SEEING YOUR TIME THROUGH HIM

"The light of the body is the eye: if therefore [your] eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness..." (Matthew 6:22-23 )



"See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil." (Ephesians 5:15-16)…

EIGHT WAYS CHRIST'S BLOOD AVAILS US

There are many Scriptural benefits concerning what the Blood of Jesus has done for us. According to Revelation 12:11, "And they (the believers) overcame him (the accuser of the brethren) because of the Blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even to death." We overcome by testifying what the Blood of Jesus has accomplished. His triumph over the powers of…

GOING THROUGH TRANSITION

"Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." - Isaiah 43:18-19 (NKJV)

When you go through transition, as Jesus did when going from the Jordan (baptism) to being drawn into the wilderness by the Spirit, it is a…

TAKING AUTHORITY OVER OUR RESPONSE TO TRIALS

"Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him." - James 1:2-5

This Greek word for…

RESPONDING TO PROPHETIC WORDS

"Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets." - Amos 3:7

Along with timing, it is key to understand the role we play as workers in God's Kingdom to see prophecy come to pass. Without understanding that prophecy requires action on our part, we might become upset when a prophetic word seems unfulfilled.…

JESUS – THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE

All the prophets of old prophetic utterances came to a fullness of time juncture when the young virgin agreed with Heaven and answered, "Let it be according to your Word" (Luke 1:38). And the Word became flesh and dwelt among men and brought with Him the fullness of the Father's prosperity.

What the world calls "the Christmas Season" was not the birthing of Christ; He was…

THE GREATEST PROMISE

"Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which is translated, "God with us." Matthew 1:23

God sent the prophet Isaiah to King Ahaz  (see Isaiah chapter 7) to tell him that God would protect them from the army that was coming against them. Scripture goes on to remind us of the Kingdom principle that is necessary to…

GOOD TIDINGS OF GREAT JOY

As we are called to step out into areas that are beyond our comfort zone, we may feel as if we are floundering for a season.

Yet God has called us to walk in His peace and JOY and to BRING HIS KINGDOM TO EARTH in each situation.  We could easily fall into discouragement if we do not stand in God's encouragement. And part of the way He fills and refreshes us is through His spirit of JOY. Joy in the midst of…

POSSESSING THE GATES IN YOUR LIFE

Many feel as if they are up against a gate in their life and are desperate to see breakthrough.  Your identity of being "in Christ" will set you up for breakthrough.

Hebrews 13:12 says, "And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through His own…

BEARING MORE REVELATION

The tendency to embrace the concept of God being an angry Father is done in equal proportion to a person's inability to demonstrate His power. There is a connection between our belief system and what actually flows through us. If we don't see Jesus' life as the ultimate illustration of the will of God, we will continually undermine our ability to display it.

The Holy Spirit always wants to demonstrate what God says. God…

Building The Inner Image

Romans 15:13 -- "May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing -- through the experience of your faith --that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope."



Hope is a divine dream. It's an inner image that's bigger than you are because it's built on the promises of God.…

Three Deceptions That Can Derail You From Your Destiny

Philippians 3:17 -- "Brethern, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us."



Paul faced a major problem in the first century. False teachers had slipped into the Church. The apostle warned the Philippians, and us by extension, to recognize the differences between a true man of God and a deceptive teacher or prophet. Without any sense of false humility, Paul declared that both his…

Ascending Higher

Ephesians 3:19 - "And to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fulness of God."



THERE IS A PLACE GREATER THAN KNOWLEDGE WHERE WE ABIDE IN CHRIST'S LOVE. THIS IS, INDEED, THE STRONGHOLD OF GOD. IT IS A PLACE WHERE OUR KNOWLEDGE OF GOD IS FULFILLED WITH THE SUBSTANCE OF GOD. WE CANNOT TRULY KNOW GOD WITHOUT, IN SOME WAY, ALSO EXPERIENCEING HIS PERSON. WE MUST SEEK HIM UNTIL WE PASS…

Perfected Forever

Hebrews 10:12,14 -- "But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God....For by one offering He hath perfected forever them that are sanctified."



God see us with no flaw, spot or imperfection, so we honor His Word and the finished work of Jesus by saying "Amen!"



To see ourselves as being far from perfect is not modesty, but a failure to understand the perfect sacrifice that…

Living In The Experienced Reality

Philippians 3:12 -- But I keep going on, trying to grasp that purpose for which Christ Jesus grasped me.



Psalm 63:1 -- O God, You are my God, earnestly will I seek You: my inner self thirsts for you, in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.




OBSERVATIONS



I do not want to just give mental assent to Christian doctrine.



I want to see, have contact with, and live in the…

Pause, Reflect, What Am I Doing?

1 Kings 19:9 9Then he came there to a cave and lodged there; and behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and He said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” (So the word of the Lord came to him “what are you doing here Elijah”.



This is one of the most important questions God will ever ask us. His questions probes the reality of our spiritual state. He is asking “how did your service to me become dry and desolate?”

Arise And Shine

Isaiah 60:1,2 - "Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the Lord will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you.....Then you will see and be radiant, And your heart will thrill and rejoice."



Our shining attracts His glory! And it's His glory released in and through us that brings about the greatest…

Simplicity That Is In Christ

2 Corinthians 11:3 -- "But I fear...your minds may be corrupted from the simplicitity that is in Christ."



The problem is that we mistakenly strive for information when in reality we need revelation.



Ephesians 1:17,18 -- "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being…

The Unseen World

Matthew 12:28 -- "If I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you."



The unseen world has influence over the visible.



The Kingdom is here and now.

We must acknowledge that it's in the invisible realm. Just as Jesus worked only through the Spirit of God, we need to do likewise as His agent.



The enemy's attempt to anchor our affections to the things that are visible is easily…
