THE PRICE HE PAID

When the Lord, the Master Potter, first finds you in the potter’s field, you are a broken vessel in need of salvation. He gently picks you up and carries you back to the Potter’s house. “Even though you are a shattered clay vessel and all your hopes and dreams have been destroyed,” He tells you, “I have a vision and a destiny for your life.”

He takes a rock and begins pounding your broken pieces of clay into fine dust. When you cry out in protest, He explains with great compassion, “I must take out all the rocks, thistles, thorns and foreign matter—all the debris you have picked up on the highway of life.”

Next, He carefully places the clay dust in large bins and pours in the clear living water that proceeds from the throne of God. He drenches you until you’ve absorbed this living water into every pore of your being. You begin to feel His love as never before.

Thanks to  Him- Anna Mae McPhail singing 2010

SUBTRACTING TO MULTIPLY

Fasting-subtracting food or a portion of our normal routine to spend time with God.

  • giving up impure motives
  • facebook
  • twitter
  • texting
  • video games

Adding

  • time with God
  • meditation
  • cleansing of the heart
  • truthfulness
  • willingness
  • submission

This is the time leading up to Easter- the week when Jesus died to set us free.  A time of celebration.

Subtracting the world, adding Jesus multiplies you into the anointing power!

FROM GLORY TO GLORY

Bishop Tony Miller – Okla – said – (on facebook)

“If you recall the events that led to the announcement that Moses had died, you will remember that it was God who took Moses up to the mountain to show him the land of promise and there He buried him. It was obvious to God and should be to us that there are things in our lives that God must bring to a close in order to move us on to the next level of promise. How many times have we all clung to a former glory because it was familiar or comfortable when the call was to “arise and cross this Jordan”!

May I challenge those of you who are reading to remember that the pathway to fulfillment and fruitfulness demands that we be willing to give up where we are and who we are at this present moment in order to become and possess what we were destined for. It amazes me that so many spirit-filled believers that God has given the keys to a new house are always being found at their old address. Get out of there! It is time to move on. There is much promise to be realized!”

Donna Orbach speaker from Rochester Michigan, last night in Essex said “2 Cor 3:17,18

17Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty

18But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Donna said there is much more joy in embracing what God is doing than acknowledging the devil. Abide in Him. The process of change is difficult, but it produces in us glory.

God changes us from glory to glory …by the Spirit.”

She also said about Ps 105: Joseph –

Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of bread.

17He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant:

18Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:

19Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.

This was such a good word.

THIS TRUTH HAS BEEN LOST —

Encourage Yourself – Anna Mae McPhail singing 2009

Your life can change if you think right and believe right. Believe the word of God.

Taking the Word of God and speaking it over your life. Praying the scriptures.

This truth has been lost to the body of Christ. So much could be accomplished for the Kingdom of God if Christians would do this. Stand on the Word.

DO WHAT YOU SAY? Mark 11: “but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” 24Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”

25And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

God is a God that answers prayer because we desire, we pray, we believe and we receive. This is absolute truth.

So much is not being done for the Kingdom because Christians are blinded to the fact that their dominion has already been secured. We were created to rule!….and reign.

You say I don’t know if I believe that. (in that case it won’t happen in your life if you do not believe) Let me explain from the Word of God.

“And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:” Eph 2:16

The problem is — laziness – playing instead of praying, playing instead of praying therefore despondency, defeat, hopelessness, being over run with the devil’s lies. Believing lies instead of TRUTH.

Also leaning on others like evangelists, prophets, pastors and failing to press on toward the mark yourself.

Philippians 3:14
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Some run here and there for a Word from sooth-sayers, and prophets for hire. While refusing to hear authority in their life. God has placed authority in your life, and who you honour has alot to do with being honoured of God.

1 Sam 2:30 for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.

Here is the Word I have for you today.

Get the Word yourself friend!!! The Word you hold in your hand (Holy inspired scriptures the HOLY BIBLE, the living Word) has everything you need.

Follow J E S U S. Do everything he commanded you to do, and your victory is guaranteed. There is no defeat in Jesus.

An infallible man is not your answer…JESUS is your answer.

This is the Word! You are more than a conqueror.

Romans 8:37
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

This is the Word – Keep standing —Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. EPH 6:13

Hebrews 10:36: For you have need of ENDURANCE, so that when you have done the will of God, you WILL receive what He has promised

Colossians 4:2: DEVOTE yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving

Ephesians 6:18: And pray in the Spirit ON ALL OCCASIONS with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and ALWAYS KEEP ON PRAYING for all the saints

So when I say speak truth over your circumstances, this is what I am saying.

Take the word of God over your life, and say I am more than a conqueror according to the truth of your Word. The Bible is absolute truth. I believe it today. It’s for me. Every promise is mine, and then some…… I am seated with you, I am blessed, according to Your Word.

I am the Lord that healeth thee —-is the Word. I speak that over my illnesses and diseases, and I believe it totally. I receive it totally. I am serving a healer today.

I give God praise and glory that I am a conqueror and that I am delivered completely from my infirmities, according to the Word of God.

The truth has set me free. I am entirely free from stress, worry. I am completely free from a burned out mentality to a “head and not the tail” mentality. In Jesus Name.

I praise God today that my needs financially are completely met according to your riches. I have no worries, I have all my bills paid, I have food in my cupboard and clothes in my closet. I share with others the abundance I have been blessed with.

Philippians 4:19
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

If you can change your believing, God will change your life.
