God’s Will

God’s Will

[cvm_video id=”3638″]

We must pray, hear and the hardest part, obey. The Bible shows us that obedience always pays. God has never chasten, beat or condemn anyone for obeying Him. When you obey God, the blessings will come and overtake you. You will not be able to out run your blessings or hide from them. They will seek you out and find you. Then why do we spend so much time crying out for blessings?
There is something missing in the “formula” of Christianity. There is something missing on how to get your prayers answered. The answer is not in a formula. It is in the relationship.
Jesus healed the sick in many different ways. Sometimes He spat on them.Sometimes He said, “Go, you are healed”. Sometimes He prayed for them or laid hands on them. Other times, people laid hands on Him.
When the woman with blood issues touched Jesus (Mark 5:25-34; Luke 8:43-47; Matthew 9:20-22) He asked, “Who touched me?” His disciples were confused since they were being mobbed and grabbed at by a huge crowd, but He said that He felt power leave Him. Notice, she wasn’t the only one who touched Jesus, but she was the only one who was healed. After she revealed and explained herself, He replied, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction”.
It was not by her knowledge. It wasn’t because the woman believed harder than anybody else. It was by faith which is a gift of God!
Faith is not something you do. It is something that happens to you. You cannot “do” a gift. You do not conjure a gift. Once God has given you the gift of faith, all you have to do is walk it out. Of all those people who were groping at Jesus, only one had the word of God, the Father. The word that the woman received was that if she touched Jesus, He would heal her. Jesus knew someone was healed because He felt the virtue leave him. Have you ever prayed for someone and all of a sudden you feel yourself empty into that person as God gave you the words to pray? When you pray what God says from Heaven, every word will come to pass exactly, 100%.

“Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

Faith without manifestation becomes dull very fast but we are going from faith to faith. Now that you believe what is written, let us go on to what is spoken. This is treacherous territory. You cannot walk away from scripture just because you hear from God. You will get messed up! Scripture is the “tuning fork”. You have to stay in the written word in order to identify the one who is speaking because there are many voices and spirits.

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but test the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”

(1 John 4:1)

How do you test the spirits? First you must be with people who hear God. And you need to get confirmation on every word you hear. This means that you wait until God tells you to move. If it is of God, He will let you know. He will confirm your word. You will not make God mad if you ask God to confirm the word with two or more witnesses, through the written word, or through dreams and visions. If it is of God, He will do it. But if what you heard is of the devil, He will not confirm the word. He doesn’t take the time. He is too busy. He’ll walk away and leave you alone.


There is a lot of people who want to act based on their emotions because you can hear a lot of things in your emotions. You can even do a lot of good things because of your emotions.


“Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit.” (Hebrews 6:1-3)

Things that you do out of emotion might seem to be good initially, yet to God it is dead works because He did not tell you to do it. For example, you might have felt it is a good thing to give money to someone who was having a hard time. But, instead, God was angry with you because you got in His way. God was trying to teach that person to walk by faith but you came along and did things your way rather than His way.


By staying in communication with God, you will know what He does and doesn’t want you to do. We cannot rely on any kind of formula to accomplish what God has planned for us so we must listen for His Voice while also studying and comparing it to the Scriptures. If you pray, hear and obey, you will know God’s way.

Receiving Faith

Receiving Faith

[cvm_video id=”3640″]

You may have heard of Word of Faith and understand the definition of faith.


“Faith is the substance of things hoped for without the evidence of things yet seen” (Hebrews 11:1)

But, how do you get faith? And once you receive faith, what do you do with it? And what is expected of you once you’ve obtained it?


Countless believers are looking for faith and trying to act on it, but without spiritual guidance, sometimes it comes out all wrong. Occasionally, it turns out false. Many times, it becomes something other than what God intended.

Hebrews 11:6 teaches us that “without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” Too often we get this reversed and think that our faith is supposed to provide us with rewards rather than be used to please God.

Many people claim to live by faith yet are struggling to figure out how to get their finances in order because they are focused on how to live the abundant life. These people say they pray faithfully, but they are whining and crying like little children saying; “Oh Lord, don’t You know I have needs?” “Oh Lord, can’t You see?” “Oh Lord, what are You going to do about it?”

O my, we have misunderstood what prayer truly is and how to go about it.

In prayer, we need to go to the Lord in faith and say, “Lord You know my needs before I ask. Therefore, I come to ask how do I receive?” Don’t expect to hear or receive your answer right away. In fact, it can take a few days before He reveals the answer to your prayer. Every time someone pleaded with Jesus He eventually gave insight on how to obtain their needs. Nothing has changed, it’s still the same today.

Many people try to get around this and memorize scripture, treating it like a genie’s bottle that you can rub three times and chant an ancient word or two and out pops the answer. But what good does it do to memorize scripture if you do not have it in your heart? It doesn’t work that way. But, if you ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you what you need, as you read from the Holy Scriptures a word may leap from the pages and come right into your mind, letting you know that God just spoke to you.


