If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.  Numbers 14:8 KJV

Yesterday, we talked about  delighting in the Lord but today we are going to focus on The Lord delighting in us. These words were spoken in the Old Testament by Joshua and Caleb and they rendered extra ordinary rewards and praise to them by God the Father Himself.   Now just like the Psalms 37:4 this verse seems also conditional because of the ‘if’.  But if you look deeper you will see that word ‘if’ there actually means ‘since’. It is the Hebrew word ‘im’.  If you know the story of the children of Israel and their deliverance you know that God delighted them.   The word delight in Numbers 14:8  is a different word from the word delight in Psalms 37:4.

The word delight in Psalms 37:4  is the Hebrew word anag.   It means:

#6026 עָנַג `anag {aw-nag'}

 a primitive root; TWOT - 1648; v

        1b2) to be happy about, take exquisite delight
        1b3) to make merry over, make sport of

The word delight in Numbers 14:8 is the Hebrew word chaphets. It means:

#2654 חָפֵץ chaphets {khaw-fates'}

 a primitive root; TWOT - 712,713; v

             1a2b) to be pleased to do
 2) to move, bend down
    2a) (Qal) to bend down

—Brown-Driver-Briggs (Old Testament Hebrew-English Lexicon)

A primitive root; properly to incline to; by implication (literally but rarely) to bend; figuratively to be pleasedwith, desire:— X any at all, (have, take) delight, desire, favour, like, move, be (well) pleased, have pleasure, will, would.


Do you know what other word means to have pleasure and to delight in?  Look at the similarities of this definiton.

The English word for charis is GRACE!!!!

Today, God the Father delights in US because of JESUS. We are in The Beloved (Jesus).  When God the Father said Caleb had a ‘different spirit’ with Him I believe that Spirit was definitely faith but mainly the spirit of GRACE. You can tell by what Caleb said and out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.  Caleb was focused on the fact that The Lord delighted in them.  He knew this because of all the Lord had done for them already.  Delivering them from Egypt, opening the Red Sea, providing food for them in the desert and water from a rock.  The Word says in Ephesians 2:8 “By GRACE you have been saved thru FAITH and that now of yourselves, it is the gift of God!  Jesus is THE GIFT FROM GOD THE FATHER TO US!!!

With that I will say this, don’t focus on delighting yourself in the Lord more than you focus and know that The Lord delights in you. If you know The Lord delights in you you will be well on your way to delighting yourself in the Lord.  FOCUS on the truth that THE LORD DELIGHTS IN YOU!!! Amen!!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you! Shalom!!!



If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey. Numbers 14:8 KJV

How many times have you heard the scripture preached, “Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.” I have heard it many times but then, in many cases I’ve heard the the excitement and fire of believers as they think of God the Father actually giving them the desires of their heart only to have that fire snuffed out as this is said in an accusatory or condemning way.  “Yes God will give you the desires of your heart BUT, are you delighting yourself in the Lord?”  If you are not rooted and grounded in the truth that you are the righteousness of God apart from your works and that you are not under the law but under grace, you may allow this seemingly harmless comment to talk you out of this scripture and the desires of your heart. Let’s look at some of the things Jesus said about things you desire.

Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:24 KJV.

If you maintain a living communion with me and my words are at home in you, I command you to ask, at once, something for yourself, whatever your heart desires, and it will become yours. In this my Father is glorified, namely, that you are bearing much fruit.  John 15:7-8 Kenneth Wuest Translation

These are powerful scriptures about desires and the one listed in John 15 is extremely detailed and powerful. Jesus is saying I command to ask at once something for yourself.  Now lets talk about Mark 11:24 for a minute because verse 25 right after that says that when you stand praying forgive otherwise the Father will not forgive you.  I am paraphrasing a bit to make a point.  Let me ask a question, had Jesus been crucified and resurrected yet when He shared that with the Jews? No!  So he was talking to Jews and people up under the law.  We are not forgiven today because we forgive, we are forgiven because of Jesus’s crucifixion has remitted all of our sins past, present and future.  That may be a lot for some people to swallow but its the truth anyway.  Again don’t take my word for it.  Take The Word for it.

