Get Revelation

Therefore I also, after I heard of yoru faith in the Lord Jesus and yoru love for all the saints, do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. Ephesians 1:15-16 NKJV. The apostle Paul knew firsthand the importance of revelation knowledge from the Lord, which is why he placed such importance on it in his letter tot he church at Ephesus. When God reveals to you a truth from His Word, that revelation always causes you to become positive. Revelation knowledge of the Word of God determines how you react to the situations you are currently facing. For instance, do you really believe that… You are special to God?You are God’s most prized possession?You are washed by the blood of Jesus from every sin, weakness, and failure?You are holy, blameless, and above reproach in His sight?You are crowned with glory and honor?You have authority over every circumstance in your life?God wants to turn every adversity into a victory?God wants to turn every stumbling block into a steppingstone?God wants to give you good things? If you don’t have a revelation of a particular Bible truth, then you can’t walk in it. Mental assent to truth is not enough. Without revelation knowledge, you will always live way below your privileges in Christ. Revelation knowledge comes through reading and meditating on the Word of God, and then choosing to believe that what God says is true. Once you...

What Is The Truth?

So that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will 2 Timothy 2:25-26 NKJV. The only thing that can break the chains of bondage is the truth. And the only valid source of truth is God’s Word. The enemy has kept the body of Christ in darkness by blinding the hearts and minds of God’s people to the truth of who they really are in Christ: “Whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them” 2 Corinthians 4:4 NKJV. The enemy wants to put blinders over your eyes so that you cannot see who you really are in Christ. One tool the enemy uses to create blinders is religious tradition. Jesus said religious tradition make the Word of God of no affect in one’s life, Matthew 7:13. The only thing that can expose the enemy’s blinders and set you free from any bondage you are experiencing is the truth. The definition of truth is “the highest form of reality that exists.” Therefore, the Bible is the highest form of reality that exists. Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free” John 8:32 NKJV. It stands to reason that the more truth you know, the greater freedom you will enjoy. God is not hiding truth from you; He has placed it on every page of His...

Listen & Obey

If you will listen diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, being watchful to do all His commandments which I command you this day, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. Deuteronomy 28:1 AMP. Have you noticed some believers seem to walk in the fullness of God’s promised blessing on a continual basis while others, who love him no less, seem to struggle through life, never quite walking the the freedom they desire? I believe the difference in these two groups can be summed up with these three words: listen and obey. Walking in God’s blessing really is this simple, yet there are those who have never made the commitment to follow His instructions. God wants to bless you and empower you to prosper in every area of your life: Spiritually In your mind and emotionsIn your bodyFinanciallyIn your relationships with others. As you listen diligently to the voice of you God and do what the Word tells you to do, blessings will overtake you. God will give you practical instruction on how to prosper in every area of your life if you will listen to Him. The Holy Spirit inside you will teach you and empower to you to do what He says. He will teach you to have a dynamic and intimate friendship with the Father.He will teach you how to take care of your body.He will show you how to be a better worker, and He will cause you to be promoted.He will give you ideas and direction on how to manage your business.He will teach...

You Are Free From Bondage To Sin

For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace Romans 6:14 NKJV. Oftentimes, Christians find themselves in bondage to things they know are neither good for them nor pleasing to God, but they can’t seem to stop. Whether the bondage is to gossiping, addictive behaviors, or ungodly relationships, each person shares the same struggle to be free. If you are held in some sort of bondage, I have good news for you: Jesus has already delivered you and set you free! The Bible says He “gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father” Galatians 1:4 NKJV. If you have made Jesus Christ you Lord, you are no longer under the law, rather you are under grace. God’s grace empowers you to do the right thing, to turn from the things you know are destroying you. Grace is the process by which God changes you from the inside out, releasing His power through your body, enabling you to walk according to His Word. your part in the process is to believe what His Word says about you. If you believe you are in bondage to a temptation, you will be in bondage to it. If you believe a temptation has power over you, you will be controlled by it, if you fear you will continue to give in to the same temptation, you will receive what you believe. Remember this: no one and no thing can make you do anything. That temptation you struggle with has...

Live According To The Word

If you really want to live in victory and success, no matter what comes your way, you will have to base your life on the living Word of God. Jesus said in John 17:17 that God’s Word is truth. Truth is the highest form of reality that exists. The struggles you face may be fact and truthful, but the Word of God is the highest authority and truth. Regardless the challenges you face of what your feelings say, you must decide if you will base your life on temporary circumstances or the eternal, never changing Word of God. The truth is God supplies all your need according to His riches in glory, your are more than a conqueror, you are healed by the stripes of Jesus. Make the decision to live according to the Word of God today, Find out what the Truth says about your life, stand on it, and you will experience victory and success. Confession: Father God, I make an unwavering decision today to live my life according to Your Word. I will act based on the truth that your Word is true in every situation I face today. I Thank You in Advance for victory in every area of life. Author: Jerry...

