CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO: staying connected


When someone is born again God is the craftsman of their recreated spirit... One is not made better than another... Both are born again perfect in spirit by the hands of the master... Then why are some Christians bringing forth more fruit than others? Why do some lights shine brighter than others? Has God made one better and one worse?  The issue isn't that one Christian was better made than another... The issue isn't that one is stronger... The issue isn't that one is trying harder...
Does the fruit on a branch labor to grow or does it just draw strength from the vine...  Listen to the message "STAYING CONNECTED"

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO: All God's blessings come through his righteousness that he has given to us as a gift through Jesus and his work on the cross

Romans 4:13 For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.


It's an elusive concept to wrap your mind around but it's actually the core concept of Christianity... Even though it is shared very little... The old covenant was based on us earning our own righteousness before God... All failed... The new covenant is Jesus giving us his righteousness as a gift through faith in him and his work on the cross... It free's us to enjoy and unconditional love and an unconditional blessing... It's really good news... So good it's hard for folks to believe and therein is the challenge :)

Righteousness Is Not Right Doing But Right Being

Romans 4:5
5But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness

What do you think righteousness is about? Something you do or something you are? Right doing or right being?

The Bible tells us that after Jesus’ sacrifice at the cross, God imputes righteousness not to those who strive to obey the law (Galatians 2:16), but to anyone who believes in His Son. Because Christ took our sins and gave us His righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:21), the moment we believe in Him, God treats us as righteous apart from our works or obedience. (Romans 4:5–8) This is new covenant righteousness — a righteousness that comes by faith and not works.

You are not righteous because of how morally upright you are. You are not righteous because you exercise self-control. You are not righteous because you read 10 chapters of the Bible daily. You are not righteous because you feel righteous. But you are the very righteousness of God in Christ solely because the sacrifice of Jesus made you so. When you believe this, your faith is accounted for righteousness.

And this is what God wants you to use your faith for. If you are righteous by your deeds, you don’t need faith. You also don’t need faith to know that you are sinful. But you need faith to believe and declare that you are the righteousness of God in Christ, in the midst of your struggles with temptation and sin.

For example, when you feel lousy because you have just shouted at your wife, God wants you to exercise your faith to see yourself as still righteous in the midst of that failure. This living revelation that you are still righteous will give you the strength to love your wife and reconcile things with her.

The devil may remind you of your foul temper and question your integrity: “How dare you call yourself righteous when you just did that!” Just ignore his lies and boldly declare, “I am not righteous because of what I have done or not done. I am righteous only because of the blood and finished work of Jesus at the cross!”

Click here to listen to The New Covenant Produces Spirit Led Christians The Old Covenant Produces Law led Christians

If we rightly divide the word and preach the new covenant accurately we will produce mature sons and daughters of God led by his spirit. If we mix the covenants when we preach, we produced confused Christians who can't discern between the voice of the enemy and the voice of the spirit. They end up in co-dependant relationships with their leadership unable to have their own relationship with God. They live confused and miserable lives, marching around the mountain and never able to go into the promise land. Thank God, he is revealing to us the new covenant so we can enjoy Jesus and all he has provided for us....
No more wandering, we are going in, led by his spirit. Glorifying Jesus and not man the whole way in....

Click HERE TO LISTEN to You Gotta let Jesus wash your feet

God has called us to live in this world but not be of it. God has called us to impact the world we live in and influence those around us in our daily lives. But so much of the time the church congregates like monks in fear of contamination from the world, that they cannot be a witness or a light for fear that the "dirty" people might rub off on them. I believe with all my heart you have to watch what goes into your ears and eyes, but if God wanted us out of this world then when we got saved we would instantly pop into heaven. The only problem with that is that God has called men to carry the good news of the Gospel and if  there are no men on earth there is no witness. Think about it you wouldn't have gotten saved if someone hadn't told you. Jesus spent time with real people that had real problems, but he was so full of Grace and truth he rubbed off on them they didn't rub off on him. In this message we will be looking at the revelation of the washing of the water. The gospel continually cleanses you so you can live in a dusty imperfect world and walk as a light in darkness without that darkness overcoming you but the light within you Overcoming this world's darkness. I'm not afraid the world is going to contaminate our children, our children are going to contaminate this world, WITH JESUS. But if we don't understand the revelation of the water of the word. We will in fear of the world congregate together and never impact this land we live in.

John 17:15
I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

Click HERE TO LISTEN The simplicity of Christ

2 Corinthians 11:3

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.



God likes to keep things simple and powerful. Man likes to make things complicated so he can somehow take credit for it. The simplicity of Christ is a beautiful thing. Jesus is your saviour and you don't just get "saved" when your born again and then you have to fend for yourselves. No Jesus is your saviour right now!!!! And whatever you are facing he is ready to save you from it. When a lifeguard saves a drowning child does he stop to quiz her on how she got herself into this situation. Does he stop and make sure she is qualified to be saved? No he saves her!!! Don't you think Jesus is a more noble and honorable saviour than any lifeguard. Whatever you are facing Jesus plunges into your battle and fearlessly pulls you out. That is the simplicity of Christ and we have lost sight of that.
The devil really likes to complicate things. Especially your relationship with God. Jesus is your hero and he saves you because of who he is not because you "qualify" for his promises by earning them  with your goodness. It's his goodness and his blood that has qualified you. All you have to do is believe that he is that good. So call on your saviour today and enjoy the simplicity of Christ.

Click HERE TO LISTEN The New Covenant is based on Grace not works

The new covenant is based on grace not works. If you try to earn a gift it's no longer a gift, it becomes a wage. God is not our employer he is our father. When we try to earn things from him rather than receive through Grace we frustrate the entire new covenant and NOTHING works properly. When we realize that Jesus earned it all and has freely given it to us by his grace then we can begin to be sons and daughters and not employees trying to make God in debt to us because of our good behavior. Legalism is trying to be good enough to control God. Understanding Grace allows us to live by faith and receive every good gift that comes down from the Father of lights.

