Live Out of Abundance and not Need


Col 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

Dwelleth, is defined as something which abides in comfort and rest…. such as being “at home.”
The world fullness is the word pleroma.

Fullness, is defined as the identity which makes something to be what it is in this universe different from something else. Fulness are all the ingredients and attributes which make up an object and make it different to any other object. Christ IS ALL of the attributes and ingredients which makes God to be God, comfortably dwelling in us. He then has the ability to make God visible or manifested to us and in us. This is what it means “the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”

10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

Verse 10 literally means, that you are filled with this fullness of God in you, once and for all eternity.

We do not come from a position of having to get the victory. The victory has already been won. It must simply be revealed. We must live from the place of having the won victory revealed in us.

We do not come from a position of having to get the riches of God. We already have all the riches. They simply need to be revealed.

Likewise, our identity as the fullness of God completely formed. dispersed, and filled within us must be simply revealed by our asking God. We must learn to live out of a place and alignment that all that we need, all the victories, and all the riches, have been already completely given to us, and we are already filled with them and they remain full in us forevermore. What we need is revelation, not more things.

Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

The words “who hath blessed us” are in the accusative case, the grammatical case of effect or a final goal.

For simplicity’s sake let me say that the goal or the funneling power of all of God’s blessings is the church. You and I are the receptacle. God has funneled all that He is and all that He has into us. Every fullness and completion of every blessing, and riches ,and benefits have already been funneled into you and me. We are in a state of being completely full, and satiated and saturated with all that we need. We just need to get tons of revelation. This is our new identity and this is what we must align every imagination and thought with. We must work out of a state of fulness.

This is the second breakthrough, to be molded into this new man.

Ro 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

The USA and the Wheelbarrow


COULD THIS BE SANDY? I am not sure.

This vision was given to me on April 2011.

I just got up from my knees after praying for the USA. I was startled by the vision that God gave to me. It was a vision of America as a wheel barrow. When a wheel barrow is full of dirt a man takes it to a designated place, lifts it up by its handles and empties out the dirt. The effect of the wheel barrow lifted up diagonally and the counter effect of the earth’s gravity on the dirt inside efficiently causes all the dirt to empty itself out.

I saw the strong hands and arms of the Lord lift up the USA high from its northeast region such as from Washington DC to Maine. The country was hinged down in California so that it could not be moved from its place. When the Lord lifted up the northeast part of the country the rotation occurred diagonally around that hinge.

Everybody who did not have a living relationship with the Lord Jesus just slid down violently towards California, just as dirt is poured out of the wheel barrow. It was impossible for them to hold on to anything they had.

Those that were in the Lord but had a shallow, lukewarm, and worldly relationship were given a horizontal pole to hold on to. They had to grab on to the pole in dear life suspended horizontally in the fierce wind of the uplifting motion. The wind of action of the Lord pulled all of their clothes from them and they were left totally naked holding on to the pole. This signified that God was going to strip them from everything that was not of Him and leave them bare and naked.

Those that had a strong and committed walk with the Lord were given a seat to sit on and a thick pole in front of them to embrace with their arms. When the Lord did the heavy lifting of the northeast part of the country they were safe, secure and unmoved.

What Is The Ultimate Purpose For Tongues?


Our church’s lead pastor made a significant comment.

He explained what the name of God as Jehovah means.

God as Jehovah, is the one who not only brings things into existence, but makes Himself responsible to do so.

He is not only the architect of existence but has a strong desire to manifest these things to us.

I can’t bring anything into existence, not even a hair on my head, but God can.

Having said this, I can confidently say I am in real need of seeing things which I have prayed for years, finally come to pass.

What about you?

It seems like life is one big pot full of conglomerate  things which I believe for, and yet half of them don’t seem to ever manifest.

I’ve thought that I am waiting for God, when many times He waits for me.

Not that some things, in God’s timing,  don’t take a long time to come to pass, because they do.

Mt 23:34  Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute (diokoo) them from city to city:

Php 3:12  Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after (diokoo) if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

Php 3:14  I press (diokoo) toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

But I believe that there are things that I passively wait on the Lord for, that if I enthusiastically persecuted them by prayer, they would quickly come to pass.

Yes, there is a righteous and holy persecution of the things which God wants to give to us.

