Growing in the Lord

A few days ago, my Facebook memories from three and four years ago had quotes from Pastor Rod Parsley of World Harvest Church in Columbus, Ohio, and the host of Breakthrough Television. Pastor Rod, or PRP as he is often tagged, is who God used to begin my journey with the Lord. This was one... Continue Reading →

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the LordHe is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are storedHe has loosed the fateful lightening of His terrible swift swordHis truth is marching onI have seen him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling campsThey have builded him an altar in...

Tammuz: Guard Your Heart and Worship

The Summer months on God’s calendar have begun. Tammuz, Av, and Elul have no major holidays, but God always has something to show us each month. For example, Tammuz is the month Israel built the golden calf in the wilderness (Exodus 32) and is also the month ten of the twelve spies brought back a... Continue Reading →

O Happy Day!

“Before I formed you in the innermost parts I knew you, And before you came out from the womb I set you apart; I have given you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5 LSB). "And it happened that when Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled... Continue Reading →

Relational Theology

Have you ever heard someone say that most of their friends are really just acquaintances? Unfortunately, we tend to be loose with the definition of friend these days. The Bible says that Abraham was a friend of God. The father of our faith is the first person in Scripture called a prophet; more importantly, he... Continue Reading →

Resurrection Passages

 A few things caught my attention while reading the resurrection passages in ‘A Harmony of the Gospels in 30 Days’ on YouVersion. Reading all the Gospel accounts together by story sheds new light on the life and ministry of Jesus. For instance, look at how revelation comes; John 20:9 LSB "For as yet they did...

Sanctification in the Shaking

We heard and saw rumblings among some Wesleyan groups toward more liberal theology in the twenty-teens. In 2020 failed prophecies shook the charismatic movement. In 2021, the reformed camp stood in disbelief as modern heroes began embracing woke ideology and began to nuance the abortion position. Having not yet fully recovered from Resolution 9, Southern...

Walking with the Spirit

When the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all in one place, and suddenly there came a sound from heaven like a mighty rushing wind, and tongues like fire sat on each of them, and they all spoke in tongues as the Spirit gave utterance. Most of us think of Acts 2:1-4 when... Continue Reading →

Walking in the Word

Have you ever started putting a shelving unit together, looked at the pictures in the instructions, said to yourself, simple enough, and then proceeded to toss the instructions aside? Then, twenty minutes later, you're looking for them because you have too many screws or that part doesn't connect to where "it's supposed to?" We wouldn't... Continue Reading →

Pressing Towards Pentecost

Surviving plagues, Lamb's blood keeping away death, seeing a sea parted and crossing on dry ground, bitter waters made sweet and being fed by miracle manna. Can it get any more memorable than this? The Hebrews had seen God do many things in a short amount of time, but now they are pressing towards their... Continue Reading →

What’s Missing?

Those that have turned the world upside down have come here also. Those were the words spoken to a rag-tag bunch of nobodies who changed the known world with the gospel long before tv and social media. I am saddened and sickened by the state of America, yet the blame lies solely at the feet... Continue Reading →

DEVOTION: Jesus, My Vision

This afternoon I posted a hymn to my Instagram stories. I looked up the song and church that sang it on YouTube; I listened to Be Thou My Vision. Doing a thirty-day harmony of the Gospel's reading the last few days has magnified the beauty of Jesus to me. Jesus is beautiful, and men in... Continue Reading →

Jesus at the Center

Jesus said, "You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that bear witness about 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...

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 came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and...

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.  The Righteousness of God Through Faith "But now apart from the Law...
