March 20th, 2019 DAVID OLIVER What is biblical discernment and why is it Important?

In its simplest definition, discernment is nothing more than the ability to decide between truth and error, right and wrong. Discernment is the process of making careful distinctions in our thinking about truth. In other words, the ability to think with discernment is synonymous with an ability to think biblically.

First Thessalonians 5:21-22 teaches that it is the responsibility of every Christian to be discerning: "But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil." The apostle John issues a similar warning when he says, "Do not believe every spirit but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world" (1 John 4:1). According to the New Testament, discernment is not optional for the believer-it is required.

The key to living an uncompromising life lies in one's ability to exercise discernment in every area of his or her life. For example, failure to distinguish between truth and error leaves the Christian subject to all manner of false teaching. False teaching then leads to an unbiblical mindset, which results in unfruitful and disobedient living-a certain recipe for compromise.
Unfortunately, discernment is an area where most Christians stumble. They exhibit little ability to measure the things they are taught against the infallible standard of God's Word, and they unwittingly engage in all kinds of unbiblical decision-making and behavior. In short, they are not armed to take a decidedly biblical stand against the onslaught of unbiblical thinking and attitudes that face them throughout their day.

God's Word provides us with the needed discernment about every issue of life. According to Peter, God "has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence" (2 Peter 1:3). You see, it is through the "true knowledge of Him," that we have been given everything we need to live a Christian life in this fallen world. And how else do we have true knowledge of God but through the pages of His Word, the Bible? In fact, Peter goes on to say that such knowledge comes through God's granting "to us His precious and magnificent promises" (2 Peter 1:4).

Discernment -- the ability to think biblically about all areas of life -- is indispensable to an uncompromising life. It is incumbent upon the Christian to seize upon the discernment that God has provided for in His precious truth! Without it, Christians are at risk of being "tossed here and there by waves, and carried about by every wind of doctrine" (Ephesians 4:14).

Read His Word, Believe His Word, Speak His Word, and Do What What The Word Say Do. May the Holy Spirit equip us daily with all provisions received in Christ Jesus. Amen.

Scripture Reference: 2 Peter 1:3-4; Ephesians 4:14; First Thessalonians 5:21-22; James 1:22-25; Ephesians 1:3


December 22nd, 2018 DAVID OLIVER Father, I pray that the righteous shall rule. The word of God is the will of God. The Lord changes not. We have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and we do hold the thoughts of His heart. 1 Corinthians 2:16. We are made righteous through faith. We are the righteousness of God in Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:21

I pray that the Holy Spirit intercedes for our Nation that man would speak and do every deed wholeheartedly operating in righteousness. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). His blood cleanses us from all sin. Righteousness gives us confidence. Righteousness gives us boldness. Righteousness is the scepter of the Kingdom(Heb. 1:8). The righteous are as bold as a lion (Prov. 28:1).

God uses ordinary people to accomplish His purposes. Our ability comes through grace. Two important revelations every believer needs are an understanding of power and authority. This is not based on feeling but on faith. Faith comes by hearing the Word of God. We must combine the power of the Holy Spirit with the authority of the name of Jesus to move our enemies.

Father, I pray that your word will draw those in need of salvation to Christ shall receive salvation when they confess the word of God: “Belief in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31). “If you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9). “By grace are you saved through faith, and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God—not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8). “I have been crucified with Christ. We receive the power through the Holy Spirit Acts 1: 8.

The Lord will teach the righteous to war using His Word (Ps. 144:1). The Word of God is the sword of the Spirit and our source of wisdom. Speaking the Word of God becomes like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces (Jer. 23:29).

May the Word of God bestow fire and divine grace upon the righteous and the Holy Spirit interceding for us in Jesus Name we pray. Amen.


December 17th, 2018 Patricia Poole Please join with me in agreement, that We who call ourselves Christian, will completely submit to Our LORD , recognize HIS voice, Obey, and discover HIS purpose for our daily,hourly,life. That we take our place in HIS body, do all that HE leads us to and no other influence take place. We are HIS hands,feet and voice, HE waits on us to Be what we were created to be. Pray with me , Our life,our country depends on it. Thank you.


