#391 – Much in and Much out

MY place of blessing has an immense cost. The large cost is commensurate to the large blessing, a blessing is an asset and has a value unto itself. There will be competition for anything of value and for any asset.

The cost may be money, it may be time, it may be reputation, it may be pain or the cost may be blood. The blessings are yours and are set before you, pressed down, shaken together and running over. Are you willing to pay the cost?

Will you march around Jericho seven times, like Joshua? Will you go into the Lion’s Den, like Daniel? Will you dip your body 7 times in the river Jordan, like Naaman? Can you be beaten with rods, shipwrecked and take 39 lashes, like Paul?

To walk in an eternal blessing will require a natural cost. To be widely known for your faith, will require a great act of your faith. To whom I have given and trusted with much, I also hold in high regard and require much. I demand much, much in and much out.

2 Kings 5:14-15
So Naaman went down to the Jordan River and dipped himself seven times, as the man of God had instructed him. And his skin became as healthy as the skin of a young child, and he was healed! Then Naaman and his entire party went back to find the man of God. They stood before him, and Naaman said, “Now I know that there is no God in all the world except in Israel. So please accept a gift from your servant.”

#384 – A Yielded Vessel

The raising of your hands to Heaven is a normal and appropriate response to the sensing of my PRESENCE. Hands raised to the heavens is a sign and an acknowledgment of the coming pouring out of MY Spirit.

It is also, a sign of surrender, it signifies that you have exhausted all your human resources and are now in complete submission. A yielded vessel is a powerful one. When you hand the reigns of your life to ME, the best of ME and the best in you collide.

Whether it be the ultimate praise or submission to the ultimate God, you will benefit. This is the seed of your breakthrough, at the end of what is your best, welcomes MY best. In your utmost weakness, you will experience MY utmost strength.

Raise your hands and allow ME to fix it, to be the solution. While, your solutions are temporary, MY solutions are eternal. Relieve yourself now, hand your worries to ME, that I may be GOD in your secret places and the unknown regions of your heart.

Lamentations 3:40-41
Let us examine our lifestyles, putting them to the test, and turn back to the LORD. Let us lift up our hearts and our hands to God in heaven.

#383 – Love Leads to Life

To listen is to love. To reserve judgment is to exemplify the person of Christ. Out of the concern in the heart, every mouth speaks. If you could take an unselfish moment to listen, then your answer will unfold.

The transformative knowledge of Christ is more than a head knowledge, that can be transmitted and received. It is also a heart knowledge, that gestates and incubates a living, breathing faith.

MY Word is sperm and your heart is the egg. As a seed fertilizes an egg, life is spontaneous and morphs the existence of both sperm & egg. The birth of a new hope, a new possibility and a fresh start is now a real and a tangible thing.

A listening ear leads to concern, that concern is a demonstration of love. A love that is first felt and then received. Love received within a heart fertilizes, a fertilized heart is rejuvenated and produces life. Listening leads to Love, Love leads to Life.

Mark 4:24
And he said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you. For to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.”

#381 – Your Honor is Coming

There is a coach that was acknowledged with the highest honor, his name was enshrined among the best of the best. The honor had a special meaning. The league bestowed upon the coach a recognition, delayed by his specific team and several years after many of his players experienced the same honor.

The coach was denied by his inner circle, but was accepted by the circle of circles. He was denied by a subsystem, but accepted system wide. He was denied by his city, but was accepted by the world. He was denied by those closest to him, but accepted by those observing from afar.

Despite the defeat, the denial, the disrespect and the delay the coach finally received his high honor. Your high honor is coming, delayed but is coming. You have been disregarded, but your high honor is coming. You were overlooked, with defeat in your eyes, but your honor is coming.

I am reminded of King Solomon, all of his wisdom, knowledge, wealth, notoriety and the very throne he succeeded was because of King David. King Soloman was King David’s son and his high honor, King Soloman walked in the full favor of God, because of King David.

1 Kings 3:6
Solomon replied, “You have shown much loving devotion to Your servant, my father David, because he walked before You in faithfulness, righteousness, and uprightness of heart. And You have maintained this loving devotion by giving him a son to sit on his throne this very day.