I forget that God is the sole agent of creation and existence, and as its agent, is more anxious in bringing them to pass than what I think.

He anxious to create, when I think that He wants me to wait.

I must learn to coöperate with Him in this process.

1Co 3:9  For we are laborers together with God; ye are God’s husbandry; ye are God’s building.

Though God is Almighty, many a time He will limit Himself to act in accordance to the prayers of His people.

Having said this, I believe that the greatest prayer which allows us into this creative and birthing process is praying in tongues in association with what God wants to give to us.

I am not talking about the gift of tongues that we hear in a charismatic service.

I am talking about getting down to business with The Almighty in the things that you are really desirous to get from Him.

These are private tongues between you and God.

This is the labor of prayer through tongues.

Yes, it’s labor.

Like, every good thing in life, there is a price to pay to get it, and it usually takes labor.

This type of prayer  allows us to break into that realm where our faith intersects God’s will, sticks its finger in the socket of God’s electricity, and bang, suddenly He births.

As I said, many times God is waiting on us, when we think that we wait on Him.

He waits on us to birth and to give, but we do the labor by praying in tongues.

It’s there, that it’s not us who pray but the Spirit of God intercedes according to His wish to create and to give.

Yes, praying in tongues is arduous, time-consuming, and at numerous times boring.

Yet, every time that I have done this, much of what I’ve spent months or years waiting for, in weeks and even days, I get.

I’ve heard of people who pray in tongues one hour a day and begin to get.

Before God launched  us into our journey of faith in the 90’s, I prayed in tongues for three days, hours every day.

At the end, God gave me a spectacular picture about His promise for finances and provision that has carried us through  sixteen years of family missions.

It surely beats spending months and years assiduously waiting!

If you don’t believe me, try it!

It will be one of the more challenging things you will ever do, but the thrill of finally seeing things become your realities, is so worth it!

Jaws and the American Dollar


This was a prophetic vision I had three years ago.

As in the Jaws film where the unsuspecting swimmers are attacked by a huge shark, I saw swimmers gingerly swimming across the ocean blue. Huge sharks approached them from behind. The life guard who was a Christian prophet got up from his chair and blared out the warning of an impending attack. The swimmers were deaf and continued to swim on. These sharks were weird, though. They had the nose or snout of the a pig. They would approach the swimmers from behind and hit them with their snouts, but did not attack them. Because the sharks had not attacked, but simply butted the swimmers with the their noses, the former continued to feel safe, though many large sharks were in the waters.

As more and more sharks came unto the scene, the Christian life guard not only got up again and screamed, but got a megaphone and repeatedly uttered his voice onto the waters.

Suddenly the attack came. It happened in seconds. It was not an attack of carnage and blood. It was more one like countless household fuses massively short circuiting all at once. I could not see the sharks attack but I saw a mass and instantaneous short circuiting and explosive electronic power traverse across the waters.

I immediately saw the dollar sign and knew that it had to do with the demise of the American dollar and our economy. Every swimmer appeared dead as he or she floated head down, and back exposed in the ocean waters. Fortunately, there had been no carnage and the swimmers were not dead. They were all unconscious. The impact of the sudden electronic attack had rendered them unconscious.

Watchman Nee, the great Chinese apostle said that the only way to save a drowning man is to allow him to go unconscious and then he can be pulled safely out of the water. If a person attempts to save a drowning person when he is still kicking and flaying, both him and the one drowning will be pulled down to their deaths. So it is with a soul who does not know the Lord. While he is still arguing, and debating, and challenging the power and love of God, it is futile in many ways to continue to talk to him. We must wait until the circumstances of life and the folly of his own sins render him unconscious and then we can bring him to Christ.

I suspect from this that the demise of our dollar and economy which will render many unconscious, in hopelessness, distraught, and turmoil will prepare this country for a mighty revival of religion in Jesus Christ.

Who is God’s Crowned Jewel?


Eph 2:6 and did raise us up together, and did seat us together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

7 that He might show, in the ages that are coming, the exceeding riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus,

8 for by grace ye are having been saved, through faith, and this not of you—of God the gift,

9 not of works, that no one may boast;

10 for of Him we are workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to good works, which God did before prepare, that in them we may walk.

Eph 2:6-10 are an amazing set of scriptures. I think that we have not had the full revelation of what Paul; was has tried to tell us.

