Isaiah 12:2-6 "Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. And in that day shall ye say, Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. Sing unto the Lord; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all t...Read Full Post »

"Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation" (II Cor. 5:18-19)
I have just had an epiphany after watching a recent Dane Wig...Read Full Post »

Proverbs 1:29 "For they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord."
I found this passage and have received it in my heart with fear and trembling. In brief, I have been desperately asking the Lord certain questions for YEARS, only to have the answer boil down to one word: "CHOICE"!
What were some of those questions? How can professing Christians, believers in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah; continue to enjoy thei...Read Full Post »

John 15:13 "Greater love hath no man than this, That a man lay down his life for his friends."
I chose this passage as the lead off to a statement the Lord gave me about a month ago which is this:
"For many, loyalty only goes as far as its convenience."

John 7:16-17 "My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself."
I thought the Holy Spirit wanted me to read all of John 7 this morning, but I got stuck on these two passages. What a gloriously simple revelation! With child-like faith, we obey God BEFORE w...Read Full Post »

Romans 8:6-7 “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.”
Our fellowship is beginning a study by Andrew Wommack titled “Spirit, Soul & Body”. It has already impacted our perception of who we are IN Christ Jesus, and the relationship betwee...Read Full Post »

I have written about Jehovah Shammah before. It means "God is there; he is with you!" This morning it was impressed heavily upon me to share this awesome name again.
Psalm 23 says in part, "Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death; thou art with me, thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me..."
And yes...if everyone seems to have abandoned you; Jehovah Shammah, God is wit...Read Full Post »

v.1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
v. 2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
v. 3 Though a host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
v. 4 One thing have...Read Full Post »

Romans 14:17-19 "For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. For the one who serves Christ in this way is acceptable to God, AND approved of men. So then, let us pursue the things which make for peace and the building up of one another."
In scripture the title 'kingdom of God' is referenced 76 times. It is of great importance to take note of its significance. Personally, the phrase ...Read Full Post »

John 14:6 "Jesus said to Thomas the Disciple: I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
I have titled this post as such, in an effort to draw attention to the desperate state the world is in. Our ministry is focused on the Great Commission, through the giving of food, clothes, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. So just HOW is the ministry of Jesus accomplished? Only by LOVE! It was, and still is, God's love that enables us to be forg...Read Full Post »
