  • I Will Remember (2)

    Here we go with Part 2. In Part 1 we studied a man called Asaph in Psalms 77 and discovered that he employed the same method of praise that Hezekiah did when confronted by Sennacherib. Now we move into the New Testament scriptures that reveal the great grace and love of God and Paul and Peter’...
  • I Will Remember (1)

    This is a teaching I was inspired to write in 2015. It is a longer teaching. I was going to break it up into four parts, but there was no good break point for that to happen. So, please forgive the length of both parts 1 and 2. Enjoy this teaching. Here's part 1. For the last several weeks before w...
  • Personal Touch (2)

    Grace is always the manifestation of God’s power to do something that we cannot do ourselves. Our part is to take or receive. I’m not talking about greed. I’m talking about understanding what faith simply is. Like I said before, faith is an action word. The action is to receive wha...
  • Personal Touch

    Hello everyone. I've been traveling a bit lately, so haven't had much chance to put up any posts. Good to be home for awhile. Hope you enjoy this post. Why is it important to give someone a personal touch? By that I don’t necessarily mean a physical hands on touch. Maybe it’s just time ...
  • Grace - An Excuse To Sin (2)

    Those who are afraid of the grace message will teach that you can take grace too far. Grace is God expressing His unconditional love and mercy for you and me independent of anything we ever do or don’t do now or in the future. Grace is Jesus personified. So to say you can go too far with grace...
  • Grace - An Excuse To Sin (1)

    Lets start with Truth. Grace does not excuse you to sin. Grace does not cover up sin. Grace empowers you to live righteously. Grace is not right doing, it’s right believing. Romans 6:1-3 uses an almost rhetorical question to get the point across regarding the grace of God. It would be rhetori...
  • Truth vs Untruth (2)

    I mentioned in part 1 we would pick this teaching back up with verse 15 of Romans 4. So here we go. 15 For the law always brings punishment on those who try to obey it. (The only way to avoid breaking the law is to have no law to break!) Well, I guess since you think you have to live up to th...

  • Truth vs Untruth (1)

    I am convinced that what keeps people in bondage is pride. Not arrogant pride. False pride. It goes something like this. “I’m not worthy. I’m worthless. I’m not valuable. I’m useless. I keep screwing up. I don’t deserve it.” This is false humility which is t...

  • Just Like Abraham (2)

    Let me remind you of what verse 4 of Romans 4 says. “Now, when you work a job, do your wages come as a gift or as compensation for your work? It is most certainly not a gift”. A gift is not earned. A gift is given. Now with that let's continue. 15 For the law brings ...

  • Just Like Abraham (1)

    In my teaching “God Remains Faithful” I mentioned I might start in Romans 4 and continue the powerful teachings of Paul’s revelation of grace. Paul continues to make his point clear concerning our acceptance into the Kingdom not based on circumcision or works, but rather on the fin...

  • God Remains Faithful (2)

    A review of part 1 will help tie this into part 2. Paul explains the failed situations in Romans 3 verses 10-18. Then in verse 19 he explains the futility of trying to live under the law. 19 We want to be clear that whatever the law says, it says to everyone who is under its authority. It...
  • God Remains Faithful (1)

    God’s salvation consists essentially of His presence with us. Given this truth, then His wrath consists of His absence or separation from us. The bad news is this, without the good news of Jesus, no hope exists and God’s wrath is real. In the latter portion of Romans 2 and going through...
  • Grace Has No Stones (2)

    Her answer is simple, “No man, Lord.” His forgiveness is instant, “Neither do I condemn thee.” This is where we left off in part 1, right after verse 11 of John chapter 8. Jesus first gave her the gift of no condemnation. He said “I don’t condemn you”. Then...

  • Grace Has No Stones (1)

    The New Testament relays many stories about Jesus and his encounter with women. He was very controversial during His time on earth because He was the only one at the time who came to restore women to their rightful positions in the Kingdom. Stories that come to mind are the woman at the well, Jairu...
  • Discern Good and Evil (2)

    In Mark 3:4 Jesus asks if it is lawful to do good or to do evil. He didn’t ask if it is lawful to do right or wrong. Why? Because He knew they were religious law keepers and legalists. He knew they didn’t understand the difference between right and wrong verses good and evil. That is wh...
  • Discern Good and Evil (1)

    In the garden of Eden stood the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It wasn’t the tree of the knowledge of right and wrong. Right and wrong will always change, but good and evil will not. Here’s a couple examples. I don’t like broccoli, but my wife does. So, it’s right f...
  • Jesus' Birth (2)