“I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more. Isaiah 43:12 NIV

For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. Hebrews 8:12 KJV

This is God the Father talking.  Pay close attention to the next verse in Hebrews.

When God speaks of a “new” covenant, it means he has made the first one obsolete. It is now out of date and will soon disappear. Hebrews 8:13 New Living Translation

In the Old Testament, David asked the Lord not to take His Holy Spirit from him(David).  If you are a believer today and you pray this that prayer is not in line with the Word of God for New Testament believers. You may ask why? Because The Father said in Hebrews 13:5 He will never leave us or forsake us.  Jesus also told His disciples in John 14:17 that the Holy that The Holy Spirit was dwelleth with them and shall be in them. The word dwelleth means to abide, to stay.  We must know and understand we are under a different covenant than David.  My point in bringing this up is as believers we have to know when the Word is talking TO US versus when The Word is talking to us about someone else. Now let’s get to the meat of today’s post.

Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Psalms 37:4 KJV  

This is where we started. But I saw something that I had never considered and I believe I will place my faith there. It produced really good results for the two people who spoke and believed it. Who are these two people? Joshua and Caleb!!!

We will pick this up tomorrow. Be sure to join us, you don’t want to miss this revelation and gift from The Father.

All the ‘blessed’ to you! Shalom!!!


Therefore, this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem, a firm and tested stone.  It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on.  Whoever believes need never be shaken. Isaiah 28:16 New Living Translation

Imagine having a nice piece of beach front property.  You enjoy the nice sunny days and go out and enjoy the wind with your family and the sand.  But one day a fierce storm arises. The news says its disaster level storm and that you should vacate your home because the home will be wiped out.  But because you know the truth, that your home is built on a foundation that can with stand that storm and much worse you simply take refuge there and let the wind and water batter up against your firm foundation knowing that it will not bend or budge.  That type of confidence is available ONLY in the person of Jesus Christ.  This Old Testament scripture is talking about a building but it ultimately and at its core is talking about Jesus.   The part to take notice of is the part that says, “Whoever believes need never be shaken.”.  If you are a believer that is available to you and your family today and everyday through the GRACE of GOD Who is JESUS!!!

Did you know another picture of Jesus is the ark of which Noah and his family were SAVED in?  Outside of the ark, death,mayhem and destruction along with storms and torrential rain.  They may have rocked a little bit or even rolled but if they fell down due to the rocking and rolling of the ark they NEVER fell OUT of the ark they ALWAYS fell IN THE ARK.  That is a picture of you,  You are IN CHRIST!!!  Did you ever notice how many times in the New Testament the Bible says we are in Christ?  We are forever in Christ!! We are protected.  Noah and his family were protected because they believed and they kept on believing even though the rain did not show up for years.  WHOEVER BELIEVES NEED NEVER BE SHAKEN. You need never be shaken by things that happen, even if they are your own doing.  It does not matter for Christ is Our Savior, Our Redeemer, Our Deliverer, Our Protector, Our Salvation!!!!

Take a look at  Isaiah 28:16 in some other translations.

So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic. NIV

Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed.  NASB

Therefore the Lord GOD said:” Look, I have laid a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; the one who believes will be unshakable. Holman Christian Standard Bible

therefore this is what the LORD God says: “Look! I am laying a foundation stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation: Whoever believes firmly will not act hastily. International Standard Version

Therefore, this is what the sovereign master, the LORD, says: “Look, I am laying a stone in Zion, an approved stone, set in place as a precious cornerstone for the foundation. The one who maintains his faith will not panic  NET Bible

This is what the Almighty LORD says: I am going to lay a rock in Zion, a rock that has been tested, a precious cornerstone, a solid foundation. Whoever believes [in him] will not worry.

Understand and know that Jesus is a firm and unshakeable foundation.  Don’t put your faith in your faith.  Put your faith in Him  and His faith. He is the Author and Finisher of faith.  The faith you have you got from Jesus so be constantly believing in Him and you will not be shaken, moved or have need for worry.

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!


