The Unlimited God


Ephesians 3:18-19 KJV

May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;  And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
These scriptures define a love which is not only unconditional, but without limits. If we are to know the unconditional, unlimited love of God, He has to show us that we must love people unconditionally. Only the unconditional love of people can make us aware that God loves us in the same way, unconditionally. If we love people with conditions, we will only be conscious of a conditional love of God towards us. Only when we love others unconditionally,  and become aware of the same unconditional love of God for us, can we know God to be limitless towards us.  Unconditional is synonymous with limitless.  And only when we know God in His limitlessness can we be filled with all His fulness which is limitless.  If we love people with conditions we only hurt ourselves because we will only know God in a limited way.

My Brain Storming Devotional Time Today With Jesus!


My Brain Storming Devotional Time Today With Jesus.
Brain Storm or Idea Storm with God. Dream big! Jot your ideas on paper.
Reinvent yourself in Jesus. Can’t teach and preach to others something that you are not.
Repent of every known sin. You won’t be totally effective, otherwise.
Must church always have the format of a sermon?
What about alternating sermons with days of open mike and discussions?
Everybody wants to be recognized, heard and given a chance. This is part of the social revolution. What if church led society in this? Will it attract people? Is church supposed to be a spectator event? Is this why it only attracts Christians from other churches.
Teaching church leaders to be Christ centered and cutting edge relevant in the rapidly changing social world. Leaders must study what is happening in the fluid world. No matter what, Jesus Christ will always be the most attractive and relevant person at any time or any generation. So don’t be scared to dream with the Holy Spirit.
No moral issues from the pulpit if we want to attract the market place. Let moral issues be discussed one on one.
Getting out of the denominational tribal mentality into across the board kingdom of God mentality.
A major emphasis on investing into the next generation. Making them an essential part of church activities and ministry. I disagree with separating church into adults and youth. Youth must be part of all ministry and all activities.
Leaders cannot sit on the spirituality and church mountain while neglecting to influence other six cultural mountains. This is called a church ghetto.
What are the cultural mountains?
Spirituality and Church
Family
Education
Government and Law
Media and Communication
Arts and Entertainment
Business and Finn
Leaders who are foundation layers and builders on “Whom the Christian is in Christ?”
We are producing foundation less Christians who remain in bondage and powerless. Home seminars on the Book of Romans and the Identity of Christ are a must.
Teaching and releasing people into ministry situations where they shadow and learn from those who know. Get away from extensive church training and classes before releasing people into ministry. This is old school. Leaders must provide that kind of an atmosphere where people are given opportunity to do the works of Christ. It can get messy, but so what? Just about every wants an opportunity to minister, get words and learn to release the power of God. Make it available. Be a mentor, let them shadow you, called them forth by your side.
Evangelism is a huge priority. But not going house to house or attempting to convert. Rather go to connect in the market place and be an interested neighbor. Church must emphasize connecting in the market place, by being whom you are, not what you are supposed to do as a Christian. Get out and get a feel of what it to be a human who connects with another human being. The Christian who does not connect in the market place and stays only on the church mountain lives a dysfunctional Christianity.
Teaching on generously giving to your local church and missions. The Christian who does not do this will never fulfill the destiny which God has for them. The church is terrible at this and this is why it’s stuck in a rut. Giving to the kingdom of God is not only essential to God’s work but to fulfill your destiny.

What about if this Easter we get Jesus off His Cross?


I taught yesterday on one of Jesus’s Seven Words from the Cross. While I awaited my turn, the Lord suddenly popped a vision before me.

I had to change my teaching because of it.

As with all of the Lord’s things, it was simple, yet powerful.

Jesus was on the cross and dying. Not only did He wear a crown of thorns but had His body wrapped in thorns. His bleeding torso, his arms and legs were bound with many swaths of them. So much were the thorns that I knew the soldiers would not be able to get Him off the cross. Jesus was trapped to it.

Troubled by the vision, I pondered for understanding.

