A Storm is ComingWith a storm on the way, it is more important than ever to find the center of God will. That place is the safest place. It is the place where chaos turns to adventure; where fear has no place; where our houses will stand as a refuge for others. This is the place we want to be; so how do we find it?

God’s eternal will is for the restoration of the three things that He lost in man’s rebellion: His reign over our hearts, His intimacy with us, and His habitation in us. I believe that our pursuit of His purpose in these three areas will supernaturally propel us into His will for this strategic season.

This article relates to the restoration of God reign over our hearts. The articles and assessments for the remainder of this series can be found at the following locations:

Our Preparation as His Habitation

Our Preparation for Intimacy with Him

Many in the body of Christ are recognizing the inevitability of the storm. That recognition has created urgency for preparation; and a desire to know how we are doing in that preparation.  Assessing our preparation under His reign is critically important.

Is there a biblical way to assess our preparedness, and receive wisdom and revelation in the ways God would have us strengthen our house? I believe so. In fact, we are encouraged and commanded to do exactly that: Read the rest of this entry »

istock_2880338large_governmentTo those with ears to hear and eyes to see:

The America that was established by God to be the protection for His children; that they would have freedom to walk in the good work He prepared for them; this America has become the idol of the church. Please, think about this for a moment. Where do most in the church turn for security, prosperity, comfort and entertainment? Who influences our thinking and the way we do things? Are we counter-culture (changing the culture around us), or sub-culture (be changed by it)? Whose disciples have we become?

To those called to lead the church out of Her idolatry:

First, you must understand that leaders in the church are not just religious professionals. They are the followers of Jesus Christ that God has placed in positions of influence throughout society. To you, I plead: Consider your responsibility. Are you being a good and faithful steward? Or, have you compromised your commitment to the good work that God prepared for you – to glorify Him and prepare His Son’s Bride? Please, consider the awesome and eternal privilege and responsibility you are rejecting for your own glory and pleasure. Please, consider the eternal reward you are trading for such meager and temporary gain.

To those with a desire for restoration and transformation:

Repent and seek first the kingdom of God. Humble yourself. Deny yourself, take up your cross daily and follow after Jesus. Reject the spirit of Babylon, the great harlot, who steals the hearts of God’s elect. Love the LORD your God with all you heart, mind, soul and strength. Find your platoon – those that will stand with you, encouraging and exhorting you to be all that you have been created to be. Submit to the power that God has towards you; the power that is working in you to will and do to His good pleasure. Become a disciple of the Master, and a steward of the mysteries of God.

Finally, please, please, please, let me know how I can help you in this regard. This is the desire of my heart.

Humbly yours and forever His,

P.S. Let me know if you need the Bible passages that support what I have shared here.

A Storm is ComingIn anticipation of the coming storm, I have decided to request a house inspection. I want to know that my roof will not go flying off in the high winds and turbulence. I want to know that my house will not float away in the flood – to know that it has been securely anchored to a firm foundation. I want to be reasonably confident that the walls and ceilings of my house will hold up under the storm’s pressure; and that my whole house is water tight.

In anticipation of the coming storm, I have decided to request a heart inspection. I don’t want to be surprised by a weakness in my relationship with the Lord, a fault in my character, or a lack of faith in His keeping power. I want to know that I will trust Him and keep my eyes on Him, even in the most violent storm. More than anything, I want to know that I will remain steadfast in my commitment to His reign in my life.

I want the same for you. So, I hope you will join me in my request for an inspection. It’s actually a very simple process: Read the rest of this entry »

Military Salute from iStockSometimes I think, if God gave me salve for my eyes (Revelation 3:18), I might try to eat it. I’m serious! As much as I have “searched out the matter”, surrendering to the Holy Spirit’s destruction of my erroneous paradigms, I still catch myself thinking like the world. Consequently, I have grown more suspicious of the way I think; and I believe that is a good thing.

1Corinthians 2:16 proclaims “we have the mind of Christ”. I believe this is the truth; but, what I also believe is that we have become so dependent and secure in our own mind, that we do not use the supernatural and holy mind we have been given.

We have not pressed on to lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus laid hold of us (Philippians 3:12). Like so many things we have been given by God, we have been passive in our laying hold of the mind of Christ. This is part of a deception meant to trap us in the worldly limits of our unrenewed mind.

Thankfully, the truth will make us free (John 8:32). The word of God is alive and powerful (Hebrews 4:12). Let’s embrace that life, power, truth and freedom as we find it in the following passages. Read the rest of this entry »
