Too Busy... No way!

I took a friend grocery shopping while in Ottawa yesterday, since they don't have a car.   First of all, I was shocked at how little they spend on groceries.  $50.00 was it! One big bag of mung beans and some other beans, vegetables, milk and eggs and that was it.  What a shock!  I spend around $100-150/week on groceries for the same number of people.

Yup.... it was a eye opener for sure.  Now I am looking for ways that I can trim my grocery bill a bit more, without sacrificing the variety of our diet.  I don't think I'm ready to have beans 4 different ways a week.

The other thing she pointed out was that I didn't give out a word of knowledge in the grocery store and she's right.  I have been so busy video taping and video editing that I've fallen out of the groove and slipped back into not doing much with what I have.

It's time to set up some better boundaries with certain individuals and stoke the fire again.  If I have been there once I can get there again.

Here's some confessions that I use to stoke the fire of God inside of me.  Speak them out loud and see how they help you!

Thank You Lord that You are always with me. That you will never leave me or forsake me.
Thank You Lord that I see with your eyes and that Your love compels me to reach out and help relieve suffering, wherever I find it.
Thank You Lord that I am full of you, Holy Spirit.
Thank You Lord that I am a walking conduit of Heaven's glory and presence.
Thank You Lord that I release the light of your glory within me every where I go.
Thank You Lord that I resist the devil and he has to flee.
Thank You Lord that I exult Your word above my experience.
Thank You Lord that I don't let a lack of instant results deter me from reaching out and commanding healing to flow to others.   I can always give them a church business card and ask them to contact us with their testimony later.
Thank You Lord for all the angels that hearken to Your word through me.  Show me what to decree so the angels get their testimonies today.
Thank You Lord that I resist fear and I walk with Holy Spirit.  Freely I have received and freely I give.
Thank You Lord that I don't grieve Holy Spirit today. 
Thank You Lord that I am quick to repent when I don't feel Holy Spirit's abiding presence around me.
Thank You Lord that I honor your 'nudges' above my need for comfort or security.
THank You Lord that I seize the moments to make a difference for You.
Thank You for Heaven on earth flowing through me.
Thank You Lord that I'm bold because I'm righteous!
Thank you Lord that I am Your revival vessel today, right now!
Thank You Lord for going ahead of me and preparing the path for me.
Thank you for opportunities to advance your kingdom and for your help to recognize what you would have me to say and do.
Thank You Lord for more of your love shed abroad in my heart to day. 
Thank You Lord for a great day with You.
Thank you Lord that there's nothing that can happen that we can't get through together.
Thank you that You are working all things together for my good.
Thank you for blessing and protecting Israel and all her people.
Thank You Lord for protecting all my leaders.  Bless them and guide them Lord.  Amen!

That's a good way to start.   Believe it or not, I have to get past the point of 'what if nothing happens' too.  Actually, something always happens when we pray for people.  It is just it starts on the inside first and works it's way to the outside.  Just like a cold starts inside before you ever have symptoms, so does healing start from the inside.

Therefore be encouraged!   You will get your testimonies!  God is faithful!  He won't test you beyond what you can endure.  And in the mean time he's pruning you and growing you into a short, bushy tree that bears much fruit for the Kingdom of God. Hallelujah!

Bless you!

Howdy.  Back home from the tent meetings.  I've done so much video editing and recording this past week.  I had some great helpers along the way, Praise the Lord!

Someone was just talking about the  Jezebel spirit and that's a huge topic.  Without belittling their concerns I am just going to say a few things about her.  First of all, she's not everywhere at once.  Second we have authority over her and we need to use it.  Third,  the Lord has spoken through his prophets and the day is here when she will be cast down in the churches of Canada.  God is raising up eunuchs to cast her out just like he used eunuchs in the Old Testament to cast her out. (ref. 2Kings 9:32-33)

A Jezebel spirit works through control and manipulation and the lusts of the flesh to take out God's anointed people.  Very subtle at times, we need lots of wisdom to recognize her covert activities.  This spirit attacks men too.  It got associated with women because of Queen Jezebel from the old testament but I'm sure that wasn't the first time this spirit was dealt with.

