Learn to Accurately Handle the Word of Truth

How can we leave behind the churches’ hierarchical structure and move into a new structure where, “speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ” (Ephesians 4:15)? How can we speak the truth in love to one another unless we first know the…

A Miracle Detoxification From Hierarchy

The Holy Spirit’s focus in this hour is to raise up a mighty people of individuals who walk with God. We have substituted an individual walk with God for a hierarchical structure – in essence a welfare system. The foundational ministries listed in Ephesians 4 were given for the perfecting of the saints and the…

By What Every Joint Supplies – Ephesians 4:16

As a result of our seeking to become an effective Prophetic community, we are leaving a hierarchical structure to function in a new structure where everyone is involved through their personal walk with God. Nothing will work in this new day unless each person has an intimate relationship with God. Therefore, we need to give…

Complete Obedience

This message unveils the secret to living in days of fulfillment and the joy of the Lord. The secret is found in our complete obedience to God’s Word. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we must search our hearts to find the areas where we have failed to do what we have been asked…

Uprooting The Spirit of Saul From The School Of Prophets

This Word prepares us to be a school of prophets through an intense, individual repentance. For too long, we have allowed the principalities and powers ruling this age to train and condition us to live a certain way. Song of Solomon 2:15 says, “Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that are ruining the…

Finally, The Lordship of Christ!

Since the Feast of Pentecost celebration, we have been on a journey to the Lordship of Christ with no editing, no facades and no restrictions; finally, the Lordship of Christ! What are our values and treasures? Are they the same as Christ’s? Or are we living according to what is correct in our own eyes?…

Walk Through the Portal of Pentecost

In the celebration of the Feast of Pentecost, we walk through the portal that is Christ and hold fast to the Word of God. How do we do this? By loving Christ. He said, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments” (John 14:15). To love is to obey; to hear the Word of…

Let His Truth Into Your Hiding Places

I had the opportunity to share the Word with our family in Maui, Hawaii, this Sunday morning. I titled the message “Let His Truth Into Your Hiding Places.” The Scriptures say that God desires “truth in the innermost being” (Psalm 51:6). We should think about the truth as a person: Christ is the way, the…

Holocaust, Never Again!

On Monday evening, April 9th, we shared a deep moment of communion with our Jewish brothers and sisters as we participated in the annual event, “Holocaust, Never Again!”, organized by the Jewish institutions of Niterói in a partnership with the City Counsel of Niterói. The event recalls the atrocities experienced by the Jewish people during…

How Long Will We Hesitate Between Two Thoughts?

I Kings 18:21: Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you hesitate between two opinions?” Once again, the spirit of Elijah, which precedes the coming of the Lord, is asking us the same question, “How long will we hesitate between two opinions?” As of this Passover, futility is eliminated and…

The Manifestation of the Fourth Generation is Fulfillment

God’s promise in His original covenant with Abraham was fulfilled in the fourth generation according to Genesis 15:16, “Then in the fourth generation they will return here.” There was no delay in the promise’s fulfillment; there was a pre-determined time for the fourth generation to arrive and mature. We eliminate our frustration for what we…

The Power of Resurrection Makes Us the Sons of God

As we celebrate Christ’s resurrection, we cry out that the eyes of our understanding be enlightened to see the power of resurrection that is being beamed toward us today. This power declares that we are the sons of God, just as Christ, “was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the…

Wedding of Josiah and Caroline: Vessels of Intercession

The wedding of Josiah and Caroline renewed the spirit of intercession between husbands and wives who give themselves as divine wombs birthing one another into all that God wants them to be. Oneness in love will prevail in this lifestyle of intercession. Scripture references: Song of Solomon 4:7, 9-11, Song of Solomon 8:5-6, 1 Thessalonians…
