We Stretch our Faith, oh God!

Greetings, watchmen all over the world. May the grace and peace increase magnificently in our lives, as we grow in the knowledge of our God and His Christ.

After a brief quietness, the word of the Lord has come to remind us all to keep a global mentality in our approach to prayer, and our decreeing and declaring the will of our God. He reminds us that the victory is already won; we will not be disappointed.

Our God has made us lords and kings under the rule of our Lord and King, Jesus The Christ . He desires to increase the realm of influence and rule for the faithful. He moves us from faith to faith, as He guides our prayer from praying for our needs and the needs of those close to us, into praying for our neighbors, our communities, our cities, states, nations, and then into praying for all nations around the world.

Our God desires to increase the realm of influence and rule for the faithful. He moves us from faith to faith, as He guides us from praying for our local household of faith, into praying for those in our communities, states, nations, then into praying for households of faith all over the world.

Our God has already determined that we win, completely. Victory is already ours in Jesus The Christ; Hallelujah!  We will not falter; we will not draw back.  We stand strong in our God’s immovable faith; He is trustworthy!

Isaiah 62:6-7 (AMPC) 6 I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, who will never hold their peace day or night; you who are His servants and by your prayers, put the Lord in remembrance of His promises, keep not silence, 7 And give Him no rest until He establishes Jerusalem and makes her a praise in the earth.

Watchmen all over the world, we must rest in full assurance that our God keeps His promises. He watches over His Word, spoken from a faith-filled heart, to exact its performance. If we continue to do well and refuse to faint in adversity, we will see the manifestation of all that we pray, in Jesus name. Let us purpose in our hearts to declare our God’s Truth and will, with His heart. The rest is up to Him. Hallelujah! We know we will not be disappointed, and we will not disappoint our God, in Jesus The Christ’s name!

Most Beloved Heavenly Father,
We, Your watchmen, Your manifested sons in Jesus The Christ, come before You, knowing You are Love, and have no respect of persons. We come before You, the Only Righteous, Sovereign Judge, knowing You are full of forgiveness and mercy, yet we know that You are just. We know that the Law of Reciprocity will not be dishonored. We do not fret over the wicked and their works; we know their end and their reward. We are not moved by what we feel, think, hear, or even see; we are anchored and moved only by Your Word and Holy Spirit of Love and Truth. We know we will not be disappointed, and we will not disappoint You, in Jesus The Christ’s name!

Covenant-keeping Father, we come before You with the revelation of the Gospel of Jesus The Christ, and the accomplishment of His shed blood. We know You see us through His blood; You have declared us blameless, accepted, protected, and provided for. We appreciate the authority and power of Your Truth and Holy Spirit to transform, conform, and restore us as Your offspring, as Your sons. We know we will not be disappointed, and we will not disappoint You, in Jesus The Christ’s name!

Father, we come before bearing Your image. We come before You full of Your faith and Truth; we come anointed with Your loving-kindness and sincere desire to see all humanity rescued and delivered. We come before You, following Your instruction to remind You of Your promises to believers, until we see Your Word accomplishing all that They (Scripture and Jesus The Christ) were sent to do. We know we will not be disappointed, and we will not disappoint You, in Jesus The Christ’s name!

Beloved Papa, we come before You as Your authorities in the earth; we come exercising the authority that You have vested in Christ Jesus. We come before You in agreement with Your Master Intercessors, Jesus and Your Holy Spirit; we come calling those things that You have said into existence. We come instructing the ministers of the heirs of Your salvation; we come directing the forces of darkness, commanding them to obey Your Word and will, Your way in Jesus The Christ’s name! We come full of the expectation to see these things manifested and established. We know we will not be disappointed, and we will not disappoint You, in Jesus The Christ’s name!

Sovereign, Holy One of Israel, as we decree and declare Your Word and will to the four winds, we know they work with us, filling the earth with the knowledge of Your will, Your plans, and purposes. We believe Your Word; every knee must bow, and every tongue confess in obedience to the name of Jesus The Christ, spoken in faith! We know we will not be disappointed, and we will not disappoint You, in Jesus The Christ’s name!

Father, we ask for revelation and greater understanding for the magnificent spiritual gifts and tools You have given us to work the greater works promised by Jesus The Christ. We thank You for pouring out Your Holy Spirit in us and through us, in measures never before experienced by humanity. We thank You for an exceeding, abundantly, above all that we can ask or think outpouring of Your Holy Spirit. We know we will not be disappointed, and we will not disappoint You, in Jesus The Christ’s name!

