Givers of love are Heaven sent, and we learn to follow the Star✨✨✨into our destiny for a crown of Glory👑as gift-giver🎁of life, light, love….🌈 A reflection of the covenant rights between God and His people. Birthing the gift of life in you is synonymous with the birth of King Jesus.
Scripture Reading: Matthew 2. Song of Praise: O Holy Night! “The stars are brightly shining. It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth. Long lay the world in sin and error pining. Til He appeared and the soul felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices. For yonder breaks a new and glorious morning. Fall on your knees, and hear the angels voices. 0 night divine, O night when Christ was born. O night, O Holy night, O night divine.”
The night season before the birth of Baby Jesus is a period of reflecting on the gift giver of life. The covenant between God and man, His promises and our obedience for a life of abundance. There comes a time when one ceases to see what’s ahead and needs a guarding star to help with taking another step. In my own night before season of human form, I felt like a child needing to be born over again; and yes, I did need the newness of the life light of Christ. This born again process of renewing my mind was synonymous with the new birth of baby Jesus, a child needing the pure milk of the Word of God for spiritual nourishment.
I can see the chaos of beginnings without form in Genesis and the night season before the birth of Jesus in life today. The night season is a time to follow your star in darkness with death around you, seeking your redeeming light, to sit at the feet of Jesus as He reveals to you His righteous right hand of judgement for your peace, provision, and protection. The symbol of life as we know it in 2020 is really birthing babies in darkness as living sacrifices. For Christians, the original meaning of the tree in our homes represents the eternal life we enjoy in Christ Jesus; and the lights are for His light in the midst of death and darkness. The trees of evergreen and fir are wood, symbolizing humanity, His birth in human form, and the honor we have for the Cross of Christ also made of wood. The tree is decorated in green, red, silver and gold. The green is everlasting life, red is the Blood of Jesus shed on the cross for our sins, the silver and gold are royalties fitting of the King Jesus. Defining moments are those in which you encounter revelation and direction that confuses your enemies but fulfill the prophecy of God’s purpose.
The bells ringing is to announce the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, the hill country of Judas. The baby Jesus must be birthed in the right place. Divine connections are Heaven sent for the purpose of God and His plan. Holly and mistletoe are symbols of peace, joy, and kisses, though not widely practice today; the tinsel wrapped around the tree represents Jesus’ arms of love and peace wrapping around His children. The gifts under the tree are from wise men upon the celebrated birth of baby Jesus, and for His love and compassion shown to us. When you enter the house, you will see the baby Jesus, the vision of your assignment. The light of your revelation will make you worship the baby Jesus. We are positioning ourselves as living sacrifices for the plan and purpose of God. The gifts of frankincense and myrrh are very expensive anointing oils with a wonderful fragrance – an ingredient for sacrifice in worship. The three gifts: gold, speaks of His birth born as King; the frankincense, is the fragrance of life; and the myrrh represents the plan for His death; they are the gifts worthy of a King.
After seeing Jesus, the wise men were warned in a dream not to return the same way they came. Return not to your old fleshly being of self will but to allow the Holy Spirit to lead you down a new path according to His purpose and plan for your life. The death of Herod is the death of your enemies, those that are sent out by Satin to stealyour faith, kill your hopes and dreams, then he would have destroyed your future. However, in Revelation, we learn the fight is fixed in Christ Jesus. When I feed my faith more than my fear, I win!
A child has been born for us. We have been given a son who will be our ruler. His name will be Wonderful Advisor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, and Prince of Peace, Isaiah 9:6. You will be a glorious crown, a royal headband for the Lord your God. Isaiah 62:3. They were thrilled and excited to see the star. When the men went into the house and say the child with Mary, his mother, they knelt down and worshiped him. They took out their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh and gave them to him, Matthew 2:10-11. The Word became a human being and lived here with us. We saw his true glory, the glory of the only Son of the Father. From him the complete gifts of undeserved grace and truth have come down to us. John 1:14 CEV.
“One of the best things about prayer is that it is progressive. It is not a skill we master; it is an unfolding relationship we enjoy”, Joyce Meyer’s the power of Simple Prayer; How to Talk with God about Everything.
Discovering your purpose and identity in life are key components of an abundant life of peace,, and provision. The fight to full maturity and power is fixed and within your divine purpose. God is abundantly more than you can think or ask according to the power working within you. The Holy Spirit’s presence and power are with them that seek Him. According to the bible’s Revelations of Jesus, we already have the victory, your faith is the victory. Nevertheless, we still must fight the good fight of faith continually starting when you first believe. Opposition will be in your daily life regardless of your position, knowledge, and purpose you encountered alone the way. Every anointing I have ever received from God was hidden in a giant I had to fight. And every miracle you will ever experience will be outside your own comfort zone. Your divine connections are of most importance. Not just any connection but those of like minds drawn by the Holy Spirit of God. In a boxing championship match, there are usually twelve rounds. Unless one of the inspiring opponent gets knocked out, it is going to be a fight to the finishing twelve rounds. As with life, we are in the ring to go the full rounds to our destiny of eternal life with an opposing opponent, Satin. So, take the beaten, the punches, duck down when you are able to but always stay in the ring. God is fighting for you so you can take the next step to victory. He will always be there for you, fear not, you won’t fail unless you quit, and your crown of Glory is secured in the hands of our Lord and Savior.
Stay in the know and awareness of the spirit being within you: God is a spirit and we must worship Him in spirit and truth. Our healing is first spiritually in the presence of God, spirit to spirit or iron sharping iron, it’s a mind thing coming out head first. Cultivate continuiously the spiritual you by the way you think, speak, and understand the power at work within you. Regularly feed your spirit with the Word of God for it is a key component of what you think, say and understand, Philippians 4:8-9, allowing the Holy Spirit to work you into His excellent harmonies. The physical body is your world consciousness. This is where our five senses reside; how it taste, feel, and smell, what we see, and hear. The World is feeding and filling your trunk with negative stuff for your senses daily, and the effects of which is based on whose in control, your spirit or your soul. Your soul is where your mind, will and emotions comes into being. You are self-conscious of your own fleshly desires. The key here is love others as yourself and keep self-control of your mind, will, and emotions; the two book ends are there to hold everything together. Anytime your will is challenge, your emotions will be out of control unless the spiritual you is in control. Regularly cultivating your spirit with the Word of God will grow you in the fruits of the spirit. The challenges you face are there to cultivate the spiritual fruits: love, self-control, goodness, kindness, . God wants your spirit to be in control, most of the time – 80/20, so to not become entangled with the web of weeds from your flesh and/or the World System.
