Teach Your Children

One of the “Seven Mountains of Influence” on human cultures around the planet is the Family. People are beginning to grasp that most believers are called to ministry outside the jobs that fit inside congregations. Many congregations are beginning to equip people for their ministries in business, education, government, arts & entertainment, and media & […]

Seeing the Poor

Matthew 26:6-13 When Jesus was drawing near His sacrifice, He was anointed by a woman with an expensive perfumed ointment. His disciples complained that the value of the ointment was wasted on Jesus and should have been used to give some provision to the local poor. Jesus’ answer included the information that poor people would […]

Moving out of the Desert

Jesus was driven by the Holy Spirit into the desert when He was baptized. In 40 days, a work was done in Him of preparation for His purpose. Israel was driven by the Holy Spirit into the desert when they were baptized (1 Corinthians 10). In 40 years, two of the several million original citizens […]

Some Assembly Required

Hebrews 10:23-25                                                                                                        Let us hold […]

Weakening Nations

In Isaiah 14:12, Lucifer was accused of weakening the nations. The United States of America has, by Abraham Lincoln’s description, a government of, by, and for “the people.” (Gettysburg Address, 1863) A nation that is its own authority is one of the kingdoms of this world. Jesus prophesied in Matthew 24 and 25 several things […]

Words as Weapons

This charge, son Timothy, I put to you, in keeping with the prophecies already made about you, so that by these prophecies you may fight the good fight, armed with trust and a good conscience. (1 Timothy 1:18-19 Complete Jewish Bible) David fought well with Goliath and Saul and the Philistines because he believed the […]

Choosing Well

You have too many choices. You just need to choose one thing and follow it through to the finish: Learn to recognize the voice of your Shepherd and choose to do whatever He says. Part of the process of learning His voice is making mistakes. That fact doesn’t seem to surprise or trouble Him. It […]

Armsless Army

Like the scene described in 1 Samuel 13&14, many leaders of the church are unprepared to lead in the battles ahead. Some young people are going to step up and lead like young Jonathan did when he attacked the Philistine army with his armor bearer. Yahweh then shook the earth and spread terror among the […]

Enter the Kingdom

Much confusion, due to not much study, exists regarding the nature of the Kingdom of Jesus. Some useful Kingdom information was shared by Peter in his second epistle (2 Peter 1:11): “For in this way, entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be richly supplied to you.”       […]
