“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 Several years ago, the Lord highlighted the Hebraic calendar to me. I think the times and seasons of the Lord are very significant for us as His people, and we can learn a lot about what is important to God by studying His calendar and His plan as it is laid out in Scripture. This past year, on Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement), I [...]

As we wrap up this series on faith, I want to share with you the various levels of faith that are demonstrated throughout Scripture.

Supernatural Faith for a Supernatural Year

2017-02-06T09:00:05+00:00

“Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen.” (Hebrews 11:1) Every time a new year comes around, I get excited. I know God has good plans for me and my family…plans to prosper us and not to harm us. (Jeremiah 29:11) This year, as I was listening to what the Lord has in store for me, I heard, "Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you."
