911

December 21, 2010

Spent some time in prayer during the night, during the lunar eclipse, but rested as morning was coming on. Then, at 9:11 AM, God spoke to me, “They are planning another 911. Multiple cities. Multiple nations. Multiple sites.” Immediately I heard Him say, “Psalm 91:1.” We know this Scripture well, “He that spends his days…

Next-Level Leadership Limitations

December 18, 2010

False Expectations False expectations often source from pride, and pride touches us when we have no particularly good reason to be proud! Paul says not to give a novice leadership because he isn’t ready to face this battle with pride. While I’ve certainly seen achievers and leaders with pride issues, pride isn’t a battle only…

Religion’s Substitutes

December 14, 2010

Busy Doings Good doings substituted for original destinies – good stuff being the meat and drink of religion – infiltrates the saints through waterways of disappointment and deception, flowing into harbors of contentment and comfort created by religious institutions.

Settle It with God

November 15, 2010

God the Father is always there at the ultimates of your life. Finally, you deal with Him, but only after you push through the issues within you, the separation layers between you and His final word on the subject. Hebrews 5 says, “In the days of His flesh, He had offered up prayers and petitions…

Renew Your Passion

November 10, 2010

Jesus says, “Men should pray all the time and not lose heart.” It seems prayer and passion walk together. I know that many intercessors require seasons of renewal because hell is working to distract them and life presents them with burdens to bear that are not the burden of the Lord. I know this is…

TakeOver Leadership, Paul

November 6, 2010

How Jesus Deals with People Paul’s takeover experience is New Testament classic, a clear picture of how Jesus deals with people after His Resurrection. He redeems and restores.
