Glory to God

Give your God some glory by asking for astonishingly great things in prayer!  Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think—according to the power that works in you — to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. […]

Doing the Work

It has always seemed strange to me that Yahweh asked Moses (Exodus 14:15) “Why are you crying out to Me?” Crying out to the Source of my Strength and Salvation and Life always seems like the right thing to do, heh? How much of what we ask Jesus to do for us in our lives […]

Identifying You

The information that I can properly use to refer to my identity is located outside my self. The two points of reference I can use are my relationships and my work. If you ask me who I am, and my answer is “Douglas Thomas,” I have not answered your question. I have only given you […]

Women in Ministry

The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will explain everything to us.”“I am He,” Jesus told her, “the One speaking to you.”                                       (John 4:25-26 Holman […]

Potentially Powerful

James wrote that faith without works is dead (James 2:26). Paul wrote that in Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision accomplishes anything; what matters is faith working through love (Galatians 5:6). Potential in a battery is power that is latent. It could produce work, but not unless it is connected properly in a circuit with […]

Have Faith

Faith is weird. How do you get some? After you somehow find out after something went well that you actually had it (you think), how to you increase the amount of it that you have? What is it, even?? Maybe faith is doing something to prove you believe something. Sometimes it seems like faith is doing nothing, but […]

Yahweh’s Opinion of You

Samuel’s presence apparently terrorized many Israelis because he had great authority and power from Yahweh. When he was sent to find a replacement for Saul to rule over Israel (1 Samuel 16), the elders of Bethlehem went out to meet him. They trembled as they asked him why he was visiting them. Jesse seemed to […]

How Long, O Lord?

When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those slaughtered because of God’s word and the testimony they had. They cried out with a loud voice: “O Lord, holy and true, how long until You judge and avenge our blood from those who live on the earth?” (Revelation 6:9-11 […]

Prophets and Teachers

The church at Antioch of Syria had both prophets and teachers at work. One is more interested in interpreting the past (teacher) and the other is more interested in interpreting the present and the future (prophet). For both to be welcome as leaders, it must have been like a man who can bring out of […]

That’s Not in the Bible!

I had to laugh out loud today when I overheard someone listening to a very popular teacher on Youtube. The teacher was upset with people like Peter Wagner and Chuck Pierce and John Dawson teaching believers about what they perceive to be proper spiritual warfare over cities and nations and businesses and congregations, etc. He […]
