All we like sheep have gone astray;We have turned, every one, to his own way;And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. (Isaiah 53:6 NKJV) Today, this prophecy from the book of Isaiah still rings true. Many Christians today have used the liberty of being redeemed from the Law of Moses to live... Continue Reading →
One of the three main missions of the Holy Spirit in the earth, as described by Christ before His ascension, is to expose the condemnation that has been decreed upon the ruler of this present world system that men might separate themselves and not be condemned through adulteration with it. The Holy Spirit has shown... Continue Reading →
Romans 12:2 Today I was listening to a song by Minister Fred Hammond called “How Do You Love That Way”. It is beautiful to me how Fred articulates his experience of being washed over with GOD’s love. The lyrics of the song illuminated how much more my love has to grow to truly reflect my... Continue Reading →
A Christian brother of mine, that happens to be White, recently asked me to help him understand the grievances I have with identifying America as a Nation founded on Christian values. Though he and I are siblings through rebirth in Christ, he recognized that we had different perspectives on America's history and its correlation to... Continue Reading →
The journey and the destination are one. You get to your destination by thoughtfully taking many individual steps. You hit your distant target by taking careful aim. Wae must be mindful of how we travel through each day. There are universal laws in effect which cannot be circumnavigated because they are ordained of YAHWEH. There... Continue Reading →
I like to keep my heart conditioned for the word of GOD. What I mean by that is I like to keep my heart in a place of gratefulness to GOD, trusting with confidence in Him, at rest in the assurance of His provision and providence for my life. The fires of sin burning in... Continue Reading →
The Universal Church building in Brazil with an estimated cost of $300,000,000.00 We are called to be in the world but not of the world. The church is falling short of the glory of GOD not because it has been left in the world, but because it is mostly of the world. (For clarity when... Continue Reading →
In those first moments of clarity after YAHWEH had brought Adam and Eve together, they were naked before each other in the presence of light and were unashamed. The reason they were unashamed was not due to them having perfect bodies, there were no other bodies around for comparison. That line of thought takes us... Continue Reading →

This morning I was thinking about how heavy and obstructed our hearts can become from the disappointments of life on earth. From those that love us to those who despise us, everyone has mishandled us at one time or another. That does not even include the times we have let ourselves down in not being courageous enough to follow our own heart when feeling its compelling. With each new day, there is a need for abounding grace, for us to forgive others and to forgive ourselves. An over inflated sense of self through the mechanism selfish pride often puts us at the center of everything, causing us to be offended at things which are not even directed at us personally. We are often mishandled because those around us are inhibited by struggles of their own.
There is a strength of love which compels us to esteem others higher than ourselves, which finds reward in the act of giving to others without noting it inwardly as a loan, which keeps us from being easily offended or angered, which allows us to live in humbleness of mind and meekness. This strength comes from drinking from the well of GOD’s spirit. It is the overflow of what He is pouring into us from being in His presence being offered to those around us. As I thought on this dynamic today, I was reminded of this post I wrote a while back. I pray it is strength to you.
Life on earth is traumatic. Sin creates debt, and the hearts of everyone have been heavily taxed. There is a saying, “Hurt people, hurt others.” We have all been impacted at one time or another by the rejection, hate, envy, covetousness, strife, and contentions flowing from all the broken hearts around us. The lifestyles of extremism in the world today are a symptom of this brokenness. The failed attempts to self-medicate and to compensate for the wearied hearts are evident in the cries for more…more…more. Ecclesiastes 4:1-2:
“So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter. Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive.”