Click HERE TO LISTEN The Foundation Righteousness by Faith

Hebrews 5:12 - 6:1
when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

The foundation of our Christianity is that we are righteous by faith and not by works. until we understand and believe that, we are on baby's  milk and not meat. We are left in the horrible position of being unable to grow up and mature. A very frustrating place. Most Christians are so busy trying to impress God, they have no time to be impressed by God. Instead of enjoying the wonders of his majesty they are very busy waving the rags of their own righteousness trying to get his attention not realizing they clothed in the righteousness that Jesus died to provide for them.  Join us as we dive into the true gospel and behold Jesus, not man....

Click HERE TO LISTEN TO A time of Revolution and Reform.

You and I are living in a time of revolution and reform. Webster's dictionary defines reform as

REFORM: A change for the better as a result of correcting abuses

And defines revolution as

REVOLUTION: a drastic and far reaching change in ways of thinking and behaving.

We are living in a world where we dramatically need change. Everywhere,  in our government, in our economy, in our health care, in our schools, in our homes and families...EVERYWHERE  we desperately need change.  And this change that we so desperatly need begins in the house of God. The state of the world  reflects the state of the church. We need revolution and reform in our churches. We have gotten so far from where the church began in the book of acts, it's only our T-shirts and bumper stickers that announce our Christianity.  We are the salt of the world.  We are the preservative.
Matthew 5:13
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? 

We need reform and we need change. Jesus is coming and his bride is a mess. But I believe God will do a quick work as the true gospel is restored and preached in all the earth. We are living in a time when dictators are falling, terrorists are dying, and the next move of God is stirring. There is a changing of the guard happening right now. The Eli's and Saul's are being removed and the Samuels and David's are rising up. God is Preparing the body of Christ for The final move of his spirit before Jesus comes to take his bride home. This revolution... This reform is a return back to our first love. A return to Jesus. A return to grace.
Please enjoy...

Click HERE TO LISTEN In Jesus all God's promises are ALWAYS YES!!!!

                   We have spent several generations restoring the awareness of the promises of God. Healing, protection, prosperity, wisdom, direction the list goes on and on. He has given us exceeding great and precious promises as expressions of his love for us. The promises of God are wonderful and thank God these truths are being restored to the body of Christ. But to focus all our attention and faith just on the promises is misguided because Christianity then becomes a formula for blessing and not a relationship. the enemy eventually takes it out of the realm of grace and into the real of works and "earning" the promises of God with our supposed spirituality. In our zeal for the blessings we end up going back under the old covenant and forget Jesus and the work of the cross. Our attention and the focus of our faith should be on Jesus and his finished work which qualifies us for these wonderful promises through his grace. If we take our attention off of Jesus and on the promises alone we find ourselves trying to qualify for what has been given as a gift through his grace. Jesus is reclaiming his own Gospel knocking on the doors of men's hearts. He's reclaiming our love and our attention inviting us to sit down at the table of his grace and to freely enjoy his promises. All the promises IN HIM are yes and amen!!!

Click HERE TO LISTEN Coming out of Babylon

Today most ministries preach a message of Grace balanced with a mixture of law. It may seem good and logical to balance the message of grace (unmerited favor) with a message of law (earned favor) but what man calls balance God calls mixture. You can't put new wine in old wineskins and you can't mix the old and new covenants. God is calling his church out of this error. (The book of Galatians addresses this issue.) God is leading his church out of Babylon. Babylon comes from the word babel which means confusion through mixing.  When you mix law and grace you lose the power of both and religion is born. It becomes a man centered religion and not a Jesus centered relationship.

Newsboys: Real Good Thing Lyrics

Songwriters: Furler, Peter; Davis, Jody; Taylor, Steve;


When we don't get what we deserve
That's a real good thing, a real good thing
When we get what we don't deserve
That's a real good thing, a real good thing

Born to sin and then get caught
All our good deeds, don't mean squat
Sell the Volvo, shred the Visa
Send the cash to Ma Theresa
Great idea, the only catch is
You don't get saved on merit badges

When we don't get what we deserve
That's a real good thing, a real good thing
When we get what we don't deserve
That's a real good thing, a real good thing

Doctor's coming, looking grim
"Do you have a favorite hymn?"
Check your balance through the years
All accounts are in arrears
Guilt is bitter, grace is sweet
Park it here on the mercy seat

When we don't get what we deserve
That's a real good thing, a real good thing
When we get what we don't deserve
That's a real good thing, a real good thing

When we don't get what we deserve
That's a real good thing, a real good thing
When we get what we don't deserve
That's a real good thing, a real good thing

When we don't get what we deserve
That's a real good thing, a real good thing
When we get what we don't deserve
That's a real good thing, a real good thing

Come As You Are And Receive!!! Matthew 15:27 27And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.”

Come as you are to the Lord with your need, and lean on His unfailing and unconditional love for you. You don’t have to pretend to be more than what you are to receive the blessing you need from God. You don’t have to pretend to be someone else to appear more deserving to receive from God.

A Canaanite woman desperately seeking healing for her demon-possessed daughter came to Jesus. (Matthew 15:22–28) Knowing that He healed and did miracles among the Jews, she pretended to be a Jew, calling out, “O Lord, Son of David!” (Only the Jews addressed Jesus as the “Son of David”.) Jesus did not answer her. His silence made her drop her pretense and cry out, “Lord, help me!”

Only when her pretenses had melted away did she see the grace of God extended to her. Jesus made a way for her to receive her miracle even though it was not yet time for the Gentiles to receive His blessings. He told her, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.”

