Power over nature - Is it ours?

 Jesus said that "If you believe, the works that I do you shall do also, and greater works than these shall you do because I go to my Father."  John 14:12  Since Jesus operated on delegated authority that was given to Him by the Father, we have been given the same power by Jesus!  Remember John 5:27 "The Father gave Jesus authority on earth to execute judgement because He (Jesus) was the Son of Man." Here,John the writer, emphasizes Jesus humanity to show that Jesus was operating under delegated authority.  Why?  Because Jesus knew we, as only humans, would be operating under the same principle. So Jesus later said all authority in heaven and earth was His and He gave it to us! (Matthew 28:18 - 19)  But it operates by faith.  If you believe you have His power, you have it. He said, "Have I not given you power, on earth, to cast out demons and over all the power of the enemy..."  Luke 10:19  His power in and through us is only limited by our faith.  Faith can move mountains... but it has to be received and released on earth. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. You can only declare by faith what is clearly declared in GOD'S WORD! Beyond that it is assumption and presumption. Fill your heart and mind with scripture that releases your faith. Then confess the words with you mouth. Circumstances and old failures will not do. Put those behind you and renew your mind with God's unchallenged power... His uncompromising word! You can learn more about kingdom living and become a student of God's word.  Write you own living commentary of the entire New Testament by signing up for Kingdom Life University.

Discover your Purpose - Found in God's Goodness!

  God's pleasure is your prosperity!  God, by His goodness and providence, has created the universe to serve His pleasure and He delights in showing this to His children.  He even went so far as to say, "All things work together for good to those who love Him., to those who are called according to His purpose."  Rom. 8:28  He also adds, "If an earthly father knows how to give good gifts to his children, how much more does the heavenly Father know how to give good gifts to us."  Wow!  Are we getting it?  Don't let your past failures, disappointments and discouragement block His love.  I pray today your love may increase in revelation of How much God loves you.  May the Holy Spirit open your heart to receive this awesome truth.  You give God pleasure...quite a thought, right?  Yes, Eric Liddell the uncompromising Olympic racer said that he felt God's pleasure when he ran. Why?  Because he was able to receive this revelation knowing he was fulfilling his purpose.....that he was loved and was running to give God pleasure.  When we find out our purpose and run our race we give God pleasure!   Find out more about God's will for you life, enroll in Kingdom Life University.  Your Time, Your Place, Your Destiny!

God's Providence - Goodness manifest

  Providence is God using all the resources of His creation to show us His love.  When we look over our past life, we can see God's hand over and over again directing people to us at exactly the right time, supplying our needs at the right time, and caring for us with His gentle love.  Providence exalts the sovereignty of God.  God is in control of everything in our lives that we place in His hands.  "All things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose."   In today's video I share the story of Isabella, my daughter, and how she could have been seriously injured, but God by His divine providence had already allowed a bad repair on my car that saved her from broken fingers and a broken hand.  I love to reflect on how God has demonstrated His great wisdom and grace in protecting me again and again. The first airplane I bought was a Bonanza.  The gas tanks had been improperly installed and showed the wrong amount of fuel in the tanks. Flying home to Colorado they became empty but one showed still 3/4 full on the gage.  I ran out of fuel flying the airplane home from Indianapolis where I had bought it.  When the engine stopped, it was right over the top of the Brush, Colorado airport.  I was a 8 thousand feet and had plenty of time to prepare for an emergency landing. I circled the airport several times and prepared for the approach and landing.  I actually rolled out at the exit of the runway almost right up to the gas pumps!  Talk about providence.  God is good!

Greater Revelation - Looking to Jesus

   To receive a greater revelation of Jesus Christ you must increase your capacity to receive His love. Peter tried to express his love for Jesus over and over by performance and self effort.  Jesus finally had to ask Peter three times, "Do you love me"?  Like many of us, we try to love God and even want Him to know it.  But the apostle John had learned the secret of receiving Christ's love by building intimacy with Christ.  So much so, he was able to lay his head on Jesus breast and not be embarrassed. John said over and over again, "I am the disciple whom Jesus loved".  He did not see his love for Christ but Christ's love for him!  That is the key to receiving a greater revelation of Jesus Christ.  How do we increase our capacity to receive His love?  
1. Receive His forgiveness.  Shame blocks love. Jesus is perfect and perfectly forgets our sins once we have confessed them.  "He removes them and places them in the depths of the sea and remembers them no more." ... He perfectly forgets!!!

