Revelation 1:6 - "And has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve His God and Father -- to Him be glory and power forever and ever! Amen."
Mary was chosen to bring forth the Son of God into the world in human flesh. Jesus Christ was a living, breathing move of God. Every place He went heaven was brought forth on the earth. He was also conceived within every born-again believer at the…Continue

It is imperative that we realize our personal identity in Christ. In Colossians 2:9 we discover this central fact concerning Christ Jesus: "For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily."
Our outlook on life is changed as we contemplate: "And you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power." (Colossians…Continue

John 12:21 tells us that a delegation from the Greek community came to the disciples and said, "We wish to see Jesus."
If there is an intense yearning within us, then there must be something to respond to that aspiration or we would not possess it.
"As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O…Continue

Mark 8:15 - “Watch out! Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.”
In saying “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod” He was warning them about influences of the mind that can rob us of the understanding of revelation and renewal. …Continue

There are doctrines today that allow Christians to sit back and do nothing. They defend this cool, casual leave-it-all-to-God attitude with Bible passages. Such an outlook is entirely foreign to the spirit of the New Testament.
The ultimate purpose of ministry should not be to teach people how to get things from God. The aim of the Christian life is to give and to equip fellow…Continue

The decisions we make, the places we go, and the things we say -- create images in our subconscious. First, we think a thought; then we rehearse it until it begins to formulate an image. Finally, our words speak things into existence and our actions set dynamics into motion. We are to present and display the Kingdom of God that dwells within us, releasing it in powerful demonstrations.
We are not…Continue

"My Beloved spake, and said unto me, 'Rise up, My love, My fair one, and come away.'" Song of Solomon 2:10
The Lord has something far better to offer us if we will respond to His call to "rise up" with Him into a higher realm of spiritual reality. To this pressing call, He adds a word of encouragement:
"For, lo, the winter is…

The main idea for breakthrough comes from the breakthrough of water from 2 Samuel 5:20: "So David went to Baal Perazim (which means "possessor of the breaches"), and David defeated them there; and he said, "The LORD has broken through my enemies before me, like a breakthrough of water."

And He said to them all, "If any man will [willingly choose to] come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me." Luke 9:23
Each of us who desires to personally know and serve the Lord must first make this life-changing decision to "take up our cross." When we willingly do this, our present relationship to the Lord, and…Continue

Genesis 32:24 And Jacob was left alone. And a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day. When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he touched his hip socket, and Jacob's hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. Then he said, "Let me go, for the day has broken." But Jacob said, "I will not let you go unless you bless me."

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 fear God…Continue

We Believers have generally been too focused on and conscious of the imperfections of our lives. Repenting from our sins head-on is important and vital, but there is a whole other glorious side to our relationship with God that goes unrecognized by many.

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…Continue

As followers of Christ, we are not immune from the difficulties of life. Scripture clearly declares that "all that will live godly in this present world shall suffer difficulty" (2 Timothy 3:12). Nevertheless, in the midst of troubles, God always provides a way of escape. The escape, however, is neither the absence of adversity nor the final end of problems. The escape is not a path toward a problem-free life; the "escape" is the…Continue

Luke 11:1 states: "Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when He finished, one of His disciples said to Him, 'Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.'"
This is our prayer, "Lord, teach us how to pray." -- we do not want to pray in our old ways, asking and begging. We want to come before Him as His Bride, drawing near to…Continue

Life can get busy and noisy! In 2023 this is the world that we live in, the world we get used to. How we deal with the busyness and noise makes all the difference in how we are able to walk with awareness of God's presence.

What would life look like if we postured ourselves as "victorious ones" and declared WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST into this natural realm?
We can never give up or lose hope. Instead, we stand on His promises and prophesy them into the unseen realm until they become reality in the natural realm.
Mark 11:24 states, "And whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you…
