Powerful Authority


As I thought about the authority that we have as believers I began to see something quite extraordinary, at least to me.

  • We have authority in Jesus' Name, it is true.
  • We have authority over every evil work, it is true.
  • We have authority over the evil one himself, it is true.
  • We pray, we shout, we stomp our feet ... it is true and it's okay.

But that is not where the real power is.

While we are praying, shouting and stomping our feet in authority we are missing a very important point of power:

The real power of authority comes from our unity.

John 17:21-24 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me. NKJV

When the body of Christ comes into unity there will be NOTHING that can stand in our way of establishing the Kingdom of God in the earth.


Unity is the most powerful weapon we have, saints of God. Why do you think the devil fights so hard to keep us apart with our petty doctrinal differences? For truly in the light of eternity they are petty indeed.

Do you love Jesus? Do you believe in the cleansing power of His blood? Do you believe that He died, was buried and rose again and is sitting at the right hand of the Father? Then we are family.

I don't care if you dunk or sprinkle, if you take bread or wafers, if you shout or are quiet or what your chosen 'label' is. The only thing that matters is Jesus Christ and His blood shed for us.

  • Let us press past all of the nonsense of religion into the power of His presence in us as one people.
  • This is our Father's heart. This is our Father's mandate to us.

3 John 4 "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth." NKJV
Amen. So be it.

I am exposing abuse in the Body of Christ at every level. You will see this abomination made public, coming out from under layers of cover-up. I am taking My searchlight and shining it into every crack and crevice. What lay dormant will be made manifest. I desire to bring My Bride into holiness, so do not be surprised when you see these things made public. Every rock will be overturned. This is the day of cleansing the house.

I shall come with a sword to smite the enemy and you will see demonstrations of My power in your midst. I will determine the outcome. I will judge and bring righteousness. So do not be convinced otherwise. This is a day to rejoice in your king, to give Him glory, to know that the Lord your God does reign. You will see evidence of My workings amongst you. You will come to understand that I am actively involved in your situations.

I am opening up those things hidden for all to see. I will expose injustice and fowl play. From earliest times, the enemy has been able to keep a cover on sin, but today is the day when the cover will be removed!

I am coming in power to pierce the darkness, to expel lies and deception, and I will do a thorough work. I will go to the bottom of the issue, to the core, and will bring up those things that have been hidden. Watch Me move dramatically to expose witchcraft, adultery, pride, idolatry, illicit gain. I will trample these sins under My feet. I will bring order to the house. I will line things up with My perfect order. You will see that I have not overlooked one thing. I will expose every root, every rootlet.

I am uncovering circumstantial evidence against those who have tried to conceal the truth. I will expose the lies and bring into account every lie that has been spoken. So, be ready to come into understanding. Be ready to be included as a witness against those who have covered things up. I have loosed My Spirit into the earth to turn the tables on the unjust, to discredit those who covered sin.

False teachings and the counsel of men will be uprooted. Watch Me pluck them out of the midst of My people. Every word spoken that was not of Me and not My counsel will fall to the ground and I will expose the wolves in sheep’s clothing. Watch Me make a spectacle of those who thought they could hide behind masks of pretence.

Justice will prevail! Exposure will take place among the Body of believers! I will expose everything that is hidden. I will make it evident to all. Watch to see Me perform My will in the midst of you. Watch to see how I intervene to bring justice.

This is the day of judgement and justice. Call upon the Lord, call upon His name. He will be a strong tower to those who would run into Him. Decide in your own mind who you will serve. Check motives, review intents. What are your affections placed on? What is it you put your hope in? I am coming with a measuring rod and I will execute vengeance upon that which does not line up.

Lighten Up

Larry R. Taylor

Jesus promised an abundant overflowing ever-renewing flow of life. For too many, their personal experience would be better characterized as trying to suck the remains of an empty cup through a collapsed straw. Why?

