The Holy Spirit Will Be in You

God intends for Christians to live in a continual state of consecration, free from legal bondage. This includes continual growth, rejoicing, and love in the Holy Ghost. And, like the widow with a pot of oil, God will multiply everything you give him. Thus, God’s kingdom will advance. When this consecration is made, the Holy...

Escaping Legal Bondage

The Lord delivered a poor widow from financial debt by multiplying her little pot of oil. This story shows the way out of both financial and spiritual debt. God requires us to love him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. To fail to do this is to run up a spiritual debt with...

Specific Prayer

Answers to prayer require a specific prayer. For example, when Jesus asked Bartimaeus what he wanted, the blind man answered, “Lord, that I may receive my sight.” By contrast, Christians often pray vague things like, “Give me more of Jesus.” Or, “Let me have a deeper work of grace.” But what is “more”? What is...

A Pot of Oil

God sent Elijah to a poor, indebted widow. All that she owned was a small pot of oil. So what was God’s plan to get her out of debt? He blessed what she had–that little pot of oil–and made enough of it to fill all the empty vessels that the widow could gather. For us,...

The Fullness of the Beatitudes

The beatitudes outline what happens in a person’s heart in conversion. But the fullness of the beatitudes consists in its application to heart purity. As in conversion, the path to entire sanctification begins with poverty of spirit. You begin to see the disparity between your walk and the apostles’ walk. Every area of your spiritual...

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...

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...
