Separation is Necessary for Elevation


When a snake advances to different stages of its live, the process of that advancing is the shedding of its skin. Well, the equivalent of that process for us as human beings would be the shedding of environments and people.

The bible said that when God called Abram, who later became Abraham, God did not ask him how his family was, is all well, etc.
Instead, the first thing God said was remove yourself from your country, and kindred. In other words, separate yourself from your environment and those that you are familiar with.

Now, this may seem somewhat harsh, but this is God’s way of separating the sheep from the goats, so that the sheep can hear the Shepard clearly.

One of the initial signs of promotion or elevation to one’s life begins with discord, or challenges with those that are closest to you, or the place that you are presently, seems as if you have either out grown it, or it’s rejecting of you for no apparent reason.

In reality, your season has come to an end for those folks and that place. All that you needed from them has been achieved, and simultaneously qualified you for the next stage of your life.

To bring them along with you, would disrupt this natural growth process that has been specifically designed to elevate you. 

People that are not progressing in life are those that refuse to let go of the people and places that has exhausted its purpose for them. This is why death is necessary, because life gives purpose and death is the conclusion of purpose.

Anyone who resists this natural growth process literally welcomes a life of frustration, confusion and repetition of places and people that they know are hindering them from achieving more that life has to offer.

The chronicles of your life should always read how your experiences (good and bad) with those places and people have made you a solution to someone else’s problem.  Those people and places were God’s chisel at that particular time used to carve you into what he’s called you to be. Meaning they were necessary but not permanent.

So, bid farewell, and proceed forward with the expectation and confidence that better is ahead awaiting your arrival.

Seeds producing after its kind


It is concretely cemented into my understanding, that no human being, regardless of race, color, or creed has become who they are overnight. In fact I stand in the face of all opposition that, that person is a result of a seed or seeds that was implemented a long time ago that has been natured over the years, and has now produced what you see in this person today.

A few days ago I had the distinct pleasure of assisting my Pastor with a christening ceremony. While waiting to be called on to give words of encouragement to the parents of the infant, I began to look in the audience and wondered if the audience was aware of this grand opportunity that is being presented to us. An opportunity to destroy some thing in this child’s life that would have been passed on from previous generations of both parents that would result in bad relationships, divorce, poverty, sickness and diseases which are all considered ancestral and bloodline curses.

The bible tells us that every seed produces after its kind Genesis 1: 11-12. But what is seed, and at the same time what do we mean by kind? Well, in the natural sense a seed can be considered as a man’s semen, a fertilized part of a plant, capable of developing into a new plant or in simple term, the beginning of anything. As for the word kind it is defined as a class or group of individual objects, people, animals, etc., of the same nature or character, or classified together because they have traits in common.

If every seed produces after its kind, then it stands to reason that we are the sum total of our ancestors. As proof of this, have you ever hear an older relative said that you walk, sound or even behave like your grand uncle, aunt etc? Now this grand uncle/aunt had probably died 20 years prior to you being born. Meaning a) you’ve never met them and b) you’ve never studied their behavior or traits to become like him. So how is it humanly possible for you to imitate this person so accurately whom you’ve never met?

Here is the revelation, that I am certain once understood will change the way you view people and at the same time cause you to re-visit who you’ve considered having children with. In the natural sense of things a man’s seed joins with a woman’s egg to produce a human being. What many folks are not aware of is that at the same time there are spiritual forces such as curses that were never broken off the parent’s life have now passed on to the child. The other two notable times that this occurrence happens would be during marriages where the couples become one, and during sexual intercourse. The general labeling of this process is called transferring of spirits. This is why the spirit in operation must be identified, and removed or broken, instead of attacking the person who is only a puppet to the will of that particular spirit.

Just for a few seconds, indulge me as I make it even clearer to you the science of these actions. For the sake of this teaching I will use a homosexual as an example. A homosexual never went to school to become a homosexual, meaning he did not sit in a classroom with like persons and trained uniformly emulating women’s actions and behavior, right? Then how is it that a homosexual in France, Belgium, The Bahamas, Australia, Japan or any place in the world for that matter, all behave and have identical traits and mannerisms, even though they’ve never met each other, never trained or practiced together, having absolutely no relations? Ladies and gentlemen I present to you the spirit of homosexuality. That person is only an agent of this spirit operating in him. So, again the law says, every seed produces after its kind, this kind in which we speak of here is homosexuals meaning a group, class a particular breed and the seed is the spirit who has invaded the inner man (mind) of this person and causes him to behave and think like every other homosexual without ever having to train or practice to be uniform in behavior. I want to make unequivocally clear; my example is not to bash homosexuals in any way fashion or form, but only using this as an example to bring about a general spiritual truth.

