Being Informed

Definitions for Being Prepared in Truth

Presence

The Presence is first and foremost! Presence is a Person-The Trinity- Father, Son, Holy Spirit. He is the Rock of habitation to which we can continually come-His Presence has no hours of operation, His Spirit is constantly moving- the question is are we abiding in Him and staying in His flow, listening, hearing, and obeying His Voice? It’s The NOW- what is God saying right now! ALL He has to say is most cherishing!

We have full access to His Throne Room-He’s waiting for us to enter boldly with thanksgiving & praise, know our identity as a child of God and receive ALL that He has for us! Allowing His Presence-His Kingdom-Righteousness, Peace, Joy… the FULLNESS of the Cross- to invade the darkness of hell in our lives and others. God desires that all of His children would walk in the full knowledge of His crucifixion and the full knowledge of His resurrection Power! Living eternally minded with the Mind of Christ and walking in His Authority as His beautiful Bride.

THE TIME IS NOW! No sitting passively waiting to go to Heaven, we are called to bring Heaven’s Kingdom of Eternity NOW! The Beauty that is coming-His Glory, the outpouring of His Spirit- and has already begun, it’s like a flash flood. The waters are rising so quickly and the current is sweeping so fast – the time to jump in with no reservation is now! We believe He is reconciling ALL THINGS back to Himself. The earth is the Lord’s and all it contains; the Glory of the Knowledge of God is covering the earth as the waters cover the sea. It is a pivotal time in which He is turning His Bride’s heart back to Himself by His Perfect Love. His Perfect Love that takes the chaos, the messy, the ugly of our lives and turns it into a New Song, displaying His Glory. A New Life in Him full of Grace and Loving well…walking in the wholeness and Holiness as His mature Bride. Moving forward as His Army, His Church with no walls- One Body, One Spirit, One Hope, One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, One God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all!
(Ephesians 4)

Prophecy

Prophecy is the testimony of Jesus Himself…hearing God (knowing, seeing, feeling, hearing, tasting, smelling) what He is saying in the NOW moment and partnering with His Spirit in Faith to BELIEVE Him! It’s Divine revelation that He desires to communicate with us. God really does have a lot to say when we shut up and listen! Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.

We prophesy and know in part therefore we should cherish every word from the Lord because each piece unfolds the bigger picture. He is not man that He could ever lie, every Word of God is flawless. It is the Lord’s counsel that will stand, while He brings the counsels of the man & nations to nothing. His word says that lies are soon exposed but Truth will stand the test of time. Prophecy is the Truth of the mysteries and revelations of what He predestined before the beginning of Time. It is the Glory of God to conceal a matter and the wisdom of kings to search it out. In a man’s heart are many plans but it is the Counsel of the Lord that will stand. His Word gets tested and is refined in the fire, the trials and tribulations of life, it’s our choice to stand and believe what God says is truly, truly the last word!

God desires for ALL His children to prophesy! In 1 Corinthians 14:1 NASB Paul writes: Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. Then in 1 Corinthians 14:3 scripture reveals the purpose of prophecy and who the gift is for: But one who prophesies speaks to men for edification and exhortation and consolation…one who prophesies edifies the church. Spiritual gifts are a beautiful display of God manifesting Himself, however we are to pursue Love- Him- first and steward from the motivation of Love so we are not just clanging symbols with no power.

Spiritual Gifts / Fruit

1Cor 13-14 / Rom 12 / Eph 4

First and foremost Love! Seek The Kingdom of God first and all these things shall be added…

We don’t “focus” on gifts or miracles here, we focus on THE GIFT, THE MIRACLE- HOLY SPIRIT! As we Love God and seek His Kingdom first, keeping our eyes and hearts steadfast on Him and His Ways- THEN… the gifts and miracles will flow effortlessly. Our gifts are important because they come from our Good Father, and He gave them to us to be used for others, not ourselves.