And it will come to pass in that day that the mountains shall drip with new wine, the hills shall flow with milk, and all the brooks of Judah shall be flooded with water; a fountain shall flow from the house of the Lord and water the Valley of Acacias. Joel 3:18 NKJV

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, 'If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.' But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. John 7:37-38 NKJV

Trying to get water from an empty glass is a frustrating experience. The flow is to come from within our innermost being. To be filled requires that we drink. To overflow requires that we drink a lot. For the flow to be continual we need to continually be drinking. Jesus said, "Come to ME".

There is no joy in coming to yourself. The cup is empty. It is hard unsatisfying work to try to draw the resources required for life from a dry container. Religion places all the responsibility on man to accomplish what God requires. Jesus in stark contrast to religion says; "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and My burden is light" (Matt. 11:28-29 NKJV). IF YOU ARE CARRYING SOMETHING HEAVY TODAY IT DIDN'T COME FROM JESUS! Drop it. The Holy Spirit waits for the simple request "fill me Jesus".

The Isolation Chamber

Os Hillman

Be still and know that I am God.... Psalm 46:10

There is a time and place in our walk with God in which He sets us in a place of waiting. It is a place in which all past experiences are of no value. It is a time of such stillness that it can disturb the most faithful if we do not understand that He is the one who has brought us to this place for only a season. It is as if God has placed a wall around us. No new opportunities--simply inactivity. During these times, God is calling us aside to fashion something new in us. It is an isolation chamber designed to call us to deeper roots of prayer and faith. It is not a comfortable place, especially for a task-driven businessperson. Our nature cries out, "You must do something," while God is saying, "Be still and know that I am God."

You know the signs that you have been brought into this chamber when He has removed many things from your life and you can't seem to change anything. Perhaps you are unemployed. Perhaps you are laid up with an illness.

Most religious people live a very planned and orchestrated life where they know almost everything that will happen. But for people in whom God is performing a deeper work, He brings them into a time of quietness that seems almost eerie. They cannot say what God is doing. They just know that He is doing a work that cannot be explained to themselves or to others.

Has God brought you to a place of being still? Be still and know that He really is God. When this happens, the chamber will open soon after.

I Have Not Given You The Spirit Of Fear

Teresa Seputis

When the spirit of fear comes upon you, rebuke it, for it is not from Me. I interact with My children from the orientation of love, and perfect love casts out all fear. My children do not have to be afraid of Me, for I am a good God and a loving Father. My heart and My plans for each child of Mine is good. I do not desire for My little ones to be afraid of the circumstances that come their way. I desire to permeate you in My supernatural peace that passes all understanding. I want to put a faith and an assurance in your heart that I am able to provide, that I am in control even when the circumstances look overwhelming, and that I work My glory in all things that concern My faithful servants. You do not have to be afraid of the future, for I hold your future in My hand and My plans and desires for you are for good. Trust Me and know that I will take care of you.

Child, did you know that you have control of your heart? I offer you supernatural peace, but it is your choice to receive it. I do not force My peace upon you against your wishes. Rather I offer it to you as a gift, one that you can accept or one that you can choose to reject.

The enemy tries to force a spirit of fear upon you. He controls by deceit and lies and he desires to sow seeds of fear and intimidation into you. His plans for you are to kill, steal and destroy, and he wants to make you terrified of what he had planned. But know this, your enemy can plan and scheme for your harm, but he cannot carry out his plans against you when I raise a standard against it. You do not have to fear the enemy, he does not have power and control --I do.

Child, choose which you will receive.. My peace or the enemy's fear. Both have been offered to you, and you will embrace one or the other. Child, put your trust in Me and embrace My peace.

