Today is the 2nd day of Spring! I woke up this morning with an encouraging Word that spoke to my spirit a couple of days ago. In my life there have been extreme changes taking place that have made things rather murky and in a sense uncomfortable for me. I’m seeing people leave my life and new ones entering into it… there have been moments I have had mixed emotions about what I’m seeing, but the Lord encouraged me as I meditated on the meaning of Easter. He gave me this specific scripture:
18 “Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
19 Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.
20 The beast of the field will honor Me,
The jackals and the ostriches,
Because I give waters in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert,
To give drink to My people, My chosen.
I have a song that I still love and have posted before in a post I think I did a year ago and it’s from Dorinda Clarke Cole called Everything He Promised. May this Song bless your Spirit Everybody!
I haven’t been able to type up much for the past few days because there’s been sooo much on my plate, but I just wanted to drop by and bless y’all with a powerful song by Tasha Cobbs called Break Every Chains. For the most part, I am blessed with the fact that God is so powerful, He can break every chain that keeps us captive in the Name of Jesus.
Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
All we’ve got to do is ask in Jesus Name and these chains that keep us from progressing in life can be broken if we move by faith. We have to claim our freedom by faith.
Faith isn’t a passive force, it’s an active force that moves impossibilities to become possible.
This means that we all need to cooperate with the Holy Spirit. Faith isn’t a mere “feeling”, it’s a decision one makes that is translated into action. The truth is, we decide if we want to get healed or not. Like no one can force you to see the doctor…the Holy Spirit won’t force you to seek your healing or deliverance that is available to you today. YOU decide if you will have faith or not. Jesus can give you that which you need. If you need faith…ask for it. Remember….you don’t have to be the “Until now you haven’t asked nothing in My Name” -type person…. you should decide to be the asker.
Those that Ask from the Lord, often are the ones who end up receiving from the Lord. Faith is a decision; it’s a choice that produces a result. Faithlessness doesn’t require anything…except for you to decide not to decide to have faith at all.
The famous saying that goes… “All evil needs to triumph is for good men(and women) to do nothing”. In the same way, your captivity is determined by you deciding to do NOTHING. Faith takes you places and breaks the barriers that keep you from moving forward. Faithlessness keeps you in bondage with all your problems. Captivity can be a choice if you decide to accept that as your status quo. I say…. NOT MY PORTION!
What will you decide is your Portion today? Seek to increase your level of Faith and you will see amazing things happen.
God is waiting for FAITH SEEKERS!
God bless you everybody!
Wooohoooooooo it’s the final day of the Fast for me! The whole journey has been rather surreal for me. I remember going to church last night because we were praying throughout the 21 Day Daniel Fast so it was holding a prayer service, and as people were praying for their needs, I literally saw a cloud of smoke hovering the entire congregation and it filled the entire room and I knew it was the presence of God because this wasn’t the first time I’d seen this happen.
All the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the tabernacle door, and all the people rose and worshiped, each man in his tent door.
People of God, the presence of God is tangible from my experience. It was a fearful sight for me, because that is when you realize that you’ve entered into a place that is considered the Holy of Holies. I remember feeling like I was just trembling throughout the prayer session and what I can say is that when you enter into that Holy place, you can’t joke around in that presence. I believe that the same God who walked with the Isralites like a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night is able to make His presence known to those who reverentially fear Him. As I meditate today, I feel in my spirit that the Lord wants people to know that the Lord will lead you in the night time and in the day time with knowledge, instruction, direction from the Light that comes from His Word. All you have to do is watch Him lead and you follow as you walk by faith and not by sight.
For we walk by faith, not by sight.And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night.
I’m expecting a new move of God this year. What took years to be established will take days if not hours to be fulfilled. There is indeed a quickening in the spirit so don’t give up on what you are praying for is my encouragement today. God will show you the road in which you should travel if you just put your trust in Him today.
Moreover You led them by day with a cloudy pillar, And by night with a pillar of fire, To give them light on the road Which they should travel.Yet in Your manifold mercies You did not forsake them in the wilderness. The pillar of the cloud did not depart from them by day, To lead them on the road; Nor the pillar of fire by night, To show them light, And the way they should go.
I feel like celebrating the end of this fast with a song by J.Moss (feat. James Fortune) called You Did. May this Song bless your spirit today Everybody!
I know I know, It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on here, LOL .
The 21 Day Daniel Fast this year for me has been rather different from the one I had last year. I’d say that it is just as intense as last year and so many new things are happening around me that I can’t get into it just yet. All I can say is that it’s been an uphill battle in this fast to keep my wits about me without getting weary lol .
For the past few days, the Lord has been talking to me about the Spirit of Division. I thought to myself “What about it Lord?”, and that’s when He started to reveal things to me to keep note of for this year.
