RIGHTEOUSNESS

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith, as it is written, "The just shall live by faith." Rom 1:16-17. nkjv. While studying this scripture this one word, righteousness, called to me to look deeper. The Greek meaning (dikaiosune) is to do justice,make just, That God declares the believer righteous in the sense of acquitting him, imparting righteousness to him. I believe that through Christ we get to put on this garment of righteousness as we apply the blood of Christ in all the areas of our life. The key of communion is an important way to keep this activated! But looking in the Hebrew translation, where we all must go to get the true meaning of what the bible is saying, this word "righteous" translates (tsadaq) to be righteous, a pronouncement of innocence. Deeper still we find the word tsadaqah which translates righteousness revealed, which is generosity. When we as the "church" start demonstrating this righteousness, "tsadaqah" the world Will see that we really do have the answer, Jesus Christ!!! Who has been so generous with us. Oh by the way, we get a crown to cast at His feet in the process! 2Timothy 4:8

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
