Partnership is the Lord's way of multiplying the resources, abilities and rewards of every believer. Through partnership with this ministry you can make a vital difference and it can make a difference in you!
Partnership is a Biblical principle that brings the Lord's blessing to both partners. Even the great apostle Paul had partners that supported him. In the book of Philippians he makes us aware of the importance he places on such relationships. Phil 2:25 "Yet I considered it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, fellow worker and fellow soldier, but your messenger and the one who ministered to my need." Here we see a remarkable relationship between the messenger. Notice how he ministered to Paul's needs. They were close friends. In fact, Paul loved the man. Verse 29 says "Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness, and hold such men in esteem."
Jan and I place great importance on the relationship with our partners. Remember this, good relationships may take a life time to build, but they are one of the few things we can enjoy here on earth and still take with us to heaven.
According to Vines Dictionary of Bible Words it can be used in connection with communion. It means fellowship, having something in common, participation together. The dictionary defines the word, "a partaker, participation, an association of people who contribute money and who share in the rewards of profit."
Partnership is a two-way agreement. Both share in the rewards! As partners, you not only participate in the heavenly rewards of this ministry, but also the anointing, the grace and the power that rests upon it as well.
The relationship between Elijah and Elisha bears this out well. In 2nd Kings we find Elijah about to be caught up by the Lord in a whirlwind. He implores Elisha to stay where he is (verses 2,4,6) but listen to the words of his reply. "As the Lord lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you." That motivation comes straight from the heart. Relationships! They were partners. In fact as Elijah is about to leave, he asks Elisha what he might do for him. His response is shown in verse 9 "And Elisha said, "Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me."
Where did the mantle, Elijah's anointing fall? Not on the bystanders and spectators but onto his covenant partner.

Jan and I firmly believe that the windows of heaven are being opened upon faithful believers as never before. Joel 2:21 says "And He will cause the rain to come down for you - the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil."
What a great picture of prosperity this is. Wine and oil always refer to the anointing. Verse 25 continues. "You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied." All of this happens when the former and latter rains come down. I believe He is talking about an open heaven. What is an open heaven? Malachi 3:10, says "Bring all the tithes into the store house that there may be food in My house, and try me now in this, says the Lord of hosts, "If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such a blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it." Such are the blessing of an open heaven!
Deuteronomy 28:12 says "The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations but you shall not borrow. And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, you shall be above only and not beneath …" Again the benefits of an open heaven!
Having every need met, an abundance of food, wine and oil. Joel 2:23-24
Blessings poured out which cannot be contained. Malachi 3:10
The blessings of an open heaven include good treasure, promotion, increase and prosperity. Deut 28:1-12
Under an open heaven:
The Glory of God was revealed. Acts 7:55-56
The Holy Spirit was poured out in bodily form. Luke 3:21-22
Jan and I stand in agreement with our covenant partners that the windows of heaven will be open for them as never before. That every need will be met - spirit, soul and body! That they will see the glory of God in their life and that the Holy Spirit will be poured out on them in greater measure.
First of all you are planting your finances as a seed. That seed may leave your hand but it never leaves you. It becomes spiritual seed that enters the realm of the spirit and begins to open the windows of heaven over your life. Your financial gifts enable us to teach the Word of God around the nation. Each year we speak in over 150 different churches and conventions right around this nation as well as the USA, New Zealand and Singapore. This year we are looking to expand our radio programs.
