entering the land

entering the land

Well are we ready ? the land of inheritance awaits us. Like Israel of old there came a day when just like God had told them they would enter the land of promise. It seemed like it took forever but it did come. Upon entering the land they thought ,finally we can enjoy what was ours by promise. Everything seemed to be set, the doubters were gone, the complainers were gone, the Nation has come to its beginning. A new leader, the old was gone the new was here. But there was a problem, hiding in the midst of the Nation was a tiny little seed in the heart of an individual, maybe he never even realized it was there. Remember Lucifer ,created in perfect beauty but one day , a little seed that was hidden in him sprouted , the word say pride was found in him. Well the same thing was hiding in the heart of a man of Israel. His name was Achan . This man like Lucifer thought he new better then God, and advised himself that what he was doing was good. Its just a garment, a little silver and a little gold. Surly God would understand. It reminds me today of people who think they can touch what is God’s , you know the ones who try to sway the sheep, or punish God by withholding what belongs to God. Just like Israel of old , when we try, God exposes them and they pay the consequences . It may not be like what happened to Achan and his family, but it shows up nevertheless. Maybe in the form of family turning from God, or relationships breaking down, funds drying up, troubles of different kinds. Oh don’t get me wrong I am not saying God is causing it, but I am saying your pride and your rebellion and dishonesty has a factor in it. You cant carry on thinking it will be ok, it wont until you repent and stop touching what is Gods. We think just like Achan we are doing good when in fact we are in sin. Just like then God is revealing the hearts of the all His people because He refuses to have half hearted followers, its all or nothing. Keep the faith we are going in.

moving from the shadows

moving from the shadows

So many today still want to live in the shadows of the old testament, but there must come a time in the life of every believer to come out of the shadows and start living in the realities. Knowing about Jesus is not enough, we must begin to know HIM. Not by the knowing of another mans revelation of Him, but by a personal experience that each individual has of Him. For to long we have lived by what others have told us, but now we must move to knowing for ourselves. Shadows are simply only an imperfect or faint representation of what is real, they are a small portion of the whole, they are things that do not have the full light of the real. For the time has come that the Bride must begin to be intimate with the Groom. Intimacy must come from a face to face relationship, with out encounter there is no intimacy. Many still want to live for Him without knowing Him. But the fact is knowing Him is living for Him. There is at this moment a transition taking place in the church, things will be outside the box of religion , by that I don’t mean weird and wacky but pure and holy. Church may not fit into our box anymore, because in Him there is no limits, you can’t have the God of your own making, for He wants to now make you in the Image of the Son. Jesus was among His own and they never knew Him because they had a different idea of Him, just like todays church. The real Jesus is about to be revealed to His Bride, so His Bride can truly reveal Him. My prayer is that we are ready and willing to let go of everything that has caused us to see Him only in a shadow and begin to see in the full light of who He is

new life

new life

It is interesting that before a baby is born there is always pain associated with it. This is similar to things being born of the spirit. As a church there are times we go through pain. And just like natural birth when it is all over growth and new birth come forth.  Although natural birth is because of a baby coming forth from the womb, spiritual birth is usually a lesson the forms the character of the church. Most pain in church is associated with people who take on offences, take on hurt, assume things that are not true, listen to lies , spread lies, believe lies, I mean just all out bitterness that consumes them to the point they react. But if the church stays in the right spirit when this happens there will be a birth, new birth, new life, that which held up the new life is gone and behold a baby is born. I have watched over 30 years not only our church but countless others go through the same thing. Some times things hinder growth and God in His wisdom removes what hinders. Does it hurt ? yes it hurts but the wound does heal for those who stay in the right attitude, for those who don’t they carry the hurt and offence wherever they go, until the next time .Yet God in His lovingkindness wants to heal them, but cannot heal the wounds ( by others or self made) because the wound is never cleaned out properly. It just festers and begins to consume more and more areas of their life . While the church moves on, they do not, they may move to a different place but the thing always shows up again. My prayer is that as a church we remain in a good heart attitude, release the pain and begin to enjoy the new life , let go of what was and hold on to the new. We always pray for the best in people and desire that all will be healed but that is not in our power, it is in theirs. forgiveness is a choice, and I pray we choose right. I am so looking forward to what God has planned for us, unto us a child is born , what was withheld can no longer be withheld. Once labour begins there is no stopping the birth.

Speed of sound

Speed of sound

I have begun to realize how relevant hearing is Isaiah 64:4 say hearing and listening has been a problem from the very beginning. And if you go back to the beginning and mans fall sure enough you will find out the thing the enemy works on first , you guessed it hearing ( hath God said) or are you sure you heard right? Sound travels at a speed , but that speed varies depending on two factors. One being temperature and the other density ( firmness). Is it possible that these two things also effect our spiritual hearing ? Let’s look at temperature Jesus told the church of Laodiceans if they were Luke warm He would spit them out, why maybe cause they were not listening, second firmness has to do with being solid , solid in what in the word. Many today are quick to speak before knowing the word of God, they think they heard God , when in fact they speak contrary to the word. So let’s get hot or on fire for God , and let’s study His word asking Holy Spirit to be our teacher then we will hear from heaven and be able to do great things all for the glory of God

Ready

Ready

I don’t know about you but I am ready for God to move in this hour. I have a longing to see what has never been seen, hear what has never been heard, and believe for what has never entered the heart of man. I am so tired of hearing about men , I want to hear about Jesus. He is the one who accomplished the work,He is the one who deserves the Glory. The church needs a eye opener, we need to quit trying to compare and compete. My cry is come Lord Jesus, come take Your bride away into the intimate place so at last she can be revealed in all Your glory. Remove our ideas and theology that keep us from being what You want.

God planted a garden

God planted a garden

Gen 2;8 tells us God planted a garden, Why? He had no need for a garden, but yet He planted one. The garden was for  the man whom He had created, it was a place of protection, a concealed place, a place where he was hedged in. But even greater it was a place of communion between God and the man, this communion was to help the man grow into the intended purpose for which he was created. Everything in God begins as seed form so the man was in the beginning stages of his development and needed a place to grow. The man and the women were one, called Adam. Male and female. As long as the women was concealed in the man they were both hedged in or protected, the minute the women is revealed the hedge is broken and the place of protection is compromised. Notice the first time the serpent shows himself is when the women is outside of the man. there is so much to teach on this matter and time will not permit me to do so now. Hopefully at a later date. The point is this the moment we want something now that is for a later time we have problems. Adam the Man should have been satisfied with just being with God ,but he desired another and with that desire opened up something before its time. If he would have allowed time to bring forth the full purpose of God he would have had what God intended. I know there is  a lot going through your mind right now, maybe just go to the video page and listen to the message on this matter. And at a later date I will speak more on this issue.