Your enemy wants to make you afraid of Me. Do not fear My rejection or My displeasure. For I say to you that, no matter what you have done in the past, if you will come to me with a contrite heart, with a spirit of repentance and a heart to obey -- I will not cast you away. I will not reject you. Rather I will receive you with open arms. I will apply the blood of My Son to your case and you will be made fully righteous by what He accomplished for you on Calvary. Do not fear to run to Me. It is much more terrifying to run away from Me in rebellion or shame than to run to Me in submission and repentance. Do not be afraid to return to Me. If you come to me with a repentant heart, I will not cast you away.

Child of Mine, do not be afraid of My chastening. It is true that I correct those who I love. But I do not chastise to punish and to pour out My vengeance. I say to you that judgment is reserved for My Son to make on that last day, when all are called into account before My presence. My chastisement is NOT My judgment. I do not judge you to punish you for your shortcomings or wrong choices. Rather I bring loving correction to set you on the right path, to show you the way in which you should go. Like a boat that is off-course, I change your direction and set you on the right path. My heart is not to cause you pain, it is to cause you to excel. It is to empower you to do well all that I have given you to do. Think of My correction as minor adjustments to cause you to go in the right direction and to succeed in all you do. For that is My heart and My desire for you.

Child of Mine, I have given you great authority. You have been given authority over the lies and fear strategies of the enemy. But you must choose to exercise that authority, or it will not do you any good. You must choose to rebuke the spirit of fear when it attacks you. You must choose to believe the truth of My love for you; and that will case out all fear of rejection and disqualification that the enemy throws at you. You must choose to believe in My protection and trust in My care and provision; that will break the fear of the future that the enemy tries to traumatize you with.

Child of Mine, My love for you is perfect and it casts out all fear. Do not choose to receive fear unto yourself. Look to Me, trust in Me, and fear not!

As of the Wings of an Eagle

Elvi Glass

My children, as My light is shining through you unto those who are in darkness. What is not of Me is exposed. I have given you my Spirit to help you and also give you insight into the things of My kingdom.

Without My Spirit, there is no true understanding of kingdom matters. I wish for you, My children, to spread your wings so that My Spirit can catch you up and bring you to new heights in Me. You don't need to flap your wings frantically, trying to figure out how this or that works, but simply spread your wings and wait -- and trust Me that I am able to carry you to the heights that I want you to be carried to.

The new heights may make you uncomfortable initially or even cause uneasiness because you are not used to them. I admonish you to rest in My peace as the eagle trusts the wind that carries it. Where My peace is there is no stress and there is no fear.

I am pouring out a greater measure of My anointing upon those who are sealed into My name. The earth has never seen this level of anointing before.

I want you to be ready. I want you to be ready as an eagle is ready and waiting right before it is caught up and then lifted off to soar between heaven and earth. Know that it is My strength, My power, My enabling you to do mighty things. As you remain in Me there are no limits as to what can be accomplished.

You see, it is when you rest in Me that I am glorified and My majesty is revealed in the earth and among you.

Another Chance At Destiny

Undrai Fizer

Some of us have become so disoriented about the things of God that we are afraid to be what He has called us to be. We sit and dream and become discouraged because we think if we step out, our present world will crumble and we will lose badly. We feel that we will suffer financially and relationally. We feel we will lose. We hear the word and some of us are encouraged to be released into something we will be discouraged to do. Even in ministry, leaders can release you into something they will discourage you to do.

Talk about being disoriented! Some of of the most awesome things of God are being put on hold right now because of financial problems, credit problems, and relationships. That's something. What sin cannot do in aborting destiny, financial lack will. We can move forward in purpose. Money and credit do not determine the vision of God in your life. Your past immoral stewardship should not discourage your pursuit of another chance at destiny!

You must be prepared to feel the "turbulence" of soaring into the realms of God. You will feel the air pockets and inner discomforts. Those are symptoms of being pregnant with a vision from God.

I wonder why we are encamped around the same realms of prophetic achievement.? We are hearing new things but witnessing the old. We are going in circles. Maybe we have not seen the awesome breakthrough because the others who have that part of the ministry are afraid to come out of their caves of isolation, not because it's not time, but because of a fear of change in their financial world.

