We need a clear revelation that we cannot do anything without Christ !  We need to understand that all we have and posses EG, the gifts of the Holy Sprit, which are just that.  'The gifts of the Holy Spirit."    They are not ours, and they were not given to those who have them, to make them look great.  They were given to use in such a way that God get all the glory not some man.
Our very walk alone, is a walk of dying daily.  Walking in the Spirit, does not mean just dishing out revelation, and prophecy, and using the gifts or speaking in tongues.  It means obedience to the Word of God.  It means a life that is surrendered and give fully in voluntary submission to the leading and workings and dealings of the Holy Spirit, moment by moment.  It means Glorifying God in ALL we say and do, and not serving out of habit, form, tradition, or "this is just the way we always have done it."
What we are, will reflect what we do, and this will reflect either Holy Ghost results and the true move of God, or the efforts of the flesh, and a people void of the true anointing of God, and trying to walk as a law unto themselves, and calling obedience, 'works',  and trying to help God out.  This leaves in its wake, a tremendously disappointed people in the gathering/s where this kind of stubbornness to completely die to the ways of the flesh take place.
Most messages are nothing more than self help doctrines.   "How to be a better you."   How to know who YOU are in Christ."   "How to overcome divorce, anxiety.  How to , how to, how to.     What about finding out who Jesus is in us ?   What about finding out what it means that the kingdom of God is within us ?   What about the discovery that the same power that raised Christ Jesus from the dead "lives in us.' ?    What about how to overcome the world the flesh and the devil ?    What about 'reckon yourselves dead to sin and alive with Christ'.   How about  " Shall we go on sinning that grace might increase ? By no means !   We died to sin, how can we live in it any longer" ?    (rom 6: 1-2).
Beloved.  I pray that the message will have a Holy Ghost impact in your life.   Life changing.   I pray it will bring the anointing of the Holy Ghost in such a way as to encourage you, edify you, help you, heal you, convict you, or even rebuke you if need be.  But I do pray it will be used by the Lord in whatever way needed "in your life and circumstance," to do a work in your heart as you allow it to, and submit to the truth of the Word of God....
Be careful how you hear....  Jesus said.  So I encourage you to pick up your bible and check out what is being said. Not just in this message, but in everything you hear, no matter the source.  I do pray this word will be a tremendous blessing to you, and that the peace of God be in double portion to you with His wonderful mercy and grace.      ~Pastor Gary R. Kane~


We are certainly in a day, that we need to hear clearly what the Lord's will is for us, and our family, and fellowship. This is for us to be reminded, the Lord is speaking to those who are fully given to Him and Him alone, and we need to listen to what the Spirit of God is saying, in order to be built up by His grace into that man which will not crumble under pressure, and the attacks, and the devices of the world the flesh and the devil, and the coming disasters upon this nation and earth. That we will be a holy remnant of God, built up, and prepared by His Spirit and the truth of His Word, that we not fall in the shaking that has already started, and is yet to come. That we not be moved from our position of faith, nor ever doubt God or His Word to us, but stand firm, and fixed on the foundation of Jesus Christ. There is no other foundation, and if we move off of this foundation, to what degree we shift, or drift, is to the degree we begin to fear, and doubt, and end up ship wrecked. God is returning for a pure bride, without spot or blemish, one that can hear His voice, and follow it, and not listen to, nor follow a strangers voice. A people who do not have more faith in Satan to keep them in bondage to sin, sickness, disease, and spiritual poverty, than they have in God to deliver them !

The flesh, is a strangers voice, whether coming from our own desires, and will, or through what we hear, read, and listen to, from the news paper to 'some' pulpits. We have to have a walk with the Lord dead to self, to "know" His voice, and His perfect will, least Satan, and the flesh begin to derail us, This is still the working of the Jezebel Spirit---- To lead God's people astray.

Let us, open our ears to what the Spirit of God is saying to us in these final minutes, as it were, and be a people of faith, and walking in the power of God, and sent forth as His ambassadors in the earth. I believe with all my heart, This is "the only way," any one can receive from the Lord, what He is saying to us, is to look "past the flesh", but the flesh has to be dead in order to do this. We must be in a surrendered state with the Lord in such a way, that what He has to say to us does not have to "check in" with the flesh first, or other folks, to see if it is OK to receive what He says to us or not ! To obey Him or not ! No we are dead, therefore, we then can receive, and now know the perfect will of God. If you look past the flesh, and fear, you will see and hear, what the Spirit of God is saying to you, and if you belong to Him, your spirit will bear witness with His spirit.

ROMANS 12: 1-3

1. Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.

(this is where we "choose" to die and voluntarily lay down our lives---- Period, on the altar of God's perfect will for us, "which is a place of death"---- coming to the cross, so God can have His perfect will--- And we love righteousness, and walk in it. But there is more).

2. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

We cannot test, or "know" or approve, ( "agree with,") His perfect will for our life, IF we are STILL conformed to even some form or type or pattern of this world. This includes "still being alive to the flesh" ! The pattern of this world is "living in the flesh realm." This does not have to mean we are just walking in some besetting sin we won't give up, that may be true. But it also means, we are not walking in the supernatural realm with God. Walking in what is not seen, not yet manifest, yet we are filled with the absolute eager expectation of "Hope." This is what hope means in the Word, "an eager expectation, that what God has promised He will bring to pass". So, a "transformation" must take place, from unregenerate, to regeneration, or "true salvation," becoming a new creature, and old things, "walking in the flesh" pass away, and all things, "walking by the Holy Spirit in obedience to God," become new. The mind must be "renewed" as well, to think and say, what God says !

