Luke 18: 1-8 - Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart saying: "There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, 'Get justice for me from my adversary.'
And he would not for a while, but afterward he…

Genesis 32:24 And Jacob was left alone. And a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day. When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he touched his hip socket, and Jacob's hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. Then he said, "Let me go, for the day has broken." But Jacob said, "I will not let you go unless you bless me."
The Lord looks for something in us…Continue

And He said to them all, "If any man will [willingly choose to] come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me." Luke 9:23
Each of us who desires to personally know and serve the Lord must first make this life-changing decision to "take up our cross." When we willingly do this, our present relationship to the Lord, and also…Continue

The main idea for breakthrough comes from the breakthrough of water from 2 Samuel 5:20: "So David went to Baal Perazim (which means "possessor of the breaches"), and David defeated them there; and he said, "The LORD has broken through my enemies before me, like a breakthrough of water."
The word breakthrough comes from the Hebrew word "perets" which means "To break out." In the areas that we are…Continue

The very first miracle of Jesus turning water into wine in John 2 provides some clues as to how we might access the reality of what we have read and studied in His Word.
There was a wedding in Cana of Galilee. Jesus was there and a need arose. Jesus was asked, and He responded by turning the water into wine. He thus openly revealed His glory…Continue

"My Beloved spake, and said unto me, 'Rise up, My love, My fair one, and come away.'" Song of Solomon 2:10
The Lord has something far better to offer us if we will respond to His call to "rise up" with Him into a higher realm of spiritual reality. To this pressing call, He adds a word of encouragement:
"For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and…

The Gospel of the Kingdom teaches people how to apply the influence of Heaven to their everyday lives—including their surroundings and daily activities.
There are seven major spheres (or mountains) which impact society: business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, family and religion (see Isaiah 2:2; Mic. 4:1). Every Believer moves in at least one of these areas, and God wants…Continue

The decisions we make, the places we go, the things we say -- create images in our subconscious. First, we think a thought; then we rehearse it until it begins to formulate an image. Finally, our words speak things into existence and our actions set dynamics into motion. We are to present and display the Kingdom of God that dwells within us, releasing it in powerful demonstrations. We are not called to simply exist, but to be…Continue

God's desire is that we fully understand who we really are in Him, and the extent of the call on the lives of His saints. The call is immense – full of His "kabod" glory, and it is vital to our covenant DESTINY in Christ that we have His revelation on the fullness of the call in this incredible hour we are chosen to serve Him in.
In 2 Timothy 1:8-9, Paul…

There are doctrines today that allow Christians to sit back and do nothing. They defend this cool, casual leave-it-all-to-God attitude with Bible passages. Such an outlook is entirely foreign to the spirit of the New Testament.
The ultimate purpose of ministry should not be to teach people how to get things from God. The aim of the Christian life is to give and to equip fellow Christians to advance the Kingdom of…

When Jesus said, "Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand" (Matthew 4:17), it was not a message of judgment and condemnation – "Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand" was, is, and always will be a presentation of opportunity through love and forgiveness that reaches out to everyone, offering a new way of…Continue
Transition times are when the Lord redefines and makes adjustments necessary for us to move forward. He gives us new focus and direction. He teaches us about Himself in a new way.
If we are in a time of major transition it is easy to feel stressed or uncertain. This is a time to trust that God has your best interest at hand.
We are bombarded daily with conflicting…
