The picture of God’s Earth and His purpose is very different from the world as created and ruled by satan and his dark forces. Here, all […]

Feeding His Lambs

To feed followers of Christ would be to feed them truth that helps them turn from wrong paths and turn toward the true path of facing the cross daily and denying themselves daily. You will be persecuted if you are helping to gain more territory for God’s rule by helping others...

Worry About God’s House

Prayer should be natural to us. In fact, I talk to God all day long! Until now, you have been very attentive to your strongholds, but now it is time to reverse this. A wonderful way to direct our hearts to God is to see things from God’s perspective...

Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint. Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle. Proverbs 23:1-5 Food, money, things—they are all alike. In denying yourself until you are inside the boundaries of hunger and fullness for food and drink, inside the boundaries for money, you will want less...
