 While reading Proverbs 23 and came to verse 23,  "Embrace the truth and hold it close..."I discovered that the word "truth" has several meanings in Hebrew. Truth means literally "give birth to truth" or "possess the truth" Truth is also used for God as the Creator! Jesus is the the Way, the TRUTH and the Life! I learned this from Wade Taylor's teachings, "truth is always costly and the result may not be seen, but to choose less, in the long run is much more costly." Jesus could only say "I am the truth." because He put the will of His Father ahead of His own comfort and satisfaction. There is no easy formula to success, because there is always a price! When we choose the purpose of the Lord, we are "embracing the Truth"... In doing this we are paying the price! Many are called, but few are willing to pay the price to embrace the truth... May we ALL be willing!!!!!!!


 Few comprehend or understand a visionary. A visionary may not accomplish much because he looks past the present and sees the future as being a present reality! Therefore he is unable to relate or function in the present. A practical person may not accomplish much either, as they get lost easily in the details and doesn't get the bigger picture! So, if a practical person and a visionary can come together in a tight relationship, much can be done to have a lasting reality! In order to accomplish the "greater works" described in John 14:12 we need to pray "Lord what do I say or do at the present "now" time that is your desire?" Then we wait for a now "present" word from the Lord! In Exodus 3:10 ,Yehweh is saying to us "come NOW, and I will send you..." So, in the realm of the Spirit, in the supernatural realm of Yehweh, Eternity is NOW...Yesterday is NOW... Tomorrow is NOW...Today is NOW... So what time is it? NOW is the time for grea


 "My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the source of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water." (Jeremiah 2:13)     When you are thirsty, you look for something to satisfy that thirst. The best thing is cool clear water, the most satisfying to our body. However Jeremiah is talking of the living water we need to revive our dry & weary soul! In John 4 we read of the Samaritan woman drawing water from the well. We also see Yeshua, the source of living water, standing beside the well. She can get the water to physically quench her thirst but she has a thirsty soul and a dry heart... that the water from that well cannot help. Yeshua's words touched the parched areas of her life and she opened up to receive His Living Water! Jesus has many names, but the one in Jeremiah is "the source of living water." We as believers who carry the Spirit of God in us must walk in the Kingdom reality that many we co


 "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For it is always he who asks that receives, he who seeks finds, and he who knocks that has the door opened to him."Matthew 7:7           In our daily time of prayer & worship, which flows from deep within us, it's not the QUANITY of time we spend but rather the QUALITY of this time that is important! Each of these main words in this verse; Ask, Seek, and Knock have a seperate and different result. Ask and IT will be given. This IT is that for which we are asking. IT will be given to the one who asks. We can trust the Lord to rightly respond to our asking. This asking must be according to the will of the Lord, which we will learn as we spend (trade) the QUALITY time in His presence. Faith comes the more we know Him. Then confidently we know we receive when we ask!  Seeking goes beyond our asking to receive...Seeking is discovering as we know Him better as a person. I


 To think & believe that heaven is for only when we die, we are missing the "more" of what God has planned for our lives. Heaven was never intended to be the goal of our walk with Him! It is included as part of our inheritance. 2 Corinthians 5:1 states "For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens."(This earthly body is like a fragile tent in contrast to our future body, which is called a building.) There is so much more we can experience, beyond our being saved, healed, set free, and filled with Holy Spirit. This experience is an intimate personal relationship with Yeshua. The MORE is substance of great value. We choose to make Him lord of our life!!! I learned from the teachings of Wade Taylor that salvation is ; I have received Him as Savior and now can declare "I have Jesus" The Kingdom reality is that now "Jesus has me" and from this momen


 We have been APPREHENDED by the Lord. He looks at us the same as the ones who received the talents, to see how they would respond. He is looking at us to see how we respond! The world looks for natural talents and abilities, but the Lord's view looks to our supernatural abilities and our desire to know Him! We need to seek the the purpose that Yeshua had in mind when he "apprehended" us. Moreover, we need to get over our past, our defeats and victories, and reach forward to what is ahead, the most exciting time of history! To see with our own eyes what He apprehended for us ...citizenship in heaven, transformed and transfigured forever with Him!  We have within us the desire to be "apprehended" for the purpose He has for us when He touched our spirit. We have to believe this and begin to earnestly seek the results for which we ARE "apprehended"! Then in that day we will hear, "well done my good and faithful servant"! "Brethren, I do not


 "Manifest your kingdom realm, and cause your every purpose to be fulfilled on earth, just as it is in heaven" Matt 6:10 (The Passion). "Your Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven" the "OLD" way of thinking, God administers from His throne  while we just obey here on earth. BUT,  in the "NEW", God has chosen us to manifest His Kingdom here on earth, having given us dominion and authority over the whole created order! Reading in Ephesians 2:6 "He raised us up with Christ the exalted One, and we ascended with Him into the glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are NOW co-seated as one with Christ!" If we are seated with Christ ,(and we are) we are seated on thrones from which WE administer in heaven. We live in two realms, so as we mature and manifest as His sons, we will fulfill our destiny and restore creation! HALLELUJAH!!! 