#375 – A Peacemaking Spirit

When you have come to a point, where there is no right or wrong, nor good or evil and the only thing you are concerned with is MY presence, this is when you can clearly hear MY instructions. There is a wind coming, blowing into the threshing floor to separate the chaff from the wheat.

The winds are blowing for you, if your heart be wheat, but if your heart be chaff, this Mighty Wind, My Mighty Wind is blowing against you. This is a foreboding and a warning for those who claim MY Name, but whose hearts are far from ME.

This is your warning, to make your paths straight, to be who I have called, not this world’s calling, but who I have called you to be. I have placed a Peacemaking Spirit in you, I am commanding you to make peace. This is not an option, an opinion or a debatable decision.

Your ability to obey in this moment will cause a shift in the trajectory of the spread of darkness. I have made you for such a time as this. This is your purpose, this is your great call and this is why you have been given an arsenal of gifts.

James 3:18
And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.

2 Cor. 20:20
Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.

#370 – MY hand is stayed against Thee

Nothing is greater than, The Great I AM. MY hand is stayed against thee. What you need, I will and already have provided. This and any other sickness is not unto death. I hold the key to sickness and death.

Death in this life is not to be feared. Absence from this world is presence with ME, in the next. Be wise as serpents, yet harmless as doves. Watch what I AM doing. You have been distanced from the many, to become more intimate with the few.

Asking ME why is the wrong question, Ask ME: the How, the Where, the What and the When. How will this advance the Kingdom, Where can I help and intercede, What is MY new assignment Father, When should we pray and When should we fight.

The power of Life and Death is in MY hands. Death is not a challenge for ME, death is MY minion. Death is MY mercenary and a slave to MY every command. Release the worries, fear the ONE, that holds death in its place.

2 Chronicles 7:13-15
At times I might shut up the heavens so that no rain falls, or command grasshoppers to devour your crops, or send plagues among you. Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.

#369 – Born for this Moment

Today is the first day of a new chapter. What was, has expired and the new is all that remains. Only the new version of you remains. You were born for this moment and the time has come for you to reap the fruit of your labor, for you to taste and see, in your promised land.

The road has been difficult and arduous, but you made it. You are winning, because you have refused defeat and will continue to win, if you do not quit. You are a gladiator in your craft and well suited for the task at hand.

As you put on the armor of mastery, the sword of your gift and guard the loins of your call, nothing can stop you, because you are now operating in destiny. You are living in the predestined present, promised by ME, for you. This future belongs to you.

Heaven has proclaimed and it will be so. The intercessory prayers of the righteous are with you and are ever present to guide you. The book has been written and in Christ you have been established. This moment has been ordained for you.

Psalm 139:15-16
My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in secret, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all my days were written in Your book and ordained for me before one of them came to be.

#348 – Giants in your Generation

Until you slay your giant, you cannot be king. The king of the hopes, dreams and desires, I have embedded in your heart. The opposition facing your purpose, your calling and your gifts are your giants. Until you defeat the giant of pride, the giant of lust and the giant of greed your reign is on hold and will be delayed.

What I have placed in your hand is specifically designed to address the giants in your generation. Use your strength and energy, to challenge the status quo of both Christ followers and the culture. Find a balance between conforming to this world and becoming too heavenly minded.

The current spirit of religion has placed results over relationships, many have and many more will fall by the wayside, because you the bearers of MY word and MY truth are afraid to face the giants head on. Remember who has empowered you, the weapons of your warfare are not carnal.

It is sacrifice, that will be your secret weapon against the evil one. Live a life of holy offerings to ME, walking up right and beyond reproach. This reputation of righteousness will go before you and roar like a pride of lions, against the adversary.

2 Corinthians 10:3-6
We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.

#341 – I AM Fortifying

Your dream is not on hold, you are just in a specific season of getting more context. Pay close attention to everything you are about to see and hear. I AM fortifying and enriching the dream. The scope is being broadened and the focus made more precise.

I AM expanding your territory and revealing it now, under duress, so that none can take credit for the revelations, including the innovations of your own mind. You have known in part and prophesied in part.

Now I am shifting things and revealing more of the predestined purposes for your life. You may feel manic, at times and that you have little, to no control. This is by design and needed for this season of growth. It is all about growing and growth.