The Holy Spirit said, “The body of Jesus full of thorns is the church. My Son set the church free from pain, and those within her should be walking in and enjoy the freedom which I gave to her. Yet for many in my body, they hold on to their pain, they don’t repent or forgive others, they don’t know the cost of the breakthrough. So what you have in my church is the body of my Son still full of pain and for all intents and purposes still on the cross, forever more bleeding and dying.”

Dear friends, let us remember that Jesus wore the crown of thorns so that you would not have to. Jesus suffered so that you can be made whole. Jesus was whipped so that you can be healed.

It’s not enough to talk about it; God has called the church to be a living example of it.

What about if this Easter we get Jesus off the cross of pain and into the grave so that with Him we can experience resurrection glory, and by it, draw all men unto Him.

God Wants You To Be A Lot More Successful Than What You Want To!


Heb 1:8 But to the Son He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; a scepter of righteousness (euthutes) is the scepter of Your Kingdom.

Euthutes: It means straight, as in going from point A to point B without hindrance, and in the shortest time possible.

Hence euthutes denotes immediacy, immediate results, and going from point a to b in the most effective and efficient way possible.

It is the straightforward breakthrough and is the definition of success.

The scepter of God’s kingdom is the scepter of success.

The scepter of God’s kingdom is the scepter of God’s desired results.

Righteousness denotes making things right.

Jesus came to make all things as correct and right as He is, and how they are in heaven.

The scepter of His kingdom is the scepter of success as He corrects all and makes all things as right as He is, in the quickest, and most efficient manner.

Jesus came to take you from point A to point B in the most effective and quickest way possible.

Jesus was utterly successful in His redemptive work.

Jesus, being God, had this mindset and saw the immediate miracles.

What hinders this process is our ignorance that this is what Jesus really wants to do.

Unbelief, ignorance, disobedience, an unrenewed mind on our part delays this.

Jesus always wants to take us from point A to point B much quicker than what we want to.

I heard that if the Jews would have been obedient it would have taken them two years to get to the Promised Land instead of forty.

The lack of success was not on God’s part, but theirs.

What needs to be corrected or made right in your life?

This is what Jesus died for.

He wants to and can correct all things in your life quicker than what you want to.

We don’t see ourselves as successful, while Jesus does.

We have an image problem. We see ourselves through our image rather than God’s.

Prosperity, and success are intimately intertwined.

Prosperity is the outcome of success.

It’s going from point a to point b as quickly as possible, get the desires results, and thus prospering in everything you put your hand to.

To finish, here is a list of scriptures which uses the word “prosper” in the Hebrew.

Notice in the following scriptures, that the spirit that came on Samson is the spirit of success, breakthrough, immediacy, and prosperity.

Samson did amazing point a to point b feats against the enemy.

This is the success that God wants us move in.

He wants it now!

This same spirit of success came to Saul and he was changed into another man.

It also came upon David when Samuel anointed him.

And this spirit is already in you.

The # 06743 is the Hebrew word “tsalach.

What does this word mean?

To rush, to advance, prosper, make progress, succeed, be profitable, to prosper.

To make prosperous, bring to successful issue, cause to prosper to show or experience prosperity, prosper.

What Is The Right Way of Saying the Lords Prayer?


The Lord’s Prayer in the original Greek is full of commands
I feel that when Jesus gave us the prayer, His desire was for us to use it with the authority that He gave us, and bring results, not only in our lives, but with circumstances which surround us.
None of us understand the immense authority that Christ has given to the church.
How can you use the Lord’s Prayer today?
How can you use it in global situations such as Venezuela?
I hope this helps.

Mat 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

  • I command that your name be established and held in honor on earth exactly in the same way, measure, and manner as it is held in heaven.

10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

  • Come thy kingdom! ( THIS IS A COMMAND!)
  • Done be thy will! (THIS IS A COMMAND!)
  • Exactly in the same measure and manner that your kingdom is manifested and your will is executed in heaven, so be it done upon the earth.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

  • We command that the bread of our necessity, or the bread that suffices for the day, be given to us today.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

  • And release or dismiss from us our debts in the same measure that we release and dismiss our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

  • And lead us not into a place where we can be tempted beyond our strength causing us to do what is evil.
