Wake Up the Wonder


Hello People! 

Did ya miss me? lol just kiddin’ 😀

I have a part 2 to my previous post regarding God’s PA review, but I won’t share it on here yet until I’ve ministered this message to my church this Friday. I feel like I can’t release the message just yet. You can wait right? 🙂

I thank the Holy Spirit for giving me a timely message. When I do share it this Friday, I pray that it may minister to somebody’s spirit. I’m in a place where God keeps revealing so many new messages that I need to record everything so that I don’t forget. I welcome questions and will try to answer them to the best of my ability. When God is speaking to you, have a notebook, or tablet or laptop to record these things. Save every detail that you remember so that you can continue to fine tune your ears to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to you the Church.

I entitled this post after Elevation Worship’s cd title Wake Up the Wonder (can you tell I’m still on this Elevation Worship tip…I just love them! lol 🙂 ) because that is the main message. Wake up the wonder inside of you. This is the mystery that needs to be revealed to the World, that you have CHRIST in you, the hope of glory. You are the miracle that you seek, you are the answer to your own problem, and you are the answer that the world seeks. You are a revival starter. It all begins with you, so stop looking around when you should be looking in the mirror and seeing that the answer already arrived, the answer is YOU, Amen! 😀


To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.


So in the mean time I want to post a song by Elevation Worship called The King Among Us.  

 

Worship: Send the Rain


Hi Everybody!

I just love this song right about now by William McDowell. It’s called Send the Rain. It isn’t easy to wait on the Lord but as it says in the Bible, those that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength and shall mount up like Eagles. You will not be weary so keep on praying, keep on sowing and keep crying for Heaven to Send the Rain. It’s easy to give up when things are rough, but the only way to renew your strength is by waiting on the Lord. Waiting is never easy for waiting in and of itself is a test of endurance. Endurance requires faith and those that wait shall be blessed of the Lord.


But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.

[ God Will Be Gracious ] Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you; And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed are all those who wait for Him.


For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the Lord, They shall inherit the earth.


May this song bless your spirit today just as it has mine. 😀

Spirit Break Out


Hi Everybody!

It’s time to give God the Highest Praise!!!!!!

 Yesterday I had the honor of going to the Jesus Culture and Kim Walker concert and I can tell you it was phenomenal! I loved it and this song was sung at the concert that I felt would be a great worship song to bless your spirit today. It’s called Spirit Break Out. It’s time to give God high Glory and high Praise. I believe Revival is in our now season. I believe for it and I receive it for all those that have been praying for it. God is bringing His Kingdom to be made manifest in our lives this year through Restoration, Redemption & Revival!

John 4:23

But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.
John 16:13

However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

Hear this song today and may it bless your Spirit today.  God bless y’all! 😀

Casting the Net – Modern Day Evangelism


Hi Everbody!

Happy Monday!

I had a phenomenal weekend as I had attended a Revive Canada conference with Evangelist Shyju Mathew and let me tell you, there was soo much downpoured into my spirit about revival that although I’ve been praying for it to come here in Canada, I’m more than convinced that it is already in operation. I believe that God is setting the stage as we speak to break forth into the type of Revival that will become the largest in our lifetime and if you come from another nation…I just want you to know that this Revival I’m talking about isn’t just for Canada…it’s going to be global. That is what I’m believing for and I can already see it happening. I would like to say more, but I must remain silent and let the Lord do His work. There is soo much more in store that I’m currently excited and at the same time fearful for those not prepared for what will take place.

Setting that aside I went to church yesterday and my Pastor was talking about Evangelism in her sermon and how there is a gap in the church for this area. I cannot agree more with her on that one. In fact, the night after the Revive Canada conference the Holy Spirit had told me the same exact thing. Talk about confirmation. Evangelism in North America seems to have dwindled as of late because people are being swayed between wavering opinions with the enemies agenda to promote COMPROMISE. 

How long must the Church compromise and waver between two opinions?

