Reformation and Patriotism

The video is here. The genius of entering the Kingdom is that we are simply allowing Jesus to focus our calling, cooperating with it and following it to a place of fruitfulness. With people, we use the heart plan and our prophetic sense to tap into the desires that...

Builders

The video is here. The pattern of communication in Christianity is preaching. We share information hoping to convert others to our beliefs. Kingdom has a different twist. We are builders inviting others to share an initiative. Our Father is a builder and so are His...

God – Why Me?

The video is here. Whether God allowed my trial or caused it makes no difference to my heart. I’m trusting Him to protect me from calamity… and he doesn’t. What if God really doesn’t control “all” of time and circumstances and He is not the one who authors or...

A Prophetic Centrist

The video is here. The prophetic is discerned when it’s applied. Revelation from God is truly understood when we respond to it and do something with it. Respecting or fearing God enough to put our revelation to work is simply wisdom. Revelation is the idea, wisdom is...

Healing Emotional Detachment

The video is here. When we coach people with the Heart Plan, the whole goal is to help them get in touch with their hearts. “Heart” is our emotions, but it’s also something more. God writes His desires on our hearts in a way that they show up in our desires. As we...

Disaster Relief

The video is here. I met Sathya Kalangi over the phone this week. She started a foundation called the Collective Power of One (CPOI, cpoi.org) to provide medical assistance for natural disasters such as the earthquake in Haiti, Nepal, hurricanes, etc. As a medical...

Collaborate Co-labor and Co-create

The video is here. The precept of “faith” is that when we are spiritually mature, doubt and uncertainty will now longer be with us and we’ll know exactly what to do… and it will work. This is a partial truth (lie) that’s embedded deeply in our hearts as new believers,...

The Power of Passion

The video is here. Much is shifting in the Kingdom right now, with many practical ramifications in every mountain of our cultures. It is spring in America, a season for new beginnings. At a personal level, servants who have emphasized discipline and obedience are...

From Grace to Competence

The video is here. Most believers carry a concept that grace is how we get saved without works. Grace is much more but it has three basic definitions or aspects. Grace is not just fire insurance for heaven, it’s a key ingredient God’s uses to build His Kingdom and...

Apostolic Fathers and Mandates

The video is here. We never outgrow the need for encouragement and we all long for fathers. Our hearts are designed to cherish a father and to be one. It is pastoral, but once we feel the call to our own destiny, that relationship is better described as apostolic....

Goals for Your Heart

The video is here. I’m participating in a goal setting exercise for 2017 and have also been dabbling in business coaching. Although I’m very high on both, I noticed something missing in my heart. Goal setting is usually built around how to get something… “What I...

The Lord Our Provider

Many individuals and our nation as a whole are walking through a season when the Lord has removed the things in which we had trusted for the future. No matter what the circumstances are, the Lord is our provider. I’m hearing this phrase, “the just shall live by...

When to Press

The video is here. One issue we all face is knowing when to press into initiatives without getting ahead of God. It is wounding to invest our energy and faith to contend for something that never happens… or find out later that it was never supposed to happen. In our...

Personal and National Destiny

One of our highest Kingdom goals is to make disciples of nations (Mt 28:19) and to bless nations (Gen 12:2). Like personal discipleship, the most exciting part of this discovery process is learning that we were created to fulfill a Kingdom purpose… that destiny is...

Growing Through Your Near-Death Experience

The video is here. Two weeks ago I had an accident while leading some horses out of a corral. My memory was thankfully erased by the concussion, but somehow I got my head stepped on by one of my friends… 30 stitches, 10 staples, fractured skull and broken collar bone....

The Spirit Behind Intimidation

The video is here. One of my experiences in doing great exploits in confidence, feeling the sense of God’s presence, and being so excited, grateful, zealous… is that if something goes wrong, the air suddenly goes out of the balloon and intimidation of the atmosphere...

How to Pick Your Battles

There is a lot swirling around in politics, nations and in the spiritual realm right now. There is a general call to prayer and to address the forces behind the attack. There is a theme of lawlessness and deception at high levels of government that has a trickle-down...

Poland – Two Voices Pt. 2

The video is here. Last week we summarized the theme of the Holy Spirit from our trip to Poland here… We, and nations, have a book that contains our destiny (Ps 139:13-16). Kingdom is learning what’s in that book, choosing it, fighting for it and inheriting our land....

