words are spirit

Words Are Spirit

Thursday September 21, 2023 The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63b The Lord in the verse above tells us an interesting fact about words: words are spirit. The words of Jesus are spirit and life, but other words carry spirit, just not necessarily the spirit of life. You see, there is a fundamental difference between the physical and spiritual realms. In the spiritual realm, there can be a wealth of information transfer at a rate far higher than that which is possible in the physical realm. Knowledge can be transferred to you in the spirit. This is why, when you study, speak in tongues too. You need not just mental knowledge but a spiritual knowledge transfer. ... »

you are saved by grace

By Grace You are Saved

Thursday September 14, 2023   For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8   Jesus said men ought always to pray and not to faint – Lk 18:1. He said this because prayer actually releases the grace of God into our lives.   Prayer is so important because grace is so important.   Grace empowers, lifts up and blesses the lives of men. Grace is God’s system for elevating men in life – “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” James 4:6   The fact is, whatever you have today, you have only because God either helped or allowed you to have it. There is no one who can say No to ... »

The Power of Self Control and Discipline

Monday September 4, 2023   He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls. Prov.25:28 God wants us to be disciplined. He wants us to experience the power of self control. Above pressing on to achieve your goals on earth, God desires your discipline. What do we mean by discipline? We mean to develop ‘self-control’. Putting the needs of the spirit above the will of the flesh Choosing obedience to God, and using the power of self control over comfort and the will of the flesh anytime, any day. Discipline is the ability to control our impulses, desires, and actions in alignment with God’s will and our long-term plans. The p... »

Life Favors the Strong

Life Favors the Strong

Tuesday August 29, 2023 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Ephesians 6:10 The Lord will usually not do anything for you that would not require some input from you. We must be strong in prayer, in speaking and studying the Word, and in working on our goals. Life naturally favors the strong and puts the weak at a disadvantage. The strong tend to win. It even takes strength to survive. It doesn’t sound fair, but that’s how life is. The people written about in the Bible went through challenges. Even the men we read about in history went through issues. No one really remembers what they went through, though. No one will remember what you are going through.... »

speaking in tongues

The Power of Speaking in Tongues in the Bible

Jude 1:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost. The Word tells us in our opening verse that speaking in tongues (praying in the Holy Ghost) helps us build ourselves up in our faith, hallelujah. When we speak in tongues, we are built up in our inner man, in our spirits. We rise in the realm of the spirit, because the spiritual controls the physical (1 John 4:4, 1 John 5:4-5). Jude 1:20 But you, beloved, build yourselves up on your most holy faith [make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit. When you speak in tongues, you rise physically, mentally, and spiritually. Physically, you get more o... »
