What is The Lord’s Heritage Reversal Ministry?
We are an Internet-hosted, Bible-based, Christian, quiver-full minded, sterilization reversal ministry. We exists to help married couples who have closed off the fruit of the womb to restore their fertility to God’s Control. We are committed to share the blessings the Lord has given to us, in service to others. We serve on the conviction that we should bear one another’s burdens.
As Christians we believe in:
The Trinity - God the father, Jesus Christ the son, and the Holy Spirit
The gift of Salvation through Jesus’ blood atonement.
The Virgin birth, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior!
The absolute authority, inerrancy, and sufficiency of Scripture, as God's Holy Word that is infallible.
Our Doctrinal Beliefs are:
1. Men are the pastors, deacons and bishops.
1 Timothy 3:1- 12
This is a true saying, If a man desires the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. Likewise must the deacons be grave, not double tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless. Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things. Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
2. Men have headship over the woman, their home and are the final authority.
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
Colossians 3: 18
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
1 Peter 3:1
Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
3. The Bible is the only true Word.
2 Timothy 3:16
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
4. Salvation is a free gift given to those who believe in Christ.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
1 Timothy 1:15
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
2 Timothy 2:10
Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
5. Heaven is not reach by works but by faith in Jesus Christ.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
6. Children are a blessing and never a curse; we should not try to limit our conception.
And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother's wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother. And the thing which he did displeased the Lord: wherefore he slew him also.
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
Psalm 138: 13- 15
For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
7. Be Fruitful and Multiply
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
What scripture is The Lord’s Heritage Reversal Ministry based on?
Genesis 1:28 “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
Psalms 127:3-5 “Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.”
Psalms 139: 13-15 “For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.”
Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”
Galatians 6:2 “Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.”
Colossians 4:6 “Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.”
The Servant Team currently consists of the Sellers, Davis, and Bucklin families. We are committed to this cause and started up this ministry because we felt a leading from the Lord to assist like minded families to achieve the wholeness they lost in sterilization. We are not related to or affiliated with any other ministry or church organization.
Restoration is not about having babies, though we all agree that is a blessing we would all gladly accept. What it is about is restoring our bodies to the way God designed them to be. We do not believe in helping or hindering fertility beyond the natural and restorative or corrective measures. This means no birth control. We are a quiver full ministry which means we are open to accepting as many or as few blessings (children) as the Lord sees fit to bless us with!
The Lord’s Heritage Ministry Finances:
Donations are accepted as often as given. We do not require a certain amount; we want people to give as the Lord leads. One hundred percent of all donations go to the reversal funds as specified. Donations received without specification will be split equally between the two current funds, unless there is no one waiting on a fund then all will be applied to the waiting family.
All administrative expenses come from the Servant Team families.
We accept checks, money orders, and cash via mail and also electronic donations via popmoney. We are not a 501c3 non-profit organization. Your donation is not tax deductible. Finances to become a 501c3 non-profit organization are so costly that it would affect our ability to keep 100% of all donations going towards reversal funds. Donations are required at least monthly from families that are on the funding list and also from those families who are seeking funding (applying for funding). Exceptions may be made for those in need, but only after they have contacted the Servant Team about their circumstances and have obtained approval. People found abusing this will be removed from the funding list.
Donations are applied to the ledger the date that they are received. You may not make 1 donation for multiple months. If you make a donation for $20.00 in August, that donation will be for August only. You may not indicate that donation for multiple months, e.g. July, August, and Sept. All donations for the current month must be received by the last day of that month. If they are not received by the last day of the month the Servant Team will contact you and request a donation by the 10th day of the next month. If no donation is received and you have not received an approval of hardship exemption you may be removed from the waiting or applications list. Donations are non-refundable.
To receive a funding application you must be a part of our discussion group which is found on Facebook. To be part of the group you must first fill out a Subscription application.( Note: this is not the funding application this only allows you access to our private group.) Once approved to the group you must send and introduction, and a donation before receiving your funding application.( Please: refer to the welcome letter for more details.) These steps are necessary to insure your true desire and commitment to this ministry.
Anyone requesting financial assistance must be married and have their spouses approval to fill out an application. Anyone seeking assistance has to do so by requesting an application from the Servant Team Applications Managers who are Sam and Angie Sellers. Once the Servant Team has reviewed your application, completed a phone interview with head ship of the home, received the pastoral reference letter back, and had the time to prayerfully consider your request, you will be notified. Please let us know when you subscribe if you will be requesting assistance so an application can be sent to you. Applications are processed in the order in which they were received. For your application to be considered for funding you must be actively donating to the ministry Upon being accepted to the funding list then you agree to make at least one donation per month until you have your surgery. Being placed on the funding list does not mean that you will be funded or that you will never be removed. Once your surgery is complete you also agree to donate for at least 6 months to qualify for your deposit to be returned to you.You also agree to submit a testimony and all original receipts needed if these items are not received this will also be cause for you to forfeit your deposit.
