Word for Today:  January 7


Many in the body of Christ have never made it into the realm of winning and overcoming.

Some are still living in defeat, sickness, poverty and death.  Some are frustrated and sad and overwhelmed by problems and obstacles and circumstances.  More are just plain weary, tired, worn out and wounded… they are on the verge of quitting or simply copping out.

However, you are destined to win.

It doesn’t matter how bleak or hopeless or helpless your situation may be, if you are BORN AGAIN YOU ARE DESTINED TO WIN!   This is GOOD NEWS.   And that is precisely what the Gospel is:  GOOD NEWS.

Jesus commanded us to preach the GOSPEL to the POOR.  When the Gospel that is preached is received and acted on, the POOR will not stay POOR, the SICK will not stay SICK, the WEAK will not stay WEAK and the LOST will not stay LOST.

Every Believer has a destiny to succeed.  God has planned winning for you and provided the means for you to accomplish victory.  In every situation.  Anytime.  Every time.  And all the time.


…and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.  1Jo 5:4

Word for Today:  January 6


Once upon a time.

Once upon a time there was a mountainside, where an eagle’s nest rested. The eagle’s nest contained four large eagle eggs. One day an earthquake rocked the mountain causing one of the eggs to roll down the mountain, right into a chicken farm, which was located in the valley below. The chickens knew that they must protect and care for the eagle’s egg, so an old hen volunteered to nurture the large egg until it hatched.

When the egg hatched a beautiful eagle was born. Sadly, however, the eagle was raised to be a chicken. Soon, the eagle believed he was nothing more than a chicken. The eagle loved his home and family, but his spirit cried out for more.

While playing a game on the farm one day, the eagle looked above and noticed a group of mighty eagles soaring in the skies. “Oh,” the eagle cried, “I wish I could soar like those birds.” The chickens roared with laughter, “You can’t soar with those birds. You are a chicken and chickens don’t soar.”

The eagle continued staring at his real family up above dreaming that he could be with them. Each time the eagle would let his dreams be known, he was told it couldn’t be done. And so, that is what the eagle learned to believe. The eagle, after time, stopped dreaming and continued to live his life as a chicken.

Finally, after his long life as a chicken, the eagle died.  He never spread his wings, gathered the strength of the wind and soared in the heights he was created to master.

The chickens convinced the eagle that he would never fly.   He stayed in the chicken pen until he died.

Believers are called to demonstrate satan’s defeat.

And having spoiled principalities and powers, He (Jesus) made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it… Col. 2:15

God is a God of DEMONSTRATION.  He is a GOD of POWER and MIGHT.  He operates in great success and energy.  And He lives inside every Believer.

Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world… 1Jn 4:4

satan is the illegitimate ruler of this world.  he is a defeated and humiliated enemy.  he is a liar and a cheat.  he is an accuser and an intimidator.  he barks but can’t bite because Jesus pulled his teeth.

We have been given Power over the devil and his demons (Mark 16:17).  satan gets his destructive  power from ignorant, naïve Believers.  The devil cannot do what we will not allow him do.

You and I (the Church) have been called into the kingdom to DEMONSTRATE satan’s DEFEAT.  You have been saved to make an OPEN SHOW of satan’s LIMITATIONS and to parade him before the world in an open display of his powerlessness.


Let the parade begin today

Word for Today:  January 4


The dynamics of our contemporary mode of living tend to keep us ignorant of the Move of God.

Most are looking everywhere and seeing everything but God and what He is doing.  If we talk about the New Thing, the Move of God and the coming End Time Harvest most will think we are in too deep.  Too far.  Too much.  Too radical.  Too spiritual.  Too serious.  Too wild.

But don’t be surprised… they were acting the same way in Noah’s Day.  And Jesus said:

But as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of Man…  Luke 17:26

For 120 years they rejected Noah’s radical preaching.  They laughed at his “foolish” construction project. They ignored his warnings.  They refused to listen and heed.  They waited and debated.  They considered but refused to consent.

Then IT happened.  And when it did it was too late for them.  They got left out. They got shut out.  They got locked out of safety, security and life.  They were lost.  Forever.  Eternally.


Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.   Mt 24:44
