An Angelic Visit – A Message Received

Saturday afternoon, June 23, 2012, at approximately 2:30 pm It was a lovely day in Albany, New York, where Irene and I were attending the 2012 Annual Northeast Convening of the International Apostolic Ministries. We were staying at the Fairfield Inn in East Greenbush, New York, just across the Hudson River from the city of Albany. We drove that morning to the Crossgates Mall to do some sh...

A Gentle Spirit & a Humble Heart

“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” “He must increase, but I must decrease. He who comes from above is above all.” Utter dependence upon the Holy Spirit is of necessity. My efforts are earthly, but His works are heavenly. “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.” “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own underst...

Who Has Déjà Vu?

There have been scientific studies done for many years on the subject of déjà vu, but I’ve not read any conclusive evidence explaining only physical, emotional or situational reasons for it happening. I’ve even read some scientists who studied their own déjà vu events which came to no real substantive explanation. In my studies of this subject, I have found that some déjà vu experiences might be d...

The Image-Maker: Faith From The Unseen

"Even the darkness is not dark to You, and the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You. For You formed my inward parts, You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made! Wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well." Psalms 139:12-14 (NASB) Yehovah has made us in His image. That He would do such a l...

The “Image-Maker” For Your Prayer Of Faith

I remember when I first read David (Paul) Yonggi Cho’s book on faith (The Fourth Demension) in my very early years of pastoring. I was excited to have found a faith stirring and expanding way to pray with effects. I no longer have the book but if I remember the story correctly, at one point, he talked about needing a bicycle to travel around town on and when he prayed and he asked the Lord for a b...

What Does Religion Have To Do With Faith?

The word “religion” is a biblical word that means good and not evil. "Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world." James 1:27 (NASB) However, the modern definition and references to religion has now become a very negative term. It alludes to the self-righteous beliefs and ac...

Legacy Perspectives

Statues are a remembrance of something or someone that is somehow thought to be significant. There are family properties and riches, as well as heirlooms and valuables of all kinds that are bequeathed to the generations – older to the younger. Do these kinds of things matter to the Lord? I believe that they do. But these are not the true riches that are available to every believer. The "true ri...

Never Believe Any Part Of A Lie

You have, no doubt, heard it said that there is a little bit of truth in the lies that the devil speaks. Well, according to Jesus, that is just not true. Jesus said, “he is the father of lies, and the truth is not in him.” I think you can take that at face value and know that truth does not partner with a lie at all. And lies originate from the devil. A lie is a very spiritual thing. Because ...

Living With Stress vs. Distress

I believe that there is a difference between “stress” and “distress.” Stress is not only necessary, but it is good for you. Unfortunately, it gets a bad rap. People who are distressed often say that they are “stressed,” making the word have a different applied meaning and connotation. When people say, “I have a stressful job!” they really mean that they have a “distressful” job. Stress, on the ...

The Intercessory Power Of Communion

For more than three decades, I’ve been teaching on the revelation of Communion, the Last Supper, the Lord’s Table, or as it is called in the book of Malachi: The Table of the Lord. In a study of the scriptures concerning Communion, one will immediately find that the communion we celebrate as Christians is about the Passover of the Israelites. The supper that the Lord Jesus sat down to eat with His...