You have held the fullness of who I AM at bay. I AM bigger and much larger than you have fathomed. Much you are aspiring to do, in your own power, requires the super natural. It is time that you relinquish control and untie MY hands. I AM going to bless you exceedingly and abundantly beyond anything you can ask or think.

1 Corinthians 13:9-12
Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless. When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.

#327 – The Desert is Finished

The manna is over. What the generations before you could not receive is now your rightful inheritance. The miracles of deliverance and sustenance in the desert, were to build you up for this moment. You will receive a city, that you did not build and harvest you did not sow.

Wealth, wisdom and warriors to help are coming from the North, the South, the West and the East. I am coming from the east, a wind of reclamation, to bestow what is and has always been yours.

This is more than a new covenant with you, it is also MY command. All that was made, must relent, acknowledge and obey. The giants before you, do not matter, only your relationship with the giant destroyer.

The manna was milk, designed to get you here, the Promised Land. The next level of promise, requires nourishment that only the promised land can supply. What was done in the desert is finished and is no more. Canaan is now your home.

Exodus 6:33-35
Moses said to Aaron, “Get a jar and fill it with two quarts of manna. Then put it in a sacred place before the LORD to preserve it for all future generations. Aaron did just as the LORD had commanded Moses. He eventually placed it in the Ark of the Covenant—in front of the stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant. So the people of Israel ate manna for forty years until they arrived at the land where they would settle. They ate manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan.

#326 – Every part of you is Holy

I know everything about you and nothing can surprise ME. I know all that you think and all that you will say. MY hand is on you and the knowledge you possess is MY divine gift. This is your light.

I AM everywhere and through ME everything was made. If you plunge to the bottom of the ocean or explore the most distant celestial star, I AM there holding you, holding the oceans and holding the galaxies in place.

I made you remarkably, both fearfully and wonderfully, I have made you. A marvelous masterpiece of flesh on bone. You are MY sacred workmanship made in MY secret place, MY anointed work.

I formed you from the inside out, every part of you is Holy. Your Mother’s womb was MY canvas and the world is MY showcase. Every part of you I have loved, even in the darkness of sin, as in the light.

Psalms 139:12
Even the darkness is not dark to You, but the night shines like the day, for darkness is as light to You.

#325 – Authentic Authority

You are the light, that I AM sending into the world. If they do not see you, they may never see ME. What you say and do are crucial to the kingdom. Your yes must be yes and your no must to be no.

Your character must stand out from all others, because you are representing ME. Your words are MY words and your hands are MY hands. The help my people need is in hope, their healing will come from a renewed belief and renewed expectations.

This is your mission to inject MY eternal hope into every person and into every place, I send you. Like an archer with precise aim, disperse your arrows of hope into the atmosphere. Refill your quiver as fast and as frequently, as you can.

The world needs an authentic authority and humbled hearts full of love. The more intimate you are with ME, the more power, I can entrust with you. The adversary does not recognize titles or the accolades of men. He only acknowledges and submits to power from on high.

Matthew 5:14-16
You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead, they set it on a lampstand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

#311 – I AM the one that Blesses

Every opportunity that comes your way and looks good, may not be a blessing or the best option for you. There are many good things, that can lead to compromised outcomes.

Consider each aspect of your business and personal relationships. Has the season changed? What I use to bless you in one season, can be the blockage to your next season. The thing is not good nor bad, but how you relate to it.

The promised land to Israel was a blessing, but I AM the one that blesses. Whatever you have or do that becomes more important than ME is an idol and possessing that gift, has now become idol worship.

I AM a jealous God and I will have no other Gods before ME. Israel fell into bondage because of this, they wanted what the gentiles had. They failed to remember the One True and Living God. Look to Israel and learn.

Exodus 20:5
You must not bow down to them or worship them, for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God who will not tolerate your affection for any other gods. I lay the sins of the parents upon their children; the entire family is affected—even children in the third and fourth generations of those who reject me.

#308 – Grace & Provision

Not long ago, I was sick to the point of incapacity, abdominal pains had become so intense that, I drove myself to the emergency room. I was there for several hours, receiving a battery of tests and eventually referred to a gastrointestinal specialist. In the interim, I completely lost my appetite and subsequently 30 pounds. I spent 18 hours a day in the bed.

