Do Demons Know Your Name?

Known in hell – Demons must know Your name!

known in hell

Acts 19: 13 A group of Jews was traveling from town to town casting out evil spirits. They tried to use the name of the Lord Jesus in their incantation, saying, “I command you in the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches, to come out!”

14 Seven sons of Sceva, a leading priest, were doing this. 15 But one time when they tried it, the evil spirit replied, “I know Jesus, and I know Paul, but who are you?” 16 Then the man with the evil spirit leaped on them, overpowered them, and attacked them with such violence that they fled from the house, naked and battered.

Christianity is not a religion. It is not a dogma, or set of incantations and vain repetive prayers.

It is a living, vital relationship with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, resulting in authority over spirits of darkness, and demonstrations of Holy Spirit in each place and generation it is lived.

Jesus miracles2

True authority does not come from religious structure nor political might, but only through what Jesus still speaks from His throne, where eternal judgements and demonstrations of true power originate.

Walking with God will cause hell to tremble, if you are doing it right.

Do Demons Know Your Name?

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, I want to know You more.  I want my life to make a difference in Light of Eternity. Lord Jesus, come into my life and display Your power and authority, through me, today. Amen’

The Creative Power of the Word of God

2 Kings 4:42 One day a man from Baal-shalishah brought the man of God a sack of fresh grain and twenty loaves of barley bread made from the first grain of his harvest. Elisha said, “Give it to the people so they can eat.”

43 “What?” his servant exclaimed. “Feed a hundred people with only this?”

But Elisha repeated, “Give it to the people so they can eat, for this is what the Lord says: Everyone will eat, and there will even be some left over!” 44 And when they gave it to the people, there was plenty for all and some left over, just as the Lord had promised.

Matthew 4:4

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

2 Peter 1:4

whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

John 10:27 (AKJV)

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

obey hear voice

God did not create the universe from nothing.

We are so limited by sense knowledge, things we can touch, taste, see, feel, smell and hear through mere natural reasoning’s….

No, God created all material things, all life from a higher realm of matter, a substance called Spirit, for God is spirit and those who worship Him, must worship Him in spirit and in truth.

Throughout our lifetime, God is pouring out His spirit upon all flesh, drawing us to Himself, and even as we have natural senses, deep within our hearts, there are premonitions of supernatural senses, as our heart of hearts, our human spirit hungers for the true realities of our Creator.

Jesus is the bridge, the only way to fully communicate between our infinite God and His Spirit, and this natural world.

Over our lifetime, the supernatural, our sixth sense so to speak, often becomes visible, as we experience dreams, divine interventions, déjà-vu experiences as the Holy Spirit alerts us to spiritual realities, to reveal the glories of heaven, should we but ask for them…

It is when heaven invades earth, that things get interesting.

Days northern lights

In this account, we have a man of God, Elisha, walking closely with heaven, and its infinite resource. He understands not only that God is Creator, but that the WAY He creates is by speaking….

When He speaks, Holy Spirit takes from the realm of Spirit, and literal creates whatever He commissions.

While the people in this story had a natural hunger and need, they only saw natural supply and provision. There was not enough…

Yet, they spoke their natural reasoning’s in the presence of a man who had his spiritual senses alive and active!

He saw the throne of God, He heard intuitively the heart and intent of our Father for this situation: People were about to taste and see the goodness of the Lord and their natural hunger was about to be satisfied, as God spoke through Elisha, and Holy Spirit created the supply of food needed to feed everyone, completely, with no lack.

Further down the corridor of time, Jesus would perform this miracle several times, during His earthly ministry in dividing the loaves and fishes, yet His method was the same:

He saw heaven’s agenda (He only did the will of the Father), He believed and spoke what He saw, and the entrance of God’s voice, His living word into the earth, created the material provision needed.

fatherhood God

This is how we are to live!

In tune, in step with heaven, only doing the will of our heavenly Father.

Like Jesus, seeking the will of our Father, carefully, daily, and ONLY doing and saying what we hear Him commission us to do and say.

As we do, the Bible becomes a living book, as He breaths upon its pages and passages, illuminating promises, and creating supernatural pathways for us to walk upon through the entrance of His word becoming a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our paths.

What is He saying to you today?

Hearing the Voice of God

Speak it out!

Just like Elisha and Jesus, He will create that which He commissions you to speak.

