Is Deliverance A Thing of the Past?

The church in America is seriously under attack, this is nothing new. What is disturbing is that there are thousands upon thousands (I think I’m low balling this estimate here) of unprepared ministry leaders who are “trying” to operate in the arena of deliverance. Friends, this is a bad combination. It’s like being on a battlefield with a water pistol and you don’t even have any water. We are seeing a surge in new ministries but what we are not seeing more of is people who know how to worship and people who’ve experienced a radical, life changing deliverance. If we don’t have a measure of deliverance from bondages that hinder us, we are just a bunch of cheerleaders meeting every week that is ineffective in the Kingdom. I’m not mocking gathering at a church building at all. They are necessary for gaining instruction in the word and spiritual strength. However, we need to keep worship, prayer, and deliverance on our radar so that lives will be transformed. The true call of the church is to minister to the unsaved.

Foundational Truths

BB2013I take great pride in letting people know I’m from New York City. In my opinion, it was the best place in the world to grow up. In NYC, there exists such a variety of cultures that make living there very exciting. I was raised in the borough of Brooklyn, NY yet love to share little known facts about New York City in general. Why? Because I love my city! Recently, while in attendance at a seminar Continue reading “Foundational Truths”

The Blessing of a Judas

Luke 22:47-49

It’s that time of year again. The spring season will be kicked off by Easter or Resurrection Day as some refer to it and I went to see a new movie about the life of Christ.  There is nothing new there; millions of us seem to become more spiritual at this time of year as it is hailed the MOST HOLY season. It’s considered a holier time of year than Christmas for many. What was most poignant for me during this film was that my heart focused on something new. Like most people, I usually focus on Christs’ death and resurrection, but not this time. Continue reading “The Blessing of a Judas”

Engage the Edit Button

 

EDITWhen I was a kid, I would say anything that popped into my head! Initially, I thought this was a great quality while family members thought “cute” when I was young. I thought it was wonderful to just have the freedom to say whatever was on my mind at any given moment. I felt it was liberating and anyone who didn’t share my view was “oppressed” by what society deemed acceptable. I thought my outspokenness was a Continue reading “Engage the Edit Button”

Are you the Bullseye of a Spiritual Attack?

The spiritual climate among believers is pretty much at an all time high. Every soldierprophetic person, ministry or book is pointing out that a tremendous move of God is about to take place. The book of revelation is more alive in our lifetime than ever before and even Hollywood is citing biblical references in movies. Our society is unraveling to the point that even the most faithful are backsliding as leaders are falling into sin.

One message that is clear is that Christ followers must keep their ear to the ground to hear what the spirit of God is speaking in terms of direction. We are all aware spiritual attacks occur, but how do we know we when we’re the bulls eye? Is there a way to know? Continue reading “Are you the Bullseye of a Spiritual Attack?”
