The "Laodicean spirit" runs freely through the Church today and has slowly lulled many to sleep. Thus they are not prepared. Our God has called us to "watch at His gate," and to "discern the times (Luke 12:56)." This permeating spirit masks itself cleverly and convinces many that they are "rich...

"It shall be, in regard to their inheritance, that I am their inheritance. You shall give them no possession in Israel, for I am their possession." - Ezekiel 44:28 Our inheritance is the Lord Himself. The Lord is desperately hungry for us to possess Him. Did you know the Lord wants you to...

"Now NO BLACKSMITH COULD BE FOUND in all the land of Israel, for the Philistines said, 'Otherwise the Hebrews will make swords or spears.' So all Israel went down to the Philistines, each to sharpen his plowshare, his mattock, his axe, and his hoe. The charge was two-thirds of a shekel for the...

And He said to them all, "If any man will [willingly choose to] come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me." Luke 9:23 Each of us who desires to personally know and serve the Lord must first make this life-changing decision to "take up our cross." When we...

2 Corinthians 13:5 - "Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you— unless indeed you fail the test?" QUESTIONS TO ASK MYSELF: Do I need to renew my vows today? Do I need to come back to the...

"Jesus said to them, 'My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working.'' - John 5:17 Because we are so prone to neglecting and forgetting about the needs of other people, we think that God is capable of being slothful toward us. And so we accuse Him of neglecting us...

"Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you" (Ephesians 5:14). Just because we walk and talk does not mean we are truly awake. Zechariah was not sleeping when an angel roused him "as a man who is awakened from his sleep" (Zechariah 4:1). Perhaps we too need to be...

"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name!... Who forgives all your iniquities. Who heals all your diseases." - Psalm 103: 1,3 God doesn't give people disease any more than we would give our own children poison. People think that God causes all the disasters...

John 13:8 -- Peter said to Him, "You shall never wash my feet!" Jesus answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me." Peter could not imagine Jesus wanting to wash his feet -- his shocked reaction being "Lord, how can You wash my feet!" Jesus says to him: "Peter, if I don't...

Scripture of The Day - STEPPING INTO THE FULL STATURE OF CHRIST “Rise up and shine, for your light has come. The shining-greatness of the Lord has risen upon you. For see, darkness will cover the earth. Much darkness will cover the people. But the Lord will rise upon you, and His...

John 5:19,20 - "Then Jesus answered and said to them, 'Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will...

Isaiah 41:17-20: "When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of...

Jesus said to Nathaniel in John 1:50-51, "'Because I said to you, I saw you beneath the fig tree, do you believe in and rely on and trust in Me? You shall see greater things than this!' Then He said to him, 'I assure you, most solemnly I tell you all, you shall see Heaven opened, and the angels...
