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 2

Do you know what the king of Judah’s first reaction to hearing that the armies were coming against him?​ He broke out in a cold sweat. Fear was his first response. To me that’s comforting. He wasn’t a warrior king like we see in movies, he was just like us. He did what we would…

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…

Look to the skies.

I live in southern California and there is some serious rain heading our way. That means we are going to see some rainbows! I think everyone in the world would agree that it’s a pretty awesome thing to see. Do you know the significance of the rainbow? It came about in Noah’s time. He lived…

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…

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?…

Let’s Be 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 faith. When you really begin to understand this…

Don’t Walk Away.

… “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” – 1 Cor 1:31 If someone asked you right now what they must do to get eternal life what would you tell them? You would probably tell them to believe in Jesus and they will be saved. In the book of Mark, a rich, young…
