1 Peter 1:7 AMP - "So that the genuinenes of your faith may be tested, your faith which is infinitely more precious than the perishable gold which is tested and purified by…

We will never be righteous due to anything we do for God. Only the righteousness of Jesus Christ which covers us makes us righteous.
This is why in Galatians 3:1, Paul addressed those in the Church concerning this issue. Paul was concerned that they seemed to have tossed aside the finished work of Christ and were back into the old belief system that involved the Law and performance. If they were truly…Continue

Hebrews 4:1-3 - "Let us fear therefore, lest haply a promise being left us of entering into His rest, any of you should seem to have come short of it....because they were not united by faith with them that heard. For we which have believed do enter into that rest.."
We speak, with Scripture, of the "rest" of faith. Faith, however, only gives rest because it rests in God; it rests…Continue

In Ezekiel 37, the Prophet Ezekiel was carried in the Spirit to a valley of dry bones.
These bones represented the house of Israel, but also speak of structures, as well as anything that has been dead for so long it no longer even resembles its former appearance. God led Ezekiel to walk around the dry bones, and in verse 2, the Bible makes three things very clear:…Continue

Isaiah 4:1 - "In that day seven women will take hold of one man and say, 'We will eat our own food and provide our own clothes; only let us be called by your name. Take away our disgrace.'"
We have taken hold of the world and we have taken hold of clever ideas, but the seven women (seven churches -- see Revelation 2 and 3) are about to lay hold of their Beloved. The…

"The key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder, so he shall open and no one shall shut; and he shall shut, and no one shall open." - Isaiah 22:22
The kings who ruled during Biblical days, wore…Continue

Most Christians see the heavens closed. Few see with open vision either into the heavenly realms or into their own hearts.
Romans 14:17 - "For the…Continue

It is easy to go to sleep reviewing negative iedeas and pictures in our mind and wake up in the morning with a poisoned and negative spirit instead of falling asleep loving and receiving from Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
CONTINUOUSLY DECLARE GOD'S WORDS
We declare truth over any negative circumstance in our lives and we see Jesus present in inner…Continue

Acts 14:3 - "Therefore they stayed there a long time speaking boldly in the Lord who was bearing witness to the word of His grace granting signs and wonders done by their hands."
There has to be a demonstration of this King we serve. The evidence of His resurrection is in the power of your words and the power of the actions that follow your words.
Throughout the book of Acts it says, "They…

It is imperative that we realize our personal identity in Christ. In Colossians 2:9 we discover this central fact concerning Christ Jesus: "For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily."
Our outlook on life is changed as we contemplate: "And you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power." (Colossians 2:10)
"You are complete," which means we lack…Continue
