Over 20 years ago, the Scriptures John 18:1-2 really spoke to the founder of Kidron Brook Ministries. That passage of Scripture reads, “When Jesus had spoken these words (a conversation with His Father, He was then empowered), He went out with His disciples over the brook Kidron where there was a garden (Gethsemane), which He and His disciples entered. And Judas, who betrayed Him also knew of the place; for Jesus often met there with His disciples.” As Pastor Zach served for many years in ministry, the time fully came when GOD sent him and Pastor Anissa out with the vision and mission of Kidron Brook Ministries.
Kidron Brook Ministries' first mandate … "To Make Disciples"
The disciples spent a great deal of time with Jesus. He was teaching them every step of the way. Every moment with the Master was a time to gain knowledge. As He showed them quiet places to pray, He was teaching them the source of His power. So each time they crossed over the brook Kidron they were being “made” disciples by the Master, like steel being made into sword in the fire. On this final night (John 18), the process was over. So each time we come to Kidron Brook Ministries we are being made disciples!
Kidron Brook Ministries' second mandate …"Destroy Idols"
Also to fulfill the mandate of destroying idols, 2 Kings 23:12 reads, “And the altars that were on the top of the upper chamber of Ahaz, which the kings of Judah had made, and the altars which Manasseh had made in the two courts of the house of the Lord, did the king beat down, and brake them down from thence, and cast the dust of them into the brook Kidron.” Josiah was a good king of Judah after a long list of bad ones. Even though the Kingdom was divided, he sought the Lord with a tender heart and was humble. He realized that their ancestors did not do it right and wanted to correct the wrongs. God loved him for that tenderness. He then was motivated to tear down all the altars and idols the children of Israel worshipped. He crushed and pulverized them and dumped the idols and dumped their remains in the torrid waters of the brook Kidron never to be seen again. So in fulfilling this mandate, our purpose is to destroy all idols by teaching from the firm foundation of the Word of GOD!
Kidron Brook Ministries' third mandate …"Rally the Violent Takers"
God recently mandated the ministry to rally “Violent Takers” for the Kingdom of GOD! Violent Takers are those who will go out and violently stand against the kingdom of darkness, and take back that which were violently taken by the enemy. Whether it’s the depression amongst clergymen, lost family members, broken marriages, desolate communities, despondent businesses, miss-education, misrepresented/muted politics, insufficient finances, unfruitful in the arts and entertainment ... we're "taking back" all for the Kingdom of GOD! Aggressively and forthrightly, we take back that which has been taken! We also violently take the Word of GOD to a world who has not heard - outside the walls of church building!
Isaiah 42:22 reads, "But this is a people robbed and plundered; All of them are snared in holes, And they are hidden in prison houses; They are for prey, and no one delivers; For plunder, and no one says, “Restore!” Also, in Matthew 11:12 the Scripture reads, "And from the days of John the Baptist "UNTIL NOW" the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force."
Well, we at Kidron Brook Ministries shout RESTORE and refuse to allow the mandate we've been given be taken, and the Kingdom of GOD to violently suffer. Instead, we are GOD's Violent Takers! We seek the Father with sincere Spiritual and Truthful Worship and Prayer; they are our most violent weapons!
We thank you so much for visiting our site. Our prayer is that: i) you be made a disciple that is SENT OUT to "take territory for the Kingdom of GOD", and ii) all idols in your life, both self-imposed and realized, are completely destroyed! Be sober and vigilant!