V6 We have been raised up with Christ when He was raised up. That is a given. All that has happened to Christ has happened to us. This is what separates the Christian for everybody else on the planet

Our current position now, and here on earth, is one of sitting on the very throne which Christ sits in.

If we have the revelation that we sit on the very throne which Christ’s is sitting on, then we work in exactly the same authority and power which He reigns with…right now!

The fullness of this can only be realized, however, when we live existentially or experientially in places which are found in the realms of God’s kingdom. As Christians we will sadly spend most of our earthly lives living by the realities of earthly places and earthly things. We must press in by faith to become transcendental people with transcendental thinking that can enter into the transcendental places of God’s kingdom and access His invisible and transcendental things. This is the definition of a renewed mind. We must ask God to transom us until it becomes the norm to live out heavenly places and access heavenly things and unnatural and uncomfortable to live out of earthly places.

It’s obvious that the more that our experiences are within places which include the kingdom of heaven, the more that we will be our experience to get access to the hours, times and seasons of that kingdom which God continually desires to reveals to us.

God’s heart is always one of kindness. The riches which God reveals to us in heavenly places are designated to fulfill specific functions of his kindness.  Every object which God has placed in His kingdom and which He reveals to us is used by Him to show His kindness to us and more so His kindness THROUGH us to hurting and lost humanity.

I suspect that what Paul was intending to say in verses 9 and 10 is different to what we thought he meant.

Everything from verse 6-10 is connected. Paul always connected his thoughts in his writings.

Yes, the transcendental riches of His grace made up as functions of His kindness have saved us, but I also see him saying so much more than that.

The transcendental riches of His grace, all which demonstrate different aspects of God’s incredible kindness to humanity, have been all poured or funneled into the believer. This pouring into us of all of God’s incredible riches of kindness have created, molded, and completed the believer into something that God had in mind.

Think of molten, fiery, red-hot steel, being poured into a metal cast iron mold, and creating an object once it cools down. Let’s take for example, the frame of a car.

Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

This is exactly what Paul is saying in Eph 2:10.

The word “workmanship” is the Greek word “poiema.” This rare word, a noun, only appears twice in the NT.

As the fiery hot molten steel poured into a metal cast mold produced the frame of a car, all the transcendental riches of God’s kindness, power, and glory have BEEN POURED into the believer. The believer now is the workmanship, masterpiece, God’s crowned jewel, the trophy, the completed product of all of God’s blessings to humanity. You see, we must learn to minister to people as THE COMPLETED masterpiece of God’s power, Gods healing, Gods finances, God’s riches to humanity. We simply show, demonstrate and release by faith.

This is why it’s not out works. It is an undeserved gift of God. We learn to minister boldly, confidently and with total authority realizing that all the completed masterpieces, centerpieces and achievements of God’s power, healing and riches for mankind lie deposited us finished and perfected. The more faith and the more revelation that we have, the greater will be the release of what is already in us.

You think about that today!

Do You Want A Big Financial Anointing?


Do You Want A Big Financial Anointing?

Lu 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

During our prayer meeting last night I realized that the “good measure, pressed down, and shaken together and running over,” is an anointing that we can enter  receive, and work in, if we are givers by the Spirit of God.

You need to get into the habit of continually sowing by the rhema word of God to see the experiential reality of this. I must confess that I have not seen this because, I am not a great sower. Yes, I give, but I still have fear and I still count my chickens before they hatch, so to speak, when it comes to money. Yet, God revealed this to me and I am excited, and at the same time a bit fearful, which I know it’s not from the Lord.

Give and it shall be given unto you; is in the present tense. We must be giving so that it is given back.

Pressed down and shaken together; are both in the perfect, passive participle order. This grammatical combination is the most powerful sign of existence, realm, state, or reality in the Greek. In other words, if you are an active sower, the reality or the anointing surrounding your life will be one where God is giving back to you in a way where blessings are being pressed together and shaken or sifted so He can give you more. This will become your natural mode of living.

The running over or overflowing is in the present signifying a continuous process.

How would you like to live in this mode of receiving from the Lord, and I am not just talking about money. This is God’s natural way of being. God is a God of infinite abundance that must be entered into by ever-increasing faith on our part. Our hindrance is our unrenewed mind.