It takes people who are dead to the lusts of the flesh, possessing much Godly wisdom to deal with her.  This is a strongman spirit that is boss over many other spirits. "When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are safe." (Luke 11:21)  "In fact, no one can enter a strong man's house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can rob his house."  (Mark 3:27)

We do have authority to bind up the strong man  and many do. Where we need to get stronger is holding the ground that we are taking.  Back lash does come and if you're not ready for it it can give you a nasty surprise.

I cannot emphasize enough, it's one thing to go around binding every wicked spirit you sence.  We need wisdom to pray according to Holy Spirit's leading.  After you have done that ask Holy Spirit to help you hold the ground you have taken.

It only takes one little fox to ruin the crop!  We need to recognize the little foxes that come in to steal the fruit of our kingdom endeavors. (ref. Sgs. 2:15)

Too many times we bind the strong man and leave our walls down!  Then like the Bible say, " When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, 'I will return to the house I left.' When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first." (Luke 11:24-26)  We need to guard what we have taken in the Kingdom so that the door is not reopened for the enemy to come back in! 

Okay.... so how do you protect what you have decreed? Get your angels working every day! Also, be prepared.  Little thoughts of strife, envy and offense need to be taken captive immediately.  Keep up on your positive kingdom confessions.   Psalm 91, 149 and 29 are good places to start.   2Cor. 10:4-5, 3John 2, 1John 4:4, 1 John 2:21-27 and Is. 54:17 will definitely help you. Stay in fellowship with other believers.  If you get into trouble call a friend to help you pray and break off any retaliation.

In consistency lies your power. Every morning decree that you walk in the Light of God's countenance, that you are a blessing everywhere you go, that no evil will come near your home or life, that your steps are bathed in butter-- favor and anointing.  Make sure that you are serving in your local church.  There are huge rewards for serving in your local church (another story for another day).

You can do this. I am still learning  how to walk 'anointed' and not in what people have told me I was all my life. I can do what God has called me to do and so can you.  We don't rely on our own abilities, but on Holy Spirit, right? Right!  Jesus says to us,"... take heart! I have overcome the world." (John 16:33)

As we learn to walk hand in hand with Jesus we will walk more and more in His authority.   Jesus didn't go around binding every wicked spirit. They left when he showed up.  The more we learn to walk in our Kingdom authority the less we have to go around binding wicked kings.  They start to flee when we show up, without us even saying a word.

So keep growing.  Ask Holy Spirit what you are to pray in each and every situation and He'll guide you safely through your day.  Have fun learning how to be a King or Queen for the King of Kings.  Learn how to dispense his justice everywhere you go.  Practice showing mercy to those who don't deserve it.  Get really good at enforcing the victory of Calvery  and making all Jesus's enemies his footstool! (Heb. 10:13)

I bless you with Kingdom authority now.  May you walk in the authority that God has given me. May you rule and reign in all your situations through Holy Spirit and bring much praise, honor and glory to Jesus every day, everywhere you go! Amen! (ref. Rom.5:17,19)

I Am So Proud!

I am so proud of the guys that go to my church. This fellow Glen, that I got on video tape is amazing.

He's so natural about sharing the Kingdom of God.   I am guessing, but I think it's because he was in the church 30+ years before he really got activated, that he's so thorough with people.  He doesn't assume that people don't want Jesus or they don't want to get saved.

Because of that he has led many people to the Lord.  We need to applaud  people like this because Revival is dead in the water when people are not getting saved.  This man has led so many people to the Lord and brought many people to  the Healing Services at Kinburn Revival/

I put some text in the video so you could see the progression I see him using on a regular basis.  It's working for him and it will work for you too!

Go and be blessed! You are a Mobile Healing Unit.  Your hands are armed and dangerous and kick the devil's butt wherever you go.  Your words are setting captives free, speaking life to dead situations and healing to those that are oppressed.   You ARE his ambassador! Amen!

Big hugs,
