"Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you...." - 2 Timothy 1:6
Every believer holds a position of authority that comes with God-given talents or gifts and is hidden in Christ Jesus, above all demonic authority. So why are so many of us INEFFECTIVE?
God didn't save and deliver you so you could preserve His gift in a sealed…Continue

Only with God-given discernment can we tell apart the good and evil influences that surround us. We often come up against "demonic influences". This influence is a spiritual force that twists and taints and pollutes God's ways. It is like a spider web, and people get stuck -- writhing in their captivity, they act out of a "web mentality".
Religious spirits endeavor to interfere…

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…Continue

Matthew 11:12 - "And from the days of John the Baptist until the present time, the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force (as a precious prize - a share in the heavenly kingdom is sought with most ardent zeal and intense exertion)."
The violence of the Kingdom is not physical violence but focused earnestness, a deeply passionate pursuit of God…

Song of Solomon 2:4 - "He brought me into the wine-cellars and set love in order within me." -- You come from your delightful fellowship with the King (Jesus) intoxicated with love -- for you have tasted of the finest wine. The King has brought you into His wine-cellars where you will drink deeply of Him.
The more we are swallowed up by His love, the more His light would come to the surface and…

"(Abraham) contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, 'So shall your descendants be.'" Romans 4:18
The enemy has launched a new version of an old "terrorist attack" on the Body of Christ in recent time, which contains a spirit of hopelessness for the future. This attack is to try and cause us to believe we don't even have a future…Continue

Luke 18: 1-8 - Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart saying: "There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, 'Get justice for me from my adversary.'
And he would not for a while, but afterward he said within himself, 'Though I do not…

Matthew 3:13-17 - 13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan [River], to be baptized by him. 14 But John tried to prevent Him [vigorously protesting], saying, “It is I who need to be baptized by You, and do You come to me?” 15 But Jesus replied to him, “Permit it just now; for this is the fitting way for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John permitted [it and baptized] Him. 16 After Jesus was baptized, He came up immediately out of…Continue

These are days of DESTINY, filled with wonder and excitement. The awe of God is returning to the people of God, filling the heart of God's people with great expectation.
Something new and revolutionary is at the door—but the question is not what is at the door, but Who.

Goliath first used fiery darts against David (his words of negativity), believing that the negativity alone would cause David to cower down! Goliath's negative words were meant to be a "first-blow" against…Continue

As many are facing giants today, we need to learn from David -- a man who knew how to handle giants.
As God gives us the spirit of David in 2021, He wants us to be personally offended at anything or anyone that keeps us from fulfilling His CALLING on our lives.
Saul and the army of Israel were all controlled by fear and their hearts…Continue

The term "holy calling" could also be interpreted "sacred DESTINY." The Lord considers it a sacred thing for us to enter into the divinely ordained function that He has destined for us. The prophet…Continue

What would life look like if we postured ourselves as "victorious ones" and declared WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST into this natural realm?
When we yield our lives before Jesus in prayer, He is then able to activate our calling in Christ and His heart of intercession. Inspired intercession is knowing God's plans and desires and declaring His will until it comes to pass. We can never give up or lose hope. Instead, we stand on His…Continue