 There are many types of love... Here are five God highlighted to me. He showed them through scripture in a distinct order. Here they are as He showed me.  #1) LOVE THE LORD ...This is the first commandment. "You will love the Lord with all your heart with all your soul and with all your might." (Deut 6:5). Since it is the first, it is very important. #2) LOVE THE NEIGHBOR... "You will love your neighbor as yourself" (Lev 19:18.) This is also very obviously important as this is alo a commandment. #3) LOVE THE FOREIGNER... "The foreigner that is living with you will be to you as a citzen among you; and you will love him as yourself; for you were foreigners in the land of Egypt. I am Yaweh your God."(Lev 19:18) This commandment deals with us on a racial discrimination and ethnic pride level... There are no excuses. We are to love ALL people no matter their background...or yours! #4) LOVE YOUR ENEMY...This commandment Jesus pushed to the extreme. We are to lo

The Widow and the Judge

 Jesus is found over twenty times in the Gospels praying or teaching about prayer. This one from Luke 18: 1-5...We all know this story of the widow and the judge. It begins 'that men always ought to pray and not lose heart' ... The lessons to learn from this scripture... Number 1: JUST DO IT ...We "ought to pray" We have to just do it. Put it into practice. We learn by doing! Number 2: PRAY ALWAYS... It's correct to pray "always"- at all times; for all things; and in any situation. Prayer opens the door for positive spiritual influence and results! Number 3: LEGAL DEMANDS... Praying is like a lawyer making legal demands before a judge. God is a good judge. The picture of a judge who "doesn't care" is to encourage us to make strong demands, NOT that God is uncaring! Number 4: OVERCOME EVIL... There is conscious evil in the world. We have to overcome our "adversary" during prayer. There is demonic resistance to our prayers. We pray


 Hebrews 11:1 states this "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Everything in the spirit world is spiritual substance. It is real! Believing is not faith, faith is not believing. They work together...Believing writes the check, faith cashes it! Believing is a noun. Faith is a verb and a verb is an act! Romans 10:9-10 refers to believing in your heart and confessing with your mouth. With the heart a man believes. When you believe in your heart you must act upon it for it to become faith. Believing is a silent force, but faith is a vocal expression of what you believe! The Faith Dimension is the language of the spirit! Faith is what sets all other spiritual laws in motion! Faith gives hope substance! Faith calls it done...NOW!          


 We are NOT in a season to hide, to be silent, to run away or to put off what you are supposed to be doing! This IS a season to step up and into ALL Yehweh has called you to be and ALL He has called you do! We cannot have a plan "B" or a back up plan. We need to be "ALL IN". As we move forward we can't focus on what other people are saying and doing or we will miss what Yehweh is saying and doing! I feel a profound release of Spirit of the Fear of the Lord in this season. I sense the angel Winds of Change is blowing change into our atmospheres. I feel what worked before won't work now... we want to jump into the change, NOW. Don't remain silent, release and declare the Word of the Lord that is in you! Breakthrough and restoration awaits the bold and courageous! ......Read Isaiah 54:11-17.... It is time!


 The King of the Kingdom of Heaven dwells in each follower of Yeshua. May His Kingdom come and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We pray that Yeshua, the King of Kings, son of the most high God, come and bring His Kingdom so that peace and justice will reign. "For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of rightousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit." (Romans 14:17) That is what is missing from the hearts of man throughout the earth. That's what mankind really yearns for earthly kingdoms to provide. We need to come together in agreement as we pray for our government to come in accordance with Paul's instructions in 1 Timothy 2:1-2, "...I'm writing to encourage you pray with gratitude to God. Pray for all men with all forms of prayers and requests as you intercede with intense passion. And pray for every political leader and representative, so we would be able to live tranquil, undisturbed lives, as we worship the awe-insp


 "PRAYER"                                                                                                                                                        "So Jesus taught them this prayer; Our heavenly Father, may the glory of your name be the center on which our life turns. May your Holy Spirit come upon us and cleanse us. Manifest your kingdom on earth. And give us our needed bread for the coming day." Luke 11:2-3. TPT. When we focus on ourselves, our needs, our rights,our desires and plans, life becomes a prison of loneliness, sadness and emptiness. Prayer removes us from this prison and reminds us of God's healing, liberating and saving action in our lives. It reminds us of what He did for us to pave our way to life and freedom. PRAYER BRINGS US BACK HOME. Let's all be people of prayer, prayer warriors, close to God and living out His kingdom! Amen.                                


 SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: Luke 22: 39-46 and Matthew 26: 36-43....While reading these scripture passages, my thoughts turned to what I was taught in Sunday School when I was a child. My understanding about what happened with Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane when He asked the Father to take the "cup of suffering" from Him, I believed Jesus was asking for the cross sacrifice to be taken away. But on closer examination Jesus was actually asking not to die in the garden so that He could fulfill His destiny on the cross! Jesus realized that the blood that dripped in the garden would not redeem. The answered prayer in the garden fulfilled ALL that was written of Him. This made Jesus the perfect redemption! He filled the letter of the law and the prophetic of Him carrying the cross to His physical death. God answered Jesus' prayer in the garden so He could be our sacrifice for sin on the cross! It truly is a perfect redemption!
