Hebrews 11:1 - “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen."
That word "evidence" means an outward sign or indication. Faith is something that furnishes proof. Faith is not an obscure or intangible concept that a Believer's hope will bring change. Rather, it is a reality or a sign of what the Believer…Continue

2 Timothy 1:9, "God...who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began."
The term "holy calling" could also be interpreted as "sacred DESTINY." The Lord considers it a sacred thing for us to enter into the divinely ordained purpose…

We must not look at the pressures of our times as though they were obstacles set to restrict us. For in the hands of the Almighty, these are the very tools He is using to perfect us.
But the same Spirit that predicted the perilous conditions at the end of the age also forecasts that, in spite of difficulties and battle, the Gospel of Christ's love will be proclaimed…Continue

Philippians 3:14 - "I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."
A season of trials is a SEASON of promotion. You will triumph if you don't quit, because God only allows you to face what you are prepared to face with Him. That measuring line is almost always higher than you expect it to be.…Continue

"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. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, in order that by them you might become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust."—2 Peter 1:3-4…Continue

From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics.
It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their church. Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality which the children could remember.…Continue

"Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee...." - 1 Timothy 4:14
For too long, Christians have been motivated by guilt, instead of responding to the unction of the Holy Spirit. As each of us yields to what God has CALLED us to be, then God will bring each part to fulfillment.…Continue

John 8:36 - "If the Son, therefore, shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed."
Loose yourself from all entanglements, soul ties, dead works, wrong relationships, wrong mindsets. Break free from everything that hinders the work of His Spirit in your lives. No weights, no cords, no bindings, no tubes connected, or having an access point into your lives.…Continue

"For she said within herself, 'If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.'" (Matthew 9:21)
To touch God, we are to be properly positioned to endure the "press." The woman with the issue of blood pressed past the multitudes to "touch Jesus." As a result, she was made whole. This woman was desperate. She suffered from an unclean condition and none of those who were considered…

"And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb…Continue

"Because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow COLD" (Matthew 24:12). A major area of spiritual warfare that has come against the Church is the sphere of church relationships.
There is no such thing as love without COMMITMENT. The measure of one's love is found in the depth of his or her commitment to others. It is not one's commitment that grows cold; it is…Continue

We all need to stay in the House of the Lord. None of us lives unto ourselves alone. We must be together in battle, and continually encouraged, trained, and nurtured in the context of OUR IDENTITY IN CHRIST IN God's House. "It's me and Jesus" has never been God's plan. The Bible uses the word "TOGETHER" 484 times:

God wants to bring us to a place to receive His power, power to overcome -- overcome sickness and financial difficulties, to heal marriages and to ask, seek, and knock,(Matthew 7:7) until we come to understand and begin carrying out His purpose for our life. God has positioned the church to be the light of the world and we will not be wounded soldiers but victorious warriors.

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." - Hebrews 11:1
Having faith means that we do not require proof prior to our actions. And as we stand in faith on the word of God, declaring it without doubt, we can expect evidence to be produced because of our faith (see Hebrews 11:3). It is pleasing to God that…Continue

Colossians 3:2: -"Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth."
God creates a new category in our thinking. It is called "Heavenly things." Then He slides new files into that folder. He gives us pictures of His heart, pictures of our DESTINY in Him, and pictures of His love, and shows us how His love flows from Him, through our heart, then…

God is calling us into a new season. He is calling us into a new day. He is asking us to begin to understand the power we carry in Jesus' name. We need to understand the power of His Spirit that longs to pour through us. As we tarry in His Spirit, we carry it out to a broken world. We don't look to the anointed and the appointed but look to the Author and the Finisher of your faith.
He has called us. He has…Continue