Dearest Ancient of Days, because we are asking in accordance with Your will, we are confidence that we have what we ask for. Therefore; watchmen all over the world are thanking You for REVIVAL! Thank You that souls are saved, bodies are healed, minds are regulated, relationships are mended, and everything stolen is returned, even seven-fold in Jesus name. Be it unto us as You have promised, Most-High God! We know we will not be disappointed, and we will not disappoint You, in Jesus The Christ’s name!

DO ALL THAT IS IN YOUR HEART!
WE WILL PRAISE YOU AND LIFT UP THE NAME OF JESUS!
Hallelujah and thank You; in Jesus name.
Amen and amen.

Continue to Fight the Good Fight of Faith

Lately, I have experienced spiritual warfare on a very personal level.   The Lord has taught me that such things come, just before breakthrough.  There have been attacks on my mind, my body, the ministry, and family members.  When I find myself in these seasons, I fight to keep my mind nestled in the loving and capable hands of our God.  This is the fight of faith, knowing the work we do, is getting the job done, according to the mind, will, authority, and power of our God! 

In these times, the Holy Spirit calls to my remembrance encouraging words He has spoken in the past.  He reminds me that nothing has changed and His heart towards all humanity is still Love.  The Word of our God tells me that others are passing through similar waters.  I share with you a Word from our God spoken to His watchmen about 7 years ago.  

BE ENCOURAGED; STAY IN THE FAITH FIGHT!

The Lord would have me to say the following things to His faithful watchmen.

Please hear His unchanging heart:

No, this is not all there is and your labor has not been in vain.  Continue to believe and trust that the seeds you have sown will produce the expected harvest.  The seeds of love, joy, peace, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, meekness, long-suffering, self-control and yes, even finances will all return the harvest promised.  Prepare for the Amos 9:13 anointing. The season is coming wherein you will see that what you need comes to you almost as quickly as you sow for it.  Remember, the harvest comes at the appropriate time, when you have need of it.  Only I truly know what you have need of. 

Prepare for the anointing. Heed my instruction; follow my strategies.  Examine your heart; repent of any attitude, thought, desire that is not of My character.  Examine the works of your hands, repent of any practice, behavior or incident that did not or will not meet My approval.  Examine your ways; pull out the debris, clear the bottlenecks.  Rebuke the enemy off of your inheritance.  Command that thief return what has been stolen.  When you have done these things, that which has always been yours will begin to flow to you.  Remember, after you have done My will, you have need of patience that you might receive the promise.  It will come.  

Above all else, always know that I love you and desire that you have hope and experience success.

Watchmen all over the world, we prove to be more than conquerors, as we fight from our place in Jesus The Christ.  Through Him, our God conquered every thing that the kingdom of darkness could create to use against us.  

BE ENCOURAGED; STAY IN THE FAITH FIGHT!

Have Faith in our God’s Love and His Work in Christ

Hebrews 12:1-4 (NLT) Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress. Let us run with endurance (its a process) the race that God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from start to finish; He was willing to die a shameful death on the cross because of the joy He knew would be His afterward. Now He is seated in the place of highest honor beside God’s throne in heaven. Think about all He endured when sinful people did such terrible things to Him, so that you don’t become weary and give up. After all, you have not yet given your lives in your struggle against sin.

Jesus overcame the struggles of the cross, because He had faith (knew and believed) the Love and Promises of our Heavenly Father. He took on the punishment for the sin of humanity; He paid the price with His shed blood. He yielded to death (separation from God the Father, who IS Life) so that we who believe, may forever remain connected to our God. This is The story of Love and redemption: our Heavenly Father allowed His only Begotten Son to pay a price we could not pay, to restore humanity to Himself (Jesus The Christ restored believers to our rightful place, position, or status in our Creator God).

We must choose to believe that Jesus died in humanities’ behalf, and accept the victory that He won for us as our own. We must we take Him at His Word, utilizing the graces, gifts, tools, wisdom that He teaches us to walk in. In doing so, we are positioned and equipped to overcome every lie and attack of the devil. We must allow our God’s Love, Word, and Holy Spirit power to separate us from sin, fear and shame, or anything that would keep us from enjoying the precious life that Jesus purchased for us with His shed blood and death. We are astronomically expensive, priceless to our God (I Corinthians 6:20); He loves us with height, depth, and width that we will not understand until we see Him. Think about it, our Heavenly Father believes we are worth the price He paid in Jesus His Christ.

Faith to be dead to sin
Faith to be alive to His Love

Galatians 2:17b-21 (NLT) I have been crucified with Christ. I myself no longer live, but Christ lives in me. So I live my life in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. I am not one of those who treats the grace of God as meaningless.

