The Holy Spirit

Common, too common is the sin of forgetting the Holy Spirit. This is folly and ingratitude. They who yield to His influence become good; they who obey His impulses do good, they who live under His power receive good. Let us revere His person; let us hourly seek His aid, and never grieve Him; and […]

J. Lee Grady: To My Fundamentalist Brother John MacArthur: Grace to You Too

Source Fundamentalist pastor John MacArthur is a gifted preacher, author and lover of Scripture. His Grace to You radio program points countless people to the Bible, and his Master’s Seminary trains hundreds of ministry leaders. He’s a staunch Calvinist, but that doesn’t make him any less my brother in Christ. Unfortunately, MacArthur can’t say the same about […]

The State of the Miraculous in a World of Unbelief

Excellent post today from Dan at Cerulean Sanctum blog One of the hallmarks of the final days, as noted by Scripture, is a horrifying level of unbelief. Jesus said it Himself: “Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” —Luke 18:8b ESV The end of all things depicted in the […]

Chuck Smith Jr. and Reaching the Lost and Deceived

While I don’t know precisely what prompted this response by Chuck Smith Jr. the contents are somewhat self-explanatory. Smith’s theology or whether you have a problem with it or him personally, isn’t what I want to concentrate upon in this post. For one thing, though I’m very familiar with Chuck Smith Sr and his ministry, […]

The Most Dangerous Prayer

Good article by a guest columnist at the CP, The Most Dangerous Prayer for Pastors I don’t think you could say more dangerous words than those found in the Lord’s Prayer. I don’t think you could pray a more radical prayer. Probably most of us, even in ministry, would hesitate to say these words if […]

A Lesson From the Lakeland Revival

Tim Challies of Informing the Reforming blog has written a very insightful article. The article is very good as well as many of the comments. A couple of weeks ago I invested an hour and a half in watching Lakeland: The Movie, a documentary about Todd Bentley and the Lakeland “Revival.” You may remember that […]

Justification and Sanctification

and by him every one that believeth is justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses (Acts 13: 39) The believer in Christ receives a present justification. Faith does not produce this fruit by-and-by, but now. So far as justification is the result of faith, it is given to the […]

Open Doors: Growth of Christianity in Iran ‘Explosive’

Despite the Iranian government’s ongoing crackdown of Christians living in the primarily Islamic country, the number of Muslims converting to become Christians is growing at an explosive rate, according to the persecution watchdog group Open Doors USA. There is even talk of witnessing a Christian revival, especially among young people living in the country, say […]

C. H. Spurgeon: Depend On The Holy Spirit

 Evermore, in beginning, in continuing, and in ending any and every good work, consciously and in very truth depend upon the Holy Ghost. Even a sense of your need of Him he must give you; and the prayers with which you entreat Him to come must come from Him. You are engaged in a work […]

The Temple of the Holy Spirit

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” I Corinthians 3:16 O Brother, do believe that you are the temple of the living God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you ! You have been sealed with the Holy Spirit; He is […]

David Wilkerson: 1973 ‘The Vision’

It was in the early 80’s that I purchased and read the small paperback book of the same title. If memory serves me the price was under $5.00. It’s now out of print so used copies (Amazon) are available…but you definitely won’t find one for that price. “The Vision” (David Wilkerson in 1973, Times Square […]

Tens of Thousands of Muslims Coming to Christ

Something to ponder on: Is this wonderful harvest a result of Koran burnings and derogatory, demeaning, and fear based statements about Muslims from so-called Christian leaders appearing in the media and/or “Christian” political activists issuing public statements about bombing Iran? quote… CAPE TOWN, South Africa: Speakers gave hopeful messages of how God is moving and […]

Spiritual Discernment is Lost Until we are Regenerated

The lack of spiritual discernment within the Church is more evident today then at any other season in my lifetime. The magnitude of people who say they are Christians, but for all intents and purposes are spiritually blind, is staggering. In most instances you cannot even discuss spiritual matters with them, for they either look […]

Church History: Spiritual gift of tongues

An interesting companion piece to the post below. By Rev. Mel C. Montgomery A visitor to my website asked me recently to show proof from Early Church records, written by legitimate, orthodox Christian leaders, that speaking in tongues continued after the last apostle died, and to furnish the specific references so that he could look […]

Ezekiel’s Temple and the outflow of living waters (conclusion)

This series has prompted a good discussion so far! I’m studiously reading your comments, and pondering on the many excellent points being offered… Part (1) – Part (2) *Read Acts 2 WHERE DID THE SPIRIT DESCEND AT PENTECOST? For the purpose of a better understanding of the foregoing prophetic vision of Ezekiel, and because, moreover, […]

The Vulnerable Church

Grace to You “This I will say that whatever darkness there may be in a man’s understanding, unless he feels and behaves as a sinner, justly condemned for breaking a righteous law…that is, unless you see in him penitence and brokenness…and unless he expects salvation of mere grace…that is he seems himself as a sinner […]

What Difference Does the Holy Spirit Make?

A. W. Tozer from The Holy Spirit Series “I consider that the chief dangers which confront the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost; Christianity without Christ; forgiveness without repentance; salvation without regeneration; politics without God; and Heaven without Hell.” – William Booth

“We’ve faked the power of Pentecost long enough”

Lee Grady’s written a good commentary this week. Recovering the Axe Head of Genuine Anointing We’ve faked the power of Pentecost long enough. Let’s set aside the imitations and reclaim the real deal. Shortly after Elijah was carried to heaven in his fiery chariot, a group of young prophets asked Elisha to go with them […]

All men can be divided into two groups

Isn’t that a profound statement? – “All men can be divided into two groups” When God look’s upon the 5-6 billion people on this planet this is what He sees–mankind divided into two groups; not 3, 4, or 24, but two. Its we, who seek to divide or classify mankind based on nationality, ethnicity or […]

Gnostic Monica Dennington Refuted

Listening to Monica Dennington is frightening. She needs a lot of prayer. I still cannot grasp how she seemed to fall into this heresy so quickly. Though common sense tells me it wasn’t over-night, but this deception was taking place in her heart and mind, unseen, for awhile. There is a lesson here to be […]

Another ministry in the ditch

In the last few years I’ve posted at least two video’s from Tic-Toc Ministries’ Monica Dennington. Sadly, now it appears this is another ministry which has recently left the path of biblical truth and is teaching heresy. Some of her recent video teachings have brought about a strong reaction from other Christian users at youtube. […]