If you are currently a member of another reversal group or ministry and are on their funding list and would like to seek assistance with TLH you will be required to notify the head of that ministry of your intentions. You will also need to willfully remove yourselves from both their funding list and membership if approved by TLH so to avoid families being double listed. This is an unfair practice, that inhibits others time and need for reversals. If you are interested in funding from TLH and are in the application process with another reversal ministry we will not open an application with you until that application has been processed and decided upon. We are not here to compete with other groups or ministries, and out of respect for them will not enter into these questionable practices.
If you are accepted to the waiting list and are funded, you will have 1 year from the completion of your fund to use the moneys raised for your surgery. If you do not have your surgery in 1 years time, the funds raised and designated to you will be considered forfeited and will go to the current fund on the waiting list from which they came. Vas funds to the current vas fund, and tubal funds to the current tubal fund unless otherwise decided in which then it will go to the longest listed fund or if there is no one on the one list then all the funds will go to the list in which there is a person waiting to be funded.
TLH is committed to paying 100% of reversal cost for approved members accepted to the funding list. We recognize that many doctors require a deposit at the time your appointment is made. As such the following is our policy concerning deposits. Deposits will be paid by patients in advance directly to the doctor of their choice. TLH will make payment to the doctor by forwarding the balance in your completed fund, minus the deposit amount, provided that you have complied with policies and procedures and have not been removed from funding. After your surgery is completed and we have received 1) your original receipt and 2) a notice from your doctor that your balance is paid in full,3) six months of donations after your surgery 4) written testimony to the ministry,then we will forward the balance of the fund to you as a refund of your deposit amount. To reiterate, we will only send you a refund of your deposit if we receive your original receipt, a notice from the doctor stating that your balance is paid in full, 6 months worth of donations after surgery, and your written testimony. If we receive notice from the doctor's office that your account has a balance owed this will result in forfeiture of your deposit. Unpaid fees remaining on your doctor's office account and any costs to the ministry for having to make payment on your behalf will be deducted from the deposit amount. TLH does not cover any surgical or specialist cost beyond your basic reversal expenses. If you are required to see a specialist for a consult (cardiologist, neurologist, etc.), these costs are at your expense. If you have additional procedures done (cyst removal, reconstruction work, tumor removals, physical exam, etc.), these are at your expense. The need/use of any additional medications, blood bank usage, or other extra cost is at your expense.
Occasionally the servant Team may feel led to allow a fundraiser to help fund our reversal families on the funding list. If you are interested in heading up a fundraiser you must receive written permission from the servant Team before you can associate the ministries name to it. All fund raisers must obtain approval. One hundred percent of profit from any TLH approved fundraisers must go to the reversal funds! These proceeds will be split equally between the two current funds or as designated by the head of the fundraiser on approval of the Servant Team.
Service Call :
Twice a year, we will have a service call also known as roll call. The purpose of this is to encourage those to support the families on the funding list. At this time every family on TLH is to show their commitment to the ministry by way of a small donation. You will have two weeks to verbally state your commitment and send in your small donation. If by the end of the two weeks we have not received anything by email and or donation you will be removed from our group. The only ones exempt from this are those who are currently on the funding list. Because they are already committed and required to donate. Those on the funding list who do not donate every month will be removed from their position on the funding list .
Subscriptions & Discussion List:
We expect that people will be treated with love, compassion and honorable behavior at all times. We encourage everyone to remember this in their speech and writings. We reserve the right to edit or reject any post that we deem inappropriate, this includes testimonies that may contain personal materials that others may take offense to. We want to hear your story, but please remember your audience! TLH is family forum and content must be suitable for all ages!
We do not tolerate spamming! If you are caught collecting addresses for your personal gain, and/or soliciting members you will be immediately removed from all lists, including funding, without warning. If you wish to advertise your personal business you may attach a small note (fewer than 10 words) or a link, to your signature line but that is it! Any thing felt to be unacceptable will be edited out during moderation.
This ministry is meant for the aid and support of married couples. By Biblical definition we only recognize marriage as that which was instituted by God.
Subscription requests that do not fit ministry criteria or are found to not be like minded with the ministry and it's purpose may be denied. This is at the sole discretion of the Servant Team.
Conversations should be kept on topic. Occasionally we may allow a strand of conversation related to raising children, or family topics such as home schooling or Godly submission to head ship. These strands will be at the moderators discretion and will be kept short.
Examples of appropriate threads of conversations are:
Questions and answers about sterilization and reversals.
Questions and information in regard to doctors
Tubal ligation syndrome, and post vasectomy syndrome
General fertility questions
Testimonies of salvation, sterilization, and reversals
Testimonies of convictions and praises of growth
Fellowship and encouragement
Supporting each other in Godly submission
TLH will post members testimonies in regard to doctors, this is only an example of this persons experience. It does not imply or state that those experiences and results are standard or to be expected. TLH will also list doctors contact information of whom we are familiar with, again this does not imply any endorsement or speak to their skill and ability. This information should be obtained directly from the doctor that you select to work with. The doctors selected for surgeries are of your own choice. This is a selection made at your own risk. The Lord's Heritage does not endorse any physician and thereby does not claim any responsibility for their procedures or results of those procedures.
Any and all testimonies, pictures or items that you submit for website purposes become the property of the ministry upon receipt. These testimonies, pictures or items may be used at the Servant Team's discretion for private or public purposes within TLH or its website, regardless of your membership status.
