This teaching uproots some of the religious lies that often hinder people in the body of Christ from having intimate fellowship with God or receiving from Him through prayer. Many times believers have a wrong image of God and/or of themselves rather than identifying with the truth of God’s love and faithfulness and of our new identity in Christ. This message is to help guide people into the truth of God’s saving grace and His abundant provisions for us.

The Holy Spirit is a love gusher!! The phrase “poured out” is also sometimes translated as “shed abroad,” but God has given us so much more than a drop, more than a trickle, more than even a full glass of his love! It’s important for us to see that the rivers of life that spring forth out of our belly (The Holy Spirit-John 7:38) are GUSHING rivers!!! Father God loved you so much that He emptied heaven for you when He sent Jesus! He sent you the FULLNESS of GRACE and TRUTH!! (Mal 3) Every provision from God is given lavishly, in abundance, too much, more than enough, overflowing! It’s so important for believers to have this right image in our soul, lest we receive only that which we believe. God’s love for you is ABUNDANT! [Mat 26:28 NIV] 28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. [Tit 3:4-6 NIV] 4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior,

With God Himself living inside of us, why wouldn’t we want Him heading up our prayer life? If you are a born-again believer, you have the Holy Spirit living in you! The same spirit who raised Jesus from the dead is living in YOU! I would say He’s the one we want teaching us how to pray and what to pray, and even praying for us about things we don’t even know about that He knows need attention. Many Christians are limiting themselves and limiting God’s intervention in their life by praying only with their mind instead of accessing the gift of the Holy Spirit within them and the supernatural prayer language He gives to every believer. This message shares some of the many benefits to praying in tongues (praying in the spirit) as well as testimony of the great power and effectiveness in praying in surrender to the Holy Spirit. A free syllabus is available for download at www.prayerschoolcommunity.com Just click on the “teaching notes” tab and then click on the title of the message. Here’s a little extra as well: After Jesus had died and been resurrected, He appeared to His disciples and emphasized the importance for them to wait for the promised gift of the Holy Spirit: Acts 1:4: On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. He shared with them before His death that He had to die and that it was better for them if He did…and part of that reason was because through his death and resurrection, they could then receive the promised gift of the Holy Spirit along and He would empower each of them personally: Luke 24:49: I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.” Peter along with the other disciples received this gift and were baptized in the Holy Spirit and then brought the gift to others: Acts 2:38: Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. We NEED the Holy Spirit. We need His counsel, protection, wisdom, guidance, peace, joy, and everything He give us. He is our teacher and we can’t even pray effectively without Him: [Rom 8:26 ESV] 26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. [Act 2:4 ESV] 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. [Act 10:44-46 ESV] 44 While Peter was still saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell on all who heard the word. 45 And the believers from among the circumcised who had come with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out even on the Gentiles. 46 For they were hearing them speaking in tongues and extolling God. The promised gift of the Holy Spirit comes with the gift of a supernatural language unique to the believer and the Holy Spirit. This gift and supernatural prayer referred to as “praying in the spirit” or “praying in tongues” builds us up, encourages us, and enables us to pray in power even over things our mind does not know anything about.

John 14:26 (NIV) 26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Romans 8:26-28 (NIV) 26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. 27 And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will. 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection made a way for us to be completely restored into right relationship with Father God through the gift of salvation. When we become born-again, we are born of the Spirit of God and given His very spirit to live inside of our spirit. The Holy Spirit is our best friend, our defender, our protector, our counselor, our teacher…we have the Great I Am Himself living in us! He wants to help us in every area of our lives and always leads us along the BEST pathway (Psalm 32:8) when we will seek His counsel within us and listen to His voice. The Holy Spirit will always leads us into the whole truth in a situation and reveal things to us we can’ t know on our own. He leads us to the root of every issue in prayer. [Jhn 16:13 NKJV] 13 “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own [authority], but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. When we trust in God’s love and faithfulness and in the leading of His Holy Spirit within us, we will always experience the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness and self-control. God is love (1 John 4) and He will always lead us in the flow of His love which never fails (1 Cor 13:8).

About this teaching:

Prayer as the bible teaches is simply about communicating with God and coming into AGREEMENT with His thoughts, words, images and emotions. God has given us His Word (the Bible) to reveal His heart to us and lead us life and life more abundant (John 10:10) that He sent Jesus Christ (the word made flesh) to make us partakers of through His covenant of grace.

Many messages about prayer have gone out over the centuries, but a good number of them are not rooted in Christ who is the fullness of grace and truth. They are not rooted in the understanding of the finished work of Christ and all that is ours as believers of Christ.

Instead of simply coming into agreement with God’s Word and speaking forth what is already ours in Christ, many people are begging God as if it isn’t already His will for them to receive His promises. Many people think their personal behaviors affect God’s disposition towards them rather than understanding that salvation (which includes abundant life on this earth) comes to us as a gift (Eph 2:8-9) as we believe upon our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ.

This series brings out the heart of God in prayer which is simply for us to have conversation with Him rooted in grace (His favor and goodness we can’t earn, but He has for us anyway because of His great love for us).

Like with a water filtration system, or a reverse osmosis system in your home, the filter purges out the impurities from the water so that what you drink is pure and it tastes better too! The filter removes all those things that were getting mixed in the water, or that other people had added in like harsh chemicals, preservatives, etc.

There are toxic thoughts, beliefs and ideals that have gotten into the body of Christ for centuries concerning prayer, and in this series, grace is working like that water filter and purging out all the toxic lies and beliefs that have been hindering people in their prayer life and communion with God.

About this teaching:

This teaching will set you FREE from all condemnation and lies of the enemy that have been holding you back! God’s love is miracle power to us and is meant to do the work of driving out fear, worry, anxiety, oppression, depression, sickness, disease, poverty, etc. Yet, many Christians do not KNOW God’s love for them, and the enemy comes to rob them from the miracle power of God’s love by trying to get believers to buy into his lies and condemnation.
God desires that we would KNOW him personally, not through religious traditions, not only based on what others have told us, but to KNOW Him through personally experience. John 17:3 says: “And this is eternal life, that they know (ginosko – Strong’s Concordance G1097 – know absolutely through personally experience) you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.

