Manifesting Sonship - David Mitts

"For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God." Rom 8:14 (NASB) Click here to listen to " Manifesting Sonship " Last chapter we spoke about the birthing times we are in and the travail to bring forth the sons and daughters of God. I want to look at some of the characteristics of the sons of God so that we can begin to extend our faith and order our inner conversation to align with the picture. This process is called meditation. "Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer." Psa 19:14 (NASB) The key word in this verse is the word translated as acceptable. In Hebrew, this is the word “ratzon” which means Your will. So, if we retranslated the verse with that perspective we could pray, “let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart align with Your Will as You see it, O Lord, which is the power of my reality like a rock that I can stand o

The Secret of Being the Living Sacrifice - Giving - David Mitts

""For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life."   Joh 3:16 (NASB) Click here to listen to " The Secret of Being the Living Sacrifice " Clearly, we are in unprecedented times in our lifetime. Never before have we seen so clearly the power of the fear of death stop the world. Man, who has in one way or another rejected the love of God, has replaced Him, in many cases, with the fear of death.  The fear of death has a distortion effect on reality as perceived in the mind and heart.  It shifts our faith. The voice of the fear of death causes us to draw in and treat other people as a threat or a potential threat. You have only to walk into a grocery store during the crisis to feel, see, and sense the avoidance and extravagant grip that fear has on people. Why is this happening? Is it the correct response to the virus? Is this how God would have His sons and daughters res

Living Sacrifice: Dying to Truly Live - David Mitts

"Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." Rom 12:1-2 (NASB) Click here to listen to " Living Sacrifice: Dying to Truly Live " Accessing the throne of God is transformational in nature. Last chapter we spoke about intercession being a transformational encounter. We come to God with a list of requests which we call prayer. If we press in to actually meet or paga with God, we come to a crossroads encounter. At this junction, we are entering the intersection of intercession. At the paga, the intercession, we will be transformed into a new man or woman. The old will pass away, not just in our identity but in the possibilities available to us as we were.

Living in Troubled Times - David Mitts

casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. (1Pe 5:7 NKJV) Click to listen to " Living in Troubled Times " There have always been troubled times. The most difficult thing for us is to learn how to be the light in the darkness. As the darkness seems to escalate out of control like the pandemic we are facing at the time of this teaching, anxiety and fear seek to grab our hearts and to steal the ease of joy. When we need our joy the most is when the darkness is greatest. This is the true hour of intercession. but Jesus, on the other hand, because He continues forever, holds His priesthood permanently. Therefore, He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. (Heb 7:24-25 NASB) Yeshua within us, the author of the conversation of our heart, lives eternally as the voice of intercession. What is the voice of intercession? How do we attune ourselves to that voice? What is our appr
