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.

Ge 24:21 And the man wondering at her held his peace, to wit whether the LORD had made <06743> his journey prosperous <06743> or not.

Ge 39:3 And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper <06743> in his hand.

Jud 14:6 And the Spirit of the LORD came mightily <06743> upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand: but he told not his father or his mother what he had done.

Jud 15:14 And when he came unto Lehi, the Philistines shouted against him: and the Spirit of the LORD came mightily <06743> upon him, and the cords that were upon his arms became as flax that was burnt with fire, and his bands loosed from off his hands.

1Sa 10:6 And the Spirit of the LORD will come <06743> upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man.

1Sa 10:10 And when they came thither to the hill, behold, a company of prophets met him; and the Spirit of God came <06743> upon him, and he prophesied among them.

1Sa 16:13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came <06743> upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.

2Sa 19:17 And there were a thousand men of Benjamin with him, and Ziba the servant of the house of Saul, and his fifteen sons and his twenty servants with him; and they went over <06743> Jordan before the king.

2Ch 14:7 Therefore he said unto Judah, Let us build these cities, and make about them walls, and towers, gates, and bars, while the land is yet before us; because we have sought the LORD our God, we have sought him, and he hath given us rest on every side. So they built and prospered <06743>.

Ps 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper <06743>.

Ps 45:4 And in thy majesty ride prosperously <06743> because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.

Isa 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper <06743>; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

Isa 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper <06743> in the thing whereto I sent it.

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.

A Prayer Meeting in Nairobi, Kenya

You Have The Faith of Lazarus, Dont Lie to Yourself!


 Luke 16:20  But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores, who had been placed at his gate,

21  and longing to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. And even the dogs came and would lick his sores.

 Romans 3:27  Where then is the boasting? It is excluded. Through what law? Of works? No, but through the law of faith.

When I lived in Kenya, I heard a wonderful teaching by a friend of mine, Donald Wathome.

We know this story of Lazarus, the guy who was covered with sores and the dogs licked his wounds.

Now, Romans 3:27 tells us that faith is a law.

A law says that under specific circumstances, specific results always take place.

If one breaks the law of the speed limit, and if there is a cop with a radar gun, you will get nailed.

Old Lazarus knew about the law of faith. He lived in it.

His faith level was to receive the crumbs of food which fell from the rich man’s table.

And guess what, that’s exactly what he got.

He received, what he believed for, based on  the law of faith.

God honored his faith. LOL!

We laugh at Lazarus, but most of us are him. We know about the law of faith.

When push comes to shove our thinking is so unlike God’s.

Our faith level is grounded on receiving crumbs.

The Christ who is within us, is lavish, extravagant, supernatural, limitless and able to do all.

To think like Him takes  a massive renewing or overhaul of our mind, by the Word of God.

What  if we thought like Him and had a faith like His?

This is what Christ wants and expects from us.

I got to thank Lazarus for pointing out who I was, who I still struggle with, and who I need to get rid of.

What about you? Are you ready to stop longing for the crumbs?

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?

Do They Throw The Dice In The Bible?


Eph 4:14  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight ( Kubeia / the cube or the throwing of the dice)  of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

Neither would we be carried about by every wind produced by the agendas of men which resemble the deceptive throwing of dice.

Christian love is not a mushy or “mamby pamby” type of love.  A believer is not to sugar coat things, but be gentle and respectful.  Love does not fear man or try to please him if it’s not in the will of God. True love is never “politically correct”, but rather “God correct”. God’s love is based on speaking what is correct about Him.  Love is standing up for righteousness and not backing down from it.

Love is not taking political sides. It is not Republican, Tea Partier or Democrat, but rather upholds the ideals and the person who most closely attempts to run politics, God’s way.

Much of Christ’s love is found in the knowledge of His Word. The Bible is God’s love letter to humanity, the compass for fruitful and joyous living, and the map for infinite life. If we reject it, we bring blindness to ourselves and become in danger of falling into the eternal flames of hell.

Christian love must not just be talked but walked.

Eph 4:15  But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

Buy by “TRUTHING IT” in love;

The “truth”, in this verse is a verb, literally defined as “truthing it”. The believer has the responsibility to manifest God’s ways in every aspect of her life.

Eph 4:14  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight ( Kubeia / the cube or the throwing of the dice)  of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

Literal Greek: That by no means would we be toddlers tossed around by the surge of vigorous waves.

Neither would we be carried about by every wind produced by the agendas of men which resemble the deceptive throwing of dice.

