I Dare The Believer To Read…

RLAIn light of the uproar for the various issues that have circled around the United States over the last couple of weeks, I want to take my time this morning to share some thoughts with those that declare themselves to be followers of the King. I do not generally lend my time, my thoughts and my opinions to discuss political affairs of our nation, quite simply because i’m not a citizen of this world but the Kingdom and I’m simply an ambassador to this earth for the Kingdom. Therefore as an ambassador it is my job not to discuss and promote the affairs of the principles of the Constitution of the land I dwell in, but to communicate, declare and decree the principles, precepts and Constitution of the Kingdom I’ve been sent by. And so should it be for those that profess to be citizens of that same great Kingdom.

I see countless posts, opinions, the sharing of frustrations and emotions and just all out bitterness and despair from those that profess a Kimgdom citizenship. I have to ask this morning, what King do you really believe in? What Constitution is the one you live by and hold precedent in your life? The one of the nation you reside or the one of the native nation that you were sent from? If you know where you were sent from and declaring the laws and precepts of the One you were sent by is your mission, then you have no reason to despair today, because our Kingdom hasn’t crumbled, it hasn’t moved, it hasn’t lost its authority and it’s King has not been overthrown.

My advice to you this morning and really for the remainder of your purpose within the earth, is to quit publicizing the laws of the land. I realize you might be disappointed, hurt or frustrated by whatever has taken place over the last several weeks and even months or years, but you were not sent and commissioned to have faith in the Constitution and leadership of an earthly kingdom, but sent to celebrate and declare by actions, as well as, words the character, truth and mind of the King of all kingdoms. By your frustrating posts, your negative spouts and your cries of pain and frustration in regards to the affairs of this nation, you draw and focus attention to what is temporary and natural, rather than maintaining a peace, a consistency and a confidence in what is supernatural. Remember light dispels darkness, regardless of how big or how small, but it is impossible for the light to be seen, shown, or lived if your focus, by language and action, is on the darkness. You were not given purpose to draw constant attention to the land you’re in, but to declare the reality of the Kingdom you were sent from. Your constant state of upheaval, frustration and alarm by every turn of the tide in the place you reside, shows instability and a lack of faith and belief in the Kingdom that you declare to be an ambassador for. If you don’t believe it yourself, and celebrate it, why should anybody that you have been sent to declare it to, believe it?

I refuse to give attention to the affairs of this nation. Do I have opinions about some things? Certainly! But I was not commissioned by my King to share my opinions, yet only the policies of the Kingdom that I was sent by. Opinions usually put on display a wealth of ignorance, based on partial or unstable information. The information of the nation that we reside in, because it is led by the opinions of man and seeded by the king of culture, will forever remain partial and unstable. But we have been sent by a Kingdom whose information transcends time and culture, whose Constitutional Author is the same then, now and forevermore. The articles of our nation cannot be added to, nor taken away from. They will never be ratified or amended. So I ask, when culture shifts around you, why are you moved?

My suggestion is that we take our mind off of unstable information around us and become scholars of the information we were sent to represent, rooted in it, where it becomes not just what we think we know, but so confident in it that it is what we live by within our actions, our speech and our emotions. You will become a force of unshakable impact, not when you rage against the land you’re in and demand your voice to be heard, but when your voice celebrates, with confidence and excitement, what you represent, rather than what you oppose.

You must remember that man was only granted the use of a voice, not to voice opinions and not to command man, but in order to declare the principles of the Kingdom on earth, as it is in heaven. Bringing all that treads upon the earth, both beast and adversary, into subjection with the Kingdom and using that voice to celebrate, with praise (remember praise is a weapon!), our King! Do not use your voice improperly.

Let me leave you with this passage from our Constitution, Article Isaiah, Section 12:

“And in that day you will say: 

“O Lord, I will praise you; though you were angry with me, your anger is turned away, and you comfort me.

Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid;

For Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song;He also has become my salvation.

Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.

And in that day you will say: “Praise the Lord, call upon his name; declare His deeds among the peoples, make mention that His name is exalted.

Sing to the Lord, for He has done excellent things; this is known in all the earth.

