  1. “For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb.” (Luke 1:15) Whether or not the Bible clearly commands total abstinence from alcohol for Christians, it is increasingly being recognized that alcohol is the most widely abused and dangerous dr... More...

  2. The Worldwide Flood

    “And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.” (Genesis 9:11) Those Christians who accept the concept of the “geological ages” commonly have to explain away the great deluge by assuming it was not really a global flood. Th... More... View the full article
  3. Friendly Persuasion

      This thought came from a movie I saw recently where one of the characters states that getting their situation across to others would be impossible without a common frame of reference. That sent me on a search for how to reach a common frame of reference when none exists. Thus I landed on "ChangingMinds.org" and their welcome: In the opening of both, he describes Jesus as the Word: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1 KJV) That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (1 John 1:1 KJV) Both have a third chapter, sixteenth verse that speaks love: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16 KJV) Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. (1 John 3:16 KJV) Ready to start? View the full article

  6. Prophecy

    “I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.” (Deuteronomy 18:18) Two types of prophecy must be distinguished. When a prophet foretells or predicts, he represents the future in light of the present. But frequently the prophetic messag... More... View the full article
  7. It would be hard to describe the level of prayer, planning, and preparation that preceded Spiritual Leadership Conference Asia. And it would also be hard to describe the level of blessing God is placing on it. It’s overwhelming to see what God is doing. I plan to write more later, but I wanted to post a quick update now to share what the Lord is doing and thank partners who have been interceding with us for the conference this week in Manila. (For snapshots moments of what the Lord has been doing, see the pictures I’ve been posting to Twitter and Facebook.) Several months before the conference, we chose the theme “striving together for Asia and beyond.” I have been so encouraged by the real striving together that has taken place leading up to and during this conference. This hasn’t been “striving together” in name only, but in Spirit-filled reality. Missionary Rick Martin in the Philippines, businessman Niranjan Sundararaj from Australia, and Jerry Ferrso from Lancaster Baptist put countless hours into coordinating this conference. But many Filipino pastors and their churches also gave tirelessly to support the conference. From advance prayer meetings with fervent intercession and surrender to providing accommodations for guest pastors and missionaries in homes and churches to providing administrative and ground support, the labor of these dear Christians has been unending. And we are seeing God bless! There is such a spirit of joy, surrender, faith, and passion to reach the lost. Every preaching service has had the anointing of God upon it, and there has been a tender, faith-filled responsiveness to the preaching services and teaching sessions. Many have sensed and surrendered to God’s calling to serve in various Asian mission fields. We’ve been praying for many months that the time and resources we’re investing in this conference would bear a direct result in souls saved, churches planted, laborers encouraged, and more called to serve on mission fields across Asia. We’re seeing the Lord answer these requests in Ephesians 3:20 ways. We still have a final preaching service before concluding this conference. I’m praying that this service will be a grand finale and that the Lord will touch and speak to every heart.

  8. The Awesome Word

    “Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.” (Psalm 119:161) This stanza of Psalm 119 is rich in descriptions of the way God’s Word envelops the believer in awe and wonder. This initial focus is of the heart rather than the mind. Our minds are key to growth and maturity in Christ (View the full article

  11. The Wonderful Angel

    “And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Why askest thou thus after my name, seeing it is secret?” (Judges 13:18) This intriguing encounter occurred during one of Israel’s periods of apostasy and servitude, when the people had been ruled for 40 years by the pagan Philistines. There was one godly couple in the tribe of Dan, however, who evidently had long ... More... View the full article

  14. Treasure in Heaven

    “Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.” (Luke 12:33) The Lord Jesus frequently warned us against trying to accumulate wealth here on Earth. “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,” He said. Rather, “lay ... More... View the full article

    “And [David] said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether GOD will be gracious to me, that the child may live? But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.” (2 Samuel 12:22-23) The death of a loved one is always a time of great sorrow, bu... More... View the full article