Notice it is God's "pleasing and perfect will." Without "faith" we cannot "please" God Hebrews tells us, so this is a crucifixion of self, by choice, and the work carried out by the Holy Spirit, as we surrender to His will and obey, "with joy and gladness, and thanksgiving," not begrudgingly. Romans 8:1 tells us there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, and no longer "walk according to the flesh" but rather by the Spirit of God." Death to self, begets the life of Christ in us. It brings the ability to hear His voice, and know His will, and walk in His anointing, and enter into real fellowship. This, as verse one explains, is our "spiritual act of worship." This is real worship. Not religious form. Remember this. I believe the Word of God is clear, that the lowest most degrading form of   sonship, is to do what we do in our walk with the Lord, out of habit, or form, or tradition. The spirit of this world, has brought most of the church to this place. A place to be without yield, or full surrender to God. Therefore, people cannot walk in the super natural realm, in what is unseen, and walk there by faith, and experience the miraculous, because most people are still unsure or afraid of the miraculous. That is surely for someone else, not me ! That sounds to far fetched ! That was for the people in bible days ! Why, I have claimed and prayed and believed, and nothing happened ! They need that which is tangible, something to see, or someone to motivate them, or something to stir them to passion for Christ, and to walk in the miraculous. There has not yet been developed in them an understanding of the covenant. There is not yet developed in them the faith that believes what it says will come to pass. God did not say the bank shall supply all your needs, he said God will supply all our needs. Philippians 4:19    19.. And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

He did not say, is any among you sick, let him call for the doctor. No, he said call for the elders of the Church to anoint the sick with oil and the prayer of the righteous will make the sick man well. James 5: 13-16

13..Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. 14..Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15..And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. 16..Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.

In Mark 16:17-20

17...And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18..they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well." 19...After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. 20...Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.

Now, listen to me. I did not say God was opposed to banks, or doctors, or medicine, they have their place. What God "is" opposed to, is being # 2, Second place ! We do not see something happening soon enough, so we say, "I guess we will just have to pray ! " People have been programmed to believe the devils lies, and his statistics ! Prayer and real faith have become a last ditch effort.

Again, the mind must be renewed, to think and say, (agree with), what God says. This is covenant. 1John 4: 1-6

1..Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2..This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3..but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

4..You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 5..They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, (here is agreement with the devils lies and his statistics), and the world listens to them. (because they do not trust God) 6..We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood. (or anti-Christ, that which is in opposition to what God says ).

The word above "acknowledges," means to: Speak the same thing as, to be in agreement with, to walk in covenant with. So if I am not saying the same thing as God is saying, and walking in covenant agreement with Him according to the promise's of His Word, my faith is deficient. I have not yet learned to receive and use all God has already provided for me, by faith, to walk in the realm of the unseen, with hope as my anchor. "an eager expectation, that what "God has said," will come to pass.

You see, God looks for a place here on earth where people will "Mirror," or be a reflection of His heart. That is where He will show up ! The mindset of the flesh, and the, "doing this, because this is the way we always have done it", is nothing more than a reflection of religion, and a lifeless form, without the breath of the Holy Spirit, to bring forth the absolute power of God to His people, and to others in the earth, and in our gatherings. Being "transformed", means just that. We are no longer "familiar" with the world, but we walk as aliens and strangers to it. This cost us. It can cost relationships, it can cost doing what is inconvenient to us, it will cost not living any longer to the flesh, and the things which are seen ! Smith Wigglesworth once said, in a humble and modest way, "If God is not moving in a place, then I will cause Him to move." Sounds arrogant you say ! If so, it is because we do not yet understand what God has given to us, and desires from us. What Smith Wigglesworth was saying is this.......

He meant he would use what God has given him by the Holy Spirit, to bring into the atmosphere the presence of God. So If I do not see God moving here, then "bring the testimony of Jesus into the atmosphere". It is a faith injection, a "Faith comes by hearing, and that by the Word of God," distribution if you will, into the atmosphere of the valley of dry bones, that they might live. You see, faith believes for something. The world spirit, merely hopes something good will happen. Faith lays hold of it's inheritance, and wields it as a two edged sword, the world spirit, needs someone to tell them what to do, and how to do it, and until such information comes along, they are powerless, without hope, in despair, and in confusion over so many things. There is NO fire for God, no conversation filled with Christ, with excitement, with the glory of God, and faith. Just a tired, hang in there, and get through attitude that will eventually lead to the deepest dryness, and lack of vision. The opposite of this, is a life filled with the glory of God, and walking in covenant, and saying what God says, and not believing the devil's statistics, that you do this, and you'll catch this disease, you get this sickness, and you'll have to live on this medication, you need money, run to the bank, your mentally exhausted, you need a pill, or a doctor, and how about this one... Keep your walk with God "personal" it is a personal thing, between you and the Lord, no need to be talking about your experiences, or speaking of such things in the market place, or at work, God forbid !    No, it is god forbid !    These are the lies of Satan, and not what God is saying.

3. For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.

In other words, die to pride, and self interest, and religious form. Use the faith God has given you to walk in the supernatural realm with God, always pouring yourself put as a drink offering, allowing death to work in you, that life will work in others....

Again, the admonishment to "die." Thinking and living humbly before the Lord, and not allowing ourselves to cross boundaries beyond what has been thus far given to us, and so become filled with pride.

Allow the Spirit of God to have His way. Let us lay down voluntarily on the altar of God's perfect will for us, taking up our cross daily, and following Him. Where was He going with that cross? To die ! This will perpetually bring the fullness of Christ into our spirit, and cause us to have "ears that can hear." Amen!