Recipes Don’t Work

We have all met people whom we admire. They seem to have it all going their way: something intangible that fuels them with energy, creativity, purpose and “Midas touch” results. Finances often follow such people, but their prosperity in life is much broader than...

Signs Follow

The video is here. “Signs are best meant to follow – not lead. If we are led by the Spirit our “next step” direction will most likely come in the form of a repeated desire, idea or concern that calls us to some form of action. I am alarmed by the number of people who...

He Goes Before Us

The Video is here. He is not here… He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you… Matt 28:6-7 We all make decisions and take initiatives to live. There are times when those paths feel like God is walking right with us and other times with it feels like we’re...

Cultivating Excellence

The video is here. Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm. Dan 6:3-4 NKJV The gold – A spirit of excellence is shown in people who can always...

Kings Leverage Purpose

The video is here. We all have personal needs and face difficult circumstances… relationships, finances, rejection, etc. Much of the time we can simply go to our Father and ask, and we get the answer. As we mature in the Kingdom our lives start having more impact and...

Man of God

The video is here. The Lord gave me this for a friend, but I feel that it has an application for many of us. I think there is something in this for women as well. Recovering from Failures – You have beaten yourself up for doing things in your own strength, apart from...

Intercession For Kings

The video is here. Kings are courageous, entrepreneurial, self-starters who bless the heart of God with their initiative. While much of Christianity is passive, God has some sons and daughters who carry His favor and do exploits. We all feel the wind of His Spirit...

Releasing Angels

The video is here. One of the most challenging things about being prophetic and sharing God’s heart is heartbreak. When we know something about the future, and it gets deferred or changed, the disappointment can make our heart sick (Pro 13:12). In the very same way, a...

Free to be Wise

The video is here. See prior blog, Your Father Believes in You. The beginning of wisdom – The fear (reverence) of God is the beginning of wisdom. We’ve all had the experience of doing things our own way, without seeking God, and ending up in some kind of painful dead...

Your Father Believes in You

The video is here. Wisdom in business and revelation in the spirit both result in initiatives that involve risk. Believers experience a mix of amazing victories and confusing failures. Shoring up our confidence with a positive mental attitude isn’t a foundation that...

Strategies

The video is here. One of the anomalies I see in myself and in our culture is a tendency to focus on strategies of darkness rather than strategies of Light. The events in Paris cause us all to search for the reasons why such things happen and how to prevent them… a...

The Heart Wants What the Heart Wants

The video is here. One of the greatest paradoxes of human behavior is embraced by this quote from Emily Dickenson, made popular in a song by Selena Gomez. Our most important decisions about romance, vocation and purchases are always in tension between our intellect...

Experiencing Jesus

The video is here. We heard something new in Paris as well as the Netherlands. France spawned the age of reason and the enlightenment after the reformation. Christians have always balanced spiritual experience with sound doctrine. Intellectualism presumes our heads...

The Gateway to 7 Mountains

We usually hear something new from the Lord at each of these conferences. It gets clearer each time we try and articulate it. This time we found precious, hungry people positioned by God with a special calling to lead reformation. There is big-picture move by God to...

Having Fun

The video is here. A friend shared with me yesterday that his business was expanding into several neighboring nations and his schedule was busy, but he was having fun. In the middle of a conference in Poland 5 years ago I was with a team of businessmen in a...

Personal Reformation

The video is here. There is a macro shift from revival to reformation happening now. The concept of getting saved and serving others for the rest of your life on earth doesn’t tap the real calling to a mountain that rests in our hearts. About 75% of young...

Dreams Do Come True

  The video is here. Life is busy. Our culture doesn’t naturally get us connected with our own hearts, nor do any of our institutions teach us how. It leaves us plodding through life with no sense of destiny or purpose. We use entertainment to fill the gap in our...

Surviving Setbacks

The video is here. There is a belief in most of our hearts that if we are God’s kids, nothing bad will happen to us. It might be more realistic and Biblical to suggest that the Holy Spirit will lead us through a wilderness where lots of exciting things will happen....

Real Wisdom

The video is here. We all want to make wise choices that bear fruit. Revelation and wisdom are often confused in the spiritual dimension, and God’s wisdom and worldly wisdom are often confused in the business dimension. So, how do we know what path is wisdom? Do not...

