Word for Today:  October 21


The Power of death and the Power of life is in your tongue.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue… Prov 18

It matters how you talk.  Choose to “speak the Word only” and speak only what the Word declares.    Confess what God says and not what you feel or how you feel or what others think.

  • Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth… Pro 6:2
  • The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life… Pro 10:11
  • A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth… Pro 12:14
  • A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth…. he that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life… Pro 13:3
  • A wholesome tongue is a tree of life… Pro 15:4
  • A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth… Pro 15:23
  • A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul. Pro 18:7
  • A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue…  Pro 18:20-21.

Words kill or words give life.  Words bring success or words cause failure.  Words initiate healing.  Words make things start or cause things to stop.  Words are carriers.  They bring in and they carry out.

What you say is important.  Your words will imprison you or set you free.


What you say is what you get

It matters


It really matters what and how you believe.  You can’t just believe anything and everything and live.  If you do not Believer Right you move into the realm of death.  If you do not Believe Right you will constantly be defeated and overcome by demon forces.

Jesus said to Martha at the tomb of Lazarus:

I am the resurrection and the life; he that believeth in me though he were dead, yet shall he live;  and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.  Believeth thou this?  John 11:25-26.

Do you Believe?  What do you believe?  How do you believe?  In whom do you believe?  Be sure you believe right.  Ignorance is no excuse.  False doctrine and flawed teaching is no excuse.  Religious tradition and denominational doctrines are no excuse.  To believe right is believing:

  • That the Bible is the Word of God.
  • That Jesus is the Son of God.
  • That Jesus Died on the Cross for the sin of the world.
  • That Jesus went to hell and conquered the devil.
  • That Jesus rose again in the fullness of His Resurrection Power.
  • That He is Alive.  Now.  And forever.
  • That He has empowered His Church to do His Work on earth.
  • That He is returning to claim His own and establish His Earthly

Believing this really matters.


Believing right determines your eternal future

Right Choices

Right Choices are choices and decisions that are based on the Word of God.  They have TRUTH as their foundation.  They agree with God and with God’s Word.  They line up with the plan and purpose of God for your life.  Right Choices guarantee God’s cooperation with you in every life situation.  They make you partners with God…  Right Choices will bring God’s Power into play in fulfilling your dreams and visions and goals.  When you decide right you make a spiritual connection with God and no power in heaven or earth will defeat or stand against you…   All of heaven’s resources become available to you when you Choose Life…  And they are guaranteed and secured by the Faithfulness and Integrity of Almighty God.

Wrong Choices

Wrong Choices are choices and decisions that are based on the logic and reason of the World System.  They are arrived at by feeling and sight and emotion.  They are always “reasonable.”  Their foundation is Fact and their power is limited to what man and his mind can do.  They lock one into the natural and never allow him to break into the supernatural.  Wrong choices will release satan to attack and buffet.   This is humanism in raw form.  Wrong choices invite demons to possess and oppress.  Everything that is based on decisions made in natural reasoning and sense knowledge is subject to failure.  They all have the seed of Death in them and death will ultimately prevail.  All wrong choices issue forth from human reasoning, natural facts, sense knowledge and an unrenewed mind.

Right choices bring God’s very best into your life.  Wrong choices empower satan to steal, kill and destroy; to bring confusion and devastation and sickness and disease and failure.  Your present condition is the direct result of choices you made in the past.  If you do not like what is happening to you it is most likely because you made some wrong choices in the past.  Don’t complain and gripe… decide to change your choices…  Decide to choose Life.

God plainly told the Israelites to choose life and as a result they would live.  Not only would they live, but so would their seed.  And they would all live a long time.  This is an Old Testament promise.  The New Testament covenant we have that is ratified by the Blood of Jesus is a stronger, better and more binding covenant. The Old was secured by the blood of bulls and goats.  The New is guaranteed by the Blood of the Sinless Son of God.

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:  Deut 30:19


Choose Life


October 18, 2017

Word for Today:  October 18


Practically every situation on the world scene today is indicative of death, decay and defeat.