    We ended part 1 showing how Mary was very inquisitive and wondered about this thing the Angel was telling her, but she did what Bill Johnson so often says we ought to do. That being, “give up your right to understand”. Experiencing something brings full understanding. That is why wh...
  • Jesus' Birth (1)

    We are close enough to December 25th for this teaching to be posted. There have been many that have already told this story concerning Jesus’ birth. It is not anything new to have several messages about this. Luke begins his story by mentioning that his is simply another account of what he rec...
  • God Is Misrepresented (2)

    So, Saul has this great encounter with grace. Instead of being killed by God, God says “get up, go into the city”. Once he gets there God says, here’s what I want you to do. You will be called Paul, you will write half of the new testament about my love and grace. You will preach t...
  • God Is Misrepresented (1)

    Why is that? Why is it that God is being misrepresented? It’s because many in the Christian community know the God of the law, but not the God of grace, peace and love. The problem with that is you will become what you are, based on the God that you know. Religious people think they have...
  • Fighting For What's Yours (2)

    As you continue to study the rest of the scriptures in Numbers chapter 32, you’ll discover what belongs to you, but you’ll actually be able to possess those things and enjoy them. The people said we will march into battle. We will utilize our gifts and talents. We will reject religion a...
  • Fighting For What's Yours (1)

    This teaching developed as I was studying the book of Numbers and came up on Chapter 32. Now, you may be asking, what is a grace teacher doing studying the boring book of Numbers? Well, if you have to ask that question, then it’s clear you haven’t been studying the teachings on this webs...
  • Comparing Grace and Law

    You’ve heard me say this before, but it bears continuous repeating, because it is such a profound Truth. “Holiness is not a requirement for God to have a relationship with you.” That statement right there immediately lets me know where people truly are in their understanding of th...
  • 10, 2, and 4 (2)

    So now let's talk about Saul of Tarsus. If God didn’t stay with him and bring him to the knowledge of His grace, I wouldn’t be writing this revelatory teaching right now. Come on. God does not remove His gifts and callings. He uses the broken and beaten to bring the message of His kingdo...
  • 10, 2, and 4 (1)

    This title is from an old commercial that Dr. Pepper put out years ago. They even had it as their logo on their bottles in the 1960’s. “Dr Pepper Time”, according to one promotion, was at 10, 2 and 4 o’clock. In the 1960s, the tune of the chorus of “The Glow-W...
  • And Then Comes The Law (2)

    Hebrews 10:8-10 continues on with what was discussed in part 1 of this teaching. That being to declare the truth of the better covenant and destroy the untruths surrounding legalism and religion associated with the law.  8 First, Christ said, “You did not want animal sacrifices...
  • And Then Comes The Law (1)

    Many new believers are overwhelmed by scripture when they first start reading the bible. Especially when they read from the beginning. Much of their confusion, frustration, and despair can be blamed on the lack of guidance and mentoring they receive. It appears we are over zealous when it comes to ...
  • No Condemnation (2)

    We ended part 1 with this - "Finally, no one can condemn me. They can’t even reject me, because how can you reject something that’s already been accepted". Too many Christians allow their experiences to dictate and dominant their lives, rather than receiving the truth of what scripture ...
  • No Condemnation (1)

    Romans 8:1 says “There is therefore now NO condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit”. That means there is now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus….period!!!! Yes but you are a stickler...
  • Foolish Galatians - Don't Be One (2)

    In chapter 3, Paul calls the Galatians foolish. Foolish for what? For leaving the grace of Christ and going back to relating to God based on their performance. He also calls them bewitched. Why did they go back into legalism after they had originally put faith in Jesus alone and recei...

  • Foolish Galatians - Don't Be One (1)

    There is no room for compromise in the gospel of the Grace of Christ. Understand this. Paul makes it very clear. He was extremely adamant about this. The book of Romans is Paul’s masterpiece on the study of God’s great grace, but the book of Galatians is his strongest teaching on th...
  • Truth Versus UnTruth (2)

    Galatians 4:7 says “Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir”. That’s a powerful truth, but so many Christians are still acting like orphans. God has MADE (past tense) you his heir. Quit walking around like you...

  • God Does Not Bless Us (2)

    Okay. Now let's get to this subject called great faith. Only two people in bible are mentioned, that I could find, that were titled as having great faith. The first is the Roman centurion and the second was the Canaanite woman. Let’s look first at the Roman centurion. Matthew 8:5-13. 5 ...
  • God Does Not Bless Us (1)

    That title should get many curious, but God does not bless us based on our love for Him, or our good works toward Him. God blesses us based on his love toward us. God’s blessing are not given us based on the measure of our performance, but rather based on the security of His promises. There a...

