    Untethering From The Religious System

    Scripture: And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. (Hebrews 10:24-25 – ESV) When the Word of God became flesh, and dwelt among humanity, there was a church in existence. They believed strongly in the law and the prophets. They adored Moses for what he had done and accomplished in God on their behalf. They met weekly in the synagogue for worship, prayer and the reading of Scripture. They tithed; they fasted and they demonstrated levels of…

    Shifting Perspective – Renewing the Mind

    Scripture: And be not conformed to this world: but be yetransformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good,and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:2 – KJV) The transformation of our minds through renewal is not a one-time event, and neither is it an automatic process. It is a continual and deliberate attempt to allow ourselves to receive a new revelation. If what you believe now and your interpretation of Scripture today is the same as it was ten years ago, or even three months ago, then you have not allowed yourself to be inducted in the mind renewal process. I am…

    Taking Your Seat With Christ

    Scripture: And raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:6 – ESV) The first book I read about heaven was by Randy Alcorn. It was really good, but nothing compared to what I know about heaven now. I always questioned how the men and women of the Bible were able to have such profound, spiritual experiences, but I understand now that they had access to something that we have access to in an even greater measure today because Jesus came and restored all things. We have talked about Jesus’ prayer in the Book of John, that we be with…

    Virtue of Love

    Scripture: And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. (Colossians 3:14 – NIV) I have found myself a little intolerant of being in certain Christian circles because of the hostility, criticism, dislike, intolerance, judgment, and disdain we have for each other. It’s just too much. Where is the love? Are we even trying to demonstrate love? Do we realize that human beings are connected, no matter how bad we are, and what we demonstrate to others is actually an attack on ourselves? No wonder our lives don’t improve. Love is the central theme of Scripture and the foundation by which most, if…

    Pure Love

    Scripture: Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13 – ESV) There is a debate that has raged for centuries, “What is love?” Some define it as a feeling, a very strong emotion. Others are convinced that love is a choice. I believe all the definitions are right, but it still doesn’t quite capture the essence of what it is, because God is love, so how does one define a person? How does one define God? Love was present from the very beginning of time. We see love making an appearance in the Garden of Eden when Adam sacrificed perfect…

    The Currency Of A Supernatural Life

    Scripture: And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? How is it that ye have no faith? (Mark 4:40 – KJV) The world and our existence seem to be built on the principle of trading. We cannot get anything without it costing us something. And even the things that are purported as ‘free’ can actually cost more than what we intentionally pay for. Faith is the currency of the supernatural. It draws what is in the supernal realm, into the realm of physicality. There is no substitute for faith. The absence of faith allows for the disease of fear to multiply in our lives, as we see in…

    Our Words Create Our World

    Scripture: Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. (Proverbs 18:21 – NKJV) I see it every day as I observe the world and the people around me. We speak freely, creating the very reality we eventually experience, and yet, there is a failure to connect our experiences to what we uttered with our very powerful tongue. King Solomon was not kidding when he said we possessed the power of life and death in our tongue. We have been speaking the reality of our experiences since we learned to speak consciously. The suggestion here is that our experiences, and…

    Becoming Love

    Scripture: Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. (1 John 4:7-8 – ESV) I had a dream. I was approached by a young lady from church to pray for her because she was having a pain below her breast. For some reason, it shifted from commanding her to be healed to holding her baby in my arms. The baby was in need of prayer too and crying for his mother. I began to sing, and the baby quieted down, then I prayed for the baby to…

    Why The Church Is Losing The Battle

    Scripture: For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:6 – NLT) The last few years of my life have been a journey of understanding and coming into the knowledge of ascending in/with Christ. It has to do with our soul/spirit not being confined to the earth, and in the body, but literally walking/moving/functioning in the spiritual realm. There are countless examples of this in Scripture, for example, Paul in 2 Corinthians 12. Truth is, our body can be home in bed, while our spirit/soul can be somewhere else, in another…

    Taking Your Seat of Rest

    Scripture: Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. (Hebrews 4:11 – KJV) I sat in my prayer chair, and I was immediately in the spirit. I saw Jesus, and He gestured towards a chair. I knew He was saying the chair belonged to me, and I should sit, so I sat down in the chair. He came and sat in a similar chair next to mine. I understood what it meant to be seated with Christ, but even more so, I knew I was sitting in my seat of rest. It is from that position we are called…
