Brief Description

image3

The Revolution Movement is a lifestyle movement of uncompromising disciples of Jesus Christ who want to become just like Jesus in their life’s purpose!


These burning ones burn with the zeal of God as they pursue Him and His purpose for their lives!


The original disciples of Jesus were radical revolutionaries who turned their world upside down to the degree that the movement called The Way grew from 12 to over 1,000,000 throughout the Roman Empire before the first century closed out.


Those original world changers were not advancing “church” although they established churches in the regions they were sent. Rather, they advanced the kingdom of heaven and the cause of Christ through kingdom training centers which were designed to bring the kingdoms of this world into submission to His eternal kingdom. Heaven is still focused on that main mandate!


Too many of God’s people live their life pursuing the things they think they need instead of pursuing the life God gave them life to live. In living that way whatever satisfaction they obtain in temporary and unfulfilling.

Dr. Kevin and Donna Drury are stewards of the movement called The Way that Jesus the Christ started 2000 years ago. As stewards, Kevin and Donna are committed to share their lives with those who are committed to their commitment to Christ Jesus, as well as to the movement He started. 


Kevin and Donna live their lives pouring their lives out for and into people God has brought into their life, regardless if they ever attended the churches they served. That has been true both in their home life and public ministry life.  Mentoring, discipling and fathering people to the Lord Jesus Christ for the sole purpose of raising sons and daughters of God into fathers and mothers in the kingdom of God is a small portion of their life purpose. That is who they are!


Kevin and Donna believe Jesus wants to employ them by deploying them to influence the influencers in families, businesses, churches, cities and nations to strengthen the Body of Christ in every place they are sent.


The original disciples of Jesus were radical revolutionaries who turned their world upside down to the degree that the movement called The Way grew from 12 to over 1,000,000 throughout the Roman Empire before the first century closed out.


Those original world changers were not advancing “church” although they established churches in the regions they were sent. Rather, they advanced the kingdom of heaven and the cause of Christ through kingdom training centers which were designed to bring the kingdoms of this world into submission to His eternal kingdom. Heaven is still focused on that main mandate!


Organized Christianity departed from the Christ centered mission of advancing the kingdom of heaven by institutionalizing the traditions of man which nullifies God’s Word, rule, will and ways!


Jesus said, “Seek first [as your top priority] the [advancement of] God’s kingdom [the place and purpose of His divine rule, will and plan], and His righteousness [living in right relationship with Him by living the life He gave you life to live], and all these things [you need to live the live God gave you to live] will be added to you.” [Matthew 6:33]


In fact, “Seek as the top priority of your life” has been reduced in our day by compromised church leaders who create church cultures where serious followers of Christ are sidelined so that seeker sensitive, pseudo, shallow and superficial people can be elevated in the culture so no one’s feelings can be hurt. These church cultures are amassing large followings of people but most of the people are not being fed spiritual food that fuels their maturity in Christ and responsibilities as Biblical Christians.


There is truly a “famine for hearing the words of the Lord” in our day [Amos 8:11]!


Too many of God’s people live their life pursuing the things they think they need instead of pursuing the life God gave them life to live. In living that way whatever satisfaction they obtain is temporary and unfulfilling.


Paul told his spiritual son Timothy, “Lay hold of eternal life.” That has been interpreted to hang on until Jesus returns or you die and hope to make into heaven. I believe Paul meant, “Grasp  why Jesus gave you life and your born again life and never let go of it.”


“How can I earn a living if I do that” is the mindset of a soul stricken with the seducing spirit of mammon.


“How can I not passionately pursue my divine purpose on purpose” is the core value of a person committed to Christ regardless of the cost they incur in pursuing His purpose for their life.


Jesus said the satisfied life is only found in staying hungry and thirsty for Him, His Word, rule, will and ways. “Blessed are those who do hunger and thirst for righteousness, for only they shall be truly satisfied.” Matthew 5:6


Kevin and Donna have always lived on the cutting edge of complete obedience to the direction, leading and instructions they have received from Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior. Status quo, shallow and superficial is not part of their vocabulary. In fact, Kevin and Donna refuse to live life in those places or with people who choose to live there.


Que sera sera Christianity is not Biblical Christianity. “What ever will be, will be” bows before Kevin and Donna as they pioneer into new geographical, revelational and relational territories - first vertically in their relationship with Christ Jesus and then horizontally with those who choose to live the life they have chosen and are completely committed to live! That is the spiritual revolution they are called to lead.


MISSION


To forcefully apprehend the kingdom of God and courageously advance it into all the world, regardless of personal cost!


Matthew 11:12


“The kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force.”


This “violence” is spiritual, not physical. Jesus made that abundantly clear to Pilate and to His disciples.


John 18:36


“Jesus answered [Pilate], ‘My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.’”


Jesus revealed in this moment His kingdom was indeed already in the earth and advancing, it just was not of this world so it would not advance in the way the world’s kingdoms advance.


Luke 22:48-51


“49 When those who were around Him saw what was going to happen, they said, ‘Lord, shall we strike with the sword?’ 50 And one of them struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his right ear. 51 But Jesus answered and said, ‘Stop! No more of this.’ And He touched his ear and healed him.”


Paul the apostle affirms this truth.


Ephesians 6:10-12


“10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle [warfare] is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places."


VISION


Christ Jesus, and Becoming Just Like Him! 


Hebrews 12:2


“Fix your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of faith!”


Faith means complete trust in and fidelity to!


Romans 8:29


“For those whom God foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son.”


Predestination has to do with being conformed to Christ’s image after being saved, not coming to Christ for salvation!


Ephesians 4:13


“We are all to attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.”


Each believer in Christ [‘We’] are to reach the maturity level and stature of Christ [‘a mature man’].


Colossians 1:10


“In Him you have been made complete.”


Those who are in Christ are already complete. The process proving it has not yet been completed!


