I Am Able

Teresa Seputis

Child of Mine, what are you trusting in? Are you trusting in your own ability, or are you trusting in Me? I am faithful and I am true. I alone am fully dependable. You can trust Me and you can depend on Me.

Many of you say with your mouths that you trust Me, but you live as though you do not. You allow your thinking and your vision to be driven by what is feasable, given your current circusmstances, rather than by what I desire to do. Allow Me to expand your vision beyond the constrants of the feasable.. beyond the constraints of your own abilities. Watch and see what I can do, for I am the Lord God almighty, and I am not constrained by present circumstances. I am not limited by the things that limit man. I am able to accomplish whatever I purpose in My heart to do. I am able to provide resources where there is no potential of resources.

I am able to expand your vision to match Mine -- to give you eyes to see as I see and a heart to percieve as I percieve. Child of Mine, if you will look to Me and trust Me, I will expand your vision to match Mine. I will take away human limitations and I will glorify My name through you.

However, you must understand that I am talking of My agenda, and not of your own desires or of your own comfort. I am not going to increase your vision for your own personal gain, but that My name may be glorified and that My kingdom may be expanded. For I will glorify My name across the face of the earth and I will cause My Son to be lifted up that men may turn to Him and be saved. This is My goal and this is My agenda, that the nations may know My Son, that they may enter into personal relationship with Me and that they might be saved and set free from the oppression of the enemy.

Child of Mine, know that I am faithful. Know that I am all powerful. And know that I am able and willing to manifest My glory in your life and through you as you submit to Me.

Are You Ready?

Karen Velez

You ask me to come as I did in the book of Acts, but are you ready? Do you really know what you are asking? Are you ready for me to turn your world upside down for the Kingdom of God? Are you ready to go to the highways and byways seeking that which is lost? Are you ready to leave your safe little worlds and go out into all the world? Are you ready to be dangerous to the enemy?

Yes, I long to give you what you ask for, but first you must be ready. I teach and train, I mold and shape -- I prepare you for the great calling to which you all are called. Before you ask this of me, ask yourselves if you are ready to receive it.

For I tell you when the wind of the Spirit blows it can come as a gentle breeze or a mighty whirlwind. Examine your hearts, for I tell you truly the glory of the Lord is about to cover this earth as the waters cover the sea. And yes, each one of you who is willing will be sent out to minister the gospel with signs and wonders following. What I will do through you will be so great that not even the Apostles dreamed of seeing this in such a magnitude.

And then the Lord will come, and yes He will surely come. And yes, He He will come in power and majesty. So I ask you, are you ready for My glory to come? Examine yourselves, examine your hearts, examine your motives carefully -- for I will share my glory with no man. And if you say yes, be prepared for the process. I will put you through purification. Yes, you will go through the fire of my furnace to purify you, but in the end you will be fit and as pure gold.

So examine your hearts. Seek my face, not merely my hand. For I long to reveal my heart to each of you and indeed all of my creation. Can I trust you with my heart? Does your heart beat as mine does? Do you weep as I do over all those who are lost and turning their back on my cross? I long to reach them, I long to love them and I am asking you to love them enough to break forth and reach the world.

Are you ready?
Are you willing?
Will you go?

Each of you must ask that of yourselves. Some you will go to your neighborhoods, others to nations. Neither one is more important than the other; both are equally vital. My creation needs to hear that I love them and that I died for them and rose again that they may live. So go, feed the hungry, heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons.

Take my commandment seriously. It was the last one I gave before I went to be with My Father. And I meant what I said and I gave you authority to do this, and the anointing to do it. So I say to you that I dearly love you or I would not ask you "are you ready?" because I am about to give you what you have longed for. You will see My glory with your eyes. For this indeed is the generation that will see my return with great glory. So go and seek what is lost. They do not know how short their time is. Behold I return quickly.;be about my father's business. Have your vessels full of oil, the bridegroom cometh.

