Insensitivity To Spiritual Things

Hebrews 5:11 - Concerning this we have much to say which is hard to explain, since you have become dull in your (spiritual) hearing and sluggish (even slothful in achieving spiritual insight).



They were not in need of hearing aids; rather their inward man had digressed to become insensitive to spiritual things.

The Holy Spirit does not communicate to our head but to our spirit. You can be a believer for years and not develop your spirit.

Scripture tells us that John the… Continue

Be Not Dismayed

Joshua 1:9 - Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.



BY FAR THE GREATEST GIFT EVER RECEIVED BY US IS THE HOLY SPIRIT HIMSELF. THOSE WHO DISCOVER THE VALUE OF HIS PRESENCE ENTER REALMS OF INTIMACY WITH GOD NEVER PREVIOUSLY CONSIDERED POSSIBLE. OUT OF THIS VITAL RELATIONSHIP ARISES A MINISTRY OF POWER THAT FORMERLY WAS ONLY A DREAM. THE INCOMPREHENSIBLE BECOMES POSSIBLE… Continue

Releasing God

1 Corinthians 13:4,5 - Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful.



When I release love into a situation, I have released God into it -- Jesus becomes responsible for it's success.



Affirmation



I release love every moment into every situation, every prayer and every thought until it totally consumes my life. It will strengthen me and cast out every… Continue

Paying The Price

Psalm 42:1 - As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.



WE NEGLECT TO PAY THE PRICE FOR THE PRESENCE OF GOD AND WIND UP WANDERING AROUND IN A WILDERNESS OF OUR OWN MAKING, BEING PURSUED BY SATAN.

EVERYTHING BEGINS WITH TOTAL ABANDONMENT, TOTAL SURRENDER AND TOTAL HUNGER FOR THE LIVING CHRIST - NOT THE THINGS HE GIVES OR IMPARTS, BUT CHRIST AND CHRIST ALONE.



Psalm 63:1 - O God, You are my God; early will I seek You; my soul… Continue

Confession unto Faith

Romans 10:9 - If you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.



Confession without any faith in the heart is powerless; it's useless.



What if I don't believe in my heart? Should I still confess the Word of God?



Yes, because with my lips, I can make confessions unto faith. In other words, as I say God's word over and over again, faith can be built in my heart where before there wasn't… Continue

Blowing the lid of limitations

Matthew 28:19 - 'Go ye therefore, and disciple all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."



Jesus has called us to live extreme lives as history makers who live in constant increase as we go about transforming the world for His glory and His kingdom -- just as He did!



John 17:21,22 - "That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that thou… Continue

What influence am I living under?

Psalm 119:105,111 - Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.



The attitude of those who live FROM the triumph of Christ is different than those who live under the influence of their past.



The only part of the past that we have legal acces to is the testimony of the Lord. The rest is dead, buried, forgotten, and covered under the blood. The past should have no… Continue

Expansion of Government

Daniel 2:44 In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which will never be destroyed, and that kingdom will not be left for another people; it will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, but it will itself endure forever.



The kingdom of God is meant to expand and have dominion over all other kingdoms. The garden of Eden was a prophetic symbol , or picture, of God’s kingdom or government. God’s original intention for the garden was for it to be tended by… Continue

Who is going to think my thoughts?

Genesis 3:1 - Now the serpent was more subtle and crafty than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And he (Satan) said to the woman, Can it really be that God has said, "You shall not eat from every tree of the garden"?



Observation



It is my responsibility to see that my thinking, believing and speaking are right. If I don't take that responsibility, the devil is going to think my thoughts for me. He'll actually have me believing what he wants me to… Continue

Discipling Others

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.



2 Peter 1:3,7,8 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 7and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in… Continue

Covenant With God

Throughout the history of God's dealings with man, He has revealed Himself as a covenant-making God. The Almighty covenanted with Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David; He renewed His Abrahamic covenant in His call to Isaac and Jacob. Each covenant:

a. Was linked to their DESTINY,

b. Initiated a new wave of redemptive power into the world, and

c. Forever impacted the human condition.



