Jesus was the first person to ever liberate women. Part of the good news of the gospel is that women are powerful, valued, and embraced by God.
Religion starts wars, but the kingdom stops them. Wherever the kingdom is present, there is peace because the leader of the Kingdom is the Prince of Peace. It's the kindness of God that leads to revival, and it's the tranquil life that actually allows people to see the goodness of God.
Kris and Kathy discuss with school of ministry students the importance of managing your soul, and learning how to get your needs met.
He who gives the most hope has the greatest influence! Our hope is rooted in Jesus who can do anything, and who has given us power, authority and dominion. God has called us to mold culture and create supernatural eco-systems.
We used to be paupers but now we have become kings. God created us to rule and reign with Christ, in the here and now.
We must learn how to manage our strengths and steward the favor in our lives. Sometimes when we live in a season of prosperity, we get complacent and stop sowing into the next season. We must remember how we got here and why we are here so that we can continue experiencing greater measures of abundance.
Thankfulness is of utmost importance. By maintaining our eyes on what we've been given, we can continually enjoy gratitude that keeps us humble and reminds us of where we came from.
The level to which you love yourself is the level at which you will love others.
Revelation is God's intellectual property. Progressive revelation means you honor the past, live in the present, and look to the future.
Learning to control your thoughts is the single greatest secret to successful living. We can learn how to manage the kingdom that's within us.
It is time for us to dream again. When we have vision, it gives purpose to our sacrifice.
We were created to live tridimensionally. God has given us the mind of Christ, and he wants to communicate with us beyond the ways that our 5 senses understand.
God made us as triune beings. He loves your whole self, and he isn’t trying to divide your soul from your spirit. Wholeness involves passion and affection. Culture without affection is a culture that leads people to look for it in unhealthy places.
A false prophet is someone who has a bad heart, not bad doctrine or a bad word.
The church was born in a covenant, not a convention. People are meant to be "born again" into a family. The goal isn't just to get a lot of people to "make a decision," but to have a covenant community. Weddings are wonderful, but the goal is to have a great marriage.
In the church, the most powerful weapons have gone undeployed. The devil is afraid of women. That's why she's still oppressed over 2,000 years after Jesus set humanity free. This is largely due to misunderstanding of a few Scriptures in the New Testament. What will happen when billions of women take their rightful place on the planet?
Character matters. Whenever you emphasize grace to the place where you take away personal responsibility, you have a different gospel. There's no question that God gave you the grace to do what you do. The question is, what do you do with the grace God gave you?
We need to love and care for our entire being, not just our spirits. We are meant to be lead by the spirit, but that doesn't mean the soul and body are bad-- it means our spirit is to lead them. If we are new creations in Christ, our entire being is good, and we need to learn how to manage it to be well.
Kris reviews some elementary principles of the Kingdom and focuses on the foundation of honor, supporting leaders, knowing your identity as a son/daughter of the King and remaining humble before the Lord. Jesus never said "Go out and make Christians" He said "Go out and make disciples". There is an element of discipline that comes from the honor of serving the Lord.
I have a sense that our country is improving. I had this vision of God blowing or breathing on this continent as Jesus breathed on His disciples and said,"receive the Holy Spirit." It wasn't a suggestion but a command. I saw the nation turning blood red from the east coast to the west coast.
Apostles are fathers and they are like master builders who receive a mission (blueprint) from heaven. When we are in submission to the mission, we get authority through being commissioned.
What did the devil use in the wilderness to try and destroy the Christ? The Scriptures! The most powerful weapon used against Christians is religion, and religion is the Bible without the Spirit. The Bible isn't always true. The Bible handled by the Spirit is true. The letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
Kris discusses how grace is transferred within the kingdom, bringing understanding of mantles, missions, and anointings, as well as discussing the importance of covenant within the church family.
