Omega Church & Ministries Center has issued a clarion call to all men: Man up! What does that mean? It is time for men to stand up and take their rightful places in the home, in the church, in the community, and in this world at large. While the beliefs supporting this proclamation are listed below, you can read the entire "Man Up Manifesto" here.
Consider Joshua 6:5. Once the trumpet sounded - once the call came forth - the walls of the enemy came down flat and the men walked up straight. This is my prayer for the men of the Church, that every weight, hindrance, and bondage would be removed in the name of Jesus so that they may walk upright and straight in the calling & power given them of the Lord.
The call has been given. Who will answer? Who will rise up and have their crooked paths made straight before the Lord? The choice is yours to make. Don't be found MIA (missing in action).
In addition to the Man Up Manifesto, other messages have been listed below to edify and encourage.
There is a necessity for men to loose themselves from that which disempowers them and take their place in the spiritual war against wickedness.
What does it mean for God to be our "Father" and why is that important?
God is a Commander and He is looking to delegate His authority to commanders.
What is a catamite and why has this become a plague amongst men in these days?
You MUST Be Strong!
God is calling you to rebuild the walls.
Anointed for Battle
Why we have to be prepared to go on the offensive in this war against the enemy.
What is the Biblical definition of being a man and what attributes should he have?
Biblical, Godly Authority
Throughout His word, God proclaims that the authority ordained by Him is reflected in patriarchy.
Where Is Mine Honor
Every spiritual problem we deal with has its roots in not knowing how to relate to God as our Father.
The End of Men
Why are men these days predominately portrayed in the media a buffoons or dimwits?
