Read The Word Of God With Faith

"...And The Word Was God"

The Living Word, when heard with faith, will reveal the Lord to the listener, like Jesus said of the Scriptures, "They testify of Me."

Let the Holy Spirit reveal the Word of God to your own heart by revelation from God Almighty. Not your own brains wisdom or probing but by the Holy Spirits illumination through revelation. How many times do we try by the merits of our own intellect to figure out and understand the Word of God? 

 1 Corinthians 2:10
But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

 1 Corinthians 2:11
For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

The Word of God comes from above not below. 

James 3:17
But the wisdom that is from above...

That which is from below can not reveal that which is from above. It is only revealed from above by revelation of the Holy Ghost. 

 Luke 2:26
And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost...

1 Peter 1:12
Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

What things? Those things that are being revealed by the revelation of the Holy Spirit, those things that minister to us from God's Word.

God is His Word. Let the Holy Spirit reveal this to you by revelation not by your intellect or thought processes or deduction but by the Holy Spirit.

"...and the Word was God."

Jesus Christ is Lord. Jesus Christ is God. He is found in His inseparable Word. They are one and the same.

 John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Let the Holy Spirit reveal this to you by revelation.

Brant Baker Power of Grace and Glory (part 1/4) 

Some emails we have received about Brant 

There are various accounts of Shekinah Fellowship floating around. Here is one account that I would trust to be accurate 

Adulating Brant?

Brant Baker taught others to love and to follow Jesus Christ!

“A leader needs the guts to stand alone and look ridiculous.”

Brant Baker stepped out in faith and was vulnerable as he did something other then being passive.

“Being the first follower is an under appreciated form of leadership; the first follower transforms a lone nut into a leader.” 

Some felt that Brant was a nut as he shared his vision and sought to obtain it.

“A movement must be public… Everyone needs to see the followers.”

Brant walked out in front of everyone and yielded to the Holy Spirit.

“As more people jump in, it’s no longer risky …they won’t stand out, they won’t be ridiculed.”

Soon Shekinah Fellowship existed.

“Remember the importance of nurturing your first few followers as equals.”

Some where along the line Brant had forgotten that, as some have reflectively expressed in their Shekinah Fellowship stories.

“The biggest lesson here . . . leadership is over-glorified… The best way to make a movement, if you really care, is to courageously follow and show the others how to follow.”

Brant taught all to follow Jesus, he would say, "Brant Baker has nothing to offer you, I have nothing to do with this."

“When you find a lone nut doing something great, have the guts to stand up and join in.”

Hundreds did join in with Brant Baker at Shekinah Fellowship!

What have you done? What are you doing? How many people have you personally impacted  for Jesus Christ? You know you can if you want to...

 Luke 10:3
Go your ways: behold, I send you...

 Mark 16:15
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

 Luke 9:60
Jesus said unto him,...but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

 Luke 9:2
And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.

 John 15:8
Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

Dance for Jesus! They will come...and they too will dance for Jesus...
But you must begin to dance even if no one else is dancing. Dance! They will see you and they will come.

 John 4:29
Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?”

Matthew 5:13
Ye are the salt of the earth...

Matthew 5:14
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

So dance the dance of  Jesus Christ before others that they may see your light and come to the feast of the Lamb. Dance!

 Mark 16:15
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Those who won't dance will be what?

 Acts 16:31
And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

I use the metaphor of dance for spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. When you step out in faith to spread the gospel message God will accompany your efforts. As a result people will be impacted by you through Him.

  2 Corinthians 6:1
We then, as workers together with him...

With Him.
