The Titanic is Going to Sink!


“The church is a lifeboat, not a pleasure boat, to bring the news of salvation to the lost.”

Reinhard Bonke


Our mortal life and the security of this world can be compared to the Titanic.

Cruising along, fat on the excesses and sins of this world. Our futures end up in a shocking, bitter and unbenounced end; all the wealth and prosperity in the world amounting to nothing, in an instant.

I envision Christ rowing up in a lifeboat. He cups His nail punctured hands together and yells to the ship, “Your ship is going to sink! Do you have ears to hear? This ship is going to sink!”


“Here, get into my lifeboat. I will save you. I am the only way out for all of you!”

I wonder how many people would have actually heeded His warning had this actually happened the night of April 14, 1912. But then I consider, had He already spoken to most, if not all those whose lives that came to an earthly end that night? In encounters, in dreams and visions, in the former days of their lives. How many knew Him? How many had actually discerned the spiritual message of love and salvation? How many chose wisely, to their great gain?

Today, we are riding on our Titanic. Today, Christ has come up to the side of our big flawless and beautiful liner and He calls forth to all who have ears to hear, “This ship is going to sink!”

He will not lift us up from our place of comfort. He will not pick us up and move us over against our will. We have to choose. We must get into the lifeboat willingly and of our own volition. His is the only way to safety and security.

To leave our Titanic means to leave our bondages and our comforts behind, handing them to Christ as we step into the lifeboat. It is a step of faith. A choice everyone must make before their ship sinks.

His lifeboat leads to an unimaginable place of eternal great joy and love. Our Titanic leads to a place of unspeakable sorrow and death.

Today, He calls. Tomorrow, He will call. And every day, He will call until the day of the end.

Matt 7:13-14 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Prov 16:25 There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Make no mistake, you are on that boat, and it is going to sink. Christ is calling to you from His lifeboat with a choice that you must make. What then shall your choice be?

Reach Out and Take It!

God does not owe us a thing. Because Jesus paid our price in full, down to the very last penny, at the cross.

We have been given the “Access All Areas” card, the “Get Out of Jail Free” card. We have been totally justified in His death. We have been made fully righteous in the power of His resurrection. We have been given full access to the supernatural power of God that raised Christ from the dead by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, so that we can raise others from the dead.

We have it all.

Jesus did everything for everyone all in one glorious moment in time, for all time. Nothing else need be done. Therefore everything we need has already been provided for us.

So what’s missing, when we face trials and difficulties of all kinds that bring us down? What’s missing when what we hope for has not happened?

When we don’t see or understand why things are not happening the way we desire, there is but one reason. Lack of faith in the fullness of Christ’s finished work.

If I don’t believe in the power, I cannot operate in the power. If I do not believe I am righteous, I remain under the law. If I do not believe in Christ’s saving power, I miss His salvation. Everything comes by faith.

In whatever I doubt or disbelieve, regardless of the experiences I have witnessed for however long I have witnessed them, regardless of however long I have suffered, I will not see it.

Doubt or disbelief is the essence of the leaven that works its way throughout the dough.

Some part of us does not agree in the fullness of Christ’s sacrifice. Some part of us doubts the full power of the cross. Hence what we hope for is deferred.

He did everything! Nothing else need be done. We already have it all fully available to us.

All that remains is to reach out and take it, by grace through faith.


Here’s my homework assignment for you!

The Modern Day Apostle

The Apostle never looks to be honored. He looks to honor. He does not care about a title yet walks firmly in his call.

The Apostle never seeks to be served. He serves always.

The Apostle leads by himself first being led by the Holy Spirit.

The Apostle spreads Revival by walking in Revival. He is a Presence seeker always.

The Apostle is a representative of the Holy Spirit. He is a messenger.

The Apostle leads by having relationship with those whom he leads. He loves in all things.

The Apostle restores that which is broken with truth.

The Apostle is a peacemaker who shuns divisions be speaking against that which divides.

