Reformation Celebration thoughts

Here at the 500 year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, we find that wise men still seek God, still desire to know Him better, and still go to His Word with their questions. Martin Luther certainly asked questions as to why the existing ecclesiastical power structure operated they way they did. Here is a question that is even more basic: Did Jesus delegate any of His authority to men at all?  …

If Jesus delegated authority – if He gave command decision-making power to men on earth – that is very dis-empowering for those not so blessed with that authority. And if He did so, His written record, His Word, would be very explicit and clear about it. If He did so, obviously some men would always strive to be in those positions of authority. And if it’s up to men to effectuate the choice of themselves to be in that position of rulership, then the requirements – the application process – would also be very clear in Scripture, so that we could know what to do and how to apply for that position.

If on the other hand there’s nothing we can do – we’re simply chosen by God and we’re to know that by some means – that (how to know that God has chosen us for a particular leadership role) should also be clear in Scripture.

None of that is true, however. None of that is clear in Scripture, though men who find themselves in positions of human authority have interpreted Scripture to say that, and they have, by tradition, established a framework of rules whereby the leadership gets selected. But even there, men have differed inside the construct of that choice structure. Men have differed about the qualifications and the requirements and the application of the choice process.

But what if God’s desire is for all of us to be in a rulership position or for all of us to have access to a rulership position? What if God’s desire is for each of us to rule in his own kingdom, in his own sphere – to brighten the corner where we are, as the song says? What if God’s structure does not involve a hierarchy, a pecking order, from Himself down to the least of these (which hierarchy, by the way, would also be clearly delineated in Scripture, if that was God’s desire and intent and design, and not just invented and written down by the existing leadership structure, picking and choosing passages of scripture and interpreting them as it wills, in order to justify its assumption of authority)?

What if God’s intent starts with the individual and goes to the basic building block of society – the family: husband, wife and children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren? What if it involves men stepping into that responsibility in their own individual lives and in their family lives and learning and practicing and living by wisdom such that other men recognize their wisdom and their leadership and come to them for wisdom and for decisions and, thus, these men – these elders, as they become older – are given the respect that the authority in which they live naturally earns as they live in the wisdom of God and think God’s wise thoughts and make wise decisions, and others in the community look to them for the leadership that their wisdom naturally evokes?

It’s not a self-selection process in that somebody doesn’t just jump up one day and say, “I want to be the leader; I want to be the one in prominence. Y’all listen to me!” (In other words, it’s not at all like modern American politics.) Nor is it a selection process whereby a group of men choose somebody and give him a title and the very title itself carries authority, regardless of the man who holds the office that the title represents. (Like the United States Senate before the 17th Amendment.) It’s simply a matter of the wisdom that resides in that individual, in that man or woman, as the case may be – the wisdom inside that believer being so apparent that others recognize it and come there seeking that wisdom.

We could spend a lot of energy fighting against the false. At the start, it may be necessary to at least point out the falsity of the false, because some people lock themselves up in their closets, believing that, because they are not now in the hierarchy – the authority structure of the presumed authority entity – or because they’re not in favor, they’re not the chosen, or they’re too small to be considered – that there’s little that they can do, and so they live lives of quiet oblivion. Yes, to some extent we must point out the falseness of that counterfeit authority structure such that people don’t tie themselves to it.

But then the focus really needs to be on the positive: What does God really have for you? How can you step into the strength and the power of what He has gifted you to do? Regardless of what goes on around you, how can you be faithful to what God has given you to do? How can you fulfill those righteous desires that are in your heart that God put there without stepping on somebody else’s territory or without violating some authority protocol or something? How can you focus on the positive and step into the fullness of what God has for you? That’s a positive message. The only ones who would regard it as negative are those who are trying to hang onto the power or the comfort of the authority structure that’s built up around themselves, which is cementing their power and giving them a false sense of security and safety because of the structure in which they live, and which they believe has authority, not realizing (or admitting) that it has authority only because those who are under that authority have, consciously or unconsciously, ceded that authority to them.


#3 – Knows True Authority from False

#3 – Knows True Authority from False

The third qualifier for the man of God whom we seek is that he will have at least one area of leadership strength and that, while maybe not yet seeing and understanding all of the counterfeits that have oppressed him, he will at least understand how that oppression operates and will be open to seeing the other areas in which he’s been deceived.

Let’s face it: we are surrounded by counterfeit authorities. They all claim to have some sort of delegation of authority direct from God, but if that truly existed, it would be clearly identifiable in the Word of God … and, in most cases, it just is not there. But we constantly face counterfeit authorities in law, in government, in medicine, in education, in banking, in religion – in short, in all walks of life.

God does give leadership strength that carries authority, but it is authority of superior knowledge, wisdom, understanding, skillful application, ability to work with people in servant fashion (recall the servant leader factor that we discussed yesterday), or of request … meaning that someone asked you to lead him in a particular way and voluntarily contracted with you to do so. That is very different, however, from the tyranny of command that comes from position or opportunism. “I got here first,” or “I’m bigger (smarter, better looking, richer, stronger …) than you,” or “I’m the boss because I’ve got the title,” just do not work in the world of true authority. Yet we face that sort of oppression everywhere.

Except to parents of young children, God does not delegate any “because I said so” authority. No “office” or position among men comes with the authority of God attached to that title or position; the “divine right of kings” is anything but. That absolutely is not how God operates … though those who occupy such positions will surely tell you that He does – that He put them in charge and that we are to obey them. That, my friends, is oppression; it is tyranny, and God is not in it.

So while we operate in the area of our individual gifts, doing the job on earth that nobody else can possibly do but us, we must be careful to not operate outside of the limited authority that God gives us as we are faithful, either in our own operational leadership, or in directing a follower to submit himself without question to some third party simply because the third party claims a title or position of authority. And when in doubt, refer to Acts 17:11.

In conclusion: when we point out errors, please do not conclude that this is battle cry of opposition to what is wrong and that we are just looking for warriors to contend against evil. Rather, while it is necessary to see that one is enslaved by what many would consider “normal,” we would have the ecclesia to lift their eyes out of bondage, see the Prince of Peace, and rise up to live in the fullness that He has intended for us, His children. It is a positive message of light, living in which there can be no darkness.

Are you hungry to live in the light and freedom of Jesus’ ecclesia? If so, please let us know.

#2 – Servant Leadership thru Gifts

#2 – Servant Leadership thru Gifts

The second qualifier for the man (remember: includes woman) of God who would serve with us as the ecclesia rediscovers its legs is that he will be a servant leader and know his unique gifting by God for (a) specific purpose(s).

God is foundational. We covered that here yesterday. He is our bedrock, our King, our True North. We know who we are, first, in relationship to Him. We have no identity that matters apart from Him. But once we know Who God is and where He is relative to where we are right now, we become consciously aware of where we are in relationship to Him. We see things about Him that are reflected in us: God has a voice; we have a voice. God has a will; we have a will. And when we start to discover who we are in relationship to other people, we find out that there are no two of us who are alike. And that’s a good thing.

God made every man unique. Since Adam and Eve, God has given each of us certain combinations of gifts, talents and abilities which we can use to create things that glorify Him. He made us in His image to also be creative; He put within us each a free will, with which we could choose to honor Him; He gave us the ability to feel pleasure, so that we could be drawn to do the things that He created us each uniquely to do; and He placed us in the surroundings in which He did so that we could learn and develop and manifest those gifts.

Paul told us, in Ephesians chapter 4, that when Jesus ascended to heaven after His death, burial and resurrection, He “gave gifts unto men.” Those gifts included functions that were to build up the ecclesia as the body of Christ. But most importantly, those gifts were to be carried out by true servants – those who lead by giving and serving rather than by taking and commanding. Paul wrote the Corinthian believers, “For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it?” (I Cor. 4:7, ESV) The gifts did not make anyone better than anyone else, so they were not to make anyone proud or abusive; rather, our gifts are given to us so that we may better serve others.

