    Just Human

    He came to her and said, “And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.   And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, ….   And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. Mary was just a regular human being. She wasn’t full of grace; ...
     

    Clever Excuses

    Sun, Dec 3, 2017
    For the church to be the church, she must not only be a praying church and a worshipping church, but the church must also be missional. Yes, we desire all desire to see a restoration of Godly principles and morals. However, this is totally dependent on the church fulfilling it’s mission. Our mission is “Go ye into ...
     

    Just an Observer

    Tue, Nov 14, 2017
    People seemed to follow Jesus wherever He went – to towns and villages, hills and mountainsides, streets and synagogues. Perhaps most went after Him to see the miracles and healings. Many might have been curious about his teachings. Despite the multitudes that pursued him daily, very few followers made the commitment to go with Jesus. Only a handful of disciples decided ...
     

    Thanks

    Sun, Nov 5, 2017
    In November we focus on being thankful. In the classic autobiography, The Hiding Place, Corrie ten Boom tells of her sufferings at the hands of the Nazis during the evil reign of Adolph Hitler. Corrie and her sister, Betsie, were incarcerated at the Nazi concentration camp, Ravensbruck, and experienced terrible atrocities there. On one occasion, they were forced to ...
     

    Outfitters

    Sun, Oct 22, 2017
    The other day, I was doing some online shopping.  You never know where that will bring you, however, I came across a number of businesses with names like, “Urban Outfitters”, “Outdoor Outfitters”, “Swimming Outfitters”, “Diving Outfitters”, and so on. It made me think. Ephesians 1:11 (KJV)  11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who ...
     

    “I’ve heard that before”

    Fri, Oct 13, 2017
    There have been times when people have responded to sermons of faith and revival with, “I’ve heard that before”.   As if, hearing one message or many messages changes the fact that revival is in the heart of God.  Revival is not only in the heart of God, it is part of the endtime. I believe that a prerequisite for Apostolic Revival ...
     

    Headlights

    Sat, Oct 7, 2017
    I’ve always thought that I could get through just about anything if the Lord would tell me what was going to do. I absolutely believe that “all things work together for good” in the end (Rom. 8:28), but I’d do a lot better in dark times if I knew exactly what the “good” would look like. But God usually doesn’t show ...
     

    These

    Thu, Oct 5, 2017
    John 21:15 (KJV)  So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? ….. There comes a time in everyone’s life when a decision must be made. Jesus asks us the same question He asked Peter. He says to us, “Do you love Me more than these?” When times are going well, when things ...
     

    Hurricanes, Floods, and Earthquakes

    Sun, Sep 10, 2017
    The last few weeks, newspaper headlines have been limited to the news of hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes.  Thousands upon thousands of people have been displaced, lost their homes, or somehow been affected by the storms.  Each of the hurricanes came with warning.  People were told to get ready.  For some this meant, milk, bread, toilet paper.  For others, their response ...
     

    Promises

    Sat, Sep 2, 2017
    It would be safe to say that most of us have made promises.  And I’m sure that promises have been made to you.  Some have been kept, and some haven’t. There are man’s promises . . . and then there are God’s promises. God does not forget what He promised. He never changes His mind. He will not go back on ...
