Our Model of Before-and-After Christian Faith

The apostle Peter is remembered mainly in Christian tradition for his crucifixion night desertion. Yet, after his conversion, Peter learned to hold his tongue, raised the dead, and was so anointed with God’s healing power that the people “…even carried the sick out into the streets and laid them on cots and pallets, so that when Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on any one of them” (Acts 5:15)… Peter is the only mortal who ever walked on water, and was used to birth the Gentile Church. This is how the Word of God remembers him, and we should too.

The Truth About the Resurrection

John 21 tells us Jesus worked one last earthly ministry miracle the third time He appeared to the disciples on the sea of Tiberias beach. Jesus called out to Peter, Nathaniel, James, and John who questioned their catch as they returned from a fishing trip. When they acknowledged “none,” Jesus encouraged them to try again, and their nets were filled to capacity. To make an accurate account of His appearance, John even counted the number of their catch (153 fish)…

Mary Magdalene Was Not A Whore

As we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus this Easter season the church will rehearse the great truths of our miraculous birthing. Included among them will be Mary Magdalene’s role in discovering our risen Lord. And once again in popular Easter movies, pageants, and sermons, she will be cast in the role of a whore. But Scripture teaches otherwise.

The Battle of Gog

There is a prophesied end-times war in the Old Testament book of Ezekiel that will once again unleash God’s divine power to utterly destroy an enemy that comes against Israel. Ezekiel says God will turn this enemy about and put a thought in his head to come out of the north to attack…

Christ in You – the Hope of Glory

We all want to be raptured. I certainly do. But the interpretation of a rapture teaching by Jesus in John 14 shrouds the most impacting New Testament revelation Jesus disclosed in the Gospels: the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in Christ’s born-again church. We are the Father’s house today in the earth. Was Jesus in John 14 really interested in an event He knew would take place two thousand years from that time when He was preparing to suffer the Cross to give birth to His church? Or was he interested in the birth of His church?

The Truth About the Rapture – Eschatology’s Promise of Deathlessness

Before Jesus Christ’s return to the earth, the Bible predicts a resurrection and a rapture. Why? And what are they? This is a perplexing question the Bible answers fully. The apostle Paul writes the simutaneous events will happen at the “last” trumpet.

Stay on the Water

When the disciples saw Jesus walking toward them on the stormy Galilee waters none could comprehend the site. After crying out their fears of seeing a ghost, Jesus called out. “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water,” Peter cried back. And Jesus said, “Come!” And Peter got out of the boat, and WALKED ON THE WATER and came toward Jesus.” Jesus empowered Peter to miraculously WALK ON WATER when he set his eyes on Jesus and believed His word…

Pulpit Vacancy at Menlo Park

I’m still not sure how I got the nod to chair our little church’s pulpit committee last summer. When I asked what led to my choice, I was simply told, “It’s God’s will.”

I’d been at our little two hundred member congregation three years and served on the board a month. I really liked Pastor Giff, but he finally got fed up with us after serving at Menlo Park Spirit Filled Praise and Worship Fellowship for five years. I suppose all the sniping, griping, and pastor’s wife bashing can get to you after a while. He said he was heading to the mission field. Bosnia, I think. I guess we were pretty bad.
