Time to Prepare for the Big Turn
Every month in our modern calendar has a 'flavor' - think April v August; June v. July. This biblical month we are entering has a flavor also: Think of the end of a year. It's a time to reflect back and address what changes are needed. Accounts are balanced. Lessons are learned. We prepare to enter into the new. But this month, we close out not only a year but a decade. And with that, we move into a new prophetic era. The month (called Elul in scripture) is a time
Close Doors. Open Freedom. Change Your 'DNA'
Wow! Amazing night at the Deck. Powerful worship. Packed Word. God keeps upping the game on us. Kim brought the word and you know what that means: Specific, engaging, humorous, scripturally-anchored and story-illustrated: Practical examples and applications aplenty. Most of us have little to no clue as to the open doors that are operational within us. Why so? Eph. 4: 26-27 makes it clear that we can grant access to the enemy - and so often we don't even know t

The 3-Tier Attack to Trap You in Wilderness
Do you think that the current day institutional church is moving in all that God has intended for her? Yeah....me either. What about you and me? Are we moving in all that God intends for us? Israel's failure to get out of the wilderness and enter into the full Promise is no different than how we fail so to do. Last night we covered a number of the key factors that play out in this. Here's just one. There is a three-tier attack shown in Numbers 13 and 14. These
Facts & Friction, Fiction & Face-offs: A Month to Content for Your Promise
This is the biblical month when Israel was supposed to enter the long awaited Promised Land... Oops. What about you? What promise is before you now that God wants you to enter and occupy? What are the giants and intimidations that confront you? We struggle with the same dynamics that they did - Facts go through friction and become fiction. Face-offs and fear result: Refusal and rebellion follow. So easy to forget all that God has done on our behalf. So easy