Many people might be offended at being called a “dog”. Actually, the Greek word used here by Jesus means “puppy”, and is thus an affectionate rather than offensive term. So this woman was not offended. In fact, she knew then that she could receive healing for her daughter because even puppies get to eat what falls from their masters’ table.

She saw that the crumbs under the Master’s table were enough for a Gentile, a “little dog”, like herself. You must understand that the Jews then considered Gentiles dogs. But what Jesus was trying to say was that He was called to the Jews first, not the Gentiles. Yet, He loved this Gentile woman and her daughter enough to provide a “loophole” for them to receive their miracle.

So when the Canaanite woman took her place by dropping the title “Son of David” and just leaned on Jesus’ compassion for her, her daughter was healed from that very hour.

If God was willing to extend His grace to a Gentile, how much more you, His beloved child! You do not need to depend on pretensions to receive a miracle from Him. Come as you are and lean on His grace. If He has delivered Jesus up for us, “how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things”? (Romans 8:32)

Be Established In God’s Righteousness.... Isaiah 54:14 14In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you.

Have you ever asked yourself why some Christians are constantly beset with overwhelming challenges, sicknesses and defeat if God’s promise, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper” (Isaiah 54:17), is true?

Well, this promise comes with a condition — “In righteousness you shall be established”. When you are established in righteousness, you will be far from oppression and terror, and not a single weapon formed against you will prosper!

This condition is not hard to meet. For a start, you already have righteousness! When you received Jesus as your Savior, you received the gift of righteousness which enables you to reign in life. (Romans 5:17) This righteousness does not come from you but the Lord. (Isaiah 54:17) And when you are established in His righteousness, no weapon formed against you will prosper.

But what does being established in righteousness mean? To be established in something is to have that something as your very foundation for security. So God wants you to know, be sure of and grow in the revelation that you are righteous by the blood of Jesus, by His perfect sacrifice at the cross.

When you feel as if you are in a storm, tossed here and there, and you begin to experience worry and fear, remind yourself of who you are in Christ. You are the righteousness of God in Christ and you have His righteousness!

As you do this, you will begin to notice the worry and fear slide off you, for when you are established in righteousness, “you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you”! That is why God wants you to be established in righteousness. He wants you to be free from fear, and far from oppression and terror.

So when the pressure is on, hold fast to the belief that you are the righteousness of God in Christ. That is where no weapon formed against you can prosper. As you keep believing and confessing your righteousness in Christ, revelation will break forth and you will experience the release of God’s miraculous provision, divine protection and blessings into your life!

1 John 4:18 18There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear…

Experts tell us that babies have two natural fears: the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. A study on fear was conducted on 500 adults of varying ages, backgrounds and lifestyles. The results showed that they shared some 7,000 different fears. This means that they must have learnt 6,998 fears since they were born. That is a lot of fears!

Actually, our bodies are designed for faith. Fear was foreign to man until Adam sinned against God. For the first time, Adam knew fear, and he hid from God and said, “I heard Your voice… I was afraid… I hid myself.” (Genesis 3:10)

Since then, man has been living in the realm of fear — fear of the future, fear of what others might say, fear of diseases, fear of flying… Actually, every fear is born out of the feeling of being cut off from God. If you think that God is still mad at you, that He is out to punish you, how can you have faith that everything will be all right? How can you have faith for your miracle?

But I have good news for you. There is a sure antidote to fear. The apostle John says that “perfect love casts out fear”. When you know that God so loves you that He gave His Son to take your beating so that you can take His blessings, you will stop fearing.

God so loves you that at the cross, Jesus was rejected so that you could become God’s beloved. It was not the nails that kept Jesus on the cross. It was His love for you. And if God did not withhold Jesus, why do you think that He will withhold healing, finances or a blessed marriage from you? (Romans 8:32)

Today, when you hear His voice, you will hear Him say, “You are My beloved child, in you I am well pleased.” And you don’t have to hide but you can run to Him without fear because He is not out to punish you. He is out to protect, prosper and provide for you, so fear not!

Receive As You Hear The Good News

Romans 1:16
16For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes…

If you have been to motivational seminars, you would probably have heard the speakers say, “If you follow these five steps, then you will come to a place of financial increase.” They would probably have told you also that if you don’t succeed, it is because you did not follow the steps correctly or diligently.

Thank God that the gospel or good news does not work like that! The minute you hear or read the good news, and you believe and receive it, His Word goes forth to sozo (the Greek word for “save”) you, making you well, prosperous and whole, “for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes”.

What is the good news? It is that God loves us so much that He gave us His Son to take our beating so that we can have His blessings without having to work for them. Right now, as you are reading this devotional, listening to a preacher or watching a sermon DVD, as you hear God’s Word, His power is released into your situation, working things out for you and turning your situation around for your good.

In Acts 14:8–10, we see Paul preaching the good news in Lystra. A man who was crippled from birth was listening to Paul. Paul, seeing that he had faith to be healed, said, “Stand up straight on your feet!” And the man leaped and walked! He heard the good news, believed it and was healed.
My friend, these miracles happen not because we follow some kind of formula faithfully, but because we hear the good news preached and simply believe it

Nothing Is Wrong With God, His Word And You!!! Song of Solomon 4:7 7You are all fair, my love, and there is no spot in you

Sometimes, when we don’t receive our healing, breakthrough, restoration or miracle child, we can’t help but think that something is wrong with us. We tell ourselves, “Nothing’s wrong with God, nothing’s wrong with the Word, so something must be wrong with me!” My friend, if you think that your miracle depends on you, then you are on shaky ground.

In the old covenant, we see this “it’s all up to me” demand put on man. God’s part was to bless His people, but only if they played their part by obeying all of His laws. If they didn’t do their part, not only would they not be blessed, but the curse would also come on them.

