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

EAT THIS BREAD,.....LIVE

 In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.

BECOME WHAT YOU BELIEVE

"As Jesus left the house, He was followed by two blind men crying out,`Mercy, Son of David! Mercy on us!' When Jesus got home, the blind men went in with Him. Jesus said to them,`Do you really believe I can do this?' They said, `Why, yes, Master!' He touched their eyes and said, `Become what you believe.' It happened. They saw." Matthew 9:27-30(The Message Bible) In this scripture, Jesus says, "Become what you believe." So, what are we believing? Our belief has enormous power. When the men said,"Lord, we want our eyesight," Jesus touched them and released the anointing, the dunamis power, to transform them according to their belief! What do you believe? Come in alignment with what He says, because you are becoming what you believe! If you see yourself as God sees you, it doesn't matter what other things are going on, or what other people are saying. In Philippians 1:6 it states that He who has begun a good work in you is faithful to ful

SPIRIT PRAYER

When you don't know what to pray...Pray in the Spirit. Have you ever wondered what happens in heaven when you pray in the Spirit? When you pray in the Spirit, the smoke of incense fills the throne room of God. "Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. And he was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints,ascended before God from the angel's hand." Revelation 8:3-4. In the tabernacle Moses was instructed to build was an altar used in free will offerings. There is an golden altar before the throne in heaven(on earth as it IS in heaven). When we pray in the Spirit we activate that incense being burned in front of the throne. God really likes the incense. It creates a fragrance that God loves to smell, it's our Spirit prayer!!! When we pray in the Spirit, it is by our will. We present it wit