Cry out and shout, O inhabit of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst!”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Day

This is far more than a civil rights speech this was a Kingdom message, stretching much farther than just the color of skin or the disorder of culture. This was a message founded deeply in the principles of God, uniting His creation. Progress was made as a nation; but I believe if Dr. King were alive today, he would be greatly saddened at the regression that we have allowed. Our nation once mighty, not from wealth and power, but in unity and conviction is no longer better, but worse. Our division, hatred and anger used to at least be honest, out front and open, but now it’s subtle and deceptive. You hate your brother while smiling to his face and inviting him into your home. We continue to call a spiritual war, a race war and use fleshly tactics and weapons to fight a spiritual war that is immune to your artillery. The seed of racism was buried in the hearts of men, using man’s own ignorance to divide God’s creation. The spiritual enemy that we face, much like the ignorance embedded deep within many, is not racist. He attacks the black and white, alike, and fools us to blame each other. We must understand that “we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12 NKJV)”

Dr. King understood this because before he was ever a civil rights hero in America, he surrendered himself as a servant of the most high God and an ambassador of God’s Kingdom. Whether you are white or black, your brother of another color is not the issue, it is the condition of your heart. You must cease from fighting a spiritual war with fleshly weapons, it’s weak and lazy. Put down your chosen weapon of hatred and pick up a spiritual weapon that’s proven..love. Love is so powerful that it can both connect and conquer. It unites the greatest of friends and overcomes the fiercest of enemies. As a matter of fact, I’m not sure that you can really call it love until it is an enemy. “But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful. (‭Luke‬ ‭6‬:‭32-36‬ NKJV)”

If you really want to celebrate today and what this great man stood for, don’t throw a party in his honor or parade his name, live in accordance to the principals that he lived by, the principles of the Kingdom. You are fighting a war, but you must choose who and what you are fighting for. Not black or white, but evil or good. Choose your side and your weapons wisely.
You are fighting a war, but you must choose who you are fighting for. Not black or white, but evil or good. Choose your side and your weapons wisely

New Church Makes It’s Home In Anderson Mall (Anderson Independent Article/Saturday, December 27)

By Abe Hardesty/Anderson Independent

Sixty-five stores were open for business in late December at the Anderson Mall.

Only one offered free products.

That store, near the entrance of J.C. Penney and across the hall from Books-A-Million, is the Rejuvenate Church — the newest tenant in the 42-year-old mall.

What seems an unlikely location for a house of worship is one that Anderson County native Jason Wilson considers ideal. From the time it began meeting in homes in the Powdersville area a year ago, Wilson had been looking for an Anderson location, preferably one in an easy-to-find spot that would foster diversity.

The Anderson Mall, he discovered, meets all those criteria.

“The mall is a great place to find a cross-section of the population. Shopping doesn’t discriminate between age, financial status or anything else,” said Wilson, who serves as pastor.

“I knew that if we were located at the storefront of a mall, we’d get all types of people walking past,” Wilson said. “And that’s where I wanted to be.”

The church began meeting at the mall in late September. Its meetings usually draw about 30 “regulars.”

It marks the first full-time ministry for Wilson, a 1996 Wren High graduate who attended college at both Clemson and Troy State of Alabama.

After earning a degree in health sciences at Clemson in 2001, he worked as an employee health coordinator at the AnMed Health System and served as a youth leader at New Image Church in the Powdersville area before making the commitment in 2013 to form a new congregation.

Wilson’s goal is to “create a culture of ultimate diversity.”

He had initially planned to use a school or theater as the meeting place for his new ministry, but came up with the mall idea while shopping last year with his wife, Serena, and two children.

The unusual venue, he said, “puts us light years ahead” of the typical pace of growth for a new congregation.

“We believe that the church is the bridge that connects divides,” Wilson said. “There are very few places that everyone visits, regardless of age, race and socioeconomic status. The mall is that place.”

Wilson, in a post on his website, added that the location gives the new church a chance to reach some shoppers who otherwise might not stop by for congregational meetings or Bible study.

“We’re not convincing people to come to our church; they’re coming to (the mall) to buy their jeans and we get to love them while they do it,” Wilson wrote.

Wilson hopes to add Sunday-morning services in January.

Wilson, 36, felt called to the ministry at age 18, just before his sophomore year of college. He spent the next seven years “dodging” that calling, but said he eventually “realized he couldn’t continue to escape it.”

