Daily Bread

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, On several occasions we find Jesus asking, “Have you not read…?” (Matt. 12:3-5, 19:4, 21:16, 21:42 & 22:31). That question suggests that Jesus expects us to read the Scripture and if we are not doing so we will misunderstand His heart, misrepresent Him and ultimately fall into error [...]

Grace Revolution

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, There are a lot of books, articles and conversations circulating around the church world about grace these days. There is a term being used, “hyper grace.” Years ago they called it “greasy grace.” There is basically a response to perceived erroneous teachings and applications of grace.  I understand [...]

Salvation

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, Salvation, what an amazing word! I have heard some great testimonies lately of lives totally and radically changed because of the transforming power of Christ’s salvation. It made me think back on my own salvation encounter. In my early teen years I got involved in a drug culture [...]

From His Side

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, One of the most profound visions I have experienced occurred on a Sunday morning during worship several years ago. I saw Christ on the cross dead. He was truly as Isaiah said, “His appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being 
and his form marred beyond [...]

Holy Ghost People

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, Speaking in tongues was the first gift of the Holy Spirit given to the church and as the gospel went out from Jerusalem, so did tongues. The gift is woven throughout the Book of Acts. Paul was a big proponent of speaking in tongues and it accompanied his [...]

Prophetic Church

Dear People Who Keep Company With God,  The Bible tells us to not put out the Spirit’s fire and then it tells us how to not do that; do not despise prophetic utterances (1 Thess. 5:18-19). There is good reason this is in the Bible. If you are involved in a church or ministry that [...]

Fresh Anointing

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, Jesus was full of grace and truth (John 1:14), but as far as we know He did not preach, perform miracles or healings until He was anointed with the Holy Spirit and power (Luke 4:14 & Acts 10:38). So it is important for us to not only discover [...]

The Most Important Person On Earth

Dear People Who Keep Company With God,  When Jesus was baptized at the Jordan River three significant things happened (Mark 1:9-11). The heavens were literally torn open meaning; He had total access to the Father and all that is in heaven.  The Father revealed to Jesus His identity, love and acceptance and the Holy Spirit [...]

The Power Of Believing

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, As a young believer I heard Arthur Burt say many times, “Your believing rules you. You don’t rule your believing.” In those early days, I didn’t really get what he was saying, but the further I walk with the Lord the more I am getting it.  Abraham’s life [...]

Soul Transformation

Dear People Who Keep Company With God, The Bible speaks of three tenses when it comes to salvation. There is a part of our salvation that is already accomplished. Our spirit man has been saved, past tense ( Eph. 2:5,8, 2 Tim. 1:9, Tit. 3:5). That does not take place slowly over time and it [...]
