Tools for Preparation

This is a list of tools and what they are good for: BIBLE STUDY TOOLS. They can help with the part of your preparation that includes learning what the Scriptures say. Most of them are available online freely. I have all of them on my phone. If you need help finding any of them let […]

Receiving Things

The processes by which we receive things from the Spirit seem to be a little different, depending on the gift: we gain knowledge, but we discover truth. We obtain abundant life. I think that there may be an indication there of which things come by standing in the right place at the right time, compared […]

New Vinedressers

Jesus told a parable (Mark 12:1-12) about a landowner and a vineyard that he leased to some vinedressers. These tenant farmers tried to take the farm for themselves, but Jesus said that it was going to be taken from them and given to other vineyard keepers. The chief priests, the scribes, and the elders knew […]

Blog News

I have talked to a few people recently who were surprised when I told them that when there is a Scripture reference in a blog post that is a different color than the rest of the text, you can click it and go to biblegateway.com and read the Scripture there. It may be more convenient […]

Sowing and Reaping

You don’t have to always reap what you sow, even though that is the normal state of things. One day, Father sowed His Son. You can reap What He sowed. There is probably more fruit from that available than you have harvested, no matter how much you have found so far. Look for more. […]

Behavior and Life

Our work in the earth regarding others’ lives is not to make better behaved people of them. People need to know the difference between right and wrong. More important, though, is to know the difference between Life and death. Leading them to abundant life by introducing them to Life Himself will improve their behavior. Pointing […]

Rules or Maps

The Bible doesn’t change us. It reveals Christ to us. It reveals to us what we really look like – like a mirror (James 1:22-25). When we memorize it, and meditate on it, when we use it as a map instead of a rule book, the Holy Spirit will use it to lead us into […]

The Kingdoms of The World

The human governments and cultures of nations aren’t sources of darkness and abuse simply because evil people are ruling in them and influencing them. Darkness overtakes cultures and governments because sons and daughters of Yahweh are not rising up to bring influence to them from their relationships with the King of Righteousness. You may feel […]

Fertilizer & Prayer

Leonard Ravenhill made some challenging comments about our preparation for Sunday morning meetings. The idea he presented was that if we spent at least as much time getting spiritually ready as we did getting dressed up and made up, we would have different meetings, and we would be different after we had them. If we […]

Embarrassed by the Unexplainable

Are you stuck in a place where all you expect to do, where all you expect Yahweh to do, is what can be easily explained? Where what is expected is what seems possible under normal circumstances? Sometimes that is exactly what we should be expecting. Much of the time, though, I think that we should […]
