Responding to God in the Time of God

Hi Friends, If you want to get caught up on my most recent series, read The Coming Movement is Now, and Making Sense of a Transitional Season. Today, I will be looking into how to best respond to God in this critical hour of human history. Response #1 Hearing and understanding the hour in which ...

Making Sense of a Transitional Season

Hi Friends, The other day I wrote about a coming movement. Today, I would like to look at a few indicators of this movement, its counterfeits, and some practical ways we can respond to what God is calling the Church into. This post is by no means intended to be exhaustive, but does seek to ...

The Coming Movement is Now

Hi Friends, The Lord is stirring the hearts of Christians among many diverse ministries and groups that a great shift is happening in the nations, and this shift is taking place within the U.S. as well. It is not just one group or church here or there. The coming shift is not merely the ambitions ...

This November 6th

Hi Friends, The political noise out there today is obviously strong, so I thought I would offer something of a respite if you have time for about 500 words or so. Regardless the outcome of this election, it should be first and foremost on the minds of Christians in U.S. this November, 6th 2018, that ...

The Lost Discipline of Correction

Why I’ve Spent the Past Decade Fighting to End Abortion

Hi Friends, It has been a while since I have written a public post about abortion. As with most subjects, I have decided to be much more careful and selective about what I say in the echo chamber of social media. There is a time to be silent and a time to speak, and I ...

Worship Expressing Ethnic Deliverance

Hi Friends, This morning I was listening to a reggae worship band while getting my store setup for the workday. There are many forms of worship God delights in. Some are related to musical expression and others related to our lifestyle and what we do in our labors. Personally, I get a lot of joy ...

Barrabas, Nationalism, and the Woman Caught in Adultery

If you believe you're superior to someone else, can you truly love them? The goal of today's article is to establish the idea that nationalism is poisonous to the Gospel witness. Before I get started, here is my clarifying statement: "Nationalism is different from patriotism." Nationalism believes that one's own country, nation, and/or culture is superior to ...