Let’s pray:

‘Father, Jesus promised that we should not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of Your mouth.  Lord Jesus, You have promised that You would be our shepherd, our personal pastor in this life, and that we would hear Your voice, and the voice of a stranger, we would not follow. We are listening Lord, and now, we speak that which You are saying to us, and through us to meet the needs of this hurting world. Amen.

The Jeep Saga – A Missionary Moment – Help Needed

The Jeep Saga –

Well, here I sit, in Yatehey, NM, believing God for my jeep to be fixed today.

Been a real adventure so far.

Two weeks ago, we planned a trip to Page, AZ to meet with national native leaders for a conference, to give copies of my new book to elders as protocol gifts, and to renew friendships as we went.

poster

Before leaving Tulsa, for the 1036 mile drive each way, I had a good friend who is mechanically minded check everything out. We had the oil change done, but there was a rattle in the motor that concerned me. Turned out the rotor bug clip was broken off inside my distributer cap, so we changed cap, rotor and wires, as I had put in platinum plugs last month for the Canada trip.

We went to his uncles muffler shop, to check out the rattle in the exhaust, and it was determined that it was the catalytic converter acting up, but he was booked up that day, and I needed to get outta town. Decided to chance it, and make the conference schedule, and GO!

I teach that faith without works is dead, and my version of this, it that you ALWAYS do what you can, with what you have, trusting God to supply and help with what you do not have. You can’t just sit there!

In hindsight, I should have waited for him to fix it next day.

To break up the drive, we had booked a night in a hotel in Amarillo, Texas, May 27th, as it was my birthday, and we celebrated with the included breakfast!

By the time we reached Amarillo, the catalytic converter was causing the engine to run hot, and making lots of noise.

A good friend had sent some money for my birthday, so Karen and I were up early, to find a Laundromat, and a muffler shop to get this thing fixed.

And so the ordeal began. Found a muffler shop recommended by a guy at the Laundromat, and they put on a new catalytic converter. Thought we were doing well, as they only charged me $180 for an aftermarket part.

By Santa Rosa, NM I was losing power, and the engine was overheating. Found a shop there, and we checked fire on each cylinder, while we had spark, there was yet no power, and engine running rough.

Did a compression test. No compression on cylinders 3,4 and 5. Ugh!

When we tried to discover why, we found that that muffler shop in Amarillo, had done a nasty. They had replaced my new platinum spark plugs, with a mismatched bunch of plugs, and one of them had broken inside a cylinder. Also looked like we had a blown head gasket between cylinders 3 and 4.

Made it to Albequerque, blowing blue smoke. Used 2 quarts of oil in only 3 hours. Stopped at a Panera, to get on WiFi, and to calm down. Engine running rough (Jay said: ‘Dad, are we driving a tractor out to the Navajo nation?’)

Prayed for a couple hours, and Karen felt impressed to call some friends to stay for the night.

Phew! Showers, coffee, and air conditioning made something brutal, bearable.

They were leaving town next day, so we had to leave, and I did not have peace to drive on to Page. I asked the Lord what to do, as we were supposed to be staying with Navajo elders that night, and I was determined not to dishonor them.

Holy Spiirt said: ‘Lewis is the elder hosting you to the Navajo nation, call him, and submit to what he asks you to do.’

So, I called him, and he counseled me to press through to Gallup, NM, and he would help me. We eventually limped into Gallup (driving 50mph in a 75), four hours later, and made it to their home here on Navajo land.

Tried to rent a car in Albequerque, but it would not accept my debit card.

So, we  found an AutoZone, and they had a couple of mechanics come over. We replaced the broken plug, put in a can of Lucas stop leak, bought a gallon of oil, and drove.

Well, the jeep was now firmly parked in Lewis driveway, and we had a number of mechanics come to try and diagnose the problem.

At that point, I only had $200 left, not enough to buy gas to get home, much less  pay repairs.

Lewis called around, and a salvage yard had a head they agreed to sell us for $150, in a ‘U-pull-it’ yard.

So, off we went, to pull this head out of a scrapped jeep.

Two days in the hot sun, we got it off. The owner only charged us $100.

Then, we tore down my motor, and discovered that despite the Youtube videos that had counseled us that this was a cracked head, we had bullet sized hole in the top of piston number 5.

motor

Time for another motor.