The Apostle spreads Gospel truth by walking in the Word of truth, not by good sounding arguments.

The Apostle is an advocate. He is chosen by the Holy Spirit, not by any person.

The Apostle is a missionary. He has a mission. But missionaries are not always apostles.

The Apostle is one who is sent out. But “sent out” has many meanings.

The Apostle is a warrior. Because the Apostle is constantly confronted. He wars with the weapons of the Spirit.

The Apostle is fearless. Because he faces accusations time and again.

The Apostle walks as Christ, so that all who do accuse would be revealed to truth.

The Apostle fathers by himself being fathered by the Spirit. There are no earthly fathers but apostles.

The Apostle walks in the fruits of the Spirit, so that souls might witness true love.

The Apostle always seeks the next leader to minister in to. Because many who would lead have many doors in front of them to choose from. He guides them through the right doors.

The Apostle is a pioneer. He is always on the edge of the unknown, always leading the church into the spiritual by faith.

The Apostle leads the church off the map of what is known into spiritual realities that are formerly unknown, now revealed, yet always aligned with the Word of God.

The Apostle is just as invaluable to today’s church as they were in the first church. It started with 12, the 72, then the generations to follow.

This is who we are. This is where we are going. Step by step.

Footnote: As to gender, there are female apostles as well as male. This call is not gender specific.
Scriptural references: 1 Cor 12:11,28-30, John 15:16, Acts 20:28, 2 Tim 1:11. Eph 2:20, Acts 11:28, 21:10-11, Eph 3:5, 2 Cor 12:12, Acts 8:6-7, Heb 2:3-4. Heb 3:1, Acts 1:26, Gal 1:15-17, 1 Cor 15:7-9, 2 Cor 11:5, Rom 1:1, 2 Cor 8:23, 2 Cor 12:12, Luke 10:1-3.

Biblical examples of Apostles included primarily Paul, Barnabas (Acts 14:4), Silas (1 Thes 2:6), Timothy (1 Thes 2:6) and Titus (Book of Titus). There were first the 12, then the 72, and then generations of apostles that would follow.

After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Luke 10:1-3

False Apostles: 2 Cor 11:13, speak to the importance of right apostleship.

Respectfully but very directly, whomever says that that the office of Apostle does not exist today is absolutely in Biblical error. Such is a Pharisaical argument devoid of the Holy Spirit. Do not align with such a demonic argument.

SOZO’ed By Grace Through Faith


Life is in the Blood. Loose our blood and we loose our life. Jesus life Blood was voluntarily poured out at the cross. His blood poured out until He could no longer live. When the last drop of life poured out onto the ground from His veins, it was finished. His death became our atonement for our sins forevermore.

At the very moment of Jesus death, the curtain that hid the Holy of Holies from the Holy place of the temple of God was ripped from top to bottom. We had just had our sins atoned for by the expended blood of Jesus Christ. Once, separated from God by sin, now the wall of separation was done away with. We, all of us who proclaim Christ as our Savior, had just in that moment been given the right to enter into the most Holy place of all, to encounter God Face to face, because God saw our sin no more.

At the very moment that the last drop of life poured from Jesus veins, was now paved the way for the Holy Spirit to come into our inner man spirit, our Holy of Holies, where the Presence of the Spirit would mark us as His possession.

And the Lord said, “I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. But,” he said, “you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.” Ex 33:19-20

Such was the case before the cross of Christ. No one could see God Face to face and live. But through the blood, Father now sees us white as snow who have accepted Christ as their Savior. Now all of us who love Him can see Him “Face to face.” And that is Revival!

The tombs of the Saints of old burst open who were awaiting this very point in time when the Father would see their sins no more! And we were all washed in full, made completely clean of all sin for all time. Backward and forward in time, with the cross as standing at the highest point in all of history, everything points to this single great sacrifice. Christ did it all for us. And there is no longer any further sacrifice required.

