I'm not talking about the screw-ball "Promotion and prosperity are yours if you type AMEN and share" garbage that I see every single day on my news feed. (I'm not going to lie, I chuckle every time I see … Continue reading 3 Errors God is Correcting in the Modern Prophetic Movement
Prayer seems to be a forgotten art in the lives of many Christians. All too often, Church prayer meetings go unattended or abandoned altogether and prayer closets are filled with cobwebs. What happened to prayer? I think I may have put my finger on what caused the flame to dwindle on the altar of prayer, and how we can reignite the fire.
Hope is dangerous. Where there is hope there is genuine risk.

For some, prophetic ministry has been a major source of confusion, consternation, and chaos. It can be difficult to discern what is genuine and what is non-sense, and because of the difficulties inherent to the prophetic, some have set it aside altogether. Has someone ever given you a prophetic word or shared a story about … Continue reading How to Discern and Operate in Genuine Prophetic Ministry.
In recent days, you've doubtless seen several articles and videos addressing the Christchurch shooter. Much of the discussion is focused on one thing: "Who do we blame?" I've seen articles from every side of the political and religious spectrum saying the shooter was a rightwing extremist, a leftwing extremist, a Christian, an atheist, a supporter … Continue reading The Christchurch Terrorist and The Tactics of Satan
I recently had a particularly negative experience trying to share the Gospel. I saw a man with a walker in a parking lot. I stopped my car and approached him.