  • He Is Able (2)

    Here is the story in Genesis Chapters 16 and Chapter 21 about Hagar and Ishmael that I promised in part 1. I preached a sermon many years back called “God has given you a baby”. It’s about the story of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar. If you remember, Sarah could not bare a child, so sh...

  • He Is Able (1)

    God is able….REALLY HE IS. God is all that and a bag of chips. He truly is. When we forget that, we get in the way of that which He truly wants accomplished through us or others. It’s the others we find ourselves hindering by saying yes to the wrong things. I've told many young christia...
  • God's Supply (2)

    As promised at the end of part 1, here are some other stories of God’s supply always exceeding your needs. I encourage you to study them for yourself. I’m talking about Gideon’s story in Judges 6, the widow of Zarephath in 1 Kings 17, the wedding at Cana where Jesus turned wat...
  • God's Supply (1)

    God’s supply always exceeds your needs. His grace is greater. Too many people live under the mistaken notion that they have to perform exactly right in order for God to supply their needs. They are demand oriented rather than supply oriented. The principle of grace is God’s supply, whil...
  • Telling God He's God (2)

    Hezekiah is not a great man of faith. He’s not a student of faith, he’s a King, a ruler of people. But he does the right thing. He hails the man of Faith. It’s Isaiah. He’s one of the great men of faith. He’s the man who hears from God daily. He’s the student...
  • Telling God He's God (1)

    You may have heard me say this before on a previous teaching. True worship is when God’s people are telling God that He’s God. It’s not necessarily all verbal, but more resting in the promises of God and trusting in Him to do and perform what is needed. This story beginning in 2 K...
  • Fiery Trials (2)

    Remember we ended part 1 with verse 18 of James 1 declaring we, out of all creation, became his prized possession. So let me ask you this question. Would you hurt or test your prized possession? Would you purposely harm your children, or lock them in a cellar without food and water to teac...

  • Fiery Trials (1)

    Jesus said in John 16:33 – “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” Look at what Jesus said real closely. He said “I have...
  • The Power of Asking (2)

    Look at this next set of scriptures. You want to know what the will of God is. Well, it’s in these verses. Of course, there’s more to the will of God than just Matt 10:7,8, but we can’t even seem to get these right. Look. Matt 10:7,8 “And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdo...

  • The Power of Asking (1)

    What a title for a teaching. The title of this teaching will perk the interest of many people. On the surface it would imply a form of works. Asking as if God has not already provided for what it is you need or want. What is it you don’t think God already knows about you, your wants, your need...
  • Rejecting God's Sacrifice (2)

    Hebrews 10:32-39. Remember those early days after you first saw the light? Those were the hard times! Kicked around in public, targets of every kind of abuse—some days it was you, other days your friends. If some friends went to prison, you stuck by them. If some enemies broke in and seiz...
  • Rejecting God's Sacrifice (1)

    I was listening to one of my premier mentors when it comes to the grace of God, and the revelation we have received. His name is Malcolm Smith and he made some powerful statements I wanted to share, because these statements lead me into the study that follows. Basically, I was burdened because of t...

  • Leaven of the Pharisees (2)

    Here we go with verse 17 of Galatians 5. “The sinful nature (our idea of how to be righteous) wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants (God’s way of righteousness). And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. ...
  • Leaven of the Pharisees (1)

    Jesus warned, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees. Just a little leaven spoils the whole batch. What was Jesus saying. Although He spoke a parable associated with bread, He was really warning them not to allow even the slightest portion of religion or legalism to creep into the truth surrounding H...

  • Step and Stretch (1)

    You might say that “Step and Stretch” is a strange title for a teaching, but I just put them down the way God gives them to me. Like I’ve said before, He is in management and I’m in sales. It is just not healthy to get the two mixed up. So to begin, I was reminded about the ...
  • Manifestation (2)

    Paul said in Romans 8:18 “Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory He will reveal to us later”. 2 Corinthians 1:5. “We share in the many sufferings of Christ. In the same way, much comfort comes to us through Christ”. Finally, Philippians 3:10, a scripture that...
  • Manifestation (1)

    This subject matter is one we have discussed often in previous blogs. Usually it was associated with a teaching on healing. However, it can be applied for provision, peace, joy, or any number of truths that are ours through Christ Jesus. We have studied and proven that our healing was alr...
  • Holy Rest (2)

    "Jesus took care of everything in the future, from the past, for your present." As I was studying one morning on March 8, 2020, God spoke these words to me. He brought them back to my remembrance today. Why? I don't know, but I'm getting better at not arguing with God and I'm learning better how to ...

