And say to Archippus, "Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord that you may fulfil it." Colossians 4:17
Whilst it is generally agreed and accepted that God has a plan, many remain lost when it comes to knowing and realising that plan for themselves. The call of God is deemed as elusive or reserved only for full time ministers. Destiny sounds good but what does it mean practically for the average believer-in-the-pew?
Without doubt, these ideas are not new at all. We have heard it more than once. Over time, it becomes yet another Christian statement that everyone knows but few experience. After all, it’s hard work, both for the individual and for the church. It’s far easier to organise services, events and activities, have as many participate, than it is to walk and journey with those with a sincere desire to know their place in the kingdom.
For this reason, the Lord has prepared Archippus Awakening, dedicated to the awakening of the saints that they may know and fulfil their God-given kingdom assignments.
Archippus Awakening is an eleventh-hour message, sounding a clarion call for all to wake up and participate in what the Lord is doing in these final hours. The time is short and the days are urgent. Clearly, it is no longer church or business as usual.
This is graphically represented through the orange arc of our logo: the final quadrant of the clock as we approach the midnight hour (Matt 25:6). The arc also reminds us of the glow of a rising sun, signalling that this is not the time to be caught in slumber but to awake and arise that we are not surprised by the coming of our Lord (1 Thess 5:4-6).
The time is now for Archippuses to be awakened, aligned and assigned for Jesus and the purposes His kingdom!
