Restoration

“I will restore or replace for you” says the Lord, “the years that the locust has eaten… the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, My great army which I sent among you. And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord, your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame. And you shall know, understand, and realize that I am in the midst of Israel and that I the Lord am your God and there is none else. My people shall never be put to shame.” (Joel 2:25-27)

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

Although the past is irreversible and overwhelming at times… God is the restorer of broken dreams and shattered lives! He has declared a New Day available for all of humanity! God has laid a foundation of hope in Christ – He is saying we can be a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17)… and our old ways can be in the past! There is a new beginning waiting for us, filled with new chances, new opportunities and new expectations (Isa. 43:18-21). God will wipe away our rotten past and restore that which was lost, stolen or destroyed by sin, brokenness or the devil.

Restoration begins by Believing!

As the Savior of mankind, the Lord Jesus Christ has done all to rescue us from the things that diminish or destroy us. If we can but believe – hope opens the door! There is a restoration coming into our spirits, minds, bodies, relationships, and other aspects of our humanity. Believers can be delivered from oppression (Acts 10:38) and rest in the safety that effects spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being (Mt. 11:28-30).

Come, you weary, broken and lost and find a place of safety in His loving care for you.

Hope is a Destination!

Run into the arms of your Father in the Spirit! There you will have plenty and be complete, satisfied and whole. He wants you to know the truth and the freedom of walking in His Presence! It is His joy to reveal His heart toward you! He is a Father… like no other. He will not allow His people to be orphans or feel ashamed anymore. This is a profound truth that no one else can claim.

Let Him speak into your heart today… “I the Lord am your God and there is no one else!”

Receive Your Inheritance

“In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will.” (Eph. 1:11)

Many Christians have bought into the idea that the blessings of God – our inheritance – will not be given to us until we get to heaven. Do we really have to wait that long?

Well  – Here is the Good News…

It’s NOW! Your blessing, your inheritance is wrapped up in your relationship with Jesus Christ. Let me show you how you can receive it today. If you are facing challenges, lack in any area, addictions, fears, sickness, low finances, broken relationships, then hang on. Christ has brought you into the “Blessed Place” and made you a co-heir with Him (Rom. 8:17)… protection, deliverance, restoration, and provision. You got a taste of it when you were born again and received the Holy Spirit, but the more the eyes of your heart are enlightened, the more you begin to understand all that God has for you. We’re talking about all of the blessings you are entitled to simply because you have relationship with Christ and an inheritance in God!

Taste and See:

When you begin to walk with Christ, your belief grows and you start tasting more and more of the goodness of God and the richness of His blessings (Ps. 23:6 & 34:8). The error some make is in thinking that the more you walk with God, the more you experience the blessings He has for you. But that is the myth of religion, not the reality in Christ (Eph. 1:3-10). You have become complete in Him, from the moment you trusted Him with your future. The more you believe the blessings are yours through Christ, the more you will experience them. It’s like “believing” is the way to get your blessings out of storage. Belief or “faith” is the “key to the storehouse” (Heb. 11:1 & 11:6). Praise God!

Galatians 3:9 says, “So all who put their faith in Christ share the same blessing Abraham received because of his faith.”

And what kind of blessing did Abraham receive? For starters, he was fruitful. Not just with children but with livestock, cattle, money, and land. Everywhere he went he prospered. Read the book of Genesis for yourself and you’ll see. If you have the same faith as Abraham, the blessings of Abraham will start working their way into your life. I encourage you to quit thinking you will not receive it until you get to heaven.

Its So Simple?

An inheritance is released when a person dies… Jesus died. He came to die, so that we could live in the abundant provision of His life (Jn. 10:10). That’s when you were given access to your inheritance… when you embraced His will for your life. The only reason you don’t walk in it fully is because you haven’t fully believed that it’s yours – right now for you to receive. But, you don’t have to wait till you get to heaven to possess it!

