Byron Burke - Your God-Given Gitf Will Make You Wealthy

Its written in the book of Proverbs chapter 18 and verse 16 that "A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men". Your business is within your God-given gift, and a business plan needs to go along with it.

About 95% of people fail in business because they go with an idea, without a business plan and loose hope. A business plan creates your road to success, including helping you save money along the way.
For example... If you need to go to the grocery store to by food or extras, you'll do some research in your home to see what's needed, then you'll make a list of the items required.
Stores are designed to have you buy things that are not on your list, that will effect your operating capital. By having the list, it will keep you focus and keep you within your spending budget, and you'll have a higher success rate than going without one. The same thing applies with starting a new business. You must do your research about the particular industry that you want to enter, and know who your competition is.
Your gift is where your going to find the right business, and fulfillment. To give you a clue about your gift, you must ask yourself this question.
What's that burning passion on the inside of you, that you always wanted to do? You may come up with 3-10 things. From that point, you ask yourself "What is that one thing that would get you up early in the morning and make you happy?"
The other question to ask yourself is "The thing that I want to do, is it to help others, or is it for myself?" If its to benefit yourself before others, chances are that you will have a very hard time.
Your gift will provides a solution for another, that will generate thousands, even millions of dollars over the course of time. But it must be something that you love, and its not about the money.
When you start to develop your business, many people around you may turn their backs on you, including trying to create ways to have you stop, or go into another direction. When that happens, you must stay true to yourself and keep going, regardless of your age or your financial situation.
If you can recall in the book of Genesis, chapter 12 and verses 1 through 4, it says,
Verse 1, NOW [in Haran] the Lord said to Abram, Go for yourself [for your own advantage] away from your country, from your relatives and your father's house, to the land that I will show you.
Verse 2, And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you [with abundant increase of favors] and make your name famous and distinguished, and you will be a blessing [dispensing good to others].
Verse 3, And I will bless those who bless you [who confer prosperity or happiness upon you] and curse him who curses or uses insolent language toward you; in you will all the families and kindred of the earth be blessed [and by you they will bless themselves].
And verse 4, So Abram departed, as the Lord had directed him; and Lot [his nephew] went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left Haran.
When you start operating in your gift, fear or the fear of failure, will try to take you off course and have you to turn back. But if you keep going, you will succeed!
Let's continue with Abram to see what I'm talking about in Genesis chapter 12, and verses 10 through 20,

Verse 10, Now there was a famine in the land, and Abram went down into Egypt to live temporarily, for the famine in the land was oppressive (intense and grievous).

Verse 11, And when he was about to enter into Egypt, he said to Sarai his wife, I know that you are beautiful to behold.

Verse 12, So when the Egyptians see you, they will say, This is his wife; and they will kill me, but they will let you live.

Let's stop for a moment and look at verse 12, you see that Abram was fearful for his life, because he thought that the Egyptians would kill him. When you are working on your business, there will come a time where you feel like you made the wrong decision or get very scared. That's part of your training to get built up in the areas where you are weak at. Now let's move on to the next verse.

Verse 13, Say, I beg of you, that you are my sister, so that it may go well with me for your sake and my life will be spared because of you.

Verse 14, And when Abram came into Egypt, the Egyptians saw that the woman was very beautiful.

Verse 15, The princes of Pharaoh also saw her and commended her to Pharaoh, and she was taken into Pharaoh's house [harem].

And verse 16, And he treated Abram well for her sake; he acquired sheep, oxen, he-donkeys, menservants, maidservants, she-donkeys, and camels.

Two things that you must look at is this. When you are on that path to building your business, God has assigned a partner for you. If Sarai was not with him, He probably would have been killed by the Egyptians. That's why God had it set up for you to have a partner during your travles on earth.
The other thing to look at is in verse 10 is that, there was a famine in the land. As you can see in verse 16, the famine had no effect on Abram. All of his needs were taken care of. If you had to compare the living standards of their time to ours, You'll have to agree that, we are living much better than they did. They had to walk, ride donkeys and camels. There were no paved roads or even automobiles. So you must keep that in mind while you on your journey. Let's keep going.