DNA


Dying to self daily in order to walk in the Spirit daily!


Jesus said we must pick up our cross every day and follow Him. That level of commitment requires us to set aside everything we want in our life and seek Him and what He wants for our life.


In 600 BC the word lógos was first introduced into the earth and when it was it meant: The revealed divine plan.


Jesus is known as the lógos who was with God and who is God! Jesus is the perfect manifestation of God’s divine plan and He said, “I am the Way!” “I am the Truth!” “I am the Life!”


Jesus modeled what this “Way, Truth and Life” is like in many ways, but Paul explained it this way:


Philippians 2:5-8


“5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. 8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.”


Jesus was God but He lived life as a human fully dependent on God which required Him to empty Himself and humble Himself. Jesus dealt with “self” so that the Spirit of God could fully function in and through His life. In other words, Jesus lived a ‘dying to self’ lifestyle so that He could fully accomplish everything the Father assigned Him to do while He was on the earth as a human being.


Paul also said this of himself, “I affirm, brethren, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.” [1 Corinthians 15:31]


'Saving' Grace and 'I Am' Grace!


Few people understand there are multiple applications of God’s grace that He bestows on people. For the purpose of the Revolution Movement we will elaborate some on ‘saving’ grace and ‘I am’ grace.


‘Saving’ Grace!


Paul writes in Ephesians 2:8,9, “8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.”


Paul is revealing that God provides grace [His ability, enablement] and faith [trust in and fidelity to Him] to people so they can be saved [be connected spiritually to Him and made whole in Him] so no one can boast about how great they are or how they did the necessary work to be saved.


Saving grace is the beginning level of grace that activates a person into the family of God and a life of faithfulness to God.


‘I Am’ Grace!


God is so confident in His identity He calls Himself ‘I Am.’ Jesus called Himself ‘I Am’ eleven times at least in the gospels. We must get to the point in our identification with and in Him that we are able to confidently say who we are [‘I am’].


Paul was able to articulate ‘I am’ when he wrote, “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain; but I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me.” [1 Corinthians 15:10]


The context of Paul’s confidence is his acceptance into the beloved [be-loved], and his ministry function call as an apostle commissioned directly by Jesus to preach the gospel of the life, death, burial, resurrection, ascension and return of Jesus.


‘I am’ grace is God’s ability [enablement] to become everything He calls a person to be, and to do everything He calls them to do! This is the continuing working of God’s grace in the life of His children who pay every price [by His grace] to find and fulfill their God given purpose in life.


Additionally, God’s grace working through us enables us to work [labor] more than others who do not have His grace or who do not apply His grace appropriately.


It is possible to receive God's grace in vain. "And working together with Him, we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain." [2 Corinthians 6:1]


It is sad to work with someone who received God's grace and never allowed God nor His grace to work in them what He wanted to work out of them so He could work through them.


POLICY AND PROCEDURES


Uphold Christ’s Standards


Keep Christ As Our Priority


Matthew 10:37,38


 “37 He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38 And he who does not take his cross [his life’s purpose] and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.”


Jesus must always be our priority in all we do!


Sin Is Not Acceptable To God


John 5:14


“Behold, you have become well; do not sin anymore, so that nothing worse happens to you.”


John 8:10,11


“10 Jesus said to her, ‘Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?’ 11 She said, ‘No one, Lord .’ And Jesus said, ‘I do not condemn you, either. Go. From now on sin no more.’”


1 John 2:1


“My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.”


Sin is not permissible for God’s children and can result in more damage than before we were saved [forgiven, healed and delivered]!


In 1 John, John writes that little children [teknon maturity level] know sin is not permissible. He then reveals a stunning revelation to some Christians. That revelation is sin is not a given, meaning it should be the exception, not the rule. “And IF anyone sins . . .” ‘If’ not ‘when’ is the normal lifestyle of a child of God at the 4th level of maturity in the childhood stage.


1 Corinthians 15:34


“Become sober-minded as you ought, and stop sinning; for some have no knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.”


Yes There Are Rules And Standards


2 Timothy 2:5


“If anyone competes as an athlete, he does not win the prize unless he competes according to the rules.”


Disqualification from this discipleship program is possible! Disqualification does not denote disqualification from being a child of God!


Philippians 3:16


“Let us keep living by that same standard to which we have attained.”


Once we have learned something what we have learned becomes the standard God holds us to!


Hebrews 2:1-4


“1 For this reason we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it. 2 For if the word spoken through angels proved unalterable, and every transgression and disobedience received a just penalty, 3 how will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? After it was at the first spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us by those who heard, 4 God also testifying with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will.”


Staying connected and committed to Christ and the commitments we make to Him are vital to our staying in right relationship with God and this discipleship program!


In this text we see three generations tasked with responsibility to live faithfully to God. 1] Jesus, the Author of the movement called The Way in the first century and is now known as Christianity. 2] Those who heard Him, and 3] those who heard from those who knew, followed and learned from Jesus personally.


Contending For Christ’s Culture


Jude 1:3


“Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.”


The faith Jesus is the Author of is always under assault so we must stay faithful to His faith!Again there are three generations revealed in this verse. 1] Jesus, who is inferred and who first handed ‘the faith’ up to Jude and the other original disciples. 2] Jude, who was Jesus’ half brother and not one of the original 12 disciples. 3] Those Jude is writing to exhorting them to faithfully follow Christ and discharge their duties as followers of Christ Jesus, which also includes each generation of disciples of Christ Jesus after “those’ Jude wrote to encourage them in their faith and to uphold Christ’s standard of faith.


Curriculum


Dr. Kevin M. Drury is an author of two self-published Books [Welcome to the Wilderness and Leaving the Land of Your Limitations] and several Workbooks [Foundations of Our Faith, Apostolic First Responders, Stairway to Heaven Leadership Training] which will be used to train born again Christians in the Biblical and Christlike lifestyle of purity and power. 