So we are looking for men and women who lead by serving others with the unique gifts that they have been given by God and that they have worked at developing for His service.

Are you that sort of servant leader?

#1 – God is Number One

When Martin Luther posted his “95 Theses” on the castle door in Wittenburg, Germany, 500 years ago, thus initiating (whether he knew it or not at the time) the “Protestant Reformation,” his focus was aimed at reforming “the church” (the Roman Catholic Church, of which he was a part). He was focused on significant deviations from the patterns and commands of scripture that he observed in the church, such as the sale of indulgences, whereby one could essentially purchase a “get out of hell free” card (and which served to enrich the church official who sold the indulgence).

Luther was right to complain: i.e., he was scriptural in doing so, following the example of the Berean Christians who did not just take Paul’s words as “gospel” but who searched the scriptures daily to see whether or not what he was telling them was true (Acts 17:11).

Did Luther go far enough in his reforms? Well, it did little or nothing to change the Roman Catholic Church, and the “Protestant” churches that remained after Luther followed most of the same templates, moderated only by degrees.

Fortunately, in our day, there is a real awakening amongst believers who comprise the ecclesia (the word in the original Greek New Testament that has been systematically replaced with the word “church” and which has a completely different meaning), and many are, refreshingly, seeking to know what God’s true intent is for the ecclesia to be and to do.

As yesterday’s email article said, we are actively seeking some leaders for a very specific task – one that follows that pathway of discovering God’s intent for the ecclesia and that focuses on both living it out in practice and leading others to do the same. What will follow over the next few days, then, is a bit more elaboration on each of the 16 points of qualification that we listed.

The first qualification for one who would serve with us is that he (*English lesson: the correct personal pronoun for singular third person of indeterminate gender is, by the rules of English grammar, he, not “they” [which is plural], so this includes you ladies, too) must have impeccable INTEGRITY with a wholesome FEAR (respect, honor) and REVERANCE for Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. One must be IN Christ AND know who he* IS in Christ. God must rule as King in all areas of his life as THE Authority.

The task in front of us includes building essentially a university of learning, going back to many things that have been forgotten over the past 1700 years or so, and including some things that believers are just now finally starting to figure out. But whether or not you believe in new revelation (and that is not the purpose of this article), one thing that must be agreed upon is that God is foundational. He alone is true authority. Like the saying goes, if Jesus isn’t Lord of all, He isn’t Lord AT all. You, the reader, either understand that … or you don’t. If you don’t, we’re still talking, and we hope that this series will be of assistance to you, but our purpose here is, first off, to identify those who agree with our foundational premise: that God, our Creator, is at the top, and that His Son, Jesus Christ, is our Lord and Savior.

Jesus was not just a great teacher … or story teller … or prophet … or rabbi. He did not come to teach pacifistic everybody-feel-good peace. He is not rivaled by Muhammad or Buddha or Socrates. He is the Son of God, the Creator of all, the Word of God, the Savior of mankind, our great High Priest and King. And when people really grasp Who Jesus is, and start to think of His Ecclesia in those same terms, it starts to become clear why Rome and the leaders of Israel were so intent on killing Him. Well, guess what? He didn’t stay dead. Muhammad, Buddha, Socrates – all deader than dead, but Jesus rose the third day. And we who are His followers are pretty keen on following Him even better. And if you want an unofficial theme song for what we’re about, go to YouTube and type in, “God’s Not Dead!”

Now, this is not intended to be a doctrinal lesson, per se, but it is aimed at “separating the sheep from the goats.” There is much very serious business ahead of us, in every sense of the word, and it would be just plain silly to even think of setting out on the same boat together unless we agree at the outset on our destination.

So … still with us?

Come back tomorrow.

Celebrating October 31, 2017

If you ask Why celebrate this day, we would answer that it definitely is NOT about “Halloween.” No, we’ll go the other direction and celebrate the One Above, not the evil below, and remind you that on this day, 500 years ago, Martin Luther started the “Protestant Reformation” with his posting of his “95 Theses” on the castle door in Wittenburg, Germany. And while we may argue that Luther did not go nearly far enough in his reforms, we who are the ecclesia are always looking to find and to become better leaders amongst God’s people. To that end, we now seek some leaders for a very specific task. One who would qualify must:

  1. … have impeccable INTEGRITY with a wholesome FEAR (respect, honor) and REVERANCE for Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. One must be IN Christ AND know who he* IS in Christ. God must rule as King in all areas of his* life as THE Authority. This is the first and foremost criteria.
  2. … be a servant leader and know his unique gifting by God for (a) specific purpose(s).
  3. … have at least one area of leadership strength and, while maybe not yet seeing and understanding all of the other counterfeits that have oppressed him, will at least understand how that oppression operates and will be open to seeing the other areas in which he’s been deceived.
  4. … be apt to teach (I Tim. 3:2; II Tim. 2:24), from his Knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding, operating from the authority of God rather than from a counterfeit authority position (man-made licenses, titles, degrees, credentials, positions, etc.).
  5. if schooled and/or credentialed in counterfeit authority (law, religion, medicine, education, etc.), one must have had a “conversion experience” and have left the counterfeit standard behind (Pr. 28:13).
  6. … be kingdom-minded and understanding that the Ecclesia established by our Lord Jesus Christ transcends the boundaries of any sect, denomination, ordination, organization, occupation, gender, race, ethnicity or geographical situs.
  7. … understand that an Ecclesia leader is an ambassador of Jesus Christ; therefore, he must strive always towards the building of the Lord’s kingdom and not his own.
  8. … have character references (a “good report” ~ Acts 10:22; 22:12; Heb. 11:2,39) from both within and without the household of faith, exhibiting the character traits illustrated as for bishops and deacons as expressed in I Timothy 3:1-12 and Titus 1:4-9.
  9. … possess effective knowledge of Ecclesia networks and friendly contacts necessary to align with established financial/project management vehicles for the rapid advancement of the Kingdom.
  10. … have a proven track record of not being corrupted by finances, power (“authority”), and/or narcissistic lusts, nor of being engaged in determined criminal activity.
  11. … be willing to covenant to maintain integrity and confidentiality to insure personal security for effective deployment of internal financial mechanisms.
  12. … be able to demonstrate a proven track record of accountability without compromising truth and holiness or succumbing to the fear of men.
  13. … be a team player, teachable, and possess the cognitive ability to comprehend formatted business plans (and other various components).
  14. …model modest living, meekness (strength under control), and humility (a servant leader).
  15. … possess a basic understanding of global geopolitical, religious and economic issues with a general awareness of extant mechanisms seeking to establish a New World Order as defined by antichrist belief systems.
  16. … be able to identify other men* of integrity, both domestically and internationally, to be used for the same purpose.


If you are, or know of, such a person, please let your interest be known by responding back to this email.

KCTFO Annual Report FAQ’s 2015

Thank you for the submission of this year’s additional line-up of FAQs to add to the list you may have already come across in our community library regarding the following topics:

Important Note: Access to the entire KCT community development library is reserved for active members in the Koinonia Covenant (formerly SECom). A recap of basic onboarding FAQs are also provided for those seeking to be volunteer advisors and those with projects:

New FAQs 2015

In preparing for the 2015 annual report, we wanted to learn more about what you wanted to know about vs. the same ole corporate disclosure document with irrelevant data that few, if any, actually read.

For example, is it really important to know who gave the most last year with what amount? Or, does it really matter what the dollar value of assets under trust management we have access to through KCT? To what degree would you want your information made public as a function of such a disclosure? If past performance is not truly indicative of future results, why would you care about what somebody else has already done? And if so, how does that in any way determine your success and significance adventure ahead.

Nevertheless, after so many years of dispelling the notion of KCT as a “check-writer” vs. our authentic stewardship advisory role to those who do, we were pleased to see questions come back with a theme other than “project finance”. We view this as a positive sign in light of the current economic climate.

This year’s general Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q.1. What can I practically do to share the innovative KCTFO “WeCoSystem” such that it starts to reward family members and society?

Q.2. What do I need to do before I am ready to participate in the sharing of time, talent, treasure?

Q.3. Why is the Executive Summary (the 2-pager so important)? What do I achieve with it?

Q.4. Why is there so much emphasis on my Kingdom Character?

Q.5. What can KCTFO do for me? Where are the limits?

Q.6. Where was it demonstrated in the past?

Q.7. Tell me my potential story with KCTFO? How could it look like?

Still have questions about who we are and what we do around here? Think transparency … what do you really want to know, and why? We look forward to your hearing from you.

Q.1. What can I practically do to share the innovative KCTFO “WeCoSystem” such that it starts to reward family members and society?

A: The “WeCoSystem” document is part of the Strategic Philanthropy Overview series.

We know that Food, Water, Money, Possessions and Eternity were among the most popular essential elements Jesus used to correct and connect with people. We have the same opportunity to do the same today.

Who have you shared the current opportunities with already? Planting comes before the harvest while rewards are a function of how many lives we effectively touch both physical and spiritually. We must be “fishing” as Jesus taught to fish, in peer-to-peer relationships.

Q.2. What do I need to do before I am ready to participate in the sharing of time, talent, treasure?

A: Everyone can start today right where they are with time, talent, and treasure. But, there’s a big difference between busyness and effectiveness. Without our temple, and effective touch, connecting to our neighbors, we must know: 1.) who we are; 2.) where we are; 3.) what we have; and, 4.) where we are going, to be of any value to another. Regardless of what we believe, the way of the Good Samaritan comes to mind.

Q.3. Why is the Executive Summary (the 2-pager so important)? What do I achieve with it?

A: How, do you get someone’s attention to take you seriously? How do you generate far reaching buzz to a very broad audience of stakeholders? If you have a project, the KCT Executive Summary format is designed to put butts in chairs. What we cannot do, however, is make people fall in love with your message.

What makes our process especially unique is how your team (a minimum of three) allows others to connect at a heart level (a.k.a. values-based investing) in order to participate in something bigger than they are, wherever in the world they are, without any hindrances associated with regulated spaces (i.e. finance, securities, banking, crowd-funding, etc.). It is in the realm of the Internet of Things (IoT).

Q.4. Why is there so much emphasis on my Kingdom Character?

A: Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. We are only able to reveal Jesus to others if we re+present Jesus … speaking what He spoke, and doing what He did, through a spiritual encounter, revealing the Love of the Father to those we physically engage.

We are in a collision of kingdoms, and our niche is teaching and revealing the principles of wealth creation and stewardship though invitation … the voluntary demonstration to overcome mankind’s greatest obstacles in accessing the Kingdom (money and possessions). However, without Kingdom “character”, such wealth is temporal, and will eventually pass away (e.g. Babylon). We ask the thought provoking question, “What’s the point, if “it” will not last?”

In summary, Kingdom character is more interested in the Kingdom of God than building their own. It requires not only character, but competence and chemistry so as not to destroy the team. If you are a builder, who would you want on your team… characters, or consumers? How would you know the difference?

Q.5. What can KCTFO do for me? Where are the limits?

A: Apart from our Father in Heaven, we cannot, nor will we, do anything “for” anybody. Nevertheless, our purpose is to advance the Kingdom of God through the renewal of our minds and the faithful application of such revelation according to our redemptive gifts and talents through the power of the Holy Spirit.

What we have, we freely share with anyone, not out of a recipient’s need, but rather out of our spirit of generosity through interdependent relationships we refer to as “Koinonia”. Those that give generously reap more so than those that do not.

Access to such social enterprise is a function of intimate relationship and responsibility. As such, our eternal Kingdom wealth metrics have a tendency to indicate increase, while our dependency on worldly wealth metrics fade away.

Q.6. Where was it demonstrated in the past?

A: History reveals most grossly underestimate the cost of true discipleship. Who then is the prudent investor, the one that with full disclosure chooses another path to walk, or the one that pursues the path only to later change his mind? Success is nice, but we prefer significance … something often measured in the intangible, unseen, and eternity.

Counsel is for safety … not for personal fame, or fortune. In this sense, a primary benefit of a relationship is the guardrail up the mountain you are climbing; or the ARC (Apostolic Resource Center) in the valley before the next assignment.

Our model is Jesus, and as your host, I have stripped off the legal person from the living person (a.k.a. in the world but not of it … legally walking on water). However, it’s what YOU do that defines YOU. I can share and show you seven steps to take in order to learn the Kingdom wealth stewardship blueprint, that if you walk them with me, and in the order prescribed, you will be wealthy at the end of our journey together. But first, we must ascertain if the two can walk together … how is it you define wealth?

Everyone that follows the 10-90 Honor Code of learn one; do one; train one, has the capability of becoming free in a process of three years. The Great Commission awaits those capable of bringing it in. Can you imagine living a life with no bank account, no earned income, no vehicle, or home in your name, yet having all that you need to live the life you are called to live? Jesus did this perfectly. As Kingdom Ambassadors, we give our best to live this lifestyle in the name of Jesus (a.k.a. power of attorney). In so doing, seven key timeless principles are common to such Kingdom living (then and now) and should be always found here:

  1. Jesus-centered consciousness (e.g. seek first the Kingdom …);
  2. Do what Jesus did … make disciples (e.g. learn one, do one, train one);
  3. Lead a life of characterized by humility (a.k.a. selflessness … more about Him than ourselves);
  4. We are known by our love … Obedience to faithfulness and to one another (the Great Commandment);
  5. Supernatural existence, characterized by the Holy Spirit (a POWER at work);
  6. Actively a part of Jesus’ covenantal community of His disciples (where two or three are gathered …); and
  7. Conflict … Truth and light are not welcome in the dark world of our assignment. Sparks will fly, and thus, such a lifestyle requires a radical commitment to fight the good fight to the death (it’s all or nothing in the Kingdom).

Q.7. Tell me my potential story with KCTFO? How could it look like?

A: Your story is your story in the context of the last will and testament of Jesus, whereby we will gladly demonstrate “how to”, and “where to” in order to learn your story within the context of His story. Inheritances after all, only happen when someone dies and leaves you a beneficial heir. Has anyone ever died for you and left you in charge … and under what circumstances?

We see a world of strategic philanthropy and social enterprise where the miracle of what we do in the Kingdom is not what we do with money, but rather what we do without it. We operate with metrics “on earth as it is in heaven” defined only by the fruit of the Spirit … for there is no law against these things.

However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”- 1 Corinthians 2:9

We are a Joshua Generation of pioneers leading others into the Promise of what God has already shown us. God’s redemptive story with the interconnectivity of other Apostolic Resource Centers (ARCs) is about aligning ourselves together for opportunity … the Great Commission

We follow the principles around the Law of the Harvest … our rewards are deferred, sometimes for a long time. But when we plant, we do so with the expectancy of a harvest and the desire to share in that celebration with you … S.D.G. If such lifestyle appeals to you, we invite you to make yourself known.

Q1: How do I get involved?

A: Complete the online application here.

Q2: How do I qualify to be an advisor?

A: We encourage anyone with a professional skill or expertise to volunteer. Every advisory board is made up of a wide range of expertise and professional levels. Advisors are selected when their area of expertise matches the need of a particular company.

Q3: What kind of expertise is needed?

A: Through our current clients, we have learned that the following professions are requested most often: Human Resources, Marketing, Legal, Financial, Procurement Specialists, Operations and Strategic Planning.