Right Attitude Principles

You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had Philippians 2:5 NLT No one can make you have a positive attitude, you are the only one who can make that decision Remember that God’s Word is the foundation of a right mental attitude. study these principles and allow them to become strong on the inside of you. A right mental attitude is more than wishful-thinking. It is actually facing each day with a positive expectancy based on God’s Word.A right mental attitude is having a proper understanding of the problems you face, their source, and knowing how to approach them with God’s Word. You need to know your enemy and how he operates. You need to know his weaknesses, I’ll tell you two of them: He cannot stand it when you praise JesusHe cannot stand the Word of God.A right mental attitude enables you to possess peace, calmness, self-control and the determination to win no matter how difficult your situation may seem.A right mental attitude demands that you drive out all negatives from your consciousness and focus on God’s Word. Confession: I choose to have a good attitude and expect the best today knowing that God is good and He is for me. Author: Jerry...

Who Are You?

For You did form my inward parts. Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days (of my life) were written before they ever took shape, when as yet there was none of them. Psalm 139:13,16 NKJV People all over the world as this question: Who am I? They are searching for both their individual identity and the purpose for their life. I’ve encountered believers who’ve lost sight of who they are simply because of something others have said to them. Things like “you’re a failure … you’re a nobody … you’ll never succeed.” We are told in Proverbs 23:7 that “as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” In other words, you will be the person you believe in your heart to be. And the only valid source for determining your identity is the Word of God. Jesus was quoting the Word of God when He declared, “He has anointed Me to preach the gospel … to heal the brokenhearted … to set at liberty those who are oppressed” Luke 4:18. Just as Jesus found His identity in the Word of God, so too will you. The fact of the matter is this: you are who God says you are. Your talents and abilities don’t determine who you are. Your job of your social status doesn’t determine who you are. Your family and friends don’t determine who you are. Your mirror doesn’t determine who you are. Only God determines who you really are. However, nobody else — not even God — can determine whether the real you will ever be expressed in...

You Are Justified

(ALL) are justified and made upright and in right standing with God, freely and gratuitously by His grace (His unmerited favor and mercy), through the redemption which is (provided) in Christ Jesus. Romans 3:24 AMP. I want to focus on two particular words found in the scripture verse above: justified and redemption. The word justified is not one we commonly use in every day English, but the essence of its simplest biblical definition is “just as if I’d never sinned.” In other words, because of the redemptive work Jesus did at the cross, God now looks at you just as if you’d never sinned. The word redemption means “to buy back.” Just as an individual who was kidnapped is bought back from their captor with ransom money, so Jesus bought you back from the hands of the devil with His shed blood. The Bible says, “Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin” (Romans 4:8 NKJV) and God is “the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus” (Romans 3:26 NKJV). Never again will your sins be counted against you. Receiving this justification and redemption does not depend on your performance: it depends on your faith in Jesus and the fact that you are “in Him.” And the good news is, because you are in Him, you are justified! Confession: Thank You, Father, for treating me just as if I’d never sinned. I cast down all thoughts of condemnation, and I meditate instead on the free gift of redemption that is mine because I am in Christ Jesus. Author: Jerry...

Expect Favor and Success

Not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection. Philippians 3:9-10 NKJV. When you believe you are who the Word says you are, you will expect every adversity to turn into a victory. Only when you see yourself the way God sees you, will you begin to expect success. As long as you are looking at your won merits, you will have an element of self-doubt. You will question whether God is going to show you favor in life. What you have done and who you are has nothing to do with favor and success. That is good news, because without Jesus we are nothing! God’s favor and God’s honor can’t be earned. you didn’t earn His favor, you didn’t earn His honor, Jesus earned it for you! Even though Jesus earned it for you, it is still your responsibility to walk in it by faith to see God’s favor become a reality in your life. God sees you as righteous, above reproach and worthy to be blessed with success. He delights to crown you with glory and honor. why wouldn’t He give you abundant favor and success in life? Believe who the Word says you are. See yourself as He sees you. Then you’ll expect every adversity to turn into a victory. You’ll expect success today. Confession: I have favor and success, not because of my works, but because I believe Jesus made me righteous and earned them for me....

Just Passing Through

Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man whose strength is in You, in whose heart are the highways to Zion. Passing through the valley of (Baca)…Psalm 84:5-6 AMP Psalm 84 talks of a place called the Valley of Baca. The Hebrew meaning of the word baca is “weeping, tears, or misery” — something we can all identify with. While times of sorrow are a certainty in life, the Valley of Baca is not a place where we are to linger. It is not a place where we should establish residence. It is a place that we are to pass through. zo fpm I don’t know what you may be going through today; I don’t know the difficult place you may be in. But whatever it is, you don’t have to stay there. you can choose to pass through your valley. Verse 7 of this Psalm goes on to say of those who pass through, “They go from strength to strength (increasing in victorious power).” Any time I find myself in the Valley of Baca, I purpose to keep my eyes on Jesus and stand firm on the World of God. I can do this because I know I’m only passing through. I know that when I get to the other side, I’m going to increase in victorious power. Anything the enemy may be trying to do to me is only going to add to my glorious testimony — glory to God! Confession: I am strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. I fix my eyes on Jesus as I stand on the World...
