Getting in touch with our DESTINY in Christ can have the single most powerful impact on our own life after coming to know the Lord and being born again. All Christians are called to be witnesses, but we also have a CALLING in His Body that is more specific than that.
The main factors that will lead to a revelation of our DESTINY and being prepared for it are the…Continue

"Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which is translated, "God with us." Matthew 1:23
God sent the prophet Isaiah to King Ahaz (see Isaiah chapter 7) to tell him that God would protect them from the army that was coming against them. Scripture goes on to remind us of the Kingdom principle that is necessary to possess the promises of God. It is written, "If you…Continue

Song of Solomon 2:9 - "Behold, He is standing behind our wall, He is looking through the windows, He is peering through the lattice."
Yes, Christ dwells within us, but He is standing behind our "walls." The walls between us and the Savior are primarily the work of :
1. Unrenewed Minds
2. Hardened Hearts

The walls we erect between God and ourselves are not just ones of sin and fear but lack of both intimacy and depth. Sometimes being spiritual can be extremely superficial. We can utter all of the right words and phrases but lack depth. It is a bit like some of the relationships wie have with humans. We can either ignore people or fail to really know them. We can do this with God as well.
We need to stir up the holy gifts within us - they (THE GIFTS) begin to be released again when we remember God's goodness to us; when we learn to meditate in our hearts on His past faithfullness and His love for us.
FORGETTING GOD'S PAST FAITHFULLNESS

We see that the engine of the Gospel message that drives it into the world--is His presence and glory. It is not a tantalizing self-induced experience that produces no fruit, but rather an illuminating light which leads the world to Jesus and becomes the pillar of fire that leads His Church into the world. Yet often in contemporary circles, we see the opposite in effect. We want to privatize His glory and keep it shrouded in personal experience, assuming the world…Continue

Isaiah 4:2-6 - "In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious ..... When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and purged the bloodshed of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and the spirit of burning, then the LORD will create over the whole area of Mount Zion and over her assemblies a cloud by day, even smoke, and the brightness of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory will be a canopy. There will be a…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…

It is time for us to align ourselves with God's government and shift into our new season. However, to totally shift, we are must press beyond our circumstances and religious belief systems. We are being challenged to press beyond the pressures of our own abilities to make things happen, and press only to look to Him.
In our new season, we will not be able to make any "strange fires" as Nadab and Abihu…Continue

We must basically wage war with the old mindsets that keep us from "coming up" into this divine advancement. It is an invitation to enter a Heavenly door, and enter into the…Continue

The Psalmist wrote, 'They looked to Him and were radiant, and their faces were not ashamed.' As a follower of Christ, that should be your testimony. Because you have placed your trust in Him you are able to say, 'I am not ashamed'…
