John 14:6,7 - Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had know me, ye should have known My Father also: and from henceforth ye know Him, and have seen Him.
Unless we can be corrected, unless we are seeking God for an unfolding revelation of His son, our so-called "faith" may be, in reality, just a lazy indifference, a deception concerning the things of God.…Continue

Song of Solomon 8:5 -- Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved?
In order to learn new ways to walk we must first learn to lean.
Proverbs 3:6 -- Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.
Leaning on our Beloved often requires us to lean away from our own…Continue

False foundations, paradigms, illegitimate structures, systems, and limitations must bow to the Father's Kingdom. His Kingdom is perpetually coming to earth, and one day will fill the earth in Father's glory, as the water covers the sea. The Kingdom of God is within us, and whether we are noticing it or not, will continue to break through on earth as it is in Heaven. The shaking must happen, and yet those who desire to live…Continue

Hebrews 11:6 - But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
All fear is rooted in the notion that God's promises won't come to pass. Fear of poverty is really fear that Philippians 4:19 (concerning God providing all my needs) won't work. Fear of sickness is really the fear that 1…Continue

1 Corinthians 1:31 -- As it says in the scriptures, "If anyone is going to boast, let him boast only of what the Lord has done."
If someone were to ask us, "What must I do to inherit eternal life?" we would probably tell him, "Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved."
A rich young ruler asked Jesus the same question but instead of telling the man to believe in Him, Jesus gave him the law…Continue

John 14:16 -- "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever..."
The Holy Spirit, the Helper, is ready to give out gifts and is giving out gifts to those who are asking, knocking and seeking and believing that God will do what He says He will do.
Jeremiah 1:12 -- The Lord said to me, "You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that My word is…Continue

The bride continues,
"Behold, he is standing behind our wall, he is looking through the windows, he is peering through the lattice" (Song of Solomon 2:9).
Yes, Christ dwells within us, but He is standing behind our "walls." The walls between us and the Savior are primarily the work of unrenewed minds and hardened hearts. We have barricaded ourselves behind fears and carnal…Continue

Luke 17:21 nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or, ‘There it is!’ For behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst."
The kingdom of heaven is planted within us as a seed and it is intended to grow and expand within us and on the earth.…Continue

Romans 4:17 -- ....."God who gives life to the dead and calls thos things which do not exist as though they did."
Sometimes we feel feel pain from sickness. How can we go around saying the Christ has redeemed us from this sickness? How can we say that by His stripes we are healed?
God's way is to call those things that are not as though they are. And because we are made in God's image, we can also call those things…Continue

2 Corinthians 3:16-18 -- Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
To repent means to "turn around and go in the opposite direction, change our minds, purposes,…Continue

Matthew 16:6 -- "Watch out! Jesus warned them. 'Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.'"
Ephesians 1:17 -- "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him."
The Pharisees emphasized knowledge over revelation and their blatant disregard for God's voice. Of all the people that Jesus encountered, His…Continue

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I confess my doubt and the doubt in my generational line.
I confess that this doubt has made me unstable and has given me double-mindedness.
I confess that the source of this double-mindedness has…Continue

The term "Mammon" predominantly signifies riches and wealth, but as Colin Brown, in The New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology, points out, "Material wealth can be personified as a demonic power, Mammon" (New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology, vol. 2, ed. Colin Brown (Grand Rapids, MI: Regency Reference Library), 1986, p. 829). When our stewardship of wealth does not align with God's purpose and…Continue

Nehemiah 2:5,17 -- "And I said unto the king....that thou wouldest send me unto Judah, unto the city of my fathers' sepulchres, that I may build it.....the gates thereof are burned with fire, come and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem....
We need to prosper on every front and be like Nehemiah! In his day, Nehemiah saw Jerusalem in ruins and began to rebuild walls, restore gates, hang doors, and ready the place for a new move of worship.…Continue
Revelation 4:1 -- "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven..."
If we will live in the awareness of the heavenly, we must be freed from the boundaries of the earthly. To awaken faith, the Holy Spirit will take us through times when the presence of God cannot be clearly discerned.
Psalm 13:1 -- "How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? forever? how long with thou hide thy face from…Continue

John 15:5 - "I am the Vine and ye are the branches."