God IS love. God doesn’t only HAVE love for us, but He IS love, and He desires that we would KNOW him (love) personally. “Anyone who does not love does not know (ginosko) God, because God is love. 9 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. 10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” (1 John 4:8-10.

Propitiation = made us right with God, caused us to be pleasing before Him forevermore because of His own perfect sacrifice through Jesus Christ.

It is the KNOWN truth that sets us free! Know God’s love for you today!! (John 8:32)

About this teaching:

God simply desires for us to partake of His goodness. He has done everything He could possibly do for us in order to give us the best life here on earth and for eternity. He sent Jesus to heal us and free us from all the bondage of the curse (poverty, sickness, disease, confusion, oppression, etc.) but if we aren’t partaking of Him and all He has supplied for us in Christ, then it’s as if what He sent Jesus to do on our behalf was in vein. God has given us a savior to provide a continual way of escape for us from the corruption in the world and to enable us to receive His grace and peace in abundance!

2 Peter 1:2-4: May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.3 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, 4 by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.

About this teaching:

In Exodus 25:30 God reveals His heart for His people to come to Him and eat of His presence and provision daily. His kingdom is of righteousness, peace and joy! He wants His people to be refreshed in His presence personally every day and to eat fresh bread! God knows we have needs and He desires to meet them! The bread of Presence mentioned in Exodus was a foreshadowing of Jesus Christ who is our bread of life (John 6:35).

God never wants us to try to live on stale bread! He has DAILY bread for us to eat, and it is provided to us through Jesus Christ. Fresh life, fresh joy, fresh peace, fresh wisdom…We see God’s heart for us to personally receive from Him fresh every day when He fed the Israelites fresh manna in the wilderness and provided it every morning. They couldn’t try to store it up and save it for the next day…it would rot. God wanted them to know He was faithful and would provide fresh for them every day, so He was teaching them to trust Him by providing for them faithfully.

In Exodus 25:30, God instructed the Israelite priests to “Put the bread of the Presence on this table to be before me at all times.” This wasn’t for God, but it was for man. This bread was a symbol of Jesus Christ who would come as the bread of Presence and bread of life for whosoever would believe and receive Him.

John 1:14: The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

About this teaching:

Exodus 33:14 “And he said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

Psalm 16:11 “You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

Revelation 21:3 “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.”

1 Samuel 21:1-6 – (synopsis) David who was anointed to be king but was persecuted by Saul and on the run for his life was asked by the priest when he showed up alone at Nob, “Why are you alone? Why is no one with you?”…but it was there he ate the “bread of the Presence.”

In the new covenant, God has made US His dwelling place!! Not only does His presence go with us, but He lives INSIDE of us. It is His very presence within us and being joined together with Him as ONE BEING that is what truly changes us.

The Word of God IS God, but sometimes it’s as if Christians have forgotten that the Word was made flesh and that the Word made His dwelling among us…God is STILL dwelling among us, and even greater now, He lives IN us.

John 1:14: The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

About this teaching:

God’s nature is unchanging. His love for us is unchanging. His disposition towards us in grace is unchanging. Grace is God’s favor that we did nothing to earn and His grace ABOUNDS towards us…His plan for our life through Christ is that we are enriched in EVERY way, and the pathway for this is His grace. The problem is often that rather than receiving the undeserved, unearned grace provisions Jesus died for us to receive, Christians are looking to their own personal performance to try to earn them God’s promises. The only way to receive anything from God is by faith as a grace gift. We must know we can do nothing at all to deserve or earn God’s promises, and as long as we keep trying to, they will continue to be unfulfilled in our life. Our healing, our peace, our joy, our provision…every single promise has been given to us in Christ, and the only way to receive is to recognize our neediness for Jesus and to praise God for His love and faithfulness towards us.

[2Co 9:8-12 ESV] [8] And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. [9] As it is written, “He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.” [10] He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. [11] You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God. [12] For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God.

About this teaching:

1 John 5:4: “…everyone born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world: our faith. 5Who then overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.…” The way to overcome doubt and unbelief in our life is not through our own religious effort of trying to deny a negative situation or circumstance or to try to convince ourselves in our mind not to think on it…the way to victory is by faith! Matsa is a Hebrew word that means “find.” This teaching shares from Proverbs 4:20-23 and through personal testimony about how God’s Word when it’s found (discovered, comes forth, appears, meets us, delivers us, and is taken hold of by us personally) becomes life “to all who FIND it.” Matsa (finding) God’s truth and receiving it in our heart is what drives out the doubt and unbelief from our lives. When we know the truth, the truth sets us free!! The only way to experience freedom from a negative circumstance in our life and the victory that God has already supplied to us in His grace, is for us to personally seek Him and take hold of the simple truth He reveals to our heart amidst that situation. When we choose to believe God and rely on Him and His faithfulness, rather than what makes sense to our natural senses, we can rest assured faith in God will cause us to be overcomers every time!

About this teaching:

James 5:15 tells us the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up…the topic of faith is one that has perhaps been the most taught and yet the least understood. This specific teaching, as well as this entire series on faith, takes a closer look into the Greek language for greater understanding of what Jesus teaches His disciples concerning faith. It is important for us to have a clear understanding based solely on scripture and the true meaning of what is being spoken, rather than man’s interpretation. As Christians we are called to LIVE by faith, and in order for us to live by it, it’s certainly helpful for us to have a clear understanding about it. As always, God speaks in simple terms to us…it’s man that complicates things. Take a listen and let your heart be enlightened by God’s Word as the Holy Spirit ministers truth.

About this teaching:

Psalm 91:12 NKJV: He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “[He is] my refuge and my fortress; My God in Him I will trust.”

Through Jesus Christ, God has given us access into the secret place of the Most High…El Elyon, “God Most High” has prepared a secret place for us in the inner chamber of His heart. It’s a secret place in Him not seen by the naked eye, or any other man…it’s a secret place in Him where we see into the Father’s heart through the eyes of Jesus Christ.

