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 →

Keeping a Journal

Growing up, I always heard Kenneth Copeland say, "one word from God can change your life." Today as I was reading my Bible, that phrase came to mind, and I began to think about it and different characters in the Bible. Moses saw a burning bush, and when he turned aside to see, the Lord...

My Prayer for the Charismatic Movement

Yesterday I saw an ad on Facebook for an online discussion about if the prophetic is still for today. It had several well-known leaders in the prophetic movement listed to speak. I thought to myself; you're missing the point; charismatics aren't questioning if prophecy is for today; they're asking about the accuracy and legitimacy of... Continue Reading →

When Discernment Hurts

What comes to mind when you think of the word discernment? Is it angry basement bloggers? Someone with an ax to grind? Or is it, as one minister recently said, "someone who doesn't have the Holy Spirit but a relationship with the Bible, those people lead people to Hell." That little snippet right there shows...

Reflections And Questions

July 2021. There is a distance between now and September of 2019, when all the questions began. That distance allows for clarity of thought and better reflection. It started with examining whether Todd Bentley, the leader of the Lakeland Revival, was qualified for ministry. The clear answer was no, a committee said as much, but... Continue Reading →

My Testimony

Throughout the Old Testament, Israel was commanded to remember its history. As I will soon be entering my thirty-fourth year of life and twenty-fifth year of walking with Jesus, I felt compelled by the Lord to re-write and restructure my written testimony and my history with God up to this point. I wrote my testimony... Continue Reading →

Ask the Hard Questions

Now and then, we need to take inventory of our spiritual lives. We need to evaluate if what we believe is in line with what Scripture teaches. I know that sounds strange but let's look at two Scripture passages to see how we as Christians could fall into error. The first passage we will look... Continue Reading →

Examining Beliefs and Avoiding Extremes

On August 30, 2019, I wrote a post on some troubling things in the Body of Christ and specifically in charismatic circles. Towards the end of that post, I made a statement, make the determination now that Scripture is your standard. Regardless of what we have been taught, have grown up believing, or heard in prophetic words,... Continue Reading →

Thoughts on Recent Events

Two weeks ago, The Lord instructed me to begin reading the sermons of John Wesley, so I pulled out the two double volumes and started with volume one, sermon one. Since that time, two high profile leaders have renounced their faith, and an international revivalist is accused of some very dark stuff. I believe these... Continue Reading →

Theowhat?

I’m sitting in a coffee shop with a mocha and water, staring at this screen with my heart full about what I want to write today, but I cannot come up with a good opening to capture your attention. I’ve been a Charismatic Christian all my life. I believe God still speaks, in healing, prophecy,... Continue Reading →
