A Glimpse of a Father and Son and What Relationship Could Be

A Glimpse of a Father and Son and What Relationship Could Be

My father and I had a rather distant connection for the past 30 or so years.  In many ways we were estranged, though it seems strange to call it that.  Mostly, we just didn’t talk or connect.   I last saw him in September of 2010 when my oldest daughter was looking at colleges, and we…

Using our Brains in a World of Information and Technology

Using our Brain in a World of Information and Technology

There is some truth to the saying, “use it or lose it.”  Mostly, I’ve thought of this in terms of skills and muscles, but it also applies to our brains.  The brain is much like our muscles, the more we use it, the stronger and more capable it becomes. I was recently asked by someone…

Our Opinions Provide Comfort in the Absence of God’s Perspective

Our Opinions Provide Comfort in the Absence of God's Perspective

We all have opinions on things.  I have lots of opinions.  Some of them are probably worth something and others are mere thoughts without much merit.  Yet, we live the majority of our life based on our opinions of how things should or should not be done.  What is right and wrong.  How we think…

Behind Enemy Lines

We had so many questions from readers that we decided to expand the teaching included in this book.  Additionally, you will find a dedicated Question and Answer section in the appendix.  Not really a paper copy reader?  We've got you covered.  Our e-book format is available here.

Behind Enemy Lines takes a look at the power of the Holy Spirit and how we walk in victory rather than defeat and how that often creates questions among those we encounter. You will be reminded of your identity in Christ and be guided toward applying biblical principles of doing like Jesus did. You will uncover practical insights for participating in what God is doing in and through His children when they submit to His will.

Finding Forgiveness

Get your complimentary PDF excerpt of the Forgiveness chapter from Behind Enemy Lines.

"Forgiveness is a deliberate decision.  One chooses to forgive, it doesn’t simply occur because you stayed within a certain acceptable range of emotion in reaction to the offense.  If you do not choose to surrender the right to be hurt, then by default, you retain the right to be hurt and can use that at any point in the future against the offender.  When you choose to retain the right to remain hurt, offended, or wounded, you choose to remain a victim by default.  It is very difficult to be both a victim and a conqueror at the same time (Romans 8:37).

Since reconciliation is not commanded, we can forgive without having to continue to be harmed...."

Worship through Flagging

Why Use Flags in Worship?

“Why flags?”   Well, because there is Scriptural basis, complimented by abundant symbolism in color and movement, and because worship is part of our spiritual warfare arsenal.   Synonyms for flags include banner, sign, signal, standard, standard-bearer, and symbol.  While flags as we know them today are not mentioned specifically in Scripture, the present day…

Are Worship Flags Biblical?

Where does the use of praise banners and worship flags come from? Yes, flag worship is biblical, although there is no specific Scripture that commands us to use them in worship today.  Think of the flag bearer or standard bearer in biblical times.   We can even look to Scripture to see God in a…