When we keep the focus of our hearts and minds on living in the secret place of the heart of God, we will be like the Word prophetically spoke of God’s people in Jer 17:7-8: “Blessed [with spiritual security] is the man who believes and trusts in and relies on the Lord and whose hope and confident expectation is the Lord. “For he will be [nourished] like a tree planted by the waters, that spreads out its roots by the river; and will not fear the heat when it comes;
But its leaves will be green and moist. And it will not be anxious and concerned in a year of drought nor stop bearing fruit.”

About this teaching:

Many times people say, “I’m just trusting in God…” and yet, there isn’t real certainty about what they are believing or what they are really saying. This teaching helps sheds some light on what it means to trust God according to how the bible teaches so that we can ask ourselves, “Am I really?” God is always calling out to us, and when we respond in trust, there is a definite course or path God lays before us, beginning in our hearts. He places our feet on solid ground in His word, and calls us into our inheritance in Christ. Abraham trusted God. Moses trusted God. Joshua trusted God. Samuel trusted God. These are only a few of the people mentioned in the bible…but they all had something in common. They all heard the Word of the Lord speaking into their hearts and believed and received it. They were far from perfect, but the Word believed and received in man’s heart will always rise above man’s imperfections. Trusting in God produces certainty in our hearts and earthly evidence of that which we have received as spiritual truth in our heart.

About this teaching:

God’s heart is for us to live in the flow of His grace. Jesus says in John 7:37-39, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. [38] Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” [39] By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive.

The flow of grace is the flow of the Holy Spirit, and like a current of a river, we can know and identify the flow of grace…In grace, it’s like flowing with the current, but when we go against the flow, it’s like trying to swim upstream.

This teaching looks at the flow of grace exhibited in the book of Samuel through the lives of Samuel, Saul, Jonathan and David. David is a picture of Christ, and through his life, we see the evidence of grace clearly at work. There are roughly 40 workings of grace seen and highlighted through this teaching and the syllabus notes for every believer to acknowledge is made available to them as well through Jesus Christ.

About this teaching:

Your heart plays the movie screen of your life. This teaching shares about your soul and the way we project the images in our soul into our everyday life. What we believe in our soul, is what we experience as a reality on this earth. Our spirit is perfect when we become born-again, and our spirit is in perfect agreement with God. Our soul, however, is still in the process of being perfected, and it is made up of our own thoughts, images, words and emotions…as we point our soul towards God to receive HIS thoughts, words, images, and emotions, He shines light into the dark places that have been keeping us in bondage. God’s desire is to be intimate with us. He is calling out to us daily to be intimate with Him. John 17:3 tells us that eternal life is that “they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” This word for “know” in the Greek is ginosko which signifies knowing something in the most absolute sense possible through personal experience. God WANTS us to know Him personally. He doesn’t want us to just know about Him through what someone else tells us about Him, He wants us to fellowship with Him on a very real and personal level through His Word (the bible). He wants to fill our soul with His light and to give us a long and satisfying life on this earth as well as for eternity. The way God’s promises become a reality in our life on earth is through receiving His projected images into our soul.

About this teaching:

God created us to see spiritually. Through the curse, man fell to a limited natural life led by his 5 senses. Jesus Christ redeemed us from the curse, and as a born-again Spirit, the eyes of our hearts are continually enlightened as we meditate on God’s Word. Psalm 110:130 says: “The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple.” We meditate on the Word until the light gets in! The light of God that shines into the dark places is what brings manifestation, because the light of God causes us to be able to see into the spiritual realm and to see all the glorious provisions that are there for us that have been supplied by God’s grace. Jesus (the Word) is the light for us in this world that causes us to SEE. He tells us in John 8:12: “Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Hallelujah! No matter how dark or empty a situation or area of our life looks in the natural, when we speak, “let there be light” as God did, and we meditate on that light, the darkness flees and God’s manifested glory is seen.

About this teaching:

John 15:3-4 The Passion Translation:
The words I have spoken over you have already cleansed you. So enter into life-union with me, for I have entered into life-union with you. For as a branch severed from the vine will not bear fruit, so your life will be fruitless unless you live your life intimately joined to mine.
This message brings out how God views intimacy with us as partnership through His Holy Spirit. As we participate with God in HIS thoughts and desires, we experience Him taking possession of our soul in those areas in a very intimate way.

About this teaching:

“Yet, I will not be alone, for my Father is with me,” Jesus told His disciples in John 16:32. He was getting ready to go to the cross, and He shared with them that He knew they would all leave him alone…but Jesus wasn’t discouraged, and He didn’t hold it against His friends, for He understood in His heart there was truly only one person who would never leave Him alone, and that was the person of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus’ intimate relationship with The Father kept Him in perfect peace and relieved His soul from anguish in times of distress. We saw in Luke22:44 that when He sweat tears that were like great drops of blood, the one and only person who could truly give Him the overcoming strength and power He needed was the person of God the Father living in Him by His Holy Spirit. His closest friends on the earth fell asleep…and even He on His own didn’t have the strength to persevere, but through fellowship with Father God through His Spirit, He was strengthened in His darkest hour through that intimate relationship. Though Jesus was of course 100% God, we must remember that He was also 100% man and experienced what it was like to live as a man on this earth. He felt everything we’ve felt. He experienced everything we experience. He faced all the same challenges, frustrations and temptations, and the way He overcame and glorified God in all He did was through the intimacy He had with the Father.

It is important for us to have a clear understanding based solely on scripture and the true meaning of what is being spoken, rather than man’s interpretation. As Christians we are called to LIVE by faith, and in order for us to live by it, it’s certainly helpful for us to have a clear understanding about it. As always, God speaks in simple terms to us…it’s man that complicates things. Take a listen and let your heart be enlightened by God’s Word as the Holy Spirit ministers truth.

About this teaching:

Our entire Christian faith hinges on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Our confidence in anything God speaks into our heart should be based on the amazing truth that Jesus died and was raised again into new life. Apart from this belief and putting our confidence in this truth, all preaching, as well as our faith, is worthless…Paul himself tells us this himself:

1 Cor 15:13-14: 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is worthless, and so is your faith.

Romans 10:9: If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Every bit of salvation and being “saved” (sozo: delivered, healed, protected, preserved, made whole, etc.) is received in our hearts and made manifest only as we believe in our heart upon Jesus Christ and that He was raised from the dead.