The Spirit of Division is the kind of spirit that prevents UNITY. It is the type of spirit that can come in various forms, but stems from the root demon spirit called PRIDE. It causes disunity and is known to be a Thief of time, effort, emotions and steals people’s Provision for God’s VISION for our lives (John 10:10). God wants a UNIFIED Church. If gossip mongers create strife, there will be divisions amongst the fold which means that the CHURCH will crumble if there is a lack of agreement and unity amongst its members (Amos 3:3 - Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?). If Division can be created to cause disagreements and arguments amongst the members of the Church, then how can the body of Christ walk in the same direction if the members do not agree upon any one thing? This is what will happen if DISUNITY is achieved which is exactly what the Devil wants in order to weaken the power of the UNIFIED CHURCH. I feel like the spirit of the Lord has been wanting me to say for quite sometime ”Church of Jesus Christ, Guard your heart from this DIVISIVE Spirit!”
[ Avoid Divisive Persons ] Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.
The Lord also revealed to me during my meditations that a Spirit of Division is also a characteristic of a DOUBLE-MINDED Man who is unstable in all their ways (James 1:8). The only way to keep yourself from becoming double-minded is by learning to remain humble in all that you do for God and for others by understanding the true meaning of SUBMISSION.
Humility Cures Worldliness
7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
DRAW NEAR TO GOD and RESIST THE DEVIL. It is so important to not allow oneself to be embittered with envy (jealousy),or temptations that lead one to lust, or acts of depravity, anger & hatred which are all sinful behaviours that contaminate a persons soul. Such behaviours stray from the path of righteousness and cause one to act with a divisive spirit that is unable to work with others as a team. This is what happens when one yields to a Spirit of Division. Such persons, cause strife, they cause arguments, they enjoy the breaking up of peoples who once walked in agreement and they are the ones that prevent UNITY by creating DISUNITY.
[ Sectarianism Is Sin ] Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
[ Avoid Divisive Persons ] Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus[b] Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.
16 These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. 17 But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: 18 how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. 19 These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.
Maintain Your Life with God
20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
We are forwarned that those who operate with a Spirit of Division are sensual persons who DO NOT have the HOLY Spirit in them (Jude 1:19). Therefore, we must do what the Bible says in (Jude 1:20-21) and keep praying in the Holy Spirit and in the LOVE of God always pursuing the mercy of God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In essence, the point is to remain humble and practice humility as a way of life. Humility requires us to submit to the will of God in our lives and to heed the Godly counsel of our elders and not to be filled with self-seeking behaviours that seek to satisfy the desires of our flesh. When we yield to this wisdom, we can properly guard ourselves from becoming obstinate, callous, rude, calculative, and deceptive, not only deceiving others but ourselves from the Truth which is in GOD’s Word. The spirit of Division operates in the same way as one who practices False Humility if you reference back to the post I wrote last year regarding The Importance of Detecting False Humility.
Guard your heart, your mind, your spirit and your soul from adopting this type of spirit. It will affect your Character and everything you do. Remain Humble and always abide in the Truth. It is always better to esteem others above yourself and it is even better to give to others rather than to receive from others.
Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.
I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
Such a person operating under the spirit of Division will always seek to esteem themselves higher than others and will always prefer to receive accolades, gifts, prizes (including bribes), and high recognition from others to puff up their PRIDE (this definitely reminds me of SAUL who was jealous of David in 1 Samuel 18:6-8). My dear brothers and sisters, we must avoid becoming such a person. Remain humble and learn what it means to SUBMIT TO GOD and also to submit to Godly counselors who watch out for your soul. Refrain from becoming bitter about any issue that arises in your life, for bitterness will lead you to sin in this way if you do not learn to manage your emotions well, so check yourself before you wreck yourself, and repent to God if you have harboured such traits that are described here regarding the spirit of Division and seek to humble yourself before God to purify your heart and to make it more like Jesus Christ’s heart which is filled with Love, Peace, Righteousness and Joy.
I have two songs here to minister to your spirit today both my J.Moss one called Holy is Your Word and the other called Caught up in Love. May these Songs Bless your Spirit everybody!
In this fast, I’ve been basking myself in uplifting praise songs. It really prepares your spirit to worship and to fight as you pray seeking God for direction and instructions. Worship is a lifestyle and in this Daniel fast, it is the most powerful tool to have close by when you encounter attacks coming out of nowhere. Fix your heart, mind, body and soul towards Jesus. He can protect you from confusion, depression, pressure, anger, and any type of negative thoughts that start to attack your mind. Spiritual Warfare is not a joke. For those that are participating in the 21 Day Daniel Fast, it is imperative that you focus your mind to think positive and wholesome thoughts. Guard your mind and hold it captive to the obedience of Christ Jesus.
