#PrayingintheHolyGhost #Prayer #HolyGhost #TheRichWomanatShunem


Welcome to the Upper Room. Welcome to the House of God. 

Jacob saw angels ascending and descending at Bethel. He said, "this is the House of God." That is where this is. A place where angels ascend with our prayer offerings and descend with the answers thereof. Unto Him who answers prayers shall all flesh truly come. We come will hearts full of faith to the house of our Father. Our Father is calling and we are coming. Hallelujah! 

Let's pray.

St. Akin de Prayer.

Things That Follow Salvation (2/2):


There is more to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ than the mere salvation of our soul. His sacrifice also affords us a restoration, refreshing, renewal of our soul. [John 3:5, 8:32, 1:12, 10:10; Acts 3:19; Romans 12:2; James 1:21] He that the Son sets free is free indeed - Spirit, Soul, and Body. [John 8:36] Why are we focusing on one at the expense of the other.

None of our excuses hold water. They are simply baseless. I love the way C. S. Lewis puts it.

“Of all the tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under the omnipotent moral busybodies."

We have been blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places. [Ephesians 1:3; 2 Peter 1:3-4] God did not provide them to keep them there. He provided so we can lay claim, lay hold, and bring them into reality for use in this present life, on this side of eternity. It is not only the "Sweet By and By." I need God here, today, in the "Sweet, Now and Today."

He is not only the God of Heaven. He is the God of the Earth also. [Psalm 24:1]

Praying in the Holy Ghost with St. Akin de Prayer - R 3 W 6 D 2.

Hallelujah! 

Welcome to the Upper Room. 

"Yeah though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil." Why? His presence. That is what makes all the difference. He is my differentiator. When God is with me there is absolutely nothing I cannot face. NOTHING, meaning NOTHING in all of the Universe, visible and invisible, temporal or spiritual. 

The Father's presence is my differentiator. A time in the Upper Room is time to CULTIVATE His presence. You are welcome God's presence CULTIVATING EXPERIENCE. 

Let's pray. 

St. Akin de Prayer.

Disciplining is the Commissioning (1/2).


Disciplining is the Commissioning:

The great commission is commissioning for making disciples, but we have turned it on its head to achieve our own self glorying objectives. We are all about size, bigness, and number. We are fixated on quantity, not quality—membership rather than transformation. We have simply missed Christ, and we are all about blowing our own trumpets.

Instead of waking up to what is wrong, we are busy further digging ourselves in. We work tirelessly, trying to protect our own vain names and legacy while off track from the master's mandate. Not being able to prosper in the spirit, we are all about patching things up. Aiden Wilson Tozer, the American Christian pastor, author, magazine editor, and spiritual mentor, rightly deciphers the situation. 

He wrote,

“Religion today is not transforming people; rather it is being transformed by the people. It is not raising the moral level of society; it is descending to society’s own level and congratulating itself that it has scored a victory because society is smilingly accepting its surrender.” ― A.W. Tozer.

What a shame. Thanks, be to God; all is not lost yet. Christ's hands are ever extended out to us. He bids us come. He knocks at the door of our hearts if only we will let Him in. He wants to come in and have fellowship. He longs for koinonia. [Revelation 3:20] On our own, we can do nothing. Only in and with Him are we made whole and can begin to fulfill the purpose. [John 15:5]

Praying in the Holy Ghost with St. Akin de Prayer - R 3 W 6 D 1..



#PrayingintheHolyGhost #Prayer #HolyGhost  


Wow! Another week, another day in the Upper Room. 

I can do this forever. I love coming to the Upper Room. My heart longs for God like the deer longs for water. I am hungry for God and don't want to ever be satisfied. I just want to keep drink and eating of Him. He is my all. Lord, I hunger for you. I hunger for your righteousness. I hunger for your kingdom. I hunger for your will. I hunger for your purpose. Reign God in my life and in my environment. Your kingdom come. Let your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. You've got a soldier in me. 

Let's pray. 

St. Akin de Prayer.

Choose Life (Part Fifty-One): Drink From the Waters (Part Six)

Lay Down Your Heavy Burden
Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?  
― John 5:5-6, NKJV
We continue this week with the story of the sick man healed at the Pool of Bethesda. [John 5:1-15].
