If we first ask God what He wants us to do for Him what we need for Him to do for us is included.

Since the truth can be found in the Scriptures archaeologists are looking in the wrong places but they just don't dig it!

If you are floored by the power of the Holy Spirit, it is Meant for you to hit the deck.


A "comfort zone" is merely a well fortified connscience.


Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.


If we allow the devil to switch our train of thought onto his track our destination becomes depression, despair, and desperation. And the end of the line - suicide. But being overcomers will get us back on track.

Some contend salvation includes the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
But it only testifies to the fact they do NOT know their Bible. The following passage is addressed to the chiledren of God. So Jesus is instructiong them to ask, seek, and knock until they get the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Luke 11:9-139 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

Luke 11L9-1310 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?

12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?

13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

This obedience school is not an elective.
those who flunk can try again -- after the raptire of the graduates.


One exhorts us to change -- fills the back rows.
The other is we don't need to -- most popular.


Those who know what they should be doing for God but do not do it


Without conviction there us no benediction.

Spiritual growth can be measured by the change in our priorities.

The Regret of Regrets

Just as those who have lost a loved one regret not haveing dome more for them, how much more will luke-warm Christians regret that they hadn't done more for the lord.

A New Point of View

As, with age, "the things of this world grow strangly dim" "I will magnify the Lord".

My Favorite Poem

Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;
For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.

Proof of Resurrection

Pentecost proved Christ's resurrection since He sent the Holy Spirit from Heaven.
Pentecost can be the Christian's proof of a personal resurection since only Christian's are eligible to receiver it.

The True Church

The true church is one that the Holy Sprit always attends and He Doesn't just sit in the balcony - He is the one who ushers in the power of God.

The Great Ommission

The Great commission puts a trip on every disciple of Christ.
It is the ultimate test of our obedience. To not go is to say no.

The Ultimate Bailout

We owed a debt we could not pay but once we declare bankrupsy, Jusus will pick up the tab.

Ready To Deal?

If you want something from God be ready to deal.

Some Random Thoughts

A Vital Download
Forgiveness is a vital anto-virus scan and delete option.

Some Random Thoughts
Tradition is doctrinal rigormortis.

Ritual is a verbal pew cushon.
Many sermons just fluff up the pew ushions.

Conviction is the Holy Spirit's jump-start.
But we must step on the gas and go where we are told.

Being On Standby

Waiting on the Lord is not just waiting for Him to do something for us. It is being available to be told what He wants us to do for Him or someone else.


Going All Out For The Second Blessing

Luke 11:9-13 says those who are earnestly seeking the baptism in the Holy Spirit should ask, and keep on asking, seek and keep on seeking, knock and keep on knocking. Whispering, peaking, and tapping just won't get it.

For The Trigger Happy

Waiting on the Lord is to subordinate our iniative.
It means getting it right the first time.
It avoids ready, fire, aim.

What Is on Your Plate?

Many, many Christians don't just put the boldness and the power of the Holy Spirit on the back burner, they are even what's cooking.

The Need to Stay Tuned

Romans 12:2 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Transformation is to be open and willing to allowing the Holy Spirit to edit,delete and update our presuppositions. "Yes, but...." Breaks the connection. "Yes, Lord" gives Him the password.

Holy Spirit Freeware

The baptism in the Holy Spirit is freeware but each Chirisian must go to the Jesus website and download it and install it. However, we must have previously installed Jesus as our Lord and Savior.
And as we grow in our dedication and commitment, He will upgrade it.

The Clean Plate Club

The Bible is God's cornucopia, but each Christian is to eat and digest whatever The Holy Spirit puts on their plate and with no leftovers.

The Anti-Christians

Those who claim thay are Christians but by their actions turn others away from Christ are the spirits of anti-Christ.

The living Bible

The only "living Bible" is the one brought alive by the Power of the Living Author, the Holy Spirit. He also has the correct version.

Monday, September 05, 2005

The Great Barrier Belief

That the salvation measure of the Holy Spirit is all there is.

That the claim is the same as the proof.

That the part is the whole.

That the promise is the fullfillment as well as the confirmation.

