Today on Are You Real Government Dubb Alexander welcomes Keith Ferrante. Keith is a powerful prophet to the nations, an accomplished author, and a worldwide prophetic trainer. 

Keith shares his story about how he started walking in his prophetic gift when he was 22 after God started delivering him from a religious mindset. Through that, he started to shift from the church mountain to the business and government mountain. Now Keith travels the world sharing his gift of past, present, and future prophecy to bring breakthrough to the nations.

In this episode Keith will explain how you can't bring something to people, they have to be that something. He will also share his involvement in the restoration of North and South Korea, what the Fathers' heart is for Germany and speak about the poverty mindset in the world plus much more.

Having a heart and a passion for service doesn’t always look the same. Sometimes, the way we conduct our businesses can also have God’s mission and our purpose in mind. My guest today sees his business in just this way—as a way to live out his calling to minister to God’s people.

Brian Schiele has been in the mortgage lending business for the past 15 yrs, and he sees his job as the perfect opportunity to serve others. Your home is your largest asset, and many people come to Brian and Fellowship Home Loans with a dream. Brian makes those dreams financially possible. For Brian, mortgages are all about the stories of people and what they are looking to accomplish. He was lucky and found a business that enabled him to use his passion for people and gift with numbers together. He grew his business not just so he could make a lot of money, but so he could help a lot of people.

The market hasn’t always been so kind to Brian. Through the market crash in ’07-’08, Brian and his partner remained faithful to the ministry God had called them to. After the crash, the market changed and they learned their trade anew. Brain’s faithfulness and passion have carried him far, and I know you will take a lot of away from this interview today!

More in this episode:

  • How Brian got his start in this business world.
  • The Scripture from Proverbs 15:3 that is so important to Brian, it’s on the back of his business card.
  • The story behind Brian’s partnership and a business built by values.
  • Brian’s business was a slow start, but he was OK with that!
  • Brian’s story of the housing market crash and how that completely changed his plans.
  • How Brian managed the changes in the market even though he felt like he was brand new at it.
  • What happens when we spread ourselves too thin.
  • God is doing big things in Brian’s life in the family sphere.
  • How Brian integrates his ministry into his business.
  • Brian shares how he wishes he had gotten to know more diverse people in college.

Today Dubb Alexander welcomes back Dr. Undrai Fizer, for part two of Kingdom Consciousness.

Dubb and Dr. Fizer have a great conversation about how the Kingdom of God is governmental in nature, and what that means to us as Kings of the earth.

If the earth is our Kingdom, why are we not taking our inheritance? Because we don't truly believe we are Kings. In the garden, Adam and Eve did not believe who they were. They didn't claim their territory. The fall was the first act of religion. The difference between religion and the Kingdom is: Religion caters to your mere humanity, the Kingdom tells you who you were before the foundation of the world.

Your identity transcends this dimension and this world.

In this podcast, Dr. Undrai Fizer will give you great resources to explore the Kingdom, teach you how to identify a Kingdom meeting, and more.

Today in episode 17 of Are You Real Linked Christy Austin will guide you through Luke chapter ten verse seven.

 "And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages. Do not go from house to house."

This verse says a lot to City Takers about the importance of community. For true revival to come to our cities we need to link arm in arm with our brothers and sisters around us because we can not take a city alone. There is no such thing as a lone ranger city taker. 

In 2018 society is telling us that it is okay to bounce around from community to community. But Jesus is calling us in this verse to commit to one and other and stick it out even when it gets difficult.

Christy will share what her community looks like and how being intimate with each other also means true intimacy with the Holy Spirit.

One of the most influential ministries in the United States has got to be the Passion Conference, a ministry of Passion City Church. I’ve been following this ministry for 20 years, and it is so evident that God is moving through the worship ministry at Passion City Church.

Today, Kristian is going to share all of the experiences and decisions that led him to this amazing ministry. You see for Kristian, it’s not just about making records. For him, it’s about capturing what God is doing in the people of his church. God is the vision, and he simply acts in faith. Kristian and I had the chance to talk about community, unique gifts, and God’s call on our lives. I know you are going to love hearing the extreme faith that Kristian lives out every day!