Called back the salvage yard, and he had another vehicle that had been rolled, that had a good motor in it, but he was selling it for $800. After discussion, he agreed to lower the price to $600, and give me $100 credit if I brought the head back.

So, 2 more days in the hot sun, pulling this motor out of this wrecked jeep. The guys there were awesome! They lifted the wrecked jeep up on their forklift so that we could work on the bottom half in the shade, and they gave us tons of counsel and loan of tools to get those brutally hard to reach ‘star’ bolts out from the top of the transmission.

IMG_20150530_141624

I have never been a mechanic, but I sure got a crash course, and the learning curve has been steep.

IMG_20150530_141647 (1)

Pulling the head outta the first wrecked jeep.

In the midst of this, $200 had come in donations, which amounted to $193 after Paypal got theirs.

So, the salvage yard owned said that if we removed all the accessories from the motor (starter, AC, water pump, intake and exhaust manifolds, fuel rail, etc) he would sell me the block and head for $400.

IMG_20150606_130548 (1)

Pulling the motor outta the second jeep

I gave him my $193 to hold the motor, then Lewis loaned me the $107 so that we could get this motor home.

So, Lewis borrowed a pick-up truck, and we got it hauled back here to the house.

Then, we took out the block and everything on my jeep, and we were done.

We knew, from the complexity of removing everything, we were not skilled enough to install the replacement motor. Too many plugs on the wiring harness, cooling system, transmission, phew!

We needed a mechanic, who we could trust.

More fervent prayer!

A friend of ours, Melvin Yashie Hill, has a brother that is a good mechanic, but his shop is in Ganado, AZ, 45 miles from here.

I now had no money to pay him, and I don’t write faith checks.

He agreed to install the new motor for $250, and he showed up here with his truck, and loaded the jeep and all the parts and towed it to Ganado, where he has been working on it for the past couple of days.

So, presently, I am penniless, in some violent faith for these repairs, and travel expenses back to Tulsa, and on to St. Louis, where I will fly to Denmark next week. I had put up a prayer request for Denmark, and perhaps God has had me fulfilling my own request, because we have PRAYED, day and night these past two weeks, over in the Holy Spirit in other tongues.

Denmark pray

What was to be a fun adventure in faith, has now been two weeks staying uninvited with some precious Navajo elders and their family here in Yatehey, NM.

Yet, God is love,and works all things together for good when we love Him.

What is really needed, is a more reliable vehicle….so, we pray for it, and deal with the hand we are dealt.

Gotta admit though, it has sure bumped up my prayer life. Day and night for the past two weeks we have prayed in other tongues, crying out to God for provision and grace to get through this particular trial.

If the Lord leads you to help us financially at this time, we surely need it.

Give in faith!

1 Corinthians 9:11 If we have sown [the seed of] spiritual good among you, [is it too] much if we reap from your material benefits?

1 Corinthians 9:14 [On the same principle] the Lord directed that those who publish the good news (the Gospel) should live (get their maintenance) by the Gospel.

Paul goes on to say, that he did not use his position as a minister of the gospel to take up offerings, rather he worked, making tents, to support himself. You might notice here, that Paul was not married, nor did he have children. Family responsibilities take time, and just as you bust a move on your job to provide for your family, I work every bit as hard, doing this, faithful to the Lord in prayer and the ministry of His Word, to you.

I will never charge for this: it my responsibility to God, my calling. Freely I have been given, now, I freely give…

As you give, hear Holy Spirit what to give, and honestly expect God to reward you for your giving.

Matt 10: 41 He who receives and welcomes and accepts a prophet because he is a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward, and he who receives and welcomes and accepts a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42 And whoever gives to one of these little ones [in rank or influence] even a cup of cold water because he is My disciple, surely I declare to you, he shall not lose his reward.

I am a five-fold ministry gift and office – this is my life – I pray, I hear, I write, and wonderful things happen. You have your job description, I have mine – this is mine….

I have ‘see through’ faith for you, in this: Gal 3: 9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

I believe I have a responsibility before God to be like Jesus, in every offering I receive. I receive it with thanksgiving, just like Jesus did the little boys lunch.

Then, because I walk and live by faith according to the blessing of Abraham, I believe that God will take your seed sown, and multiply it, according to what the blessing of Abraham promises:

Genesis 22:17 In blessing I will bless you and in multiplying I will multiply your descendants like the stars of the heavens and like the sand on the seashore. And your Seed (Heir) will possess the gate of His enemies

It has been a joy to me, to see the hand of the living God act in the lives of those of you who have supported us this year!

