Undoubtedly you have heard the phrase " Jesus was100% God and 100% man" spoken in an effort to describe the mystery of the eternal God coming to earth as a human to redeem us. Truly He came from heaven and although he was born of a woman, He was sired by the Holy Spirit. So there was something truly divine and uncommon about Him.

It is so good to be able to pass on to you what the Lord pours into me. It says in the word that we are to pour out "living water."

A word of the Lord a few years ago went out from our leadereship that said "My people will learn to trust me because they have to." I think we can all say that is very true if we look back on the last few years. Sunday, our pastor said that God told him that "He needed His people to take their place, and America needed His people to take their place". Notice that the word was to God's people not just anyone or to the world. As I was praying a few nights ago, I asked God what was on His heart.
