Morning Light – April 14th, 2017 – Isaiah 65:  Is the Church God’s Second Choice?

Morning Light – Isaiah 65 Today: [Isaiah 65] Is the Church God’s Second Choice? In this chapter, we see Isaiah declaring the coming of the Gentile church by the word of the Lord. Was the church God’s alternative plan after the Jews rejected the Messiah? Is Christianity as we know it simply God’s contingency plan after He came to His own people and His own received Him not? In this chapter Isaiah speaks centuries ahead of time of a people who “are not a people” calling upon the Lord and constituting a chosen community of faith. In that context we … (click link or title to continue)

The Father Says Today: April 14th, 2017

The Father says today, come to Me and ask with specificity. It is not necessary for you to pray in generalities. You need not approach My throne vaguely hoping for crumbs from the Master’s table. You are an entitled one. You are born again of the incorruptible seed. There is nothing in you I choose to look at that disqualifies you from the promise of My word. Come expectantly. Come rejoicing. Come before Me with a knowing that I receive you as a loving Father receives His favored child. You are as the apple – the pupil of My eye … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light –  April 14th, 2017 – Isaiah 64:  God is Moving Toward You

Morning Light – Isaiah 64 Today: [Isaiah 64] God is Moving Toward You. In Isaiah 64 we see Isaiah calling for the Father to “rend the heavens” a make Himself manifest in the midst of the people in a difficult time. He acknowledges that all have sinned and that man’s idea of righteousness is filthy rags at the judgment seat of heaven. Regardless of man’s iniquity we see God will meet and move toward those who rejoice and work righteousness in their lives. What is righteousness? Righteousness is not a religious code. According to 1 Cor. 1:30 righteousness is only … (click link or title to continue)

The Father Says Today: April 13th, 2017

The Father says today, you are in training for reigning. Ruling and reigning in Me is not something you are waiting to die in order to step into. Regardless of what men may say – you are a principality and a power in My kingdom NOW. You are a king and priest by My ordination. Are you a king? Are you a priest? Come into agreement with My word, says the Father. You are king – for I am the King of kings. Just as I have a domain and a jurisdiction, even so you have a domain and a … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – April 12th, 2017 – Isaiah 63:  The Need of a Savior

Morning Light – Isaiah 63 Today: [Isaiah 63] The Need of a Savior. In this chapter, we find the fury of God poured out upon a disobedient people. In the midst of this there is mention of the mercy and pity of God that is available, but unappropriated because man chooses his own way in lieu of submitting to the Father’s origination of salvation through the cross. Why did (why does) God judge? Is He a megalomaniacal despot gleefully raining consequences down upon defenseless men who cannot escape? Is God insane? Modern thinking would suggest that this would be the … (click link or title to continue)

The Father Says Today: April 12th, 2017

The Father says today, I give you access to all that heaven affords. In the heavens, you will find laid up in store every resource, every strategy and promise that My word makes available through the work of the cross. I haven’t called you to achieve by human effort. I do not need your help, but I do require your cooperation. I am the one who comes alongside of you in the midst of your effort and adds My nature and character to decide the outcome. Your outcome is not defined on human terms by what man says, but your … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – April 11th, 2017 – Isaiah 62:  Interceding for the Zion of God

Morning Light – Isaiah 62 Today: [Isaiah 62] Interceding for the Zion of God. When was the last time you spent a time of intercession and crying out to God for your local church? Criticizing the church and its leadership is and has been a favorite pastime for the body of Christ. Tabloid criticism of leadership and those in ministry is a lively sport of mental athleticism among many believers. Do you criticize the church more than you pray for the church? Have you disengaged with the brick and mortar church with no intention of return? What is the mandate … (click link or title to continue)

The Father Says Today: April 11th, 2017

The Father says today, this is a great day. It may not look like a great day, but it is a great and glorious day. You are not bound by the 24 hour period of time that stretches tediously out before you. You are walking in the day that is known as the DAY OF THE LORD and as such, you are experience kingdom timing and Kairos timing that controls all that happens next in your life. This is the day of the Lord and I have crafted it for your good and for your blessing. There is no challenge … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – April 10th, 2017 – Isaiah 61:  Locating Yourself in the Word

Morning Light – Isaiah 61 Today: [Isaiah 61] Locating Yourself in the Word. In Isaiah 60 we see the words of Jesus in Luke 4:18-19 echoed by the prophet 100’s of years before Jesus came on the scene. We know that Jesus studied the scripture and can glean understanding that as He read the word it was not dead letter but living destiny to Him that He set out to fulfill. The apostle Paul likewise looked at the scripture this way and even in 1 Kings there was a king named in the scripture 340 years before his birth who … (click link or title to continue)
