"He who believes in Me the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father" (John 14:12).
Are we walking with an earnest expectation of the miraculous? Are we truly expecting to see the goodness of God manifested (birthed) on earth, or are we just hoping that it will be? Hope in God is good, but the Lord wants to…Continue

Matthew 6:10 - "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven."
What world is more real to us? Is it this present world or the eternal? When we are more aware of the ultimate eternal life with God, when the temporal world no longer makes much difference, there is a freedom that comes in our spirit – because this place is not our home. We are…Continue

John 14:12 - "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go to the Father."
The miracles of Jesus were a demonstration of how the authority of the Kingdom of Heaven has dominion over any condition on the earth. To the degree that we abide in the Kingdom by abiding in…Continue

"In the light of the king's face is life, and his favor is like a cloud of the latter rain"—Proverbs 16:15
If we walk under an open Heaven, the King's light will overshadow us! The light from His brilliant face releases His life, but it also releases His favor, which is "like a cloud of the latter rain." So His favor is described as this spiritual rain.…

"For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in Heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of…Continue

Our work is not to make the gospel relevant to the world. To change the world we must be different from the world. We must challenge what people think.

Zechariah 4:6,7 - " This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' says the Lord of hosts. 'Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel, you shall become a plain!'"
There is an ANOINTING that God gives to each of us that is for our walk with God. His anointing teaches us all things. This anointing is for the inner life. There are OTHER anointings that…Continue
The enemy has many Christians trapped in unbelief and self-condemnation. They know what they did was wrong and they hate it, but they cannot unburden themselves of the guilt. Remember, our Redeemer came to proclaim liberty to those who are "prisoners" (see Isaiah 61:1). Is He speaking only of those who are incarcerated in jails? No, His mission is for all of us who are prisoners of our past…Continue

Jesus came to earth with the sole purpose of doing the will of His Father. The will of God for OUR OWN LIVES (OUR DESTINY) is central and foundational to our PURPOSE for being here.
If we never come to the place of realizing that why we are here IS to do His will then we are really missing it. The will of God is not convenient, as many times it will go cross grain against our own desires and thinking. When we choose to do the…Continue
We fail to reach into God enough. As Christians, we need to spend more time listening to God than anything else. When we do hear the Lord, creative power and life flow through His words.
Determine in your heart that you want to reach the highest place in God -- learning how to live each day in pure, loving oneness with Him. And once you have set your heart on this upward path, you will have to choose it every…Continue

Time is where we live but we can walk in the Spirit where God lives while we live here in time. Jesus, while standing on earth said…Continue

The deadness and feebleness of the saints today is largely due to their receiving and following the truth with their minds. This is nothing but the law. In spite of the exactness of the letter, it is absolutely not of the Holy Spirit.
Our understanding deals with conceptions and images of divine things, but it cannot reach the real life of the inner spirit. He fills only the pursuing hungry and thirsty soul with spiritual…Continue

God wants to resurrect things that have died in us. We may think that our window of occasion is past the time that anything good can happen, but remember we serve the God of the resurrection.
"Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life....." - John 11:25
We are to be continually taking ground for the Kingdom of…Continue

Acts 14:3 - "Therefore they stayed there a long time speaking boldly in the Lord who was bearing witness to the word of His grace granting signs and wonders done by their hands."
There has to be a demonstration of this King we serve. The evidence of His resurrection is in the power of your words and the power of the actions that follow your words.
Throughout the book of Acts it says, "They…

One of the unique things about the Church of the New Covenant is that God has authorized and commanded every believer to do the work of the ministry! God wants an entire army of workers out doing the vital work of DISCIPLESHIP of the saints and building up His Body, the Church.

Why are we so lackadaisical in our search for God? One possible answer is that we have yet to experience the beauty and power of God's manifest presence. Therefore, we don't understand that the reward of our seeking is worth every bit of our effort, and more.
"One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life to behold the beauty…Continue

One of the dimensions of living the way of Christ, besides living a life of love, forgiveness, and service is embracing the spirituality of DOWNWARD MOBILITY. This is a willingness to modify our career, change our location, or whatever other sacrifices we are called to make, for the sake of following Christ's purpose for our life (our destiny).
Jesus came so that His Blood may cover our sins. His grace and mercy overflow to us…Continue
