2 Corinthians 11:3 -- "But I fear...your minds may be corrupted from the simplicitity that is in Christ."
The problem is that we mistakenly strive for information when in reality we need revelation.
Ephesians 1:17,18 -- "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being…Continue

Ephesians 1:4 - He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him. In love.
MAN IS CALLED TO REST IN GOD, BUT WE MUST ALSO LABOR WITH GOD. IN THIS LABOR, WE MUST FIND WHAT HE CREATED US TO DO.
We were foreknown and chosen by God before the world was even created. The God who is so particular and specific also…Continue

Intimacy with God begins when we radically pursue Him with our whole heart. King David wrote, "When You said, 'Seek My face,' my heart said to You, 'Your face, O Lord, I shall seek'" (Psalms 27:8). God invites us in James…Continue

Let us receive a fresh impartation of "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" and reach out and declare it with confidence.
We are on the threshold of moving into the glory realms through covenant relationship with Jesus.…Continue

Zechariah 12:1 - Thus says the Lord, Who stretches out the heavens and lays the foundation of the earth and forms the spirit of man within him.
GOD IS SPIRIT, AND ZECHARIAH 12 TELLS US THAT GOD FORMED THE SPIRIT OF MAN WITHIN HIM. THIS HUMAN SPIRIT IS WHAT MAKES RELATIONSHIP AND FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD POSSIBLE AT ALL.

Hebrews 10:12,14 -- But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God....For by one offering He hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.
God sees us with no flaw, spot or imperfection, so we honor His Word and the finished work of Jesus by saying "Amen!"
To see ourselves as being far from perfect is not modesty, but a failure to…Continue

John 12:36 - While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light.
Jesus came as the light of the world. He then passed the baton to us announcing that we are the light of the world. Jesus came as the miracle worker.
He said that we would do "greater works" than He did (John 14:12).
He then says "right now the Holy Spirit is with…Continue

The Church will begin to take on more of a "military mentality" in the coming times. We are called to be an army, and in many ways we will start to reflect this in a much more serious and focused demeanor in the leadership and the people. There is something about conflict that does focus our senses. We have been in a war against darkness of the most desperate kind for the whole history of the Church, but not all seem to understand this or live as they would if they…Continue

Psalm 13:1 -- How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide your face from me?
Believers want to know God. God's wisdom is to let us 'taste' dryness that we might become desperate enough to seek for living water.
Many misinterpret the dryness and become so discouraged that they stop seeking God altogether and even stop attending church. But God…Continue

Matthew 27:32 - "Now as they came out, the found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name. Him they compelled to bear His cross."

2 Corinthians 5:6-8 - We realize that being "at home"in the body means that to some extent we are "away" from the Lord, for we have to live by trusting Him without seeing Him. We are so sure of this that we would really rather be "away" from the body and be "at home" with the Lord.
Questions to Ask Myself
Am I more comfortable walking by faith than by what I see?

1. They had a death structure attached to their lives. God passed by them and saw them struggling in their blood. (Ezekiel 16:6-14) For us, God is saying that He is presently overshadowing us with His presence and desires to set us free from generational blood lines that are affecting our…Continue

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…Continue

John 14:12 -- "He who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works that these he will do, because I go to My Father"
