God wants to work through us to do the extraordinary. He allows storms to get our attention so that he can extend an invitation to us to do something amazing. As I look at Isaiah 61:1-3, I see people that are captivated by different storms. However, in these verses, Christ is doing some extraordinary things. Jesus is the Chief Apostle and Isaiah 61:1-3 speaks of his mission: “The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom...Read More

Matthew 18:23: “Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him. Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt. “The servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go. “But...Read More
America declared her release from the Kingdom of Britain on July 4, 1776. Today marks the celebration of that declaration of independence. It was an official statement to the British that America was no longer under her control. To them, it was a declaration of war. Many of the signers of the document were hunted down and lost their lives. However, we know how the story ended: America defeated the British government and, by God’s grace, has become one of the greatest nations in history. God has made us a nation of kings and priests (Revelation 1:6). A king has...Read More
Have you ever wondered why animals cannot talk? There are only two occurrences of animals talking in the Bible. These incidences are recorded in Genesis chapter 3 and Numbers chapter 22. We can glean some valuable insight from these passages of scripture. We see that God controls the tongue and gives us the power of speech. God gave the power of speech to man and not animals because it is a spiritual authority issue. When a man speaks to an animal, he is exercising authority over it. We invoke spiritual authority through our verbal command. When God created us in his image,...Read More
Many people do not see themselves as God sees them. How does God see us? God made us in his image as stated in Genesis 1:26. As he is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, he created us as spirit, soul, and body. We were created to be like him in character and to take on his attributes as a child does his parents. As long as Adam and Eve were in God’s presence, they could hold to the image that he had created them to be by looking at him. A spiritual disconnect between God and mankind occurred when they...Read More
There is an American short story about a man named Rip Van Winkle, who slept for twenty years. Rip is a likeable guy who loved solitary activities in the wilderness. He had a tendency to avoid all gainful labor, for which his nagging wife (Dame Van Winkle) chastises him as he allows his home and farm to fall into disarray due to his lazy neglect. One autumn day, Rip was escaping his wife’s nagging and wandering up the mountains with his dog. Hearing his name being shouted, Rip discovers a man dressed in old, Dutch clothing, carrying a keg...Read More
Babylon was defeated by the Persians and a new government was being established. The Persian king, Darius, appointed 120 governors over his affairs. King Darius appointed three men as vice presidents over these 120 governors. Daniel so distinguished himself among these three vice presidents that the king appointed him president over the other two. No matter how well we serve the Lord and holy we live, we will always have haters. These jealous men could not find any problems in Daniel’s work ethic so they attacked his religion. These haters decided to trick the king into signing a decree...Read More
Exodus 3:1-10. Moses had an unusual beginning. He was born during a time when the king of Egypt attempted to murder all the male babies to reduce the Jewish population. This satanic genocide is still at work today as we see so many or our men in gangs, on drugs, alcohol, struggling with illiteracy, and incarceration. Moses’ mother, being full of faith, put him in wicker-type basket sealed with tar and placed him in the river’s bulrushes. She had faith that this proper child would be protected and used by God. Pharaoh’s daughter arrived at the river, heard Moses crying,...Read More
When God created man, he placed Adam and Eve as managers (stewards) over his earth. He put them in charge of everything in the physical realm so that his spiritual government could be manifested in the natural realm through human government. As long as they followed his word, the authority of God’s word was released in the earth and his Kingdom initiatives were manifested. God’s original mandate for mankind is found in Genesis 1:26-28, which is still his mandate for us today. “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion...Read More
Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Today’s release is kinda different from what we have done the past two days. When we are in Christ, we cannot hold onto things that will hinder the life in Christ. In most cases, it is stuff from the past that we want to hang onto. The choice becomes easy when we...Read More