Grace is our God’s gift of loving help; He does for us what we cannot do for ourselves, because of His Love towards us. The law is also a gift to us, so that we might be made aware of our sin (Romans 7:7). We know that in and of ourselves, we are unable to keep the law. If we break one law, we are guilty of all the law. Being made aware of our sin, and inability to keep the law, we must repent and return to God, and His ways. He and His Christ are our only hope.

Our loving God provided the way back to His Life, Love, mercy, forgiveness, and grace, using the spiritual substance of faith in the work He performed in Jesus. We must recognize that our Heavenly Father allowed Jesus to suffer for the sin of all humanity so that we could be forgiven through His suffering (Isaiah 53). Give careful attention to Jesus The Christ and the work God did through Him at Calvary. It is there we find the ability to live our lives to the fullest. (Foundation Scriptures: Galatians 3:1-14; Romans 5)

The Just Shall Live by Faith
Our God works His Righteousness (right way of thinking, speaking, and behaving) into our lives, as we trust Him, His Word, and do as He instructs. This process is revealed in the Gospel, the Good News of Jesus The Christ. Jesus trusted our God’s Love, authority, and power to be and do that which was impossible for Him on His own (He, the Word of God, emptied out of His deity and live by the Word that proceeded from our Heavenly Father). This is the revelation that caused our Apostle Paul to declare:

Romans 1:16-17 (NKJV) 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

We have to trust our God’s Love, authority and power, as we walk through tests, trials, opposition (stress, fear, temptation to quit, stumbling, falling…). Our God promises to reveal Himself, to all who believe and honor His Word and Holy Spirit, with compliance to His will. He oversees His promises to bring them to pass in our lives. He promises to rescue, deliver, heal, restore, provide, … Hallelujah! He cannot lie; His promises (as revealed in Jesus The Christ) are “Yes and Amen!”

We Must Trust Our God with Our Present
Our God, the Heavenly Father is for us TODAY. He loves us TODAY. He reveals that part of His nature through Jesus, and His precious Holy Spirit.

Hebrews 13:8 (KJV) Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Psalms 42:1 (KJV) God is our refuge and strength, a very present(always here) help in trouble.

The priests of old entered into the Holy of Holies once a year for the sins of the people. Jesus is PRESENTLY seated at the right of the Father in heaven, always there to intercede for us. He understands the things we go through; He experienced life on earth, as a human. (Hebrews 9, Romans 4:14-16). WE MUST BELIEVE OUR GOD’S LOVE.

We must trust our God with our past

Matthew 10:29-31 (NLT) Not even a sparrow, worth only half a penny, can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. The very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to Him than a whole flock of sparrows.

Our God is concerned about our personal welfare (Psalm 23). We must believe God is able to take care of us, the same way He protected the first born of the Israelites from the angel of death by painting the blood over the doorposts. We have to use our words to paint the shed blood of Jesus over our lives and belongings, and trust God. Sometimes we are angry, or disappointed with God because of things that have happened to us or our loved ones in the past. Paul gave us so wonderful advice:

Philippians 3:12-14 (KJV) Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Sometimes we miss out on the wonderful things that God has in store for us by spending our thought life on things in the past. No matter what is in our past, or the past of others, Jesus Christ suffered and died that we all can be free. Our Heavenly Father’s predestined will and Word raised Him us to show all of creation His sovereignty. Now He has given us His Word (Scripture/Jesus) and His Holy Spirit to do to, for, and through us the things we cannot do for ourselves.  WE MUST BELIEVE OUR GOD’S LOVE.

We must trust our God with our futures
Undue concern about the future is worry.  We must trust God to bring us to victory, just as He displayed in Christ Jesus.

Psalms 37:5 (KJV) Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.

Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT) Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will direct your paths.

Proverbs 16:3 (NLT) Commit your work to the LORD, and then your plans will succeed.

We make be secure in our futures in our God and His Christ.  We make plans and pray.  We share the plans we make with our God, and let Him know we desire to do His will above all, and we are open and willing to do what He desires. We ask Him to make us sensitive to His leading.  We trust His Love and work in Christ, as He performs what He promises.  Our God is unchanging; He has always loved us and He always will.

Hebrews 77:24-25 (NLT) But Jesus remains a priest forever; His priesthood will never end. Therefore He is able, once and forever, to save (heal, deliver, set free, restore), everyone who comes to God through him. He lives forever to plead with God on their behalf.

