Stranger in a Strange Land

No, I didn’t write this amazing piece. It’s part of the Torah readings (First Fruits of Zion : The Weekly eDrash) I receive weekly, going through the Word, in sync with the Jewish people. But I can honestly say that this article came in time and gave me a full and even greater perspective of …

When Egypt becomes your ally!

““Ah, stubborn children,” declares the Lord, “who carry out a plan, but not mine, and who make an alliance, but not of my Spirit, that they may add sin to sin; who set out to go down to Egypt, without asking for my direction, to take refuge in the protection of Pharaoh and to seek …

It’s Time for the Church to Have a Voice

– Nathan Shaw Pentecost gave the Church a voice. The voice had authority. The voice penetrated to the heart of Jerusalem (Acts 5:28, 6:7). People had two options: hear the voice or resist the voice. There was no force or manipulative coercion. Each person had to make their own free will decision. Those who responded …

Stop Saying ‘I Love You’

As I was looking for the most misused words “I love you”, I found this post by an unknown author as I could not discover the origin but had to post it. So remember, the “I” in the post is not me. The words "I love you" are losing their impact when people say it …

A Generous Consecration: Resetting the altars of our lives

By Alan Scott There is something about this national moment that is resetting the altars of our lives. It feels poignant. Everything stripped back. It’s like a cleansing of the temple. God is resetting worship. He is restoring worship and reclaiming worship in this moment. The reordering of worship overturns the current popular practices of …

Fatherhood and Answers

Fatherhood does not give the answers, but it carries the question, so it can rest, develop and come to existence! If you ever wonder why there comes no (direct) answers from The Father on your questions, be sure that He carries that question (as a womb), so it can rest, develop and come to existence! …

Compassion based on a Lie isn’t God’s Love

Posted on May 28, 2020 by Wanda Alger  The consistent argument that is causing such division within the Body of Christ concerning the pandemic seems to be whether or not we truly love others.

Ignorance is killing us!

Reading: Matthew 24 and Isaiah 22 A warning, speaking out in preparation for “the news”! I’m pretty sure that the evil that is covering the nations today like a tsunami can not be “voted” away!

When the Lord has touched your Mouth…

To those that carry the New It’s amazing how well received you are if you play along and help maintaining the Old, although carrying the New. But the moment they realize you didn’t come to confirm the Old but to Declare the New, silence and rejection becomes your part. It’s hard when the values of …

DON’T LET A SPIRIT OF FEAR GET ATTACHED TO YOUR PRAYERS!

It’s time to arise into the place of your calling

By Ron McGatlin  Much of the western world has adjusted to bondage that gradually overtook them in the name of freedom.
