The Voice of God


Have you ever felt caught in the whirlwind of life?


Job 38:1 ¶ Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said…


Been in a whirlwind lately?

Storms of life looking to take your life?

Clearly, this season, the United States of America is coming out of one – God has spoken and change has come!


There is a voice, that can be heard that has changed everything!

He is the God who flung the stars into being, Almighty God, and that clear voice will change everything, for when He speaks, storms stop, deliverance comes, for He is a God of love, mercy and power.

It has been said that sometime God calms the storms of life, other times He calms His child.

His voice is what we all need, daily!

Hearing the Voice of God

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, yesterday is gone, today has come, and I need you! Speak to me, show me what to do, and have mercy upon me, as I stand upon your Word, and deliver me, I pray: In your name, Lord Jesus, Amen!!”


Prayer Requests: If you or your family need specific prayer for anything, please send us a prayer request. We as a family will pray for you today, and if you would, please let us know the wonderful ways God answers. This is a great encouragement to us

A More Sure Word of Prophecy

A More Sure Word of Prophecy: the Infallible, Holy, Living and Active Word of God!
2 peter 1:16 ¶ For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
19 ¶ We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
What is Peter saying here? He has been shown from the Lord, that he is going to die soon, and He is leaving an eternal legacy here in the earth, the written eternal infallible Word of God. Listen what He says about it:

We were there, when God the Father revealed Jesus in all His glory, stating that this is Jesus my beloved Son. Yet, what I am about to say to you, is far greater than even this mountaintop experience we had with Moses and Elijah on the mount of transfiguration. We heard our Father’s voice on the mountaintop, audibly, but this is of greater import than even the audible voice of God!
19 ¶ We have also a more sure word of prophecy;

A more sure word? Than even the audible voice of God?


This word is to become the eternally written Word of God, no word of mere man, but the Word of God, where God the Holy Spirit became the ink in living writing instruments, writing His perfect commands through them, just like a writer would pick up a pen and write a book. No man gave these Words, they are the Words of God!

2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

He is saying that these Scriptures are to be made public, of no private interpretation, and are greater than all the incredible experiences they have had in walking with Jesus!
beautifully made
This is no fiction novel friends, this book we call the Bible, is alive, for the author is present every time it is read, it contains the living, active eternal Word of God.
Believe it! Receive it, Speak it, and live it, and demonstrate God’s power to this generation!
pray the Word
Let’s pray:

Father, Speak to me. Confirm Your voice to me through Your Word. Open the eyes of my understanding, In Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen”

Don’t Imitate Others – Follow Jesus

For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
follow Jesus

Two people try to do the exact same thing before God. One has a word from the Lord, and Jesus does miracles for them. The other, did not have a word from the Lord, and they crash and burn, and cause great heartbreak to the Lord, their families, and everyone around them. He will pay for and bless, only what He gives voice to. He will not bless our imitation of others. Truly, it is life or death – accurately hearing Him. John 2:5 – Whatever HE says, do it

obey whatever He says

I usually sign all my books with this verse:

John 10:27 (KJV)

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

When we have fully committed to His Lordship and direction in our lives, He will speak, and great blessing will result.

Let’s Pray:

“Father, I choose to follow Jesus today, and submit to His plan for my life. Lord Jesus, please speak to me what to do today,

What is God speaking to you today?

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.

Psalm 119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple

WOG light

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.

Hear God – Even if you are in trouble!

Revelation brings persecution!

possible not easy

Heb 10: 32  But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;

Mr 4:17  And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended.

2Co 12:7  And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

When you honestly hear God, Satan will oppose you. The very direction, illumination, and revelation you have been seeking God for, when granted, brings Satan on the scene.



If he can’t take the Word from you, he will try and shake it from you, and he does this to stop the work of God in the earth.  You cannot judge what you hear from God by your circumstances, or the voices of other people, but must judge what you hear by the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God.

Jesus said: Joh 16:33  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

faith John 16-33

The apostles knew this, and taught it to the early church, clearly:

Ac 14:22  Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

You will have victory in this life, when you believe God, and walk out what He is telling you, but it is not always a walk of ease. There can be intense hardship, affliction, and persecution for following Jesus, to try to get you off of your heavenly mandate and vision.

1Jo 5:4  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

faith stand

Your belief will see you through, and you will become stronger than your trial, as you obey God.

1Co 15:57  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

If you are in a trial of your faith now, know that you are not alone. All of us that have stepped out in faith have experienced challenges, sometimes very, very severely. Yet, God did not bring the trial, He loves us, and is a good God. He will give you overwhelming, supernatural power and grace to not only go through it, but to explode out the other side in total victory, not just a winner, a conquerer, but more than a conquerer in Him. Keep on walking friend, you are not alone warrior, history making and nation shaking is our duty and responsibility, let’s walk through it in JOY!

