God Is The God of the Grassroots


I had opportunity to go to a night of worship at my church, Doral Vineyard, yesterday.

Apart from the remarkable time of two hours of worshiped led mostly by young people, these following were my observations.

The majority of those in attendance were young people. I am talking about the twenty-five and under group.

The minority of older people, whom I know, are all young in heart.

There is no doubt that God is working restoration and revival, in the young, and in the old, whose hearts are fresh and young towards Him.

The church can no longer neglect the sweeping movement of God with young people and simply assign them to their youth groups, isolating them from so-called “adults.” This latter is part of the old wine skins which God is disposing of.

Secondly, many who were in attendance last night, I have never met.

I discovered that these people attend different churches.

This is the same grassroots movement which we witness in NY.

God is gathering “on fire” people from different churches, who step out of their demarcated church walls for corporately worshiping and seeking the Lord and then the lost.

These people are not leaving their churches, but they are departing from the routines of their specified church lives to come together for God’s greater purposes. The days of this is my church, and this is your church, if it keeps the body isolated, are over.

This grassroots movement God is causing to pop up everywhere.

Those who have ears to hear, let them do so.

Finally, my wife Mary had an apostolic word of God’s strategy for South Florida.

One of the difficulties of evangelizing Miami Dade County is that she is “the city of high walls.”

God gave me this word 17 years ago. It has proven so true.

NYC is easier to evangelize than Miami.

Many New Yorkers do not drive and are forced to get to know each other over time, in the streets.

But Miamians live in their ac homes and ac cars.

You never see them on the streets, because of humidity and heat.

They go from townhouse, to car, to job, to Starbucks, to job, to car, and back to their townhouse.

Many come from South America, either fleeing oppression, or trying to make money.

If people are not in the streets, evangelizing becomes difficult.

This is the problem of Miami.

Once again I say, that NYC is easier to evangelize than Miami.

But my wife’s word is timely and strategic.

The Lord showed her a grid of lights all over South Florida. These grids represent grass root groups like the one we had yesterday. Folks from different churches who are coming together for the express purpose of loving the Lord and seeking His face.

Wherever these groups were coming together on the grid of S Florida, God was digging wells. There came a time when these wells overflowed.

In a flood, everything that is standing is washed away, and every high wall that people in Miami have built to protect themselves, will be washed away.

I find this to be one of the most important words of God’s strategy ever given to Florida, for it involves, not one man, or one church, but the body of Christ, which is precisely what God is doing, globally.

Let us catch God’s fast train into revival land, and not be left at the train stations of our isolated church ghetto routines.


Who Do You Cater To?

I am adding to what Graham Cooke said. God is through with the old man, for he was put to death, buried and rotted away, out of sight and out of mind. God is dealing solely with the new man, the new human in you, Christ Jesus. I like the terms, catering to, ministering to, providing for, focused upon, brooding over and even pampering, ONLY and EXCLUSIVELY, to this new man. This new man is regenerated in glory. From within you, the glory to God in this new man changes your outside. For many years I catered to a corpse and tried to set him free, when a corpse is free because he is dead. Are you still focused on the corpse and trying to bring him back to life to set him free once again? Turn your energies upon the new man in you, Christ Jesus, for God did, over 2000 years ago.


The 10 Dollar South Florida Event! The How To Obtain From God 1 Day Seminar!

The Christian life is one depositing from God’s heavenly vaults into our spiritual bank account so we can obtain here and now.

• The church does not understand the process of how to obtain from God

• This one day seminar will teach you how to obtain what God has for you.


A. What is revelation?

Eph 1:17 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,

• Everything you need to obtain from God is hidden in Christ who is hidden in you in a mystery form.


B. What is wisdom?

Mar 4:11 And He said to them, To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God. But to those outside, all these things are given in parables

• The uncovering of a mystery containing something you need to obtain from God.


C. What are patterns or blueprints?

Heb 8:5 who serve the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was warned of God when he was about to make the tabernacle. For, He says “See that you make all things according to the pattern shown to you in the mountain.”

• As God uncovers a mystery He creates a spiritual pattern, schematic, or blueprint outlining the steps you need to take in order to obtain from Him.


D. What Are Imaginations?

2Co 10:5 pulling down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought into the obedience of Christ;

• The place where these revealed schematics, patterns or blueprints are transcribed to.


E. What is counting, numbering or accrediting?

 Rom 4:5 But to him not working, but believing on Him justifying the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

• From your imaginations these patterns are counted or accredited by the process of faith by a heart which continually believes.


F. What is believing?

Php 3:12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect, but I am pressing on, if I may lay hold of that for which I also was taken hold of by Christ Jesus.

• The church does not understand what true believing.


G. What is Faith? Faith is a law!

Rom 3:27 Then where is the boasting? It is excluded. Through what law? Of works? No, but through the law of faith.


