Psa. 142:5 ¶ I cry to you, O LORD;
I say, “You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.

King David taught us to worship. He was obviously a talented song writer and musician, 3000 years later we are still singing his songs. What is it about David’s songs and David’s worship that effects us? There is obviously something different about his Psalms that have grabbed out attention over all these years. That unseen ‘something’ is called the anointing. There is an unseen substance that r..

How good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head. Psalm 133:1–2

What is the life of the church? What makes it different from all other societies and organizations? The answer is Christ, He is the difference and our source of life. Recently, I found myself fixating on what I perceived as weaknesses or blemishes in our church. The Lord began to correct me only as He can, His correction came in the simplest yet most profound way. It..

Psa. 73:26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

For most people joy is that elusive dream. Everyone thinks they know what will finally complete their joy but I don’t think any of us really have it quite right. Why would I say that? I sat that because of a life time of observations. The athlete never has enough titles (ask Tiger Woods), the beautiful face is never quite right (check with Hollywood on that), and the coffers of the rich are ne..

Is. 55:1, 2 – “Ho! Everyone who thirsts,
Come to the waters;

And you who have no money,

Come, buy and eat.

Yes, come, buy wine and milk

Without money and without price.

Why do you spend money for what is not bread,

And your wages for what does not satisfy?

Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,

And let your soul delight itself in abundance.
I have to laugh at my first impression of the laughter in revival meetings in 1994. I had never seen anything like that before, I ne..

Psa. 73:25,26 ¶ Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides You, I desire nothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

It has been said you can evaluate the character of a person by the things that they value. That is a really powerful thought. What do your precious treasures and enjoyments say about you? That brings us to the real beauty and power of spiritual conversion, our whole value system is turned on its head by the Lord. ..

II Cor. 3:18, “But we all with open face, beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image, from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

Something is dreadfully wrong with our world. Mankind wanders around in darkness but actually thinks he has perfect vision. The darkness has corrupted our hearts so that our view of everything is skewered. Our perception of everything from money to property, from marriage to family, and from gender confusion to sexual..

Matt. 16:15-17 ¶ He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven”.

I was desperately searching for God in 1973. I had pretty much run the gamut of spiritual options; I had gone to Bahai faith meetings, checked out the Divine Light Mission, and gone to the feasts at the..

John 6:35 ¶ And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst”.

Food keeps us alive. Obviously, we eat for more than survival, pleasure also comes into play, but food is the very strength of our life. As the old adage goes, “you are what you eat”. That’s why what Jesus taught in today’s verse is so important, our spiritual food determines what and who we become. Jesus called this spiritual food our daily bread. ..

MERRY MONDAY BY PARRIS

-“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” Heb.10:23

There is something special about going to the corporate assembly and experiencing corporate worship. But you should know by now I am biased. It’s been a neat journey since the age of 16 waking up every Sunday and going to church to experience worship with my brothers and sisters, hear a Holy Ghost messag..

Matt. 13:44 ¶ The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

You can learn a lot about someone when you discover their treasure. Everyone has one; from the homeless man’s shopping cart to the rich man’s yacht, different things are precious to different people. You can evaluate a person’s spiritual condition by their value of the Lord. Jesus was talking about that in today’s verse..
