RooHOP***

So what we should know is this;

FB Profile is for real people.
FB Pages is for organizations and public figures (ministries).
FB Groups is for a closed group of people to communicate.

So I have set up a new Facebook Page for Tony Nobles Ministry.
https://www.facebook.com/tonynoblesministry

Please join/follow and share.

It is also a wise move for me, and I suggest it also for many of my friends in ministry. It will add a layer safety and protection for you and your family, your FB ministry page will be open to the public, while your profile, can be set to be seen only by your friends and family.
Profiles have a 5000 “friends” limit, while Pages are limitless and can have millions following your ministry.
As the ministry has grown, I have more and more new friend requests each day. Many are friends of a FB friend, but so many now are not people I’ve met in person and many for countries out side to USA. So it would be best for my many new requests to follow me through my ministry page and leave my Profile for my friends and family.

So to my friends and family I encourage you to continue to share on your FB PROFILE “The Kingdom of God and Jesus Christ”. But to my friends that are ministers that are 501c3, I encourage you to follow FB instructions and Start a FB Page for your ministry.

“He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ—with all boldness and without hindrance!” Acts 28:31

As part of Tony Nobles Ministry I enjoy helping people to be “equipped for the work of ministry”. I would be more than happy to talk and train anyone on how to get setup FB Pages, Web Pages, and even how to start your 501c3 as a missionary as we have with the help of the great team at Artist in Christian Testimony.(https://actinternational.org)

Blessings and Shalom,
Tony Nobles

What has the Lord called you to? What a Call to Be Holy, you say?

Many are talking about their “Calling” is going to be fulfilled in the New Year, but who will answer the call to be holy?

To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours:

1 Corinthians 1:2 (NIV)

Notice the verse say “those sanctified in Christ and called…”
Many will say I’m already holy because of Jesus on the cross, but here Paul is saying that sanctified is past tense, you are stilled called to be, being made Holy, by taking up your cross and the inward working of the Holy Spirit.

Many people want to find their life calling but fail to have a desire and understanding of a calling to be holy. The Idea of Holiness is to be set apart for a sacred use and no longer used as common everyday use. Just the Idea that God wants to use use is a starting point for us to be holy. God is calling us to be “holy” for His mission for our lives.

So to have a “calling” it must by definition start with holiness.

Are we sober and alert enough to pray?

Is the Church to Drunk (not of sober mind) to pray? Is this why in the American Church we see on average that less than 10% and as low as 1% of a church will show for a prayer meeting. Most church members feel that corporate prayer meetings at churches are not a biblical imperative to participate in. In many regions of the earth outside of America people will walk for days for prayer meeting and church services. Why does the American Church have such a low value and dovation to prayer?

Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray.
1 Pe 4:7 (NIV)

Why did Peter warn the church to be sober and alert as to not hinder prayer? Dunk and unawareness from what?

2 With a mighty voice he shouted:

“ ‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’
She has become a dwelling for demons
and a haunt for every impure spirit,
a haunt for every unclean bird,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.

3 For all the nations have drunk
the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

4 Then I heard another voice from heaven say:

“ ‘Come out of her, my people,’
so that you will not share in her sins,
so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
5 for her sins are piled up to heaven,
and God has remembered her crimes.

Revelations 18:3–5 (NIV)

All of the nations are drunk from the Spirit of Babylon. She has made the Nation and leaders drunk on her riches and her perversions. Is the American Church not responding to pray without ceasing because she is no longer alert and sober? Has most of the American church become drunk and not alert enough to know that she has become part of the Babylon system?

Why does heaven call “My People” out of Babylon so that she will share in the judgement of Babylon? Are we more concerned about luxuries and things of this age than we are with the age to come and growing in our love for God?

If you think that the church is not drunk then how many in America do you think will show for a prayer meeting on the same night as the Super Bowl?

I ask you to pray with me for fresh fire of a revival of prayer for the church in America! All moves of God and the 1st Holy Ghost meeting in Acts 2 stated as the church was devoted to continual prayer. America desperately needs a move of God.

16 Rejoice always,

17 pray continually,

18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Th 5:16–18 (NIV)

What is Doctrine Good For Anyways?

Many people in today’s American Church are saying that all we need is Jesus and to love people, and that doctrine is divisive and only offends the lost.
But what did Paul say about doctrine?

Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
1 Timothy 4:16 (NIV)

Why did Paul say that Doctrine will save? Only Jesus can save by the work He finished on the cross, which Paul taught. But if you don’t have right doctrine, which is right thinking about God, you are instead creating your own version of God and worship a God of your own liking. Many want the salvation that Jesus freely offers but don’t want the Lordship of Jesus.

“from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,”
2 Ti 3:15–16 (NIV)

When we are studying the Old Testament Scripture and New Testament Scripture which Teachings of Jesus and the Apostles, if the Doctrine of Jesus as he taught and also taught by his Apostles don’t change our thinking, rebuke us, make us uncomfortable, and bring a greater desire for righteous and holiness, your must likely doing it wrong, or not studying scripture at all.

Just remember scripture and doctrine, which is right thinking about God as taught by Jesus and his apostles, are to stand in Judgment of our lives and bring about changes in our actions and thinking, not for us to judge scripture and doctrine and change them according to our desires.

Beware of godless men, who change the grace of our God

“For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.” Jude 4 (NIV)

Many think grace and mercy are the same thing. Others think grace is God’s favor or delight, but let’s start with understanding the difference between biblical grace and mercy.

Grace is the power of God to allow us to live holy by breaking the power and control of sin in us, and having the power to fulfill the will of God.

Mercy covers our sin by God’s forgiveness. But mercy can only be obtained through the confession of sin and repentance.

Repentance is turning away from and ceasing the acts of sin and returning to God’s grace to live in holiness and fulfilling God’s will.

Take  Jude’s warning seriously, because many want the mercy of God but not the Lordship of God. It is the same lie that the serpent in the Garden told Eve- “You can be like God”. To not be submitted to the will of God is to be your own god.

“For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5 (NIV)

Don’t let “Godless Men” teach you otherwise, and thereby denying Jesus as our “only Sovereign and Lord.”