…because everything that has been born of God is constantly coming off victorious over the world. And this is the victory that has come off victorious over the world, our faith. I John 5:4 Kenneth Wuest Translaton

With all the things going on in the world, talk of nuclear war, and threats and divisiveness, shooting, people are naturally concerned about their safety and well being.  Many believers are concerned as well and to a certain degree we all should be but not to the point of fear and worry. Why? Because we are in the world but not of the world. Our health and well being does not depend does not depend on the resources of this world. Now if as a believer you have no knowledge of this or simply don’t believe that that is true, you may have reason for concern, but allow me to dispel any doubt you may have. The Word of God says in the book of Hosea, “My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge.” Lack in any form is sin and Romans 6:14 declares that, “Sin shall not have dominion over you for you are not under the law but under GRACE (Who is Jesus).”

Our topic text says: …because everything that has been born of God is constantly coming off victorious over the world. And this is the victory that has come off victorious over the world, our faith. I John 5:4 Kenneth Wuest Translaton

If you are born again, you are born of God!!! If you are born of God YOU ARE CONSTANTLY COMING OFF VICTORIOUS OVER THE WORLD. “Well, Brother Vincent, my life sure does not look like I am coming off victorious over the world.” I understand but this is where you have to make a decision. Are you going to believe your circumstances or The Word of The Father. The issue may be, “Do you believe The Word?” You may be what Brother Copeland calls mentally assenting to The Word or agreeing with your mouth but not really believe it in your heart where it matters. Do a test, check your mouth and thoughts. What have you been thinking and saying about circumstances that don’t line up and agree with The Word? Look at this verse.
Who is he who is constantly coming off victorious over the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? I John 5:5 Kenneth Wuest Translation

You will probably say, “I believe Jesus is the Son of God!!” Okay great!! Do you believe that Jesus has conquered the world? He told you He did.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 NIV

If your were a growing fetus inside your mothers womb still and your Mom was eating Wendy’s that day for dinner, guess what you would be having for dinner? WENDY’S. Why? Because you are in your Mom and whatever your Mom is getting or ingesting is what will be passed to you. If you are a believer YOU ARE IN CHRIST!! Since you are in Christ ALL that CHRIST IS AND HAS AND HAS DONE IS YOURS!!! His overcoming the world is your overcoming the world. His victory over the world is your victory over the world. Believe that and you will walk in victory in every area of your life. God the Father has given you the victory thru your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!! Receive it!! Take it!!!

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. I Corinthians 15:57

Exercise your God given rights based on The Word knowing that you have the victory and your house will be just fine!! Shalom!!!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!!


And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Genesis 1:26 King James Version

Yesterday we got into somethings that The Holy Spirit desired to highlight.  One was dominion and the other was ownership.   Although we started on dominion yesterday we focused on ownership  and today we are going to focus again on dominion.   The two are really two sides of the same coin only with different faces if you will.  The word dominion there in Genesis comes from the Hebrew word radah which means reign.  When a king has dominion or reigns over a certain territory or land, that means he has power and authority there.  It also means regardless of who owns the land or currently lives on it by his authority and office he can take ownership of the land.  As The Word declares the Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness there of, the world and they that dwell in it.  This is still true today however God gave mankind a 6000 year lease on the Earth to rule and reign in and on it.  Man has authority  and dominion here.  This is one of the reasons Jesus had to be born as a man.  If He had simply come here as God then satan could have called Him out about it and declared He was not righteous because He broke His Word about giving man dominion for that time period.  Our Father is RIGHTEOUS.  He does not have to stoop to the devil’s lying ways to get the victory because He is victory.  He obtained the ultimate victory over the devil through the finished work of Jesus Christ and Jesus in turn turned around and gave that victory to us.

God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church.  Ephesians 1:22 New Living Translation

Jesus is Head over all things not for His benefit but for ours. This is why Poppa God made Him Head over all things to legally get back all things into the hands of His children, not the devil and his kin.  We are to use that authority to take possession and walk in the dominion or as the New Testament says REIGN IN LIFE!!!  Jesus exercised authority over ALL THINGS.