Types of Prayers Continued
Prayer of Consecration and Dedication: Here is where my posture and focus are important. Posture of comfort in the right place and time of consecration opens my hearts to receive from the Holy Spirit. Scriptures teaches us to find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted t role-play, Matthew 6:6, role-paying is assuming the behavior of someone other than yourself or as in the field of psychology, it can refer to a wide variety of games. God wants the true and authentic you in the secret place. So I encourage you to build an alter of sacrifice in early morning prayers, a place of peace and comfort in a secret place, and a place of consistency. The effects of which are meeting our need to be in conscious intimacy and communion with the Holy Spirit. Herein, I learn to release my will for God’s Will, Matthew 26:39-44, and to listen to what the spirit is saying to me (inclusive of when to speak or not as in let go, let God), the people and the World. Prayers are two way communications, we speak and then listen for what the Holy Spirit has to say. The key is to stay alert, be in prayer so you don’t wander into temptation without even knowing you’re in danger. There is a spiritual you ready and eager to receive everything from God, but there is also a fleshly you that the Message Bible reference as “lazy as an old dog sleeping by the fire”.
Prayer of Petition, supplication, and importunity: A written and verbal request for help from the one and only God of authority and power, Jesus Christ. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. An insistent solicitation and/or urgency of pressing important. Perseverance has a hope and faith attached to it that not only is God able, but we have a covenant right to demand it. Offering up prayers and requests to God, Philippians 4:6-7; and, praying for the peace of God’s Kingdom on Earth as it is in Heaven. This peace will control the way you think and feel, and the Holy Spirit’s presence will guide you on when to press in more or His timing to release it. There is great power also in letting go. Jesus told the disciples about the effects of continual prayers of annoyance in Luke 18:1-16. A widower’s persistent prayer to an unbelieving Judge for deliverance from her adversary. Because of her refusal to give up and her intolerable annoyance, he granted her desire for deliverance. It is important to know when to press into a more insistence prayer or to let it go into the hands of the Lord.
Prayer of Imprecation or Spiritual Warfare: To imprecate means to invoke evil upon or curse one’s enemies. The prayers of the righteous entrusting God to invoke evil or curses on the enemies of God and His believers; against all evil doers and the wicket, and against the strongholds of the World Systems’ that promote oppression, inequality, and injustice. Although the prayers are directed at the wicket people and systems causing the wickedness, we do not war against the flesh and blood of our families, brothers and neighbors. We are trusting God who works righteousness, and justice for all who are oppressed of the devil. We are binding and rendering demonic spirits of Satan and his legion armies powerless by The Blood of Jesus as we loose the Holy Spirit to go to work. God and His righteous ones are waring against the spirits that causes people in authority to perform evil acts. The binding of evil spirits from the root and seed of conception are speaking directly to strongholds, Satan’s destructive mob, and generational curses. Just as The Holy Spirit of God uses people to accomplish His Will, Satan too must have a body to operate from. This is why scriptures tells us to, “give no place to the Devil”, “an idle mind is the devil’s play ground” and “humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, resist the Devil and He will flea from you”. Your enemies are also God’s enemies and reversal; For these things he hate and so should you; lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and pride of life. We are also taught spiritually to bless those who persecute you; “…bless and do not curse them, never avenge yourselves but leave it to the wrath of God,” (Roman 12: 14, 19). We are heirs of the covenant promises of Abraham to bless and to curse (Genesis 12:3 & Galatians 3:28-29 & 1 Peter 2:23). His wounds became our healing, and blessing your enemies release you but heap up coal on their heads. This is what prayers of imprecation do to the enemies of God and this World.
The Punishment of Judas, Acts 1:15-20: Judas was the guide for those who arrested Jesus, he used the evil bribe money to buy a farm. There he came to a bad end, he fell head first and his body bursted opened, and his intestines spilled out. There the land was named “Field of Blood”. Noting the end of God’s enemy. Woe to those who are enemies of God and His people without repentance. A repentance soul has Glory of salvation through judgement. Praying the imprecate prayers are of importance for God’s kingdom to come on earth, there has to be first a clearing of the pathway, a vanishing of the King’s enemies for His arrival, 2 Thessalians 1:5-12. Thy kingdom come, thy Will be don on Earth as it is in Heaven, Matthew 6:10. The vengence belongs to the Lord, He will repay. In praying the imprecatory prayers, we humble under the finish work of Jesus Christ shielded Blood on the Cross.
Praying Psalms of imprecatory Prayers: These are psalms prayed from an emotional place of my weaknesses. Psalms 35 prayer of imprecate example; “Let them be put to shame and dishonor who seek after my life! Let them be turned back and disappointed who devise evil against me! Let them be like chaff before the wind. With the angel of the Lord driving them away! Let their way be dark and slippery, with the angel of the Lord pursuing them! For without cause they hid their net for me; without cause they dug a pit for my life. Let destruction come upon him when he does not know it! And let the net that he hid ensnare him; let him fall into it – to his destruction”. And other examples are: Psalms 7, 35, 40, 55, 58, 59, 69, 79, 109, 137, 139, etc. Imprecatory prayers are still prevalent today as noted in the New Testament’s Revelation of Christ 6:9-11, “…I say the souls of those killed because they had held firm in their witness to the Word of God. They were gathered under the Altar, and cried out in loud prayers, “How long, Strong God, Holy and True? How long before you step in and avenge our murders? Then each martyr was given a white robe and told to sit back and wait until the full number of martyrs was filled from among their servant companions and friends in the faith.”
Praying In The Spirit: Regardless of where you are in your relationship with God, you will come to a place of uncertainty, discouragement, and insecurity of what to do or say at some point in your prayer life. When you know not what to pray for, you are too weak to pray, or you believe you are sending off the wrong prayer request; it is now the time to allow the Holy Spirit of God to take over, to help you with wisdom and insight. God’s spirit is right alongside helping us along the moment we get tired in the waiting. Praying in the Spirit is trusting in the power of God, seeking His wisdom, and insight to make things right. You are asking the spirit to control the waring of your own fleshly desires, and to encourage, edify, and assure you of His Grace to see you and others through the situation. Praying in the spirit will take you into an intimacy with the Holy Spirit, (Romans 8, 1 Corinthian 14:14-15). This is where enemies of the flesh cannot understand nor infuse your mind with lies and deceit because you are praying in the spirit. This is your spirit to God’s spirit and His spirits is the empowerment for you to be and to do, where downloads of wisdom and insight comes to you. His spirit touches our spirit and confirms who we really are in Christ and helps us to go through the process of exactly what Christ goes through. The Holy Ghost power in the name of Jesus, I believe and I receive it today!
