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

NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS

IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t

Disposition of Messiah

Exodus 34:6 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, "The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering , and abounding in goodness and truth... In this verse IS the disposition of Messiah. The early church used this important verse to judge prophecy and conduct in the church atmosphere. There were three elders who were in charge of hearing and deciding if what was said and done in that time was in the disposition of Messiah. In this very shaky and explosive time we are living in (exciting & wonderful time I might add) it would serve us well if we would write this verse on the tablet of our heart and in every circumstance, situation we find ourselves apply it rightly and justly. By doing this, we, as the body of Christ, will start looking like the "church" the public has never seen!!!

EMBRACE LADY WISDOM

"She's the very Tree of Life to those who embrace her. Hold her tight-and be blessed!" Proverbs 3:18(TheMessage) Our inheritance from Abba includes the gift of wisdom, which will restore to us what was lost through the fall. When Adam & Eve sinned they were expelled from Paradise so they wouldn't eat from the Tree of Life & live forever in their sin. Then He placed a huge fiery revolving sword and stationed a angel to guard the entrance. The good news is through the victory of Yeshua at the cross and the resurrection, the angel and the sword have been removed and we are free to eat from the Tree of Life! In the spirit of wisdom and understanding we grasp that to embrace her(wisdom), there is a cleaving to that opens our heart to understand that He(Yeshua) IS the source of all wisdom. When we cleave to Him we are embracing the Tree of Life, getting back what was lost! We are the Bride, the overcomers who remember their first love, the living flames of love who
