To work the works


John 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else believe on account of the works themselves. 12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. (ESV) What do […]

What Now? – more than just raising the dead


In our journey as God’s children, I am so encouraged that we are not limited to just raising the dead, aren’t you? Shocked by that statement? John 14:12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because […]

Good fire from Heaven


What do you know about Elijah?  There are some pretty amazing stories about this guy and his exploits.  In the last post I talked about how Elijah called down “bad fire” from heaven to kill captains of the King’s army.  Jesus is the one who pointed out to His disciples that Elijah was working from […]

Fearfully Remade


This has been a “fearfully remade” journey of excitement and anticipation.  You should check out the last two posts if you missed them.  We have been on an exploration of the “fear of the Lord.”  If you have been keeping up you should be feeling much better about the “fear of the Lord” and ready to put to bed […]

A Child is Born


God with us Luke 2:10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. (ESV) From the beginning, the […]

Godly Judgment


In a number of posts now I have talked about how God is all about relationship.  In “Spoons and Steaks” and “More steak please” we saw how the law is not a means for justification because the law is the wrong tool and justification is relational not behavioral.  Simply said the law is the wrong utensil […]

Mediation with a purpose


In the last few posts I’ve hopefully revealed a mediator or advocate or intercessor in a new light.  In Mandatory Mediation I tried to show how the Holy Spirit is interceding for us in prayer.  In Mediation from Above I hope you see how much God is really for you and in no way is […]

Indifference


If you ask someone what they think of Heaven most often you will get a very positive response.  Unless the person is a self-professed atheist or a God hater they will probably say Heaven sounds like a wonderful place.  So I wonder why so much resistance to the Kingdom of Heaven?  Jesus said we should […]

THE six step program


I have asked myself before and people have asked me this question: “If all this is true why do I still have XYZ in my life?” XYZ = pain, suffering, broken relationships, hurts, hang-ups, addiction, pride, hopelessness, guilt, shame, anger, strife, division or whatever else is your “thorn.” (Check out Infamous Thorn) I’m going to […]