  • Holy Rest (1)

    Actually, we could flip the title and call this Rest Holy. Faith is seeing the finished work of Christ and resting there. When God gives you a word it’s a word He wants to work in your life. It’s not up to you to work it. You simply receive it and enter into his rest. How do we do that?...
  • Who Has Bewitched You (4)

    Finishing this up with part 4. Here's where we left off. Ephesians 5:15 - “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,” How many today, that are so called Christians, do not walk in the faith as wise? Instead they get carried away in false teachings, in lega...
  • Who Has Bewitched You (3)

    In this Part 3 we will pick up where we started with Paul addressing the Galatians and their wrong believing. They fell back into religious works and performance after being saved by grace. They were influenced by the religious crowd and started to embrace legalism once again. Religion and legalism ...
  • Who Has Bewitched You (2)

    Paul continues with his correction to the Corinthians. In 1 Corinthians 12:1 he writes, “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant”. You have to be careful how you punctuate this statement and where to put the emphasis. For instance if you said it this way &...
  • Who Has Bewitched You (1)

    This will be another 4 part teaching and is a good follow-up to the most recent teaching entitled “Yoke of Slavery”. From Romans to Philemon, every book Paul wrote has one of the following in the first several verses. Grace to you and peace. Grace be unto you and peace. Grace unto y...
  • Yoke of Slavery (4)

    Hear me loud and clear. The law has done its job by pointing out our need for a Savior. It has shown us we can’t live up to God’s righteousness on our own. As a result, we turn to Christ in total dependency. So, don’t turn back to the law. God does not want that for us. Galatians ...

  • Yoke of Slavery (3)

    This is Part 3 of the “Yoke of Slavery”. So lets just start it off with this. HEAR THIS LOUD AND CLEAR. THE MEANEST, MOST UNLOVING PEOPLE ON EARTH ARE LEGALISTS!!! Just like the Pharisees, they can feel extremely righteous even while they are stabbing a brother in the back. We do a...
  • Yoke of Slavery (2)

    Sad to say the “stay out of the garbage” approach to Christianity dominates many pulpits today. That’s because they haven’t realized that the law was never given to make men right with God. It was given to show men their need for a Savior who could, would and did make&nb...
  • Yoke of Slavery (1)

    Legalism. A word filled with bondage and despair. This is going to be another 4 part teaching as we continue to destroy the false religious teachings of works oriented, performance based, religion. Isaiah 10:27 is a good place to start. Although it is talking about removing the attacks of the Assyr...
  • Quit Doing Ministry (2)

    The law of Moses that has been brought into the Church is filled with you gotta try harder, gotta do better, gotta perform. But this message, the true Gospel, is the announcement of a righteousness, not based on performance. It comes only from God as a GIFT. You see, God in Christ took my place. Go...
  • Quit Doing Ministry (1)

    Doing or Being the Ministry. What’s the difference? A lot. Lets see if we can discover something from the Apostle Paul from the great grace book of Romans Chapter 15. We’ll kick this off with verses 18 and 19 and see where Holy Spirit takes us. Here it is in the NAS. 18 For I will ...
  • Grace, Mercy, and Peace (2)

    Continuing on with 2 John. 5 And now I ask you, dear lady—not as though I were writing you a new commandment, but the one we have had from the beginning—that we love one another. Now John is speaking to the church and says I ask you. I’m not commanding you or writing a new l...
  • Grace, Mercy, and Peace (1)

    Grace, Mercy, and Peace. Yes, it's another teaching on the ridiculous, radical, inexhaustible love and grace of God. Now more than ever during these turbulent times we need to shelter ourselves in Him, abiding and trusting Him as the uncovering of the enemy takes place. It is God's work. Our job is ...
  • God Cannot (2)

    Any preaching that puts a large emphasis on man's ability to fail, mess up, or sin insults the finished work of Jesus Christ and His grace (or ability) to deliver, redeem and save us from sin! Every act of sin results from your mistrust and unbelief in His love and grace for you. The preaching an...

  • God Cannot (1)

    In my Blog entitled "Unforgiving Servant", I made the following statement - "There are things God cannot do and removing His forgiveness is one of them. God cannot lie. God cannot deny Himself, and God cannot give to you as a reward that which is already yours through inheritance." There are many ...
  • The Unjust Judge (2)

    Okay, so hopefully you studied ahead through verses 7 and 8. In verse 8 the statement is made that He will avenge them speedily. In the NAS it says He will bring about justice for them quickly. Then why is it when it comes to restoration or people getting back what the enemy has stolen, it...
  • The Unjust Judge (1)

    In Luke 18 we see the story of the Unjust Judge. This is a familiar parable and one that is usually mis-applied. Once again, due to lack of study of the word, many will teach that God is the Unjust Judge. As we discovered in the teaching on the “Unforgiving Servant” found in Matthew 18,...
  • Will Everyone Be Saved (4)

    We finished part 3 with this. Paul was persuaded that God fully loved him. Not because he was so pure and holy. Paul was persuaded because he knew even if he made a mistake, God still loved him and God’s grace was sufficient. You see, most of us struggle to do right, but fruit is not the prod...