Most of the time, they ended up under the curse because they just could not keep all of God’s laws. So God found fault with that covenant because though He wanted to bless man, man’s sins made it difficult for Him to do so. Man himself was the weak link.

In the new covenant, man has no part to play except to believe and receive. The new covenant of grace was cut between God the Father and God the Son — both infallible and more than able to keep the covenant.

God the Son is man’s representative. Jesus represents you and me. So in this covenant, how much we can receive from God depends on how good our representative is, how perfect His obedience is. Of course, Jesus is the perfect Man with perfect obedience. So in Him, we are qualified to receive all the blessings of God! We only need to believe and receive.

Jesus’ blood has been shed for the remission of all your sins. You are now the righteousness of God in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:21) By His one perfect sacrifice, He has perfected you forever. (Hebrews 10:14, KJV) There is no spot in you!

Today, the devil has no right to tell you that you cannot be blessed because there is something wrong with you. So as you are waiting for your miracle, say, “Nothing’s wrong with God, nothing’s wrong with the Word and nothing’s wrong with me! I am going to receive my miracle!

Jesus beat him down over 2,000 years ago and raised us up and seated us in heavenly places in him... our fight of faith is to stay seated in his finished work and enjoy his COMPLETE victory... but the devil tries to get us anxious and full of care and worry... our fight of faith is our confident faith in Jesus finished work, knowing he will never leave us or forsake us AND if God be for you, who on earth could ever stand against you!!! so just relax, sit down (in Christ) and believe... Don't go down to the devil's level... He's beneath you and not worthy of too much of your time... Jesus conquered him and gave us the trophy... Let's enjoy JESUS!!! and let's enjoy LIFE!!!

We will be meeting this Thursday at the Rock Cafe in Paris at 6:30 pm if you have any questions or need directions place a comment on the blog... luv ya and see you at THE ROCK

1 Samuel 17:45 45Then David said to the Philistine, “… I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied

Ever wonder why two people can hear the same thing and yet have very different responses? For one, what is said makes him afraid and discouraged. For the other, his heart is so filled with faith that he dares to come against the devil and what he is doing.

In the Valley of Elah, Goliath the Philistine giant taunted the armies of Israel for 40 days. When David came on the scene, he heard the same mockings of Goliath that the rest of the Israelites heard. But somehow, those same words which caused fear in the soldiers angered David. What did David know or see that the others failed to see?

David knew that he had a covenant with God. Now, King Saul and all the soldiers with him that day also had the same covenant with God, but only David believed the covenant. And he acted on his belief. So God caused his giant to come tumbling down.

If David had such a great victory even though he was under the old covenant, how much more you and I who are under the new covenant! Today, God is asking, “Where are my Davids who will believe the new covenant?”

What is the new covenant? It is the covenant of grace. And grace means unmerited, undeserved, unearned favor. God wants us to know that He has cut this covenant with us through Christ our representative. And according to the covenant, we have His undeserved favor. We are blessed because Jesus took our beating. Because of what Jesus has done on the cross, we have victory over every giant.

Isn’t that good news? Today, God wants you to stand before your “giant” and declare that in spite of what you are going through, in spite of what is happening, you believe that God is for you because of what Jesus has done for you. And then, before your very eyes, you will see the giants of accusation, intimidation, condemnation, disease and debt fall flat before you!

                                                                      Justified

Adam and eve in the garden
Lovin on father God
Greatest of ease everyone's pleased
Fellowship flowin in the cool day breeze

Satan came in and stopped the wind
Adam and his daddy separated by sin

Father God said, satans head
Would be bruised by the womans seed
4,000 years later
Jesus did the deed
Jesus did the deed
Jesus made the devil bleed
Jesus did the deed

(chorus)
JUSTIFIED in the son of man
Justified in the blood of the lamb
Justified in this American land
Justified as the great I am

He became sin so we could be right
Now it's time to fight the good fight
On the cross the great exchange
But Christians live like nothings changed
Walkin in fear and so much shame
Like Christ never died and took the blame
Cowardly Christians walk the earth 
Like worms in the dirt
Don't you realize what your worth
Don't you know what he did
Don't you know what he paid
Jesus came and died 
So we don't have to live betrayed
Now were

(chorus)

The righteous are bold as lions
But the church has been slaughtered like lambs
Somebody wake up and realize they been born again
God is living in you
And he's freed you from sin
God is living in you 
And he's givin you the will to win

You gotta
Crown of righteousness on your head
And a breastplate of righteousness
On your chest
And a robe of righteousness on your back
Your suited up
Ready for attack
The gates of hell will not prevail
Your bringin down heaven to shut down hell 
The word of God is flamin fresh from the lips of those that preach righteousness 

(chorus)

Faith is the fame of Gods sweet rest
I believe therefore I confess
I'm strong in the lord and the power of his might I walk with Christ in his glorious light
I'm righteous as God and my feet are shod with the gospel of peace

Satan your lease has been released 
Underneath my feet
You got no right to abide in this light
You got no right to abide in these lives
No right to abide

(chorus)

1 Corinthians 1:31 31… “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”

If someone asks you, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” you would probably tell him, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved,” wouldn’t you?

Well, a rich, young ruler asked Jesus the same question, but instead of telling him to believe in Him, Jesus gave him the law. (Mark 10:17–22)

Jesus saw that the young ruler lived his life taking pride in his ability to keep the law to earn salvation and the favor of God. But because of His love for the man, Jesus had to show him that those who live by the law must realize that their self-efforts cannot save them.

He therefore reminded him, “You know the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery… ‘Do not steal... ‘Honor your father and your mother.’” The young ruler showed that his trust was in his law-keeping when he replied, “Teacher, all these things I have kept from my youth.”

So Jesus had to tell him, “One thing you lack… sell whatever you have and give to the poor… and come… and follow Me.” When the young ruler heard that, he walked away sorrowful.

