We Disciples

February 27th, 2017

In Matthew Chapter 10 Jesus summoned His disciples together:

1 And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.

We too are His disciples  In Matthew chapter 28, Jesus commanded the disciples:

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen!

Jesus did not exclude you or me from His directive in Matthew 10:1.  Some have left it to the original twelve.  Many others have left that directive to the five-fold ministry as though they have some exclusive right to receive power from On High.  A degree from seminary nor a PhD is relevant to being a disciple.  Many want to simply observe salvation, deliverance, and miracles but do not have the revelation of being called to minister.  If we are disciples then we are called to minister.

The devil is not a menace to us for Jesus has given us power over the works of the devil.  We have Spiritual power over our physical bodies.  The Spiritual operates at a higher level than the mental, emotional, and physical aspects of our bodies.  It must be established in the Spiritual realm first then the outworking will occur in the lower systems of our bodies.  We are to exert influence and legal power over unclean spirits and all kinds of sickness and disease because of the directive Jesus gave us.

These writings are meant to renew our minds so that we will repent from dead works and begin to act solely on The Word given to us by FATHER.  We must act on these directives or otherwise we will become lukewarm and be of none effect.  If you are sick, then start speaking to your own body and demand it line up with The Word.  As The Word becomes greater than your affliction, your body will respond and line up with The Word.  How long will it take?  Until the resistance to The Word is removed and The Word brings back to life those aspects of your body which are resisting life.

When The Word is mixed with faith it profits us.  By hearing, studying, focusing, and meditating on The Word our faith increases and ultimately produces good fruit.  Healing is just one of those fruit.  Casting out unclean spirits is another fruit.  Making disciples of men and women is one of those fruit as well.  When people see us overcoming obstacles in life they will seek out our revelation.  The Holy Spirit will draw them to us.

The first sign expressed by Jesus to the disciples was the power over unclean spirits.  In Mark 16 Jesus spoke:

17 “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;

18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Jesus said the first sign of the believer’s power was to cast out demons.  If it were not so important Jesus would not have emphasized the need to deal with the opposition.  Is it any different today?  Is there less opposition today than there was 2,000 years ago?  From the outset of our life as a believer we are to have power over the devil and his devices.  Let us embrace this Truth as much as we do the message of salvation for they are both connected by the Words of Jesus who spoke FATHER’S Divine Intent toward us.  In John chapter 8, Jesus spoke:

31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you believe and abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.

32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

We who believe and abide in His Word ARE HIS DISCIPLES!  In Mark chapter 3 Jesus empowered the disciples:

14 Then He appointed twelve, that they might be with Him and that He might send them out to preach,

15 and to have power to heal sicknesses and to cast out demons.

Every one of us are also appointed by Jesus based on His determination that we too are disciples.  Jesus sent them out to communicate the Gospel to others (preach).  We are to communicate in everyday language to those whom FATHER has placed in our paths.  We are to be an expression of Love in Word and deed.  We are intended to have power thus we should expect HIS power to operate in our lives.  In Luke 9, Jesus directed the disciples:

1 Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases.

2 He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.

6 So they departed and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.

All demons are subject to the power given to us by Jesus.  We contact people and transmit the Love and power to them.  In Luke chapter 10, Jesus further appointed the seventy:

1 After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go.

8 “Whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you.

9 And heal the sick there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’”

19 “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

Jesus started with 12 disciples, then added 70 disciples and in Mark 16, expanded His disciples to all who believe.  This includes you and me.  Let us embrace the revelation that Jesus gave us power over the enemy and power to heal all those who are sick.  Let us do whatever is necessary to renew our minds to this Truth so that we can minister Love to a hurting world.  It may take much prayer and fasting but let us not be deterred from our mandate.

Our Response

February 26th, 2017

In Matthew chapter 16, Jesus asked two questions of Peter:

13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”

14 So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

Peter responded to the first question by providing the opinions of the masses.  Anyone can have an opinion whether it is right or wrong and it is based on experience, philosophy, and/or man’s logic.  By their nature, opinions do not have revelation else they would be classified as Truth.  Jesus then asked Peter the second question:

15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

Each of us has a choice of how we respond to such a question.  Are we to embrace the Truth or are we to submit to man’s opinions?  It matters not what the crowd says, am I going to accept and walk in the revelation set before me?  Will I walk by the revelation spoken to me or will I succumb to peer pressure and submit to the demands of the crowd?  Do I accept the power of FATHER’S Word in me or do I tow the “party line”?