  • Will Everyone Be Saved (3)

    God in His infinite wisdom made a way for us to know for sure we are saved. Even if we stumble and fall He gave us the Holy Spirit. If we will simply seek after God and abide in Him we will immediately repent of our wrong believing and quit focusing on our poor behavior. Now that we’ve gotten...

  • Will Everyone Be Saved (2)

    Okay. Some are saved and some are not. Some will be saved and some will not. I think the scriptures from part 1 bear that out. So, that begs the question or response that it appears Jesus could be a liar. I thought He died for all people, all sins, for all time. I mean, if not all people will be sav...
  • Will Everyone Be Saved (1)

    What a good question, but one that’s easy to answer. It will however require a longer study, so this will be in 4 parts. Let’s start with 1 Tim 2:1-4. 1 I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. ...
  • Is The Law Our Foundation? (2)

    So, continuing on in Romans 3, further debunking the false teaching that the law is our foundation. Beginning with verse 27. 27 Can we boast, then, that we have done anything to be accepted by God? No, because our acquittal is not based on obeying the law. It is based on faith. Oh oh. Th...
  • Is The Law Our Foundation? (1)

    Once again God is prompting me to reduce to writing that which He is revealing to me through study of His scripture. This time it is to find truth surrounding the error being taught that “the law is our foundation for our faith”. Now I didn’t go out looking for scripture to ar...
  • Unforgiving Servant (2)

    Now, here comes what I believe to be the crux of this whole parable. Why are we angered at the conduct of this unjust servant? Why do we rejoice at the decision of the king to revoke his forgiveness to this rascal? And if the king is a metaphor for God, what kind of God is this that in ang...
  • Unforgiving Servant (1)

    Matthew 18:21-35 tells the story of an unforgiving servant. Now, before we can even begin to tackle this parable, we must first get this story in perspective. What I mean by that is rightly divide the Word of Truth. So, although in this story we find ourselves in the dispensation of the law, before ...

    We ended part 1 with 1 Corinthians 1:30 which stated “God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin”. From that scripture we discovered that God is doing ...

  • It's All On Deposit (1)

    It’s all on deposit. Everything you need that pertains to life and godliness is already available to you. God has already made provision and given to you all that you need. Look what it says here in 2 Peter 1:1-3 in the New Living Translation. 1 This letter is from Simon Peter, a slave a...
  • You've Already Got It (2)

    Grace is what God has already done for us independent of any worth or value on our part. If it’s tied to some goodness on our part, then it’s not true grace. God, by His Grace, has already provided everything we will ever need. Our faith does not move God. If God hasn’t already mo...
  • You've Already Got It (1)

    I believe understanding the GRACE OF GOD is the revelation God is illuminating to the “Church”, so we might move to the next level of power. God gave me two words some time ago. Preparation and Continuation. Our burden is to see people set free from religion, legalism, guilt, performance...
  • What Did God Say? (2)

    After studying part 1, lets look at Hebrews 1:3 again. Can we attribute any of what is said in verse 3 as being God’s words? The answer is yes, even though it is the writer of Hebrews here that is writing these words by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, they are backed up by what Jesus said. Je...

  • What Did God Say? (1)

    Hebrews 13:9 says “For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace”. Another translation says it this way – “For it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace”. Remember that grace and truth came by Jesus Christ (John 1:17). People today have a d...
  • Does God Ever Cause Sickness? (2)

    We left off part 1 with the “Ya but” ministry saying, “but GOD DOES CHOOSE NOT TO HEAL”? Really? Where does it say that in scripture. It’s too late to make that statement, because He chose over 2,000 years ago to make a purchase that included everything. It is fini...
  • Does God Ever Cause Sickness? (1)

    In a previous teaching, we tackled the question “Does God ever grant Satan permission to take us into bondage? We showed through scripture that the answer to that question was a resounding NO. In this teaching we are going to deal with the question “Does God Ever Cause or Allow Sickness&...

    I hope you studied those three verses in Romans 8:26,27,34. So lets begin with verse 34. It states no one can condemn us because Christ died FOR US, was raised back to life FOR US, and is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand pleading FOR US. Hebrews 7:25 reads that He is able, onc...