The Bible will be the foundation for the truths used in all aspects of the Revolution Movement training. As other materials are written and published by authorized authors they too will be integrated into the discipleship program.

Kingdom Core Values


  • The Holy Bible, in its original, inspired, written form, including both the Old and New Covenants, is the only God-breathed and inspired literary work. The Holy Bible is the only source whereby all mankind can discover the will of God for their lives and be reconciled to Him through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Also, we believe that the Holy Bible is the final authority for which God has commanded His Church to be built. In the Old Covenant, He commanded both Moses and David to build according to the “pattern” or blueprint that He gave to them. In the New Covenant the Lord Jesus said that He would build His Church and the gates of hell would not prevail against it. [Exodus 25:9, 40; Exodus 26:30; Numbers 8:4, 1 Chronicles 28:11,12,19; Matthew 16:18; Acts 7:44; 2 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12; Hebrews 8:5; 1 Peter 1:23-25; 2 Peter 1:19-21; and others]


  • There is One God and He reveals Himself in three Persons. They are the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. [Genesis 1:1,2,26; Deuteronomy 6:4; Proverbs 30:4; Matthew 3:16,17; John 14:26; and others]


  • Jesus Christ of Nazareth is both God and Man. He is known throughout the Scripture as the Son of God and the Son of Man. He is both Divine and Human. Therefore, we believe that He is God who came in the flesh to reveal the Father’s heart of redemption for the whole world. He is, therefore, the only mediator between God and man. [Daniel 3:25; Matthew 8:20,29; Matthew 14:33; Luke 1:26-38; John 1:1,14; John 14:1-3; Matthew 12:32; 1 Timothy 2:5 and many others]


  • Every human is born into sin, and is, therefore, considered to be a sinner by God and separated from Him. We also believe that because of the sin nature in every person they are incapable of living life free from sin. Therefore, every person is in bondage to sin. Man without God is lost and undone, without God, and / or hope in this world, and in desperate need for a Savior. [Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:10,19-26; Romans 6:6,16-18,23; Galatians 3:22-26; Ephesians 2:1,2,12]


  • In the saving [Greek [sozo] – forgiving, healing, and delivering] power of the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. We believe in His imputed righteousness and wholeness to everyone who will believe in, adhere to, rely on, and places their complete trust in Him. [Romans 10:9,10; Romans 5:1-11; Ephesians 3:1-15a; 1Peter 1:18,19; Acts 4:10,12; 1 Thessalonians 5:23]


  • The only way for mankind to be reconciled to God is through a personal faith in, and relationship with His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. This can only be achieved by faith, but is proven out by the fruit of good works. The redeemed of the Lord will spend eternity with Him in heaven, and the accursed [those who rejected God’s free gift of life] will spend eternity separated from Him in hell. [Isaiah 59:2; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; James 2:14-26; Romans 4:1-8; Romans 5:1,2; John 14:15,24 and others]

 

  • Salvation is not intended to get us to a place called heaven. Salvation is to get us into God’s kingdom so that God can get heaven to earth through us.


  • The Baptism in the Holy Spirit, Who is the third Person of the triune Godhead was taught by Jesus Himself and commanded to be received by Jesus. We believe in His work involving conversion, regeneration, and sanctification, and gifting. His work includes, but is not limited to, convicting of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He leads the believer into all truth. He reminds believers of things that Christ has spoken to them. He releases spiritual gifts to the believers as He wills. He empowers believers to be witnesses of Christ and continues to do the works that Jesus did while He was on the earth in human form. He glorifies Jesus by taking what is His and giving it to us. He searches the deep things of God. He prays for us when we do not know how to pray. We believe the evidence a person has been baptized in the Holy Spirit is that he or she will have been endued with power from heaven. [Luke 11:9-13; 24:49; John 14-16; Acts 1:8; 11:16; Romans 8:26-27; 1 Corinthians 12, 14]


  • We believe that the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking in other [unknown/unlearned] tongues, is for every born again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ who will ask for and receive them by faith. We do not believe that a person has to speak in other tongues, but we do encourage every person to speak in other tongues as often as they can. The baptism in the Spirit is a separate gift from God and was taught by Jesus Himself. [Luke 11:9-13; 24:49-53; John 14:26; John 16:8,13,14; 20:19-22; Acts 1:5,8; Acts 2:1-11; Acts 4:31; Acts 8:14-18; Acts 10:34-48; Acts 11:16; Acts 19:1-7; Romans 8:26-27; 1 Corinthians 2:10; 12 & 14; Hebrews 2:4 Amplified Bible]

 

  • The sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit begins the moment a person is born again by the Spirit of God. We believe this is a life long process, and is greatly helped when the person cooperates with the working of the Spirit. We believe that God is committed to complete every work that He begins in the life of the believer. We believe that every believer should seek to live a life worthy of the calling with which he or she has been called in order to bring glory and honor to the Lord Jesus Christ. [John 16:7-11; Romans 12:1-3; 1 Corinthians 3:16-18; 1 Corinthians 6:19,20; 1Peter 1:16; Philippians 1:27; Ephesians 4:1; Philippians 2:13; Philippians 1:6]

 

  • The saved and the lost will be physically raised from the dead. Those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. [Daniel 12:2; John 6:39,40,44,54 ; 1 Corinthians 15]


  • We believe that every born again believer is a priest unto God. Every believer has access to Him whenever and wherever he or she chooses to come into His Presence, through the only Mediator between God and man, the Man Christ Jesus. This does not mean that we can approach God disrespectfully, but we should consider well Who we are coming before. Every person must believe for themselves, be baptized for themselves, obey for themselves, and answer to their Creator for themselves. [Exodus 19:6; 1 Peter 2:9; Revelation 1:6]


  • The saved and the lost will be physically raised from the dead. Those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. [Daniel 12:2; John 6:39,40,44,54 ; 1 Corinthians 15]