2. Read His word.  I know it almost sounds too good to be true.  It's because His grace provides His love, not our performance.  We understand this totally by FAITH, and faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.  Ephesians says, "That you may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height -  to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God."  (3:18-20)

3. Repeat it over and over again to your heart!  We have been so taught that God is not good, that He is to blame for all the terrible things on earth and in our lives.  This Satanic lie has distorted the truth that Jesus came to reveal two things about God the Father... "Grace and Truth".  Keep repeating over and over and over... "I am the disciple whom Jesus loves" until it begins to connect to the truth of God's love.  

Because John understood this simple truth, He received the entire book of Revelation of Jesus Christ!  Please watch the 3 minute video above to receive more revelation about this great truth

His Power... Your Power... Amazing - Ephesians 1

How would you like to be over all principalities, powers and rulers of this world? Men of power have been striving to take their kingdoms and empires world-wide and to conquer all other kings. Men like the Ceasars, Nepoleon, Hitler and the ancient empires of the Romans, Greeks and Medo Persians. Empires rise and fall.  But there is one kingdom that shall last forever. "Of the increase of His (Jesus Christ) kingdom and His government there shall be no end." ( Isaiah 9:6) We often don't view the Kingdom of God as a government.  We think it is some kind of invisible kingdom of the heart and will never manifest outward in the natural world.  Nothing can be further from the truth.  God's kingdom and government has always been expressed with natural order on earth.  In the Old Testament God was king of Israel and the prophets, like Samuel, were His earthly spokesmen.  Then Israel wanted an earthly king and Saul became that king.  David completed the restoration of Israel's earthly kingdom after Saul in disobedience lost both territory and earthly authority.  Jesus then came as a descendant of David which gave Him earthly rights of inheritance.  But Jesus went beyond any earthly king and established His right to rule not only the natural realm but the spiritual.  He defeated Satan and took possession of even the keys to hell.  We know that because in the book of Revelation, Satan has to go to Jesus to get the keys to hell itself to release the scorpion demons that will torture men. Jesus, after His resurrection then announced that "All power has now been given unto Me in heaven and earth."  ( Matthew 28:18) Satan today is simple operating by permission.  Satan had admitted at the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness that this power had "been given unto him".  Now comes the big story!  Through our identification with Christ, we have been seated in heavenly places!  All that Christ has is now ours because He chose to give us His kingdom.  No place in Scripture is clearer than Ephesians chapter 1.  All things were given to Jesus because He fulfilled all righteousness and then He "gave all things over to the church, His body" Ephesians 1   How is Jesus authority expressed in this church age?  Clearly through the 5 - fold ministries.  These, by Jesus own words are the "Headship Ministries" of Christ today.  Apostles (first), prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers.  Satan has tried to discredit especially the office of apostles and prophets with much of the evangelical church. This is greatly unfortunate, because it diminishes the authority and power on earth of Christ's present ruler  ship.  We will find later in our study of Ephesians chapter 4, that these 5-fold ministries bring the body of Christ to full maturity and preparation for the return and earthly reign of Christ which we call His "Second Coming". Much of the church is in deception, as Paul said it would be, about the purpose of Christ's return. Many see it as an escape off this earth and all it's troubles.  God's word teaches it is not an escape, but an establishment of Christ's rule over planet earth.  If you want more information, please go to my studies on the book of Revelation.  Please take a few minutes and listen through the first chapter of Ephesians to see who Christ is and who you are "in Him".

Love Obama - Romans 13 Christians & Government

Are we getting it all wrong?
I know the popular trend is to bash our president.  I realize that he is just a man and will make many good and bad decisions.  But I really have a difficult time with the general attitude toward our national leaders by conservatives and many in the Christian community. What does the the bible say? Romans 13 is about as clear a passage on our attitude toward government as you can get.  Those that oppose and resist God's appointed leaders, for that is what He calls them, will come under the judgment of God. Romans 13:1 - 2 "Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves."  Romans actually says those who resist will experience God's wrath! WOW!  Have we been getting this all wrong. I know there will be many of you that disagree at this point because you feel it is your responsibility to criticize, put down and degrade our president.  Do I agree with president Obama on all his decisions?  Absolutely not! But I respect his God given appointment.  David chose not to criticize King Saul, even though he had many legitimate arguments against this king.  He said, "I will not touch the Lord's anointed."  Is the church largely experiencing lack of power today in other areas of blessing and authority because we simply don't follow a command as clear as the nose our face? I am not saying that all Christians bash our president, but many do. Let's repent!  Remember Paul was writing this book of Romans under much worse government than we have in the USA.  How about Nero running our government?  Also Paul said we should willingly pay taxes because it is the responsibility to do so for any nation.  I know this post will be as popular as an alligator in your back yard, but truth is truth.  How can you argue Romans 13?  Now if the government says we must deny our faith, we are subject to a higher power... God's kingdom!  But remember that when you go to the higher power of God's purpose you will suffer the wrath of that human government.  You may be be flogged, imprisoned or even executed.  Let's thank God for a government like America that provides us such freedom to worship Him openly!  Protect it we must and respect we must! Let's pray for those in authority. Let's love them with Christ's love!  Paul gives 4 arguments in Romans 13 why we should be subject to governmental powers.  
  1. For wrath's sake - (that is the wrath of God against those who resist)
  2. For conscience sake
  3. For love's sake
  4. For the savior's sake
You can hear these taught in the video below.  Please check it out...your future blessing may depend on it!

