Apostolic Unity

August 18, 2010

Ephesians reveals Jesus’ operational strategy for His Body, or “ekklesia,” poorly translated “church” (the word “church” is a word for a building or structure, but the word “ekklesia” means “called together for a purpose.”) By the time he gets to chapter 4, Paul is discussing the transition from Jesus on earth establishing kingdom to Jesus…

Giving is Still Biblical

July 13, 2010

After getting an overload of “Biblical revelations” from people using the same Bible I read to prove otherwise, giving to God is still Biblical. We can give natural things to God. Yes, to God. In order to give God things, we give them to God’s leaders to accomplish God’s assignments in the earth. Giving to…

Kingdom Reset 4

July 4, 2010

In my book, The Spirit & Power of Elijah, I began to make the case for presence-driven leadership. Jesus wants to be more involved with His Church than ever before! His Presence is not receding or moving away; He is getting more involved in the decision-making and problem-solving than ever. He is coming to stay…

Kingdom Reset 3

June 27, 2010

Each of the 7 Churches of the Revelation had a problem or challenge to resolve. Jesus measured each of them by their response to that problem or challenge. Ephesus was commended –  “You don’t tolerate evil people; you identify false apostles,” for example; both Pergamum and Thyatira were rebuked for “tolerance,” one for tolerating Balaam and…

Processing the Prophetic

June 19, 2010

It was 6:44 AM. I was awakened with God’s voice in my ears. He was speaking to me about the process of prophetic guidance. Isaiah 64:4 says, “Since before time began no one has ever imagined, No ear heard, no eye seen, a God like you who works for those who wait for him.” [The Message]…

Releasing the Power of Honor

June 2, 2010

“Those who honor Me, I will honor, but those who despise Me, I will disdain,” Jesus says. God does not make honor optional. He tells us who to honor and how to honor them. A self-focused or narcissistic generation overlooks the power of honor because of a faulty value system. Honor basically means “value.” The…

Assignment Reset, Part 2

June 1, 2010

Resets always begin with “where are we?” We don’t leave things behind that God works into us between resets. When Paul and Barnabas are “separated for the work,” they are not separated from. They are separated to. Although several major resets in my life haven’t been by any means of measurement “pleasant, peaceful, or proper,” I…

Assignment Reset

June 1, 2010

We all work and live within the kingdom on assignment. These assignment separate us to specific mission. The assignment defines priorities and leadership in our kingdom living and serving. Fresh orders come through this matrix. Being assigned means that we enter into a larger assignment, to expand that vision. New leaders do not change the…

Fullness of Consecration

May 31, 2010

If hell can’t keep me from consecration, hell will work to limit consecration in my life. Consecration requires the loss of something than God gains control of by my willing surrender–sacrifice is an example and is the most common Bible picture of consecration. The end result of consecration has to do with the use or…

Obedience Without Limits

May 30, 2010

In FreedomMinistry Levels 1 and 2 we discuss how to release the power of the Cross and the power of the Spirit without limits. If hell cannot keep me from the Cross, hell will work to limit the power of the Cross in my life. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 1:17 that it is possible…