Unhindered Prayers: Pray that your prayers may not be hindered by evil thoughts or doing, and pray that Israel will turn back to the Lord their God, Hosea 5:15; and, 1 Peter 3:7, treat your wives as equals so your prayers don’t run aground. Summing up: 1 Peter 3:12, Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless – that’s your job, to bless. You’ll be a blessing and also get a blessing.
The spiritual fruit and characteristic of individuals acting together with joint identified collective minds for a specific divine purpose organized and maintained as in a corporate form. Example is the Church. However, in today’s environment, it can be anywhere, such as, my home or zoom. Wherever you find two or three gathered in the Name of Jesus’ and His grace, love, and power. The corporate prayer of The Body of Christ is important connections to tap into. As scripture tells us, one can chase a thousand but two can chase ten thousand. In other words, the more you align with like-minded individuals, the more powerful the effect. However, if the truth be told, you only need one in agreement with the greater one, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is the great I am, living within you that is greater than he in the World. Prayers can be just as effective when you aline with The Word of God to bring about synergy, a supernatural force greater than your natural capability.
A sure victory in your prayers come from praying the Will of the Father aligned with your desires, His timing, and your heart filled with fruits of the spirit. Praying for yourself and others require you to put on the full armor of God to lay whole of the Will of the Father in Heaven. If I could just touch the hem of His garment, I know I will be made whole. To be whole is full maturity. Go deeper until you are rock solid in faith, and fear not what man can do unto you knowing the greatness in you is greater than the systems of this World.
Principles of Prayer
Positions of Prayer: Prayers are multi-faceted in meekness and quietness of spirit and encompass the desire for conscious and intimate communion with the Holy Spirit of God. There are primarily five physical positions for prayers noted in the bible and can be of importance to your focus and concentration on the Lord: 1) Sitting, David went into the tent then he sat there and prayed, 2 Samuel 7:18-29; 2) Solomon stood with arms toward heaven in faithful obedience; 2 Chronicles 6:13; 3) Solomon knelt down and prayed; 2 Chronicles 6:14. 4) Standing in meekness of humble forgiveness, Mark 11:25, of what others have done to you; and, 5) Everyone everywhere to lift up innocent hands toward Heaven and pray. We lift up holy hands high above the mind of man’s will to show complete surrender to God’s Will, 1 Timothy 2:8. However, the physical position matters less without a mental and spiritual position of concertation, faith, clarity, righteousness, love, peace, and a heart of forgiveness. Short prayers are also just as effective. Note: Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:5-8, to not talk on and on like show-off or people who do not know God. Their words are as a rhetorical meaningless variation of styles at the expense of thoughtfulness.
Praying In the Name of Jesus, means you are acknowledging Jesus Christ as the Son of God, that Christ has lived, died, and rose again for us, and the Son sits in power and authority on the right hand of The Father in Heaven. No man comes unto The Father except by way of His Son, Jesus Christ, the anointed one and His anointing. I am praying “if it’s your will” as I view life from God’s perspective. God’s love for us is in relations to the degree of Christ in us, the hope of Glory, not the degree by which we are like Him. The Glory comes as we walk in the fruits of the spirit: Love, self-control, peace, joy, patience, faithfulness, goodness, kindness, gentleness, and long-suffering. When we end our prayers with Amen, we are actually agreeing with the Holy Spirit and Word of God. Amen is a Hebrew Word that stems from the word aman, which means certainty, truth, and verily. In Christianity, we pray by ending our prayers with Amen to mean: “So be it”, “Truly”, “It is so”, and “So it be”.
Prayer of Agreement also known as Corporate Prayer: Do not forsake the assembling of other believers speak to The Body of Christ. Acts 1:14 & 2:42, Matthew 26:28. The assembly of other believers is often the Church; however, it can be any meeting place where two or three gather together in the Name of Jesus. The apostles often met together and prayed with a single purpose in mind. The old church communion together regularly to learn, break bread, and pray together. The power of agreement honors the Lord our Father; edifies the mind and enlighten the hearers with the Will of God; bond the believers together in spirit and truth; and encourages, peace, and comfort the hearts of each as the Holy Spirit builds our love and concern for others. “This is the temple where you have chosen to be worshipped. Please watch over it day and night and listen when I turn toward it and pray. I am your servant, and the people of Israel belong to you, and so whenever any of us look toward this temple and pray, answer from your home in heaven and forgive our sins.” 2 Chronicles 6:20-21 CEV.
Prayer of Salvation: This is a repentance of Sins and confessing that Jesus Christ Is Lord. As I receive and confess Him as my Lord and savior, I thank our Father that the price for eternal life has already been paid on the cross of Calvary. I can now receive His life as a living sacrifice fit for eternal life and good work in service for the Lord. Jesus Christ is our Lord, but everyone has a choice to receive Him or not for Life eternal. I encourage you to choose life. Heavenly Father, I come to you acknowledging that I need a savior, I ask you to come into my heart and forgive me of my sins. I renounce Satan and all His legion armies of death and defeat. I confess that Jesus Christ is the Son of a living God who died on the Cross of Calvery, and rose again to life on the third day. Thank you, Father, for saving me and paying the price for my salvation. I love you, and I receive you as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Intercessory Prayer: Intercessory prayers are acts of faith in God on behalf of others’ needs. Because Jesus interceded for us before God, we too can intercede for others, 1 Timothy 2:1, “There is only one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” Praying for others start with a heart of love for God and His people; allowing the Holy Spirit to guide you according to The Word of God. The fragrant prayers of the righteous are something powerful to reckon with. Pray asking God to give us this day our daily bread, Matthew 6:11. The more freely you give to others the more freely the Holy Spirit flows back to you for service. I like to say when you take care of God’s desires, He will take care of the desires of your heart. Your faith in God knows He is the all-powerful, and He hears you when you pray. Your faith is the victory.
Prayer of Faith: Prayers offered in faith, a belief of Jesus Christ as our savior, James 5:15, will heal the sick. When we pray for the sick, we must believe in our heart that Christ has already paid the penalty for our infirmities and transgressions, and by His strikes on the Cross of Calvery, we are already saved from our adversaries. God can do whatever we ask for in faith, Mark 11:25, and we receive what we asked for when we pray. All things are possible for someone who believe, Mark 9:23, and pray the Will of God which is His Word. I am reminding Him of His promises, strengthening my faith in Him, and praying in confidence of His power to do. A part of our faith in action is to trust God’s sovereignty even if healing occurs after death as we know it because He knows best. Death is life in a new dimenision in which God may choose to heal a person. Praise God that He hears you, John 10:27, and has already made a way of escape wherein you will be able to bear it. The Lord All-Powerful is with us. The God of Jacob is our fortress.
