The message of the Kingdom of God has always been and will forever be difficult to swallow.  The ways of God’s kingdom are contrary and opposing to our nature.  That’s why Jesus had to be the greatest “shock jock” of all time. A shock jock is generally a speaker whose mannerism and message are typically…

There are many requisites in life that require prerequisites. A requisite is a necessary and appropriate component for a specific purpose.  For example, walking is a requisite for living.  Although many people have lived successful lives without walking, their handicaps have limited them in many areas.  Walking has a prerequisite… crawling.  Experts have proven that…

The proverbial roller coaster metaphor of the “up and down” inconsistency of the church, throughout history, is quite apparent.  If you’re any kind of student of church history, you’ll notice this pattern of irregularity and variation in the universal church’s beliefs, values and doctrine. We, as individuals, are a microcosm of the corporate condition of…

This Sunday we begin a new message series.   We will attempt to take that which is the most unfathomable and profound and attempt to present it in a simple and uncomplicated manner.   This series will be about the Bible. We’ve titled the series, World’s Best Seller.  And rightly so, it’s earned that title since Johannes…

Proverbs 25:28 Our daily Morning Prayer meetings usually have a Spirit-led theme.  When I awake the Holy Spirit usually leads me to a specific subject matter that requires prayer and intercession.  This morning we prayed for and concerning self-control. Spirit-led self-control…

In the last several days, I’ve come to experience a different facet on fasting.  Now, I’ve never been one to fast on a continuous basis.  For me, fasting must be led by the Holy Spirit.  I have too big of a love affair with food.  But when the Lord has led me to fast and I…

I still believe that the only thing that changes cities is the POWER of GOD!  We live in the age of postmodernism and the church is beginning to embraced it wholeheartedly.  There is nothing wrong with change.  I’m a firm believer that kingdom methods change with the culture but the message should NEVER change. Postmodernism…

I love Holy Week.  This is a great season for those who trust in Christ.  It’s during this time that the Bible comes alive in me.  I know… there are many out there that say, “Every week should be Holy Week!”   True. But the reason holidays are set apart is because they’re supposed to be…

Today is Holy Monday.  The next day, after the Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem (Palm Sunday), Jesus demonstrates to us the principle of the cursed fig tree.  Anything that does not produce fruit is disconnected from its original intent, therefore dying a slow death.  God help us! (Mark 11:12-14) But later that day, He enters into…
