The Kingdom of God is not a matter of mere words but of an empowered life, and God is calling forth a company of overcomers. These overcomers will go into the world and testify to the goodness of God, attracting non-believers to Christ-like moths to a flame.
IT IS TIME TO ARISE AND SHINE
We are the temple of the living God and the Holy Spirit…Continue

Some say, 'The River is flowing. Just step in.' But we need to say, 'Just step in, and the river will flow.'
Some are passively waiting to see what God will do, while He is waiting for us to exercise faith to see Him move with power. Mark said it well:
"And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord kept WORKING WITH THEM and confirming the message by…

And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God." - Luke 13:11-13

We often assume that meekness and humility are the same, when really they are two different things entirely.
Numbers 12:3 talk about how Moses was the most humble man who had walked the earth in his time. Usually, when we think of Moses' humility we think of Exodus 4:10 when Moses said to God that he could not be used by God because he could not speak eloquently. However, this…

"Where there is no vision, the people perish; but happy is he who keeps the teaching" (Proverbs 29:18).
God is looking for those with a Habakkuk spirit who will not only see and hear, but record and proclaim – and keep proclaiming until the people's ears and eyes open to what the Lord is saying and doing.
Once, when Habakkuk stood on the wall,…

In this passage, a wonderful picture is painted of the armies of Heaven following Christ into battle. These armies have been washed in the Blood of the lamb. These are the souls of the departed saints that are going to return with Christ when He invades…

Philippians 3:10, 12

We develop a resurrection mindset, not just the future resurrection but in our thinking now. There will be an ultimate resurrection and glorification. There is a resurrection power working in us now. Our spirit has been raised from the dead already (see Romans 6:3).
"And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also…

The work of the Cross of Christ made it possible for Believers in Him to receive right standing with the Father. Jesus' righteousness became theirs. They could now enter into fellowship…

David is speaking about his experience with the Lord's breakthrough. He describes it like an outburst of waters that is like a flood breaking down the wall of resistance coming from the enemies of God. This reveals…

"I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, my great army which I sent among you" (Joel 2:25).
Since we serve a God of restoration, we might ask the question: "What can God restore?" The answer is that God can restore everything that has been lost; nothing is impossible with Him (see…

There is a paralyzing passivity so prevalent in the Church today. As prophetic voices, we must sound the alarm: these are not days of peace! We have no armistice with the workers of darkness! We must stir ourselves out of this stupor, as Scripture instructs us to do. We must rouse to reality and awake (see Romans 13:11-14 AMP).
NOW IS THE TIME TO AWAKEN…Continue
