Fixing Things

One of my favorite stories seems to bear repeating today. A lady became quite angry with her pastor. I don’t remember what it was about at the time, but she was quite angry and felt equally as justified in her anger.  In her anger, she started a vicious rumor about the man that quickly spread […]

Out of Season

“Why should not my face be sad, when the city, the place of my father’s graves lies in ruins and its gates have been destroyed by fire?” Nehemiah 2:3  Nehemiah and his brethren were heavy of heart because of the condition of Jerusalem; and appropriately so. The city of their joy lay in ruins and […]

“Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but profuse the kisses of an enemy.” Proverbs 27:6 It fell upon my shoulders today to speak words to a friend that are very hurtful. I am sitting here in the quiet of my study weeping for my friend; yet, perhaps weeping for myself as well for the […]

A Tent of Meeting

“Now Moses used to take the tent and pitch it outside the camp, far off from the camp, and he called it the tent of meeting. And everyone who sought the LORD would go out to the tent of meeting, which was outside the camp” Exodus 33:7 O God, my God, it is this I […]

Ranking the Character of God

I have been carefully instructed once again that stodgy and rigid Scribes and Pharisees, bound in the chains of religion and not yet liberated by the New Grace continually seek to control men by outdated and not-prophetically revealed truth. Case in point: God’s character of LOVE is to be more highly regarded than God’s TRUTH. […]

You can scarcely name a Biblical patriarch, but he has set up an altar for his family, and offered spiritual sacrifices upon it. Joshua resolves upon this, […]

The Father and Family Worship

 Of late,  I have taken great encouragement from the writings of the early fathers of our nation, who were the chief priests and theologians of their households.  Many of these men were champions of faith for their wives and children and because of it they fathered preachers, teachers,  statesmen, heads of state – the great […]

Do I Consecrate or Condemn My Household?

The Scriptures emphasize the household as an altar from which the fire of pure worship should always burn. The Bible declares that God “will pour out His fury upon the families that do not call upon his name.”(Jeremiah 10:24).  Abraham was particularly commended for his faithfulness, God declaring, “for I know him, that he will […]

Maximizing the Impact of Fathers

God gives His call to fathers in Ephesians 6:4, “Fathers do not exasperate your children, instead bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.” God says that fathers are not to arouse deep anger in the hearts of their children, and He gives them a remedy so that this will not happen.