    Okay. Finishing up this lesson, here’s some more reasons for speaking in tongues.

    At the end of part 2 of this teaching, I said we would start part 3 (I actually said part 2 in error) with the following questions. How do I get this gift of speaking in tongues?

    Okay, lets look at some examples in scripture that God felt comfortable with as being qualified, starting with Abraham. After all we are the seed of Abraham and he is the father of all nations. What qualified him? The fact that he was a polytheist, who believed in many gods? Surely that wo...

  • Are You Qualified (1)

    So many people in the church today have the worst form of pride. That being a false sense of humility. It goes like this. “I’m just not good enough for God to love me. I’m just not worthy to even expect anything from God. I just haven’t done enough good things for God to bles...

  • Stumbling Brothers (2)

    Continuing with Romans 14 and bringing Truth to the religious lie about "causing your brother to stumble". 15 If you hurt the faith of your brother or sister because of something you eat, you are not really following the way of love. Don’t destroy anyone’s faith by eating something...
  • Stumbling Brothers (1)

    “Do not cause your brother to stumble.” Have you ever been reprimanded by one of God’s self appointed junior “holy spirits” with this statement? I purposely left the reference to the Holy Spirit in lower case, because in the previous sentence context it would cause...
  • Crippled by Offenses (2)

    Now here are those scriptures leading up to verse 17 we talked about in part 1. WOW!!! 2 Corinthians 5:14-16. 14 You see, the controlling force in our lives is the love of the Anointed One. And our confession is this: One died for all; therefore, all have died. What’s the controlling f...
  • Crippled by Offenses (1)

    Understanding fully the wonderful gift of the grace of God will set you free from the tyranny of others and from the tyranny of yourself. Those who have received the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness, spoken of in Romans 5:17, have been set free in grace. They no longer fall into the ...
  • Believer's Authority (4)

    Okay. Finishing up this powerful truth regarding the Believer's Authority. Here's part 4. Colossians 2:15 – “He defeated the rulers and powers of the spiritual world. With the cross he won the victory over them and led them away, as defeated and powerless prisoners for the whole world t...
  • Believer's Authority (3)

    This is part 3 of the authority of the believer and the grace of God. So picking up where we left off. Religion says, you have to believe, but then you have to do something also. That’s wrong. My purpose is to bring you the truth, because the bible says it’s the knowledge of the truth th...

  • Believer's Authority (2)

    If you think part 1 was filled with Truth, buckle your spiritual seatbelts, because we've just got started. In John 16:27 Jesus says “The Father himself loves you because you have loved me. And he loves you because you have believed that I came from God”. The Father loves you, because y...
  • Believer's Authority (1)

    There are many teachings about the authority of the believer and the grace of God. Both of these subjects remain on my heart. So I asked God what message He wanted me to teach about. God’s reply was “My people are walking around in defeat, because they don’t realize the author...

    Ephesians 1:3-5. 3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. 4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in h...
  • What Do You Believe (1)

    As I was studying Hosea 11:1-3, then 7, God spoke this Word to me. “I am always trying to get favor and grace to my people, but Here’s what happened. As the ministers of Truth sent forth the Word or called the people with the truth, the people didn’t like it and went to the “...
  • Forgiveness, Legalism, Law and Grace (2)

    James understood this whole truth of grace by revelation from the Spririt of God. Look what he wrote in James 4:6 – And He gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Romans 10:3 says “for they being ignorant of God...
  • Forgiveness, Legalism, Law and Grace (1)

    Forgiveness, legalism, law and grace. Now there is a set of words that we could teach on for years to come. Frankly, we have been teaching on them for years. Yet with all the previous teachings on the subject of God’s Ridiculous, Radical, “all most too good to be true”, Inexhaustib...

  • Legalism - Futility In Action (2)

    Remember in part 1 I mentioned a Word God gave me regarding the difficulty people have giving up their wrong opinions about what the Truth really says regarding God’s grace. He said to me – “A deeper truth can stand before someone and do no good. It takes a revelation of that ...

  • Legalism - Futility In Action (1)

    Legalism as defined in the dictionary is “strict and literal adherence to the law”. So many are locked in the bondage of religion and legalism. Thinking they must perform in order to be good enough, holy enough, righteous enough for God to accept them. This teaching comes on the heels o...

  • Is There Enough Grace (2)

    We left off part 1 with this question? "Can I really expect to receive forgiveness of all my sins?" Ephesians 1:7. “In whom we have (past tense again) redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace” Colossians 1:14. Just ...
  • Is There Enough Grace (1)

    Is there really enough grace? Will God truly extend to me His grace after all that I’ve done wrong? Can I really expect to receive forgiveness of all my sins? What do I have to do in order to get right with God? We hear these questions all the time. You may even have asked yourselves these qu...