H. Moses and Bezaleel are our Biblical model for obtaining from God.

• They are the fathers of wisdom and prudence


I. Wisdom is the uncovering of a mystery containing something you need to obtain from God.

Prudence: Takes the wisdom of God revealed as a spiritual pattern in our imagination and executes it step by step, and making it into a reality.

• He then delegates Bezaleel to execute them meticulously from these patterns, thus building the desert tabernacle:


J. The Results

Exo 40:34 And the cloud covered the tabernacle of the congregation, and the glory of Jehovah filled the tabernacle.

• The work must be totally completed in order to obtain from God

• Most of the church fails at this stage!


K. Working out and thoroughly accomplishing!

Eph 6:13 Because of this, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having accomplished all things, to stand.

Php 2:12 So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;

• To obtain by wisdom and prudence no stone can be left unturned

• Most of the church does not do this and it fails to obtain.

What Is One Of My Favorite Words?

Charizomai is one of my favorite Bible words.

It describes benevolence, and something freely given.

Its gracious, kind, and merciful giving

It’s extravagant, lavish, generous, and abundant giving, without strings attached.

The giver gives more and more and more.

This is God’s nature.

This is His mentality.

It’s interesting to see, that the forgiving of sins is on that list.

God has extravagantly and abundantly  forgiven us and so must we of others.

The healing of diseases is also on this list.

God has abundantly and lavishly and generously healed our diseases.

Our faith must arise to God’s level of healing.

Enjoy this one of my favorite word as you read the scriptures.

Lu 7:21  And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave (charizomai) sight.

Lu 7:42  And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave (charizomai) them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?

Lu 7:43  Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave (charizomai) most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.

Ac 27:24  Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given (charizomai) thee all them that sail with thee.

Ro 8:32  He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he <5483> not with him also freely give (charizomai) us all things?

1Co 2:12  Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given (charizomai) to us of God.

2Co 2:7  So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive (charizomai) him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.

Ga 3:18  For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave (charizomai) it to Abraham by promise.

Eph 4:32  And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving (charizomai) one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven (charizomai) you.

Php 1:29  For unto you it is given (charizomai) in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

Php 2:9  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given (charizomai) him a name which is above every name:

Col 2:13  And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven (charizomai) you all trespasses;

Col 3:13  Forbearing one another, and forgiving (charizomai) one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave (charizomai) you, so also do ye.

How does Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Delivers us from Religious Legalism?

Like 8:11   Now it came to pass afterward, that He was traveling through every city and village, preaching and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom of God, and the twelve were with Him,

2  and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities; Mary called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out,

3  and Joanna the wife of Chuza, a supervisor of Herod, and Susanna, and many others who were ministering to them from their belongings

I was intrigued by these scriptures after my wife pointed them out.

What can we glean about Jesus from them?

  • The twelve disciples were with him.
  • There were also a number of women whom Jesus had delivered and healed.
  • I checked out the original Greek, and the “many others” in verse three,  is in the feminine tense.

So the picture of those with Jesus was generally  twelve male disciples and a number of women.

  1. The first point is the importance of investing in other’s lives.

Those whom are most apt to follow you are those whom you sacrificially invest into their well being.

Give, and it shall be given back to you. Jesus is not simply talking about money.

Make it a point of investing freely into other’s lives. Don’t be selfish and just think about yourself. You will be blessed by God.

2. The second point is that most of Jesus’ financial supporters were women.

  • In our own ministry, the majority of supporters have been women.

As a matter of fact, in our global travels, the majority of supporters and attendees are women, regardless of country.

  • I thought that God  had called the men to take the rein of leadership?

Where are they?

  • The lack of male leadership in the church is a global crisis which paralyses it.

We can’t blame the attack of the devil on these poor men.  I’ve  heard this before. Nonsense!

The devil can only attack when a door is opened to him. The bottom line with many  Christian men is one of blatant disobedience to God.

Men of God, you need to repent, and repent now!

Most people whom we counsel are godly women, who have husbands dragging their feet for Jesus. These women suffer immeasurably, hoping for their men to  one day join them in the ministry.

How dare we say that women don’t  belong in the pulpit, when they assume the load of the churches’ ministry?  This is the hypocritical and must be stopped!

3.The third point is that of Joanna, the wife of Chuza.

Joanna, is a most interesting figure. Her presence, theologically challenges us.

  • Chuza, was one of the premier officials in Herod’s administration.  He was his trustee, administrator, or manager. Chuza could have administered Herod’s royal properties or even the head of his estate.
  • Thirty years earlier, another Herod had attempted to kill Jesus. Was that the father of this Herod, or an uncle?  I don’t know.

It’s interesting how God works. Whereas one Herod tried to exterminate Jesus, now a top official in another Herod’s administration is one of His biggest financial supporters. God is funny. It’s astounding how He turns the tables upon His enemies.

4.Point four. I assume that Joanna was wealthy?

  • So the wealthy were financially supporting Jesus? Wow, what a concept!

How many times do we pastors get dragged through the ground for having wealthy people give into our ministry. Some want us to be paupers in poverty, barely making it, and suffering for Jesus. We get accused of milking the flock, or of being lazy, or of doing nothing, while taking people’s money. Such a double standard! LOL!

