June 2018 - Revelation Knowledge

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.  Ephesians 1:17-23

 

This prayer for revelation knowledge affects the eyes of your heart. It changes the way you see everything because the Holy Spirit opens the door to understanding the Word of God and the realm of the Spirit. The very moment light or revelation knowledge comes, faith is present. Revelation knowledge will always capture your imagination.

Some of the most prevalent crimes in this day and age involve breaking into computer systems. This is known as “hacking.” However, there is a system which can never be hacked. It is God’s Kingdom system. Once you are born again, you are granted access into the Spirit realm where you can download divine secrets. Regarding kingdom secrets Jesus said in Luke 10:21, “Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.” Man does not discover God. He reveals Himself. We know God through revelation knowledge.

Paul was not at a disadvantage because he never personally met Jesus in His earthly ministry, but Paul understood revelation knowledge and knew the thoughts of Jesus better than the disciples. In the same way, through revelation knowledge you can know Him better today than those who walked with Him on the earth. Revelation knowledge takes you past the regional, historical, geographical, and theological knowledge of God and brings you into the inspirational.  All scripture is God-breathed and inspired by God. It is personal and will reveal your true identity and purpose. 

For example, when Jesus went to the temple, He found the place in Isaiah 61, where it was written about Him and said, “This is me! Today this scripture is talking about me.”  John the Baptist found himself in Isaiah 40 through revelation knowledge. When Jesus asked Peter who He was, Peter had a flash of revelation and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Then Jesus told Peter that flesh and blood had not revealed it unto him, but His Father. At that moment, Peter got his identity and calling from Jesus: “Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it,” (Matthew 16:17-18).

Just as Peter found his identity from Jesus, you can also find yourself in the Word today. He’ll talk to you right there in your house. You used to read the Bible to go to sleep. Now you read it and you can’t go to sleep! “He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to hear as the learned,” (Isaiah 50:4). The Holy Spirit takes you to the “video department” of the Word.  He speaks to you, giving you dreams and visions, affecting your eyes, giving you revelation that captures your imagination. Revelation knowledge is progressive.  It comes alive, just like He wrote it 3,000 years ago for you today.

Living by faith is really living by revelation knowledge. Every advance in faith is an advance in revelation. Revelation knowledge will literally change your identity, like it did for Gideon (Judges 6). God calls you things there’s no evidence that they exist. Yet, when they’re real on the inside—there’s nothing in the world that can stop it from showing up on the outside.  The power of His Word is all you need.

The Word is progressive, continuous, and endless. The Holy Spirit unlocks your understanding and brings great joy. Information alone puffs you up, but revelation from God brings radical change and results.  You will experience brand new revelation as you ask for the three things God wants us to know in the Ephesians 1 prayer:  His calling, His inheritance, and His power

Jesus grew in wisdom and knowledge by studying the scriptures (Luke 2). At age twelve, His parents found Him in the temple, wiser than the doctors of the law. It is said that David was inspired by the Holy Spirit to write the wisdom found in Proverbs for his son, Solomon, to live successfully.  Some scholars say, what was written in the Proverbs was actually wisdom from God, the Father for His Son, Jesus to have while He was on the earth.  Like Christ, we must find ourselves in the scriptures and grow in revelation knowledge.

“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust,” (2 Peter 1:3-4).  This is the way we can know our calling, live victoriously and reach our destiny through the spirit of wisdom and revelation.

If you want to know MORE, possess MORE fire of revelation, and walk in MORE of God’s power, you need these inspired messages from our BRAND NEW cd set, Revelation Knowledge: Breaking Barriers.” For an offering of $25, we will send you the CDs and our book, Revolutionary Revelation. Your partnership in prayer and giving enables this liberating message to transform more lives around the world. We declare to you, our partners that: “My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus!”

April 2018 - Get Out of the Ruts You've Been Stuck In

GET OUT OF THE RUTS YOU’VE BEEN STUCK IN

Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands.
-Isaiah 43:18-19 (Message)

There was a warning sign on a remote and muddy road marked by deep ruts that said, “Be careful of the ruts you get in because you could be stuck in them for the next 60 miles.” That is a long time to be stuck!  It has been proven that we have similar ruts in our brains from repeated ways of thinking. But there is a way to get out of those ruts we have been stuck in. And that is through sanctification.

Sanctification happens when we daily “reckon” on the reality of our union with Christ. The word reckon is an accounting term meaning to record the facts.  It is daily and continually offering every faculty—including our minds—continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit. We are transformed by the renewing of our minds (Eph. 4:23).

The Jerusalem Bible says in Ephesians 4:23 our mind must undergo a spiritual revolution. The first thing that takes place in a revolution is a complete takeover of communication. Philemon 6 says when we acknowledge every good thing which is in us in Christ, our faith will become effective and contagious.  People around us will see a difference. They will catch our faith.

 

YOU CAN HAVE A FRESH MENTAL ATTITUDE

God wants to do a work in your mind and imagination. Ephesians 4:24 (AMP) says, “Be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude].” Hebrews 10:16 follows this thought: “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, said the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them.” The Amplified Bible says, “on their mind will I inscribe them (producing an inward change).”

This new life in Christ comes with a new way of thinking which brings a totally new lifestyle. What you struggled with in your past will be no more. 

The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.  But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies...he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.
-Nahum 1:8–9

Sin and affliction have come to an end! That enemy will never come back.

So if anyone becomes united to Christ, he is a fresh Creation; the original conditions have passed away; mark! they have been replaced by new conditions.
-2 Corinthians 5:17 (Wade)

...he becomes a new person altogether—the past is finished and gone, everything has become fresh and new.
-Phillips

The power of the cross brings old things to an end. God has a new plan for your life! It is a dawning of a new day! The accuser must be silent. The enemies of fear, anxiety, shame, and guilt will never rise and come back to haunt you. You’ve put your trust in the blood of Jesus, you’re sanctifying yourself, and God is making a way where there was no way. Get ready for the new!

 

THE MESSAGE AND WORLD MISSIONS

In March, we concluded our annual Supernatural Leadership Conference. This year’s theme was “The New: Experiencing Breakthrough on Every Level.” It was a tremendous time of practical Bible-based instruction and a time of refreshing through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. There were hundreds of ministers in attendance (pastors, evangelists, teachers, missionaries and leaders) who were strengthened and equipped.

This month’s offer features our BRAND NEW booklet and 3 CD set called, “The New: Experiencing Breakthrough on Every Level.” We believe these materials will encourage you to expect a breakthrough as you obey God’s call in 2018.

We are anticipating a powerful impact being made in our three upcoming mission trips.  In April, we’ll return to Mexico City.  Then in May we are excited to be in Kiev, Ukraine and Nairobi, Kenya!  Your partnership in prayer and financial support will enable us to effectively teach pastors and leaders who come from all these regions. Believe with us for an outpouring from Heaven.

Most of all, we bless you, our partners, with these words from Philippians 4:18,19 (GW):  "Your gifts are a soothing aroma, a sacrifice that God accepts and with which he is pleased.  My God will richly fill your every need in a glorious way through Christ Jesus."

In Christ,
Mark and Trina
