-“And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into His image with intensifying glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit” 2 Cor. 3:18 Berean

Our good friend Kelanie Goeckler wrote a song called “The New has Come” and in her lyrics she sings “I am becoming like the One I’m beholding. The old is gone, and the new has come”.

The more we behold the scripture, behold Christ in His intimacy and behold the love of God a..

Psa. 73:25 Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
David taught us to connect our whole life to our passion for God. It was David’s passion for the Lord that called him into service, filled him with courage when facing powerful enemies and dangers, caused him to birth twenty-four hour worship, to release spontaneous and prophetic worship that still lives today, and also satisfied and sustained David until he took his last breath. David wasn’t perfe..

The things that are despised, did God choose, yea and the things that are not.
1 Corinthians 1:28
What an unusual God we have. He chooses the least likely to be His tools, exactly what we would never do. I can remember as a young Christian thinking how great it would be if this rock star or that celebrity would become a Christian. I used to think that would be the greatest thing ever and surely many people would be converted. It took a while for me to learn that that was not the Lord’s way of o..

1John 4:8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

Have you ever thought about John’s description of God, “God is love”? Many would think that this really means love is God or the new age thought that this love, or God, is in all mankind. Not! God is love is not anything like love is God. God’s love is eternal, no beginning and no end. God has always been love. If God has always been love who did He love before creation? His Son of course. This love the Father has for t..

Rev. 5:5,6 – And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals. And between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.

I read this sermon, THE EXCELLENCY OF CHRIST, by Jonathan Edwards for the first ti..

He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine
and making it known to you.

John 16:14
Our life is drastically different from the unsaved population of the world. It is way different than any of us can even perceive. We taste the edge of what has happened in our lives and it is annihilating. What makes our lives so different? We are actually inhabited by Christ. His Spirit is in us and on us, there couldn’t be anything more profound. The scary thing is this, some people think Christ is in..

Is. 26:3 – You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.

Let’s face it, the world is filled with trouble. People are filled with trouble, and if we aren’t careful, their troubles will swallow us up. It is a promise but a tricky endeavor to be in the world but not of it. Have you found the key to that kind of life? It boils down to this, you have to be filled with a supernatural peace to be unaffected by the world. How do you get there? That’s the tricky p..

Eat, O friend; yea, drink; yea, be drunken.
SOS 5:1
I often think of a revival video of Kenneth Hagin that was recorded not long before he went to be with the Lord. He was ministering at what seemed to be a minister’s conference when the anointing fell on him powerfully, actually it fell on almost everyone at the meeting. Brother Hagin was incredibly intoxicated and filled with joy, he was obviously enjoying the presence of the Lord. One thing that I vividly remember from the video was him stopi..

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you.
John 14:27
There are different kinds of peace that we can enjoy in this world. There is the peaceful calm at the sunrise, sometimes its like the world is waiting in silence for God’s next great adventure. Then there is a peace that comes when it appears by natural circumstances that we are in a place of provision and safety. There is also a peace that comes after a fruitful day of hard work, gratification that your labor will be well rewarded. A..

Psa. 65:1,2 ¶ Praise is due to you, O God, in Zion,
and to you shall vows be performed. O you who hear prayer,
to you shall all flesh come.
Did you ever think that prayer was a little unusual? You talk to someone who is unseen as if He knows everything and can do anything. Actually, He can and He does. He knows our struggles, our worries, our doubts, and even our temptations. He can actually relate because He has been there, He became a man and was tempted in all ways like we are. He is still ..