Prayers of Praise, Worship, and Thanksgiving: These prayers are a condition of the heart, and have the power to open Heaven’s door for receiving His Holy Spirit. A thankful heart of gratitude and songs of praises, Psalm 95, strengthen your soul and prepares you for your divine purpose. I praise God because I am grateful for the downloads of His spirit empowering me, for all I am or will ever be, and for all His many benefits. A grateful heart is open to receive the goodness of the Lord in the Land of the Living. In worship and adoration, we humble ourselves under His mighty power and in the presence of the Most Holy God. Worship is the highest form of prayer because of my complete surrender, adoration, and intimate communion with His Holy Spirit. Worship is empowring us with courage, strength, and even more revelation of who He is, and who we are in Christ. When I praise God for all His benefits, I cannot restrain from worshiping who He is. My worship further enlightens my soul and spirit with truth and righteousness for His divine purpose. So, I listen to think God’s thoughts with Him and receive His revelation, life, light, and love. The more I worship and praise Him, the more inspired I am to do His Will, Psalm 46:10, be still and know that He is God. I praise God that the hidden truth is not revealed to the wise and educated people, but He gives His wisdom to the ordinary people, Matthew 11:25, the humble and meek, and that’s His mercy. “Lord All-Powerful, you are greater than all others. No one is like you, and you alone are God. Everything we have heard about you is true. And there is no other nation on earth like Israel, the nation you rescued from slavery in Egypt to be your own….The Lord God All-Powerful rules Israel, and David’s descendants are his chosen kings,…”, 2 Samuel 7:18-29 CEV.
Energy flows where your attention goes. The energy of the Holy Spirit is flowing to you with insight, wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Your receiving His Spirit is based on you recognizing the need for deliverance, your desires for others, and your expectations from God. The greater your capacity to receive, the greater the flow. What are you desiring and expecting to do for others? God’s Will for all is that we prosper and be in health even as our soul prosper. He has given us a free will, and it is up to us to want more of Him, to seek His face, and to cultivate the life we desire. Maturity in Christ’s anointing comes with wholeness of spirit, body and soul. There is healing in Christ Jesus for every area of your life: your spirit, aligning your mind with the Holy Spirit of God – being born again with a renewed mindset for the things of the spirit; your body, world consciousness – the way we understand and perceive the world around us are our five senses: touch, sight, hearing, smell, and taste; and our soul, self-consciousness, the mind, will and emotions. Jesus healed them all (Matthew 4, 8, 11, and Isaiah 53). “…He was beaten, he was tortured, but He didn’t say a word. Like a lamb taken to be slaughtered He took it all in silence. Justice miscarried, and He was let off – and did anyone really know what was happening? He died without a thought for his own welfare, beaten bloody for the sins of the people.
God so loved the World that He gave His only Son, Jesus, who has paid the price for our sins already. Jesus comes in revelation knowledge to you to give you His life, light and love to the full until it overflows abundantly to all who receive Him; John 3:16 & John 10:10. Abraham was righteous because he believed God, not because of his works. Receive the Holy Spirit promise of healing by faith, truth, and righteousness. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free John 8:32. The question is who’s going to believe the report of the Lord? My faith, desires and expectations are set to receive the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living for myself and for all people. By my faith in God and the power working within me, I bind all spirits not of the Holy Spirit and cast then out to the Dead Sea of no return; destroyed from the root and seed of conception, in the Name of Jesus of Nazareth. I loose the Holy Spirit for life, light, love, liberty and labors of Christ.
Salvation, A Repentance of Sins Is The First Step To Victory: Once you recognize the things done in your flesh and World Systems that are not of God, repent by turning your acts, thoughts, and words spoken into spiritual power and authority by using the Word of God. Salvation is more than your being saved by grace, an important truth, it also comes with your peace, righteousness, joy, wisdom, insight, power – for self and others. The sweet fragrant prayers of a person living right with God is something powerful to reckoned with. Salvation is free for the believing soul willingly receiving God’s Grace, but it will require you give up your own self-consciousness: mind, will and emotions not of the Holy Spirit of God. “And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shall know that I am the Lord”, Ezekiel 16:62 KJV.
“For if by one man’s offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ,” Romans 5:17 KJV.
Healing Physically, Spiritually, and Mentally (Your Body, Spirit, and Soul – Mind, Will, Emotions): The Word of God continually seen with your eyes, received in your heart, and spoken with your mouth is an act of faith. The Word brings healing for all diseases and dis-eases. The entrance of the Word gives life to your flesh, body and soul. Your body is World conscious; your soul is self-conscious; & your spirit is spiritual. Iron sharpens iron is speaking spirit to spirit for a two-edge sword.
Poverty Both Physical and Spiritual: I pray for good fortune in everything you do, and for your good health, that your everyday affairs prosper, as well as your soul. I am most happy when some friends arrived and brought the news that you persist in following the way of truth. Nothing could make me happier than getting reports that my children continue diligently in the way of truth! 3 John 3-4.
Generational Curses, Root Cause of Strongholds: A generational curse is a stronghold handed down from one generation to another. A stronghold is something that negatively impact a person, and thou it is recognized as something that must be changed one himself cannot change it. A stronghold can only be changed when it is exposed and understood from the root of its existence.
Fear and Death, Rendered Powerless Through Eternal Life In Christ Jesus: We live in the face of death because we believe in Jesus’ life for eternality, 2 Corinthians 3:2-11. I am the bread that gives life! John 6:48. Death has no sting. The perfect love of God not only cast out fear but also takes the sting out of death. He empowers everyone that fears, a reference respect, the Lord and He delights greatly in His commands. Truth combined with your faith is a shield that protects you from the fiery dots of Satan coming out against you. The fiery dots can only sharpen your shield for a new dimension of His power.
I am the Lord your God. I am holding your hand, so do not be afraid. I am here to help you, Isaiah 41:13 CEV. “Don’t Fear! I am First, I am Last, I’m Alive. I died, but I came to life, and my life is now forever. See these keys in my hand? They open and lock death’s doors, they open and lock Hell’s gates. Now write down everything you see: things that are, things about to be…” Amen. Revelation 1:17-20 MSG.
Will Thy Be Made Whole? Breakthrough Victory MSG, Our God Reigns!
“I’ll breathe my life into you and you’ll live. Then I’ll lead you straight back to your land and you’ll realize that I am God. I’ve said it and I’ll do it. God’s Decree.” Ezekiel 37:13 MSG. Those who have been given the gift of righteousness are anointed to reign on the Earth against all evil forces of darkness, principalities, powers of demoniac beings above and below. Christ’s love is the fulfillment of the law we could not do on our own, a gap filler of our limited little to Christ’s infinite. The innocent blood on the cross of Calvary was the plan of God’s all alone; that he give himself as an offering for sin so that our life would come from it – life, life and more life. And God’s plan will deeply prosper through Him. Through what Jesus’ experienced, the righteous one, my servant, will make many righteous ones.
