(Larry Burden) — Bitter roots are defined as sinful reactions to painful events. The events, themselves, do not cause the root. The reaction to the events is at the core of the bitter root. Bitter roots express themselves as condemning judgments of people or the refusal or inability to forgive those who have hurt us. They manifest as names or careless words that we have either thought about, called others, or said about the ones who have hurt us. They are powerful toxic pollutants that damage and defile our souls and others around us as well. In response to hurts, wounds, or painful events, we express condemning judgments. We may try to push down the hurts, rationalize them, blow them off, or sim- ply just pass them off as no big deal. But they are big deals! Over time these seeds of bitterness will build a root system and, if left unchecked, become the driving force of our personality, manifesting such things as: Cynicism, Apathy, Negativity and more.

When Peter was in prison (Acts 12:7) he had been presented with a great opportunity to be introduced to the Book-of-Acts-norm. In reading that awesome book’s account of the early church, we cannot help but observe that God’s people had been ushered into a new era, an era in which they could fully expect to function in ways and means they had never seen the like of. There are things, events and supply in Heaven that Father wants to get into the earth. But they are extraordinary by our standards and He is desiring cooperation from us “earthen vessels that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” (2Cor.4:7) (Sixth excerpt from Marty’s article “Embracing a New Era”; Marty will be ministering prophetically at KINGDOM CONGRESS 2018 Mar.7-9.

KINGDOM CONGRESS 2018 INFORMATION
(Sam Brassfield) We have an emerging generation that has the right DNA, or what I call Divine Nature Anointing, waiting in the wings, but not for long. They are so properly wired for this next great spiritual awakening in the earth. From what I have experienced visiting the many local churches and attending places, these youth are involved in praise and worship. I have absolutely no doubt that they are the next Davidic generation arising in the earth. They are the twenty-first century spiritual type of Obed-Edom and family who will leave the farm so to speak, and move to Zion the city of David. They will become the next attendants in the newly rebuilt spiritual Tabernacle of David. (SAM BRASSFIELD will be speaking and imparting at KINGDOM CONGRESS 2018 March 7-9. Information: 936-856-2455)
Consider the nation of Israel when they were murmuring about the food situation in the wilderness in Exodus Chapter 16. That whole scenario was an opportunity for every person involved to stop, look and listen to what was transpiring and conclude that these were not just a series of events that were simply to be written down in a history book somewhere. When they woke up that first morning of the manna event they discovered something so extraordinary that they didn’t know what to call it. So, they ended up calling it “what is it?” (v.15). They, however, did not adjust to the new era and did not change their thinking and old habits. They continued trying to operate by old mindsets, did not heed the instructions of Moses and ended up with a smelly, undesirable mess (v.20). A new era cannot be new and cannot be the vehicle carrying us to new results if we intend operating in the mindsets of the old era. The never-before-experienced extraordinary of the new season turned to waste and to something that was untenable because the Israelites refused to operate by the tenets of the new (v.19). A new threshold serves little or no purpose if we have no intention of operating in the new with the respective new mindset. New eras are themselves announcements of new norms.

(Melissa Gabler) — Even though the sky is clearing there may be a storm or two that pops up as we head into the God ordained days ahead. No worries though, the storms have to “be still” and bow to the intention of God. In prayer the other night I heard this after it came out of my mouth, “Your Kingdom is over this nation and you are releasing another increment upon us.” What if we are that increment?! What if we are the stealth measures He is putting in place to release a deeper increment of His Kingdom on this earth? Me thinks we are!

DETAILED INFORMATION FOR KINGDOM CONGRESS 2018
When a person or a nation received a breakthrough, when they began a new era, God was trying to tell them that they did not have to operate at the previous level. He was, through His Word and through their experiences, attempting to get across to them that they had come to a new norm. When we come to a new norm (or simply desire to) we would do well to realize that we must think differently and put effort into functioning differently.
