Source: https://ift.tt/2w5N3f4 Today: [Acts 25:] Paul Appeals to Caesar and Meets King Agrippa: After Paul is held for trial before Governor Felix he then falls victim to the consequence of regime change as Festus comes to power in Felix place. Festus attempts to deliver Paul to the Jews, but Paul appeals to Caesar.

When we read these things it should give us pause to reflect on exuberant exclamations about the return of the “days of … (click link or title to continue)

The Father Says Today: August 22nd, 2018

The Father says today, when the pain of staying is greater than the pain of leaving – it is time for you to go. I place no premium on suffering, says the Father, in spite of the protestations of the uninformed otherwise. The cost of Calvary was paid in full to alleviate pain, not to bring pain in your life. I came that you might have life and life more abundantly. When circumstances and situations fall outside that descriptor, it is time to get My mind on what is going on and what your choices should be in the interim … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – Acts 24:  Proclaiming the Kingdom in the Midst of Chaos

Source: https://ift.tt/2LeRvwO Today: [Acts 24] Proclaiming the Kingdom in the Midst of Chaos: In Caesaria Paul is bound over for trial and Ananias the High Priest comes before Governor Felix to accuse him. Paul makes his defense and as a result, is given liberty under Roman guard and an opportunity to share Jesus in private with the Roman ruler and his wife. In this, we learn that the opportunities to share the gospel of the kingdom come in times that we may find ourselves in defense of our lives and freedom.

The Father Says Today: August 21st, 2018

The Father says today, you do not need to bombard heaven with your prayers. What makes you think that heaven needs bombarding? You are not My enemy. Your prayers are not weapons against the gates of heaven, they are weapons against the gates of hell. Those who originated that concept and those who propagate it are grossly in error regarding My character toward you and My favor toward you. Heaven’s portals are always open. The heavens are always open. As the veil on earth was rent 2000 years ago into the Holy of Holies, so the gates and portals of … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – Acts 23:  Maintaining Sustaining Grace Under Maximum Pressure

Source: https://ift.tt/2MFhCS0 [Acts 23] Maintaining Sustaining Grace Under Maximum Pressure: In Acts 23 Paul fights for his life torn between Roman oppressors and Jewish persecutors. What will you personally do when you are under this kind of pressure? From the example of Paul, we find the uncommon grace God gives to everyone dealing with the consequences of their actions in personal situations. [Acts 23:1-18 KJV] 1 And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day. 2 And the high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by him … (click link or title to continue)

The Father Says Today: August 20th, 2018

The Father says today, stop waiting for something to happen and go out and make something happen. I didn’t tell My disciples to put down roots after the day of Pentecost and wait for the kingdom to come. I sent them out to compel the world and to disciple nations. Have you discipled a nation by your testimony? You are more than the sum total of your parts. You have influence. You are My chosen instrument. I said I would put you on display for My glory. Now what are you going to do to make yourself available for the … (click link or title to continue)

The Father Says Today: August 19th, 2018

The Father says today, I will give you credibility with your tribe when you find your tribe. What is the point of trying to please people who are not interested in listening to what you are saying? Your message is your ministry – stop throwing pearls before swine. Get out of that swineherd and seek out those who will find every word coming out of your mouth to be life and breath. Just because someone left a door ajar is not the same as an open door. It is time to stop drifting through life and move with the intentionality … (click link or title to continue)

The Father Says Today: August 18th, 2018

The Father says today, we have changed things, haven’t we? You wonder at times whether or not you are in My perfect plan beloved but know this: It is more critical for you to be in My presence than to be in My will. You make decisions every day that often fall outside the parameters of My highest and best choice for you. Nonetheless, My Spirit lingers with you to guide and to encourage you back onto the higher path that leads to greatest blessing. There are those who insist that My hand stands poised to smite those who divert … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – Acts 22:  Paul Argues with God

Source: https://ift.tt/2PjGVIb Today: [Acts22:] Paul Argues with God: In Acts 22 Paul is in custody in Jerusalem, having incited a riot by his presence there. The mob is venomous and uncontrolled in their rage as Paul recounts in his own words the fact that the same voice that spoke to him on the road to Damascus had warned him of how things would unfold once he arrives in Jerusalem. For us, this is a valuable lesson emphasizing for us the need to hear and to heed God’s voice in our own lives.