Many have seen tremendous blessing come into your households, and for this we give thanks, and give Jesus all the glory!

God’s Word Is Medicine!

God’s Word is medicine

heal medicine

Now this medicine is wonderful medicine. You cannot overdose, and it has wonderful side effects like wisdom, peace, prosperity and so on.

Proverbs 4:

21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life

.guard1

Health = marpe: a medicine, a cure, a deliverance, a healing, a remedy, with the sense of soundness and wholeness.

Though I am no Hebrew scholar, my study in Strong’s only shows five verses that this verse is used in. The one above, and the following four verses.

1. Proverbs 12:18 There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.

This is a beautiful verse, when you insert the definition of the word ‘marpe’ into it. Our words, spoken gently, become healing, a remedy, a deliverance, soundness and wholeness to people, and the wisdom of God spoken, will literally produce healing in every area of life.

wise words

2. Proverbs 13:17 A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health.In the new testament, or covenant we read: The old Testament, is the new testament concealed, the new testament the old testament revealed.

2 Corinthians 5:20

Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God

Ambassadors represent the country that sends them. As citizens of heaven, ambassadors of Christ, we are good news where we are sent, for the kingdom of heaven has no sickness. When God sends us to someone sick or suffering, we heal the sick!

ambassador1

When we reconcile someone to God, the author of all health and life, they get healed!

3. Proverbs 16:24 Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Again we see marpe being used for healing of the bones. Why the bones? Science shows us that in the marrow of our bones is where our blood is produced. Scripture tells us that life is in the blood. Healthy bones equal new fresh blood, Life to all of our bodies!

4.Malachi 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall

.Mal 4-2

Jesus rose from the dead! He is alive! He is the Son of righteousness risen with healing, a remedy, medicine, a deliverance, and soundness in His wings.

Let’s Pray:

Father, I ask You to heal me today! I believe I receive my healing, for I ask in Your name Lord Jesus. As You are working in me, I choose to take the medicine of Your Word, the comfort and anesthetic of Holy Spirit today, trusting You, who cannot lie, to fully bring it to pass. Amen

Desire His gifts and His Power!

Mighty Holy Spirit!

Desire His gifts and His Power!

Holy Spirit

1 Corinthians 12:31

Now eagerly desire the greater gifts. [ Love Is Indispensable ]

Holy Spirit is a person! He is alive, and longs to get actively involved in our lives each day as we seek Him!

1 Corinthians 14:1

[ Intelligibility in Worship ] Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy.

As we walk with Jesus each day, He creates good works for us to walk in.

Ephesians 2:10 [Full Chapter]

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Some of these ‘good works’ are going to be supernatural acts of power, signs, wonders and miracles!

Spirit led1

Let’s Pray:

Precious Holy Spirit, use me today in your gifts today. I ask for them, and make myself available to you, for your use, however you see fit. Release mighty acts of power in the earth today, anointing to trouble every trouble, in Your name Lord Jesus!

You have promised good works. May I recognize and walk in these today. Amen!

Working on Goals….

goal time

Just like God is trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, so are we. We are a spirit, have a soul, and live in a body.

Each of these areas need to come under the Lordship of Jesus, and I must admit, I have let my fitness level over the years go to the point, that I had a stroke in 2009, mostly because of violating natural law. Can’t work 80 hour weeks, live on fast food, coffee and energy drinks for a couple years, and expect good results. I’ve now lost 45 lbs, and am yearly, setting fitness goals, as well as spiritual goals.

I have noticed that strength training is all about 3 things: Brutal workouts, clean eating, good rest. Seems as a missionary, it is very difficult to control these three all at once…

My fitness goals are simple: 1. Be able to bench 315lbs, 5 times, 2. Run a 5km run under 25mins.

So, as I read:
Ecclesiastes 11 (AKJV)

11 Cast thy bread upon the waters:
for thou shalt find it after many days.

2 Give a portion to seven, and also to eight;
for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.

3 If the clouds be full of rain,
they empty themselves upon the earth:
and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north,
in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be.