The greatest moment in all of history was manifest in that one moment of time in which the last drop of life blood spilled from His veins onto the ground, that all mankind throughout all eternity, who would choose Him by faith, would be so completely set free from the penalty of sin that all are, without cost, fully welcomed to enter in to a Face to face encounter with the creator of the universe! What love! What joy! What a gift!

The blood set us all free. Free completely, for those who love Him by faith.

Then came the Power of God to supernaturally restore life to Jesus. It was a miracle. Jesus dead body was fully restored to life. Only God has power over life and death. The Power came, Grace came, the Holy Spirit came and then Jesus lived again. His resurrection in power became our resurrection in power, and by our faith, our full justification.

Thus, we have been forgiven in death and justified by resurrection power unto new life. By the washing of Jesus blood unto death we died, by resurrection power, now we also have been resurrected to a new life. We have been made completely righteous and fully justified by the power of the Spirit. We have been “Sozo’ed” by Jesus death and resurrection, and by the Power of the Holy Spirit of Grace through Faith!


What is Sozo?


Sozo: The Greek word Sozo appears 101 times in the Greek rendition of the Bible, all within the New Testament. Sozo is a product of the cross! Sozo means far more than just salvation. Christ came for far more than just our salvation. These are the meanings of this word:

  • Salvation or being born again.
  • To be saved from a certain death.
  • To save or to be saved.
  • To be made whole. Or to restore from brokenness to unbroken.
  • To be delivered from evil, or any bad thing.
  • To be healed in any way (spiritual, physical)
  • To be carried forward, or to be preserved.
  • To be made well.

Christ died and was raised in power for our full Sozo! Items 1-3: Salvation… this is only a part of Sozo, this is for then. Items 2-8: Holy Spirit POWER for service. This is for now and until we reach Heaven.

Every time you see the word “save or saved” replace it with the definition of Sozo, and you will then have a deeper understanding of what Jesus did at the cross. He is the truth of the Gospel and the power of the Gospel poured out for us! Every time you read the word “grace”, replace it with the word “power”, and you will get a deeper understanding of the power of the Gospel that Jesus provided for us!

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ-by grace you have been saved– and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God… Ephesians 2:4-8

…you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:11

For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law. Romans 3:28

Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?” I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. “Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”  Revelation 7:13-17

It will be counted to us who believe in him who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord, who was delivered up for our trespasses AND raised for our justification. Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Romans 4:24—5:2 

But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration (death) and renewal of the Holy Spirit (new life), whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:4-7

“Justify” is a legal term. There must be a judge who declares that one is innocent. The Court Room is in Father’s house. Father is our Judge and Jesus blood is our evidence. To be justified is a legal declaration that justice has been fully served.

The Holy Spirit is the power Who reveals the declaration of our Righteous Judge. We have been brought from death to life. As Jesus died fully, so we, in our sin died fully to our old man self. As Jesus was raised to life, so we have been raised to life in our new man self, having now been fully justified by our Judge that there is now no remembrance of our former self, no remembrance of our sin nor is there any condemnation or punishment for those who are in Christ Jesus.

The justice of God was first required. Christ went before the throne with His blood before the Father, offering up His blood so that through His death and the power of His resurrection, we might be justified before the Father as utterly sinless. As Jesus stood before the God of Justice in the Heavenly court of the Lord, so He stood there on our behalf. Having taken the full penalty that we deserved upon Himself, we became justified. And that, not of ourselves, it was the free gift of God!

Why is it then that we continue to think of ourselves with the old man mindset? Why should I dwell any longer upon thoughts and remembrances of the old person that I used to be, when it has already been fully justified in the Heavenly Courts? Justice has been served! I am no longer sin.

To remain in guilt condemnation or judgment is to reject the truth of our justification. There is always the need for the lifestyle of repentance, and we do it as we are convicted by conscience and the Spirit of our ungodly deeds. But we don’t camp there!