16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Today, I know Jesus and He is in me.  I practice His Presence in me and around me.  I stand on the Truth in the revelation of Jesus Christ no matter what the opinions of the world would say otherwise.  He is in me and His miracle-working power flows not only in me but through me to others.  His power in me heals and restores me, It gives me life where death and destruction once prevailed.  His Blood redeemed me and He is my Advocate to FATHER whenever I fail.  By His stripes I am healed today, not in some distant future.  Jesus is the Living Christ, the Anointed One Who has come to live in me.  He is alive, He is GOD in my flesh!

I walk worthy of THE LORD, pleasing, being fruitful in every good work and increasing the knowledge of HIM, strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, with all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to FATHER Who has qualified me to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in the light.  He has delivered me from the power of darkness and conveyed me into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in Whom I have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. (Col 1:10-14)

It is my choice to accept or reject the revelation of Jesus Christ in my life.  No one can force me to receive Him or reject Him.  No one can truly influence my personal decision, I must decide for myself.  I choose my response and am accountable.

17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.

18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.

19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Peter made contact with FATHER and heard HIM.  FATHER gave Peter the revelation, he accepted it, and proclaimed it.  Jesus now told Peter that he has now become important to the Kingdom for now the revelation will flow through him to others.  Jesus declared that His church will be built on this revelation- Jesus IS the Son of GOD made manifest to us so that His power and authority will flow through us to establish the Kingdom.  The opposition will not prevail.  Those keys have been given to you and me as well, not just Peter.  We have received the same revelation which has transformed our lives.

Those keys of the Kingdom function to bind and loosen as the situation requires.  Those keys relate to the dynamic power, force, and energy to overcome any opposition to the Kingdom.  The use of those keys is determined by our response to the second question posed by Jesus.  Yes, we have the right to decide.

Dynamic Power Within

February 25th, 2017

Dynamic means- power relating to force; exerting influence; the capacity and energy for releasing legal might; exerting influence or control; faculty for performance.

What is working in us is greater than he that is in the world.  We have the flow of Life working in us and is to work through us toward mankind so that death and destruction are ultimately swallowed up.  By THE SPIRIT Luke wrote in chapter 4:

32 And they were astonished at His teaching, for His word was with authority.

33 Now in the synagogue there was a man who had a spirit of an unclean demon. And he cried out with a loud voice,

34 saying, “Let us alone! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the Holy One of God!”

35 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!” And when the demon had thrown him in their midst, it came out of him and did not hurt him.

36 Then they were all amazed and spoke among themselves, saying, “What a word this is! For with authority and power He commands the unclean spirits, and they come out.”

37 And the report about Him went out into every place in the surrounding region.

FATHER’S Word should become dynamic in us because of its very nature.  Its power transformed us into children of the Kingdom, the greatest miracle in itself.  The Word raised the dead and brought forth life.  That same Word and its dynamic power resides in you and me and it awaits our trust and reliance on it rather than relying on the world’s devices to operate from.  This power within us is amazing!   In Mark chapter 16, Jesus instructed the disciples and us:

15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.

We are to preach (to publish, proclaim openly: something which has been done).  We are not called to be “secret agents” and tell no one who we really are.  We need to be willing to express ourselves and share the reality of the Word operating in us to all whom FATHER sends across our path.  With the dynamic power flowing in us and through us the following is expected to occur:

17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;

18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

What is the first thing mentioned as signs following?  We will cast out demons yet how often do you hear and teaching on this aspect of “signs following”?  We must no longer be timid but instead we must trust in the power of The Word in us to produce the results Jesus expected from us.  The works of the devil are everywhere and we are given the dynamic power to handle whatever situation set before us.  We do have authority over the devil and his devices no matter how they manifest.  It may not be a demon-possessed person but instead may be another outworking caused by the devices of the devil.  Anything in opposition to FATHER originates as a work of the devil.

The power residing in us is greater than any destructive external force that would try to limit us in our walk.  We must not allow those destructive forces to rule over us any longer.  It is critically important for us to grab ahold of this Truth, especially in the coming weeks, months, and years.

Notice that immediately upon becoming a believer we are given the power to deal with the opposing force.  FATHER’S Word does not need to grow in power for it already has sufficient power to overcome any opposition.  The problem lies with our ignorance of the power contained in HIS Word.  We must not let the opposition hinder us, confuse us, hurt us, demoralize us, and make us of none effect.  We must study FATHER’S Word so that we are not ignorant of Its power and authority awaiting our implementation and activation of It in our lives.

