I was sent by Yeshua, the creator of heaven and earth.
So you would like to write for the Almighty? In other words, you think that you have a call to write as part of your divine calling? Good for you. Here are some things that you may want to consider as part of your preparation towards writing for the King.
Righteousness is the Basis of Kingdom Writing
It is written, “But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty” (Matityahu/Matthew 13:23).
You may recall this verse from the parable of the sower. The parable tells the story of a “sower” who went out to sow; the seed that the sower sowed is revealed by Yeshua (Jesus) as the “word of the Kingdom”. In the parable, there were four different types of persons who received the seed of the word of the Kingdom. I’d like to talk about the last one. This is the person who received the seed into “good ground”.
In relation to writing for Yahweh, you will need to consider that you must be able to produce the fruit of righteousness BEFORE setting out to write for the King. This is a necessity. It is a prerequisite for His will to be fulfilled in your life, through a writing ministry. Effective Kingdom writing, based on righteous fruit, necessitates the following good ground requirements.
1. Hearing the word of the Kingdom (it must be continuous throughout your ministry);
2. Understanding the word of the Kingdom (your revelation must progressively increase).
Without hearing and understanding the word of the Kingdom, thereby progressively increasing your revelation about the Holy One of Yisrael’s Kingdom Order, you will have very little to tell your generation that they may not already know. Also, consider that hearing the word of the Kingdom must be followed by obedience in order to understand, and subsequently produce fruit: “an hundred fold”, “some sixty” and “some thirty”.
Teaching the Word of God in wisdom Ultimately, when you write for Yahweh, you end up instructing your generation. Today, there are numerous “Christian” books out there that are of LITTLE substance. Why do I say this? It is because they were written OUTSIDE of divine authority and therefore did very little to instruct people in the way of wisdom. Yeshua is wisdom: all authority in heaven and earth has been given to him. Given this reality, stay under authority as you write for the King.
It is written, “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her” (Mishlei/Proverbs 4:7-8).
When wisdom becomes the principal or “first” thing in your life pursuit, it brings you to a place where you are better equipped to see and understand how your writing will impact a generation. Also, a focus on wisdom produces holiness. Through holiness, you will write only that which is relevant to the Kingdom.
So then, if you are going to write, prepare to teach. If you are male, and you are called to one of the three teaching-related ministries: apostle, prophet or teacher, then properly align yourself in Kingdom order. This will enable you to receive sound instruction in righteousness and will make your writing ministry effective and most of all, RIGHTEOUS. If you are female, then your focus will be teaching children and other women. In this regard, likewise, align yourself with authority so that you will produce RIGHTEOUS fruit when you write.
Fire in the Spirit Apart from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, another requirement is needed to write in the will of God. Frankly, you need FIRE. Yes, you read correctly. You need FIRE!
It is written, “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire” (Matityahu/Matthew 3:11).
The former words were spoken prophetically by Yochanan ha Matbil (John the Baptist). In speaking, he was referencing the future work of Yeshua in sending the church Yahweh’s Spirit.
When writing, there is an aspect of your writing that has absolutely nothing to do with you or your technical abilities. This is the fire of the Spirit! It is the ability of God’s Spirit to literally consume everything that is in its path so as to bring about a pure state. When writing for the King, fire is a requirement for writing in that it deals with the soul state of your readers. As they read your inspired works, the living God will also deal with purification of their souls and minds.
Conclusion: Prepare to Write for God ONLY Writing for God requires preparation. Here is a short summary of what to do if you are going to write for God.
1. Continue hearing the pure Word of God; 2. Acquire wisdom and understanding through study and application of scripture;
3. Develop your teaching ability in proper alignment with God’s will;
4. Devote yourself to the Kingdom so that you will be salted by fire.
Finally, consider the inspired words of the Apostle Peter as you inch closer and closer to your writing vocation in Christ. It is written, “And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity” (2 Peter 1:5-7). Amen (and so shall it be).