Fear of financial and family support have aborted many visions and dreams. Do not allow God to be hindered by your money or your family. Do not allow God to be hindered by your credit. Do not allow God to be hindered, even by your church fellowship. ( It can happen there, too ). We take risks in everything else, so why not God? A risk is good. It just means that you are doing something required, but unfamiliar to your experience.

God's dream in you must not be dictated by banks, credit, or people. He already knew your family experience, and credit report, before He spoke the vision into you. He knew everything. His vision will lead you to the right people who will nurture, mature, and mentor your life in progress. He will lead you to wise counsel who will speak the power of God into your life.

God's vision gives life to you, and you want more of it. It's not too late to do it. It's not to late to be what God is calling you to be. You cannot see the dream fulfilled without a fight. You cannot expect to be perfected without the pain of process. If what you want to be in God has no process, then it is not for God. God has process. He has "pits" and "prisons" of training. The vision will not minimize itself to fit your comfort. It is designed to take you where the Father is.

How do you know it's God?

  • You will know when no one on the outside is pressing you.

  • You hear something in your spirit that no one else does.

  • You are busy calculating and figuring out how your actions will be responded to.

  • You are being led to God to have your life exposed because you feel unfit to do the vision.

  • And you're SCARED too!

You know what it feels like, don't you?

Let Him speak to you. Go to the Word.

And remember, believe God past your fears.

Captivated by His Love

By Ron McGatlin

Many today are both captured by His holy presence - prisoners of His love, and at he same time set free to ascend to new heights of spiritual experience enraptured into a realm of His glory. Faith has become reality as forerunners of the new day of renewal and reformation move into the deeper river of love and experience of His glory that leads us toward the reality of the kingdom of God from heaven coming forth in our lives to touch the world.

Experiencing the depth and passion of His love constrains us to pure obedience to His will. Passion motivates His forerunners to fully give up their ways of living and conform to His kingdom lifestyle.

God has always loved His people and we have had a love for God. So, you might ask, "What is so different now?" The difference is the level of intense intimate passion. God has come near and is drawing forerunner people into intense closeness with Him and increased love for one another.

Forerunners are chosen for the purpose of bringing forth the new day. This intense passionate love connection is for everyone of His children. There are no elite and no hierarchy of men ruling over this new day. Yet while the new is coming forth the old is yet standing and the process of changing from the religious past to the greater reality of pure holiness in His passionate love is taking place as a forerunner people are freely selling all to purchase the perfect pearl and giving their lives to gain the field of treasure - intimate relationship with God.

2 Cor 5:14: For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. 2 Cor 5:15: And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

This is not a head thing. Many Christians believe that they should not live for themselves but should live for Him. They know the truth but in reality they yet live a life mixed with carnal desires and pleasure-seeking. Unknowingly many are seeking from other gods of this world what they should have in the joy of intimate passionate relationship with God. They are missing the greatest life of all - a life laid down for Jesus and intimately connected with the Father - a life of passion in God.

The passion of the Father can become jealousy for the affection of His children. We serve a jealous God that will not forever look away as those whom He loves turn to other lovers (gods). He will do all to turn His people back toward His love. Yet, He will not violate the free will given to His people to choose to love Him. Now is the time of unprecedented outpouring of His passionate love to His people. Multitudes are being drawn by His love into the inner chambers of His heart as the Tabernacle of David is being restored on the earth.

Deu 4:24: "For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.

Amos 9:11: "On that day I will raise up The tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, And repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, And rebuild it as in the days of old.

The presence of God is again meeting with His people in the joyful and sometimes loud worship and praise of the people of God in the Tabernacle of David. Hearts are both overwhelmed with joy and broken as deep loving intercession cries out for all of God's people to respond to His passionate love.

Lots of Love,
Ron McGatlin