33  Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.

Had a group of businessmen that I had led to the Lord buy me a plaque, that read, ‘He is no fool, that gives up what he cannot keep, to gain that which he can never lose!”

It is a statement made by a missionary named Jim Elliot, who was killed for trying to share the gospel with an unreached Indian tribe in South America.

In the eyes of the world, we may look like fools, laughingstocks to people who have no understanding of who we are and what we do. Yet our testimony is making headlines in heaven! What we are doing has eternal weight and consequence!

34  For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.

These Christians loved Paul, their minister, when everyone else wanted him imprisoned or killed. It cost them their stuff, the joyful spoiling of their goods, yet they saw their lives through heavens eyes.

35  Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.

The word Confidence here, is the same word translated in other verses as Boldness. Live boldly for Jesus, and do not back down on what He has told you.

36  For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

37  For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

Who is He? Jesus! King of kings, Lord of Lords, king of glory! When He shows up on the scene, you trial ends, with His power and glory displayed!

faith king

38  Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

What we believe keeps us alive! No matter what the circumstances are screaming, believe, and continue walking forward! You are putting a smile on God’s face as you do, and with all the heartache and evil in the world, that alone should be enough to encourage you. He has been good to us, let’s give Him pleasure!

39  But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

You are going to make it! Jesus is with you, and I am praying for you! You are not alone, but have heaven on it’s feet, the great cloud of witnesses, cheering you on! Don’t let up, shut up, nor put up with compromise! WHATEVER HE SAYS, DO IT!

faith voice

We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
Jesus knows, He sees, He feels, and He understands!
He loves you! Even if you feel you cannot see Him:
faith believe sunrise

Is 63:9  In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.

Heb 4:15  For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Jesus knows! Jesus cares! He knows what you are going through, and these verses declare that He is in it with you! He will never leave you nor forsake you, and has given you Holy Spirit and angels to get you through.

Ro 8:26  Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

When you have come to the end of yourself, pray in the Holy Spirit. He will help you, strengthen you, comfort, encourage, direct, and reveal to you what needs to be done. Jesus loves you, and so do I, you are not alone….

Is 64:1 ¶  Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence,

2  As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence!

3  When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence.

4  For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.

This is the cry of my heart these days. I was in a meeting once, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, at a conference in the revival there, at Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship. Worship had been deep and rich, and there was an incredible presence of God in the air, as the man of God came to the pulpit to preach. Then, it happened: God moved. The minister was knocked to the floor, and like a wave, so were the 5000 people present in the meeting. We laid on the floor, some under chairs, for over an hour, the only sound being the occasional deep sobbing and weeping of God’s people as He ministered. There was a tremendous fear of the Lord in the place. God showed up, not in some Holy Ghost giftings, and goose bumps, but in His power, majesty and glory, and no man could stand to minister, nor speak for that matter.

This is my cry for the church here in the United States, and for America. That God show up, and reveal again His power, majesty, holiness, and glory, to this generation. For this I am pressing in, the hope of the nations, the only hope for this nation….Jesus is Lord!

Yet, even after the manifest presence and glory of God is revealed, we must still walk by faith:

Hebrews 11:6 [Full Chapter]

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Matthew 13:21

yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended

Rev dim light

Seems that in the glory of God, God speaks clearly. When He does, He expects us to believe what He says, to the exclusion of every other voice and circumstance. His passion is to be believed and trusted…this is a way we can put a smile on His face!

When we actually believe that He has not only spoken to us, but that despite the often incredibly contrary circumstances, He, Almighty Creator of Heaven and Earth is both willing and able to bring to pass exactly what He said He would….

This, and distractions are the main reasons the works of Jesus do not fully happen in the earth…

He is developing us, for eternal rank and privilege, and this life becomes a training ground for this process, as we learn to live and walk by faith!

Romans 8:29 (King James)

29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

He loves us! Holy Spirit will both bring to our remembrance things He has already told us to do, and will show us things to come…

Yet, His name is ‘I AM’, the one who will never leave nor forsake us, and NOW, faith is.

He has opened doors for you and I:

John 10:3

To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out

13 A temptation has not seized you except what is common-to-humanity. And God is faithful, Who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but also with the temptation will make the way-out, that you may be able to endure


Even now, as we seek Him in His Word, He speaks, He leads, He reveals, and He guides…


Acts 22:14

And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth




Hebrews 3:7

Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,


Hebrews 4:7

again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.



Revelation 21:3

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.


