Discipleship Training for Ambassadorship
DTA is a training school movement with one thing in mind; to proclaim the coming of the King. DTA stands for “Discipleship Training for Ambassadorship.” If you said yes to Jesus, you said yes to being a student and a leader. Our call as followers of this man named Jesus is to obey His commands and to represent Him to the rest of the world. We do not always get that right and we find that the reason for that is a lack of true discipleship. If we do not know how to obey, can we indeed obey Him? This name, DTA comes with a two-fold message and with it, a two-fold training. This training helps us to understand the foundation of our faith and what we have been called to be and do. We teach and train to walk in our role during our stay in this present age as ambassadors.
Discipleship is a key element to establishing the right foundation for our relationship with God. When Jesus walked the earth, He came to reconcile the broken relationship with the Father. He showed us how to live a life according to His Father’s ways and chose men to follow Him during this process. Not too long before Jesus was taken up to sit on the right hand of power, He gave a commission to all His disciples to “Go and make disciples”, to “baptize them”, and to “teach them to obey”. These things were written for our instruction and through good discipleship, we can begin to see more professing believers live in obedience.
If the initial foundation is not set properly before the building of the house, it could cost you your house down the road. It is vitally important that the foundation be laid properly at the beginning. By understanding the foundation of our faith, every person will have a strong and firm beginning. But it starts with the basic, elementary principles of the teachings of Christ. Only one place in the scriptures do you find the foundational elements of the faith listed out. This is found in Hebrews 6:1-2. John the baptizer came on the scene preaching this foundation and Jesus came proclaiming it after John was martyred. This foundation is what the Apostles preached and died preaching.
We are all called to lay a foundation. This is our number one purpose as disciple-makers. We lay no other foundation except that which has been laid, Christ Jesus. But we find that the phrase “Jesus is the rock”, or “Jesus is the foundation” has taken on so many meanings that we have gone so far from the basic foundation of the faith. It is time to get back to the proper rock. This foundation starts with understanding the Gospel that Jesus preached; The Gospel of the Kingdom.
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.2 Corinthians 5:20
A half gospel will produce a half-hearted believer and to be honest, a half gospel is not the gospel. The full gospel is what will establish the proper anchor, the proper focus, and thus the proper foundation in the heart and mind. The ultimate goal of every disciple is to become an ambassador for the King. One who is sent out from kingdom to another in order to proclaim good news. The good news is that our King has won the battle and the rights to this current rule and He is coming soon to take the land, establish His kingdom, and rule over all the nations. It was for this reason that Christ came the first time, to proclaim the good news to the poor. This is what we are commanded to do as His followers.
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners; to proclaim the favorable year of the LORDIsaiah 61:1-2
So we see that a basic establishment is important for the building process to begin and the building itself will be firm to withstand the coming storm. One without the other is not effective and both are needed to be effective. Anyone coming to the Father, must come with a belief and an anchored hope of the coming reign of King Jesus if they wish to be ready to endure until the end.
