“Liberty isn’t liberty from Jesus’ leadership. Liberty is liberty from defilement and darkness and the things of darkness that defile our heart. … There’s a lot of people: they want liberty from Jesus’ restraints.

[Mike Bickle IHOP 3/08] Making a Purity Covenant: Seven Practical Commitments — The Lord will visit IHOP-KC with an open door of glory in the spirit and a door of ministry to the nations. When Jesus opens a door of glory to release more of His manifest presence then He requires more agreement with His heart (a higher standard of obedience). … This is a promise with a warning of judgment.
Mike Bickle’s (IHOP) prophetic dream: “What is coming is so much more intense than we imagine.” “We must experience manifestation of His majesty that makes us tremble and His kindness that moves us to repentance and servanthood.” “We will receive angelic assistance and great power…”
Chuck Crismier with Mike Bickle: An incorrect understanding of Romans 8 closes one’s ears to truthers and opens the door to PARALYZED Christian PASSION. ‘Worship’ then is a game. ~50% of ‘Christians’ are Heart Adulterers!
