DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PEACE AND POWER

IN ACTS 1:4 JESUS COMMANDED THE APOSTLES NOT TO DEPART FROM JERUSALEM, BUT TO WAIT FOR THE PROMISE OF THE FATHER, VERSE 8 SAYS "BUT YOU SHALL RECEIVE POWER WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS COME UPON YOU; AND YOU WILL BE WITNESSES TO ME IN JERUSALEM, AND IN ALL JUDEA AND SAMARIA, AND TO THE END OF THE EARTH." I believe that power comes from a place of peace , rest and a willingness to become yielded to God. As I study scripture, the disciples were born again before Pentecost, and had a measure of the Holy Spirit. So they had peace of their sins forgiven and justification, but they still didn't have the infusion of power that was promised. I believe, as Charles Finney and many others, that people rest in conversion and do not keep seeking until they grab hold of the power from on high! So there is no power, with God or with man. While still clinging to a hope in Jesus Christ, they enter into teaching or into ministry. They are overlooking the waiting until clothed with the power from Heaven. BUT if one brings ALL the tithes & offerings into GOD'S treasury, if he lays ALL on the altar, he will find "open the windows of heaven, and pour out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it" Malachi 3:10

PROPHETIC WORD FOR 2020

In this new new season, which began in September and is being reinforced now, we, as the body of Christ, need to know when to speak and when not to speak. To know when to open our mouth and to know when to keep it shut. We need to see and understand what we see before we begin to release it into the atmospheres! We need to become more intimate with Holy Spirit and seek, ask & knock about when, where,. who and how we release it! I believe this season our vision will be increased in clarity and in focus. Many will have this insight and God will confirm what He is saying through the prophetic!                                                                                                                                                     There will also be a supernatural increase like  we have never experienced before! Matthew 17:20 Jesus reveals that by applying our faith "nothing will be impossible for you." Faith is believing, believing is faith. I believe there is an in

HOLINESS

Leviticus 19:2 states "Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them:You shall be holy for the Lord your God am holy." Qadosh is the Hebrew word for holy. It means set apart, sacred, clean, morally or ceremonially pure. Holiness is separation from everything profane and defiling; and at the same time, it is dedication to everything holy and pure. He (God) is called Qadosh, "the Holy One of Israel." Thus verse 19:2 can say, "you shall be qedoshjim [holy ones] for I...am holy."                                                                                                                                                  Be holy; Don't DO holy! Become a living arc of His Presence, one that displays His fruit and shares His gifts. "Be holy as I am holy." Love without holiness is earthly: holiness without love is lofty and external! Love and holiness must be married. It is the heart that makes us holy; not the rules we f

COVENANT OF MULTIPLICATION

And I will make my covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly. Genesis 17:2... God made a number of covenants in the Old Testament and then concluded them all in Jesus Christ. The most well known of these covenants were with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses and David. The verse above refers to the covenant made with Abraham. God promises He will multiply the blessings with the ones He is in covenant with. God multiplied Abraham, Issac and Jacob. He gave them the bounty and the Promised Land. He blessed those who blessed them and cursed those who cursed them. According to the history of the Bible and the testimony of the book of Jasher, the lineage of Abraham, Issac and Jacob were greatly feared among the nations because of the blessings of God that were on them. Our expectation and faith in what God will do for us is dependent upon knowing the promise of the covenant He has made with us. Galatians 3:14 states that the covenant blessing of Abraham is for us in the new cove
