God CAN Manage Your Life

God promised Jacob the birthright and blessing. Then, Esau threatened the fulfillment of this promise. So what did Jacob do? Instead of crying out to God, “I know what you have promised and that you will fulfill it,” he took matters into his own hands. He lied, deceived, and cheated his father and brother. As...

The Pulse of Holy Love

The pulse of holy love produces sweet, joyous, overwhelming enthusiasm for God’s service and intimacy with Jesus. On the other hand, five symptoms mark impending spiritual death. These include leaning towards comfort; a harsh spirit; discouragement; arguing instead of praying; and looking for favorable circumstances instead of stepping out in bold faith. The grace leaking...

Jesus Is Coming Again!

Do you lovingly, longingly wait for the second coming of Jesus? An ardent, focused love for Jesus’ return chills the natural passion for earthly trinkets. When we really want to see Jesus come again, we gladly give everything for the kingdom. Similarly, worldliness will cool off one’s love for Jesus. This results in the 50/50...

Take Time to Wait on God

To wait on God is an art of celestial slowness that consists of thoughtful, exhaustive prayer. The Christian presents the subject in all of its details before the Lord. The whole heart and mind engage in prayer. The Holy Spirit leads the Christian to see the full will of God, and his timing. As a...

Open Wide Your Mouth (2004)

At the cross, Jesus broke the curse of working by the sweat of one’s brow to earn a living. A true Christian doesn’t work for money. The Christian works for Jesus, with a mouth open wide to receive whatever Jesus would give him or her. Would you continue working at your current job even if...

Leaving the Happy Camp

The church as a whole today no longer finds her rest in Jesus, but in the world. In an effort to wake us up, God is pouring out one remedial judgment after another on America. But, the church is so entrenched in her happy camp that she doesn’t recognize God’s judgments. The vast majority of...

“If I Perish, I Perish”

Mordecai warned Queen Esther that if she would not intercede for the Jewish people, God would raise up someone who would. Her response was, “I will fast, pray, and go see the king at the risk of death. And if I perish, I perish.” Her willingness to be an utter failure and die in disgrace...

The Glory of Mother (May 2017)

The glory of a mother is that she never gives up on her kids. Likewise, God will not give up on His church. He predestined a holy people. But, this election is corporate–not individual. Like the children of Israel, we can be called “brethren,” yet reject in unbelief the promises of God for our lives....

The Unseen Danger (2012)

Like the 2012 tsunami in Japan, the judgment of God approaches all mankind. For many, this is an unseen danger. Just as we may say, “Other nations suffer sickness and famine, but America never will,” we can say, “I know others will go to hell, but I won’t.” But, what is our basis for saying...

Walking in Love (2015)

God’s law tells us what we should and shouldn’t do. But by itself, it has no power to subdue the spirit of rebellion that naturally rises in opposition to that law. Christ’s death makes it possible for sin to be condemned instead of us. And, his resurrection opens the way for the Holy Spirit to...
