DINNER INVITATION

In the passage of scripture that Luke described in chapter 14 as the "Great Supper", verse 15 says that one who heard what Jesus was teaching said "Someday God will have a kingdom feast and how blessed will be the ones who get to eat the best bread of the kingdom." This one was assuming the kingdom of God was coming one day, but what Jesus was teaching through this parable... that it had already begun with the invitation to come to Him, the King. In the rest of this passage it says a man invited many to come to a great supper he had prepared, just the same as the Lord invites us to come to His feast of life. Provision and our destiny can be found there, along with vision and strength. Even though they were invited, when everything was ready, all found excuses not to come. Some just didn't want to go, some I believe thought they were supposed to bring something to the party but felt embarrassed because of lack and declined the invitation.                                 We too are faced with this invitation today. God wants to do something supernatural in our life and we feel we should be providing something. It seems to take us a long time to get the revelation that this is a "come as you are" dinner. In Isaiah 55, the invitation is clear. The SUBSTANCE our soul desires and needs is gained by coming just as we are!                                   Jesus said in Luke 14:33, unless you surrender all to me, giving up all you possess, you cannot be my disciples. This does NOT mean you have to give away your house, empty your bank account or quit your job. What it does mean is you must give away your own thoughts of ever doing this in your own strength. We must choose to lose our self-reliance, say YES and  show up, just as we are, to His great banquet as an honored family member!

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