Memorization of scripture doesn’t produce the fruit, man’s religion and self-effort doesn’t produce the fruit…only our belief upon Jesus Christ and His resurrection produces the fruit.
The Word is made flesh in our lives as we believe upon Christ’s resurrection. And when we believe upon Christ’s resurrection, we too are raised up into new life and into a new position in Christ in His righteousness.

About this teaching:

Prayer is about intimacy and closeness with God. God is not far away. His kingdom is not far away. His promises are not far away. Meditating on the Word (hearing it, digesting it, thinking on it, and speaking it) is meant to remind us of who our God is, of who we are in Him, and of what is ALREADY OURS in Christ. When we pray, we are not creating something with our prayers that didn’t already exist. Instead, we are enforcing what does already exist within God’s Word. God created everything all by Himself without any of our help, including every provision and promise He has given us in His Word. God leads us in prayer by the Holy Spirit into a place of understanding and realization that everything is already done and in finished form stored up for us in His heavenly storehouse. God finishes and then He begins. There is nothing He has left half undone. His plan for creation was not a contingency plan – nothing was contingent upon man for the creation of anything, but instead man was only given the responsibility to care for what was given to Him freely by God who had created it. Father God has been resting in His finished work since He finished creating man (we were His final masterpiece), and He has been inviting us to fellowship with Him in His resting place ever since.

About this teaching:

When the disciples saw that Jesus cursed the fig tree and that it had withered and died, He told his disciples to have faith in God…the Aramic to English translation reads: “Have God’s faith in you.” He revealed to us what the faith of God looks like when we possess it, or perhaps better said, when we allow His faith to possess us.

God has called us into relationship with Him as sons and daughters, and He has given us access into His kingdom as we enter like children. We must learn to trust in that relationship and our position as beloved children of God (not in our own works). God’s plans and purposes for our lives are revealed through a trusting relationship, not through mechanics and works. We are called to relationship with the person of Jesus Christ, and not only with His written Word. God has revealed Himself to us as the person of the God-head as the: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and He has adopted us to be His children so that He could call us His own. The Holy Spirit continually leads us into the LIVING hope we have in Jesus Christ through a divine supernatural substance called faith. Faith is the oxygen of our relationship with God that keeps our relationship going strong. Faith is the very breath of God unto us.

Be encouraged and refreshed in listening to the audio recording of :”Faith in a Sippy Cup.”

Father God loves to WOW His kids…look to Him to do for you what you cannot do for yourself…He loves to show off and reveal His love to you.

Faith is a gift given by Father God to His children. Faith is all about sonship. We can’t earn it. We can only receive it, and as the children of God, it is our right to receive freely. God is always giving Himself freely to His children. We set ourselves up to receive faith from our Abba Father by taking our position as His child (not only by declaration, but also by seeing in our own mind’s eye, and receiving in the core of our heart, that we belong to Him and are but a little child incapable of doing anything on our own). We receive faith as we hear the Word and are continually reliant upon our Abba Father to give it to us. We remain in awe of our loving Daddy who is always so faithful to provide.

[Mat 18:2-3 ESV] [2] And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them [3] and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

[Mat 18:4 ESV] [4] Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

About this teaching:

This teaching discusses faith as a gift given to mankind because of God’s great love and mercy towards us. Faith is a supernatural substance that comes to us from God and is never generated by man. (Hebrews 11:1, Romans 10:17) Faith is a real substance that originates from the spiritual, unseen realm and is imparted to us by God to bring us life and life more abundantly here on earth. Every promise God has made, He is faithful to perform and we receive these provisions by faith – by receiving His supernatural substance into our hearts.

[Heb 11:1 NKJV] [1] Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Faith is a real SUBSTANCE of God that has been given to every born again believer.

[Heb 10:38 NKJV] 38 Now the just shall live by faith…

God never intended for us to live by our own limited works on this earth; He gave us His FAITH to live by. He gave us very real heavenly substance within us to draw from through the Word of Christ. FAITH does the work in our lives as we allow it to. Our part is not to look at our faith, but instead to fix our eyes on Jesus Christ, and as we do, faith goes to work. We look to Jesus as the author and finisher of our faith as well as the author and finisher of every provision and good work on this earth. In Christ, it’s all been done and provided in the supernatural in FINISHED FORM. We simply receive the finished work of Christ and give birth to those manifestations from the unseen realm into the seen realm as we look upon Jesus. The Holy Spirit works within us as our eyes are on Jesus and we declare what He has done, and through us, the Holy Spirit births forth the manifestations of Jesus Christ.

About this teaching:

This teaching brings truth and clarity to the message of “faith without works is dead.” In hearing the message of truth, believers are set free from their own fruitless works of religion and self-effort and released into the works of faith God desires to birth through us.

[Heb 11:1 NKJV] [1] Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Faith is a real SUBSTANCE of God that has been given to every born again believer. Within our spirit, God has stored up the finished form of every spiritual and physical provision we would ever have need of on this earth and for eternity. He gave these things to us in the form of seed (the Word of God/Jesus Christ) and stored them up in our spirit. As the seed is released into our soul through divine from our born again spirit, it begins to manifest and take on natural form as the Holy Spirit empowers it to grow while He leads us to see what God has already provided to us through Jesus Christ. The more we trust in Him and His faith working in us, the more those faith provisions are made manifest in our lives from the inside out. Faith BIRTHS the things of God. Faith is designed to do the work, not man. Just as a seed within a mother’s womb naturally grows and the woman gives birth, these are also the workings of faith through the heart of man. The seed contains the power to produce, not man. Faith does the work, not man. When that seed is growing and faith is working, man naturally just pushes out the baby! Works naturally happen when faith is at work.

[Heb 10:38 NKJV] 38 Now the just shall live by faith…

God never intended for us to live by our own limited works on this earth; He gave us His FAITH to live by. He gave us very real heavenly substance within us to draw from through the Word of Christ. FAITH does the work in our lives as we allow it to. Our part is not to look at our faith, but instead to fix our eyes on Jesus Christ, and as we do, faith goes to work.

