Becoming Sons & Daughters part 2

Becoming Sons & Daughters part 2

Welcome to part 2 of what it means to become the Sons and Daughters of the King. You can find part 1 here at: Becoming Son’s & Daughters part 1. Last week, I began talking about how we can become sons and daughters of the King by understanding what our spiritual inheritance is In this post, I would like to talk about authority which is part of our spiritual inheritance. There are certain rights and privileges that come with son-ship, and it is vital that we understand how we can position ourselves to receive our breakthrough and bounty for this year. What exactly is spiritual Authority[1]? Below is the definition of authority from Dictionary.com Authority A power or right delegated or given; authorization: Who has the authority to grant permission? Usually, authorities. Persons having the legal power to make and enforce the law; government: A person or body of persons in whom authority is vested, as a governmental agency.   My definition of Spiritual Authority is a delegated power bestowed upon us by Jesus, so that we can carry on His work. Jesus demonstrated that He possesses all authority in heaven and on earth. And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease (Matthew 10:1). Jesus called the disciples and gave them authority. They received this authority because of their relationship with Jesus. It was not their authority; it was His authority and power working through them. While here on earth before returning to heaven,...

Becoming Sons & Daughters – Part 1

In light of the word for 2015 I shared a few weeks ago for the body of Christ, I felt the Lord was directing me to write about the things that can get in our way of obtaining our breakthrough and bounty for this year. I am sure you know and have experienced that in order to have a breakthrough there must be a battle, and in order to receive bounty, there is a victory which brings rewards! Last week I shared the first step in contending for our promises and prophecies is to eliminate fear from our life and recognize “Who you are and Whose you are!” You can find it here: No Longer Slaves. If you didn’t get a chance to read the word for 2015, you can find it here: 2015 – A Year of Breakthrough and Bounty! This week I want to talk about what it means to be the Sons and Daughters of the King.  Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation–but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, “”Abba,” Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we...
No Longer Slaves

No Longer Slaves

Last week, I posted the word for 2015 that the Lord gave me for the body of Christ. If you didn’t get a chance to read it, you can find it here: 2015 – A Year of Breakthrough and Bounty! Over the next few weeks, I am going to write about the things that can get in our way of obtaining our breakthrough and bounty for this year. When God speaks through a prophetic word; sometimes, He is telling us what is to come. It doesn’t just, “poof!” happen, and everything falls into place; although, that would be nice. Sometimes there are things in our lives that need to shift or change in order for us to receive that which He has spoken. When the newest album from Bethel Music came out, “We Will Not Be Shaken,” I was captivated by the song “No Longer Slaves” by Johnathon David and Melissa Helser. I had it on repeat for days. It’s interesting because I don’t have fear issues like I used to and would have easily dismissed the notion that I did. Yet, something in my spirit needed this song. Truth be told, I still deal with fear, I am nowhere near as bad as I used to be, but every now and then, it pops its head up and paralyzes me. Faith and fear cannot occupy the same space at the same time, one has to go, and it must be fear! In the past, I have had such a huge issue with fear of man. I was a people pleaser more than I was a God pleaser. I...
2015 – A Year of Breakthrough and Bounty!

2015 – A Year of Breakthrough and Bounty!

As I was preparing to preach the last Sunday in December of 2014, I asked the Lord for a prophetic word for the coming year for His church. He said: 2015 is to be a year of Breakthrough and Bounty! That was it. One sentence. I kept waiting for more, but He said it would come later. So, I simply shared that one sentence, and I waited for the more. It was a little over a week into the New Year when I began to receive testimonies of Breakthrough and Bounty from those in our church. As we did our first ever All Church fast in January 2015, I fully expected the Lord to give me the rest of the word; unfortunately, He did not. In fact it was 4 months to the date while I was speaking at a women’s retreat that I received the rest of the word. As I was preparing and reading over my notes, I felt the Lord prompt me that it was time! It was time for Him to share with me the rest of the word for 2015. It is below.   April 26, 2015 2015 – A year of Breakthrough and Bounty  This year is to be year of Breakthrough and Bounty. In every area of your life: spiritually, mentally, and physically. This is not just about prosperity and financial gain. This is the year to lay a hold of the promises and prophecies of God. It’s time. It’s time for you to stand! It’s time ; for you to take your place as the sons and daughters of God! No...
