Quote of the Day

And for once, it’s an excellent quote! Rather than delivering a fiery policy speech Friday at the Young America’s Foundation’s National Conservative Student Conference, Timothy Goeglein recalled how pride led to his disgraceful resignation from the President George W. Bush administration. “If anyone here is suffering from pride, you and I were meant to meet […]

The Haughty Heart

“Before destruction the heart of man is haughty.” Proverbs 18:12 It is an old and common saying, that “coming events cast their shadows before them;” the wise man teaches us that a haughty heart is the prophetic prelude of evil. Pride is as safely the sign of destruction as the change of mercury in the weather-glass […]

A Message to His Holy Highness the Worshipful Bishop Rev. Dr. Apostle Grand Poobah

Love it!   From Lee Grady, I am often asked if I have a title, and my answer doesn’t satisfy some people. I travel a lot, so I don’t consider myself a pastor. All kinds of labels have been pinned on me: Reverend, prophet, apostle … even bishop. Once I was introduced to a church as […]

Dying to Self

“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall […]

Oswald Chambers: Faith— Not Emotion

We walk by faith, not by sight —2 Corinthians 5:7 For a while, we are fully aware of God’s concern for us. But then, when God begins to use us in His work, we begin to take on a pitiful look and talk only of our trials and difficulties. And all the while God is […]

The Haughty Heart

“Before destruction the heart of man is haughty.” Proverbs 18:12 It is an old and common saying, that “coming events cast their shadows before them;” the wise man teaches us that a haughty heart is the prophetic prelude of evil. Pride is as safely the sign of destruction as the change of mercury in the […]

Who would ever think that they were so far from God

Tonight while browsing through old posts I came upon one from almost 2 years ago which caught my attention. Perhaps it was meant for me to find it, for a sister in the Lord came by today and the topic of conversation turned to what God had been teaching us recently and it centered around […]

The Small and the Great

….all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” -1 Peter 5:5 Some time ago we heard a short address by a young preacher during which he quoted the following, “If you are too big for a little place, you […]

Shame on you—O silly heart

“What makes you better than anyone else? What do you have—that God hasn’t given you? And if all you have is from God—why boast as though you have accomplished something on your own?” 1 Corinthians 4:7 Christian! By nature—you are no better than others! What would you be without the continual influence of the Spirit? […]

Protection From Deception: From Earthly to Soulish to Demonic

After posting excerpts from Protection From Deception, chapter (3) by Derek Prince last evening, I thought we might look at a few excerpts from: Chapter (2), Earthly, Soulish, Demonic. To receive full understanding of the topic, it would be wise to read it all, but because of space I’ll only post excerpts. I found his […]

What Does Deception Look Like? Part (2)

See:  Part (1) In Part 1 we began with the warning of Jesus concerning spiritual deception, pointing out that the ultimate source of all deception was Satan. Satan, himself deceived, set out to rebel against God, enthrone himself and exercise dominion over all of God’s creation. In one way or another all deception reflects Satan’s […]

More from the Irony front..

National Sins And National Judgments

“For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of his glory. The show of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto […]

‘Forget the mess this Nation’s in, Debate Me!’

Been following the Rush Limbaugh ‘saga’ in the daily news stories posted the last two weeks. What an ego this man has. Again, I thank the Lord for giving me the sense to remove my name from the Republican list of supporters (and voter roll) late last summer. No way would I want to be […]

A Hard, Proud, Hollow Religion

Intimacy with God is the very essence of religion. The understanding of doctrine is one thing, and intimacy with God is another. They  ought always to go together; but they are often  seen asunder; and, when there is the former without the latter, there is a hard, proud, hollow religion. Beware of mere opinions and […]

Deception, Prophecy, Judgment, and Idols

“THEN CAME certain of the elders of Israel to me and sat before me. And the word of the Lord came to me: Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their hearts and put the stumbling block of their iniquity and guilt before their faces; should I permit Myself to be […]

The Danger of Presumption

“It is a well-known fact that circumstances have occurred in which persons of the most bold, intrepid and adventurous minds have proved mere cowards, and acted to their own disgrace and ruin.” – Adam Clarke “No man is master of himself at all times; therefore prudence and caution should ever be united to courage.” – […]