  • We believe that marriage is a covenant that God has ordained between a man and a woman, for life. The sanctity of marriage is to be honored among all the members of Christ’s Body [Hebrews 13:4]. We do not condemn anyone who is presently living a lifestyle that is not in accordance with the sound doctrine on marriage. In the case of divorce, it is clear that while God hates it, He never hates the person who is divorced [Jeremiah 31:3; Malachi 2:16]. It is always our responsibility, as the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, to work toward holiness in all of our relationships within the church. The marriage bed is to be undefiled, which means it is a special place of honor and not dominion or perversion [Hebrews 13:4]. The Scripture is very clear. Believers are to have nothing to do [socially] with an immoral person that claims to be a Christian. [1 Corinthians 5:9-11] Scripture is also very clear that a believer is not to be yoked together with an unbeliever [2 Corinthians 6:14]. Jesus put a premium on immoral behavior by stating that lust in the heart makes someone just as guilty as the person that is physically involved with someone other than their spouse [Matthew 5:27-30]. Jesus, and the early Church elevated womanhood by stating that for the believer, divorce should not be an option. Even in cases of infidelity the goal should always be reconciliation. Jesus lived and ministered in a culture that held womanhood in very low esteem. A man could divorce his wife for any reason or for no reason. Women had no rights and could not provide for themselves or their children, apart from their husbands. Divorce resulted in many unhealthy lifestyle choices for women. Jesus was trying to eliminate no-fault divorce. [Matthew 5:31,32] [See also Genesis 1:18, 21-25]  The apostles Paul and Peter spoke frankly about marriage. They promoted the idea that husbands and wives should love and respect each other. [1 Corinthians 7; 1 Corinthians 13; Ephesians 5:21-33; 1 Peter 3:1-12] This is a huge subject that cannot be dealt with adequately here. Please know that we intend to show honor and respect to all, especially those who have been abused in relationships.


  • We believe that sexual purity is not only expected but required by God. Both the Old and New Covenants teach that any sex outside the covenant of marriage between one man and one woman is forbidden and disqualifies a person who practices a lifestyle not congruent with the Holy Scriptures from inheriting the kingdom they may have been granted access to in their new birth experience. [Leviticus 20:10-21; Romans 1:18-32; Colossians 3:1-11; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; 1 Timothy 1:8-11]



One Generation With Differing Maturity Levels


1 Peter 2:9 NKJ


“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”


Peter is revealing those who have been called out of darkness and called into God’s marvelous light are a:


  • Chosen generation
  • Royal priesthood
  • Holy nation


Those people are God’s very own special people who are called to:


Proclaim the praises of God who called them from a life of darkness and despair into a place of marvelous light and liberty.


Peter concurs with Paul who wrote this about this transition from one kingdom to another.


Colossians 1:13


“For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son.”


Paul says the kingdom of light Peter wrote about is the Kingdom where Jesus is King and ruling over His kingdom.


There are 7 levels of spiritual maturity in God’s kingdom. Four of those are found in the 1st level which is childhood. The 7 levels are:


Childhood


Brephos – An unborn and newborn child. This level of childhood is where the person is 100% dependent on someone else to care for them.


Nepios – The child is beginning to grow but still very selfish. This level of maturity reveals itself in carnal living where the person believes they are not to blame for their immaturity  and or irresponsibility. “That woman you gave me” is a typical response for the nepios believer.


Paidion – This level of maturity is where the child begins to understand the Father’s heart and purpose for them. They still manifest some selfish tendencies but they are growing out of them.


Teknon – This level of maturity is where the child has learned living irresponsibly in immaturity is unacceptable to the Father. This child is now living to honor the Father and would die to defend the honor of the Father.


Sonship [young men, young women]


The age where the Father entrusts His kingdom work to His child because they are strong and have proven they overcome the evil one.


Manhood


The age where the child has put away childish things and can honorably relate to others, especially those of the opposite gender.


Fatherhood

The age where the child can now reproduce kingdom children who mature into fatherhood.


Our purpose for every aspect of our ministry is to train, equip and activate maturing saints - regardless of their chronological age - who have violently apprehended the kingdom of God and who are vested in courageously advancing it into all the world - in the Biblical lifestyle of purity and power.


We believe only those who have surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus Christ are God's children and qualify for employment with, volunteering in, and participation in the Revolution Movement. [John 1:11-13; John 3:1-13; 2 Corinthians 6:14]


You  say you want a revolution? Join our Movement and watch God turn your world upside down so that He can turn the world right side up!


Receive  and steward God's passion, power, presence, priority, process,  promises, protection, provision, pruning, purging, purity and purpose!

Ways To Participate

Discipleship

Mentoring, discipling and fathering to the Lord Jesus Christ is for the sole  purpose of raising sons and daughters of God into fathers and mothers in  the kingdom of God. The Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Head of the body  of believers, is our model and role-model for all life and ministry.


Mentoring


Although  mentoring is not found in the Bible the concept is found in  discipleship. Kevin and Donna have invested in people through the years  that felt they only needed occasional help. RM will utilize various  methods to mentor individual Christians. At this level the person  seeking  to be mentored will communicate what they need and how often  they  want our help. 


Mentoring  will be the lowest level of participation in the Revolution Movement.  At this level the participant relates to RM occasionally as they see  they are in need of a mentor. The mentoring will last only as long as  the mentor feels he or she is being productive in meeting with the  person desiring being mentored, or the person being mentored believes  they no longer need our help.


If the person being mentored requires more than 2 sessions per month he or she must move into the Discipleship Movement.


Discipleship


RM  sees a disciple as a born again Christian who is committed to Christ,  His Word, rule, will and ways, and who is committed to become just like  Jesus who modeled how Christians are to live when He lived on earth  nearly 2000 years ago. Jesus was born of the Spirit, as well as was  always led and empowered by the Spirit to live in purity and power.


Discipleship requires an ongoing and much more in-depth relationship than just being someone’s mentor.