How to Change Your Mind

The video is here A friend put me unto a concept by Carolyn Leaf and her book, Switch on Your Brain. Neuroplasticity refers to changes in neural pathways and synapses due to changes in behavior, environment, neural processes, thinking, and emotions – as well as to...

Try Smarter not Harder

The video is here. One of the remarkable differences between people under the influence of a poverty mentality and those living in God’s abundance is knowing when to get help. Those in poverty usually believe they must make in on their own. When they encounter a...

It’s Easy to Make Money

The video is here. Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson launched the War on Poverty. Since then, US taxpayers have spent more than $22 trillion fighting Johnson’s war, three times the cost of all military wars in U.S. history. Currently in the US, about 35% of...

Welcome to Warfare

The video is here. This adventure of releasing our own hearts in the Kingdom and inviting others to do the same has led to some surprising places. For example, I’m blessed beyond measure to find that God has written in the hearts of people who do not yet know Jesus....

Sharing Your Why

The video is here. There is a sound in the Kingdom built around sharing your “why” – the real reasons for the motivations of our hearts. If we try to convince others to adopt our why, it feels disingenuous and raises the resistance we all have for a sales pitch. If...

In Christ

The video is here. One of the great keys of the Kingdom is learning to dwell “in Christ.” It is simply surrendering our agenda to be with Jesus and see what’s on His heart. That place and time is the wellspring of everything we have to give others. He who dwells in...

Crowns and Thorns

The video is here. I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings… Phil 3:10 NIV If we died with him, we will also live with him; 12 if we endure, we will also reign with him. 2 Tim 2:11-12 NIV The Lamb will...

Getting Connected With Our Hearts

One of the distinctive features of followers of Jesus entering His Kingdom is that they become themselves. Religion is trying to be better than you really are. Christianity is becoming who you really are and creating an abundant lifestyle that blesses people and...

Living in Rest

For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. 9 There remains, then, a Sabbath — rest for the people of God; 10 for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. 11 Let us, therefore, make...

Experiencing Surrender

The video is here. The Old – Surrender means that, in the face of insurmountable odds, we raise our hands and give up. It means letting go and letting God. It means letting go of our own will, taking up our cross and letting God have His way. Instead of doing our own...

Embracing Vulnerability

When we were in Dallas last weekend sharing about Releasing Kings and hearts, I shared my own stories of tragedy and triumph. There is some fragrance that comes into our lives when we experience a death and resurrection on a personal level. Everyone there was either...

What’s on God’s Heart?

The video is here. This is a time when we all think about goals and resolutions for 2015. Having some extra time over the holidays, I decided to start the process and wasn’t getting anything too exciting. So, I asked God, “What is on your heart?” What follows is the...

Give Thanks

The video is here November and the entire year of 2014 has been a season of blessing and breakthrough. In spite of turmoil around the world, the Kingdom of God is moving forward in amazing ways. I’m thankful for God’s invitation into the Kingdom. He bought my ticket...

Trading Up For Your Future

The greatest freedom in life comes from knowing our direction and making progress toward our destiny. The leverage to make an adjustment and redirect our course depends on knowing where we’re going. The sweet spot comes when we add the dimension of knowing where God...

We Can Change the World

The video is here. Some would say, “No, you can’t change the world.” Others would say, “One person at a time, starting with me.” For those who are staying to build the Kingdom, and not leaving in the rapture, we can get started on our assignment right now. Here’s how....

Overcoming an Orphan Mentality

One of our primary themes is that the Kingdom is built upon dreams in the hearts of God’s people. We were not designed to serve another man’s dream indefinitely. It can be good for a learning season to serve under tutors and governors, but Jesus eventually leads into...

Pressure

The video is here. There are a multitude of crises that feel totally out of control… Ukraine, the Middle East, our southern border. Putin feels like Hitler. Isis feels like Nazi Germany in the genocide of non-converts. Leaders talk more of appeasement than justice....

Only Believe

We all face issues in life that are beyond our ability to control or even to foresee. Our role in the Kingdom is volunteering to initiate something that is not possible to complete without God’s intervention. Faith always feels a little farther out on the limb than we...

Signs, Wonders and Cash Flow

The video is here. One of the needs of our hearts is to know that God’s favor is going with us. We can put our hand to the plow of our life’s work for a season, but our heart is always asking the question, “Is God really in this?” Instead of quieting that question, we...

