We begin the launch of our Grace Explosion Prayer Center on December 25, 2016. Philadelphia Prayer will minister and broadcast live 24/7 II Chronicles 7:14 prayer across the spectrum of the internet. Our broadcast goals are to start livestreaming our prayer to YT then add by simulcast internet radio, Twitter, Facebook, Sermon.net, Itunes, and more internet livestream venues.
We are living in an age of the internet. Local radio stations are changing their broadcast venue to internet radio. Television shows are converting to internet vidcasts. Itunes distributes podcasts. All of these streams broadcast worldwide.
Our 24/7 II Chronicles 7:14 Philadelphia Prayer is being engineered via the internet to route the path of greatest reach and access in ministry to the worldwide body of Christ at the lowest costs.
We are now administratively organizing provision for those who work in the ministry. It is ordained of God that the setup of the ministry includes funding to those doing the leadership and organizational work. Initially, in startup, we will provide for the housing expenses. Home broadcasts will broadcast from our homes in the Church of Philadelphia house church/gathering pattern.
More information will be forthcoming.
Please see scriptural case below that those who do the work of the ministry towards the body of Christ are to receive financial reward from the body of Christ. The support provided by giving to The 300 initiative herein is housing expenses support only and not general income though income is ordained by God. We are beginning the ministry on our shoestring budget. In the Church of Philadelphia, our goal is to always work out of our homes and never have an institutional building. So, the housing costs cover the office/building expenses of Philadelphia Prayer.
Separate itemized costs of broadcast and giving towards those expense allocations will be listed here when compiled. Expense costs will include internet expenses, the cost of server rentals for broadcast, and required programs and the like. These costs are being held to a minimum to start.
The scripture declares that God has ordained that those who do the work of the ministry are to make their living from the ministry work they do. The workman is worthy of his hire. The scripture directs that those who do the work are not to be hindered from partaking in blessing from their labors when telling us in allegory that the ox who treads the corn is not to be muzzled.
Corinthians 9:6-11 Or I only and Barnabas, have not we power to forbear working? Who goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock? Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law the same also? For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope. If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?
Corinthians 9:13-14 Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
1 Timothy 5:17-18 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine. For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