2 Corinthians 10:5
casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
Bless your soul with worship when you are feeling low…it’s a mighty weapon of warfare that should not be underestimated especially at this time. Fill your spirit with WORSHIP and it will be so natural by the time you come into a Sunday service to lift your hands and give the Lord PRAISE. Some people can be soooo down that they are unable to lift their hands because something is missing in their lives. It’s worship….don’t wait until Sunday pops by to get your worship on. You’ve got to practice it everyday until it becomes natural to you. Many have this amazing weapon of warfare, but can’t get delivered simply because they aren’t using this weapon of warfare. It’s time for God’s people to rise up and Give the Lord Praise and Worship so that they can see Him move mightily in their lives.
If we want to sing songs of DELIVERANCE….we have to fill our spirits with WORSHIP everyday! If you don’t, then it will be as if you are going into battle without weapons hoping that you will win. God ensures victory when we give Him Praise and especially when we Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. So today, fill your spirit with Worship and fix your attitude about Worship. The strategy of the enemy is always to steal the Lord’s worship so what better way than to distract us from using this powerful weapon of warfare by robbing our attention and focus from God by making us focus on our problems rather than seeking God and seeing God as the answer to our problems. Fill your spirit with songs of Deliverance and surely God will Deliver you out of your trial.
You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah
My Sister Sharon just found this awesome song called Awesome God and I just have to share it here. It’s sooooooo good. The original song is greatm but this remix is just awesome. I pray that it ministers to you today. It’s by Charles Jenkins Remix ft. Jessica Reedy, Isaac, Da truth, Canton Jones – KB4. I’ll also post the original song by Charles Jenkins.
Enjoy these songs everybody and may it bless your spirit today Everybody!
The Original Song
It’s been a busy New Year, more busier than I anticipated, but we are back in the mode of the 21 Day Daniel Fast. My Fast started on the 2nd of January and so far I have decided that I won’t chronicle my meditations daily as I did last year. I found that last year the fast was so intense that I found it difficult to sleep because I was in such a spiritually heightened state that I developed insomnia which I have not been able to get over since now.
These days, I feel the need to just bask in solitude and will type up whenever I have the time my thoughts during the fast. So far there have been many strange things that I have been noticing as of late, but despite all that I have witnessed and experienced and still continue to witness, I can attest to the fact that God’s grace during the fast is amazing. I find that the beginning of the Fast is always the most difficult for many including myself to start; however, as time goes by it gets a little bit easier once you reach your determination level to stay the course.
I find that just by being silent and really just training my spirit to hear what the Father has to say has been a humbling experience. Although I see visions of things happening and things yet to come, there is that sense of feeling overwhelmed by the information that I’m receiving that has caused me to feel like I just need to be silent for this fast. It’s that waiting period when you are awaiting instructions and at the same time taking the time to observe that which ought to change within (yourself) in order to change throughout. I probably am not making any sense right now to others; however, what I will say is that as I sit here contemplating about God’s grace in my life, I can testify that there are times when I have taken it for granted. I think to some extent we all do. Life is seemingly so transient, but when you find the path that leads to eternity, your life never really stays the same again unless you decide to forsake the path.
From what I can see, this year is going to be dynamic and at the same time a trying year as well. I get the sense that there will be difficult tests that each person will have to go through in order to see a new side of God in their lives. Developing spiritual strength starts from developing emotional strength. The one word that hit me at the beginning of this fast that has been disturbing me for quite some time is the word “Treachery”. I’m not exactly sure why this has been on my mind as of late, but from what I understand, all I can think of is that as I have been talking about the David Generation rising this year, it is important to know how one should engage the enemy especially enemies that have a Saul-like spirit. There was a point where David had an opportunity to kill Saul because of his treacherous ways, but David did not kill him even though he may have been justified in doing so. It is so important to NOT create any room for hatred to enter into ones heart. It has a way of contaminating your spirit. This is why we need to make room for God’s grace in our lives. The Grace of God helps us to overcome evil with good (Romans 12:21).
Read about how “David Spares Saul” in 1 Samuel 24-28
This is why it is important to develop emotional strength. I think for myself…this will be the area that I will be focusing on this year since I admit that I can be emotionally immature when dealing with certain kinds of people. I know that when I lived with my grandparents, I witnessed various forms of treachery that it developed in me a sense of taking justice into my own hands because I couldn’t stand to witness injustice. Thank God I never did because God doesn’t want us to do such things. He wants us to allow Him to take care of our enemies His Way, if only we just learn to TRUST HIM. This means….vengeance belongs to God and we have to step aside and let Him do His thing. That’s extreme humility and that’s what we all should develop if we want to be successful in Spiritual Warfare. We usually say things like “the Battle is not ours, it is the Lords” and yet some people take the battle into their own hands and suffer incredible losses because they refused to wait on God to take over and ensure victory. Defeat can be avoided when we yield to the power of the Holy Spirit, so for this year…people, develop emotional strength for the battles that you will face. I can sense that the war is heightening in intensity this year, so I urge all who are participating in the Fast to focus on building fortified walls of HUMILITY. God is your strength and shield, Amen!