Fear prevails.  War threatens.  Terror rules.  Starvation and deprivation are the norm for two-thirds of the earth’s population.  There is NO HOPE in the natural.  Even at life’s best, death is only a heart-beat… a single breath away.  Cemeteries and funeral homes and hospitals and morgues are a constant reminder of the relentless pursuit of death.  Death is the counterpart of life in the world system and it is constantly overtaking the living.

But there is a way to live and keep from dying.

The Bible says that we can Choose Life and Refuse death.

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you Life and Death blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may LIVE…   (Deut 30:19).

To choose Life and refuse Death is to Choose God and refuse the devil.

For He (God) is thy life and the length of thy days… (Verse 20).

Now, since people had rather live than die how can they do it?  Had you rather live than die?  Then it’s up to you.  Most think they can do nothing about life and nothing about death, but the Bible says that you have the privilege of Choosing which one you want…  The Bible says that we have a choice in the matter.  As a matter of fact, it gives us a simple multiple choice test.  Then, God is so anxious for you to get it right, He tells you which answer to choose!

When you choose to live you also choose for your seed to live.  When you choose to die you also choose for your seed to die.

God has bestowed awesome power in you.  He has given you the power and authority to choose.  What you choose and accept is what will come to pass.  What you refuse and resist is what will go away.  This is a Divine Principle set forth in the Word.


What choice will you make today?

God wants your Dreams to Come True.

He has made you a dreamer and a visionary.  He has placed in you the capacity to dream and to have visions of greatness.  He wants you to plan on big things.  He is a Big God and He want you to expand your horizons and elevate your sights.  He wants you out of your “box” with all your limitations and restraints removed.  He wants you to dream big dreams.

God wants you to Work with Him.  There is a big difference between working FOR God and working WITH God.  Most of us have spent our entire Spiritual Lives endeavoring to work for God.  This is good, but it is not the best.  It is better than nothing, but it is not what God really wants.  God wants you and me to work WITH Him.

And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen. Mark 16:20

We need to understand that working with God is the way to make our dreams come true.

satan does not want you to have a dream.  he does not want you to be excited about your future.  he does not want you to believe for big things and to dream big dreams.  he is a dream stealer.  he is a discourager.  he is a mountain builder (God is the mountain mover).

The devil is threatened and hell is terrified every time a Believer moves into the place of working with God.

When we understand that we are living in the Blessing of God, we are enabled to Dream Big.

When we Dream Big Dreams and determine to attempt the impossible, we please God.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.   Heb 11:6

“Two prisoners stared through prison bars,  One saw mud, the other, stars…”

It is important to know Who we are, What we have, What we can do and Why we can do it.

The devil constantly tempts us to doubt.  he wants us to doubt who we are (he tried to get Jesus to doubt Who He was) or to wonder who we are or to be ignorant of who we are.

As long as we are not sure of our position in Christ, our Authority and our Faith will not work.  We cannot receive and achieve if we are confused, conflicted or uncertain about what God says concerning who we are, what we have, what we can do and why we can do it.

God has raised up strong Word Churches and anointed preachers in order to instruct His people about their privileges, their powers and their Rights which are revealed in the Word.

Anointed Leaders are set in the Body as master craftsmen to build us up in the Word.  We are “God’s Building” and they are Holy Ghost Craftsmen equipped with the Proper Building Materials to make us strong in the Lord and in the Power of His might.

They are Called and Sent by God for our instruction, our enlightenment and our inspiration.  They are God-appointed “explainers,”  and “exhorters” and to inform us and give us insight and revelation regarding what God says concerning:

  • Who we are
  • What we have
  • What we can do and
  • Why we can do it

Knowing this gives us a winning advantage over every attack of the enemy.

In the past our concept of God has often been limited and incorrect.

We have been led to believe that God is mad and mean.  We have often lived in great fear and anxiety because we were told that God was going to get even…  He has been presented as a God of Judgment and a God of revenge and great wrath.

At the same time we were told how unworthy and sinful we were and, as a result, we lived under continual condemnation.  The main message from the pulpit was fear oriented and it continually emphasized how hot hell is and how endless eternity is.   Thank God, times have changed…  Our level of Revelation has greatly increased and we have discovered the true nature of God.