Elijah's Journey

Ching Co

This message is for God's people who are waiting on the Lord this season.

From the moment Elijah gave the prophetic word to King Ahab (1 Kings 17:1), to the time where we found him on top of Mount Carmel bent down to the ground between his knees (1 Kings 18:41). His journey had taken many years and he had faced many challenges and difficulties. He has to wait, to hide, to run, to trust God for his provisions, to come face to face with his enemy, to stand alone.

SPIRITUAL PARALLEL Many of God's people in their quest to follow and pursue God's call in their lives had to walked the same path that Elijah took. Your journey too had been long and filled with many obstacles . Like Elijah, those past years you had to learn to wait, to trust God, to wrestle with your enemy , to die to yourself, to face persecution . You felt like everything within you has been sucked out from you and there is no more energy left that you can give out.

"DONT GIVE UP" Today as you stand on top of your own Mount Carmel. Down on your knees, waiting for God to give you a sign. Like Elijah who had to command his servant seven times before he saw a cloud as small as a man's hand rising from the sea. So the Lord is saying to you , "Do not give up."


I felt the Holy Spirit challenging us that this is the season to shift to the gear of THANKSGIVING.


No matter how things looked outwardly. Even when the vision you've been waiting for seem farthest from you. Even if everything around you is in turmoil. Even when your own love ones don't believe in you anymore. Even when all things seem loss. God message to you this day " Don't be distracted by them."


Let us use THANKSGIVING as a weapon of warfare. And let us continue to press in with a thankful heart as we wait for God to move on our behalf. Let us set our heart and mind on God. On His nature and His character. On His Power, His Glory and His Might. On His love and His compassion. On His heart towards us which is for good and not for evil.


You've done your part. Now allow the Lord to do His part for you.


Like Job, let our heart cry today be "The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.(Job 1:21)Though He slay me, yet will I hope in Him (Job 13:15)"

He who sacrifice thank offerings honors me, and he prepares the way so that I may show him the salvation of God. (Psalm 50:23)

Portals Of Glory

Pat Cocking

I saw portals of glory opening in the heavens over many specific locations in the earth. Beneath the portals were individuals and groups of believers who were completely focussed on the face of Jesus and His Kingdom. Their attention was heavenward. They were postured in faith and in unity to contend for the manifestation of the Lordīs glory in the earth. Colossians 3:1-4 came to mind.

Golden Ladders
I saw what seemed like golden ladders connecting the locations in the earth to the portals in heaven. Angels and believers were ascending and descending while releasing heavenly glory into the earthly realm. I had the understanding that the Lord was making His people aware of their ability to embrace the glories of heaven and to see them manifested in the earth through visitation and prayer.

Colours, Gold, Signs, Wonders
In the vision there was a clear release of various colours from the throne room coming into the earth. The colours represented various dimensions and aspects of the Lordīs nature and blessing. I saw various shades of purple, blue, green, red, orange, and many other streams of brilliant coloured light literally visiting Godīs people. As the light touched them, the essence of what that colour represented was imparted to the one receiving. These colours somehow speak of Godīs covenant blessings and commitment and are in reference to the rainbow over the throne. (Revelation 4:3; Ez 1:28; Rev 10:1)

I also saw gold falling like rain out of heaven. The Lord impressed upon me that great wealth and provision will come with the manifestation of the glory. For those who look for His face, who long for His glory, they will be poured out upon by divine provision. Haggai 1 and 2 came to mind.

Signs and wonders of every kind were also being released. Things that eye has not seen and ear has not heard and neither has entered into the heart of man will soon be revealed by the Spirit of Glory. Many will stand in awe of what the Lord will do through the manifestation of His dunamis power. Acts 2:17-21

Faith is the Connector
Faith was the key to opening the portals of glory. The Lord is looking for those who will stand in faith on the truth of His Word believing Him for the manifestation of His glory in this hour. All things are possible, only believe. He is looking for operative faith in His church. Faith in Him is His landing strip for manifestation. Unbelief, mockery and slander will be enemies of the coming move of His glory.

