Over the past few days, we have learned that Mary was an executionist and she had power with God. Mary used her power with God to change and influence things for others. We have seen from the example of Mary that when you have power with God, you can change things. Read the rest of this entry

The Fire

Acts 2:1&3 (TPT) “On the day Pentecost was being fulfilled, all the disciples were gathered in one place. Then all at once a pillar of fire appeared before their eyes. It separated into tongues of fire that engulfed each one of them.”

1 Kings 18:38Immediately the fire of the Lord flashed down from heaven and burned up the young bull, the wood, the stones, and the dust…” As the fire of God falls in this season, God’s fire is not going to consume our sacrifice Read the rest of this entry

Set Time

1 Chr.12:32 (NKJV) “of the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do…”(emphasis added).

Ps.4:5 Offer sacrifices in the right spirit, and trust the Lord.” 1 kings 18:33 “He piled wood on the altar, cut the bull into pieces, and laid the pieces on the wood.” (emphasis added). The sacrifice you place on God’s altar belongs to Read the rest of this entry

Fuel & Sacrifice

1 Kings 18:33-35 “…Then he said, “Fill four large jars with water, and pour the water over the offering and the wood.” .…“Do the same thing again!” “…Now do it a third time!” So they did as he said, and the water ran around the altar and even filled the trench.” (emphasis added).

We pray and wait on God for something Read the rest of this entry

Lifestyle Of Worship III

“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him” Rom.12:1 [MSG].

Intersect your daily routines with your passion for God. Mix your life with God. Let your life be mixed with worship. Imagine a blender, put your life into it, add worship, add praise, add Bible Reading, push the button and just blend it all Read the rest of this entry
