Christmas Kingdom

CHRISTMAS KINGDOM Isaiah 9:2-7 (NIV) The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned . . . . 4 For as in the day of Midian’s defeat, you have shattered the yoke that burdens them . . . . 6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government [the authority of Heaven’s Kingdom] will be on his shoulders.…

Cross to the Throne Part 5: Cross to the Throne

Cross to the Throne Part 5: Cross to the Throne GARDEN TO THE CROSS Step 1: Jesus conquered our emotional conditions. Step 2: Jesus conquered our physical conditions. CROSS TO THE THRONE Step 3: Jesus conquered our spiritual conditions. Our spiritual condition was comprised of (1) the power of sin, (2) satan’s authority, (3) and the power of death. Jesus Conquered Sin 1 Peter 2:24 (AMP) He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross [willingly offering Himself…

Cross to the Throne Part 4: Garden to the Cross

Cross to the Throne Part 4: Garden to the Cross Jesus slept in the middle of a storm, walked on the water, raised the dead, cast out demons, and healed every kind of sickness and infirmity. In every situation He was the Master. But in the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus entered a state of sorrow, grief, fear, and distress so severe that He sweat drops of blood (Luke 22:44). Why? Because this is where substitution began. Isaiah 53:4 (KJV) Surely…

Cross to the Throne Part 3: The Laws of Identification

Cross to the Throne Part 3: The Laws of Identification In Jesus’s earthly walk He was our example. Jesus revealed what a man spiritually alive unto God could do. However, in the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus changed roles. He became our substitute, stand-in, and agent. Romans 4:25 (FD) When we acknowledge God as the awesome power who restored life to Jesus, we recognize He made His Son our stand-in and agent; as our stand-in he paid the death penalty due…

Cross to the Throne Part 2: Spirit, Soul, and Body

Cross to the Throne Part 2: Spirit, Soul, and Body The Apostle Paul’s revelation starts with an understanding of spirit, soul, and body. 2 Corinthians 5:16-17 (St. Paul from the Trenches) I no longer, then, regard man as physical, but spiritual. The physical is no longer set before my eyes. Christ himself to me is no more a physical being; I see him spiritually, and in that spiritual vision I learn that man is a new creation. . . .…

Cross to the Throne Part 1: God’s X-Ray Vision

Cross to the Throne Part 1: God’s X-Ray Vision In the Gospels we see a picture of redemption. These same events look much different from God’s perspective. The Gospels show us a picture. The Epistles show us an x-ray. 2 Corinthians 5:16-17 (LBP) Because of what Christ has done for everyone, we are careful not to assume that people are nothing more than what our eyes and ears tell us about them. In the past we made that mistake with…

Christ The Healer Part 6:
Healing – The Next Level

Christ The Healer Part 6: Healing – The Next Level How many have ever stood for healing and thought, “I just don’t have enough faith.” Or been caught in the vicious cycle of trying to get more faith? Or struggle receiving from God? Luke 8:43-44, 46 (VOICE) In the crowd was a woman. She had suffered from an incurable menstrual disorder for 12 years [and had spent her livelihood on doctors with no effect]. It had kept her miserable and…

Christ The Healer Part 5:
Winners Take A Stand

Christ The Healer Part 5: Winners Take A Stand Ephesians 6:10-18 (CW) Finally, be strong in the Lord and stand in the power of His might. Put on every piece of spiritual armor the Lord has given you so you can stand your ground against the devil’s schemes. We’re not dealing with an enemy here on earth that we can see or get our hands on, but with the darkness of spiritual beings who were once in heaven and are…

Christ The Healer Part 4:
Know the Will of God

Christ The Healer Part 4: Know the Will of God 1 John 5:14-15 (NKJV) This is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. Matthew 17:15-18 (NIV) “Lord, have mercy on my son,” he said. “He has seizures and is suffering greatly. He often falls…
