Beyond the Threshold

BEYOND THE THRESHOLD REVISITED I originally penned this message in early 2005. In the process of listening, in simply sitting in His presence, the Lord brought it to mind to review. It deals with a Body-level of maturity vital for this hour. It addresses the elements of Kingdom paradoxes that are both gateways and critical […]

When Evil Abounds

When Evil Abounds “According to their deeds, He will repay fury to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies. So shall they fear the Name of the Lord from the West and His glory from the rising of the sun; for He will come like a rushing stream driven by the Spirit of Adonai.” Is 59:18-19 […]

It taps Jesus’ central message of the Kingdom of God […]

Entrepreneurs and Cultural Change

Entrepreneurs and Cultural Change An entrepreneur is defined as one with the ability to spot opportunity and to know what to do about it, at a profit. The defining link is in correctly discerning and knowing what to do about opportunity, which from both a biblical and an historic Jewish stance is what stewardship is […]

New Wineskins

New Wineskins The Word of God points to the combination of spiritual maturity with community unity as foundations for God’s people progressively achieving world-shaking results. Yet, one of the largest, most subtle blind spots hindering current-day Christian maturity is the premise that Jesus spent three plus years with His inner-circle imparting information. The misconception being […]
