Blessed To Triumph!

  1 Corinthians 15:57 We are called to be victorious. Through Jesus Christ we have the victory, so God deserves our praise and worship. The blessing of God causes us to triumph. Our true identity is in the blessing of God. Adam (the first man) was blessed like his creator is. He was blessed with the likeness and image of God. Genesis 1:26 He had that image and likeness until the enemy deceived his wife and they both fell. The blessing departed and the first curse came upon Adam, his wife Eve, and humanity. The curse changed the world, and the pattern and order God had put in place. God did not leave humanity without hope. Our creator made an opportunity for the glory and blessing Adam lost to be restored to humanity through the second Adam. Jesus Christ is the second Adam. He is the last Adam. Romans 5:17 The glory and blessing given to man causes us to triumph and prevail, succeed and do well in life. Genesis 1:28 The power of Satan in whatever form- witchcraft, voodoo, sorcery, divin

Intercession: A Vital Key

  Ephesians 6:19 Intercession is standing in the gap on behalf of another person or people in the place of prayer. Intercession is a selfless kind of prayer which benefits another. It is the loving, the strong, and the selfless that usually intercede for others in prayer. It is giving your time, your strength and words to God so that God will benefit another person or people. Selfish leaders cannot inspire selfless prayer! Intercessors are great blessings, its is a great blessing to have intercessors in our lives, families, and churches. No matter how strong your calling is, you need the prayers of others. No matter how anointed you are, you need the prayers of others. No matter how gifted, talented, and endowed you are with spiritual and natural abilities you still need the benefits that come from other people praying for you. It doesn't matter if your calling had the most spiritually dramatic scenario around it when you were called into God's service, you still need the inter

Fight To Win

  1 Corinthians 9:27 Discipline is an important aspect of any sport. Without discipline the indiscipline sportsman cannot be at his/her best. Like a sportsman the citizen of God's kingdom needs discipline to fight and win. The Apostle Paul had a very different approach to ministry and the work of the kingdom of God. His approach to evangelism had to do with his mindset. In the mind of Christ which he had, he paints mental pictures with his words of the sons of God being athletes, being competitive, being fighters and engaging in combat sports. No true combat sport participant enters the fight venue with the intention to loose. Every sportsman who is worth his/her salt competes to win, they compete for the prize, the glory, and the benefits of winning. They compete with the hope and intention of succeeding. 1 Corinthians 9:24 Most athletes compete to make their country, family, and friends proud. The kingdom citizen can also be likened to an athlete, a combat sport participant. Ephe

Kingdom Restoration

  Jeremiah 30:17 Restoration brings honor. Restoration brings dignity. Restoration brings honor. Restoration brings dignity. With restoration, there can be healing and there is a connection between restoration and healing. In the kingdom of God everything is whole. In God's kingdom there is wholeness, freshness, and newness. We receive newness of life in the kingdom of God. Colossians 1:13 2 Corinthians 5:17 In the kingdom of God there is restoration. In the kingdom of God there are signs, wonders, and miracles. This is the realm true and lasting miracles come from. Acts 5:12 Acts 19:11,12 Jesus did everything He saw the Father do. John 5:19 The Father is of the kingdom. So everything Jesus did was of a kingdom perspective. Philippians 2:5-7 The healing, miracles, wholeness, new beginnings, signs and wonders He released to people who were bound and afflicted were from the kingdom. John 3:11-13 Jesus saw people who were blind, lame, tortured, afflicted and with mental health as they