1 Kings 18:21
And Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word.

I remember as I listened to my Pastor preach as she mentioned how Jesus told his disciples in

Matthew 4:19
Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

The Holy Spirit spoke to me during the service and said…”Evangelism is just like Casting a net, however, not many people like what they catch”, I thought…WHOA…ain’t that the truth!

via sfodan.wordpress.com/

We know that God can make us fishers of men and yet we don’t always seem to like what we catch in terms of  looking at what’s caught in your net. Sometimes we expect to capture the most impressive and responsive individual to the Word which I liken to favourable big fish…but it’s the small fry fish that we typically get caught in our nets most of the time that seem to always be the first ones cast away when it comes to evangelism. Why is that the case?

I see these type of cast-away fish as those that are easily overlooked, easily ostracized, easily misjudged by prejudicial eyes which tend to be the ones that look irregular to the big fish that we as Christians seem to aim for. Some of these fish maybe deformed, or be of a different colour, creed, family, social economic status, some may even look like EMOs, Punk Rockers, Satanists, Witches, Occult users, homosexuals, prostitutes, adulterers, those that have mental disorders and some maybe of various religions including the atheists. These types of fish from what I’ve seen, seem very unappealing to us in regards to spreading the gospel of Truth…but these are the same people that God wants us to capture the most. They may seem unresponsive at first, but these are the ones that God will use for REVIVAL. This is what I’m sensing strongly in my spirit right now.

The Holy Spirit also posed an uncomfortable question to me which I will share with you. He asked me, “How far are you willing to cast your net?”.  Has the Holy Spirit ever asked you that kind of question?

He revealed to me that although I’ve captured some through my blog, He seems to be implying to me that I can do better than this. I was incredibly Challenged that I didn’t answer His question right away….because obviously, I was assessing the price.

via flickriver.com

 Dear Lord….I am feeling the fear of God rise each time I’m challenged by God’s mandate. It was a fearful question that I found I was not so readily available to answer right away, surprise surprise *gulp*. I’m sensing that I’ve got to prepare myself to be pushed in the uncomfortable zone to see this manifest through. My whole mind feels like it’s just trembling thinking about it. I won’t claim to be welcoming this mandate with open arms…because sometimes…it’s about pushing the bar and walking right into destiny. I thought about it and struggled with the answer…in fact I found myself wrestling with myself with the answer; however, I’d like to be brave and claim by faith here on this blog with much fear and trembling *gulp*, “As far as you want me to, Lord.”

As soon as I answered the Holy Spirit’s question…I began to see visions….and I’m just not looking forward to the rest to tell you the truth and yet with the encouragement of a friend, she tells me that “I am groomed for spiritual warfare”. *sigh*….I certainly hope so *gulp*.

Has anybody ever felt Challenged by the Lord like this???? What did you do? How did  you answer?

I am one that doesn’t answer too rashly or too quickly when the Holy Spirit asks me a question….I have a tendency to assess the risks first and I always seem to look before I leap in faith lol. I guess it’s time to just Leap :).

prejudiced people

The Holy Spirit began to tell me and show me of what I’ve been able to accomplish with just my blog. Of course I do more than just blog about my faith…but this is just an example.

Some people may not know this, but ever since I’ve started to blog about my faith a year ago, I’d get private emails from readers who have told me that their faith has been revitalized, that they feel like after reading some of my posts they feel a lot stronger in their walk, some have even sought information about spiritual warfare, some have seen answers to their problems and others are just hungry to hear more on certain topics that I’ve posted which has given me an indication that social media is one powerful evangelistic tool. Of course you get the occasional hate mail…but that sort of goes without saying when you speak the truth.

One person I remember contacting me who wishes to remain anonymous works for the UN and has seen amazing breakthroughs in their workplace with the spiritual warfare posts I had posted, with one of them in particularly dealing with Hamans in the workplace and other such material. Some people contact me for material that they can read and where they can buy it, etc etc. And many people from my blog come from across the globe. In fact, more the 52, 000 people have viewed this blog according to my flag stats and these people come from 171 different countries! I mean…I haven’t even blogged for that long and even though the blog was open nearly 2 years ago, I finally got active last year in October and it’s only been a year since I’ve been writing regularly and yet so many people’s lives have changed in such a short period of time via Wpress.

