  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. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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.'"...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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,...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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,...
