He IS so you ARE

We learned last night that our sweet sister, Denise Washington- who serves every week as the coordinator of our Needs Closet- is a powerhouse preacher!

Denise brought us understanding about who God is. She pointed out that we need to know who God is so that we can understand who we are. So true!

He IS so you ARE:

  • The light of the world
  • Holy:  be ye holy, for I am  holy
  • More than a Conqueror thru him that loves me
  • Steadfast and Unmovable
  • Victorious
  • Abounding, walking in plenteousness
  • An Encourager
  • Unstoppable, Unshakable, Undefeated
  • A Builder
  • A Mountain Mover- just by what I say
  • Sent- to manifest Jesus, do a job & get it done
  • Powerful
  • A Warrior
  • A Giant
  • Dangerous-I come w/a warning label & weapons
  • One with Jesus
  • A Good Soldier of Jesus that endures hardship
  • Pleasing to my Father
  • A Living Sacrifice
  • A Distributor
    – I take what Jesus gives me & I give it out
    – I go to the devil and take back what he stole from me. I take back what he stole from you and give it back to you.
  • BREAKTHROUGH – A term of warfare: an offensive military assault that penetrates and carries beyond a defensive line. An act or instance of moving thru or beyond an obstacle.  A sudden advance in knowledge or technique.

41 But he raises up the poor and lowly with his favor,
    giving them a safe place to live where no one can touch them.
    God will grant them a large family and bless them!
42 The lovers of God will rejoice when they see this.

Psalm 107:41-42a  TPT

Love + Power

Anyone want to see “on earth as it is in heaven?” WE DO! Each week at Breakthrough Minneapolis, we get to catch a glimpse.

We see wonders and miracles, encouraging prophetic words,  hearts moved by the reality of poverty, and hearts moved by the love of Christ. We see a team modeling the type of service that Jesus showed his disciples, and volunteers eager to serve, to make a difference.

When people look at this world and see what’s wrong, we can’t help but encourage them to come to Breakthrough. There’s just nothing more beautiful than people interacting in the love and kindness of Christ.

“I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows me in faith, believing in me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father! For I will do whatever you ask me to do when you ask me in my name. And that is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring glory to him. Ask me anything in my name, and I will do it for you!”

“Loving me empowers you to obey my commands. And I will ask the Father and he will give you another Savior, the Holy Spirit of Truth, who will be to you a friend just like me—and he will never leave you.” -John 14:12-17


We serve the homeless because Jesus said
“I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expectlife in its fullness until you overflow!

John 10:10b TPT


Ever been troubled by how Jesus’ disciples were treated once he returned to heaven? Beaten, arrested, accused, tortured, killed. Jesus warned them! But imagine what they had experienced with him to make them take the risks they took. Imagine what it was like to have a front row seat when heaven came to earth. You’d want to tell people!

“And because you follow me, they will take you to stand trial in front of rulers and even kings as an opportunity to testify of me before them and the unbelievers.” -Matthew 10:18 TPT

In EVERY circumstance, may we be faithful to testify to the goodness of God!

“For this is how much God loved the world—he gave his one and only, unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life.”

Every Sunday, we prepare dinner for 50-120 homeless and poverty-stricken guests at the Historic Wesley Center. Each one recognizes the pangs of hunger in their belly, but many don’t even know their souls are hungry.

One thing- maybe the most important thing- that made David a great leader, king, warrior and song writer was his hunger for God.

O God of my life, I’m lovesick for you in this weary wilderness.
    I thirst with the deepest longings to love you more,
    with cravings in my heart that can’t be described.
    Such yearning grips my soul for you, my God! -Psalm 63:1 TPT

We pray and minister to our guests during dinner, but will you join me in praying that more and more of our guests will become aware of their hunger for God and stay to hear the good news of life in Christ during our worship service?

Thank you!
