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.…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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.

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…Continue

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…Continue

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,…Continue