Another thing that I want to say is that it’s one thing to be anointed, but it’s another to have the right mindset to handle the weight of it. Even so, God’s Grace is sufficient to meet the need as long as we remain humble. Humility is completely key this year. Also, from my own meditations, the one thing we must understand is that might and power won’t take us to the destination of our destinies. We can only reach our destinies through the power of the Holy Spirit. Not everyone has trained themselves to rely on the Spirit because they are too used to having faith built by their own hands, but if you want something to have “staying power”, you need to let the Holy Spirit build things His way so that whatever you try to build will not be shaken. Christ is the solid rock and He should be our foundation. So for those participating in the Daniel Fast, recognize that this Fast trains you to strengthen your Humility in order to be successful in your Spiritual Warfare. Humility takes you places…pride halts progress.
The Daniel Fast is also a form of Spiritual Warfare to receive answers and instructions from God so continue to meditate on God’s Word and keep it in your Heart when you encounter your battles this year.
I have a song to lift your Spirit up today called Grace sung by Bebe & Cece Winans. May this Song Bless your Spirit. God Bless you Everybody!
I lift up my family, my blogger friends, my real friends and others serving faithfully in Your Name to the throne of God.
Walk with all of us like a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night (Exodus 13:21), Cover us with the full armor of God as it says in your Word:
Ephesians 6: 10-20
The Whole Armor of God
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
Father God it is time for the Year of the Davids to rise up. I pray oh Lord that you will expand our borders and our territories to spread the message of the Gospel in the Year 2013 as it says in your Word:
For you shall expand to the right and to the left, And your descendants will inherit the nations, And make the desolate cities inhabited.
“We have a strong city;
God will appoint salvation for walls and bulwarks.
2 Open the gates,
That the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in.
3 You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.
4 Trust in the Lord forever,
For in YAH, the Lord, is everlasting strength.[a]
5 For He brings down those who dwell on high,
The lofty city;
He lays it low,
He lays it low to the ground,
He brings it down to the dust.
6 The foot shall tread it down—
The feet of the poor
And the steps of the needy.”
7 The way of the just is uprightness;
O Most Upright,
You weigh the path of the just.
8 Yes, in the way of Your judgments,
O Lord, we have waited for You;
The desire of our soul is for Your name
And for the remembrance of You.
9 With my soul I have desired You in the night,
Yes, by my spirit within me I will seek You early;
For when Your judgments are in the earth,
The inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
10 Let grace be shown to the wicked,
Yet he will not learn righteousness;
In the land of uprightness he will deal unjustly,
And will not behold the majesty of the Lord.
11 Lord, when Your hand is lifted up, they will not see.
But they will see and be ashamed
For their envy of people;
Yes, the fire of Your enemies shall devour them.
12 Lord, You will establish peace for us,
For You have also done all our works in us.
13 O Lord our God, masters besides You
Have had dominion over us;
But by You only we make mention of Your name.
14 They are dead, they will not live;
They are deceased, they will not rise.
Therefore You have punished and destroyed them,
And made all their memory to perish.
15 You have increased the nation, O Lord,
You have increased the nation;
You are glorified;
You have expanded all the borders of the land.
So in the Name of Jesus, I decree that God will walk with His Children this coming year of 2013 accompanied by signs and wonders that the world has never seen before. I decree, bless your chosen David Generations with the authority to dispel darkness which is the IGNORANCE of the Word and empower them to spread the Word of God, the Light of Truth which is KNOWLEDGE throughout the nations in every town, city, country and continent as they operate in Your Will following you in obedience to the Call. No longer will You have to say that for a lack of Knowledge your people perish (Hosea 4:6) for the Lord will help us to reverse curses and increase blessings in our lives. Darkness shall flee in Jesus Name!
And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
Expand our borders and enlarge our territory(1 Chronicles 4:10) this Year Father God right into the next as we will be blessed in our comings and in our goings, blessed in the city and blessed in the fields, blessed wherever we may go (Deuteronomy 28:1-14) . May the angelic Hosts of God war with the Children of God in the coming Year of 2013 and may it be so that there are more for us than those that are against us (2 Kings 6:16) as a thousand fall to our left and tens of thousands fall to our right as we grow in maturity and stature with the David-like spirit that runs after God’s heart seeking to establish His will which is to walk humbly, love mercy, act justly in righteousness and peace (Micah 6:8). I decree, we will be victorious in Spiritual Warfare and those that envy the Children of God with a Saul-like spirit will be put to shame.
1 Samuel 18:7
So the women sang as they danced, and said: “Saul has slain his thousands, And David his ten thousands.”
1 Samuel 18:8
Then Saul was very angry, and the saying displeased him; and he said, “They have ascribed to David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed only thousands. Now what more can he have but the kingdom?”
May the Kingdom of God be established by the David Generation rising in the Year 2013 operating in the fullness of the gifts of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:8-10) being able to do exceedingly and abundantly walking in the reverential Fear of the Lord for we know that the Fear of the Lord is the beginning of All Wisdom (Psalm 111:10; Proverbs 1:7; Proverbs 9:10). The Lord will be our Rear Guard,
For you shall not go out with haste, Nor go by flight; For the LORD will go before you, And the God of Israel will be your rear guard.