  • Divine Power and Authority (2)

    I mentioned we’d get back to this. 2 Peter 1:3-4: “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceedin...
  • Divine Power and Authority (1)

    “There are kingdom principles and there is kingdom presence. It’s better to live by presence than it is to live by principles” (Bill Johnson). Great moves of God are not sustained because of multiple meetings. We can’t simply rely on the wave of the movement at the time. The ...
  • Faith in Truth (2)

    Let’s move on to the next one. I was glad when they said, “Let us go into the house of the Lord”. So lets put this in context also. First understand that if you’re not glad when you go to church, then you shouldn’t go at all. Again, it’s a heart thing, not a requi...

  • Faith in Truth (1)

    Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. We quote this scripture all the time, but do we ever see the importance, emphasis, and power in this word. People listen to preachers and teachers and the words they say. However, if they are not speaking words that are God’s words, the r...
  • Encouraged by the Holy Ghost (2)

    At the end of part 1 of this subject, I suggested you briefly review it before starting part 2. Here's part 2. This is a good place to drop this quote in from A.W. Tozer: “If the Holy Spirit were taken away from the New Testament church, 90% of what they did would have come to a halt. B...
  • Encouraged by the Holy Ghost (1)

    Acts 9:20-31 begins the story of Saul (later Paul the Apostle) and his bold ministry. If you remember, this was a man that had very poor behavior and totally wrong believing. He was a Pharisee of Pharisees, keeper of the law to the strictest order, and a killer of believers. He was there at Stephen&...
  • The "And Suddenlies" (2)

    So, we see that “and suddenlies” occur in many different circumstances. They are not just for healing, or provision, or salvation, or restoration, but can occur for any need that befalls us. I believe Bill Johnson said this also. “We occupy something only for the purpose of advanc...

  • The "And Suddenlies" (1)

    I’ve had in my spirit the “feeling”, “thought”, “anticipation”, of something suddenly happening that many of us have been expecting for some time. It’s not that we all have the same things we are expecting, but I just believe God is readying the releas...
  • Healing From God's Pantry (2)

    Here's where we left off in Part 1. "It isn’t that God doesn’t want to heal. It’s that He already has. The healer lives on the inside of you. Healing is present within you. It s the manifestation of that healing that we continue to seek. What is it we still do not know about healin...

  • Healing From God's Pantry (1)

    Let me just start with this. 2 Peter 1:2-4 (NAS). 2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; Just look at that. Grace and peace BE multiplied. It’s multiplied to us in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. It’s in the knowledge of H...
  • Mixing Law and Grace (2)

    As we continue from Part 1, here’s another thing the law does. It keeps you in your old dead state and prevents you from entering into life. 2 Corinthians 3:6 – “He has enabled us to be ministers of His new covenant. This is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The o...
  • Mixing Law and Grace (1)

    It’s just continuous. It’s the same old story. Paul ran into it when he was correcting the Galatians. They were saved and set free by the grace of God, but then they let others convince them there was something more they needed or had to do. It’s what we call Galatianism. Mixing la...

  • What Do You Want? (2)

    Continuing on from part 1 with John 5 verse 15 and following. 15 The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had healed him. 16 And this was why the Jews were persecuting Jesus, because he was doing these things on the Sabbath. What a rebel Jesus was. Again, how dare H...

  • What Do You Want? (1)

    The subject and title for this teaching “What Do You Want” was inspired by verse 6 of John 5. However, I was driven to do a deeper study for further revelation based on what was written in John 5:45. Here it is. 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one who...

    Do you remember what Galatians 3:11 said? Here it is again. "So it is clear that no one can be made right with God by trying to keep the law. For the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.” So now look what Romans 8:3,4 says. 3 The law of ...

  • Deception and The Law (1)

    Have you heard someone say, “the devil made me do it”. I know comedians have used that saying to be funny, but let’s take a truth look at that statement. The devil has no power over us, except through deception. He never brings the actual sin temptation to us, but he brings decept...

    We completed part 1 by describing the three groups in the bible that tithed. Here's how we ended part 1. "Now, the person telling you to tithe will default to the last group on the list.

    I'm imagining there will be those of you who will ignore this blog, because it goes against everything you've been taught about tithing. Stick with it and find out the truth. Then decide.

    First off, I apologize for the length of this entry, but there was just no good way to break it into two parts.

