WHO IS THE BOOGIE MAN? OR WHERE TO FOCUS

Our world is unraveling at the seams. So many people are angry at this or rioting about that. And if you watch the news, there is an "enemy" being born almost every moment.  One political group vs another, one color vs another, one culture vs another, one denomination...

CELEBRATING THE REST OF THE STORY

One thing we humans like to do is celebrate.  We celebrate birthdays, Christmas', and anniversaries.  These events most often just come around once a year.  But there is a gift the Creator has given us that we can celebrate on a weekly basis.  This gift is quality...

WHEN GOD USES FORCE

"Christ does not use force or compulsion in drawing people to Him." we're told in Christ Triumphant 245.4. That certainly makes sense. After all, it was Jesus who said, "love your enemies ...." This sentiment is important at every level of our lives, even child...

THE PROMISED RAIN

There will be no Latter Rain, and no revival without the Holy Spirit.  And there will be no outpouring of the Holy Spirit if we don't cooperate with the conditions God has clearly laid out. Those conditions were the focal point of my sermon March 6, 2021, The...