Do not allow any of the negative offensive spirits to cancel out your victory. Offense is the primary reason why people do not receive their healing. “I will go and return to my place till they acknowledge their offense, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early”, Hosea 5:15 KJV.
Now God has where He wants us to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all His ideal and all His work. All we do is trust Him enough to let him do it; its God’s gift from start to finish. Ephesians 2:7-10 MSSG.
Scripture Readings: Mathew 6:13 & 33, 16:18, 22:44, 28:18; Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness then the other things will be yours as well; Galatians 3, 6; Genesis 1, Luke 9 & 10; Romans 3:23, 8:34, 11:25, 13, 15; James 1:25; and Hebrews 12:2. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Songs of Praise: ‘He Wants It All,’ by Forever Jones. Love me, love me with your whole heart, He wants it all today; serve me, serve me with your life now, He wants it all today. Bow down, let go of your idols, He wants it all today. And ‘Faithful Is Our God,’ by Hezekiah Walker; I am reaping the harvest God promise, take back what the devil stole from me. I rejoice today cause I shall recover it all….
The sweet fragrant prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. I am righteous because I believe God and His Word has final authority. Abraham was made righteous because he believed God, not because of anything he did. I am a believer of God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit that comes in the flesh of man as Christ, our Lord and Savior of life. We are created in Him. He that diligently seeks Him will be given His power and authority on Earth. The authority given me defines my boundaries. The Kingdom of God is unlimited, infinite throughout the World, above and below. Full maturity = The mind that is in Christ be in me also. My faith in God + Renewing my mind to His way of thinking + Allowing His Holy Spirit and His desires that are in my heart to guide me into His plan and purpose for me. He makes me a living sacrifice and holy for God’s good works.
We have a free will based on the nature of God and is limited by our own fleshly desires. Our life is first lived in a natural body that cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. Then the spiritual body comes, a new birth, Christ is a life-giving seed. Go, eat and drink for there is a sound of abundance of rain. Send the message to your future that you are coming. Do not get excited about your next until you finish with now. If your face is set to your next with Jesus as your Lord and Savior, some will reject you because they cannot go into your future. Let them go! Next – notes you have learned everything needed for you to take another step. A promotion into a new dimension and your future is greater than your now.
To be effective in prayer, I must first be willing to open myself up to the Holy Spirit. The anointing is being poured into me through The Son Jesus. As I abide in His Word, presence, and worship Him, He gives me the intellectual power to pray His Will on Earth as it is in Heaven. When my praises go up, His empowerment comes down on Earth. The how He will do something is not for me to say. But, as I praise and worship His Holy Name, I receive by faith His wisdom, understanding, and knowledge of every weapon He gives me. I put on the whole armor of God so that I will be able to stand up against the wiles of the Devil. It is not my power that discerns, creates, change, and rearranges the situation. The changes come through the presence and power of God’s Holy Spirit, Jesus The Christ. And victory comes because of His love and divine purpose within me. God is abundantly more than you can think or ask because of the power that works within you. The intellectual power of faith, hope, and love, the greatest is Christ’s command: to love the Lord with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself.

This is far more than you can handle on your own, therefore take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, the spiritual, physical, and the practical: Faith, Truth, Righteousness, Peace, Salvation, Word of God, and your Prayer, Praise and Worship of His Holy Name. He is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresence. (His all powerful and all knowing presence.) Praise Him for all He has done and will do for us by His Saving Grace. As a soldier in the army of the Lord, God outfits me for the battles ahead, I stand firm in peace, and He gives me a new offensive weapon, The insight of wisdom into His strategic plan for victory.
Spiritual Weapons of Mass Destruction: The Full Armor of God, Ephesians 6; These are the tools God has given us for victory in Overcoming Satan’s Attacks!
The Belt of Truth buckled around your waste to hold all things together. Truth is standards and facts on which your core character builds from. We put on truth for sanctification and deliverance. Satan’s greatest weapon is deception; a lying tongue and abomination are wiles of the Devil, and typically used to extract money from people.
A Shield of Faith: The shield in which you can extinguish all the flaming errors of the evil. Shields you from Satan doubts about the faithfulness of God and His Word. Have faith in the one and only God, Our Father. Our faith in God is like a solid golden shield for withering the enemy’s fiery darts, and comes with Kingdom’s authority, wisdom, understanding, and power. The Holy Spirit operates in our life by faith, and we are transformed into the image of His dear Son. The strength of my faith is tested by the optical I endure and survive. Faith is the ability to effect changes in self, others, and the World.
The Breastplate of Righteousness: The is a shield covering a worrier’s heart and other major organs from blows that would otherwise be fatal. This is the righteousness of Christ, received by faith and not by anything we do. The breastplate guards our hearts from false accusations and secure our inner man in peace. When we operate under the King’s authority by faith in Christ Jesus, we are in right standing with the governing authority to receive from God His wisdom, protection, and power to do His Will.
The Gospel of Peace: Your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the good news of the gospel. He will keep your heart in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him. In warfare, the enemy places obstacles in the path of advancing soldiers. The gospel of peace as footwear indicates the warrior is entering enemy’s territory aware of traps set. By continually feeding your faith with the gospel of peace, you will not fear, and you will allow the Holy Spirit to change your course when needed.
Helmet of Salvation: The helmet preserves our way of thinking once our mind has a sure hope in the gospel of eternality. A covering over your mind to protect you from thoughts that control your emotions and actions. Salvation is more than being saved by Grace. It is also peace, joy, and prosperity; for your spirit, body, and soul (mind, will and emotions). The unsaved mind has no hope of warding off the blows of false doctrine because he is incapable of discerning between spiritual truths and deception.
The Sword of the Spirit – The Word of God: The sword is the only offensive weapon and speaks to the holiness and power of the Word. It is a two-edge sword and has an overpowering response to Satan. As a Kingdom minded believer, I believe God has the first word and last word in initiating my response to Satan. I play a small part based on the authority given me and my understanding of His spiritual weapons. I must learn to use the sword against the World’s evil.
My Prayers, Praises and Adulation: God uses the physical things you can see and understand to teach you the spiritual things you cannot see or understand. These are not just words. Each of these has the destructive spiritual power to effect changes in you and around the World. The greater your understanding of these spiritual weapons of massive power to destroy the works of Satan; the more powerful your love for one another grows as if your lives depended on it, and it does. When your praises go up to God, look for and expect the breakthrough of His spiritual download into your situation. Having a heart for God and His people, by asking, seeking, and knocking on the door of salvation, by praying the Word of God continuiously; I invites the Holy Spirit into the situation because of my faith and honor of His Holy Power’s ability to do the impossible.
