Full of Power

  Being filled with the Spirit of God and being filled with the power of the Spirit have a trip through the desert between them. Luke 4:1;14 […]


You need a firewall if you have a computer. It stops some stupid people from being able to destroy or steal your stuff. You rarely need a fearwall, though. Hiding until things look easier or safer or more respectable is usually not the path to your awesome destiny. Gideon could not become who the angel said […]


2 Corinthians 12:14-15 Look, I am ready this third time to come and visit you; and I will not be a burden to you; for it is not what you own that I want, but you! Children are not supposed to save up for their parents, but parents for their children. And as for me, […]


Your sons and daughters need a champion to lead them. They don’t need a hall monitor. They don’t need the police. They need someone who will shout a charge to steal 3rd, not someone who is constantly reminding them to keep touching the base until they are ready to run. They may really be maintenance […]

Using the Bible

I have been working on a paper for about a year that gives advice on how to use the Bible without surrendering to the influences of fear, religion, rules of men, and deception of men and unclean spirits. Along with other articles, it is on the second page of my blog site. The link that […]

Whose Image do you Bear?

Genesis 4:25-5:4 And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and named him Seth, “For God has appointed another seed for me instead of Abel, whom Cain killed.” And as for Seth, to him also a son was born; and he named him Enosh. Then men began to call on the name […]

Curses or Blessings

We can’t tell the difference between blessed things and cursed things until we can see them from the throne room of God. There is a Hebrew […]

Using the Lord’s Name in Vain

Acts 19:13-20 The typical version of a “power encounter,” such as the confrontation of Baal and Yahweh on Mt.
