    Proclamations Intro

    “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.” (1 John 3:2)             It seems to me that in everything I write I am working towards a moment. A beautiful moment when I can fully understand our Fathers heart just a little better. The following chapters are just that, I believe with all that I am that these chapters are going to change your life. This information will help us to understand that Jesus did not just come to earth…

    Day 6: Tree Of Life

    Proclamation #1 “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.” (Revelation 2:7)             When Adam and Eve fell by sin, it posed a problem. We read, “And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:” (Gen 3:22) The situation was grim. Man was now fallen and filled…

    Day 7: Crowns

    Proclamation #2 “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.”  (Revelation 2:10)             I designed a poster once for myself. In the design, it had two pictures. One was a crown of thorns. The other was a royal crown. It stated that to receive the crown that is “Royal,” you must start with the one that is made of “Thorns.” Meaning we have to submit unto the one who wore the crown of…

    Day 8: Immortality

    Proclamation #3 “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.” (Revelation 2:11)             Jesus could not have any advantage over the first Adam. He had to walk out the exact same circumstance found within the Garden. To barrow a golfing term, He had to try again using a mulligan. A mulligan is often used when playing a round of golf amongst friends. It works this way; you swing and the ball does not obey your best intentions and flies off into another county. Never to be seen again. You then say “mulligan,”…

    Day 9: A New Name

    Proclamation #4 “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.” (Revelation 2:17)             In our modern day we instinctively understand the value of a name. When I say Coke, Nike, GM, NFL, you immediately have a perceived sense of value and worth of these products. The name and branding of these products have a powerful influence, even if it does not register right away. A good…

    Day 10: Rod Of Iron

    Proclamation #5 “But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.” (Revelation 2:25-27)             Is Psalms 23 David declares that Gods Rod & Staff comfort him. This is a wonderful comparison. The Rod and the Staff are two different things. David finds comfort in each of them. Psalms 23 I believe hides an important point. The Rod or Scepter…