Drawing Nearer to God in Prayer, Philippians 4:6-9. “Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. Its wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.” Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious – the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.”
The Right Hand of God will guide you in your daily prayers, representing His Five-Fold Ministry Gifts: and, His direction and guidance for what is right, just, pure in a place of honor and authority. Look unto Him who is the radiant light to your purpose, and He is the author and finisher of your faith. I pray that the Lord stretch forth His Mighty Hand across nations to heal, deliver, and set captives free by the Blood of Jesus. The inner surface of His hand from the wrist to the base of the fingers is the heart of it all, love and self-control is what hold everything together; love the Lord with all your heart and soul and others as yourself. I use this as my primary guide in reflecting on the needs of His People:
The thumb is for The Apostles:The Apostle is a Christian Teacher and Missionary commissioned and sent by Christ to preach His Gospel. He makes known the wisdom and mysterious of God for purification. Therefore, a continuous relationship with God is of vital importance for growing and learning the Will of God. The original twelve disciples chosen by Christ to pray for the needs of The Body of Christ’s concerns, plans, hopes, and fears; and for those closes to you. Those within your daily inner cycle. They are your family, friends, confidants, and divine connections encountered in your daily walk as a disciple of Christ. When praying and spreading the joy, peace, and love of God, all are included regardless of who they are.
The Pointer Finger is for The Prophet: The prophet also has roles of the Priest and King; and is one with more vision to rightly interpret and discern the Will of God, Amos 3:7. He speaks by divine inspiration representing God to the people; and in His priest role He represents the people to God, 2 Pete 1:21. As king, he takes responsibility for the welfare of his people and strengthen social connections among leaders in society: inclusive of husbands, mentors, bishops, CEOs, COOs, Presidents, and all those who have decision-making authority. The Prophet advise and declare G0d’s Word directly to Nations; pulling down strongholds that destroy the work of Satan, and plants holy seeds to rebuild the kingdom. He prays for peace in the land and for leaders to govern with a heart of love; and seek daily to receive wisdom from the Holy Spirit to exercise just and right counsel.
Middle finger is for The Evangelist: The Evangelist stands the tallest and reaches the masses in far-flung islands. An evangelist is devoted to the ministry of teaching and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, a messenger of good news. He is unlike the pastor who has a flock but the evangelist may help form new churches and disciple new believers in places where no churches have been established yet. I appeal as a fellow elder and a witness of Christ’s suffering and will also share in His Glory, My reach has the anointing, understanding heart and desire for righteousness in World Views. (The gift of evangelist, Ephesians 4:11 & Phillip reference as evangelist, Acts 21:8.) My prayer are of a willingness and eagerness to serve, and my reach is for Nations and World Systems: Medical, Economical, Housing, Educational, Financial, Justice, Legal, Manufacturing, Arts and Entertainment Systems without limits. I flow in the Holy Spirit of life, light, love, liberty and of labors for those who receive Worldwide.
Ring finger is the Pastor: The Pastor or Shepherd of the house has the heart and love for mentoring the sheeps. The Shepherd of the flock rescues those sheep assigned to him of The Church Body. The church is not a building, but the people you are assigned to teach, encourage, and lead into disciples for Kingdom of God’s business. The Pastor prays and often care for the needs of the weak, sick, oppressed, poor, orphans and widowers. He is a symbol of commitment, covenant, and labor for God in the image of Christ. God is King of little kings, and every king has a kingdom he’s responsible for covering and loving the people. God disciples the chosen ones sending them out to evangelize the World.
The Pinky is the teacher: The teacher is small enough to go in and out of every situation without introduction, invitation, permission and without chaos. You are praying, speaking and flowing life to all that receives in your daily walk. It is also where you come in the prayer. God already knows your heart and needs but wants you to take care of His needs first. This leaves Him obligated to take care of you. Give and it shall be given to you in good measures. When you give others the things you have need of, your faith in action shows God an understanding heart of His role and promises in your life. Herein is what biblical actionable intelligence means when you invite God to cultivate peace, love and abundance in your life.
If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing… Love doesn’t strut, doesn’t have a swelled head, doesn’t force itself on others, isn’t always “me first,” doesn’t fly off the handle, doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, doesn’t revel when others gravel, takes pleasures in the flowering of truth, puts up with anything, trusts God always, always looks for the best, Never looks back, but keeps going to the end. Love never dies. 1 Corinthians 13 MSG.
Scripture Readings: Genesis 1, Matthew 1, and John 11.Song of Praise: Let the Church Say Amen, Marvin Winans; God Has Spoken and I feel it in my spirit so let the Church say Amen.
Chaos is a state of extreme disorder, formless or condition of a matter, confusion; and can also be an abstract demand for change, a personification of the infinite preceding creation of the universe. It is the condition of a matter gone wrong and needing your attention. Are you listening? In its initial condition, the World and all within it was without form. The earth was barren, with no form of life; it was under a roaring ocean covered with darkness. But the Spirit of God was moving over the water. Then God created the Heaven and Earth filling it with day and night, sea and land, fish in the sea and birds in the sky; and then God created man. As with God’s creation of the earth, I have learned when destiny, truth, love, and innocence are being attacked, there is a greater force at work. The Holy Ghost power of God birthing His purpose in the environment of chaos. Jesus, the Divine Christ! He experienced a life-giving birth in chaos. Not only a virgin birth from the womb, but also a sacrificial death. And all the while the Spirit of God is presence at Jesus’ baptism and crucifixion. These dark clouds are not really chaos at all but a coming forth of something new, opportunity for a new dimensional walk of faith, growth, knowledge, and a dose of God’s Holy Spirit creating change. In the year of 2020, massive doses of revelation, wisdom, laws, invention, creative ideals and so much more will be birth from this moment and for many years to come. We have seen already countless books written that capture the history of this moment and many more will come. This generation cannot contain all that will be revealed or gained from the chaos in the World today, and the revelations of the year 2020 will still be talking to us way on into the next century.
In my own experiences there have been many defining moments revealing to me newness of life, revelations, wisdom and even deliverance from strongholds; from my childhood on into my adult life, major moves from North Carolina to New Jersey, New Jersey to Virginia, Virginia to Texas, and back to North Carolina again some 40 years later. The birth of my sons, the death of my sons’ father, my siblings, and parents. Defining moments are a natural occurrence in this journey called life. As an overcomer, each of these challenging experiences required that I grow and change in some way both personally and spiritually. None of this was easy to manage, but life itself does get easier to manage and handle with growth, love, and self control. Even today’s 10/2020 chaos from a medical appointment for a simple procedure. My emotion were tested in a very dark moment, however, with each thought I realized a greater purpose was being fulfilled. I can now recognize the brighter light from situations to allow the much more weight of God’s providence to come through. I know now that all things really do work together for my good because I am called according to a divine purpose. I am still not where I want to be, but I most differently is not where I use to be. God is strategic, and I have gained faith enough to know, He is working all things out for my good. The manifestation of God’s insightfulness of who I am, His purpose and plan, and the blessings for generations to come are the essentials of who I am.
