Measure of Faith

I am convinced that many people do not understand the dynamics of Faith.  The Bible states that every Believer is given a measure of Faith. (Romans 12:3)  That seed of Faith brings us to the knowledge of Jesus and the Kingdom of God, but that is only the beginning.  We have a responsibility to nurture that Faith so it grows into spiritual energy that affects not only our lives but the lives of those around us.  Someone once said, “That Faith is like the body; it has to be fed.”  Many have just e

Miracles and Message

Under God’s direction, Jesus “drafted” twelve men to be an extension of His ministry.  Jesus realized that He was limited in His outreach.  These handpicked men would be given supernatural power to present God’s message of reconciliation to the “lost sheep of the house of Israel.” (Matthew 10: 6)   The miracles that they displayed were the bridge to the message.  The goal was not to achieve physical healing for the people, but a spiritual awakening.  The twelve were to preach the Kingdom of Heav

Don't Quit Waiting On God

Don't Quit Waiting On God   1 Kings 19:1-4 NLT 19 When Ahab got home, he told Jezebel everything Elijah had done, including the way he had killed all the prophets of Baal. 2 So Jezebel sent this message to Elijah: "May the gods strike me and even kill me if by this time tomorrow I have not killed you just as you killed them." 3 Elijah was afraid and fled for his life. He went to Beersheba, a town in Judah, and he left his servant there.   Elijah, by the Spirit of God, ac

God Has a Glorious Plans for You.

God Has a Glorious Plans for You.   Jeremiah 29:11NLT 11 For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.   The tumor and challenges of our times cannot alter God’s glorious plans for you. Your future is glorious. God has it all planned out. Why worry about what will become of you? Trust God. Cling to Him. He has the masterpiece of your life, all written in His Word. God has no plan

I Am Redeemed

Isaiah 43:10-11KJV…Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. 11…I, even I, am the Lord: and beside me there is no saviour. 12…I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God.   Isaiah Old Testament Book contains some of the m

The Lost Generation

It has been very difficult for me to see the changes that many churches have initiated, especially as related to the “older” generation.  Those that have been with their local church for decades are seeing a definite change, not only affecting their worship experience but their active participation in church related activities.  There are many issues that need to be addressed, but this article is not so much about the “climate” in the church as it is with the people that are caught up in a time

Historical To Living

One of the challenges of a pastor is to try and get people to move beyond a Scriptural relationship with Jesus to a living encounter with their resurrected Lord.  Christians are presented the “historical” Jesus, through the Gospels, and while this is essential to the foundation of our faith, we need to learn to experience Jesus as our living Lord that sits at the right hand of God, making intercession for His people. (Hebrews 7:25)  Our conversation today is more about what He did, rather than w

Into Our Night

When was the decision to be born amongst men, women, and dear children? Long time ago, Amen!   Th’Almighty saw our plight and so sent forth the Lamb, to come into our night, the King of Kings, Infant.   When did our Creator know he would bear the sin of strong, weak, rich and poor? Before the world, Amen!   No rex or rules which shun could quench the great I Am’s joyful zeal to touch us,  coax all to enter

Good Works

Good works, the act of being still, ever finding strength in God's perpetual will.   Mercy flows from a heart declared. The Voice does not tire, words live through His heirs.   There is a burden, 'twill be confessed, "To do the will of the One Who sent."   Once obeyed, agapé dispensed,^ there, another good work commenced. __________ ^ What does agape love really mean in the Bible?

Prophecy and the On-line Church

Today, there seems to be a great influx of teachings on prophesy and prophetic utterances.  The question begs to be asked whether the reader and student of prophecy are “profiting” spiritually from these endeavors.  Are we growing closer to fulfilling God’s calling for our lives or are we so concerned about what the future holds, that we have lost sight of what God wants to do in the here and now?  Behind the courses in prophesy is the expectation that the Lord will return at any minute.  Interp

Gilded Burdens

Most of us groan when burdens take toll. How to be steady? Be brave, rock ready to soften the load, capacitate goals of others in need, infants to elderly.   Mary thus yielded, first nine months so gilded with wonder and awe of the Child’s sovereign Abba. Then numerous years, foot washings and fears transcended by joy for love of Adonai.


Ragamuffin_John in Poetry


First comes right, then a rite,^ right-of-way to the waters of life, before we descend at Jordan's command* and rise from immersion to light.** Last, was the dark of my past. First, grace from I Am for the grasp. Then, as now, that Jordan bow leads us to the trust that will last. Each rite of passage makes straight + the way of the Lord in our day. The seed planted down rises to crown the soul, feeding hope to obey. __________ ^ John 1:12; 1 John 4:19 * Matthew