Repentance through confession sets us free of earthly bondages. But repentance is not for the purpose of a re-justification. You have been justified, having been made 100% righteous. We grow through confession and repentance, but we grow all the more when we stand firm in our identity in Christ Jesus that we are a new man creation, having fully died to the old self, having been fully reborn into the new self that we are in Christ Jesus, having stood before the Judge over all, the gavel hitting the table and these words having been said over you and all the Saints, “Not Guilty!”

Now that we have each gone through this requirement of standing before the Judge over all, through the One Man Jesus, and having now been fully justified by grace through our faith, God descends upon us the beautiful precious gift of the Coat of Righteousness. It covers us. It defines us. It is who we are. It is a gift undeserved, yet necessary. Justification then makes the way for the gift of righteousness.

Being justified fully and having been made righteous in Father’s courts, we stand fully able in the new person self that we now are, by grace through faith! Not having earned a thing. Yet walking boldly yet humbly in our true identity.

For our sake he (Father God) made him (Jesus) to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:21

Jesus became sin for our forgiveness, we received His righteousness for our justification. Our sin became Jesus sin. His righteousness became our righteousness. We are therefore acquitted from all sin, then imparted to us is Godly righteousness as Jesus was acquitted from righteousness and sin was imparted upon Him. By this truth, He became sin for us so that we became justified and righteous for Him!

Lamentation 1:18 and Jeremiah 12:1 indicate that the Lord alone is righteous… ONLY God. Thus only God can impart that which is only of Himself upon us. Because He took it all, we are justified. And if we are justified, we are made righteous.

We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. Romans 6:4-11

And because of him (Father God) you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:30-31


What is Grace?


Grace appears in the Old Testament six times.

Grace, or the Greek word “Charis” appears in the New Testament 148 times in the Greek Lexicon. As it is with Sozo, so also Grace is a manifestation of God born at the cross.

Here is a beautiful definition of the Greek word “Charis”, or grace:

“The merciful kindness by which God exerts His Holy influence upon souls, turning them to Christ, keeping, strengthening, increasing them in faith, knowledge and affection. The spiritual condition of one governed by the power of divine intervention.”

God has always been merciful. But the fullness of Grace was born at the Cross. Grace is not mercy, grace is power. And like the coat of righteousness that God offers us to wear, grace is a free gift for those who believe by faith.

Grace is the very same power that resurrected Christ from the dead. Grace is the very same power that brought each of us from death to life, from our old self to our new self. We have been saved by grace through faith! We have been saved in the power of the cross by faith! We have been Sozo’ed by grace through faith!

We are saved by grace through faith. We are not saved by mercy through faith, even though God is full of mercy. Our salvation is one of Power. The Power of the Blood of the cross!

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Romans 5:1-2

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ-by grace (in His power) you have been saved-and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:4-10

Grace is not mercy.

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

This scripture clearly separates mercy from grace. Contrary to what most theologians think, they are not one in the same.

By grace through faith we can do all things through Christ who empowers us, who strengthens us! What much of the church is missing is the power of God. Therefore because the church does not see God’s supernatural manifesting power, it has rejected any notion of a supernatural God in its midst. The power of God is reduced to the very occasional chance event that because no one can explain it, it must have been a miracle. That is the extent of faith in much of today’s church.

We are then left with arguments that only build up humanistic religion. We hear such thoughts as, “Well, I can only surmise that I’ve been born this way.” “If we haven’t seen it, it must not exist.” “ The power moves of the Holy Spirit were for the purpose of the start of the First Church, they don’t apply to us today. And besides, when’s the last time you’ve ever witnessed a power move of God?”

But these are all arguments within humanism, a form of religion that denies healing, deliverance, restoration, the miraculous and very supernatural power of the cross. It is a form of religion that focuses only on the salvation, but not on the power.

