Romans 6

It's been another full day and I have been afflicted with Holy Insomnia! I am choosing to go to bed now, but the word of the day is...If you aren't fascinated by Jesus you are open and vulnerable to attack.

Romans 6
Knowing - Who we are in Christ and see ourselves alive to God.
Resisting - sin, Satan and sin provoking situations
Pursuing - DOING + BEING
Pursuing God
Pursuing people
Pursuing truth

"You can't repent for you desire for pleasure because God is the creator of pleasure. You can repent for pursuing pleasure in the wrong way."

I will post more once I have studied this more.

The Ruling Body = Ekklesia (church)

I am trying to post this before midnight we'll see if it works. If you get a chance go to and watch Dec 29, 2010 evening session.

The house that contends! The translation of ekklesia to church was a poor translation so that the king of England was the head of the church. A more appropriate translation of the word would have been ruing body or temple of God. We are the ruling body and the gates of hell cannot prevail against us. I am the temple of God. I am a part of the ruling body that declares war and elects high officials.

POWER = Prayer and fasting. If you want to see yourself, your family, your work, your town, city, province nation changed this is the way. God has been speaking to me the power of prayer. He has been telling me that the way to change is through prayer. Nothing happens without prayer. Nothing takes places without prayer!!

We are the ruling authority. As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD, Yahweh! AMEN

Batten down the Hatches a Hurricane of Glory is coming!

My goal is to post once a day. I am at OneThing and I am sharing what God is doing. Please remember that this is the translation of my heart and what God wanted me to hear. Ask him to speak to your heart before you read it.

Day 1 - Matthew 24:14 - only 350million people left in the world who have not heard the gospel in their language(5%).
-Wyclife estimates that by 2025 every nation will have the Bible in their translation.
People get ready Jesus is coming! This is not scary. God is not a scary father. He is a father that laughs and delights. He watches us try and fall, but than we get up to try again and he rejoices! If you don't quit, if you don't give up, YOU WIN! YOU WIN!

- We need to prepare ourselves for the glory that is coming. If we do not prepare he will pour in but we will not be able to carry and contain what he is giving us.
-Give me a life of wisdom that can handle the spirit of revelation
Proverbs 24:3, Pr. 1:20 -2:?? Wisdom, ask for wisdom He promises to give it.

If we don't change how we are living now we will not be able to contain what is coming. The average aged video game player is 35!! The spirit of laziness that is the greatest besetting sin to your life and your destiny!!!! Proverbs 13:23, 19:15, 20:13

"Go to bed at ten and get up at 5:30-6" The sins you confess the most generally have to do with the things you do after 10pm. It's true people, it's true!! The speaker was very forthcoming in his statement for us to go to bed early and get up early. I am not sure how that looks in my life, but I anticipate what he is going to do.

When God speaks MOVE!

Repent my kingdom is here and everybody jump in :) Repentance is the process to/of renewal.

It is time to make a declaration of dependence on GOD, be delivered from the world's ideas of praise, success, happiness...

Live for an audience of one. Connect with people that push us forward. "Difficult(confined) is the way to life." How low can you go?

give, forgive, repent!

Intercession, holiness, offerings for the poor and prophecy

Beware of well meaning people. ex. why are you so intense? come watch this movie, it's cute!

DO IT, the one who hears it does it!!!!!

I know is isn't very refined but that's the brief!

Theme: He loves you, delights in you and is wanting voluntary love, but in the end every knee will bow and tongue confess that He is LORD.

These are apples. Well okay maybe they are red pears. My good friend and I were having a beautiful dinner and this picture was hanging on the wall behind her. We both thought they were apples. It wasn't until our meal was done almost 3 hours later that we realized that in fact they were red pears.

Sometimes we see ourselves as an apple but really we are a pear and there is nothing I could say to convince you that in fact you are an apple. Our eyes and minds are faulty. What we see is not what is true. I need God's eyes to replace mine.

I recently got a new CD it's called "Joy". The lyrics of one song in particular struck me they were this,

I knew what I was getting into when I called you.
I knew what I was getting into when I said your name, but I said it just the same.
I knew what I was getting into and I still want you.
I knew what I was getting into.
And I am not shocked by your weakness.
And I am not shocked even by your sin.
And I am not shocked by your brokenness.
Just don't give up.
And don't give in.
If you don't quit. You win, you win.

Just don't give up.
And don't give in.
If you don't quit. You win, you win.

Everything is in my hands.
It's going to be alright.
Everything is in my hands.
It's going to be alright.
It's going to be okay.
Everything is in my hands.
It's going to be alright.
It's going to be okay.

And you don't have to pretend to be something or someone you're not.
Cuz I know you better than that, even better than that.
Listen my Beloved...

I could write out more of this song but this portion captures what I want to say. How wonderful and amazing is it that I am loved by someone who knows all the blackness and distortion and still calls my name. He pursues me and desires me. I am my Beloved's and He is mine.

Friend of the Bridegroom

So I was listening to a sermon today on the Bride of Christ, which is the church. Than the speaker(Mike Bickle) talked about the friend of the bridegroom. He was talking about how as the friend of the bridegroom we try to ensure the the bride and the bridegroom are fully engaged with each other and not distracted. As the friend of the bridegroom it is not my job to get the bride to fall in love with me, but with Him. The goal is for me to go undeteced, but to help the bride be fully engaged and captured by the bridegroom and his heart. I like it.