Verse 17, But the Lord scourged Pharaoh and his household with serious plagues because of Sarai, Abram's wife.

Verse 18, And Pharaoh called Abram and said, What is this that you have done to me? Why did you not tell me that she was your wife?

Verse 19, Why did you say, She is my sister, so that I took her to be my wife? Now then, here is your wife; take her and get away [from here]!

Verse 20, And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him, and they brought him on his way with his wife and all that he had.

Genesis chapter 13, and verse 1, SO ABRAM went up out of Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the South [country of Judah, the Negeb].

And verse 2, Now Abram was extremely rich in livestock and in silver and in gold.

Just think about Thomas Edison for a moment. If he gave up on creating the light bulb, we could possibly be living in the dark. The gift that you have will bring light to others, that will have an everlasting effect on others for years to come. Don't give up, don't quit!
God bless,

Increase Your Income - The Truth About Prosperity And The 10 Step Wealth Formula

Increase Your Income - The Truth About Prosperity And The 10 Step Wealth Formula

What if I told you there was an actual formula for WEALTH and that I am going to share it with you.

It begins with the Word of the Living God…

Deuteronomy 28:53, “It pleases the Lord to make you prosper”.
Deuteronomy 29:29, “Follow my commandments so that you may prosper in EVERYTHING you do”.
Proverbs 11:25, “A generous man will prosper”.
Proverbs 28:25, “He who trusts in the Lord will prosper”.
Jeremiah 29:11, “I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Job 22:21, “Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way, prosperity will come to you”.

Do you know there’s more scriptures supporting WEALTH and MONEY than there are talking against it?

The Formula For Wealth:

1. Don’t love money more than you love God. If you worry about money that means money is an idol to you.

In Matthew 5 or 6, it says, “Do not worry about what you will eat or what you will wear because your God in Heaven already knows what you need”. The enemy wants you to worry about finances to drive you away from God because he knows that if you ACTUALLY follow Him, love Him, and serve Him, God will prosper you and make you great!

2. Work with a spirit of excellence as unto Him. In Colossians it says, “Work with all your might unto Him”.

God is your boss. God sees your diligence, the extra hours, the motivation, and the heart that you’re pouring into your job and HE WILL bless the fruit of your hands.
Money comes from God!

3. KNOW that the money He is blessing you with is for a MUCH BIGGER PURPOSE than just YOUR stuff.

4. KNOW that it’s God’s money not yours. Money comes from GOD. He wants to multiply that money but when you don’t honor Him or you’re stingy with it He will not bless you with MORE. He’s not going to give you MORE so that you wind up destroying your life.

He loves you but you need to know there’s a difference between SPENDING and INVESTING. Which of these are wise spending and which are foolish spending?

  • Another pair of black shoes, wise or foolish? Foolish!
  • Another toy for the garage because it’s on sale? FOOLISH!
  • Going into debt to buy a car. Foolish!
  • Getting special training to grow your business so that you can become more efficient and more profitable, wise or foolish? WISE!!
  • Giving to God. Wise!

5. Be generous. God wants to bless you with MORE but He won’t unless you GIVE. That money in your hand is ONLY a test to see what you’re going to do with it. Can you be TRUSTED with MORE?

As long as my husband and I have been giving 10 percent we have never needed for anything! Even in my worst years financially, we have earned a six figure income. God honors His word.

6. Give into the right soil. This is absolutely enormous! When I learned this, my head just about exploded.

In the Bible, it talks about the parable of the sower and the four different types of soil that a farmer will sow into.

