Acts 1:4,8 - He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for what the Father had promised. But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.
THIS POWER CAME THROUGH AN ENCOUNTER WITH GOD. SOME, BECAUSE OF THEIR FEAR OF ERROR, HAVE SAID IT'S IMPROPER TO SEEK FOR AN EXPERIENCE WITH GOD.
FOR DECADES THE CHURCH HAS BEED GUILTY OF…Continue

Isaiah 4:2-6 2In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth will be the pride and the adornment of the survivors of Israel. 3It will come about that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy—everyone who is recorded for life in Jerusalem. 4When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and purged the bloodshed of Jerusalem from her midst, by the…Continue

The parable of the talents emphasizes that not all believers are given the same level of callings and gifts. The man who travels to the far country is Jesus and the servants represent us. A talent is a measure of money that represents the level of our call and gifts. Two important points in this parable:
1. All of the servants are given something -- this tells us that there is…Continue

Clearly and with clarity.

To cleanse our ears out of any defilement,
Wickedness, garbage, gossip or slander
That has been poured into our ears,
So that we might hear…

Matthew 6:33 -- "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things whall be added to you."
We all have things that we perceive that we need. What does God have to say to us about these concerns?
According to Matthew 6:31, He tells us, "Do not worry." God cares about us having these things. He…Continue

Just because we walk and talk does not mean we are truly awake. Zechariah was not sleeping when an angel roused him "as a man who is awakened from his sleep" (Zechariah 4:1).
Perhaps we too need to be shaken from our slumber to possess the promises of God! Amazingly, in spite of all the signs, wonders, and warnings announcing that we are truly in the last…Continue

THE WORD TELLS US THAT GOD SHOWS HIMSELF STRONG IN BEHALF OF THOSE WHOSE HEARTS ARE "PERFECT" TOWARD HIM (2 CHRONICLES 16:9). "PERFECT" DOESN'T MEAN THAT WE HAVE TO DO EVERTHING JUST RIGHT AND LIVE WITHOUT MAKING A MISTAKE. IT MEANS "DEVOTED" -- A HEART CONSECRATED, DEDICATED, LOYAL AND FAITHFUL TO GOD.
WHO IS FAITHFUL? THE ONE WHO SPEND HIS TIME DOING WHAT GOD HAS CALLED HIM TO DO. OR AS JESUS PUT IT, THE ONE…Continue

Have you ever thought about the fact that you could create opportunity for God? That you could attract Him or draw Him to you by simply doing something out of the ordinary -- something that demands RISKY FAITH?
There have been individuals throughout Biblical history who made difficult decisions to do something that would change the course of history and create opportunities for God to move. These individuals made it…Continue

When Jesus went up the mountain with three of His disciples, he was transfigured or altered from His human state to a glorified one (Matthew 17:1-9). It was a fearful moment of splendor as the Son of Man revealed His heavenly identity and manifested His glory in human form.
Jesus declares to His discpiles "Tell the vision to…Continue

John 5:39 - You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.
This says clearly that revelation is meant to bring us into an encounter with God, and if it doesn't, it only makes us more religious.
Re-newing the mind is not merely reading words on a page and having a moment of revelation about a particular verse. Renewal comes as revelation leads…Continue