The bible goes on to tell us, “For a good tree can not bring forth corrupt fruit; neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by its own fruit”. It goes on to say, “A good man out of the good treasures of his heart brings forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasures of his heart brings forth that which is evil, for out of the abundance of his heart his mouth speaks Luke 6:43-45.

Bottom line, you can not consistently be what you are not or what is not in your heart. Your heart/mind is where these seeds have been deposited and because of the abundance or growth of these seeds, you now behave according to whatever those seeds are… wow!

So in embracing this opportunity of christening this child, I carefully explain to the parents and god parents, how the child is not only a result of physical seed but spiritual seeds as well. Seeds nonetheless which they can not see but is just as real as the physical seed that they do see. I was then given the charge to pray for the child. It was at this point, that I realize the reality of my obligation to God and this child to exercise my God given wisdom in breaking the ancestral, generational, and bloodline curses such as cancers, poverty, sexual immoral spirits, sickness and disease and any spirit that will hinder this child from positive progress, achievement and advancement. I then began to loose all spiritual blessing that God has blessed us with in heavenly places Ephesians 1:3.

The thought of this entire episode was quite exhilarating for me, because through the prompting of the Spirit of truth (Holy Spirit) I was able to give this child a fighting chance for a successful life, not being hindered by curses.

My question to you my faithful readers, what curses have hovered over your life that has caused you not to succeed or achieve what God has placed you here for? Ok! Maybe you have difficulty in identifying them, so let me assist you. Grammy, had high blood pressure, mom have high blood pressure now you have developed high blood pressure, as you can see it’s a generational curse. Another example, Grand daddy had kids out of wedlock, daddy had kids out of wedlock now you are following the same pattern of having kids out of wed lock. What about this one? Great grand daddy was broke, grand daddy was broke; daddy broke, and now guess what you’re broke. Let us not forget the all too common one witchcraft. Grammy worked witchcraft to control others; mom did the same thing now you are doing it in an attempt to have your own way and to control others. So far we’ve discovered four generational spirits and they are the spirit of infirmity, the spirit of sexual immorality that resulted in kids being born to unwed parents, the spirit of poverty and finally the spirit of witchcraft one of the nastiest spirits one can encounter.

Now that we’ve identify just a few of many curses that one can possess, what do we do now? Well, we must follow the biblical law for breaking curses and that is, we must first confess our iniquity/sin (which are the curses we’ll call by name) and the iniquity/sin of our fore fathers because the truth is it all began with the fore fathers then we must break each one in the name of Jesus Christ Leviticus 26: 40-42.

So as we’ve understood today, the lives of people and the way they think and behave is a direct result of curses or blessing that have been deposited unknowingly by both parents from previous generations. However, for the most part these children are left defenseless in a world that is saturated by evil orders such as principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places, because the parents lack the knowledge to break or even identify the curses. So now it runs rampant in the lives of the parents and the child and even the children’s, children.

My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge, because thou have rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee and I will also forget thy children Hosea 4:6


Heavenly Father, once again I thank you for your wisdom, for your word declares, it is the principal thing Therefore, I decree wisdom, knowledge and understanding over every reader of this article, and simultaneously break every spiritual cord, shackle, and chain of ignorance to your word. I now call on the fire and brimstone of heaven that had once rained down on Sodom and Gomorrah to rain on the bad seeds that have been deposited in the lives of my readers to make repetitious generational curses in their family lineage and that they all be destroy indefinitely it in the name of Jesus Christ.

Bewitched!


“O foolish Galatians who had bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ had been evidently set forth crucified among you Galatians. 3:1.”

These are the words written by the Apostle Paul, in his letter to the church of Galatia. In his letter he used the word bewitched to convey the understanding that the Galatian church had been mislead or placed under some kind of spell in order to cause them to do or believe things that they would not normally agree with, particularly after being witnesses of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. 

