  1. Why Jesus Had to Die (Part 2)

    This is Part 2 of "Why Jesus Had to Die". It is a continuation of "Why Jesus Had to Die" (Part 1).
  2. Why Jesus Had to Die (Part 1)

    Why did Jesus have to die? Reasons are explored, including the possibility that God had a larger message to send to all of humanity through Jesus's death -- about the dangers of unfettered human will & the need for submitting our unruly will to God's perfect will.
  3. SUNDAY SCHOOL - July 4, 2021

    Exodus 16:4 - The the Lord said to Moses, "Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may test them, whether or not they will walk in My instruction." This is the test of whether we will get up first thing every day and seek fresh "Manna" from heaven. This fresh daily word from heaven will help keep us fresh spiritually. When we stop gathering it every day, we will start to grow stale and often start to...
  4. PURSUING BREAKTHROUGH

    1 Chronicles 14:11 -- "So they went up to Baal Perazim, and David defeated them there. Then David said, 'God has broken through my enemies by my hand like a breakthrough of water.' Therefore, they called the name of that place Baal Perazim [meaning Master of Breakthrough]." Breakthrough is the result that occurs after you have allowed God to change you. Your sins and iniquities are no longer holding you down and making you weak in your battle against the enemy. You are NOW able to take over...
  5. PRESSING IN

    Philippians 3:14 - "I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." A season of trials is a SEASON of promotion. You will triumph if you don't quit, because God only allows you to face what you are prepared to face with Him. That measuring line is almost always higher than you expect it to be. But, if you're in a season of trials, God is offering you a promotion. He's allowing you to have the opportunity to step into a new level of the boldness and...
  6. WALKING THROUGH NEW DOORS

    "Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you." Isaiah 60:1 Are you hungry to see an increase in the Presence and Power of the Lord at work in your life? You can daily live in the demonstration of the Spirit and power! We serve a supernatural God who performs supernatural acts, and all believers should expect demonstrations of the Spirit and power—signs, wonders, and miracles. MEDITATIONS: Believe the Lord is releasing a powerful impartation to you...
  7. INTERCESSORY WORSHIP

    Jesus simply could not look upon the multitudes and not have compassion for them (Matthew 9:36, 14:14). His heart was so full of the love of the Father that He couldn't look without compassion. We are to live the same way. We should be so full of God's love that rivers of living water should flow from our hearts and change lives and atmospheres everywhere we go. This is what Jesus was referring to when, in Matthew 10:8, He said, "Freely you've received, freely give." He said to heal the...
  8. THE WINE-CELLARS OF HIS LOVE

    Song of Solomon 2:4 - "He brought me into the wine-cellars and set love in order within me." -- You come from your delightful fellowship with the King (Jesus) intoxicated with love -- for you have tasted of the finest wine. The King has brought you into His wine-cellars where you will drink deeply of Him. The more we are swallowed up by His love, the more His light would come to the surface and shine -- the more we become "one" with Him. God calls Himself Light and Love -- let all things...
  9. THE FIERY FURNACE OF TRIALS

    "(Abraham) contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, 'So shall your descendants be.'" Romans 4:18 The enemy has launched a new version of an old "terrorist attack" on the Body of Christ in recent time, which contains a spirit of hopelessness for the future. This attack is to try and cause us to believe we don't even have a future (DESTINY). Well, the enemy is a liar. Contrary to whatever the enemy is trying to show you to...
  10. BEHOLD THE LAMB IN HIS GLORY

    These are days of DESTINY, filled with wonder and excitement. The awe of God is returning to the people of God, filling the heart of God's people with great expectation. Something new and revolutionary is at the door—but the question is not what is at the door, but Who. POINTING TO HIS PRESENCE We must come out of old mind-sets and into the mind of Christ where the blazing glory of His glorious presence literally rests upon us as we minister first unto God, and then receive His strategies...
  11. Scripture of The Day - Carriers Of His Glory

    "And He cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, "What, could ye not watch with Me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." - Matthew 26:40-41 Can you imagine Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane where all He wanted was someone to pray, stay awake with Him for one hour? Did you know that He is still looking for those people today? Are you willing to hang with Jesus for an hour? Are you...
  12. QUENCHING THE PHILISTINE SPIRIT

    "And Goliath cursed David by his gods. The Philistine also said to David, "Come to me, and I will give your flesh to the birds of the sky and the beasts of the field." - 1 Samuel 18:43,44 Goliath first used fiery darts against David (his words of negativity), believing that the negativity alone would cause David to cower down! Goliath's negative words were meant to be a "first-blow" against David to weaken him so that Goliath could move in quickly for the kill! For us today, a Philistine...
  13. Complementarianism vs. Egalitarianism...?

    Looking at the Bible verses that speak specifically to men/husbands or women/wives, I believe that the Bible maintains some clearly complementarian features. I believe that the common error in those teachings is when one mate attempts to strong-arm the other into conformity to them as if the former knew what the final product should look like. (In spiritual matters, we all "see through a glass darkly" [1 Corinthians 13:12].) Hyper-patriarchy is when a husband attempts to twist his wife's...
  14. being one and loving one another

    Allone versus Alone. "you will be one as we are one" (John 17:20-23). Although these verses seem to mean that we will be One with God/Jesus* (and will be whole), they also may mean that we will also be one with each other. If/when people are really One with Jesus/God (or if/when "touch" him spiritually) then they will also then all be One with each other through him (Jesus). (I.e. they are then also one with all other believers through him.) When we are One with him we see everyone as he...
  15. DIVINELY ORDAINED FUNCTION

    2 Timothy 1:9, "God...who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began." The term "holy calling" could also be interpreted "sacred DESTINY." The Lord considers it a sacred thing for us to enter into the divinely ordained function that He has destined for us. The prophet David once said, "Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written...