We must cast all care on The God Who cared for Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT) Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

We must first talk to the One with the ability to solve our problems, and give us peace while we wait for change (in us or the situation). We must not feel guilty when we have peace, while everyone else is running around in drama. Our quiet spirit is evidence that we have entered into pure faith, pure rest in our God.

We are not alone in this fight!

I Peter 5: 7-9(NLT) Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about what happens to you. Be careful! Watch out for attacks from the Devil, your great enemy. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for some victim to devour. Take a firm stand against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters all over the world are going through the same kind of suffering you are.

SHOCKER!!!! The devil wants us to think we are the only ones going through what we are going through. We are not ignorant of his tricks and schemes! We pray for others, knowing they are struggling too. As we do, our God grants new strength and greater revelation to solve more problems!

Give Him all burdens, weights, and cares

Psalms 55:22(NLT) Give your burdens to the LORD, and He will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.

What is a burden? Something that weights your down. We find the promise that God has made that pertains to the struggle, then we do what we believe our God would have us do we, and roll all concern for the remainder over on our God, our Heavenly Father (Hebrews 12:1-2). We must trust Him to do what we, and others we have trusted in, have failed to do, even against all odds. He is our God of the impossible. WE MUST BELIEVE OUR GOD’S LOVE.

We have new DNA in Jesus The Christ!

II Corinthians 5:17 (KJV) says Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

Before we knew Christ we struggled endlessly with wickedness, now that we know that we have power over all wickedness, as we press in, following the Way of Jesus The Christ. Like Him, we are able to overcome the crosses we face in life by believing and obeying the Word of our God. The devil uses his weapon of deception, continually trying to convince us that we are not who the Word of God says we are, that we cannot do what the Word of God says we can do, and that we cannot have what the Word of God says we can have; he is The Liar.

Revelation 12:9-11 tells us that we overcome the deception of the devil by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, (which redeemed us from the penalty of sin), the word of our testimony (God’s Word in our hearts, spoken with our mouths), and not loving our lives unto death, (being willing to be as dead to our old ways and beliefs and alive to the Word of the Living God.) We must purpose in our hearts to continually cast away all shame, fear and guilt, and doubt. WE MUST BELIEVE OUR GOD’S LOVE.

Our God’s Love Speaks to Us!

Jeremiah 29:11-14(NLT) For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for Me in earnest, you will find Me when you seek me. I will be found by you,” says the LORD. “I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes.

Let our hearts reply to Him:

Romans 8:38-39 (NLT) I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels can’t, and the demons can’t. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can’t keep God’s love away. Whether we are high above the sky or in the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

We must have faith in our God’s Love and His Work in Christ!

Developing Unwavering Faith

Our God’s Word reveals that He has standards. Hebrews 1:6 teaches us that our lives are not pleasing in the eyes of God if we do not believe who He is and that He is willing and able to keep the promises He has made to us. Romans 1:17 teaches us faith is a requirement to live a godly life, with access to God’s kingdom. It is imperative we work to develop faith that does not waver.

James 1:6-8 (KJV) But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.

What does wavering, double-minded and unstable look like?
Some synonyms of the term waver are vacillate, fluctuate, and oscillate. Some definitions are:
(1) To be undecided between two opinions or courses of action (in thought, choice, or feeling)
(2) To be doubtful; to flip from one side to the other
(3) To shift back and forth uncertainly
(4) To retreat and advance in waves
(5) To swing backward and forward like a pendulum
(6) To move or travel back and forth between two points
(7) To vary between opposing beliefs, feelings, or theories
(8) To differ above and below a standard

Imagine trying to give a gift to someone whose hand is continually opening and closing. Imaging trying to choose a gift for someone who is constantly changing his/her mind. Consider this; our prayers, decrees and declarations go unanswered NOT because God is angry or picking and choosing who to bless. They go unanswered because WE fail to meet the standard of faith.

Each of us can develop unwavering faith in our God; the kind that overcomes the world and all that life throws at us, if we believe what the Father has done through Christ Jesus, our Lord.

1 John 5:4-5 (NLT) For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.

Unwavering faith honors the Jesus Christ, recognizing Him as the offspring of God and man. He is the seed of our God (His Word) spoken into the flesh of a man. He is the only one qualified to represent the Father in the fulfillment of the covenant promise to contend with those who contend with us (Isaiah 49:25). He is the only sinless man qualified to be murdered, creating a debt that could not be repaid, so all that all humanity has a path of repentance and restoration to the kingdom of our Heavenly Father.

Hebrews 10:19-23  (KJV) 19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 By a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh; 21 And having an high priest over the house of God; 22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is faithful that promised).