When we boast of having kept the law, it will always point out something we lack or have failed to obey. The law is so holy and perfect that if we don’t keep even one iota of it, it has no choice but to judge and curse us. (Galatians 3:10) That is what the law was designed to do.

God does not want us to boast in our abilities to keep the law. If we are to have confidence in anything at all, if we are to boast in anything at all, it is in the grace of God. Only His grace can completely keep, save, heal, deliver and bless us.

So let’s not boast in what we have done or are able to do, but boast in His grace for us — that He is our strength, health, favor, prosperity, wisdom, hope, salvation and glory. That is how we will see ourselves enjoying our inheritance of abundant life!

Daniel 9:24 24“Seventy weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness…

In Sunday, we hear a message that says, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ.” On Monday, we are still confessing, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ.” But come Wednesday or Thursday, we begin to confess our sins! Then, when Sunday comes, we get a fresh revelation of our righteousness in Christ and we start to confess our righteousness again. Why do we do that?

It cannot be that on Sunday, we are righteous. Then, a few days later, we become unrighteous because of sin, but are “re-righteoused” when Sunday comes again. No, our righteousness is an “everlasting righteousness”! Jesus has obtained “eternal redemption” for us. (Hebrews 9:12)

“But I have just sinned. How can I still be righteous?

My friend, it is not what you do that makes you righteous. It is what Christ has done at Calvary. Romans 5:19 says, “For as by one man’s [Adam] disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.” It is the obedience of one Man — Christ — and not your obedience, that has made you righteous!

God wants you established in what Christ has done. He wants you conscious of your everlasting righteousness in Christ. How do you do that? You can listen to anointed messages that remind you of your righteousness in Christ. And don’t just know it in your head. Speak it. Every morning, tell yourself, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ!” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

You don’t need a revelation of how sinful you are. You know it when you sin. The devil reminds you of your sins. Even your friends and loved ones sometimes point out your sins. What you need, instead, is a revelation of how forever righteous you are in God’s eyes, especially when you sin.

And when you are conscious of this gift of righteousness that is everlasting, you will reign in life! (Romans 5:17) You will reign over sin, bad habits, sicknesses, lack and everything that holds you back from a victorious life!

We will be meeting in Nicholasville tonight!!! If you'd like to know where send a comment and I'll let you know... :)

Ephesians 5:27 27that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.

Have you been to a worship service where you stood with your hands raised, ready to worship God, only to hear the worship leader say, “Before we worship God, let’s all search our hearts”? Then, as you search your heart, before long, you dig up something that you don’t like. The next thing you know, your hands are no longer raised and soon, you find yourself sitting down — you don’t feel good worshiping God any more.

My friend, I have good news for you. Come and worship Him as you are. Come into God’s presence Jesus-conscious, forgiveness-conscious and grace-conscious! Come into God’s presence bringing only Jesus the spotless Lamb of God as your offering.

Your worshiping God is like the times God’s people in the Old Testament brought their offerings to the priest. The priest examined the animal sacrifice to ensure that it was without blemish. The priest did not examine the sinner. If the animal was without blemish, God accepted the animal sacrifice as well as the offerer who brought the animal.

So when you come into God’s presence, don’t do any self-examination and be discouraged when you find faults in your life. God does not examine you. He sees you through the full value, and all the loveliness and acceptance of His Son. (Ephesians 1:6) He sees you holy and without blemish!

Remember the woman who was referred to as a sinner, possibly a prostitute? She went to the house of the Pharisee who was hosting Jesus and wiped Jesus’ feet with her hair. (Luke 7:36–50) That was her act of worship.

She came to Him as she was. Yes, she knew that she had sinned, but she worshiped Jesus first because of who He is. She was Jesus-conscious. Then, she heard Jesus say, “Your sins are forgiven.” (Luke 7:48) She received the forgiveness she needed from Him.

Whatever you need from the Savior, come to Him as you are. Worship Him for who He is and then you will hear Him say, “Go your way. Your restoration has come. Your prosperity is here. You are healed. You have been made whole!”

Never think that Jesus is basic and we need to move on to "deeper" things... 

Never think that Jesus is basic and we need to move on to "deeper" things... 
That's precisely why we've been so frustrated in our CHRISTianity... Nothing is "deeper" than Your savior and his love for you... Don't go "deeper" and start trying to earn what he has FREELY provided... People try to "move on" past Jesus and start establishing their own righteousness and they build religions rather than the kingdom of God... Yeah but Pastor Jeremiah we have to learn about the Holy Spirit... I totally agree but let's look at who the bible says the Holy Spirit is...

Galatians 4:4
4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the SPIRIT OF HIS SON into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

The Holy Spirit is the spirit of Jesus!!! And he is sent to reveal Jesus to us in all his majesty, perfection and glory... So don't move on past Jesus into "deeper things" because the things your moving into might be "deep" but their not God... It's the simplicity of Christ folks let's not complicate it or dirty it up with a bunch of man made religion, no matter what form it might take.. . And their are many many forms... The question is, is it Christ centered or man centered... We think just because someone is hoopin, hollerin, praying in tongues and swinging from the chandelier it's revival and that is just not true... If its man centered and not Christ centered its religion... What do you mean by Christ centered Pastor Jeremiah? If its not based on Jesus and his finished work... If its all about what YOU are doing... The focus isn't on Jesus the focus is on you and thats when religion and pride begin to rear its ugly head... Christianity isn't about achieving something... Christianity is about receiving something that was already achieved 2,000 years ago on a cross...  We receive by simply believing in what Jesus did for us...And YOU and I cant earn the promises of God... They are a gift based on Jesus and his finished work... All we do is believe... Anything you add to that is religion... Yeah but we have a response ability to... You have a response ability to respond to his ability and not your own...This is not really about us its about him... And yes i know that frustrates our pride and our flesh because we want to earn it so we can brag about how awesome we are... And how we did this and we did that... No this Gospel is about Jesus and what he has done for us... We believe in what Jesus did and he gives it to us as a gift not a wage we earn because we racked up spiritual points... Only man could turn something as beautiful as a promise into a religious work... The bottom line is this you and I have a savior and he saves us... Not because we deserve it... Not because were super spiritual... Not because of anything we have done or will do... He saves us because HE is awesome... Not because WE are awesome... And his salvation includes health, wealth, protection, happiness, peace, joy, quality of life and yes heaven also... So keep your eyes on Jesus and enjoy life...  Our challenge is to believe that God is that good...There is nothing "deeper" than Jesus!!!
:)

let it snow baby... let it snow!!!