4 He that observeth the wind shall not sow;
and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap

You can’t wait for perfect conditions, to do what you can with what you’ve got. Pyramided up and got 315 again on bench this week – one time. Would like to be stronger, but it is better to be doing something with what I can do, than nothing, waiting for perfect conditions…

Whatever your goals are, do SOMETHING towards them, today.

do or do not

Let’s pray:

‘Father God, You created me, and You gave me today, a clean slate to write upon. Jesus, I submit to Your Lordship, and Your plan for my life, and ask You for direction, wisdom, strength, health, and clarity, to set and work on Your plan and goals for my life today. Amen’

Patriotism is not enough! We must have Jesus!

I read this testimony and had to post it here!

citizens

“Greater love hath no man that this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).
“When we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son” (Romans 5:10).

When nations are engaged in deadly strife, it is common for patriots to declare that he who gives his life for defense of his country may be certain of a home in heaven because of having made the supreme sacrifice. This teaching is in accord with the principles of the Moslem religion and not with true Christianity. Mahomet promised his fanatical followers a place in Paradise if they died for the faith in conflict with the “infidels” who rejected his teachings. Patriotism is a virtue of which any man may well be proud.

But patriotism, praiseworthy as it is from the human standpoint, will never fit the soul for the presence of God. It can never wash away the guilt of sin. The testimony of Edith Cavell, the brave British nurse who was killed by the Germans during the former world war, is well worth considering in this connection.

Edith

This noble woman was born in Swardeston, Norfold, on December 4, 1865. She entered the London Hospital for nurses’ training in 1895. In 1907 she was appointed first matron of the Berkendael Medical Institute at Brussels, Belgium. This became the Red Cross Hospital in Belgium at the outbreak of the conflict in 1914. From August of that year, until August, 1915, Nurse Cavell helped to care for wounded French, Belgian, English and German soldiers alike. She ministered faithfully even to those who had fallen while fighting against her own nation. Naturally, her sympathies were with the Allies, and in cooperation with the efforts of Prince Reginald de Croy, she aided many derelict English and French soldiers who had fled from the Germans. These escaped by “underground” methods to the Dutch frontier, where, with the aid of guides, they were conveyed across to Britain. When some of these fugitives were traced to her house in Brussels, she was immediately arrested and after a court-martial was sentenced to face a firing-squad. All her kindness to the German wounded was forgotten. Her captors considered her a spy and treated her accordingly.

Just before the bandage was placed over her eyes, as she stood fearlessly facing the solders who were about to take her life, she gave a last message to the world. “I am glad,” she said, “to die for my country. But as I stand here I realize as never before that patriotism is not enough.” Then she went on to give a clear, definite testimony to her personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and her assurance of salvation, not through laying down her life for others, but because He laid down His life for her. In perfect composure, she submitted to the bandaging of her eyes and, in a few moments fell, pierced by many German bullets.

Her words, patriotism is not enough! have spoken loudly to may in the years that have gone since she died a martyr to her convictions.

“What more is needed?” you may ask. The answer is “Christ!” It is through faith in Him alone that the soul is saved and heaven assured.

H.A. Ironside, Illustrations of Bible Truth, Moody Press, 1945, pp. 60-61.

Here in America, I see tremendous love for this country exhibited, but this, alone will not be enough to save this country!

This nation was founded upon the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ!

save

Jesus has indeed risen from the dead, and He is alive!

Here, as I have tossed and turned upon my bed, I find myself at 3 Am, writing, because His Word is a fire shut up in my bones!

Jesus alone is the answer for America, there is no plan B from heaven, no secondary hope. He is the only way!

It is time to cry out again to heaven for His plan, His call, His fire, His destiny for your life, no compromise.

There is no more time for side tracks, we must be in His face, now!

Let’s pray:

‘Father, You alone are the answer for this sin-sick, messed up world. Burn in me, infuse in me, fresh fire! Blaze through me your passion, purpose, and power that this world might see again that You are alive, active, and Lord over the affairs of men. It has been said, that desperate times call for desperate actions! This is my cry, show me what I must do, my cross, my place to stand for You, and then use me for Your glory! Jesus, I know I am heard, for I have asked this in Your name, Amen’

America is Great, because America is Good!

Righteousness Exalts a Nation!

flag pray

Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.