…having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. 2 Timothy 3:5

There is only one way out of religious humanism, namely by grace (in His power) through faith! That is what we are after. The cross, and the power of the cross, which only activates when we choose to believe yet not see. As in all thinks of the Kingdom of God, faith must come first. Only then does grace come, only then does the miraculous occur. Faith first in all things of the Kingdom of God. Faith is like the currency of the Kingdom of Heaven! You’ll never see it, you’ll never get it and you’ll never use it until you pay up!

We’ve all seen the miraculous… namely the greatest power move over all, which is our new life in Christ Jesus. That’s a very great miracle! But that is only the beginning. Thereafter comes the in-reaping of souls, healing of the sick, casting out devils and raising the dead to life literally.

Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. John 14:12

Fully one third of all of Jesus ministry in the four Gospel’s was in healing the sick, casting out demons, cleansing skin diseases and raising the dead. He walked in power and said we would walk in power. So where is the power in today’s church? There is only one reason we don’t see these things in today’s church… we don’t believe it by faith.

How do we overcome these religious lies that we have accepted as truth? The answer is, by grace through faith!

Understanding who we are in our salvation is vital. It points us in the right direction then sends us down this supernatural road of grace by faith. From one encounter to the next, from one wonder to the next, from one glory to the next glory we grow and mature in unity of heart and in the joy of the Holy Spirit and with supernatural weapons of warfare. We succeed when we move in the power that Christ afforded us at the cross!

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Cor 3:17-18

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith for faith (from first to the last), just as it is written: The righteous will live by faith.” Romans 1:17-18

Without these understandings firmly in our hearts and without our minds willingly yoked to our heart, we will be fruitless in our life walk for Jesus sake. We need to know who we are. We need to walk by grace through our faith in all we do. We need to know there is power in what we say and in what we believe, power to either build up by faith, or power to tear down by the lack of faith. This is the cry of the Heavens in this hour. Know who you are and then walk in it!   It’s what Jesus died for you to be.

Encounter With the Spirit


It takes an encounter in the Spirit to understand the value of an encounter with the Spirit. It takes an encounter to understand how much we need ongoing encounters! This is why our call to bring Revival to the church is so vitally important!

Revelation comes within the encounter. Without ongoing encounters with the Holy Spirit, two things happen. We dry up. And we loose The Spirit of revelation knowledge. Kingdom expression of revelation truth disappears.

We are left dry and hungry. Suddenly comes all manner of good sounding arguments from the mind of man, simply because the mind is all we have left to figure things out.

This is why most of today’s church does not understand the Holy Spirit. We fear an encounter with the mysterious. We fear the unknown. We fear letting go of control. We fear letting go of what we understand.

This is why the devil works so hard to convince the church that encounter experiences with the Holy Spirit are out of line. We must always remember that every argument will come against the manifesting works of the Holy Spirit. It is because it is by the Spirit that we grow in maturity and in power to reap a harvest. This we must always remember!


Start of the Church Encounter

The Church did not start with principles, doctrine or theology… It started with an encounter! Namely Pentecost.

Pentecost was not a one time single event for the First Church! Pentecost is an encounter for everyone now and in the future. Kathryn Kuhlman said it so well, “We live in the day of Pentecost!”

As Peter was addressing the crowd who came to witness what was happening on the day of Pentecost, these were his final words:

Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.” And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, “Save yourselves from this crooked generation.” So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls. Acts 2:37-41

Peter was saying, “This is for everyone now and on until Christ comes again.”

The Manifest Presence of the Spirit is an ongoing filling and then refilling! This is the Christian life. Encounter is an ongoing thing!

Ephesians 5:18 in many translations reads, “Stop getting drunk on wine, which leads to wild living, but keep on being filled with the Holy Spirit.”  Intl Std Version and the Complete Jewish Bible. 

The Amplified Classic Bible says this… “but ever be filled and stimulated with the Holy Spirit.”

