Is Jesus The Illegal Immigrant’s Ticket to Ride?

“To be clear, the blood of Jesus and the power of His resurrection did not buy a ticket of entry into any sovereign nation in the world.” For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8, 9 A Gallup poll (2013) of people in 154 nations found that the USA is a desired permanent destination for…

What Does the Bible Say About Borders?

The international border wall between San Diego, California and Tijuana, Mexico. “He has made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God …” (Acts 17:26-27)   America is in a war for the wall and the womb; a battle for protection of unborn and newly born babies and for a secure sovereign nation.  In my previous post…

Babies, The Bible, and The Bottom of Our Society

So shall they fear the Name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.  ~ Isaiah 59:19 This week in America we entered new territory as a nation, a deeper dimension of evil previously not thought possible. The United States Senate failed to get the required 60 votes to pass a law that would…

Seeing From God’s Perspective

But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it. Matt. 13:16, 17 As I entered the New Year I was seeking what the Holy Spirit would say to me about the year 2019. I was not clearly seeing, perceiving, hearing or discerning His…

Prophetic Proclamation Precedes Manifestation

“For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish…

Choose to Be a Victor

We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 2 Cor. 4:8-10 (NKJV) I have been preaching in our church on the concept of victims versus victors.  All of us have been victims at some time in life. A victim…

From Victim to Victor!

But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to You;  You are the helper of the fatherless. Ps. 10:14 This scripture acknowledges that affliction in some form is a reality for all people. But it directs those afflicted, the victims, to the Father for help. In this Truth lies the secret of moving from victim to victor. We have in our nation and in much of western culture,…

Respect Prophecy of the Lord

Know, then, that not a word the Lord has spoken against the house of Ahab will fail. The Lord has done what he announced through his servant Elijah.” 2 Kings 10:10 This scripture was spoken by Jehu, 10th King of Israel (northern Kingdom). Jehu was a unique leader among the many kings of the divided nation of Israel. One specific characteristic that is highly noteworthy was his responsiveness and respect for the Word of the Lord. Once Jehu was anointed…

The Jehu Generation

The remains of the temple of Baal. “Hitch up my chariot,” Joram ordered. And when it was hitched up, Joram king of Israel and Ahaziah king of Judah rode out, each in his own chariot, to meet Jehu. They met him at the plot of ground that had belonged to Naboth the Jezreelite. 22 When Joram saw Jehu he asked, “Have you come in peace, Jehu?” “How can there be peace,” Jehu replied, “as long as all the idolatry and witchcraft…

Cutting Through the Argument

Yet he did not waiver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. Romans 4:20, 21 (NIV) Prior to Jesus, God the Father would speak and interact with one man or woman to speak and bring forth His purposes and intentions on earth.  We see this operating through people such as Abraham, Jacob, Moses, the prophets and…

The Power of Prophetic Persuasion

No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 17 ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people.  Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.18 Even on my servants, both men and women I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.’ (Acts 2:15-18) The day of Pentecost opened the gates for a free flow of the prophetic heart of God. The…

The Glory of God

And the Lord said to Moses, “I will do the very thing you have asked, because I am pleased with you and I know you by name.” 18 Then Moses said, “Now show me your glory.” Exodus 33:17-18 The Biblical concept of ‘glory’ is threaded throughout the Word of God appearing more than 350 times. Glory brings forth the idea of the splendor, honor, worship, and divine presence and attributes of God.  When Moses and the Israelites miraculously escaped from Egypt…