We must appropriate this dynamic power in our life.  Jesus expects us to do greater things, not “lesser” or “none”.  By THE SPIRIT Paul wrote in Ephesians chapter 6:

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

We have a responsibility and a decision to make.  Are we going to access the dynamic power within or are we simply going to allow ourselves to be tossed to and fro?  Operating in this dynamic power within takes unwavering commitment.  It takes tenacity when being confronted by the opposition… we must stand!  This power and authority is given to every believer but only those who are not ignorant of The Word and remain steadfast will fully access this dynamic power within.

Standing On Truth

February 24th, 2017

I must stand on Truth thus I must write about it, expose it, and speak it no matter what the opposition will do to challenge it.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Ephesians chapter 6:

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

People are constantly attempting to redefine Truth by manipulating it with positive terms.  For instance, illegal aliens are called undocumented workers.  In pharmaceutical trials, death is called unintended consequences.  These new terms attempt to redefine Truth but FATHER is not be moved when mankind attempts such manipulation to hide their lawlessness.  What is the first aspect of armor does Paul mention when he directs us to put on the whole armor of GOD?

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

Truth cannot be redefined and it must hold up the foundation of your walk.  Without Truth you cannot stand!  Jesus used the Truth to defeat the devil in the wilderness, then the devil left Him.  Jesus wasn’t dogged by the devil on a daily basis Himself.  Once He overcame the devil in the wilderness, He began destroying the works of the devil by preaching Truth in Love.  By THE SPIRIT Paul wrote in Ephesians chapter 4:

14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,

15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—

16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

We must walk in Love and Truth and no longer be quiet when confronted by the opposition.  By effectively walking in this manner, we are then able to destroy the works of the devil without hesitation.

We must not be preoccupied with the devil, Jesus wasn’t.  When confronted with the devil, Jesus resisted him.  When confronted with demons, Jesus cast them out.  When Jesus was confronted with sickness and diseased, He healed them all.  When confronted with legalism by the leaders of the day, He set them straight and revealed their intent.  We too need to be well-balanced in our approach with others.  Jesus did not come to condemn the world, neither should we.  Jesus did not come to criticize those with sickness or infirmities, He came to restore them.  So should we.  Jesus came not to judge people, neither should we.

We must never give up.  Jesus spoke in Luke chapter 13:

10 Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath.

11 And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up.

12 But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, “Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.”

13 And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.

14 But the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath; and he said to the crowd, “There are six days on which men ought to work; therefore come and be healed on them, and not on the Sabbath day.”

15 The Lord then answered him and said, “Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead it away to water it?

16 So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound—think of it—for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?”

17 And when He said these things, all His adversaries were put to shame; and all the multitude rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by Him.

Imagine living with an infirmity for 18 years.  The Truth does not have an expiration date attached to it.  The Truth prevailed over this woman when all seemed hopeless.  Love does not give up and so when we are being opposed, we must stand!  We must not be intimidated by what the opposition has managed to do in people’s lives just as Jesus was not moved by the duration of oppression and enslavement.  It is written by THE SPIRIT in Acts chapter 10:

38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

As we are gird about our loins in Truth and walk in Love, we should expect the same results.

Conquering The Opposition Through Love

February 23rd, 2017

By THE SPIRIT it is written in Luke chapter 4:

6 And the devil said to Jesus, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish.

7 Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours.”

There is an opposing force to our walk and we must overcome that opposing force if we are ultimately to be called “overcomers” in Christ.  Jesus dealt with the opposition and we must do so as well.  Sickness and disease do not just occur on their own.  Cancer cells are in direct opposition to the normal function of the body and they are a destructive force.  Doctors attempt to remove cancer by many methods which effectively tells us that they don’t have the true solution.  The SOURCE of our solution is FATHER for BY HIM is all opposition removed and healing occurs.  We are called to be more than conquerors as revealed by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 8:

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.

34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written: ​​​“For Your sake we are killed all day long; ​​We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

​37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,

39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

You and I are called to open the eyes of the people who are blinded to the works of the devil.  There Is much noise and confusion these days brought about by our overuse of technology.  I grew up when there were only three television channels and now there are hundreds available to divert your attention from what is truly important to your life.  Our smart phones are really dumbing us down by removing the need to think, ponder, and converse with others.  We must not allow ourselves to be swept into the enslavement of technology.  When technology becomes our focus, the opposition has gained a foothold on our life and darkness begins to envelope us.  Blindness is not far behind.  Consider what Paul recounts in Acts chapter 26 when Jesus spoke to him:

15 So I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And He said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.

