When Christ died on the cross, some very special things happened. He descended into hell and took back the authority that Adam delivered to him in the Garden of Eden. Ephesians 4:8, “Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)” Luke 4:5-7, “The devil led him up to a high place and...Read More
Category: 21 DAYS OF RELEASE
If someone gave you a fat check for $1 million, what would you do with it? What would be the first thing you would buy? Who would be the first person you would bless? A million dollars would be a game-changer for all of us. For most people, all of their financial problems would be resolved instantaneously. The only thing standing between you and your new life would be a financial institution that had the money on hand to cash your check. However, you go from bank to bank to bank and no one has the funds available to cash your...Read More
In Acts chapter 2, there was an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Church. The Father and Son released the Holy Spirit to take the place of Jesus as our Comforter. Jesus was the Comforter when he walked the earth with his disciples. In his absence, the Holy Spirit was released (poured out) to continue Christ’s mission. This work of the Holy Spirit is in no way inferior to the ministry of Christ two thousand years ago. He is God the Holy Spirit and he dwells within us. We never refer to the Holy Spirit as an “it”...Read More
We will be concluding our 21 Days of Release on this coming Sunday. We have used the Prayer Line for the first 20 days with everyone calling in. However, we will be meeting at the church at 5:30 am for a special anointing and prayer service. You do not want to miss this climatic conclusion of the 21 Days of Release. The Prayer Line will be open for those that are out of town and those who cannot attend. ...Read More
The prophet Isaiah prophesied about the ministry of the coming Messiah when he said, “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of...Read More
When Israel was enslaved by the Egyptians, God sent plague after plague upon Egypt. As the pressure intensified, Pharaoh offered to release the Israelites, but keep their wealth. Listen to the conversation between Moses and Pharaoh in Exodus 10:21 after the ninth plague of darkness: “Then the LORD said to Moses, ‘Stretch out your hand toward the sky so that darkness will spread over Egypt – darkness that can be felt.’ So Moses stretched out his hand toward the sky, and total darkness covered all Egypt for three days. No one could see anyone else or leave his place for...Read More
In our Year of Jubilee, we have been using Isaiah chapter 61 as our theme scripture. The first three verses detail Christ’s liberating power over death-dealing situations (e.g. mourning, prison, darkness, heaviness, etc.). However, in verse four, the true potential of the liberated person is released. Isaiah 61:4 (NIV) states, “They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.” When God liberates us, He releases us to do three things: rebuild, restore, and renew! Isaiah 61:4 (KJV) states, “And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the...Read More
Sometimes Christians act as if God is stingy and tight when it comes to releasing his blessings upon us. Nothing could be further from the truth. We must always begin every day by saying, “God wants to bless me today.” When we see God wanting to bless us, we release his flow into our lives. As a matter of fact, he cannot wait to bless us as this is the joy of every parent. God says, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:2 NIV). However, he does...Read More
Last night, I was going to send the 21 Days of Release Daily Devotion to the website and the Holy Spirit stopped me. I decided to wait on the Lord as these revelations are critical to this period. Early this morning after prayer, I still had not received anything. Mondays are my day off so I decided to get in some exercise by walking around Lake Lynn before the blazing noonday heat and humidity set in. I took some bread that was getting stale so I could feed the ducks before I started my five-mile power walk. When I arrived...Read More
Today started off with a tremendous revelation from the Lord. He said, “YOUR DEBTS HAVE BEEN CANCELED.” In the days of slavery, cruel slave owners would put heavy yokes and chains upon the necks of slaves to immobilize them and keep them in bondage. As long as the yokes were upon their necks, their bondage was secured. A slave would work for years to earn enough to pay off his master to become a free man. Many times, however, the slave owners would trick their slaves into working their entire lives for only the illusion of freedom. Slaves were...Read More