  • The rocky soil. If you sow seed on rocky soil it sprouts quickly because it does not have a root system. But then it gets scorched by the sun.
  • The hard soil. If you sow seed on hard soil the birds of the air come in and steal it away.
  • The thorny soil. If you sow into this soil it actually roots but as it pops up, it gets choked out by the worries of life.
  • Finally, the only soil that you want to plant your seed into, fertile soil. In the fertile ground there is a return of 30, 60 and 100 fold. So how do you know where the ground is fertile? You have to look at the fruit. If you want your money to return back to you 100 fold, you have to sow it into fertile ground.

7. Realize that there is a time of PLENTY and a preparation for a time of FAMINE. There are those who have figured out and strategically placed themselves because they were faithful during the PLENTY so they actually BUILT WEALTH during the FAMINE.
That is absolutely scriptural.

Are you in a season of plenty? That season of plenty is not for you to eat all your seed. That season of plenty is for preparation so that you may still prosper when other people are failing all around you financially.

Are you in a season of famine? If you’re in a season of famine and you are prospering where you’re planted and you can be trusted with what you have, you will GAIN MORE. That’s how the Financial Kingdom works!

8. You have to prosper where you’re planted. Do you have dreams and visions of where you want to go and what you want to do? Do you get frustrated because it hasn’t happened yet? Your frustration is a plan from the enemy to get your focus on what you don't have INSTEAD of focusing on making yourself prosper right where you are.

Joseph in the Bible had a gift to interpret dreams. He used that gift in prison and that’s what got him promoted to the top over night. He prospered where he was planted.
Ecclesiasties says, “Whatever your hands can find, do it with all your might”.

9. ASK and ask BIG. God is not a small God. It says that His arms are NOT short and His ears are NOT deaf. The Bible clearly says that no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has in store for those who love Him.

THINK BIGGER than what you’re thinking. Ask for help. The Bible says if you need wisdom, ask for it. If there’s something you don’t know how to do, ASK and He’ll show you.

10. Understand that it is okay to fail. There are ups and there are downs.
In the down time, don’t worry. Don’t fret. Just know that He loves you and He will prosper you. There are times you’re going to make mistakes and it’s okay!Because His GRACE FAR EXCEEDS the Heavens. His grace is ENORMOUS!

I’ve painted a picture for you of a Financial Kingdom. A Kingdom that spreads far and wide but the head of that Kingdom is God. Will you not submit to Him that He may bless you, that He may prosper you?

I KNOW THIS… my husband and I have been BLESSED since we’ve committed our business to HIM! Do you know that the business you’re in is NOT yours? It’s GOD'S and it’s for a PURPOSE! He wants to see His people be set free from financial bondage. Are you tired of financial bondage? Do you want to be free from it?
Then you have to commit your ways to Him...

The Causes Of Poverty - The Truth And How It Directly Effects Your Cash Flow

The Causes Of Poverty - The Truth And How It Directly Effects Your Cash Flow

Have you heard that money is the root of all evil? Do you wonder why BOTH really good and really bad people still have a LOT of money? I’m going to show you EXACTLY WHERE the bible talks about money and evil. And the TRUTH… might just shock you…

In Proverbs it says that money is the ANSWER to EVERYTHING.

There is a FINANCIAL KINGDOM. Those that are succeeding financially are following MOST of the laws of that Kingdom.

So HOW do you accumulate wealth?

Is it "RIGHT" to accumulate wealth?

What has the world said about money? You've got one side of the world that says, "Get it! More! Now!" You have the other side of the world that says, "Oh no. Did you see THEM, they’re driving a LEXUS... God have mercy on their soul!"

Have you judged the wealthy? You WILL NOT accumulate wealth if you have cursed or judged the wealthy.

There are two extremes in the Financial Kingdom...Poverty and Wealth...Proverbs says, “Rich and poor have this in common, the LORD is MAKER of them ALL”. The Bible says CLEARLY that He is a respecter of NO person. Did you think that someone who is wealthy must have some kind of favor? It boils down to YOU and the choices YOU make. The fruit of YOUR choices show up in your finances.

I will show you...