We must ‘KNOW’- have an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit. The nature of Him and character of Him…from only Him should the gifts flow and operate. The gifts should always flow with fruit- The Holy Spirit is Divine Love and reveals Himself through various expressions- Joy that overflows! Peace that subdues! Kindness/Sweetness in action! A life full of virtue! Faith that prevails! Gentleness of heart! Strength of Spirit/self-control. TRUSTING GOD AND NOT MAN! We are teaching, equipping, training God’s children in all areas- launching them to be the Sons & Daughters He created them to be.

Prayer

Jesus went away- drew further away especially when the crowds demanded more. (Matthew 23 & Luke 5:15-16, Mark 1:35, Luke 6:12-13, Mark 3:13)

To whom much is given- much is required. As we get ‘busier’ and the Lord entrusts us with ‘more’- our prayer time must increase. Seeking His face and His Presence must be first and foremost. Prayer is not difficult, rather a BEAUTIFUL RELATIONSHIP with God! It’s engaging with Him, communing with Him all throughout the day. The simplicity of walking with Him as Adam did in the Garden and adoring Who He is….cultivating Him. Seeing, feeling, hearing and knowing Him more and more. This is a must for all children of God. You won’t get very far without this beautiful intimacy with Jesus- it will be like “running out of gas”. (Matthew 25) Your fuel has to be Him- everyday awake to Him! 

Prayer is not difficult!
Listen, talk,
ask, seek,
knock.

Praise Him, Adore Him, Thank Him…

… Enter His Gates (Psalm 100)

Adoring Who He is- exalting ALL His Names, Who He is. Some foundational Names of God are:

~Elohim- Most High God

~El Shaddai- Sovereign One/God Almighty

~Yahweh- I AM 

~Adonai- Lord/Master 

~Jehovah Rophe/Jireh/Nissi…He is so much more! 

Healing

One of the most important mandates about Wings is that we are a prayer ministry, empowered by the power of the Holy Spirit, to bring healing to the brokenhearted and freedom to the oppressed. Jesus came to make us whole. He was moved with compassion to heal the sick, raise the dead and cast out demons. Like Jesus, we are about our Father’s business! Jesus did nothing by himself; He could only do what He saw the Father doing because what the Father does the Son does also. How Jesus brought forth healing was always different but the response of those He healed was YES LORD & BELIEF. His Faithfulness is our expected end; how He chooses to Love an individuals heart back to wholeness AND His timing of that, is the beautiful mystery and excellence of His Ways. His Ways are perfect, His judgments are right, and His testimonies are true. The Knowledge of Him, His character, Who He is, His Heart is constant and never changes. God wants relationship, not just lip service. He desires our whole heart, as He wants to reveal the Knowledge of His whole heart to us.

***FULLNESS OF THE CROSS
The key that unlocks our hearts and restores the foundation of our lives is Forgiveness. As He, by the power of His Spirit, breaks generational curses, dismantles lies we are in agreement with and tears down strongholds; is when we will experience a deeper revelation of the freedom of forgiveness- receiving it, giving it and asking for it. Tangible forgiveness that allows His Love to cover the sin and His Mercy- The Blood of Jesus- to acquit the record of it. And then allows His Love and Presence to fill & satisfy those voids with His blessings.

What can I say about this- this is where I stand daily- where we stand- IT IS FINISHED! Jesus, by the magnificent, beautiful, unconditional Love and will of His Father, took sin and death, you and me and settled every argument! He Loves, He Saves, He Heals, He Redeems! We don’t water down the Cross- we stand for Truth- not man’s truth, not religion, not the world’s truth- only the Truth!

Fasting

Fasting is a normal part of life – A lifestyle of normal. This is christianity, not religious activity or something to check off a list at the beginning of the year. Many fasted in the Bible, both Old and New Covenant.

Jesus said, “When you fast…” (Luke 5)

Jesus also spoke about it in Matthew 6 in the context of Kingdom Living- starting with Giving, Praying and then Fasting. All are equal. One might be easier than the other, although none are optional. Jesus says- when you give, when you pray, when you fast. It’s not just once or twice- this is a lifestyle! We are supposed to be different, in this world but not of this world, in-love with Jesus not religious.

