All Prayer

Today’s article continues an eight week series on the armor of God. A very important part of being prepared spiritually for the “End Times” is being dressed in and utilizing the whole armor of God for Satan will be extremely powerful and even more deceptive because he knows that his time is short. The next piece of armor to be put on by the Christian soldier is all prayer. Those on the front lines in any military campaign will tell you the importance of good communication with their headquarters. It is no different with the Christian soldier who is also on the front lines in his struggle against the enemy; he needs good communication with his Commander in Chief. Prayer is essential as we wait to strike the enemy with just the right words from God so that it will penetrate their heart and win another victory for Christ. There are many kinds of prayers, and they are all useful in standing against the devil. There is intercessory prayer where we pray for others that God will meet their specific needs, there is a prayer of thanksgiving and praise, there is a prayer of repentance and confession, there is a prayer for a specific mission activity, there is prayer of meditation on God’s Holy Word, and there is prayer against the strongholds of the devil. It takes all kinds of prayer to stand against the wiles of the devil. Continue reading All Prayer

Prophets Mantle

“Thus saith the Lord.” Do you really want to hear what God has to say? It’s irrevocable. It’s like fire torching the soul. There is no negotiation. No interpretation needed. No personal opinion, just the pure powerful words of God. Why God chooses humble, flawed, human beings to proclaim His Word is a mystery, yet understood. The prophet must be nothing so that God can be everything. All pride and self assurance must be eradicated. God doesn’t need your help, just your willingness to be His mouthpiece. Whatever you think God should say to His people or to the world must be jettisoned as pitiful rubbish. If you know what you are going to say before you say it then you have tricked your mind into believing that you are ready, you’re not. He did not ask you to think it through or give literary flavor to His Words. He asked you to be nothing so that He can be everything through you. Once the vessel is made empty it’s finally ready for the Master’s use. When you pick up the prophets mantle then God will speak to His people in a day of great confusion, He will speak to a world in unrelenting turmoil, and everyone will know that an unpopular prophet has come among them.

Finding Answers to Life’s Problems

As our country prepares to celebrate our Independence Day unfortunately many in the world don’t feel much like celebrating. A dark shadow has been cast over the world from an increase in rampant lawlessness to the destabilization of other nations. The stress level of the world’s population is off the scale due to fear of catastrophic natural disasters, impending pandemics, the possibility of world war, or a bloody persecution of Christians. The world is faced with a multitude of problems. In our struggle to walk as children of light in a dark world we have all lost many battles to the old nature and the enemy. Many Christians who are burdened with life’s problems find little accurate and authoritative counsel from others. For many they find little comfort or direction from the Bible which has resulted in a life of bondage to emotional and psychological problems forcing them to the world’s counselors to find a cure. Often times in desperation they have readily accepted the remedy of psychotropic (mind altering) drugs leading to life of addiction, other dependence, and spiritual depression. By God’s grace I want to spare you of that. Continue reading Finding Answers to Life’s Problems
