Pray for revival

There is being experienced within the Church a strong desire for revival. This is fantastic and God honoring I believe. I hear of prayers for peace, for the Spirit’s guidance and filling. All good things. I am moved to say also, we should pray in repentance within our churches. We ask for revival, for newContinue reading “Pray for revival”

Prosperity “gospel”

“Hey did you hear Joel Osteen, he has such an uplifting message?!” No I did not, no. Yeah, yeah, God wants me to be “happy, wealthy, healthy, and prosperous.” He and other ministers of the flesh proclaim such. “Wait, Evan, aren’t you being rather critical, rather unkind?” No, and here’s why. Our God is anContinue reading “Prosperity “gospel””

Evidence please and thank you kindly

In today’s day-and-age false teaching and apostate beliefs are rampant in society…discernment is a must! I have found in my walk with the Lord a number of really excellent resources that have aided in personal study and growth whichContinue reading “Tools for our journey”

Did God really say…

As believers, our adversary the devil has had a long time to master his craft. Just as in the garden when he made Eve question God’s word, “did God really say you can’t eat from any tree in the garden?” (Genesis 3:1) He misrepresented God’s word, focused upon a want and a “nagging rule,” andContinue reading “Did God really say…”
