Since 1966 I have had my private pilot's license. I have also owned 5 different aircraft over my life time and have generally used airplanes for the ministry.  I have also build my own airplane, the Pulsar XP seen here in the picture.  I love to fly!  Perhaps you love to watch videos of people flying.  I have just launched my own playlist on my the youtube channel www.youtube.com/jbrandt4him called "Jerry's Flying Adventures".  I have been flying the simulator called the X-Plane 11.  I highly recommend this great flying tool to experience the great variety of aircraft to fly on my computer and experience the joy of going to various locations around the world and flying many kind of aircraft... at no cost!  Wow!  Would you join me on this adventure and subscribe to my channel and this playlist.  I will email you any new flying video I place in this Playlist.  Thanks for joining me in flight!  I hope you enjoy flying with me as much as I enjoy making these video for you.  Here is the first video from X-Plane 11 that I made and placed in this channel.  An Epic E 1000 flight from Aspen, Colorado over the beautiful Rocky Mountains early in the morning to Rocky Mountain Metro Airport in Boulder, Colorado.  Have fun watching with me.  Here is the first video from "Jerry's Flying Adventures"

Empowering Your Prayer Life - Tabernacle Prayer... Try it!

I have recently discovered a great way to increase my prayer time and effectiveness.  I call it "Praying Through The Tabernacle"!  Every piece or article in the tabernacle expresses a distinct type of prayer.  We enter the outer gates with thanksgiving and praise.  We come the the brazen altar, a place of the blood sacrifice.  There were thank Jesus for His great sacrifice, the cross!  Then we move to the brass laver where the priest washed his hands.  It was polished like a mirror.  Here we declare our "Identification in Christ".  The theme of my new book "I Am" Who You Say I Am. ( You can purchase it on Amazon)  Then we move into the Holy Place through the 5 pillars (God's grace)!  To our left is the candlestick representing the light of the Holy Spirit in our life.  We have the 70-fold Spirit of God expressed in Isaiah 11:1-2.  Celebrate this!  Then across from the Menorah is the table of shew bread.  This is the word of God.  Pray through a Psalm or a portion of the word... it's powerful when you do this.  Then we go to the altar of incense.  We interceed for our family, our church, our pastor, our nation and any other intercessory need.  Then we enter the very holy of holies.  This is where the ark of the covenant is located.  Here we worship and very awesome power of God and worship His holiness with all the host of heaven.  Try this great prayer technique.  It can make your prayer time both interesting and very extended.  

                                                                              Praying Through the Tabernacle - It Works!

You Are A Habitation... Not A Visitation!

Why are we asking the Holy Spirit to come? Inviting His presence is assuming He left us.  Are we asking for a greater presence? I don't get it.  What we should be doing is thanking the Holy Spirit for sealing us and indwelling us. Ephesians 1:13-14 "In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory." 

We are not a visitation, we are a habitation of His presence and glory. So much worship is misguided and even teaching about the Holy Spirit.  You say, "Jerry, why is this so important to you?" Because this misguided truth robs us of the power of our identification in Christ.  How can we fully embrace, "Christ in me, my hope of glory" if we believe we have to invite Him another time to visit us? Why is this misguided truth taught?  Because we are depending on our emotions.  We want to feel His presence. What we need to do is release His presence that is already inside of us! Our emotions can be deceived. Our flesh is so dependent on what we feel.  But God's truth is not based on our emotions.  

Will we feel a release and surge of joy and praise?  Absolutely!  When we embrace the truth of His indwelling us fully and making our "spirit man" totally complete and holy in Christ already, we will often express it with emotional release. But that comes through our declarations and manifestations of His indwelling presence already inside of you. Walking in the Spirit results in "speaking to yourself in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs" continually. Our "spirit man" will literally transform our mind and body in the perpetual joy. Celebrate His presence already inside of you.  He is fully alive in you!  You have been raised with Him in His resurrection.  How great it that!  "If the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead, dwell in you, He will quicken your mortal body, by the same Spirit."  If you really want to feel alive in Christ, began to declare with your mouth this truth and see what happens!  Remember, Christ is already inside of you with all his power and glory.  "Christ in me.. my hope of glory".  Watch this short video if you will please.

                                                                            You Are The Holy Spirit's Habitation....WOW

You Have Authority to Release People from Sin.. ON EARTH!

One of the greatest truths I have learned in freeing other people from their past is the authority Jesus has given us.  Found in John 20:21-22 "And when Jesus had said this, He breathed on them and said to them, 'Receive the Holy Spirit.  If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained."

I have been practicing this for many years.  It all started in a service that I held in Salem, Oregon.  I was standing behind a man in the service and when the leader told us to turn around and greet people, he turned to me. I could smell alcohol on his breath and on his body.  I knew he was an alcoholic if he smelled on Sunday morning.  Then I told him, "After today sir, Jesus is telling me you will never take another drink of alcohol."  I went up to speak and the man ran out of the service. I think he was fearful that I would embarrass him. I felt condemned that I had chased him away.  But not known to me, he slipped back in the back of the auditorium.  When I gave the invitation, he came to the front.  I led him to Jesus and he repeated the sinners prayer.  Then I told him, "Jesus just told me to give you this message.  Your sins are forgiven.  Everything you have done before today, He has totally forgiven.  You are released from your past sins".  He burst into tears with a loud groan. He fell to his knees and began to weep.  For quite awhile he knelt there until there was literally a puddle of tears.  Then he got up and told me, "All my condemnation that led me to drink is gone!"  I went back 8 months later to hold another School of Evangelism in that city and who is sitting in the front row? The man set free 8 months earlier.  He then told me, "I have never taken another drink after Jesus freed me that day you prayed with me."  Let's practice this great authority ON EARTH!