Proverbs 28:22, “A stingy man is eager to get rich and is unaware that poverty awaits him”. So what causes poverty? Stinginess and Hording.

Proverbs 21:17, “He who LOVES pleasure becomes poor”. Think about THAT... One that LOVES pleasure will spend EVERYTHING they have to get it.

Proverbs 17:2, “A man of perverse thought will not prosper”. The TRUTH is that "the LOVE of money is the root of all evil". The PERVERSION of that truth is "money is evil".

Proverbs 28:19, “He who WORKS will have ABUNDANT food but the one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty”.

They polled our country and asked, “What is your retirement plan?” And 25 percent of the people responded, “Winning the lottery”... THAT... IS... FANTASY...

Deuteronomy 28:47-48, “Because you did not serve the Lord your God joyfully and gladly in the time of PROSPERITY, therefore in hunger and in thirst, in nakedness and dire POVERTY, you will serve the enemies that the Lord sends against you”. During a time of prosperity, God wants you to bless Him. It shows throughout history that God, before time of repentance, would LAVISH His children with great prosperity to TURN their hearts towards Him.

His first method was to BLESS ABUNDANTLY so that they would just fall to their knees and say, “God we don’t deserve this. Thank you Lord for what you’ve done." but they didn’t... and guess what He did...?

1 Samuel 2:7, “The Lord sends poverty and wealth. He humbles and He exalts. He raises the poor from the depths and lifts the needy from the ash heap. He seats them with the princes and has them inherit a throne of honor." Do you want to be one of those that He exalts? Then there are some things that have to change.

I have searched every single scripture that talks about poverty and these things come out of ALL those scriptures.

The Formula For Poverty:

  1. Be lazy and half hearted. Work half heartedly to yourself or to your boss and it is a GUARUNTEE poverty awaits you.
  2. Fools, drunkards, gluttons and wasteful people will go poor.
  3. Be prideful during times of prosperity, forgetting God. That will bring on poverty.
  4. Hiding your sins. Proverbs says, “He who hides sin has poverty waiting for him”.
  5. The LOVE of money will bring on poverty. If you desire money MORE than you desire your God, your kids, your wife, then guess what, poverty WILL come on you.
  6. Being selfish and stingy is an ABSOLUTE formula for poverty. People that will not GIVE will be impoverished.
  7. Be FEARFUL and poverty WILL come on you.

So now you know how to become poor...Do you know the formula for WEALTH...

The Eyes of Faith

By Byron E. Burke

NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see {and} the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].

(Hebrews 11:1 from the Amplified Bible)

Many of the problems that believer’s face is going by what they see in the realm of the natural and not SEEING beyond the natural.

Just take a look at this scripture to get an idea of seeing into the realm of the spirit.

Hebrews 11:20 [With eyes of] faith Isaac, looking far into the future, invoked blessings upon Jacob and Esau.

Now let’s use this example of seeing into the realm of the spirit, in the future…

1. If you wanted something to eat now, where would you go?
2. If you are at home now, would you go into another room, or at work, would you leave the building?
3. If you have to leave, would you walk, drive, ride a bike, take the train etc?
4. After you prepare or order your meal, would you eat there, or go back to your current location?

Now many of you may be saying to yourself, why is he asking these entire questions and what’s the point.

If you at Hebrews 11:20, you will notice that Isaac was in the present moment, looking towards the future to send for a blessing upon the lives of Jacob & Esau’s life.

Now look at the questions that I asked. If you answered them, you will notice that you had a vision of the meal, what you would have to do in order to get the meal, including where you would eat.

Another thing to look at is that the spirit of fear or doubt wasn’t there to attack your mind and have you think that it’s impossible to achieve it. Amen

Let’s take a look at something that will blow you away…..

Genesis 1:26 God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth.

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in His own image, in the image {and} likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.

What’s God’s image?

John 4:24 God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship {Him} in spirit and in truth (reality).

So if God is a spiritual being and they (Father, Son & Holy Spirit) created us in their image, then somewhere in the middle of the realm of the natural and spirit, we are missing something.

