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…

The Yoke of Jesus

In Jesus’ day, a rabbi’s teaching was called a yoke. The teaching-yoke of the religious leaders was an endless list of laws, rules, traditions, and expectations that no one could live up to! But Jesus offered to free the people from this deadly yoke of legalism. Jesus opened his heart to anyone who would listen and offered his life-giving yoke of love: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle…

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…

Praying for Kanye

A couple weeks ago I felt the Lord telling me to pray for Kanye West and Justin Beiber to fulfill their God giving destinies. I began to pray for hem with my morning prayers. This past weekend we had a men’s retreat. Then on Sunday Kanye was at Lakewood church. Then on Monday, of this week I had a dream. In the dream I was in a large old house reminded me like a Victorian-style home but one wing or…

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…

Exorcism: Your Authority In Christ

– Enjoy this great article on Kingdom Authority – In the spiritual realm, no issue is more important than authority. Who has the right to rule? Two sovereigns cannot rule in the same sphere at the same time. In the creation account, God had given that right to those who were created in His image. “Let us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds…

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:…
