The “Name It & Claim It” Deception

There is an ungodly teaching that has surfaced over the past several years that has had a detrimental effect on believers to this day.  We are warned by Paul that there will be false teachings and doctrines that will tickle our ears and satisfy our flesh (2 Timothy 4:3-4).  In recent years this has been the "Name it and Claim it" deception. The internet is saturated with teachings about declaring what you want and you will have it.  Most include a telephone number or website where you can "sow into your vision" to speed things up.  Sadly, what you are…

Where’s Your Hope?

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.  Hebrews 11:1 "Don't get your hopes up." How many of us have grown up hearing this adage?  These five words have drastically hindered the course of our lives.  And no, I'm not exaggerating.  How much of the abundant life in Christ has been snuffed out due to these five words...? Let's use the Word of God to challenge this poor advice; advice we unfortunately still adhere to today.  In the verse above we see that hope is the foundation…

God’s Generosity Towards You…

Good day! As I sat visiting with God this morning, I thanked Him for His generosity towards us.  I began to ponder all Jesus did for us on the cross, and was overwhelmed with gratitude and love for Him!  God's Love and generosity was demonstrated and made evident to us by what Jesus took to the cross on our behalf - sin and it's consequences: sickness, disease, poverty, bondage and death (Galatians 3:13). The Lord reminded me of how one receives from another is often indicative of how we receive from Him.  How many times has someone wanted to bless…

Offense…Will You Take The Bait?

"...Then many will take offense, betray one another and hate one another..."  Matthew 24:10 As I have already mentioned, my blog may offend some...simply by speaking scripture.  If you are feeling irritated, angry or offended, I encourage you to continue reading. How do I know that some may be feeling angry?  Because I've been there.  I was not only an angry person, but one who was enraged.  I lived with a hidden enemy for decades...until I was provoked.  Then hatred spewed forth like a raging volcano.  Enraged is defined as angered, inflamed, maddened, infuriated, stirred to violent anger.  To enrage or to infuriate is to be provoked…

Give and Take…

Greetings! One of the first revelations I had of God's goodness towards us was in 2005, when I was in church singing a song that may be familiar to many... "You give and take away, You give and take away...my heart will choose to say, Lord blessed be Your Name!"  As I sang this chorus, I heard Holy Spirit say, "Yes, I do give and take away...but not as the world thinks.  I give life and all good gifts, and I take away grief, depression, addiction, bondage, disease...  The world thinks I take away health, jobs, marriages, children and all…