We are called to bring Heaven to earth, by His Word and our obedience to His Spirit.


There are always people on the other side of our obedience, people who are good works for us, prepared from before the foundation of the world, for His glory.


Yesterdays tragedies, failures, or victories are but memories and instruction points: we learn from them, but today is the day of salvation, and NOW faith is what is required.


Today is a great day to obey God, a great day for your miracle, a great day to work miracles in the lives of those He has called you to serve!


Let’s Pray:


‘Father, Today, I would obey You! Today, I release my faith in You for direction, breakthroughs, wisdom, the hearing afresh and anew, Your voice. I expect You to use me and flow through me today to promote Your kingdom and Your glory, for I come before Your throne, knowing I am loved, heard, and answered, for I have come in Your mighty and matchless name Lord Jesus, Amen!’

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 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!

The Word of God shall talk with thee!

The Word of God shall talk with thee!

Proverbs 6:22  When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.

WOG when you go

Heb 4:12  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

WOG living and active

The wonderful thing about the Word of God is that it is alive! The reason it is alive, is because the Holy Spirit is the one who breathed upon pen (inspired) them, to write exactly what He said. Since God is omniscient, and omnipresent, He is literally here, every time we open the book. Time, to Him is simply like a parade. He can see the beginning from the end from His throne in eternity, and can enter the parade whenever, or wherever He pleases. When He shows up, He is always, ‘I Am’, our ever present help in time of need. One writer stated that the Bible is the only book ever written, where the author is always present when we read it.

WOG alive

I have noticed this over the years, that as I faithfully share the Word of God that is alive and active to me each day, Holy Spirit makes it alive and active to others too, and suddenly, I realize again, that I am simply an instrument in the hand of our ever living God, and He takes my simple offering of preaching, teaching, blogging, or publishing the Word of God on every available voice to me, and this very Word is a living organism! It comes in seed form, but when I plant it into the earth in this generation, by faith, and water it with my prayer:

WOG speak

Acts 19:20

Thus the Word of the Lord [concerning the attainment through Christ of eternal salvation in the kingdom of God] grew and spread and intensified, prevailing mightily

Acts 19:20 (DARBY)

20 Thus with might the word of the Lord increased and prevailed

Do you see it! The Word of God is alive! It has a life of it’s own! It grows, and with might shows forth the glory of God, wherever it lands!

Psalm 119:130

The entrance and unfolding of Your words give light; their unfolding gives understanding (discernment and comprehension) to the simple.

Wherever His Word enters, the light and life of God comes, in power!

WOG light

I cannot count the times this very word has gone into nations I have not yet been to, and Holy Spirit has used my devotionals to heal, deliver, touch, and bless people it would be unlikely I could ever meet naturally.

Things can look fine according to outward appearances, but He looks much deeper within, into not only what we are doing, but rather why. When our why’s don’t agree with His why’s, He can gently instruct, correct, counsel, and refine us, so that we become more like Him in our thinking, and very motives!

2 Peter 1

Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, according as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 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.

WOG promise

Every day, I take time to meditate upon the Word of God. There are different ways I do this, but my favorite, by far, is to simply lay down with the audio Bible playing, simply asking Holy Spirit to speak to me, each time. Faithfully, for years, He has, and does!

Let the Word of God talk with thee today!

WOG speak bw

Each day, I encourage people to seek Jesus first thing each morning, and to read through their Bible in some sort of yearly Bible reading plan. Each night, we have been playing the audio Bible in our house for over 20 years, falling asleep with the prayer: “Jesus, tell me a bedtime story”. And He has continually opened His Word to our understanding, making His promises alive to us as He directs us day by day.
Let’s Pray:

‘Father, I am ever looking towards heaven and your will for my life. Speak to me, the specifics that You have for me, today. Not only what I need to be doing, but my reasons for doing it, in Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’


If you need prayer for anything specific, please send us a note on the prayer request form, and we will pray for you. Then, after God answers, I ask that you take a second and send us an update, so we can be encouraged, and the devil can again be defeated by Jesus blood, and your testimony!

Seven Ways to Hear the Voice of God – Part One

As I prayed about what the Lord would have me share with you today, I felt that I am to teach on hearing Him. No matter how complex our lives become, it is still all about relationship with Jesus.

For the next seven days, I am going to share one of the seven ways God has shown me He speaks:

Seven That Ways God Speaks to You:

hear bible

1. His Word:

God speaks through His Word!
Ps 138:2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy

Jesus responded to the devil in Matt 4, by saying: “It is written!”.

pray the Word
God is Holy and cannot lie, if Jesus quoted the Word of God, so must we, for God places greater emphasis on His written and spoken Word, than even  upon His name!

