We live this life in steps; a shifting of our weight to engage/become fully involved/to participate in being what God has called us to “be” …while putting one foot in front of the other. [Pastor]
And, when all has been said and done, we will be witnesses of what The Lord has accomplished IN us; “for it is God which worketh IN you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.” In essence, The Lord is 180-degree-ing us (or, turning us around) out of our lost-ness into a found-ness. [Pastor; Philippians 2:13]
If you have been “hearing,” and “hearing,” and receiving the engrafted Word of The Lord; at the end of the day, He will have walked you into His purpose. [Romans 10:17; Pastor]
But we believe that through the grace of The Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved. [Acts 15:11]
THERE’S A BREAKING, IN MY FAVOR
THERE’S A SHIFTING, IN MY DIRECTION
THERE’S A BREAKING, IN MY FAVOR
AS I PRAISE!

What does “it” (“Walking into Purpose”) mean? and, How so does “it” (“Walking into Purpose”) become (or, come to pass)? [Pastor]
Not forgetting that “He calleth those things that be not as though they were;” for their becoming to be what “it” (“Walking into Purpose) IS. Selah. [Romans 4:17; Pastor]
Walking into Purpose requires a mental/paradigm shift; weighted/steps, from independence (the Lie) to dependence (The Truth); which is accomplished in a people, after they have been redeemed. [Pastor]
This Purpose is “learned” by the way of the wilderness; through the obedience of faith; in the presence of God and the great dragon (aka, the deceiver); by the “new man,” in a vile body of death; by the things which he must suffer. [Hebrews 5:8; Revelation 12:4(b), 9(a); Pastor]
I’M A NEW CREATION, I’M A BRAND NEW MAN;
OLD THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY, I’VE BEEN BORN AGAIN; MORE THAN A CONQUERER, THAT’S WHO I AM;
I’M A NEW CREATION, I’M A BRAND NEW MAN. [David Ingles]

My GTFI Family,
Our Father has brought us through another year to celebrate HIS GOODNESS TOWARDS US! Oh, how HE has revealed Himself to us, one by one, with great demonstration and manifestation. And what manner of love our Father has given to us in real proof! What a glorious week we shall have as we assemble to bless our LORD in worship!
So, let us all present ourselves to Him at the appointed times to offer our voices of praise, the clapping of our hands, the lifting of hands, kneeling before HIM in thanksgiving, and bearing up one another with encouragement to walk in HIS “newness”.
CELEBRATION: October 21-28, 2018.
Hallelujah to our LORD and FATHER!
Your sister in Christ Jesus,
Jenelsie, Pastor’s Wife

My dear GTFI family,
There is one thing that I am fully persuaded about: only the Word of His power can cause-us to walk in our “purpose in life” spoken by God. No, we are not able to do it by our own power and might (works) but by the supernatural working of the Holy Ghost in or upon us. Yielding or submitting and participating with our “AMEN” is the work/faith that we do. The Lord Jesus has satisfied our Father for man’s walk as a victorious son/daughter unto HIM in the earth, so we “eat, receive, live by, live out from” the finished work of the first begotten Son, Jesus, our Lord. What a Savior we have! We don’t have to “try” to figure out how to walk; our saving grace is our Lord!
When we leave from the gathering of the saints of the Lord this day, know that HE has given us His strength and power to walk and to possess the land!! Hallelujah!!
Love in Christ Jesus,
Your sister, Jenelsie