The birth of Jesus was under chaos condition, but it resulted in God’s divine purpose of grace for His people. A darkness that revealed a beautiful grace outcome. It could not have been easy for Mary and Joseph to go door to door looking for a comfortable place for their baby to be born. Then finally, with no more time to waste, Mary had to deliver her baby Jesus in a barn that housed grain and sheep. This controversy brought about chaos in the beginning, but in the end the birth of Jesus brought about salvation for all. God had the resources but allowed his gift to the World to be born outside the system in a burn. His divine purpose prevails regardless. Why? Maybe it was to ensure that no one else could take credit for His creation; born in the image of the Father of all, and a new birth without limits that would change the trajectory of mankind and the World.
Light transforming darkness as revealed in the chaos of this time and season. So, I challenged my thinking to imagine what follows the chaos and to see the World from a different perspective, and to acknowledge God’s desired results from the chaos seen around the World today. If we walk in the flesh without God’s guidance, people will lose their way. As I walk in the spirit, I see the beauty in conditions that can result in a World without poverty, injustice, and lawlessness. I challenge myself to concentrate my energy on this moment long enough to captivate it essence. The cries in the street from four-hundred plus years of injustice, immigration laws taking babies from their parents and putting children in cages with no plan to return a large number of them back, and the burning forest fires in several states destroying millions of acres. What else can this be but an image of Solemn and Zamora destruction of a nation. We are seeing the darkest cloud this nation has ever seen in my generation. Yet, the most beautiful pictures are being created and developed in the dark room of the black clouds. God’s greatest gifts of light come forth from chaos and darkness – creating his greatest purpose. Our weaknesses are one of His greatest strengths.
I ask God to roll the stones away of death poverty and generational curses. Roll back the darkness to reveal His plans and purpose for your life. Truth has absolute power in this sacred moment. According to the election of grace, there is a remnant of God’s people that remain for His purpose. Fear not understanding when destiny and time come together, there will be chaos. I challenge you to always view the chaos happening around you and in the World not as a means to break or depress you, but from a light of God’s Holy Spirit at work creating positive growth and changes. God has given us a new opportunity for making positive change in ourselves and the World. Are you listening, and are you ready!
Scripture Reading, Isaiah 1, Nehemiah 1, Psalm 118, and 2 Chronicles 6. Song of Praise: He’s Calling You, by Donnie McClurkin. ”… Tell me what are you going to do? Your time has come for life brand new. Listen to your heart and your soul, do not evade Him anymore. He’s Calling You. Say Yes to Jesus, Yes to His Call.”
The year 2020 has plagued this country with the most chaos seen in over 100 years. Why? Because the country is battling multiple fronts: COVID-19, not seen since the 1918 Spanish Influenza Pandemic in which my mother lost a sister and a young brother; riots, social injustice, and civil unrest in the streets of America, the worst seen since the 1950s/60s; a return of the economic crisis not seen since the 1920s/30s; a government with characteristics of a mob leader and fascist; attacks against our democracy and the rule of law like this country has never seen before. The West Coast is burning, the North, South, and East Coast have chaos and killings in the streets, all while this nation is being pledged with a pandemic killing more Americans than in any other country. A pandemic that was stopped by other developed countries and could have been stopped under an emphatic government. If there ever was a time for change, the time is now. So, what do I see happing here from a scriptural point of view and what do we as a people need to do NOW BEFORE ITS TOO LATE?
The book of Isaiah, the prophet, tells us what happened long ago that is still relevant today in wake of the current catastrophes. Here is what God’s anger has to say about Babylon, the world system and the people in this country, the Babylonians who have turned from God’s way of doing. A disloyal people who have turned from God commands for their own detestable fleshly desires. A people whose guilt is great, a brood of evildoers, and even children are given over to corruption. They have forsaken the Lord and turned from God’s plan and purpose for anabundant life. God’s decree, “…if you would come back me to repent, I will heal you and make you a great city;…“, Isiah 1:7. The true-blue city is of equity, righteousness, piece, and justice for all. The prophecy of Isaiah and Nehemiah to the remnant of those that survived the exile.
This is history repeating itself all at once. Here is what scripture teaches in Exodus about a generational curse. Even though each generation face multiple challenges from the previous 3rd or 4th, God has given each the opportunity to repent. When these generational sins of inequity are engorges, catastrophes of all fronts can crash at one time. Nations around the World in desolate, cities burning like wildfires, lawlessness, and evil people are adding fuel to an already volatile situation. Like a city under siege. A spirit of fascism has invaded our country with a government intent on lawlessness, deceit, injustice, and chaos. This is not to be taken lightly. God is saying tell those rich in this world’s wealth to quit being so full of themselves and so obsessed with money, which is here today and gone tomorrow. The love of it more than life itself is the root of all evil. This is the horror of what we are seeing today. From slavery, racism, mass incarceration, insurrection, social injustice; etc. I believe it is all because man loved money more than life itself. When our economic depression is because of man’s failureto act or his selfish greed, we are acting totally against what the holy scriptures command; to love God with your whole heart and to love your neighbor as ourselves.
The season we are in cries loudly for such a love for others, but instead the chaos is compared to that of Sodom and Gomorrah also known as ’The Plain’. These are two of the five cities situated on the Jordan River in the southern region of Canaan. The plain once compared to The Garden of Eden, and it’s well-watered, green fruitful land suitable for grazing livestock. However, because of their disobedience, the cities were destroyed by fire sent down from Heaven. The fate of which was used as a warning to those who reject the gospel. I believe this day is also God’s judgment at work in separating good from evil for His harvest. The parable in the Book of John about the wheat and tier, chapter 15, shows us what is happening today from the point of a threshing floor experience. The wheat is separated for good and the tier is toasted out to burn, as with the threshing floor process. God is saying stop bringing meaningless offerings of your burnt sacrifices to the alter. A sacrifice of man’s plans and commands verses God’s. Your incense is detestable to me. Stop doing wrong and learn to do right. My people are being destroyed for a lack of wisdom from me. In other words, this is a wake-up call.
The separation of the wheat from the tier is God calling His remained, to stop doing wrong, serve Him and learn to do what is right. This is essentially the goal of God’s purpose. Ephesian 1:7-10. The why of it is to bring forth fruit and more fruit that will abound in the Kingdom of God.
