  The word Disciple is from the word discipline. In other words, disciples are disciplined. As disciplined disciples, we need to implement habits in our walk with God. For years it was believed in the personal growth community that it takes 21 days to develop a habit.  Recently however, some scientific studies and experiments have proven this to be a fallacy. According to Phillippa Lally; a health psychology researcher at Universi...

1 Peter 2:11 says: "Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul." The definition of a pilgrim says: One who journeys in foreign lands. One who travels to a shrine or holy place as a devotee. A pilgrim is always on the move. A pilgrim doesn't stay put for long. While they may pitch their tent in one place, they never do it for too long. The Bible says that we are p...

  Last week, Paul Maxwell, a former Desiring God writer and the author of the book The Trauma of Doctrine, has announced he is no longer a Christian.  It shocked a lot of people, and yet, he was only one more who bit the dust in the last couple of years. Since 2019, we have seen quite a few BIG names renounce their faith and basically leave Christianity. These BIG names are just the ones we know about. There are countless people wh...

  As we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series in this episode, we tackle the importance of loving others, or, as some versions of the Bible put it: charity, which is love in action. Jesus said to His disciples (and His future disciples): “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another....

What you don't know ''CAN'' hurt you  Nobody is edified or led adequately when knowledge is absent. As we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series, we now take a deeper look at the importance of knowledge. It has been my observation that knowledge in the body of Christ has suffered two major setbacks in recent years. It is scorned It is ignored This reminds me of the quote by Mark Noll in his book, The Scandal of ...

  What is Servant Leadership?  Servant leadership. The first time I heard the term, I was in my twenties. While I understood where the term came from, and to a certain degree what it meant, I still had a long way to go in applying it. First of all, the term itself seems like a comical contradiction. The two words seem like they don’t belong together. And yet, for Kingdom leaders, it just fits in line with other Kingdom principles. ...

    [embed]https://youtu.be/tc6J_2FCNrQ[/embed]     In this episode I (Sebastien) share two dreams I had around mid-January of 2021. I believe these two dreams are related. I also believe they have to do with the fall of mighty leaders in both Canada and the U.S. in the fields of Christianity, corporate leadership, and perhaps also political leadership.   Don't forget to watch our Broadcasts Live on Wednesdays @ 7:30 p.m. (...

The pitfalls of pride & false humility  Both Peter and James remind us in their respective epistles that “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” This week, as we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series, we will talk about the necessity and the benefits of humility. We’ll also address the pitfalls of pride and false humility. All great leaders in the Kingdom of God understood that without humility, there is no lea...

What is the One Thing God Cannot and Will Not Do?  Have you ever been asked the childish question: If God is all powerful, can He create a rock that even He wouldn’t be able to move? Believe it or not, I provide you with the answer to this cryptic question of the ages. The answer is YES, He can. In fact, He already Has created a rock that He cannot move. The rock that God cannot move is... Listen to the Broadcast to find out! As fo...

  What 4 Kingdom Leaders had to say about Joy    There’s a kid’s song that we’re all familiar with called: Down in my Heart The last couplet goes something like this: And if the devil doesn't like it he can sit on a tack Sit on a tack, Sit on a tack, Sit on a tack, And if the devil doesn't like it he can sit on a tack to stay. Well, guess what… The results are in, and the survey says that indeed the devil doesn’t like it wh...

Don't Let Online Haters, Moles and Trolls Burn You Out!James 3:1 says“Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.”   I (Sebastien) used to think this verse only applied to our judgement before God when we die. Well, as it turns out, I learned the hard way it also applies to the here and now.   Indeed, those who teach, or or are engaged in ministry...

Kingdom Leadership Series: Obedience  As we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series, we now address the importance of obedience in leadership.   1 Peter 1: 14-15 says, “As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct” (I Peter 1:14-15 ESV)   Now, some of you may say, “You’re teaching about leadership. But a leader is the one gi...

DON'T QUIT !!!  The New Testament was penned by the leaders of a fledgling church which was persecuted. As a result, these leaders felt it was very necessary to encourage other other believers by telling them about the rewards they would get through perseverance. This is the reason perseverance is a recurring theme all throughout the New Testament. But, after 2000 years of Church history, believers today still need perseverance...

  This week we begin a new series on ''Kingdom Leadership''. Make no mistake about it, as soon as you become a believer, a Kingdom citizen, there is a leadership call on your life. For many Christians, the call to leadership can seem intimidating. Some even think it's not for them. Nothing could be further from the truth. You, dear friend, just because you are salt and light, are looked up to as a leader in this...

For most of us, it’s perhaps difficult to associate Jesus with the words ‘Tough’ or ‘Hard’ in the same sentence.  Of course he was a Carpenter (physical labor anyone?) who chased the vendors from the Temple with the aid of a whip (yes, really), but in spite of this, we still perceive him as a mild-mannered, kinda long-haired hippie-looking, kind-to-children, soft-spoken teacher who is best known for turning the other cheek and teac...

With everything that is happening in America, we, like many other people, were shaken by the events of the January 20th, 2021 inauguration. We'd be lying if we said we weren't. However, we're not ready to throw in the towel. And neither should you! God is still on the throne and He still has a powerful plan for America. This isn't over! This fight is going the distance! Hang on, be still, hold the line, and see the ...

      Much unrest has followed the events following the U.S. election when Trump wasn’t officially re-elected. Since then, the church has been in prophetic shambles. I've never seen so much division! We’re all at each other’s throats. People are stoning the "prophets" who missed it. Other "prophets" are apologizing... and getting death threats in the backlash! I've been saying it for some time: Accusing the...

  Prophetic Dream: THE TIDAL WAVE IS COMING!!!    In this week's episode, I share a powerful prophetic dream that I was given on January 5th, 2021. I believe it serves as a sober warning for the Church of Jesus-Christ to prepare for turbulent times ahead. But it also serves as an encouraging word that if you have bold faith, you will benefit from God's supernatural protection! As always, Be Blessed and Thrive On! Elisabeth...

  You’ve probably heard the saying “Too much of a good thing ain’t good for you”, right? Well, in this week’s episode, we are exploring an important question for the remnant and the Christian truthers. The question is... How much information (or truth) is too much? And, conversely, how can we navigate the barrage of information and disinformation that comes our way every day? How much of the Enemy's plan should believers seek t...

  Sebastien Richard shares a prophetic dream he had on November 26, 2020. This is a warning urging you to prepare spiritually and physically for 2021. May God bless you as you trust in Him. UPDATE: The Dream was given on November 26. It was posted on YouTube on December 14 (yeah... we procrastinated) and the very next day (December 15) the Governement of Quebec implemented rules about non-essential purchases. Powerful!   Support t...