Welcome to Are You Real Linked episode 16! Today Christy Austin breaks down Luke 10 and Galatians 5. These verses are extremely important for all City Takers as we look for "men and women of peace" in our towns.

The church is having an identity crisis because we are losing the relational aspect of the body and the bride.  In the beginning, God longed for intimacy with man. A relationship is the foundation of our creation. When we press into our relationship with Him it transforms us from the inside out and we start bearing good fruit.

In Luke 10 Jesus doesn't tell us to look for the rule followers, or the churchgoers, or the religious He says "look for the man of peace". Peace is a fruit of the spirit if you flip over to Galatians 5 Paul clearly lays out how to identify good (Holy Spirit) and bad (Sin Nature) "fruits".  If you are taking a city through the art of giving, you will love the wisdom in this episode. 

What City are you taking? Reach out and tell us! We would love to link with you in prayer.

Today, we are going to shine some light on a topic many people don’t know much about. The subject is Embryo Adoption, and my expert guests are Katie Cline and Charis Boone. Embryo Adoption occurs when a couple has undergone IVF to produce embryos outside of the womb for the mother to carry to term. It is a miracle of modern medicine that is helping infertile couples grow their families, but it also has an unfortunate consequence: there are leftover embryos. Charis and Katie believe that life begins at conception, so these embryos are children waiting to be adopted. This is the inspiration behind the National Registry for Adoption, an organization committed to helping these embryos find forever families.

If this whole process sounds a little uncertain to you at first, give these ladies a chance to explain. Katie is an Embryo Donor, and Charis is an Embryo Adopter. They each have a unique perspective on the adoption process that is truly wonderful. Each of these ladies has the heart to give homes to the homeless and to nurture every child that is born or unborn. They were willing to walk through uncertainty, awkward conversations, and pregnancy to give these kids a life. God has been blessing their organization, and it is clear why. The National Registry is on to something!

Listen this week to hear how Charis and Katie found their purpose, and why Embryo Adoption needs to be at the forefront of the public eye. 

More in this episode:

  • Katie shares the process of IVF and what it means to be an Embryo Donor.
  • Charis shares what it meant for her to be an Embryo Adopter.
  • An embryo adoption only costs $4,000.
  • The difference between orphan care adoption and family growth adoption.
  • There are 28 families waiting for every child put up for adoption.
  • God is using the gifts he gave Charis and Katie to change lives.
  • No one hears about embryo adoption.
  • Is it difficult to donate an embryo?
  • There are varying levels of involvement with the donor families.
  • Charis shares her relationship with her donor family.
  • The positives of Embryo Adoption.
  • How the National Registry for Adoption has grown over the years.

Do brothers and sisters grow up to be exactly the same? We would probably all answer a resounding NO! Think about it: they have the same parents, the same house, the same rules, and the same environment---yet can grow up to be VERY different. Today’s discussion is about the three stages of psychological development, meaning how we become who we are.

These three stages are particularly important for those of us who are raising children in today’s world. You may hear negative feedback about today’s youth, their work ethic, their character, etc., but the fact remains that WE are teaching them and allowing them to develop their work habits. Dr. Morris Massey says that we each process our experiences differently and that what really matters in our development is how we label these experiences. Let’s dive deeper!

More in this episode:

  • Three stages of psychological development:
  • Stage 1:  Imprinting:  This stage is all about teaching the duality of life.  A child will learn right from wrong, good from bad, and will take on some of the personality aspects of the person or persons that are raising them.  They will shift their brain waves from slower cycles (like a hypnotic state) to higher frequency cycles (conscious processing). As this shift happens around 4 years old, young people begin to have the ability for conscious processing and reasoning.
  • Stage 2:  Modeling: This stage is about the development of values and beliefs.  Young people will begin to find people who they wish to be just like, or to model.  The most common models are teachers and coaches. If a child is required to do chores and to work on a regular basis during this stage, they are more like to have high work ethic, better customer service skills, and will be less likely to return home after their education.  How a person works later in life is strongly dependent upon the meaning that they give to their experiences during this time. Also, when a child is exposed to Christian principles on a regular basis early in life, they are 80% more likely to be a Christian when they grow up.
  • Stage 3:  Socialization:  This stage is about learning critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, and ultimately will serve as their blueprint for personal accountability.  It is incredibly important who the young person hangs out with during this stage because they adopt the strategies of those that they are close to. It is important to note that males and females develop at a different pace from one another.  The male brain grows 4 years slower than the female brain.
  • One criticism of youth today is that they expect things to be given to them. They are NOT born with that expectation, but it is conditioned into them.
  • Tips for holding children accountable:
    • During socialization, they should be responsible for waking themselves up in the morning for school/work
    • Parents should ask about their “homework situation” and about their specific plan to get it done, but it should be THEIR responsibility
  • During socialization, when they make a mistake, ask three critical questions:
    • What happened?
    • At what point could you have done something differently?
    • What will you do next time?
  • When a mistake occurs, transfer the locus of control from external to internal, so they say, “I made a choice.” The goal is for them to say, “I choose my actions, my attitude, my emotions, and my homework habits.”
  • For kids AND adults, the five people who are closest to you will determine who you are, because you will be just like them.
  • It is critical that we continue to develop the right character, values, and behavioral habits in the people we lead.

Welcome to Are You Real Linked Episode 15.

Today we continue our teaching on Luke 10. Specifically, verse 5.

Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house!'

This may be a short verse, but if you dive a little deeper there is so much Jesus is telling us. Christy Austin will guide you through the true meaning of this verse, and what it means for City Takers. She will explain why Jesus tells us to go to peoples houses, and how to find true peace through prayers of thanksgiving and much more.

Being a therapist, Christy sees first hand how the world needs the peace that only God can give. Not temporary peace the world gives.

You will love taking a longer look at this verse. If you are called to be a city taker, we would love to hear how this episode inspires you to transform your city through the act of giving.

Welcome to the third part of this series, Your health- spirit, soul, and body.

Today we will be discussing what it looks like to be healthy physically and what the necessary components are to having an overall healthy physical body.

For many people, the first thing they think of when anyone mentions a healthy body, is the idea of weight. As a trainer, I am frequently asked “what is a healthy weight for me?” or “how much weight should I lose?” and these are never  easy questions to answer. Most people tend to only look at the scale, or focus on their BMI, so I'd like to answer these questions by breaking the idea of healthy body weight down for you in a way that will make it easier to understand. Listen in today to find out about body composition and why everyone's body composition is going to be different.

Although having a healthy body weight is really important, this is subjective to each  individual, as body composition varies from one person to the next. The body composition includes all the factors relating to one's weight- the muscle, the fat, the bones, and also the vital organs, so it's really necessary to look at all these factors when doing an evaluation of your health and this also means that everyone's ideal body weight will be different. Listen in today as I explain some of the often overlooked factors pertaining to body composition that really need to be taken into account when assessing your ideal body weight.

 

Show Highlights:

 

  • Looking at body composition as an evaluation of your overall health.
  • How the body composition of two individuals with the same statistics can vary.
  • Taking all the factors pertaining to body composition into account when looking at your weight.
  • Being on a strategic exercise program and eating healthily can influence your amount of body fat.
  • How genetics play a role in some people's ability to lose weight faster than others.
  • Hard work does pay off!
  • The importance of committing to (and adhering to) a fitness goal.
  • How you can really benefit from an exercise program.
  • About your cardio-respiratory endurance.
  • What weight training does for your body.
  • Creating an exercise program that will help you to maintain an ideal weight.
  • Why you really need to maintain your flexibility.
  • Building overall muscular endurance with your exercise program.
  • Nutrition is a huge part of creating and maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle.

 

                       

                             Set your goals. Say your prayers. Work hard.

Today on Are You Real Government we are honored to talk to Dr. Noah Manyika.

He is running for the presidential office of Zimbabwe in the 2018 race under the Build Zimbabwe Alliance. Dr. Manyika truly is a man after Gods own heart. He grew up in Zimbabwe with parents who had faith and taught him how to have hope despite the circumstances that were around him. When he was older, God called Dr. Manyika and his wife to be missionaries in the North Carolina for 22 years.