Discipleship may be individual and or groups of Christians in various ways  including but not limited to: one on one meetings, small group meetings,  advances, social media, video platforms, and even larger group events  as necessary. One on one and small group meetings will be in private  residences or public spaces, and the larger group meetings may be in an  authorized public space, in rented or owned properties by RM that are  suitable for the size of the group’s needs.


Fathering


Kingdom  fathering is taking on the responsibility to raise spiritual sons and  daughters - who choose to live responsibly as citizens of heaven - into  mature fathers and mothers who then will raise sons and daughters into  mature fathers and mothers. 


Fathering  carries with it the right and responsibility to hold those who are sons and daughters accountable, as well as discipline those who are under  their careful training as sons and or daughters. At the same time, in a healthy family, maturing children have the right and responsibility to ask their parents questions about what they are doing and why.


Hebrews 12:5-11 TPT


“5 And  have you forgotten his encouraging words spoken to you as his children?  He said, ‘My child, don’t underestimate the value of the discipline and  training of the Lord God, or get depressed when he has to correct you.  6 For the Lord’s training of your life is the evidence of his faithful  love. And when he draws you to himself, it proves you are his delightful  child.’


7 Fully  embrace God’s correction as part of your training, for he is doing what  any loving father does for his children. For who has ever heard of a  child who never had to be corrected? 8 We all should welcome God’s  discipline as the validation of authentic sonship. For if we have never  once endured his correction it only proves we are strangers and not  sons.


9 And  isn’t it true that we respect our earthly fathers even though they  corrected and disciplined us? Then we should demonstrate an even greater  respect for God, our spiritual Father, as we submit to his life-giving  discipline. 10 Our parents corrected us for the short time of our  childhood as it seemed good to them. But God corrects us throughout our  lives for our own good, giving us an invitation to share his holiness.  11 Now all discipline seems to be more pain than pleasure at the time,  yet later it will produce a transformation of character, bringing a  harvest of righteousness and peace to those who yield to it.”


The  Passion Translation is a very gracious translation. The King James says  verse 5 this way, “. . . nor faint when thou art rebuked of him”, and  verse 6 like this, “For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and  scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.”


Thayer’s Dictionary of New Testament Words


Rebuke  - To convict, refute, generally with a suggestion of shame of the  person convicted; to convict to bring to the light; to severely chide.


Chasten - To train by castigating with words to mould the character of the one being chastened to that of God’s character.


Scourge - To whip, punish [this is the same word for when Jesus was scourged.

Scourging  was to rip the flesh off the victim inflicting horrendous pain and  suffering. Spiritual scourging is to remove the carnal flesh from the  person being scourged.


1 Corinthians 4:14-17 TPT


“14 I’m  not writing this to embarrass you or to shame you, but to correct you  as the children I love. 15 For although you could have countless  babysitters in Christ telling you what you’re doing wrong, you don’t  have many fathers who correct you in love. But I’m a true father to you,  for I became your father when I gave you the gospel and brought you  into union with Jesus, the Anointed One. 


16 So I encourage you, my  children, to follow the example that I live before you. 17 That’s why  I’ve sent my dear son Timothy, whom I love. He is faithful to the Lord  God and will remind you of how I conduct myself as one who lives in  union with Jesus, the Anointed One, and of the teachings that I bring to  everyone everywhere.”


At  the same time, in a healthy family sons and daughters have the right  and responsibility to question their spiritual parents in an honorable  way.


When  a child reaches the age where they can consistently make righteous  choices, fathering [parenting] takes on a different role. In the natural  realm healthy parents raise adults who begin as children. They train  "up" their child in the way that child should go and then release their  child to go in they way they were trained.


While the parents will always hold a place of honor with their child, they are not needed to oversee  their daily lives. The mature child is not co-dependent on the parents  but relates to them in an 'as need' basis instead of an 'I cannot  survive without you' basis.


Who  were the first disciples' spiritual father once Jesus ascended into  heaven? God the Father was!


Who was Paul the apostle's spiritual father?  God the Father was!


Yet they all related to others in the faith in  healthy accountable relationships. For instance, both Peter and Paul  submitted their ministry to the apostles, elders and believers in the  Jerusalem church.


No where do you see them calling anyone their  spiritual father! They did recognize and honor healthy spiritual  authority!


In  fact, other than Jesus only Paul and Peter referred to themselves as  spiritual fathers - Peter [1 Peter 5:13] and Paul [1 Timothy1:2;  others].


Train, Equip, Activate, Mature


Our  training program will include but not be limited to: studying the Bible  together, studying authorized materials written by Dr. Kevin M. Drury  and other RM associated and authorized authors, and will include  assignments that will verify what the disciples of Christ are learning  both intellectually and experientially.


The disciples will be required  to go into the communities where the training centers are located and  share what they have learned in the market place [into all the world or  all of their world].


Our  training program will be designed to move the training from one  generation [individuals or groups] to succeeding generations  [individuals or groups] using the Bible as the foundational that we  teach, as well as Dr. Kevin M. Drury’s written materials, or other  published materials by authorized RM writers and equippers as the  Curriculum.


2 Timothy 2:2


“The  things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses,  entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”


In this text we learn:


There  are 4 generations mentioned: 1] Paul, 2] his spiritual son Timothy who  Paul trained, and trusted implicitly and explicitly with his life’s work  and gospel message, 3] faithful men who could be trusted to teach  Paul’s life work and Gospel message, and 4] others also who would learn  Paul’s life’s work and Gospel message.


There  is a pattern all through Scripture that God thinks, plans and reveals  three to four generations into the future from those He communicates  with. He calls Himself, and is called, “The God of Abraham, Isaac and  Jacob.”


Additionally, Solomon wrote this about legacy building: “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children.”

