As ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. KJV Matthew 10:7 -- I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. KJV Matthew 16:19 -- Ye are come … unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, KJV Hebrews 12:22 On my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: KJV Acts 2:18 -- That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. KJV 1 Corinthians 2:5 --

Pastor's Corner


Do you know what spirit you are of? Have you done any discerning today? Are your eyes open to know good and evil?

If EVE had paid attention to how subtle the beast was being, instead of looking at her cravings and feelings, she might have been able to overcome the deceiver. While she was wrapped up with what SHE WANTED, she was blinded by what Satan was manipulating her into. She ended in judgement for disobedience; a judgment that could have been avoided by discerning the spirit first.

If MOSES had been paying attention to the spirit that was behind pushing the crowd, instead of just being pressured into frustration by the crowd, he would have never struck the rock twice. He ended up on Mt. Nebo and not in the promised land because he allowed his feelings to push him into disobedience.

If SAMPSON had been praying instead of playing perhaps he could have looked into the eyes of his temptation and seen the spirit in Delilah’s eyes. He lost his eyes, not just his powers, in a moment of time because he did not try the spirit. When he thought he was safest is when Satan struck the swiftest.

If PETER had been yielding to humility instead of to honor, duty, and self-strength, perhaps he would have seen what happened to the face of Judas the betrayer as the serpent slipped into his soul and caused him to depart the salvation supper. He could have seen the seed of his own upcoming fall if he had discerned the spirit of wisdom in his Master who warned him. Side by side at that supper sat two spirits; the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. He denied his Lord thrice because he was so sure of his own heart; not knowing that the spirit of evil intrudes thoughts that exalt themselves against the knowledge of Christ.

Lastly, what of Balaam the prophet? He was close enough to the Lord God to hear His voice clearly. He was experienced enough to know when the prophecy was of the Lord. He was strong enough to overcome the direct objections of Balak who tempted him. Yet he fell to the most common of all the temptations of the demonic spirit. He fell on the scripture that says, "YOU CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MAMMON". He traded his closeness to the Lord for the communion of a wealthy man. Had he discerned that evil sometimes comes in good packages then he might have not ended his life with a javelin in his belly. He died at the hands of the nation that he had prophetically blessed while under the spirit of God.

Take time today to pray that your eyes be enlightened that your whole being be filled with light! It will save you!