In addition, almost ALL other expertise is needed, i.e.: Communications, Insurance, Risk Management, Sales Management, Team Building, Market Research, Market Analysis, Business Planning, Mergers & Acquisitions, Taxes & Regulations, Patents, Copyrights, Software, Payroll, Recruiting & Hiring.

Q4: What will be expected of me?

A: Each Advisor is asked to:

  1. Attend board meetings usually once every few months (2-3 hours each).
  2. Bring a willingness to support an organization to the best of their ability.
  3. Offer advice, and when you can’t, help the Client Organization find an alternative solution or resource.
  4. Be available to your Client Organization for phone or email support (1-3 hours per week) in between meetings.
  5. Communicate with KCTFO any issues that impede your ability to support your Client Organization.

An Advisor orientation is held at the beginning of each Client Organization’s first board meeting to review expectations and guidelines.

Q5: How much of my time does this require?

A: Generally, the amount of time an Advisor puts forth varies. Our general expectation is 1 to 3 hours per week.

Q6: How long do I “serve” on a board?

A: Board assignments are for approximately 12 months. At the end of the term, the Client Organization’s progress is assessed. One of three results occur:

  1. The board can opt to stay together for a few more months, particularly at a time of high growth or strategic change;
  2. A new board is assigned to stimulate further growth; or
  3. The company “graduates” from the program and the board is dissolved. Advisors can then serve on a new board if they chose to do so.

Q7: Can I market my products & services to KCTFO clients?

A: Due to our conflict of interest guidelines, advisors are asked to refrain from soliciting any of the KCTFO Client Organizations. When a Client asks directly ask about your products services, by all means, follow up on that inquiry. However, please notify KCTFO if the contact results in a new business relationship. We simply ask that the Client Organizations not be targeted as potential clients while an Advisor works with a specific Client Organization.

Q8: Will I be taught how to advise? Is there an orientation?

A: Every new board receives and orientation during the first part of their first board meeting. This briefing will allow for a Q & A session as well as provide information on the history and direction of the program. At any time, call the KCTFO office with questions or concerns.

A: Subject to certain thresholds of activity, all companies that apply to KCTFO are eligible for no-cost “counsel”. The KCT Family Office (KCTFO) is a virtual organization, albeit headquartered in Orlando, FL for those calling in, and/or physically around the central Florida area, nevertheless, globally accessible anywhere you have a reliable internet connection.

KCTFO is positioned to assist social enterprise organizations that demonstrate successful humanitarian operations in the marketplace. Prospective organizations are best defined by the development stage that the organization is in (pre-revenue, revenue, or profitability). Our preferred “Client Organizations” are in a unique position of revenue, growing their business to the next level, but not necessarily looking to go public in the traditional sense of the phrase.

The preferred KCTFO Client Organization exceeds $10 Million in assets, revenue in the millions, and/or more than a dozen employees (e.g. faces challenges with viable alternatives to the Affordable Care Act, for example). However, as a function of our humanitarian business development efforts, KCTFO will consider organizations on a case by case basis that have at least 2 years operating experience with $500,000 in annual revenues and/or 5 or more employees regardless of their stage of their development.

Q4: How do I apply?

A: Complete the online application here.

Q5: Is there an application deadline?

A: KCTFO accepts applications from both organizations and volunteers on an ongoing basis. There is no deadline in this regard.

Q6: Now that I have applied, what now?

A: After KCTFO receives your application:

  1. An informal interview is conducted to gather more information about your organization.

  4. Advisors are selected and introduced to you.
  5. Face-to face meetings are held so the company owner can decide if there is a good match.

Once all of the face-to-face meetings are conducted, with usually 3-5 different Advisors, the first Advisory Board Meeting is scheduled.

Q7: How long does it take to get a board started?

A: From application, the time it takes to start the actual board meetings varies from about 2-3 months. The time is spent, in three areas: 1.) finding/recruiting volunteers that match the expertise your company needs, 2.) conducting the face-to-face introductory meetings, and 3.) scheduling a mutually agreed upon time for the first board meeting.

Q8: How long is the board assigned to my company?

A: Generally, board assignments last 12 months. However, each board and organization will be reviewed periodically and may be left in place longer if the group agrees.

Q9: Who is assigned to my board?

A: Your Advisors are selected to bring expertise that your company and/or management does not have. These needs are determined during your initial interview with KCTFO. Your input to the type of people, expertise and working styles is valuable.

Q10: May I select my own Advisors?

A: While KCTFO assigns volunteers for you to interview, you can suggest people whom you feel would want to participate. All Advisors must complete an application and work through the KCTFO program. If you have someone you would like to “recruit”, or “sponsor” KCTFO will guide you how to contact and request their participation.

Q11: What is the mandatory “Client Orientation”?

A: The Client Orientation offers an opportunity to meet other KCTFO Client Organizations while learning about the process. It is an excellent time to ask questions and become familiar with what is expected of you and your organization in preparation to manage board activities.

You Are Invited To Partake in a Wise Social Humanitarian Stewardship Mission

The world’s economic situation is rapidly changing today. The realities of these changes may affect you, your family, the business you own or work, in addition to your assets. Globally, governments and banks (including the United States) are making changes to protect themselves. Recall the 2008 recession, U.S. banks were “bailed-out” via a government approved program of printing money that the individual citizens and small businesses of the U.S. paid for – and are still paying!

As previously demonstrated in Cyprus, and recently in countries of Greece and Poland and now beginning in Italy and Japan, the new vehicle to save governments and banks is called a “bail-in”. This “solution” allows your bank deposits and corporate retirement accounts to be confiscated by the banks – all legal via recently enacted legislation which received little notice or press attention.

Difficult times and enormous needs require real moral character and leadership. Goodness & Mercy Unlimited (G&MU) has a “bail-in” solution to share.


As a multiplier effect to protecting your assets via a deposit into a non-depletion account, G&MU has the opportunity and ability to leverage the funds using its “Seven- Pillar Faith- Based Blue- Ocean Strategy,” providing a pathway for necessary social and humanitarian development.

I Dare You!

Continuation of Dale Collier’s Story

As Dale matured in his faith in the Lord in 2005, he continued to receive and write down what the Holy Spirit revealed to him. Kings Counsel and Trust was to be an ‘Ark of Trust’ – a vehicle for helping those willing to hear, listen and obey God in the coming times of economic shaking.

One day during his quiet time, Dale heard very clearly, almost verbally, “I Dare You.” This startled Dale as he looked around the room expecting to see someone speaking to him. He, after a few moments, continued to pray. He then heard a clear word again, “I Dare You is for the daring few who are headed somewhere.”

Now more aware of a voice definitely speaking to him, Dale responded to the voice, “Lord, what are you saying?” A response came back almost immediately, “You are the salt of the earth; you are the light of the world. Dale, I Dare You, to share with others the fruits of your daring. Catch a passion for helping others, sharing and giving what you have and a richer life will come back to you!”

Dale, “In accepting My dare, you will be one of My few priceless ones. In the eyes of a few priceless ones, the dare will become a renewal of purpose.”

Dale responded, “What, God, are you saying to me today?”

“I dare you to be the healthiest person in the business community. I dare you to fill your body with fresh air, pure water, wholesome food, and daily exercise until your cheeks are rosy, your chest full, and your limbs sturdy. Chase the poisons out of your system. I dare you to BE-come more like me.

I am going to unfold a secret power few know how to use – the power of daring to share which carries tremendous responsibilities. Once you receive it, you can never rest until you have given it to others. You will quickly realize the more you give, you enlarge your capacity to give.

The world is full of unused talents and latent abilities. The reason these talents lie buried is that individuals need courage to dig them up and use them. Everybody can improve, but only a few dare.

Wealth, notoriety, place, and power are no measure of success. The only true measure of success is the relation between what we might have done and what we might have been on the one hand, and the things we have made and the thing we have made of ourselves on the other.

