Can the Church Prevail Against the Matrix?

Recently I have observed the Body of Christ functioning with some seriously irregular tendencies. People who claim to stand for Godly principles continue to make bad decisions. They want to do good but they continue to do bad. What’s wrong? The problem lies with the values of this age (the Matrix). I think the movie is very powerful because it shows what this world is about. The secular world we live in (the Matrix) is about keeping...

Two Types of Leaders: Which Will You Become? by Frank Viola

In our leadership-frenzied Christian culture, I’ve opted for a different label for leadership. That label is influence.

As I have grown in the Lord, I no longer get too excited by what people say, now I...

The Harness of the Lord (Prophetic Leadership for 21st Century)

I remember receiving this word through brother Tom Bailey many MANY years ago while attending a house meeting in Crozet, Virginia. At that time the word came to me that I was a young rebellious colt as pictured in this vision. Indeed it has since proven to be a genuine word from the Lord. Yet, in God’s providence and grace, He lassoed me with cords of love as I ran “free” and He led me into His corral to be trained....
