New Convert Wins Souls

On October 10, 1821, while praying alone in the woods outside the village of Adams, New York, Charles Finney experienced a powerful conversion. Didn’t just say a sinner’s prayer and then think he was saved. He had an encounter with the living God and knew he was changed – converted – a new creature in […]

Do We REALLY Want Revival?

There is a great deal of talk about revival. Lakeland in its short-lived hayday under Todd Bentley was being called a revival that was going to influence the world and bring healing back to front and center in the Church. Didn’t happen. Wasn’t a revival. At times the Church seems to pursue revival as if […]

Do I Hear the Toilet Flushing?

The U.S. Census Bureau has recently reported that cohabitation among heterosexual couples has hit record numbers as living together – as opposed to getting married – becomes more and more mainstream and totally acceptable. Before I review some of the statistics – we need to recognize, as Christians, that the reality of sexual intimacy outside […]

To Hear You Have to Actively Listen

I love the way the Lord continues to open the scriptures to me and how I see something new almost every day. Recent ones have included the fact that the devil does not have a kingdom as this would make him a king. There is only one King – Jesus! The Bible says in Colossians […]

The Resurrection From the Dead

Heard a sermon recently about the resurrection of Jesus from the dead? Other than occasionally on Easter Sunday – have you heard a sermon on the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead?

My Trusted Old Friend

Just switched over to a new desktop computer this past weekend while I was out of town. My IT guy took away an old and slow-running model Saturday and brought back a new and fasting running one Sunday evening. The new one processes information at a speed 4 times faster than the old one and […]

And the Survey Says

The Bible states that Jesus is “The Way, the Truth and the Life” and that no one gets to see the Father (God) except through Him. That He is the only way into Heaven. That through His death and resurrection we can receive forgiveness – our past forgiven, a purpose for living and a place […]

Imminent Change

My sense from the Lord recently is that He is moving upon His Church to make some major adjustments. These changes will be many and very foundational. As a result of changing the foundation He will be literally changing the look of the Church and the dynamic of life within His Church worldwide. He will […]

Ray Boltz – Announcement About Being Gay

Another prominent and famous Christian has declared that his life style is not along biblical lines. Ray Boltz, last Friday, announced to the world and to his fans (I am not one of them) that he has struggled with same-sex attraction for many years and has finally decided to stop fighting and go with the […]
