How to Be a Teaching Priest

As it was during the time of King Asa, so it is in this generation: “Now for a long season Israel hath been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law.” (2 Chron. 15:3). A teaching priest knows God, knows His voice and His statutes, and walks in obedience and surrender to God. The aim of a teaching priest is to establish a foundation of truth…

A Devout Man

There were 3 men described as “devout” in the New Testament. Each story was about how God moved powerfully in their lives, honoring their devotion. Be encouraged that as we determine to be devout in our relationship with God He will use us and move through us in the same ways. Scripture: Acts 8:1-3, Luke 2:25-35, Acts 10:1-6

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.

He was there wanting to use 300 men to defeat an innumerable host of Midianites, but first Gideon had to obey God and destroy his father’s altars to false gods. As we…

Under God’s Dominion

Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego and Daniel refused what the world had to offer them in the palaces of Babylon and remained under the dominion of God. We have things in our lives we need to set aside in consecration to God in order to experience the joy of right relationship with Him. Only one Kingdom will stand when it’s all said and done and we want to be on the side of…

Faith in Action

The conviction of the truth that ends in right actions. The result of faithfulness is change. Faith is not fairy dust that removes our responsibility to obey what God wants. If we choose not to obey, there is also a mountain of cursing. There is a highway of holiness and it’s defined by God’s Word. We need to have faith in both the blessings and His correction. God won’t…
