Is God presently testing you in some area of your life? What has His testing revealed? Have you become bitter toward God because of where He has led you? Or have you come to trust Him more as a result of what you have gone through? Do you focus only at the problem at hand or do you focus on His divine Grace and provision that maintains you, sustains you, and creates something special to blossom and flourish in all aspects of your life? There is a treasure at the end of the… Continue

Greetings in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ!
Each year as Easter draws near, I’m reminded of God’s love and His unwavering commitment to us. The newness of life that we have in Him is beyond anything we can imagine (2 Corinthians 5:17). The reality of this was something I’m sure the disciples clung to while living and ministering alongside the Savior. They watched how He related to people from various walks of life. And they were probably spellbound at the hope He… Continue

As I look around America I see is a country that has lost its way; a nation that is a far reaching empire where its people still think we are a republic. Actually, they think we are a democracy and if we can just get along and dialog; things will change. I see people who are lost (that is they don’t know… Continue

I just finished the book The Book of Revelation Made Easy by Kenneth Gentry. I highly recommend it as a very assessable intoduction to Revelation. The following is an update to my introduction that I did a few years ago. Continue
The Apocalypse of the Lamb, His Bride, and the Great Whore
The book of Revelation (the Apocalypse) presents a conundrum to most modern American Christians. This is understandable because:
a) It is…

This is a wonderful response to the events in Egypt
by Anne Graham Lotz
Along with the rest of the Body of Christ worldwide, my attention has been riveted on the events unfolding in Egypt. My spirit resonates with the heart-felt cry for freedom of hundreds of thousands of people who have demonstrated in the streets. I have cried with them, danced with them, sung with them, and rejoiced with them as they have celebrated the unprecedented collapse of an oppressive… Continue

There are more than 143 million orphaned or abandoned children in the world today. Equivalent to nearly half of the U.S. population, this staggering number of young, helpless souls is difficult to imagine. Yet, Nations for Jesus (NFJ) believes each child is loved by God and created to know Him, which is why NFJ is taking bold steps to reach them with the gospel and provide for their needs. Continue

Have you ever wondered why it seems there are times when you hear God's voice clearly and times when you absolutely don't hear His voice? I've wondered the same thing and it's during those times that I've either had a major breakthrough or a breakdown. The "through" or "down" was always dependent on my ability to exercise faith and trust that what God said remained true regardless of how things looked. I've also found that there are a myriad of competing voices that seem to rise during… Continue

A clearly defined belief of Grace will produce a precisely persuasive ability to overcome all the "wish I had better thoughts" to "I know I am better thoughts" because of Christ. Decisively decide to strengthen your belief into the promises of God each moment your tempted not to, and success will not just be a dream a far off, but a reality right here- right now.

In my experience as a leader, communication is a vital element to being successful. Communication is so important, that you may be successful for a little while but after some time things will start to take its toll on you and your life. I am going to give a few examples from my own experience and some bible verses to help solidify the importance of communication.
In my first role as a Retail Store Manager, I was young and knew… Continue

Editors Note: The following message comes from Pattie Mallette, Justin Bieber's mom. This was provided to a select number of Christian leaders just before the release of Justin's movie, which just hit theaters. This is an amazing testimony that is worth reading. Please keep Pattie, Justin, and their family in your prayers.

I have my two girls with me this weekend, ages 11 and (almost) 14. With some reluctance, we jointly agreed to go see YouTube and teen sensation Justin Bieber's reality flick, "Always Say Always." Simply put, it was amazing.
While Facebook is now being credited for the revolution in Egypt, YouTube is the… Continue

What pumps you up each day?
For some of us, it’s a cup of coffee. For others, it’s the treadmill.
What works best for me is something that has become a ritual. Each morning, I wake up just before the crack of dawn. The house is silent, the birds are not yet chirping, everything is so peaceful.
I put on my sweatshirt and sweatpants, and tip-toe to the kitchen to make myself a cup of coffee. Then, along with my two buddies, our cats, Cash and Bella, I find my way to my… Continue

Why do you want to be in leadership or a leadership role? I think this is the most important question you have to ask yourself.
Is it out of necessity?
Is it because of a job promotion (more money)?
Is it the idea of being in charge?
Is it the idea of having power over people?
Is it just because you see something that you don’t agree with and you want to “make it right or fix it” the way YOU think it should be?
Is it the idea of everyone…

Question: "Why pray? What is the point of prayer when God knows the future and is already in control of everything. If we cannot change God's mind, why should we pray?"
For the Christian, praying is like breathing. It is easier to do it than to not do it. We pray for a variety of reasons. For one thing, prayer is a form of serving God (Luke 2:36-38
) and obeying Him. We… Continue

Question: "What is the meaning of life?" Continue
Answer: What is the meaning of life? How can purpose, fulfillment, and satisfaction in life be found? How can something of lasting significance be achieved? So many people have never stopped to consider these important questions. They look back years later and wonder why their relationships have fallen apart and why they feel so empty, even though they may have achieved what they set out to accomplish. An athlete who had…
