Perception: Creating Your Reality by Alan Smith

Matt. 12:22-24: Then one was brought to Him who was demon-possessed, blind and mute; and He healed him, so that the blind and mute man both spoke and saw. And all the multitudes were amazed and said, "Could this be the Son of David?" Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, "This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons."Perception: what a “word”! How can this “word” be worthy of writing about, you might ask? Well, I believe this “word” is the most powerf … [Read more...]

God is Not in Control By Robert Ricciardelli

Presuppositions are not absolute truthThe title "God is Not in Control" may at first glance shock you, but let me explain. There are many believers that have fallen into a deterministic world-view. This view presupposes that all things regarding the people of God have already been determined, and that He is in control of all things. This presupposition directly opposes the reality of what the Word of God actually teaches us about the Father and His choosing to give freedom of choice to His … [Read more...]

You are Launching Your Eternal Journey by Robert Ricciardelli

The Way, the Truth, the Life in Christ is not a place of landing, but a place of launching. It is a journey of knowing, and the Way of knowing has no ending as it is a constant flow of life and of being the life. Being in Christ along the Way does not end in death as death is just a departure from one dimension of life and into another. God knew about you before you were even shaped in the womb. Before you saw the light of day God had arranged for you to be a part of him, His light and love to … [Read more...]

The Power of Fusion with God and Each Other by Robert Ricciardelli

We are quickened through Christ to live a life that is born from above. We are connected to God and each other which collectively brings forth the fullness of life on earth as it is in heaven. The divine fusion of God in each of us and through each of us gives us experience in the collective and connective power of God. You will never find spiritual enlargement as an isolated, separate individual, but in relationship with others we can witness the expansion of the unseen power of God manifest … [Read more...]

…ifs, ands, and buts… by David VanCronkhite

Love, the Gospels say, makes all the difference. Supernatural love. Agape love. That kind of love present only when there’s been a supernatural impartation of DNA from the Father to His children.Agape is the DNA that changes the heart and begins the process of making a person human as God intended. That’s because God is Agape, therefore in search of man desiring to begin this eternal relationship in the now. Agape is love, the mystery of what allows us to love, the ability to imitate God and … [Read more...]

Say Goodbye to the ‘Armor Bearer’ Mentality by Lee Grady

Charles became the man’s “armor bearer.”The man never took Charles on hospital visits, involved him in ministry assignments or prayed with him. Instead, Charles was expected to carry the pastor’s brie … [Read more...]

Dying So That We May Truly Live by Robert Ricciardelli

There is a day in which we must die. Die to our self-focus, our opinions, preferences, tastes, and will. We must die to the world and its approval or critique, and die to the approval, blame or shame of even of our family and friends. We must look at our lives as one with God and one in God. When we can truly die so that we may live the freedom life that God has designed for us, we can then show ourselves approved to God alone.Do you see dying to self a positive thing?It is important to … [Read more...]

Jesus Looks Beyond Politics by Lee Grady

 In today’s hot-headed presidential debate, it might be better for some of us to keep our mouths shut.People didn't vote in ancient Israel, nor did they put “KICK THE ROMANS OUT!” bumper stickers on their chariots. But there was plenty of political anger seething in Palestine, even without Fox News, CNN and MSNBC around to stir the pot.Jews especially abhorred tax-collectors, since (1) tax-collectors were usually thieves, and (2) they worked for the hated Roman Empire. Yet when … [Read more...]