How did Jesus multiply the loaves?  DOMINION!  How did Jesus walk on water? DOMINION!  How did Jesus do all the things He did before even dying on the Cross and being born again.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and DOMINION!  You really have to grasp the bigness of what Jesus did and how He did it.  He used the same dominion that God has given to every man and woman on the Earth in Genesis 1:26.  God never changed His mind or His Word.  The only difference between Jesus and you is that He knew He had dominion and believed it and He found out about it the same way you and I can, by reading and studying The Word. Yes he studied The Word just like you and I are supposed to do each day.  What do you think Jesus was doing for those 30 years before he started His ministry?  He was spending time with His Father and studying The Word.  Since He is The Word, you could say He spent 30 years learning about Himself and about what He could do.  Spending time in and with The Word is how you learn about yourself and what you can do through Christ who once again, is The Word.  Did you know that Jesus was not the first person to multiply food?

42One day a man from Baal-shalishah brought the man of God a sack of fresh grain and twenty loaves of barley bread made from the first grain of his harvest. Elisha said, “Give it to the people so they can eat.”

43“What?” his servant exclaimed. “Feed a hundred people with only this?”

But Elisha repeated, “Give it to the people so they can eat, for this is what the LORD says: Everyone will eat, and there will even be some left over!” 44And when they gave it to the people, there was plenty for all and some left over, just as the LORD had promised.  2 Kings 4:42-44  New Living Translation

Jesus read that and knew that.  It was in the old scrolls they had in the Temple.  Elisha did not pray, he just said, “Give it to the people so they can eat”.  Now he said “thus saith the Lord ” later but he just used his dominion same as Jesus.  Elisha simply believed what He heard God say and acted on that.  God already gave man the permission and command to subdue the Earth in Genesis.  Bread is in the Earth and comes from the Earth.  Water is in the Earth.  Jesus used His God given dominion as a man to walk on the water.  How?  By simply believing what His Father said in Genesis 1:26.    Well Brother Vincent you’re just acting like anything we see in the Bible is possible!!”  I’m glad you said that.  You’re thinking about if you can walk on water instead of believing you can walk on water. That is human reasoning.  2 Corinthians 10:5 tells you what to do with that so I’m not going to take up time and space here with that.  Lets see what Jesus said about “if you can”.

21Jesus asked the boy’s father, “How long has he been like this?”

“From childhood,” he answered. 22“It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.”

23“ ‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”  Mark 9:21-13 NIV

Now do you know who is ‘the One who believes”?  Our faith waivers sometime and we get to thinking about this and considering that.  But not Jesus!! JESUS ALWAYS BELIEVES!!!  So guess what, your only job is to know what’s yours and then believe in the One who believes all the time.  This is your only job.  I didn’t say that Jesus did.  Check this out.

Jesus told them, “This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the One He has sent.”  John 6:29 New Living Translation

Jesus has already given you EVERYTHING HE HAS!! There is no more to give.  There is only more for you to receive. The Father gave you dominion and He gave you Jesus. That’s all you need.  Get to receiving NOW!!!

All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom!


And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.  Genesis 1:26 King James Version

When Poppa speaks everything listens?  Notice I said everything listens. I did not say everyone listens because sometimes we humans act less smart than animals but Poppa loves us any way.  Praise God!!  But everything listens.  Donkeys listen to God when He says, “Speak donkey!”  The donkey does not say, ” But I don’t  normally talk.  I have no business talking.”  No donkeys, fish, birds, rocks, trees, the sea obey when God speaks.  So what does that have to do with dominion?  EVERYTHING!!!    I want you to put your catchers (listening ears) on because what we are going to talk about is crucial. You knowing you HAVE dominion has always been and will be all the more vital as time goes on.  God the Father, Who Loves you GAVE YOU dominion.  This is why I titled this YOUR DOMINION.  When someone gives you a car and you receive it it’s yours.  You can use it anytime you want however you want.  You can use your car for your benefit or you can give someone else a ride and use your car for their benefit.  This is the benefit of ownership in dominion.  But you must take ownership.