AMERICA
The United States and its citizens

French writer Alexis de Tocqueville, after visiting America in 1831, said, “I sought for the greatness of the United States in her commodious harbors, her ample rivers, her fertile fields, and boundless forests–and it was not there. I sought for it in her rich mines, her vast world commerce, her public school system, and in her institutions of higher learning–and it was not there. I looked for it in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution–and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great!”

Alexis de Tocqueville.

This quote may be old, yet it is still true, and I still believe that America is good!

I do not believe this based upon the insanity I see in the Media, or the corruption and treachery I see in politics. I base this upon the fire I still see in the churches, the flaming pulpits of righteousness that still burn with fresh fire taken from the living coals of God’s alters of prayer.

My faith is no longer in the leaders of this nation, but in good, solid, hard-working American’s who still value truth, honor, honesty, hard-work, love, sacrifice, and concern for our fellow man.

Yes, our families are under attack, our government has been shown to be less than perfect, some churches, have laid down their swords, and given up the fight for holiness, and given into to moral compromise.

But I have not!

And I am convinced that I am not alone!

Righteousness exalts a nation, and Jesus is our ever living Lord.

I am calling on good, American people to serve Jesus, and to turn this vile tide of wickedness away from this nation once again.

founding

One by one, person by person, we can decide to live right before God, and any one of us, walking with the Creator of the universe, becomes a majority, as His power displayed justifies, vindicates, and delivers us from wickedness both within our hearts, and from the hearts of those around us.

Love holiness, seek purity, and regain the fire of His presence that will burn through your eyes, as His passion blazes through you.

You will see Jesus, staring back at you in the mirror in the morning, His fire in your eyes, His voice speaking boldly in Your heart, His courage blazing bright for all to see.

Others will see Him too, and want what you have, no matter how much they try and deny Him in their own compromised lives, they cannot deny Him in Yours!

Our church, has embraced the cross, and is again preaching we become people of the cross.

Luke 12:For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? 50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished! 51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

fire in the earth

Burn bright for Jesus today!

Preach to someone! Tell them about His life, His love, His power, and demonstrate it with bold prayers for the miraculous, and watch Him show up and show out in Your life!

Let’s pray!

‘Father, if it is going to be, begin it with me. I’m not looking to this government, my family, even my church, for solutions to America’s problems any more, but I am looking to You, Creator of heaven and earth. Burn like a fire in me. Make me good! Give me places to speak Your word, people who need to see Your power, may my life blaze with love for You, Your passion and zeal in my very eyes. I ask this, knowing I am heard, for I ask in Your name Lord Jesus, Amen’

The Power of the Cross is VICTORY!

THE POWER OF THE CROSS is VICTORY!

cross ray

The message of the cross, must be mixed with faith, in a very living, and active God in this: For the sinner, or oppressor in a historic, or temporal setting, they must see the truth of God’s holiness, and fear Him enough to ask forgiveness, and let those they are oppressing go free. This takes faith, when much money is being generated from their labor and oppression. They must believe the 1. What they are doing is wrong AND 2. That God is love, and well able to supply and provide for them more than they give up monetarily through their oppression.


Like wise, for the oppressed. When their cries reach heaven, and God moves in power to deliver them from the hands of their oppressors, they must forgive their enemies, but with understanding that when they obey God and forgive their enemies, that He, the Creator of Heaven and earth, is well able to create, provide, and bless them, far greater, than what was stolen and robbed from them.  My friend Quincy AfraidofLightning is right, grace is the gospel, Grace being the power of God made available to any person, anyway, that will look to Jesus, to receive His power, love, and creativity, wisdom, restoration, to literally recreate a new and beautiful way for anyone, anywhere that will believe.

‘Father, where I have been wicked, oppressive, greedy, making money on those less fortunate than I, please forgive me, AND show me how to love, empower them, and how to walk with You into true prosperity, riches, and wealth.


Father, to those who have killed, stolen, and oppress me, my family and my people, I cry out to you for deliverance, true justice from Your throne. I choose to forgive them, as an act of my will, knowing that You are alive, You hear, and You care. In my forgiveness, I look to You, Creator of Heaven and earth, to do for me what I cannot do for myself. I need Your grace, your power, Your love, Your provision, and Your prosperity to create for me prosperity, wisdom, grace, health, strength, and the bright and glorious future You have promised as I seek to walk with you and fully obey.  I ask all of this, knowing I am heard and answered, for I ask in Your wonderful and matchless name Lord Jesus, Amen’

IN HIM we live and move and Have our being!