October 30th, 2018 DAVID OLIVER
I prayed to the Lord:

17 “Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you. 18 You show love to thousands but bring the punishment for the parents’ sins into the laps of their children after them. Great and mighty God, whose name is the Lord Almighty, 19 great are your purposes and mighty are your deeds. Your eyes are open to the ways of all mankind; you reward each person according to their conduct and as their deeds deserve.
Jeremiah 32 - New International Version (NIV)

20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Romans 1: New International Version (NIV)

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way, the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed, and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
Romans 1: 24-32 New International Version (NIV)


October 28th, 2018 Shirley Garcia I felt called to seek a group like this to pray for the upcoming election and for our Christian leaders. I am filled with joy to join others to pray with and claim our state for God's Kingdom. He has given us the authority to stand for Godly values and ask for God's covering and protection as we seek God's wisdom to ask our brothers and sisters to vote the Bible and God's values. Lord we ask in our humility and in boldness to turn the hearts of our nation back to you and seek your face.
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
and his ears are attentive to their prayer,
but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil. 1 Peter 3:12


September 4th, 2018 DAVID OLIVER "When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?" —Psalms 11:3

I believe our nation is in trouble today, probably more than I've seen in my lifetime. We are contending with issues that are causing the very foundation of our country to crumble. Our moral and spiritual roots are eroding, the economy is misleading, family life is disintegrating, and political forces are at unprecedented odds. There seem to be very few leaders who will take a stand for God and for His Word. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9



It can be tempting to believe that America has reached a point of no return. While these factors cause despair, we are reminded in Scripture that with God, nothing is impossible. No problem is too great for Him. Seasons of distress and uncertainty and hardship call for faithful, fervent prayer by God's people and remind us of our responsibility to humble ourselves before Almighty God. We cannot expect healing to come to our nation apart from obedience to God through His Holy Word.

For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
and his ears are attentive to their prayer,
but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil. 1 Peter 3:12

He came down from heaven, His words carry heaven’s faultless perfection. Read and Speak only the Word of God. “The word was made flesh, he lived among us, and we saw his glory, the glory that is his as the only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14).


God longs for His people to humble themselves and to seek forgiveness and pray for guidance. God's Word says, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord" (Psalm 33:12). The Bible commands that we repent of our sins and turn to Almighty God. And because we are confident that we serve a God of mercy and compassion, we know that He stands ready to respond to our cries out of the abundance of His divine wisdom.

It is a crucial time for us to individually and collectively seek God's divine intervention for the challenges facing us. We need to pray not only for our nation, but we need to pray for our leaders, for all those who govern us, that they will turn to God with humble hearts and follow Him. Our military leaders need our prayers as we have dedicated men and women serving on battlefields and sacrificing their blood to protect our nation and many innocent people around the world. God is faithful to bless those who turn to Him.

Pray that as a nation we would return to God. As we call on God, let us do so by genuine faith, believing that He hears our prayers. God can heal this great land, for which our forefathers fought and died. We need spiritual renewal, we need a revival in America, and we need each and everyone to pray. Lord, Hear Our Cry! —Franklin Graham

Amen!


March 15th, 2018 DAVID OLIVER I pray the Spirit of God in Christ Jesus search the hearts and minds of all who speak his word in Spirit and truth so they may become pure. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1John 1:9

Our source of power is the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. We build ourselves up in faith when we confess the Word of God. We experience great confidence when we understand the Word and walk in revelation.

The word God of is our seed. All power and authority have been given to us according to Genesis chapter 1. The tongue has the power of life and death,
and those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:21

“This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.
“What are you, mighty mountain? Before Zerubbabel, you will become level ground. Then he will bring out the capstone to shouts of ‘God bless it! God bless it!’” Zechariah 4:6-7

I pray that our local communities, cities and the State of Colorado.

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. 2 Chronicles 7:14-15

I pray that everyone speaks to their situations and circumstances that align with the word of God to see the manifestation in Spirit and flesh. We should pray without ceasing In Jesus Name. Amen.





February 13th, 2017 Lynn Marzinski I am praying for your daughter and her husband, Sharon. And here is my prayer for Donald Trump.

