Stir and Build

I have felt like a spiritual onion in the last few weeks, as each day, the Lord has peeled off some layers. So many of us have been hit by attacks in the last couple of years that we were not prepared for, and that wasn't because we didn't know how to be ready; we... Continue Reading →

Jesus at the Center

Jesus said, "You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to me!1" So whether it's the Jewish roots, believing for signs and wonders, or even wanting to make sure all your doctrinal t's are crossed and i's dotted - the enemy wants you to get away from...

Power for Life

"For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword—piercing right through to a separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart." (Hebrews 4:12 TLV) I have treasured Your word in my heart, so I might not sin against... Continue Reading →

Living Like Jesus

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His... Continue Reading →

Walking in Grace

 I am continually amazed at the grace of God over me, a sinner. A few passages in Romans stuck out in my reading today and continued some conviction I have been feeling the last few days but more on that in a moment.  How God Accepts Us “But now God’s righteousness apart from the Torah has been...

God’s Calendar

What's today's date? What do you have going on for the rest of this week? Did you have to think about two different calendars? A family calendar and a work calendar? Does your fiscal year start at a different point than the new year? What's with all the questions? I wanted to prepare your mind... Continue Reading →

Replacement or Reconciliation

In the garden, Jesus prayed that we all might be one, and in Ephesians, Paul wrote that Jesus tore down the middle wall of separation between Jew and Gentile. There are many different notions of unity; some believe we need to put away doctrine and unify with everyone who claims Jesus. Others say unity is... Continue Reading →

Heightened Spiritual Warfare

The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Those were the words of the Apostle Paul in a letter to the Corinthian church. I’m sure by now you have heard of the leaked draft from the Supreme Court that will reverse Roe. It’s not a... Continue Reading →

Why Jewish Roots?

I was saved at an early age and grew up in church. My journey has allowed me to see various parts of the body of Christ, but in March of 2014, the Lord began preparing me for something that would happen during my birthday weekend that year. April 15-20, 2014, I attended a Passover Conference,... Continue Reading →

My Favorite Five

I know you probably think there is no way I can pick only five Bible translations, but even though I have several, I have found I hover around the same five. So today, I figured I'd do a fun post (fun for me anyway and hopefully of benefit to you) and tell you why my... Continue Reading →

Are You Being Distracted?

The Hillsong Documentary, Julie Roy's latest attack on John MacArthur, The latest SBC kerfluffle, and crazy charismatic behavior all have one thing in common - distraction. The enemy uses all of these things to get believers' attention out of God's book and onto Facebook and into Twitter battles. There is a difference between Paul calling... Continue Reading →

The Cure for a Dysfunctional Church

Growing up, I heard lots of teaching on the gifts of the Spirit, and being Pentecostal/Charismatic; I saw lots of weird stuff under the guise of the move of the Spirit. As I was thinking about the extra emphasis on the gifts of the Spirit and the minimal focus on the fruit, the thought came... Continue Reading →

From Passover to Pentecost

When Jesus rose from the dead, He stayed on earth for forty days. There is not a detailed record of what took place during those days, but there is one insight that is fascinating to me. Luke 24:44-49 NLT “Then he said, “When I was with you before, I told you that everything written about... Continue Reading →

Resurrection Reflection

I pray everyone has enjoyed a wonderful Resurrection Sunday. The thing I love about Resurrection Sunday is that it wasn't a typical Sunday. I don't say that because Jesus rose from the dead, even though that is not typical in the least. However, the particular day had a significance of its own, which Jesus fulfilled... Continue Reading →

Good Friday Reflection

Today is Good Friday, the day we remember the sacrifice Jesus paid on behalf of our sin to redeem us and restore us to a right relationship with God. Many will attend Good Friday Communion services, others will attend a Messianic Passover Seder, but all of our minds will be on Jesus, our Lord, and... Continue Reading →