We are living in the day of Pentecost. As it was in the beginning, after Jesus ascended to Heaven, so it is just as much true today as it was in that day. Here is proof positive that Pentecost was not a one off event, and there are many passages like this within the New Testament. This coming on again of the Holy Spirit was upon both the new believers in the room and upon the same people who were in the Upper Room:

As I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell on them just as on us at the beginning. Acts 11:15

We need the encounter again and again, not just for us, but for all who have yet to witness His encounter. We grow in maturity and in anointing power as we embrace the unknown encounters of the Holy Spirit. All things by GRACE (which is power) through FAITH. I say again:

“…for the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”

Word And Spirit Part Two

In addition to the last post “Word AND Spirit” I would add these thoughts:

For we are the (spiritual) circumcision, who worship by the Spirit of God AND glory in Christ Jesus AND put no confidence in the flesh– – Philippians 3:3

We worship in the Holy Spirit, that is in the Manifesting Presence, both privately and corporately.

We glory in Jesus Christ who is the revealed Word of God.

We place no confidence in the flesh, which is an independent mind will or emotions. This is the way of humility to the lowest point… even death on our cross.

The Spirit AND the Word in a state of full dependence. That is the right way of the Lord.

…and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith- that I may know him (Word) AND the power of his resurrection (Spirit), and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death… Philippians 3:9-10

Word AND Spirit

“If you only have the Word, you are going to dry up…

If you only have the Spirit, you are going to blow up!

But if you have the Word AND the Spirit, you are going to GROW UP.”

Carol Arnott
Toronto Outpouring
Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship

We tend to swing from side to side on this most vital issue. But the truth is clear, we must have both. And I have been saying this clearly from the beginning…

Soaking, intimacy, seeking His Face in worship… this is invaluable. But it does not replace the need for the expression of the revealed Word of God.

The Word of GOD is invaluable. But it does not replace the need for time spent with Him in intimacy.

We must stop swinging back and forth on this issue. We need both… always. But at NO POINT are we to reject one for the sake of the other. That is great error.

Please hear me clearly?

If we suddenly reject the need for intimacy and replace it with the Word and teaching alone, we are going to dry up.

If all we do is to seek the Presence, and take our focus off of the Word, there will be no growth into maturity.

I am a Revivalist with all of my heart. I ADORE the Manifesting Presence of the Holy Spirit. In that beloved place of intimacy, I get volumes of revelation. Not just of who I am in His eyes, but in Father’s heart for His church, and much more than this!

Yet I know that if I take my focus off of His Word, there is a vital aspect of this transference of His knowledge into my heart that goes missing.

Waiting on Him as in Pentecost, worshiping Jesus, the Father and the Spirit privately or corporately, is such a great joy. But while in the Word, there is a private Revival that happens between me and my Father that is equally joyous. How I love Him! How I love the Spirit! How I love the Word!

His truth is this… we MUST have both.


And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart… Ephesians 5:18-19


And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:9-10


But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit AND truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. GOD IS SPIRIT, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:23-24

The Prophetic A Poem

Prophet’s Call


Father sets the prophet who is willing to call.

Willing to die, to sacrifice it all.

To speak forth the word that Father will show.

To stand back and watch as His Body will grow.


Oak trees planted in a swampy bog.

Yesterday’s vision lost in today’s fog.

Rivers shifted long ago,

from where it was, their fresh waters flow.


Religion now formed and maintaining divisions,

clinging to yesterday’s plans and visions.

Results in a blindness to much of His word,

that speak of His healings, miracles, shifting of the Lord.


The mirrors cast a hazy vision,

of imperfect knowledge, God’s decision.

Though we discern some true understanding,

no man gets the glory that He is commanding.


Moving, changing, Rivers shifting.

Vision of its cloudiness now lifting.

Men and women discern fresh vision,

this constant fresh flow of Father’s provision.


Narrowly few these visionary’s numbers,

trust and faith to see such wonders.

Showing wisdom and knowledge to these growing few,

a weighty call to carry forth such a view.


Do equip the Saints with Kindgom discernment.

