Finally, The Lordship of Christ!
May 27th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

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? We must recognize that we […]

Walk Through the Portal of Pentecost
May 26th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

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 God is to do what […]

Let His Truth Into Your Hiding Places
April 29th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

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 truth, and the life (John […]

April 13th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

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 the World War II Holocaust, […]

How Long Will We Hesitate Between Two Thoughts?
April 8th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

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 delay is ended. However, it […]

Passover: The End of Futility as We Take Care of Our Neighbor
April 7th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

Exodus 12:3-4 gives us a new revelation of how we should treat our neighbor. When the children of Israel were directed to kill and eat a lamb on Passover eve, if a family were too small to eat an entire lamb, they were directed to invite their closest neighbor to partake of the lamb with them, then to place the […]

The Manifestation of the Fourth Generation is Fulfillment
April 6th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

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 consider to be the lack […]

The Power of Resurrection Makes Us the Sons of God
April 1st, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

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 dead” (Romans 1:4). Based on […]

Wedding of Josiah and Caroline: Vessels of Intercession
March 25th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

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 5:23, Matthew 6:10. I brought […]

God’s Plan to Deliver His People
March 25th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

God requires the manifestation of a people as His answer to this generation; therefore, we must stop focusing on our own needs. God commissioned Moses saying, “I will send you to Pharaoh, so that you may bring My people, the sons of Israel, out of Egypt” (Exodus 3:10). Moses’ first response was his reluctance to do God’s will because he […]

Passover Starts At Home
March 24th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

Exodus chapter 12 describes our preparation for Passover. God gave specific instructions, such as sacrificing a lamb without blemish and putting its blood on the doorposts of the house. In our preparation for Passover, we need to search our hearts by the Holy Spirit and ask, “Am I following every detail of the instructions in God’s Word?” We have received […]

An Intimate Prayer Relationship With the Lord
March 18th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

“But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret” (Matthew 6:6). Christ reconciled us to the Heavenly Father so that we could have an intimate, personal relationship with Him. In Luke 10:41-42, Jesus told Martha, “…you are careful and troubled about many things, but one […]

Wedding of João and Jordana: Know the Intimacy of the Lord
March 17th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

The expression in Genesis, “and Adam knew his wife” (Genesis 4:1, 25 KJV), has a connotation of intimacy which surpasses the physical relationship of a married couple. It is an intimacy that is the result of an intimate and personal relationship with God in which we know Him and we are also known by Him (I Corinthians 13:12). When there […]

Victory Over the Tyranny of Suspicion
March 15th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

In the Garden of Eden, the serpent planted suspicion in the heart of man. “And he said to the woman, ‘Indeed, has God said?’” (Genesis 3:1). Suspicion is the opposite of love because love does not does not, “take into account a wrong suffered” (I Corinthians 13:5). “ Love casts out all fear that produces torment” (I John 4:18). Love […]

Passover: The Wicked One Does Not Touch Us
March 11th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

The spirit realm affects and controls the natural realm in which we live. We usually blame our problems on people and not on the spiritual realm. As part of our preparation for the Feast of Passover, we take responsibility to reorganize the spirit realm and eliminate every satanic influence in our lives, “For it is time for judgment to begin […]

…And Against All the Gods of Egypt I Will Execute Judgments” – Exodus 12:12
March 10th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

Each of the ten plagues was God’s judgment of a specific Egyptian god. God’s jealousy for His people was the reason for judgment (Isaiah 26:11). Now, by the cross of Christ, by His blood and His resurrection, we are given the right and the authority to judge the gods that defeat us. As a preparation for Passover 2018, we strategically […]
