I am writing this short blog while siting in the airport in Bangkok. First, let me thank everyone for praying for us while in Bangkok. Our time in Sadudee/Praise Church was awesome, as was our team that we brought from our church. So many manifestations of life, , that we have seen and experienced during this three day conference. I want to share some of the greater truths that I discovered while ministering during these three days.
The cornerstone of Resurrection Life is !
Forgiveness, or letting go, as I like to call it is not a moral issue. It’s a control issue. Therefore, until we can release all that is past, no longer insisting for completion or anything, just commuting it into the hands of our Father, we are bound to whatever death is holding us.

Jesus comes to the place where death has reigned, to bring His resurrection life to bear. Therefore, it is extremely personal.

There are many more discoveries that happened. Such power, literal awakening happened during our ministry times, as well as through the teaching. I will share more this Wednesday night and in further blogs. Take a moment to ponder these truths, asking the Holy Spirit to help locate you.