I want you to start a crusade in your life – to dare to be your best. The only reason you are not the person you should be is you don’t dare to be. Once you stop drifting with the crowd and face life courageously, life takes on new significance.

Desire something permanent in life, develop your gifts to the largest possible use – that’s your dare. You have a wealth of possibilities. I don’t define wealth as material things as much as your possibilities to create with me to meet the needs of others. That is real wealth.

Our most valuable possessions are those which can be shared without lessening: those which, when shared, multiply. Our least valuable possessions are those which, when divided, are diminished.

I Dare you to Adventure. Adventure means living to the full. Unless one is committed and enthusiastic (going with God), not just interested, one will not even want to go on a picnic, let alone start on a journey destined to positively affect mankind. When our appetites have an edge, we enjoy our meals. Resistance makes crooked rivers and crooked men. Each fish that battles upstream is worth ten that loaf in lazy pools. The only fish that float down river are dead fish. True, the mass of people prefer the familiar way. Old ways are effortless. Physically or mentally lazy people do not want to adjust themselves.

You will discover, as you pursue this dare with Me, it is a privilege to dare and to give. Your days won’t be humdrum when you lift your head above the crowd.

How to dare, you ask? First, it is necessary to agree that living in adventure changes the whole complexion of life. So many live in fear. I define fear as the emotional response to losing control over something. If you think about it, nothing in this life, or on this planet belongs to you. The universe belongs to Me. You are not even your own. I made you and saved you. Therefore, you have nothing to fear.

And why dare? Because unless you dare, you will not succeed. Many will say, ‘It is all very well for you to say that, but my circumstances are different. It is beyond me to dare.’

Challenge that thought in your mind. Understand it is your deadly enemy. The humdrum life is the one most in need of adventure. You can cure your weakness by vigorous action. Start something! Government, business, education, family, religion, entertainment and media, all are looking for the man or woman who dares to face life, to attack rather than defend.

Be honest with yourself. What do you think of life anyway? What do you think of yourself? Are you satisfied that you are carrying responsibility equal to your capacity? Are you contented to have posterity look at your life so far and say, ‘That is all he or she was capable of?’ Or, are you one of the priceless few, one of those with a restless feeling that someday you are going to climb to your rightful place of leadership? That someday you are going to create something worthy of your best? If this is your attitude then your voyage of discovery is not in vain. You are the volunteer for whom I am looking. Then make that ‘someday’ you have been waiting for, today.

If you dare, then:

I dare you to do things. I dare you to discover your capacities and use them with Me. Why not put a bomb under your capacities? Why not force a crisis? Without some incentives to stir souls to action, most things on earth would not have been accomplished or invented.

If you choose to take this dare, Dale, if you choose to take this adventure with Me, you will discover (take the cover off) the hidden resources within yourself. Those resources I hid for you to find.

There are four primary resources to look for – four sleeping giants: the physical, the mental, the social and the spiritual. Life cannot be complete unless you develop all four sides. Each side that is developed in turn stimulates the other three sides. All for one and one for all – life’s musketeers work together for one common end. A four-fold life. Progress in life is coming out of all four sides of life. The greatest example and model of this life is Jesus, for it is written, ‘And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.’

Life is designed by Me such that individuals must play, work, love and worship to get the most out of life. How dare you have within yourself these four-fold capacities and not use them!

It is important to understand and acknowledge that life is a four-sided affair – that your daring program is going to lead you into physical adventures, mental adventures, social adventures and spiritual adventures. You have a body, a brain, a heart, and a soul – these are your living tools with which to accomplish the purpose which I have designed and given you.

To use these tools is not a task or burden but a golden opportunity. To find new capacities within you is not robbing you of any pleasure. It is bringing new treasure into every waking hour. It is helping you touch life at all angles, absorb strength from all contacts, pour out power on all fronts. The more you pour out, the more you find to pour. The more of life’s treasure you keep to yourself, the less you have yourself. The more you share with others, the more you have yourself. One of life’s great rules is this: the more you give, the more you get.

Dale, I know that if you dare to use the talents you have you will find yourself growing stronger physically, mentally, socially, spiritually and that you can multiply your talents a hundred-fold by sharing their fruits. As you give your life away, behold a richer life comes back to you.

I repeat life’s great principle: Man’s most valuable possessions are those which can be shared without lessening; those which when shared multiply. Man’s least valuable possessions are those which when divided are diminished.

I designed you, Dale, to think in images or pictures. I want to burn this four-square idea into your heart (Proverbs 23:7, Matthew 12:34, Jeremiah 17:9, Proverbs 4:23, Luke 12:34, Luke 6:45) so it will be part of you. No plan is worth the paper it is printed on unless it starts you doing something. There is too much telling in this life and not enough doing. Photograph this, what I’ll call, Magic Square, on your brain. It is a symbol of the richer, fuller life, the emblem you are to follow in your daring adventure with Me.


The content I am giving you, the foundation for Kings Counsel and Trust, is a definite program for the daring few who are determined to tap all of their inner resources. If you, Dale, don’t feel the urge to DARE don’t invest your time and energy to go on. If you lack courage or faith – lean on Me. The content I give you must be shared and given away or it will not help you or others. What I give must be freely shared and given away or it will diminish. If you willingly choose to do and dare, then immediately assume the offensive.

The day of defending one’s present possessions is gone. From now on you are not going to worry about holding a job or how your needs will be met. Put that responsibility on Me – I AM your Source and Supply. Your heart and eyes must be turned toward your strength, not your weaknesses. Hereafter, you will wake in the morning thinking of ways to do things and co-create with Me, rather than reasons why they can’t be done.

Here is your mission going forward, if you so choose:

  • I Dare You to Be Strong
  • I Dare You to Think Creatively
  • I Dare You to Develop a Magnetic Personality
  • I Dare You to Build Character
  • I Dare You to Share

The Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea are made of the same water. The Sea of Galilee flows down, clear and cool, from the Hermon and the roots of the cedars of Lebanon. The Sea of Galilee has an outlet. It receives to give. It gathers in its riches that it may pour them out again to fertilize the Jordan plain. But the Dead Sea, with the same water, is a horror having no outlet. It simply gathers. That is the radical difference between the unselfish and selfish.

We all want life’s enriching blessings; we ought to; they are divine benedictions. Some individuals gain to give, and they are like Galilee; while others keep, becoming the brackish water that covers Sodom and Gomorrah.

I dare you Dale to live life as if everything depended on you and have faith as if everything depended on Me. I dare you to lead others likewise. I dare you to take your place amongst My few who have chosen to dare.

And when you have dared to develop this ability to share with others you have discovered the meaning of an abundant life. Following the principle that one’s most valuable possessions are those which can be shared without lessening. Those which, when shared multiply. Our least valuable possessions are those which, when divided, are diminished. Truly your physical, mental, social and spiritual selves multiply many times over when they are shared.

The more you practice this principle of daring and sharing, the more you find it in every contact of life.

Dale, the miracle of the story of the loaves and fishes is not one of feeding the thousands with but a few loaves and fish, but the attitude that takes account of resources possessed rather than difficulties presented. Measure your powers, not your problems.

Here is a universal law of Mine, resources and powers are given to those who use what resources and powers they have. Through the use of one’s muscles, the muscles grow and harden. Through the use of one’s mind, mental capacity increases; through the use of one’s spiritual powers these powers heighten. We do not wear out the mind with thinking, or the soul with loving and showing mercy. It is within the experience of all of us that through using what we have our abilities and resources are enlarged – don’t count the multitude, count the loaves.

Dale, I don’t ask men for more than they can give, but I do ask for all they can give.

Kingdom Blueprint for Release and Multiplication On Earth as in Heaven

Elijah, a prophet of God to Israel, had the habit of listening for the Lord’s voice and obeying God’s commands even though they did not always make human sense or were easy.

