I don’t know what’s going on in the world but I can’t it seems like satan is on the move – literally. I seems now that several times a week someone tells me that satan appeared to them in a vision or they’re being attacked by satan himself.
Now I understand this kind of thinking – because I’ve said it too. Besides, we have to find some way to explain the things that aren’t working out quite right in our lives… so it must be satan… and maybe it is. But just last night I had a revelation about the person of satan. Continue reading
I recently had a conversation which I have not had in a long time. It’s a subject that I am well acquainted with and struggled with in the early days of my faith. But that was many years ago and I havn’t given much thought to the matter since. The question that was posed to me (in the form of a forceful statement) is do we still have a sin nature?
I was sitting in a church meeting the other night and I had a funny thought. Actually, I should probably clarify that I believe that the thought was a gift from the Holy Spirit as I was minding my own business when this happy thought invaded. Ready for it it? Here it is:
God has no disillusions about you. Continue reading
D.L. Moody was a successful minister but by his own admission later, he lacked the power in his ministry. One day two women came up to him after a service. They said,
“We have been praying for you.”
“Why don’t you pray for the people?” he asked.
“Because you need the power of the Spirit,” they said. Continue reading

Just this morning I was reading in Romans chapter two where Paul writes to the church in Rome, “It is the goodness of God that leads to repentance”. I looked up the word “goodness” in a lexicon and while the word literally means kindness it implies long-suffering and acting in the welfare of the guilty. It’s a picture of the cross. When death was all we deserved we were given the gift of life through the benevolence of Christ.
After my quiet time I got on the internet and immediately found this video. I’m amazed that in every one of these conversion stories it wasn’t the harsh, wrath of a righteous Judge that set these people free, it was the kindness of God. And what He’s done for you, me and the ones in this video, He can do for anyone. So if you take nothing else away get this – People don’t nee you to remind them how bad they are, they need to be shown mercy and love and the kindness that our Father shows; And you’ll have ‘em repenting faster than you can say, “Repent heathen!”.
What an odd thing to say. It wasn’t me who said it, by they way -but we’ll get to that in a minute. Continue reading
I’ve always known that relationships we’re important, but in the body of Christ it has become ever increasingly more clear that they are essential. In the garden of Eden God said about Adam, “It is not good for man to be alone”. Relationship is the focus of God’s purpose, the theme throughout the entire bible: God desiring to dwell amongst His people, God reconciling Himself to his people through Jesus as the perfect sacrifice, and then God’s culmination of the ages when Jesus returns for His church calling her His bride, the most intimate level of relationship possible. Satan began his strategy to breech
It all began one afternoon when I was walking through the hall out of my workplace and the Lord clearly said,”go pray for that teacher” and without hesitation, I did. Chicago Public Schools is one of the most anti-religious environments to work in, and yet God has positioned me there for such a time as this. Continue reading
We have recently discovered a way that we can complete the film for a fraction of our initial budget. When we started out the film we had this idea in our heads reminiscent of the glory days of bohemian artists- all piled in a van heading from place to place with camera gear tossed safely in the back. Unfortunately reality set in as we realized that we simply don’t have the budget to do that. So far, this film has been financed by the Continue reading
