What is an autoimmune disease?
First of all, let me briefly explain that an immune system is the series of organisms in our body that use T-cells which attach to and destroy foreign tissues that invade our bodies to produce disease and infection. It is the way the body is designed to keep itself healthy and functioning in life and wholeness.
Therefore, when you have an autoimmune disease the body is somehow compromised into believing that the healthy, productive cells are…Continue

Proving to be disciples

Below is one of the more insightful quotes concerning spiritual growth I have read in some time.
"It is quite possible for the church to be both growing and not bearing fruit of the Spirit. What is happening in many cases is that the church is simply…Continue

"What God accomplished in Christ" to rescue us (from darkened or veiled identity) is what gives our faith equal value. (If righteousness had anything to do with personal merit or performance, then only the good enough amongst us would qualify. The word, lanchano, to…Continue

"When we perceive the Cross of Christ, we behold all the powers of hell, earth, and Heaven, arrayed against the Lamb.
In the death of Jesus Christ, we have marvelously combined Satan's power; man used as the instrument in killing the Prince of Life; God smiting Him; and yet no one took His Life from Him. He…Continue

Follow me, that is the demand of Jesus Christ to us. But the picture I see as I write is a man or women relentless in prayer and seeded with a vision planted in seasons past. They are bowed in a submissive posture. Jesus steps into the picture and interrupts saying follow me. They light up, thinking that the break through is upon them. But they do not get up and follow. Why? The way I have seen it is this. When Jesus came to those in the…Continue

What does it take to carry Christ?
written by Michael McBane
I stumbled upon something the other day that stirred in me through the night of my discovery. It was about Mary the mother of Jesus. Let me ask a question. Did Mary have a choice to be the mother of Jesus? The answer is yes.
But if we read the text (Luke 1:26 through 38) we will see that she had been favored by God. The angel told her so. Clearly her heart was tender and she had turned away from her own way to…Continue

“O Lord, God of heaven, the great and awesome God who keeps his covenant of unfailing love with those who love him and obey his commands, listen to my prayer! Look down and see me praying night and day for your people Israel. I confess that we have sinned against you. Yes, even my own family and I have sinned! We have sinned terribly by not obeying the commands, decrees, and regulations that you gave us through your servant…Continue

"It is not that the Truth sought for is not in the Word, but that through lack of communion with Him Who gave that Word, we have not enough of His Mind to apprehend His meaning, even when He has fully expressed it." Andrew Jukes
“Our great desire is that you will keep on loving others as long as life lasts, in order to make certain that what you hope for will come true. Then you will not become spiritually dull and indifferent. Instead, you will follow the example of those who are going to inherit God’s promises because of their faith and endurance. For example, there was God’s promise to Abraham. Since there was no one greater to swear by, God took an oath in his own name, saying:

I would like to hear some thoughts back on this...I used to think, "Now we are free from having to follow the Law. We simply love God and each other. (as if that was the easier thing to do.) So now that I am older, the impossibility of that is real to me. So, I read in 1 John (4:22- 5:3) and it seems that John who is a Jew and knows the most famous commandment (Mark 12:30-31) interchanges "Love the Lord Your God,,," with "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ." Will this produce the Desired…Continue
Oh Galilean, Why do you turn your back on the Heathen? Why do you walk away from those that don't follow your way (THE Way). I did for a season. Through that I hardened my heart from those that needed prayer the most. We/Galileans are called to be the light of this world, the salt of the Earth. We are called to Disciple those that would follow the Way. We are called to spread the God Spell/Gospel of Jesus Christ though the World. We try to keep ourselves from being effected by the…Continue

I searched through many boxes looking for meaning and answers to what life is really about. I have plowed through doors and entered places that I wish I had never gone and none of them led me into God’s presence. It was only after Jesus Christ came into my life and His precious, Holy Spirit filled my heart that everything changed. I entered a completely new world. It was like crossing a curtain that separates the heavenly and earthly realms. Thankfully, God does not force us to keep the…Continue
