New Years Eve... short recap

Too many notes from tonight to do a full recap. I will be posting the full notes soon. Some take a ways:



Kenneth Copeland tonight quoting Norval Hayes:

You didn't make a decision to aggressively possess all God has for you. Because you didn't decide you didn't hear. Because you didn't hear you couldn't see it. Because you couldn't see it you couldn't say it. Because you couldn't say it you didn't act on it. Because you didn't act on it you didn't receive it.



If you don't end 2012 as the best year you've ever had or even heard of it's because you didn't make a decision to take what God has planned for his Body this year. Anyone not operating under the blessing is going to have a hard year, but for those operating under the blessing they will hardly even notice the bad things happening around them.

Jesus said "I only do what I see my Father do..." In like manner we must pay close attention to the Word of God. Not just for…

2011 into 2012

2012 is in less than 12 hours... What about 2012? In many ways it will be more of the same. Most will wake up on January 1st and it will feel like any other day, just as the last many January 1st's have been.


Ecclesiastes 1:9 (The Message)
9 What was will be again, what happened will happen again. There's nothing new on this earth. Year after year it's the same old thing.


There is nothing new really. Wars, Rumors of Wars, Uprisings, Arab Winters, People complaining against God and His people when it is those against God and His People causing most of the problems. There will be catastrophes throughout the World. Someone withing the USA Government will likely do something stupid against Israel and the USA will have a catastrophe because of it. Democrats will complain about republicans. Republicans will complain about Democrats and each other. In many ways there will be more and more of the same.

But wait... what is that I hear? There is a sound rising... It is the sound of the …

Last Days and Eternal Glory!

Revelations 22

7 "Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."
8 Now I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. 9 Then he said to me, "See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God."


Blessed/Empowered to Prosper is the person who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book. The book of revelations has been the most misunderstood book in the bible. People consider it shrouded in mystery and imagery and therefore too complex to understand. But the Word of God says here that keeping this book and it's words will empower you to prosper!

All around us the signs of the end are rising. Wars, Famine, Earthquakes... All increasing in power and frequency. Demonic influence has begun to hit a new wave of boldness. Not since…

Building Traffic? How do I do it?

One of the hardest things to learn concretely as a new blog writer is how to build traffic. Blogger and Wordpress both have their advantages. But Blogger makes it increasingly easy to use amazon affiliation and Google adsense. So there is so little work left to do but build the blog to an appearance of your liking and then write on your hearts passions. You are told from the start that MOST blogs don't make money and that writing should be done because you enjoy it. But if no-one ever reads it what's the point right?

Then there is the point that comes after you've been doing this for years and you only see traffic from a few friends and relatives and some random foreign tracking machines that you wonder is there anything else? What's next? Can this be more?

So you wonder what I am wondering now. How do I build a steady stream of traffic both from repeat visits and new visitors? How do I top the Google Hit List when someone looks up my subject? How do I get someone to cli…

The calling of Distributorship

The calling of Distributorship. There is a calling for distribution, a gift of distribution that has been overlooked by the body of Christ. In listening, re listening, re listening, etc to a message by Keith Moore from the Great Lakes Believers Convention 2005; I have come to a conclusion. I need to take this calling more seriously.

In Luke we see a young man, a rich young ruler, who truly had done everything he knew to do, and he did it well. He was obeying the laws and keeping covenant. He asked Jesus what to do next, in order to walk in the God kind of life with no limits. Jesus responded:

Luke 18:22 NAS
When Jesus heard this, He said to him, "One thing you still lack ; sell all that you possess and distribute it to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven ; and come, follow Me."

In other words: "Liquidate what you have, start to sow that into the lives of other people. Build up a heavenly treasury account. Follow Me!" Throughout the gospels when Jesus said &…

Seed, Time, Harvest!

COME:
Revelation 16
6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, And You have given them blood to drink. For it is their just due."


HEAR:
How often have you heard someone say that they could not fathom a loving God sending someone to hell or doing this or that in judgement? I hear it often. Either God is thought of as a Tyrant or a Pacifist. Neither is true. God is Holy! He is Just! He is Love! He is all of these things and more.

Consider for a moment:

A child runs out into the street and there is on coming traffic. The father of the child allows him to run out into traffic because he doesn't want to offend him or hurt his feelings by correcting the child. Is this a good father? NO!

Love will step in front of a gunman and take him out to prevent the gunman from harming others!

Love will says "If you come to bring death to my family I'll take you out first!"

Love is aggressive and defensive!


Seed, Time, Harvest!
There is also another factor here. That is "Se…

Fight to enter the rest

It's official... I'm on a theme. REST. I was listening to Keith Moore from the Great Lakes Believers Conventions 2005 which was given to me as a partner gift a few years ago. He talked about REST, which has become a theme in my prayer and study.

The true fight of faith is not about struggling to get our confessions right, or battle doubt, or try to believe harder or better or more. It's not any of the things I so often make it about. It's not about me being a better christian or walking in more consistent faith so I can earn enough brownie points to get what I want. It's not a rewards card with points to redeem. There are aspects of some of these things involved in a life of faith. But the good fight of faith really is not any of these.

