You Have Authority Over Demons Today

You Have Authority Over Demons Today Jesus had authority over demons. Wherever Jesus went, crowds gathered. Demoniacs were often healed in those crowds. In some cases, the demons became disruptive (see Mark 3:10–11 and Luke 4:41; see also Acts 8:7, where demons shrieked in Philip’s large meetings as they were driven out of people). Most of the time, Jesus commanded the unclean spirits not to reveal His identity: “When evening came, after the sun had set, they began bringing to him all who…

Impartation – The Fire of God

To understand impartation, we need to understand anointing, which means “to smear on.”  When a prophet or priest poured, rubbed, or smeared oil over the head of someone, it was referred to as anointing that person. In the New Testament, the anointing of the Holy Spirit can be passed through the laying on of hands or when testimony is shared about receiving an impartation. The anointing abides within us: “But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in…

The Church

The Church It is like a mustard seed which, when it is sown on the ground, is smaller than all the seeds on earth; but when it is sown, it grows up and becomes greater than all the herbs, and shoots out large branches, so that the birds of the air may nest under its shade. Mark 4:31-32 MKJV  Throughout the last two millennia, all the powers of hell have been unable to eliminate the gospel or the church. It…

Power of Praying in Tongues

The Power of Praying in Tongues is something we don’t always take seriously nowadays. There is power in praying in tongues. It’s a gift of the Spirit of God for all believers. I recently started a sermon series on Prayer. I felt the Lord wanted me to remind myself and others we have been called to be prayer warriors. We need to pick up the sword of the Spirit and P.U.S.H. pray until something happens. I saw this teaching by…

Benny Hinn’s Shocking Rejection Of The Prosperity Gospel

Benny Hinn’s Shocking Rejection Of The Prosperity Gospel by Vince Miller I was blown away when I watched this video “confession” that has gone viral. I had to watch it more than a few times. What caught my attention was not Benny Hinn’s renouncement of prosperity teaching and his concerns about how this preaching was spiritually misguided. Try to ignore the shock this renouncement given this message has been a cornerstone of his ministry. What especially caught my attention was this…

In the Groove

Today after prayer I had a burst of revelations. I wanted to share one. Vinyl records are making a come back so more people may be able to relate to this. I was seeing life represented before me as a series of LP Albums and 45 records. We often think this music we are hearing/living is the only song we will ever play. But the Lord has us all in different seasons. For some he has us going along like…

40 Days of Prayer and Fasting

40 DAYS OF PRAYER & FASTING – AN INVITATION TO OUR CHURCHES Many months ago, Phil sensed the invitation from God, “Ask Me,” in relation to the Vineyard Movement across the country – and to invite us all to do the same. Phil felt that Jeremiah 6:16a was highlighted to him by the Holy Spirit for this asking, discerning season in the Vineyard, and sits at the center of this call to prayer and fasting: This is what the Lord says:…

Overcoming Obstacles for Healing

The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.     1 John 3:8 In John 10:10 Jesus said, “the enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy; I have come that you may have life and have it to the full” Let’s clear away some of the rubble or arguments against healing today. There are teachings and just assumptions that stand in the way of healing that we will refute. Paul’s Thorn in the Flesh – Often instead…

Thoughts On Spiritual Warfare

I recently sent out the prophetic word by Matt Sorger, “A Time of Accelerated Breakthrough and a Season of Suddenlies“. While yes, this is true, this also seems like a time of warfare and distraction.  I have noticed and have heard from others that the warfare level has recently increased. In general, the enemy would not be wasting so much of his time on anyone who is not a threat. I recommend not focusing on or spending much time praying against warfare. We…
