Psalms 139:23-24 Search me thoroughly, O God, and know my heart! Try me, and know my thoughts! And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
You know there has been all kinds of tsunamis in the physicial realm that has brought all kinds of devastation. Now we are beginning to hear about the tsunamis taking place in the spirit. I was in my secret place a few mornings ago. I began thinking about the tsunami that hit Japan after the earthquake. The earthquake brought the shaking then the tsunami washed away everything in its path. I began to see that taking place in the spirit more clearly. There is a shaking coming to…Continue
Phil 4:6-7 Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don't forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus. TLB
Do you worry? How can something that feels so noble cause me to have so…Continue
Friday nights are becoming very special to me. I have the priviledge of gathering with a few of what I consider some of God's warriors. We get together for prayer and to look into God's word. It was at this gathering that the word concerning the shaking out of Hebrews 12 was revealed. We all felt a stirring of God's Spirit about this. This past friday night we began to understand even more concerning this.
This move of God is bringing a two fold outpouring. The glory of God as…Continue
While my wife Lorie and I where working in VA at an outreach ministry, God began to speak to us about the dangers of bonfires. Meaning that the size of the fire changes its practical uses. The ministry up there grew so rapidly and the fire seem to spread so fast that it was mind boggling. The reality was, there was something missing, some thing that we knew as essential to christian life, and that was a true intimate relationship with Christ and fellow believers. You see, bonfires are…Continue

The Coming Tsunami of Grace
Later as he was sitting on Mount Olives, his disciples approached and asked him, “Tell us, when are these things going to happen? What will be the sign of your coming, that the times up?”
Jesus said, “Watch out for doomsday deceivers. Many leaders are going to show up with forged identities, claiming, ‘I am the Christ, the Messiah.’ They will deceive a lot of people, When…Continue

I woke up like a child this morning. I want some of that good wheat bread and jam for breakfast.
Maybe a child would rather have Cheerios. ( Oh, well!) I was very thankful for my bread and jam!
I am being that kid again.
Even if I do not take time to take a nap,
I am resting because Jesus knows!
I will just do what he puts before me
I will just wait until its time
Sometimes a word will come
Even in a rhyme
But all along the…Continue

Matthew 11:2-4 Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples. And said unto him, art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?
This is the same John who when he saw Jesus coming unto him said, "behold the lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world." But now John's circumstances have changed. He is not baptizing in the river. He is not around those of like faith or kindred spirit. He is in jail and he begins to…Continue
Psalm 46:10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God”
Has God ever put a verse on your heart? Sometimes it’s for a day, maybe a few days, or maybe even a week. God has been reminding me of this verse for months now, and he will not let up. I love the way the Message says it…
“Attention, all! See the marvels of God! He plants flowers and trees all over the earth, Bans war from pole to pole, breaks all the weapons across his knee. ‘Step…Continue
Heb 12:25-28 is where I believe we are in the timeline of prohetic events that are stirring in the people of God. Ps 77:18 The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven, the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook. Also Ex 19:18 references the earth quaking at the voice of the Lord. Is 29:6 Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire. At the death…Continue
Here’s to Hoping
Too many of us have lived our lives suffering in a silent, shameful prison of hopeless despair. When we tried to hope--our hopes were always deferred. Hope for us was a mirage; one which was continually being pushed into an elusive, uncertain and clouded future.…Continue

Live today in the Flow!
"When God lives and breathes in you (and he does, as surely as he did in Jesus), you are delivered from that dead life. With his Spirit living in you, your body will be as alive as Christ’s!" Romans 8:11, The Message.
"In Christ, God leads us from place to place in one perpetual victory parade. Through us, he brings knowledge of Christ. Everywhere we go, people breathe in the exquisite fragrance. Because of Christ, we give off a sweet scent rising to God, which is recognized by those on the way to salvation--an aroma redolent with life." 2 Cor. 2:14-15a, The Message.…

We look to God when our world is being shaken, only to find that it is God that is doing the shaking.
Luke 21:25-28a There will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars, and on earth dismay…Continue
In Revelation chapter 1, we begin to see the response to the shaking of the earth and the heavens from the voice of God. The exciting news is the shaking has begun. God is speaking. The discovery of what He is saying is amazing. God is saying, "Prepare to meet thy God." In Revelation chapter 1 John meets God.
1. We must be in the Spirit
2. There will be a trumpet blast
3. There must be a turning
4. There will be an encounter
For so long in the Church we have gravitated to certain things. Our discernment is sometimes off in some ways. We need to be careful of what we are seeing and calling it the anointing or a demonstration of the power of God.
1. Seems like we are more concerned with style than we are substance
2. We seem to be more concerned with methods than we are message
3. We seem to be core concerned with the things God uses than the God that uses them
4. We are more…Continue

As I thought about this verse in Heb.12:2, I could sense the Holy Spirit wanted to convey something of a deeper dimension of the importance of what we fix our eyes, thoughts, and focus on. When we look at something, (either natural or spiritual,) we are seeking, searching, examining, and watching. When we focus on something it becomes our attraction, spotlight, center, heart and target.
The importance of what He was…Continue

Closer To The Light
When I began this Christian journey, I thought that each day I would grow and grow until I was truly a good and righteous man. I thought that each time I looked inside of my heart there would be less to deal with because righteousness was coming upon me. I thought that my growth would be, “to be more like Jesus”. I thought that maybe I would grow into a spiritual giant. If I am to be honest with God and myself, it is obvious that this is…Continue
