The Extravagance of God



John 2:3-5 - When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine."

"Why do you involve me?" Jesus replied, "My time has not yet come." His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."

Jesus attended a wedding where they ran out of wine. As yet He hadn't performed any of the wonders for which He would later become…

Expectation



Hebrews 11:1 - Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Worldy hope is just a kind of wish.

Whenever we see hope in the bible, it means there is an expectiation. According to Mark 11:24, when we pray, we should believe we receive.

We should expect -- not just desire -- that those things come to pass.…

Seven Places Jesus Shed His Blood - #7



Isaiah 53:5 - "But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed."

The seventh place Jesus shed his blood was in His bruises; He was bruised for our iniquities.…

Gateway To Heaven



Revelation 4:1,2 - After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things." Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne was standing in heaven, and One sitting on the throne.

A sign in front of a church said "we are just a…

Fear Of Error



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 CREATING DOCTRINE TO…

Limitless Reality



Matthew 5:8 - Blessed (happy, enviably fortunate, and spiritually prosperous - possessing the happiness produced by the experience of god's favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His grace, regardless of their outward conditions) are the pure in heart, for they shall see God!

When we see ourselves for whom we truly are meant to be in God, we can begin to call others out of their limited ways into…

Going Higher and Going Lower



John 1:51 - Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see the heavens opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.

Jesus is Jacob's ladder which we ascend and descend upon.

It is our calling in Christ to both go higher and go lower. We are called to ascend into the heavenly places and be seated with Him there, and at the same time descend to the earth with the…

Spiritual Dominion



Luke 10:19 -- "Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you."



Genesis 1:26 -- "And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over ever creeping thing that creepeth upon…

Storage In Heaven



Ephesians 1:3, 2:6, 2:10 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 6and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 10For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in…

Transformational Power Encounter



Matthew 28:19 - Go therefore and make disciples of all nations....teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you.

A young man told his pastor "I'll pursue signs and wonders when I know I have more of the character of Christ in me."

As good as that sounds, it comes from a religious mindset, not a heart abandoned to the Gospel of Jesus…

Keeping Fresh Spiritually

.

Exodus 16:4 - Then the Lord said to Moses, "Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may test them, whether or not they will walk in My instruction.

THIS IS THE TEST OF WHETHER WE WILL GET UP FIRST THING EVERY DAY AND SEEK FRESH "MANNA" FROM HEAVEN. THIS FRESH DAILY WORD FROM HEAVEN WILL HELP KEEP US FRESH SPIRITUALLY. WHEN WE STOP GATHERING IT EVERY…

Becoming The Temperature Of The Culture



Matthew 24:12 - And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

Satan wants you to become the temperature of the culture that surrounds you, a believer bound by a stone cold heart. By exposure to hardness and darkness in the times that we live in, our love and passion will begin to cool by degrees.

When you see churches and individual who do not have the energy…

Demonstration 0f Power



Luke 2:11 - For there is born to you this day.....a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS THE PROPHETS SPOKE OF THE MESSIAH'S COMING. THEY GAVE OVER 300 SPECIFIC DETAILS DESCRIBING HIM, JESUS FULFILLED THEM ALL!

YET WITH THE ONE STATEMENT, "UNLESS I DO THE WORKS OF THE FATHER, DO NOT BELIEVE ME," (JOHN 10:37) JESUS PUTS THE CREDIBILITY OF ALL…

Short Circuiting Gods Power

John 1:16 - And of his fulness have all we received and grace for grace.

Most Christians believe God can do anything but experience very little. They believe that God can release His power in answer to prayer, but whether something comes to pass or not depends on their performance (ie. being holy, speaking right, studying the word. tithing, avoiding strife,…

Rushing Into Eternity

Haggai 2:9 - "The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts."



Hebrews 6:1 - "Therefore let us go on and get past the elementary stage in the teachings and doctrine of Christ, advancing steadily toward the completeness and perfection that belong to spiritual maturity."




Nearly 2000 years ago, the author of the book of Hebrews exhorted the Jewish Christians to… Continue

Translated Into The Kingdom

Colossians 1:12,13 - Giving thanks unto the Father ...Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath traslated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.

Many believers limit God without even realizing it by training their eyes on the limited resources of this world rather than the unlimited riches of God's Kingdom.

Their faith fails when they think of the troubled economy on the earth or of the scarcity that surrounds them.



The Bible says God has "delivered us… Continue

God Encounter

Matthew 22:29 - You are wrong because you know neither the scriptures nor God's power.



In this passage Jesus rebukes the Pharisees for their ignorance of the scriptures and God's power. What was the cause?

They didn't allow the scriptures to lead them to God. They didn't understand......not really understand. The word "know" in this passage speaks of "personal experience." They tried to learn apart from such an experience. Their study didn't lead them to an encounter with… Continue

Crazy Love

Acts 26:16 - But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.



PAUL KNEW THAT KING AGRIPPA'S DAD (KING AGRIPPA I) WAS RESPONSIBLE AT THAT TIME FOR THE EXECUTION OF JAMES, ONE OF THE 12 DISCIPLES. YET PAUL MADE SURE THE TRUTH WAS ON TRIAL, RATHER THAT HIS PERSONAL SAFETY OR SELF-ESTEEM.



LIKE PAUL WE MUST RESIST… Continue

The Spirit of Prophecy

Revelation 19:10 - The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.



A testimony prophesies what is possible again. It declares another miracle is now available.

It illustrates to all who will listen, the nature of God and His covenant with mankind.

All He looks for is someone who will add his or her faith to the testimony given.

Because He is no respecter of persons He will do for you what He did for another. Because He is the same today as yesterday, He is willing to… Continue

Devoting Ourselves

John 8:39 - They answered and said to Him, "Abraham is our father." Jesus said to them, "If you are Abraham's children, do the deeds of Abraham."



Abraham was an alien and stranger on the earth. The goal of his life was to have a place in what God was building, not men.

We are not the heirs of faith because we know that we must live by faith, but we become the heirs of faith by actually having faith, by doing the same deeds that Abraham did.

We must devote ourselves to… Continue

MEDITATIONS ON JESUS - June 6, 2019

The rabble could not disturb Him; death could not corrupt Him; hell could not keep Him; and the grave could not contain Him!Gravitation could not restrain Him, and God has highly exalted Him and given Him a Name above every name, and at His Name…Continue