The Gospel of being Chosen

The Video is here. This video departs from the newsletter so I recommend you watch it (10 min). This trip to Poland and Denmark consisted of a 7 Mountains conference, two Heart Plan workshops, a church service and a dozen meetings with Kings operating in different...

Raising Kingdom Kids

Teaching our children to follow us as we follow Jesus is not a small challenge. Believing parents do take it seriously, but for most, when the kids are all grown, we can look back on some serious mistakes and mixed results. The current generation of young adults in...

We Are Not Equal

The video version of the blog is here. As the Kingdom of God unfolds around the world, we are watching people occupy their roles in different mountains. We are seeing great victories and great warfare at the same time. Equality is one of the ideological and spiritual...

Connecting With Our Heart

The video is here. One of the most profound ingredients of “Kingdom” is making the transition from servant to friend in our relationship with Jesus. God is walking us all through this transition to Kingdom by teaching us how to connect with what He’s already written...

He Is Still Alive

The video version of this blog is here The concepts of market place ministry and finding your 7-mountain role is embedded in the gospel of the Kingdom. We are saved through Jesus’ death and resurrection, but the invitation into the Kingdom goes beyond an invitation to...

7 Kingdom Strategies

The video for this blog is here. God is pointing us toward revival, intentional reformation, and Kingdom, and He’s inviting us to be more practical and strategic. Waiting on God and prayer are good and essential, but the Lord is inviting us to implement our prayer in...

Ideas That Have Legs

The video version of this newsletter is here. With the advent of social media, viral ideas have the ability to travel the world at a much faster pace. The Utopian theory is that this global exchange of ideas would foster enlightenment and unity around the world… I...

Filling the Leadership Vacuum

I’ve met some great people in our travels to Poland and I want to introduce you to one of them. John Godson is a member of the Polish Parliament. He’s a great example of a King in the political mountain with an apostolic gift to raise up some sons and daughters....

Choose Yourself

The video is here. The greatest trade mark of making the transition from servant to King is the sense of having a Father and being chosen by Him. The Gospel of Being Chosen for fellowship with God and to share in what the Father is doing touches us deeply in our...

Intentional Graduations

The video for this newsletter is here. I see this cycle in institutions (church, government, business, etc.): 1) People are drawn to the cause or opportunity in the institution, 2) they are mentored or discipled into the organizational values, 3) they mature and...

Strategies of the Heart

The video version is here. Getting to travel to different nations and compare notes with others in the Kingdom is very insightful. God’s building His Kingdom at macro level and on a personal level. At the top there are large initiatives for prayer, evangelism,...

10 New Things in the Kingdom

The video version is here There are some great changes happening right now. As with every historic move, the old is passing away and the new is beginning to appear. It’s always a birthing process that is painful and glorious at the same time. 1. Hearts are being...

Thankful for His Presence

The video Version is here. God is always present; the earth is really already full of His Glory. We just don’t always feel or see Him. Most people believe that you can’t really experience God’s presence in this life… that is until they actually experience it. Then...

From Orphan to King

The video version of this newsletter is here. Learning to be a King in God’s Kingdom is all about relating to the Father in the sense of co-laboring with Him. We are not saved by our works. Kingdom comes after salvation issues have long been settled. We are God’s...

The Spirit of Wisdom

The video version of this newsletter is here. Last week we dreamed about going from Revival to Reformation: How do I take the presence of God into my own mountain? We have a mental image of what revival might look like in a church meeting setting. But what does it...

From Revival to Reformation

The video version of this blog is here. We’re on our way to Releasing Kings in the Netherlands and Poland in a month. Friends have reported evidence of revival in England, Finland, Denmark, and Germany. My sense is that all of Western Europe is ripe for such a...

The Mind of a Servant or the Heart of a King

The video version of this news letter is here. The paradox in the mind of every Christian is reconciling the incredible promises of God versus our own personal experience. Healing and wealth creation are two of the larger battlefronts. Jesus didn’t tell us to pray for...

Adding the Multiplier

The audio version of this blog is here. Pray with is for the next Releasing Kings conference in Europe. One of the challenges for Kings is integrating their faith in the real world in a way that results in real progress, profit and ministry. There is a whole school of...