The declaration of Jesus always destroys religion... Religion is not anti-God but anti-christ... Religion always brings the focus unto what YOU are doing rather than what Jesus has DONE... Religion is man focused... True Christianity is Jesus focused... It's the difference between law and grace... The old covenant and the new... Revival and religion... Man stands at the center of religion... Jesus stands in the center of revival...

1 Corinthians 2:2 2For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified

The apostle Paul, in his letter to the Corinthian church, said that he determined to know nothing among them except “Jesus Christ and Him crucified”. In other words, Paul, who wrote two-thirds of the New Testament, had his mind full of Jesus and His finished work.

Beloved, God wants your mind full of the cross of Jesus. He wants you cross-conscious.

But what does it mean to be cross-conscious?

To be cross-conscious is to see Jesus, who loves you so much that He willingly died for you on the cross. To be cross-conscious is to look to Jesus, who offered His own body to be punished, so that your body can be free from all punishment.

To be cross-conscious is to fix your eyes on Jesus, who has provided for your deliverance and victory at the cross. At the cross, all your enemies were vanquished. All your diseases were destroyed. Your poverty was removed at the cross. Your sins were wiped out at the cross.

When the Israelites tasted bitterness in the waters of Marah, God showed Moses a tree, which he cast into the waters, making them sweet. (Exodus 15:23–26) The tree represents the cross, which turned the bitter waters sweet. Today, Calvary’s tree has turned your bitter situations sweet. Because of the cross, you can expect to see the bitter situations in your life made sweet!

When the Israelites were bitten by serpents in the wilderness, God told Moses to put a bronze serpent on a pole. The pole represents the cross and bronze speaks of judgment. Those who beheld the serpent on the pole lived because they saw their problem — the deadly serpent — nailed and put to death on the cross. (Numbers 21:6–9)

Today, you too will not die but live when you see all your sins judged at the cross, and with them, all your sicknesses, diseases, pains, failures and defeats! At the cross, all that is deadly in your life has been removed

The declaration of Jesus always destroys religion... Religion is not anti-God but anti-christ... Religion always brings the focus unto what YOU are doing rather than what Jesus has DONE... Religion is man focused... True Christianity is Jesus focused...

It's the difference between law and grace... The old covenant and the new... Revival and religion... Man stands at the center if religion... Jesus stands in the center of revival...

A simple song of Worship

I will wash my hands in innocence 

Your lovingkindness is before my eyes

Your goodness guides my mind

Holy are you God

Your mercy endures forever 

To you alone will I sing
To you alone will I lift my hands
To you alone I will bow down

You are the strength of my life

You are the reason I live

John 14:26 26But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things…

If you are asking whom or where you can go to to get the help you need, ask no more. Just turn to God who has already promised you the Helper, the Holy Spirit whom He has sent in Jesus’ name to dwell in you.

The Holy Spirit will teach you all things. Yes, teach you all things! Do you really believe that? Or are you like some who believe that you seek God’s counsel only for spiritual things, but consult “professional” help for all other things in your life?

God does not want you to run to and rely on worldly wisdom. Now, there is nothing wrong with going to a doctor or engaging a financial consultant, but God wants you to come to Him first for counsel and direction. That is why He has sent the Holy Spirit, the Counselor (John 16:7, NIV), to teach you all things. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth and He will guide you into all truth. (John 16:13)

The apostle John said, “But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things… the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things…” (1 John 2:20, 27)

So the way God teaches you is through the anointing within. It is a continuous anointing. In any particular situation, He is anointing you from within, teaching you by the presence or absence of His peace.

For example, a deal you are considering may sound very reasonable. But if you don’t have the peace in your spirit, don’t sign on the dotted line. Sign only when you have the peace. Be led by His peace and you will find that your heart will not be troubled, neither will it be afraid. (John 14:27)

When you follow that peace which only God can give to you as an inward witness, good things and even miracles will come forth!

The rock I stand on is greater than the ones thrown at me... :) LOL

2 Peter 1:2 2Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,

If you would like to walk in a greater measure of God’s favor, 2 Peter 1:2 says that grace, which is the undeserved favor of God, and peace, can be multiplied to you. Peace is the word “shalom” in Hebrew. Its definition includes wholeness, health and prosperity. So when you walk in divine favor and peace, you will walk in blessings in every area of your life!

But how do the undeserved favor and shalom of God increase in your life?

It is not by your laboring or toiling to earn it. The Bible says that it comes as your knowledge of Jesus and His finished work increases. It comes as you learn more about and believe that through Jesus’ one sacrifice at the cross, God removed all your sins, gave you His righteousness as a gift and put you in Christ to enjoy everything Jesus has. God’s favor is multiplied in your life when you simply believe that the favor of God that is on Christ is also on you because of what Jesus’ work at the cross has accomplished.

Today, you don’t have to struggle for favor. Just release it by speaking forth God’s Word in faith. On your way to work, say, “God’s favor surrounds me as with a shield.” (Psalm 5:12) As you continue to speak God’s favor over your life out of a revelation of Jesus’ finished work, you will see more of it being released.

