Spiritual Warmup

I’m preparing for a new breakthrough in Spirit led prayer. Since the natural comes before the spiritual, (1 Cor. 15:46), some natural warm up might be appropriate. We might greet, then stretch, move about, brief minor calisthenics of the body, work out any stiffness, get flexible, prepare for action. Then, for stretching of the mind […]

Kingdom Assignments

Everyone has a different calling and purpose in God’s Kingdom.  Though there may be many ministers or teachers or worship leaders, they are each different.  Moreover, there are tasks that God assigns that we might never consider an actual calling of God.  For example, there are those who watch, wait, and worship.  God’s society is […]

The Sacrifice of Fools

“Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.  Be not be rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is […]

All You Have

Most of us are surrounded with things we want and need, yet things needed are really very few.  Still, we are ever looking for more, newer, the latest fashion, new technology.  There is nothing inherently wrong with seeking improved or new things, as necessary, but there is great distraction in our misdirected  desires and wishes […]

A Song From God

I asked God to give me a song with which to praise Him. I wanted it to be deep and significant, rather than fluff. I realize I’m not a musician, but I have a love for music, worship, and God is not limited in His ability to give me a song for His glory. I […]

Worship He Deserves

The heavenly beings surround God’s throne and worship Him with the highest of praises, bowing in surrender before Him. (Rev. 4: 4-11).  Yeshua, the Son of Man and only human to know God fully said that He seeks worshipers who worship Him in Spirit and truth. (John 4: 23).  It is fitting that men worship […]

Yeshua’s Mission In A Few Words

  To describe completely all that Messiah Yeshua (Christ Jesus Hebrew name) accomplished, did, was, and is would take more books than the whole world could contain. (John 21:25).  However, Isaiah offers a very encouraging description of it in a few verses;  “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed […]

Two Responses to Yeshua

“Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed.  ‘Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?’ they asked.  ‘Isn’t this the carpenter’s son?  Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas?  Aren’t all his sisters with us?  Where […]

Jim and Casper Go To Church

“Most christians have been immersed in church culture for so long that they have no idea how non-Christian guests might interpret what they see and hear at a worship service, or what might inspire them to come back.”  Is the Christian worship service for God’s pleasure or a sales meeting? Are Christians to conform to […]
