Nothing supernatural happens outside of the presence of God. The presence of Jesus Christ transforms everything. In His presence we will find: Illumination, Revelation, Protection, Prosperity, Purity, Power, Provisions, Peace, Life, Wisdom, Victory, Abundance, Joy, Honor & Glory and the fullness of the good news of Jesus Christ.
Every challenge of the enemy is designed to keep us out of God’s presence. Since the fall of man in the garden of Eden, it has become natural for us to avoid His presence. We have occassionally tried to find His presence during the death of a loved one or during some other trying moment. Many Christians have practiced His presence irregularly, at best.
We must be reminded that Christ died on the cross for our spirtual deliverance and for the restoration of our birthright as children of God. But He also died that He might reinstate our priviledge of being able to come into the presence of God. We must practice His presence if we are to become truly successful in accomplishing the purpose of our existence.
The supernatural, visibly seen, power of God is only released in His presence. That is why we must practice His presence. We must learn how through the word of God, praise and prayer, to practice being in the presence of God. We must be quick to allow nothing to keep us from getting into His presence. We must fight to not allow the pressures and problems of this life, our addictions, our complaining, and not even our fear, to prevent us from practicing the presence of Jesus Christ. Nothing, should keep us from the presence of the Lord. For when we are in His presence the impossible immediately becomes possible.
This is the purpose of Tony Collins Ministries. We desire to teach each individual about the power and ease of accessibility to the supernatural life changing presence of the one true living God - Jesus Christ. We desire to teach all how to fight and over come spiritual darkness and live the life of abundance that Christ came that we might live.
WE'VE BEEN LIED TO!
We have been told that material possessions are a measure of real success. This lie is responsible for our current economic crisis, which was set off by the decline in the housing market. Even when we have the trappings of success that are supposed to meet our needs and desires, many of us still find ourselves completely unfulfilled.
We have also been told that self gratification is more important than self discipline. Have you ever heard of Tiger Woods? I don't have time in this brief preview to discuss all of the major problems that we have encountered and are still dealing with as a result of this lie. Surely, our concerns about the environment and our divorce rate are both issues that have been birthed directly from our wholesale acceptance of this falsehood.
And these are just two of the many lies that we have been told and that we have used as a standard by which we live our lives.
If the current world system of power acquisition, control and success is working so well, then why are so many "successful" people leading defeated lives? Why do so many people who have access to incredible resources, still find themselves unable to restrain themselves and make disciplined positive choices that not only benefit them, but also those that they love. The truth is that our present world system of power acquisition, success and control is flawed, it does not completely fulfill.
The truth is that you don’t have to live a depressed, anxious or stressed out life. The truth is that you can have real power, real success, real control over every situation that life presents, but it requires a change in your thought process. How you think will determine how you behave and how you behave will determine your destiny. We must not just understand the truth from the point of intellectual attainment, but we must move beyond that level of understanding to the point of action, to the point of change.
