A SPLASH OF WATER IN YOUR FACE #922/ EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

A SPLASH OF WATER IN YOUR FACE #922/ EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

September 12, 2022

A SPLASH OF COLD WATER IN YOUR FACE

Let me ask you a question. What do you see when you think of someone you know or love? Do you visualize an elbow, a foot, or perhaps the back of their head? No, of course not.
You see their face, don't you? We know people by their faces because that is where the expression of their spirit is released. We know them by their face because the substance of their DNA and their family genes come through their face.
You observe their face to see their response to your communication when you're talking to someone. A smile or a frown will tell you which way the conversation is going. 
A relationship with any hope of going anywhere always starts with a face-to-face encounter. The signs of love between a man and a woman first appear on the face, and the soft whispers of love and the first kiss come from the face.
I believe this is why we're invited to have a face-to-face relationship with our father, God. Many Christians know their God from a distance and hear about him through other people's reports. But they've never had a face-to-face encounter with the person they claim to love.
It's somewhat like a love affair over the Internet or a male order bride where all you saw was a picture. True love and relationship are always face-to-face.
So it's time for you all to have a cold splash of water on your face.
The nerves that run through the surface of your face will affect every part of your body, including your heart. Suddenly you're Wide awake, your brain starts functioning again, and you're ready for the day.
So it is in the spirit when God splashes cold water in our face, and we wake up to the reality that we need his face in ours.
How great is that?

SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE OF VICTORY #921/ EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE OF VICTORY #921/ EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE OF VICTORY

The story of Legion in the new testament is a classic example of deliverance when Jesus shows up at the shore of someone's troubled life. There are so many beautiful keys in this story of redemption that we can glean for our ministries and lives.
If I were to rate those essential keys, I would have to choose the first words that Jesus said about their trip. Remember that before Jesus went on one of his adventures, he had already listened to the Father's instructions for the day. 
On this particular day, they were going to meet a storm so severe that the disciples feared for their lives. So Jesus made a statement that became the linchpin of the day. 
He said to his disciples," Let us go over to the other side."
Based on that confession, victory was snatched out of the jaws of defeat so that when the storm came, it was used as an example to the disciples that faith would dominate the day.
What Jesus said to his disciples that day was this; "get in the boat, boys. I'll see you on the other side of victory.
I challenge you today to do the two things Jesus did every day before he fulfilled the Father's will.
First of all, he spent time with the Father so that he would understand the direction that the Father wanted him to go for the day.
Secondly, he took that word from the Father and spoke it into the atmosphere he would be in that day. His confession made a pathway for him to walk on.
When we say the same things the Father is saying about our journey, we have a path to walk in that will take us to our target.
Confessing your soul's desires instead of finding the Father's desires will confuse and frustrate you and eventually quit.
Listen to the heart of the Father, then boldly confess his desires for you.

DECONSTRUCTING THE GOD YOU KNOW #58/ THE SUNDAY NIGHT BLESSING WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

DECONSTRUCTING THE GOD YOU KNOW #58/ THE SUNDAY NIGHT BLESSING WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

September 11, 2022

DECONSTRUCTING THE GOD YOU KNOW FOR THE GOD YOU WILL MEET

The dead sea in the middle east is famous for one thing; it's dead. It is so highly salty that no living creature can exist in its waters. The reason it's dead is also very simple. The dead sea never gives anything away that it receives. In other words, there are no rivers flowing out to supply water for different parts of the region.
Americans are known for many things; one is collecting special momentos such as antiques from the past and broken and disrepair items they may use someday.
That particular habit of collecting has produced a category of people called hoarders. Hoarders are those who collect anything for no reason; they like to collect stuff. The tragedy of this particular group of people is that they finally collect so much that they have no room to live in their own house. Many of them live in tiny corners while the rest of the house is filled with junk.
However, if you ask them about it, they will all tell you these are my treasures.
And so it goes with the community of people called Christians; we are also collectors of stuff. The things we collect our ideas, church theology, grandmothers customs, and "this is the way we've always done it."
So just like the dead sea and the hoarder that lives down the street, the Christian who collects spiritual stuff ends up living in a small corner of their spiritual house because there's no room for anything else.
A healthy Christian has a stream flowing out of them, making room for new things to come in. That river or stream flowing out contains many things, such as giving others their time, finances, and love.
However, there are other things that need to flow out that are just as important.
Those things are discarded ideas, out-of-date theology, and grandmother's beliefs about God that came from erroneous teaching. 
It's impossible to collect spiritual information from all the sources around us without collecting some dead works, which the Bible calls "hay wood and stubble."
If you're ever going to have room to receive new revelation, some of what you have learned in the past must be deconstructed or torn down so that God can rebuild a fresh understanding of who he is to you and the world around you.
The children of Israel had to collect fresh Mana every day, and if they tried to hoard it for the next day, it became full of worms. I wonder how much of our old dusty theology is full of worms today.
Take time to unload some of the debris, go into the father's secret chamber, and let him refresh you and refill you with his divine knowledge and understanding.
I guarantee you will meet a loving father beyond your wildest dreams.

