2018 THE YEAR OF THE LEAP INTO NEW BEGINNINGS!
ISAIAH 43:18-19 NKJV……18..“Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it?I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.
The African Impala (an African antelope) are amazing creatures that can jump to a height of over 10 feet and cover a distance greater than 30 feet. Yet Impalas can be kept in a zoo inside an enclosure with a simple 3 foot wall. Why? Impalas will not jump if they can't see where their feet will land. Do we have something in common with these antelopes? Able to take great leaps of faith, but refusing to do it unless we can see where we'll land?
In 2018 we will have to leap by FAITH.
The number EIGHT always means a NEW BEGINNING a NEW ORDER OF THINGS. EIGHT is the number for the NEW BIRTH or the NEW CREATION.
God saved eight people on the ark in order to have a new beginning for mankind after the flood.
Jewish babies were to be circumcised on the 8th day. The number 8 symbolizes circumcision the cutting away for the NEW.
KBCMI we came out of Completions in 2017 in order to receive New Beginnings in 2018.

EDIFYING, EQUIPPING, EMPOWERING FOR KINGDOM ADVANCEMENT!
EPH. 4:12. For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of CHRIST.
EDIFYING - The word ‘edification' comes from a Latin word, ‘aedificare' which means, “build”. The idea therefore is, ‘to improve the mind or character of some one by teaching'.
Kingdom is the sovereign, power, dominion, and rule to infiltrate, influence, and incorporate all who would receive its provisions, promises, promotion, and protection for the the Kingdom of God and for Experiencing and Enjoying The Kingdom lifestyle.
To Advance is to proceed progressively by divine impartation, inspiration, imagination and instruction to move forward the Kingdom of God and for Experiencing and Enjoying the Kingdom lifestyle.
ADVANCING THE KINGDOM OF GOD WITH FORCE.
The Role of each Ministry:
The Apostle lays the foundation; he reveals Christ and the heart of Christ for the Church. In other words, every Christian who receives the apostolic message knows from the moment he is converted that he has lost his life and that it no longer belongs to him. The Apostle is a father to many churches, leaders and Christians, as he provides oversight, direction and protection to the church thanks to the anointing on his life. The Apostle activates others into apostolic/prophetic service, by pouring into them that which is on his life. The Apostle is also a protector of the sound doctrine of Christ.
The Prophet has the very specific role of acting as God’s mouthpiece, inspired by the Holy Spirit. John the Baptist best describes this ministry under the New Covenant. When talking about Jesus he said: “His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” It is a ministry of authority, preaching repentance, purification and separation, accompanied by the fear of God.
The Evangelist’s consuming desire is to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ for the salvation of souls and he is ready to give his life for this. His message is simple but powerful and is accompanied by miracles and healings. The Evangelist’s presence in local churches is important because the anointing inspires Christians and encourages them to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Like a caring shepherd, The Pastor watches over, nourishes and protects the people of God. His anointing gives him authority in the local church, but he does not use it to dominate other elders and Christians under his care.
The Teacher is anointed to build on the foundation laid by the apostles and prophets by communicating the Biblical doctrine of Christ in a clear and accurate way. He delights in delving deeply into Scripture and the anointing enables him to impart truth to the Church.
The five-fold ministry does not consist of independent ministries. They all form part of the eldership of their local church and all work together in unity so that the saints may benefit from all different anointings and be equipped for the work of the ministry.
