A Prophetic word for the Middle East (Feb. 16, 2015)

A Prophetic word for the Middle East (Feb. 16, 2015)

There is a coming sea change in the battle with our enemy who was breeding and expanding unfettered in the Middle East. The people of America and their values that God gave as an underpinning for the republic represents the thing the enemy hates most. The enemy will not stand to see freedom spread any longer. We have heard it be said that people of America are the targets of religious zealots who will stop at nothing to kill and…

A house built by plumbers

A house built by plumbers

When we think about the five-fold and what is involved, we often flip over to Ephesians 4 to read about the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher. I’m sure we’ve all read it a thousand times. This is how God instructs us to build his house. I want you to now imagine you are building a house in the natural which requires you to use an architect, an electrician, a plumber, a carpenter and a painter. Only when you hire…

Spiritual Growth: 10 Keys to Spiritual Growth in God

Spiritual Growth: 10 Keys to Spiritual Growth in God

There is a variety of material in circulation on what it means to develop spiritual growth in your life. I can personally find everything from extremely useful to useless dribble depending on where I go. Some of this is due to nomenclature and how we define “spiritual growth,” but more of it has to do to the fact that spirituality or spiritual growth more specifically speaking, is not something that can be taught by anyone other than those who have…

Gaining in our Authority – Luke 4

Gaining in our Authority – Luke 4

One of the things I often think about is Jesus’ ability to heal and cast out spirits who had to obey him. I desperately want to see his people get healed and freed from sin and as I read in scripture what Jesus did, I want this for his people today so very badly. Yet it seems as if it is elusive and that we are missing something because most of us are not walking in that power. I take…

Avoiding the “I never knew you” list

Avoiding the “I never knew you” list

Doing good works is good. Doing great works is better, right? Well not so fast. That’s what some thought in the New Testament when they were casting out demons and performing miracles until Jesus said, “Get away from me, I never knew you.” The scripture is well known. You’ll find it in Matt. 7:22. Jesus is giving his famous Sermon on the Mount. He just spent a great deal of time laying out his now famous doctrine of love, life,…

The Church Man vs the Spirit Man

The Church Man vs the Spirit Man

The Church man is faithful and regularly tithes 10%. He shows up every Sunday, he gets his “god” from the sermon, and wants to please the pastor. The church man is busy and has no time for prayer nor much time to study and gets his value from the pastor. He pleases God, by pleasing the pastor. He’s learned to feel a sense of obligation, loyalty and duty to the system of church. The Church man serves faithfully and he…

Putting People in Pastures not Prisons

Putting People in Pastures not Prisons

We act like slaves! Yes, it’s true. Many of us do not lead, have lost our prophetic edge, do not lean on spiritual gifts and instead follow recycled “old school” thinking. Traditions and our church templates are comfortable and accepted and staying inside those walls seems best. It makes sense but there’s no faith in that. Of course it’s far less risky than stepping out like revivalists of old did, scorned and persecuted because they dared to love Jesus enough to risk…

A Spiritually Led Church Environment

A Spiritually Led Church Environment

I love this video. I put it together some time ago from a tape series on doing church in America by Graham Cooke. This is truly one of the most inspired messages I have ever heard, bar none. I think you’ll enjoy it as Graham talks about iniators, enablers and restrictors in churches and how we often make unconscience victims of some of our biggest heros in church. There’s a good bet if you like this blog, he’s talking about you!…

Contrasting Flesh with Faith

Contrasting Flesh with Faith

There are some who walk in fear and there are some who walk in faith. There are people who follow God’s law and there are those who follow God’s voice. There are people who live under law and there are those who live under grace. There are some who talk of God’s power and there are some who walk in God’s power. There are some who of speak of great miracles and there are those of whose miracles we speak….