About two years ago, Wilson made the commitment to form a new church and become senior pastor about two years ago.

“In January 2013, I felt like God was speaking to me,” said Wilson, who announced to close friends at a Christmas party in December 2013 that he felt called to start a new church.

Wilson is well-acquainted with full-time church ministry. His in-laws, Gary and Cindy Cannon, have served more than 20 years as youth pastors at Greenville’s Tremont Avenue Church of God. An uncle serves as a minister in Alabama and his great-grandfather once served as pastor of the McDuffie Street Church of God.

Wilson married the former Serena Cannon in 2001. They have two young children.

The family ties to the ministry offer no guarantees when it comes to starting a new church, Wilson said.

“Starting a new church is the second-most failed business venture — only about 20 percent succeed,” Wilson said in mid-December, as he worked to install a sound system in the mall storefront.

In an effort to reduce expenses, Wilson and others in the group have become do-it-yourselfers to an extent.

“My grandpa was a carpenter. I worked with him a little, but it is not my gift,” Wilson said of the renovation project, which turned into a group effort.

Wilson is a big proponent of teamwork, and often uses the team-building techniques he first came to appreciate as a student of football.

“Football closely resembles life. I call it the ‘godliest’ sport,” Wilson said. “There are a lot of biblical principles involved in football.

“The way a successful church body comes together, with each member fulfilling its roles, and working together as a team, and facing adversity is much the same way a successful football team functions,” Wilson said.

Look At Where We Get To Call Home!

Anderson MallThis blog is one of announcement and excitement, not instruction or leadership. 
Where We’ll Be
After several months of planning, praying, proposing, we can now put a face to the name of Rejuvenate Church. We are excited to announce that RC will make it’s home inside of the Anderson Mall! We are proud to call such a central place in the Anderson area, our home. We will be located in Suite G04, which is directly across from Books-A-Million inside the mall and right outside JCPenney. It can be easily accessed in 3 ways: 1. As you enter the main entrance of the mall and make your first right, down the JCPenney wing, we are the last property on the left before heading down the ramp/stairs and into JCPenney. 2. You can enter through Books-A-Million, walk through the store into the mall and we are directly across the way.  3. You can park in the lot in the rear of the mall between Belk & JCPenney and enter through the rear entrance of the mall next to Penney’s. 
A Little Of The Why
Partnering with Anderson Mall creates such a dynamic opportunity for us. We get a chance to connect and touch people everyday. The heart of Rejuvenate Church is to create a culture of ultimate diversity; we believe that RC is the bridge that connects divides. The Kingdom is undivided; we wish to mirror that image. There are very few places that everyone visits, regardless of age, race and socioeconomic status. That mall is that place. This creates an opportunity for us to engage our community and it’s culture, and find ways, through everyday connection, to unify that divide. We want to leave a thumbprint on the Anderson area; we do not want a week to go by that our community does not know that we’re here. Being inside Anderson Mall, puts us light years ahead in that pursuit, already. We’re not convincing people to come to our church; they’re coming to our church to buy their jeans and we get to love them while they do it. We also seek to create a presence in the life of business culture and it’s leaders in Anderson. We believe as being a part of both the Anderson Area Chamber and an integral part of Anderson Mall, we have a great head start. As so many look for ways to do outreach in a community, we’re already there and we’re so excited to invest in the lives of our community, each and every day.
How You Can Help
First and foremost, the most effective thing anyone can do is pray. Your prayers for our vision and the journey to develop that vision, mean everything to us.
Because we are occupying a former retail establishment, there are certainly many things that need to be done to utilize it for ministry. What is so cool, is how God created an opportunity for this place and it is already so layed out to meet the needs of a church, but there is still some renovations that need to take place. Along with the necessary cosmetic changes that need to take place, we now also must furnish the facility with it’s ministry tools, resources,  and equipment; everything from toilet paper to sound and video equipment. This process begins now. If you would like to deposit a seed into the life of this ministry, there are 3 ways we can immediately use your help. 
  1. We have many labor needs for those able to do painting, carpentry, and electrical work.
  2. Resource Donations: Anything from building materials, to office supplies, children’s toys and furnishings, business or lounge furniture, etc. We have lists. Just ask.
  3. If you’re not able to give of your time or make resource donations, we ask you to consider contributing financially to our launch budget. That can be done 2 ways. A: We accept checks made out to Rejuvenate Church or cash and can be mailed to PO Box 51621, Piedmont, SC 29673. B: You can give very securely by debit or credit card through the online giving feature of our website, found here. 
All contributions are 100% tax deductible and will be used to push the dream of Rejuvenate Church. 
If you are interested in helping in some way, please contact us by phone at 864-634-8264 or click here to send us a message through our contact page.
It Starts Now
Beginning the week of September 23, all activities and offices will be moved to the new location; this includes all ongoing Fellowship Groups, intercessory prayer, launch meetings, etc., as well as, all labor and construction that will be taking place over the next period of weeks.
Thank You!
We are so grateful for the many of you that have prayed for us, supported us with your words of faith and encouragement and all that have contributed financially to the DREAM! RC would not be at the landmark moment that it’s at now without you. We celebrate God’s blessings, our new home, and your partnership. There’s work to be done!
Pictures of some of the inside of our property can be viewed below. If you have questions or would like more information regarding Rejuvenate Church, please visit us on our website at RejuvenateChurch.com. You can also get latest information from our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.

