The Political Illusion by R.J. Rushdoony

The Political IllusionBy Rev. R.J. Rushdoony – bioIt would be absurd to deny the importance of politics, but it is also very dangerous to over-rate it. one of the persistent problems of christendom has been the tendency to over-rate both church and state. In Numbers 18:21-26, we see that God orders the tithe to be paid, not to the priests but to the Levites, whose varied functions included education. Thus, worship per se received mainly a tithe of the tithe. At the same time, the civil t … [Read more...]

All Warriors are Anti-Religion by Graham Cooke

an excerpt from "Coming Into Alignment"Heaven will always confront man-made spirituality. The best place for the enemy to hide is always in the guise of something spiritual. He masquerades as an angel of light. As we saw in the time of Jesus, He was constantly opposed by religious people who were fronting a system that they themselves had developed over many years.In one confrontation with Jesus, He spoke to them about the fact that they “transgressed the commandments of God for the s … [Read more...]

God Does Not Want Us to Be Judgmental by Francis Frangipane

A religion without love is an abomination to God. The church needs to learn that God desires love and compassion, not merely an adherence to ritual and sacrifice. Thus, Jesus said His Father's house would be a "house of prayer for all nations" (Mark 11:17). True prayer is born of love and comes in the midst of sin and need. It comes not to condemn, but to cover.All nations sin. All cultures have seasons of moral decline and spiritual malaise. Yet these periods can become turning points if, … [Read more...]

Releasing Wisdom and Creativity Through Your Life by Robert Ricciardelli

Wisdom and creativity are inseparable, in fact, creativity is a manifestation of wisdom in the context of excellence and integrity. Wisdom is personified in Christ, and the companion of God in the creation of all things. Therefore wisdom and creativity must … [Read more...]

Faith Without Humility is Going the Wrong Way by Robert Ricciardelli

One of the greatest indicators of spiritual maturity is to realize that there are things that you just do not know. It is the understanding that the more you learn of God, the greater His majesty and mystery becomes. People living in the divine ways of the Spirit are always humble and forever beginners. Those who are pride filled "know it alls", always right and never wrong, are far from the heart of God. If you are not humble, one knows you have not experienced the Holy One which utterly … [Read more...]

Overcoming Our Presuppositions by Robert Ricciardelli

Locked and loaded in our presuppositions can cut off meaningful conversations, relationships, and truths that might be discovered through the perspectives of others. The suppositional truth we have adopted may not be absolute truth and if we become constant learners, we will evolve towards greater truth and understanding of God, ourselves, and the world around us. We must be willing to challenge our belief systems and allow for the Spirit of God to sweep away the false from our minds to make … [Read more...]

Be Present for Every Moment of Your Life by Robert Ricciardelli

Ambassadors for God do not focus on end time perspectives because they are engaged with the NOW times with God and His eternal Kingdom. They know they are not promised tomorrow, they have no fear of the future, and they view each day as an opportunity to love, to serve, and to presently manifest the substance of heaven on planet earth. They know there is no turning back, they know that their future is yet to unfold, and they know that they have been prepared and empowered to fully be present in … [Read more...]

The Mobile Life of a Traveling Soul by James Ryle

“The highway of the upright turns aside from evil; whoever guards his way preserves his life.” (Proverbs 16:17, English Standard Version).For the past few days we have discovered and discussed what it means to experience God’s Presence, and how God has provided us with practical ways to do so. Here is an illustration I think will be helpful to you as you move forward.Recall the many times you have driven along the highway. You travel at varying speeds, moving in and out of traffic, chan … [Read more...]

Believe in the Power of God by Robert Ricciardelli

Sooner or later, man has always had to decide whether he worships his own power or the power of God, whether he relies on what he can do rather than what God can do through his life. True success comes only through our abiding in the glory of God and in the Spirit realm of wisdom and revelation. The eyes of our understanding must be enlightened so that we have clarity of purpose, hope in the inheritance we have received, and operative knowledge of  God's ways and the unlimited power within us. … [Read more...]

Surrendering to the Mind of God by Robert Ricciardelli.

The western mindset continues to fail us. We have not been practically or systematically taught to see as God would have us to see. The tragic results include rationalism, secularism, and atheism on the Left and legalism, exclusivity, and cognitive rigidity on the Right. Neither is serving us well, and neither represents the grace, love, and mercy of God. Religion has been preoccupied with telling people what to know more than how to know, and telling people what to see more than how to see. We … [Read more...]
