This five-attribute kingdom preparedness list is the only list true believers need in these last days to prepare for and survive any situation, test or trial, and time of trouble. It will also ready them for the Kingdom of Yah.

We have covered four of the five attributes on the List of Kingdom Preparedness in four videos so far, and we have seen that these attributes are in fact part of an elite training program that equips believers for future work in Yah’s spiritual enterprise, the sole purpose of which is to harvest souls for the soon coming Kingdom of Yah. All of us who are awake were in fact awakened by Yah via someone who was actively working in the field by applying attribute 4: works. That is how we acquired attribute 1, hearing, before acquiring the other three attributes.
When you have gone through all the steps of this exclusive course, which all believers throughout time have gone through, you will have acquired hearing, obedience, and faith, which you will apply to the Kingdom work you do in the field. Yeshua himself possessed all these attributes and laid them out during his discourses while on earth. He possessed attribute 1, hearing:
28 I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me.
He also displayed attribute 2 quite prominently, that of obedience:
29 . . . For I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.
He exercised attribute 3, which is faith, and pointed out its importance:
21 “Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ it will happen.”
And all of these attributes fueled the fourth attribute he possessed, which is the Kingdom work he put in.
36 “But the testimony which I have is greater than the testimony of John; for the works which the Father has given Me to accomplish—the very works that I do—testify about Me, that the Father has sent Me.”
11 “Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because of the works themselves.”
Yeshua said that the Father gave him works to accomplish in the earth, and those works were a testimony. He urged his listeners to believe because of those works. So what were those works? John the Immerser certainly heard of them:
2 Now when John, while imprisoned, heard of the works of the Messiah, he sent word by his disciples. . . .
John wanted to know if Yeshua was the promised Messiah, to which Yeshua said this:
4 “Go and report to John what you hear and see: 5 the blind receive sight and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the good news preached to them.
Yeshua had the gifts of healing, resurrection, and performing various miracles. These are the gifts that were bestowed upon him by the Father. But he has given gifts to those of us alive and ready to work in the field today, and those gifts are various and sundry. All gifts, talents, skills, and abilities are still to be used the same way: to spread the message of the Kingdom, giving unbelievers, backsliders, and those still asleep in various religions the opportunity to possess attribute 1, hearing, for themselves.
Once you have acquired the first four attributes on the List of Kingdom Preparedness, you must thereafter take possession of the fifth and final attribute, and that attribute is:
Part 5: Prayer
Prayer is unique among the other attributes in that a portion of this particular attribute is given to you during the acquisition of attribute 1. You do have to pray for understanding when receiving Yah’s instructions after all. And that portion of attribute 5 is in use throughout the acquisition and application of the other attributes as well. While it is not earned up front and is yours by right, much like a loan you get from a bank or credit card funds, when you eventually go through the prior 4 attributes, you will earn enough to take full possession of attribute 5 by right.
Prayer is by far the most powerful of all the attributes, but its full power can only be experienced when you possess and apply all the other 4 attributes. You can see that the analogy of an employee training program has been in place throughout this series. First, future employees (believers) receive instructions from their employer (Yah), whom they obey, and exercise trust and faith in. Once fully trained and equipped for service, they are thereafter sent into the field to work using the various skills and abilities they have honed during stages 1 to 3.
That work is Kingdom work, which involves harvesting souls by waking others up with truth and allowing them to possess attribute 1. If they are his true sheep those souls will acquire the other three attributes and labor in the field as well so that others are awakened. This is how the Kingdom grows. But all this work isn’t expected to be free. All employers are expected to pay their employees, and that is where prayer comes in. You see, prayer, is really the bank of Yah.
And we know how banks work: you have to have some sort of income in order to make deposits into that bank so that you can withdraw funds at some future date. Well the income you earn is derived from your works:
12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.”
13 “Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
14 “If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.”
When we do the works that Yeshua did, that is the Kingdom work of spreading the good news and pointing souls to the path of righteousness and life, we can then receive payment, by asking for things in the name of the Savior. But of course, as righteous servants of the Most High, we will never ask anything outside of his will:
14 This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
—1 John 5
And we will be familiar with his will because it is laid out plainly in the law we read from each day, as commissioned in Joshua 1 verse 8. So, once we have heard Yah’s instructions and begun to obey them while exercising full faith, we then begin to serve Yah in the way of doing Kingdom work, which allows us to earn enough to make deposits in the prayer bank. And only those with loaded prayer bank accounts can make large withdrawals at any time:
29 Yah is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous.
12 The eyes of Yah watch over those who do right, and his ears are open to their prayers. But Yah turns his face against those who do evil.
—1 Peter 3
So the righteous are always in line with the Father’s will, and they will do the things that please him, as well as the works Yeshua did in this earth, that of spreading light to those in darkness that they might hear, obey, believe, and do Kingdom work themselves so they could build up their own prayer bank accounts in this earth. This is how our sincere prayers are answered, by having deposits in place. But those who do not hear, obey, exercise faith, and do works, will not be heard.