If someone buys you a brand new Mercedes GL 550 loaded with the luxury package, then calls you up and says Sister So and So this is Brother Bless You. ” I just bought you a new Mercedes and left it at the dealership, it’s all paid and I gave them your name and all you have to do is go down there and sign the title for it.”  Then Brother Bless You hangs up.  If you go back to watching Wheel of Fortune and forget about it or worse believe it’s too good to be true and never go to the dealership that Mercedes does you no good or anyone else.  This is what some believers do.  Or in some cases some believers when God gives them something then they say, “Well Lord I give it back to you” then the Lord says,  “No I gave it to you” then they say “Yes Lord but everything I have is yours.”  Now you and the Lord play tennis and a legal claim is never made on the thing and spiritual ownership is up in the air. This is how things are sometimes stolen.   I did not even mean to go to that depth but I have a peace about it so I will not delete it.  One of the main things I keep hearing Sister Gloria Copeland say lately and she has for years is, “TAKE IT!!!”  Did you know the word receive in the Greek is the word lambano and it means to take?

God the Father already knows everything is His. He knew that before you said that to Him.  Understand this, when God gives you something and YOU receive it as yours then guess what?  It automatically belongs to Jesus because you belong to Jesus.  Jesus BELONGS to you because the Father gave Him to you. He is a gift and He is YOURS,  His Name is Yours!  His Name belongs to you.  He delights in giving and you need to delight in receiving. You need to delight in taking from your Father and once He gives it say, ” That is now mine!! That is my healing!!  That is my money!! That is my child!!  That is my job!!  When you approach it from a standpoint of ownership your whole attitude will be different.  I remember I had a nice contract with a well-known company but there was this one lady who constantly tried to come against me.  I would stand on The Word and we would win the contract the next year and the next and the next. Well finally the contract got to a certain size and man the persecution was not coming every three months.  It was weekly.  Finally I got mad, started saying what they said and got over into fear a little and did not bid for the contract on the followup year after 5 years of HAVING IT and then lost it.  Every time I bid I won.  As a matter of truth many of the times when the contract was out to bid although there were thousands of people aware of it I was the only one to respond. Why?  Because it was MINE!!  And no matter what that lady tried to do she could not take what was mine because I was saying, “IT”S MINE!” I knew without a shadow of a doubt God had given it to me.  My bid was my ownership claim.  When I did not bid I took myself off of it by not making the claim necessary in the Earth realm.

We need to know WE, not the world have the dominion here not the sinners.  We have dominion, its been given to us by God and He never changed His Word or His mind.  Make sure you are not asking the world for permission to have something that God the Father already gave you or said you can take!!!  The Earth is the Lord’s not the devil’s, not his children.  THE LORD’S.  This is why it’s so important that you see and say that GOD IS YOUR FATHER!!!  Stop calling Him God all the time, call him Poppa, Daddy, Abba or whatever is your comfortable father term.  Abba, Daddy and Poppa indicates closeness and even Oneness.  Look at this scripture about Jesus calling God his Father.

25Jesus replied, “I have already told you, and you don’t believe me. The proof is the work I do in my Father’s name. 26But you don’t believe me because you are not my sheep. 27My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, 29for my Father has given them to me **(see that you are a gift to Jesus from the Father)**, and he is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand. 30The Father and I are one.”

31Once again the people picked up stones to kill him. 32Jesus said, “At my Father’s direction I have done many good works. For which one are you going to stone me?”

33They replied, “We’re stoning you not for any good work, but for blasphemy! You, a mere man, claim to be God.”  John 10:31 New Living Translation

Tell me something.  Do you see anywhere in those verses where Jesus claimed to be God? No you don’t. Jesus simply said the Father and I are One.   Jewish people know that whenever a person claims that someone is their father, that puts them on equal footing and standing with their father.  They know this.  This is why they said Jesus blasphemed.  Look at what Jesus said later when He talked about His Father who is your Father.

