Africa and…

There are a number of invitations for this ministry to go to Africa to minister. Two of the most recent being from Uganda and, this morning, Kenya. I appreciate the need that exists in these nations – and elsewhere – for the gospel of Jesus Christ to be preached and people healed and saved. However, […]

Ukraine Trip

Our planned two week ministry trip to Ukraine is coming together slowly. It appears we will now be there in October of this year. We will be working with two different churches teaching leaders and believers about God’s supernatural gifts and how they function today in the life of believers. As well, we hope to […]

Jesus Who?

When I am working on the streets and visiting business offices to share the love of God and the message of salvation – I have discovered that many people seldom, if ever, think about the Church. However, they do think about Jesus. There is a book by the title: “They Like Jesus But Not the […]

Test the spirits

Yesterday we looked at “testing ourselves” to see if we are in the faith. Today we move from 2 Corinthins 13 over to 1 John 4:1-3. These verses state: THE SCRIPTURE: Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out […]

Pass the Test

The Scripture: 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? But I trust that you will realize that we ourselves do not fail the test. (2 Corinthians 13:5-6) Paul has […]

It Is Time, Says The Lord

This past few weeks I have become even more excited about being a member of the Lord’s Church and part of His Kingdom. The feeling is that “I was born for such a time as this”. Well, of course I was – God plans everyone’s birth, the time and the season that they are born […]

An Apostolic People

When a ministry team includes an apostle the local church will have the tendency to be apostolic in nature. The people will share the apostolic anointing that is upon the founder and apostolic team member. They will become “sent ones” working on the expansion of the local church, reaching out in the area of missions, […]

The start of a new one

This is just an announcement that I am starting a “Daily Bible Insights” blog which will start each day with a scripture passage followed by my commentary on the passage and an application from that passage and commentary geared to your daily life and walk with the Holy Spirit. It is my hope that these […]

If you build it – I won’t come

There seem to be three main models used to build churches today. They are: traditional, seeker, and emerging models. The tradional churches tend to be doctrinally and methodologically conservative; the seeker churches often are doctrinally conservative but methodologically flexible; the emerging churches apparently can be both doctrinally and methodologically flexible. I am troubled by all […]

The “Revival” in Flordia

There is a supposed revival going on in Flordia. The speaker or lead is Todd Bentley. I believe he is a heretic and teaching content that is not biblical nor Christian as all heretics do. (See yesterday’s blog – Cloud of Witnesses -filed in The Apostle blogs). Some say that they can discern and so […]
