DANCE OF FIRE
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 amend...as 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....

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.
On Monday August 27, 2012, our Lord had me to share, in one of my broadcast episodes, "Prayer and Word Power" about the importance of seeking Him early. That instruction is contained in the Holy Bible, and I'm a firm believer in adherence to it. Then, this morning, I read a Facebook post that mentioned seeking our Lord early.
Note: For the above mentioned broadcast episode and others, here's the link http://www.blogtalkradio.com/winningthoroughbredstyle
Today the Spirit of the Lord inspired me to share the following:
If we wait until late mornings, or in afternoons or evenings to commune with our Lord through prayer, reading His Words, and being intimate in other Spirit-led ways, isn't that like giving GOD our leftovers after we've attended to other matters during the course of our days? Typically, in the mornings we're fresh and alert and able to give our Lord our best in intimacy.
Sadly, some who profess Christ as Lord don't engage in daily intimacy with our Lord. Such conduct certainly isn't biblical. The Holy Bible in The Acts 17:11, mentions that they "searched the scriptures daily." Also, Joshua 1:8 instructs, "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success." And Psalm 1:2 states, "But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night."
Note: Of course, there are some Christians, due to illnesses etc., who cannot indulge... Certainly, such instances are clear to our Lord. But for those who are able but refuse to invest in daily intimacy with our Lord... When we aren't fully armoured, in accordance with the Words of GOD, we can be stumblingblocks not just to others, but to ourselves, as well. Jeremiah 44:4 declares, "Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate."
Today in my morning devotions, our Lord led me to look up the word early in the Strong's Concordance.
...early will I seek thee:...
...and inquired early after God.
I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
...with my spirit within me will I seek thee early:...
...very early in the morning, they came...
And early in the morning he came...
Now when Jesus was risen early...
And all the people came early...
...and fell on his face, and prayed,...
Daniel...kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed and gave thanks, before his God,...
Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray,...
Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgments.
It costs to be holy but it is so very much worth every price we pay. May we steadfastly purpose to follow hard after GOD - Psalm 63:8. To Him be the glory, honor and praise!

My program, "Winning Thoroughbred Style," airs on Blog Talk Radio.
Going forward, the plan is for me to broadcast twice a month. Typically, my broadcasts won't exceed 15 minutes. Presently, I'm not sure what days "Winning Thoroughbred Style" will air. The best way to listen to it is to use the "On-Demand Episodes" feature on the site, rather than listening live. The "On-Demand" allows listening at your convenience.
For ease of use, below is the link that leads to all of the "On-Demand Episodes" of "Winning Thoroughbred Style."
My most recent topic is "Prayer and Word Power."
After I recorded that topic on Monday August 27, 2012, one of my friends told me that her pastor had preached on the same topic the day before! I was delighted to learn that GOD had us on the same accord.

Today on Blog Talk Radio, I recorded, "Prayer and Word Power."
There is power in abiding in GOD with prayer and through deep investment in His Word. Prayer is intimacy with our Father and we need His Word to know Him and His will.
There cannot be wholeness without dwelling in GOD.
Here's the link to my Blog Talk Radio content
When you arrive at that page, scroll down to
"On-Demand Episodes." You can select what you choose to hear of the selections shown.

Our Lord tells us to keep our hearts with all diligence. It's in our best interest to guard what we allow in our hearts. Our hearts first belong to GOD. He guides as to who and what we should allow deep access to the core of our beings.

Yes, we can have peace and calm in the storms. God promises to keep us in perfect peace when our minds are stayed on Him.

I'm on blog radio now. In consideration of those with busy schedules, my comments are brief.
Here's the link to my most recent radio comments
Sunday, August 19, 2012
Scriptures are from the King James Bible.
People, Satan is rabid to discredit GOD and GOD'S purposes. And some of the main folks that the devil uses are those who are in churches. We're commanded to love and to forgive but nowhere in the Holy Bible are we commanded to trust in man. Trust should be proven. And the only ONE who can be FULLY trusted is GOD.
We are in spiritual warfare daily and daily we need to be fully armored according to the Word of GOD in Ephesians 6.
Satan has no pity for us. He has diabolical hatred. We cannot afford to give him place for he can devour us if we don't cleave intimately to GOD.
Evil is waxing worse and worse. The body of Christ members must live lives that distinguish us from the people of the world. We're mandated to please GOD above all else. If we don't, for sure, we'll experience unpleasant consequences for our rebellion. Now is the time to do the will of GOD. Our Lord is becoming increasingly displeased at how He's being mocked. In particular, by those who profess to be His children while steadfastly being more in conformance with the standards of the world, which is allegiance to the agenda of Satan.
1 Samuel 15:23
Our Lord shared with me that, relative to corrections, He can deal with us on three levels.
Level 1 = Requests from Him
Level 2 = Warnings from Him
Level 3 = Judgments from Him
If we don't heed GOD'S requests, He comes sharp with rebukes = warnings. If we don't heed His warnings, He comes with furious rebukes = judgments - in this life and beyond.
But where are thy gods that thou hast made thee? let them arise, if they can save thee in the time of thy trouble:...
People are playing with and mocking GOD. GOD is NOT playing with us. We need to forsake conforming to the world. Certainly, GOD isn't pleased when His full gospel is compromised.
It bears repetition. He, requests, then warns, and then judges.
Some folks believe "Once saved, always saved." I disagree. In 2011, I wrote a blog post about it. The topic got numerous comments. Some folks agreed and some did not. If you're so inclined, here's the link http://lioneaglesoar.blogspot.com/2011/07/once-saved-always-saved.html
I ask, if "once saved, always saved," why does our Lord say the following?:
I conclude with Ephesians 4:15
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