  • The Renewed Mind (2)

    Galatians 5:1 says “So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law”. So this is scripture and it is truth. The problem is that right behind this truth comes the suggestion by the enemy that it’s not possibl...
  • The Renewed Mind (1)

    Romans 12:2 says “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect”. Look again at what that scripture says. “And do not be conformed to this world&r...
  • The Work Has Been Done (2)

    Jesus said in John 5:19 He could do nothing of Himself except what He saw the Father do. Then He made it clear that we are in the same situation. In John 15:5 He said that without Him we could do nothing. Apart from him we can do nothing, and we have nothing. Jesus said this and it’s true...
  • The Work Has Been Done (1)

    Might as well not waste time. Might as well get some of you upset with me right from the start. That healing you keep begging God for, that provision you keep railing God about, that relationship you keep waiting for God to fix is not God’s to do. Let’s start with Mark 4:26-34 and prove ...
  • Making the Word of God of None Effect (2)

    Moving into part 2, lets start with Deuteronomy 28. Deuteronomy 28 lists the blessings and curses that would come upon the Israelites depending on their obedience or disobedience to God’s commands. As you study this well known chapter of Deuteronomy you’ll notice the things listed there...
  • Making the Word of God of None Effect (1)

    The Word of God is awesome! It has all the power we will ever need for every situation in our lives (Hebrews 4:12). All we have to do is mix it with faith and, praise God, a miracle (Hebrews 4:2)! If you've been viewing my blogs, you will notice that we’ve been doing a good job of killing som...

    Here's a reminder from Part 1 of this blog on Signs and Wonders. 1 “The same thing happened in Iconium. Paul and Barnabas went to the Jewish synagogue and preached with such power that a great number of both Jews and Greeks became believers”. They went right into the legalistic, r...
  • Signs and Wonders (1)

    In my blog on Miracles, God told me study and write about signs and wonders while I was writing the things God was telling me about Miracles. Cool God. He’s awesome. Well, here it is. Why is it the majority of the “church” continues to run after signs and wonders? They go to this ...
  • Miracles (2)

    Acts 3:1-7. Study that. Look what they said. “Such as I have”. You need to know what you have. You need to know you have power and authority, and you need to give it away for it to work and increase. Mark 2:1. And again He entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noi...
  • Miracles (1)

    Why is it that people keep looking for some “secret” method to getting or receiving a miracle. There’s not a 7 part formula. There’s just one way. Here it is. Believe on Him whom God has sent. Too many are chasing after miracles, rather than chasing after the miracle worker. ...
  • Sin Consciousness (2)

    As we continue on with this subject of Sin Consciousness, lets begin with Ephesians 2:4-9. 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have be...
  • Sin Consciousness (1)

    And it just keeps on keeping on. The shear lack of biblical understanding and ignorance permeates the majority of the “christian” community today. I actually think people are afraid of the truth, because it would cause them to set aside all their wrong believing. That of course would bru...
  • God's Empowering Presence (2)

    Continuing on from part 1 of this blog, let me start with this. “Old testament prophets call your sins to remembrance. New testament Grace anointed preachers/teachers call your righteousness to remembrance. Romans 3:21. “But now the righteousness of God without the law is...

  • Don't Let Things Move You (2)

    Now in that 17th verse of Acts 4 it says “17 But to keep them from spreading their propaganda any further, we must warn them not to speak to anyone in Jesus’ name again.” Let me say that teaching the gospel of Grace is not for wimps. The same way the Apostles were c...

    So, lets continue on with this subject of empty boats. Here's Luke 5. 3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. Jesus never gives up on empty people, ...

    Genesis 2:2 On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested from all his work. Why do we find it so hard to simply rest. We are such a busy people that we rarely take time to just sit and rest from all our work. I’m talking right now about our physical wo...
  • Love, Power, Authority in Total (2)

    We hear preachers saying “Holiness is necessary to get from God”. Listen close! I’m about to ruffle some religious feathers. Holiness will NOT make God love you more. Holiness will make you love God more. Holiness is NOT a prerequisite for God to have a relationship with you. ...
  • Love, Power, Authority in Total (1)

    All Love, All Power, All Authority. We have it, because God said so. “It’s not proper to receive something from Christ and not use it to further the Kingdom. Whenever God invites you into His supernatural presence and gives you extreme revelation, He doesn’t invite you as a visitor...
  • Repentance (2)

    As we continue with this subject let’s look at some instances here of repentance in the bible. In Luke 15:3-7, I didn’t notice the sheep repenting from running away or getting lost. The sheep simply yielded to the love of the shepherd. The only thing the sheep does is consents to be love...

    Another important subject. This one will by necessity have to be in two or maybe three parts. Here's part 1. Repentance???
