The Spirit of Prophecy

Revelation 19:10 - The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.



A testimony prophesies what is possible again. It declares another miracle is now available.

It illustrates to all who will listen, the nature of God and His covenant with mankind.

All He looks for is someone who will add his or her faith to the testimony given.

Because He is no respecter of persons He will do for you what He did for another. Because He is the same today as yesterday, He is willing to… Continue

Devoting Ourselves

John 8:39 - They answered and said to Him, "Abraham is our father." Jesus said to them, "If you are Abraham's children, do the deeds of Abraham."



Abraham was an alien and stranger on the earth. The goal of his life was to have a place in what God was building, not men.

We are not the heirs of faith because we know that we must live by faith, but we become the heirs of faith by actually having faith, by doing the same deeds that Abraham did.

We must devote ourselves to… Continue

Affirming Identity

Luke 1:26,28 - And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee named Nazareth. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail thou art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.



WHEN GOD CHOSE TO BRING THE MESSIAH THROUGH THE VIRGIN MARY, HE SENT GABRIEL THE ANGEL TO BRING THE MESSAGE. WHEN THE APOSTLE PAUL WAS ABOUT TO SUFFER SHIPWRECK, AN ANGEL OF THE LORD TOLD HIM WHAT WOULD HAPPEN. ON NUMEROUNS OCCASIONS THROUGHOUT… Continue

Seeing Jesus Unfettered

Luke 1:35 - The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the Holy One to be born will be called the Son of God.



AS MARY RECEIVED CHRIST INTO HER PHYSICAL BODY, WE HAVE RECEIVED JESUS INTO OUR SPIRITS. AS SHE BIRTHED CHRIST, OUR QUEST IS TO SEE JESUS UNFETTERED FROM THE WOMB OF OUR RELIGION ABOUT HIM. OUR DESTINY IS NOT JUST TO CARRY CHRIST INSIDE BUT TO REVEAL THE FULLNESS OF HIS GLORY IN THIS WORLD.

Living By Expectation

1 Samuel 17:46 - This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord's, and He will give you into our hands.



DAVID FRAMED HIS WORLD.… Continue

Preparation For Greater Victories

Matthew 1:21 - And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save His people from their sins.



Of all the names that the heavenly Father could have given His Son, it is most significant that He chose the name "Jesus," for Jesus is the Greek form of "Joshua," who was the Hebrew general who led the people into warfare.



To be prepared for greater victories, we need a greater revelation of Jesus Christ; we need to see him as a Holy warrior,… Continue

Believing for the impossible

Acts 3:6,7 - But Peter said, Silver and gold I do not have; but what I do have, that I give to you: in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk! Then he took hold of the man's right hand with a firm grip and raised him up. And at once his feet and ankle bones became strong and steady.



PART OF OUR PROBLEM IS THIS: WE ARE ACCUSTOMED ONLY TO DOING THINGS FOR GOD THAT ARE NOT IMPOSSIBLE. IF GOD DOESN'T SHOW UP AND HELP US, WE CAN STILL SUCCEED.

THERE MUST BE AN ASPECT OF THE… Continue

Knowing His Voice

John 10:4 - The gate keeper admits him, and the sheep hear his voice; he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out. When he as brought them all out, he goes ahead and the sheep follow, because they know his voice.



JESUS DID NOT SAY, "MY SHEEP WILL KNOW MY BOOK." IT IS HIS VOICE THAT WE ARE TO KNOW. WHY THE DISTINCTION? BECAUSE ANYONE CAN KNOW THE BIBLE AS A BOOK - THE DEVIL HIMSELF KNOWS AND QUOTES THE SCRIPTURES. BUT ONLY THOSE WHOSE LIVES ARE DEPENDENT ON THE PERSON OF THE… Continue

Different Spiritual Posture

Matthew 16:6 -- "Watch out! Jesus warned them. 'Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.'"



Ephesians 1:17 -- "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him."



The Pharisees emphasized knowledge over revelation and their blatant disregard for God's voice. Of all the people that Jesus encountered, His harshest statements were toware the Pharisees and Sadducees. He called… Continue

Place of the Skull

Romans 12:2 - "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is -- His good, pleasing and perfect will."



