Our Christian Pantheon

There is a need that is continually on my heart: That Christ be known and magnified as He is in scripture. I fear there isn’t enough of this among Christians. Many godly things and subjects draw bigger crowds than Jesus: the end times, miracles, and growing leaders; social or doctrinal contoversies; evangelism, social justice, and…

The End of America? Review of “The Harbinger” by Jonathan Cahn

Recently, two different people asked me to read The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn.  What follows is a digest of my review.  Reading the digest will give you the gist of what I think but I recommend reading the full review. *** Will America suffer devastation in the not too distant future?  Was 9/11 merely a warning…

It Is Finished

Image courtesy of Darrell Creswell http://darrellcreswell.wordpress.com/ This morning at church, it seemed like worship had a hard time getting off the ground.  I don’t know if any of you can relate to what I’m saying.  It just seemed like people weren’t engaging the Lord or His Spirit wasn’t manifesting much or something.  I started praying, asking…

Visions of Glory

When Ezekiel first sees the glory of the Lord, it is not associated with any temple.  This is unique, for the other two visions of God’s glory involve temples: the earthly temple, the temple judged for Israel’s sins, and the new temple, wherein all things are restored and brought to fullness.  But in chapter one,…

Crux

Get Your Head on Straight…er

The following is a post by Bread for the Bride blog author, Cheryl McGrath.  Cheryl is a sensitive and thoughtful writer whose richness in the word of God is rare.  Cheryl disagreed with my recent post, “Get Your Head on Straight.”  (Please read my post before reading Cheryl’s). After discussing things, I asked her to…

Seeing for Ourselves

My wife and I moved from Texas to Washington in March of 2000.  Just before moving, we went to our Wednesday night prayer meeting.  Someone was sharing about how Mary Magdalene saw the risen Christ and was sent to tell the disciples about the One she had seen (John 20:17, 18).  As I listened, the…

Get Your Head on Straight

“But I want you to know that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of the woman, and God is the head of Christ” (1 Cor. 11:3). God is Head of all.  No matter how many intermediate heads exist they lead in a chain to God.  The woman is under…

Sin-tervention

Image from Intervention 911 Addiction is one of the purest expressions of sin I can think of.  The addict is a person compelled to do something that gratifies them but doesn’t make them happier or healthier.  This is the essence of sin.  For this reason, I sometimes think about addiction and sin because the parallels…

Wonderful Things in Your Law

In this post, I’d like to feature one of my booklets, “Wonderful Things in Your Law.”  This booklet began with questions: How did Jesus fulfill the law?  What does it mean for the law to be fulfilled?  These were things I grasped with my heart but had never reasoned out.  The need to reason them…