You see, Satan’s goal was to keep mankind going by what they see in the natural / material realm and become blind deaf and fearful of the realm of the spirit. If he can keep our eyes and ears to the things of the natural realm, we stay in bondage to the things of the natural.

Are you with me so far….

Just look at this…

Genesis 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good (suitable, pleasant) for food and that it was delightful to look at, and a tree to be desired in order to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave some also to her husband, and he ate.

Now remember that they had the blessing back in Genesis 1:28

Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it [using all its vast resources in the service of God and man]; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and over every living creature that moves upon the earth.

The power was given to them in the realm of the spirit to command the things of the spirit to manifest into the realm of the natural. So if the enemy can keep the believers looking at the end result (the realm of the natural) and not the root ( the realm of the spirit), then one will not be able to call or see beyond the current situation.

I pray that came out right!! Amen

Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds [during the successive ages] were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the word of God, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible.

Matt 13:11 And He replied to them, To you it has been given to know the secrets {and} mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.

Matt 13:12 For whoever has [spiritual knowledge], to him will more be given {and} he will be furnished richly so that he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away.
Matt 13:13 This is the reason that I speak to them in parables: because having the power of seeing, they do not see; and having the power of hearing, they do not hear, nor do they grasp {and} understand.

Matt 13:14 In them indeed is the process of fulfillment of the prophecy of Isaiah, which says: You shall indeed hear {and} hear but never grasp {and} understand; and you shall indeed look {and} look but never see {and} perceive.

Matt 13:15 For this nation's heart has grown gross (fat and dull), and their ears heavy {and} difficult of hearing, and their eyes they have tightly closed, lest they see {and} perceive with their eyes, and hear {and} comprehend the sense with their ears, and grasp {and} understand with their heart, and turn {and} I should heal them.

Matt 13:16 But blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are your eyes because they do see, and your ears because they do hear.

Matt 13:17 Truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous men [men who were upright and in right standing with God] yearned to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.

Matt 13:18 Listen then to the [meaning of the] parable of the sower:

Matt 13:19 While anyone is hearing the Word of the kingdom and does not grasp {and} comprehend it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the roadside.

Matt 13:20 As for what was sown on thin (rocky) soil, this is he who hears the Word and at once welcomes {and} accepts it with joy;

Matt 13:21 Yet it has no real root in him, but is temporary (inconstant, lasts but a little while); and when affliction {or} trouble {or} persecution comes on account of the Word, at once he is caused to stumble [he is repelled and begins to distrust and desert Him Whom he ought to trust and obey] {and} he falls away.

Matt 13:22 As for what was sown among thorns, this is he who hears the Word, but the cares of the world and the pleasure {and} delight {and} glamour {and} deceitfulness of riches choke {and} suffocate the Word, and it yields no fruit.

Matt 6:25 Therefore I tell you, stop being perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat {or what you shall drink;} or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life greater [in quality] than food, and the body [far above and more excellent] than clothing?

Matt 6:26 Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they?

Matt 6:27 And who of you by worrying {and} being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature {or} to the span of his life?

Matt 6:28 And why should you be anxious about clothes? Consider the lilies of the field {and} learn thoroughly how they grow; they neither toil nor spin.

Matt 6:29 Yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his magnificence (excellence, dignity, and grace) was not arrayed like one of these. [I Kings 10:4-7.]

Matt 6:30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive {and} green and tomorrow is tossed into the furnace, will He not much more surely clothe you, O you of little faith?
Matt 6:31 Therefore do not worry {and} be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear?

Matt 6:32 For the Gentiles (heathen) wish for {and} crave {and} diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all.

Matt 6:33 But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.

Matt 6:34 So do not worry {or} be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries {and} anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.

God bless

Do You Know That You're Wealthy Now?

