IT'S YOUR CHOICE
In Deuteronomy chapters 11 and 30, God told Israel that He had set before them a blessing and a curse and told them that the outcome would be determined by their choices. The word blessing means to be happy, well, prosperous, favored, and safe. The word curse means the opposite. Did you know that every day you make choices to be: happy or unhappy, well or sick, rich or poor, accepted or rejected, or safe or in danger?
Making choices is one of the most powerful forces that you possess. Join Dr. Vance as he teaches you how you can choose to be blessed and not cursed. It's Your Choice!

From the Desk of Kelli Vance...
As I was studying and praying about what to share with you this month, God took me to Mark 14:25. I have ministered all around this Scripture and never had it stand out to me like it did today. I’ve ministered on the woman who poured the costly perfume on Jesus, preparing Him for His burial; Jesus serving the disciples by washing their feet and how we are to serve others; the communion and how it’s relevant to our lives today; prayer and how it avails much; all the disciples leaving Jesus but Him recognizing He wasn’t alone because the Father was with Him; the curse that Jesus took on in that midnight hour heading to the Garden of Gethsemane.
I meant it when I said I’ve ministered all around it, but today Jesus opened my eyes to it and said, “That’s it! That’s what I want you to share.” Taken from Mark 14:25, Jesus said “Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.” And there it was, like a lightbulb coming on…
The only way to bear the fruit of the Spirit and the fruit of the Kingdom is to remain, to abide, in the Vine. If you don’t partake of the Vine, you don’t bear forth the fruit that’s in it. Jesus showed us a powerful truth when He said, “I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, UNTIL that day I drink it new in the Kingdom of God.” There’s a much deeper, spiritual meaning that He’s trying to get us to see. Keep in mind, the Kingdom is not meat and drink. His Words are spirit, and they are life.
Here He was saying that something was going to happen that would cause Him to be separated from bearing the fruit which comes from being connected to the Vine. Up to this point, He had lived in the blessing of His Father. He had worked miracles, walked on water, multiplied food, healed the sick, and cast out demons. But He was about to go to the cross, bearing all sin, sickness, shame, loneliness, poverty, fear, agony, guilt, and oppression- all bondage of the enemy. He was slowly being torn away from the fruit-bearing life of God. He was separated from the Vine (where He brought forth the blessing and the fruit of the Kingdom of His Father) and became cursed- all so that you and I, through faith in what He did, could be freed from it.
But there was a deep, profound revelation He wanted them to understand. When He told them He’d go ahead of them into Galilee after His death, He was letting them know that a new day was dawning, a new order was being put in place. There would be a New Covenant forged between Him and the Father. The curse was ending, and on the third day, there would be a resurrection and new life. He’d never be separated from the blessing, the fruit, the Kingdom, or the Vine again! Read More...
PRODUCING KINGDOM FRUIT
In this unveiling series, Producing Kingdom Fruit, you will be taken to deeper levels of the revelation of Christ. As Jesus was about to take on the curse of sin and death, He told His disciples that He would not partake of the fruit of the Vine UNTIL He drank it new in the Kingdom of God. He was being separated from the Vine that caused Him to produce Kingdom fruit.
Through His death, burial, and resurrection, He paid for the curse on humanity so that you and I could become blessed sons of God. We are the branches connected into the Vine, and we are designed to Produce Kingdom Fruit!