Just Keep Praying

PrayerI just want to take a minute to encourage you. If you’ve ever dealt with a long-standing problem; had an illness that you’ve battled what seems like forever or you’ve had a persistent need that you feel you’ve been praying about for so long and have never gotten an answer from God. Don’t quit praying and faithing.
I don’t always understand why God works the way He does or in the time He does, but He does work. And because you didn’t get an answer or a touch yesterday, doesn’t mean today’s not the day. Give each day an opportunity to be the miracle moment, through continual prayer and faith.
I want to share a quick story with you. Please know that my sharing this is not done to draw attention to myself or to celebrate anything “I’ve” done, rather to encourage you to continue to trust God in the moments that you want to give up praying the most.
Yesterday, at a church, I had a woman come up to me after service that had been trying to find me for 3 months. That long ago, in this same church, I had a chance to pray with this lady. When she came to me that morning, 3 months ago, she began telling me that she had been suffering from severe headaches, daily, for 2 years. Now, if you know me personally and what my wife has been through with migraines, you know the irony in God sending this lady to me to pray for her. I remember, as she shared her struggle with me in that altar, laughing at God under my breath; certainly not at her struggle, but at the fact God would send this headache laden lady to me, to pray for her, while my own home couldn’t even conquer the same issue. 
Anyway, she had tried everything the doctors directed; she was taking tons of medication to attempt to function in life, but really had no life and was losing all hope in her prayers. But she didn’t give up and took one more chance at an agreement in prayer. 
We prayed together that morning in that altar and by her words yesterday, she told me as she left that altar she knew God healed her. Since that morning 3 months ago, after 2 years of debilitating headaches, she has not dealt with another one. She’s not taken another gram of medication and she is enjoying life again.
God answered her persistent step of faith that morning. She came broken, hurt, in pain, tired, wondering if God would ever respond and if her life would ever be normal again, and because she didn’t give up in her prayers and in her faith, God touched her life. In a moment it all went away. 
I tell you that just to say, don’t give up on your prayers and your faith in the Almighty. I know you’re tired of dealing with whatever it is you’re having to go through; I know you want answers, I know you need help and yet each day seems as if nothing’s changing. Be strong. Don’t lose hope in God and your prayers to Him. He is Alpha AND Omega; which means that He not only saw the beginning of your struggle but will be there to see you overcome your struggle. Keep praying today. Keep believing today. Because today could be the day that it all changes in moment.

Don’t Get The Story Twisted

Love RevolutionEvery year, at this time, pastors, Sunday school teachers, small group leaders, etc are preparing to share the Easter message. What a message it is! It is the single most monumental event in history. But I want you to see it from a different perspective.

The story culminates on Easter Sunday morning as we celebrate death’s defeat through the most powerful, life-giving moment of Christ’s resurrection. What a moment that had to be, as everything relating to death, destruction, decay, sickness and weakness, etc, literally shook with fear as a massive stone drew back its curtain and the heaven’s announced the greatest encore there’ll ever be. But that moment was never a possibility without the cross. There will be crosses hung, lit, elevated and celebrated all over the world over the next few days.

