  1. DISPLACING THE ENEMY

    Mark 3:27 NLT - "For who is powerful enough to enter the house of a strong man like satan and plunder his goods? Only someone even stronger someone who could tie him up and then plunder his house" (Matthew 12:29). Christ in you is the one who is stronger and able to overcome. This is not the only place where the Lord plainly described a man as a "house" or habitation of the evil one. In the same chapter, He speaks of the unclean spirit cast out and, finding no other habitation, says, "I...
  2. Scripture Of The Day – April 20, 2022

    1 Kings 19:9 "Then he came there to a cave and lodged there; and behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and He said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?" Elijah had come to Horeb and lodged there in a cave. Soon, the word of the Lord came to him, “what are you doing here Elijah?” Three of the most important questions God can ever ask us are: What are you doing here? How did your service to me become so dry and desolate? When was it that you left your first love? Isaiah...
  3. TURNING THE TIDE

    Luke 11:13, "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him." In the story of the prodigal son where the father killed the fattened calf and gave the returned son the signet ring and the robe -- the elder brother was hugely upset and complaining. The father's response to the elder son was, "All I have is yours..." Luke 15:31, "And he said to him, 'Son, you are always with me, and all...
  4. Scripture Of The Day – April 19, 2022

    Ezekiel 47:9 - "And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes." THE WATERS, WHICH REPRESENT WHAT GOD HAS DEPOSITED WITHIN US, MUST REACH THE SEA, WHICH REPRESENTS THE MASSES OF HUMANITY WHO ARE WITHOUT CHRIST. GOD HAS PUT SOMETHING INSIDE OF US AND HE WANTS IT TO FLOW OUT. THE MORE IT...
  5. MOVING FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH

    Stand firm and do not be moved! As believers, we are rooted and grounded in His magnificent love. Because Jesus overwhelms our heart with His love so that we can nourish the lives of others with it, we are established in His love and we can have a peace that passes natural understanding. And we have COURAGE, the depth of which is confidence in the Lord – we become a risk-taker and get out of the boat and walk on the water. "And that Christ will make His home in your hearts, through...
  6. Scripture Of The Day – April 18, 2022

    Luke 10:38-42 - "As Jesus and his disciples went on their way, he came to a certain village where a woman named Martha welcomed Him in her home. She had a sister named Mary, who sat down at the feet of the Lord and listened to His teaching. Martha was upset over all the work she had to do; so she came and said, 'Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to come and help me!' The Lord answered her, 'Martha, Martha! You are worried and...
  7. MOVING IN A NEW DIRECTION

    To secure our attention and place us on the pathway God desires, there are strategies that He employs that are very effective. As much as we are not to be ignorant of satan's devices (2 Cor. 2:11), we must be even more knowledgeable of the ways of the Lord (Ps. 25:4). Knowing God's ways will result in us experiencing His mighty acts (Ps. 103:7). Three ways God works to move us in a new direction: DISRUPTION OF OUR PLANS When stuck at an impasse, it is a natural tendency to return to...
  8. Scripture Of The Day – April 17, 2022

    John 15:12-15 - "This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you." Jesus says, "You are My friends if you do whatever I command you." It is easy to...
  9. REDEFINING THE CHURCH

    "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." - 1 Peter 1:3 The Lord is redefining His Church and calling them out of a place of stagnancy and redundancy into a place of passion. Have you ever felt as if you were running around in circles, going through churchy motions but getting nowhere? When we lose sight of His Kingdom, our lives can be...
  10. Scripture Of The Day – April 16, 2022

    “Rise up and shine, for your light has come. The shining-greatness of the Lord has risen upon you. For see, darkness will cover the earth. Much darkness will cover the people. But the Lord will rise upon you, and His shining-greatness will be seen upon you. Nations will come to your light. And kings will see the shining-greatness of the Lord on you." Isaiah 60:1-3 "Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars...
  11. UNDERSTANDING OUR RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD

    Many think righteousness equates to following the law, but this is a religious mindset. Living under the Law leads to death. If you live by the Law, the Law will require righteousness from you that you are unable to fulfill on your own, putting you in a position where you will be judged by that Law, and the Law is an unforgiving judge. But the good news is that Jesus came so that you may have life and life more abundantly. Romans 8:3-5 tells us that God sent His only Son in the form of...
  12. THE CALL TO PULL TOMORROW INTO TODAY

    Job 2:11 - " When Job’s three friends, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite, heard about all the troubles that had come upon him, they set out from their homes and met together by agreement to go and sympathize with him and comfort him." Friends - people you hang out with -- people you feel committed to -- people you would go the extra mile for -- people whose beliefs and opinions you respect. Popular Mindset -- That it is good to have a lot of friends. Your...
  13. THE CALL TO PULL TOMORROW INTO TODAY

    "...He has granted to us His precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature..." - 2 Peter 1:4 Promises from God are met with contradiction in the natural realm. God is announcing a reality to you that will most likely appear very distant and disconnected from your present situation. God's promises are prophetic glimpses of the realities He wants to release into and through your life. SUPERNATURAL BENEFITS OF THE PROMISES OF GOD 1.)...
  14. FULFILLING OUR PURPOSE

    Matthew 16:19 - "Whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven." How do we know what is bound and loosed in heaven? Who tells us what heaven's reality looks like? The only way to know these things and to function as the HOUSE OF GOD and GATE OF HEAVEN is to have revelation of what is happening in heaven. Otherwise, we're working in the dark. God has always wanted to release truth to His people, backed by...
  15. FULFILLING OUR PURPOSE

    Getting in touch with God's PURPOSE for our life can have the single most powerful impact on our own life after coming to know the Lord and being born again. All Christians are called to be witnesses, but we also have a CALLING in His Body that is more specific than that. The main factors that will lead to a revelation of our DESTINY and being prepared for it are the following: Resolving to do the Lord's will as the chief pursuit of our lives. All Christians are called to be "soldiers of...
