IN DEBT to the Believer and the Unbeliever
"Both to Greeks and to barbarians
(to the cultured and the uncultured), both to the wise and to the foolish,
I have an obligation to discharge and a duty to perform and a debt to pay."

You Will Know the Truth

"You will know the truth and
the truth shall make you free."
John 8:32

"It's not by might, nor by power,
but by My Spirit," says the Lord.
Zechariah 4:6

As I was praying in the Holy Ghost, I began to hear the Spirit of God saying inside of me, "Dig deep. Dig deep past all the garbage of this world, past all that's covered up that well that releases the rivers of living water in you. Dig deep past the doubt, unbelief, fear, confusion, and frustration with a passion and determination to know the truth that will set you free. Take up that gift that has been given you already, the one that I told you would give you power when you received it. Activate it by your faith. Submerge yourself in it and get out of your own limited reasoning, and align yourself with My will and power to bring forth My kingdom blessing and inheritance for you.  I've given you a gift to dig it up out of "your stuff", to see it by your spiritman and bring it forth out of the realm of the spirit into the realm of the natural, but without taking up that tool and activating that gift by your faith you will fall short of seeing the blessing in the natural."

I praise God for this word of encouragement, because in this world our circumstances are screaming at us to get our attention, to get control of our mind so that we will focus on them and not on what the truth of what Jesus has done and how He has triumphed over them. It's the victory that Christ has won over the devil, the god of this world, that we need to keep at the forfront of our minds, and it's this gift of the Holy Spirit that helps us to do that.  It plows through the garbage of doubt and unbelief into the clearing of the truth of God's Word, which is the lamp to our feet and the light to our path and which speaks the very will and heart of God.  It helps us to pray without ceasing, to remain focused on the truth of the matter, and to stay in the attitude of thanksgiving and praise, for the truth and victory is ever before you. Sometimes you are plowing through the garbage with the Holy Ghost and sometimes you are souring into the heavenlies. Sometimes you are speaking and communicating to the Lover of your soul in the sweet intimacy of your prayer language and other times you are commanding and declaring your authority IN Him to the enemy. It's a gift, a supernatural gift given to us by a supernatural God to accomplish supernatural things, to communicate supernaturally to Him and to get past our own limited mind and reasoning. 

Yesterday I was telling the Lord how I wished more people would receive and use this gift. And as I imagined all that would be accomplished and manifested in the natural if more believers did, I heard the Lord speak, "I just wish the ones that had it already would use it."

So the Spirit of God is wanting to encourage us today to dust off this supernatural, God-given gift of the Holy Spirit and begin to activate it again, to use that heavenly prayer language that's been given you once again. He's encouraging us to begin to dig deep past all the doubt and unbelief, past all the discouragement and frustration and get desperate and deteremined enough to see the things that God has promised and ordained for us to come forth as we dig afresh the wells of our salvation and our kingdom inheritance. Let the gift of the Holy Spirit through your heavenely prayer language begin to flow and dig into the depths of the love and the treasures of His kingdom, keeping our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, while we see His kingdom come forth here on earth as it is in heaven. Amen

Making a Withdrawal

"The wealth of the wicked
is laid up for the righteous."
Psalm 13:22

I take my position in Christ, and I declare that I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I have been made righteous by His blood, and by His righteousness I place a demand on the anointing to make a withdrawal from this wealth of the wicked that's been laid up for me.

My God delights in my prosperity, and He desires that I prosper and be in good health just as my soul prospers. It pleases my Father for me to receive and take part in that which He has provided for me in the kingdom and for me to know the surpassing greatness of His power in them that would believe. It pleases Him when I receive of my inheritance that has been predestined for me for a good work that He has prepared beforehand that I should walk in it. It blesses and pleases my Father to bless me so that I may be a blessing and glorify His name.
So in pleasing My Father I receive of His grace, and I place a demand on the anointing that He has given me to make a withdrawal from this wealth of the wicked that has been laid up for me in Christ Jesus.

I thank You, Father, for Your blessing. I thank You for Your gift of grace and Your love that I may advance the kingdom and be a blessing. I thank You, Father, for choosing me and bringing me into the kingdom for such a time as this. I thank You, Father, for loving me and never giving up on me. Amen

Angels on Assignment

"Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy."
Psalm 107:2

I am the redeemed of the Lord. I have been purchased and redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. I have been redeemed and reinstated into the kingdom of God. I am seated with Christ at the right hand of the Father, far above every rule and authority and every power and dominion and every name that is named, and everything has been put into subjection under my feet.

And I take my position in Christ and I dispatch angels on assignment to deliver the blessing of God to His house and to His people. Angels go now and deliver the blessing. Angels go now and take that blessing which is ordained for God's people to advance the kingdom and to bless them that they may be a blessing.

This was the direction the Lord led me in prayer the other night, taking my position in Him and receiving the ministry of angels that He has given me to release and deliver His blessing. Later the next day as I was just praising God and rejoicing that the angels had been dispatched and were delivering the blessing, that they were on their assignments and that God's people were receiving their blessings, I heard the Lord say, "Speak to the prince of the power of the air and command him to split and separate and give access to these angels for their destination, and then begin to pray in the Spirit and it will be like a mighty arrow that hits the target."  I realized then that there was a hinderance to these blessings that the angels were carrying and that they would not reach their destination unless this hinderance, this spirit, was spoken to. So in obedience I took my position in Christ and I began to speak to the prince of the power of the air and command him to split and separate and give access to the angels to reach their destination. I told him that I came in the name of Jesus Christ and that he had to obey me and seperate. With this command I began to pray much in the Holy Ghost with a confidence and an empowerment of His Spirit directing these words to hit their target. Then in the Spirit I could see the seperation taking place and angels sweeping through the opening.