If God can attract more than 52,000 people to one blog in one year…What say you in ten years? What say you with thousands of other Christians blogging????

A social media revival is indeed possible, People!

What I am trying to imply here is that we cannot underestimate the power of social media to bring about Revival. I think we have to look outside the box. Television will always be an effective form of evangelism, but there are other effective tools out there to bring people to one place with the gospel message and that is definitely social media. Social media is even more effective than magazines these days and with the use of the internet, anything is possible.

What I’m trying to say here is that we don’t have to over complicate Evangelism. We can cast our nets further than we’ve ever imagined before through social media since it is one place that seems to have mobilized the whole world to be gathered in one place through cyberspace.

You just don’t know who God will use to make a difference.

I remember back in the day (10 years ago) when my sister and I went out with a couple of friends of my mother from the UK to hand out tracts in the street in a popularly known dangerous neighborhood and it was an exercise that I kind of cringed at because honestly…I have never been moved by that form of evangelism personally in regards to myself and I had never done street evangelism before either. “Who says that street evangelism is fun?” is probably the most passionate about it…but I knew even in my Christian self…it did not appeal to me one single bit no matter how much I loved the Lord. I’m just being honest here folks. The idea of talking to strangers was one thing…but in a risky area…that did not appeal to me at all… Yes, I have to admit..it was not my cuppa tea, but I learned a few things during this exercise.

When I was with these two ladies from the UK who were obviously pros at this street evangelism thing,  it was interesting to walk through and try it out and give this thing a whirl. We did get a few jokers out there who just accepted the tracts hoping to get a phone number at the end which kind of got on my nerves, but eventually my sister and I got the opportunity to evangelize to a Satanist. Yep, in all that hallabaloo, we encountered those that took the tracts without much conversation, some listened with an open ear and thanked us and some were mere jokers until we landed on a Satanist. A fish we did not expect to encounter in this exercise.

My sister and I did not expect that we’d actually encounter one at all since it seemed that the obvious target in the area we were in were “youth at risk”. Yes, there were a few brothas that just took the tract wanting my phone number…which also is another reason I was not interested in street evangelism, however, when we spoke to the satanist, I thought, “Wow! Now here is a real fish that I’d like to get saved!” Mind you I was an immature babe in Christ when this event happened so this is just a recollection of what happened.

The person thought that by confessing he was a satanist that we’d back off in prejudice and fear because he kind of smirked when he told us he was a Satanist…Much to his surprise, I was actually excited and forthcoming…because I was thinking “Here we go…finally someone worth it!” because I felt up for the challenge. Yes, a few people where just playas…not really serious about listening to the gospel of truth… only interested in a date which greatly discouraged me from continuing this type of evangelism after 2 hours of it on the first day…(I shake my head at these). The Satanist was surprised that we were not afraid of him and was completely in awe of how calm and welcoming we were…in fact he must have thought I was crazy between my sister and I, because I was really excited to tell him about Jesus. At first he wasn’t very forthcoming in taking the tract we had to offer, but when we talked to him about the love of our Lord Jesus, and noticed how passionate we were about talking about Jesus without judging him on his appearance or status quo, he became responsive. He even thanked us for sharing the message with him. The whole day seemed worth it to me after we talked to one of the easily ostracized fish in our day. I believe there is a party in heaven for each one that receives the gospel of truth and this was the method of evangelism I was doing when I was a babe in Christ 10 years ago.

I look back at this and think of it as a very fond memory that is bringing me back to where I am now in my walk. I question myself, Am I still as passionate as I was before? I know in my heart I’m passionate about the gospel of truth, hence the blog, but I must confess that I think what I am battling right now is Fear brought upon by over-thinking the whole persecution complex. I went through a round of it when I was a youth leader in my church that I realize what I experienced has affected me more than I realized…but God is saying, “Get over it, it’s not going to be the last time either”. UGHHHHHHHHH! well…can’t argue with the Almighty now can I?

