Saints on Assignment (SOA): our assignment is to grow in the Lord, to mature as a son. Hopefully, none of you have had to travel as many miles as me on the “renewing your mind” highway. With my cerebral prowess, I assumed with enough scriptures, revelations, and encounters that I would be able to stand on my own as man in His kingdom. It took me awhile to realize that maturity is not about being independent but growing increasing dependent upon my Heavenly Father.
10In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].
11Put on God's whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.
Jesus gave a mini-teaching about forces in the world and describing why he is disrupting the kingdom of darkness. Three of the Gospels (Matt. 12: 28-30; Mark 3:26-28; Luke 11: 20-22] capture/retell this message. I like Luke’s rendering:
Luke 11:20-22 [Amplified Bible]
“20But if I drive out the demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has [already] come upon you.
21When the strong man, fully armed, [from his courtyard] guards his own dwelling, his belongings are undisturbed [his property is at peace and is secure].
22But when one stronger than he attacks him and conquers him, he robs him of his whole armor on which he had relied and divides up and distributes all his goods as plunder (spoil).”
As the Western calendar transitions from 2014 to 2015 and takes its place in the Hebraic year of 5775 --‐ I believe the mystery of "echad" will unfold as a personal revelation to every 'son of God candidate'.
Starting 1/01/2015, there will be a deeper, fuller ‘knowing’, understanding of John 14:20: "At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.” On “that day”, this knowing will not be acquired through mental prowess but received by all who are willing and open to His desire.
Good times during 5775 Succoth (Feast of Tabernacles) - I getting more and more aware that knowing, understanding, expecting 'amazing' stuff from and with our Father during His m'oed (appointed times) - is highly beneficial.
This is a Year of Awe!
Look and I will show you!
Look into the Unseen and I will provide understanding to the seen.
I will provide context to the "NOW" in the Nations.
Understanding is available from the High Place:
Sit in your throne and you will See, Know, and Understand
the present, past, and the future.
But remember in order to SEE, YOU MUST BELIEVE and
wait to See the Whole picture.
The more you Sit; the more you SEE!
1 I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me...
2 Corinthians 4:18
18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is
Ephesians 2:6 (Amplified Bible)
6And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together
[giving us [a]joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One).
"... For whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap. For he who sows to his own will from the flesh reap decay and ruin and destruction, but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life." Galatians 6:7,8

We are truly at LIBERTYwhen we are standing with and in the King.
2 Corinthians 3:17(AMP)
“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”
It does not matter if the enemy is present. Renew your mind!
There was a day when Liberty looked like the absence and the annihilation of the enemy. This is NOT that day!
Psalm 23:4-5 (AMP)
4 Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my [brimming] cup runs over.
This is the day that He is with us – so much so that we are now One!
Do you remember that Milton Bradley board game called, Operation?
This battery-operated game has been available since 1965. One night during service, I saw this game. Except it was not a “cartoon” being operated on, the body was me. Next to my body, I could see a list of different items that were to be removed from me:
