The Waiting Kind: “Innocent Blood”

We as believers don’t like to think of the pain of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross and His shed blood –

BUT, as Christians we need to be regularly reminded of the powerful saving grace of God that we have received by faith through Jesus and the price He paid for us with His life.

It is good for us to remember His love! Let us never take it for granted…

This is a beautiful song – enjoy! (I love seeing people use their God given talents for the Lord.)

God bless you,

P.S. “Innocent Blood” is on the album “In the Land of Hope” by The Waiting Kind and can be downloaded on amazon.

Abundant Living – 7 Success Tips to Guide Your Journey of Life and Journey to Heaven!

Abundant Living – 7 Success Tips to Guide Your Journey of Life and Journey to Heaven!

Soar In The High Places of God

Abundant Living Journey to HeavenAbundant living on earth is a choice we can all make.

An abundant eternal life is also a choice.

God has prepared a great plan of prosperity for us and now it is up to us to reach out and receive by faith.

As a Christian; life is not a ‘try it out and see what happens’.

It takes faith to become a Christian and faith to live the Christian journey of life.

7 Guiding Success Tips for Abundant Living:

1.)  Allow the Spirit of God to Reveal – Let the Spirit of God help you know what has been freely given to us. God reveals to us by His Spirit; the things He prepared for those who love Him. (1 Corinthians 2:9-10, 12)

2.)  Live a Life of Excellence – Be determined to live a life of excellence and go all the way up the mountain! Don’t live a mediocre life and be content to only go half-way.

3.)  Get in The Word – It is the Word of God that gets on us and in us that creates success. Get in the Word and do what it says and your journey will become prosperous and you will have good success in life. (Joshua 1:8)

4.)  Catch the Vision – Be a person of vision and dare to do things others aren’t willing to try. Have an eye of an eagle to see a far off. Living by faith requires using our spiritual vision to see what has not yet manifested in the natural. Wait on God to get your vision. (Habakkuk 2:1-2)

5.)  Understand Your True Identity – Know who you are, the authority you have, and the promises made available to you because you are in Christ. There are over 130 “In Him” and “In Christ” verses in the Bible that help you with this. Dig them out and discover what you have been missing!

6.)  Live in Victory – Have wings to soar like an eagle above the storms that come. Overcome the accuser by the testimony of the blood of Jesus in your life. Submit yourself to God and resist the devil to make him flee from you. (Revelation 12:11, James 4:7)

7.)  Pray Always – Be a person of prayer. Build yourself up spiritually before you do anything. And in everything we do it should be by prayer. (Philippians 4:6)

Why not choose to live in the high places of God? God wants His children to have the very best.

Your journey on earth and your journey to heaven can be thrilling! Do not settle for anything less than the very best. 

And don’t be fooled; wishing and hoping does NOT result in blessings.

Bottom line: God’s dealings with people are always based on covenant. Discover what belongs to you and claim your inheritance by opening The Book, praying, and listening to God. God will let you know what to do. Just call on Him and act on His Word by faith and enjoy abundant living.

May your journey of life be filled with growing prosperity!

Soar higher,

If You Are Battling to Hang on – Don’t Quit!
There is a God Who Wants to Help!

I know this video skit is popular and you may have already watched it, but it is worth viewing again…

We have an enemy in this world. We are not ignorant of that. But just remember we have help available.

I encourage you … whatever battle you are going through – Don’t Give Up! Keep fighting!

Cry out to The Living God and He will help. Ask His forgiveness. There is nothing anyone has done that the blood Jesus paid on the cross can’t wash away and make as white as snow. Put your trust in Jesus. In Him is the power to overcome and be victorious!


“Behold, I give to you power to tread on serpants and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”  — Luke 10:19


“Bless the Lord, you His angels, that excel in strength, that do His commandments, hearkening unto the voice of His Word.” — Psalm 103:20


“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” — Jeremiah 29:11

God loves you! 🙂 And Jesus too!

God bless you,

P.S. The enemy tried to take my life, but The Living God pulled me out of the pit and makes me stand victorious! That is why I know He can do the same for you . . . and I know He will do for my daughters who I see the enemy attacking . . . don’t fight your battles alone, keep crying out to The Living God for help!

