Messages of revival, fervent prayer and impact in the cities of the earth

    Who Says The Superbowl Halftime Show Was Immoral?

    Who Says The Superbowl Halftime Show Was Immoral?

    Those who haven't had a life-rocking encounter with Jesus are at a disadvantage and it's unfair for those who have been transformed to expect them to see things the way we do. In fact, to attempt to coerce them to adhere to our set of standards, in violation of their own free-will and their right to also have a say in morality is ineffective, and in most situations, unfair if not outright arrogant.

    Who are we to say that pornography is wrong? What makes our version of truth regarding homosexuality more valid then theirs? To Christians, babies were created by God, given human spirits at the time of conception and they clearly, obviously deserve protection. Except, those who don't believe in God the way we do simply disagree that they are fully human at points of development prior to birth. They have a right to that belief, as horrifying as we think it is.

    Listen to today's podcast and gain some insight on why compassion for the lost is critical.

    Pastors are “Done with Church as Usual” as they Continue Doing Church as Usual.

    Pastors are “Done with Church as Usual” as they Continue Doing Church as Usual.

    Today's remnant generation has determined that God isn't moving powerfully in today's church. Pastors, what are you going to do about it?

    Kobe Bryant and Eternity

    Kobe Bryant and Eternity

    A basketball legend is suddenly gone. I'm so grieved, actually sickened in my spirit as our world keeps on partying and even those who should know better, Believers, are more focused on enjoying life than preparing for eternity. Ending up in Heaven is so very rare and it takes much more than believing in God to get there.

    Can Revival Come Through Guest Ministers? Yes, If The System Is Fixed.

    Can Revival Come Through Guest Ministers? Yes, If The System Is Fixed.

    Traveling ministers and the pastors who invite them most both welcome correction.
    The money changers’ sin was simple—they attempted to use God’s temple for personal gain. They were focused on making a profit. This resulted in one of Jesus’ most violent reactions, and I believe a similar reaction is coming to a corrupt ministry scheme today. ~Snake Oil Ministry

    Of my nearly three decades of ministry, I've spent many years as a pastor inviting in guest ministers and I've spent many years as the guest minister, traveling to serve a pastor when called. Wholesale reform in this exchange must come if we the impact we are hoping is to be realized.

    Today's Church Model Is Seriously Goofed Up

    Today's Church Model Is Seriously Goofed Up

    The current construct of the church is so far off base that it will take nothing less than full-blown reformation to resolve. When it functions correctly, most Christians won't want to attend, but you will have your remnant and the world will finally be rocked with the power of Jesus!

    Is Much of Today's Evangelism Doing More Damage Than Good?

    Is Much of Today's Evangelism Doing More Damage Than Good?

    In today's podcast I share four reasons why much of today's evangelism is actually hurting the advance of the Kingdom.

    The Great Commission is such a serious mandate that we have no option but to get it right. In fact, with Hell growing larger and innumerable people are flooding into that unspeakable place every day, we must sound the alarm, preach the truth and rescue the perishing.

    However, it must be done rightly. I share four reasons why much of today's evangelism is out of step with the Word.