IF YOU LAUNCH THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL STEER THE SHIP #920 EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

IF YOU LAUNCH THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL STEER THE SHIP #920 EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

September 8, 2022

IF YOU LAUNCH, THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL STEER THE SHIP
Inertia is a strange word. According to my high school science, teacher inertia simply means something at rest. In other words, we are not moving or going anywhere. How often do we feel that way on this journey called life? When we are 10, we want to be 16. And it seems like we will never get there; it's like being stuck in a time warp. 
When we're single, we wonder if we'll ever be married. And every time we go to someone else's wedding, it just magnifies the anxiety we're walking in.
Or maybe you feel trapped in a job that has no forward motion. Oh God, you pray, will you ever get me out of this mess I'm in?
The scriptures give us several examples of how to break the power of inertia in our lives. Jesus was especially clear when he ministered to several individuals and commanded them to do something about their condition.
Christ commanded the man with the withered hand to stand up. There was nothing wrong with his legs, but he still sat there focused on his problem. When he did what he could do, then he could do what he couldn't do.
How about the prominent general that came to the prophet in the Old Testament and wanted to be healed from leprosy? The prophet gave him something to do to break him out of the place he was in so we could move forward into healing.
Go wash in the Jordan river, he said.
After much complaining, he finally did that, and when he did, he moved out of leprosy into healing.
I love the story of the prodigal son sitting in the pigpen doing nothing but lusting after the food the pigs were eating. Now that's super inertia.
Taking a permanent rest in a pig pen is not something very smart.
Something seemed to click down deep inside, and he began to speak words of freedom that caused him to be moved out of his pigpen.
"I will rise, and I will go, and I will say to my father."
Those simple words changed his life and launched him on a journey toward Victory.
Dear friends, there's something you can do to break the inertia, that place you seem to be stuck in. And when you do, God will take over the steering wheel and guide you to Victory.

OH FOR THE FAITH OF A COOK #919/  EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

OH FOR THE FAITH OF A COOK #919/ EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

September 7, 2022

OH, FOR THE FAITH OF A COOK
Some time ago, I was meditating upon my life as it has unfolded over the years. As I did, I began to realize the importance of cooks in my life because my life would have been a lot different without them.
Then I began to collect the names and faces of the most important cooks that had helped this old boy stay alive so long. Of course, I started with the main cook in my young life, my mother. 
We had a very unconventional lifestyle as a traveling Pentecostal preacher family. Because of that, mother learned how to produce meals for her family on all sorts of cookstoves and campfires. I still remember the warm kitchen in Yakima because of the wood cookstove where there was always a coffee pot for dad and a pot of soup for the rest of us.
It seems I spent a fair amount of my young life going somewhere in an automobile. Those days we carried our food in a small cooler and camped out at night along the road somewhere. And when it was lunchtime, almost magically, a sandwich would be passed over from the front seat where mom was putting lunch together as we traveled along.
I never thought much about where the food came from, but just as long as mother was around, I knew we would have something to eat. 
However, the most essential cook in my life has been my wife, Arlis, who has kept me alive for 54 years. She never met a soup she couldn't change. Of course, I should get some credit for her skills because I have been the test case for most of her cooking in the early days. But I never complained because I was in love. And as the scripture says, love covers a multitude of burnt food.
Currently, she's on a quest to discover the best banana bread ever. And her grandkids are cheering her on as she does. I watched her baking yesterday, and she showed me the record of all the banana bread she baked this year. She had noted all the ingredients and the changes she made to the flavor of each one.
As I listened to her explain her next strategy, I was hit with this thought; oh, that we might have the faith of a cook.
If you and I applied the scriptures with the same faith that a cook has when they put a cup of sugar or flour into the mix, knowing it will change something for the better. The great cooks in our life have total confidence in their ingredients, and when they apply them, the results will be the same every time.
Now that's the kind of faith I can follow.