Have you ever wished you could be more creative and personable?  The kind of person that can invent new things are spark new ideas when they connect with other people.  What does it mean to have that entrepreneurial spirit?  You’ll find out in the next few...

What to Do While You Wait on God

The traditional answer is, “nothing.” I want to suggest that the correct answer is “everything.” Collaborating with the Father in the Kingdom means that we do our part and God does His. He really is a miraculous participant in our lives. He really does intervene,...

The Leverage of Love

I recently updated my own goals and plans, shared them with eight friends and got back some valuable input through the process. These folks genuinely cared about me and my vision, and went out of their way to offer some practical and prophetic suggestions. It felt...

An Apostolic Age

The concept of revival is typically in the context of churches or church meetings. Everyone, including me, is very positive on the concept of revival because no one can resist falling in love with the presence of God that goes with it. Revival is real and genuine. We...

Trusting Your Intuition

But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.       Heb 5:14 KJV Afraid to trust my heart – I was raised on a ranch and educated as an engineer.  A practical, logical,...

Our Deepest Heart’s Desire

The greatest pearl of the Kingdom is the realization that God has written His desires on our hearts. We all reach a stage in the transition from servant to King when we have to choose to pursue our heart’s desire instead of a shopping list of do’s and don’ts....

Authenticity

The video is here. It’s surprisingly easy to tell when people are being real and genuine. You don’t have to be prophetic or even a Christian to discern authenticity in people. It’s a huge value in every culture. The most common and credible criticism of religion is...

The Heart of Profit

Believers who are past the guilt of whether to prosper are currently in the “So how do I make money?” stage. It’s a great question because all dreams have one common ingredient: they cost money. We could define our dreams so they didn’t cost money and we would find...

A Light in the Darkness

One of the themes for 2013 that resonates in my heart is that we will see increasing darkness and increasing light at the same time. At some level that’s always been true, but it’s easy to see our social and political landscape darken in America while the Kingdom gets...

From Parables to Profits

We are in an amazing hour of transition. I believe it’s for the better. Even though our economy approaches a cliff, as are many personal accounts, something new is being birthed in the hearts of Kingdom people. We should see it and cooperate with it. On a good day I...

Proclaiming Favor

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me… to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18-19 NIV The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me… to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God   Isa 61:1-2 NIV Faith for...

The Wisdom of Patience

A man’s wisdom gives him patience… Prov 19:11 NIV The Spirit of Wisdom – The Shack is a fictional book that I really enjoyed, in which the main character meets God. It’s a book that warms your heart and scares your mind. One of the things I enjoyed most was the...

Learning to Rule and Reign

From servant to King – There is a huge emotional jailbreak that occurs when we get the concept of moving from servant to King. The folks in Baltimore got it, and the next question that usually comes up is, “How do I channel this relational concept of God now allowing...

Loving Baltimore

We were in Baltimore, MD for a conference this last weekend. There is something about live conferences with new people that is really fun. Connecting people with their hearts causes them to connect with Jesus in a whole new way. They go from servant to King. I’m using...

From Casualty to Conqueror

Whenever I meet one of those wise old sages of business or management, I am continually impressed by the resiliency: their ability to resurrect from impossible setbacks. There is a reason that they do come back. It’s right between their ears – the attitude of their...

Enjoy the Ride

7 Reasons to Believe in Yourself

“It’s about believing in yourself, your God-given ability and your work ethic.” Tim Tibow Who we are, what we become and what we do come right out of our hearts. At a subconscious or heart level, we irrevocably march toward what our hearts believe about ourselves. It...

Waiting Patiently for God

The first ingredient for being a King and seeing the Kingdom of God is sharing a sense of destiny in Christ. That means we have a vision or heart’s desire… some design for our future. When we really find that place of intersection between our heart’s desire and God’s...

Is There a Cause?

Go There

Teamwork to Make Your Dream Work

Time Management

We wrote a newsletter on coaching entitled The Price of Success. After a couple weeks of feedback it’s apparent that time management is a bottleneck for right-brained, spirit-led believers. Left-brain engineering types are fine with lists and diets, and thrive on...

Entering Rest

For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. 9 There remains, then, a Sabbath — rest for the people of God; 10 for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. 11 Let us, therefore, make...

Discipling Nations Starts With Me

Standing in the Gap
