Spirit + Word = Creative Life

God's word is dynamite!  The bible says, "The word of God is quick and powerful (dunamis) and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart".  On the other side of the coin the bible says, "The heart is deceitful and desperately wicked, who can know it?"   What a contrast.  We have been led to believe that man is basically good and has a good heart.  Even though the unregenerate heart can produce some inspirational moments, and even do some great deeds, our underlying motive is self centered and self promoting.  Paul makes some direct and powerful statements that leave no room for argument.  One is, "In my flesh dwells no good thing".  These simple direct statements seem to go against popular thought.... that man is basically good in himself.  The overall problem is our nature has come from the first Adam.  We have all been produced after the seed of the first Adam. Bottom line is, WE HAVE ALL BEEN BORN WITH A SIN NATURE.  This is uncomfortable for our mind to receive.  But it is true.  That is why God gave us something outside of ourselves that gives us His wisdom, His will, His understanding.  Jesus made this bold statement, "Thy word is truth".  Now we come to the standard by which we can measure ourselves.  God's unfailing truth given by revelation through His WORD!  We cannot go by what "I feel, I think, I understand" in myself.  What happens if we decide to trust His word?  We are set free!  Again Jesus said, "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free".  I am absolutely convinced that you must read the word, embrace the word to your heart and receive the word of God by faith.  When you do, you began to experience God's thoughts, God's love, God's will and God's presence.  Paul simply said, "we have the mind of Christ". That comes by understanding the Father's word that becomes revealed by the Holy Spirit in our minds.  I invite you to get a greater revelation by listening to the teaching of the Father's heart through His word daily on our KBBN network.  I teach through the entire New Testament verse by verse and chapter by chapter.  Now we have this through our "app"  Just download your android app at Google play store.  Search "kbbnetwork" and put it on the face of your phone.  I will have the windows app and i-phone app in a couple of weeks. So be watching out for these two new apps!

Four Blood Moons - Are They Signs?

Tonight at approximately 2:45 am in the early morning hours EST, the first of four blood moons will appear over the skies of America.  The real significance of these 4 blood moons is that they fall on Jewish feasts in both 2014 & 2015.  They fall exactly on the Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles in both years. This series of 4 is called a Tetrad.  This did not happen in the 1700's or the 1800's, but only in the 1900's. We have had blood moons over the centuries, but never exactly on Jewish feasts until 1948 & 1967. First was in 1948 right when Israel was declared a nation, and then again in 1967 at the time of the 6 day war where Israel defeated her enemies both fast and furiously.  If you have been following my study in the book of Revelation, you know that the number 4 is specifically for this year.  I also have a prophetic word video on how the Lord revealed that to me beginning in December of last year and into the New Year of 2014 that the number 4 was significant.  4 has to do with God's dealing with the earth and His prophetic purpose here. When I received that word from the Lord I was not even aware of the 4 blood moons. The 4 Seraphim around the altar have 4 faces and release the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse.  The 4 angels at the corners of the earth hold back the wind for a short season for judgment to fall.  The 4 angels at the river Euphrates are released to gather all the armies of the earth together for Armageddon. The number 4 is very significant with the book of Revelation. Why does the moon turn red? When the moon is fully blocked in this lunar eclipse it picks up the hue that surrounds our planet and reflects it off the moon. Literally what appears around our earth simultaneously is the total of every sunrise and sunset all at once. What are we to look for?  No one really knows.. but we do know that it will be a significant season for the nation of Israel in the next two years.

Do This In Remembrance of Me!

I have just finished watching my annual viewing of  "The Passion" movie by Mel Gibson.  This outstanding movie production always deeply moves me.  I know there are many different movies showing the crucifixion, but Mel Gibson's always ministers to me the most.  I suggest you take the time to view the entire movie.  I never tire reminding myself of the great sacrifice Christ paid for all of our sins.  Paul said that the "cross of Jesus Christ" was the central message.  Probably the most moving scene for me is when Jesus falls under the cross and Mary, His mother, comes to try and comfort Him.  The scene goes back to His childhood when he fell and Mary picked Him up in her arms and helped Him.  But here in this scene she can only listen to His words, "Mother, I make all things new".  When you understand the Father's plan for the ages and how Christ's blood has the redeeming power to not only save us, but to renew all heaven and earth as a "new creation".  No wonder the two themes of heaven's worship is the blood of the Lamb and His creative power in Revelation 4 & 5.  We will be forever celebrating the power of His blood in our new heaven and earth!  Let's celebrate His awesome offering for sin this week in our Passover and Easter season!

Noah - A New Beginning

Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of man". Jesus definitely tied in His second coming to Noah's time. How?  First, men were simply living and existing daily and not acknowledging Jehovah God as rightful King of their lives. They were "eating, drinking, marrying and making merry".  This was not deep gross sinfulness but simple ignorance of Jehovah God's right to rule over their lives.  Second, was evil that did violate man's divine purpose on earth. "Every thought and intend of their hearts was only evil continually" according to Gen. 6. Man had filled the earth with violence, sexual immorality and breaking the foundational laws of mankind that came with original creation. Third was gross immorality through intercourse of women with angels called "sons of God" in Genesis 6:2. Herein lies the reason God wanted to cleanse the earth of this evil.  Giants, called "Nephilim" were born out of these immoral unions. The natural DNA of man's flesh was being changed into something God never intended. We are going down the same road today.  Toying with God's holy imprint on man's original intent and creation. Ignoring Jesus right to rule over our lives and just living for our own selfish purpose.  The earth will again be cleansed.  This time by fire.  But God has preserved a people for His own name.. the bride for His Son Jesus Christ called the "Church of Jesus Christ".  Jesus said that this cleansing would "Make all things new". This will happen during the great tribulation as man's sins will "pay double" according to the book of Revelation. How can we escape such a judgment?  By allowing Jesus Christ to cleanse your life through His covenant shed blood on the cross.  Noah story is not just an account of cleansing the earth of all evil, but starting again with God's covenant blessing with a "new heaven and earth" wherein dwells His righteousness alone!

Firstfruit Offering - Key to Abundance

We are in the season of some of Israel's feasts.  Coming shortly is the Passover season. The Passover pictures the sacrifical lamb slain and the blood placed over the doorposts. It is this feast that pictures the final sacrifice for sins.. Jesus Christ. It also pictures Christ's resurrection as the first of a new kind of resurrected body from the dead. 50 days later follows the Feast of Pentecost or the feast of Firstfruits.  Firstfruit pictures the offering Israel gave to guarantee the final harvest or 2nd harvest.  It was the first of the blessing of that years harvest as a meal offering, burnt offering, drink offerings and was gleaned and given to the priests. The tithe of the 2nd harvest given in a later feast was given to the Levites.  Why is this important? Jesus Christ is called the "High Priest and apostle of our confession" in Hebrews. The apostolic ministry today aligns with the high priestly ministry of the Old Testament. The key for businesses to come into abundance is to align with credible apostolic present ministries that are reaching the world.  A divine protection comes over businesses that align and bring the firstfruit offering. I can already attest to this working in a big way in one business that responded when I challenged them to make a firstfruit offering and they ended up receiving God's enormous blessing.  Find a credible apostolic ministry that you can begin to partner with. Plant firstfruit offerings in that ministry and watch what God can do. The early church laid their money at the apostles feet and every need was met in the entire church including the widows and orphans! It says that no one lacked anything they needed. That says something about God's provision and the way the biblical pattern works. I encourage you to do what Proverbs 3:9 says , "Honor the Lord with the firstfruits of all your wealth".  God will open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing and your vats will overflow with new wine!
