  1. Seeking Communion – May 5, 2021

    The "Giants of Intimidation" have risen before many of the people of God -- representing circumstances from waiting for the breakthrough, to pressing issues, to demonic attacks, to accusations, to hopelessness. The common denominator of these giants, whether the circumstances before the people of God are hard, discouraging and trying, or the breakthrough has begun and the change seems overwhelming – the purpose of these giants arising is to bring intimidation and to stop the people of God...
  2. EMBRACING SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT

    Only with God-given discernment can we tell apart the good and evil influences that surround us. We often come up against "demonic influences". This influence is a spiritual force that twists and taints and pollutes God's ways. It is like a spider web, and people get stuck -- writhing in their captivity, they act out of a "web mentality". Religious spirits endeavor to interfere with the free flow of the Holy Spirit in the lives of Believers. They can be hard to discern precisely because they...
  3. Three Deceptions That Can Derail You From Your Destiny

    Philippians 3:17 -- "Brethern, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us." Paul faced a major problem in the first century. False teachers had slipped into the Church. The apostle warned the Philippians, and us by extension, to recognize the differences between a true man of God and a deceptive teacher or prophet. Without any sense of false humility, Paul declared that both his vision and his spiritual attitude were examples for us to...
  4. SEEKING THROUGH ARDENT ZEAL AND INTENSE EXERTION

    Matthew 11:12 - "And from the days of John the Baptist until the present time, the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force (as a precious prize - a share in the heavenly kingdom is sought with most ardent zeal and intense exertion)." The violence of the Kingdom is not physical violence but focused earnestness, a deeply passionate pursuit of God that enables Christ's followers never to give up in pursuing their Christ calling regardless of the...
  5. Praying The Psalms - Psalms 60 and 61

    I rejoice as God speaks to me in His holiness; with His help I will do mighty things as He treads down my adversaries. Psalm 60:6,12 You are my tower of strength, O Lord, for You have been a refuge for me as I dwell in Your presence forever. Psalm 61:3,4 I will abide in Your Word forever and sing praises to Your name, Lord Jesus, as I fulfill my vows day after day. Psalm 61:7,8
  6. LIBERATED OUT OF EXCUSES INTO COURAGE

    Luke 18: 1-8 - Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart saying: "There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, 'Get justice for me from my adversary.' And he would not for a while, but afterward he said within himself, 'Though I do not fear God nor regard man, yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.'"...
  7. Seeking Communion - April 28, 2021

    He is asking you to lay down all of the hindrances – all that you have been holding on to, and all that man would try to wrap you in; for He is a collector of grave clothes. They are leftovers and He wants to take them off of you. He will take off all reproach, so that you will only experience approaching His Throne of Grace, in full assurance. DRAWING YOU INTO HIS PROVISION He has not come to condemn, but He has come with a drawing heart – a heart to draw you deeper, and deeper and deeper...
  8. RESPONDING TO THE CALL OF THE RIVER

    Matthew 3:13-17 - 13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan [River], to be baptized by him. 14 But John tried to prevent Him [vigorously protesting], saying, “It is I who need to be baptized by You, and do You come to me?” 15 But Jesus replied to him, “Permit it just now; for this is the fitting way for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John permitted [it and baptized] Him. 16 After Jesus was baptized, He came up immediately out of the water; and behold, the heavens were...
  9. Seeking Communion - April 25, 2021

    Be aware that the enemy would come with distraction after distraction only to rob you, and deposit within you despondency and numbness putting you in a sense of shock and longing -- not know which way to go -- to the left or to the right. In times of trouble, call in His presence, for where you are His presence is. Do you not understand 'The Hope of Glory' that is within you? Do not look to the exterior. Do not look outward. Don't look around. Look in. Let His presence, let His strength,...
  10. 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...
  11. Seeking Communion - April 21, 2021

    "He that believeth on me....out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." - John 7:38 The very life of the risen Christ in us is moving us to do His will. We are partakers of the divine nature to manifest the life of Jesus to the world. "Others mocking said, 'these men are full of new wine.'" - Acts 2:13 "New wine" - a new order, new inspiration, new manifestation, a new creation. It is God's mind to fill us with that wine in 2021, to make us ready to burst forth with new rivers,...
  12. 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...
  13. DEFEATING THE GIANT IN FRONT OF US

    As many are facing giants today, we need to learn from David -- a man who knew how to handle giants. As God gives us the spirit of David in 2021, He wants us to be personally offended at anything or anyone that keeps us from fulfilling His CALLING on our lives. Saul and the army of Israel were all controlled by fear and their hearts melted. But David said, "Let no one lose heart on account of this Philistine; your servant will go and fight him." (1 Samuel 17:32) Saul had even tried to talk...
  14. UNLOCKING GOD'S PROMISES IN YOUR LIFE

    The key to unlocking the fulfillment of God's promises in your life is learning to decree God's will! While it seems simple, decrees of the Lord give voice to and establish His will. These Godly decrees are like arrows of accuracy that break through every obstacle you face. By understanding the power of His word, His purpose for you, and your authority as a king and priest, you will be able to Decree His will, with boldness for breakthrough to your place of blessing. FIRST - UNDERSTAND HIS...
  15. Seeking Communion - April 18, 2021

    But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus" - (Ephesians 2:4-6). As our minds are renewed and our faith grows, we take these realities as fact and live in the light of them. We come to know that we are above our enemies and refuse to walk in the flesh realm but...
