    ARE YOU WILLING TO GO DEEPER?

    1 Corinthians 2:6-16 MSG “We, of course, have plenty of wisdom to pass on to you once you get your feet on firm spiritual ground, but it’s not popular wisdom, the fashionable wisdom of high-priced experts that will be out-of-date in a year or so. God’s wisdom is something mysterious that goes deep into the interior of His purposes. You don’t find it lying around on the surface. It’s not the latest message, but more like the oldest—what God determined as the way to bring out His best in us, long before we ever arrived on the scene. The experts of our day haven’t a clue about what this eternal…

    HAVE YOU HAD A GOD ENCOUNTER?

    I am noticing a trend lately. People claiming to have been Christians who are now walking back their belief. Announcing to the world that they no longer believe in God. Trying to convince the unsuspecting that they once had a relationship with Jesus. I must admit that it’s easy to walk away from religion, but not so much when you’ve had a “God Encounter.” The Psalmist David wrote. “I’ve tasted and seen that the Lord is good.” Psalm 34:8 Job wrote after his encounter: “Job answered GOD: “I’m convinced: You can do anything and everything. Nothing and no one can upset your plans. You asked, ‘Who is this muddying the…

    GOD’S GOT YOUR BACK

    “Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. After conferring with his officers, he said, “I will set up my camp in such and such a place.” The man of God sent word to the king of Israel: Beware of passing that place, because the Arameans are going down there.” So the king of Israel checked on the place indicated by the man of God. Time and time again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard in such places. This enraged the king of Aram. He summoned his officers and demanded of them. “Tell me! Which of us is on the side of the…

    WHY DON’T YOU TELL THE TRUTH?

    Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as He was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. BUT the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” He answered, I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.” Genesis 3:8-10 There are so many ways I could go with these verses so I have to quiet my spirit and wait for my Teacher. The question The All Knowing God was asking had nothing to do with their location, but…

    FAITH YOUR FEARS-PART 2

    1 Kings 19:1-2. Now Ahab told Jezebel everything Elijah had done and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. So Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah to say,” May the gods deal with me, be it ever so severely, if by this time tomorrow I do not make your life like one of them.” Elijah was afraid and ran for his life.  1 Kings 19: 3a In Elijah’s account, he had wrought a great victory. Bringing the hearts of Gods people back from Baal worship to once again acknowledging the One true God. But his victory was not met with a ticker tape parade, but a threat…

    FAITH YOUR FEAR – PART 1

    The Lord was with Jehoshaphat because he followed the ways of his father (great great great grandfather) David before him. His heart was devoted to the ways of the Lord. They taught throughout Judah, taking with them the Book of the Law of the Lord; they went around to all the towns of Judah and taught the people. The fear of the Lord fell on all the kingdoms of the lands surrounding Judah, so that they did not go to war against Jehoshaphat.  2 Chronicles 17:3,6,9,10.   2 Chronicles 20:1,3,14,15.  After this, the Moabites and Ammonites with some  of the Menunites came to wage war against Jehoshaphat. And Jehoshaphat feared, (resolved)to…

    YES LORD!!

    The word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai: “ Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness  has come up before Me.” But Jonah ran away from the Lord and headed for Tarshish.  He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the Lord.  Jonah 1:1-3 I’m dating myself. But do some of you remember the television show The Fugitive? That man was constantly on the run. He had no home, no rest and definitely no lasting friendships. You can’t have a…

    CURIOUS??

    When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to Him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!” And Moses said “here I am.” Exodus 3:4       Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord: The Word of the Lord had not been revealed to him. A third time the Lord called, “Samuel!” The Lord came and stood there, calling as at the other times, “Samuel! Samuel!” 1 Samuel 3:7,8,10    He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me?” Acts 9:4 Whenever your mother calls your name once you feel safe, but whenever she calls it twice, something…

    SAY WHAT?

    That night God appeared to Solomon and said to Him, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.” Solomon answered God, “You have shown great kindness to David my father and have made me king in his place.  Now, Lord God, let your promises to my father David be confirmed, for you have made me king over a people who are as numerous as the dust of the earth. Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?” God said to Solomon, “Since this is your heart’s desire and you have not asked for wealth, possessions…

    CALLED TO BELONG…GOD’S VIP’S

    And you also are among those Gentiles who are called to belong to Jesus Christ. Romans 1:6 “I AM the good Shepherd; I know My sheep and my sheep know me-just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father-and I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep (us Gentiles) that are not of this sheep fold. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be ONE  flock and ONE Shepherd. (Jew and Gentiles, non Jews) John 10:14-16 But now this is what the Lord says-He who created you, Jacob (insert your name), He who formed you, Israel:…
