Kingdom Character: Purpose in Suffering

2017-12-18T19:00:53+00:00

To wrap up this series, let’s talk about suffering and why God allows it. Notice that I didn’t say that God causes suffering; He allows it. There is a huge difference. And here’s some good news: there is a purpose in suffering. Here is the main verse that we’ve been studying throughout this series: Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only [...]

5777: The Year of the Sword

2017-02-27T09:00:35+00:00

“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 [...]

5 Levels of Faith

2017-02-20T09:33:47+00:00

As we wrap up this series on faith, I want to share with you the various levels of faith that are demonstrated throughout Scripture. Jesus loves every ounce of faith we have, and he responds to all levels of faith…even the smallest, most meager display of faith. Tenacious faith: The woman with the issue of blood battled the crowd and dared to touch the edge of Jesus’ garment – Jesus’ prayer cloth. The tassels on his prayer cloth represented pomegranates, which are symbolic of the promises of God. She was unclean and would not have been allowed to touch a rabbi [...]

Plan A: Believe God.

2017-02-13T08:00:55+00:00

In my last blog, we took a brief look at supernatural faith and how faith can become a struggle if hope is lost. So, I want you to do something for me. Just try this out and see if it works. The next time you face loss of hope, disappointment, or a testing of your faith, go straight to Plan A: Believe God. Meditate on the Truth First, search the scriptures and find out what God says about your situation and meditate on the truth of His word. The word meditate may sound foreign to you, but believe me, you know [...]

Faith

  If you would prefer to listen to this message...Click here Supernatural Faith “Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen.” (Hebrews 11:1) Are you a person of FAITH? Or do you often struggle with faith? What if you possessed the gift of faith from God ? Not a faith where you simply believe in God, but a faith where you believe what God says is actually TRUE for you! The Lord gives everyone a measure of faith. But there is also the supernatural gift of faith… the faith of God. We can’t talk about [...]

The Holiness Process

2016-05-24T14:56:44+00:00

"The fruit of the Spirit is grown in the soil of adversity." This is what I heard in my spirit as I was studying in Galations 5. In order to grow our character to be more like Christ, we have to embrace the difficult seasons in life and find a new way to respond to them. We cannot respond out of our flesh, our human nature or fallen nature. We must embrace the mind of Christ and use the power of our free will to choose to move in the opposing spirit of what is attacking us in those moments. Instead [...]

When Perception is Everything

2015-02-19T15:41:35+00:00

-: It's February 2015 and 6 months since my first and last blog post. Since relocating my family, life and business, it has been a whirlwind of change to say the least. And although most of the change has been really good, it has still been really hard and at times, very stressful. In general, I personally am usually okay with change. In fact, I like to create change! But I also REALLY like to be in control of it! Like anything in life, however, we are often not in control of the circumstances or the details that can arise. What [...]
