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 follow, or the things we wear, He wants us to quit striving, doing the things He has already done for us. "It Is Finished" says it all. Holy--unholy, Clean--unclean, We all need to KNOW the difference!     Romans 11:16 says "For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches." Verse 36 reads "For out of Him , the sustainer of everything, came everything, and NOW everything finds fulfillment in Him. May all praise & honor be given to Him forever! Amen!!

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

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