In our teaching today it is my desire to bring to you this very scenario of being bewitch in everyday living. How it is used as a common tool for control, the science behind it and its affect.

During the seventies there was a popular TV series called bewitched, where Elizabeth Montgomery who played Samantha, a witch in the show, could not resist using her spells or her ability to bewitch others to gain control only to make things turn out the way she desired, totally ignoring the will and desires of others to achieve her objectives.

Now, what does the word bewitch mean? The word bewitch mean to Cast a spell on and gain a magical control over someone or to captivate someone completely without physical restraints. So, if being bewitch does not require physical restraints, then how can a sound minded person be brought under the power or control of another, through the means of being bewitched?

Well, in order to understand this, you must first understand that the process of bewitching requires complete and total deception, meaning convincing one to believe something that is not true. At the same time it requires the victim’s participation by entertaining the one who is unknowingly bewitching them.

An example of this would be as follows: a man is in love with his wife and family, all of a sudden he becomes friendly with a female co-worker that he’s attracted to but, because of his marital commitment he keeps his distance. However she feels the same way about him and pursues him, having zero respect for his commitment to his wife and family. She now expresses her love for him, saying to him how handsome and strong he is etc. He now entertains her and becomes captivated by her and begins to do things that he would not do under normal circumstances. The plot thickens by him leaving his wife and children and moving in with this woman and her children. Neglecting his financial commitments and responsibilities that he is obligated to perform with his family. Not to mention him, faithfully financially providing for the other woman and her children while his wife and children suffers. Is this guy crazy? No! He’s been bewitched, meaning that there is a spirit of control over him manipulating him to believe something that is not true; to the point his family becomes the sacrifice for his lustful desires.

What happened to this man who was once in love with his family? Well, the later part of this man is not the same man that we spoke of originally and I will prove it. In the book of Proverbs 6:32 it reads, “whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding: he that does it destroys his own soul”. Now let’s break this scripture down so we can get a clearer understanding of what is actually being said here.

This scripture explains the spiritual aspect behind this type behavior. It starts by revealing to us that when one breaks a command of God in this case adultery, he is not aware of the sequence of events that will take place over a period of time. If you’ve notice the text did not say he who engages in adultery, instead the word commit is used which means to pledge, bind, obligate or become dedicated to something or someone.

Scripture further reveals that this consistent violating of God’s law, again, in this case adultery is destroying his soul. One’s soul involves their feelings, thoughts; mind etc. basically the administrator of their body. So if his soul is being destroyed, you can now understand why this once sensible man becomes impaired in his judgments and decision making.  His innocent entertaining of this lady that he initially knew was not good for him, somehow convinced him of a lie which he clearly accepted opening the door for not only the spirit of adultery but also deception, soul ties, mood swings, lying, being irresponsible and the list goes on.

Eventually these spirits take over, especially if this couple is active in their adulterous act (transferring of spirits). The end result for this man is he has becomes an entirely different person. For lack of a better word he has becomes a fool! To the point that “when” not if this lady has affairs on him he somehow reasons it out in his mind and eventually accepts it only in an effort to sustain and maintain in his mind this false relationship where he unknowingly is being manipulated.

This scenario is played out in all sectors of our society; unfortunately it frequently ends in divorce, violence, broken homes and sometimes even death. It usually ends this way because those that address it, addresses it from a natural or physical stand point, believing that they can beat sense into the person or try public humiliation to bring about a change of heart. NEWS FLASH YOU CAN NOT BEAT SENSE INTO A SPIRIT, OR EVEN HUMILATE THAT SPIRIT.

Until you address the source which is the spirit that is influencing that person and not the person themselves, you are in fact fighting a losing battle, in which you are guaranteed failure as your end result. In the book of Mark 1:22-26 Jesus encountered a man in the synagogue that had an unclean spirit. The text goes on to say, “And he cried out, let us alone what have we to do with thee thou Jesus of Nazareth?” Many folks miss this and believe that the man cried out, instead it was the unclean spirit in the man speaking through the man. As proof of this the text further states the unclean spirit said what have “we” to do with thee, which is additional evidence that not only is it one spirit speaking but numerous spirits.

The Apostle revealed in his letter to the Ephesian Church this revelation, “For we wrestle/fight not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places (all four groups being spiritual).