  • God is a Giver. God is a Giver because He is a Lover.
  • God us a Lover because He is a Father.
  • God does not Kill, murder, take away, hinder, hurt, test, try, make sick, give cancer, cause poverty, or “get even.”
  • God is Good. He loves, gives, multiplies, heals, delivers, makes free, provides riches, fixes, helps, strengthens, provides, protects…  and on and on we could go.  And we could never exhaust the wealth of blessings God has for those who love Him.

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 1Co 2:9

It’s the devil that kills, steals, destroys, hinders, hurts, binds, subtracts, crushes, takes your money, your happiness, your joy, and your peace.

A simple test to find out where all the stuff than happens to you comes from.  I offer this simple yet accurate criteria:

If it is Good it’s God, if it’s Bad it is the devil…

The devil can’t do good things and God doesn’t do bad things.


If it’s GOOD it is God.

If it’s BAD it is the devil.

The present-day New Testament church cannot be successfully governed by carnal, uncalled, unanointed leadership. It is not and never was the Will of God for the Church to be a democratic institution.

As difficult to understand as it is in our American culture, proper New Testament church government is not democratic in principle.  We need to understand that the leadership of the local church MUST be unfettered.  They must never be controlled, influenced or manipulated by those who are not spiritually minded.

The early church, which is described in the Book of Acts, had a unique and innovative method of government.  It was not governed by democratic principles as most denominational churches are in this present day.  It was Apostolic in nature.

Decisions and actions undertaken by the church must be made and implemented by those whom God has placed in positions of leadership. The Apostle.  The Prophet.  The Pastor.  The Teacher.  The Evangelist. Ruling Elders… those with a Call from God on their lives who are demonstrating the anointing of the Holy Ghost in their lives and ministry.

And those who are privileged to occupy such honored positions need to be accountable to one another and respected for their varied ministries.

God will lead, the Word will Guide and success will be guaranteed.

One of the greatest illustrations of God’s Power being released through the Gifts of the Spirit happened to me back in the last 70’s when I was invited to teach in a leadership conference being held in Santiago, Chile, South America.

My assignment was to teach on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit to a group of Methodist leaders who had come from many districts in Chile to attend the conference.  When my interpreter (from English to Spanish) failed to show up, I was faced with an insurmountable difficulty.  It was impossible (in the natural) to communicate with the class of about 30 who had chosen to learn about the Holy Spirit and His present-day work in the Church.

After a few minutes of utter frustration, I began to forcefully speak out loud in Tongues.  The room was suddenly filled with the Power of God.  The interpretation was supernatural.  When I finally found someone to come and translate for me, I was informed that those in the class heard and understood what I had spoken in their native language, Spanish.

They told me through the interpreter, that they received specific instruction on how to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

And they all did.


It was a Miracle of the First Order

What is involved in Salvation?

God has a part and we have a part.  God’s part is called Regeneration and our part is called Repentance and Faith.  When we repent of our sin and believe in our heart that Jesus is Messiah and openly confess our heart-belief, we become Born Again.

God impregnates us (natural man) with His Life (Spirit) and we are made Supernatural Creations.  God’s Life comes into us along with all the other God Characteristics and we become the Sons (and daughters) of God.  “As many as received Him to them gave He power to become the Sons of God…”  We receive God’s Life, God’s Power, God’s Authority, God’s Love, and God’s Faith.   His Word becomes flesh.

All these come INSIDE of you when you get Born Again.  God purposes this for you.  God wills this for you.  God has prepared this for you.   Your body literally becomes the Temple of the Holy Ghost.  You are bought with a price and you belong to God. You have been Born, not of corruptible seed but of incorruptible seed, the Word of God.

Salvation has responsibilities.  It is free but it is not cheap.  It is received by Faith but it is outwardly expressed in works.  We are not saved by works but works will follow salvation.  We are told to “work out our salvation with fear and trembling…” and this means we are to work out what God has worked in.  Salvation will be demonstrated by and through a changed life.

If any man be in Christ he is a new creature (creation) old things are passed away and behold all things are made new…   2Cor 5:17


Eternal Salvation is the greatest miracle available to man