Then your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing shall spring forth speedily, And your righteousness shall go before you; The glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.
The Lord will prepare the path and the David Generation will be living sacrifices to the Lord that will establish a greater and higher level of Praise and Worship that will make the weak say they are strong; that will make the poor say they are rich; that will make the sick say I am healed; that will make the oppressed say that they are delivered as the nations will witness and come to testify that “Surely, the Lord is among His people”.
Living Sacrifices to God
12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Serve God with Spiritual Gifts
3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. 4 For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, 5 so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. 6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; 7 or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; 8 he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
Behave Like a Christian
9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. 10 Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; 11 not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; 12 rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; 13 distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. 16 Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.
17 Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,”[a] says the Lord. 20 Therefore
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
If he is thirsty, give him a drink;
For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.”[b]
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
With this, the David Generation will follow the Lords precepts and decrees and God will say, “I will walk with them for I shall be their God and they shall be My People” (Jeremiah 32:38; Hebrews 8:10). May the Lord bring a fresh outpouring of His anointing from day to day and may it be poured upon the David Generation that will triumph in doing the Greater things that they shall do in Jesus Name I pray, AMEN!
For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel.
Merry Christmas Everybody!

This is going to be a short post, but this is in my Spirit right now. It’s time for the DAVID Generation to rise up. God is seeking a generation that will specifically run after God’s heart. When you run after it, it doesn’t necessarily mean that your life is going to be easy. I mean look at David in the Bible, Saul who was a psychotic king wanted him dead because he was jealous of David and David at one time also lived in a Cave for a season while God was preparing him to become King. The Sauls will be forced to recognize the divine favor poured upon the David Generation, for this generation will worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth for He seeks such to worship Him (John 4:23).
This type of elevation and favor that was on David was on him since he was a child, because he already lived a life of consecration (refer back to my God’s No Name Brands post) and this life of consecration is what God is demanding for the DAVID generation rising.
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
Because God is Spirit, this generation cannot afford to fake worship, neither can they worship based on their fleshy feelings or desires. There will be no room for Pride in this Generation…Humility will be their robe of righteousness. They will have to worship from deep within them through the Spirit provided that they abide in the Truth.
How does one abide in the Truth? By having faith and believing that the Word of God is true and living it out too. God will ask the DAVID Generation to do difficult things within the next year. Relationships will change and everything in their environment will change for there is a quickening in the spirit to move them into their rightful positions. They should not fear what is happening because that is the only way they will move from Glory to Glory. As my Pastor says, “No guts, no Glory”. The Glory that the Lord is pouring out in this season will land on those that can be trusted with little so they will be given much.
He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much.
The DAVID Generation will walk in the Spirit and will teach others what it means to Fear the Lord. God does not want the DAVID Generation to be afraid of Spiritual warfare for He will train their Hands for war and He will walk with them wherever they go because He will be their God and they will be His People. God be praised!
Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the LORD; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with their whole heart.
that they may walk in My statutes and keep My judgments and do them; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God.
They shall be My people, and I will be their God;
This is what I am feeling in my spirit right now and just felt compelled to share it here on WordPress for some reason.
God bless you everybody!
Boy…I’ve never felt so challenged than the last couple of weeks battling pneumonia… but God is faithful to heal me. I know that Zig Ziglar (November 6, 1926 – November 28, 2012), one of the greatest Christian motivators of our time passed away from Pneumonia this past Wednesday and it makes me appreciate life in a whole new way.It’s amazing how we take life for granted sometimes. A simple cold can take your life away.
Today, I just want to give the Lord praise for all that He keeps doing for my life. I worshiped God today in the morning service at my church, but it was really hard…I was struggling to breathe and I wanted to cry so bad because of the pain I was feeling in my lungs, but no one knows how much worship is warfare on its own. Despite all this, I still gave it my all because when you minister to people and when you minister to GOD…you have to learn to step outside of yourself. Some people during the service were getting healed and delivered. My lungs suffered, but God still receives the Glory. I realize that being a worshiper isn’t just standing there and singing a song….it’s literally a fight of faith even when the odds are against you. People in the pew don’t know your struggles if you are a praise team member in your own church because all they want is to be ministered too; However, as a minister on the Praise team…I’ve come to appreciate my role and have come to love God More and more because worship is warfare…When you love God, you set aside your pride and realize that even as a minister, you are not superhuman just because you can sing, you recognize your fragility and remain humble as you recognize that you still need Jesus to come through for you, even when you serve the King of Kings at such an honorable capacity. I needed Jesus to help me today to praise despite the pain I was feeling in my own lungs and witnessed the Holy Spirit move and minister to people in the congregation as I saw the angels at work with my own spiritual eyes…I can testify that God is completely awesome and I will remain in awe of Him forever.
