John 13:8 -- Peter said to Him, "You shall never wash my feet!" Jesus answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me."
Peter could not imagine Jesus wanting to wash his feet -- his shocked reaction being "Lord, how can You wash my feet!"
Jesus says to him: "Peter, if I don't wash your feet, you have no part with Me." What the Lord was actually saying to Peter was,…Continue

Leviticus 10:8-10 8The LORD then spoke to Aaron, saying, 9"Do not drink wine or strong drink, neither you nor your sons with you, when you come into the tent of meeting, so that you will not die—it is a perpetual statute throughout your generations— 10and so as to make a distinction between the holy and the profane, and between the unclean and the clean,…Continue

Psalm 119:62 - "At midnight I will rise to give thanks to You, because of Your righteous judgments."
Midnight usually meant halfway between dark and the breaking of the light or the midle-point of the night before the light could break through.
THE MIDNIGHT HOUR IS WHERE OUR VICTORY LIES!
The midnight hour was the time that the…Continue

John 5:14 - "Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee."
In saying this, Jesus shows that sin causes the tragedies that come into our lives. The reason for holiness in the life of the believer is that when we give in to sin, we yield ourselves to Satan, the author of that sin. Yielding to sin is yielding to…Continue

Exodus 16:4 - Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law or no.
GOD TOOK A LITTLE, INSIGNIFICANT MATTER, THE FOOD THEY ATE--AND USED IT TO SEE IF THEY WOULD LISTEN TO HIM OR NOT. HE TOLD THEM HOW MUCH OF IT TO GATHER, WHEN TO GATHER AND WHEN NOT TO, AND WHAT TO DO…Continue

Acts 1:4,8 - He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for what the Father had promised. But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.
THIS POWER CAME THROUGH AN ENCOUNTER WITH GOD. SOME, BECAUSE OF THEIR FEAR OF ERROR, HAVE SAID IT'S IMPROPER TO SEEK FOR AN EXPERIENCE WITH GOD.
FOR DECADES THE CHURCH HAS BEED GUILTY OF…Continue

Isaiah 4:2-6 2In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth will be the pride and the adornment of the survivors of Israel. 3It will come about that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy—everyone who is recorded for life in Jerusalem. 4When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and purged the bloodshed of Jerusalem from her midst, by the…Continue

The parable of the talents emphasizes that not all believers are given the same level of callings and gifts. The man who travels to the far country is Jesus and the servants represent us. A talent is a measure of money that represents the level of our call and gifts. Two important points in this parable:
1. All of the servants are given something -- this tells us that there is…Continue

Wickedness, garbage, gossip or slander
That has been poured into our ears,
So that we might hear…

Matthew 6:33 -- "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things whall be added to you."
We all have things that we perceive that we need. What does God have to say to us about these concerns?
According to Matthew 6:31, He tells us, "Do not worry." God cares about us having these things. He…Continue

Just because we walk and talk does not mean we are truly awake. Zechariah was not sleeping when an angel roused him "as a man who is awakened from his sleep" (Zechariah 4:1).
Perhaps we too need to be shaken from our slumber to possess the promises of God! Amazingly, in spite of all the signs, wonders, and warnings announcing that we are truly in the last…Continue

THE WORD TELLS US THAT GOD SHOWS HIMSELF STRONG IN BEHALF OF THOSE WHOSE HEARTS ARE "PERFECT" TOWARD HIM (2 CHRONICLES 16:9). "PERFECT" DOESN'T MEAN THAT WE HAVE TO DO EVERTHING JUST RIGHT AND LIVE WITHOUT MAKING A MISTAKE. IT MEANS "DEVOTED" -- A HEART CONSECRATED, DEDICATED, LOYAL AND FAITHFUL TO GOD.
WHO IS FAITHFUL? THE ONE WHO SPEND HIS TIME DOING WHAT GOD HAS CALLED HIM TO DO. OR AS JESUS PUT IT, THE ONE…Continue

Have you ever thought about the fact that you could create opportunity for God? That you could attract Him or draw Him to you by simply doing something out of the ordinary -- something that demands RISKY FAITH?
There have been individuals throughout Biblical history who made difficult decisions to do something that would change the course of history and create opportunities for God to move. These individuals made it…Continue