In fact, even if you lack one of the first four attributes, your prayers will fall on deaf ears, because to not hear, is sin; to disobey, is sin; to doubt is sin; and to refuse to work in the field by showing forth your righteousness as a testimony of Yah and his goodness in some way, is sin. And Yah, as stated in Scripture, is far from the wicked, and the inspired pen of Peter tells us that “Yah turns his face against those who do evil.”
Basically, if your prayers are not being heard, 1) You’re either praying for the wrong things outside of Yah’s will, which would mean you’re not familiar with all of his instructions or law, which embodies everything he is, or 2) You have gone off the path in some way and need to make a course correction by examining your fault and owning up to it in repentance. Either way, something is lacking. Once you do what you are supposed to, however, then you can pray your heart out day and night and all of those righteous prayers will be answered.
Yeshua put in so much Kingdom work that he was able to pray often, meaning he visited his prayer bank quite frequently:
12 It was at this time that He went off to the mountain to pray, and He spent the whole night in prayer to Elohim.
23 After He had sent the crowds away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone.
Yeshua even left us with a model prayer that lays out the structure of a proper payer, preceded by a few instructions on praying to Yah. Let’s examine what he had to say on this subject:
5 “When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.”
So, we already see that it is wrong to do like many Christians, so-called Jews, and Muslims do who like to close their eyes in public and pray for all to see and hear. This is wrong.
6 “But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.”
Praying so that others don’t even know you’re praying is the correct way to pray.
7 “And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words.”
We think that the more we repeat something the more it will be heard and Yah will give us what we’re asking for when we say that thing over and over again. This is also wrong. But we are told:
8 “So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
Yah already knows what you’re going to ask him when you pray, and many times he has granted the request of those who pray to him while they are yet praying:
21 While I was still speaking in prayer, then the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision previously, came to me in my extreme weariness about the time of the evening offering.
12 He said, “O Yah, the Elohim of my master Abraham, please grant me success today, and show lovingkindness to my master Abraham.”
15 Before he had finished speaking, behold, Rebekah who was born to Bethuel the son of Milcah, the wife of Abraham’s brother Nahor, came out with her jar on her shoulder.
Getting back to Yeshua’s instructions:
9 “Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.’ ”
We must praise the Father’s name in prayer.
10 “Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
We must pray according to his will and not ours. His will be done in our lives and the lives of those we’re praying for.
11 “Give us this day our daily bread.”
We should pray mainly for needs, which Yah provides to those who serve him.
12 “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.”
And we should pray for forgiveness, but not just for ourselves, but also for others! This is in keeping with loving our neighbors as ourselves. Note also that Yeshua refers to sin as a debt, which is another financial term.
13 And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.
We should acknowledge the Father’s supremacy as we ask for his deliverance from daily temptation and evil. Meaning, we must seek his protection and guidance as each day is renewed. For Yeshua himself said:
34 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Therefore, we must constantly look to Yah to aid us through those daily troubles by asking for that aid in prayer, day by day. Now, the bank of Yah, the currency of which is prayer, is not like the corrupt banks in our present world. And unlike our present banks, Yah’s bank does not lend what it does not own. Yah is rich with rewards, and he seeks to eliminate the debt of sin from our lives. But only those who acquire the first four attributes can fully obtain the fifth.
When you have fully obtained attribute 5, prayer, you will be in a position to move through life with a spiritual confidence fueled by power from on high you never dreamed of. Together with the faith of attribute 3, and the obedience you apply in keeping with the instructions you’ve heard while acquiring attribute 1, your works will be unstoppable, and Yah will truly be able to use you to destroy the Devil’s kingdom and build up his own before the eyes of the entire world. This is already happening as you view this video.
Many field workers who have acquired attribute 5 are rich in prayer, as their prayer bank accounts are fully stuffed, and many recognize this. This is why certain believers will ask prayer-rich believers to pray for them, particularly when they’re facing problems that are a bit more than they can handle and their own prayers aren’t doing much to aid them. Those with lighter pockets often look to those with pockets of the stuffed variety. The same holds true for prayer banks. That said, some events and crises do require concerted or national prayer.
When you build up your own account, providing that you’ve actually opened one with Yah by taking the steps listed in this series, you’ll grow your prayer deposits so much that you could be in prayer all night, for many nights, and have each prayer answered. So, these are the five attributes one needs in order to not only make it through this life, pass any test or trial, or survive any tribulation, but, ultimately, these attributes will cause you to walk into the Kingdom, as they pinpoint the key components of salvation found in Scripture and Yeshua’s own life.
And know that these attributes, including prayer, is mainly a lifelong employment and payment system that leads up to a full retirement package, which is . . . well, enjoying eternity. But all this is only one aspect of what I have learned is . . . The Economy of Yah. But that’s a topic for another day. With that, I hope this series has been of great benefit to you, and if it has, then all praises to the Most High Yah. Shalom!
