How To Have More Intimacy In Your Marriage - "Song of Solomon"

I love teaching on love!  God is a hopeless romantic.  That probably where I get it.  Intimacy was not invented in Hollywood, but in the heart of God.  True intimacy is not watching two people on the internet having sex.  This is Satan's deception and actually blocks true intimacy in a real marriage.  There is a clear pathway to true intimacy, and that's what we all are really looking for.  All of us desire it, whether we want to admit it or not.  We want to share the details of our heart, mind and body with the one to whom we committed our life.  But far too many marriages sadly lack in true intimacy.  There is a solution!  It's found in the wisdom of Solomon and his true love he found with the Shulamite maiden. The pure passion of his descriptions overwhelm us.  I'm glad that Paul wrote to Timothy that all scripture is given by inspiration and is profitable.  Little wonder that the Jewish people didn't allow their children to read Song of Solomon until they were 18!  This incredible book fully describes the very intimate thoughts Solomon had.  

We all desire intimacy.  My definition of earthly happiness, is the number of close friends we have over a lifetime. But the greatest of all should be our spouse.  The one we have committed our life, our heart and our body to.  There are some real hidden secrets in the "Song of Solomon" like the nine fragrances of the book express the nine fruits of the Spirit. I strongly encourage you to purchase this course from Kingdom Life University at: under the "Elective" courses. Take it with your spouse and see what God can do in re-establishing more intimacy in your relationship.  It will really work if you are both open to God's revelation.

You Have Authority to Release People from Their Sin!

One of the greatest truths I have learned in freeing other people from their past is the authority Jesus has given us.  Found in John 20:21-22 "And when Jesus had said this, He breathed on them and said to them, 'Receive the Holy Spirit.  If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained."

I have been practicing this for many years.  It all started in a service that I held in Salem, Oregon.  I was standing behind a man in the service and when the leader told us to turn around and greet people, he turned to me. I could smell alcohol on his breath and on his body.  I knew he was an alcoholic if he smelled on Sunday morning.  Then I told him, "After today sir, Jesus is telling me you will never take another drink of alcohol."  I went up to speak and the man ran out of the service. I think he was fearful that I would embarrass him. I felt condemned that I had chased him away.  But not known to me, he slipped back in the back of the auditorium.  When I gave the invitation, he came to the front.  I led him to Jesus and he repeated the sinners prayer.  Then I told him, "Jesus just told me to give you this message.  Your sins are forgiven.  Everything you have done before today, He has totally forgiven.  You are released from your past sins".  He burst into tears with a loud groan. He fell to his knees and began to weep.  For quite awhile he knelt there until there was literally a puddle of tears.  Then he got up and told me, "All my condemnation that led me to drink is gone!"  I went back 8 months later to hold another School of Evangelism in that city and who is sitting in the front row? The man set free 8 months earlier.  He then told me, "I have never taken another drink after Jesus freed me that day you prayed with me." 

 Let's practice this great authority ON EARTH!

Greatest Power in the Universe! What is it?

That is a good question.  What is the world's greatest power? Is it evil?  Is it science with it's great discoveries?  Is it education with it's power to influence? It is atomic energy? Is it money? What is the world's greatest power?  The power that I refer to is effectual enough to change eternity.  This power is essential enough to be the GREATEST POWER ON EARTH AND IN HEAVEN.  It is the power of love.  "Love never fails..."  Says I Corinthians 13:8 It always get's it's desired results.  It can change a marriage, change a father's relationship to a wayward son or daughter.  It can change the course of a nation, the heart of a people.  When embraced it moves mountains, turns anger and hate into forgiveness and healing. The power of love circumvents distance and on the quantum physics level brings heaven to earth. It travels through space and can touch someone on the other side of the world. It has no distance, no barriers, no limit, no boundaries. The mystery of love is it's power to transform. Though it can't be seen with the naked eye, it can be felt in a broken heart. The words of love bring health to our bones, to our bodies, to our minds.  "For God so loved" are words of hope, future, forgiveness, healing, life and eternity.

Praying Through the Tabernacle - Empowering your prayer life!

I asked God for help in empowering my prayer life for 2020.  He helped me discover some real keys!  The Old Testament Tabernacle of the Wilderness is a type of Christ.  The articles in the tabernacle and the pieces of furniture become prayer stations for beautiful revelation of Christ and praying through these stations has greatly empowered my prayer time.  It have gone from 20 minutes a day to over an hour and it's increasing daily.  Wow!  Try this for yourself and see what it will do for you.  How do I pray through the tabernacle?  Let me explain:  
1. Enter His gates with thanks giving and praise.
2. Brazen Altar - the power of the shed blood of Christ at the cross.
3. Bronze Laver - Reflection of our identity in Christ.  "I AM" crucified, buried, risen, seated and now reign with Christ.
4. Now enter the holy place.  5 pillars a picture of "Grace".
5. The Menorah to my left - Lights the holy place & pictures the Holy Spirit's work.
6. Table of Shew Bread - The wonderful word of God. Pray through some scriptures.
7. Altar of Incense - This is the prayers of the saints.  I pray for my family, my pastors, my government, for marriages that I know need prayer and finally for the homeless, poor, widows, orphans and foster children.
8. Now I go into the "Holy of Holies". This is where the Ark of the Covenant was kept.  Which is my body as the temple of the Holy Spirit.  We are actually called the "Naos" in Greek, which is the N.T. "Holy of Holies" in Romans 12:1-2.  I now worship, listen to God's voice, celebrate the greatness, goodness and love of God!
Believe me, this has changed my morning prayer time and made it come ALIVE!  I challenge you to give it try and see what it does for you.  Watch this short video to inspire you to do the same.

