PROMISE OF PROTECTION

“The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;     my God is my rock, in whom I find protection.” Psalm 18:2  They say that a mama bear with small cubs is something you don’t want to mess with. A North Carolina family discovered this as they let their two dogs out to potty late one afternoon. Backyard video cameras captured the footage of their dogs spotting a mamma black bear in their backyard and giving chase.  While the two cubs climbed up a tree, the mama bear went into attack mode and ran the dogs off without injury. Black bears, not[…]

THE TURNAROUND

 “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   From the rebuke of his father, the hatred of his brothers, the false accusations from Potiphar’s wife, and prison; Joseph’s life looked like a complete mess. It was not at all like he had thought things were going to work out for him based on the dreams he had. Two dreams, back to back, led him to believe that there was greatness in his future, but instead he was experiencing the worst kind of failure. But,[…]

GOOD FRUIT

“A tree is identified by its fruit. If a tree is good, its fruit will be good. If a tree is bad, its fruit will be bad. Matthew 12:33  Bill and Bette had no idea what the little farm they had just purchased would one day become. The year was 1953 and the young couple couldn’t wait to start planting sweet corn in the fertile soil of Southern New Jersey. Bill started selling that corn from the back of a wagon, and as the family grew, so did the farm.  From corn to apple trees, peach trees, cherry trees, blueberries[…]

HOLD OUT

“Then he said to the man, “Hold out your hand.” So, the man held out his hand, and it was restored, just like the other one!”  Matthew 12:13 All eyes were on Jesus, but not all were looking to see what great thing He might do next. There were skeptics in the crowd who wanted to do nothing but catch Jesus in a trap. They weren’t interested in anyone being healed, they just wanted to protect their religious traditions. For the man needing to be healed, he was faced with a choice. As Jesus called him to the front of the synagogue,[…]

YOUR SOZO STORY

“But Jesus said, ‘No, go home to your family, and tell them everything the Lord has done for you and how merciful he has been’.”  Mark 5:19 Mark chapter five tells the story of three different people with four different needs. The man from the region of Gerasenes had been bound and tormented by a legion of demons for years. He was undoubtedly the worst possible case around and no one could do a thing for him. That was until Jesus stepped onto the shore and brought instant deliverance to this man, forever changing his life. This man encountered the pure[…]

A CLEAR PICTURE OF SOZO

“Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness. Let the whole world know what he has done.”  Psalm 105:1 I have to admit the struggle was real. Because I had never heard the word, “Sozo,” before, my first thoughts were, “This couldn’t possibly be true.” Surely having grown up in church my whole life someone; some pastor, some Sunday School teacher, some deacon, someone would have told me the complete meaning of what it means to be saved. Even today, as passionate as I am about the full gospel and message of Sozo Salvation, it perplexes me when I share this message[…]

A GOOD NEWS BYPRODUCT

“Jesus traveled through all the towns and villages of that area, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And he healed every kind of disease and illness.” Matthew 9:35 According to Wikipedia, “A by-product, or byproduct, is a secondary product derived from a manufacturing process or chemical reaction. It is not the primary product or service being produced.” Listverse.com sights, “Cow intestines led a pretty depressing existence prior to the nineteenth century. Their taste was overshadowed by the rest of the delicious parts of the cow and their utility was overshadowed by the versatility of pig and[…]

DELIBERATLY

But as for me, I trust in You, O LORD, I say, “You are my God.” Psalm 31:14 Mathew, Mark, and Luke all record the amazing story of a woman who had “specific kind of faith.” She needed healing because she had been sick for twelve years and not a single doctor could help her find the cure, which had made her completely bankrupt. She had heard that Jesus of Nazareth would be passing through her town and His reputation as a “Healer” preceded Him, so her faith rose and became strong. And, as faith often does, it speaks. She[…]

THANKSGIVING VERSES

Ezra 3:11 “With praise and thanksgiving they sang to the Lord: “He is good; his love toward Israel endures forever.” And all the people gave a great shout of praise to the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.”   Psalm 7:17 “I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness; I will sing the praises of the name of the Lord Most High.”   Psalm 9:1 “I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.”   Psalm 35:18 “I will give you[…]

MERCY AND GRACE

You have done many good things for me, Lord, just as you promised. Psalm 119:65 In 2 Samuel 11-12, we see that David committed the two “biggies.” Not only did he commit adultery, which is pretty bad, but he also committed murder. According to the Levitical Law, David should have been drug out to the center of the city and stoned to death. There was no ambiguity in the law when it talked about an “eye for an eye.” And, when David finally did repent for these heinous sins, it wasn’t like he did it on his own. No, he[…]