Well, in the end I have to get over myself if the target is for the cast-away fish. I think that the message today is that as Christians, we love aiming for responsive fish to the gospel and get easily satisfied by those that willingly come to the Lord with less effort when the true Catch that God is aiming for is for the easily cast-away fish. These fish are actually easy to catch but we cast them away so easily because of prejudice.

I think that we have to re-think Evangelism and analyze who we catch when we Cast our nets and also consider that we maybe guilty in some areas of casting away fish that so truly need to hear the Word by so easily giving up on them after experiencing their initial rejection of the Truth. I’m not saying become aggressive and stalk people with the gospel, all I’m just saying is that our approach should be one that is loving and kind, appealing to those that are easily overlooked that tend to be the ones who feel ostracized by Christians who approach them with prejudice rather than with compassion. We cannot afford to speak about the gospel of truth with prejudicial hearts and condemning spirits. That will not appeal to them at all. Empathy and Honesty wrapped with Compassion will work better to reach the lost rather than being perceived as a bible-thumping Christian, Amen.

What do y’all think? Do you agree or disagree? I’d like to know your opinions.

Have a blessed day everybody!

The REDEMPTION PACKAGE: Jesus came to REVERSE the CURSE!


Hi Everybody!

At this time I feel in my spirit that I just need to give you a Word of GOOD NEWS! Jesus REVERSED EVERY CURSE AT THE CROSS  through His Blood!!!!!

“Sherline….what in the world are you talking about girl???” you must be wondering.

I believe that this is what the Spirit of the Lord wants people to know at this time.

At the Cross, Our Lord Jesus Christ, reversed so many curses and I believe HE wants His Children to know the FULL REDEMPTION PACKAGE so I’m going to name a few things here:

1. He Took our Dis-grace and gave us His-Grace (John 1:17)

2. He took our Ignorance and gave us Knowledge of who we are in Christ (Colossians 1:27).

3. He took our Shame and clothed us with Righteousness (Isaiah 61:10)

5. He took our Hate and gave us LOVE in return (John 3:16)

6. He took our Chains and gave us Keys to our FREEDOM (John 8:36)

7. He took our Sicknesses and by His Stripes we are HEALED (Isaiah 53:5; 1 Peter 2:24)

8. He conquered death and gave us Life everlasting (1 Corinthians 15:55;John 3:16)

9. He took our divorce papers and claimed us as His BRIDE (Revelation 21:9 ; Revelation 21:2)

10. He took our tears and gave us FULLNESS of JOY (Psalm 16:11)

11. He took our Pain and Gave us Relief through DELIVERANCE (Jeremiah 17:14; Joel 2:32

12. He took our Sin and gave us FORGIVENESS (1 John 2:12)

13. He took our Pauper status and gave us a Crown as SONS OF GOD (Hosea 1:10; Matthew 5:9; Luke 20:36; Romans 8:14)

14. He took our broken covenant and replaced it with a NEW ONE (Hebrews 9:15)

15. He took our old Creation and MADE US NEW CREATIONS (2 Corinthians 5:17)

16. He tore the Veil that separated us from our Father by a curtain and allowed us access to the throne room of God who is our Heavenly FATHER by what He did at Calvary (Matthew 27:51; Mark 15:38; Luke 23:45)

17. He took our Dis-unity from the Father and gave us UNITY in HIM by providing us the Helper who is the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:3; Ephesians 4:13 ; 1 Corinthians 12:12 ;Psalm 133:1)

18. He RESTORES what was destroyed in the Garden of EDEN with the New COVENANT in his BLOOD (Matthew 26:28)

19. HE claims back the TERRITORY that we forsook in the GARDEN of EDEN and Claims it back for the SONS OF GOD (Revelation 11:15).

