CAUGHT UP IN HEAVENLY RAPTURES Revelation is what you know; mysteries are where you grow. This statement sounds very spiritual, but actually, it's the way of life. Everything that you knew and experienced at one time was a mystery. You stood in front of the schoolyard gate holding your mother's hand; your head was filled with the mystery of kindergarten. However, with your mother's prompting, you step through the gate, ...

RE-PURPOSING THE LOG IN YOUR EYE THAT YOU MAY SEE

It's summertime in our part of the world, and the little lemonade stands are popping up in my neighborhood. Most vendors or small children want to make a few coins to put in their piggy bank or spend on Candy.

 This is happening this summer because somewhere in our distant past, someone came up with the slogan "turn your lemons into lemonade."

Some distant relative of yo...

HEY MOM, I CAN SEE TOMORROW FROM HERE. Simply stated, without a target, you'll never hit a bull's eye. This brings me to the subject of spiritual sight into the days ahead of you.  Those who are leaders in the body of Christ have spent a significant amount of their focus on establishing a vision for the people. The scriptures tell us that people will be confused and lose their purpose without a vision.  It takes us right ba...

THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD IS YOU Here's a question to ponder while introducing you to our subject for today. Where is the line of demarcation between truth and heresy? Or, let me put it another way. How far can we go into a revelation of scripture until we get too extreme to believe? Well, obviously, I've asked questions that really have no answer. And I suppose I ask them just to point out that there is no end when it comes t...

BORN FOR THE STORM Some years ago, while having a family vacation on the coast of Oregon, I stood watching the Coast Guard train for rough weather. The purpose of the training was to prepare the young recruits for rescue in times of storms. The small craft they were on went into the most turbulent part of the channel, where the greatest danger was repeatedly practicing their skills preparing for the storm. My family and I stood on ...

SLEEP ON IT- YOU'LL FEEL BETTER IN THE MORNING My mother's wisdom continues to follow me to this day. How often did I hear those words? Son, go to bed and sleep on it; you'll feel better in the morning. I suppose in those days; I related that suggestion more to the natural healing of the body than I did to spiritual encounters. But as I matured in the Lord, I realized that her instructions for me to go to bed were an in...

THE NEVER NEVER LAND SYNDROME The classic story of Peter Pan, the lost boys, and Never-Neverland is a reflection of people you and I know; that never want to grow up and face the challenge and responsibility of adulthood.  In never never land, there were no clocks to remind them of the passing of time; there was no responsibility of going to work and paying the bills; it was the perfect setting for boys in their adolescence. Howeve...

LET'S TALK GOD TALK One of the first things I had to learn when traveling Internationally was to pick up and understand the idioms of the people I was speaking to. I love to inject humor into my speaking; it relaxes people and lets them know you're a natural person. One of our great charismatic speakers, Bob Mumford, said, "if you can get people smiling, then when you hit them in the mouth, you won't split their lip...

SORROW FOR JOY: BEST TRADE EVER I don't remember much of what I learned in the fifth grade, but I do remember Mr. Haley, soccer, baseball cards, and marbles.  Mr. Haley was a slight man with a balding head and a strange personality. Soccer was conducted on the playfield after lunch every day. Baseball cards were carried in my hip pocket to be used for serious trading. And marbles, well, marbles were always available for a quick...

THE VOICE OF GOD WITHIN YOU. In my journeys with the body of Christ, I have discovered that fear of deception overwhelms a significant portion of them. They believe that the power of deception is far greater than the power of revelatory truth. Because of this fear, the development of the kingdom of God has been dwarfed, and the maturity that God intended for us to be has been hindered. It has not been unusual to hear someone tell P...

The man in the middle.

Let me open up our time together by asking you a couple of questions.

Question number one why did Jesus come to earth?

Question number two what was the result of Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross?

Question number three what did that sacrifice do for us, and what are we to do with that?

I have found out that I often learn more by someone asking me a question. Questions will stimulate a part of our memory th...

You will go where you're looking. This year I celebrate over six decades of active ministry. And in those years of walking with the Lord, I have worked in various positions of service. You might say I have worked myself up from the mail room to the chief executive. In the church world, we would say I cleaned toilets and swept the floor, and also served as senior pastor. In quite a few of those years, I did both simultaneously. ...

Living from the past, not in the past. In the mid-1970s, we were on an amazing pastoral team in Southern California. It was one of the most riveting times of our life as we entered into the emerging charismatic movement. The church we were invited to be a part of was the epicenter in its region, and all nine of us pastors were up to our eyeballs, discovering things about God's kingdom that we had never experienced. Coming out o...

Gateway number 23-come in with me. I have been talking to you for some time now about the Bible being a gateway book, and when we open that book, we can go into the mysteries of God. Also, there are unique spots throughout the book that seems to be a more excellent Gateway than others. When you meditate upon them, heaven opens up before your spirit and takes you into places you've never been. The 23rd psalm is one of those vast...

The Hot Gospel. It's so hot that it will melt the hardest heart.  Today I found myself caught up in a whirlwind of information and began to feel the air leaking out of my soul. Everything I was hearing was terrible news and declaring that the world we know is going to collapse and fall apart. It wasn't long before I got a hold of myself, and like Samson, I shook myself and remembered who God is and what his plans are for us...

Jesus plus me equals three. That's a strange statement to open up the discussion of Christ in me, the hope of glory. The union of the godhead with the human race is a mystery that is still unfolding for the Christian church. We teach it to the limit of our knowledge, yet knowing something is being revealed today that is causing some to catch their breath in shock and others to rejoice because of it. When I was a young teenager,...

My most urgent appeal to you in the Lord is this you have nothing in common with the folly of the empty-minded masses; the days of conducting your lives and affairs in a meaningless way are over. ( mirror Bible Eph 4:17) The plea that the apostle Paul made to those in Ephesus is the same one I made to you today. What has happened to you and me at the cross and resurrection is beyond comprehension. As the scriptures say, the natural...

Good intentions versus God's will. To be like Jesus certainly must be the highest goal for any serious Christian. And I suppose there are various lists of important things it would include. Some would say the most important thing would be to heal the sick others may consider feeding the hungry or helping the poor.  However, I would suggest that you consider the most important thing to be like Jesus would be to obey the Father&#...

Owe, no one anything but love because love is the fulfillment of the old testament law. When we look at this verse in Romans 13:8, we see two subjects, both of them essential to our ongoing life in Christ.  The first subject is a major one that affects our life in 100 different ways. That's the subject of living debt-free. Paul said to owe no man anything but love. It's an interesting pushback that you get from most people ...

Road trip with God-you don't know where you're going, but you're having fun. Sixty-four years ago this summer, I left home for the first time to work in a revival meeting that my sisters were conducting in Coos Bay, Oregon. I was raised in a pastor evangelist home and was involved in the gospel ministry in some aspect all my life. Everything from carrying the instruments in and out of the church to singing specials and,...