Not only did Jesus have a wealthy person financially supporting him, but many other women which ministered to his needs from their possessions! Did I hear the word, many?

  • We pastors are indicted by others of not working or not having a real job.

Somehow the notion of traveling globally, counseling and praying for people, teaching the Bible or writing books, is not a job.

Full time ministry, they say, is not a real job!

  • But look at Jesus! He was in full time ministry. He did not have a “ nine to five job.”. He had a number of women  monetarily supporting him, because most of those whom he ministered to gave him nothing. And so it is with us today.
  • So when you are tempted to religiously  harp upon your pastor, bite your tongue and meditate on the story of Joanna,  the wife of Chuza!

Many blessings!

Most of these women are pastors. On a trip that we took to Kenya in 2010. Where are the men?

How Responsible Would You Make Yourself For Another’s Life

 2 King 4:38  And Elisha came again to Gilgal: and there was a dearth in the land; and the sons of the prophets were sitting before him: and he said unto his servant, Set on the great pot, and seethe pottage for the sons of the prophets.

39  And one went out into the field to gather herbs, and found a wild vine, and gathered thereof wild gourds his lap full, and came and shred them into the pot of pottage: for they knew them not.

40  So they poured out for the men to eat. And it came to pass, as they were eating of the pottage, that they cried out, and said, O thou man of God, there is death in the pot. And they could not eat thereof.

41  But he said, Then bring meal. And he cast it into the pot; and he said, Pour out for the people, that they may eat. And there was no harm in the pot.

There was a famine in the land of Israel.

Food was so scarce that there was not even enough to make a stew for the school of the prophets.

One of Elisha’s disciples went out and fetched wild vegetables.

Unknowingly one of these plants was extremely poisonous.

When it was time for the prophets to eat, they realized  the toxicity of the stew.

Elisha heard the Holy Spirit, tell the prophets to throw flour into the soup and then eat it.

By that act of faith, coupled with the Word of the Lord through Elisha, the stew became edible.

I have struggled with this story!

Would I have the faith to hold myself responsible for the lives of a number of people solely on what I believed I heard from the Holy Spirit?

What if I heard wrong? What if my discernment was off and many died?

Lives tragically cut off at their prime.

Wives suddenly bereft of husbands and children of their dads.

How could I live with my conscience?

How could I look into these people’s faces?

Yet Elisha had learned the invaluable lesson of having a sharp awareness and full confidence in the voice of the Lord within him.

The growth of the voice of the Lord in us has no shortcuts.

It takes uncompromising obedience which forces us to step out in faith time and time again until we learn to recognize and live solely by that voice.

It also takes the working of God’s holiness within us, which is birthed out of a very intimate relationship with Him.

Without purity of heart we will not see the Lord Jesus living inside of us.

Purity is the result of much prayer and a deep knowledge of the Word of God.

The Lord wants each of us to learn to operate solely by His voice just like Elisha did.

The greatness of the man or woman of God is found in how far they restrict their lives solely to the voice of the Holy Spirit.

Could you do what Elisha did?

Could I?

I don’t know.

Yet Elisha was a man just like you and me.

If A Christian Were a Pickle Why Would Life Be Splendid?

I am gathering notes for my upcoming E Book, The ABC of Living in the Spirit.

I wrote this many years back. I find it so good; I needed to share it with you.

It just shows that if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus you already have everything you need.

The problem is one of entering and living in the new identity, existence or being which are already ours.

The one who fights us from entering in is our double mindedness.

Or as motivational speaker, Loly Daskal says, “Our own contradictions.”



 Gal 3:27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ( submerged into the domain, sphere, or world of Christ’s influence and sovereignty ) have put on Christ (now wear Christ, whom as clothes which totally cover us, influences and affects back through us to conform us into His image.)

I once read an excellent example of Biblical baptism.  In the days of Christ there was a recipe to create a “pickled” vegetable.  It was said that a vegetable was BAPTISED into THE LOCATION or SPHERE of a vinegar solution.  After a while, the vinegar WORKED INSTRUMENTALLY BACK through the vegetable and “pickled” it.

Tofu, likewise, acquires the taste and texture of any food that it is baptized into.

We can say that with whatever food the tofu is BAPTISED INTO, it is INSTRUMENTALLY influenced back by that food to make the tofu like it.

At a meeting several weeks ago, I saw several visions of the earth, as a globe. The Lord told me, that this was the world of the Holy Spirit, and that we need to live in it.

During the worship time I dedicated myself to going deeper into the world of the Spirit.   I suddenly saw within this world the availability of everything, as all solutions to all human needs were place and positioned in different places along the sides of this world.

By the availability of everything, I mean that all things are possible, because all things that pertain to humanity were positioned in God’s reconciled, whole, and restored state.

I saw that every disease could be healed, and every problem had an answer, because there was no disease, but only the completed healing of it, in the world of the Spirit.