He gives me strength to do things even when it’s hard when I decide to remain faithful with what I have to do. God doesn’t care about flowery worship….He seeks those to Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.
But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
It’s when you as a worshiper come in communion with the One who is the source of all Truth that makes your worship a powerful weapon that can defeat the evil works planned against your life. Many people prefer worshiping God when all is well….but what happens to the individual when life is taking a turn for the worse?….do you let go of your most powerful weapon which is worship out of your hand and allow yourself to be defeated? No…you should worship even more…even in the worst times of your life because if you let go of that weapon of warfare….your worship will die…and your spirit will die….you yourself,will become your own self-fulfilling prophecy. Never let Go of God. Worship Him…and He will come through for you even in the difficult times. Even if you loose your voice …. pick up a CD and listen to praise and worship and have it in your heart. Worship….is warfare… keep that weapon on you at all times. It’s the one thing that I have in my car that has literally helped me evade car accidents. Worship is a divine gift….don’t allow anyone to steal your worship. When you do that…. you become a slave to self-pity. Don’t get ensnared with that prideful activity.
Worship the Lord your GOD in Spirit and in Truth, and Jesus will make a WAY out of no way for you if you just believe.
I have here two songs by William McDowell called Place of Worship and All I Want is You. May these songs bless your spirit today. God Bless you everybody!
What a splendid Monday we are having. I know some people are grumbling about going to work on Monday but honestly, each day is an amazing blessing from the Lord. If you are reading this post today, then you indeed are in a blessed position. Today My focus is regarding the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins. This Parable is one I’ve read many times, but during my mediation, the Spirit of the Lord highlighted some things to me that I’d like to share with you here regarding that parable.
New King James Version (NKJV)
The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins
25 “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, 4 but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.
6 “And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming;[a] go out to meet him!’ 7 Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.
11 “Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ 12 But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’
13 “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour[b] in which the Son of Man is coming.
This parable takes note of the actions of the 5 wise virgins and the 5 foolish ones. The 5 Wise virgins should be the state of the Church of Jesus Christ; however, some people in different churches are operating like the 5 foolish virgins.
What did the wise Virgins do to be received by their bridegroom versus the 5 foolish virgins?
I know that many read the story in its literal sense, but the oil that is being talked about in the parable is symbolic of ANOINTING…the lamp was their Spiritual vessels. This goes back to the question I have asked in a previous post regarding “How Great is Our God in YOU?”. I stated before that you can only determine how Great Christ is in you by how you cultivate an intimate relationship with Him. The wise virgins knew how important it was that in their waiting they kept the Light of Christ in them burning by renewing the oil to keep the lamp ablaze. Christ recognises the LIGHT shining in the lamps of the virgins because the light produced in these lamps is fueled by the light of HIS WORD.
The 5 Foolish Virgins brought vessels without oil to refuel their lamps and slept and got lazy in verse 5 and allowed the Light of God’s Word in their own vessels to fizzle out. The Oil that they neglected to bring with them so that they could refuel their lamps is the anointing. This is something that could have been avoided and yet by their own choice, these 5 foolish Virgins allowed the Light of Gods Word in their own vessels to be quenched by being unable to re-fuel their lamps with fresh anointing to keep their lamps burning which is an indication of their lack of faith in Christ . Just because the Bridegroom is delayed does not mean that He has denied to meet His bride. By the time the 5 foolish Virgins had realized that they had quenched the fire of their own vessels they assumed that they could rely on the anointing of the 5 wise virgins to ignite their lamps again, but this anointing oil is not cheap.
ANOINTING COMES WITH A PRICE at the cost of perserverance and endurance to run the race that is set before you no matter what the obstacles. Re-fueling and re-oiling comes with a price that these 5 foolish virgins did not understand as something that was important when they neglected to bring with them oil to refuel their vessels. It is no wonder why the 5 wise Virgins who VALUED the anointing refused to share their precious anointing (which was the oil) with the 5 Foolish virgins because if they were so irresponsible as to have neglected to purchase oil to keep their lamps burning in the first place…it could stand to reason that they would not value whatever the 5 Wise ones had left. The 5 wise virgins came prepared to keep the anointing in their lives to remain burning ablaze while these 5 foolish ones had nothing to refuel their faith with and this is the reason why their fires were so easily QUENCHED. They did not VALUE the anointing. If they did, they would have come prepared with fresh oil to keep their lamps burning.
