12 steps to Freedom from the Religious System

🔊 Listen to Post I can’t begin to tell you how important it is for you as a believer to find freedom from the religious system.  What I am about to share is not just another teaching for the Body of Christ to read. It is the squeezed and pressed nectar of almost 30 years serving my King. This teaching was organically (by the Holy Spirit) produced in much fire, testing and trials. I say this not to exalt myself as a great...

Singing the Song of the Lord in a Strange Land

I am sure you are saying to yourself what a strange title for a Christian article. The reality is that most of the Body of Christ who has chosen to follow the cloud in the 21st Century finds itself in a strange land.

Lessons from the Cave: Responding to Prophetic Delay

His dreams of fulfilled destiny lay wrecked before him. From the heights of being anointed for the throne, and of a famous victory over one of Israel’s most forbidding enemies David was now thrust from Saul’s service into a fugitive life. Far from the comforts of the palace he found himself fighting for his survival alone in the wilderness. But this time, instead of a Philistine giant, the threat was posed by the king of Israel...

Why do Bad things happen to Good people – a Response

My Dear Brothers In the Lord, If I thought a christian band aid would help I would say to you (as” did Robert Schuller), “Tough Times don’t Last but Tough People Do….Hogwash!!!!!!!!!  Sometimes tough times are like the EverReady bunny..they go on and on and on…ad infinitum. I no longer subscribe to fairy tale Christianity where there is always light at the end of the tunnel or a happy ending to the story!...
