Deliverance From Bitterness by Francis Frangipane

(En Español) There are two conditions of the heart no one can hide: one is when the heart is filled with love and the other when we are infected with bitterness. Either condition can take over our thoughts and both can filter our entire view of life. As followers of Jesus Christ, we must make our highest quest to possess hearts full of God’s love. Indeed, how successful we are at revealing Christ’s love is the true measure of our… Read more

The Constancy of God by Graham Cooke

Recently, I was looking through my meditation journals from around ten years ago, when my world, as I knew it, was coming to an end. What saved my everything was what I was learning about who God wanted to be for me. I didn’t know it then, but those crippling circumstances actually became the basis for my reinvention as a man and a ministry. I found a few quotes that I wrote about the nature of God to me. The… Read more

Going To Hell with Ted Haggard by Michael Cheshire

If you have not seen the interview with Robert Ricciardelli and Ted Haggard Click Here. Please comment on show as well on the website. Michael Cheshire’s article and personal experience below is very good. What I learned about grace and redemption through my friendship with a Christian pariah. December 3, 2012 I didn’t plan to care about Ted Haggard. After all, I have access to Google and a Bible. I heard about what he did and knew it was wrong…. Read more

The Covenant of Christ Alone by T. Austin-Sparks

When God speaks of a new covenant or agreement, He makes the first one obsolete (out of use). And what is obsolete (out of use and annulled because of age) is ripe for disappearance and to be dispensed with altogether. (Hebrews 8:13 AMP) This letter to the Hebrews sets forth the all-inclusive revolution or reconstitution which God made when He brought His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world – that is, the religious revolution. This revolution, which was rejected by… Read more

Suffering That Brings Forth Life by Robert Ricciardelli

It is difficult if not impossible to grow without suffering. Without the contrast and growth that suffering provides, you cannot experience the joy and peace that you deserve. Embrace it when it comes, cherish it, and go to God with all of it. He will embrace you with love and compassion while giving you the courage to look deeply at your suffering and embrace it in His strength. Through grace, revelation, and understanding you will be able to move toward… Read more

Allah Does not Belong to Islam by Helen Louise Herndon

This article first appeared in the Viewpoint column of the Christian Research Journal, volume 25, number 1 (2002). For further information or to subscribe to the Christian Research Journal go to: http://www.equip.org Since September 11, scores of commentaries have been written about terrorism and Islam, many from Christian leaders. It is remarkable how writers unfamiliar with the Arabic language have ventured comments, if not judgments, relating to the term Allah. It is as if anything to do with Allah must… Read more

Do not be afraid! by Richard Dahlstrom

You can’t go anywhere in the world these days without a reason to be afraid staring you in the face.   Here in Germany, people are worried about all the money they’re giving to other parts of Europe as an attempt to hold the economic EU together.  This is taking it’s toll here in a similar way that the fears of the fiscal cliff are taking their toll in America, especially as the clock ticks and we hear nothing other than… Read more

Reading Both Books for Building Better Bridges by Richard Dahlstrom

One of the things that’s most annoying about what’s come to be called “Christianity” in western civilization is its tendency to create people who are withdrawn from the real world.  This happens because of a false understanding of what “the world” means in scriptures like this one.  The result is an inherent suspicion of anything other than the Bible, “Christian” books, “Christian” music, “Christian” schools, blah blah blah. The fruit of this mindset is a group of people who are… Read more

Reflections from the Man in the Mirror by Robert Ricciardelli

We are all living in a fast-paced, hard driven, “make it happen” world. I have operated in this world for most of my life outside of a Kingdom worldview, even as a Christ follower. By the grace of God, the Lord took me out of the Matrix several years ago and I was able to see the world’s systems for what they were, the good, the bad, and the ugly within them. Through continued trials and errors, Father firmly establishes… Read more
