b. 9:37 Then says he to his :disciples, The harvest indeed isplenteous, but the laborers arefew.

4Simon the Cananaean, and Judas :Iscariot, who also delivered him up.
4. 10:5a SENDING OF THE TWELVE: CHALLENGE
TOUtous tous DOde-ka aPEstei-len ho IeSOUS, pa-ragGEIlas auTOIS, LEgon,
These :twelve :Jesus sent forth, and charged them, saying,
NOTE: 9:36-10:1 - In Hebrew thought, human emotions are linked with body parts. Deep feelings of pity and compassion are linked with the intestines (e-splagchNISthe). This is easy to see. When we see an animal being hit and wounded by a car on a road, many people feel an inner pain of hurt or pity. This is what Jesus as Son of man felt for the shepherdless people of His day.
Notice next that He immediately offered a practical solution. To His disciples He said, Pray the Lord of the harvest, that he send forth laborers into his harvest. Straightway He commissioned His 12 disciples with authorityto do the same miraculous ministry of healing and casting out demons that He did. As wepray to the Father in Jesus' Name - Hewill raise up leaders like the apostle Paul in these last days!
Judas too received authority in this way, but it did notguarantee his salvation. Instead, he fits into the passage in Matthew 7:15-23 of false prophets, who felt because they prophesied in Jesus' name, cast out demons and in His Name did many mighty works, that He would surely receive them! But He called them workers of lawlessness, of whom Judas was one, and some of the professing evangelists of our day.
Be not deceived - all that glitters is notgold; and all professing Christians will not make heaven's pearly gates. Weoften lower the bars of the Kingdom of heaven to encourage goats in. But God's Kingdom rules refusethe goats, and only receive true sheep. Jesus advised us to make our calling and election sure. We should notjust hope so - we should press in until we know so! He who endures to the endshall be saved - Jesus' words! J.A.W.
“A HIGH RECOMMENDATION FOR A BOOK PURCHASE”
“WARFARE BY HONOR” - A Protocol Handbook
by Qaumaniq and Suuquiina
The power of protocol has not been lost so much as it has been ignored. Protocol is not simply etiquette or manners - it is doing what is right between people. It is about honor, dignity, place, space, history, achievement, wisdom and caring. By choosing the path of honor, we are actually engaging in warfare by honorand are restoring the power that true protocol has.
An Episcopal priest used protocol to honor a local Jewish congregation.
It resulted in a new relationship between that congregation and church.
They remain in a vibrantly increasing relationship today.
A Messianic Rabbi used protocol to honor two provincial mayors in Malawi, Africa.
They both said this had never been done before.
The mayors opened doors for the rabbi and his congregation all over their provinces.
A Canadian Grand-Chief led 96 First Nations people to the Knesset in Israel
and used protocol to honor President Avrim Berg.
He gave them his blessing and protection,
and imparted authority to them to “do in Israel what you came here to do.”
This is the power of protocol. Within these pages you will learn the many aspects of protocol. You will learn about honor and how to practice showing it to others. So prepare to be both challenged and encouraged through one of the most important books you will read this year - Warfare by Honor.
Suuqiina and Qaumaniqtravel across North America and internationally conducting Protocol and Healing the Land seminars. As equal partners in this ministry, it is their calling as believers to stand for justice and release believers from the effects of oppression. They model through their partnership in ministry, oneness and equality between the genders. Suuqiina and Qaumaniq serve as directors of “Indigenous Messengers International”, a restoration ministry. They also serve as the North American Representatives for Emmaus Way, a Messianic ministry in Tel Aviv, Israel, and are founding members of The Indigenous Christian Association. They reside in Alaska and California and have 4 children, 18 grandchildren and one great grandchild.
In July 1stof 1995 at Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
37 countries came for “The Gathering of the Nations”.
Here I saw my first example of Protocol.
Freda Cooper, granddaughter of a Coast Salish Chiefton
led some 20 tribes of the First Nations People in a vertical restoration relationship with God.
But first she welcomed some 2000 of us to their land in a Protocol Ceremony.
Then representatives from Great Britain, the United States and Canada
knelt and apologized and asked forgiveness from these 20 nations
for the way our countries had treated the aboriginal peoples.
David Mainse of 100 Huntley Street said
it was the outstanding day of his life in which he witnessed Protocol enacted.
Then in August of 2009 I was keynote speaker in Vancouver, Washington
for 90 representatives of the 4 major cities of Cascadia , the Pacific NW -
Vancouver/Portland, Seattle/Tacoma, Vancouver, BC/Victoria, and Spokane.
In a Protocol ceremony, a representative of the First Nations People
welcomed us to the land, and gave me as the keynote speaker
an Indian necklace, plus a book by Richard Twiss.
Thirdly I was invited to a meeting in Tacoma with speaker Suuqiina.
As an elder, he gave me Protocol honor for the work I am doing,
which both surprised me, yet honored me in an unexpected way. - Jim Watt
