Prophecy Series, Encouraging Words Only Fallacy

June 21, 2015

1

A very common doctrine among some of the spirit filled movement is that God gives encouraging words to us exclusively in this, the church age.  This doctrine trains people to give prophetic words that encourage others and that the prophets of the Old Testament and their ways are gone now. This doctrine is based on […]

Prophecy Series, Does Character Increase Gifting?

June 7, 2015

One thing I have noticed is when a person moves in the gifts of the spirit people automatically equate that this person moving in the gifts has a life of good character and is most likely very sound on all their doctrinal stands.  This is complete non-sense and a huge trap.  The church in California […]

Prophecy Series, Prophetic or Prophet

May 31, 2015

A common question concerning prophecy and prophets is just because someone prophesies once or twice are they a prophet?  So I hope to distinguish the difference between prophecy and the office of prophet. The Prophet The New Testament clearly distinguishes that there are two primary offices or positions of title amongst believers, the apostle and […]

So what is prophecy?  Prophecy is a revealing things or information of God that were hidden.  Simply speaking the Bible is a document of prophecy that reveals things that have happened and are to happen as well as things that please God and things that displease God.  I like to call the Bible the timeless […]

Revival is always about what a mighty and powerful God wants to do, seeing the His big plans and purposes for the individuals and the entire world He created. Too often we think revival is about our best plans placing together a strategy and idea of what we know from what we have learned and […]

Cliché Christianity, Can I Get an Amen?

April 26, 2015

Not sure who I will offend so I apologize ahead of time.  If God is returning for a glorious church without spot of wrinkle then one would assume that this church would not be a church filled with habitual language in prayers, teaching, and even prophecies, let alone all the Christian clichés. Matthew 6:7 But […]

Stories From A Pastor, Side Effects of Pride – Subtitled Prideful Free Agents

April 19, 2015

Seems like the pulpit messages about pride are few these days compared to what used to be heard years ago. In times past you might get questioned if you used the word “pride or proud” even about one of your children but not today, no risk at all. As the devil is described in Ezekiel […]

Whether in a local church setting, a work place, or in a marriage there are many times that an individual can find themselves in a situation where they are key to a particular aspect of duties, skills, or knowledge and real or seemingly not get recognized for their part. When this happens we feel unappreciated […]

Is Tradition Trumping The Word In Your Life? Part Two

April 5, 2015

This is my second post about traditions often taking precedent over the Word of God. What a day to make this post when so many are celebrating Easter by tradition and possibly not understanding what the Word of God says. The Apostle Paul said that we were to be happy in any way that Christ […]

Is Tradition Trumping The Word In Your Life?

March 29, 2015

Jesus said that a level of vanity is being exercised when our spiritual walk is living out commandments of men and repetitive behaviors, most of which we could label as traditions associated with a particular denomination or movement of people. A tradition in itself is not wrong but when a tradition trumps the actual Word […]
