Ephesians 1:3 states, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who HAS blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” Today we must release the seven blessings of being in Christ in our lives. First thing to consider about the blessings of God: He has ALREADY given us all of His covenant blessings. You are in possession (past tense) of them right now as you read this. God took care of all of this before the foundation of the world. There is no mistake. 1. HE CHOSE US in him before...Read More
There is NO condemnation in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1-2 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. Story – Some children were gathering mushrooms and ate some that were poisonous. An antidote was given which, acting as “the law of life,” counterworks the poison, and sets the children “free from the law of death,” which had already commenced to work in their bodies. This is what Jesus has done for us. He counteracts everything...Read More
“A renewed mind is a dangerous weapon in the Kingdom,” Apostle Walker preached today. “Don’t go back to the same thing that God brought us out of.” Following is the list of Scriptures we are to study this week: Romans 8:1-2 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:37-39 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life,...Read More

Sometimes, people tend to want to treat God as if He were a genie in a bottle. We want to rub the bottle and the genie will appear. Then after we get what we want, we want the genie back in the bottle until the next time. If you really think about it, the genie, of all people, would be the most powerful, but the most miserable. Why? Because it performs without relationship! The person in charge who rubs the bottle will have the genie serve without love. In the TV series I Dream of Jeannie, Major Nelson wanted...Read More
In An Invitation to the Extraordinary, Apostle Walker chronicles a tragedy at Mt. Pleasant that rattled the very core of our church. The events that followed were life-transforming. An Invitation to the Extraordinary was published in June 2012. An excerpt . . . The cancer of mediocrity plagues our society by infecting our spirits and attitudes, disposing us to be satisfied with the ordinary. We experience its numbing effects in all areas of life. However, extraordinary people rise above the regular routine by turning justified frustration into action. They move forward, move out, and move on. They anticipate the turbulence created by the convergence of crisis, risk, and opportunity generated by life’s transitional storms. These storms blow into our lives to drive us from mediocrity to extraordinary living. What we have done in the past does not work against the unusual energy these tempests release. An Invitation to the Extraordinary: Releasing the Water-Walker Within dares us to move from our ordinary zone to our explosive zone. It offers fresh insight to help transition those tired of riding out their storms to a walk in the extraordinary. You can rise above your tempest and walk across the circumstantial waters of life. We all need water-walking skills as we encounter personal crisis, an unstable economy, and a troubling future. The rapid rate of global change demands a higher level of accomplishment. In...Read More