The good fight of faith is about me laying hold of eternal life.Eternal means without beginning and end, that which always was, is, and will be.Life means the absolute fullness of the life-force of God. We know Faith is the material s…

Low Slow

Pastor talked about a lot of great stuff on Sunday. I suggest you watch it:
Sunday 9:00 AM | Emmanuel - God with Us

However what he said at the end of 2nd service really marked my thinking. I have been hearing a theme from God this past year... especially the past few months. He's been asking me to sing to him. Also to enter the rest of prayer. Not rest as in: "Eat the rest of your dinner". But rest as in: "Peace, calm, rest".

Pastor George said: "You need to go into Low-Slow".

Low-Slow

In other words: Stop getting worked up, rushed, anxious, etc. Don't let the season rush you. Don't pop in and out of stores at the speed of light frantically trying to get this or that. Rather, shift the gear down on the inside to Low-Slow.

I read an article from Kenneth Copeland talking about prayer. He said sometimes he will go to prayer about something and he will get many ideas come to his mind all at once. He knows that means he needs to shut all that out and wa…

Paradox of Excellence

Paradox of Excellence:

Philippians 3:7-9 NKJV
7 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. 8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;

Philippians 3:7-9 Message
7 The very credentials these people are waving around as something special, I'm tearing up and throwing out with the trash - along with everything else I used to take credit for. And why? Because of Christ. 8 Yes, all the things I once thought were so important are gone from my life. Compared to the high privilege of knowing Christ Jesus as my Master, firsthand, everything I once thought I had going for me is insignificant - dog dung. I've dumped it all in the trash so that …

Excellence

Excellence Philippians 3:8 WBTYes doubtless, and I count all things [to be] loss for theexcellenceof the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them [to be] dung, that I may win Christ...
Websters 1828 Dictionary defines “Excellence” or “To Excel” as:To go beyondTo surpass in good qualitiesTo OutdoTo have good qualities, or to perform meritorious actions, in an unusual degree; to be eminent, illustrious, or distinguished.

Thesaurus.Com expounds on “Excellence” as:Superiority, distinction, good, merit, nobility, perfection, quality, significance, value, virtue, worth, rightness, noblesse.

We find then that excellence is defined both in the act of excellence and of being excellent in nature/quality. We see the high quality work of a craftsman as a work of excellence; the work of a Mozart or Bach as a musical work of excellence. We also see that the person themselves can be considered of high quality or value. Thus a person of royal h…

Revelation VS Information/Education

Typically artists get a paper/pencil and start to draw, then turn to books and maybe classes. God's original intent was for man to get it on download from Heaven. Learning was secondary to revelation knowledge. Full peoms/paintings ready mind in the minds eye and coming out as natural as breathing into the visual form. Music, Art, Poetry, Books... But also architecture, lawyers knowing what to say, etc... all fields of man's work operating on revelation knowledge.
"When Adam fell, he fell from Revelation to Information" Bill WinstonAdam didn't need to "learn" as we do, until after the fall. He was communicating with God. They Holy Spirit has come to show us all things and lead us into the truth. When we pray about a situation we are getting God's wisdom on download from Heaven! We don't have to …

What did God say again????!

What has God been telling you that you thought you understood but maybe need to go back and ask Him about? Are there instructions He gave that you added to/subtracted from? Is it possible you miss-understood His instruction, even though it was simple. How simple is "Sing to me"? What has God told you? Are you sure that's what He said... the WAY He said it?

On December 7th 2002 I was sitting on a rest stop picnic table. I was smoking, again... I was contemplating joining the Air Force. I finally got approval to go in after trying for three years. I thought I had made up my mind to go in. Little did I know my life was about to have an Damascus road turn around.

The LORD said to me; and I paraphrase it's been a long time:

"If you don't stop smoking you may never sing again." 
Then...
"I don't need you to sing to do what I called you to do."
Silence...

I said to myself: "I don't think He's kidding..." I thought about it for what fe…

2011 Prophecies by KCM

2011 Prophecies by Kenneth Copeland:


Come On Out! Prophecy delivered by Kenneth Copeland on July 8, 2011 Southwest Believers’ Convention “Oh, in the generations before you there have been moments of uplifting and moments when My people would rejoice and think My, oh how wonderful! And it was wonderful and it was filled with joy and filled with My presence, and many miraculous and wonderful things happened. But those days were like small children playing in a little pond and in spiritual waters up almost to the knees. Oh, isn’t it wonderful? Isn’t it wonderful? And it was wonderful. Because, you see, it was all of the depth that those generations had ever experienced. But these days, these days, I want you to understand,” saith the Spirit of grace, “that you have begun to ride a wave that those before generations brought about and they taught and they preached and they stood and they fought the fight of faith. And for the last 100 years you are now being the product and the recipient and yo…
