Completely Overrun By A Flood Of God's Holy Presence

Destiny's Design and Fulfillment

Behind the Scenes: Success Embedded Human DNA

We were created to be successful. It was hard-wired into the blueprint of talents and abilities, we have been born with. Each of us are uniquely gifted with a specific set abilities, for enabling us to achieve greatness. The key to realizing that greatness, is to be aware of our abilities and how they can be used to accomplish our goals and passions in life. We have the exact tools we need to fulfill our appointed destiny.

The Gospel (Good News) In A Nutshell

The reason we're having this conversation, is because the God who loves and cares deeply for you, arranged this meeting before the time of creation. After forming this planet and populating it with every life-form imaginable, he placed within it a man and a woman as caretakers. He instructed them to be fruitful and multiply, but inserted a single note of caution: "refrain from eating the fruit of a tree in the middle of a certain garden." The footnote added to this cautionary warning was, "on the day you eat of this said fruit, you shall die."

The Plan of the Ages Unveiled

The sense of anticipation, among the members of the guardian guild, was extremely intense. They were gathering to attend this important meeting called by the grand high council. In the recollection of the attendees, there never was a time when such urgency was associated with an event. There was a frenzy of speculation, circulating among the guild members, concerning the intent of this gathering. As everyone in attendance would soon discover, the reason for this meeting was beyond the wildest theory anyone had yet contrived.

Love Never Fails

The Lord continues to amaze us as we recognize His hand in daily events in our lives and those around us. "Every time we pray, something happens." These are the words of Jim Moore, the director of the Salem House of Prayer. As we begin to approach our prayer life from this perspective, we'll attach more significant value to our times of prayer. We understand our God as the faithful Father, so we know time spent in His presence is never wasted. If we realized every time we pray, something happens, what would that do to our level of expectation.

Disease That Will Destroy Your Destiny

I want to share what the Lord has shown me concerning the "Disease That Will Destroy Your Destiny." That fatal disease is known as "Procrastination." I'll never forget the words of Mike Murdock, who said, "you'll never advance in the kingdom of God beyond your last act of disobedience." Procrastination is a form of disobedience and defines the difference between forgetful "hearers" and "doers" of the Word of God. This very blog post represents a milestone in my life, because I'm a professional procrastinator.

Fallen Comrade

A Momentary Lapse In Judgment Can Cause Lasting Consequences

I couldn't help but reflect upon the events that recently transpired, which brought me to this point. The honor guard had just finished folding the flag that was draped over the coffin of my CO. The flag was handed to me and I presented this triangular-shaped banner to the spouse of my fallen commanding officer. The flood of emotions that came over me at that moment were absolutely unbearable.

Just Like in the Days of Noah

"Tell me once again, grandfather, about your father and how he walked with God." Young Noah loved to hear the stories of the old times from his grandfather Methuselah. He was eager to know every detail and his grandfather could paint an extremely vivid picture. Besides, the old man loved to revel in the young lad's desire for the knowledge that he was more than willing to share. Most of the youth, these days, didn't seem to care about times past. They were preoccupied with the present and how much enjoyment they could get out of life.

Thoughts On Spiritual Warfare

We need to be wise to the devices and tactics of the enemy or he will exploit our weaknesses.

If we know the "Word" of God (Holy Bible) we can't be outmaneuvered. An ancient warrior was fitted with armor, but he still had to know how to take full advantage of the protection it afforded. The devil will try to get us to battle on his own terms, like when he tempted Jesus in the desert. Jesus never deviated from the "Word" and He was victorious. Stick with the "Word" and don't war after the flesh (the weapons of our warfare are not carnal).

Woman, Wife and Mother

WOMAN

The Greek word for "woman", is gyne, which also includes the meaning of the word "wife."

Woman shares, with man, the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26-27). That image permits human beings to relate on every dimension of personality (emotional, intellectual, spiritual, physical, etc.,). This makes them unique in all creation.

WIFE

The Hebrew word isah is translated as "wife" and "marriage."
