Pastor Dana Prophetic Dream – Sept. 7, 2020

Pastor Dana Coverstone’s dreams continue.  God has chosen him as the vessel to bring these prophetic visions forward, but I can’t imagine the toll it’s taking on him.  This is heavy stuff.  I believe that America has reached the point of no return.  The antichrist spirits have infiltrated to such an extent that the hard…

Pastor Dana Prophetic Dreams – Sept. 4, 2020

This video from Pastor Dana Coverstone details a series of dreams God gave him between August 28 and Thursday, September 4, 2020.  In these dreams God advances the calendar into December and January of next year as the warning of what is to come. FYI – The Baltic Dry Index is an important indicator for…

What Are We Praying For?

This post will probably cause many people to disagree with me because it runs against the grain of what people want.  They think they’re in line with God’s purposes; they use Scripture to justify their position; they pray intently.  Yet, their desired result continues to slip away. What is this unpopular position I hold that’s…

Spiritual Authority & Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Ever since reading about Dietrich Bonhoeffer, there’s been one aspect of his life and service to the Lord that’s bothered me.  We know Bonhoeffer best through his book The Cost of Discipleship.  It’s here where Bonhoeffer discusses the price that must be paid to serve God in challenging and difficult times.  And how hard that…

A Chance Encounter With a Sister in Christ

Away from our normal environs, my wife and I were walking on a Florida beach late in the afternoon when I spotted a younger asian lady sitting alone, reading what could only be a Bible.  I resolved on our way back that I would stop and talk with her. When we returned some twenty minutes…

Jesus Glorified – How Does That Work?

In church on a recent Sunday our pastor gave us a good reminder.  He emphasized the dual nature of Jesus: fully God and fully man—what is called the hypostatic union—which is completely incomprehensible to us.  We can understand half of one and half of the other, but 100% of both?  Does that make sense in…

Whom Will God Rapture? – The Philadelphia Church

Have you ever heard someone say, “God is a gentleman; He would never force someone into heaven who doesn’t want to go?”  If that’s true, and many of us believe it is, then why do we insist that God will force Christians (i.e. those who are truly saved versus those who simply consider themselves Christians),…

Martyrdom & NAR

Because of the ten years I’ve been associated as a volunteer with Voice of the Martyrs (VOM), I’ve gotten a perspective of the church and of Jesus Christ that, frankly, few Christians are privileged to witness.  In this time, I’ve read the classic book by Richard Wurmbrand, Tortured For Christ, a couple of times and…

Marijuana & This Present Darkness

For those of you who have read This Present Darkness, you may have seen what author Frank Peretti wrote about so vividly enter your own communities.  The novel depicts the town of Ashton that has been targeted by dark forces that intend total domination.  It portrays spiritual, geographical, territorial entities that control this community combatted…

Rapture Interest – A Contrarian Indicator

There’s no shortage of financial advice “out there” that is either freely accessible or available through a subscription service.  One of the sources that I’ve found useful in this economic realm is Stansberry Research.  They have a number of different newsletters covering the gamut of investments by many different writers, but the hallmark of Stansberry…
