The Power of a Pattern

[Mat 6:9 NASB] 9 “Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. [Luk 11:2 NASB] 2 And He said to them, “When you pray, say: ‘Father, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Is A Prayer Pattern Anointed? Pentecostals are notoriously resistant to anything other than what feels “anointed”. We focus on spontaneity and passion. We avoid rigid and cold prayers and church services. After all, we want a relationship, not religion. With…

Satan Lies

“You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44 NASB Secret Messages Have you ever had a decoder ring? They are devices used to send a secret message…

If its from God, I want it

[Act 2:1-4 NASB] 1 When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 2 And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as…

A Borrowed Blessing

“Then he said, “Go, borrow vessels at large for yourself from all your neighbors, even empty vessels; do not get a few.” 2 Kings 4:3 NASB The Law of the Hole. Are you ready for sound financial advice? When in a hole, stop digging. (Selah) This is the mindset one needs to have when dealing with financial debt. Some people have tried to borrow their way out of debt. People use debt consolidating loans and such. They can even use…

Will You Pray With Me

[Act 1:13-14 NASB] 13 When they had entered [the city,] they went up to the upper room where they were staying; that is, Peter and John and James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James [the son] of Alphaeus, and Simon the Zealot, and Judas [the] [son] of James. 14 These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer, along with [the] women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.

Your Hem Is Showing Gifts and Fruit of the Spirit

[Exo 39:24-26 NASB] “24 They made pomegranates of blue and purple and scarlet [material and] twisted [linen] on the hem of the robe. 25 They also made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between the pomegranates all around on the hem of the robe, 26 alternating a bell and a pomegranate all around on the hem of the robe for the service, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.” Hems are important. The hem of any garment is…

The Fear That God Blesses

“Because the midwives feared God, He established households for them.” Exodus 1:21 NASB God blesses fear! Not that kind of fear. Not the kind of fear that stops you from fulfilling Jesus’ plan for your life. There is another kind of fear. This is the fear that will cause you to obey God even though it might cost you something. This is the kind of fear that causes us to honor God. The leader of Eygpt had become frightened by…

Sunday Is On Its Way

It might be Friday, but Sunday is on its way! Carman included that line in a song many years ago. (Here is a link to a video of the song. You will enjoy it.) On the Friday before Easter Resurrection Sunday we remember the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The following Sunday, Jesus rose from the grave! We have many Friday nights. Friday nights look like we are going to fail. Friday nights sound like a bad report. Friday nights bring hurt. Friday…

God is not mad at you. So what!

God’s not mad. Why would He be mad anyway? [Heb 2:17 NASB] 17 Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. Can God’s Anger Be Appeased? As a child, I had a horrible recurring dream. The dream involved me being held captive by a huge monster. I would want to escape…

It is going to blow. Do not touch him. He might have AIDS.

Let God make you bold.  [Pro 28:1 NASB] 1 The wicked flee when no one is pursuing, But the righteous are bold as a lion. “It is going to blow up!” We had just driven upon a crash site. A car had rear-ended a semi-truck. The car was on fire. The driver was still in the car! Many people were standing quite far from the fiery vehicle. My friend and I ran toward the car. As we ran to the car,…