In approximately 870 BC there was a drought and famine in Israel and God commanded (commanded meaning in the original language – to make proper arrangements for provision) Elijah to go to a brook to reside during the drought. Here God took care of Elijah by supplying him with water from the brook, and having ravens bring him food. (God provides when we obey.) After a while the brook dried up, God commanded (God made proper arrangements for provision, though Elijah did not know it at the time) Elijah to go to a town and a specific woman there would feed him. There he found the woman, but due to the drought, she was cooking her and her son’s last meal. She had a little oil and flour, and would then die of starvation.

Elijah discerns that fear is gripping the woman and the poverty spirit is restricting the provisions of God for the woman and her son. The fear of not getting was causing the widow to hold on tightly to what she had. Elijah knew that she would have to step out in faith in order to shatter the poverty spirit and her fears to allow the provisions of God to flow. The tighter the woman gripped what little she had, the tighter poverty gripped her.

Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid! Go ahead and cook that last meal, but bake me a little loaf of bread first, and afterwards there will be enough food for you and your son. For the Lord God of Israel says that there will always be plenty of flour and oil left in your containers until the time when the Lords sends rain and the crops grow again.”  The woman did as Elijah instructed and she and her son continued to eat from her supply of flour and oil as long as it was needed. No matter how much they used, there was always plenty left in the containers, just as the Lord had promised through Elijah.

One day the boy, Simon, became sick and died. The mother turned to Elijah and blamed him for his death. Elijah took the boy and prayed to God to bring the boy back to life. The Lord answered Elijah’s prayer and restored the boy’s life. The mother was overjoyed and said to Elijah, “I see it all now, you are a holy man. When you speak, God speaks.”

Long after Elijah left their home Simon continued to review and replay in his mind the stories Elijah told him of his life experiences and those of their ancestors. Simon applied to his life those principles he learned from Elijah. As he grew to become a man, the practical demonstrations of obedience to God and faith in God he heard and witnessed from Elijah held him in good stead with both God and his fellow man.

Little did Simon realize or know the impact of those practical demonstrations and lessons from Elijah would have during his life and the lineage that would come from him and positively affect the world.  But God knew!

Those valuable lessons Simon applied to his personal life and shared with his family and friends to help them in their lives as well were:

·      To release God’s provision and break the spirit of poverty and fear one must let go of what is in their hand (Prov. 1:24-25).

·      As we let go of what is in our hand, in faith, God lets go of His provision (what is in His hand).

·      The poverty spirit is broken by responding in the opposite manner – let go of rather than grip tighter.

·      God’s ways are far different and varied than man’s ways.

·      Prayer, listening to God, and obedience as He directs is the only way to succeed in life.

·      Trust in God, not in one’s provision. Allow God to BE your SOURCE of provision.

·      Channels or streams of provision change, the SOURCE (God) will always remain the same.

·      One must remain in relationship with God to know where one’s streams, channels or places of provision are from.

·      God does not promise us money but provision for our needs.

Approximately 900 years later one of Simon’s direct descendants, also named Simon, while out gathering sticks for a fire so his mother could cook the meals for the day, was caught up in a vast multitude of people following and listening to a man heal the sick and teach. He decided to follow the crowd to see and hear what all the commotion and interest was about.

He, along with his father and mother and brothers and sisters, had heard people teach before, but Simon had never heard and witnessed anyone like this man, whom the crowd called Jesus. Jesus’ words were different. He spoke with a different authority and clarity as well as kindness than Simon had never heard before. Jesus’ words were good news because they offered hope, freedom, peace of heart and eternal life with God. Jesus was also healing the sick and lame by the hundreds, something he had never heard or seen anyone doing. Simon sensed that this man, Jesus, had a different spirit about him than other “teachers”.

Simon knew he was disobeying his mother’s instructions, but he decided to follow the crowd and hear more of what Jesus had to say and witness what would happen first hand so he could tell his parents and siblings.

Simon heard Jesus talk about: the Kingdom of Heaven, something he had never heard of before, obeying God was the key to the Kingdom of Heaven, loving your neighbor as yourself, anger was as bad as murdering someone, love your enemies, judge or criticize not, do for others what you want them to do for you, and give and share with others for as you give, you will receive. The things Jesus taught were far different than he had heard of before.

What really interested and caught Simon’s attention was what Jesus said about money, treasures, masters and something called mammon. Jesus said not to worry about food, drink or clothes. Simon was always hearing his mother and father argue about these things and not having enough and where the money would come from to pay for all that was needed for the family. It seemed like that was all his parents would talk about. Yet this teacher the crowd was following, Jesus, said not to worry about these things. Jesus compared man to birds saying that God took care of them; and we as people, were more important to Him than the birds. Thus we should trust God as He would make sure we had these things.

Simon had never heard this type of talk, yet something about the way and what Jesus said rang true with him. Jesus said to make God your master, and not riches, wealth or money, because man could not serve two masters. What really caught Simon’s attention is when Jesus said, “Seek you first the Kingdom of God, and all these things would be provided to you by Me.” What a contrasting way to live than he had witnessed in his short life, Simon thought. As he ran home, he reviewed in his mind those things he heard Jesus say to tell his parents, brothers, and sisters.

Simon was really excited to share with his family what he heard Jesus teach and did while he followed him. To his surprise, his family was very receptive to what he relayed that Jesus said. They all decided that they would make the extra effort to go and listen to Him teach. Simon’s father mentioned he remembered stories being told when he was a little boy of a coming Messiah – the Son of God – who would restore God’s Kingdom on earth. His father said this Jesus couldn’t be this Messiah because it didn’t sound like Jesus was the type of individual, as described by Simon, who would overthrow the Roman Empire, but he still was very interested in hearing him teach.

The more Simon talked about the many and different things Jesus taught, Simon’s father recalled hearing stories passed down by his ancestors of another Simon. His father’s ancestor, Simon, spoke of some of the same things Jesus talked about regarding money, provision, trusting God, using what was in your hand and sharing and how trusting, obeying God and using what one already had seemed to multiply. Almost like it would never run out or there was an endless supply. Simon’s father was then able to remember and share with the family some of those past stories, especially about how a prophet of God, Elijah, showed up one day to save Simon and his mother from starvation by trusting God and using what they had in their hand, and how Elijah brought Simon back to life after dying by praying to God.

Not long after Simon heard Jesus teach that first time, while out gathering food for his mother, he heard Jesus again. This time his mother sent him out to trade with others some of the things she had made with her own hands for bread, and to catch some fish for supper for the family. As he was returning home with five loaves of bread he received by trading his mother handiwork and catching two fish, he saw large crowds of people, and knew they had to be following Jesus. He decided again to make the time to listen to Jesus as what He talked about really resonated with him.

When it was late in the day, Jesus’ disciples went through the crowd of people seeing if anyone had food to share with the others in the crowd. There must have been about 20,000 men, women and children all on the hill listening to Jesus teach and heal people of their illnesses. Simon thought to himself, how in the world can they feed this huge crowd. Jesus must have thought that since no one was going home and it was almost supper time he better do something. Simon heard Jesus say to the disciples when they approached Him about feeding the crowd, “You feed them.” The disciples countered with, “There is only five loaves and two fish here, we have no money, are you expecting us to go and buy enough food for all these people?” Simon knew if he surrendered his five loaves and two fish his family wouldn’t have any food to eat that night.

Simon then recalled the stories his father told the family about his ancestor Simon and the prophet Elijah about giving, sharing and trusting God for the provision and how God seemed to always multiply what one had when you gave to others what you had. Simon decided to test God. He surrendered his basket of food, trusting God to work a miracle or he would be in big trouble with his family, especially his mother as he would have disobeyed her again.

As the disciples brought Simon to Jesus, he handed his small basket of food to Jesus. Simon had never been this close to Jesus, and he could feel something different about this man many were calling the Messiah, the Son of God. Simon watched Jesus take the food out of the basket and hold it up to heaven and ask God to bless the food as well as all the people stretched out before Him waiting on the hill to eat as it had been a long day in the sun without food for all of the crowd.