Faith in the Blood of Jesus

Faith in the Blood of Jesus Video

There is Power in the Blood

“Faith in His blood is the power and the vehicle that launches the believer into the very presence of God.”  Mark Hankins

I ran across this old song the other day and wanted to share.

“There is not one thing in me that the Blood doesn’t cleanse.”  Smith Wigglesworth

“…The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin, 1 John 1:7. The blood in your body circulates from head to toe every 23 seconds. The blood carries life itself. It carries in the nutrients you need to live and it also carries out the garbage. The blood of Jesus circulates throughout the Body of Christ. We need one another. We need to be assembled together and we need to fellowship with other believers (Hebrews 10:25). There is some assembly required. I feel sorry for people who think they can make it on their own. We need other strong believers to fellowship with around the Word of God. Then the blood of Jesus circulates and takes care of life and health for us.”  Excerpt from Mark Hankins book Taking Your Place In Christ.

The subheading of his book is Understanding Your Identity & Inheritance In Him. I’ve been studying a lot of Mark Hankins teachings since his recent visit to our church a few weeks ago. He has a great way of mixing humor with his messages that are really powerful! I highly recommend checking out his resources…

God bless you,

What Gives Us the Right to Enter God’s Presence?

What Gives Us the Right to Enter God’s Presence?

We enjoyed guest ministers, Mark and Trina Hankins, last night at our church. They’ll actually be ministering to us three nights in a row.

They taught on what seems to be a taboo message that freaks people out a little. And frankly, I think the only reason that is, is because it’s not talked about enough. The blood of Jesus.

Mark Hankins taught on the things connected and associated with the power that is available in the blood that Jesus paid on the cross. His main reference was in Hebrews 10:19-22 and how because of the blood we can boldly access the throne of God.

We have boldness to enter into the Holiest by the blood of Jesus. Hebrews 10:19

The price Jesus paid covers more than forgiveness & our salvation. The blood also pays for freedom from a sin consciousness and freedom from the curse (such as poverty, sickness, and depression). Our faith in the blood is the currency that pays for these freedoms.

What Christ did is perfect and the blood alone has done everything. Perfect.

But our access to it (which is by faith) can be imperfect.

In the Old Testament only the high priest was able to enter the throne room and he did it in fear. We now have a better covenant and not only have access to the Holiest, but we are told to go boldly.

Our conscious (inner voice, reminding us of past sins) can shut down our heart and keep us from entering into the presence of God. Our heart needs to be open to fully move into His presence.

It’s the blood of Jesus and the Holy Spirit working together that opens up our heart and has a magnetic like pull to take us into the presence of God.

Hebrews 10:22 tells us to draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith.

Have unshakeable assurance that God, our Father, is eager to see us. When we show up He is happy to see us.  :0) He wants to fellowship with us!

God wants us to draw near to him, but we have to do the “drawing near”. Mark Hankins reminded us that God has not moved. We are the ones who have drawn back.

We are to go boldly to the throne of God to obtain mercy and grace for help in time of need (Heb 4:16). If we don’t get bold and go, we’ll continue to carry our own burdens. And we have to be bold; because the devil is doing everything he can to distract us!

Like any will, that is only available to the inheritors after a death, God’s will in the New Testament became available after the death of Jesus.

The apostle Paul says that as believers we have a massive inheritance! Everything He gave to Jesus is ours. Equal possession with equal position.

If the enemy can hinder us to take our position, he can take our possession.

You have to take your position to take your possession and prosper. Open your heart to the fellowship of the Father. And don’t be satisfied with an intellectual relationship.

God is our Father. He wants and desires us to come to Him. He wants to fellowship and have a close relationship with us. And because of the price Jesus paid we have the right to be in the presence of God.

How do we know if we have been in His presence? If we have joy.

You cannot access His presence without being changed and come out with joy. In His presence is the fullness of joy!

I pray that we all may purpose to spend more time in His life changing presence!

God bless you,