The end result was that they ran to purchase oil TOO LATE while the Bridegroom, who is JESUS CHRIST had already picked up His Bride which were the 5 Wise virgins who had kept the Light of God’s Word burning in their vessels. When the 5 foolish ones came back, they saw that the door was closed and they kept crying to enter in, but the Lord could not recognize them… Why? because they had NO LIGHT in them which is the evidence of FAITH in GOD’s Word. This is why the Bridgegroom says in the twelfth verse of this scripture ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’
Friends….we have to be more like the 5 Wise Virgins…the anointing comes at a price and if you Value it…you will see Jesus and Jesus will only recognize His Bride as one that has the Light of God’s Word burning within their Vessels. This is why we must aim to be VESSELS OF HONOR for GOD. When you Honor God, He Honors You in return by fulfilling that which He has promised. He will return to His Bride…but the question is….Have we (the Church) kept the FIRE Burning????? Remember, it is by our own choice to keep this Fire of Faith burning in our lives. We cannot afford to be like the 5 foolish Virgins that allowed the Light of God’s Word to be quenched because they did not VALUE the price of the Anointing. Anyone who is in Christ is ANOINTED so today…keep that fresh fire falling on you today, AMEN!
Food for thought.
I have a song by Preashea Hilliard called Fresh Fire. May this Song bless you today everybody!
So today I feel like the Lord is pressing me to talk about something that isn’t really talked about let alone thought about because Angels are always left in hindsight when they are an important and intergral part of our Christian walk, especially in regards to SPIRITUAL WARFARE.
Every person whether they are Christian or not are assigned an angel(s) from the day they were born. When we pray, angels are released; when we fast, angels are released and when we praise, angels are released. Why am I saying this??? Spiritual Warfare is always present in our lives whether we are aware of this or not. There is a constant battle in the Spiritual Realm for every persons life regardless of whether you believe what I am saying or not. I think that if everybody had spiritual eyes and could see the spiritual realm in its fullness they would be shocked to see what is surrounding them at the moment.
If you look at the US Presidential elections that just passed this year….the fact that the elections swayed too and fro in a 50/50 almost tied stale-mate…you can tell that the prayers of the American Christians was causing a type of pressure in the Spiritual realm that left people wondering what would be the final outcome. Although Obama won the election, what I want Americans to understand is that “Christians..your prayers were definitely being heard in Heaven at this time!”. Even in the face of a hurricane…there was Spiritual Warfare present throughout the season of the elections. Your petitions throughout the election period released a multitude of angelic hosts to fight forces of darkness (in particular the principalities and powers and the spiritual wickedness in the high places Ephesians 6:12) hovering over the land in an effective battle…
1 Peter 4:8
And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”
2 Chronicles 7:14
if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
In a way it didn’t matter who won…What American Christians need to know right now is that Obama and Romney don’t hold the future of America in their Hands…the Church of Jesus Christ holds the future of America in their hands by their fasting and praying and also in their Praise and Worship.
My Message to you is “Do not stop doing these things until you see change!”
Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
I’ve read many blogs that have been stipulating that God is going to judge America because of the level of unrighteousness present in the land. They are not really far from the truth in a way; however, what I would like to say is that what I’m hearing in the Spirit is that Judgment can be halted by what Christians do right now during this season as we reach the close of the Year of Divine Government 2012.
Apply pressure in the Spiritual realm with your Praise to God. I believe that at the present time…though the state of affairs is that America is still recovering from the tragedy of Hurricane Sandy, don’t stop applying pressure in the Spiritual realm right now. Something is happening….I am sensing that there is a great shaking in the spiritual realm over the land and what is interesting is that the voices of the Lord’s people became more pronounced during this election season than any other one in previous years which was something the world did not anticipate nor expect to see. This year is indeed very different and very unique. It would have been rather fearful to think of what the future holds for America had the Christians remained silent in the face of this election.
Angels are released everytime a believer prays. I believe that in the present time…no matter where you are…you can even pray by proxy…keep praying to see change manifest in your nation. The worst thing is to give up too early when the fight has just begun. When you understand the roles of Angels…you will prepare yourself effectively in your prayer life especially for the new year in preparation for the 21 DAY DANIEL FAST that some churches will be participating in the New Year.
It is so important to understand the role of Angels so here is my list to help you understand what they do for you:
Angels Protect you -
Psalm 91:11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.
Genesis 19:15 When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying, “Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.”
Genesis 28:12 Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.
Angels heed to the voice of God -
Psalm 103:20 Bless the LORD, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word.
Angels are Heavenly Ministers -
Psalm 104:4 Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire.
Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.
Angels are Worshipers and Praise God -
Psalm 148:2 Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts!
But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: “Let all the angels of God worship Him.”
All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,
Angels are Reapers of the End time Harvest -
Matthew 13:39 The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels.
Matthew 13:41 The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness,
So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just,
Angels are assigned to every person when they are born (including unbelievers) -
[ The Parable of the Lost Sheep ] “Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.
The Devil and his evil angels are already sentenced to hell -
Matthew 25:41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:
There is an army of Angels in Heaven that can be released at the command of Jesus when you pray -
Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels?
But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels,
Angels are present with you when you Fast -
Mark 1:13 And He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to Him.
Angels are present when you confess your sins and your faith to GOD -
[ Confess Christ Before Men ] “Also I say to you, whoever confesses Me before men, him the Son of Man also will confess before the angels of God.
Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.
Angels release the Prophetic Word –
19 And he said, “O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong!”So when he spoke to me I was strengthened, and said, “Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.”20 Then he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? And now I must return to fight with the prince of Persia; and when I have gone forth, indeed the prince of Greece will come.
Although this list is no way an exhaustive list of what they can do…I just want people to understand that as Christians…when we go through Spiritual Warfare…it is important that you understand the role that angels play in your life.
I have seen some of them in my life…and sometimes I wish people could see them too, but the most important thing is to understand that they are with you always. Christians are powerful when they believe. Every prayer releases millions to billions of angels each time. If 1 person can put 1000 to flight and if 2 people can put tens of thousands to flight…what say you with a congregation of 100 people????
How could one man chase a thousand, or two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, unless the LORD had given them up?
So today, apply pressure in the Spiritual Realm in your Fasting, in your Prayer life and in your Praise and Worship. Angels are waiting for Christians to be active in their Faith, AMEN!
I have here a song by Micah Stampley called War Cry. I pray that it blesses you today. God Bless you everybody!
I know I haven’t blogged in over two weeks. I’ve been battling a cold which has not been fun, but I’m getting better, praise God.
We all become adopted Sons of the Most High God when we first believe in the message that Christ is our Lord and Savior who died for all our sins and rose again to defeat the works of the evil one — the Devil, in our lives (John 3:16). We take that step of faith and get baptized in water and then the Holy Ghost comes upon us like a fire lit within our hearts as we emerge from the waters of baptism. It is so important to confirm and affirm your faith through the act of baptism even after you have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord over your life. Baptism is that final declaration and act to wash away your old life and come out new in Christ Jesus.
A weekend ago, we had over 100+ people get baptized to affirm their Faith in Jesus Christ at my Church. It was an amazing event and yet there are still many that have yet to take that step.
When you get baptized in Christ, you are actually saying that You Belong in the Family of Jesus Christ’s Church. You are a new creation in Christ, you have become a joint heir in the Kingdom of God, you are a Son of God walking in the authority that Christ gives to you through the Holy Spirit (Galatians 3:26-28). God is AWESOME!!!!!! So if you are a new believer, understand that your next step in your walk with God is to get Baptized. You’ve accepted Jesus as Lord, but baptism is that act in which you make a covenant with God to walk as His child in whom He is well pleased, in the same way God affirmed Jesus as His Son through the same act of Baptism. It is a physical and spiritual act that reconnects you with your Father who is in Heaven as you boldly declare and claim that you are God’s child and you’ve put away your old self and have become a new creation in Christ Jesus. You are God’s Child, so take that step of faith to affirm that you belong to God through Baptism, Amen!
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Enjoy the Song and stay blessed everybody!
I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
[ John Baptizes Jesus ] Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him.
When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.17 And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
I indeed baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”
[ John Baptizes Jesus ] It came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
They said to Him, “We are able.” So Jesus said to them, “You will indeed drink the cup that I drink, and with the baptism I am baptized with you will be baptized;
He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.’
Sons and Heirs
26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Well, although Canada has already had it’s thanksgiving and America is in the season of thanksgiving at such a time where turmoil and tragedy has struck place of the East Coast, I thought it appropriate to put this video up to lift up your spirits. Thanksgiving isn’t a holiday in my books; it’s an everyday affair because each day that we have breath we must give praise and thanksgiving to our Lord. His Mercies are new every morning and we must give the Lord praise for that. There is so much that God has done and in the midst of our troubles we can focus on our problems rather than giving thanks for the very grace we have to live and give what we have from what we have been given. When God gives us gifts, it is so that we can enjoy them. We love the gifts granted to us but our worship must remain on the Gift-giver. So despite all that you are going through, give the Lord praise! He grants us things even when we are undeserving of it. Don’t worship the gifts He gives you, worship Him because He is the Gift-giver.
God bless you everybody and for my American brothers and sister. Have a blessed Thanksgiving season.
1 Thessalonians 5:18

And Hezekiah appointed the divisions of the priests and the Levites according to their divisions, each man according to his service, the priests and Levites for burnt offerings and peace offerings, to serve, to give thanks, and to praise in the gates of the camp of the LORD.
Therefore I will give thanks to You, O LORD, among the Gentiles, And sing praises to Your name.
Sing praise to the LORD, you saints of His, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
I will give You thanks in the great assembly; I will praise You among many people.
So we, Your people and sheep of Your pasture, Will give You thanks forever; We will show forth Your praise to all generations.
Rejoice in the LORD, you righteous, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
[ BOOK FIVE: Psalms 107—150 Thanksgiving to the LORD for His Great Works of Deliverance ] Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men!
1 Corinthians 15:57
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Thessalonians 2:13
[ Stand Fast ] But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth,
saying: “We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty, The One who is and who was and who is to come, Because You have taken Your great power and reigned.