From heaven above, the word of God’s movement.

Holy call this prophetic function,

to speak forth the plan of God’s fresh new unction.


Imperfect in knowledge His servants discern,

it’s all that we have by which we can learn.

Oh who can know the Father’s direction?

The prophets set in, the Word at His discretion.


But this is the truth and is firmly unchanging,

the word must go forth before His arranging.

Then so shall it be for those who discern.

Hear now the word, our future to learn.


New wine can’t be placed in the old.

Why must this story again be retold?

What is past is now done and now it is gone,

“A new thing I do from this time on!”


Perhaps what is most difficult to take,

is the change that’s required for leaders to make.

For true it is that the prophets declare,

every word that goes forth comes a shift in the air.


Change is not easy for those locked in,

stuck in a place of faithless sin.

Nor is it easy for those,

who carry the weight of yesterdays pros.


But this is the time for God’s acceleration,

of spiritual radical harvest of our nation!

Smashing little boxes of limitations,

rejoining houses of former relations.


Evangelists, pastors, teachers now dying,

willingly crushed, alive, now flying!

Apostles rising, now hand in hand.

Prophets now joined, together they stand!


“It’s a new thing I’m doing, and always will be.

But hear it first, you must, thru these voices from Me.

See, I do nothing without first speaking forth the prophetic word.

So let them go! Let them fly! My plans you have heard!”


Declaring the word now with bold declaration.

Honest in love and in humble submission.

Heard, agreed, the word now going out.

The Kingdom advancing without any doubt.


Stands now the prophet, prepared now the call.

Willing to die, to sacrifice all.

To speak forth the word that Father has shown.

To stand back in joy as His Body has grown.

Word for 2017

A New Foundation

Vision of the Battlefield of Reconciliation

Today, I saw a wonderful vision. I saw a massive grassy field that was to be a battlefield. I saw masses to the left and masses to the right. Enemies, ready to go to war. But then the Holy Spirit fell upon the fields. Leaders from both sides came forth to meet in the center to discuss terms. And in sudden tears they embraced each other. Revelation pouring and pouring out, error being exposed in power, both sides recognizing the error of religion and judgments, of self-righteousness and hatred. They came together in grand repentance and in tears of sadness for years lost, but in tears of great joy for the joy now set before them.

On the left were those of certain denominational Saints. On the right were those of non-denominational Spirit filled Saints. This vision of reconciliation was that of the Body coming together under the weight of revelation of the Spirit poured out. Error being exposed by Love on both sides, with spirits of judgment and fear and anger falling off all around. Both sides in forms of error, now made right in tears of love, confession, repentance and revelation truth. They embraced with these words: “By Grace through faith… By Grace through faith!”

I see lots of religion dying on both sides. Cold places becoming really really hot. Here comes national Revival. And for many of us who have been praying for this, waiting for this for years… here it comes!

2017 is the year of the foundation; foundations destroyed, foundations shifted and foundations restored. Foundations, upon which the Father can now place His Church house… His house with no roof. A roof is like the bars of a jail cell, filtering what God wants to bring down… filtering what the people want to give upward. I see leaders repositioning from the place of “coverage” to the place of the foundation; from “oversight” to the lowest place of servant. I see leaders who willfully chose to become connected to Christ, the Chief Cornerstone of the foundation. They lift the church up upon their backs to the Father and cry out, “This is Your meeting Father, not mine!”

And I see three words… unity, prosperity and Grace, Grace which is power. And I hear the Father saying, “GRACE! GRACE TO IT!”

I’m sensing a real open door for a dramatic turn-around this year, especially in the area of recovery and establishment of purpose and prosperity. A new master foundation is being laid, upon which has always been required to rightly place the “buildings of Kingdom purpose.” As it has been, any building would have been quickly destroyed due to sinking sand, hence no building upon that which was sinking sand. But as of January 20th, the beginnings of a new foundation are to be put in place upon which Father can build many things wonderful. And from which, the truth of the wisdom of right foundation will permeate all around the church. It’s going to be a very good year (years for that matter) for the Body… National foundation and spiritual foundations, reset in love and repentance, resulting in a powerful new release of authority. Both are shifting, even as we speak.