5-fold Church Governing Gifts of Jesus

The gifts of the Spirit that came directly from the hand of Jesus Christ are called the "Headship Ministries" or 5-fold gifts of Ephesians chapter 4:11.  "He gave some  to be as apostles, some prophets, some evangelists and some pastors & teachers."  Why?  To govern His church with authority and love.  Why has Satan discredited some of these gifts for today.... particularly the gifts of apostle and prophets? Because Satan is trying to remove the authority Jesus gives on earth to execute His kingdom in this age.  The gift of the apostle was the first discredited through church history, and will be the last to be restored before the coming of the Lord.  Where the apostolic gift has not been discredited, it has be distorted!  Self appointed ministers running around calling themselves apostles who are not "called to be an apostle" as Paul stated. Paul said even in his day some "false apostles" had come in among the sheep. So we are not surprised.  True apostles will always be recognized in their office before appointed by contemporaries who understand the true gift.  They are literally functioning apostles before they allow themselves to be called as such.  Apostle's do foundation work of planting churches, reaching unreached territory that has never heard the gospel,, and establishing God's work with the authority that comes directly from Christ. They carry "signs and wonders" as confirmation from Jesus Christ Himself. They change atmosphere's over cities as Paul and Silas did in Philippi. They may land in jail but usually don't stay long, both leading the jailers to Christ and starting a church. Why do I teach on apostolic alignment?  Because it is vital in this day for accomplishing true kingdom work in your city. Find an apostle and attach!  Build a close relationship with an apostle to which God has called you or to which you choose to walk. I cannot emphasize enough how important this is both for your protection, direction and anointing.  Prophets follow along with apostles.  They are spiritual :"seers".  They discern what God is saying "now" to the church.   7 times in Revelation, picturing the end-time church, God says "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the church." This is by far the most important call of the church today... knowing God's "now" word for the church, the city, the nation and the world. This is possibly one of the most important teaching I do today.  Please listen to his video teaching and make your comments below.

Israel - Her Future Destiny!

Operation "Protective Edge" of 2014
You will recall that I mentioned something significant would happen in Israel in 2014 -2015 around the 4 blood moons.  Also I mentioned through my prophecy I gave in December of 2013, that the number 4 is significant for 2014.  It has begun!  Hamas has activated conflict by firing over 2,000 rockets toward Israel.  Yet the world media is showing the death of civilians in the Gaza strip and among the Palestinians. Israel would likely have the same number of deaths if she didn't have the "Iron Dome" protection of interceptor rockets shooting down the incoming rockets of Hamas. The Hamas purposefully places these rocket launchers around hospitals and mosques and in key places to create civilian deaths.  This is all part of a propaganda campaign to create anger and animosity toward Israel for simply defending herself.  Wouldn't America aggressively respond if 2/3rd of American cities like New York, Chicago, San Francisco and other major cities were being rocketed daily?  As I was praying for Israel tonight I felt I should write this post.  A new alignment is forming both for and against Israel.  Praise God that America, and especially the Christian community, is responding in support of Israel. Remember that something significant is going to happen in Israel around the 4 blood moons both this year and next.  This is not the first time this kind of conflict has occurred between Israel and her neighbors. It happened in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2012 and now in operation "Protective Edge" in 2014.  Now, however, more sophisticated rockets are being deployed, mainly from Iran's supply to Hamas. Why is this round of conflicts significant?  It is polarizing radical Islam against both Israel and the United States. Things are building toward a greater escalation of events in preparation for the antichrist.  We live in an age of greater social communication skills among our enemies. Propaganda levels are rising among radicals. This conflict may close within days, but it also may grow into something significant very shortly.  Perhaps America will finally take her stand aggressively against Iran's supply of these rockets to Hamas. America and Israel must not let Iran continue her development of atomic weapons. Could we be on the edge of a much larger conflict?  Could this be a part of a great awakening spiritually for Israel as she joins together with the Christian community which now seems to be Israel's biggest ally?  Here is my study on Romans 11, the chapter Paul the apostle wrote almost 2,000 years ago concerning Israel's spiritual awakening at the end of this age.