In Whom We Live and Move and Have Our Being!

in Him

Let’s get into the Word of God:

Ps 18:2  The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Mt 3:17  And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Mt 12:18  Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.

Mt 17:5  While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

Mr 1:11  And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Because of Jesus, God has adopted you into His family. You are His child. Because of the blood of Jesus, you have complete and total access to the throne of God. May you hear in your heart, the same words Father God spoke of Jesus over 2000 years ago.

“This is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased”. This is my beloved daughter, in whom I am well pleased.”son

As you put God’s word in your mouth, and proclaim His promises, Mt. 12:18 and 17:5 is true of you, ‘Behold my servant, whom I have chosen, my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased, he (or she) shows forth my judgements to the Gentiles, hear him”

Isa 45:11  Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.

claim

 Do it respectfully, humbly, with a good attitude. Remember, He is our Father, and He loves us! Yet, He loves to be trusted and believed! Any fire, passion and zeal you exhibit, needs to be against the world, the flesh and the devil, for God cannot lie, and He loves us!

pray the Word

God is waiting to hear His word echoed out of the earth from and to heaven, that he may display His acts of power to this generation. When His word is spoken in authority here in the earth, He backs it up in power.

Even angels listen for the Word of God given voice in the earth, for they are ministering spirits sent forth from God to minister for us, the promises of God.

Ps 103:20  Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

Heb 1: 13  But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

14    Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

Heb 1-14

Let’s see this again in another familiar passage of Scripture,

Acts 2:17  And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

18  And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

19  And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

20  The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:

21  And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.spirit

See it here, the divine connection. God pours out His Spirit upon us, and we prophesy (that is, speak His Word), He backs up His word with His power (which includes angels), as He shows forth wonders in heaven above, and signs here in the earth beneath, all for one main purpose, that many shall call on the name of the Lord, and be saved.

future Psalm 102

In light of eternity, you are one of the redeemed, saved from death, hell and the grave. Yet you are also a child of destiny, called into God’s great redemptive plan to work with Him in the redemption of others. This will involve using His authority, granted to you through Christ, over the world, the flesh and the devil. Therefore it is essential child of God that you see yourself as you truly are in Him, that you can understand and exercise your rights and privileges as His royal heir.

Let’s continue to look at your identity, in Him, by studying what the Word of God says of the following: In Him, In whom, and In Christ.

royalty

2Co 4:4  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Notice, here, that those people who are not born-again, are not in Him. They are literally found spiritually, in darkness. Satan is referred to as the god of this world, and he works through deception and lies. There is no power encounter required between God and the devil, rather it is a truth encounter that makes freedom available. This verse shows again how Satan, the father of lies works. Through thoughts, in the minds of people, he convinces them of the irrationality the simplicity of Jesus brings to any individual that simply believes.

Ro 12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

1Co 2:16  For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

Let’s agree with the Word of God, revealed to us here.

Declare, ‘Thank-you Father, that the glorious light of the gospel of Christ, has shone upon me. I believe that I am not conformed to this world and it’s way of thinking, but am being transformed by the renewing of my mind. By faith, I declare, that I have the mind of Christ.:

Eph 1:7  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Col 1:14  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Let’s declare, “Thank-you Father for my redemption through the precious blood of Jesus, for forgiving my sins, and for the riches of your grace towards me.”

Eph 1:11  In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

Let’s declare, “Thank-you Father for my inheritance, that you have already decided to give to me in Jesus. I believe I receive it, now.”

Eph 1:13  In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

Let’s declare, “Father, because I trust in you, having heard the truth, I have been sealed by the Holy Spirit you promised.”

Eph 2:21  In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

1Pe 2:2  As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

Let’s declare, “Father, I desire the sincere milk of your word, and I thank-you for growing me up in you.”

Eph 2:22  In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

2Co 6:16  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

1Pe 2:5  Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

Let’s declare, “I thank you Father, for building me up in you, a temple of the Holy Spirit here in the earth. Thank-you for make me a living stone, your spiritual house, a priest made acceptable to you by Jesus Christ. I praise you, and worship you for what you have done, offering up a spiritual sacrifice to you. Hallelujah!”

Eph 3:12  In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.

Pr 28:1  The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

Declare, “Though I am meek, I am not weak, and I am faithful to you. Thank-you for boldness to live for you today.”

