The Stewardship of Generosity

The Stewardship of Generosity Never has there been a time that I have been more conscious of the presence spoken of in Hebrews regarding that great cloud of witnesses. With it has been the awareness of potent, penetrating prayer amassing from every corner of the globe. It’s the context for a great mobilization and with […]

The Recovery of All Things

The Recovery of All Things When everything changes. When the turbulence near and afar takes on proportions not seen in a lifetime. When the voices that define and determine the realities begin calling black white and white black, it is time to look beyond into the foundations in which we understand the times and know […]

The Anointing

The Anointing The anointing is that dimension, that spiritual residue both gleaned and imparted from interactions with God. It becomes the defining difference in the relationships and circumstances of one’s life. While quite often wielded powerfully by eager, innocent yet uninitiated new believers, more often it is the subtle but underlying dimension that amasses from […]


Consecration In his role of pleading with the leaders of God’s people to give God their undivided devotion, Jeremiah very poignantly prophesied: “Stand at the crossroads and look; then ask for the ancient paths where the good way lies, then walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” So it is that […]


Armor-Bearers After a particularly grueling and disconcerting week, that’s the word I received as I immersed myself in His presence. As a former seasoned combat military type, I have probably a better than most glimmer of the ancient concept of what it means to be an armor-bearer and its implications spiritually. However, message-wise, I had […]

Is Afrika Cursed?

Is Afrika Cursed? When in Nairobi in 1999, a book by the title “Is Afrika Cursed?” was one of two recommended to me by a group of Christian business leaders hosting my visit. Their intent was to give me a glimpse of the entrenched spiritual realities taking root across sub-Saharan Afrika. Each of these books […]

Where Angels Fear

Where Angels Fear — Revisited Note: For the third time in the last month while in prayer about my next SIGN message, specific previous posts have strongly come to mind: the other two being “The Listening Heart” and “Beyond the Threshold” which can be found at Combined and individually, their messages offer sound wisdom […]

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 […]

The Reach and Rhythm

The Reach and Rhythm Insightfully, the Psalmist captured a vital dimension of our response to the journey of life we face when he mixed his metaphors with the admonition to taste and see that the Lord is good. The conclusion of the counsel of this Psalm aptly fits the context and spiritual reality we need […]