Nu 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

no lie

God cannot lie. If He has promised something in His Word, He must honor it, for He cannot lie.

Ps 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

Lu 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

Joh 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

The Scriptures will always lead us to Jesus, never away from Him.

I remember one morning reading my Bible, and the verse: Matthew 4:4 (AMP)
4 But He replied, It has been written, Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.

WOG alive
These words jumped leaped off the page as I read them, and I saw it clearly. Simply reading the Bible is not enough. It is when Holy Spirit speaks to us, that word, the one that proceedeth forth from the mouth of God, that will cause us to live! There is life, direction, deliverance and power, in the living Word from the lips of Jesus, spoken to our hearts…

Here is another article I wrote, of how God speaks to us through His Word:

Let’s Pray:
“Father, reveal Jesus through Your Word to me. Open it to my understanding, Amen”


The Friendly Counsel of God – We have friends in High Places!

Jesus over earth


The Friendly Counsel of God!

You know, in business you meet some really great people sometimes, people of honor, integrity, excellence, and great wisdom from life experience. Along the way, I made decisions to try and include these folks in my life as mentors, respecting their time, yet enjoying the privilege of being able to simply pick up the cell phone and call them for counsel, when I had a decision to make. We are friends, and because they care about me, and want me to succeed, they give me friendly, wise counsel, so I can prosper.

Well, there is One, wiser, richer, more seasoned and powerful than all of them combined, that is God, Creator of Heaven and earth, seated upon the throne, with Jesus at His right hand. Truly, if we know Jesus, we have influential friends in high places, and we are called to walk with them, seated with Christ in heavenly places, as royalty in the courts of our heavenly King!

Today, as I read Job 29:4

‘Just as I was in the days of my youth, when ‘THE FRIENDLY COUNSEL OF GOD WAS OVER MY TENT.’

I am grateful for my wealthy friends, but they are never the source of my wealth. Nope, I endeavour to live a life of holiness and obedience that ever places a smile on the face of Jesus. Living in such a way, that He might see comfort and reward for His great sufferings, doing what I can to encourage Him, as He too sees the horror, tragedy, and mess of this pain wracked earth.

He knows, He loves, He weeps, then He acts, sometimes with brutal intensity in His government, to stop evil, punish predatory people, and to protect and bless His family in the earth.

If I take the time to get to know Him, He gives me wonderful, friendly counsel…

He did it again tonight, at a moment when my emotions threatened to cause me to make some brutal decisions, decisions that would have been wrong for my life. He came, He spoke, He brought comfort, He again revealed His glory, and showed me that I was placing a smile upon His face.

I don’t know what you are going through today, but if you love Jesus, He will go through it with you, and will never leave you in the fight, and if you ask Him, He will always make a way, even where there appears to be no way.

Is it not written?

1 Corinthians 10:13Amplified Bible (AMP)

13 No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy].

Listen, as He speaks to your heart today

John 10:27(NIV)

27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

I am totally committed to fully obeying Him alone, no matter what people do, or don’t do to me or for me.


Let’s pray:

‘Father, I come into Your courts today, with thanksgiving, praise, and worship determined to honor You and who You are to me. Thank you for the privilege of Your counsel, comfort, wealth, provision, and direction today. May I live today, to put a smile on Your face Lord Jesus. Amen’

He is preparing your place…

Joh 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
Joh 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.


De 31:8 And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.

Isa 45:2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:

Lu 1:17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

Eph 4: 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

So, you have a call to kingdom leadership, and it burns, like a fire shut up in your bones! like a fire

You know you have an offering to contribute, a gift to bring, but it seems every door is closed at present.

Your frustration mounts, as the days turn into months, into years, as you faithfully stay before the Lord, in prayer, worship, and diligent study of His Word.

Yet, know this. The kingdom of God is no longer a new entity in the earth. The church has been here for 2000 years! Your gift, in order to effectively operate, must work alongside, and in conjunction with many other gifts in the Body of Christ, and in order for you to step into your place, others, perhaps elder than you, need to recognize, test, and respond to your gift.

At present, they may not even like you, for your particular gift is designed to impact this generation, not theirs, and your fire, passion and zeal, may be uncomfortable to them, as God has lead you far outside their mental box.

Lu 1:17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

You gift must operate cross generationally, and there are at least four generations of believers surrounding you now, and somehow, you must build generational bridges, and create pathways for people to flow supernaturally, gracefully through each season of their life and calling.


Is 58: 10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:

There are particular needs, pains, and ministry needs in each season of life. It will take much wisdom from God, to seek to meet these.