Hear the word of the Lord, this is what I want you to do: wash and make yourselves clean by renewing your minds and walk in the spirit of God by faith. You rulers, and leaders of God and His Angel Armies, listen to the instructions of our God. I want you to call a fast, repent for the people, and blow the ram’s horn for spiritual victory. God’s decree tells them to go after God, who piles on all the riches we could ever manage—to do good, to be rich in helping others, to be extravagantly generous. If they do that, they will build a treasury that will last, gaining life that is truly life, a divine purposeful life. we will rebuild the old wasteland. An old thing is being made new. Everyone on earth goes through a refining fire to bring forth more fruit sooner or later. The newness of Innovation is in full force now in the Kingdom of God.
This is the call of God, and this is your blank check invitation to write whatever you want for a life in abundance and for the glory of God. GOD IS COMMANDING YOU NOT TO MISS THIS LIFE AND DEATH MOMENT FOR SALVATION.
Breaking news: Here’s what you need to know. We are seeing this headliner daily now with the rising totals of COVID-19 outbreak sparking massive concerns around the World. There are many worries alone with recommended precautions you can take coming in from CDC experts and those in the know. This is not that kind of message but a word of encouragement on how you can keep your spirit high above all the anxious messages coming at you today. Yes, those things you can change, change them. However, there is much about the COVID-19 situation that you have no control over so be cautious of letting the fear that can lead to stress ad anxiety get into your spirit. Spiritual intelligence is all about taking action to use everything you got at your disposal and feeding your faith verses your fear. What you can do is to encourage yourself and others, in the Lord, making your faith greater than your fear.
Encouraging Yourself is a prerequisite of fighting-back. Learning to fight-back under today’s pressures make it essential to use the physical preventive measures being discussed by those in the know but also the spiritual knowledge of your faith in God. To live your best life now, requires everything you know in the physical and spiritual realm. Intelligence in the spiritual has to include your reading, confessing and meditating on the Word of God. God has not given us a spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind for an expected end. Your expectation flows energy where your attention goes, negative or positive. By focusing in on the negative, the negative is what you will draw to you. If you would only believe what God says about a situation, the peace of God will lead and guide your action through all conditions. Because your mind is at peace, you are able to hear what the spirit is telling you to do or not do. This is the time and the situation that require you to make your faith greater than your fear by meditating on the Word of God, and Psalms 91 is a great place to start.
Trust the power of God to see you, your family and those around you through the challenges of today. For it is the power of God to us who are being saved and to everyone who believes. We trust not in the wisdom of man but in the power of God. God’s Power is in His Holy Spirit, which is His Word. As seen in John 1:1-4, “In the beginning was the word… and the word was God, …and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created. In Him was life, and that life-light was the light of men.” Therefore, the truth of His Word is telling us the best place in the world to be, at all times, is in the center of the Will of God. His power resides within His Word and will reside within us when we feed on it. God is telling us His will for us is to know Him. Knowing Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior creates the power we need over our enemies. To know Him gives you the same power to tread over serpents and scorpion and over all the fiery dots of the enemies. A must have knowledge and resource under today’s multiplex signals.
The Kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost being God in the flesh for the Kingdom is within us. We are little kings made in the image of God, Genesis 1:26, made he them in the likeness of His dear Son. This is a very important key. Knowing who you are will make you question you: where are you in your spiritual walk, not in the monetary things but in a balance life of peace and joy? So, how do we get there; that is, to righteousness, peace and joy. We get there by putting on God and His whole armor, by praying and praising His Holy name. The Kingdom comes in three stages: the first stage is deliverance from sin; the next is impartation, the washing of your soul with the Word of God for spiritual growth; and lastly is restoration of David’s Monarchy, love power and authority.
The concept of The Kingdom of God is not a primary space you hang your hat nor territory in a natural kingdom, but it is domain and of power and authority that destroy the works of satin and all his lesion armies. The key to the Kingdom of God is evidence of His power at work in you, through you and around you or areas where God reign supremely. He has the final authority in the decisions you make, the answers you seek and your focused destiny. His will is obeyed in the sacrifices you make in service for others, and the impact you have on others that you encounter in your daily walk. This is bring Heaven here on Earth. Whatsoever, you bind on Earth will be bound in Heaven, and that you loose on earth will be loosed in Heaven. It is not your will but God’s Will be done here on Earth, as it is in Heaven.
Discovering your identify and purpose in life are key essential to a balance work life abundant perspective. This interlectural key in the Kingdom of God is a treasure of darkness, and its hidden riches are in secret places. I pray for each of you to know who you are, to have the discernment in knowing what to bind and loose on earth as in Heaven, and I command the spirit of light to shine on everyone finding their way to this reading.
Fighting in The Army of The Lord requires you to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His sovereignty by putting on God. Have faith in God is an action word and you must DO SOMETHING. Spiritual actionable intellegence in this fight is first to know God and the power of His SOVERNITY. And knowing the authority He has given you. There is a part that you play in this battle but God fills in the gap between your limited ability and His impossibility. If you are fighting to win, you must put on the whole armor of God in its completion of truth, faith, righteousness, peace, and salvation. These are weapons of mass destruction and they will bring you through the wilderness to victory. As an Overcomer, God has brought me out of the darkness of “I don’t even know who I am”into the marvelous light of “Christ in me is my hope of glory”. The Holy Spirit emptied me of the lesser me and is filling me with the greater from an empty vassal. This was the fight of my life to get here sane and clothed in my right mind. God calls many but only a few are chosen. Why?
You must be desperate enough for God’s promises to fight for them. This is a pit bull experience. How bad do you want it.
Desperation combined with expectation bring forth the revelation; you have to expect more to receive more from God infinite wisdom.
You must grow in and through the process; an attitude of the graduate is key. Praise God for His Grace, Mercy, and for who He is. You are like the Israelites in a wilderness experience but praise God for the lessons learned for more blessings to flow.
A continual practice of asking according to The Word of God, then seeking and knocking until the door is open to you.
Abide in the Holy Spirit for more of the Lord and less of you; feed your faith more than your fears by allowing the mind of Christ to rule in you continually.
Know with whom and what you are working with; put on the full armor of God in truth, faith, righteousness, peace and salvation; learn to use the spiritual weapons we fight with that are not physical.
Then just DO IT, it what? whatever is in your hand to do? as you go the way will be open to you and overflow to others in due season.
We Are the hands of God in the earth to flow His love and life in abundance. God has given us the power and authority therefore nothing on earth can happen unless you believe by calling it into existence. We have the power over every living thing, believe it and receive it in Jesus’ name, Genesis 1.
The wind blows where it wishes, you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from nor where it goes. So is everyone born of the spirit of God (John 3:8).