So what am I saying to you my readers? STOP FIGHTING THE PERSON AND BEGIN FIGHTING THE SPIRIT THAT IS INFLUENCING OR HAVE BEWITCHED THE PERSON. That person is under a nasty deceiving spell that they’re not even aware of. This will take more than just your average prayers, because as I’ve explained already you are dealing with a host of evil spirits. Jesus said this kind comes out only through prayer and fasting Matthew 17:21.

Prayer and fasting is the only successful solution because prayer and fasting does the following:
  • Break the bands of wickedness
  • Undo heavy burdens
  • Set the captives free
  • Break every yoke
  • Restores health quickly
  • Causes one understanding to break forth as the morning
These are all the positive results of a genuine fast according to Isaiah 58:6,8. in an effort to get rid of “THIS KIND”.

Heavenly father thank you for giving me the keys to the kingdom, I now bind the prince of the power of the air that rules over these unclean spirits that have bewitched folks to commit habitual sins. I bind the prince of darkness and the power of darkness in Jesus name. I now, by your authority loose these people and break the pad locks off their spiritual cages in the matchless name of Jesus Christ. Amen!

I need clarity!


Clarity is defined as the state or quality of being clear or transparent to the eye or to the understanding of someone. It is interesting to know that according to the books of Proverbs, wisdom is the principle thing. However, it does not end there; it goes on to read that in all our receiving of wisdom we must simultaneously acquire understanding.

In reading this particular scripture, I was coerced in and by my mind to actually consider what was being said to me. In the course of pondering that thought, I concluded that wisdom is entirely different from understanding, quite obvious right? Nonetheless, having wisdom about anything without an understanding of it creates confusion.

So, the question could be asked, what is the difference between wisdom and understanding in our quest to achieve clarity? And why both are needed to make sound judgments, decisions and the ability to decipher the fullness of confusing and perplexing areas of our lives? Well, wisdom in its simplest form is possessing the knowledge to discern between right and wrong or good and bad. On the other hand understanding, again in its concise form comprehends how something work, operates or function.

Well, what does this have to do with clarity you may ask? It has everything to do with clarity because none can function independently of itself. Together both should be used in unison to bring about the fullness, or as we would say the bigger picture of any and all situations.

As Christians, we, for the most part, become unclear as to what is going on in our lives concerning troubling matters. In particular, those stubborn, persistent and repetitious negative occurrences that make absolutely no sense. An example of this would be you’re faithful in the paying of your tithe and offerings. However, it is evident you’ve plunged more into debt than before your offertory commitment. Another example, God made it clear to you that this is the man/woman you were supposed to marry, it has also been confirmed by faithful and sound people of God, but at present, it appears as if this person was specifically assigned by Satan to drive you insane. What about that job you’ve   prayed and fasted for, it finally came through, but you’re treated on that job like something stuck at the bottom of someone’s shoe. What about that house or business that you’ve been tithing from not to mention the countless prayers concerning that house or business. However, none of that stopped it from being posted in the local daily for foreclosure because the funds weren’t there to sustain it.

At this point, I think most of you would agree that it would be insane not to ask the question, “God are you playing a game with me”? Or “God where are you in all of this.” A more typical statement by Christians would be, GOD I NEED CLARITY!

Jeremiah the prophet of God, in the book of Jeremiah 29, wrote a letter unto the residue of the elders, and to the priest, the prophets and to all Israel Whom Nebuchadnezzar had carried away captive from Jerusalem to Babylon. In this letter, he explained that it was God that was allowing this to happen. Also that they should begin building houses, planting gardens, exchanging marriage vows and not only seek the peace of that city but pray to God that the city will have peace so that they would be at peace. To add insult to injury, God further declares through the writings of Jeremiah, that they will inhabit that land for seventy years. Anyone that prophesies or speaks of visions or dreams that are contrary to the seventy years of captivity that God has ordained has prophesied and dreamed falsely.

I am confident before Jeremiah’s letter the people of Israel must have wondered how could this be. How could God allow a heathen nation, who don't even recognize him, to uproot his people from a land that he’s given them? Also, they are now under the leadership of a heathen king. At this point, we can conclude that they definitely needed clarity because it seemed as if God had forsaken them. So, in essence, they possessed the wisdom that they were being held captive by Babylon, but before the letter, they had no understanding, which I am sure, brought them to the point of confusion.

