The Age of Miracles


The Age of Miracles

“God also bearing witness both with
signs and wonders, with various miracles, and
gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will.”
HEBREWS 2:4

When people are healed and delivered it gives us a taste of what conditions are like when Christ has preeminence over all things. Miracles give us a glimpse of a future time when He will make all things new and there will be “no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:4). What we consider miraculous in this Age will be commonplace in the Age to come.

Fire Within You





Fire Within You

A fire is most noticeable when it is ablaze, and the flames are huge. That is the time that the most people will come and gather around it for warmth and also to watch it burn. But that kind of flame is one that needs constant maintenance. If there is not the proper preparation, it only lasts for a short while.

My child, I have not created you to burn brightly, and then to die away. Know that what I have put inside of you is special and is meant to last. Every form of fire has its time and its purpose.

Know that when you are feeling like your passion and zest for life is running low, run to Me. Time spent in My presence will give you the fuel and inspiration you need to keep running the race and to keep burning brightly.

You were made to give warmth to those who are cold and to give inspiration to those who despair of life. When you go out in the world, sometimes the darkness may seem overwhelming, but trust that what I have put in you will shine all the more brightly, the greater the darkness. So do not hide, nor be ashamed of what I have put inside you.

Be bold and let the passion inside of you shine and ignite others!

No Testimony Without a Test


No Testimony Without a Test

“They overcame [the dragon] by the blood
of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony;
and they did not love their lives to the death.”
REVELATION 12:11

Just as there is no victory without a fight, no Crown without a Cross, so there is no Testimony without a test. Our Testimony is not a thing that is said, but it is a LIFE that is lived. We overcome the Dragon by the word of this Testimony. This Testimony demonstrates the preeminence of Christ over sin, self, and satan: and it is a violent thing, a proactive thing, not a passive thing. The Lord’s Testimony is actually strengthened when the enemy comes against it, for in the end we see that Christ is, indeed, preeminent. If we are really demonstrating this then we should be getting stronger spiritually.
That is not to say we will always feel good and always have a smile on our face while engaging the enemy. But regardless of our outward condition, our inward condition will be continually strengthened as we bear the Testimony of Jesus.

Power Up in Me


Power Up in Me

My child, come away with me for a while and I will give you rest for your soul. In the world, there are many things to take care of, but in my presence, you can let go of your cares.
Come and be refreshed in me. Come to hear my words and allow them to wash over you. For my words are life and they will give you power and strength. In your heart are many needs that you cannot keep going, without them getting met.
So do not wait until you are empty, but instead, come to power up in me. Then you will see that everything you put your hands to will be with ease and peace. What you set out to do will prosper and yield good fruit, when you have been filled up in my presence. Amen.

Heavenly Perception


Heavenly Perception

“God, who is rich in mercy, because of
His great love with which He loved us… raised us up together,
and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.”
EPHESIANS 2:4,6

The difference between those who overcome and those who do not overcome is a difference in their own PERCEIVED position. We all ought to perceive that in Christ we are seated in the heavenly places. We cannot overcome without this perception, this seeing, this revelation. If our perception is earthly, we will remain earthly. If our perception is heavenly, we will overcome.

Fit to Follow


Fit to Follow

“Whoever desires to save his life will lose it,
but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.”
MATTHEW 16:25

Some will say, “I am willing to die now that I have followed.” The person who knows the Cross says, “I am fit to follow now that I have died.”
Why is this important? Because Jesus knows that no human being is qualified to follow Him until they have first died. Jesus knows a man cannot live until he has died and been raised to life again. He therefore bids us to die right away, that He may raise us from the dead by His Indwelling Spirit and place us immediately upon the correct path.

Rejoice in tha victory

Apostle Colette Toach

Rejoice in the Victory

Sometimes when you begin to think that a battle is lost, that is the moment when everything turns for the worst. But that is not the case, my child. Look at every situation for the blessing that I have put in there. It may be hidden, but when you train your eyes to see the victory that I have given you in every battle, you will look at every obstacle with completely new eyes.
The enemy only wants you to think that you have lost or failed. But he has already been defeated over 2000 years ago. I have already given you the victory over every circumstance or trap the enemy has set. Seek out every blessing I have given you and stand as the warrior I have called you to be.
Every time you step out on the battlefield, know what the outcome is because the enemy has already been defeated. So do not be discouraged no matter what your situation looks like. Get up and move forward knowing you will stand victorious after every battle!