I eventually had an endoscopy and a colonoscopy, the endoscopy was clear, but the colonoscopy found ulcers and inflammation in my intestines. The ulcers were so pronounced that the colonoscopy could not be fully done. The recommendation was rest, fluids and antibiotics.

I eventually followed up with the doctor and did another colonoscopy, this time the inflammation was gone and the ulcers were also reduced to nothing. A biopsy determined there was no cancer, Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.

I remember a peculiar question that the doctor asked me, ‘what do you think could be causing the ulcers’. I found this to be odd, because the doctor was the specialist and the expert. I was hoping the doctor could tell me.

What, I did not fully understand then and I have a clearer picture of now is this: I was the only one who could answer the question. The Doctor was not asking about my lifestyle, per se, but about my life. In other words, what are you stressing over and worrying about that is affecting your health?

Eventually, I realized it was my business, that was causing my stress. I was trying to hang onto something, that the season for, had ended. The business in particular was not the issue.

The issue was in the affirmation, sense of worth and the identity, I received from being a successful entrepreneur. I made the mistake of connecting my value, worth and status to an external achievement. This flawed logic was adversely affecting my health in a major way.

I clearly remember having a sense and unction from God, that 10 years in that business was the assignment and it was time to transition into my next season. Here is the epiphany, my ulcers were due to my disobedience.

The grace and provision had moved to the next season of my life, I was operating under my own authority and no longer under God’s authority. The cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night was moving and I remained in the old place.

I lost sight of what I valued, I value God’s presence. I made the business, my reputation and status more important than obedience. Those things had become idols, I manufactured my very own idol.

Matthew 6:31-34
Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans strive after all these things, and your Heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.

#302 – (Part 3) The Whirlwind

In the vision, as I was in the whirlwind, I had an overwhelming peace. A supernatural sense that all I was seeing, would be aligned to me. Any effort to enhance would have been futile, God was in complete control.

He was showing me that my best efforts are finite, in the presence of the infinite one. He was inside the whirlwind, outside the whirlwind and all through me, at the same time.

God did not have to speak or move for the whirlwind to respond to him. It moved at his thoughts. Whatever God thought, the whirlwind obeyed.

The peace was all encompassing, every worry, concern, offense, desire, fear, failure, mistake, short coming, flaw, issue, problem, pain or past failure was gone in the whirlwind.

I have personally missed God many times, but not in this moment. I was completely certain, that the slow motion view of the whirlwind was God assuring me, that this moment would be different.

This time my heart was pure and my heart could now handle, what had always been mine, the relationships, the connections and the strategic positions of favor to best affect the kingdom.

The prophecy: I AM always in the wind and the wind is in ME. Whether it is warm or cold, dry or moist, gentle or gale forced. The wind causes the rain and the drought, it can scatter seed or uproot mature trees.

The wind can bring quail for food, destroy a persistent adversary or bring judgment to those that deny the wind. It brings to the mocker and the haughty, pestilence and plagues. To the righteous one, the wind, MY wind and MY presence brings peace and arranged favor.

The whirlwind is what blows situations into your life, that you are not qualified for and you remotely deserve to have, yet suddenly become yours.

Ezekiel 1:4-5
I looked and saw a whirlwind coming from the north, a great cloud with fire flashing back and forth and brilliant light all around it. In the center of the fire was a gleam like amber.

#301 – Deeper Overwhelming Intimacy

What are you rehearsing? There are thoughts in your mind that are keeping you stuck: stuck in the past, stuck in pain and stuck in a defeating process. The fear has taken up residence in an intimate place, a place made for faith and not fear.

What are you hiding? There are a set of hidden sins, that you have tried to keep from ME. I see it, but I will heal and redeem only with your permission. It resides deep in your heart, a place I wish to occupy.

The things you are rehearsing and hiding is hindering. It is causing a delay from the inside, doubt attached to an embryo. It is the substance of things that makes you question your value and worth, it is a lie.

The answer is in MY Love. More than hearing or seeing the evidence of MY love, but in giving yourself the permission to possess MY Love. There is great compassion, a deeper overwhelming intimacy with ME, that can be had.