Hohum Or Yummy Yummy?

Christian growth to maturity is continually turning over a new leaf but cherished presuppositions closes the book.

For those much of the Bible is written in invisible ink.

They are looking through the leyhole instead of opening the door.

To be full gospel is to want more. Otherwise they are settling for less.

And do we want more or are we satisfied with what we have?

My Final Prayer

When I can no longer do what Jesus wants me to do, I want Him to do what I want Him to do -- take me home.

A Great Delusion

Many Christians believe they are being "God like" because they change not.

The Second Blessing

The importance of the baptism in the Holy Spirit is only secondary to the importance to our being born-again. But without it the church would have never been born in the first place.

Children Who Die

Children who die get a new Heavenly foster home.

Risky FAith

Faith ins believing we are born-again but having no inclination to proving it.

An Answer To Prayer

A coyote had two skunks cornered in a cave when one said, "Let us spray." And God scent the coyote on his way.

A Divine Edict

Every Christian is called to be a fisher of men.
But they need the line of the gospel,the hook of conviction, and the bait of signs and wonders. And they need to be willing to get into deep water.

The Ultimate Bailout

The natural man owes a debt that he can't pay, even by refinancing.
But if he is willing to claim spiritual bankruptcy, Jesus will pickup the tab.

The Easy Way Out

Speculatiing about what a Bible passage means, is more comfortable than admitting we just don't know.

The Light of Truth

The Scriptures must be examined in the light of the
Holy Spirit's revelations -- not in the light of our presupositions. If we want to get it right, we need the right Light. The wrong light will give us a dim view of the truth.

God's One-two Blessing

Being born-again enables the Holy Sprit to indwell us but it takes Jesus' baptism in the Holy Spirit to empower us.

A Common Tragedy

The Holy Spirit has amazing gifts for those who will use them but tragically they don't fit in with most Christian's plans.

Healing Class Report

Hi! Last night we had nine in attendance.
Maria gave her testimony of her miracle healing.
I gave mine about my testimony being included in a new book.
However, she also has had a chronic pain in her ankles which she described as a six on a scale of one to ten. I prayed for her and it went to a zero.
Jewel has had a problem with vertigo from time to time. I prayed that her inner ear be restored to normal. As I did so she noticed that her ears were opening us and she could hear better.
She also brought a friend named Rose who had a chronic back and hip problem with her right leg being shorter than her left. I did the leg thing, the hip thing and the arm thing. She was astonished to see movement in each case, especially her hips.
From the sensations she experienced there is reason she was totally healed. At least the pain was gone.
I then did a group arm thing and to the amazement of all there were arms moving without anyone touching them. With Anna she said something about it blessing her.
Other than that, not much happened. Hal

The Trinity

Granted, there are unfathomable mysteries about the Trinity that are beyond our comprehension but that does not preclude our having a working relationship with Him as our Comforter, Teacher, Counselor, and Guide.

The Necessity of Pentecost

If it were not for Pentecost, Jesus would have died in vain.

The Bible as a Menu

Many Christians view the Bible as a menu from which they feel free to choose whatever agrees with them. But obedience will cure their indigestion.

The Claim is Not the Same

To say we are a Christian is only a claim until our works proclaim it.

Another Dodge

Another dodge of those who are not ernesly asking, seeking, and knockng to receive the Holy Spirit's power is that they already have it. But where is the beef?

Free Will

To create man in His own image, God had to give us free will.
But our eternal destiny depends on how we execise it.

God's Preference

God first uses a carrot to get our attention but keeps a pitchfork handy - so be sure to eat your veggies.

The World Versus the Spiritual

The world shouts; God whispers.
The world uses headlines; God uses fine print that makes us squnt.

God's Love

God's love is gift wrapped so we must unwrap it.

The Gift of Helps

For those who want an excuse for not seeking the any of the nine spiritual gifts they have a convenient out. It is called the gift of helps. And they define it to apply to whatever they wish.

Spiritual Gifts

The Bible says the Holy Spirit decides who get what gifts, but his favorites are those He know will use them as He directs.


If you think we are not in the Biblical last days, get ready to duck.