I'm trying to type these words out before I fall out on the floor with excitement! Many people get up everyday to go to work, or seek an investor to invest in their business or project, to help them achieve their finical freedom of their dreams. If you are someone like that, I want to stop right now.

Your wealth destiny started when you were born, but, over a period of time, you were informed by your listening environment (I.e, parents, friends, school ect) that you must work hard to see the manifestation in your life.

Its a natural born instinct within that you deserve and have a right to wealth (I.e, health, love, freedom, prosperity, family ect). The perfect example is to look at a 7 month - 3 year old. They see something that they want, and they go for it. Sometimes they even fallout crying. Why is that? That child knows its rights. But over a course of time, that child grows up like many of us, seeking something that seems so out of reach.

Gods divine plan was for every human to enjoy all good things on earth, not to be controlled by a select few. When you understand God's covenant, you will begin to see what God had intended for you to have in your control, to be a blessing to others on earth.

Millions of Christians around the world believe that you must be poor, just getting by every month, have used things instead of new to be in good grace with the Lord. That's a lie from Hell, and if you are one of them that believe that, I pray right now in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ, the anointed one and His Mighty Anointing that the spirit of brainwash be removed from you, and your generation line now!

For it is written in the book of Haggai 2:4-8

Haggai 2:4 Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the LORD, and work: for I am with you, saith the LORD of hosts:

Before we move on two the next scriptures, let's look at the part that says "and work". Its not only talking about having a job, its talking about working the Word of God, by sharing it with others every chance there's an opportunity, without being forceful, because the Lord doesn't force you to give your life to Him, its your choice.... lets continue...

5 According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not.

6 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;

7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.

8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts.

9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.

Now, some of you may be listening to a little small voice in your head saying that, you can't have gold or silver. If that's going on in your head, you must remember 2 Corinthians 4:4

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

That's why you mind must be renewed by the Word of God, as it is written in the book of Romans 12:2

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Another thing to remember is Genesis 1:26 where God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Let's look at the definition of the word "Dominion"
2: supreme authority : sovereignty
3: absolute ownership

The funny thing about that is this.. In fact, many of us are using our dominion rights, but its being used in the area of things that we do not want. For instance.

If you claim that you are sick, broke, poor, in debt, ugly, fat, stupid, crazy, shy, confused ect, then your God given authority will create that outcome and it won't change, until you change what you are saying out of your mouth, regardless of how you feel.

Start saying what God says, and you will start seeing the manifestation of His Word in your life. Amen.

To effectively execute the call on his life, he attended Christian Bible College of Louisiana where he earned Bachelor, Master, and Doctorate of Theology Degrees and Doctorate of Divinity. To further enhance his training, he taught at his Alma mater for several years.

Dr. Thompson has been in the ministry for 24 years, Pastoring for 22 of them. With all degrees in retrospect, he still did not know victory, according to God's standards, until he was exposed to the Word of Faith through the Ever-Increasing Faith and Kenneth Hagin Ministries.

In the fall of 1983 he was baptized with the Holy Ghost and his life catapulted. He captured the knowledge of the truth richly exhibited in the powerful Word of God. Knowing who he is in Christ, what belongs to him, and what he can do in Christ has burst forth a new creation. His ministry has been Ever-Increasing!

In 1984, he was instructed by the Spirit of God to change the name of the church from Mt. Zion Baptist Church (a 104 years old traditional Baptist church) to Word of Life Christian Center. He began teaching people how to live the life of faith; how to "walk by faith, not by sight; how to be well and not sick; how to live and not die; how to keep the devil under their feet; how to live the victorious abundant life in Christ Jesus; and how to be led by the Spirit of God." Church membership at that time was 75, majority being children. Membership has grown to 1700 and has tripled the population of Darrow.

He not only believes but he also knows that the keys to a successful ministry are the combination of praying in the spirit; living and teaching the Word of Faith; and following after the leadership of the Holy Ghost. He is married to Carolyn A. Thompson. They have four children, Leroy, Jr., Shauna, Donovan, and Clayton.
