Genesis 39:3 – The Lord’s Favor

When bad things happen to us, we cry out with the age-old question, “Why me, Lord?”  Perhaps we’ve served God well and faithfully and haven’t deviated from Him.  It could even be said that we walked in His righteousness; we’ve lived and been upright in the Name of Christ.  Then the roof caves in over…

Matthew 10:28 – Fear

Jesus knew the price His followers would have to pay in this wicked world.  The promise of eternal life in Him comes with a high cost.  Yet, Jesus said that it’s worth every penny we own and every drop of blood running through our veins.  Who we fear and bow down to, even in great…

Matthew 10:25 – Rejecting Jesus

Upon Jesus calling His disciples, He soon sends them out to the towns and cities of Israel so as to gather her “lost sheep” (Matthew 10:6).  He instructs the men to proclaim the Good News by telling everyone that “the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 10:7).  Jesus gives them the power and authority…

Pastor Dana Coverstone – August 24, 2020 Dream

This video by Pastor Dana Coverstone discusses three recent dreams he had, the latest of which was Monday, August 24, 2020.  If you’ve followed Pastor Dana’s dreams, you know that they do not foretell a good ending for this nation.  As we come into the Fall months, the context of the dreams becomes worse and…

Pastor Dana Coverstone – August 10, 2020 Dream

Below is another foreboding dream by Pastor Dana Coverstone.  You can believe or you can mock.  I happen to believe that he’s hearing from God, and that God is clearly warning His church to get ready for what’s to come.  The church can bury its head in the sand because it doesn’t believe in prophetic…

A Jeremiah Nation

I submit to you that America is a Jeremiah nation in a Jeremiah moment.  This was made clear to me as I came across an article by Michael Snyder on his End of the American Dream blog: http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/something-big-is-coming-pastor-dana-coverstone-just-had-another-prophetic-dream-about-the-month-of-september Snyder notes two items of importance. Another prophetic dream by Pastor Dana Coverstone that he recounts as…

Prophetic Dreams? How Can This Be?

As many people know by now, Pastor Dana Coverstone’s series of prophetic dreams have caused quite a stir.  As I write this, the two videos on the dreams that he posted are starting to close in on two million views.  In addition, others have made videos discussing the dreams, and there are several hundred thousand…

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…

The $100 Challenge

Have you taken the $100 challenge with your faith?  Some ambitious secular people do it when they determine they will pursue success at all costs.  Maybe it’s something we should consider doing to pursue a life in Christ. Some years ago a fledgling,and highly ambitious, stock market trader by the name of Minervini challenged a…

NAR’s Last Days Revival

Our church has a seniors’ ministry which I’ve studiously avoided.  I certainly qualify in the appropriate age range, but I engage in a bit of denial.  When I meet people and they ask me what I do or if I’m retired, I tell them I don’t use the “R” word; I’m too busy.  That being…