About this teaching:
3 John 1:2 NKJV says: “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
God’s desire expressed to us all throughout His Word is for us to prosper in health, in wealth, in joy, in peace, in relationships, in ALL things…and our outer prosperity is directly influenced by the way our SOUL is prospering.
God wants so much for us! He wants a better way of life for you than what you are living today!
We see all throughout the scriptures (as for instance in Jeremiah 29:11, John 10:10 and 2 Cor 1:20) that God has plans to prosper us and not to harm us; that He sent Jesus to give us life and life more abundantly; that no matter how many promises God has made, they are yes and Amen (so be it!) to us.

So where is the hang up? Why aren’t more Christians living healthy, wealthy, joyful, peaceful, full of wisdom and truth so much that they are pouring out into the lives of others out of their abundance?

This teaching looks at the difference between our spirit and soul and discusses how our SOUL (mind, will, emotions and what we are consciously thinking about) directly affects the quality of life we are experiencing today.

Jesus says in Matthew 11:28-29: 28Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Our soul is meant to be harnessed by the Word of God, Jesus Christ. As we learn how to rule over our soul through submitting it to Jesus, we experience more of the quality of life Jesus died for us to receive. Jesus came to heal God’s people and to make them whole…God desires that nothing be missing or broken in our lives…Jesus came to save our souls, and as our souls prosper, we find ourselves in good health and prospering in all things.

1 Pet 1:8-9: Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

About this teaching:

John 20:21-22: Again Jesus said to them, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent Me, so also I am sending you.” When He had said this, He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit…”

Does that sound familiar? The Greek word translated as “he breathed on” was only used once in the entire new testament in this place where Jesus Himself, just like Father God did in the garden, breathed onto the disciples and gave them the Holy Spirit. When we become born-again, we receive the promised gift of the Holy Spirit and the resurrected life in Christ!

This teaching is about becoming conscious of the supernatural life God has called us to live and the gift of the Holy Spirit divinely persuading us from the inside.

God never intended for us to live like dead men walking…He intended for us to live on this earth by faith…by His divine persuasions working inside of us and leading us continually along the best pathway for our life (Psalm 32:8). God sees what is in the unseen and He has given us His ability to do the same through the inner working of the Holy Spirit.

About this teaching:
In Mark 16:17 we read “These signs will accompany those who believe…” Believers (those who rely on Christ) have the Spirit of God living in them and their lives are meant to reflect God’s glory through manifested signs and wonders. This is part of the inheritance of the resurrection that is ours in Christ. No longer are we spiritually dead and living as victims to a cursed world. Once we become born-again in Christ, we receive the very spirit of God living inside of us empowering us and causing us to be victorious in every circumstance on this earth. Signs and wonders aren’t meant to be spectacular “events” that occur every now and then; instead they are meant to be evidenced in our daily lives to show the world the fruit of the risen Messiah, Jesus Christ. He came to deliver people from bondage, to protect them, to heal them, to give them life more abundantly, and to make them whole. When we believe upon Jesus Christ and rely on His Word and the finished work He accomplished on the cross for us, signs and wonders will accompany us! As believers, we should expect this and encourage one another as we give testimony of the power of the risen Christ within us.

About this teaching:
The story in the bible of the Samaritan woman at the well gives us a wonderful picture of how Jesus takes us through the process of believing and receiving. This is the longest recorded conversation recorded in the bible between Jesus and another person and it offers us great insight into the heart of our savior, as well as into our own hearts. As we look to the story of the Samaritan woman at the well, we can put ourselves in front of Jesus with our own personal issues and see Jesus revealing himself to us as our Messiah. We are encouraged to see that no matter what our circumstance, no matter how long we’ve been in it, Jesus is our way out. When we have a face to face conversation with the Messiah and our eyes are opened to who He really is, we finally receive all the “gift of God” has come to give us.

About this teaching:
The word “believe” is quite an important word in the Christian faith. In John 7:37-38, Jesus cries out to the “thirsty ones” telling them to believe in him and that those who believe in him would receive. In John 6:29 we’re told that the “work of God is that you believe in him whom he has sent.” So the bible teaches us that believing on Jesus leads to receiving, and it also fulfills the true work Father God has called us to. Does believing mean simply agreeing that something exists or is in fact what someone says it is, or is there something more to it? This teaching takes a closer look at the Greek meaning behind the word “believe” used by Jesus in the gospels to provide clarity once and for all on what it truly means to believe.

About this teaching:
Hebrews 4:3 says that God’s works have been finished since the creation of the world. He already made every provision, supplied every healing, and prepared every good thing for us, before He ever placed us in the garden. Gen 2:2 tells us that God has been resting since he finished those works. God is resting in His finished work, and He leads us by example showing us that we too are called to rest in His finished works. This teaching reveals the true resting place God has called us to dwell in with Him in those finished works by agreeing with His Word and trusting in Him. We were never meant to toil, and He has forever been calling us back into His resting place. We enter in through Jesus into the “finished works.”

About this teaching:
What do we do when we’re faced with opposition from man or a man regulated system that goes against God’s Word? How do we receive what God has promised despite man’s opposition? This teaching brings out 4 simple keys for believers to keep in mind when faced with opposition from man so we don’t forfeit what is promised to us by God. God’s promises supersede man’s rules and regulations. God’s Word always prevails. When we put our trust in God, He will not disappoint us.

About this teaching:
Jesus tells us in John 6:29 that the work of God is that “you believe in him whom he has sent.” Somewhere along the line many Christians have missed this…rather than seeing that what God calls work is “believing,” people have become overly concerned with their personal performance and “good works” and striving to earn something from God that has already been given to us in Jesus Christ. Faith comes to us as a gift, and so does every precious promise…(Ephesians 2:8). Our part in the process is to simply believe and receive what the word says as truth, and sometimes that takes work! Work because of the lies of the enemy, the lies of the flesh and the lies of the world. Every precious promise is already ours in Christ and as we believe upon Him, He possesses our hearts, our minds, our mouths, and our lives. When the promises possess us, we possess the promises!

