Message of Truth & Hope

When the Spirit and Presence of God is within us, He can get us to the right place at the right time with the right message. Churches are distracted and weak, fighting each other over doctrinal issues while the real enemy rages and is robbing people of peace and hope. Put off the old man and be renewed so if you’re the one person standing between heaven and hell in a…

The Will To Do His Will

There are two spiritual kingdoms – the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan. The desire to do His will is the ingrained evidence of God’s indwelling presence. The new man would want to do what pleases God. The old man cannot because it’s not under His dominion. If I want to do His will, He will lead me because I’m not in conflict with Him.

The Robbery of Fleshly Arguments

The carnal mind is enmity against God. After the Sermon on the Mount there were two groups of people. There were those who humbled down, having received the baptism of John, and who knew that all Jesus had said was right. The Pharisees and lawyers argued against God’s Word and rejected Him and the blessings that faith would have brought to them. This sermon challenges us…

Hold to the Light

In John 12 Jesus was prophesying about the things to come and the darkness that was going to descend when He was crucified. There was no way the people were going to understand His words in their carnal mind, but He was instructing them to hold on in faith to who they believed Him to be. If they believed He was the Messiah, that was all they needed and all that was ahead…

Civil War

After Solomon’s death, God rent the kingdom from Rehoboam’s hands as He had told Solomon He would do, and He made Jeroboam King of Israel. There was a physical civil war between the 2 kingdoms and there was a spiritual civil war in Jeroboam’s heart as he had to choose between the promises God had made to keep him with the voices that told him that the people would return…

Numbering Our Days

The events that are going on around us and the demands on our time press us to choose between the material world we live in and the realities of eternal choices. God is bringing all of our hearts into a place of decision about what we want to do with Him. When we assign a number to our days we maintain a sense of where we are on the timeline and a motivation to hold to…

Overcoming Faith

God teaches us through our experiences how to move from the physical realm to the spiritual realm. Our carnal minds cannot see what God sees – cannot appropriate the plans He has for us and for His church. We need eyes of faith to see that as long as we are standing on the Word of God, where He has planted us, He will get us through whatever is ahead for us.

True Communion (Part 2)

The carnal mind cannot walk in the spiritual things of the Word. The carnal mind wants physical things to hold onto. That’s one of the reasons so many Christians are returning to Jewish rituals. There is comfort in the physical things that are easily understood. Paul told the early Christians, “if you don’t know what to do, follow me, imitate me. Follow me as I follow…

A Heart Set Free

Four women are named in the genealogy of Jesus in Matthew 1. They aren’t the four women we’d expect to find in the King’s lineage, yet each one is remembered and honored by God. Each woman’s story reminds us that God is not interested in seeing people build names for themselves in His kingdom, but in seeing people who value the truth, the seed of life, and who want to…

God’s Amnesty Plan

If we base our understanding of God’s promise to have a spotless bride on the knowledge of good and evil, we will end up forsaking His way of keeping that promise and set about to accomplish it in our own strength because it takes faith to believe that God can really conform us to His image on the earth. God’s salvation is about amnesty for the world, an indwelling Lord…