I pray for your safety. I pray that the Holy Spirit would guide your thoughts, words, and actions. I pray for your appointments, that the Lord would guide those He has put in place. I pray for you to be guided by the Lord so strongly that there would be a visible change for all the world to see. I pray for Congress, that a spirit of cooperation and goodwill prevail, and that bipartisan bickering becomes a thing of the past. I pray for revival in your heart and the hearts of your family, and at every level of our government, so that every knee will bend and every tongue proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of the Father.


February 13th, 2017 Sharon Melvin


February 13th, 2017 Sharon Melvin Pray for my daughter and her family. She grew up in a Christian home but has decided that God does not exist. Her husband is an Atheist college professor at UCLA. Her name is Kristi and her husband is Richie. This is very heavy on my heart. If anyone has any suggestions, I am open to them.


July 20th, 2015 Rennae MacFarlane Bob,
Will be praying!!!! Also that if there is a curse that reconciliation would be made.


July 20th, 2015 Bob Singleton Hello everyone.
Hey stand with me if you will.
 I've been praying for a few years for the area on the south end of downtown Denver. This is where the poor and broken of our area live. It's also the foundation and perhaps core of Denver.
I intend to start walking the area and praying and seeking revelation concerning the principality of the area. I am asking for a breakthrough now and before and after Sep 14th. That date is the end of the scriptural year of release and the beginning of the Jubilee when all were to return, each one to the land God gave his family. Good time for a breakthrough.
I'm going to map out the area and schedule my walks. I appreciate prayers and/or those who would walk and pray with me.


May 9th, 2015 Bob Singleton The challenge we face now is this:
Can we keep in mind that God wants to do good things - right now. By God's own purpose and decree he can be restrained if we doubt that. Our beliefs and words make the difference because when God made us in his image he gave us great authority to command things. 
We, including the church, have often said or thought that God is not involved, in effect that he is cold and uncaring. It's not that we say that intentionally but it's what has often come across. We've said that our poverty or our sickness may have been God's will. I repent for ever having doubted God's desire to do good for me, and for us all, right now, not later - immediately.
My repentance is more in my own heart than before God. God sees me and all of us as perfect. He's forgiven all our sin and our failures, putting them as far away as the east is from the west. So I'm not going to remind God of our failures but rather I thank him for declaring us righteous. But in my own heart I just wish we hadn't been that way and that's why repentance is important. It is a change of your own heart and THAT is what invites God into our immediate situation.
I don't blame the world for their sins and failures. They, are groaning, waiting for us to see and understand who we are and bring healing to the land. I don't blame the church either. It's a long and difficult road, this life in the midst of a fallen world. But we need to take hold of the vision and raise it up in our hearts.
The world is falling apart and our world is about to go into mayhem. They are going to need us, and they need to see us standing in the power and authority God has given us. Many signs point to MAJOR upheaval this fall, probably September. I don't think we can prevent that but we can lessen it's impact if we stand up on behalf of a loving God. 
Anybody that pays attention knows the signs and if we are going to stand in the gap, we need to know them too. 
Inflation is spiking skyward as America borrows so much that it will be unable to even pay on the debt. Our credit has about maxed out and that means the dollar itself will loose it's value. Meanwhile Saudi support for the dollar - called the Petrodollar - will become untenable because we are not protecting Saudi Arabia like we always have. Also, the Chinese are establishing a new world banking system known as AIIB and they have a coalition of twenty two nations, including England and Australia and western nations, that support this new money system.
War, beginning probably with Iran attacking the other Muslim nations around them and perhaps Israel too. All we have to do is listen. They are promising to do it and they are going nuclear. The Iranians hate the other Muslims almost as much as they hate us and they want the war - ground war.
We also have the spiritual signs. Prophetic statements coming out. The Shemitah and Jubilee. The blood moons.
So much to be aware of but the core of it all is that Jesus left this world so that the very spirit that was in him, with all it's power, would be multiplied in people like you and I.

Praise God for his plan and that he has included us this way.


October 9th, 2014 Rennae MacFarlane Thank You Amy Everette and Doug Abner,
We had an amazing look at what transformation can look like in the recent meetings on the Western Slope. Blessings, Rennae MacFarlane


October 9th, 2014 Rick Torrison Be encouraged, we are so excited about what God is doing in Colorado and around the nation.
We will be launching a new Forum group through Sentinel next week where you can connect all the groups around Colorado to the global transformation message and movement. Looking forward to sharing that with you soon.