16 But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.

17 I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you,

18 to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’

We are being saturated with knowledge by the world but it is negative and by its nature is enslaving.  Let our our understanding be enlightened so we are able to see the issue before us.  We must see the issue before we can conquer it.  We must turn people from darkness to light AND from the power of Satan to the power of Our Heavenly Father.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRINT in 2 Corinthians chapter 4:

2 But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,

4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

5 For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake.

6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

This may be the greatest challenge many will face- to conquer the opposition.  It can only be fully accomplished by having a foundation of Love for Love conquers all.  This is why every true overcomer must get the revelation of Love and walk in it in order to conquer the opposition.

The Opposition to Life

February 22nd, 2017

Sickness just does not happen on its own.  Sickness is in opposition to the body’s design of living and naturally repairing itself.  Success is a spiritual event where FATHER specifically intervenes on our behalf.  FATHER’S only limitation is “us” and our level of willingness to allow HIM to flow through us to others.  This flow will have opposition which can take the form of sickness and disease.  Is sickness greater than the ONE WHO designed us?  Is the one in opposition to our calling greater than FATHER WHO by HIS Divine Intent formed us in the womb?  Let us focus on the potential within us. 

All problems are a growing experience.  We need to take advantage of the problem by solving it in HIS Wisdom, not our own.  Overcoming the problem given to us by the opposition will become a testimony to others.  We must remove any programming in our minds that would prevent us from receiving FATHER’S promises of healing and restoration.  Just because others have not overcome the opposition does not mean we are to remain in the same defeated state.  Let not their unbelief prevent us from overcoming the opposition in our lives.

Love is the greatest healer there is.  Love will move us from poverty to generosity; from bewilderment to achievement.  We all should be ministering healing through the power of Love to a hurting world.

Those who are bound to the world are enslaved by a negative authority where there is no peace.  They try to find peace in drugs, alcohol, entertainment, and other such activities.  True peace is only found in Love.  It is not a put down to have sickness or infirmity but instead it is a sign that we need to address something in our lives.  It is conflict within us.  We have been programmed by the outward media to focus elsewhere.  The principle of confusion will draw men and women away from peace and it originates from the devil.  By THE SPIRIT in Matthew chapter 4 it is written:

1 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry.

3 Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.”

4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’

5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written:

​​‘​He shall give His angels charge over you,’

​and,

​‘In their hands they shall bear you up,

​​Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’

​7 Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the LORD your God.’

8 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory.

9 And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”

10 Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.’

11 Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.

You must not overlook or remove this page from your Bible for it reveals the opposition to your life and welfare.  How can people trust in technology which relies on wave forms passing through the atmosphere through the spectrum yet they disregard the works of the devil manifesting all around them?  Jesus dealt with and overcame the devil, so must we.  The Beloved Disciple wrote in 1 John chapter 3 by THE SPIRIT:

8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

Are we not called to do the same?  Are we prepared to do the same?  If not, let us set aside all else and make preparations, first by acknowledging that there is opposition to life and it must be dealt with.  We must become strong in Word and deed, not just hearers only.  The SPIRIT provides us with greater revelation about the opposition:

10 In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother.

11 For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another

Love is the key to removing the opposition to life.  It is the Source where all else are simply tools motivated by Love.

He Chose Us

February 21st, 2017

Jesus had to live on this earth long enough to show us what FATHER is like in a physical person.  When you see Jesus in His everyday life, you should see what your potential looks like.  If you don’t see your potential then you are missing it.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Colossians chapter 1:

26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints.

27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Jesus chose each of us uniquely to carry out our Divine appointment established by FATHER before HE formed us in the womb.  Each of us was fearfully and wonderfully made so as to carry out our calling.  In John chapter 15 Jesus spoke:

15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.

16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.

17 These things I command you, that you love one another.

We maintain our awareness of this Truth- we are the best representation of FATHER this world has for this particular time in history.  As we embrace this Truth, we will develop an awareness of destiny just as Jesus was fully aware of His destiny as He encountered people. Jesus took all of your and my sin to His account so that all of His righteousness could be credited to our account.  This transfer has allowed FATHER to come back and live in human flesh- you and me.  We are now HIS Temple to dwell in and operate through, by The Holy Spirit.  We must not look at our past to determine whether we are worthy.  If we are born again in the spirit, then we are worthy vessels for HIM to reside in.  If we fail in some aspect of our life we must remember that Jesus now ever lives as our Intercessor.  As Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 8:

26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

When Jesus died and rose again, He removed the limitation of one body and replaced the limitation with a multitude of bodies including you and me.  Every one of us has a ministry to communicate the Gospel of The Kingdom whether it be one on one or one to many.  Despise not small beginnings.  It is that simple.  The cross was the door to the transfer mentioned above and the world played into the plan without knowing the consequences of their acts.

