Is There An Orphan Within?

For many individuals it is something that we don't want to acknowledge, but there is a reality in which many people struggle, both in the Body of Christ as well as in the world, and that struggle is rooted in an Orphan Spirit. By “orphan”, I am referring to a struggle...

Why Traditional Religion Is Threatened by Women in Ministry

Last week, J. Lee Grady asked a pointed question in his Fire in My Bones column: What part of Galatians 3:28 don’t we understand? Galatians 3:28 declares, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Lee went on to debunk “6 Gender Myths in the Church.” Some may say Lee was asking for it with the headline and even the subject matter, for that matter. His heart may have been on his sleeve as he defended the God-given rights of women to…

Defeating an Unbelievable Enemy of Your Faith

With Babylon rising, cruel bondage is a reality for many in the body of Christ. Many blood-bought believers are running what feels like an endless rat race that steals their energy—and often their dreams and visions of a better tomorrow. I assure you there is a way of escape, a path to rest, a sure route to enter your Promised Land. But there’s a behemoth standing in between you and God’s best for your life. It’s an enemy so insidious that it’s difficult to recognize and perhaps more difficult to cast out, because its very nature is to rob the…

Why Gay Kiss-Ins Will Never Sway Anyone’s View

If you run in pro-life circles, you probably have seen intercessors with a red strip of tape across their mouth that simply says “LIFE.” It’s called a Silent Siege. These pro-lifers are identifying with the silence of the preborn who have no voice to defend themselves. Organized by Bound4LIFE chapters across America, these intercessors are silently praying—not protesting—for women who enter abortion clinics like Planned Parenthood. They are standing in agreement with Jesus, the Great Intercessor, concerning the holocaust of abortion. Bound4LIFE intercessors are respectful. They don’t harass passersby. They don’t condemn or guilt-trip women. They don’t hold picket signs…

When Demon-Inspired Believers Lay Hands On You

You’ve probably fallen victim to malicious gossip through the lips of another Christian. But physical assault gives a literal meaning to wrestling principalities and powers, rulers of the darkness of this age, and spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places (Eph. 6:12). Indeed, when a demon physically attacks you through a believer, a wrestling match with the flesh and blood that’s hosting the foul spirit can ensue. I’ve had several “wrestling matches” with people seeking deliverance and I’ve witnessed many more. Some of these precious people manifested with strength that far surpassed their human stature. On one occasion, a…

Why I Don’t Sell Personal Prophecy and Dream Interpretations

Every week I get at least a handful of digital requests from precious people all over the world desperately seeking a prophetic word. Some come begging. Others come demanding. Still others come with money in hand to buy a prophecy or dream interpretation. Seriously, this happens just about every day and more than once on most days. It’s an unfortunate symptom of modern-day prophetic ministry—prophetic ministry that has too often taught people to depend on prophets to “go to the throne” and “get a word” for them instead of fulfilling the Ephesians 4:11 mandate to equip the saints. Don’t get…

Horror Filmmakers Trade Morality for Greed

Just weeks after one of the most horrible school shootings in American history—what will go down in the books as the Newtown massacre—Texas Chainsaw 3D is raking in the big bucks at the box office. The horror flick posted $23 million during open weekend. That’s more than both The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Les Miserables. To say that the horror filmmaking industry has poor timing is an understatement. Wheeler Winston Dixon, author of A History of Horror and professor of film studies at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, made a bold declaration that I strong agree with. He…

A Prophetic Word for 2013: Return to Antioch

I was taking a long drive from South Florida to Orlando, praying in the Spirit, and asking the Lord to reveal some prophetic direction for 2013. I must have prayed in the Spirit for two hours before I heard these three words: “Return to Antioch.” With a long, dark stretch of highway still in front of me, I could not readily dive into Scripture to seek understanding about what the Holy Spirit was trying to tell me. So I continued praying in the Spirit and meditating on those three words: “Return to Antioch.” When I opened my Bible to Acts…

#CutForBieber Trend Mocks Pain of Tormented Teens

Cutting is a dark trend that’s suddenly making its way into the limelight. Indeed, the #CutForBieber and #Cut4Bieber hashtags have been trending on Twitter, a social media platform of choice for teens. After rumors surfaced that pop star Justin Bieber was smoking weed, members of a message board known as 4chan decided to launch the #CutForBieber Twitter campaign in a mock protest. Members used fake accounts, included photos of cutters and the #CutForBieber hashtag. "Lets start a cut yourself for bieber campaign," an anonymous user wrote on the message board. "Tweet a bunch of pics of people cutting themselves and…

Don’t Let the Spirit of Sanballat Distract You

When God called me to build the house of prayer, I knew it would come with opposition. I’ll admit, I never thought it would play out with literal Sanballats. But that’s just what has happened—and often these Sanballats come in sheep’s clothing. Sanballat is an enemy of revival and brings strong opposition to what God wants to build. Sanballat is a critical persecutor who brings false accusations against the work and the people putting their hand to the plow. And Sanballat will rally others to the opposition against you, like Tobiahs and Geshems, just like he did to Nehemiah. The…

Is the Great Falling Away Already Underway?

While in prayer over the vision God gave Steve Hill about the “spiritual avalanche that could kill millions,” an alarming question nagged my soul: Could the great falling away already be underway? Could we be witnessing the first fruits of the great falling away even now? Are we at least seeing a shadow of the Great Apostasy? There is much talk about Christ’s soon Second Coming. But we know that Jesus will not return for a church without spot or wrinkle unless the falling away comes first … (1 Thess. 2:3). Although it’s nothing entirely new, we are indeed witnessing…
