God speaks to His people!

God created the universe with speaking . . . “Let there be . . . ”

Today, through Jesus Christ, He lives in you. How do you learn to hear Him speaking into your heart, and really know it’s Him?

Kingdom Faith Ministries International is devoted to helping God’s people learn to hear and obey His still small voice. Deuteronomy 8 declares that God’s purpose in having His people wander in the wilderness for 40 years was to learn to hear and live by every word that proceeded from His mouth.

God is still speaking, and like the Israelites, we must learn how to hear Him with confidence and precision. Are you eager to hear what the Lord Jesus Christ is speaking today to those who have discovered how to find Him in the secret place and drink from His fountain of Living Water? He will invite you to sit on His throne if you overcome in the pursuit of hearing His voice (Revelation 3:21).

The Mechanism of Miracles
Thursday, February 04, 2016
Dr. Paul D. Norcross

I realized something new when our KFMI Director for Operations in Africa, called me late one night.  Earlier that afternoon I had been due to link up by satellite to teach a live session during an all night prayer assembly of 86 pastors in Kenya.  In the middle of opening the event, the electrical power in the city crashed!  They prayed fervently, and after a disconcerting length of time, power was restored shortly before I was due to teach.

Our Director, Pastor John, said that the devil could not win against something ordained by God.  Yes and Amen!

His comment got me thinking.  I began to think about why it is that satan cannot hinder God’s declared purposes. I am not talking about the Godly desires we all pray for.  I am talking about specific revelation from God.  Satan cannot stop what God ordains.

I thought of Jesus' declaration that the gates of hell could not prevail against revelation such as had just been given to Peter in Matthew 16:17-19:

(17)  And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

(18)  And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

(19)  And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

The rock in verse 18 is not Peter.  Jesus is saying that the rock is revelation like Peter had just spoken, that was given to him by the Father.  A church built (and operating) on revelation is what the gates of hell cannot prevail against!

I thought about the angel Gabriel who answered Mary that no rhema is impossible with God, in Luke 1:37.

For with God nothing (lit.no rhema speaking,” i.e. no revelation from God) shall be impossible.

I realized by the Holy Spirit that this is God's mechanism for the miraculous.

It is why when we enter His rest of Hebrews 4, which is

  • the secret place of Psalm 91:1,
  • the dining table of fellowship with Jesus Christ of Revelation 3:20-21,
  • the drinking from the Fountain of Living Water of Revelation 22:17, John 4:5-29  and 7:37-39,
  • the eating of the bread of life and His flesh and blood of John 6:26-69,
  • and the entering the door of David which no man can shut and no man can open of Revelation 3:7.

All of these are describing the place where we dialogue with the Revelation Giver.  He is the same who declared that man shall not live by bread alone but by every rhema speaking word that proceeds out of the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4).

Once given, the rhema revelation received is guaranteed when it is obeyed.  Get revelation from the time you spend alone with Christ and with the Father, and obey it.  This is the why and the how of ceasing from our works (Hebrews 4:9-11).  It is so that Christ can do His!

Hebrews 4:9-11:

 (9)  There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

(10)  For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.

 (11)  Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Allow me to repeat this again:

Once given to you, the rhema revelation received is guaranteed when it is obeyed.  You might recall that the great “faith hall of fame” Hebrews 11 chapter (by faith Abraham, by faith Enoch, by faith Noah…) should really be called the great “listening/fellowship hall of fame” chapter.

Why?  Because a careful reading of this chapter shows that before each of their exploits was a revelation from God, all based on the fellowship they kept with Him.  Faith is acting on revelation received, just as Romans 10:17 declares: 

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word [rhema = speaking] of God [lit. Christos in many common Greek texts such as: Lachmann, Tischendorf, Tregelles, Alford, Wescott & Hort].

So, rhema speaking/revelation from God is cultivated from that marvelous place of rest in His presence.  And when that rhema contains an assignment, we obey it.  Obedience to revelation rhema is the why and the how of ceasing from our works (Hebrews 4).  Christ accomplishes amazing things through us when we cease from interfering with our soulish “yes but…” reasoned unbelief and simply rest in His presence, listen to Him and obey what He says! 

This is why Jesus declared that He could do nothing of Himself (John 5:19-21, 30).  Why?  Precisely because Jesus did as we are to do – listen and obey the Father’s voice.

We enter this rest in the spiritual rest of relationship with Jesus Christ and with our heavenly Father.  In this place of rest, we receive stunning rhema revelation.  Once given, that revelation from God is guaranteed when it is obeyed. Revelation is ascertained.  It is not analyzed. And no rhema is impossible!

This is the why and the how of ceasing from our works.  Christ in you, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27) is waiting to express Himself through you and me!

It does not matter who the players are because, like Jesus, each of us is to make ourselves of no reputation.  What does matter is that we learn how to enter His rest, and then receive and act upon the rhema words that He will speak to us from the throne of God regularly and consistently.  Hebrews 12:25 and 1:3 give insight into the fact that He is speaking rhema constantly to us. Our heavenly Father and our Lord Jesus Christ are streaming live to us all the time!

So this is God’s mechanism for miracles:  hear His voice, and obey it.  Even 25 years out, Abraham finally obeyed and God produced His promised seed through Abraham and Sarai despite their advanced age (Romans 4:13-22).  When God gives a rhema word, it is a miracle done once we believe and act upon it.  Glory to God in the Highest!

It should not be at all surprising that the word for obedience, akouo, literally means to hear and to hearken, i.e. to listen and obey.  Jesus’s entire ministry was to listen to the Father and obey.

Hebrews 5:8-9:

(8)  Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience (akouo, to listen and obey) by the things which he suffered;

(9)  And being made perfect [teleios = complete], he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey (akouo, to listen and obey) him;

How marvelous to understand how to walk in the supernatural realm of miracles.  We are to simply posture our hearts in throne room presence of God, the sanctuary wherein Jesus is the minister (Hebrews 8:2), entering His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. 

We linger in His presence, we converse with Him and He with us.  In our daily dialogue, i.e. our daily gathering of manna, He gives us wonderful assignments and wisdom for our day. 

Such is the substance of miracles because God always performs His written and His rhema word.

How great is our God!

My Presence Shall Go Before You
Monday, January 18, 2016
Dr. Paul D. Norcross

My son, I desire for My presence to go before each one of My children.  How else shall those who don’t believe in Me know that you are My people?

It is just as Moses declared, and I confirmed, in Exodus 33.

 Exodus 33:14-17

 And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.

 And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.

 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.

And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.


You see, My presence enables My power and My healing to be released.  I am committed to loving and blessing My people, just as any good father is constantly vigilant for both the welfare and the pleasure of fellowship with his children.

Now let Me tell you how to engage My presence.

Look at Proverbs 3:5-6.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

To trust in Me is to not merely have faith in My promises.  It is to also continually dialogue, to confide in Me.  Acknowledging Me in all your ways is what engages My presence.

Get into the habit of taking your spiritual shoes off (i.e. as Moses did before the burning bush Exodus 3:5). 
The holy ground is the place and time that you invest in drawing near enough to Me to hear My still small voice (I Kings 19:12). 

I will always meet with you in David’s secret place of The Most High (Psalm 91:1), the tabernacle meeting place of Moses (Exodus 29:42-43), and the dinner table of My fellowship (Revelation 3:20).

Then shall My presence go before you, that all people will know that I am your God, and you are My sons and daughters whom I hold very dear.  You have found grace in My sight.