Right Declaration - God is not "With Us", but "In Us"!

Everything Changed at the Cross of Christ!  Jesus Himself said in John 14:17 "The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be IN YOU."  The Holy Spirit was with the disciples because Jesus was with them and He was filled with the Spirit without measure.  But Jesus here announced that the Holy Spirit would be "IN THEM".  To be with us is an Old Testament truth.  The Spirit came and went at will in the O. T.  It came upon men like king Saul, Samson and others.  But this is not true in the New Testament!  We are "Sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise" according to Ephesians 1:13.  This means Christ is now dwelling in us by the power of the Spirit.  "Christ in me, my hope of glory" wrote Paul the apostle. This qualifies us to be the fullness of Christ now on earth.  You His body, the "fullness of Him who fills all in all."  Ephesians 1:23

Why is this truth so important?  Because the indwelling Christ provides all the glory, authority and presence you need to "Reign now in life" now.  This revelation opens up a whole world of both possibilities and realities.  Why does so many worship songs invite God's presence down?  Because these song writers don't have the revelation.  When did the Holy Spirit leave that we need to invite Him back?  But many are beginning to get it.  This will transform the church.  Now we can declare the great "I am's" of the Bible. I am Crucified with Christ, I am buried with Christ, I am risen with Christ, I am seated with Christ and now I reign with Christ!  How powerful is that.  Please read my book on this revelation.  I am believing that it will bring transformation to the 21st century church.  Please watch this very short video, it will help you understand this revelation.

                                    Christ "In Me" not "With Me" - Important

Praying Though the Tabernacle - Makes your prayer life come alive!

Praying through the Tabernacle has greatly increased my prayer time and effectiveness.  Stopping at each piece of furniture as representative of Christ is both exciting and powerful.  I would strongly encourage you to try this great approach.  The Tabernacle of the Wilderness is a type of Christ and beautiful pictures of Christ emerge.  Enter His gates with thanksgiving and praise.  Stop by the brazen altar and celebrate the power of His shed blood. Go next to the laver and see your reflection in the polished bronze.  See who you are in Christ.  You are crucified with Him, buried with Him, risen with Him, seated with Him and now reigning with Him.  Then through the  5 pillars of grace into the holy place.  To your left is the Menorah.  A picture of the light that the Holy Spirit brings to our lives. Jesus is also the light of the world.  Across from the Menorah is the table of shew bread.  The word of God.  Perhaps now is the time to pray through a psalm or part of scripture. Then finally you are at the entrance of the Holy of Holies.  Here is the altar of incense.  The typically the incense altar is for intercession of the saints.  Here you can intercede for your family, your church, your nation, the poor and needy and any other burden you may have.  Praying through the tabernacle has been enjoyable and greatly expanded my prayer life.  Here is a very recent teaching I did on this:  Please take a few minutes and enjoy this fresh revelation.  You can find more great videos on my Youtube channel.

My Book... Now Available on Amazon!

Someone recently asked me how long it took to write my book.  I said "A Lifetime".  I have been repeating the declaration in this book for 55 years of teaching the BIble.  But more recently it became the "Rhema" word to me.  I was getting repeatedly more toxic with sugar diabetes.  My A1C had gone all the way up to 9.4.  Highly dangerous.  I tried changing my diet but it still was not getting the results I needed.  I traveled to Africa for a couple of graduations and visiting some KLU campuses.  I had just been at the dentist and my last visit a couple of days before leaving for Africa, I was in the dentist chair for almost 6 hours.  The stress of this and the airflight to Africa stressed my body.  I began to take on Endemic fluid.  My lungs, heart and body was carrying almost 30 lbs of extra fluid and I began to feel very ill. I could hardly walk across the room. I could not sleep nights because of the sensation of choking on my own fluid. I prayed that I could just get back home to America.  The spirit of death hovered over me like a cloud. 
I began to search the Bible for simple answers to my healing. God brought me back to my declarations that I had been making these many years of teaching.  The Spirit said, "It's time to practice what you have been preaching"! I began declaring the power of "Christ in me, my hope of glory".  A greater revelation of the power of the indwelling Christ inside of me held the power of healing over my body.  The scripture in Romans became a reality to me, "If the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwell in me, He will quicken my mortal body by the same Spirit".  I changed the way I was praying for my healing. I realized that I had to start declaring this truth to my body!  Over and over, perhaps a thousand times I declared, "In the name of Jesus I command my body to be healed.  Christ in me is my hope of glory".  Then everything changed!  The fluid began to dissolve and leave my body!  Not only that, I have lost 40 lbs of fat.  I went from 208 lbs to 168!  I am more lean and feel absolutely stronger than I ever have in my entire life.  I am working out 3 times a week with heavy resistance training. My A1C has gone from 9.4 to 6.4 and still going down!  I now no longer have type 2 diabetes.  
I have now completed my book that tells of this revelation. "I Am" Who You Say I Am. I believe it is transformational... it was for me.  You can purchase the book at:  AMAZON