There is nothing new under the sun. You are not the first, nor the last to experience this frustration. If you like, you can throw off the fetters of the established order, and explode into the earth, as the new entity God has called you to be. Many have done this, and sometimes it is the passion of the Holy Spirit for the harvest that authentically compels them.
sword forged

Others, like me, are learning to temper their fire with wisdom. In the making of a true Samurai sword, the layers of leavened steel are heated up at least seven times, and quenched in various processes, to instill the right temper and spring into the steel. US soldiers discovered that these swords could literally slice through their gun barrels in WW2!

Isa 41:2 Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow.
Isa 49:2 And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me;

True leaders, entering an existing organization, recognize they must become a lover and historian of the people, places, and things that God has built in previous years, even if they clearly see exactly what must happen to experience the explosive kingdom growth, that will occur when they are given a platform to lead!


Understand the heart of Jesus! He is still a great, gentle shepherd, and He is dealing with seasoned hearts in tenderness and wisdom, to prepare them for you, even as He has spent years in your development.

Perhaps, you are honestly ready to step into your office, call, and appointment, but they are not. Let love prevail!

King David, a man after God’s own heart, refused to touch God’s anointed, even though his daily circumstances were brutal!

Let’s just say, my past couple of years have been no picnic either….

David was clearly anointed by God, the prophet Samuel himself came to his house, to pour oil upon his head, and set him apart as king of Israel.

1Sa 16:13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.

By the anointing, he slew the lion, the bear, and Goliath!

Yet, he was not king, YET!

not king

1 Sam 18:10 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the evil spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with his hand, as at other times: and there was a javelin in Saul’s hand.
11 And Saul cast the javelin; for he said, I will smite David even to the wall with it. And David avoided out of his presence twice.
12 ¶ And Saul was afraid of David, because the LORD was with him, and was departed from Saul.

He was anointed by God, but not yet appointed king. He had to dodge spears, all the way from Saul’s throne, through the deserts and rocks, for years, but He fully trusting in God, and His timing, and though there were several times God delivered Saul into David’s hands, David refused to hurt him!

Notice the exclamation point folks, because I have urgently wanted to blast godly authority sometimes, when they are clearly wrong, but I WILL NOT TOUCH GODS ANOINTED, NOR WILL I SOW DISCORD AMONG THE BRETHREN!

1Sa 24:6 And he said unto his men, The LORD forbid that I should do this thing unto my master, the LORD’S anointed, to stretch forth mine hand against him, seeing he is the anointed of the LORD.


God hates

Pr 6:19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Eventually, David was appointed king…

Notice there were many years between the anointing of God, and the Appointing of God!

2Sa 2:4 And the men of Judah came, and there they anointed David king over the house of Judah. And they told David, saying, That the men of Jabeshgilead were they that buried Saul.

I could study it out, but I’m not sure how long David ran from Saul, in battle, hiding amongst his enemies, yet refusing to take matters into His own hands…

I asked Holy Spirit why David had to stay in the wilderness, and I felt Him say: ‘David had to learn to accurately hear my voice in life and death circumstances, before he was fully qualified to lead my people’

Isa 42:8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another,

Yes, the gifts and callings of God are without repentence, but many are called and few are chosen, therefore there is difference between the CALL of God and the COMMISSION of God.

As you cry out to God, as I do daily, one of two things will happen. Either those around you, currently in positions of authority, will eventually respond to the direction and wooing of the Holy Spirit, or He will move them out of your way.  As for me, I fear God, and we reap what we sow. I am walking in love towards all men, even my persecutors and op-posers.


He will move you out of the way! Currently, I find myself, like David, Paul and other Biblical characters, completely removed from my church home, as I radically obey Holy Spirit into some wilderness areas. His voice is clear here, and there is great intimacy in the desert, with Him!

Why? I would rather have the grace, and resulting power with God that comes to the humble, than that which the strength of my own arm, or even the violence that my own faith can produce. Obedience and intimacy with Him are my first priority, and I will pay any price to fully obey Him, without compromise.

There is a set time, and I will walk in it, even if, like my First Nations brothers, I create my own personal ‘trail of tears’ towards my destiny.

Ps 75:6 ¶ For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Gotta be like Jesus:

Heb 5:7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;

Sure, it is hard. Brutal at times, but remember, He makes everything beautiful in His time.

beautiful time
Let’s Pray:
‘Father, what I do affects eternity, and generations to come, should Jesus tarry. You lead with gentleness, those with young, how much more, organizations, and kingdom constructs you have raised up to minister to them. Give me patience, grace, strength to endure, as my fire and passion, find release in praise, prayer, and violent faith released in the earth, in your precious name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’