Deliverance

When we break alliances -agreements with darkness, the enemy’s darkness – he leaves! The Truth is – He rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of Jesus- Light!

There are two kingdoms- God’s and the world’s (enemy’s). Every moment we are residing in either God’s Kingdom or the world’s kingdom. We have to choose which one we are going to serve. Jesus warned us not to be deceived and led astray. Any wound, lie or stronghold in us that is not the Lord will cause us to be led astray- this explains the brevity of our need of this man Truth! The enemy wants to take hold and come into the stronghold, curses, wounds- however he can get a foothold (Ephesians 6 / 2Cor 10) and it is our job to kick him out!

Deliverance is a major part of healing the spirit, soul and body.

We don’t ask “why” (question God) – we ask how, when, and where – for His Way!

Forgiveness, Obedience, True Repentance, True Godly Sorrow

TRUTH sets us all Free.
Not my truth, not your truth – His Truth!

Intensives

Intensives are designed to disengage from the distractions of the world and fully engage with the Lord. It consists of staying overnight at Wings between one to four nights, having multiple sessions during the day and soaking in the prayer room. It’s a time to go deeper with the Lord and allow Him to radically encounter you….the knowledge of God can never be exhausted!

Request an Intensive

*Currently all intensives for the Portland & Somerset Wings are being held at the Louisville Main Hub location – 11805 Brinley Avenue, Louisville, Ky 40243. Please call 502-244-1557

Sessions

A time of encounter…ending the wrestle of soul & spirit…truly experiencing the way He designed us to be met. Allowing Him in- into wherever He Knows that you need and He Knows you desire Him- filling every void of desire while allowing Love to have His Way (Psalm 27:4, Psalm 37:4). We are deceived by what we don’t know. This is why it’s vital to say YES and let Him break down walls, most that we never knew existed, as He enlightens and opens our spiritual eyes to fully see Him-TRUTH. Bringing Truth to those places while being led by the Spirit of Truth!! (1John 2, Ephesians 1, John 16)

THE LORD IS SAFE! We keep and put our TRUST IN HIM, for we are constantly being equipped to be His instrument He flows through. He is the One who protects hearts as His Omnipresence so graciously binds/heals wounds- AND kicks butt with lies and demonic strongholds….making us whole and setting us free. The strategy of The Father – His Will is beautiful. So call and set up a time to be personally ministered to and prayed with…to see Him, Know Him more & more!!!

Equipping & Training

Wings mandate is to host His Presence and cultivate the atmosphere of Heaven; bringing His Kingdom to earth, calling forth prophetic destinies, bringing forth the identity of God in people cities & nations, equipping them to be all God created them to be, and sending them out because the Harvest is RIPE!

We want to BE READY (PREPARED…MATURE) in all areas as a Body. Whether healing, deliverance, hearing the Lord, administration, leadership or etc. For when there is a need we are able to confidently meet this or connect with others that can. Trainings are necessary, therefore, increasing and expanding! This includes First Aid/CPR, emergency and trauma training, along with Ham Radio certification. These areas of training are needed in many different scenarios both small and large. This is where we appreciate the Body of Christ and all that we are individually called to- and we must support and encourage one another!

Many say – the “training and equipping” goes on daily here; with everything we do. With the Lord there is Life and Movement- to worship (serve) Him – Spirit & Truth! The Foundation of Jesus the Cornerstone and His Word and Spirit… the plumbline. This “training” is ongoing and specific. Please sign up for notification emails or call with any questions.

Serving

1 John 4 Those who are loved by God, let his love continually pour from you to one another, because God is love. Everyone who loves is fathered by God and experiences an intimate knowledge of Him…loving one another should be our way of life!

This LOVE (serving) is not of this world- it is of another world…another Kingdom- God’s Kingdom (psalm 110). It is signing up for Love. To Love and to be Loved. Letting Love take over more and more and allowing the ‘what about me’ to die….falling into the ‘DEEP’ … experiencing, learning, being revelated, changed—–this is choosing Love!

