The Lord has made you go into a deep sleep. He has closed your eyes. (The PROPHETS are your eyes.) He has covered your heads.
(The seers are your heads.) Isaiah 29:10 (New Century Version)
You and I can be very glad we did not live in the time of Isaiah. The apostasy of Israel in those days caused God to make a terrible decision. Because Israel refused to accept the responsibility that went along with God’s grace, God had to take steps to chastise them. In this case, the… Continue

"...And they TOOK their daughters to them for wives,
And gave their daughters to their sons; and they served their gods....'
It’s a relational paradigm that is repeated over and over in Scripture. Idolatry is introduced into God’s family through sexual relations with outsiders. Time after time, we see that as soon as Israel begins… Continue

I got this letter from Pastor Matutis in Berlin today and I want to share it with all of you.
Today you get a very different Christmas greeting from me.
In my prayer for you, the Lord shows me, I shall send you
this picture. (See Appendix ) You need it.
Your plight is so big, you need help from the Lord himself.
Imagine this before, suddenly, someone stands at your door
and knocking… Continue

"For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins: Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity. And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins. And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron. So also Christ glorified not himself to… Continue

Foundations! MOVING ON!
“For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and… Continue

December 2nd 2008
How did you do that is a question that you should be asked over and over throughout your lifetime, if we are followers of Christ? When we are doing something that appears to have a certain amount of success attached to it, then people want to emulate it. Success in any God given endeavor is not based on secret information but personal information. The words spoken to us for our success work solely based on obedience and adherence to the directives… Continue

The Lord says, O Africa this is your season to arise and live again. Consider how that I took one of your sons and made him the head of the most powerful nation in the world. This I say to you is a prophetic sign of a new season in the earth and in you O Africa. I have heard the cry of the African. I have heard the cry of the nations of Africa that have cried out to me for compensation for their great loses. I am yet the Lord that hears the groans and cries of nations. I have not forgotten you… Continue

32 For the Gentiles (heathen) wish for and crave and diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all.
33 But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.
34 So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is… Continue

Today we cannot like things, it seems, without value or worth. Watch a important jewel without value is worthless right? I heard a brief example of the value of a jewel, a pearl that is, the value of it. The value and prestige of it will determine if it is worth purchasing. If you go through alot in life: hard times, ruff seasons, deaths, illnesses, poverty. It just seems like there is no breaking point. Listen this man said the pearl value goes up by how much dirt and how much it gets twisted… Continue

A Ridiculous Request?
Joshua 10:12 On the day the LORD gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the LORD in the presence of Israel: "Sun, stand still over Gibeon, and you, moon, over the Valley of Aijalon."
Recently in my Ladies Bible study, we read this scripture passage among others but this one left me in total awe of just how big our God is. I won’t go into the background of the request because it won’t be relevant to you or me today. What we see here is Joshua… Continue

But in your hearts set Christ apart as holy [and acknowledge Him] as Lord. Always be ready to give a logical defense to anyone who asks you to account for the hope that is in you, but do it courteously and respectfully (1 Pet 3:15) AMP
Can you be questioned? There is a spirit of pride that has risen up in the Body of Christ. For some reason, many of us feel we are “above“ being questioned. So many times, Jesus answered questions of those who followed Him, as well as… Continue

Dear Apostles, Prophets, and Key Ministers of the Kingdom,
I pray as you read this letter that you agree with my urgency in writing it. As I have been announcing to you, I am coming up on my seventh Apostolic Summit, to be held in Tulsa, OK, November 20-22, 2008. Many of you know over the years that I usually make one or two exhortative appeals about my annual summit to my peers and colleagues. This year, however, the Lord just won’t… Continue

Does not wisdom cry?
And understanding put forth her voice?
She stands in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.
She cries at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.
Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man.
Wisdom cries without; she utters her voice in the streets:
She cries in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the… Continue

Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.
God has blessed me with two children – an 8-year-old little boy and a 4-year-old little girl. My son looks like me and has my temperament, but my daughter is almost an exact reflection of me. She copies my every move, looks exactly like I did at her age, and acts at 4, just like me at 32 in many ways. She’s a well-behaved child, but very mature in her thinking. She’s literally like a mini-Joy… Continue