The story of Abraham, our “father of faith,” provides great insight and encouragement to us as believers as we see that the “work” he got right was in believing God, but he made many mistakes in the natural “working” of his faith. He wasn’t credited righteousness because of his natural works; He was credited righteousness because He believed God (Romans 4:3). Paul makes it very clear that it had nothing to do with his natural works when he tells us in Romans 4:10-16 that Abraham was credited righteousness “before he was circumcised” – meaning before he acted out the belief in his heart.

This teaching brings to light to man’s imperfections but God’s continued love and faithfulness, mercy and grace that brings the promises to fruition in Abraham’s life and in the lives of his descendants (us) simply because he believed. God is calling us to believe upon Jesus and to believe what His word says…less focus on ourselves and more focus on Him. As we believe, we receive, and grace does the work in lining things up in our hearts and in our lives, causing us to come to a place of agreement and friendship with God. It’s in this place of agreement and friendship with God that the we receive the manifestation of God’s promises flowing freely.

About this teaching:
[Jhn 7:37-38 ESV] 37 On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.'”

[Jhn 20:30-31 ESV] 30 Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

From the greek word for “believe” we get a picture of what Jesus passionately cries out to us when he says, “Come to me and drink…” Jesus is saying, “Believe in me! Have faith in me! Credit me! Entrust yourself and your well-being to me! Commit yourself to me! Trust me! Put yourself in trust with me!” He desires to fill us up with Himself as we come to Him, and when we drink of Him, He fills us with His peace, joy, wisdom, healing, and an overall fulfillment of every good thing.

Jesus came to give us a better life than the one we were living before met Him. He came to give us life and life more abundantly! (John 10:10) He heals, strengthens and restores our heart, soul, mind and body as we simply choose to believe upon Him and receive His finished work on the cross.

About this teaching:
God desires for us to live in the tangible reality of His presence on an every day basis. God’s glory (the manifestation of his goodness) is experienced in our lives on earth as we connect to the resurrection of Christ and receive our position in Him as a child of God. Through God’s love for us and immersing our thinking and believing in what His word says about us (that we are loved and that God is well pleased with us) causes our hearts to be open to receive and to live in the reality of God’s goodness in our lives. Self condemnation and lies of the enemy try to hold us back and steal the abundant life God gave us in Christ. When we know and rely on the love God has for us, we are able to stand and maintain the position of victory that has been given to us in Christ. When we know our true Christ-ID we will walk in the newness of life that has been given to us in the resurrection.

About this teaching:

God’s desire for us is to live a FULL life in Him. Full of love, joy and peace in Him, not based on what is going on around us or our circumstances, but because we live in Him and He lives in us. His very presence alone brings us joy and peace as we trust in Him and that joy and peace is meant to be continual. Acknowledging God’s presence in us and amidst our situation is a very simple and practical way to live in the reality of His glory on an every day basis.

Ephesians 1:23 says: “And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ,
who fills all things everywhere with himself.”

God wants to fill your cup today and always! He wants you to overflow…so that you pour out His goodness onto all those around you as well.

About this teaching:

[1Co 15:45 ESV] Thus it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

[Eph 1:4-8 ESV] In love 5 he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight.

[Rom 8:1-2 ESV] 1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.

This message was delivered on Easter Sunday and there was a great amount of ministry to physical bodies for healing in the middle of this teaching that we cut out for video purposes, but there is still plenty of teaching here in the clip before and after.

When we take communion with Jesus, we are reminded that we who were once condemned for our sins are no longer condemned because of His blood that paid the price. Freedom in Christ belongs to all those who believe upon Him. There is no longer any condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus! His saving grace has given us the right to receive fully every precious promise to us in God’s word, because Jesus finished the work at the cross. His great love for us causes us to not want to sin, but even when we do, we can rest in confidence in knowing that Jesus already paid the price for our weaknesses.

About this teaching:

[Jhn 8:36 TPT] So if the revelation of being a son sets you free from sin, then become a true son and be unquestionably free!

[Jhn 8:31-32 NKJV] 31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

The word teaches us that its through a revelation of Christ and and who are in Him as children of God, that we experience freedom in our lives on this earth. When we abide in His Word (remain in it and continue in it rather than also continuing in thoughts that are contrary), we will know the truth (personally experience the fruit of the promise). By the power of God’s grace working in us, we can draw on the Holy Spirit to keep us thinking and speaking on the truth so that it is not only our spiritual reality, but also evident in our natural life.

About this teaching:

[1Jo 5:4-5 ESV] 4 For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And
this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the
world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

According to Revelation 12:11, we overcome the enemy by blood of the lamb (Jesus) and the Word of our testimony (meaning we proclaim our faith in what Jesus has done on our behalf). Too often Christians are trying in their own power to defeat sickness, poverty, oppression, fear, anxiety, etc. and losing. Jesus has already defeated the enemy, and His blood has already given every born again believer victory over all of the devil’s schemes and everything he would try to bring against us.
The way we live in freedom from captivity is by actively and continually relying upon Jesus for our salvation and believing upon Him and that He did a complete work on our behalf on the cross.

[2Co 3:15-18 NIV] 15 Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. 16 But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

Jesus tells us in John 16:7 that it is for our good that He goes away so that we could receive the promised gift of the Holy Spirit. He tells the disciples in Luke 24:49 to wait for the gift who will cloth them with power from on high before they go out to do anything.

In the church today, some have forgotten the importance of the Holy Spirit or have been led away by deception in fear provoked by lies of the enemy. The Holy Spirit is God’s promised gift of power to all who repent and come to Christ, and we can do nothing without Him. Yet, still today, Christians are trying to live without the Spirit, and they are failing miserably in the same sickness and disease, poverty, offense, broken relationships, etc. as those who are not saved.

There is no condemnation for us in Christ, so we don’t need to beat ourselves up about it when we realize we’ve neglected the Holy Spirit, but instead, this teaching provokes us to remember that if God thought it was important and necessary for us to have His Spirit, then so should we.

There is a promise for us to receive in John 3:34 that says God gives us the Spirit without limit. Praise Him and thank Him for that in your prayer life and allow the Holy Spirit to speak through you and to perfect and empower your prayers and your life!

A little about this teaching…

There are different levels we can “know” something….it’s one thing to say we “know” someone or something, and it’s another thing to really KNOW that someone or something personally.