These type of agendas are being devised to work around the person a systematizing or methodology which produces error or ( planetizing/  from planet –to wondering).

The ploy of the devil is to create this type of ingrained thinking in the minds of men.

Any type of rhetoric or philosophies which tempts man to rebel against the Bible is the systematization of error tossing man into the foam of secularism and sending him to hell.

The rhetoric surrounding the separation of church and state is Satan’s deceptive dice throwing.  If he can build a systematic thinking of error in the hearts of Americans which thrusts God out of the governance of the nation, he will send America and Americans to hell.

 17   This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,

The Christian must not conduct his life in the mindset which is focused on temporal, distracted, and frivolous ways of thinking. At the pace which America is going at, countries in East Africa will overtake us.  African children are thinkers, many of them having knowledge of what they want to do.  Poverty has forced them to seek God, read the Bible and develop strong passions for education. America on the other hand is in a crisis of distraction from the living God. The dice playing of the enemy is succeeding in pulling us away into the arrogance of self-sufficiency, and defiant independence from God. We are trading in the knowledge of God for self-centered knowledge of entertainment.  If we are not watchful, we will become the tail or the butt of a nation. Africans will come in to educate and evangelize us.

18  Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

Having the deep patterns of thinking in a darkened existence, they are alienated from the God type of life through ignorance. This ignorance dwells in calloused hearts which have rejected God.

2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

“Sound doctrine” is a medical term defined as being healthy and whole. Only the doctrine of the Word of God can make humanity healthy. A nation becomes sick when it rejects God and His Word

“Endure” comes from the word anaecho, or the “taking of things unto oneself to have.” “What is scary about what Paul writes is his choice of the word “not”.  This Greek negative has two forms. One is the word “me” and the other one is “ouk”. The stronger one is used here, the word “ouk”, meaning absolutely not, under any circumstances.

The verse translates as follows: There will come a season when they will absolutely reject receiving wholesome teaching but after their own carnal desires will heap and collect teachers which will only tell them pleasant things.

4 and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

And indeed from what is right about God they shall turn away their ears and shall twist them upon myths.

The remedy for this malady is in the hand of the Christian believer.

2  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

Proclaim the word; be present and active in doing so, when the season is good, and when there is no season. Convict or expose, rebuke and exhort with every type of longsuffering and teaching.

It is my calling to have a basic knowledge of politics and use it to expose the lies of the enemy for the sake of my fellow human being.

The decisions of political leaders, whether we like it or not, have a huge influence on our lives and the lives of our children. If I sit passively by under the guise that a Christian should not be involved in politics, I will commit a grave injustice to my children.

Titus 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

Holding tight against yourself (grasping and embracing) the faithful word ….that you may have the ability by wholesome and healthy doctrine to exhort and expose the ones who contradict or take a stand against God’s word.

2 Cur 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds 😉

For the destruction of bulwarks; a bulwark is a fortification, a defense, a safe guard or protection. These are mindsets in human beings which are developed over years to protect or justify. A person that has been terribly hurt by parents or a pastor might produce a bulwark of defiant, anti-Biblical and anti-conservative thinking.  Liberalism/ socialist mindsets are protective justifications which shield the person from getting hurt again by these types of people. Christians must love them and show Christ and the church as not legalistic and condemning, but rather as accepting.

5  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God;

And every uplifted thought or thinking which is elevated against the progressing knowledge of who God is.

Unfortunately in our country I see much high thinking elevating itself above the knowledge of God. As the old axiom goes, what goes up must come down.

Titus 1:10  For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:

For there are many of those who are unable to submit themselves to what is righteous.

There are vain babblers who are talking garbage.  Much television is a prime example of worthless and empty gibberish, which bring with it subliminal unrighteous agendas that will instill deceptive knowledge into the minds of viewers.

The word for deceivers is a quite interesting one.  It is the person who releases deception upon the judgment, evaluations and the discernment of others.

Today, in the “main stream media” we see this. There is an attack on the judgments of many distracted and gullible Americans by astute leftist journalists, who mar their discernment, turn them away from what is good and righteous, knock down the foundations of America, and conquer the country from within.

My father would always caution me, “Don’t follow the crowds because they are usually wrong.”

The communist leader Nikita Kruschev said about America, “ we will conquer you from within.’

11  Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.

Whose mouths must be gagged or muzzled, who overturn or overthrow whole families, teachings things which are not needful (and by it, releasing a deceptive grace) for shameful gain or advantage.

It is the responsibility of the believer to muzzle the mouth of those who want to overthrow Christianity by sound doctrine, love and the power of God.
