PSALM 19:7-9 (Message bible)

The revelation of God is whole and pulls our lives together
The signposts of God are clear and point out the right road
The life-maps of God are right, showing the way to joy
The directions  of God are plain and easy on the eyes

God's reputation is twenty-four-carat gold, with a lifetime guarantee
The decisions of God are accurate down to the nth degree

"Faith takes us through a process of understanding that the full benefits of God's Kingdom decree has already drafted and declared you as victorious a conquer and a winner; Faith has already established your victory"

Great perspective and reminder about the true strength of the foundation of the Christian faith.  Check out this link for more on this:



God has shown me that there are going to be events that He will use to remind humanity that His is God our Creator, through his people.

For example in the bible there are time periods that God would use too reveal himself through epic events, such as Creation, Noah, Abraham,Moses, Joseph, Sodom and Gomorrah and so on, as I said, to reveal and remind humanity that He is the one and only God through Jesus Christ.

We are the sounding trumpets of his voice, his image and likeness announcing His presence and his works through signs and wonders, through ministry and crusades where He is able to move in His power and glory!

In these last days he is going to bring out major events not only spiritually but evidence of material things, in which he will put in the protective hands of his people who will give him all the glory. Many of God's people don't realize that He is going to and wants to move in a major way of events to bring full restoration in all areas of their lives, in which everyone around them will also see and share in the experience of the sovereignty of His Grace, Love and Deliver-ance; they will receive just because of the showering of His blessings over flowing out of us onto those around us who will experience, and see the evidence of His glory through us. 

There will be an economic restoration of epic events for his people and through the hands of his people nations will know and be blessed and evident that when the blessings are in the hands of his people and Glory is given to him through praise and honor, all will see that their lands are blessed and restored only come from Him and the Glory of Christ is revealed through repentance and Salvation.

Take hold of these verses from Isaiah 58:1-2, 8-12 (Amplified bible version)

1) Cry aloud, spare not, Lift up your voice like a trumpet and declare to My people their transgression and to the house of Jacob their sins!
2) Yet they seek, inquire for, and require of Me daily and delight externally to know My ways, as [if they were in reality] a nation that did righteousness and forsook not the ordinance of their God. They ask of Me righteous judgments, they delight to draw near to God in visible ways.

8) Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God)
shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
9) Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, Here I am. If you take away from your midst yokes of oppression[Wherever you find them], the finger pointed in scorn [toward the oppressed or the godly], and every form of false, harsh, unjust, and wicked speaking, 
10) And if you pour out that with which you sustain your own life for the hungry and satisfy the need of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in darkness, and your obscurity and gloom become like the noonday. 
11) And the Lord shall guide you continually and satisfy you in drought and in dry places and make strong your bones. And you shall be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters fail not.
12) And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of [buildings that have laid waste for] many generations; and you shall be called Repairer of the Breach, Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.

This is the Word of the Lord, much love in Christ.

A Hard Core Blessing Over Coffee

I recently was out of town and needed my "wake up" juice.  So I immediately discovered my much needed coffee store right around the corner from where I was staying.  While waiting following my order, I spotted rather quickly an individual studying the Bible at a table on his own.  What really caught my eye was his "hard core" exterior appearance.  His appearance was that of the type of person you would never want to meet in a dark alley by yourself.
Here is this man reading out of the book of Kings in the Old Testament. So I cautiously approached him and asked, " So, which king is your favorite?".  He then proceeded to take the next 8 minutes and school me on the connection between what he was reading in Kings and what he was also studying in Acts and how it relates to where our country is at today.  Fascinating.  I would have missed that moment of blessing had my ears not have been opened to the Spirit's leading.  I would like to remind us all at this time to begin each day with a quick prayer of openness to His Spirit's leading and the boldness to act when so moved.  You never know what blessing awaits you when you simply listen to what the Lord is telling you.

Prayer vs. Tumor... Prayer Wins!

When moments like these happen, I just have to shout it from the mountain tops.  The results are in for our DUGOUT bro Raul. His MRI came back and the brain tumor is just not there.  A huge thank you goes out to any and all of you who joined him in prayer. Raul's humble heart since I have known him has been such an encouragement to me. To listen and watch him use this season in his life to grow himself and his family has been amazing.
Sunday night a few of us had the opportunity to pray with Raul and his brother (who also brought some prayer requests). To be asked to join in prayer with any person is such a privilege, and this night was no different.  As we began praying, we knew that God was up to something.  This heart moment grabbed our hearts and moved us together in one accord with purpose and confidence.  
All I can say is that God never stops amazing me.  "Where there is two or more" the Good Book tells us, HE is there with us.  It didn't matter what the MRI results were.   We all knew that God was in control and knew what HE was doing.  That was the greatest moment.  Knowing that even if the tumor was still there, HE was doing His thing.  And Raul was totally at peace with that.  His desire was that his family would grow through this season with him and see HIM like never before and fall in love with Him all over again.
