Love one another as Jesus has loved us.

Creative Hands

If you are to fulfill your Kingdom destiny, anything that can cause you to stumble and fail has to be eliminated. Removing heart issues that…

Silence Papa’s voice.

Nullify Papa’s glory in your life.

Weaken your ability to defend yourself against satan’s destructive schemes.

Damage your witness as a disciple of Christ.

Sadly, instead of allowing Papa to remove unrighteous behaviors and paradigms, many make contingency plans.

“If I am emotionally stronger, my heart will heal, and the pain will vanish.

And if that does not work, I will bury the pain so deep. That it is erased from my memory.

And if that does not work, I will numb it with alcohol, drugs, food, sex, shopping. Whatever it takes.

And if that does not work, I will be more rational and logical. Deadening my emotions so pain can no longer wrap its barbed arms around me.”

Sadly, these “if that does not work” strategies slowly nail the lids shut on their coffins. Slowly dying. They join the multitude that has lamented, “If only I had never been born!”

Thankfully, the Great Physician, Jesus is on call and will do whatever is necessary to heal you. His medicine may leave a bitter taste in you mouth, but it is for your own good.

I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. 
Job 42:5 New Living Translation

Less Is More

All have an innate hunger for the divine— the supernatural. For Moses this hunger was so intense that a life without God’s glory was not a life worth living.

One day Moses said to the Lord, “You have been telling me.”

‘Take these people up to the Promised Land.’

“But You haven’t told me whom You will send with me. You have told me.”

‘I know you by name, and I look favorably on you.’

“If it is true that you look favorably on me. Let me know Your ways. So I may understand You more fully and continue to enjoy Your favor.”

The Lord replied, “I will personally go with you Moses, and I will give you rest. Everything will be fine for you.”

Then Moses said, “If You don’t personally go with us, don’t make us leave this place. How will anyone know that You look favorably on me and on Your people? If You don’t go with us? For Your presence among us sets Your people and me apart from all other people on the earth.”

The Lord replied to Moses, “I will indeed do what you have asked. For I look favorably on you, and I know you by name.”

Moses responded, “Then show me your glorious presence.” Exodus 33:12-18 

So it is today for a growing number of Christians. Weary of the Gospel devoid of the supernatural— God’s glory. They are hungrily seeking His glory.

Why is God’s glory absent in many American churches?

Man’s wisdom, not the Lord’s is honored.

Humanistic philosophies are firmly entrenched in the American version of Christ’s Gospel. These philosophies extol man’s wisdom and encourage personal willpower and introspection.

YOU have the ability to reach your full potential— self-actualization. Focusing on the improvement of self should be the dominating force in your life.

The self-actualized YOU is independent, autonomous and resistant to societal pressures. Possessing the ability to transcend the adversities of life.

Humanistic philosophies believe all knowledge needed for transformation is available to YOU.

Humanism refuses to acknowledge there is a transcendent, sovereign God who has declared.

“My thoughts are not your thoughts. Nor are your ways My ways. For as the heavens are higher than the earth. So are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9

God’s wisdom does not belong to this world or to the rulers of this world. Who are in power today and gone tomorrow. It is a wisdom that has been hidden. Which God had planned for our glory before the world began.

Not one of the rulers of this world has known it. If they had, they wouldn’t have crucified the Lord of glory. But as Scripture says. No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for those who love Him. 1 Corinthians 2:6-9 

God violates or transcends natural laws so He and His Kingdom are glorified. In doing so all mankind shall see— behold and understand and at last acknowledge the salvation of God. The deliverance from eternal death decreed by God. Luke 3:6 

Perhaps the absence of divine supernatural power in the lives of many Christians today is because their hearts have posted a “No Trespassing” sign. Refusing to believe whatever has been born of God conquers the world.

This is the victory that has conquered the world— our faith. And who is the one who conquers the world? The one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. 1 John 5:4-5 

By believing in Him you will have life by the power of His name. John 20:31  Power that guarantees whoever is a believer in Christ is a new creation. The old way of living has disappeared. A new way of living has come into existence 2 Corinthians 5:17 — becoming Christ-like.

Disciples of Christ unashamedly admit, “I have not yet reached my goal, and I am not perfect. But Christ has taken hold of me. So I keep on running and struggling to take hold of the prize.

My friends, I don’t feel that I have already arrived. But I forget what is behind, and I struggle for what is ahead. I run toward the goal. So that I can win the prize of being called to heaven. This is the prize that God offers because of what Christ Jesus has done.

All of us who are mature should think in this same way. And if any of you think differently, God will make it clear to you. But we must keep going in the direction that we are now headed.” Philippians 3:12-16 

By not trusting God’s wisdom. Christ’s Gospel has been stripped of His supernatural power. Which is the prerequisite for both personal and cultural transformation.

Until the Church and Christians return to the literal interpretation of Scripture. Acknowledge that the earth and the supernatural realm are not two separate, alien worlds. But different expressions of the Lord’s spiritual reality. Her followers will never experience the fullness of the Lord’s glory.

Like Moses you must trust God to do what only God can do. With a word make something out of nothing.

When everything is hopeless. You must believe anyway. Decide to live not on the basis of what you know you cannot do, but on what God said He will do!


Many Christians lives are ones of quiet despair. Attempting to live a holy, sinless life without God’s supernatural power— His glory.

They are stuck in no man’s land. Caught between the Kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness. Standing alongside them in no man’s land are hopelessness, failure, shame and guilt.

Was there a time when you felt caught between the Kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness?

What did you do to cope during this time?

Life is on cruise control. Yes, there are dips and potholes on the road forcing you to slow down. But you are confident your destiny is up ahead. Spiritually, you are doing everything you know to do. In fact, your relationship with Papa has never been better.

Then one day, death erects a roadblock.



Pink slip

Natural disaster



Equilibrium vanishes. No longer thinking coherently. Your brain is a video game. Bombarded with thoughts at record speed, many illogical. Ramming you into walls. Leaving you dazed and confused. Your soul eventually malfunctions and screams, “Game over!”

What is the strategy that will make you a winner in this game called life?


Christ reminds us if we will persevere— overcome— conquer. There are promises— blessings awaiting us here on earth and in eternity.


There is not a single scenario of circumstances that have not been foreseen by Papa. It is impossible for Him to devise a plan that will fail. After all, He knows everything before it happens.

Do not raise the white flag and surrender before you reach the finish line. Papa is running beside you. Cheering you on to victory.

The person who continues to study God’s perfect teachings that make people free, and who remains committed to them will be blessed. People like that don’t merely listen and forget. They actually do what God’s teachings say.