“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17).

The “word” in this verse is not “logos”, which is the written word of God but “rhema” which is God’s spoken word.

Only if a spoken word has a measure of faith in it, will it manifest. But how does it manifest? Through prayer and by faith we prophesy as Jesus has taught us; “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10a). We must first hear from Heaven what we are to pray or prophesy before we speak it on Earth.


“Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith” (Romans 12:6). 

Jesus wants a personal relationship with you. He wants you to hear His voice. When you give Him your problems, He will show you what to do. When faith comes, we receive direction via the Holy Spirit by Grace through faith.


“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).  

Grace is unmerited favor. We did not earn our salvation. We didn’t do anything to gain it. He gave it to us freely. If you go to someone who is saved, born of God, when they die they go to Heaven, you can’t take that from them. They haven’t seen Heaven, nor have they been to Heaven but they know they are going to Heaven because of their faith. We did not earn our salvation. We do not earn our revelation. But we need to come to Christ as babes, knowing nothing, totally leaning upon Him and His Wisdom in order to obtain our needs.


“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to bring salvation to everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, ‘The just shall live by faith.'” (Romans 1:16, 17).

God wants to take us to another level of belief in Him, to go from faith to faith. Or as this scripture is sometimes translated, “from first to last” indicating a graduation from the basic to the greatest. We can experience that maturing of faith when we seek Him first to hear His Voice, follow what He has instructed us to do, and have confidence that He will provide as He has promised. By this trusting in Him fully, and leaning not on our strength or understanding, we shall receive and live by Faith.

Desires oF Your Heart


[cvm_video id=”3642″]

I had always wondered why I did not receive everything I wanted in my heart when I prayed to God. I wanted a better life, body, car and the list goes on, but none of those things were happening for me. Why was I not receiving the desires of my heart?


Late one evening in August of 2011, I had an experience while in the hospital that helped me finally understand the truth behind this verse: “Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4)


That evening, I began experiencing the most intense pain I had ever endured. I kept thinking it would go away any minute, but instead it did the opposite: the more I prayed the harder the pain hit. I did not want to wake up my wife Debbie, so I thought I’d just drive myself to the emergency room, get a pill or maybe a shot and come home. Well, that did not happen; in fact, before I knew it I was being scheduled for surgery. As soon as I could, I called Debbie and told her where I was. Within a few minutes, Debbie and my daughter Savannah were at my bedside. I had already started feeling much better, but the doctors insisted that I needed surgery right away. However, they could not do the procedure and needed to transport me to another hospital. After three days of waiting to be transferred, my body still had no pain and my patience was running thin. I was pacing the floor, wanting to go home, but the doctors would not release me. Even if I signed papers clearing them of any wrongdoing; they said I could not leave.


The doctor came in and told me that they had found a hospital that would do the surgery sixty miles away. They loaded me up into an ambulance to transport me as Debbie and Savannah followed us in the car. That summer we had experienced 70 straight days of temperatures over 100 degrees and, unfortunately, the air conditioner did not work in the ambulance; needless to say, it was not a fun ride.


Frustrated and hot, I arrived at the second hospital. They rolled me up to my room and I started the waiting process all over again. As I stood looking out the window, I was drawn toward this older church building in the middle of downtown Fort Worth, Texas. Over and over I keep walking back to the window looking down at the old church building; after about five or six times the Lord brought to my remembrance that years ago I had ministered in this old church building. As my mind began to recall all the prophetic words and miracles that took place in that old wonderful house of God, I suddenly began to hunger for those days to return. This feeling was much stronger than just wanting it. This desire came down from the throne of God and into my heart. Which was much, much more than any ‘want’ could ever be. This desire was being backed up by a God-given plan; it had taken the top spot on my list of priorities.


I knew in order to activate my God-given desire I had to get out of this hospital. I called the nurse and told her I was leaving. She said I could not leave, but I was adamant and I told her they could not hold me any longer. The head nurse came in and after hearing me out, she said she would rush up the schedule for me to have all my testing done so I could be ready for surgery the next day. I told her that I had prayed about it and that I laid out my fleece for a sign. If I was not in the sonogram room by 2:30 I was leaving and she agreed. Shortly, the orderly came in and wheeled me down to the floor to have a sonogram test taken. I watched my clock on my cell phone and at 2:30 I told the orderly to take me back to my room, I was leaving. He said I could not without the head nurse’s approval, so told him to call her. She told the orderly to bring me back up to my room and they checked me out. Debbie and I walked out to the car and left the hospital. That was 6 years ago and I have not had any more problems since.


Since then, we have added numerous prophetic ministers who are now sending out prophesies to those who are in need. We have also witnessed the hand of God opening many doors, leading us to the “Vision of the Tabernacle.” This vision from God was given to me in the late 1980’s. In the vision, I saw a round building that had an interior circular hallway. As I walked around the hall I noticed a set of double doors every so often, with a small window in each door. There were pairs of shoes lined along the wall. Looking through one of the windows, I witnessed many people with their hands in the air worshiping our God all around this round stage. The carpet was very long and looked like angel’s hair. Over the stage was an arrangement of screens with pictures flashing like a slide show. One of the pictures was of a young girl who was missing, another was of a man’s business. People were walking away from the alter, going to small partitioned areas that were all around the inside wall of the sanctuary. In these cubicles, I saw a phone and screen and a key board. The anointing was so strong people seemed to just float from one place to the other. I knew within myself these people were finding God and His Word for these people calling and writing into Prophetic Ministries Tabernacle.


After all these years the vision is just as fresh in my mind as it was the day I received it from the Holy Spirit. The time is coming very soon when this vision will be a reality.


The desires of my heart are to see you set free and delivered from all that stops you from serving God. His desires are for you to experience the most powerful move of the Holy Spirit this generation has ever known. My prayer is that you desire in your heart to join me in this next great move of the Holy Spirit.

In the Blink of an Eye

In the Blink of an Eye

[cvm_video id=”3644″]


When I Get to Heaven

People say that when we get to Heaven, we can ask Jesus for the answers to spiritual questions that we may have. But I ask, “Why would we need to wait until then?” Wouldn’t it be more helpful for us if we had the answers to these questions now? What good will it do for us to know when we are in Heaven? We need answers to questions now!


I have found that we can pray and ask Jesus now and receive His answers for today. Scripture says, “My sheep know My voice,” (John 10:27), so we ought to know the answers because Scriptures tell us, “You have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things” (1 John 2:20).


For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light. If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear. Then He said to them, ‘Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given’” (Mark 4:22-24).


We can have the answers to spiritual questions, but many Believers have difficulty with this belief if their doctrine does not teach this truth. It is not wise to limit God in the ways He speaks to us. In the Holy Scriptures, He tells us that the Holy Spirit will teach us and that we can hear His voice and know His ways. Once we learn to hear and trust His voice, NO ONE will ever talk us out of our experiences with Him.


These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 
(1 Corinthians 2:13-14)


Steadfast in Your Faith 

Have you ever had someone try to convince you that what you experienced through God really didn’t happen? Maybe they tried to tell you it was just an emotional thing; but try as they may, critics simply cannot convince true Believers that what they experienced was false or that when they die they will not go to Heaven.


This life is only a “blink of an eye” in comparison to eternity. We have a difficult time understanding the concept of eternity, where there is no beginning and no end. When you consider Heaven and eternity, all of the problems in this life seem to fade away. They become far less important when looking at them from this perspective. We should not take this world so seriously, because this life is not really what we are living for.


Dying to Yourself

Many people need answers to their situations and their problems, and they are concerned about their children and their future. They pray continually to God not realizing that it is time for them to let God handle their cares. We should be a people who are unmoved by what happens in the world. Yet we find ourselves being sucked into all the worries and troubles of this life. When bad things happen, we search for reasons why. Perhaps we were in the wrong place at the wrong time. We are allowing all of the things in this life to create tension and pressure deafening our spiritual senses.


It is important to remember that whatever you are facing, it is not your problem if you will give it to God! What God will do in your life once you let go of it, will absolutely amaze you. God will begin to move certain people into your path and guide you into a place where you will reap the harvest without doing anything but to pray, hear, and obey!


This peaceful release is what God really wants from us. The biggest problem with mankind is that we want to be in control. We want to control our lives, circumstances, other people and most of all, God. It is in our sinful nature that drives us to be this way. We must let go and let God. When we do, we find that all things work out just as God has willed.


I Am a Witness

My brother-in-law, Wes, was the praise and worship leader when his pastor decided to move to another state. The pastor wanted Wes to take over as pastor of the church. Wes did not want to do that because his father had been a pastor, and he had watched his father go through some very hard times.


However, Wes finally surrendered and accepted the position. The following day, the pastor received an offer on his house which he had been trying to sell for over a year. At the same time, Wes experienced a breakthrough. You see, Wes was in business with his brother Steven; they were buying and fixing up homes to sell, but the homes were not selling. They tried everything they knew to sell these properties. They put up banners and contracted the specialized services of different realtors, but nothing good was coming of it, only more debt.


Right after Wes had accepted the pastoral position everything started to change. Within a couple of weeks after accepting the pastor’s position, the homes which were a heavy financial burden to the brothers were also sold. Wes was a changed person. He had been truly blessed after giving up and started moving into the very position he tried to avoid. When we are in God’s will the devil cannot touch us. Everything changes when we decide to die to our desires and follow Jesus.


We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him” (1 John 5:18)
