Irons in the fire

Ministry can be hazzardous to your spiritual and physical health. Someone once said: “If your output exceeds your input, then your upkeep will be your downfall.” And that is very true even today. Let’s state that another way – When you have too many irons in the fire – you put the fire out. So, […]

A Question

I collect odd statements – statements are collections of words that actually say something but sound weird or overwhelming. Example – “the ontological bifocation of reality”. Not trying to impress anyone.As a wordsmith who works with words daily I simply like concise phrases that say something in the best manner possible – expressing a profound […]

Dead Fish Float Down Stream

There are some words that need to become a part of the Church today; especially the word “intentional”. Christians apparently “intentionally” get saved and it’s all down hill – sorry, down river, from there. They seem to think that there is nothing more they need to do and there is nothing further from the truth. […]

Believe It or Not – Bible Blog #12

The Scriptures: “Brothers, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day. But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne. Seeing what was ahead, he spoke […]

Body Beautiful

I have had a full day of ministry. On the way to my morning preaching engagement in the city I live in I needed something to eat. So, stoped at a 7-11 (thank Heaven). I was able to find a banana and an apple to eat. Good food – not junk food. When you are […]

Extra, Extra, Extra – Read All About It

It is officially the summer and we tend to slow down a fair amount during this great season. Sitting out with your morning coffee, nights out back by the fire pit, camping and holidays. Why not that this “slower season” and do some extra Bible reading. It is a great time to spend more time […]

The Next Step or Two – Calgary #6

I have been back from Calgary for almost 48 hours and have had a little time to think about my time there with Dennis Cramer and the people of Kingdom Ambasador Ministries. It is always good to let thoughts and feeling settle and to simply go back to “normal life” for a day or two […]

The Radical and Raw Edge

The Church in North America is too comfortable. We need to be challenged – challenged to be radical and actually believe the Bible. Specifically, that we can reach our world – even our nation – for Jesus Christ. We need to believe (and so act upon) The Great Commision to “go into all the world […]

Validation and Approval – Bible Blog #11

The Scriptures: “Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know – this Man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a […]

God Is Up to Something Great!

God Is Up to Something Great! In every city and town where I minister I see young men who are called to be apostles and prophets. It is exciting to see the number of them that are actually out there. Some already know the call of God on their life. Some have a sense that […]