Col 2:3  In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Pr 2:3  Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

4  If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

5  Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

Isa 45:3  And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

Let’s pray, for in these verses are great provisions and change for your life.

“Father, I see that in Jesus, are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I seek knowledge and understanding, that I might understand your fear O Lord, and find the knowledge of God. Please grant me treasures out of darkness, and your hidden riches from secret places, that it might be known that you Lord, which call me by name, are the God of Israel.”

Joh 20:29  Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

1Pe 1:8  Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

Let’s pray, “Father, I have not seen you, yet I believe, and am blessed beyond what I can ask or think. I love you, for you are so good to me, granting me joy unspeakable and full of glory.”

Mt 14:2  And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

In this passage, people were wondering who Jesus was, for they had seen the presence of God at work in the ministry of John the Baptist, convicting of sin and calling people to repentance. Yet, for the sake of this study, I will use this text to assure you that our Lord Jesus is still a miracle man, God the Son, and mighty works still shew forth themselves in him.

Acts 2:22  Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

Everywhere Jesus went in His earthly ministry, miracles were wrought. You too are a son or daughter of God. Everywhere you go, miracles should be wrought.

How? By faith, and by the operation of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit, working in the earth, gives gifts to his church, nine in all. They are listed here.

1 Cor 12:7  But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

8  For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

9  To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10  To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11  But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

030713MiraclesOfJesus480x340

The Scripture admonishes us to earnestly desire these gifts, while walking in the love of God. 1 Corinthians 12:31  But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

It must then, be a regular practice of every Christian to seek God for His spiritual gifts, to aid a hurting humanity. The working of miracles is one of these gifts. God wants to use you to heal the sick, divide the loaves and fishes, turn water into wine, whatever it takes to meet human need, and to both glorify Him and turn many to Him. We have not, because we ask not, it is time to regularily ask God for miracles to abound in our daily lives. John 14:12  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Let’s pray, “Father, I see that miracles are your calling card in the earth, and I want to be like Jesus, in the working of miracles. I ask you Holy Spirit to do miracles in my life, manifesting the greater works Jesus promised for my generation. Amen”

Homework:

  1. Go lay hands on some sick people, pray for someones finances, believe for a marriage to be restored, whatever He leads you to do, and see the awesome power of God displayed in your life.

2. Testify over the remainder of how God is continuing to manifest miraculously through your life.

Give in faith!

1 Corinthians 9:11 If we have sown [the seed of] spiritual good among you, [is it too] much if we reap from your material benefits?

1 Corinthians 9:14 [On the same principle] the Lord directed that those who publish the good news (the Gospel) should live (get their maintenance) by the Gospel.

Paul goes on to say, that he did not use his position as a minister of the gospel to take up offerings, rather he worked, making tents, to support himself. You might notice here, that Paul was not married, nor did he have children. Family responsibilities take time, and just as you bust a move on your job to provide for your family, I work every bit as hard, doing this, faithful to the Lord in prayer and the ministry of His Word, to you.

I will never charge for this: it my responsibility to God, my calling. Freely I have been given, now, I freely give…

As you give, hear Holy Spirit what to give, and honestly expect God to reward you for your giving.

Matt 10: 41 He who receives and welcomes and accepts a prophet because he is a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward, and he who receives and welcomes and accepts a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42 And whoever gives to one of these little ones [in rank or influence] even a cup of cold water because he is My disciple, surely I declare to you, he shall not lose his reward.

I am a five-fold ministry gift and office – this is my life – I pray, I hear, I write, and wonderful things happen. You have your job description, I have mine – this is mine….

I have ‘see through’ faith for you, in this: Gal 3: 9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

I believe I have a responsibility before God to be like Jesus, in every offering I receive. I receive it with thanksgiving, just like Jesus did the little boys lunch.

Then, because I walk and live by faith according to the blessing of Abraham, I believe that God will take your seed sown, and multiply it, according to what the blessing of Abraham promises:

Genesis 22:17 In blessing I will bless you and in multiplying I will multiply your descendants like the stars of the heavens and like the sand on the seashore. And your Seed (Heir) will possess the gate of His enemies

It has been a joy to me, to see the hand of the living God act in the lives of those of you who have supported us this year!

Many have seen tremendous blessing come into your households, and for this we give thanks, and give Jesus all the glory!