Consider Hebrews 10:19-23, wherein believers are instructed to be diligent and consistent in confessing our hope in the promises and power of God, as revealed in Jesus Christ. Our diligence and consistency must not depend upon who we are, what we possess, or what we can do. It must be rooted and birthed out of in our love and appreciation of who our God is, what He has done for humanity, and what He has promised to do for those who believe in Him.

Unwavering faith keeps its eye on Jesus.
Our faith should be dependent on God’s character, His Word (promises/instructions) and Holy Spirit. The moment we take our eyes off God, (by failing to recognize we use His wisdom, strength and authority to succeed), we struggle, stumble or fall (Philippians 2:13). This is exactly what happened to Peter:

Matthew 14:24-31 24 (NLT) Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves. 25 About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the water, they were terrified. In their fear, they cried out, “It’s a ghost!” 27 But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage. I am here!” 28 Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.” 29 “Yes, come,” Jesus said. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. 31 Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?”

Peter’s faith in The Christ was strong enough to allow him to walk on water. The moment he considered that the power of the storm might be greater than authority and power of God, as revealed in Jesus The Christ, he began to sink. Even then, our God rescued him! We must learn from our God’s interaction with Peter; it will build and deepen our faith!

Jesus is God’s Standard of Faith Revealed                                                                               He is our great example (Hebrews 12:2). His life is the pattern we must follow to have a successful faith life. God has a chosen path for each of us; we are not clones. He has promised if we give Him our lives (spirit, soul and body), and allow His Word and Spirit govern our lives, He will walk us into His “good, perfect and acceptable will” (Romans 12:1-2).

Jesus overcame the contradictions of humanity, and the threats and traps of the enemy. He took the worst satan had to offer, made an open display of God’s power and authority over sin, death, hell and the grave, and restored man’s access to Eden or heaven on earth. He did it all honoring the Father, His Word and allowing the Holy Spirit to govern His life. The Scripture tells us we will have struggles, but fear not we are in Christ. He has already overcome the world and satan. He has left us all the tools needed, so we can do the same (John 16:33). Hallelujah!

Unwavering Faith has been and will be tested.
The Apostle Mark lets us know demonic influences, tests, trials and troubles come to root up the Word in our hearts before it can produce God’s will in our lives (Mark 4: 13-19). Familiar spirits watch the lives of those who have not accepted the justification of the blood of Jesus. They watch the lives of those not hidden in Christ’s death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and seating. They work along with other demonic influences, carnal people and the circumstances of life (using abuse, neglect, affliction, cares, deceptions of life) to try to make us give up and disqualify ourselves from receiving God’s promises. Know this; however, familiar spirits and any other unclean spirit is no match for a child of God who lives a life that is pleasing to God (unwavering faith)!

What does Unwavering Faith Look Like?
Unwavering faith in a supernatural force that produces, that manifests the heart, mind, authority and power of our God and His will in the earth. This force comes by hearing and believing all that our God has said and done in the Scripture and the Person of Jesus The Christ.

Unwavering faith accepts God’s Word as the ultimate truth and allows His Word (Scripture and Jesus) and His Holy Spirit to govern our lives. Unwavering faith knows it is accepted, approved by God, and safely hidden in Jesus The Christ. Unwavering faith uses the Word of God to change circumstances, to transform the hearts and therefore, the thinking and lives of people, according to God’s will. Unwavering faith confesses and obeys the instruction of God, according to the Scripture.

Unwavering faith sets a guard at its lips and speaks in agreement with the Word of God. Unwavering faith requires we judge all thoughts and declare any thought that disagrees with the promises/instruction of God, a lie. Unwavering faith requires we judge our actions, demanding that we live, walk, and talk in agreement with the Word of our God. Unwavering faith requires we ask our God to reveal any double-mindedness, as we make conscious decisions to take Him at His Word. Unwavering faith is fruitful:

John 4:20 (NLT) 20 And the seed that fell on good soil represents those who hear and accept God’s word and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as had been planted!”

Unwavering faith stays in the fight to produce a life that subdues and takes dominion over sin, and replenishes the earth with disciples and things that reveal the character, nature, mind, and power of our God. Unwavering faith endures, even in the face of tests, trials, and struggle. No matter what must be overcome, unwavering faith keeps our hearts and minds firmly guarded and protected as it trusts in God’s love, His willingness to help us, and His power/authority and already established plan to get us up and over.