More recently God has brought the Manyika's back home to Zimbabwe to claim their inheritance and change the direction of the country. You will hear about how God has guided his campaign trail, and how the Kingdom is manifesting in the country of Africa.

This interview has so much depth, insight, and wisdom from Dr. Noah Manyika that it is undeniable that God is moving in the Government Mountain. 

If you would like to hear more about Dr. Manyika and his team we recommend going back and listening to episode 08 with Dr. Manyika's campaign advisor Chantelle Irish.

On Are You Real Linked 14 we dive further into Luke 10.

In 2017 God spoke to Christy Austin and said: "2018 will be the year of abundant harvest". That's why we love to talk to city takers around the world to see how God is fulfilling this promise. 

Today we want to introduce you to Steve and Amanda Pettit. Many years ago God told them to sell everything they own and be missionaries. Obeying that call the Lord has taken them around the world to spread the gospel and meet some incredible people.

Currently, they are taking the city of Fort Worth Texas with Mission 820. Every night they go into the streets and evangels to prostitutes, crack heads, and sex traffickers to show them the love of God. 

We love how Steve and Amanda live out Luke 10 so beautifully. They are going to people and BEING the church not TAKING people to the church.

You will love hearing how much influence God is giving them around the world.

Successful business leaders and entrepreneurs have one thing in common: they are coachable. If you have people in your life who have been appointed to give you guidance and clarity, then there is no way you can go wrong. Success is about more than just making a lot of money, and we need someone who can hold us accountable and offer wisdom to help us gain excellence in all areas of life.

In order to be coachable, you need to be able to swallow your pride. Once you know you are coachable, the hard work of finding someone begins. Lucky for you, I happen to have plenty of knowledge about how to find a great life or business coach. Let’s dive in today to see what it takes!

I met Jason Earls, the comedian, about a week ago at the Shawn Bolz Conference, in Dallas, Tx, and had an immediate connection with him. I ask Jason to tell us one of his favorite verses that help guide him. He quoted Colossians 4:17. Paul writes, “And say to Archippus, Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfill it.” Paul saw the need to encourage Archippus, maybe because people were not paying his ministry much attention, and Paul knew he wanted him to fulfill it.

Jason says he doesn’t live to make people laugh but makes people laugh to help them live! He says he knew as early as high school that being a comedian was his destiny. He went on to seminary and grad school, and knew he could use laughter to glorify the King!

Today on Are You Real Linked we continue our study on Luke 10. Over the past few episodes, we have talked to many different city takers across the nation and heard their story's about how God is using them to take back their city for the Kingdom through the art of giving. If you have missed these interviews we highly recommend going back and listening before you dive into today's episode.

On episode 13 Christy Austin dissects Luke 10 Verse 4 and what it means in 2018.

 "Carry no moneybag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road."

What does that mean? Why is Jesus saying I don't need my shoes? What about my debit card? This verse can bring up so many questions if you are not studying the word properly.

Christy breaks down how this verse is talking to us about God's provision, his faithfulness, and how we need to silence our distractions.

We can't wait to hear how God speaks to you in this episode!

It is always refreshing to find someone else who has found purpose in podcasting, and that is exactly what the Zach, Scott, and Jeff over at Bros, Bibles, and Beer are doing. These three guys are modeling what it means to have authentic, real, and often difficult conversations around a shared belief in God. Unlike many podcasts out there, the Bros all come from incredibly different spiritual backgrounds and viewpoints. The result: authentic conversations that are rarely tied up in a bow, but are often glorifying.

Today, we are getting real and talking about everything, from Angry God to Grief and Theology. Along the way, the Bros will share some of their favorite moments and discussions from the show, and how they have been stretched and their view of God has changed. Each of these gentlemen has been called to a different area of God’s mission, but they can still come together to produce an amazing show you should certainly check out. Today, we won’t shy away from the hard stuff, but in the end, we will all agree that God is good! I can’t wait for you to hear what Scott, Jeff, and Zach have to say!
