You have greatness inside of you! You have the power to see lives transformed and God glorified. Jesus told the disciples not to try to do anything for Him without first receiving the Holy Spirit. Being assembled with them, He commanded them, "Do not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, of which you have heard from Me. For John baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." (Acts 1:4-5)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Nothing was made if it wasn't made by Him. He created life and put His light into it. The Light is the source of all life. He created all things by just speaking them into existence. Listen to the stars as they twinkle. What do they say besides there is a God that created Light, follow Him. He will lead and guide you into all Truth. Be like a child that has childlike faith. They believe and receive because they do not doubt.
On Palm Sunday evening the Holy Spirit started saying "something more." God has "something more" for His people and we have been made faithful to stand with Him and release the impartation that comes from His Word of revelation. A special one-time meeting was held Saturday, April 20th to release what the Lord has given us. Below are some thoughts that were included, as well as some that did not get mentioned that I sense will be helpful to those who sincerely desire, need & are seeking "something more."
Sue and I get a newsletter from a stock trading service. They had a recent meeting for their clients and the report is that that one presenter stole the show. He had a new AI generated stock trading technique that got immediate results. The story of humanity is one of temptation for my immediate results. The secret is that something like this happens at every meeting. It encourages existing clients to sign up or more services, a mix of garden-variety marketing and spin on additional value.
I want to share a word that I received today. Nine years ago, there was a popular movie called "The War Room." This film captivated audiences, particularly resonating with the Christian community. The story was about a successful couple named Elizabeth and Tony. They had a beautiful home, a lovely daughter named Danielle, and great jobs. Tony was a pharmaceutical salesman, and Elizabeth was a realtor. They began having marital problems because Tony's job required him to travel often, and it took a toll on him and caused him to become abusive.
In recent weeks, I have felt the overwhelming presence of the Lord and His great love for the Bride. His tangible presence has been on the increase, and I sense His determination to make Himself known. Your spiritual adversary has been causing sensory overload. Aiming to short circuit your soul and spirit, the enemy has tried to overwhelm your senses with negative input in hopes of shutting down your ability to perceive My presence. He knows what's coming and is desperate to stop it.
Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. 1 Thessalonians 5:20–21 I encourage you to test everything you hear with God's Word. I always tell my church to read the Bible for themselves instead of simply swallowing all that any preacher, including myself, says. Be wise and don't just swallow everything—hook, line, sinker, fisherman, and even his boots! Be discerning when you hear something that does not sit well in your spirit, such as when a preacher tells you that "God gives you sicknesses to teach you a lesson."
Most people don't understand the power of words. Do you realize that the things you are speaking out of your mouth are setting the cornerstone of your life? Some words deceive. Some words transmit faith. Think about it. The words you speak can transmit faith or fear. So, when we are talking about your spoken words, we are talking about things that are powerful enough to change lives for the better or worse.
And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you. Philippians 1:6 (AMPC) I wonder how many times we've heard preachers say, "God has a plan for your life." We nod, perhaps smile, and then go on our way. I'm not sure most of us truly believe that—at least, our lives don't reflect that we believe it.
God loves to speak to us. Psalm 85:8 (NASB) says: "I will hear what God the Lord will say; for He will speak peace to His people, to His godly ones." At the right time, the Lord offers a fresh word for us that can bring strength, guidance, confirmation, or correction. There have been countless times when I was famished for a word from God, and when He spoke it came like a drink of cold water in the desert.
