There is a moral rift in the foundation of our nation. But the Bible is very clear that judgment begins with the house of God: "For the time [has arrived] for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will [be] the end of those who do not respect or believe or obey the good news (the Gospel) of God?" (…Continue

Could we say that the church has failed to wake up very many people so, by default, a Mormon -- Glenn Beck -- has made quite a stir and has become an official spiritual leader? He rallied hundreds of thousands last weekend with themes of faith and love of our country. Americans are desperate and fearful of what is coming upon this land so they look to a Mormon for leadership. I…Continue

Sensing Senators don’t have the stomach to try and pass a stand-alone bill in broad daylight that would give the President the power to shut down the Internet in a national emergency, the Senate is considering attaching the Internet…Continue

Here in the new millennium, upheaval and change are the hallmarks of our time. That's why it's more important than ever to learn the Bible's secret of being "established." In Romans, the apostle Paul wrote to a group of people who were living in a time similar to ours.
He told his friends, "For I long to see you in order that I may impart some…Continue
God has given us powerful weapons of warfare that are mighty through His Spirit. He made us with the power to speak, shout and make sound that tears down the powers of darkness. When our lives are lived with pure hearts in His presence there is nothing that can stand against the glory of God released through us.
Everything God has made in creation is original and diverse in its own way. We can look at…

In the year 2002 the Lord graciously allowed me to experience a series of visions and revelations that I have now incorporated in my book, "Books of Destiny." The essence of these truths involved the soon emergence of great spiritual champions from every walk of life who will be identified according to Hebrews 11 and experience deep realms of the Spirit. They will be a unique generation whose capacity for God will be greatly enlarged by supernatural grace and given…Continue

A federal appeals court has ruled a defamation lawsuit California pastor Frederick K.C. Price filed against ABC and its former 20/20 correspondent John Stossel can move forward.
Price, founding pastor of Crenshaw Christian Center in Los Angeles, claims his words were taken out of context in a 2007 20/20 report about businessmen, pastors and politicians who seem to live extravagant lifestyles.

Here's an opinion piece by Chuck Green who writes "Greener Pastures" for the Denver Post Aurora Sentinel...one of the more liberal papers in the country. Additionally, Mr. Green is a life long Democrat...so this is rather a stunning piece...

On a similar note, Tom Peters has said, "Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision,…Continue
There are many voices and sounds beckoning our hearts, minds and souls. Father is making a clarion call, a clear trumpet blast, calling us toward becoming increasingly one with Him. He is jealous for us in His desire to eliminate every sound, voice, or lover that gets in the way of us growing in His wisdom, stature and…Continue

Psalm 119:18 "Open Thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of Thy law."
Recently I prayed, "Lord, let me read the Bible like it's the very first time. Open my eyes to behold wondrous things out of Thy law." It works. I am seeing things I never saw, and it is going into my spirit. It's like I am being born again all over again! I am being convinced that we need to come to God like a child every day! What a…

Much of the popular success literature proclaims the power…Continue
