  1. MORE WAR ON CHILDREN

    I read yesterday that the women in the workforce are the highest that it has ever been. Around 75% of them. So it seems that the priority of families today is money, work, and careers. Now, where did I get this strange idea that children and their needs came first? I never ever left home with an empty house and I never came home to an empty house. But you say, we both have to work to be able to pay all the bills and have the house and car we want. That is precisely it. It is a case of...

    Paul, in Ephesians 5:15-17, offers the Church a most severe warning: "Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people), making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil. Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is" (AMP). It is imperative that we all take a strong...
  3. The Study of Revelation, Part 92

    Revelation Chapter 2 The First Church VERSE 7 continued, “He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.” He that has an ear let him hear… Jesus frequently used this familiar saying during his earthly ministry to call attention to remarks he wished his disciples to especially heed, grasp, and remember (Matt 11:15; 13:9; Mark 4:9,23; Luke 14:35). Such...
  4. The Study of Revelation, Part 91

    Revelation Chapter 2 The First Church VERSE 7 “He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.” This is the first of the seven choruses which contain BOTH the phrase “He who has an ear . . .” and “To him who overcomes . . .” The order is reversed, however, after the first three Churches. In either case, however, this chorus seems to be in a way the...
  5. EMBRACING TRANSITION

    "The Lord blessed the latter part of Job's life more than the former part. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys." - Job 42:12 NIV From time to time we actually have to come out of one project completely before God can transition us to the next assignment. Something that is closing in our lives can make us feel like we are out of control, going to shipwreck, or worse yet, never able to rebound. Sometimes our calendars,...

    Ephesians 3:20 – “Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” Out of the box thinking realizes there is no box. You are the limitless PURPOSE and MANIFESTATION of God’s glory, released into the earth with the same anointing, mission, and message Jesus had over 2,000 years ago. You now live beyond the dimension of needing your needs met, and you live in that kingdom dimension of being the conduit of...
  7. THE CHURCH

    Do you know one of the biggest barriers to the unbeliever accepting Jesus? If you don't know and you may, it is the church or what is called the church. I did a two-year study of the church in the New Testament and believe you me, you would never believe that the church today was the church if you had done the same study. They are alike as chalk and cheese. The New Testament church was full of power. In the main, we lack power of any kind. The New Testament church met in homes and met...
  8. The Study of Revelation, Part 90

    Revelation Chapter 2 The First Church VERSE 4 “BUT… I have this against you, that you have left your first love.” “The word translated “patience” (in Verse 3) signifies a development of heart and character manifesting itself in an endurance of wrong or affliction with contentment, without rebellion of will, and with full acquiescence in the divine wisdom and love, which, while permitting present evils, have promised their overthrow in God’s due time. The Master recognizes and commends...

    Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, "He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end." Instead of losing heart in 2020 and wondering if something will come alive, begin to actively take control of the situation and "call into being things that were not." God created the universe with the creative, miracle-working power of His Word and He asks us to do the same, even today. The enemy wants you to...
  10. The Study of Revelation, Part 89

    Revelation Chapter 2 The First Church VERSE 1 continued, “To the angel of the church of Ephesus write… This is the import of the first phrase with which Jesus introduces Himself to Ephesus: “…These things say He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands.” WHO HOLDS THE SEVEN STARS IN HIS RIGHT HAND These angels are in his FAVOR (right hand) and in a position of guidance and protection. This message must have seemed of...
  11. Prison Dream

    I dreamed last night that I was being taken into prison. The charges were not told to me. But they walked me to the prison cell. There were others in separate stalls and a dirt floor. Then it switched to all the prisoners being taken to the bathroom. There was this woman before I went into the stall that was first nice. Then like a totally different personaility came out and said "I am going to kill you." The warden made her go into the stall next to me. She laid down on the floor and...

    Hebrews 13:5 - “...I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” Do you see any storms on the horizon? Don't quit! Make the decision to press through, to press forward, to keep pressing on, even in the face of certain adversity; God has not brought you this far to drop you now! Declare and meditate on what you know to be the scriptural truths of God! You KNOW He is good! You KNOW He is faithful! You KNOW He will never leave you or forsake you He will bring you through this storm! He...

    Galatians 2:20 - "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me." When we completely lay down our lives, not caring what the outcome is, then we make room for Christ to be fully formed in us (see Galatians 4:19). As that occurs, then it is no longer our faith that accomplishes the promises of God in our lives, rather, it is His faith....
  14. The Study of Revelation, Part 88

    Revelation Chapter 2 The First Church VERSE 1 “To the angel of the church of Ephesus write… Once again Ephesus signifies “first” or “desirable,” and is characteristic of the first period of church history. Contemporaneous with the lives of the apostles and sometimes designated the “Apostolic Era,” this period covers the time span from *A.D. 34 to 70. In the effort of the early Christian Church to promulgate the gospel, two names predominate: the Apostles Peter and Paul. Of the two,...
  15. How to study the book of Revelation, Part 36

    QUALIFICATIONS for BEING ONE of the SEVEN ANGELS Much discussion has gone into naming the seven messengers (angels) to the seven Churches. On the whole, Bible students have been in basic agreement as to the identities of these individuals. Now and then, however, some of us may feel a bit uncomfortable with someone on the usual list and attempt a substitution. It is not unhealthy to question such things. It is wise, however, to have certain standards in mind before seeking candidates so that...