The Children
In the vision, I saw children ascending into realms of glory and receiving insight, revelation and empowerment in the presence of the Lord. Jesus is going to raise up a generation of young child evangelists who will release through simple child-like faith, the reality of the heavenly realm in power and authority. He is visiting children with great outpourings of the glory and capturing their hearts affections.

Prayer and Repentance
Prayer and Repentance will be keys in releasing the glory. When Jesus was baptized, he actually identified with manīs sin and repented for us through the act of water baptism. When he fulfilled that act of righteousness, "the heavens were opened...."(Matthew 3:16) The Lord is calling His people to focussed prayer and personal as well as identificational repentance (see Matthew 3; Daniel 9,10; Nehemiah 1) in order to "open the heavens".

Shine Upon You

Fred Kelly

For I shine upon you says the Lord, I pour out upon you, for the light that I pour upon you is My love, and as I pour it upon you, My love, My light disperses the darkness that is around you. For I have called you to be My people, says the Lord. And I call you unto Myself and I draw you, I draw you unto Me as a magnet would draw iron unto itself. For I love you, and as I pour forth My light upon you. The heat of My light will generate within your spirit a newness and a freshness. For does it not take the light of the sun to cause the plants to grow and to reach toward the sky? And the nourishment that they receive from the rains that comes from heaven. Those things that I have placed in the ground says the Lord, causes them to grow and to become strong, says the Lord, causes them to grow and I say this day I pour forth into you, Myself, My light and of My Word and of My love and I rain down upon you in a mighty and glorious way that you will be strengthened and encouraged to walk forth in My presence says the Lord.

Because of My love for you and your love for Me, We shall go forth in the power and the presence of My Spirit, Not in your spirit, but in Mine, says God. For I have called a people that will be strong in Me. I have called a people that will declare the boldness of My name throughout all the earth. I have called a people that shall be a light upon the earth, says the Lord.

For have I not said in My word, not to hide a light under a bushel? For no one can see it. For I say to you let that light that I pour down within you to shine forth and disperse the darkness round about you. I said also in My word that everywhere that you go, I go with you, for I never leave you nor forsake you says the Lord. I will give you the strength and boldness of logic to step forth and to go strong into the presence of the world to declare My name, and as you declare it says God, there shall be many that come to know Me, because of your faith and your joy in Me, says the Lord.

And that joy strengthens you, and gives you all that you need. So reach unto Me, and allow Me to touch, and let My light shine upon you. For it is by the blood of My Son, that you have life, and I've given it to you, in an abundant way, take a hold says God, and go forth with it in My name.

Thoughts On The Living Body Of Jesus Christ

by Renee

Here is a Revolutionary Thought....that we are all one Body in Jesus Christ...Yes, many have said this-most of us have said this quite often. But as long as we have factions, & judge others as seperate based on slight doctrinal issues, personalities, or different callings/anointings, we will not experience that oneness & flow of the Body of Christ.(Or, even if we cut ourselves off from one who falls into error, when they need prayer, love & help, not condemnation. I have fallen into both error & sin at times.)

No one ministry (or, Body part) will ever do it all,or be it all & when man sets himself up as a little king instead of God, he gets in trouble. Even Paul said, "Follow me as I follow Christ"...But, how would people know to follow & when not to follow? By seeking after God for themselves, & by being open to whereever however Jesus wants to Express or Impart His Life & truth. But some were saying, "I am of Paul", while others were saying, "I am of Apollos"...They had set themselves up as different TEAMS...& Paul said that this was wrong! But, oh how this is done today! Paul says to do this is to walk "as mere men"!!In other words, the Divine life we have in us is Beyond "only human"; it is Divine. The Divine Anointing Testifies to our being One in the Holy Spirit. That each member is Alive with that Life, so long as it is not Blocked.(More on that later.)