Todays’ Church leaders are going to have their hands full in 2017! And it is going to be wonderful!

In Love!

Why Failed Prayers?

For we Americans, as this four-year Presidential election cycle concludes, this is a critical season to be praying Kingdom prayers that gain Kingdom results. With that in mind come the following concerns.

There is a primary reason why the prayers of many Christians have not been heard. 

It’s not that we don’t pray. That’s not the problem. The problem is from what paradigm that we do pray. It’s all about from what foundational position that we Christians do pray. It’s all about our Christian identity!

Are we praying from the sin conscious old man self, flawed, still focused on sin and under the law? Or… are we praying from our grace conscious new man self, the new man or new woman that we ARE? If we say that we are in Christ Jesus, then we are 100% a new creation; a totally reborn new man/woman who is operating by grace through faith. How serious is this problem of identity!

I dare say the vast majority of those who say they are in Christ Jesus are living in the old man “sin conscious” self. It’s what most church’s have taught for generations.

The reality is that most Christians do not know who they are. We are in an identity crisis that God is clearly revealing in this hour! Just who are we, we who call ourselves Christian?

By faith, we have been given, as a gift, this robe of righteousness. It’s a gift undeserved and free of charge and works, yet we receive it… BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH. We need to see it, receive it, and then choose to put this robe on and wear it! Read carefully Romans 1-8!

As we put on this robe of righteousness by choice, this shield of faith, we exchange our old sin laden self for the new man self! It’s a baptism! We’ve put off the old self and put on the new self as a free gift through Christ Jesus! And once we’ve done so, we give no room for the old man self to return by the power of grace through faith, lest Christ has died for nothing!

This new man identity, it defines who we are. We are no longer in sin. Sin no longer is my identity! We are NOT sinners saved through grace. We WERE sinners, now fully a new creation, having been born totally anew into the new man/woman that we now are. I’m no longer in need of love as I were, I now AM love as He has now made me to be.

If we operate in the old man self, we remain under the law of sin and death, the price of which is wrath. If we operate by grace through faith in the new person that we are, we can therefore do all things through Christ who strengthens us.

Whatever it is that you believe, you empower. Whatever it is that you disbelieve, you de-power.

The prayers from the old man self are totally ineffectual, because they are spoken from a defeated position. We pray from a place of need. That’s NOT who we are. But as we pray from this new man place of total victory, our prayers connect with His power! And that IS who we are!

The prayers that come from the new man self are effectual indeed, because they come from the place of total victory. We therefore pray in the Spirit knowing that He hears our every word, because we pray by grace through faith! It’s a totally different paradigm!

As to the short-term future, we MUST realize who we are by grace through faith, we must believe it, declare it and live it! Then our prayers are not out of need, fear, anger, judgment, and the like. Then our prayers are out of the lovers that we ARE… by grace through faith, knowing that we are being heard, knowing that what we are asking is in and by His heart.

In today’s church, the failings of our prayers are mostly because the vast majority of us are operating in the old man self. This MUST change. And such a need for change has been spoken from the Heavens. Now is the time to know who we are, to walk in who we are, and to pray out of who we ARE! Then mountains WILL move, the sick made well and the course of our nation will change.

Let me say this again: Whatever you believe, you empower. Whatever it is that you disbelieve, you de-power! Thus, if you are living in your powerless old man self, not knowing or believing the new man/woman that you are, you are DE-POWERING your prayers.

Which are you?

Lovingly submitted,

T Scott Morton

If these words are stirring in your heart, go to YouTube and type in this name: “Dan Mohler.” This Apostle is speaking these truths wonderfully! I encourage you with all my heart, go there, and listen to Kingdom truth. Failed
