California, Gay Marriages and the Church

California is legalizing gay marriages as of June 17, 2008. This has been passed before and then challenged in the courts. The courts have now decided that their ruling will stand even though it appears that in November the people of California will be voting on a constitutional amendment that could, if it passes, limit […]

Doctrines of Demons

The apostle Paul writes very little about Satan and even less about demons or evil spirits. This in spite of the fact that he was on the front lines planting churches in places that had never heard the Name of Jesus. He makes only five references to the demonic; four of those in the context […]

Can Believers Have Demons?

Here’s the question: “Can believers have a demon?” Here’s the answer: “Yes, but why would thy want one? They’re not pets.” In the early church they believed that a believer could have a demon if they had carried it over to their new life after being born again. This is still true today. If you […]

False Apostles and Prophets

There is still much to be learned about the apostolic and prophetic ministries and their respective anointings. However, one thing is clear from the scriptures – as God reintroduces these ministry offices into the Church there will arise in the land many false apostles and prophets. This will increase as the end of the age […]

A Church EXPANSIVE With Energy

I sense that there has been a shift in the spiritual realm here in North America. I have sensed it both here in the churches in western Canada as well as in northern California and into Montana. I think it is from coast-to-coast-to-coast in both nations and is not limited to one area of either […]

Two Cults Talking?

Megachurch and the homosexuals

Soulforce – a pro-homosexual organization – is visiting the pastors of megachurches in the United States just to talk and come to understand each other. They are targeting ones we all know – Eddie Long in Atlanta, Joel Osteen in Houston, Bill Hybels – Chicago area, T.D. Jakes in Dallas, Harry Jackson’s Church in Beltsville, […]

Ukraine Trip #2

The dates are November 6 to November 21, 2008. The location – Ukraine. You fly Regina to Toronto, Toronto to either Germany or Switzerland, and then (sometimes after an overnight in a hotel) you fly to Kiev. Between 36 hours in air and airports and jet lag (9 hours time difference) it is not an […]

Ukraine Trip #1

This will be the beggining of our postings for a trip to Ukraine to minister. I have not been back for a number of years but my heart still remains there as I have been in the nation three times in the last decade and each trip has been life changing. I would move there […]
