The New Testing

Your days of asking, “Will this be on the test?” so that you can decide what to invest your energy in may be over. Now, the test may be that you weren’t ready for that person you could have offered blessing to if you had prepared. It may be that you don’t see the test […]

Say “Amen!”

Romans 8:34 Who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is the One who died, but even more, has been raised; He also is at the right hand of God and intercedes for us. Romans 8:26-27                                       […]

Your Legacy

Expect that because you are going to be one of the people who will do what you have been ordained to by the King of Glory, that there will be an impact in the earth because you were alive. You will not be one of the diverted – taking up men’s yokes and being distracted […]

Alignment and Timing

If not much happened today, and if tomorrow looks at least as bleak and eventless as yesterday, it is possible that the appropriate response could be to thank God that we have a bit more time to prepare for the day of Salvation and the time of His Favor. That’s when He is going to […]

The Lord’s Prayer

Religious leaders have taught us to memorize the prayer Jesus used as an example of how to pray. He was responding to his followers when they got upset because John’s disciples knew how to pray but they didn’t. We were told to call that prayer the “Our Father” or the “Lord’s Prayer.” The implication is […]

Leaving Comfort, Looking For Peace

Nehemiah was quite likely comfortable in his government job in Babylon.  Babylon means “gate of god.” I have been taught by Evangelical and Pentecostal theologians that Babel, and subsequently, Babylon, mean “confusion,” so I was calling this post “Leaving Confusion, Looking for Peace. While studying for the post, I discovered that Babal is the Hebrew […]


When you are offering ministry to someone, if you could make them more comfortable by offering them a seat or a drink of water, it would be good to add that blessing. Two other things that comfort almost anyone, though almost no one realizes it, are touching and mimicking. If you touch a person’s forearm […]

Interpreting Tongues

Recently I was in a meeting of believers. At the end of the meeting a couple of the leaders wanted to pray over a woman who was visiting. Apparently everyone in the crowd knew her but me. I was asked to pray for her after the leaders prayed. I felt that the Spirit told me […]

Sanctified Vision

In John 4, Jesus saw Samaria as a field ready to be harvested. The disciples who were with Him saw a food market. The woman at the well made no sense to them. In Luke 9, Jesus saw Samaria as a place to rest on His way to Jerusalem. Because the locals refused Him hospitality, […]

Joy In Forgiveness

Suppose you were authorized to travel through the nation forgiving debts. Jubilee style. Imagine if the American federal government had given indebted people the trillion dollars a few years ago, empowering them to pay off their debts,  instead of to the corporations who were being rewarded for poor business decisions. When someone sins against you, […]
