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…

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…

Calling You Deeper?

Today, while listening to youtube worship and preaching, the Lord impressed on me an old word that’s a now word as well. Ezekiel 47 – The River The measuring rod of God. Go deeper. Pursue Him. If He doesn’t knock you off your feet sometimes you have to lay down. Going deeper is what this season is about. I may have been touched in Toronto, I may have been touched in Pensecola, I may have been touched at Light the…

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…

Prophetic Words for Such a Time as This

2019 has started with an explosion of Holy Spirit power. Year of Thunder – At the end of December leading into 2019 my wife and I and two other couple went to seek the Lord for the coming year. I had a spiritual experience where I was lifted up to a place in the Spirit. It seemed in that moment all of creation was paused waiting to hear something. It was like everyone was straining to hear what would come. Then…

Holy Spirit Encounters!

Wow, service at Trinity Vineyard yesterday(4-29-18) was so good. The presence of God was thick. We experienced the fire of God’s Glory. There was fire on the altar. Fuego! Multiple people were dramatically and powerfully touched by God. People were weeping, laughing, sitting in silence, falling to floor, shaking under the power of God, seeing visions, hearing revelations and that’s just some of what was happening. Some people told me they were still feeling the fire and shaking well after…

Sunday Afternoon – At The Shack

This past Sunday afternoon a friend at church offered to take anyone who wanted or could go to the movie “The Shack”. I had heard there was some controversy about the book so I was little hesitant to at first to go but several folks showed interest in going. So we loaded up the church bus and took 11 folks to see the movie. I enjoyed the movie and felt it was a very moving story of inner healing. I…

Sermon Series Heaven is For Real

Beginning April 27th we will start a new sermon series, “Heaven is for Real“. Heaven Is for Real is the true story of a four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who experienced heaven during emergency surgery. He talked about looking down to see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn’t know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear. In heaven, Colton met his miscarried sister whom no one…

Our Father

In Matthew 6 when Jesus is asked by his disciples, Lord teach us to pray. He begins with a very imortant peice of information, “Our Father“. These simple words create a very powerful image of our real identity and postion, as believers, with the Lord God of Israel. This was brought home to me one Sunday in church. I was worshipping and playing a djembe along with the worship team. Then I felt a little hand on my right forearm.…
