We are a ministry consisting out of local people, operating from a local base, but with a global mentality. We believe in signs and wonders and endeavour to experience God’s miracle working power in every gathering. We have a passion for the lost! We endeavour to seek His kingdom first and His righteousness. . . We want to have clean hands, a pure heart, refuse to tell lies or bow before idols!
“Upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom…”
Foundation scripture: Matt. 16v18, 19: Upon this rock I build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it , and I give you the keys of the Kingdom . . .
KOGMI Intercessorry Department
- An intercessor is a person who by calling or by nature chooses to be a mediator on behalf of those who cannot intervene for themselves. Intercessors make requests, urge, plead, beg, counsel, discuss, risk, sacrifice, and make war on issues relating to the weaker ones, and thus they have an impact on the final outcomes for those they serve.
- There is a difference between a person who is called an intercessor and a person who prays. Any person can pray, but not all praying people are intercessors. The opposite is true also – an intercessor may live his entire life and live to make only one great act of intercession. The differences of an intercessor are subtle – hidden in the life and heart behind the prayer. There are many examples of intercessors in the Bible, and they walked with the favor to impact and change God’s heart.
1) Moses was willing to be blotted out of God’s book. (Ex 32:32)
2) Abraham was willing to suffer God’s possible displeasure by negotiating Him down to 10 godly men in Sodom & Gomorrah. (Genesis 18:22)
3) When king David disobeyed by taking a census, he was willing to be destroyed in order to seek safety for his people. (1 Chron 21:17)
4) Daniel was willing to talk with God when He was very angry. (Dan 9:16)
5) Jesus was willing to become sin and lay down His life so that others could find forgiveness. (Isa 53:12)
KINGDOM ALIGNMENT & CONSEQUENT ADVANCEMENT TEACHING
Immediately after the presence of God was poured out upon the men and women in the upper room, they began the great commission. The Holy Spirit had transformed them into bold witnesses that the most powerful men in the world would stand in awe of them. Without the Holy Spirit we can accomplish nothing. With Him, we can overcome the greatest darkness and any resistance to the cause of His Kingdom. Great change came upon ordinary people that denied Him, others abandoned Him. Yet what was it that so dramatically changed them? It was the awesome grace of God!
Grace is the ability of God to do what ordinarily could not be done. They were the recipients of “Great Grace.” Acts 4:33 (NKJV) ‘And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of theLord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all. The word “great” here is the Greek word mega ” from which we derive the commonly used word “ mega ”, meaning very large in size or proportion. These ordinary people had mega grace. The church must not settle for being average any more. Our commission is not an average commission.
Kingdom of God Ministries International is a non-profit organization established in 2012. KOGMI was established by Martin and Dawn Burke following a God given instruction to preach good news to the poor, bind up the broken hearted & proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour through missionary and community development programs aimed at equipping and restoring families, communities, cities and nations.
While doing the aforementioned with the express view of seeing to the community’s spiritual needs, it became apparent that the communities they wished to serve required more than just spiritual nourishment, upliftment and empowerment. The answer to addressing the spiritual and sociological needs was the establishment of Kingdom of God Ministries International (KOGMI).
KOGMI’s Vision is the moral restoration of every family unit and community, through sustained intervention programmes. To this end KOGMI consist of community members with the common goal to instil accountability in our communities for the current and future status thereof.
KOGMI will achieve this through a series of planned and monitored interventions using communal mechanisms such as sport, performing art, education, networking opportunities, substance abuse prevention, early intervention and awareness training and outreach programmes to the street children and offenders in correctional facilities. Our client base is street children, family units, offenders and communities seeking restoration and whom are ready to embrace accountability for their communities