We  also learn that Timothy was not the only person who heard Paul’s  message [“in the presence of many witnesses”], but apparently he was the  only one who captured the core values of Paul’s life and message. The  many witnesses heard the same teachings but either did not grasp what  Paul taught or they did not prove to Paul they could be trusted with his  life’s work and Gospel message.


We believe we are handing what we have learned up, not off, to those we are leading in this kingdom advance.


Proverbs 22:6


“Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.”


Activation  is a crucial component to discipleship, and to the maturation process  all believers in Jesus Christ are called to engage in and successfully  accomplish. Each believer has been given gifts they are to utilize as  functioning members of Christ’s body.


Romans 12:6


“Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly.”


Jesus gave His disciples both power and authority to advance His kingdom.


Luke 9:1,2


“1 And  He called the twelve together, and gave them power and authority over  all the demons and to heal diseases. 2 And He sent them out to proclaim  the kingdom of God and to perform healing.”

A  major part of Jesus’ training of the twelve was instruction [placing  His structure inside of them], authority [the legal right and  responsibility to represent Him in public [Power of Attorney]], power  [dynamic, explosive power to overcome the devil’s destructive activity  in the earth], and confidence to go tell others the good news of His  kingdom’s arrival, effectiveness and advance into all the earth.


Jesus  started His discipleship training with novice believers. We find His  initial training in Matthew 5-7. This is known as the Sermon on the  Mount, as well as The Constitution of the Kingdom.


Jesus  began His teaching in Matthew 5 with, “Blessed are the poor [bankrupt]  in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of God.” He taught as soon as a  person acknowledges to God their spiritual bankrupt condition, and turn  to Him for salvation, they are given access to God’s kingdom, and all  the resources in His kingdom.


He  ends Matthew 5 with, “You are to become perfect just as your Father in  heaven is perfect [Verse 48].” Jesus revealed God’s plan was to take His  children [disciples of Jesus] from babes in Christ to being mature in  Christ, or “just as [like] your Father in heaven.”


In  chapter 6 Jesus is teaching this novice believers to pray and He gives  them a model prayer to use when they pray. “And do not lead us into  temptation, but deliver us from evil.” [Matthew 6:13]

John,  who was present when Jesus taught the Sermon on the Mount, wrote this  about the transition and transformation from novice [new believer] to a  mature believer [young men].


“13  I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one.  14 I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the  word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one.” [1 John  2]


So  John understood that every disciple is expected to grow up and become  so responsible that they are no longer susceptible to evil and to  overcome the temptation to sin.


DISCOVERING DISCIPLES, SONS AND DAUGHTERS


We  see a pattern that is spelled out in the life and ministry of Jesus on  how He was able to choose those who participated in His discipleship  program, and who matured into sons and daughters. The references below  are not all of the ways Jesus chose disciples, but are representative of  the main ways He was able to find faithful followers and enter them  into His discipleship training program.


First, those individuals who recognized God was with Jesus in a special way and wanted to follow Him:


John 1:35-37


“35 Again  the next day John [the baptist] was standing with two of his disciples,  36 and he looked at Jesus as He walked, and said, ‘Behold, the Lamb of  God!’ 37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.”


John 1:40-42


“40 One  of the two who heard John speak and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon  Peter's brother. 41 He found first his own brother Simon and said to  him, ‘We have found the Messiah’ [which translated means Christ]. 42 He  brought him to Jesus.”


John 1:43-46


“43 The  next day Jesus purposed to go into Galilee, and He found Philip. And  Jesus said to him, ‘Follow Me.’ 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the  city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him,  ‘We have found Him of whom Moses in the Law and also the Prophets  wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.’ 


46 Nathanael said to him,  ‘Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?’ Philip said to him, ‘Come and  see.’”


Large public meetings:


Luke 6:12,13,17-19


“12 It  was at this time that He went off to the mountain to pray, and He spent  the whole night in prayer to God. 13 And when day came, He called His  disciples to Him and chose twelve of them.


17 Jesus came down with them  and stood on a level place; and there was a large crowd of His  disciples, and a great throng of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and  the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon, 18 who had come to hear Him and  to be healed of their diseases; and those who were troubled with unclean  spirits were being cured. 19 And all the people were trying to touch  Him, for power was coming from Him and healing them all.”


In this text we discover:


Verse 13


There  was a large group of disciples [Verse 17] from whom Jesus chose twelve  men [people] to follow Him closer than those He did not choose from the  large crowd of disciples.


Verses 17, 18


A  large crowd of disciples [possibly one hundred twenty] were present and  a great throng of people [possibly thousands or tens of thousands] who  had come to hear Jesus and for Him to take care of all that was  troubling them [physical and spiritual disabilities, dysfunctions,  etc.]. 


This  public meeting included teaching [instruction] and healing and  deliverance ministry. The non disciple crowd were there only to have  their problems taken away. The disciples were there in hopes of being  chosen to follow Christ in closer proximity to Him.


Luke 10:1,2


“1  Now after this the Lord appointed seventy others. 2 And He was saying  to them, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore  beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.’”


This  group of seventy were from the original “large crowd of disciples” we  see in Luke 6. So we see Jesus continued to bring more disciples into a  closer relationship with Him for the purpose of sending them to advance  His kingdom in order to reach more people with God’s message of love,  forgiveness and discipleship.


Kevin  and Donna will minister in other cities, states and nations as  opportunities arise for the purpose of preaching the gospel of God’s  love and grace, as well as to advance the kingdom into all of the earth.


If  during these ministry opportunities people decide to join our Movement  we will interview them to see if they meet the criteria set out in our  identifying characteristics, bylaws and stated purposes.


Finding Sons and Daughters


The  way to discover those disciples who are spiritual sons  and daughters [children] is they will allow you to hold them accountable and welcome you  disciplining them, even if it is severe. [See Hebrews 12 Under  Fathering]


It  is from this group of people that Kevin and Donna will find those they  can entrust their life's work to and who will oversee TRM's Kingdom  Advance Training Centers around the world.