Heaven Father,
Thank You that we can be strong because of Your love and power. We thank You for the tools and weapons of the kingdom; for the gifts of the Holy Spirit, the armor of God, the knowledge of who You are and that we are in You), the fruit of the Holy Spirit, Your wisdom, power and authority. You have given us Your authority and power to subdue all evil and promised to keep us from harm. Help us to live in unwavering faith. We humble ourselves declaring, “You alone are God; all other gods are idols.” We thank you that as we respect and honor You and obey Your Word, satan and all his cohorts are forced to flee from us.

We thank You that our hearts are fixed; we choose to remember who You are, how much You love us, and what You have done for us. We do not fear bad news; we trust You. We will not fear; we will see the desire of our enemies turned upon them. We pray that they repent and give their lives to You. Save today. Thank You for allowing us to recognize temptation; thank You for giving us a way out. You fight for us against our enemies. We appreciate You. We thank You for the crown of life and authority for every test we pass. We thank You for empowering us to turn and help our brothers and sisters. We love You.

We thank You that nothing evil and hell conjures can prevail against us; they have already been defeated. Breathe on us; open our understanding even the more to this truth. Help us to know Your grace and favor is truly more than enough for us. We will not faint nor be weary; we will keep doing good because we know harvest is upon us.

We thank You for unwavering faith. We thank You that we are intimately acquainted with You, Your Word and Holy Spirit. We follow no other voice, nor yield to any other spirit. You have ordained that we be kept from stumbling; but if we stumble or fall, we do not wallow in self-pity or fret in fear. We are quick to repent, change our thoughts and ways, and return to You, knowing Your promise to forgive, cleanse and restore us. You have done it all.

We unashamedly ask for more of You in our lives. We know You delight in giving us Your mind, will, and Holy Spirit; You delight in leading and guiding our lives. We hold out the cups of our hearts to You. We lay our lives and everything good that can be said about us on the altar of Your love and grace. You have promised whatever we ask in prayer, believe that we have received it, and it will be ours. We release our unwavering faith to You, our ever-faithful God. In Jesus name, we pray, and it is so. Amen!

The Value and Power of Faith

Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Be reminded, watchmen all over the world, we must never underestimate the value and power of our God-given faith. As money is the medium of exchange in the physical world, our God designed His faith to be the medium of exchange in the spirit realm. Hebrews 11:1 tells us our faith (absolute trust in God) is the substance or material heaven uses to manifest the things we hope and pray for. Our faith or absolute trust in His character, ability, willingness, and faithfulness to fulfill His promises IS the evidence or proof that we have what we ask for IN SPITE OF the fact that we have not “seen”it.  The truth is it simply has not “shown up” physically as yet.

Another way to explain this Truth is, the confidence we have in our God to He keep His promises to His children, IS faith, and the ingredient heaven uses to move things from the supernatural into the natural realm, manifesting what we are hoping, expecting, desiring, or anticipating from our God.

Think about what was just said about faith, in light of this Scripture:

Matthew 17:20 (NLT) “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”

ONLY BELIEVE
No matter what happens around us, we must never back off our faith in our God, Who He is, and all He has said. We must consider the following truths:

Hebrews 11:3 By faith, the entire universe was formed at God’s command.

Hebrews 11:5 By faith, Enoch was taken to heaven without experiencing death.

Hebrews 11:7 By faith, Noah built a boat, as he waited for rain; both were unheard of.

Hebrews 11:8 By faith, Abraham left his home, journeying to a place he knew not of.

We must believe and use this wonderful gift of our God’s faith.  Faith works with our God’s Loving help to be and do the impossible, and with them we can be, do and receive just that! We must remember Jesus’ warning that satan comes immediately to root up any word the Holy Spirit plants in our hearts; the devil knows the purpose and power of our God’s Word to move us into new revelations and destinations. WE MUST REFUSE TO BE ROBBED OUR OUR GOD-GIVEN FAITH!

PRAY OUR GOD’S WORD INTO THE LIVES OF HUMANITY AND THE EARTH
No matter what goes on in the world around us, watchmen, we must believe our God and pray, decree, declare, and command that His will be done. We must refuse to be shaken from your mountain moving faith!  We must pray with the expectation to see our God’s hand at work in the land of the living!  Hallelujah!

REMAIN UNSHAKEN DURING HIS PROCESSES OF CHANGE
I know many of you, like myself, are experiencing heaven’s processes. I know change is occurring in our lives as I write. I know what it is to feel absolutely out of control. Reject all fear and trust our God, knowing that it is He, teaching each of us to recognize and move with Him, His Word, His character, love, grace, power, and authority. He must shake all that can be shaken so that the dross can be removed and all that remains is the pure gold of our faith, until our character and nature is transformed into His.

