Developing Your Spirit Man – Enriching Your Relationship with God

Developing Your Spirit Man – Enriching Your Relationship with God

I trust that the Master has lifted you this week and you are now ready to JUMPSTART your journey towards developing the new you! Last week, I introduced you to this concept of complete healing and restoration by focusing on the total composition of man – spirit, soul and body. Well this week, we are going to start off by hitting the topic of the spirit head on! This part of the composition of who you are is the most vital aspect, and the first place you should start when working to create the EXTRAORDINARY LIFE! So, if you’re like most of us, you’re wondering, “Where do I start…what is my first step in developing my spirit man?” The first step is understanding that you are in fact a spirit being! Genesis chapter 2:7 says… “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Now, this verse as well reflects the triune or three in one nature of man. Notice the three elements once again. It says that He formed the dust of the ground. This is the natural element of man – his body. And it says that man became a living soul. He became self-aware with his own thinking, feeling, and choosing. But, we cannot overlook the middle portion. Look at it again… and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life. The word “breath” in the original language also means spirit. Now if we were to read this verse again with this understanding, it would sound like… “The...
Become All That God Has Destined You To Be

Become All That God Has Destined You To Be

I am blessed to have the opportunity each and every week to bring powerhouse guests to you through my television program! I believe 1onONE is a divinely inspired platform God has given me to empower and strengthen the Body of Christ to become all that God has destined us to be. I also believe the broadcast is a vessel to get God-inspired principles to the masses, and reach the teenager, the CEO and everyone in between. Why do I believe this is so important? Because, I know with all of my heart that God does not want any of us living short of who we are called to be or having all that we are supposed to have. That is what I call the extraordinary life. Anyone can live ordinary these days…living in financial lack, having health problems or not having peace in your soul is ordinary. But, if you are reading this post, that is NOT the life God has for you. Trust me, I know what it’s like to live ORDINARY; experiencing what everyone else is going through. But, one day I grew beyond frustrated, being sick, not having God’s best, struggling each and every day, and questioning what my purpose in life was. It was in this dark season that I experienced what can only be described as a God moment. I began to realize that no matter how much I exercised, no matter how much I prayed, how much money I made, or how much I tried to not get upset, I would never experience the great life I so desperately wanted. God began to show...
Hitting A Wall

Hitting A Wall

Several years ago, I decided to hire a voice coach. I only went once, because I was so discouraged after my first lesson. I walked in thinking I was “the man”, but by the time she was finished with me, I was frustrated. I convinced myself it wasn’t worth going because the drive was too long, but I have to admit I was also nervous, perhaps because I deep down, I was convinced I wouldn’t be good enough. In my first session, the song we worked on was Kyrie by Mr. Mister. I could hit all of the notes except for one. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t hit the note. We continued that first session by doing additional exercises where she would ask me to test my range, and would push me beyond what I was able to do. I grew frustrated. What I didn’t realize was that while I was hitting a wall, she was trying to push me beyond it. The children of Egypt experienced the same thing, whether it was facing the Red Sea or coming out of the desert facing the Jordan. In both circumstance, they “hit a wall”. A wall of water that stood between where they were and where they needed to go. A wall that confined them from their destiny. God creates each and every one of us with so much potential, so many different talents and abilities, but many of us have buried this potential beneath a pile of doubt and worldly lies. We hit the walls life slams down before us, unconvinced they can be broken down....
Host the Presence of God

Host the Presence of God

There is a scripture that I see all of the time and yet, it wasn’t until recently that God revealed to me a deeper revelation. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. – Ezekiel 36:27 You see, God has put His Spirit WITHIN us! That’s powerful, that means we are truly hosting the presence of God What would happen to your life and the lives of those around us if we were more aware of the revelation knowledge that we are hosts to the presence of God? It would be like enjoying His voice, His goodness, and His mercy every moment of your life! It didn’t seem like a life like this is possible; well, until I met my new friends, John and Heidi White! You see, John and Heidi are the executive producers of a groundbreaking, audio-visual experience called The Presence. They have made it their life’s work to teach and train people how to host the presence of God. The Presence is a breathtaking presentation full of music, insight, and revelation designed to equip sons and daughters to experience God’s presence all of the time by highlighting men and women — all around the world and from all walks of life — who are living daily in His Presence and experiencing the wonder and friendship of the Holy Spirit. Everyone can have a deeper and more abiding relationship with God. His presence is what helps us through the trials, struggles, and storms of life so we can have the joy and peace...
The End Times — Are They Upon Us?

The End Times — Are They Upon Us?

We are living in what many are calling the last days. It seems like everywhere you look, the world is in chaos. When you turn on the TV, you see images of wars, suffering, and struggle. It’s like we’re standing on the edge of the abyss, and what we can’t yet see leaves us searching for answers. I want to tell you right now that you don’t need to live in fear of what’s to come. The Day of the Lord is at Hand, written by Benjamin Baruch, is a divinely-inspired book that gives instruction on God’s deliverance plan and the part we all have to play in it. It’s more than just revelation on what’s to come — The Day of the Lord is at Hand will also prepare you with insight, understanding, and strategy on how to walk in victory with God. His book is your guidebook to revealing the times we’re living in, what it is we’re looking for, and how God is trying to change the matters of our heart. He is moving and active, and time will reveal what’s He’s doing on a personal and global level. In The Day of the Lord is at Hand, Benjamin Baruch pinpoints the start of the last days, gives his interpretation of sealed prophecies, and he identifies the Antichrist! Even if the idea of the last days seems frightening to you, you can’t ignore or hide from what’s going on all around us. It’s time to get into alignment with God’s end-time strategy, because when you put God at the center of you and all you do, things will...
The Blood of Jesus Will Free You!

The Blood of Jesus Will Free You!

Do you understand the significance of the blood of Jesus? It gives life. It cleanses you of your sins, heals you, and enables you to overcome the works of the enemy. It sanctifies you and brings you closer to God. Every favor, benefit, and blessing we receive is because of the blood of Christ. Think, for a moment, about your own natural blood. It supplies nutrients and oxygen to every part of your body and cleanses wastes and toxins from your cells. Spiritually speaking, the blood of Jesus does the same thing by supplying peace, understanding, deliverance, and healing. The blood shed by Christ is not just a historical event that happened 2,000 years ago. It’s for today, and for all of us! That’s why Evangelist Tommy Combs has written a revelatory book, called This Blood’s For You: 39 Stripes for Your Salvation, Healing, and More. I’m telling you – I was blown away by all that the blood can do! This book contains 39 chapters for 39 stripes, each detailing what the blood shed by Christ can do in your life. The Bible does not say you are going to be healed. It says you were healed. It’s already done!!! Despite your circumstances, your diagnoses, or anything else, God’s Word says you have already been healed. When you ask, believe, and receive, you will have peace, joy, freedom, and health. Pleading the blood of Jesus is a heaven-given resource to releasing God’s power in your life. Listen, I encourage you to watch the complete 1onONE interview I did with Evangelist Tommy Combs. He shared so much wisdom and...
