Kingdom Or Chaos?

If there's one thing that I'm thoroughly convinced is lacking in the Church today, it's boundaries. God's laws, parameters and requirements have been lost in the reckless pursuit of "Freedom in Christ". Today, we'll use a simple, natural event as a metaphor to help us gain some clarity.

The Voice Of Prophecy

The oracles of God are being declared to men today, as they have always been throughout the ages. Who will position themselves to be the ones to hear, listen and then declare it upon the earth? Yes, it's been mishandled. Yes, it's been misused. However, this in no way changes it's purpose and necessity within the Church.

Coming To The Surface

Self-defense, self-preservation, making it clear how spiritual you are. Have you ever been guilty of such activity in your life? I have. It reveals an identity that is off and not properly established. Today I share some thoughts on what we can do about it, based upon some "now" moments in my life.

If He Be Lifted Up

Admittedly, I ramble on for a while in this one but I do eventually land somewhere. John 12:32 to be specific. Yeshua stated that "if He be lifted up, He will draw all men unto Himself". There is alot in this, for then and for today.

The Life Of Presentation

I would say it's time for mature followers of Yeshua (Jesus) to become initiators in regards to presenting all of themselves to the LORD, as opposed to remaining mere "responders" to what is asked/required. A truly sacrificial life is in constant yielding, looking for ways to present oneself to the Father, entirely emptied.

When The Blood Of Jesus Isn’t Enough

So, does this episode title grab your attention? I hope that it does. There is some scriptural understanding that we must give ourselves to in order to be rightly empowered in this age and the age to come. I would say, without question, the modern day Church is lacking power and I believe within this episode is examining one reason why.

The Olam (Ancient Boundary)

Proverbs chapter 22 tells us  "do not move the ancient boundary (Olam) that [our] fathers have set". In this episode I briefly touch on how we must return to this principle. There was something perpetual that was established that we must return and reinstate.

Functions Within The Church: In Humble Confidence

We move away from the holiday confrontation discussion and have a bit more lighthearted episode today. Today I topically share my present moment thoughts towards taking our proper place within the corporate Body of Christ. It's time for mature spiritual men to rightly walk into their functions.

Part 4: Confronting Christmas: The Spiritual Man Perspective

The series concludes today. If you made it all the way to the end, good for you! This episode looks into some scriptural patterns that assist us in rightly examining the holidays of men. Until we're, at the very least, willing to abandon all that we give ourselves to, we will never walk into the fullness of all that God has for us.

Part 3: Confronting Christmas: The Spiritual Man Perspective

This short series continues with some more tough questions and a challenge for whoever is willing to examine the origins and traditions of "Christian" celebrations.

Part 2: Confronting Christmas: The Spiritual Man Perspective

We continue to examine our hearts willingness to face and examine, in humility, every single thing that we give ourselves to. In this case, the Christmas holiday. We must discuss how this carnal, athiestic nation celebrates this holiday without issue, right beside the Church, with no reference to Christ, yet it continues on entirely unfazed.

Part 1: Confronting Christmas: The Spiritual Man Perspective

I would say that your first knee-jerk response to the title of this new series may very likely reveal your willingness to question the holidays and celebrations of our age. This three-part series will ask some very tough questions. Many that will hopefully solidify your unwavering commitment to Yahweh God and help you become absolutely devoted to give yourself to what is pleasing to Him alone, despite the personal cost.

Part 3/Conclusion: Distant Flattering Lips Or Close And Contrite Hearts

This episode concludes the discussion of how, in order to be found acceptable to the Lord, we must respond to the call to lay aside all that we are and know. The Scriptures make it clear that until one follows in the pattern of the Son, free from offense, we will literally be repelled by what we see in Him.

Part 2: Distant Flattering Lips Or Close And Contrite Hearts

In this installment of the series, we look at what we (and all of humanity) must do when we look upon Yeshua (Jesus) and find Him to be an offense - a stumbling block. We also examine Luke 12 which tells us that Messiah came for the insufficient "sick/needy" ones.

Part 1: Distant Flattering Lips Or Close And Contrite Hearts

In this new three-part series we'll look at the scriptural basis for the importance of being sure we're not distant from God, found with only flattering lips. The sign of one who is near to Him is one who is willing to be broken and repentant and is therefore welcomed to draw near.

Being Spiritual Vs. Being In The Name

The line between those who worship and proclaim the name of Yeshua (Jesus) and those who are simply "spiritual" is becoming more and more indistinguishable. In this episode, I examine some thoughts on the matter and concerns that we should have.

Burden Or Blessing?

I would say that the choice is always before us of being and looking unto matters of life as always either burden or blessing. Vantage point and our hearts posture toward whatever comes will determine how we feel, how we respond and who we become.

Part 6/Conclusion: The Power Of Preparation

The series wraps up today. Primarily because it's just too much to discuss in one series alone. This episode briefly looks at David's preparations to build the temple, but then instead hands it to his son to fulfill at the end of his life. I think we underestimate the power within preparing for what lies ahead. May this series challenge us to change that.

Part 5: The Power Of Preparation

The series moves on as we examine the incredible fact that Yeshua left "in order to prepare a place for [those would become His disciples]." He is in the preparation business and we should be too, in response to His action on our behalf.
