The Battle is the Lord’s – Part 3

God says in 2 Chronicles 20:15; “You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.” These are the same words God spoke to the Israelites when they cried out for help in the wilderness when being chased by the Egyptians. Today, God’s message is…

The Battle is the Lord’s – Part 1

The people of Judah honesty thought they were going to die. Three, large, bloodthirsty armies were heading their way, threatening to kill them all and take the land that God had given them. (2 Chronicles 20 describes the entire event.) But God had other plans. He intervened, setting ambushes against them and caused them to…

Get Set Free.

  I want to share a truth with you today that can set you free—free from bondage, guilt and condemnation. It can set you free to live in victory and be everything God created you to be. This is a truth that is the very foundation of your Christian faith. When you really begin to…

Living Under Grace

I get asked all the time about what does it mean to live a Christian life under grace. My easiest answer is that when you are conscious of God’s constant supply and love for you, you are living under grace. Sometimes, though, we can’t help but be more aware of the everyday demands of life….

Jesus is willing…be healed!

Do you know that it is God’s will for you to be healed? In fact, Jesus always healed the sick who came to Him. The blind, lame, mute, deaf and demon-possessed—He healed them all! The Bible says that if you have seen Jesus then you have seen the Father.  You want to see what God…

Eating your sins?

I was recently sent a bizarre article that talked about something called “sin eating”. When a loved one died in parts of England, Scotland, or Wales in the 18th and 19th centuries, the family would grieve, place bread on the chest of the deceased, and call for a man to sit in front of the…

Only Jesus Is Altogether Lovely.

I love the symbolism of Jesus as fine flour. Leviticus 2 says, “When anyone offers a grain offering to the Lord, his offering shall be of find flour…” Fine flour comes from wheat that has been pounded and beaten again and again, and sifted several times. Doesn’t that remind you of Jesus’ sufferings and sacrifice…

Words with Power.

  In Bible times, a king’s word carried tremendous power. What he said would always come to pass. “Where the word of a king is, there is power…” – Ecclesiastes 8:4 Do you know that we are called kings? Revelation 1 says that Jesus has washed us from our sins with His blood and made…

Quit Cleaning The Fish.

Scripture calls us to be “fishers of men”. We are NOT called to clean the fish when they are caught. That is God’s job. What the heck is going on in the church today? Why are our pastors and leaders so focused on getting in the pulpit and beating up the sheep about their behavior?…

Creating Unity 101

I hear from church leaders and pastors that are always trying to figure out how to unify their churches. It seems that they want to build unity by having more bible studies, more outreach programs, more activities for kids, maybe a Men’s Retreat. There is a great story in Luke that occurs after Jesus is…

Building A Ministry Right

1 Corinthians 3:10-15 (AMP) – “According to the grace (the special endowment for my task) of God bestowed on me, like a skillful architect and master builder I laid the foundation, and now another man is building upon it. But let each be careful how he builds upon it, For no other foundation can anyone lay than…