Observation



THE PLACE WHERE JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED WAS CALLED "GOLGOTHA", WHICH MEANT "PLACE OF THE SKULL". IF I WILL BE EFFECTIVE IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE, THE FIRST FIELD OF CONFLICT WHERE I MUST LEARN WARFARE IS THE BATTLEGROUND OF THE MIND; IE. THE "PLACE OF… Continue

An un-natural Fire

1 John 4:17 - As He is, so are we in this world.



AT THE AZUZA STREET REVIVAL, THE FIRE DEPARTMENT WAS CALLED TO EXTINGUISH A BLAZE, ONLY TO DISCOVER THAT THE PEOPLE INSIDE WERE WORSHIPING JESUS. WATER COULDN'T PUT IT OUT AS IT WAS NOT A NATURAL FIRE.

IF THE FATHER FILLED THE OLD TESTAMENT HOUSES WITH HIS GLORY, THOUGH THEY WERE BUILT BY HUMAN HANDS, HOW MUCH MORE WILL HE FILL THE PLACE THAT HE BUILDS WITH HIS OWN HANDS! HE IS BUILDING US INTO HIS ETERNAL DWELLING… Continue

Bible Study Techniques

A. DEVOTIONAL STUDY (To be used in teaching)



Go directly to the Blble and read over a few times the portion to be taught. Then try answering the following questions:



1. What does this portion teach about God the Father...the Son...the Holy Spirit?



2. What does it teach about man?



3. Are there any warnings to heed?



4. Are there any commands to obey?



5. Are there any promises to claim by faith?



When completing this… Continue

Stepping Into Resurrection Life

Luke 24:1-3 - Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.



Observation



TRULY, ITS TIME FOR ME TO STOP LOOKING FOR THE LIVING AMONG THE DEAD. IT'S TIME FOR ME TO STOP WANDERING AROUND IN THE CEMETERY OF SIN, SICKNESS, AND FAILURE AND… Continue

Snared, Trapped & Caught

Matthew 12:37 - For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.



Affirmations



Today!...I make up my mind that I'm going to speak life to my situations and circumstances. I am going to the word of God to find out what He has to say about me and my situation, and I'm going to say what He says.



Today!...I curse the wrong words I've spoken over my life and begin to speak the words of life I'm supposed to… Continue

Discipling The Body of Christ

2 Corinthians 5:18Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation,



2 Corinthians 4:1,4,6,7,10,11Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy, we do not lose heart 4in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 6For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,”… Continue

Pulling Virtue Out Of The Holy Spirit

Psalm 5:3 -- 'In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.'



Hearing from God is living with expectation toward Him because expectation places a demand on the Holy Spirit. We should live with expectation toward God twenty-four hours a day, for He abides within us at all times.



God does talk. He is speaking continually. Christians need to develop their receivers (their human spirits) which will enable them to… Continue

Demonically Induced Pattern

2 Corinthians 10:4 - The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to tear down strongholds.





Wherever a stronghold exists, it is a deomonically induced pattern of thinking. Specifically it is a "House made of thoughts" which has become a dwelling place for satanic activity. The strongholds upon which demons relay consists of our own thoughts, attitudes, and opinions which are in agreement with evil.

Who Told You?

Genesis 3:11 - And He said, Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?



By taking the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they found a source of the knowledge of right and wrong outside of God. This can be identified as the principle of reasoning.

They no longer needed the wisdom of God; They could govern themselves according to their sense of right and wrong. This is why God questioned them "who… Continue

Seven Places Jesus Shed His Blood - 4

Leviticus 16:14,19 - Before the mercy seat he shall sprinkle some of the blood with his finger SEVEN times.....Then he shall sprinkle some of the blood on it with his finger SEVEN times, cleanse it, and consecrate it.



The fourth place Jesus' blood was shed was from His hands, where the soldiers pounded spikes to nail Him to the cross.



Genesis 1:26 - Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion of the fish of the sea, over… Continue

Insensitivity To Spiritual Things

Hebrews 5:11 - Concerning this we have much to say which is hard to explain, since you have become dull in your (spiritual) hearing and sluggish (even slothful in achieving spiritual insight).



They were not in need of hearing aids; rather their inward man had digressed to become insensitive to spiritual things.

The Holy Spirit does not communicate to our head but to our spirit. You can be a believer for years and not develop your spirit.

Scripture tells us that John the… Continue
