"He reached down from on high and took hold of me; He drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the LORD was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because he delighted in me." Psalm 18: 16-19
Mashah is a Hebrew word meaning to draw out of the water. In fact, Pharaoh's daughter named the baby she drew out of the water Moses because his name is like this Hebrew word for drawing out. In Psalm 18, verses 16-19, we see a description of what God does for us when we are in need of help.
God has a destiny and rich inheritance for every one of His children. The enemy of our souls (otherwise known as Satan or Lucifer) wants to hold us back from living out God's purposes for us. He is able to gain entry into our souls by the way we respond to the events in our lives. He gains legal rights to come into our lives when we agree with him by our words or actions. The Mashah Ministry helps identify the way one unwittingly opens the door of their soul to the enemy, bringing light to the darkness. Truth is imparted, and the enemy's legal rights are nullified. Ministry receivers will find their lives transformed as they learn to identify the enemy's tactics and use the truths they receive from Jesus to bring them into freedom. Hurts are healed and people are empowered to love and serve the Lord with their whole
Our mandate comes from Isaiah 61 and follows the call that Jesus had on His life:
"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor." Isaiah 61:1-3
Our Mission Statement: We minister God's love and truths to people to heal their hurts and empower them to love and serve the Lord with their whole being.
Our Vision Statement: Mashah Ministry: Journey into Destiny purposes to raise up children, youth, and adults who walk in freedom and wholeness through the redemptive power of Jesus Christ.
Since we live in a fallen world, every Christian would benefit from this ministry. The challenges and difficulties of the past leave emotional scars within us and impact our present lives. During ministry time, the ministry receivers will gain knowledge and understanding of who they are in Christ and areas of their belief system that may not align with biblical Christianity. Hurts, lies and bad decisions will be identified so that inner or emotional healing can take place. The enemy's legal rights will be taken away and the truth will be imparted that will empower individuals to live their life in total freedom, the freedom that Christ won at Calvary.
Inner healing is a ministry that deals with our inner reactions to events in our lives. The objective is to identify poor decisions or patterns of behavior, heal past hurts, correct erroneous mindsets, cleanse from sin, remove the enemy's legal rights to our lives and impart freedom, joy, and power.
The people and circumstances in our lives impact the way we respond to and perceive our present and future. Perceptions and beliefs are impacted by wounds and sin. Such things as bad decisions, vows, judgments, unforgiveness, or lies believed, allow the enemy of our souls to have power over our lives. The enemy keeps us from seeing clearly and realizing our potential and destiny. We must break the chains of the past so that we can move forward in a healthy manner, which opens the door to our God-given destiny.
A typical ministry session usually lasts 1.5 hours and includes one ministry receiver and two ministers. At least one minister will be of the same gender as the receiver. The session is covered in prayer and is directed by the Holy Spirit. The object is to help the receiver grow in likeness to Christ and be empowered to walk out his/her God-given destiny. Through listening prayer, Jesus helps the receiver to identify past hurts, erroneous ideas/lies