Beloved watchmen, we must remember our God’s goal in all this. Let us allow His Word (Scripture and Jesus) and His Holy Spirit lead and guide us in life and ministry. May we each more fully understand that walks with us, preparing vessels He can trust to carry His glory, and manifest His power and authority in the earth. He is equipping us with the spiritual protective gear of humility, prayerfulness, love, and respect for and towards Him and His Truth. He is getting us ready, as He teaches us, as He transforms and conforms us into the image of Jesus His Christ (Romans 8:28-29).

BE SOBER-MINDED IN FAITH
As our wonderful God and Heavenly Father does all this, watchmen, never forget or neglect the value and power of our God-given faith.

Father God, we love and trust You. 

We thank You for Your blessed gift of faith, in Jesus name.

We pray, trust and obey; do all that is in Your heart.  Hallelujah!

 

 

Faith is Key to Success in All Things

Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Faith is the spiritual material that heaven uses to produce those things for which we petition our God.  It is the spiritual substance needed to manifest the inheritance of the believer in the earth. 

Romans 10:17 (KJV) So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.

Romans 1:16-17 (KJV) 16 For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Faith is a gift given by our God, to those who choose to believe in and seek to live, move, and exist in His Character, Word, nature, love, grace, authority, and power. Our God-given faith in the Gospel of Jesus His Christ contains the revelation of all He is, and who He made humans to be. Faith in this revelation IS key to unlock the authority and power to obtain our inheritance in Him (deliverance, provision, protection, success…).

The Gospel IS the revelation of all our Heavenly Father wrought in and through His Word made human (Jesus Christ), and IS (fully contains) the power of God unto salvation for all who believe! The Gospel IS the revelation of our God’s ability to save (rescue) a life.

The Gospel reveals His Love and grace, His sovereign authority and power to transform, conform, equip, empower, restore…. the lives of all who believe in Him, respect Him, and take Him at His Word (Scripture and Jesus).

 

OUR GOD’S GREAT SALVATION
Salvation, according to definition means: (1) deliverance from sin and its power and effects, (2) preservation from destruction or failure, (3) conservation of health and welfare from sickness, disease, and death, and (4) liberation from ignorance or illusion. Living in faith in the Truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ provides it ALL!

THE GOSPEL IS THE TRUTH ABOUT OUR HEAVENLY FATHER
REVEALED IN JESUS CHRIST!
The unlimited power and authority of our God is revealed in the birth,life, ministry, death, resurrection, ascension, and seating of Jesus The Christ, our Savior, Lord and coming King. Sincere pursuit of the knowledge of our God, His character, heart, Word, power, and authority yields the revelation of the Person of Jesus His Christ, who He is, and the reality that our Heavenly Father strategically solved humanity’s problems through Him.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ IS the revelation knowledge of the work of our God’s restoration of humanity’s God-given gifts of righteousness, authority, power, and dominion, which He ordained before He laid the foundation of the earth.

In the Scripture, our God uses Jesus His Christ, to reveal Himself, as THE Source of this revelation; through Christ our God makes His authority and power available as we choose to embrace His Truth:

Matthew 16:13-19 (KJV) 13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 14 And they said, Some say that Thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but My Father which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

CONSIDER MATTHEW 16:13-19
Jesus explains our Heavenly Father unfolding (revelation) of the reality of His existence and purpose to those who seek to know Him with a sincere heart. Notice that many people had their thoughts about the Person and purpose of Jesus; however, only Simon Peter received and shared the revelation knowledge, because He truly believed in Jesus Christ. So it remains today; many have opinions about who and why Jesus is, but only those who seek Him, with heart that truly desires to know Him, is He revealed as pur Savior, Lord, Conqueror, THE Christ, and coming King.

THE TWO ROCKS (TWO REVELATIONS)
First, Jesus, Himself is The Rock, hewn from the “Unequaled Mountain” our Heavenly Father. He is the Chief Cornerstone of our Heavenly Father’s Truth that the builders (religious and rebellious leaders of His day) rejected (Matthew 21:42; Romans 9:33; 1 Corinthians 10:4).

Secondly, Peter is translated rock or a stone. “Peter” is a rock hewn out of The Rock, as are all who believe and follow Jesus Christ. He tells us that our faith in the work our Heavenly Father brought to pass through Him, gives us the keys (access, understanding, and authority) to “rule” according to our Heavenly Father’s standards, and in His power and authority. In Christ, the revelation of who humanity truly is, is unfolded; Hallelujah! We can know exactly who our God created us to be!

