A careful look at the Word of God will reveal that the goals of Martin Luther’s gospel and that of the Kingdom of God are not at all the same. Perhaps it’s time to re-think our evangelism values and strategy.
David knew the secret to how to get your needs met. It wasn’t living perfectly and it wasn’t some “name it and claim it” formula … it was simply a matter of the heart and what you hold dear. [Read More]
The influence of Python in the Greco-Roman world was greatly enhanced by the expansion of Hellenism (Greek philosophy, culture, values). This worldview stands diametrically opposed to the concrete truth of YHWH’s commands and greatly affects not only the way we see the world, but also our view of worship.
Right in the middle of the Festival of Sukkot, the “Awaken the Dawn 2017” gathering in Washington DC is going to fan a resurgence of the heart of Korah. Worship leaders, speakers and congregants alike will attempt to offer praise to the God of Moses, while hiding a heart that longs for Egypt and it’s idols. Watch this unfold!

In Christianity, there is this push to “BE the Church.” Although most have good intentions – and the mantra “Be the Church” sounds so noble and good on the surface – their passions are based upon a false, predetermined assumption. When the rubber meets the road, all of these well-meaning people who are striving to “be the church” are really just taking part in a concerted effort to embody a man-made institution. Let’s take a deep dive in the Word of God. You’re going to see that His Ekklesia looks nothing like “the Church.”
False prophets at the End of the Age are people who probably have the best intentions. They may genuinely believe that they are doing God’s will and have the signs and wonders to back up their claims! But when it’s all said and done, the miraculous signs and wonders are not God’s “Seal of Approval” on their lives and ministries. [Read More]
