Diversity….a term we have heard much about lately, although other words have superseded it now, such as identity (politics), intersectionality (whatever that is) and the like.
I’m going to make the easily provable case that God, even though He stays the same (as the scripture says) is actually diverse…and He enjoys our differences…because He made us this way! Continue reading
Thankfulness is the language of the Kingdom of God.
Praise and thankfulness for God’s love, grace, and His many blessings in our lives impresses Him. Without an attitude of gratitude, one cannot go far with God. If you have children, are you not supremely happy when they are grateful for the things you do for them? Do you not rejoice when they grow and mature and are happy adults who can make good decisions for themselves? Well, God is a Father…our original Father. Continue reading
What is man that You should exalt him, that You should set Your heart on him, that You should visit him every morning, and test him every moment? Job 7:17
Early in the book of Job, Job questions his own purpose, as he finds himself in a time of testing. I think we all do that as we do not understand what has happened to us. We are flummoxed, we are gobsmacked. Terrible things have happened to Job and he wonders why he was born. I think we all do that. Continue reading
Lance Wallnau is a favorite teacher of ours. Here is an excellent podcast from 2018 explaining some things he sees as being the mandate of the church in these turbulent times. You can subscribe to his timely podcast on apple.com.
“The Lance Wallnau Show” follows the machinations of influence shaping and policy making in America, from local political activism to international diplomacy. Lance Wallnau looks past the distractions of political theater and stunts and focuses on the hidden powers and agenda. Lance breaks down and decodes current events, legislative proposals and policies that shape American life – as well as the people making and influencing those policies and their ultimate outcome, intended or otherwise.
“What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him— these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.
For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.” 1 Corinthians 2:10-12
“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it.” Joshua 1:8 NKJV
These instructions were given to Joshua as he became the new leader of the Israelites after the death of Moses. Continue reading
I failed to announce my second Dogtags and Pearls book that was finished last year. This is the second compilation of blog posts from this blog. There will be a third also, as I am already designing the cover for that one. Stay tuned.
You can order Dogtags and Pearls 2 directly from me or find me on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.com. Again, these are lessons and nuggets from Heaven of spiritual realities.
“You meant it for evil, but God meant it for good, that many might be SAVED.” Genesis 50:20.
In this statement that Joseph made to his brothers, Joseph acknowledges that he finally sees the purpose of God, even after all the years he had been treated so badly, first betrayed and sold by his brothers into Egypt. Continue reading
God told the Israelites He had given the Promised Land to them….they were to go in and take it. It was theirs. Twelve spies went in first to check things out. They came back with two reports.
One report by Joshua and Caleb was “The land is good and we are well able to take it.” As proof, they had returned with a cluster of grapes so large, it needed two men to carry it on a pole! Continue reading
Before Jesus went to the cross, in John Chapter 15, He told His disciples “No longer do I call you servants because a servant doesn’t know what his master is doing. But I call you friends, because I have told you everything My Father is doing.” Think about that. Jesus elevated the disciples’ position. Servants just get directions or orders on a need to know basis, but Jesus is saying that, as friends, I will let you in on secrets and I will let you know what I’m thinking.
