Consuming Fire

“God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:24 As we see in Genesis 22:4, along with the wood, Abraham also brought with him fire. A burnt offering could have never been possible without it, and throughout scripture fire is synonymous with the Holy Spirit. It was on the Day of Pentecost that the Holy Spirit was poured out like fire on mankind as they praised and worshiped Him with all their might. Just as it’s impossible to have a burnt offering without fire, so it is impossible to have true worship without[…]

Bring The Knife

“For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 (AMP) One of the things I love about watching a cooking show is seeing how skillfully the chef handles the knife. They make it look so easy the way they[…]

Divine Provision

”So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided.” Genesis 22:14 On the way up the mountain, when asked by Isaac where was the sacrifice Abraham replied, not knowing how prophetic this statement would be, “God will provide Himself a Lamb.” As Abraham lifted up the knife to thrust it in the chest of Isaac the Angel of the Lord abruptly stopped him. Abraham was not playing and this was no half hatred attempt on his part to sacrifice his son. I’m sure[…]

The True Key To Success

“The LORD was with Joseph, and he was a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.” Genesis 39:2 Does seventeen, scared, stripped, shackled, mocked, abused, thrown in a situation and country where you know no one or their language, and are auctioned off by the slave traders, sound like the picture of success to you? Well, it certainly doesn’t to me, at least not in the natural, but that’s exactly how Joseph is described in Genesis 39:2, as a “successful man.” This kind of changes the whole paradigm of success, doesn’t it? It’s certainly[…]

“Any Thing”

Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 18:19 It would be real easy to just say the final component to the “Armor of God” is prayer and just close the book on Ephesians. But Paul instructs us in Ephesians 6:18 to pray with “all prayer” and in the original Greek language that the New Testament was written in which means “all manner of”-as in “all manner or types of prayer.” Praying[…]

Heavenly Withdrawal

“And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 (Amplified Bible) Every time you go into your bank to make a withdrawal, there are two things you absolutely must have. First, you need a withdrawal slip and second, you need the money in your account to draw from. In Philippians 4:17, the Apostle Paul talks about us having a Heavenly account, “Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.” Just two verses later in that same chapter,[…]

The Solution

“To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:27 The days of strong armed sales tactics are over. People have grown weary from any attempt to force them into making a purchase. This push back has brought about a lot of change in the world of sales and marketing. Companies today, are finding much more success in the softer approach of “Solution Selling.” Even in the Church world, there has been a realization that the old ways of[…]

Smooth Grace

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 Most likely you have heard about or seen the movie “Facing the Giants” that was released back in 2006 and produced by Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, GA. What most likely made this low budget film so popular, was its story of how everyday people overcame insurmountable opposition and struggle by putting their complete trust in God. Among the[…]

Victories Remembered

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith.” 1 John 5:4 I’ll never forget as a young Marine when I really learned for the first time what battle streamers represented. It was at a Change of Command Ceremony when I noticed these brightly, multi-colored, ribbons hanging down from the Marine Corps flag and the announcer told what each one stood for. Each streamer represented previous battles and wars that Marines had so valiantly fought and been victorious throughout their history. In 1 Samuel Chapter 21, David finds himself[…]
