The Peace of God

“Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” Luke 21:26…… I remember years ago when CNN introduced 24 hour news. I thought, “Wow, isn’t this great!” I now look back and realize it wasn’t so great after all. I…

The LORD Our Healer

“…for I am the LORD that healeth thee.” Exodus 15:26….. This verse uses one of God’s many compound names found in the Old Testament. These compound names reveal His character and His provision. The compound name used in this verse is Jehovah Rapha. The name Jehovah Rapha means “the LORD who heals you.” God has revealed Himself as…

Be the light!

“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light to all that are in the house.” Matthew 5:14,15…… You’ll notice in this passage of scripture that Jesus tells us that we’re to shed light in two places – the…

Enter Into The Holiest

“Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the Blood of Jesus,….” Hebrews 10:19…… Have you ever thought about how we enter the Holiest? We don’t physically go in there. I believe one of the ways we enter the Holiest is by our words. Our words of faith, our words of worship, and our words of prayer go into the Holiest…

Victory!

“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57…….. I learned early in my Christian life that if I was going to walk in victory I would need to do two things: I would need to stay full of the Holy Spirit and I would need to keep my mind renewed with God’s thoughts. Victory has already been…

Let the Word fight your battles!

“For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 NKJV……. One of the phrases that has helped me a lot over the years is, “Let the Word fight your battles for…

The Anointed One

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11…….. Merry Christmas! Who would have thought that just saying that would be controversial? The world (actually it’s the devil) would love to take the Christ out of Christmas. Even though the world, and even many in the Church don’t know…

Setbacks are only temporary!

“Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again but satan hindered us.” I Thessalonians 2:18…….. Have you ever felt like you’ve experienced a setback? That’s what the apostle Paul is talking about here. He had tried to go to the Thessalonians on more than one occasion but was hindered by satan from doing so. You need…

The Ministry Of Angels

“Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?” Hebrews 1:14…….. Part of our inheritance as believers is the ministry of angels. Not only has God provided us forgiveness of sins, the new birth, the Holy Spirit, healing, but He has also made us inheritors of the ministry of angels. We can and…

God Never Changes!

“For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore you sons of Jacob are not consumed.” Malachi 3:6…….. One of the things that makes God who He is, is that He never changes. That’s one of His characteristics. People may change, circumstances may change, but God remains the same forever. There’s no variableness or even a shadow of turning in…