Ephesians 3:16-19
I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God

#295 – Good, Good and Good

A Good name is better than money. It is a reputation of trust and an honest man can be found on any level. It is best to be poor and honest, then to be rich and full of lies. When you operate with integrity, doing business above board, you are transacting in the heavens and making ME proud.

Good news is the salve to a weary heart. It is like washing the dirt of the day from one’s feet. It can change the atmosphere by lifting hearts, minds and spirits. Good news brings life, but gossiping lips, take life away.

Good work is a mark of a master craftsmen. The mastering of one’s craft is perfection and can be a means to sharing ME, the perfect one. Let your work distinguish you in the marketplace and let your work ethic be a witness of your God.

Good friends are real treasures, they come to lighten the load of living. You are enhanced by those invited into your world. Life is to be lived in community, through covenants relationships and working together.

Matthew 12:35
The good man brings good things out of his good store of treasure, and the evil man brings evil things out of his evil store of treasure.

#227 – MY Thoughts are Higher

There as many opinions, points of views and perspectives that the world will offer and even demand that you accept. It is time to question some things, How does that opinion align with eternity?

The kingdoms of this world are moved by the notions of men that have not been washed with the blood, are enslaved by sin and serve the prince of the air. The prevailing ideas of the day are determined by the best argument.

A Spirit of self deception has been empowered to choose what is and is not truth. MY will and MY word are not debatable. I AM Sovereign and Eternal, MY thoughts are higher than your thoughts.

This is a clarion call, choose today, MY plan or man’s plan, MY word or man’s word, MY opinion of you or man’s opinion of you and specifically, MY will for your life or man’s will for your life.

2 Corinthians ‭10:5
We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ.
‭‭

#213 – Stand Alone

Stand alone in your purity. You are a chosen vessel of the Great I Am, it is all the authenticity, authority and affirmation you need. What is already contained inside you is greater than what stands against you.

Stand alone in your salvation. You did not choose the Lord, it was I that chose you first. What I make is perfect and is perpetually being perfected. ALL else is a cheap carbon copy, an unauthorized replica.

Stand alone in your convictions. Christ’s death is your life. The new you has eclipsed the old you and your proof of HIS Glory is exemplified in your converted heart and mind. Refuse to relapse into the old you.

Stand alone in your calling. He who is called is also equipped. You are now amongst a peculiar people. You do not answer too any man, but there is an answer in you for every man.

Deuteronomy‬ ‭7:6‬
Because thou art a holy people to the Lord thy God. The Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be his peculiar people of all peoples that are upon the earth.

#198 – No Longer Slaves

A wise man learns something from all that impacts him and a fool is easily offended. To gain a self sustained confidence, will mean a shifting from faith in men, to faith in ME.

Opinions, opinions, and more opinions. Have you noticed that men will give advice from a place in their hearts, from which, they are not competent? The words they speak are for their own ears.

Opinions blow in the wind, they are fleeting and have no substance, some from the east and others push in from the west. The opinions of your environment have become the yokes of bondage.

You are no longer slaves, you instead are joint heirs, making you 100% MY Sons. You can move, walk and make decisions in supreme confidence, that the Mercy Seat is on your side and I AM standing with you.

Lev. 26:13
I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt so you would no longer be their slaves. I broke the yoke of slavery from your neck so you can walk with your heads held high.‬ ‭‬

#189 – A Greater Yes

Be consistent continuing to swing hard and with all your effort. Use all your might to hit the target. The Dream is yours to birth and the path will not be clear to others, this is by design.

Clarity of vision is for the visionary and what you see only needs to make sense, to you. Remain fully persuaded of what I have said: each covenant, conviction and command.

Every ounce of what you have experienced and have come to know are relevant to the purpose, the calling and the assignment for this season. All things are working together for your good.

The Yes’s and the No’s of man, do not matter. You have a greater yes from ME and MY yes will never change. It is a YES ensured by MY very Spirit. It was yes in your mother’s womb and it is still a yes, today.

This means that Heaven and Earth will cease to exist before, MY promises concerning you, return to ME void. As sure as, MY Breath and Spirit entered Adam, the Great I AM is within you.

Matthew 24:34-35
Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.

