Just heard a few minutes shy of 2hrs of Kenneth Copeland teaching Universal Reconciliation from 20yrs ago & fully realized that absolutely all Word of Faith preachers have always taught Universal Reconciliation, that it's central to the Word of Faith message & is NEVER contradicted by Word of Faith preachers. Got a fresh stirring about the fact that Universal Reconciliation is ENTIRELY DIFFERENT from Universal Restoration. Have insisted upon that for nearly a decade & have always deeply despised the term "Universal Reconciliation" wondering what nitwit came up with that term, because Universal Reconciliation has been taught even by perhaps 50% of the Charismatics from day #1.
The problem ISN'T with ...

Exercised my faith on my specific marriage covenant with my wife & got caught up into heaven & saw a warehouse bigger than I'd ever seen, totally stuffed with marriage provisions from our wonderful heavenly Father! You've got supernatural provisions for your marriages like you've never ever seen -- all waiting on you and yours to tap into them together with your faith on the foundation your spouse and you have before our Lord for being with each other! Grab your marriage license together and over the communion table exercise your faith that came from Him THE MOMENT you said "I do" and EXPECT an ABSOLUTE AVALANCHE of God's best for your marriages, in the Name of Jesus! Your marriage license IS your ...

Being in the will of God is as easy as doing the Scriptures. Those are our General Orders that apply to every single believer. You act on THAT 'til you get a Commissioned position. Some people never do anything, not so much as a single verse of the Bible, claiming they don't want to do anything but what God tells them, and God assigns their portion with the guy that buried his talent. It took Lord Jesus 30yrs to get into the Commissioned Will of God for Himself. 'Til that time, He obeyed the Scriptures. If it took Lord Jesus 30yrs to get into a specific Will of God for Himself, then most people may never have more that's required of them beyond what's Written. We fill our time on Biblical ...

I was praying on the phone with someone, during the overnight hours, one summer night in 2009 & we were both kind of nodding in & out a little, though I was going on strongly in other tongues for the most part. Caught myself saying something aloud about regenerating, which I later found out was from a scene of a Doctor Who episode that I hadn't gotten to see YET 'cause they hadn't shown it on my local PBS station, and I didn't have access to cable at the time. I'd bumped into a few Doctor Who clips on YouTube at the time, but not that particular one. I'd gotten to see the full episode of The Doctor's Daughter, the full episode of when The Doctor met Martha while they were on the moon,...

The drunkenness actually encouraged by some Rabbis at Purim is more akin to wedding celebration. I "get" the layer of the story about deliverance, but too many elements to the celebrations seem like a Jewish Valentine's Day(s). As much as it's about deliverance, seems as though it's the celebration of when a King won the heart of his bride. After so much meditation in Esther, I want to see Matt Crouch's movie again, "One Night With The King." As much as it's the celebration of deliverance, vindication, and restoration of respect, story DOES SEEM as though it marks the time when she was with him because she wanted to be. I'd previously thought TBN might of gone a little far with the story book ...

I've noticed over the last 20.5yrs that I stay as filled with the Spirit; as "prayed through" if I'll say a sentence or two in other tongues every single 3 to 5 minutes of my day, or give thanks every 3 or 4 minutes of my day -- again, ever so briefly, but just consistently in that Spirit-consciousness as I have during those times that I've spent 12 to 18 hours in concentrated praying in other tongues or confession of the Word and thanksgiving or whatever other version of concentrated worship.
Last two years, I may be able to count how many times I've prayed a couple of hours or longer, straight through without interruptions, but I've always stayed consistently where I've needed to be by just giving ...

Every situation in my life where I not only couldn't be a Gentleman, but where being a Gentleman wasn't even a reclaimable/recyclable/regeneratable in the situation, I permanently quit, preferring to be a Gentleman than to have any job or any other situation in my life that isn't going to allow MINIMALLY MY "INTERNAL" tuxedo on 24/7. Always hurts deeply & I work for yrs to find something reclaimable in the situation, but when I finally realize a given people situation CAN'T EVER AGAIN, NO MATTER WHAT ever be in my life IN A REDEEMABLE CONTEXT WHERE I CAN be & progress as the equivalent of a Gentleman, and make the ""QUALITY DECISION"" about which there is no longer any argument and ...

Holy Spirit's been emphasizing all day what He's been emphasizing for 22yrs with me, though this is the first time I've had the words for it that I'm going to use, but they sum up everything I've said for 22yrs BEAUTIFULLY: Time for the Body of Christ to get out of Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles. Those were fulfilled AGES AGO and time to focus on those feasts that ARE our PRESENT & FUTURE: Purim & Chanukah. I was rereading in Esther a while ago & deeeply moved by the fact that it mentions at least twice that there wasn't a Gehazi in their midst. Plague fell on that nation and the spoil WASN'T TO BE TOUCHED because it belonged to Esther and Mordecai. Everything He's had me ...
