It’s still dark “out there.” But “in here”…in the realm of spirit….it is
light. “Out there” is the realm of flesh, the natural world, there is a dark
night of circumstance. “In here” is the realm of spirit is where my
"life is hid"... "in Christ" "the life I now live is by the faith of the Son"
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things
which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but
the things which are not seen are eternal (2 Cor. 4:18).
Our source is not external, that which we receive through natural
senses. We walk by faith and not by sight, calling those things which be
not as though they were (Rom. 4:17). Everything outside of Christ is
darkness and death, but “in here,” in Christ, all is light and life.
Light represents understanding (Eph. 1:18). We are children of the
Light not the night! (1 Thessalonians 5:5). As we partake of
The Tree of Life we become the Light of the world. (John 8:12)
His very Life is as a light to everyone in our life. We bring His
presence with us wherever we go and it will cut through every
bondage and fear in all those who God has placed in our life.
The Lord has called us to be a present day witness and expression of His life.
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people:
but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. (Isaiah 60:1-2)

There is a fire burning within me. It is a hunger for spiritual reality.
The carnal natural mind is ever trying to pull God into a place where
He can be defined. This is the greatest hindrance to a Spirit filled walk.
There is a quality in those who are filled with the Spirit. They are empty.
It is impossible to fill something afresh each day with resurrection life
unless one has crossed Jordan (death). The Lord is shinning ever brighter
in our hearts. We see the emptiness of the world. Have you stopped to think
about this. What if...you gained the whole world but lost your soul...
One day there will come an unveiling. Who you are as a result of all
the decisions you have made during your time here on earth will be
revealed as you stand before the Lord. If during your life you allowed
the Lord to give you a single eye then your whole body will be full of light.
Love not the world, neither the things of the world. Begin your Spirit filled
journey now. Find a place to be alone with The Lord. Pour out your heart
each day until it is empty. Then wait....He will do something you can't.....
that is of eternal value......

In the glory of Your presence
I find rest for my soul
In the depths of Your love I find peace makes me whole
I love I love I love Your presence I love I love I love Your presence
I love I love I love You Jesus I love I love I love Your presence
If you want it come and get it for crying out loud
The love that I have given You was never a doubt
Let go of Your heart Let go of Your head and feel it now
I love I love I love Your presence
I love You Jesus, I love You Father, I love You Holy Spirit
Come and fill me, Come and fill me, Jesus
Come and fill me, I am waiting for You.

Spirit Words are like surgeons scalpels. With our mouths we
have the power of life or death. We can use our words with the
Holy Spirit as a scalpel to bring healing and restoration into the
lives of others, or we can use words in a destructive manner that
spiritually harms and injures others. “Reckless words pierce like a
sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing” (Prov. 12:18).
We will encounter many who have been wounded by words.
Emotional wounds and words that have been released only to harm
often are blocking an individual’s ability to receive the
spiritual and physical healing they need. The Holy Spirit will touch
on the need for forgiveness as a point of release for many.
Many times, the person is bound by words that have been spoken
against them that have resided in their heart for many years and
need to be renounced and rejected as not of The Lord. Harmful
words are like links that form chains that can over time bind a
person from being who The Lord desires them to be. As we
spend time with The Lord each day we are filled with light.
As we walk in this light we have true fellowship and see
those around us with Spirit Eyes and begin to minister words
of life that break every chain.

Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning,
the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
Doctrinal differences always arise from our judgments, and not from the Spirit of God; for God is love, and there is an attraction in Jesus Christ which draws men together. The closer we are drawn to Jesus, the greater the attraction toward Him. Therefore, as the Lord’s children draw closer to Jesus, they must of necessity be closer to each other. "That in all things He might have preeminence."

2 Corinthians 5:14-16 (KJV)
14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.
How incompetent we are in our own ability. How ignorant we are in our own wisdom.
How weak we are in our own strength. But even as we see this Father we confess
that in and through Christ we can do all things that you have called us to do.
Even that thing which we have said in our heart is impossible, Lord thank You that
as Your Love is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit it constrains us to judge correctly
and not to know ourselves or our brothers and sisters with natural eyes. Amen
It is the Love of Christ that is the only basis of an obedience that is acceptable and pleasing
to the Father. Except that love be our primary motivation then we are not walking in the Spirit.
Many walk in fear of judgement as their motivation but this is not a place to remain. It is the Love
of Christ that brings every thought captive. It is this love that lifts us and transports us into
the Kingdom…into who we are in Him…sons…a bride…overcomers.
If I allow this love to apprehend me I might be able to see the one inside of you…the real you that is crying out to
be made one with The Lord and be joined to His body with cords of love that can’t be broken!
We are joined together with this love for one purpose. That there might be a revelation of Him
as the Head of a many membered body. Each member as a branch joined to The Vine.
Each member as a joint of supply. As faith lays hold of the finished work of the Cross this
begins to be our experience. When one died all died...henceforth we are known not after
the flesh. We are not ignorant of the devices of the enemy of our faith. He would keep us
in a carnal realm of natural knowledge where he can sow seeds of discord and separate us.
It is the Love of Christ that brings every thought captive to the reality of the Cross.
Love the Lord with all your heart and soul…Love your brothers and sisters as yourself.
It is only when we take our eyes off ourselves and our brethren and put them on the Lord
the the reality of the Cross becomes our experience. The Kingdom of God is righteousness
peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

There is a special work of the Lord taking place in His body. From among the saved of the church are those who have heard and responded with heart obedience to come up higher. To be taken far beyond their salvation into a hidden place of preparation. It is first a place of dependence. As a bride we take upon us the name and nature of the Lord. As sons we cooperate with the Lord in a throne relationship of authority. The authority and the anointing is now moving from the pulpit out into the body. The man made structures will not contain or restrain this “new thing” that the Lord is doing. It is an end time authority that will find expression in our everyday lives. The Lord is dealing with that control that comes from the pulpit. Where everything is controlled and believers just become spectators.
The ministry, the burden and the anointing will begin to manifest itself on our job, at the mall, in the supermarket, in our neighborhoods, wherever the Lord has placed us. Many in the pulpit have been disobedient and not prepared the saints for the work of the ministry and released them but have held them back. The word of the Lord to the saints in the seats is "arise and shine for thy light has come and the glory of the Lord is upon thee! (Isaiah 60) The Lord will cause you to stand tall in every area of your life. You will be witnesses. As you are faithful and obedient. The Lord will lead some of you to prepare your home for small group meetings. The Lord will greatly use these meetings to minister to His body. For true ministry is one on one. In most large meetings the needs of The Lord and of the body go unmet. The Lord is going to use us to minister......normal people. No special talents, charisma, education or personality. You and me…….no title at the end of our names….for if we had these things it would be obvious that we could do it, but the Lord is going to use that which is not to bring to naught that which is. This anointing, the enabling will fall upon and flow forth from the faithful and obedient that have no obvious talent or ability that the Glory may be of The Lord. As He is lifted up….all will be drawn to Him. There will be a present word that will flow forth and many will be awakened to the calling of God and brought into a place of preparation and maturity. The Lord doesn't see as man sees outwardly to natural ability. He looks upon the heart. If we each bring the 5 loaves and 2 fishes that we have, He will multiply them and feed many! Its not by might or power but by the Holy Spirit that it shall be done.
1Samuel 16:7 But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.
