Stay Above the Line
There is an old tradition concerning the Hampshire highlands of the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts. In one of his letters, the great poet, William Cullen Bryant, who so loved the Berkshire Hills, mentioned the fact that when the hills were first occupied by settlers, they found that down in the valleys were very dangerous serpents. The rattlesnake was there, the poisonous adder was there, the copperhead was there. In order to escape these serpents, they built their residences upon the hills. Ancient tradition related that there was a “snake line” above which no poisonous snake ever crept. If a person built above an elevation of about twelve hundred feet above the sea level, no poisonous serpents ever bit his children, or destroyed his property, or endangered his life. But if he built in the valley, he was subjected to these deathly dangers.
The scriptures we read suggest a line similar to the “Snake Line”; I will call it the “Worldly Line”. It marks the division between a lower and upper Spiritual altitude. Below the line there is spiritual depletion, fatigue, spiritual poverty. Above the line is spiritual replenishment, strength, spiritual abundance, endurance, and security.

Stay Above the Line is truly the foundation that all our other programs sit upon. Dr Morgan’s revelation of how to maintain a Kingdom life is unparalled and will equip you with the necessary attitude, aptitude, and altitude to continually live above the line.

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth”.