20. He takes the AUTHORITY of the ENEMY and GIVES IT BACK TO  the SONS OF GOD (Luke 10:19)

21. He takes all the TORMENT we suffered and gives us PEACE (John 14:27)

22. He takes all that the DEVIL stole from us and GIVES it back to us in full measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over! (Luke 6:38)

23. He took our UNBELIEF and gave us FAITH! (1 Corinthians 11:25)

24. He took all the Lies of the Devil and blessed us with the TRUTH (John 8:32; John 16:13)

25. He took our Lost selves and MADE A WAY OUT OF NO WAY for us (John 14:6).

26. He took the Darkness and gave us to be LIGHTS of the WORLD (Matthew 5:16).

27. HE took our weaknesses and gave us STRENGTH (2 Corinthians 12:10Joel 3:10;Ephesians 6:10

28. He took our poverty and says we can be RICH! (Deuteronomy 15:4)

29. We were Vulnerable to the Devil’s schemes but God blessed us with the Full ARMOR OF GOD to overcome all the Devil’s Schemes (Ephesians 6:11; Ephesians 6:13; Ephesians 6)

30. We are no longer Subdued by the World because we are OVERCOMERS in JESUS’ NAME! (John 16:33; 1 John 4:4)

31. He turned our Impossible to Possible  (Matthew 19:26).

People there are so many curses I could name here that have been REVERSED by the Blood of JESUS and I just want to tell you that we have many reasons to GIVE HIM PRAISE!!!!! JESUS IS KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS AMEN!!!!!

I Believe that at this time that GOD IS UP TO SOMETHING BIG people during this time of Easter/Passover/Lent. I Believe that when we think of How Jesus heals us it’s not only the Physical that He’s concerned about, it’s also the Spiritual side of us as well. He wants us to be FULLY RESTORED IN HIM by bringing our SOULS, SPIRITS and BODY in complete ALIGNMENT to HIS WORD.

I Believe that at this precious time Jesus is saying:

“I WILL HEAL and DELIVER the spiritually Blind so that they can see GOD (Jesus),

I WILL HEAL and DELIVER the spiritually Deaf so that they can HEAR GOD (the prophetic Voice of God);

and 

I WILL HEAL AND DELIVER the spiritually Lame so that they can WALK IN THE SPIRIT (in full operation of the gifts of the HOLY SPIRIT)”

Sounds like the voice of REVIVAL TO ME!!!!!!! HALLELUJAH! I know this sounds very bold and kind of radical for me to say…but I cannot ignore what is stirring up in my spirit. God is in the RESTORATION PROCESS in this year of 2012 the year of DIVINE GOVERNMENT. SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD, TAKE YOUR RIGHTFUL PLACES THIS YEAR!!!!!!!

The verses that just came into my spirit as I was writing up this post  come from both the Old Testament and the NEW Testament. God spoke it before and He is saying that HE will complete HIS WORD! 

Joel 2:28
[ God’s Spirit Poured Out ] “And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions.

Acts 2:17
And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.

Revival of God’s Image in Us – The Breath of Life


via mtrevival.com

Hello Everybody!

Today my meditation comes with the feeling of wanting to see a MODERN DAY REVIVAL! I’ve been thinking about it for a while but when was the last revival apart from the Azusa Street Revival that was massive in its day in April 16, 1906 where there were workings of miracles, massive reception of the gifts of the HOLY SPIRIT? I want to see REVIVALS break out on a Global Scale. I know what I’m saying sounds ridiculous and probably dangerous but I want to see Massive Revivals not on a Nationwide scale but on a Global Scale. Can you imagine many Churches all having a Revival in the same Year? I can only say Faith can take us to such an amazing Vision so I’m speaking out by Faith in the Blogosphere for such a thing to Manifest itself. I want to see JOEL 2:28-29 in action people! Especially in the West where we have drowned out the Sound of the Divine Alarm, Make Ye Straight The Way of The LORD! Revivals shouldn’t be something we merely read in History books, I want to see these things take place in my lifetime but on a Grand Scale. This Year of Divine Government, we should pray and declare for REVIVAL on a Global Scale. I know that my blog has an international audience so for those reading, Start Praying for Revival in your Countries and Watch GOD MOVE. When a church becomes One in Mind, One in Spirit and One to Worship the Only God, you’ll be amazed at how the Spirit of the Lord will move.

