Days Of Lot


A years ago, I was having lunch with a good friend of mine.  I was speaking to him about sin.  I was telling him how as Christians we must do all we can to avoid sin.  As I was talking, our waitress entered the conversation.  She told me that her mother used to talk about not sinning, but she didn’t see the big deal.  I looked her in the eyes and told her sin is a [...]

Process of Spiritual Maturity


I have seen a trend of people who profess to have been Christians for a long time, but are not very mature spiritually.   Some of these people are the most difficult to minister to, because they equate spiritual maturity to time, rather than development.   I absolutely believe that God takes time to develop people, but time itself is not the only factor in determining where someone is in their spiritual walk. On the other side of [...]

Are You Ready For Battle?


Being Ready For Battle A few years ago I visited the assisted living home for the elderly for weekly bible study.  I expected this week to be as usual….We sit and talk about God and his wonderful blessings.  We laugh, we discuss, we pray for the sick and troubled.  It is always a warm and cozy place to minister the gospel.  As I walked around greeting everyone, I spotted a new attendant for the bible study.  [...]

Carrying The Weight Of Your Assignment


When I first felt the call of God, I ran out and tried to make every vision, every idea, every word given a reality in my life. I was so excited for what God had called me to do. I wanted it all to happen in a matter of days or weeks. Since the visions were so clear and the final result so certain, I knew that if I could just put a little push behind [...]

False Prophecy


Several years ago I was at a prophetic conference.  I was invited by a friend and had never attend a conference of this sort before.  I had just started my church and was trying to met other people that were ministers and had churches.    During the service, I noticed that the style of worship was a little different, but I thought that maybe it was just the culture or tradition.  At the end of the service.  [...]

10 Characteristics Of God’s Champions


There are certain things that you can find in the true sons and daughters of God.  This is list is not exhaustive but gives some insight into the righteous character of God's leaders. Humble- James 4:6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

Embracing The Armor Of God


“Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6: 11-12. As a Christian we must embrace the battle that rages in the realm of the spirit. We being mind, body, and spirit must always first trust our [...]

Casting Down Imaginations


How many times have we as humans been accused of saying or doing something we didn’t do? How many times have we done something for one reason and it was understood in another negative way? The communicator becomes agitated because they have mistakenly offended someone . The offended person gathers more negative thoughts of the person who made the offensive comments. To the individuals the problem is real, but in actuality it is just an imagination. [...]

Separating The Wheat And The Tares


When I finally came to the decision to commit myself to God, my lifestyle became one of prayer and focus on the things of God.  I would pray well into the night and I spent my days looking forward to going home and having  that intimate prayer time.  During this time in my life I was a little short on money so I rented a room downstairs to a guy I met through a friend.  Within [...]

Where are my God made millionaires?


Where are my God made millionaires? As I sat in church, I heard the preacher say….”where are my God made millionaires ”.   I looked around and many people were shouting in excitement.  At the time I was relatively new to Jesus, but something didn’t seem quite right.  Something was out of place.  It seemed fantastic that God might be able to get me all the riches and materials things that I could ever want, and all [...]