With the image of these crosses will be taught a murder story; graphic and gory in nature. Hateful, bitter and evil will be adjectives used to describe Roman officials and Jewish leaders; they’ll be slammed and slandered, put on trial, in the words of many believers across the world and held accused in the hearts of men and women for the cold-blooded killing of Jesus. There’s no doubt, that it’s the most brutal death anyone has ever suffered. But it didn’t happen the way that you think.

I want to point out 3 decision moments in scripture that bring focus to this Easter story. Without going into great detail concerning each, they are as follows:

  1. The Garden Decision ( Luke 22:42 “Father, if it is Your will take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours be done”
  2. The Arrest Decision (John 18:4-8 “Jesus…went forward and said to them, ‘Whom are you seeking?’ …..’I am He’ ….’I am He’….’I have told you that I am He.'”
  3. The Death Decision (John 19:10-11 “Then Pilate said to Him….’Do you not know that I have power to take your life and power to release you?’ Jesus answered, ‘You could have no power at all against me unless it had been given you…”

These three critical moments give an understanding that at any time, Jesus had the power and the authority by decision, to abort what was about to transpire. He could have made a decision in the garden to bypass the will of God and not accept the task at hand. He could have made a decision, as Judas conspired against Him with a mountainside of soldiers, not to allow these men to arrest Him, yet He willfully gave Himself up. He could have made a decision to walk away from Pilate, who had no ability to stop Him, yet He stood His place and gave His life up. All because of you.

Be careful of the mental picture and the emotions you allow yourself to develop against those involved in this historical event. This was no murder, it was a sacrifice. It has been typed, many times, as a tragic crime story, when it fact, it’s a passionate, love story. Jesus was no victim to the plots of evil leaders, He was a radical, leading a love revolution, one that He chose.

For Jesus loved the world so much, that He gave Himself as a sacrifice, that whosoever would believe in Him, would not be overcome by death and destruction but have resurrection life, eternally. Be a part of the revolution this Easter!

Uncommon Connections

“So they went, and came to the house of a harlot named Rahab, and lodged there. 2And it was told the king of Jericho, saying, “Behold, men have come here tonight from the children of Israel to search out the country.” 3So the king of Jericho sent to Rahab, saying, “Bring out the men who have come to you, who have entered your house, for they have come to search out all the country.” 4Then the woman took the two men and hid them. So she said, “Yes, the men came to me, but I did not know where they were from. 5And it happened as the gate was being shut, when it was dark, that the men went out. Where the men went I do not know; pursue them quickly, for you may overtake them.” 6(But she had brought them up to the roof and hidden them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in order on the roof.)” – Joshua 2:1-6
God has a crazy way of doing things. You never know the pockets of people and places that He hides the keys to your destiny. In our common way of living we tend to hang on to the people we like and agree with and discard the ones that live adversely to us and hold different attitudes and opinions than what we possess. Sometimes we call those people, enemies.
The problem is that God doesn’t see people as enemies, the way we do, therefore the people and situations He chooses to use are hand-picked by an unbiased selection. When we make the decision to see others a little more through His perspective, it opens up another dimension of possibilities for our own lives. More keys to unlock doors of purpose become available.
Rahab, a prostitute, who not only was an enemy to Israel as a Gentile woman, whose people stood in the way of their dreams, but her lifestyle was, also,  adverse to that of the Israelites, was the central figure in providing God’s people with a vital connection to their destiny. She held a key to their promised land.
If you have a dream that’s anything worth dreaming about; an uncommon dream, you’re going to have to begin to realize that your key connections to those dreams becoming reality, can often come from uncommon places.
Don’t count anyone out. Love your enemies. Never burn bridges. Value connections. The people you put off, many times, may be the people you can never replace. Lost keys to doors of dreams. Pray for wisdom, discernment, clarity to see through the mess of people that you would and have generally discarded and take advantage of every connection that God provides you.
Wake up tomorrow with a new perspective and a renewed focus to find those hidden keys of opportunity that have been disguised as enemies.

