Wealth and Heirship and Envy by R.J. Rushdoony

By Rev. R.J. Rushdoony – bioOne of the most powerful, corrosive, and destructive forces in all of history is very much at work today in all the world: envy. Envy is, in terms of Biblical faith, very clearly a sin, but, in the modern age, it comes disguised as a virtue. The motive force in much of the equalitarianism of our day is not a sense of brotherhood but an envy which seeks to level all things. Envy also masks itself as a concern, very commonly, for social justice, and it lays claims to … [Read more...]

Traditions Can Get in God’s Way by Robert Ricciardelli

See to it that you do not become captive to human traditions and deceptive worldly principles rather than on Christ Himself. Do not depend on methods that may have worked in the past or expect miracles to be exclusive to historic places where they once appeared. God is the God of the here and the now. The past is over now, and the old places have been vacated and hold no power. The institutional traditions can never fully support you and history is never a force for today. Those who seek God … [Read more...]

The Power of a Thankful Heart by James Ryle

“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.” (Colossians 2:6-7).Several extraordinary happen to us when we purpose to always be thankful.First – the power of a thankful heart keeps you from the destructive influence of bitterness, for it lifts you to a higher perspective and lets you see things from God’s point of view. Yes, people will treat yo … [Read more...]

How To Measure a Transformed Existence by Robert Ricciardelli

When our hearts have been transformed by the Spirit of Christ we see all things quite differently. We have the ability to respond to the world in ways beyond ourselves, and when we go beyond the cares of self, we want to see others set free to become healed and whole. There is a desire to become a better person, to grow in love, compassion and forgiveness. The Word of God within us urges us to grow into the likeness of Christ for which we have been created. When we actually engage in … [Read more...]

Faith is the Destroyer of Fear by Robert Ricciardelli

We need to quit being afraid, and begin to step out of the boat and onto the water. Because no matter what it costs, the Kingdom of God coming through our life in the here and now is worth it, both for us and for all the people we touch. Fear will try to direct us away from the purposes of God. Faith allows for the Spirit of God to guide our every step as the Divine Navigator within us leads us from fear and into the promised land. There is nothing in this world that has defeated more people and … [Read more...]

Life of Stewardship and Not Ownership by Robert Ricciardelli

If you look at yourself as being one with God who holds the keys to life, your life becomes one of stewardship rather than ownership. Stewardship is the truest perspective for those who have entrusted themselves to their God. If you have debts, whose debt is it when you are in union with God? Whose money is it? What about the challenges you face? As stewards for the Almighty, we never have to take complete ownership of our debts, money, or challenges. Humble and faithful people of God are joint … [Read more...]

You are an Agent of the Divine by Robert Ricciardelli

You are an agent of the Divine, you are an agent for God. Through the power of God's presence, you have the opportunity to represent the loving image of God by how you live, how you love, and how you relate with others. Think of yourself as an incandescent power, an illuminated lighthouse for the works of God on earth revealing His glory. We all flow from one foundation and are filled with unlimited potential of abiding love, truth, and creativity. We must accept that the creative pulse within … [Read more...]

This Amazing Freedom We Have Been Given! by James Ryle

“Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you.” (Galatians 5:1, The Message).Jesus said, “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.” Why then is it that so many who preach and teach the truth seem so bound up with religious shackles? Not only that, they seem equally intent on seeing to it that others are as bound up as they are. What’s that all about? It’s about control.There is something dreadfu … [Read more...]

Passionate Self is the Seed for Glory by Robert Ricciardelli

It is God's desire for us to enjoy the life we have been given and the fruits of our labor all the days of our lives, for it is our inheritance. God has given us the power to run the uniquely designed race that He has called each of us to run. When we truly understand and embrace this, we won’t be tempted to compare or wish we had what someone else has. You won’t think, “If only I had what they had in talent or opportunity." Be thankful for what you do have, and in the power of God through you, m … [Read more...]

I AM a God of Fullness, Not Measure by Tricia Exman

We have SO many ways that we "measure", but God only has one.  Under the Old Covenant, God's Law talks about using honest scales and measures.  In the New Covenant, we are told that we will be measured by the same measure that we use.What does all that mean?I remember about 2 ½ years ago, the Lord really started talking to me about all of this.  He began to show me all the external things I had used as a measure of my value and worth before I surrendered my life to Him.  He talked to me a … [Read more...]
