How Then Should We Live Today? Pt. 2

As believers, we need to understand what our mindset and lifestyle should be in these turbulent times. What does God require of His people particularly during times of upheaval, opposition, oppression and persecution. He requires His people to remain steadfast! This word brings to mind a calm assurance, an unwavering faith, and unchanging character in times of trouble. 1 Corinthians…

How Then Should We Live Today?

As I was ministering earlier this week (see video @goingbeyondchurch),  I kept stressing that as Christians we should know how to position ourselves during this critical time in our nation. The church has become to complacent. To comfortable with the status quo. The Lord is calling His church to awaken from its slumber. It is crucial that the church understands…

Building On A Solid Foundation Series: Wise Or Foolish Builders (Pt 4)

“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29 for our “God is a consuming fire.” (Hebrews 12:28-29)  Jesus said in Matthew 24:14, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the…

Obeying Christ In Contemporary American Culture Part 3

”Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.” (Romans 12:2 TPT) I didn’t watch the Super Bowl this year nor did I…

“The Mouth Of The Lord Has Spoken”

“And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.” Isaiah 40:5 God is a God Who Speaks There are many ways in which the Lord speaks. He speaks through His messengers, His World, a still small voice, and through the Holy Spirit. The Lord has…

Restoring Righteousness – Part 3

The need for prophesy is precisely expressed in Proverbs 29:18. Prophets enable others to envision life more in conformity with God’s own vision of a just society. Where there is no vision [no revelation of God and His word], the people are unrestrained; But happy and blessed is he who keeps the law [of God]. Proverbs 29:18 During the Old Testament period, God’s…

Spirit of Lawlessness

For the law was not intended for people who do what is right. It is for people who are lawless and rebellious, who are ungodly and sinful, who consider nothing sacred and defile what is holy, who kill their father or mother or commit other murders. The law is for people who are sexually immoral, or who practice homosexuality, or…

God Is Sovereign Over All Things

Remember the old days. For I am God; there is no other. I am God; there are no other gods like Me. From the beginning I declare how things will end; from times long past, I tell what is yet to be, saying: “My intentions will come to pass. I will make things happen as I determine they should.” Isaiah 46:9-10 Voice God is holy,…

Restoring Righteousness – Part 2

As I started writing this post this morning it took a slight turn from my original writing.  ”Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21). Many prophetic words are being released regarding the restoration of righteousness in the earth. As I mentioned in Part 1, tsedakah (tsedek) is rendered as…