When I first entered the workforce, I began to declare the favor of God in my job. Every time I was given a new assignment, I proclaimed that the divine favor of God was on me. The company began to prosper and I was blessed financially. By the time I left the company to serve God full-time, my income had increased so that I was in the top 15 per cent of earners in my age group in Singapore.

Today, in your workplace or at home, begin to declare the favor of God by faith. Expect to receive preferential treatment wherever you are. Say, “I am surrounded with the favor of God because of Jesus’ finished work. I have favor before God and man!” And see God’s favor work for you!

This requires no exposition (teaching) just read it

Mathew 23:1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: 3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. 4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, 6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. 8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. 9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. 10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. 11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. 13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. 14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. 16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! 17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? 18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. 19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? 20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. 21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. 22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon. 23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. 25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. 26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. 29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? 34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: 35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. 36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. 37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Isaiah 53:5 5… The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed

You know, one of the biggest outcries against Mel Gibson’s movie, The Passion Of The Christ, was that it was too violent, especially the part where Jesus was scourged.

Let me tell you this: It was not violent enough! The Bible says that at the cross, Jesus’ visage was marred beyond that of any man. (Isaiah 52:14) In the movie, even after all the beatings, the actor James Caviezel, who played Jesus, still looked quite handsome.

But the reality is that when Jesus hung on the cross, He had “no form or comeliness… there is no beauty that we should desire Him”. (Isaiah 53:2) He was beaten to a pulp until His face looked like jelly hanging out!

In the movie, when they scourged Him, only a small portion of His bones was exposed, so it was still quite tidy. But the messianic psalms say, “The plowers plowed on my back; they made their furrows long” (Psalm 129:3), and “I can count all My bones. They look and stare at Me”. (Psalm 22:17) All His bones were exposed!

My friend, He was thinking of you when the soldiers tied Him to the scourging post. As they raised their whips, He said, “Let it all come on Me!”

But what came on Him was not just the whip stripping the flesh off His bare back, but your sicknesses and diseases. Each time He was whipped, every form of sickness and disease, including arthritis, cancer, diabetes, bird flu and dengue fever, came upon Him. “The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.”

Today, healing is your right because Jesus has paid the price for your healing. So if the devil says, “You cannot be healed,” just declare, “Jesus has paid for my healing. Disease has no right to be in my body. I am healed in Jesus’ name!”

Every curse of sickness that was supposed to fall on you fell on Jesus instead. He bore every one of those stripes, so that you can walk in divine health all the days of your life. The price has been paid so that you can rise up and get out of your bed of affliction

2 Corinthians 3:17 17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

There is nothing quite like being free... I spent a good portion of my life in bondage to sex, drugs and alcohol... And then I spent another portion of my life in bondage to pleasing people... I will spend the rest of my life knowing that Father God is pleased with me because of Jesus and his finished work on the cross... Where the spirit is Lord there is liberty... And no where else... There is nothing quite as beautiful as just being free... Today I am free from drugs, alcohol and sexual addiction... I'm free from sin and condemnation... And maybe the most freeing thing of all... I'm free from...
what people think about me... If the judge of all the earth has approved me and loves me... The who cares what anybody says or thinks... I just laugh as I write this... Lol :)
You can't seek to please man and truly serve God... But the most amazing thing about all this wonderful liberty is this... Jesus has set me free but my love for him has turned me into a bond slave... I serve with all my heart not because I have to but because I WANT to... Now that is freedom!!!! :) I love it lol

let it snow.... let it snow!!!

it's almost sermon time baby!!!!

Matthew 27:46 46And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”

Do you know that it was at the cross that Jesus addressed His Father as “God” for the first time? He had always addressed His Father as “Father”. But at Calvary’s tree, He addressed His Father as “God”.

Jesus lost that Father-Son relationship when He was representing you and carrying your sins at the cross so that today, you can call God “Abba! Father!” (Romans 8:15) and have a loving father-son relationship with God forever. Jesus was forsaken by God and His world became very dark on that lonely hill so that in your darkest hour, God will always say to you, “I will never leave you nor forsake you!” (Hebrews 13:5)

At the time when Jesus needed God most, God turned His back on Him. God had to turn His back on His Son because His eyes are too holy to behold all the sin that was in His Son’s body. And because God turned His back on Jesus, He will never turn His back on you. Instead, you will see God’s face of favor shining on you all the time!

Jesus also took your place of no protection at the cross. For the first time, He gave up divine protection so that you can have it every day of your life! And because He became sin, He took your curse at the cross so that today, as you take His gift of righteousness, you receive only blessings from God.

Jesus received the full brunt of God’s wrath in His body once and for all when He carried your sins. All of God’s anger and condemnation fell on Him, consuming all your sins until God’s wrath was exhausted.

Today, God is not angry with you. The body of Jesus absorbed everything — your sins, curses, and God’s anger and condemnation. So live life expecting to see not the judgment, but the goodness and blessings of God

Church as we know it, is preventing church as God wants it.

Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace... Grace is not God overlooking sin Grace is God killing sin!!!

Hebrews 12:2 2looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith...

If you are sick, you must know that you are already healed because of the finished work of Christ. Don’t ask, “Do I have enough faith to be healed? Do I have the right kind of faith to be healed? What if I am lacking in faith?” You are focusing on yourself and your faith, instead of Christ and His finished work.

You should be asking, “Did Jesus take away this sickness? If He did, then He must have done a perfect work.” In other words, fix your eyes on Jesus and His perfect work.

AB Simpson, who lived in the 19th century, wrote an article entitled Himself. In it, he mentioned his exhausted nervous system, and broken-down heart which could have proved fatal any time. So he sought the Lord for healing. God showed him Matthew 8:17, which says that Jesus “Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses”.