Praise the Lord! Glory to God! 

I rejoice that God gives us the direction for our prayers and then empowers us to see and know and understand what needs to be done to see the answer. We are coming to a new place in Him. The Holy Spirit is being poured out, and if we will receive and believe we will be empowered and anointed to do things we've never done, go where we've never been, see what we've never seen, and be who we've never been.

Thank You, Lord, for Your love and grace. Thank You for Your mercy and lovingkindness that never ends. Thank You for Your Holy Spirit and Your blessing that is being poured out, for angles on assignment that have been dispatched and that are on their way bringing gifts and blessings from Your heart and hand. Thank You for giving us eyes to see, ears to hear and hearts to undertand. Thank You for Your Word and promises that You stand behind and that You use to teach and guide us with. You are and AWESOME God, Jesus, and I love and cherish You and seek You with all my heart. Amen

Is There Not a Cause?

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because He has anointed me."
Luke 4:18

I come in the name of the Lord, and I square off with the Goliath of Lack and Poverty and declare, "Who is this uncircumcised giant that defies the children of the living God? This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I will strike you down and remove your head from you."

And with this declaration I take the smooth stone of my gift of giving, and I hurl it at this giant, and by the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit that stone will hit him right square between the eyes and bring him to his knees, defeated, powerless and no longer a threat to God's people.

This cinerio has been in my spirit since Sunday morning following the Spirit filled and inspired ministry of our pastor. Because of the anointing upon the delivering of that message my spirit has been so charged to come against this Goliath of Lack and Poverty, this spirit of the anti-Christ that has taunted and oppressed not only the children of God but even more so those that don't know Jesus and don't have a clue of the love and life that is theirs in Him. This giant of Lack and Poverty has been allowed to remain and oppress, beat down and torment God's people long enough. It has been allowed to lie and steal and rob from God's people too long. The Spirit of the Lord in me spoke to me to take up my smooth stone of the gift of my giving, that giving amount that the fear of lack has kept me from moving on, and in the name of the Lord to hurl it at this Goliath of Lack and Poverty and to declare that THIS DAY the Lord was giving him into my hands, that he was coming down and would be defeated in my life and in the lives of those that He had called me to stand in the gap for. 

So in faith and obedience to the Spirit of God that is in me, that works with me and now has come upon me for this, I charge and run at this giant and sling my stone in the face of fear of lack and declare, "THIS DAY YOU ARE DEFEATED in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!"  Hallelujiah!

"For the oppression of the poor,
for the sighing of the needy,
Now I will arise," says the Lord.
Now I will set him in the safety
for which he yearns."
Psalm 12:5

Then They Will See and Know

"Your words have been strong and hard against Me,
says the Lord, Yet, you say, What have we spoken
against You?
You have said, It is useless to serve God, and
what profit is it if we keep His ordinances and walk
gloomingly and as if in mourning apparal before
the Lord of hosts? And now we consider the proud
and arrogant to be happy and favored; evildoers
are exalted and prosper; yes, and when they test
God, they escape (unpunished).
Then those who feared the Lord talked often one
to another; and the Lord listened and heard it, and
a book of rememberance was written before Him
of those who reverenced and worshipfully feared
the Lord and who thought on His name.
And they shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts,
in that day when I publicly recognize and openly
declare them to be My jewels (My special
posssession, My peculiar treasure). And I will
spare them, as a man spares his own son who
serves him. Then shall you return and discern
between the righteous and the wicked, between
him who serves God and him who does not serve Him.
Malachi 3:13-18 Amp

The Lord is pouring His Spirit out, and His eye is upon those that have been faithful, that have not turned their backs or hardened their heart during the time of testing but have received it as the Father's correction and molding. His grace and supernatural power and blessing is abounding and is about to manifest upon us as He publicly recognizes His jewels and His special possession, that we may shine forth His glory, that we may be a testimony of His faithfulness and covenant promise, that we may be an expression and extention of the very heart of the Father. As the times become darker in the days and years ahead, His light will shine forth brighter in and through us as we remain true to the Lord and draw closer to Him. His glory will shine and the world will see and know Whose we are and Who we serve.

Run to the Father in these desperate times. Fall at His feet. Draw upon His love and mercies. Draw and receive the anointing that is yours as His child and that He so desires to pour upon you. He WILL pour it on you if you will ask with sincerity and with the desire to be His hand and extention of love and power to the world. The truth remains that "God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son."  As the Body of Christ we are to be His body, a represention, a  facsimile of the life Jesus lived here on earth. We are to be extentions of Him, "going about doing good and healing all who are oppressed of the devil", preaching the gospel, healing the sick, cleansing the lepers, raising the dead and casting out demons. It's all in the anointing, and it's all in our commission, but we need the anointing to do it. It's the Holy Spirit that will anoint us for this. It's the Holy Spirit that we need to fall upon us as it did Jesus, and IT WILL as we ask, seek and draw upon Him. "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him."
