Games People Play

Games People Play One of the fruits of a world trying to make it without God is the games played. The superficialities. The masks. The embellishments, the little “white lies” to outright fabrications and deceit that undermine and short-circuit the foundations to enduring relationships. Whether international diplomacy, politics, business, dating, marriage or simply the broad […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