Simon eagerly watched as the disciples gave the food to the crowd, tearing off pieces of bread and fish handing it to each person. There seemed to be an endless supply of bread and fish, never running out. When the disciples finished handing out the food, they went back through the crowd and picked up what was left over and not eaten. To Simon’s amazement there were twelve baskets of food leftover which they gave to him to take home for his family. That was enough food for two weeks for Simon’s family. Simon’s mother would be surprised. She sent him out hoping to bring back enough to feed the family supper that night and hoped no one would go to bed hungry. Now he would come home with two weeks of food. Simon was really looking forward to sharing this story and this miracle of multiplication with his family.

As Simon was walking home thinking about the miraculous events of the day, he began to see the connection between the stories his father told of his distant ancestor Simon and the prophet Elijah, and what he heard Jesus teach and demonstrate today. Simon realized that it doesn’t take money for God to provide. He believed what he personally experienced Jesus do today was not a miracle but something that can be replicated by man. Repetition of this event or something like it meant that man, as Jesus was, be in alignment with God, use what was already in one’s hand, share willingly and give to others; trust God, not the provision; bless what is in one’s hand and others; ask God to bless what was being offered and given, and be thankful for what would come in order for the provision and multiplication to FLOW (following God’s laws of wealth).

Over the next two years Simon took advantage of the opportunities when Jesus was in the neighborhood to listen to Him teach. Many and varied were the things Jesus taught, mostly using parables to illustrate truths to live as God wanted mankind to live in order to bring forth God’s Kingdom to earth. Some of the principles Simon heard Jesus teach, that he hid in his heart, and incorporated in his living were:

·      To enjoy the Kingdom of God one must accept and come to intimately know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

·      God owns everything, even though we act like it is ours – it is really all His.

·      We must be willing not only to count the cost of living rightly, we must be willing to pay the price of doing so at the expense of going against what others say and do.

·      To accept new teaching one must first become new themselves – one cannot put new wine in old wineskins.

·      To live rightly one must build their life on the solid foundation of God’s truths and not on the world’s foundation of greed, lies, self-promotion and self-interest.

·      To really succeed in this life, from God’s perspective, our individual hearts must be good soil (right with God) and we must plant what seeds we have in good soil for the best return or fruit from our sowing.

·      To fully follow Jesus, one must die daily to one’s own needs and focus on being like Jesus.

·      Jesus has given His children His authority over the enemy; therefore, we must use that authority as the enemy seeks to steal, kill and destroy our destiny in Christ.

·      We must live in the context of God’s laws summed up by the Law of Love – first love the Lord with all your heart, soul and mind; and second, your neighbor as yourself.

·      God has given His children His Kingdom; it is within each of His children, it pleases Him to give us His Kingdom, therefore, give to and share with those in need, the Father has plenty for us all, our reward comes from Him and not man.

·      Where your treasure in life is, there is where your heart and thoughts are also.

·      To whom much is given, much is required;

·      God calls us to be faithful and fruitful stewards of what He provides for us to look after and multiply.

·      God’s math is different than that of man’s; God’s math is in whole numbers, man’s is in fractions.

·      If one is untrustworthy with worldly wealth, why would God trust you with the true riches of heaven.

·      God’s Kingdom is a relational one; life is all about His Kingdom, not ours; and one’s deepest needs and desires are met relationally by Him, not through others – thus seek Him first.

When Simon reached the age of 18 he could go outside the home to work. He was fortunate to obtain a position with a large estate owned by a very rich master/owner. While he was working at the estate, Simon was able to honor and obey God and the master/owner by applying what he had learned from the stories shared by his father about his ancestors and Elijah, as well what he learned from listening to Jesus.

One day the owner gathered together his ten best servants, one of which was Simon, to inform them of his going away for a while, and that the servants would be in charge of managing his estate while he was out of the country. The owner gave each of the ten servants a sum of money to invest and go and do business with on behalf of the owner. Upon the owner’s return he would demand an accounting of what each servant had reaped with the money he had sown into each of the servants.

Upon the owner’s return he found that seven of the ten servants had spent all of the money, returning nothing to the owner, one servant had buried the money, taking no risk, making sure to return to the owner what he had been given originally. The remaining two servants, Simon included, had carefully and faithfully invested the money with one returning five times what had been given him, with Simon returned to the owner ten times what was given to him.

When asked by the owner how Simon had been able to return ten times what had been given to him, Simon replied that he had applied what he had learned from stories passed down by his ancestors and from what he personally witnessed by Jesus that showed him how God’s Kingdom operated. Simon shared with the owner that multiplication could be obtained through trust and obedience to God, sharing and giving of what one had in his hand, asking for God’s guidance and blessing on what he did with the money, resources and the rest of his possessions, acknowledging God as the Source of his provision and trusting in God’s faithfulness and promises.

After hearing what Simon had to say, the owner took what had been buried by the one servant and gave it to Simon as a reward and said to Simon, “Since you have been faithful and fruitful with a little, I am giving you more to manage as a reward and a sign of my trust in you, as you have proved yourself trustworthy.”

As Simon grew older, married and had his own family, he continued what his father had done with his family – telling stories of the past to teach and educate his own children as well as his nieces and nephews about God’s Kingdom principles.

Simon learned through the stories of his ancestors, his own personal experiences with Jesus, and in his experiences in the marketplace of God’s “heavenly mathematics”. It seemed to Simon that this principle of God’s Kingdom was one of the hardest for people to accept and apply by faith. He experienced that human reckoning bases everything upon profit. But in “heavenly mathematics” the principle is exactly reversed: “Give and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over they will pour into your lap. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return” (Luke 6:38). The laws of “heavenly mathematics” are safer than all human arithmetic, and are eternally valid, Simon learned. This means that he who enters upon the pathway of giving, as Jesus says, will receive all things in abundance. The necessary resources do not come according to ordinary human planning – for instance through good promotion or fund-raising letters. It comes by reckoning upon God, whose power and authority extends also over money. For God says, “The silver is mine, and the gold is mine” (Haggai 2:8).

As Simon learned God’s ways of Kingdom finance and multiplication, he became very intentional in applying those principles himself in his own experiences as he grew in age and was able to witness the fruit of that application by gaining in wealth. Simon learned early in his life that the wealth created or gained was not just to be held by himself and his family, but was meant by God to be shared with others. Simon was very intentional in sharing both the principles and wealth with many others to bless others as he had been blessed and to further God’s Kingdom on earth.

Simon learned through his personal experiences that all of mankind is called to stay connected in community and respond in faith to God’s commands and leading, and when one looks back they will see that “God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as He wanted them to be” (1 Corinthians 12:19). Relational living, Simon learned, was another aspect of God’s Kingdom philosophy and culture He wanted transplanted on the earth. It seemed hard for mankind to accept and apply these principles. God’s plan was that man would no longer see themselves as independent, isolated silos of self-will, but uniquely gifted, interdependent parts of His Body. Simon’s personal experience was that God made all of mankind unique, and He wants to coordinate the collective passions, experiences and gifts to meet needs together and accomplish God’s Plan – the earth as a physical model of His heavenly Kingdom (on earth as it is in heaven).

Simon’s great hope, passion and prayer was for a legacy that generations to come that would continue to share and apply what he learned and experienced of God’s principles.

Fast forward to today, in the 21st century, God still has a Body and a Desire; “Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others” (Romans 2:4-5). God’s plan is that of a responsive, connected community that He can live in and to tangibly show the world what He is like. God, through you and me together as we respond to the Spirit of Jesus (who is the head) desires that we together demonstrate His loving, redemptive, restorative Kingdom ways to our world, working together as one Body. God seems to be saying, “Today, as in past days, I’ll reach out with your hands.”

