What is 3° and where did the name come from?
The name was given to one of our leaders during a time of prayer as we were preparing to move downtown. Shortly after that, Pastor Steve was lead to Exodus when Moses asked God to show him His Glory. 3 Degrees then became, for us, 3 Degrees of God’s glory. With the following scriptures, our mandate as a ministry from God was solidified. These 3 things represent what we want people to experience when they come through our doors.
Then he said to Him, “If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here. For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us?”
Who are we? The people of God
What are we? A work of God
Where are we? A place of God
And he said, “Please, show me Your glory.” Then He said, “I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.”
Grace: James 4:6 ~ But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “ God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
Mercy: Psalm 107:1 ~ Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
Repentance: Romans 2:4 ~ Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?
The Manifestation of His Spirit
Moses took his tent and pitched it outside the camp, far from the camp, and called it the tabernacle of meeting. And it came to pass that everyone who sought the LORD went out to the tabernacle of meeting which was outside the camp. So it was, whenever Moses went out to the tabernacle, that all the people rose, and each man stood at his tent door and watched Moses until he had gone into the tabernacle. And it came to pass, when Moses entered the tabernacle, that the pillar of cloud descended and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the LORD talked with Moses. All the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the tabernacle door, and all the people rose and worshiped, each man in his tent door.
Natural Realm in signs and wonders: Mark 16:20 ~ And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs.
Soulish Realm in intellectual revelation: 3 John 2 ~ Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
Spiritual Realm in the gifts of the Spirit: 1 Cor. 12:7 ~ But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all. 3 sets of 3 gifts of the Spirit: Power gifts, Revelation gifts, and Gifts of Inspiration.
Everything we do as a ministry is founded on scripture and birthed in prayer. 3 is God’s number of completion and He is faithful to complete the work He has started in us!
