Unlocking the Spirit-Man Within

The month of March has launched TWC-NYC into another dimension of awareness. Unlocking the Spirit-Man Within has been revolutionary.

1 Thessalonians 5:23 makes it very clear that we are three dimensional beings and this clearly reflects Elohim himself in the 3 in 1 embodiment. Genesis 1:26 comes alive in light of this vantage point as we were made in His likeness and image. Viewing ourselves from these three perspectives becomes paramount in how we worship, function and interact with others in the earth realm.

Shmita Year 5775

During the month of January (the 13th month of 36 Months of Manifestation) I was made aware of an incredible Hebraic (scriptural) ordinance by the Holy Spirit. We are in the midst of The 7th Year Sabbath or the Shmita Year 5775 in the Hebrew calendar.

According to Deuteronomy 15:1-6 (one of many other scriptures) the announces a year of release to the people of G-d. A year that He will provide for His people and they will rest, relax, and be released from debt. It is a Sabbath that must be observed as a part of their trust and faith in Him.

The Spirit of Excellence

In this the 9th month of our 36 Months of Manifestation the Holy Spirit has given me the fruit of "excellence" as our focus for the month.
Daniel 6:1-3 speaks of the excellent spirit that Daniel possessed. His spirit of excellence distinguished him in such a way that Darius thought to set him above all of the realm. This spirit of excellence is the key to extraordinary living and participation in the kingdom (natural and spiritual).
I believe Daniel may have been influenced by Josiah's desire to bring excellence back to worship.

The Power of Expectation

In Romans 4 beginning at 13 the apostle Paul takes some time to describe the posture of Abraham as it related to the "promise" of being the father of many nations. In this portion of his writings, Paul contrast the law and the righteousness of faith in a way that helps us to understand that Abraham (who preceded the Law) attained the promise by faith and not by meeting the requirements of the law.
When Abraham was challenged by YHWH to believe that he and Sarah would bear a child, all of the natural circumstances were against that reality.

Moving from Manna to Maturity

During the month of July the Holy Spirit has directed us to concentrate our efforts and energy toward the fruit of maturity. We are in the 7th month of our 36 months of manifestation and each month we have an expectation that we will bear a different fruit. (Rev. 22:2)
With our focus on maturity we need to establish first that it is not an implication of immaturity but rather an expectation of further maturity. Maturity must be understood as complete growth, full development in body and mind, perfected, (and my favorite) having little or no potential for further growth or expansion.

Night Vision

Two weeks ago I shared this message at The Worship Center - NYC from Nehemiah 2:11-20 called "Night Vision."
As I was meditating on the value of vision as it relates to our world, it occurred to me that we don't just need vision, we need the ability to see when we are in a dark place and we need to perceive when others cannot see.
God reminded me that two years ago just before Jan. 2012, He spoke a word to me regarding the two year season we were entering. I recall that season as being very unpleasant and difficult for believers to get through.

The Ministry of the Forerunner

The Ministry (the Spirit) of the Forerunner
Luke 1:13-17; Matthew 11:12-14 (Malachi 3:1 & 4:5,6)
To be alive in the generation that experienced the transition of a millennium is a unique privilege. There are only a few people that get to see this and even fewer who understand it. 2 Peter 3:8 says that a day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as a day in the Lord. This means that we who are alive at this time experienced the dawning of a new day at the change of the millennium. In fact, we experienced the beginning of the third day since Christ and we know that according to biblical history that YHWH always moves on the third day.

Don't Let Anything Break Your Fellowship

Job chapters 1 & 2 documents some of the most horrific experiences ever endured by a human being, period. None of us are able to imagine what it must have felt like to endure multiple tragedies within a 24 hour period as Job did. Yet, we must recognize that a few peculiar things about that story that should be overwhelmingly encouraging to us today.
The first is the proper understanding and interpretation of the negative that happens in our lives from time to time. Job was not the object of G-d's humor.

"Rachel Don't Die!"

On this past Saturday the Holy Spirit gave a word of refreshing to the worshippers at The Worship Center - NYC. "Rachel Don't Die!" Using Genesis 30:1 & 35:16-20, we were encouraged to press through the pain a difficulty of childbirth to bring forth that which has been conceived in our inward being. Rachel was caught in a comparison trap when she saw Leah birthing children while she remained barren. This is were many in the church find themselves today. Looking at other churches, ministries, and ministers and making unhealthy comparisons to their own path and progress.
