Why Does Jesus Want You?

When you are in a bank planning to do business with one of the tellers, a man with a gun suddenly appears and tells you to fall on your face. He wants everybody’s money. When he gets through the scattering of people to you, he points the gun at you, demanding your money. You give […]

Your Nephew

If you want to do what Yahweh wants you to do, the only way you can fail is to quit. When Saul was “serving Yahweh” by imprisoning and killing Believers, his God sent Ananias to touch him with freedom and redirection. When Jews were plotting to kill Paul in Jerusalem (Acts 21 – 23), his […]

Distraction and Deception

I have two fronts on which to battle for the realization of righteous behavior in my life: the influences of other humans, other spirits, and my iniquity on one hand, and on the other my ability to be deceived. If I am easily distracted, any toy or pleasure that is dangled in front of me […]

But the Church was Praying

Acts 12 begins with James the brother of John dead – beheaded by Herod. Herod knew that he was barely seated on the throne Rome had given him, because he was a Jewish convert, and Jewish law was clear that only a descendant of Jacob could be king. When he saw how happy it made […]

Seriously…

Be serious! Be alert! Your adversary the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour. Resist him and be firm in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are being experienced by your fellow believers throughout the world. Now the God of all grace, who called you to His […]

Free and Ruling

A trusted friend told me recently that I don’t have to live like a refugee. It is hard to stay out of that mindset on the days that you feel like you are managing Pharaoh’s prison. Even if that is our assignment today, as Paul told the believers in Philippi “In any case, we should […]

Bridge Out

Today I felt led to greet a gentleman who was sitting in my patients’ waiting room. We did a little bit of shallow stuff but quickly were talking about the Kingdom of God. Ed shared several testimonies about his health and then impressed me with one about business.  He owned 3 semi’s and had contracts to […]

Purpose Full

Mark Twain said – the two most important days in your life are the day you were born, and the day you find out why. Wolfgang Simson said – 10% of all humans conceived never reach the age of 5 Only 10% of all humans are born again Only 10% of all born agains know […]

Obedience

Jesus instructed His disciples one day to seek His Kingdom and His righteousness before seeking provision and supplies, so that they would receive provision and supplies. They were directed toward His authority and His nature as a means of accessing His blessings. He told them that His commandments to love God with all they had […]

Rules

As Jesus pointed out to the Pharisees (John 5:37-40), the Book as they knew it was revelation of a Ruler. They had reduced it to a book of rules. Paul did not recommend using the Old Testament as a rule book instructing us about how to please God. In his letter to the Galatian congregations, […]
