    God is not limited concerning the methods or vessels He can use to proclaim the message of The Kingdom. He used a donkey in (Numbers 22:21-39) to speak to Balaam concerning his disobedience and reckless lifestyle. Jesus choosing the 12 apostles from ordinary lay-people gave us all the opportunity to see ourselves as worthy to be used by God; as a matter of fact, choosing the twelve apostles was not just Jesus’ human idea or business plan, but God’s own wisdom. We see in the Bible that God used drunks, old people, daydreamers, liars, swindlers, unattractive people, spoiled people, stutterers, scared people, whores, prostitutes, novices, murderers, broke people, lazy people, divorcees, and even God-haters to eventually bring his name glory; and truth be told, I'm pretty sure you can find yourself somewhere in the midst. Let's again look at scripture: "Take a good look, friends, at who you were when you got called into this life. I don't see many of "the brightest and the best" among you, not many influential, not many from high-society families. Isn't it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women that the culture overlooks and exploits and abuses, chose these "nobodies" to expose the hollow pretensions of the "somebodies"? That makes it quite clear that none of you can get by with blowing your own horn before God. Everything that we have--right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start--comes from God by way of Jesus Christ. That's why we have the saying, "If you're going to blow a horn, blow a trumpet for God."" ~ (1 Corinthians 1:26-29) THE MESSAGE BIBLE Playa!!!!!!! In (John 11:11-44) God even used a DEAD MAN (Lazarus) to represent His glory; and in doing so, Jesus speaks one of the most powerful messages ever: "Whoever believes in me, Jesus Christ, receives spiritual life that even physical death can never take away." God even states in (Luke 19:40) that He can use some lifeless ROCKS to cry out concerning His mighty works and glory! GOD IS NOT LIMITED!!!!! In this season, He's showing His majesty, glory, brilliance, immutableness, and power through yet another entity: SPOKEN WORD POETRY!!!!! ***.....and I'm glad He's not doing it without me...*** God has once again used his omniscience to assemble a warrior-band of apostles that are designed specifically to enter the wildernesses and jungles of sin and rescue His saints that are held captive by today's carnal influences with the power, boldness, know-how, and fierceness that can only be accomplished by TRUE SPIRITUAL BEASTS!!!!!!!!!! We dare not venture into these recovery missions without accumulating our weaponry from the anointed storehouses of fasting and prayer! We are ordained directly from the throne of God, by God Himself, using the directives of His Holy Spirit. In the words of our co-heir Jesus the Christ, we decree "I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak." (John 12:49) NKJV Without further ado, we present to you: SPOKEN THROUGH THE SPIRIT: THE SPIRITUAL BEASTS TOUR ~ OVERTAKING #1
