The First Two Gifts

December 1, 2018

Christmas is a time when we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the gift of life to a lost and dying world.  We also celebrate the season by the giving of gifts to those we love.  Few realize that the first gifts were given, not to celebrate a pagan festival but, as a loving gift from… Read More ›

‘Where Is God’…When Bad Things Happen To Good People?

All of us were shocked as we watched the news unfold on the horrific crash of the New York limousine that took the lives of 20 people.  In the days that followed we watched as one family held a funeral for eight family members while attending ten additional funerals for close friends.  We listened as… Read More ›

‘The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers’ Influence the Medical Community

In the September issue of Parade Magazine, Dr. Mehmet Oz, star of The Dr. Oz Show was  interviewed concerning his thoughts on Weight loss, Dementia and the Medical Breakthroughs that are quickly transforming health care. First we want to say that we are not personally against or attempting to refute all that Dr. Oz purports… Read More ›

Exposing Schemes of the Deceiver

We see them everywhere, people whose very countenance has the appearance of being troubled or bothered by…something.  Some we try to avoid making eye contact with, others we watch as they have imaginary conversations with, ‘who-knows-who’.  From my observation there are varying degrees of mental illness or being “troubled.” Some appear to function and respond… Read More ›

How To Banish Your Inner Demons

In recent years we have seen an unprecedented rise in the suicide rates within our country.  Not only are people taking their own lives in alarming numbers but we are also seeing a shocking number of disturbed individuals either shooting up classrooms full of children or getting into a vehicle and then driving through a… Read More ›

Ministering Freedom to the ONE!

It was after 11 p.m. and the line of people waiting for prayer continued to grow.  Earlier we had told the congregation that we were going to continue to pray till we had prayed for everyone and because of that the line continued to grow.  We were tired but it was a good tired and… Read More ›

Though The Times They Are A Changing!

Proverbs 4:7 says that “Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom.  Though it cost all you have, get understanding.”  The Bible has much to say about the importance that wisdom and understanding has as it pertains to our personal lives.  Though the word of God does not change, our culture which is often defined by its… Read More ›

You Can’t Handle The Truth!

Searching out the truth in a matter can be very difficult.  In today’s society we change terminology to legitimize the guilty by minimizing the terms we use in describing their behavior.  For instance; a person who was once referred to as a ‘porn-star’ is now referred to as an ‘adult film star’ and a woman… Read More ›

We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

I have found that the truths that a culture professes are in direct relationship to the moral and ethnic values of that culture. The framers of the Constitution of the United States proclaimed “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain… Read More ›

“What We’ve Got Here…Is Failure to Communicate!” 1967 Film, Cool Hand Luke

I don’t think any of us would deny the fact, that every news organization is in some way biased in their reporting of the news.  I find it sad, that the days of Walter Cronkite are over and along with it any trust we may have that our news is in any way impartial. Personally,… Read More ›

“Jerry, Just Remember, It’s Not A Lie If You Believe It.” George Costanza

If we did a word search for a phrase that is currently featured prominently in our society I am sure that ‘Fake News’ would be somewhere close to the top of the list.  Fake News consist of people or organizations that spread information that they either believe to be accurate or know to be untrue… Read More ›

2018-The Keys to Awareness & Restoration

Everyone, to some degree, is interested in what the Holy Spirit has/is revealing to the church concerning the year ahead.  I find most revelations fall into one of two categories, either everything is coming up roses or it’s the end of the world.  It seems like there are just not many middle of the road… Read More ›

How to change the way we see!

Every year Christmas seems to arrive a little bit sooner than it had the previous year and yet when it is over we are amazed at how fast the time went by.  Afterwards, we make a mental note reminding us not to become so overwhelmed by all the activity that we forget to keep Jesus… Read More ›

How Well Do We Really See?

When you look at the picture on the right do you see a young woman or an old woman?  Interestingly enough many can see only one or the other.  With practice it is possible to see both but to do so you have to focus your eyes on a neutral area.  If you see only… Read More ›

Destroying The Enemy Within

Years ago there was a comic strip written by Walt Kelly whose main character, ‘Pogo’ introduced us to a phrase that so captured man’s humanity that it has become a main stay in pop culture.  In the cartoon ‘Pogo’ stands looking at his self in a full-length mirror, while the caption above his reflection reads,… Read More ›


The other day I went to the movie ‘Dunkirk’ with my son-in-law.  Although we planned on arriving late, hoping to miss all the commercials that theaters are now showing, we soon realized we could easily have arrived later because we were barraged with close to twenty-five minutes of previews of movies that I had no… Read More ›

Sixteen verses discovered missing from the word of GOD!

The first Bible I studied after becoming a Christian was Lois’s copy of the ‘Living Bible’.  I didn’t know much about Bibles other than the big white one my parents had stuffed into their bookcase.  It was full of ‘thee’s and thous’ which made reading it like reading an old Shakespearean play.  The Living Bible… Read More ›

The ‘slow death’ of a Nation!

Like others I have wondered for years as to why there does not seem to be any reference in the Bible concerning our nation as it pertains to the end of days.   I even went so far as to wonder if our nation had suffered a major natural disaster or had been invaded by another… Read More ›

A Revival that Last!

As most of you may know, our family was touched powerfully in 1995 at a conference in Kelowna, BC.  Because of what happened and how dramatically it affected us, I became a student of past and present revivals.  As the years passed, I began to collect and pour over as much information as I could… Read More ›

You Take the Red Pill…and…You Stay in Wonderland!

I remember the first morning after I had given my heart to Jesus.  I had gone outside of our Montana home and was standing looking at the Canadian Rockies to the north when I became aware that something was different.  It wasn’t the view of mountains in the distance or the warmth of the morning… Read More ›

The note said…‘MORE TO FOLLOW’

A story was told of a man who decided to send two thousand dollars cash to a man who was in need and thinking it was too much to send all at once by mail he decided to send two hundred dollars in a letter, along with a note which simply said, “More to follow.” … Read More ›

A Love Worth Fighting For!

We are called to be warriors of the most high God and yet we are also called to be ambassadors of God’s love.  Two seemingly opposite yet foundational themes, found throughout the scriptures, which describes our role as children of God.  If we have been called to be ‘God’s Warriors of Love’ it would be… Read More ›

You’re Not From Around Here

          Twenty-five years ago a book came out entitled, ‘Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus’ it was intended to deal with the complicated relationships between men and women.  And though it did give us a different perspective and a few good quotes that one could chuckle over it only scratched the surface of… Read More ›

2017 – A Year of Unpredictability!

As I prayed over the New Year I sensed in my spirit that this is going to be a very aggressive year for everyone around the world.  As fast paced and unpredictable as last year was, this year will far surpass it as one event will hardly have a chance to be spoken of when… Read More ›

Thanksgiving Outreach, Philadelphia

I thought you would like to have a glimpse of the outreach we did in Philadelphia on the 19th.  If my memory serves me well I believe this is close to the eleventh year we have given out turkeys and groceries in Philadelphia for Thanksgiving.  I don’t know if you can see it or not… Read More ›
