The Great Commission

The Great Commission


If you ask most people what the great commission is, most likely they will say "make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father. Son and Holy Spirit."

You're dead

You're dead

Your old self was crucified with Jesus. You can’t kill it because it is already dead. It is a gift of salvation just as important as the gift of righteousness.

Which mountain will you climb?

Which mountain will you climb?

Climbing Mount Sinai brings you into the presence of death, judgment and the law. Climbing Mount Zion brings you into the presence of heaven, mercy and Jesus Himself.

Join me

Join me

Lord I praise you because you are worthy of more praise than I can possibly realize. There is no way for me to know all the ways that you have acted on my behalf and loved me. For this reason, I bow my knee before you Father God, as everyone in heaven and on earth get their name from you, their truest identity.

Man your gates

Man your gates

In my time with the Lord this morning, He sent me to Nehemiah 3. Nehemiah was rebuilding the wall of the city that was destroyed by the Babylonian invasion. Along with rebuilding the wall he rebuilt the gates of the wall. Holy Spirit told me that there was a spiritual meaning to the wall and all the gates. The wall represents the wellbeing of our spiritual lives. This is what He showed me about gates that are found in that chapter.

Wearing the red poncho

Wearing the red poncho

I had a teachable moment from God on a recent evangelism trip with Time To Revive to Minnesota. It involved a red poncho as a symbol of my self-effort.

Stronghold to victory

Stronghold to victory

I believe that God wants to build victory right on top of your greatest defeat. He wants to take the material used to build a stronghold in your soul and burn it as the sacrifice that brings forgiveness and healing and strength in Him.

Set your sail

Set your sail

Our spiritual lives can be compared to sailboats and in our journey with Jesus we will encounter concepts that seem like contradictions until we learn to navigate through them. They include the understanding of the roll of grace and the roll of works, being free from the law yet being obedient to God, being intentionally active in pursuing the Holy Spirit while remaining surrendered to Him.

Spiritual software

Spiritual software

Just like a computer has operating software that allows it to function and carry out specific tasks, we have spiritual operating software that God has given us the challenge to write. Our mind, emotions, and will are constantly being told how to function based on what we believe to be true. Our beliefs become our operating software that controls our lives. Our mind, will and emotions will operate as if whatever we believe is true, even if it is a lie.

Where do you live?

Where do you live?

When we were living in the darkness of satan’s kingdom we had no eternal purpose and no hope. The light of the gospel now illuminates our life and purpose in God’s kingdom. There has been a transfer of residence. Not just when we die but even while we live here on foreign soil.

Lord, I receive.

Lord, I receive.

Lord, I receive who You have called me to be.

Lord, I receive the fact that who You have called me to be includes a plan for my life and death.

Lord, I receive that You have work for me to do that was pre-ordained specifically for me before I was ever born.

Where are you?

Where are you?

It’s a question my wife asks me sometimes when I am in her physical presence but I am somewhere else in my spirit. I believe God asked a similar question to Adam and Eve after they sinned in the Garden of Eden.