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

What I’m about to post will challenge some people, especially those tied to a system, a program or a tradition. I want to challenge you to do something simple, yet necessary; reevaluate your house of worship and it’s leader/s. We will often spend hours and days evaluating purchases, insurance providers, business decisions, doctors offices, etc etc, but it’s never even crossed our minds to evaluate our church body with the same diligence and with the expectation that if it’s not matching the biblical charge of a church, we make a change. Why? You have a right and a responsibility to ensure that your church body and it’s leaders are operating, not as you desire, but by the direction of God.

I want to peek at a passage of scripture that’s used quite frequently by the avid churchgoer and pulpiteer, alike, when referencing the command to attend church.  Hebrews 10:25 says, “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves, as is the manner of some.” It is, of course, saying that we have a responsiblity, as believers and followers of Christ the head, to not forsake the gathering of the church which is called the body.  This verse, while very true, has been used in countless tactics of manipulation to coerse the non-believer or non-attender into getting in church. This passage makes something very clear in it’s meaning; we need each other. But what do we need each other for? This is where I believe your evaluation needs to come in.

When that scripture has been mentioned, never have I heard anyone finish what the scripture says or even quote the verse before, when commanding people to not forget to attend church. The continuation of verse 24 says, “but exhorting one another;” The word exhort means to strongly encourage or urge to do something.  Verse 24 says, “And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works.” This brings me to a very brief but distinct point and challenge.

The body of believers that you are assembling with and the leader/s that you are assembling under are important; attending church regularly is important, but that assembly is necessary to encourage you and challenge you to become something more in Christ, on your way to pursuing God’s vision for you as a Kingdom citizen.  Take this quick litmus test:

  • Does your pastor and the circle of people you are closely connected to in your church, urge and excite you to become more than you are?
  • Is it a place that your gifts are being discovered and stirred?
  • Do they refuse to allow you to sit, comfortably, in a church service each week without falling prey to mediocrity and just being a part of the crowd?
  • Are your leaders and church partners a regular source of joy and encouragement, stirring up love and support as you grow and develop?
  • Are you challenged to become more because of the body you’re connected to?

My suggestion is that you reevaluate; make yourself answer these questions and be honest with the results. Dissension, division, pain, aggravation and insecurity unfortunately, find their way in many of our churches and leaders, and if we’re not careful we’ll subtly find ourselves dying in their influence because we remain connected out of our loyalty or comfortability, but God has an incredible plan for you and wants to connect you with the right people that can shape you to achieve these dreams. If you’re not being encouraged and challenged to grow, maybe it’s time to rethink what you’re connected to!

My Quick Thought That’s Too Long For Social Media Platforms..

Just a quick note; not even really length worthy to be deemed a “blog,” but sometimes I get a little too long worded for 140 characters of Twitter, so I move to the freedoms of WordPress.

I was reading in 1 Corinthians, chapter 4 verse 1, to be exact, and a portion of this verse really jumped out at me.  “Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.”

Stewards of the mysteries of God….

It’s such a shame for us to have access into something so powerful and priceless as the mysteries of God and do one of two things; fail to take care, embrace and implement the revelations we’ve been given and/or fail to realize the stockpile of revelation that’s waiting, available to us, that we never care to pursue God for.  God’s revelations, mysteries, are not just for us to have a little better understanding of life, a better historical perspective of the Bible or a better understanding of the point God wants to make, they are keys to the Kingdom.  Each bit of information that God entrusts you with, are strategic nuggets for you to make your environment look more like His.

You are an agent of change. You may not realize it and you may not embrace it, but God has created and placed you, strategically, to be an agent of change; changing the perfect world that was corrupted and weakened, back into the created environment that He originally intended. This is an impossible task without pursuing God and grabbing onto His mysteries.

Don’t waste what you have VIP access to.  It’s a Biblical fact that God will bless and create opportunities for those that are good stewards.  Stop to listen to God, look for where God’s working, moving and if you’re having trouble hearing or seeing…get closer.

When God Speaks

When God speaks to us, He speaks to our “real” person, not the person others see or how we see ourselves. He’s talking to that Kingdom man or woman inside of you; the original intent of our being. That’s why when God speaks, tells you to do something or drops dreams and vision into your spirit, and it seems foreign, crazy or impossible to you, you’re trying to process in the natural what you first need to grasp in the Kingdom.

When you transition your thinking to Kingdom first, you’ll be a large part of making things happen “on earth as it is in heaven.”
