I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...

Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.



Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.

Sizzle, spark, explode -

Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -

The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.

This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.

Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.

Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

Greetings -

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.

As I read the Holy Bible this morning, I thought something like, "Lord, in the entire content of Your Bible, there is no battle that You didn't impressively win."  

The Word of GOD has plenty of fighting going on, especially illustrated in the Old Testament.  Yes, indeed, a whole lot of fighting going on but GOD always triumphs!

All types of characters made choices to take on the Most High GOD.  People such as Pharaoh, Jezebel, Goliath, Tobiah, and Haman all foolishly fought against GOD.  They made threats and vigorously fought against the purposes of our Lord.  Numerous kings defied and attacked what He destined.   The Philistines, Pharisees, Hittites, Ammonites, and the Moabites, among other enemies of GOD, opposed but couldn't stop the Almighty Creator.

Our Lord humiliated, subdued, and utterly destroyed His enemies.  It's excellent medicine for our souls to read of the assorted ways that our GOD defeated His enemies.  How great that He continues to gain astounding wins.  There are no low profile righteous victory accounts shown in the Bible.  GOD reveals His triumphs with flourish and major attitude. 

The devil shows off.  GOD delights in showing ON.

And it's so encouraging to know that our Lord is not a respecter of persons.  He respects holiness.

Colossians 3:25
But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

In 2 Samuel 12: 11, 12, after David committed his secret sin, the Lord told David, a man after GOD's heart, these words:

Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house,...   

For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel,... 

And what about what Paul said in The Acts 16:37?

But Paul said unto them, They have beaten us openly uncondemned being Romans, and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out privily? nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out.

The Acts 26:26
For the king knoweth of these things, before whom also I speak freely: for I am persuaded that none of these things are hidden from him; for this thing was not done in a corner.

No, folks, GOD isn't a corner loving GOD.  He delights in being on display - showing ON!  His victories are unfailingly impressive with certain flourish.  And the means that He uses - such genius and variety.  Conventional methods aren't His signature style.

In 1 Samuel 17, Goliath "prophesied" to David about how he was going to give his flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.  Well, we know what David said and did.  He boldly proclaimed prophetic truth that came to pass in spectacular fashion.  

1 Samuel 17:45, 46
Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. 

Yes, our Lord loves having His name in the news accompanied by victory reports. 

Our Father expects us to live holy and to walk in steadfast victories.  To do otherwise is to give victories to the devil - for he loves when we surrender to his evil and deceptive agenda.   

When we cleave to GOD, we deal devastating blows to the dominion of Satan.  We are appointed to destroy the works of the devil and when we walk in the Spirit that is precisely what we do.

GOD comes in winning and He leaves winning.  He enters and exits in win mode - EVERY TIME - and so can we, as we wholly trust and utterly obey Him.   

Hail to the Most High Holy GOD!
