Many have considered a lack of money or resources to be a normal way of life. In Christ, this is not so!  Christ bore our poverty as well as our sin and sicknesses so we should not bear them again. Like everything in the kingdom of darkness, there are ruling spirits who administer these things.  A sickness can be caused by a physical problem or infection or poisoning or anything in the natural. This does not mean that spirits are not behind these operations. They may not be directly responsible but they are the ones behind such oppression called sicknesses and disease.   Acts 10:38 How God anointed and consecrated Jesus of Nazareth with the [Holy] Spirit and with strength and ability and power; how He went about doing good and,in particular, curing all who were harassed and oppressed by [the power of] the devil, for God was with Him.   Oppression is of the devil...

DEDICATION to the Lord   Psalms 112:1-9 PRAISE THE Lord! (Hallelujah!) Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who fears (reveres and worships) the Lord, who delights greatly in His commandments. His [spiritual] offspring shall be mighty upon earth; the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Prosperity and welfare are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever. Light arises in the darkness for the upright, gracious, compassionate, and just [who are in right standing with God]. It is well with the man who deals generously and lends, who conducts his affairs with justice. He will not be moved forever; the [uncompromisingly] righteous (the upright, in right standing with God) shall be in everlasting remembrance. He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is firmly fixed, trusting (leaning on and being confident) in the Lord. His heart is established and steady, he will not be afraid while he waits to see his desire established upon...

PROVISIONS Healing, Protection, providing all needs met, according to His riches in glory. Directions and guidance.   Philippians 4:19 And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.   Psalms 91 HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. [Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the...

The New Birth The scriptures are personalized and spoken as to build into ourselves the realities expressed in God's word.   2 Corinthians 5:17-21 Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! But all things are from God, Who through Jesus Christ reconciled us to Himself [received us into favor, brought us into harmony with Himself] and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation [that by word and deed we might aim to bring others into harmony with Him]. It was God [personally present] in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself, not counting up and holding against [men] their trespasses [but cancelling them], and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor). So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal...

HOW TO RECEIVE SPIRITUAL IMPARTATION Spiritual Hunger. Jesus said those who hunger and thirst after righteousness are blessed, because they shall be satisfied. Gideon was hungry for the move of God and he was used mightily of God to bring deliverance to his people.We must know that God is more willing to see miracles happen than we are but He is waiting on us to position ourselves through deep spiritual hunger. Past moves of God happened as men positioned themselves through deep hunger, not just because God decided to move. Asking. Jesus said he that asks, receives. Matt.7:8. James 4:2 says, “You do not have, because you do not ask God”.  God gives the gift of the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him. Solomon asked God for wisdom and he got it! What we ask for shows what our priorities in life are. Purposeful interaction & Discipleship. Acts 4:13 says “When they...

UNDERSTANDING THE ROLE OF FAITH Faith is an inward conviction about God and His Word and His willingness to demonstrate His power on our behalf. Faith is the spiritual substance poured into our hearts when we believe God’s Word. It comes by hearing, affects our convictions and fills us with assurance. Faith in our hearts influences our words, actions and expectations. When faith is present, the power flows, when faith is reduced, the power is reduced. God is faithful. Let us trust Him to perform His Word in our lives. And if any ‘climate’ prevails, let us get into prayer and fasting as we exercise our faith in God’s ability to demonstrate His power on our behalf. HOW TO RECEIVE YOUR HEALING First, you must believe that Jesus bore your sicknesses and diseases on the cross of Calvary. So by His stripes you are healed! Meditate on the scriptures as you mutter the...

THE ‘CLIMATE’ Everyone carries a climate. It is a function of your thoughts, expectations and belief systems. Your beliefs affect your thoughts. The words we speak also affect our climate. People and things respond to the climate you allow in your life. How people thought about Jesus, in Mark 6:1-6, affected the miracles that He was able to do amongst them. The climate of unbelief is not just a decision not to believe; it is generated by a number of thought patterns. What they thought of Him, as opposed to who they thought the “Christ” ought to be, created some conflicting opinion about His genuineness. This hindered Him from functioning in power like He could do. Climates are dictated by prevailing MINDSETS. In Acts 10, the climate (or prevailing mindset) was that only the Jews could be saved. Climates can hinder the out-working of God’s power until someone does what it...

THE POWER OF PRAYER Prayer can release angels, can activate the gifts of the Holy Spirit (as seen in Acts 10) and makes tremendous power available. Let the Holy Spirit help your prayer life as you pray in the Spirit as well as with your understanding. (See Romans 8:26, 1 Corinthians 14:14 and Jude 20). James 5:16-18 “Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]. Elijah was a human being with a nature such as we have [with feelings, affections, and a constitution like ours]; and he prayed earnestly for it not to rain, and no rain fell on the earth for three years and six...

POWER GENERATION AND THE VESSEL The covenant that God had with his people is powerful. The question is how do we translate a provision of the covenant to become an experiential reality? There is a lot in our new covenant that still needs to be translated into experiential realities in the lives of people. Jesus prepared for His ministry by fasting and praying before going out to preach, teach and heal the sick. He said that the basis of the healing he released over the woman in Luke 13:16, was the Abrahamic covenant. Exodus 15:26 “And he said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of Jehovah thy God, and do what is right in his eyes, and incline thine ears to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the complaints upon thee that I have put upon the Egyptians; for I am Jehovah who healeth...

THE WOMAN WITH THE ISSUE OF BLOOD Mark 5:25-34 “And there was a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years, And who had endured much suffering under [the hands of] many physicians and had spent all that she had, and was no better but instead grew worse. She had heard the reports concerning Jesus, and she came up behind Him in the throng and touched His garment, For she kept saying, If I only touch His garments, I shall be restored to health. And immediately her flow of blood was dried up at the source, and [suddenly] she felt in her body that she was healed of her [distressing] ailment. And Jesus, recognizing in Himself that the power proceeding from Him had gone forth, turned around immediately in the crowd and said, who touched My clothes? And the disciples kept saying to Him, You see the crowd...
