Luke 13:20-21 “He also asked, “What else is the Kingdom of God like? It is like the yeast a woman used in making bread. Even though she put only a little yeast in three measures of flour, it permeated every part of the dough” (emphasis added).

Jesus is introducing another concept of the kingdom to us. He introduced the concept of ‘occupy’ and now He is introducing the concept of multiply. He says the Kingdom of heaven is like a yeast [it is little] put in a big measure of flower, and the little yeast multiplies its influence until the whole bucket Read the rest of this entry

Go Now!

Matt.28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words], baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (AMP)

Imagine you open your room window one morning and everywhere outside is filled with ice. Then you see four people trying to make it up the icy street, crawling on all fours. They are all progressing steadily, and just as they are approaching the top of the street, one of them gets up too soon. Read the rest of this entry

The Objective

Ex.9:1 “Go back to Pharaoh,” the Lord commanded Moses. “Tell him, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let my people go, so they can worship me.” [with emphasis]

Pharaoh was buried but God’s people were planted. There is a huge different between being buried and being planted. The difference is what is on the inside. When God plants His children, what is inside grows out and becomes a forest. Read the rest of this entry

Get Wisdom

Dan.2:47 The king said to Daniel, “Truly, your God is the greatest of gods, the Lord over kings, a revealer of mysteries, for you have been able to reveal this secret.”

You need to know this God that has all the power and controls the course of world events. You need to know this God that sets up kings and removes kings. Guess what? As powerful, as awesome, as engaged, and powerfully controlling the course of world events as God is, He is secure in Himself. Read the rest of this entry

Take The Reigns

Gen.3:6 “The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it” [with emphasis].

Please read Genesis 3:1-7, it details the first recorded crossroads in the history of mankind. The Bible says that she saw that the fruit was beautiful and that points to the lust of the eyes. Read the rest of this entry

God not “god”

2 Chron.7:14 (AMPC, with emphasis) “If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.”

The truth is that God’s heart is for His people to be called by His Name. As children of God, our names [our identities] have to be rooted in God. Read the rest of this entry