TALKING WITH GOD IMPROVES EYESIGHT #918/ EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

TALKING WITH GOD IMPROVES EYESIGHT #918/ EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

September 6, 2022

TALKING TO THE LORD IMPROVES EYESIGHT
The subject is enormous and all-encompassing, but the statement is short and to the point.
When you talk to God, your eyesight is improved. It has been proven over and over in the Scriptures that when one of our biblical heroes spent time communicating with the God of heaven, they could then see through their problem to Victory.
Take Samuel, for instance. Just a young boy was living in the courtyards of the temple grounds. In the night, while on his bed, he heard his name called Samuel Samuel.
He arose quickly from his bed, went to Eli, the priest, and asked him if he had called him.
After repeated attempts to find out who was speaking, Eli gave him spiritual direction so that he could follow God'sGod's instructions. Eli got a word from the Lord and told it to Samuel.
If the Lord calls again, this is how you will answer. "speak lord for your servant hearth."
After speaking with Lord Samuel then had a clear vision of what God had in mind for the future of Israel. Not only was his understanding increased, but now he could see far into the future.
How about Peter; after a time of ministering to the people who had gathered, he took time to rest up before he ate lunch. Then God gave him a vision of a sheet being let down full of animals. 
Remember that Peter could not see the church's future like he was ready to after talking to the Lord.
God said to Peter, "kill and eat."
Peter said to God, "not me, Lord. I'm a good Jew; we don't eat that."
When Peter and Gold were through talking together, Peter could see down the road. Significant changes were coming to the world and the body of Christ. The Gentiles had been included in the covenant, and Peter didn't see it until he had his conversation with God.
So how about you today? How is your eyesight doing?
Do you think an increase could improve it in your conversations with the father?
I do.
So remember what the Scriptures tell us, "the fervent prayers of a righteous person avail of much."

THE ROOT AND THE BRANCH IS LOVE #917/ EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

THE ROOT AND THE BRANCH IS LOVE #917/ EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

September 5, 2022

THE ROOT AND THE BRANCH IS LOVE
Love is your invisible inner source, just like the root system of a tree and the foundation of a building. Eph 3:17 m/b
Love is your reservoir of super human strength, which causes you to see everyone equally sanctified in the context of the limitless intent of love's breadth and length and the extremities of its dimensions in depth and height. Eph 3:18 m/b
I desire for you to become intimately acquainted with the love of Christ on the deepest possible level, far beyond the reach of a mere academic intellectual grasp. Within this equation, God finds the ultimate expression of himself in you. Eph 3:19 m/b
I am convinced that the next revolution in our theology, as well as the experience that the church will embrace, is that of love. We have preached about love, written books about love, and told people that we love one another. Yet the evidence is not there. 
Jesus said that the evidence of us loving one another would be that the world knew we were one because of our love. Yet, the church is still divided across the board by doctoral disputes, class divisions, and ethnic misunderstandings.
The church's roots, the body of Christ, are founded in love because God is love. It would seem that the revelation of God's love is still an intellectual experience for too many. So for us to move into the purposes of God as a people. The message of love must go from our heads to our hearts, and the Holy Ghost is the only one that can do that.
As much as I want to love you in my emotions, I cannot love you without God's love flowing through me. 
Beloved, let us love one another for love is of God; everyone that loves is born of God and knows God. 1 John 4:7

DOORS GOD WILL USE TO REACH YOU #57/ THE SUNDAY NIGHT BLESSING WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

DOORS GOD WILL USE TO REACH YOU #57/ THE SUNDAY NIGHT BLESSING WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

September 4, 2022

DOORS GOD WILL USE TO REACH YOU
For years I have been intrigued with the mechanics of heaven. If there's anything that I have learned from a young age is that God has a system that can be examined and tapped into. 
The evidence is all around us; as Paul stated, even nature declares his glory. Centuries ago, a man by the name of Francis Bacon, who was a believer in the creator of the universe, became the father of science. He discovered in his investigation of nature around him that it is consistent and has a dependable system.
All of our science then is based upon a dependable God who built a reliable universe that we can study to find its mechanics. Actual science is not the investigator's opinion but the discovery of the systematic function of what they study.
And so it is with you and God.
Our father has built within the structure of his world doorways to come into your life so that he may speak directly to you. Because each of us is created as individuals, as they say, one size doesn't fit all. So the father has a lot of options that he uses to reach us.
The scriptures tell us, "as the heavens are above the earth, so God's ways are above our ways."
Just look at the multiple ways God has reached into the lives of those in the Bible.
With Joseph, it was through dreams, and they called him a dreamer.
With Peter, it was a vision as he was in a trance. God spoke to him about the Gentiles coming into the kingdom of God.
Then with the apostle Paul, a bright light stopped him in his tracks as he was determined to destroy the church. Jesus arrested him with a personal visit.
And with Mary, the mother of Jesus, it was an angel that spoke to her about carrying in her womb the Christ child.
Balaam, known to be a false prophet in the old testament, had a donkey talk to him and give him direction.
Moses had a burning bush speak to him that broke him out of the rut he was in so he could fulfill his destiny. Later on, in life, it was thunder and lightning that spoke to him.
So you see, there are many ways that God has that he can speak into your life and change your circumstances and bring your miracle.
So pay attention; he has an entrance into your life that will be perfect for you.