IDENTIFYING CHARACTERISTICS


There  are six identifying characteristics Jesus has instructed us to look for  in choosing disciples to go through this program. Six is the number for  man, but is also one in addition to five which is the number for grace.


We believe these types of people possess God’s grace, and our DNA to  enter into and faithfully facilitate this discipleship movement. These  six types of people and their characteristics are not all the  characteristics that are important to God or TRM. They just happen to  represent what we are to look for in people.


Joshua


Stayed in the presence of God when Moses went back to the community!

Joshua  proved his faithfulness to God and His Presence by being in Moses’  presence when he was in God’s Presence, and then stayed to get more of  God when Moses had to attend to other matters.


Joshua represents Presence people, not people pleasing people!


Exodus 33:7-11


“7 Now  Moses used to take the tent and pitch it outside the camp, a good  distance from the camp, and he called it the tent of meeting. And  everyone who sought the Lord would go out to the tent of meeting which  was outside the camp. 8 And it came about, whenever Moses went out to  the tent, that all the people would arise and stand, each at the  entrance of his tent, and gaze after Moses until he entered the tent.  


9 Whenever Moses entered the tent, the pillar of cloud would descend and  stand at the entrance of the tent; and the Lord would speak with Moses.  10 When all the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the entrance  of the tent, all the people would arise and worship, each at the  entrance of his tent.


11 Thus the LORD used to speak to Moses face to  face, just as a man speaks to his friend. When Moses returned to the  camp, his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, would not depart  from the tent.”


Moses  was not a priest so he could not minister to the Lord in his own  Tabernacle so he set up another tent “a good distance from the camp”  where 1.5 - 5 million people camped.


It was a great effort to get there and back. Joshua paid the same price Moses did and God noticed Joshua’s commitment.


Numbers 27:15-23


“15 Then  Moses spoke to the Lord, saying, 16 ‘May the Lord, the God of the  spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation, 17 who will  go out and come in before them, and who will lead them out and bring  them in, so that the congregation of the Lord will not be like sheep  which have no shepherd.’


18 So  the Lord said to Moses, ‘Take Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is  the Spirit, and lay your hand on him; 19 and have him stand before  Eleazar the priest and before all the congregation, and commission him  in their sight. 20 You shall put some of your authority on him, in order  that all the congregation of the sons of Israel may obey him.  21 Moreover, he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall inquire  for him by the judgment of the Urim before the Lord. At his command  they shall go out and at his command they shall come in, both he and the  sons of Israel with him, even all the congregation.’ 


22 Moses  did just as the Lord commanded him; and he took Joshua and set him  before Eleazar the priest and before all the congregation. 23 Then he  laid his hands on him and commissioned him, just as the Lord had spoken  through Moses.”


Deuteronomy 34:9


“Now  Joshua the son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom, for Moses  had laid his hands on him; and the sons of Israel listened to him and  did as the LORD had commanded Moses.”


This is very similar to what we see in the lives of Paul and his spiritual son Timothy.


2 Timothy 1:6,7


“6  For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is  in you through the laying on of my hands. 7 For God has not given us a  spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.”


Caleb


Looked  for more responsibility at 85 after he had proven responsible by  helping others obtain their inheritance! He was 40 when he spied out the  Promised Land with Joshua, and the 10 spies who were compromised  cowards.

Caleb  was not looking to cruise into retirement. He was looking for more  responsibility to test out his experiences gained in persevering in the  wilderness for 40 years and in the battles he was part of for 5 years  helping others reach their purpose.


Caleb represents those people who want more responsibility the longer they live!


Numbers 14:22-24


“22 Surely  all the men who have seen My glory and My signs which I performed in  Egypt and in the wilderness, yet have put Me to the test these ten times  and have not listened to My voice, 23 shall by no means see the land  which I swore to their fathers, nor shall any of those who spurned Me  see it. 24 But My servant Caleb, because he has had a different spirit  and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land which he entered,  and his descendants shall take possession of it.”


Joshua 14:6-12


“6 Then  the sons of Judah drew near to Joshua in Gilgal, and Caleb the son of  Jephunneh the Kenizzite said to him, ‘You know the word which the Lord  spoke to Moses the man of God concerning you and me in Kadesh-barnea.  7 I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the Lord sent me from  Kadesh-barnea to spy out the land, and I brought word back to him as it  was in my heart. 8 Nevertheless my brethren who went up with me made the  heart of the people melt with fear; but I followed the Lord my God  fully.


9 So Moses swore on that day, saying, 'Surely the land on which your foot has trodden will be an inheritance to you and to your children  forever, because you have followed the Lord my God fully.' 10 Now  behold, the Lord has let me live, just as He spoke, these forty-five  years, from the time that the Lord spoke this word to Moses, when Israel  walked in the wilderness; and now behold, I am eighty-five years old  today. 11 I am still as strong today as I was in the day Moses sent me;  as my strength was then, so my strength is now, for war and for going  out and coming in. 12 Now then, give me this hill country about which  the Lord spoke on that day, for you heard on that day that Anakim were  there, with great fortified cities; perhaps the Lord will be with me,  and I will drive them out as the Lord has spoken.’”


David


David,  the man God said was a man after His own heart, and who fulfilled all  of His will in his own generation before entering into immortality. 


Although  David chose to sin with Bathsheba he repented quickly and completely  when confronted by Nathan the prophet. His repentance was proven  authentic because he never committed adultery again.


David  represents a warrior worshiping prophet, priest and king. David, as a  prophet spoke God’s Word and will because he valued, studied, meditated  on and memorized the Word. As a priest David represented the people  before God and God before the people. As a king David ruled according to  God’s revealed rule to him.


David  represents the world class psalmists, lyricists, musicians, singers,  instrument makers, revolutionary worshipers and worship leaders who  bring the atmosphere of heaven into earth and release miracles and  deliverance through their worship based on God’s Word, rule, will and  ways. David worshiped the Father in spirit and truth!


