hen we were in Ireland ministering several years ago, I remember asking one of the farmers about the beautiful rock walls that separated the pastures. He told me those rocks once laid in the pastures but had to be removed as they plowed up the fields. And so, the rocks they removed from the pasture became the stunning rock walls…

The war is raging right now and God, through Christ, has given us the victory over the devil. With that in view, however, understand that in your personal battles, you can lose the very joy that strengthened you through them. (Neh 8:10) Without the joy of the Lord, we face the real possibility of becoming bitter. Warfare left unchecked can…

Move Me

“And see, now I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there, except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me. But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race…

Personal Cross

ast night, many in the Body of Christ set aside time to remember the crucifixion; we call it Good Friday.  Hours before Jesus was crucified, He instituted the Lord’s Supper so that we would, on a regular basis, not only remember, but also proclaim the “Lord’s death until He comes.”  “For as often as you eat this bread and drink…

oubt doesn’t write you out or write you off. John the Baptist was in prison awaiting his own execution. He was in great turmoil and doubts filled his mind as he saw the imminent end of his brief life. So much so, he sent his disciples to ask Jesus if He really was the One, The Messiah, or “should he…

TapTap

was leading a group of about 30 workcampers into Haiti. But I had failed to meet all my self-imposed spiritual criteria, and I felt the enemy crashing in on me. Before each workcamp, I had a checklist of spiritual preparations. My checklist included Godly things, like: fasting, prayer, and waiting on God in worship to gain His mind. And yet…

We just returned from Haiti where we were there to assist in recording and hosting a Pastor’s Conference.  There were approximately 160 pastors there from all over the country of Haiti. It was a powerful time and God worked so mightily in their midst.  These men are giving their lives to see their people and their country saved. God is…

“Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent.” (Rev 3:19)  “Those whom I love…” God loves you. The God who flung the universe into existence loves you, personally, individually.  God loved you so much He sent His only Son, Jesus, to die for you, to forgive you of your sins, and restore fellowship with Him…

I am the Lord that Heals…  Exodus 15:22-27 If I were to ask you where it is in the Bible that God first reveals Himself as the God Who heals us, what would you say?  If you’re like most people (including myself), you might be looking for a place in the Scripture where God makes a lame man walk, heals…

Climbing

uring worship last Sunday, I saw this image in my spirit:  Two guys were climbing up the side of a mountain, and as the lower guy was climbing, rocks and debris from the guy above him were being kicked in his face. And with that visual, the story of Jonathan and his armor bearer came clearly into view. I share…

Cross

This is the day we remember the passion (or suffering) of Jesus on the cross and all that He did to save us. Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe; Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow.            Elvina M. Hall What He did on the cross, no one…
