Damon Thompson Ministries - This day, dare to exchange the fear in your eyes for the jealousy in His. Your exodus is overdue. Your discomfort is your grace-filled invitation to the Father's glorious design called "The Wilderness." It is the place where your wild DNA is redeemed and where you are delivered once and for all from all inferior domesticated notions. Fear forced you to be a conformist in a sterile paradigm incapable of reproduction. Courage is calling you even now into the holy wild of the Father's supreme design. In the devouring devotional jealousy of His majesty we will never be the same. If you can give it up, you can have it all.

Damon Thompson Ministries - The Wilderness inherits a supreme promotion in value when we realize that it is God's ultimate zip code for releasing strategic patterns designed to receive and host His glory. If a man cannot be trusted to yield to the divine pull of the Father's jealousy made manifest in the wilderness, then that man will never be able to be trusted with the inheritance of the new wine-skin pattern. The new pattern is not intended to promote or in any way draw attention to the man, his church or his ministry; however this pattern is permission granted to build one distinct thing for one specific cause: a place where He comes and ultimately a place where He stays.
Damon Thompson Ministries - Honor and Alignment. Experience the freedom, power and rest that comes from being a son. Honor opens the door to you becoming who you are called to be. Johnson teaches about the marks of a dishonorable son and what it looks like to dishonor. Dishonor will disqualify you from the transformative glory.
Damon Thompson Ministries - Is what I am doing in life having any impact for eternity's sake? If my life is a vapor, how do I make sure I do not waste my vapor? God wants to remove worthless, useless, and impure things for the sake of fruit. God did not call you for the sake of your calling or purpose. He called you first and most importantly to Him and to be like a son sitting in the safety of your Father's lap. Your perspective determines your priorities and your priorities will determine your pace. Slow down and get connected to Him and you will naturally bear fruit.
Damon Thompson Ministries - Do not just simply enjoy revival. If you only enjoy revival it will be short-term. Revival is an authorization to build a culture that re-presents a world that makes earth look like heaven. Enjoy the move of God, but also pay the price to build something out of it. Revival authorizes you to build a culture that baptizes people in the spirit of revival and then to send those people all over the globe to spread revival. Allow God to build something in you so that one day He can build something through you.
Damon Thompson Ministries - Prophetic Funneling Part 1: A funnel is broad at the top and narrows at the point of entrance. The Lord will initially give people a broad and generic calling and purpose for their life but after a period of time walking with Him, He crucifies inferior ambitions until He brings us down to the place where we begin to desire a point of entrance for Him and not a level of success for us. He funnels your assignment from something broad and generic to something targeted and specific. In the funnel there is spinning and often great pressure but stay in the funnel because God is narrowing you and shaping you into a vessel of honor.
Damon Thompson Ministries - The 90 days may have been about receiving qualification for life's greatest purpose which is "proximity." However, it is likely that we will never get to a place with God called "near enough." The generator for our purpose must then be "thirst." Many continually ask God to come and give them something but never ask God to give them the ability to give something to someone else. It is still more blessed to give than to receive.
Damon Thompson Ministries - We are learning how to sit in a seat called "beloved" at a table called "goodness" in a house called "Abba's" in a land called "free indeed." If you ever try to get into close proximity with God with the mindset that you are guilty you will never make it into close proximity. You have to accept your status of innocence through the blood of Jesus if you want to ever approach the throne of grace boldly. Your boldness cannot come as a consequence of what you did or did not do. Your boldness has to come out of the confidence of knowing the sacrifice of God was sufficient.
Damon Thompson Ministries - It is amazing how much better of a job we can do navigating struggles when we focus on the promises of God instead of our struggles. If you put the spotlight on the struggle it causes you to take your attention off of the promise. Refuse to let your struggles have the spotlight. Keep the spotlight and the focus on the promises. Most charismatic people are too emotional to rejoice when they have issues. You are not entitled to sulk when you have issues and it will actually keep you from breakthrough. Without faith it is impossible to please God. We must stay in faith even when it contradicts our feelings.
Damon Thompson Ministries - We often refer to the man in Mark 10:17 as the Rich Young Ruler when in reality he is actually a Poor Young Slave. Many are willing to acknowledge Jesus as "good" but are not willing to make Him "God" of their life. God is looking for people who are willing to sell all they have so they can have all of who He is. The price cannot compare to what He has called you to inherit in the end.
Damon Thompson Ministries - The Life of Thomas. God has the remedy for your shattered faith. He has wounds that were made to cause you to believe again. Thomas' issue was not doubt, it was pain. What do you need when it hurts too much to believe? You need a God who can walk through walls. Take His hands and explore the scars; they are proof that His love will never fail.
