It Is God’s Will that ALL are Healed

Healing is for you, right now.

Whether or not you’re a Christian, Jesus Christ loves you and desires to see you healed. It’s not a matter of what church you go to now or whether or not you go to church at all. It’s also not a matter of the things you have done in your past. The simple fact is that Jesus Christ loves you now. The issue of whether or not you are on the path of going to heaven is something we can talk about later. Right now I just want you to realize that healing, through Jesus Christ, is available to everyone He loves—and He loves everyone!

Your Vision: Your Relationship with Christ in the Light of Kingdom Reality

Praising God in the Light

My heart burns for the coming and present moves of God. It’s imminently upon us—right now—sweeping across the face of the earth like a tidal wave of glorious light! It’s tearing down strongholds, breaking apart resistance, healing the sick, raising the dead, and delivering the captive. It’s a superior reality, directly opposed to the tormented reality of the world currently held under the sway of the dominating kosmokratoras (rulers of darkness who manipulate and control willing human agents). God’s reality is the supernatural Kingdom of unequivocal, unrelenting, ever-pursuing love of a Father-son relationship. It’s this reality in which we must exist if we are to survive the fervent hostility of demonic entities lurking behind governments, organizations, political parties, institutions, social circles, cities, states, nations, and, yes, even religious institutions—perhaps even your church.

No longer do we have time to play—to “get ready to do something” in the Kingdom. The time of “waiting for the right moment” is passing presently by. It has become a matter of supreme importance that we comprehend the reality in which we are supposed to walk—supernatural; other worldly, and Kingdom-focused. While the satanic order may have largely orchestrated your life up to now, its influence, rule, and stranglehold must be broken and conquered. It’s only in the Kingdom reality that you can walk in the supernatural and defeat the opposing forces of darkness hell-bent on keeping you in their anguished dimension. . . . Continue reading


Your Vision: Everything You Touch Shall Be Blessed

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if people wanted to be around you because you brought harmony, peace, love, prosperity and abundance everywhere you went? The radiance of your blessings would cause people to flock, attracted by your aura and spiritual atmosphere. When they come into your presence, they start to pick it up, and blessings begin to flow into them—even if only for a moment.

Can you say that your life is prosperous? I don’t just mean financially, but in every area—your relationships, your home life, your career and business ventures, your health, your joy, and your peace. True prosperity in the Kingdom of God is like this. In fact, a person walking in God’s abundance is a carrier of blessings—it follows them wherever they go.

I hear so much today about “the law of attraction” and many self-improvement courses focus on this as a mystical universal law. Well, it is—sort of. But there’s only one way in the universe to possess the true law of attraction and that’s to do it God’s way—with Kingdom blessings. All other ways are a counterfeit and are based on a curse. . . .

Your Identity in the Kingdom of God – Your Vision is Essential

Let’s start this series on God’s vision for your life by asking a key question:

Is your life ascending to great heights?

Actually, I should backup and ask a more basic question: What direction is your life headed? And are you excited about getting there? Do you have a clear understanding of your purpose or is your purpose as clear as mud?

Have you ever wondered why some people are able to turn dreams, goals, and ambitions into victorious reality, while others, perhaps even you, get stuck in fantasy land? What is it that thrusts some people into a lifestyle of abundance, peace, joy, and wholeness, and raises mankind to his greatest heights? What is it that keeps others living unfulfilled lives, wallowing in despair, discouragement, turmoil, or the dreaded state of being mediocre? Is it education, knowledge and worldly wisdom? How about wealth or land? Perhaps charm, charisma and good looks? Could it be family heritage, social standing, and political connections? . . . Continue reading


Your Identity in the Kingdom of God – Introduction to the “Your Vision” Series

This is the introductory post in a new series that will explore our identity in the Kingdom of God. The focus is on clarifying, understanding, and possessing the identity God has appointed for us. I say “possessing” because that is the ultimate goal: to possess in the totality of our existence (as body, soul, and spirit) the reality of God’s vision for our lives. This represents the very essence of the three part struggle of life: To somehow transform into a spirit with a soul and body instead of a body and soul with a spirit (sort of the default condition of mankind); to somehow transcend the temporal reality of this world and achieve the vision of God for our lives; And to finish well, having run a “good race,” as Paul describes in I Corinthians 9 and 2 Timothy 4. . . .

Survival When All Seems Hopeless – Worship

These past several months have been months of many personal trials and tribulations. Most of which have revealed masks and faces of me into whose eyes I would rather not have stared. It is obvious to me that I still have much to overcome in moving from my “old self” into victory and abundance. I have never lost my vision for what the grace of God is all about. I have no uncertainty that God can and will deliver me into a new self as He promises in His Word. What I struggle with is my own walk and ability to just let Him do His work.

You see, I never cease to amaze myself in my efforts to be contrary to God. I know that the struggles we all face in life are the result of our original fallen natures and the world in which we live. But sometimes I look at the lives of even the unsaved of the world and wonder why they seem so well adjusted and at relative peace with the world when my life seems to be filled with a personal war against my wretched self.

I am at the point where the walls that I must overcome are of such magnitude that only God can deal the victory. I require a momentous miracle in my life. Nothing I can do in the natural world can save me. . . . Continue reading


Is God the Healer or the Afflicter?

What if the God that you think you know isn’t the God of the Bible?

Most people spend a considerable portion of their Christian walk wondering about the true nature of God. I’ve been a Christian for 40 years and allowed myself to be dragged through a roller coaster ride of doctrines and ministries. Each one has attempted to reveal to me the persona and nature of God. But these “revelations” were all over the map—some telling me that God tests us, others telling me that He doesn’t; some telling me that God heals people today, others telling me He doesn’t; some telling me that signs and wonders and miracles ceased after the New Testament was written, others telling me about the powerful operation of God’s power in our world today. These different doctrines preached to me over the years kept me mostly in limbo about the truth. But in spite of living a life of worldly worship, pride, willful sin, and belief in my own power, I managed to spend enough time reading and studying the Bible to see, at least partly, who He is. In fact, Jesus told us who God is when He answered one of His disciples who wanted Jesus to show God the Father to them: . . . Continue reading