AB Simpson said that though he believed that Jesus had borne away his sicknesses, he saw many hindrances which stood between him and his healing. And they all boiled down to one thing — his preoccupation with his faith! He had believed that if only he had the “right” kind of faith, he would receive his healing instantly.

He eventually came to the realization that he had to remove that last hindrance — his focus on his faith — and just rest in the finished work of Christ. That revelation marked his complete recovery from his sicknesses.

When you ask yourself, “Do I have enough faith?” you have already put faith as a hindrance between you and Jesus’ finished work. The more you focus on your faith, the more faith slips away. But if you focus on the finished work of Christ and see God’s grace toward you, God sees that as faith! Without realizing it, faith is there in your heart to believe that you will not die of what Christ Himself has already borne away completely for you, and you will see your miracle manifest

We will be posting audio sermons very soon :)

Let your heart be established with grace

God does not want your heart full of worries and fears, tossed and turned by every challenge that comes your way. He wants your heart at rest and established by His grace toward you.

But when you think that the breakthroughs to your challenges depend on your ability to obey God, then your heart will not be at rest. It will be full of worries and anxieties. Why? Because you can never obey God perfectly.

But when you depend on God’s grace, that is, His undeserved, unmerited favor, the opposite happens — your heart becomes established. When you know that the only thing that qualifies you to receive God’s blessings is faith in the finished work of Christ, your heart becomes established. Then, you will walk without the fear of your troubles swallowing you up. You will walk with full assurance that His blessings will be manifested in your life.

My friend, God wants your heart established, knowing that His righteousness, healing, protection and prosperity are yours — all paid for by Jesus’ finished work at the cross. God’s blessings are sure in your life because they are not dependent on your ability to keep His laws, but Jesus’ perfect obedience.

You see, under the old covenant, you receive God’s blessings only if you keep all His laws. (Deuteronomy 28:1–2) If you sin and fail to keep even one law, you will be disqualified from receiving His blessings. But today, under the new covenant, your sins no longer disqualify you because God Himself has said, “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” (Hebrews 8:12)

So let your heart be established by God’s grace. Because of His grace, you have full access to His blessings. You no longer have to worry about whether you are good enough. You can stand firm on the promises made in His Word and enjoy His blessings today because Jesus has paid the price. Your part is only to believe and receive!

Religion, cold and hard... Full of bible facts without the knowledge of God...the people cold and lifeless like old rocks on a mountain top... But beneath the surface of dead religion... revival fires burn hot... The next move of God so pregnant and about to pop... Suddenly an explosion and revival flames shoot up... Knocking religion rocks out of the way and out to the side... fresh lava flows... Burning down man's traditions and creating fresh new paths... revelation upon revelation... You can almost see JESUS' face... the old angry stones of religion attack the new move... With screams of blasphemy and fear of what's new... But revival burns hot without fear or apology straight through religious rock...... A beautiful exciting sight... New songs born and sung like beacons of salvation in a long cold religious night... But over time the lava cools and slows... Old man religion creeps into control.... Hot lava becomes cold dead stone... Denominations are born and titles are given... Money is made and man's pride is given... a front row seat .... in what has become a show with man in center stage... Jesus' is kept in the back neatly locked in a cage...old rocks of religion on a Cold mountain top... But beneath a fire is burning and ready to pop....

It's interesting how we as human beings think... Always wanting to identify ourselves with something... You can see these lines drawn quite clearly in the teenage years... You have the jocks that identify themselves with sports... The smart people identifying themselves with their intelligence... The partiers identifying themselves with partying... Its the natural tendency of man to want to Identify with something that separates and gives you distinction from other people... The music, the clothes, the interests... As we all know these lines are drawn quite clear in the teenage years as young people try and grasp who they are, what they believe and what they think is cool and not cool... As we get older the lines aren't quite as clear but the drive is the same... Every since Adam and Eve lost their identity in the garden mankind has been searching for their identity and some "fig leaves" ever since... Now as Christians these same desires remain...Now what Father God wants to do is give us a beautiful identity in JESUS...Its sad in Christianity we have been called to identify with our precious Lord and savior JESUS but we tend to identify with a revalation or spiritual principal instead of Jesus... Let me give you an example... Every denomination that is in the earth today, all centers around a revelation... Now don't get me wrong God loves revelation ... Everytime we have had a revival it has been birthed by a revelation... God reveals a part of himself that is not presently understood... For example Martin Luther and "The just shall live by faith" that one revelation of God's word transformed the entire church world wide... Some embraced it and most attacked it, but it was truth and it radically changed everything.., each denomination was birthed in a revival and grew cold as those involved chose to identify with that revelation and stop growing with God... Being a Christian is about having a dynamic, living relationship, that grows and changes as we know God more and more... But what happens is we get comfortable with the part of God we know and we refuse to see other aspects of who he is and what he wants to do in the earth...and it is at that point that we become religious and stop growing.., we seek the comfort of the old and Familiar and refuse to move on with God... Look folks JESUS is alive and he's not in a box... How many of you know you can have a friend for years and years and suddenly find out something about them you never knew or a part of their life you've never experienced... How much more God!!! But whatever he is revealing of himself will ALWAYS line up with his word...Now as God reveals himself through revelation knowledge he wants us to build on the foundations that have already been laid... And not to attack and disrespect them... We have to honor those that have labored before us... We stand on their shoulders... But we must be ready to embrace the new as the spirit of God reveals it in his word... And not be afraid when the old move attacks the new... Were not called to attack people but to declare truth... When truth is declared what is error is revealed... We build on former foundations but we tear down what was born of man..."New wine in new wine skins" stand firm and move forward as God reveals more of who he is and what he wants to do in THIS generation!!! A fresh fire burns and is exploding all over the earth!!! His name is JESUS!!!!