Jeremiah’s letter brought about that understanding to compliment the wisdom that they already possessed that equaled clarity.

What am I saying to you, my readers? I am saying, you possess the wisdom which is only a part of the whole This wisdom has also dictated to you that you are in debt, your marriage is failing, your home and business is in foreclosure, etc.  I am also aware that you’re frustrated and ready to give up and walk away from it all. Nevertheless, it is only the lack of understanding as to why this is all happening, and have you confined to a confused and distressed state. I am here as an oracle of God to inform you that God is with you now more than ever, Psalms 46:1. Thus, you could be judging God foolishly based on wisdom alone and not the understanding from him to accompany it that will bring about clarity.

The Apostle Paul in his letter to the Corinth church said, “For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when that which is perfect (complete or whole) comes, then that which is in part shall be done away with 1Corinthians 13:9-10. So it is evident in this scripture that the confusion to our problem is due to us prematurely judging the whole based on the part of what is being presented to us, again producing confusion.

Please! Before I proceed any further, begin to ask God to forgive you of your miss judgments and the negative words that you’ve said concerning your unclear situations. Now, ask him for the understanding that you need to bring clarity to your situation.

Back to Jeremiah’s letter, Jeremiah said in his letter that after the completion of the seventy years in Babylon. Then God will visit them and perform his word towards them and cause them to return unto their land. God further states that he alone knows the thoughts that he thinks towards us, and they are thoughts of peace and not evil, to give us an expected end. Thank you JESUS this is excellent news, my readers because it suggests to me that in the midst of my seemingly insurmountable troubles THIS IS ONLY APART OF GODS OVERALL PLAN FOR MY LIFE, THAT MUST CONCLUDE IN PEACE, JOY AND THE MANIFESTATION OF MY EXPECTATION OF HIM… Glory to the name of Jesus!

So, what is the reality of all of this? Well, the reality of all of this is your crying, frustration, mood swings, fasting, praying, complaining murmuring and coming in agreement with others for God to bring change, will not alter, delete or change the pre-assigned time by God to your trouble. Know that this is a testing of your faith, which is producing patience. But only in the completion of that patience, will you become complete or be restored, James 1: 3-4. God is a God of divine purpose, and to every purpose, there is a time and season. A purpose is the original intent of something or someone, and only time and season can unveil what God has purposed in and for us.   

Do not allow the size of your problem to frustrate you, but instead ask God to reveal to you the understanding to bring clarity and a piece of mind while you endure the time and season of that trouble that will conclude in good for you. “For we know that ALL things (good and bad) are working in harmony for our good Romans 8:28.


Heavenly Father, thank you once again, for now, word, that brings comfort to your people. This is another piece of evidence that amplifies your sovereignty. I ask you now in the name of your son Jesus Christ to impart patience and understanding to the wisdom of your people to bring about clarity in the midst of their challenges. Finally, Father, I pray for peace that passes all understanding in the matchless and mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen!

The Foot of pride.


The word feet and foot are almost always symbolic of power and authority throughout the Holy Bible. It is also an indicator that whatever is under the feet of something or someone it is also subject to it.

A few examples of this could be found in the following scriptures: Psalm 8:6 which states, Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet. Psalm 47:3 says, He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet. Also Psalm 18:38 says, I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.

In all the above scriptures it is clear that the expression of the word feet suggest subduing, possessing authority over something or someone or the mere exercising of power and control.

With this understanding in mind, I began to analytically scrutinize Psalms 36:11, which says, “Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me”.

Just prior to our scrutiny of this passage let us come to an understanding of the word pride, in an effort to gain an expanded sense of the entirety of this scripture. Pride is defined as: a high or inordinate opinion of one's own dignity, importance, merit, or superiority, whether as cherished in the mind or as displayed in conduct, etc.

So, in this scripture David the author seems to be asking God not to let the power of pride to control or subdue him. In simple terms the foot of pride is actually the power of self! Even though rarely admitted pride has incorporated in itself a power to not only possess an individual, but make him/her believe that they are above others, they’re subject to no one and everyone else must bow to them.

I am of the view that when the spirit of pride enters someone, their entire way of thinking changes for the worst. In that their thoughts are mainly about self and become superior to the thoughts, feelings, opinions and ideas of others.