We are meant to be a habitation of the Spirit, a house/temple fitly joined together with each part suppllying it's own strength, which resides not only in giftings, but in LOVE-THE PRESENCE OF GOD RELEASED IN LOVE, releases the power of God, just as much as if not more than, any prophetic or apostolic gift , pastoral or evengelistic gift, if the minister destroys what they build, thru lack of Love...OOOPS!!! So, you may be the "ear & mouth" but, if you don't have Love, behold your clanking-it is irritating & like Chinese water torture, even!!-lol...& you may be a mere thigh-But if your muscle is FIT, you pump Nourishing Blood to the mouthpieice & ear, helping them come out of their stuper....LOL!


1HOWEVER, BRETHREN, I could not talk to you as to spiritual [men], but as to nonspiritual [men of the flesh, in whom the carnal nature predominates], as to mere infants [in the new life] in Christ [[1] unable to talk yet!] 2I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not yet strong enough [to be ready for it]; but even yet you are not strong enough [to be ready for it], 3For you are still [unspiritual, having the nature] of the flesh [under the control of ordinary impulses]. For as long as [there are] envying and jealousy and wrangling and factions among you, are you not unspiritual and of the flesh, behaving yourselves after a human standard and like mere (unchanged) men? 4For when one says, I belong to Paul, and another, I belong to Apollos, are you not [proving yourselves] ordinary (unchanged) men? 5What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Ministering servants [not heads of parties] through whom you believed, even as the Lord appointed to each his task: 6I planted, Apollos watered, but God [all the while] was making it grow and [He] gave the increase. 7So neither he who plants is anything nor he who waters, but [only] God Who makes it grow and become greater. 8He who plants and he who waters are equal (one in aim, of the same importance and esteem), yet each shall receive his own reward (wages), according to his own labor. 9For we are fellow workmen (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God; you are God's [2] garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, [you are] God's building.(1) 10According to the grace (the special endowment for my task) of God bestowed on me, like a skillful architect and master builder I laid [the] foundation, and now another [man] is building upon it. But let each [man] be careful how he builds upon it, 11For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is [already] laid, which is Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). 12But if anyone builds upon the Foundation, whether it be with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13The work of each [one] will become [plainly, openly] known (shown for what it is); for the day [of Christ] will disclose and declare it, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test and critically appraise the character and worth of the work each person has done. 14If the work which any person has built on this Foundation [any product of his efforts whatever] survives [this test], he will get his reward. 15But if any person's work is burned up [under the test], he will suffer the loss [of it all, losing his reward], though he himself will be saved, but only as [one who has passed] through fire.(2) 16Do you not discern and understand that you [the whole church at Corinth] are God's temple (His sanctuary), and that God's Spirit has His permanent dwelling in you [to be at home in you, [3] collectively as a church and also individually]? 17If anyone [4] does hurt to God's temple or corrupts it [[5] with false doctrines] or destroys it, God will [6] do hurt to him and bring him to the corruption of death and destroy him. For the temple of God is holy (sacred to Him) and that [temple] you [[7] the believing church and its individual believers] are. 18Let no person deceive himself. If anyone among you supposes that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool [let him discard his worldly discernment and recognize himself as dull, stupid, and foolish, without true learning and scholarship], that he may become [really] wise.(3) 19For this world's wisdom is foolishness (absurdity and stupidity) with God, for it is written, He lays hold of the wise in their [own] craftiness;(4) 20And again, The Lord knows the thoughts and reasonings of the [humanly] wise and recognizes how futile they are.(5) 21So let no one exult proudly concerning men [boasting of having this or that man as a leader], for all things are yours, 22Whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas (Peter), or the universe or life or death, or the immediate and [8] threatening present or the [subsequent and uncertain] future--all are yours, 23And you are Christ's, and Christ is God's. 1 Corinthians 3 :: Amplified Bible (AMP)