#174 – Reconciliation is Coming

The traditions of men are at odds with truth. I AM Truth. The church is divided by color, creed and the opinions of the men. Mammon has replace ME in the hearts of those who claim to know ME, but this is the great lie.

An enemy has done this. The church is broken and fragmented into black, white and brown versions. The fragmentation is based on fear. These divisions are not from on high, but are schemes from the lowest pits of hell.

MY church, MY Holy Church is beyond color, is beyond governmental powers, is beyond social conformities and not reserved for the rich. MY Church is a pure and a holy people, that have the interests of MY heart, as its own.

Reconciliation is coming and it will happen through praise. The solution is in the surrender, the answer is in MY presence and the truth is in MY Spirit. Repent and return to ME, Isreal. I have a new ring, a new robe and a fattened calf awaiting.

Acts 17:26
“And He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth.”

Luke 15:22-24
“But his father said to the servants, ‘Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on him. Get a ring for his finger and sandals for his feet. And kill the calf we have been fattening. We must celebrate with a feast, for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.’ So the party began.

#173 – I Isolated You

I AM the peaceful one, I hold the keys to freedom, calm, value and accomplishment. Align with ME and I will give you an unquenchable rest. One that does not rise and fall like the tides, but holds fast in every season.

I can make you carefree and give you an unspeakable resolute joy. Not a happiness that comes and then goes, but a resident sense of warmth and light. This is a joy that emanates from a place within your soul, because you are Mine.

The pain is not eternal, the next season will be better. The isolation hurts, yet the chasm is also an insulation, from distractions and from contamination. As you are purified and become contamination free, the process frees you from opinions.

A person free from the opinions of this world is eligible for consecration. The consecration is a spiritual edification, that designates you as sacred and holy. I isolated you, to insulate you, to ultimately consecrate you. Be Mine alone, be ye Holy.

I Peter 1:13-17
So prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. Put all your hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world. So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.” And remember that the heavenly Father to whom you pray has no favorites. He will judge or reward you according to what you do. So you must live in reverent fear of him during your time here as “temporary residents.”

#151 – Release your Sound

Release your sound and the enemy will flee, release your sound and the captive will be made free. Release your sound and the walls will come down, release your sound and the battle is won. Release your sound and the heavens will conspire, release your sound and the dead will live again. Release your sound […]

#148 – Pass the Baton (Part 2)

There is a baton passed from season to season, a baton passed from generation to generation and a baton passed from the spirit realms to the earthly realms. Before it was Moses’s staff, then Israel’s Ark and now the Cross of Christ. In life’s race there will be straightaways, uphills, downhills and curves. The straightaways […]

#140 – Times of Testing

In the moments of turmoil are where you will find the most sincere peace. Discovering faith in the chaos makes it all worthwhile and these times of testing, ensure a knowing of what a faith is made. Growth is when you can see the victory and vanquishment in the same light, being aware that both […]

#35 – You are MY Prize

I AM a constant eternal force. I control space, time and life. Physics, mathematics and all the sciences are the study of MY anatomy and what I have formed. All that I establish is self sustaining. All that I create prospers.

I AM steadfast, never failing and cannot lie. I AM the uncreated one, all that is seen and unseen was made by ME. I AM the only thing in this world or in the next, that is certain. I AM the undisputed king of this world and any world to come.

I make demons tremble and evil spirits flee. I AM glory, I AM splendor, I AM the personification of love and I AM crazy about you. I AM for you, I AM in love with you, I have a crown waiting for you.

You are the apple of MY eye, I left Heaven to come to earth to save you. You are MY prize and MY greatest treasure. You are MY lover and I AM your KING, everything about you is pleasing to ME, I adore you and you are MY every thought.

Deuteronomy 7:6-8
“For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth. It was not because you were more in number than any other people that the Lord set his love on you and chose you, for you were the fewest of all peoples, but it is because the Lord loves you and is keeping the oath that he swore to your fathers, that the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

#34 – Chase MY Heart

Seek MY face and not MY hand. Seek ME and not what you can obtain from ME. I do not need money to bless you. I do not need possessions or positions to bless you. I do not need man to bless you.

The blessings of life are beyond man‘s insights. Religion is making a fool of you. Don’t do this and don’t do that, I am the GOD of YES and AMEN. I AM the God that said, Let there be and all that I made remains, until I say different.