THE ROCK: REVELATION KNOWLEDGE OF JESUS CHRIST
Sincere desire and pursuit of the understanding of the Persons of Jesus Christ, our Heavenly Father, and His Holy Spirit yields revelation knowledge, and wisdom hidden by the conditioning of sin, and the deception of satan.

THE LEVEL OF OUR FAITH IN OUR HEAVENLY FATHER’S WORK
IN JESUS CHRIST, IS THE DIRECT REPRESENTATION
(the measuring rod)
OF THE LEVEL OF OUR AUTHORITY IN THE EYES OF ALL DARKNESS.

The revelation of the victory and Lordship of Jesus Christ is the key to taking dominion over all darkness. The dominion comes through godly humility and dependence (faith in) our God and His Christ:

Philippians 2:7-11 (KJV) (Jesus) made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

9 Wherefore God (our Heavenly Father, His Word, and His Holy Spirit) also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Darkness knows it must bow and/or expose its neck to the authority and power our God has invested and endowed in the name of Jesus Christ. We will only know this to be true, as we use the tools that our God has given us against the attacks of the enemy. We will see forward movement, when we live, move, exist in alignment with our God. He knows we are no match for darkness without Him; therefore, He never leaves, nor forsake us. We must believe!

ONLY BELIEVE!

Mark 16:17-18 (KJV)These signs shall follow them that believe; In My name (authority) shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Watchmen, as we pray for the nations, we must have the same “speak the Word only” faith as the centurion (Matthew 8:8). We must believe that the Holy Spirit guides our prayers, and we have the things we pray for, because our hearts are full of faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

HEAVENLY FATHER
We thank You for being who You are. We thank You for Your unfailing love towards us, and how Your merciful kindness is expressed to us every day. It is Your mercy that keeps us from being consumed by the enemy of our souls. Thank You for helping our unbelief. Thank You for answering prayer, for answering us when we seek Your wisdom.

Father, we pray specifically for all on the front lines of ministry. The world and unbelievers may consider them as targets for evil, but we thank You that Your Word is their impenetrable Shield and unstoppable Sword. Thank You that Your Light shines brightly through us in the darkest of places.

We decree Father, “Rivers of living water, Your Holy Spirit, be fully released from the hearts of God’s faithful followers!” Thank You for moving those who are prepared from the background to the forefront. Thank You for Your open doors, and opportunities. Thank You for rewarding them according to their faith and service.

Thank You for deliverance ministry all over the world. Thank You that we walk in greater knowledge, understanding, wisdom, power, and authority. Thank You that secrets and mysteries are unfolding before us and we are taking dominion. We are doing the greater works, Jesus promised. We are bringing restoration to Your people and the land through faith, prayer, fasting, praise, and worship. We are not deceived; we know our labor is not in vain. We are praying Your will, and You are doing Your will.

We lift our voices as one and declare the name of Jesus over the nations. We lift our voices as one and declare His Lordship! We shake the foundations of the kingdom of darkness with Your Word and with Jesus’ name! We are not deceived; we know darkness is losing its grip on believers all over the world. We are gathering in our secret places and calling on the name of Jesus. We are petitioning You in agreement with Your Word; therefore we are confident that we have all that we ask for. Again we say, do all that is in Your heart, today and every day in Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen and it is so!

THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN,
TODAY AND EVERY DAY, HALLELUJAH!

EVEN SO, COME LORD JESUS!

Boosts to Our Faith

Watchmen all over the world, I trust you have been blessed during my seeming absence.

As I have stated, I am an affirmed Pastor and minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and my God-given spiritual father is Bishop T. D. Jakes. I just returned from Dallas TX, from his 2018 International Pastors and Leadership Conference 2018; #globalthinktank. It was dynamic; through His man-servant and all whom He gathered, our God provided teaching and strategies for pastors, business people, and leaders in every area of life, and the seven systems of the world.

Beloved watchmen, it is time for God’s people to take over. This conference was full of tools and information, of encouragement, correction, and impartation to help believers be an active part of building the Body of Christ. The entire conference and much more can be viewed as a member at www.bishopsvillage.com.

No matter where we are in your faith life, the information in the conference will create shifts and change perspectives so that we use our faith in alignment with the will of our God for our lives.

There is a 7 day free trial when you register. Our Bishop has a heart to share Truth with others, so they fulfill their God-given destinies. Please consider becoming a member, even if it is only to listen to the messages of this conference during the seven day trial period. Our God and my spirit father/prophet wants us all to be blessed and empowered to do our part in preparing for the return of our Christ, Jesus our Savior, Lord, Messiah, and coming King!

It will be well worth it. Blessings and Love to you all, in Jesus name!