The word covenant means "to fetter" or chain together. Contained within the Lord's covenant… Continue

Empowered by the Spirit of Christ

2 Corinthians 5:17 - If any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.



Everything, even our intelligence and physical appearance, is now subject to change for the better. Old failures, prejudices, and attitudes are destined to go. New faith and hope should be growing within us daily.



HOW DO I ATTAIN SUCH A WONDERFUL NEW BEGINNING?



I receive the Spirit of Christ into my heart to empower me and I study the… Continue

Door to God's Eternal Kingdom

John 17:16,17 - They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.



LIFE, AS WE PERCEIVE IT, IS BASED UPON WHATEVER NETWORK OF THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS WE ARE CURRENTLY ALLOWING TO GOVERN OUR SOULS.



ON THE OTHER HAND, GOD DEFINES REALITY AS THE "TRUTH" FOUND IN HIS WORD.

FOR US TO TRAVEL FROM OUR WORLD INTO THE REALITY OF GOD, WE MUST VIEW JESUS' WORDS AS DOORS THROUGH WHICH WE ENTER GOD'S ETERNAL… Continue

Fully Invested

2 Corinthians 5:15 - And He died for all, that they who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.



Romans 14:7,8 - For not one of us lives for himself, and not one dies for himself; for if we live, we live for the Lord, or if we die, we die for the Lord; therefore whether we live or die, we are the Lords.



Our salvation has freed us from ourselves so that we can LIVE FOR GOD.

We died to the law but we also died to… Continue

Drawing Closer Through Feelings

Colossians 3:16 - Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.



YOUR FIRST STEP IN DRAWING CLOSER TO GOD IS TO REALIZE THAT YOU KNOW GOD FIRST IN HIS WORD. TIME SPENT MEDITATING IN THE NEW TESTAMENT IS TIME SPENT WITH JESUS.

MOST PEOPLE TRY TO KNOW HIM THROUGH THEIR FEELINGS AND THAT JUST WON'T WORK.

LETTING THE WORD DOMINATE YOUR THINKING IS TO ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TO HAVE CONTROL OVER YOUR MIND. AS YOU DO THAT, YOUR FEELINGS WILL EVENTUALLY FALL IN LINE.

Take No Thought

Matthew 6:31 - "Therefore take no though, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?"



In order to not take thought about one thing, one has to fill his thoughts with something else. In verse 31, Jesus gave us the basic key to controlling out thought lives. He said " take no thought - saying."



By putting a thought in our mouth and then speaking it, we take that thought. Once the thought becomes spoken words, it has been… Continue

The End Result

2 Corinthians 4:13 - "We have the same spirit of faith as he (the psalmist) who wrote, 'I have believed and therefore have spoken.' We too believe, and therefor we speak.



To speak by faith is simply to speak words that agree with the word of God instead of the circumstances around you. It's speaking from your spirit instead of from your mind.

The bible tells us that God uses words to "call those things which be not as though they were." (Romans 4:17)



I speak the end… Continue

One Spirit With Him

1 Corinthians 2:16 - "For who has known or understood the mind( the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ, the Messiah, and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.



First Corinthians 6:17 says that when we were joined to the Lord we became one spirit with Him. He came into union with us so that He can talk to us heart to heart -- His thoughts become our actions.



He wants… Continue

Focus and Purpose

Hebrews 4:12 - For the Word of God is living and powerful..........



For one who has faith in the Word of God, there is nothing impossible. There are no impossibilites when there is faith..........and there are no exceptions.......



Our faith in God's word is not just an abiding faith; it is active -- it is agressive by nature.

It has focus and purpose.

Faith grabs hold of the reality of the kingdom and forcefully and violently brings it into a collision with this… Continue

Speaking From My Spirit

2 Corinthians 4:13 - We have the same spirit of faith as he (the psalmist) who wrote, I have believed and therefore have spoken. We too believe, and therefore we speak.



TO SPEAK BY FAITH IS SIMPLY TO SPEAK WORDS THAT AGREE WITH THE WORD OF GOD INSTEAD OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES AROUND YOU. IT'S SPEAKING FROM YOUR SPIRIT INSTEAD OF FROM YOUR MIND.

THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT GOD USES WORDS TO "CALL THOSE THINGS WHICH BE NOT AS THOUGH THEY WERE" (ROMANS… Continue
