A Social Gospel

Some believers, probably with the gift of evangelism, are very upset over something they call the “Social Gospel.” It upsets them because it is not focused on evangelism. Of course… Some believers, probably with gifts of teacher or pastor, are upset that the church is seeming to be irrelevant to the culture it encounters in […]

Too Tense

Have you ever suffered the effects of what people call a “tension headache”? How often does it come from the tension between what God has said to us He desires to see happening in the earth, and the contrast of what we actually see happening in the earth? […]

My Sin Against You

When Jesus was being tortured to death by soldiers employed by Rome, something else was happening in another dimension. Jesus had ordained a few acolytes to help Him offer a Sacrifice. The soldiers became the acolytes. They became part of the process of offering an Eternal Sacrifice. The Lamb who was slain before the foundation […]

Think Like Yahweh

C. Peter Wagner, in his book This Changes Everything – How God Can Transform your Mind and Change Your Life (Regal Books, ©2013 Peter Wagner), offered this list of American Jewish people’s leadership accomplishments: Jews make up only 2% of the American population, yet 45% of the top 40 Forbes richest Americans are Jewish 33% […]

There is a Prophet

Naaman, commander of the army for the king of Aram, was a great man in his master’s sight and highly regarded because through him, the Lord had given victory to Aram. The man was a brave warrior, but he had a skin disease. Aram had gone on raids and brought back from the land of […]

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation; because by Him everything was created, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities— all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and by Him […]

A Proverb a Day

Happy the person who finds wisdom, the person who acquires understanding; for her profit exceeds that of silver, gaining her is better than gold, she is more precious than pearls — nothing you want can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand, riches and honor in her left. Her ways are pleasant […]

Satan and the Pit

Many of my charismatic and pentecostal friends have a habit of commanding satan to “go back to the pit” where he came from. This prompts me to enjoy on days when I see someone about to eat a peach or cherry or apricot to warn them to be very careful with the pit, looking very […]
