  1. THE WINE-CELLARS OF HIS LOVE

    Song of Solomon 2:4 - "He brought me into the wine-cellars and set love in order within me." -- You come from your delightful fellowship with the King (Jesus) intoxicated with love -- for you have tasted of the finest wine. The King has brought you into His wine-cellars where you will drink deeply of Him. The more we are swallowed up by His love, the more His light would come to the surface and shine -- the more we become "one" with Him. God calls Himself Light and Love -- let all things...
  2. THE FIERY FURNACE OF TRIALS

    "(Abraham) contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, 'So shall your descendants be.'" Romans 4:18 The enemy has launched a new version of an old "terrorist attack" on the Body of Christ in recent time, which contains a spirit of hopelessness for the future. This attack is to try and cause us to believe we don't even have a future (DESTINY). Well, the enemy is a liar. Contrary to whatever the enemy is trying to show you to...
  3. BEHOLD THE LAMB IN HIS GLORY

    These are days of DESTINY, filled with wonder and excitement. The awe of God is returning to the people of God, filling the heart of God's people with great expectation. Something new and revolutionary is at the door—but the question is not what is at the door, but Who. POINTING TO HIS PRESENCE We must come out of old mind-sets and into the mind of Christ where the blazing glory of His glorious presence literally rests upon us as we minister first unto God, and then receive His strategies...
  4. Scripture of The Day - Carriers Of His Glory

    "And He cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, "What, could ye not watch with Me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." - Matthew 26:40-41 Can you imagine Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane where all He wanted was someone to pray, stay awake with Him for one hour? Did you know that He is still looking for those people today? Are you willing to hang with Jesus for an hour? Are you...
  5. QUENCHING THE PHILISTINE SPIRIT

    "And Goliath cursed David by his gods. The Philistine also said to David, "Come to me, and I will give your flesh to the birds of the sky and the beasts of the field." - 1 Samuel 18:43,44 Goliath first used fiery darts against David (his words of negativity), believing that the negativity alone would cause David to cower down! Goliath's negative words were meant to be a "first-blow" against David to weaken him so that Goliath could move in quickly for the kill! For us today, a Philistine...
  6. Complementarianism vs. Egalitarianism...?

    Looking at the Bible verses that speak specifically to men/husbands or women/wives, I believe that the Bible maintains some clearly complementarian features. I believe that the common error in those teachings is when one mate attempts to strong-arm the other into conformity to them as if the former knew what the final product should look like. (In spiritual matters, we all "see through a glass darkly" [1 Corinthians 13:12].) Hyper-patriarchy is when a husband attempts to twist his wife's...
  7. being one and loving one another

    Allone versus Alone. "you will be one as we are one" (John 17:20-23). Although these verses seem to mean that we will be One with God/Jesus* (and will be whole), they also may mean that we will also be one with each other. If/when people are really One with Jesus/God (or if/when "touch" him spiritually) then they will also then all be One with each other through him (Jesus). (I.e. they are then also one with all other believers through him.) When we are One with him we see everyone as he...
  8. DIVINELY ORDAINED FUNCTION

    2 Timothy 1:9, "God...who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began." The term "holy calling" could also be interpreted "sacred DESTINY." The Lord considers it a sacred thing for us to enter into the divinely ordained function that He has destined for us. The prophet David once said, "Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written...
  9. Why we need to love one another

    One of the things I don't like about christianity/messianism is that it seems to so individualistic. It is made to seem that it is all just between us and God, and it is practiced like this by many. The bible itself even seems to support this position like for example the Psalmist saying how he is all alone and not one cares and God is his only hope. However, although it is true that the bible places the most weight on ones personal faith-relationship with God, it also does actually place a...
  10. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - October 18, 2020

    Are our eyes toward Jesus in our prayers, praises, public, and private duties? Is there an effectual impression on the heart. Are we walking in His purpose for our life -- ie. have we picked up our cross and are following Him? Do we intercede for those who are not yet believers? Is the love of Christ flowing through us into others. MEDITATION: When you discover who you are in Christ, you begin to measure your life and ministry by Jesus' model. You begin to want what...
  11. Praying The Psalms - October 17, 2020

    I bless the Lord at all times, I continually declare praise to Him. (Psalm 34:1) I magnify Jesus and exalt His name as I proclaim it to others who have ears to hear and rejoice. (Psalm 34:2,3) I seek the Lord and He answers me and delivers me from all my fears. (Psalm 34:4) The angel of the Lord encamps around me and rescues me from all my troubles as I call out to the Lord. (Psalm 34:6,7) I consider and see that the LORD is always good; I am blessed as I take refuge in Him. (Psalm...
  12. Seeking Communion – October 17, 2020

    "And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, he heareth us: and if we know that he hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him." -- 1 John 5:14,15 You cannot ask with confidence until there is a perfect union between you and God, as there was always perfect union between God and Jesus. The moment you pray you find that the heavens are opened -- having a fidelity and confidence to believe that He...
  13. Daily Devotional – October 16, 2020

    Isaiah 40:31, "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." Many people have been in transition; they have been healing and they have been birthing. Many Believers are going to walk into the long-awaited inheritance of things that the Lord promised them – things that belong to them but they've been unable to obtain. Even in the place of rest, refreshing, and...
  14. Daily Devotional - October 13, 2020

    Revelation 4:1 - "After this, I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, "Come up here, and I will show you..." There is a constant and continual (unbroken) communion that we have been invited into. There is ascending and descending (John 1:51) always happening as we dwell with Him and allow a habitation of His Holy Spirit to be a river of life that flows to us and through us. The indwelling of God...
