Warring With The Word Of God

There are confirming forces at work for us (the Lord Jesus who prays for us and the angels who minister to and for us) and there are opposing forces (the devil and his co-horts) at work against us.  There's the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness...

The Gifting And Talents of God

Do you know that God has given us all a measure of faith, and talents?

Remember, Jesus said to his disciples, ‘all you need is a mustard seed measure of faith.’ Then you can say to the mountain, ‘be thou removed and cast into the sea, and it shall obey you.’

The Lord has given us a measure of talents, as well. Now the question is, how much of it are you using for the kingdom of God. In faith he has given us all a measure. It’s left up to us how much of it we activate in our life, to bring forth fruit for his glory...

The Praying Warrior And The Battle At Ziklag

They arrived at camp and found everyone gone. Not a soul was left in the camp. It was obvious they were taken by force. The camp was a wreck and burned to the ground. The men began to weep, including David. All of his wives and his men’s wives and family were taken by the enemy, the Amalekites...

Why So Militant

David fought so many wars. He wasn't able to build the Temple, at least one of the reasons was, the Lord said he was a bloody man! So, his son was given the assignment, Solomon. Solomon’s generation had not experienced the awfulness of war. Their responsibility would be not losing the glory of God in a season of convenience, peace and pleasure.

Passing The Baton

Have you seen a race where they pass the baton, one to another, recently? It truly amazes me to see how our little child hood games can speak to us in life, if we allow it to. In this race of passing the baton, the main objective is the team with the baton to cross the finish line with the help of each other. The one who crosses the finish line first with the baton wins. Another thing to realize, is the greatest opportunity for mishap is during the pass. It takes skill, focus and determination to successfully pass to the receiver.

Now what does that symbolize spiritually to you and me. The word of God tells us to run the race with all diligence, being prepared in all diligence. What’s symbolic of it, is a race that’s not run by ourselves, it includes others, so not only our generation but the ones to come...

What Do I Do If My Authority Is Just Wrong

Now the famine was severe in Samaria and Ahab had summoned Obadiah, his palace administrator. Obadiah was a devout believer in the Lord. While Jezebel was killing off the Lord’s prophets, Obadiah had taken a hundred prophets and hidden them in two caves, fifty in each, and had supplied them with food and water...

The Armorbearer Stigmata

Years ago, a young lady wrote in to our ministry expressing her reservations about accepting the call to become an armorbearer for her pastors. Here’s an excerpt from that FAQ session:

“…It's not that I mind helping out with anything that's needed of me.  Whatever is asked of me, I will do without hesitation.  The biggest problem is that I don't want to be called "armorbearer".  I hesitate to use the term, whether or not I'm around anyone.  I don't want it known, I don't want it broadcast, and I don't want any recognition for what I do; unless it's from God to tell me what I'm doing right or wrong…”

Go Get My Chariots Horses And Start Me A Parade

God promised to make one of King David’s sons the next king. It was a God promise through a faithful father. Even so, there was a small problem brewing on the horizon. The Bible said the son Adonijah was never interfered with by his father. He never heard the word no from him or anyone else. The Proverbial writer plainly says a child left to himself is headed for ruin. So, I have empathy for the young man I’m about to tell you about...

The Rules Of Life And Death Are In Your Words

I call heaven and earth to record this day, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your children may live —Deuteronomy 30:19 para.

How many times have we said, it was just words? ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.’ It's just not true. I heard the same child's chant growing up. I even tried to repeat it to myself when someone said something mean that really hurt. Especially, when I didn't want it to. And I wanted even less to show it...

Touch Not Gods Anointed Leadership

More than a couple of times, King Saul tried to pin David to the wall with his spear but David eluded him. David served a king with serious issues. He wasn’t just someone that he would see every now and then. He lived in the same house with his king...
