The Assurance of Bible Prophecy

In my last post, God’s Ten Most Wanted, I wrote about the certainty and accuracy of biblical prophecy. God tells us what’s going to happen before it happens! To develop this point further we only need to look at two Scriptures. First is Isaiah 46:9–10. It says, “Remember the former things of old, 
For I […] Continue reading…

God’s Ten Most Wanted

Ezekiel 38 and 39 give us detail of a coming attack on Israel by a confederation of peoples to the north of Israel, living somewhere around the Black and Caspian seas. Many attempts have been made to conclusively identify the individual named “Gog,” as well as the places named in these chapters. I’ve done a […] Continue reading…

Keys to Experiencing God: Intercessory Prayer

I wonder how many people never realize why a blessing came to them—that’s one of the mysteries of intercessory prayer. People praying for other people, who may have not prayed themselves, and blessing happens. I think it’s interesting to read what Mark 4:36 says, “Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along […] Continue reading…

The Importance of Ministering to Israel

I have a small confession to make—I’ve repeatedly read and studied the book of Romans, but somehow I missed the critical importance and significance of these few verses in chapter 15. Paul wrote: But now I am going to Jerusalem to minister to the saints. For it pleased those from Macedonia and Achaia to make a […] Continue reading…

Keys to Experiencing God: Prayer and Awakening

In my last post I tried to separate the words revival and awakening—revival is for the Church and awakening is for the nation. With all that’s happening around us, it’s obvious to me that we need both and we need to understand that neither can or should come without significant prayer for God’s help and […] Continue reading…

Keys to Experiencing God: Prayer and Revival

When we think about words like revival and spiritual awakening we have to first understand their meaning and we need to commit to praying for both to happen. Revival concerns the Church. It involves asking God to revive His Church from the complacency it is in. It’s a call for the Church to move out […] Continue reading…

Keys to Experiencing God: Complacency or Commitment?

As I look back over the last few months and about how we need to experience God more deeply and fully, I’m bothered by what is happening in our nation, in the church, especially in the U.S., and our people and I need to ask, “Are we committed or complacent?” I’m reminded of the first-century […] Continue reading…

Keys to Experiencing God: Fasting and Repentance

Scripture gives us several examples of people who chose to fast and that act of emptying themselves led to prayer and, quite often repentance. David fasted many times in his life as God transformed him and took him from the obscurity of a shepherd’s life in his father’s fields to the throne of Israel and […] Continue reading…

Keys to Experiencing God: Return to the Lord

The writer of 2 Kings gives King Hezekiah of Judah (715–686 B.C.) very high marks. His works are favorably compared to King David, his ancestor. He is credited with sweeping reforms of Judah’s temple worship. He restored the Passover celebration and it was such a time of joy that 2 Chronicles 30:26 records, “Since the […] Continue reading…

Keys to Experiencing God: Understanding the Big IF

2 Chronicles 6 and 7 give us a vivid picture of God, and the power of humility, prayer and repentance on individuals as well as a nation. The specific event is the dedication of the Temple by Solomon. The work that he was called by God to do was completed and after the Ark was […] Continue reading…