We want to encounter Life with you! Experiencing and Knowing the Father’s heart, seeing His vision and bringing His Love to a broken world. Jesus gave His all when He willingly gave up His rights as God and chose to serve us by giving His life as ransom for all. Jesus had no agenda of His own…He said His food was to do the will of His Father who sent Him (John 4:34). Doing justice, loving kindness and walking humbly with God is what He calls good! Being a free-will offering for His Kingdom- His Army!!

Serving Jesus and others is giving your whole heart, your whole life to Him. When God sends you to a church/ministry and you desire to help and be apart- it’s always 100%. Him first and catching, moving, agreeing with His Vision and purposes of why He planted you, while trusting Him in all His Ways. When and if people struggle with truly joining hearts with others and serving, most often it is from insecurities of believing their identity as a child of God. There will be seasons of trials, testing, pruning that we all will go through when linking arms together but we must persevere through it- ALL FOR LOVE! RECONCILING! Don’t give up – for you are a child of the Most High- a Warrior- a Lover! We have to let Him satisfy and fill the ‘voids’ and then flow from a place of confidence in Him – ABIDE and from here- ALL THINGS ARE…

Psalm 110:1-3 NASB
The Lord says to my Lord:
“Sit at My right hand
Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”
The Lord will stretch forth Your strong scepter from Zion, saying,
“Rule in the midst of Your enemies.”
Your people [a]will volunteer freely in the day of Your [b]power;
In [c]holy array, from the womb of the dawn,
[d]Your youth are to You as the dew.

Wings is so blessed with the most amazing servants and so thankful for each one giving their all for the Lord, serving HIM and those around them. If you desire to be apart of this beautiful journey and you believe God has/is calling you- please call, email or stop by.

There are some requirements God has set in order before one officially serves. All are interviewed and prayed for. Your unique gifts and heart is welcomed here!

Partnering

The early church united according to the teachings of Jesus (Matthew 5-7). Truly being a Partner- spirit, soul, and body. When God connects us together we are to look to Him, watch Him and trust Him. Allowing Him to unfold the reasons why and the instructions for ‘how to”. Our ‘visions’ are each a puzzle piece to His One Vision- He cares about our dreams and visions because He is the one who gave them to us! We submit them back to Him and believe and trust that what is of Him will remain and what is not Him will not stand- this is truly what we are all longing for! And when we truly encounter this understanding and BELIEVE, we will be abandoned to Him, unified and allow Holy Spirit to lead. Through His Eyes there is no threat to ‘your vision’ because it’s truly His Vision- His Government – His Order- His Ways of how His One Vision is to purely unfold. If God is for us- who can stand against us!?! We have to keep pressing forward and stop agreeing with how things were done in the past (failures-wounds- fears) but in maturity and Love press into His Partnership… stepping out of molds and into the powerful expression of Him. This is the BEAUTY of Christ knitting, fitting and joining His Body together- the Government of God (Ephesians 4).

Partnership is not what we can give and get from each other, rather it’s locking arms through IT ALL… being obedient to His Voice… The Faithfulness of God! Becoming who we are to be for now and for later. Partnership is speaking Love & Truth and running together for Him and keeping our eyes stayed on Him! Constantly flowing with the Lord- His Spirit- keeping our hearts connected, asking where & how & what are you doing and how can we help each other. And watch The Lord put all things together His Way-His Agenda- Trusting Him- Loving God and Loving others!

We are partnered with many churches and ministries- we honor them and support all that they are and what God has assigned them to do. Each ‘partnership’ looks different. Some are in prayer, some we support with the help of our healing/prayer rooms- some worship – others we are literally on the ground doing “the stuff” and running together. In our hearts it’s all important because it’s all important to God! Because we know how Jesus feels about ALL His sons and daughters. If you want to join us, help us, need help- call, write or come by anytime!!