All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you. John 16:15 KJV

Everything the Father has belongs to Jesus.  The Father had you and he turned around and gave you to Jesus as a gift.  Then The Father turned around and gave Jesus to you as a gift, the gift of RIGHTEOUSNESS.  Jesus just took Ownership of you when you accepted Him and all the Father has.  You are joint heir WITH Jesus and everything Jesus has is yours which is everything the Father has.  Wow I am going to have to go back and read this myself because I had no idea all this would come out.  We were focusing on dominion but the Holy Spirit is focusing on ownership.  The two are tied together because without the dominion you can’t take ownership.  Exercise your dominion over ALL THE EARTH.  Now remember you have dominion over everything.  You do not have dominion over people.  God the Father does not make people do things and neither can you.  That is witchcraft.  A demon spirit is a thing and you have dominion over them given by Jesus in Luke 10:19.  I pray this blesses you and you walk in great grace and great glory.

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!


According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 2 Peter 1:3-4

We ended yesterday talking about us being partakers of Jesus’s divine nature and how to pull the things that are in the divine realm or heavenly realm into the earth realm.  We do it by faith and faith always involves speaking.

The following is written, “I believed; therefore, I spoke.” We have that same spirit of faith. We also believe; therefore, we also speak. 2 Corinthians 4:1 God’s Word Translation

Faith always at some point invokes speaking.  This is how The Father did and does things, this is how Jesus did things while He was on Earth and as members of the Body of Christ and Jesus, Who is our Head, this is how we must do things as well. When a storm arose that appeared to threaten Jesus and His disciples (you are now His disciple), Jesus rose up out of a nap and said to the storm, “SHALOM!!” and immediately the wind and waves ceased. Why? Because He has authority over ALL THINGS.  The disciples were the ones upset, Jesus was not. He was taking a nap during the storm because He knew it could not overtake or destroy them.  He was functioning out of authority, shalom and truth.   The disciples were functioning out of and off of what they saw. They were going by sight and not faith. Jesus is the Prince of Shalom or Peace so He simply released what was in Him to be made manifest all around Him.  When Jesus see’s a sick person He knows He has divine health and life in Him so He simply releases that life and health to others. In some cases He did  not even release it, it was taken from Him by faith in  the case with the woman with the issue of blood.

This proves Jesus’s is not trying to keep things from people, they just have to be obtained the proper way, thru faith. Jesus is not stingy and neither is The Father.  The Father created everything you see thru The Word, the pre-incarnate Jesus. He spoke out us and the world and all of the created things and beings.  Did you ever stop and think about the fact that YOU ARE GOD’S FAITH?  You were created by the faith of God!!!! I got that revelation after the Lord told me, “I call you MY FAITH!!!”.  Then 2 years after He told me that I realized what He was saying.  To put it in human terms, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Yoda and Princess Leia are all a result of George Lucas’s faith.  Yes they are.  The world of Star Wars was created by George Lucas much like this world was created by God.  Think about that!  Now what are you going to create with your faith?

The following is written, “I believed; therefore, I spoke.” We have that same spirit of faith. We also believe; therefore, we also speak. 2 Corinthians 4:1 God’s Word Translation

We need to learn to speak The Word of God and things we desire with the same faith as God and it will manifest because we are partakers of His Divine Nature.

All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom!

Yesterday we began talking about you being a partaker of Jesus’s divine nature.  We explained that Jesus is 100% God and 100% Man.  This was The Father’s plan to bring man back to the place he lost when Adam sinned and even beyond that place.  The scripture above says that His divine power “has given unto us ALL THINGS.”  This is not something that is going to be done, it is something that is done.  This is part of the finished work of Christ.  Anything that Jesus or The Father says is finished is finished.  Anything that they say has been given to you has been given and simply needs to be received by faith.    Once you receive it by faith YOU HAVE IT!!!  Unless a person is born with a deformity or has some type of accident they should have two eyeballs.  How would you look at a person who goes around begging and praying for God to give them two eyeballs when they already have two?  Yes that is how The Lord feels when we ask Him for things He has already given or said He would do or never do.   People pray and ask God to be with them and for “traveling mercies”.  They may mean well but it’s still unbelief.  Why? Because Jesus said in the Word, “Lo I am with you always even until the end of the Earth.”  God also said He would never leave us or forsake us or relax His grip on us.

