Reformation

Today we commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.  It was a watershed moment for the Church, when the Augustinian monk Martin Luther published his Ninety Five Theses on October 31, 1517. It brought the Church in the west to where we are at today. Decentralizing power and authority, bringing the Church back to

Culture War

It represented a tipping point in our culture. In January of 1997 on the Larry King Live show, Larry Flynt and Jerry Falwell met on live television in what would be an historic interview regarding the movie, “The People vs Larry Flynt”, which was a play on the real life drama between the legal battle

Tribes & Clans

Do you know the difference between a tribe and a clan? This teaching is lost in Christianity today but it applies to the family of God and unlocks something very powerful. When you read through the Bible you will come across genealogies. Although these can be boring and appear to be irrelevant, they are important.

One King

There is only one King, His name is Jesus. There is a passage of scripture that I turn to when there is something that needs searching. "It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out." - Proverbs 25:2 A few years back when I started

A Come to Jesus Meeting

The Church needs a come to Jesus meeting. Today our nation is more hurt and divided than ever before, and the Church stands at the center of that affliction. We must be reminded that our King has no political affiliation. The Lion of Judah is not a Republican. According to Christian pastors, leaders and speakers our

Of Men & Walls

Place your faith in men and walls. Actually, the Bible specifically says the opposite. Ironic, isn’t it? Today Christians across Facebook will post Bible verses that give false comfort so that they can cope with the reality that our children will inherit a Godless nation. Either way this election swings, we are headed to death

A Great Awakening

Racial reconciliation will lead the next revival. I remember hearing those words at Azusa Now in April of this year. As the Lord tends to do, He called me to attend this meeting at the last minute. Whenever God calls me to go somewhere it is typically to hear a specific word from Him, and

Sons and Daughters: The Prodigal Story

Sonship can never be taken away, but the strength of a relationship takes two. The story of the prodigal son is probably my favorite passage of scripture. It paints an amazing picture of God’s love for us and also speaks to the reason behind it. The passage teaches sonship and a proper understanding of it leads to right

Time to Build

It is time to take the land and build. I was looking over my notes and praying. As I stared at the computer screen late into the night I understood what I was witnessing, but it didn’t add up. Dark pool traders had been buying up the market, propping it up. The house of cards was