Remember how God made Man and Woman in His own image and likeness in the book of Genesis 1:27 – So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.  The name Adam is Hebrew for “Man”; or “Mankind” so literally Adam was called Man. Adam was just a body that would have remained an empty shell until God’s breath of life came into that shell indwelling in him & her and it is that life that he & she became Sons of God formed in His Image and likeness. He and she are always referred to as the “first Adam” whereas Jesus is referred to as the “last Adam” in 1 Corinthians 15:45 (NIV) – So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being“; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.

It is Interesting to note the two distinctions:

1.) One being that the “First Man” was just a “living being” meaning that he and she were a “living being” with the breath of God’s life in him/her.

2.) The second being that the “Last Man” is Christ who was and is a “Life-giving spirit” in the form of a man.

God is the one who breathed life into Adam and therefore is the “GIVER OF LIFE”, then it stands to reason that the first Adam was not able to breathe life into another because only God could do that.

When both Adam and Eve sinned by listening to the Devil and defying one commandment to not eat of the Fruit of good and evil in the Garden of Eden, their state of God breathed Life started to die at that moment because what was in them was the Holy Spirit. Sin caused spiritual death and if you read through the books from the genealogy of Abraham going forward, you will notice that the number of years that man could live significantly decreased in that we once were able to live for hundreds of years in age because the breath of life which is from God is an Eternal kind of breath. If you look at our current life expectancy to this day, you can see that it is a now only a “miracle” if many of us can live to the age of 100. This is the consequence of all of us living in a state of fallen Grace.

Romans 3:23
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

When Jesus Christ came, it was only then that God was able to give life back into man as a Man on Earth to reinstate the original design which was God in Us through the Holy Spirit. This is evidence of God with us and dwelling among us in the New testament, but the buck doesn’t stop there folks! An amazing thing happens in the book of John after Jesus resurrects from the Dead. He meets His Disciples and then Breathes on ALL of them that were present (save Thomas) and commissions them to be APOSTLES! Did you catch that?  I said, HE BREATHES on the DISCIPLES and they are commissioned as APOSTLES! God’s BREATH OF LIFE yet again in action. The disciples had already received the HOLY SPIRIT prior to the upper room experience that they had in ACTS 2. The Acts 2 experience was the activation of the GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

John 20:19-23

The Apostles Commissioned

19 Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled,[c] for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.

21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”

There are two separate events here folks.

1) The receiving of the Holy Spirit in the book of John breathed onto them by Jesus, and then

2) The activation of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit in the book of Acts.

wow…I feel like I’m preaching but I think you understand my point right. This is such a sweet revelation.

The disciples became SONS OF GOD at that moment. HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We need to understand these two phenomenons so that you understand how we are the SONS of GOD on Earth after we are saved (born again), baptized, and receive the Gifts of the HOLY SPIRIT. It is mandatory that we operate in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, we need to be ignited to operate in the fullness of our callings as Sons of God, the question is…Do people even recognize the importance of the Holy Spirit in their life?

Are you walking in the Spirit as a Christian or are you still acting like a Christian walking like a dead man by ignoring the Holy Spirit dwelling inside of you the Hope of Glory?

What are we doing to quench the operation of the Holy Spirit in our lives?

When we grieve the Holy Spirit, we cannot function with the authority and inheritance as Sons of God, because clearly, you ABSOLUTELY need the HOLY SPIRIT to operate as a Son of God and you also must pursue the gifts of the Holy Spirit to function in the fullness of that call.

So my last Question is:

Ask yourself today, are you walking in the Spirit that is ETERNAL or are you walking in the FLESH that will soon pass away?

Wow, so friends, lets start believing in this A NEW WAVE of GODS BREATH on us so that we can be SONS OF GOD in this YEAR of 2012 – YEAR OF DIVINE GOVERNMENT. I want to see revival!!!!!!!!!! Can I get an AMEN!

Scriptures to Meditate

JOEL 2:28-29

God’s Spirit Poured Out

28 “And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
29 And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

That You May Believe

30 And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.

Psalm 150:6
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD!
