Rooted In Identity — Jeremy Cairs

You’re not a prophet because of what you do. You are a prophet because it’s who God says you are. It’s identity first and function later.

Elitism & Humility — Jeremy Caris

Elitism has no place in the Church, except to be laid down at the altar. It must collapse every time it rises, and that collapse often comes in the form of a slow decline into spiritual dryness. It will slowly damper the voice of the Lord within until you hear less of Him and more…(Read More)

Individuality in the church is an important thing! In the Kingdom, individuality is a key to godly unity. Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. 28 And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, helping, administrating, and various kinds…(Read More)

You be you. I’ll be me… That’s the way I’ve been hearing it in my spirit for months now. Here’s one way the Bible says it: “Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him. This is my rule…(Read More)

Now there were in the church at Antioch prophets and teachers, Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen a lifelong friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I…(Read More)

Being a prophet doesn’t mean you’re always in the right or accurate… but you may tend to think you are. Yeah I just went there… but that’s the truth. I know that because I always think I’m right, and experience has taught me that I often am… but not always. And…(Read More)

“So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all that he himself is doing. And greater…(Read More)