When we know someone or something from our own personal, firsthand experience, then we have a “knowing” that is far more than head knowledge…it’s a tangible, real-life, “been there, done that, seen that” kind of reality. We can describe how it feels, how it looks, how it tastes, how it sounds…

This is the kind of relationship and reality God desires to have with every one of His kids, and He makes a statement about this in Hebrews 8:11: “And they shall not teach one his neighbor and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest.”

When you look at the original text of this verse in the Greek, you see that 2 different words for “know” are used here…the first “know” is the surface way we get to know something by head knowledge or someone else telling us…the second word is ginosko and refers to know through personal experience.

God has made a way for us to really KNOW Him personally, through a relationship founded in His son, Jesus Christ. Not the kind of “talk about God like we know Him” Christianity….but instead, through His Son, He gives us His Holy Spirit so that we can see and experience God’s true nature at work within us and through us.

God has given us “life and life more abundantly” (John 10:10) and He desires that we wouldn’t only have head knowledge about what the bible promises, but that we would have knowledge through personal experience.

Whom the son has made free is free indeed! God desires you to BE free…not just to know the word freedom, but to live it and know personally what it means to be free.

A little about this teaching…

The Greek words sózó and sótéria (which represent “saved” and “salvation”) speak volumes more than most Christians understand and have identified with.

The gift of salvation in Christ includes all that these words represent which is more than just receiving a promise that we get to go to heaven. In fact, each one of the benefits associated with these words reveals something for us that God knew we needed here on the earth.

It’s through understanding our true identity in Christ and all we have received within the gift of salvation that we can stand boldly and confidently in the face of our adversary, the devil, and know his lies have no power of over us. We are able to exercise our God-given authority best when we truly understand what our covenant rights are as co-heirs with Christ who have received the gift of salvation.

Many times the life of a born-again believer doesn’t reflect the “life and life more abundant” that Jesus came to give us as He says in John10:10. We see Christians in the same sickness, disease, divorce, addictions, oppression, etc. that the world is in, and that’s NOT the kind of abundant life we received in Christ. There’s no condemnation for any of us and we are all allowing Christ to possess our lives more and more.

This series is shout out to believers to know their God-given rights in Christ so they learn to walk in them and not allow the enemy to steal from them any longer. Living the abundant life Jesus promised us is lived by faith in the promises He has given us and knowing it is our right to them. If we don’t believe we have the right to the promises (because the enemy has deceived us, because our own flesh condemns us, etc.) then we won’t receive them.

John 8:36 says,”Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

[Jhn 10:10 ESV] 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

“Staying Connected With the Head” (Pt 4 of Christ the Power of God and the Wisdom of God) 1-24-16

All power and wisdom flows to us through the head, Jesus Christ.

This is part 4 of a series revealing that it’s when believers take their place IN CHRIST, making Jesus their Lord on a daily basis and submitting to Him as the head, that our prayers are powerful and effective. The teacher uses the story of David and Goliath (a picture of Christ defeating the enemy on our behalf) to encourage believers to pray out of the position of victory we already have in Christ.

Hebrews 10:23 tells us to hold onto our confession…speaking of our confession of who we say Jesus is!

Powerful and effective prayers like James 5:16 talks about come from Christ himself and our living in Him and taking our place in Him and praying out of the position He has given us within Himself as the body of Christ. Prayer is not a difficult, toilsome, religious activity, it is simply about presenting yourself before God often and receiving Him.

Hebrews 4:16 says: Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

As we come before God’s throne of grace, we allow His Spirit to empty us of everything not of Him so that we can receive a fresh infilling of His presence and His divine nature. We are called to live our lives in coming before God’s throne of grace often and taking our place in Christ (Eph 2:4-6) so that Christ (who is God’s power and wisdom) is revealed through us. As we take our place in Christ, we take our place in the power and wisdom of God.

About this video:

Hebrews 4:16 says: Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

In Matthew 11:28, Jesus says: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

God is love (1 John 4:8) and love gives and desires that we would RECEIVE.

God’s love for us is unconditional and he desires for us to come boldly before him to receive through his merciful and gracious nature. A close study of the original text of “draw near” reveals God wants us to come extremely close to him.

Religion and sin-consciousness tries to keep us feeling too ashamed or not good enough to come before God, but the truth is that God desires for you to come to him and to receive His grace and His mercy in your time of need.

The purpose behind this message and series is to lead believers into the glory-filled life that reflects the promises of God being fulfilled in our lives. 2 Cor 1:20 tells us that every promise is yes and Amen IN CHRIST, so we know it is through Christ and His finished work on the cross (grace) that we receive all that is prepared for us. As we learn to live more and more surrendered to the Holy Spirit living within us, He causes us to take our place IN Christ who is the fullness of grace and truth and fills everything in every way (John 1:16, Eph 1:23).

About this video:
The purpose behind this message and series is it lead believers into the glory-filled life that has already been prepared for us to receive and live in through Christ on this earth. “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. Every promise we read of in the word — whether for health, wealth, joy, peace, freedom, etc. — is already ours in Christ, but situations can arise that look contrary to what the Word says is ours. The teacher discusses through personal testimony and example in the bible how a believer is to respond and receive the promises by exercising faith in that which was promised and through dying to self that tries to get in the way.

About this video:
This teaching equips believers with knowledge about the enemy’s tactic to create strongholds within us that are in opposition to the word of God . A negative stronghold is a fortress built on lies that hold us back from walking in the fullness of what God has intended for our life.

The only positive strong hold is the name of the Lord – Jesus Christ!
[Mic 4:8 NKJV] 8 And you, O tower of the flock, The stronghold of the daughter of Zion, To you shall it come, Even the former dominion shall come, The kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.”
[Proverbs 18:10 ESV] – The name of The Lord is a strong tower (stronghold) the righteous man runs into it and is safe.
A stronghold is a CONTINUED, same, dominant belief of something in a particular area.

A stronghold is like a castle, or a well-fortified city – it has a strong foundation and defense system in place.

When you are built up continually in the Word, it becomes like a tree within you bearing much good fruit. You eat of its fruit and with an abundance of supply, you even feed others from the tree of life within you. BUT, the enemy also uses lies to create negative strongholds within us and these are what holds a person back from walking in the fullness of what God has intended for their life.

