On 6 December 2022, the final STAP session, we were proud to commission more than 30 Archippuses from Butuan, Philippines as well as from U.A.E. who walked through the awakening context over eight weeks under the leadership of our AAKO partners Pastor Rey Sanico and Maria Zandra Jao Senar. [AAKO: Archippus Awakening Kingdom Outposts]
Many have been awakened to their misalignments and are excited and eager to align to King Jesus and His kingdom towards being assigned for Him. Be encouraged as you read the various takeaways.
It has been in my heart that I am a soldier of Christ. Wherever the Lord commands me to go and whatever He commands me to do, I obey. But through the battles I face in life, I sometimes get wounded and have setbacks and I did not notice that I was already ‘sleeping’. Walking through STAP has awakened me to fight and be in the battlefield again, as a soldier of Christ, and to focus on God’s given kingdom assignment especially here in the Middle East and European countries where we are called to awaken spiritually dead churches, equipping and encouraging fellow soldiers of Christ. Though I’m already serving the Lord in the church, I have been awakened to distinguish Christian activities and kingdom assignments so I can focus on what God wants me to do. I understand now that the area of operation is not limited to ministries in church but also in marriages, families and the marketplace. By God’s grace, I will continue to awaken and remind others to know and obey their kingdom assignments as well. Thank you, Pastor Henson, and Team Archippus in Singapore, Philippines & U.A.E. You are all a blessing to me and for sure to more people. Glory be to God!Sandy Monasterio
“There but not quite there” is how I would describe my life before joining STAP. I was home but I felt disconnected; everything was familiar yet so foreign. Jesus is my Lord and Saviour, and I have been declaring this since giving my life to Him in 2019 but still, something was just missing. When the opportunity to join STAP came, I had no idea what to expect but just at the right time, everything that my heart had been yearning for had finally been answered. All my life, I was taught that it was all about patiently waiting and sharing salvation so we could go home to heaven. While that sounded appealing, that was not the gospel Jesus preached about. Through STAP, I saw that salvation isn’t the end goal—it is the first step for us to be restored to what God has intended in the very first place, and that is His kingdom. Now, everything that I have ever read in the Bible finally makes sense. Christ didn’t preach about being a therapist or a genie. From beginning to the end, from Genesis to Revelation, it has always been about the kingdom. After realizing this, I became complete. Nothing is no longer in vain because I saw that my life has purpose, even the most seemingly mundane aspects. I was created by Him and for Him. Life hasn’t been the same lately, and that’s in a good way. I’m beginning to discover what I was built to do, and I’ve started living more intentionally. I talk to the Lord and seek Him more so I can align and re-align with Him. There are so many things that the Lord has shown me through STAP but I think I can best sum it up through this: I’m finally where I’m supposed to be.Andrea Jane Jamero
My biggest takeaway is to be realigned and faithfully do the assignment God has given to me. As I did STAP and listened to Kingdom101 Teachings, I was awakened to the fact that I was doing a lot of activities but had slackened in doing my kingdom assignment. Realignment to God and His word was much needed. Many wrong interpretations of Scripture and my wrong mindset and thinking were exposed. I have been awakened again to the truth that it is God’s grace alone that qualifies me to run the race (to do the assignment) and only by His grace I can do my assignment so that I can His grace to others. Obedience to God, faithfulness and fruitfulness is key to doing and completing the assignment and not according to my speed or kingdom of self. I am accountable to God and only in doing my assignment faithfully, I readily await my Master’s return. As a result of I am learning to reprioritize how effectively I use my time, and my obedience to the Lord.Leni Binu
Awakening the saints (Christians) is urgent in our times because our days are evil. As the disciples of Jesus Christ, we must do something to convince and encourage other Christians that the time is now to act upon what God wants us to do, that is, our kingdom assignments. I must not be a mere hearer of the word but a doer of the word. Now that I am awakened, I must help sleeping Christians to move to their kingdom assignments.Esther Reyes
Personally, I recommend STAP for believers of Christ for an awakening. When my husband told me about Archippus Awakening, I was intrigued by the name and when I was able to attend his STAP ‘graduation’, I caught a glimpse of what it was all about. Then I wished that there would be another round of STAP that would not only be available to full time pastors but also to church workers like me. When the online STAP was announced, I was thrilled with excitement and anticipation of what the Lord had in stored for me. There are so many AHA! moments, from the almond tree as the ‘awake’ tree to the significance of the name Archippus. But the main thing is the realization that I am also like “Archippus” who is an ordinary servant of God, almost anonymous but intimately known by our heavenly Father. Now that I am awakened, I want to awaken others, who, like me, is also ordinary, but when awakened, through whom we can expect God to do great things!Alona G. Orihuela
I have been awakened to align so that I can teach others to be awakened and aligned too. It is not about doing Christian activities but about being faithful to fulfil my kingdom assignments. I understand better now what it means to move from my Assembly Area where I receive Christ to my Area of Operation where I reveal Christ. I have to disseminate the message of Archippus Awakening so that many may be awakened!Marina Lina Ruiz
We give all glory to God for all that He has done. Partner us to bring the awakening context through STAP to see many Archippuses seeking to know and fulfil their kingdom assignments!
