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…

Prophetic Word: Your Season of Promotion and Repayment is Here

September is going to be an awesome time during the Days of Awe. This is a month in which God speaks more clearly to us about the coming year and about our destiny. Each year, during the time of Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement), God examines our lives for the purpose of promotion. This year it is going to be a special time of promotion! Rosh Hashanah starts at sundown on September 9 and…

Prophetic Word: God is Revealing Mysteries to Give You Peace

August is going to be a special month, as long-awaited revelation from Heaven will start flowing freely. For many people, there has been a drought in the spiritual realm for a number of months—even years. This is now going to break, and God is going to open the heavens with dreams, visions, prophetic writings, strategies, art, songs and more. All types of creative revelation will start flowing to you. This will start in August and will continue over the next few months. Mysteries revealed…

Keys To Victory

    At the small group last week, we had a great time of prayer. We lifted up one another’s burdens and stood with each other in our struggles. All the while I was seeing the need to share some keys from recent sermons and things the Lord is showing me and others. These keys, are keys to victory. We have been called to be more than conquerors in Christ. Key #1 – Prayer – like Jehosaphat when you feel surrounded and outnumbered by the enemy PRAY. When…

Nehemiah – Time to Rebuild

Sunday I taught the story of Nehemiah. We experienced the manifest presence of God. The presence of sweet and weighty. Ministry time was impactful. God touched those who came forward. Some he was filling with his love and presence some he was touching places in their heart. We love the presence. Come Holy Spirit. Press in and ask for More! Nehemiah was a man committed to his job and suddenly when he heard the news of the destruction of Jerusalem…

Guns, Marijuana, No High Like the Most High

There is no high like the Most High. I am talking about the holy inebriation we receive when we have an encounter with the Most High God. When I was young I enjoyed getting high. I would find opportunity with friends to get high. Later when I was older I would get drunk and I would find ways to drink with friends. I enjoyed the high. But there is no high like the Most High. You can not over dose…

Glory Cloud

Yesterday was another great day. The manifest presence of the Lord continues come among us. Every week has been different yet powerful. Yesterday was Pentecost and we had another powerful visitation. As we finished worship I asked if any had received a word during worship to share with the fellowship. We had several folks share words of encouragement for the fellowship. Words about favor, entering into the promised land, provision, healing. As we continued to pray into the words and share…

Power and Authority

Power and Authority Exodus 24 • The 70 elders of Israel were at the base of the same mountain that Moses had ascended to meet with God. • In essence, they were seeing the river flowing out from the throne of God. • They saw God. Then, just a few days later, they helped build a golden calf. • They had a power encounter with God himself, yet they still built a golden calf with that memory still fresh in their head.…

God Don't Make No Junk

Thought I would share one of my devotionals this am:   I’ve seen a bumper sticker on several cars that makes me chuckle every time. It simply says, “God don’t make no junk!” (Ironically, it seems like every time I see this bumper sticker, it’s always on an old clunker.) But it’s true: when you’re in Christ, God don’t make no junk! You are the masterpiece of God, created for the Master’s purpose. The reason it’s important for you to believe…