A negative stronghold is a continued, same, dominant belief of something in opposition to the truth of the Word of God in a particular area; continually believing a lie and reinforcing it within you.

A negative stronghold within you becomes like a protected place in your mind and soul that has become so built up with lies that it acts like a fortified city with a military group who will defend those lies because you think they are protecting you. They are often lies that have been birthed as a defense mechanism to avoid being hurt again, failing again, etc.

[2Co 10:3-5 NKJV] 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
This teaching equips you with knowledge of the enemy’s schemes so that you are be prepared to stand in victory BEFORE those lies ever come!

About this video:
We’ve been raised with Christ! Romans 6:4, Ephesians 2:6, Col 3:1
Many Christians identify themselves as having received Jesus in their heart…even at the early age of 3 years old, we are taught that Jesus lives in our heart. While this is an important and powerful truth, the other half of that truth is that we are also alive in Him like living cells in HIS BODY.

When we grab hold of Jesus as the head, and that we are one with Him and joined to His body, we see that just as He has been resurrected, so have we. Resurrected from the “dead man walking” system of the curse that Satan brought in when he deceived Adam and Even in the garden. Until Jesus died, man was left to the curse of only having his natural 5 senses to lead him in life…and they always lead to death – to confusion, fear, worry, anxiety, sickness…man couldn’t hear from God anymore or walk in His presence every day like Adam and Eve could in the beginning. Only the king, the priest and the prophet could hear from God.

BUT, Jesus came to give us LIFE and to give it to us more abundantly! John 10:10 and this comes to us by His Holy Spirit and the freedom to be continually filled with His presence eery day!! We are meant to live a resurrected life on this earth as well, even before the final returning and resurrection.

When we see that not only does Jesus live in us, but we are also ALIVE IN HIM, we freely the position we’ve been given on this earth IN CHRIST.

Where Christ sits, we sit in Him. What belongs to Him, also belongs to us. He is the head, and we are a part of his body!!
[Col 3:1-3, 15-16 NIV] 1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God…15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom…

About this video:
The purpose behind this message and series is to very practically teach about how we live by the Spirit and exercise authority over the nature of the flesh. You are not obligated to your dirt and its thoughts and emotions. Just because the flesh speaks and wants to share its thoughts and emotions doesn’t mean you have to entertain it by listening. As a born again spirit, YOU are alive in Christ and one with him and have authority over the dirt you possess on this earth. YOU are a spirit. You have a soul, and you possess a body. That means you own that dirt and have authority over it.

Romans 8:12-14 says: Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation–but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

Living a life FILLED by the spirit starts by living a life LED by the Spirit and not by the flesh. And when we are led by the Spirit, we no longer have obligation to entertain the thoughts and emotions of the flesh. Instead, we tell our dirt what it will think, how it will feel and what it will produce.

The purpose behind this message and series is to very practically teach about the infilling of the Holy Spirit.

About this video:
This teaching: “Faith in the Name of Jesus” refreshes us in what faith is and in whom we are called to place our faith – Jesus! When we live by faith (pistis: active, continual reliance on Jesus for salvation), we experience freedom and fulfillment of life that can only come to us through Jesus Christ alone. Miracle power is released when we put our faith in the name of Jesus:

[Act 3:16 NIV] 16 By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him, as you can all see.

About this video:
The purpose behind this message and series is to lead God’s people into intimate fellowship with Him where we are able to freely receive all He has already given to us through Christ so that we can rule and reign on this earth as He has intended for us from the beginning. Romans 5:17says: For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ! This teaching begins with a summary of parts 1 and 2 in this series on “Receiving the Gift of Righteousness” and then continues on bringing clarity to what righteousness is and giving a clear visual of righteousness being the very nature of God.
God doesn’t want us sick, poor, or beaten down in life by the enemy. His Word is full of promises that are already ours in Christ as 2 Cor 1:20tells us: For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.

(9-20-15) Receiving the Gift of Righteousness part 2 – God is Love & God is Faithful 

A scripture sheet entitled “God is love & God is faithful” that accompanied this teaching is available for you to print on the “Scripture Sheets for Personal Prayer & Meditation” tab here at prayerschoolcommunity.com

About this video: This teaching begins with a summary of part 1 in this series on “Receiving the Gift of Righteousness” and helps believers to know and identify God’s true nature and character. God is love and God is faithful. We are made righteous because of HIS goodness towards us despite our corrupted sinful nature. It emphasizes the importance of knowing and relying on the love God has for you. It is God Himself who empowers us, makes us righteous, and causes our prayers to be powerful and effective. When we know and understand God’s unconditional love for us, we are able to rule and reign on this earth over sickness, poverty, oppression, etc. and over the enemy himself with complete confidence. It is God-love working through us that causes our prayers to be powerful and effective, because it is God-love who makes us righteous through Jesus Christ.

(9-20-15) Praying in Tongues – Putting Sound to Surrender

About this video: This is a short clip from a teaching to help bring freedom and clarity about receiving the infilling and baptism of the Holy Spirit that comes with the evidence of speaking in tongues. Acts 2:4 tells us this prayer language is given to us as we are filled with the Holy Spirit: “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” It is not meant as something for us to work in making happen, but instead as we surrender, the Spirit fills every place within us that we have given to Him and with that infilling comes the evidence of speaking in tongues. This is the Holy Spirit praying on our behalf as Romans 8:26 talks about. The simple phrase God gave the teacher to share with new believers is that praying in tongues is “putting sound to surrender.” As we surrender to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to give us utterance, He prays God’s most perfect will into our lives and the situations we are praying about.

Here are more scriptures about the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues for you to meditate on and receive in your personal prayer time:

[1Co 14:14-15 NIV] 14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. 15 So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my understanding.

[Luk 12:12 NIV] 12 for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.

[Jhn 3:34 NIV] 34 For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit.

[Jhn 14:26 NIV] 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

[Act 4:31 NIV] 31 After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.

[Act 10:38 NIV] 38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.

[2Co 3:17 NIV] 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

[Gal 1:11 NIV] 11 I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not of human origin.