In 2005, God reached out through Simon’s bloodline to pass on the stories and experiences learned and applied from Elijah and during the times of Jesus to continue to illustrate His Kingdom economics and “heavenly mathematics” through Dale Hewett Collier. Dale came to know the Lord and through heavenly visions and downloads, the Holy Spirit revealed to Dale ways to do business on earth as it is in heaven through strategic philanthropy and a social enterprise community called ‘Kings Counsel & Trust’. This community was to be one of the many ways God would reveal to mankind His objective of actively applying His ways to do business on earth as it is in heaven through the principles of:

·      God owns all things on the earth, “the earth is the Lord’s and all therein”.

·      Community.

·      Unity in the community based on the common loyalty to Jesus Christ.

·      Godly counsel that is Holy Spirit led and inspired.

·      Trust in God first and foremost, then in and through man in relationship.

·      Sharing what one has been given with others of their time, talent, treasure, temple (body) and touch (relationships).

·      Application of the Kingdom economic principles of giving and receiving, and not via the world’s way of buying and selling.

·      Interdependence rather than independence.

·      Knowing one’s design and identity in Christ to best activate and fulfill one’s God given vision and passion.

·      Work and live daily in the context of the Great Commandment – love of God first and man second.

The Holy Spirit said to Dale in 2005, “God’s desire, plan and intention is to make the kingdoms of this world His Kingdoms, and He is needing your help. I will give you a blueprint for doing business and finance on earth as it is done in heaven. This blueprint contains the instructions for creating a community that will be an ARK in the coming season. An Ark of Trust – trust in God first and foremost. Trust in God’s leading to do business in His ways and means to bring honor and glory to God and cultivate and establish trust between those who choose to enter the ARK. This Ark, Kings Counsel and Trust, will be much like the Ark Noah was instructed to build. This modern day Ark will protect those of the family of God from the coming shaking of the economic systems of this world. Like in Noah’s time, many will take a look, many will scoff, some will be interested, but few will be committed and choose God’s ways and enter the Ark.

“Dale”, said the Holy Spirit, “I will share with you God’s principles learned and applied by your ancestral line to practically demonstrate how others today can learn God’s principles, apply those principles to earn wealth and how to return to others what they earned to continue the flow of God’s resources on earth to set others free from debt and slavery.

“Dale, this process or operating system for My people to follow (learn, earn and return) is exactly like what I have demonstrated in My business – the Earth. It is a process of transformation and one practical demonstration is by the cocooning process, seeing a caterpillar transformed into a beautiful butterfly that through the imaginal cell process learns to fly (soar) in life and no longer crawls. Life as I designed it is a ‘state’ of BE-ing. I have given my code, the laws and principles of My Kingdom to My people. I want My people to understand and know how My Kingdom works so they can stay in alignment with Me.


“Dale, I want you to share with others how to give, share and multiply My resources on earth like Jesus demonstrated to people 2,000 years ago with the feeding of the 20,000. People know the verse in John 14:12, ‘And greater works than this shall you do and more’, but they do not know and realize how easy it is to do what I did, and do even more with the power of the Holy Spirit in them. I was able to multiply those five loaves and two fish simply by remaining in a pure, right relationship with My Father, receiving what was placed in my hand from Simon, the little boy, by faith blessing the food and presenting it to God for his blessing and multiplication and acting in faith to give it to those in need. I was able to do this by staying in the vibrational level at what I call ‘love and above’. Living in the context of unconditional love or ‘state’ is the key to producing supernatural fruit or results. BE-ing and living in the state of ‘love and above’ allows one to break all natural barriers and operate in the super-natural. Illustrated by the chart one can see the various ‘states’ available to man to live in or at. God designed man in His image, thus to live daily and moment by moment at ‘love and above.’ BE-ing in My ‘operating system’ enables one to multiply. As you stay at ‘love and above’ you will operate fully in Me and I in you.


“Dale, people cannot operate at ‘love and above’ without knowing and understanding their true God-given identity. Those who are committed to My cause – on earth as it is in heaven – need help in fully discovering who they truly are and how they fit together in community with others in the Kings Counsel community and into the greater community (both humans and all of nature) to best operate in a fully functioning eco-system or we-co-system as I like to call it.

“Dale, the following multiplication formula helps explain also why so many of My people are not able to multiply as Jesus did:

Faith × Works ÷ Distractions + Attachments = Multiplication

Key to God’s math – when our faith times works produces a whole number or is greater than the distractions and attachments in our life, God can use us. His math is in whole numbers, man’s math is fractions.

Works – also known as fruit or results of one’s time, talent, treasure, temple, touch (relationships) (T5)

Distractions – the flesh, self-life, natural man, the world, soulish issues, satanic temptations

Attachments – physical symbols of wealth (cars, clothes, homes, bank notes, stocks, bonds, investments) worldly possessions

Multiplication – Increase

Man has a tendency to settle, squat or become comfortable at their weakest point and stop moving into one’s true God-given, designed purpose. Man often settles at one’s greatest emotional weakness (fear, insecurity, rejection, unbelief, grief, acceptance, achievement, not good enough, not smart enough, etc.).

“Dale, the following diagram outlines what I want you to set up and establish for Kings Counsel & Trust to help those committed to My cause and BE a witness to the world as to My operating system:


“Dale, I have designed and called you to be a guide, a way-shower, a carrier of My fire of love and principles to others. All people are designed by Me to be a part and involved in My business franchise called Earth. This diagram depicts your role as a guide and your responsibility to call to action those who choose to willingly commit themselves to Me to BE-come sons and daughters of Mine.”


BE-ing a Strategic Philanthropist

by: Thomas Richter

We believe God has instructed us all to BE strategic philanthropists (Luke 6:38 and 2 Corinthians 9: 6-15). What does it mean to BE one?

Many might say philanthropy is reserved for the famous, saturated with earthly riches. But more importantly, what does it look like from God’s perspective? We read Jesus prayed “… on earth as it is in heaven.” What then is “strategic” about philanthropy? Is it really available to those unknown by the world? Yes it is.

A strategic philanthropist is one who purposely directs efforts (theirs or others) to provide, or create, a greater impact in advancing someone’s kingdom values, principles and objectives. A kingdom philanthropist sees exponential returns. Whose kingdom do you support?

BE-ing one is not about being wealthy.  It’s about searching your heart and seeing what you have in “your hand” of time, talent, treasure, temple, and touch (relationships) that you willing share with others in their service.

Begin by seeing with the eyes of your heart, “all” you have to steward; time, talent, temple, touch (relationships) as well as treasure. For those whose heart breaks for the hungry, KCTFO acting as a  kingdom philanthropist, invites you to support the economically underserved rice farmers in South East Asia, who in turn support the transitional needs in addition to the highlighted recent explosion of global immigration.   Please take a moment to answer to the following three questions … Who, What, and Why:

1. Who do you know that requires large volumes of rice? (e.g. large volume feeding ministries, procurement directors, NGO’s  etc.)

2. What is the annual budget and/or how many mouths do they feed annually?

3. Why make an introduction on behalf of Elijah’s List?

Example: One food ministry serves 229,000,000 meals annually in fifty countries with a current per meal cost of twenty-two cents. A two cent saving per meal would increase total meals served by >50,000,000 given one pound of raw rice yields eleven cooked cups which serves twelve people. Where else can you give so little to accomplish so much?

To the degree you are able to add value (new relationship) to an existing social benefit organization; we would like to honor you  with a reward, a tithe of thanksgiving to you and/or your assigned beneficial organization of choice. You just may be the next person who gave their loaves and fish that feed the multitudes with plenty left over (Luke 9:16). Who do you know? What do they require? Why not serve? Make the introduction today!  

Please contact to complete your introduction, and congratulations, you are BE-ing a strategic philanthropist.
