The Gift - Part 2 - David Mitts

“Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant:” (1Co 12:1) To listen to the audio-only version click below  Giving Opportunity Message   Last chapter, we began our conversation about the gift of God. We looked at the ancient Hebrew word for gift, Natan, which both begins and ends with a nun, the character for seed. In the middle is the tav, the symbol for the cross. From this picture, we realized that the gift we carry is one that begins with God and is completed through the cross. The cross represents releasing our gifting to death to ourselves and allowing resurrection life to bring the gift to its full manifestation. This chapter I want to delve deeper into the specifics of the gifts of God given by the Holy Spirit to each Believer and the Body as a whole. Of primary importance to God are the intentions or the motivations of the heart. “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the divisi

For this reason, I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. (2Ti 1:6) To listen to the audio-only version click below    One of the power tools of the kingdom of God is the ability to activate within our specific gifting. Gifting and purpose are inextricably linked. “As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the multifaceted grace of God.” (1Pe 4:10) We see from this verse that the gifts we walk in are a testimony of the manifold, multifaceted grace of God. Grace, as we remember, is the Hebrew word “chen”. Chen is the word picture of a fence which guards or surrounds the seed of God’s word, plan, and destiny. Keep that in mind as we develop the understanding and application of the gift of God. Peter tells the congregation that there is an interconnectedness of our giftings and that we are stewards which tells us there is an accountability for how we live out our giftings. T

Then Moses said to God, "Behold, I am going to the sons of Israel, and I will say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you.' Now they may say to me, 'What is His name?' What shall I say to them?" God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM"; and He said, "Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'" God, furthermore, said to Moses, "Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, 'The LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.' This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name to all generations. (Exo 3:13-15) To listen to the audio-only version click below    One of the most powerful revelations of God is the revelation of His Name. When God reveals Himself He gives His children access to Him through His name. He spoke to Israel through Moses, His prophet, that He was named as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, which

“For a Child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of armies will accomplish this.” (Isaiah 9:6-7) To listen to the audio-only version click below  Giving Opportunity Message   The Fall is the season the return of the Lord. There are three Feasts of the seven that represent the second coming of our King. These Feasts are eternal in nature and are of the government of God. They are eternal and predate the priesthood and point to an eternal kingdom: “where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.” (Hebrews 6:20) In the seventh month,

Deliverance: Truth - David Mitts

So, Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, "If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."(Joh 8:31-32) To listen to the audio-only version click below  Giving Opportunity Message   Deliverance and discipleship are one and the same. We are delivered from slavery to the world and its mind control dehumanizing system and into our identity and destiny in the Lord, as His disciples. No to different from fictional accounts of mental and physical programming, the world uses techniques to do the same to our souls. Thoughts or as the scripture names them strongholds define our reality. These are fortresses of thought that the world and Satan has imparted into the fabric of our hearts that can bring us into a bondage in those respective areas. Paul describes this process like this: For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfar

And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. - Luk 2:7 NASB20 To listen to the audio-only version click below  Giving Opportunity Message   In the hour that we are in it’s easy for us to get offended and to be discouraged because of the circumstances or the environment which doesn’t seem favorable. If we listen to the news as a source of input we can find ourselves feeling hopeless perhaps. With all of the chaos and the many voices coming our way we want to make sure that we have room at the “inn” of our hearts for the voice of the Lord. "And He humbled you and let you go hungry, and fed you with the manna which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, in order to make you understand that man shall not live on bread alone, but man shall live on everything that comes out of the mouth of the LORD. - Deu 8:3 NASB20 Yeshua also warns us in Matthew 24 about love growing col
