The Season and Rites of Passage

THE SEASON AND RITES OF PASSAGE Numerous factors combine to prodding us into what we call maturity. Both in the natural and spiritual. The process is never easy and quite often involves serious disruption in what we deem as expected rights and comforts. When it involves passing into maturity as a people, the bar is […]

Daniel’s Anointing for Timing

DANIEL’S ANOINTING FOR TIMING The priorities and standards in the life of Daniel offer great insight for this season. One of the most subtle aspects of his brilliant anointing is that of timing. Its significance is critical in the quest to “get it right” when so much is on the line during times of major […]

The Reset and Repentance

THE RESET AND REPENTANCE In a time of rapidly-evolving change, a need has arisen to be more discerning: a time to be alert to embrace the factors of significance tied to the new season. For those called by His Name, one of those key factors is repentance. Not to be confused with obsessing over trivial […]

The Restoration Shift

The Restoration Shift From the time of the garden fall, the world has been undergoing a process of restoration. As the condition of man digressed, God chose a people, with whom He made a covenant, who would know Him and His ways, whose lives would advance the momentum of this process. What was originally established […]

Evil Reports

EVIL REPORTS Grasshoppers. That was how the Hebrew spies saw themselves when encountering the reality of overwhelming spiritual opposition. Yet, it was a reality that had to be overcome in the face of far greater opportunity. Their report, their response to this reality resulted in them not only missing the opportunity, but triggering judgment on […]

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 […]