Through ME the river of goodness flows, there is no peace, no hope and no joy, without a touch from ME. Listen to others if you will and it will guaranteedly cause a deficit in your world. It will cause you to chase MY hand.

There is no need to chase MY hand, chase MY heart and I will give you MY hand. I am more than a Savior, I am a Father, a Friend and a Confidant. Choose today, to chase the better thing, relationship with ME.

2 Corinthians 1:19-22
For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not Yes and No, but in him it is always Yes. For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory. And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.

#30 – Slaves, Servants & Sons

You have been sold a short cut, a way to getting freedom in the flesh, that bypasses the soul and spirit. This will never be so, the laws of sowing and reaping cannot be violated. Many have discovered the immutable laws of the natural realm, but do not know the LAW GIVER.

When you know ME. You are privileged to participate, in more than the benefits of knowing the law, but in the inheritance, the laws protect. This is about inheritance, about the distinction, between moving under a blessing and outside of a blessing.

Slaves, servants and sons all see and know the blessing, but they experience it in different ways. The slave sees & knows, but can only touch the blessing. The servant sees and knows, but can only present the blessing. The sons are different, they see and know, but are able to partake of the blessing.

They can eat the blessing, they can drink the blessing, they can wear the blessing, they can live in the blessing, they can preserve the blessing for their children’s children and they can bestow blessings on the world and impact the culture. I have called you out of darkness and into the light, not for the purpose of slavery or servanthood, but for SONSHIP.

Galatians 4:3-7
So also, when we were children, we were enslaved under the basic principles of the world. But when the time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive our adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father! So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, you are also an heir through God.

#28 – Only MY Glory Matters

Aside from ME is bondage. Why? Because I am freedom. Aside from ME is death. Why? Because I AM life. Aside from ME is depression. Why? Because I AM hope.

You do not have a bondage, death or depression problem, you have a lack of ME. None of these can stand before ME. Why, because fear is subject to ME and must do my bidding.

You have not seen, you have not heard and it has yet to enter the heart of your understanding, how great I AM. What you see as problems, are merely opportunities, to demonstrate MY Glory.

Be clear in knowing, that only MY Glory matters. You can say sickness, I say Glory. You can say sadness, I say Glory and you can say pain, I say Glory.

2 Corinthian 4:13-16
But we continue to preach because we have the same kind of faith the psalmist had when he said, “I believed in God, so I spoke.” We know that God, who raised the Lord Jesus,d will also raise us with Jesus and present us to himself together with you. All of this is for your benefit. And as God’s grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory. That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits aree being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 18So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.

#24 – Keep Pressing

Put your hand to the plow and look to ME. Do not turn to look backward because your future is not there. The ground beneath you is holy and designed to support you in this season, when the season moves, so do you.

Your success in this endeavor will require you wrapping your arms around something new and perhaps foreign. I am guiding you inch by inch, breath by breath, move by move and step by step.

Keep pressing, past the pain, the errors and the defeats. They have all been covered, completely, cancelled and separated from you like the east from the west. The season you have entered is new for you, but old for ME.

It is old for ME, because I formed it when formed you. This is a season that is more than deserving, this is a season that has been destined. Predestined, provided and approved by ME. Walk firmly in this, as a resident and not a visitor.

Psalms 139:13-16
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

#20 – Humble Yourself

Have you surrendered? Are you still working within your own power? Reasoning and strategy can only go so far. It is the anointing that destroys the yoke. The yoke of pain, bondage and fear exist in the spiritual realm and require spiritual warfare.

Use your weapons of praise, worship, the word, prayer, intercession and serving to defeat the enemy. Where I am sending you, there will be conflicts, these are your assignments. To find a resolution in the most difficult situations, to find peace when all have chosen war.

It is easy to make war or to avoid conflict altogether, it is difficult and requires a shrewdness to make peace. A Peacemaker is a divine role that uses skill, strength and a cunning power to establish a peace that can only come from the heavenly’s.

Surrender to the Peace Making power that I have placed inside you. Your plan is good, but a plan formed and forged by MY Spirit can be wielded to dash a mighty blow against the adversary’s strongholds.

