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.
The world is on the verse of massive change, and even though it looks very dark in some ways, God has a plan! We are in the birth pangs of a new world. 2012 is the year of shifting governments, as the church rises to take her place on the world stage, bringing the kingdom of heaven to earth.
From a conference in 2007. We must first learn to obey before we can be friends with God. Passion looks like sacrifice to those who aren't in love. Love transforms lives and re-writes our history. We need to learn to let God love us, and to love ourselves.
The goal of the Bible is to take you into an encounter with the Author. God is complex and as believers we need to learn that there are aspects of our Creator that we don't understand at this time. To comfort ourselves, we create intellectual theories to questions which God has not yet revealed. This causes us to stop searching with God.
We won't be discouraged by the darkness if we remember the x factor-- signs and wonders! This is a timely word, releasing hope for global reformation. Impossible is nothing.
The church has become a great slave to Christ, but God is looking for friends. In this cosmic dance with God, the Bridegroom has made a lot of moves on us. What if the next move is ours?
"I fear we have exchanged the wisdom of God for the wisdom of men." The world has many problems, the Lord has the answers. It is through relationship and deep intimacy with God that the answers we are searching for will be found.
Spiritual quotient (SQ), which is defined by Kris as the ability to discern, perceive and judge the spiritual dimensions that are at work in and around you, and manage this realm towards a positive outcome. We are a spirit, that has a soul, that has a body. The most powerful part of our being is our spirit. It is important to learn how to develop and grow this part of our being.
Can we as believer's influence the decisions of God? How did David and Mary pull a promise that was intended for future generations into their own time? Kris poses the question "what has been predetermined by God?"
In this revelatory teaching, Kris Vallotton clarifies the difference between living for eternity and living from eternity. Every Believer knows that God wants all of us to live in Heaven with Him when we die. But many Christians haven't recognized that we are called to live from the celestial realm now because we are seated in heavenly places with Christ.
When you are in battle, remind yourself of the words, promises, and prophetic words that God has spoken over your life. The prophetic declarations that are spoken over your life will become one of the greatest weapons when going through spiritual battles. The battles we go through in life is to develop strength.