The foot of pride automatically makes one a controller and an oppressor. Reason being, their ideas, thoughts opinions and feelings are the only one that matters and should be acted upon. So the best way to execute this must require the ability to gain absolute power, and oppress the opinions, thoughts, feelings and ideas of others. The bible tells us that pride is accompanied with shame, according to proverbs. 11:2. this is so because no one person knows everything, therefore error now becomes the inevitable for the one that is under the power of pride. Surprisingly, whenever the spot light is removed from this person, they become child like in their behavior and do everything in their power to direct all attention back to them. Their favorite tools to achieve this objective are: manipulation, intimidation and ultimately domination.

The above three tools when wrapped up into one produces the term witchcraft, witchcraft in its simplest understanding is the ability to make others do what you want them to do via manipulation, intimidation and domination. This principle is applicable in the natural and spiritual sense, and is most successful for those that operate under the influence of the power of pride. Unfortunately these folks become very dangerous because they will stop at absolutely nothing to win or achieve. Their sense of shame and the views of others have no basis; therefore what is clearly foolish to the world makes complete sense to them again, because it’s all about winning for them.

Only by pride comes contention, Proverbs 13:10. I was surprise when I discovered this scripture, because it’s suggesting that the root cause of all contention is pride. So, the obvious solution would be to remove the foot or power of pride and contention will cease. Folks that possess this spirit are literally bound with spiritual chains, Psalms 73:6 which imply that they are physically free. However, mentally imprisoned by their selfish high minded ideas and opinions, which incidentally leaves no room for the thoughts and ideas of others.

King Solomon said, “In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride and this same pride will make the path clear for their destruction” Proverbs 14:3, 16:18. Those that refuse to resist or do away with the power or the foot of pride has simultaneously unknowingly agreed to a life filled with unfavorable and disgraceful events. What’s even worst is they’re securing a generational curse for their future generations. Our bible tells us that every seed produces after its kind. Further, no good tree can bring forth bad fruit and no bad tree can bring forth good fruit. Folks that radiate this type of prideful behavior most likely inherited it from their family lineage. Or has allowed some past hurt in their life that was never forgiven to in due course form a rot of bitterness and eventually conceive pride.

The work place has always been a nest for the foot of pride to run its course. Many employees and co-workers have been victims of this stubborn evil. However what I have also discovered aside from pride being the core of contention on the job and else where it is also the subliminal instigator of jealousy. Jealousy always arises when one feels that they should have the best or be the best than those around them. When this sense of inferiority begins to surface in the pride filled person, intense jealousy is the next move by them by means of victimization, condescending words, the spreading of rumors etc. all in an effort to devalue the person they’re jealous of.

I have witness folks by way of pride, left their jobs, spouses, family etc. only to be brought to shame and disgrace in the end. Again, King Solomon said, “A man’s pride shall bring him low”, but honor shall uphold the humble in spirit. We are also told by the bible that God resist the proud. The word resists means to oppose, withstand or strive against. I think it’s safe to say God wants no communication with the proud, because just like Satan, he will eventually reject God’s plan and want to implement his own.

My dear readers, I beg you to re-evaluate yourself and ask God to assist you in ascertaining if the foot of pride has come upon you. This is vitally important because you could possibly be behaving in a way that may seem wise to you but unwise to others. Pride is a deceiving conniving spirit, that makes one believes that they are always right, causes you to behave unseemly, and consistently reject proven sound advice. These are all the perfect ingredients for failure, with a topping of shame and disgrace.

Many today only wish they had dealt with this pride issue prior to their demise, and I am sure there are some right now that are reading this article that have experience the demands that the foot of pride has place upon them, only to reap a harvest that was far below their expectations.

In this same psalm 36, the 9th verse made reference to something that I though was quite remarkable. It says, “For with thee (God) is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see more light.

It is my prayer that you immerse yourself in the fountain of life which is the word of God, and in his light which is life (John 1:4) you will receive and achieve a greater understanding of the life he has purposed for you.

Heavenly father, thank you for being the light of the world. This day I stand in the authority given to me by you to subdue the foot of pride in every reader of this article. I command the spirit of pride to leave your people and to be instantly replaced with the spirit of humility. Thank you father, because according to faith I am convinced that every spiritual chain that has held them bound has been broken in the mighty and matchless name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
