Peace Maker

(Simon Purvis) – “Jesus Christ as mediator is a peacemaker.  We were enemies against God so Jesus came to reconcile us back to the Father.  Salvation is about coming to peace with God.  Peacemaking is reconciliation.”  (SIMON  PURVIS is speaking at KINGDOM CONGRESS 2018  March 7-9. Grace International Willis,TX  936-856-2455)

No Business as Usual

Even while in the middle of the wilderness, Israel was on the verge of a new era. Yet, there weren’t any people walking around or gathering groups under a tree to listen to them preach about the new era that was being ushered in and that they should have hope and that they should give themselves wholeheartedly to it and, most certainly, no one had even announced a Countdown to Canaan Conference. Even without the thing being announced in bright lights, the new season was moving in upon them just the same. One factor we must always be aware of that can spawn disillusionment is when the proclaimers of new eras leave us with the assumption that it is going to be a “magic carpet ride”. We will not be able to simply go on about “business as usual” but must look for ways to adjust to what is coming and adjust and make preparations for what we are hoping will be.

Settle For Nothing Less

As the people of God assemble today, may they settle for nothing less than the extraordinary of Heaven in their midst. May they not look to those things known only by religious sentiment. May they lift up their heads and look to where there is transforming power and radical answers that change individuals and grip them with an insatiable vision for the Kingdom of Heaven in the earth.  “Manifest your kingdom realm, and cause your every purpose to be fulfilled on earth, just as it is fulfilled in heaven.” (Matt.6:10, TPT)  (Kingdom Congress Mar.7-9, 2018 Theme: “From Heaven to Earth”)

Let Not Your Heart be Troubled

(Kathy) —The Bible doesn’t say “Let your heart be troubled only occasionally”. It says, “Let not your heart be troubled.” It’s not an option.   “Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]” (Jn.14:27, AMPC)  (KATHY will be speaking at KINGDOM CONGRESS 2018 Mar.7-9  Grace International [936-856-2455] just north of Houston.)

Embracing a New Era

The coming of a new year finds many people hoping for a new era, a new season. Many have hopes and dreams that a new season will hold something fresh and fulfilling. There is a God-something in us that urges us to reach beyond what we have experienced and strive for more than we have known. We so desire to eagerly respond to the “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” invitation of Jer.33:3. We want to see and experience the “never seen” and “never known” which is beyond our own capacity so that we may know resolve and victories and fulfillment that have, heretofore, been beyond our reach.

Under Authority

(Sam Brassfield) — David was under authority; therefore, he had authority. If we are not under authority, we have no authority. All authority outside of the Triune Godhead is delegated authority. David had been given authority by his earthly father Jesse to tend his father’s sheep. David used that authority to slay the enemies that came to devour his father’s flocks. He just used this same premise of authority in regards to his heavenly Father. David knew that when he faced the giant who was in defiance of his heavenly father, that he would be given the power of God to back up the authority he had been given to protect God’s flock called Israel.  (SAM BRASSFIELD will be speaking at KINGDOM CONGRESS 2018 March 7-9.

Not Curbside Pickup

It’s going to take loving the Truth (which is a Person—THE Person) to see great and mighty things for which an earth is groaning (Romans 8:17-19). It’s going to take some calling on that Person which requires relationship, not curbside pickup. And relationship takes time, time out of your day. This does not mean you have to set aside hours and hours every day. That is not a bad thing if that’s where you are currently, or a season you are headed into. Other than that, a relationship is all day everyday.   (Fifth excerpt from Melissa Gabler’s article “Call on Him”.) Melissa is speaking and leading worship at Kingdom Congress 2018 – March 7-9.
