Allow Jesus The Last Word

This short message came today from Walking in Truth Ministry and I could not help but think about all disgruntled and angry Christians who have spent the last five years complaining about our President. Many of them, as has been evident by some of the posts I’ve put up, have allowed their anger and dissatisfaction […]

Daily Fellowship with God

The first and chief need of our Christian life is, Fellowship with God. The Divine life within us comes from God, and is entirely dependent upon Him. As I need every moment afresh the air to breathe, as the sun every moment afresh sends down its light, so it is only in direct living communication […]

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 […]

A Word From Spurgeon

Posted at TeamPyro: Your weekly dose of Spurgeon, A Word to Legalists The following excerpt is from “Strange Dispensations and Matchless Consolations,” a sermon preached in the autumn of 1859 at New Park Street Chapel, Southwark Luke 18:9-14 The reasons for God’s grace to us are far above all human reason, for he himself has […]

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 […]

A Lesson on Mercy from Jonah

A message came to Jonah from the Lord a second time. He said,  “Go to the great city of Nineveh. Announce to its people the message I give you.”   Jonah obeyed the Lord. He went to Nineveh. On the first day, Jonah started into the city. He announced, “In 40 days Nineveh will be […]

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 […]

Can you kneel at the feet of Judas?

We have all been wounded at some time by one who should have only loved us. Every life has a Judas. His name is synonymous with betrayal. The other apostles recorded his damnation with the indelible ink of history. The truth is, Judas was not the only traitor. The friends and family who accompanied Christ […]

Isaiah’s Vision- God’s Holiness

In the Presence of God’s Holiness In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, […]

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: Four Safeguards

From Protection From Deception chapter (3) by Derek Prince No. 1: Humble Ourselves “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” I believe the first essential requirement is that we humble ourselves. The Bible says, God resists the proud. So, if we are trying to come into the presence of God but we […]

The Gift of Desperation

This story of one man’s deliverance from addiction blessed me. Though it wasn’t deliverance from addiction I was seeking but an answer to prayer, I totally understood this man when he said: “God blessed me with the gift of desperation,” Walker said. “At that point, if God had told me I needed to stand on […]

Forgiven souls are humble

“Forgiven souls are humble. They cannot forget that they owe all they have and hope for to free grace, and this keeps them lowly. They are brands plucked from the fire – debtors who could not pay for themselves – captives who must have remained in prison for ever, but for undeserved mercy – wandering […]

Great Damage: The Gift of Discernment Used in the Flesh

“Spiritual discernment is the grace given by God to see into the unseen; it is a gift of the Spirit, given to perceive that which is normally veiled. But to spiritually see that which is veiled we must first have the veil from our own hearts removed. If we do not, we will presume we […]

Effective Prophetic Ministry Through Suffering

This is an excellent teaching by Zac Poonen. While reading I was reminded of the account of Jesus feeding the multitude in Matthew 14:14-21: of his blessing, then breaking the loaves before the disciples passed the pieces out to the multitude. This has always been a clear picture to me of what God has to […]

Are You Willing to be a Servant?

For the past week I’ve been reading Boyd’s The Myth of a Christian Nation, in which he points out that we, as true followers of Christ, should be imitators of our Lord by becoming servants to others. I’ve had it on my mind all week.. Because of that, while browsing online this afternoon the chapter […]

Of Prophecies and Visions..

While reading tonight I found myself thinking about Prophecies and Visions: not of the false kind, of which we hear or read daily coming from every ‘Tom’ Dick’ and Harry’ [and ‘Kim’] or anyone else  who knows how to boot up a computer and hit send-no I mean the real ‘deal’; those which are given […]

Only One True Kingdom

Very good message posted today at Cerulean Sanctum blog: Only One True Kingdom Watch the video clip he was sent in which Julie Meyer ‘prophecies’. Meyer is an associate of Extreme Prophetic’s Patricia King and is tied to the Bob Jones Ministry along with (surprise, surtprise!) The Elijah List. Afterward, be sure and read Dan […]

The ‘ministry’ of Manure

ahaha! I loved this. From an article in The Tennessean: Seeing may not be believing, charismatics told – Magazine editor says Florida scandal is sign of gullibility Quote.. Finto believes that many in the charismatic movement mistake spiritual gifts for spiritual maturity. “There are people who are extremely gifted of God,” he said. “But their […]
