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...

Overcoming Doubtaholism

Doubt is like a debilitating disease that leaves its victims helpless and hopeless. Find out how to combat doubtaholism. “Doubt is the door-way to unbelief.” When I heard the Holy Spirit speak those words, I began to ponder the danger of doubt. I began to see doubt as more than just a mindset that prevents us from casting the proverbial mountain into the sea. I began to see doubt as a spiritual disease whose goal is to cripple our Christian lives. I dub this disease doubtaholism. Doubt is a cousin of fear and suspicion that blocks faith and discernment. To…

Opening Your Eyes to Spiritual Deception

Medical doctors call it Usher syndrome. It’s a disorder that causes deafness and gradual loss of sight. You may have heard about it in the news recently. Jacob, the nine-year-old son of star horse jockey Kent Desormeaux, is suffering from the disease. Jacob is progressively going blind, and more quickly than anticipated. Doctors say in a few more years he may not be able to see at all. As a parent, this tears at my heart. I can’t even imagine this father’s pain, watching as his son slowly but surely loses his senses of sight and hearing; realizing his son…

What to Do About Spiritual Frustration

Are you experiencing spiritual frustration? Someone e-mailed me this question: “Is there such a thing as spiritual frustration. If so, can you explain and what would you suggest as a solution?” Here’s my response: Yes, I believe there is. You first have to discern if the frustration is a godly or satanic frustration. Sometimes the devil come with discontent to try to move us out of or ahead of Gods’ will. Other times, it’s a spiritual frustration from God that moves us more toward His will. Understanding what God’s will is and trusting Him to bring it to pass is…

The Stubborn Seer

Jonah’s experience in the belly of a whale may be a kid’s church favorite, but there are serious warnings here for New Testament prophets. While the Book of Jonah tells a familiar story, deeper examination demonstrates two spiritual death knells for prophets: rebellion and stubbornness. The Lord told Jonah to go to Nineveh and preach against the wickedness of its society. Jonah’s immediate response was to run away from the Lord and board a ship that was headed in the opposite direction toward Tarshish. Jonah rebelled against the word of the Lord because he wanted Nineveh to experience the wrath…

Is America still a Christian nation?

Is America still a Christian nation? That’s the topic of debate between a believer and an atheist next week. Chaplain E. Ray Moore, Jr., president of Frontline Ministries, will oppose Herb Silverman, Ph.D., president of the Secular Coalition for America, on Thursday, October 29th, 2009. The debate is being sponsored by the Pastafarians, a USC student organization for atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, secular humanists and skeptics. Moore will concentrate his defense on the historical and spiritual truths of America’s founding era, proving that America was indeed founded as a Christian nation. He will be challenged by Silverman’s opposing ideas, which will…

Boldness Out of the Mouth of My Babe

Mommy, can I take my Bible to school today?” Nine words that brought both delight and concern to my heart. Delight that my 10-year-old darling would love Jesus enough to take Him to school with her in leather-bound form. Concern because I knew that love would breed persecution I wasn’t sure she was yet ready to fully understand. So I did what any good parent would do. I said, “Of course you can take your Bible to school, Bridgette. Remember, Jesus’ words are in red.” Then I prayed for the prophetic youngster and sent her off to the public school…

Baptism of the Holy Ghost and Fire!

Rushing to the quarters of Minnie F. Abrams at 3:30 a.m. on June 29, 1905, the matron of a girls’ dormitory at the Mukti Mission in India told her that one of the girls had suddenly awakened “with the fire coming down upon her.”1 Having prayed before going to sleep that she might receive the baptism in the Holy Ghost, the girl now screamed with fright as the others watched the flames. The matron related how she “saw the fire, and ran across the room for a pail of water, and was about to pour it on her when I…

Prayer and Fervency by E.M. Bounds

PRAYER, without fervour, stakes nothing on the issue, because it has nothing to stake. It comes with empty hands. Hands, too, which are listless, as well as empty, which have never learned the lesson of clinging to the Cross. Fervourless prayer has no heart in it; it is an empty thing, an unfit vessel. Heart, soul, and life, must find place in all real praying. Heaven must be made to feel the force of this crying unto God. Paul was a notable example of the man who possessed a fervent spirit of prayer. His petitioning was all-consuming, centered immovably upon…

Seven Habits of Highly Effective Christians

Stephen Covey has built a publishing empire on the back of his blockbuster bestseller “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Living.” There’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens,” “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families,” and, most recently, “The 8th Habit.” In these books, Covey tells us to do things like be proactive, synergize and sharpen the saw. All good advice. While we appreciate Covey’s wisdom and brilliant book marketing strategies, however, let’s not forget that the Bible has plenty of practical advice about good and bad habits alike. In fact, the Book of 2 Timothy, in particular, offers…