How To Issue Divine Restraining Orders Against Demons & Satan!

Awesome!  When we realize our God-given spiritual authority that we now have against the kingdom of darkness. Remember, Jesus was manifest to "take away our sins" and to "destroy the works of the devil". (I John 3) He does that through us, His early presence of us His body.  We are His body on earth now with all the spiritual authority of heaven behind us.  Paul defines us as the "Fullness of Him bodily" (Eph. 1:23)

One of the great tools of our spiritual warfare and authority is to understand the court of heaven.  This is where spiritual legal documents are signed and delivered. Such as Jesus taking the scroll of redemption of planet earth from the Father in Revelation 5. What are "restraining orders"?  We understand them on earth to be court appointed restrictions placed on someone who threatens us or might endanger our lives.  Abused women, for example, can place a restraining order on a man who might try to kill or wound her.  They have legal restrictions and enforcers. Police might show up to arrest the intruder.  In heaven, "restraining orders" are legal documents placed against demons, fallen angels and Satan. God enforces these orders by His angels, the blood of Jesus and Jesus name! We can place them against spirits of infirmities that attack our bodies, against spirits of poverty that try and keep us broke, and against any kind of demon, fallen angel or even Satan himself.  The devil recognized the legal boundaries placed around Job and challenged it with God. God had placed a hedge around Job to bless him and prosper his health, family and life. If it was true in the Old Testament with Job, how much more now that we are risen with Christ and seated "with Him" in heavenly places.  Ephesians 1:3 

I have been practicing this and writing in my daily journal the answers to this kind of enforcement. It's working!  I can see a change in our ministry.  I feel a real release and joy over this coming year of 2020!  I challenge you to do the same.  Buy a personal journal if you don't already have one, and begin charting how God is working through these "restraining orders".  Write out a list of those you are opposing through the blood of Jesus and in His name. And start declaring your divine rights!

Jesus Commitment to His Bride!

There were three major points in history that Jesus made as a gift to us, His bride. The first was before the foundation of the world.  He was committed to be the sacrifice for His bride before the world was created. Ephesians 1:4 "Just as He chose us in Him, before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him love."  God had us in His mind even before He created all things.  His everlasting love for the bride of His own Son, has never been out of His mind.

Second He gifted us the fulfillment of all righteousness.  When Christ said, "It is finished" on the cross, He crossed the point of fulfillment of all things for us His bride. Now we have perfect standing with the Father through His very own Son. We come, not in anything we have to offer, but through the complete righteousness of Christ alone.  The Father accepts us into His family to be a forever bride of His own Son based totally on the completion of all righteousness through Christ. Absolutely nothing we bring can be accepted.  It was finished and the law was fulfilled through a perfect sacrifice.

Third, Christ takes the scroll in Revelation 5 and completes the ownership and possession over earth for His bride.  John is weeping greatly as he sees the scroll of redemption of planet earth held in the hands of the Father.  But no one is worthy to take the scroll. Men have tried throughout the ages.  Nebuchadnezzar tried, the Caesars tried, Hitler tried, and finally the antichrist will try, but none are worthy.  John greatly desires the curse be lifted and all suffering released from planet earth.  He sees in the redemption scroll the last hope.  Then one steps up... the Lion and the Lamb!  He alone is worthy and John stops weeping.  An angel appears and says to John, "Stop weeping, and behold".  That is the sound of all hope for this planet. Jesus finally secures for His bride, the ownership over all creation.  The animals, plants and all creation breaks out in rejoicing!  Revelation 5:13 "And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying:  'Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever.'"   John says that Jesus has made us a kingdom of kings and priests unto our God!  He has done all this for us, His bride.

Year End Message - What did God Say? Dr. Jerry Brandt

As we close out this year, we see that God has given powerful revelation during 2019 that has transformed people's lives.  Remember the key to overcoming is found in Romans 6.  First is to know, second is to reckon and third is to yield.  Unless you know a truth, it cannot transform your life. What are we to know?
1. That we have already been made complete in Christ in our "spirit man".
2. That we should not keep asking God for what he has already done!  Healing is inside of you.  Revival is already in you.  It's waiting for you to release it in your city!  "He has already given you everything you need for life and godliness through your knowledge of Jesus Christ." II Peter1:3-4
3. That we are not begging God to "come" and visit us.  We are His "habitation" not His "visitation".  So many people are crying for revival and it's already inside of you.. release and declare it. So many worship songs are giving us the wrong message... begging God to come into our midst!  No wonder we are not seeing His power.  Don't discredit Jesus promise to abide "in you".  John 14:16-17
What are we to reckon?
1. Reckoning is releasing your faith to receive what you already know.  It's faith in action!  Believing that what God said is true!  Come on, let's get on the right side of the crucifixion. 
2. Once you believe it, now you are ready to "yield" to it.
What does it mean to yield?
1. Presenting your body as a living sacrifice.  
2. Confessing with your mouth, what you believe in your heart.
3. Your words are the activation of your faith.  Don't ever, ever, ever confess anything with your mouth that does not align with the word of God about you.
This video expresses the things God has shown us this last year.  Embrace it, receive it, believe it, declare it and you will manifest it!  Jerry's new book gives a detailed and powerful expression of the above truth.  You can order the book here.
