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.
