Reading The Book

Charles Spurgeon once said that he could find ten men who would die for the Bible for every one who would read it. This is a portion of a book written by the Jewish historian Josephus (AGAINST APION: Section 8): It is true, our history hath been written since Artaxerxes very particularly, but hath not […]

Great Meetings

It’s pretty awesome when believers gather and wonders happen. People being healed, freed from demons, getting saved and worshiping Jesus as if there is no veil between the holy of holies and the front row; it is sometimes clear that Jesus is raised from the dead and wants to influence our meetings with that fact. […]

Being Filled

There are two great basic reasons to be filled with the Spirit of the Lord. One is to have more access to Who He is. Another is to give Him more access to who you are. Once isn’t all there is, either. Be refilled at every opportunity. There are rooms in the dwelling place you […]

Rewarding Work

Jesus taught that work and spiritual disciplines will be rewarded. The warning He offered regarding the rewards was that some will be from humans and some will be from Yahweh: “Whenever you fast, don’t be sad-faced like the hypocrites. For they make their faces unattractive so their fasting is obvious to people. I assure you: […]

Receiving What We Have Believed For

When He entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, in terrible agony!” “I will come and heal him,” He told him. “Lord,” the centurion replied, “I am not worthy to have You come under my roof. But only say the word, and my servant […]

Bad Government

Having Sharia Law mixed into the fabric of the laws of any nation would make for bad government. Being influenced by the false teachings of Islam can’t lead to a good place. Having people in a government who are surrendered to Yahweh can cause even a generally corrupt government with bad laws to become good […]

Pentecost at Your House

Luke described an event in chapter 2 of his book The Acts of the Apostles in which all of the believers at a prayer gathering were filled with the Spirit of Yahweh. They all then started speaking loudly about the magnificent acts of Yahweh. The Holy Spirit then either made them able to speak in […]

Good Luck

We need to grasp both Who He is in us and who we are in Him and allow the truths to affect our thoughts and actions. Seeking His inheritance, and His calling, we will find ours. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened so you may know what is the hope […]

Praying God’s Will

Jesus instructed His disciples to pray, “Your Kingdom come; Your will be done in the Earth as it is in Heaven.” (Matthew 6:10) Jesus prayed “Father, if this cup can’t pass unless I drink it, Your will be done.” (Matthew 26:42) Whoever wrote the letter to the Hebrews (I think Paul) wrote that David, in […]

Mirrored in Jesus’ Light

As the crowd was pressing in on Jesus to hear God’s word, He was standing by Lake Gennesaret. He saw two boats at the edge of the lake; the fishermen had left them and were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, which belonged to Simon, and asked him to put out […]