….for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!” Hebrews 13:5 Amplified Bible

We talked yesterday about I John 4:17 that declares that “We are like Jesus in this world.”  Not when we get to glory or Heaven.  RIGHT NOW!!!  The Lord Jesus told me something I will share with you a while ago.  He said, “Vincent, what you see and what you HAVE, are two different things.”   I am still digesting that steak.   So when you see your bank account low KNOW that what you HAVE in your Heavenly account far outweighs what you see and that you can bring that into the Earth realm.  How?  With your mouth.

The following is written, “I believed; therefore, I spoke.” We have that same spirit of faith. We also believe; therefore, we also speak.  2 Corinthians 4:1  God’s Word Translation

Jesus says, “He has given to us ALL THINGS that pertain to life and godliness.”  You need to read that, meditate it and when you believe it, speak it!!!  IT WILL MANIFEST.  We will pick this up again tomorrow.

All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom!


According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 2 Peter 1:3-4

JESUS is 100 % God and also 100% man.  He has and is divinity and humanity all combined in one body.  When a person is born again they become AS HE IS!!!  When a believer through faith partakes of Jesus’s divine nature, that believer can by faith live exactly like Jesus does right here on earth.  I John states this in addition to the scripture above.

This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.  I John 4:17 NIV

Do you believe the last part of that verse  Do you believe that, “In this world we are like Jesus?”  2 Peter says that we are partakers of His divine nature.  The word partaker in 2 Peter is the Greek word koinonos.  Koinonos means to be a partner, a companion, a sharer and associate. On Earth when a person is a partner with someone in business they share equally in everything the profits and benefits of the partnership.  So you are a partner with Jesus in Kingdom business.  As a partner you get what He has or gets or in better terms all that Jesus has secured for you through His Life, death burial and resurrection.  This happens thru your knowledge of Him and all the exceeding great and precious promises that are in Him Who is The Word.  You find out these promises by and in The Word Who is Jesus.  You must KNOW that once Jesus gives you something and you receive it by faith not sight, YOU ACTUALLY ‘HAVE’ IT.   You are no longer trying to get it you HAVE IT.  This is a key to being happy and not worried.

27 “What I am leaving with you is shalom — I am giving you My shalom. I don’t give the way the world gives. Don’t let yourselves be upset or frightened.  John 14:27 Complete Jewish Bible

If you have received His Shalom which He gave to His disciples and you do you know what you NOW HAVE?  Because of what Shalom means, you NOW HAVE:  completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord.  We will stop there today and pickup tomorrow because  you need chew and digest the steak we just gave you before we give you another steak.  Chew on this. In other words get understanding until you believe it.

All the “blessed” to you!!! Shalom!


It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, Who has become for us wisdom from God–that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. I Corinthians 1:30 NIV

In the book of Proverbs it tells us to ‘get wisdom’. If you are born again YOU HAVE wisdom because you have Christ.  The scripture above says that we are in Christ Jesus Who has become FOR US wisdom from God.  So what is included in this wisdom from God.  The ingredients of wisdom are righteousness, holiness, and redemption.  Let’s stop and think about that for a moment.

  • Righteousness is wisdom
  • Holiness is wisdom
  • Redemption is wisdom

How and why is that?  Because of how God the Father set it up and achieved these things.In this selfish world, people for the most part don’t see giving as wisdom.  But God the Father because He is LOVE, He cannot help but to give because LOVE GIVES.  We did not earn or deserve righteousness.  It was imputed or given to us much like the gratuity you give to a waitress.  Perhaps you think that is a bad example because you may have ‘adjusted’ the waiters or waitresses gratuity based on their performance.  

However if you look up the word gratuity the origin of the word from the 15th century denotes graciousness or favor and it is a gift. Biblical favor or grace is undeserved or unmerited.  It is based solely and only on the heart of the giver not the receiver’s performance.  To the human mind that does not make sense and does not seem fair to still give 20% when the service was not up to par. However Godly wisdom is based on GRACE.  Holiness is based on GRACE.  Redemption is based on GRACE, what Christ has done. All this comes out of the wisdom of God and are ingredients of His wisdom.

Take sometime to think about that.  Your Father has put so much thought and care into what He has provided for us through Christ Jesus.

All the ‘blessed’ to you! Shalom!!!
