For Christ’s sake, the sake of others, and your own, have a vision

Having visions from Jehovah God is paramount to an individual's spiritual well-being and to a community's well-being also. By "visions," I mean something genuine that goes beyond fake stuff in some Christian circles such as Benny Hinn causing whole groups of people to fall out while at the foot of his stage. Proverbs 29:15 states,… Continue reading For Christ’s sake, the sake of others, and your own, have a vision

How and why God outlawed mob rule and evil quid pro quo

When God called Israel out of Egypt, his goal was to establish a godly, lawful society that would prosper and be different than the idolatrous, lawless societies that were predominant in that day--the same reasons the church is called out of the world today. Their lawlessness and idolatry went hand-in-hand and served only to weaken… Continue reading How and why God outlawed mob rule and evil quid pro quo

The type of fasting that gets God’s attention

Fasting is a powerful spiritual tool that God has given us to use to make a difference in this dark world. It is so powerful that when it's used alongside prayer, evil spirits can be sent fleeing (Mark 9:17-29). On the other hand, in order for it to be effective, when we use it we… Continue reading The type of fasting that gets God’s attention

God is our captain: how an outnumbered army claimed victory

Abijah, the son of evil king Rehoboam of Judah, turned out to be godly despite growing up in the shadow of his evil father. His name even reflects the boldness he had in the Lord since "Abijah" means "Jehovah is my father." One day, king Abijah had to face the northern kingdom of Israel in… Continue reading God is our captain: how an outnumbered army claimed victory

Having an onward, upward focus in God’s light

I have to admit that for me, trusting others is not something that comes easily, especially when it comes to who I look to for spiritual, moral, or ethical guidance. I believe since we live in a period of great apostasy in Christendom, it pays to have a healthy dose of spiritual skepticism along with… Continue reading Having an onward, upward focus in God’s light

Godly wisdom is readily available, not readily accepted

Did you know that godly wisdom is not difficult to find? As a matter of fact, the Lord himself has let us know over and over in his word that all we need to do to get it is to humbly seek him then ask him for it, and by his grace it will be… Continue reading Godly wisdom is readily available, not readily accepted

Faithful and godly confidence to the end

The prophet Elisha had a lengthy ministry that brought forth many unforgettable, mighty acts on God's behalf.

4 examples of great works for God bringing great devilish opposition

Scripture time and again reminds us believers that when God saved us, he essentially hired us to work for him, even if our work(s) may be considered insignificant. Paul pointed out several times that members seen as small and insignificant should never be despised and dismissed by other members (see 1 Cor. 6:4; 12:14-23) since their… Continue reading 4 examples of great works for God bringing great devilish opposition

6 Biblical examples where desperate times required saints’ unusual, godly methods

I was told once by a church member (paraphrased), "God won't bless your ministry unless you submit your ministry to the pastor, because people who don't submit are usually caught up in pride. If you won't submit to a pastor, why would you expect anyone to submit to you in your ministry?" He was under… Continue reading 6 Biblical examples where desperate times required saints’ unusual, godly methods