Pray this prayer based on Ephesians 1:17-20:

“Father, I am asking that You give me a spirit of wisdom and revelation so that I can know You better. I pray also that I will have greater understanding and belief in my heart. This belief will help me to know the hope that is mine in receiving the blessings that You have for me right now. Show me the inheritance that is wait for me to possess. Please, open my eyes and my heart so I can fully comprehend how rich and amazing the blessings are that You have purchased for me. Things You have promised, but I have yet to receive; simply because I haven’t believed. I declare right now that I choose to believe and receive the inheritance that You have for me. In Jesus Name.”

Now, receive your inheritance!

When God Says “Go!”

What do you say when God says, “No!”?

The selfish person looks at the situation and figures out how they can still get it done. The cautious person sees it as an excuse to do nothing. The controlling person manipulates others to do what they have been given no approval for. The critical person finds fault with God’s logic and complains the whole time. The negative person promotes a bad attitude and discourages others from even considering the risk. The pleasure-seeking person will only be interested if they get something out of it. They all get what they want, but at what cost… and will it satisfy?

The Deception of Getting What We Want:

In the end what we sow will produce it’s fruit, it’s reward and it’s harvest. The Bible says, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life” (Gal. 6:7-8). 

“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Therefore Go…” (Mt. 28:18-19)

When everything is aligned according to the will of God, Jesus says,”GO!”.
That’s when miracles happen, a hopeless alcoholic is set free, a doubter begins to see the error of their ways and a broken dream suddenly becomes a reality. It’s when prayers get answered… and it happens more than you think!

When Jesus said, “GO!”… it was because of authority.

When Jesus says, “Go!” it is because of knowledge and awareness of all that pertains to every sphere of reality. We see through a glass darkly, but His view is eternal and complete. The warning is clear… don’t be deceived into thinking you can mock God or go around the authority of Jesus. You might get what you want, but it will be a harvest of corruption and it may even lead others into darkness. 

Remember these 4 Principles of Prayer:
1. God’s answers require patience.
2. God’s timing is perfect.
3. God’s heart is moved by faith, not need alone.
4. God’s delays are not God’s denials.

Sometimes God says, “No!”. Sometimes He says, “Grow!”  But there are other times… When God says; “Go!”

Press On In!

If indeed, we are “In Christ”…  

It is like being ushered into a multi-level home that we are free to explore. It has many fascinating and interesting rooms, many hidden passages, and exciting possibilities to experience. We, who have become the heirs of salvation are invited to enter into all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge… In Christ. Not just stand in the doorway of Eternity!

Move In! 

Let us move beyond the entrance of our Spiritual Houses in Christ. We want to move into the “unsearchable riches of Christ”. Pressing on in, like we own the place… after all it is our inheritance. We have crossed the Red Sea into a land of promise. Should we not go forward and take possession; the believer’s enjoyment on Earth… Freedom! Manna is good, but there is a Promise Land “flowing with milk and honey” yet to be possessed. Giants? Yes! Enemies? Yes! But faith in God and trust in His promises, will secure us our victory in the battles we face. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we must move into our living quarters.

Don’t Settle for Observation:

Looking into the Promises of God is not the same as possessing spiritual victory. We must not allow our hearts to be filled with unbelief; but by faith, we must move beyond your comfort zone into new unclaimed spiritual territory God has destined for us! We will experience answers to prayer and glorify the Father. We will see the fruit of being the faith filled disciples of Christ and experience supernatural joy, “unspeakable and full of glory!”

The Mystery is Revealed:

In Ephesians one, we see that a Mystery has been revealed. We have been chosen “In Christ”, we are the redeemed “In Christ”, we have an inheritance “In Christ” and we have been sealed “In Christ”. Its time that we walk In Christ and experience the very life of Christ. If we are complete In Him and hidden In Him, then we should have no excuses for a life apart from Him. There is nothing that can be added to us when we are In Christ, for In Christ dwells all of the fullness of the Godhead, bodily. Pressing in means laying hold of all that Christ has purchased for us. Its territory that if we never possess, we will never know its promise nor hand it off to those who follow our example.
