Daniel’s Father’s Heart

DANIEL’S FATHER’S HEART Many have been drawn to the calling of Joseph with its subtle modern-day expectations of apostolic trappings. Yet, with the exception of a remnant, this 21st century mantle will not find fulfillment without a serious grasp of the depths of the heart of Daniel. Few in Scripture were in as close touch […]

God-Consciousness

GOD-CONSCIOUSNESS I have long recognized a richness with those I have counted as friends. Rich friendships trigger the potential for the exponential between one another. That is how relationships were designed, by the Designer. While clearly a blessing of God, for me at least in part, this richness in relationships reflects a gift I have […]

Something-More Season

THE SOMETHING-MORE SEASON   Over the course of the roughly half-century that I have walked with the Lord as an adult, I have periodically encountered times when I found myself in over my head; when after pulling out all the stops, I had hit a wall in terms of being able to count on the […]

Where Angels Fear

Where Angels Fear Recently in prayer, the phrase “where angels fear to tread” popped into my mind. I knew there had been a movie. Many years prior to that, a book. The thought seemed to suggest a glimpse into the amassing chaos and turbulence of the times. Jesus, who saw outside the realm of time, […]

Out of the Box

OUT OF THE BOX Life is a process. An unfolding. A journey of continual discovery. An adventure. A process of thought. From this process of thought, it becomes a process of action. That’s what God intended from the beginning. That is where the gift lies, the Gift of Life. It requires understanding the order, the […]

The Time Is Here

THE TIME IS HERE Scoffing at the prophetic has had a long history. During the days of Ezekiel there came a word from the Lord that addressed it head-on. It began with: “They say the visions he sees are for many years from now.” That indictment continued by saying, “But this is what the Lord […]

I Call You Friends

I CALL YOU FRIENDS There are some who cross our lives, sometimes for only a brief time, but they leave an indelible mark. It is what happens when our spirits touch. When that happens it engenders a depth of relationship beyond the soul. It is what accompanies the expectation that Jesus was extending when He […]

Daniel’s Authority

DANIEL’S AUTHORITY Daniel was close to 80 when the rogue son of Nebuchadnezzar, the king who Daniel had warned to recognize and give honor to God or he would lose his mind, had the encounter with the handwriting on the wall. Despite being told he was about to lose his kingdom, this reprobate king, as […]

Spiritual Myopia

SPIRITUAL MYOPIA Radical change came for the generation following Solomon. It involved revolt and a time of chaos against the House of David. Its dynamics punctuate the role issues of spiritual short-sightedness can have on God’s best for His people during serious times of change. In the role served by the government of God, it […]

Mingled Anointings

MINGLED ANOINTINGS “Elijah said to Elisha, ‘Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you?’ Elisha said, ‘Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.’” 2 Kings 2:9 Elijah’s God-encounter in the cave which followed his exploits against the prophets of baal and asherah began a transition […]