We are to be ministers of Love to a hurting world.  Jesus declared in John chapter 14:

12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”

Jesus reiterated in John chapter 20:

21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.”

The Beloved Disciple embraced this Truth in 1 John chapter 4:

17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.

18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

19 We love Him because He first loved us.

Because He chose us, we are not destroyers, not condemners, nor are we accusers.  As MY FATHER Loves me, I Love you.  We overcome the accuser by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony.  Just as Jesus did not come to condemn, neither do we.  The only thing we are called to destroy is the works of the devil.

The Cause of Physical Problems

February 20th, 2017

Jesus expressly stated His ministry of Love in Luke chapter 4:

18 ​​“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me,

​​Because He has anointed Me

​​To preach the gospel to the poor;

​​He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,

​​To proclaim liberty to the captives

​​And recovery of sight to the blind,

​​To set at liberty those who are oppressed;

19 ​​To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”

Given this declaration which originated from FATHER, we must not give credence to any alternative, physical solutions to the issues Jesus described.  Jesus clearly had no issue with the physicians of His day or He would have surely expressed it when He healed the woman with the issue of blood in Luke chapter 8:

43 Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any,

44 came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.

45 And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?”  When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ ”

46 But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.”

47 Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.

48 And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”

Is it FATHER’S Divine Intent of Love for us to spend all of our livelihood on alternatives to FATHER’S expressed Intent to heal?  Those who are fearful are of little faith (Matthew 8:26).  Stephen is described in Acts chapter 6 of being full of faith:

8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people

Barnabas was also full of faith and in Acts chapter 11 we see the fruit:

22 Then news of these things came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent out Barnabas to go as far as Antioch.

23 When he came and had seen the grace of God, he was glad, and encouraged them all that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord.

24 For he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord.

Consider the results of strong faith- Many are saved, the sick are healed, demons are cast out, great signs results, and the dead are raised.  How committed are we to building our faith up?  What will we set aside in order to focus on building up great faith?  Let us read, study, and meditate on HIS Word until our faith is built up and be declared by Our Lord Jesus Christ to be “great” faith.  With great faith we will be able to deal with any physical problem before us, whether at a personal level or someone who comes in need.  The result of great faith will drawn people into The Kingdom and that is what it is all about.

He Healed Them All

February 19th, 2017

In Matthew chapter 8 it is written by THE SPIRIT:

16 When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with His Word, and healed all who were sick,

17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:

​​​“He Himself took our infirmities

​​And bore our sicknesses.”

Jesus cast out the spirits with His Word.  No matter how you look at this passage, you must acknowledge that “spirits” are connected with infirmities and sicknesses. The spiritual operates, affects, and overcomes the physical.  The answer to sickness and disease does not lie with a pharmaceutical.  Instead, the answer in the end is dealing with the spiritual.  In the U.S, there are more commercials promoting the use of pharmaceuticals than just about any other product or industry.  Why?  We are urged to treat the symptoms and not the underlying problem.  We are consistently exposed to alternatives to FATHER’S Divine Intent in the area of healing and restoration.

Were there any exceptions found in the above passage?  No, “all” means all.  Are there demon-possessed people in our midst today?   No doubt.  Believers cannot be demon-possessed but their physical bodies can be oppressed and affected by spiritual forces.  In Luke chapter 4, Jesus proclaimed:

17 And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:

​18 ​​“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me,

​​Because He has anointed Me

​​To preach the gospel to the poor;

​​He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,

​​To proclaim liberty to the captives

​​And recovery of sight to the blind,

​​To set at liberty those who are oppressed;

19 ​​To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”

​20 Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him.

21 And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

Who was doing the “oppressing”?  The enemy.  We are to be the ones to set at liberty those who are oppressed.  The word oppressed means: the feeling of being heavily burdened, mentally or physically, by troubles, adverse conditions, or anxiety.  Doesn’t this definition describe the chronic conditions associated with sickness and infirmities?

If you discount or disregard this aspect of ministry, then you will be hindered in your walk with FATHER.  No, there is not a devil behind every tree… but there are demons to deal with in the spiritual realm and we need to operate in the gift of the Holy Spirit- discerning of spirits.  Jesus operated in this manner as He healed all who were sick.

Are you being plagued by an unexpected infirmity?  We must consider the possibility of being spiritually attacked in order to direct our focus away from our calling.  This may require much prayer and fasting as we deal with such spiritual matters.  Let us be persistent in addressing any obstruction that would prevent us from being fully led by THE SPIRIT and ministering to those brought before us.  Jesus declared that we would do greater things and He did not omit healing those oppressed by the spirits.  Let us also expect to heal them all.