1 Samuel 16:23


“So  it came about whenever the evil spirit from God came to Saul, David  would take the harp and play it with his hand; and Saul would be  refreshed and be well, and the evil spirit would depart from him.”


2 Samuel 23:1


“Now  these are the last words of David. David the son of Jesse declares, the  man who was raised on high declares, the anointed of the God of Jacob,  and the sweet psalmist of Israel,”


1 Chronicles 23:5


“. . . were praising the Lord with the instruments which David made for giving praise.”


Psalms 1:1,2


“1 How  blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor  stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! 2 But his  delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and  night.”


Psalms 19:7-14


"7 The  law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the  Lord is sure, making wise the simple. 8 The precepts of the Lord are  right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure,  enlightening the eyes. 9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring  forever; The judgments of the Lord are true; they are righteous  altogether. 10 They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine  gold; Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.  


11 Moreover, by them Your servant is warned; In keeping them there is  great reward. 12 Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults.  13 Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins; Let them not  rule over me; Then I will be blameless, And I shall be acquitted of  great transgression. 14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of  my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.”


Psalms 32:7


“You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance.” Selah


Psalms 45:1


“My heart overflows with a good theme; I address my verses to the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”


Psalms 119


Read the entire Psalm to understand David’s value for God and His Word, rule, will and ways!


Psalms 144:1


“Blessed be the Lord, my rock, Who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle;”


Acts 13:22,36


“22  He raised up David to be their king, concerning whom He also testified  and said, 'I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My heart,  who will do all My will.' 36 For David, after he had served the purpose  of God in his own generation, fell asleep, and was laid among his  fathers and underwent decay.”


Luke


Left a medical practice to travel with Paul to record the history Paul was making!

Luke  represents armor bearers, personal assistants, technology and  administrative type people called to assist the momentum in the movement  by freeing Kevin and Donna up to facilitate the movement.


Luke is called “Beloved physician”


Colossians 4:14


“Luke, the beloved physician, sends you his greetings.”


Luke 1:1-4


“1 Inasmuch  as many have undertaken to compile an account of the things  accomplished among us, 2 just as they were handed down to us by those  who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and servants of the word, 3 it  seemed fitting for me as well, having investigated everything carefully  from the beginning, to write it out for you in consecutive order, most  excellent Theophilus; 4 so that you may know the exact truth about the  things you have been taught.”


Acts 1:1


“The first account I composed, Theophilos, about all that Jesus began to do and teach.”


Timothy


Heard what many witnesses never heard and became a responsible trusted son [teknon - mature child] to Paul!


Timothy  was totally committed to Paul as a spiritual father and faithful  servant to the degree that he travelled with Paul, stayed in Ephesus at  Paul’s instructions and carried out Paul’s instruction when Paul left,  came to Paul when Paul summoned him just before he was beheaded, and  trusted Paul when he sent someone to take Timothy’s place in Ephesus for  him to come to Paul.


Timothy  represents authentic son and daughters who will become fathers and  mothers who are called to transition this movement to future generations  of sons and daughters who will become fathers and mothers of the  movement.


These  "Timothy's [sons and daughters] will be the people Kevin and Donna will  entrust their life's work to in various cities and nations around the  world.


2 Timothy 2:2


“The  things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses,  entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”


Paul  poured his life into Timothy and trusted Timothy with his investment in  him. Timothy heard what Paul meant while the many witnesses just heard  Paul’s words. This proved to Paul that  Timothy had his heart and could  be entrusted with his life message and work, would locate faithful  [committed to Paul and his life message and work] people to be entrusted  with his life’s work and message, and who could be trusted to locate  other faithful people to entrust Paul’s life message and work with.

Paul left a 4 generation legacy for Timothy to steward after his death!


2 Timothy 4:9


“Make every effort to come to me soon.”


2 Timothy 4:12


“Tychicus I have sent to Ephesus.”


Matthias


Stayed  connected, current and committed to Christ and His mission even when  rejected twice for Jesus’ original and expanded leadership teams which  enabled the Spirit to choose Him to replace Judas!


Matthias  represents those who are called to the Movement, and who commit to the  Movement to the degree that when rejected multiple times will stay  committed to the Movement they committed to so when they are truly ready  for responsibility the Holy Spirit will choose them to step into their  role of responsibility.


Not  only this, but Matthias is not recorded doing anything in Scripture yet  the Holy Spirit selected him to fill the office Judas abandoned. The  Holy Spirit “knows the heart of all men” and He knew Matthias was the  antithesis on Judas who “became a betrayer.”


Matthias  represents those disciples who do not need or seek  public affirmation  or recognition to fulfill the responsibilities entrusted to them.  Matthias people are significant servants in, to and for the Movement!


Acts 1:21-26


“21 ‘Therefore  it is necessary that of the men who have accompanied us all the time  that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us — 22 beginning with the  baptism of John until the day that He was taken up from us — one of  these must become a witness with us of His resurrection.’


23 So they put  forward two men, Joseph called Barsabbas (who was also called Justus),  and Matthias. 24 And they prayed and said, ‘You, Lord, who know the  hearts of all men, show which one of these two You have chosen 25 to  occupy this ministry and apostleship from which Judas turned aside to go  to his own place.’ 26 And they drew lots for them, and the lot fell to  Matthias; and he was added to the eleven apostles.”


Matthias  was one of a large number of disciples beginning with Jesus’ water and  Spirit baptism. Matthias was not selected to part of the original 12.  Matthias was not selected to be part of the additional 70. Matthias was, we believe, among the left out 38 disciples who were present in Luke 6  when Jesus hand picked the 12 original disciples.


Matthias stayed ready,  did not take offense at being rejected twice so the Holy Spirit chose  him over Joseph called Barsabbas - “You, Lord who know the hearts of all  men, . . .”