1 Peter 5:6-11
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

#19 – You Are Free

Exchange your pain with ME. I will give you beauty for ashes. The pain can have meaning and set others free, if it is examined and filtered through purpose. The hurt shaped you, the suffering molded you, but it does not define you.

Every disappointment, every mistake, every defeat, every crooked place, every worry, every regret, every sin, every doubt, every shame, every weakness, every thought and every concern are extinguished. It is time to lay them at MY feet.

No longer will the past shape your future. You are free and do not owe anyone anything. You do not owe your family and you do not owe your friends. You do not owe a religion and you do not owe any relationship, your peace.

I AM salvation. MY eternal gift is liberty, not a bond servant or a slave you are a son and your freedom is a birthright. To live, move and to have being in the privilege of relationship with ME. Release the pain, accept the freedom.

Romans 9:18-23
Because of the weakness of your human nature, I am using the illustration of slavery to help you understand all this. Previously, you let yourselves be slaves to impurity and lawlessness, which led ever deeper into sin. Now you must give yourselves to be slaves to righteous living so that you will become holy.
When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the obligation to do right. And what was the result? You are now ashamed of the things you used to do, things that end in eternal doom. But now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves of God. Now you do those things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

#17 – Evaluate Everything

Sow a seed, be pure, think pure, move pure & walk pure. Begin to remove darkness from your environment. That which does not produce life, must be cut off, immediately. Evaluate everything, what you see, hear & say.

In me there is no shadow of turning, so shall it be with you. Question all that you consume. Consider every relationship. Consider every thought process. Consider every behavior. Consider the origins of every dream.

The presence of darkness indicates an absence of light. Allow ME into every aspect of your life. I want to be GOD of your intents, motives and desires. Make ME LORD of even your fantasies. Make ME Lord over every passion.

No one is capable beside ME, to satisfy. I will satisfy, if you drink from ME. Drink from ME and never thirst again. Think on ME and you will have peace. Focus on ME and the confusion will become clarity.

James 1:16:-18
Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

#10 – I AM Order

I am asking you to flow in my anointing and cease kicking against the pricks. Everything has a cycle and is synchronized to me. The tides, the orbits, the seasons are on a cycle, know when to sow and when to reap.

Know the difference in the Peters and Judases in your life, both denied ME, but one repented. One was evil and one found his way back to righteousness. You may prefer one over the other, but both are necessary.

This is hard to hear, but it takes both the rain and the sunshine to grow. Move when I say move and stop when I say stop. A harvest that arrives too soon spoils and a harvest that arrives too late causes lost revenues.

Man’s timing is rushed and always self serving. My timing is perfect, slow down and sync with ME. Sync with MY every movement. Relinquish all to ME, your thoughts, your behaviors and your very will. Even in chaos, there is order. I AM order.

Matthew 4:43-47
“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’q and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies!r Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. If you are kind only to your friends,s how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that. But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.

#999 – The Testimony of Brian Keith

I have struggled with sex addicting behaviors since 10 years old, being 45+ now, it has been a long painful and embarrassing 35+ year journey.

The byproducts have been multiple affairs, sexually transmitted disease, unplanned pregnancies, abortions and ultimately becoming an Adulterer. ⠀

I am free now, because God’s grace and mercy have become real in my life. The things, I have been through, were to go through and not to become my identity. ⠀

My situation was further complicated by revealing my addiction to ‘church’ people, this became a source of more rejection and shame. ⠀
For years I wore the addiction like a garment and could not function without binging and purging.⠀

Over time, I realized my behaviors were the fruit and not the root. The root was demonic, not in the ‘scary movie sense’, but in that my thoughts were not based on the owners manual, God’s word. I began realizing God’s plan and that I was valuable because of him. ⠀

We are fearfully and wonderfully made. Freedom from masturbation, pornography and fornication is a reality. ⠀

I now exist as a conduit of God’s Love, His grace, his mercy and His Light. A light to illuminate the path for others and a light of Hope, Help and Healing. ⠀

To read the stories of King David and Rahab the Harlot change my life, I am not defective and have never been. God has always been by my side and my purpose preexists my presence in this body.

My ordeals have made me humble and empathetic towards broken people. What the enemy made for evil, God has taken and made for good.

Genesis 50:20
You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.