REQUIREMENT FOR SPIRITUAL TRAVEL #915/ EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

REQUIREMENT FOR SPIRITUAL TRAVEL #915/ EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

September 1, 2022

REQUIREMENT FOR SPIRITUAL TRAVEL
Ready set go! And we're off to the races, the spiritual races, that is. It seems that our society is obsessed with competition and aggressively getting ahead of the other guy. If you don't believe that, drive a little while on the American highways and see how many people want to get ahead of you.
So it should be no surprise that we drag that dead carcass of competition into our spiritual journey and expect it to produce good fruit.
Like the old boy said, "God, I want patience, and I want it right now."
However, if we closely inspect the instruction manual, we will immediately notice that God has some requirements for spiritual travel. By that, I mean maturing in our walk with God and developing a relationship with him that fulfills his plans for us. 
The Scriptures tell us in proverbs 4:7 that the main thing we must have on this progressive journey into the world of the spirit is wisdom, and with that, her sister, understanding.
But here's the key to that scripture we must know that it is not our wisdom that we accumulate by experience or education. Neither is our understanding that it's talking about that brings us into that place of spiritual maturity.
The wisdom and understanding that the scriptures refer to here are spirits that God created that have been released to the believer for their maturing and success.
In the book of proverbs 4:3, we are instructed that we should not lean or depend on our understanding, but we are to trust him with all that makes us who we are; our heart.
We tend to collect things along the way called weights, and they easily distract and slow us down. Those things make up what we understand in life and our spiritual journey, and we are challenged not to rely on that. 
So you ask how do we receive the spirit of wisdom and the spirit of understanding. 
Here it is in condensed form.
Love the Lord thy God with all my heart, soul, and mind, and he will give you.
Notice who the giver is.
My only requirement is to be the receiver.

WHEN THE WHISTLE BLOWS #914/ EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

WHEN THE WHISTLE BLOWS #914/ EMBRACING THE FATHERS HEART WITH DR GEORGE WATKINS

August 31, 2022

WHEN THE WHISTLE BLOWS
A few days ago, I had lunch with two pastor friends at the mill city Café in Longview, Washington. After lunch, I decided to stroll down Main Street and take in the sights. I have been in and out of Longview most of my life, with some connection to ministry and churches in town.
My earliest memories of this small northwestern town were when dad and mother preached in one of the pioneer churches in town. Later, I came as a single evangelist and returned later as a married one. I held my most protracted revival meeting in this town for six weeks of powerful encounters with God.
However, even though I had all this history, I had never walked down Main Street and taken in the town's atmosphere. It wasn't long before I came upon an iconic past memorial.
As I began to read the history of this town, I noticed I was standing in front of an enormous steam whistle. As the story unfolded, I found that this steam whistle was on top of the largest sawmill in the nation in the 1930s. I also discovered that a man named R A Long had financed and built the only entire city in the 20th century in the United States, and they called it Longview.
I was impressed; then I read about the whistle I was looking at.
This whistle was powered by steam and was so loud it could be heard for 25 miles.
The sound of this monster whistle signaled when each shift of the largest saw Mill in the nation would change. And when it did, everyone within a range of 25 miles knew it.
Standing in front of that iconic whistle, I suddenly felt small compared to the history whirling around me. I was standing in the middle of the town; most people didn't know it was there, yet it changed the course of history for this entire region and generations of families that worked in its great sawmill.
And in the middle of it all was this larger-than-life brass steam whistle that controlled at all.
As I stood there, I was reminded of the Holy Spirit's witness in each of us. God has a whistle that goes off at various times in our daily life, telling us it's time for a shift change.
Now here's a secret most people don't understand about that whistle; when it goes off, everybody around us knows it. 
When it's time for a change, it affects everyone around us.
Stay sensitive, my friends; God is blowing his whistle inside your spirits.
