Its almost impossible to be filled with bitterness when you’re filled with Thanksgiving. When you’re filled with appreciation and gratitude it’s also very difficult to be depressed. Thanksgiving is also a great deterrent for unfaithfulness because when you are grateful for your wife and your family, hell can’t tempt you. Continue reading
2 Chronicles 7:14
If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
The sewer that is disguised as entertainment today; just because it makes you laugh, it doesn’t mean it’s not nasty, filthy and perverted and it’s called sin. If you are not careful, God will judge you for it. Continue reading →
Vision comes from God. It’s not something you attained for yourself. Paul was saved on the Damascus road. He got a vision because God intervened in his life. God is not waiting for you to get good before He can save you. We’re not talking about what You can do but what God can do.
Was recently at the optometrist who ran an exam. From looking into my eye, she said you have the beginning stages of a cataract that was the result of an accident. She didn’t know me but by examining my vision, she could see that I had an accident. About 35 years ago I had a racquet ball accident when I was pioneering in Phoenix where a ball slammed into my eye . An examination was able to alert me of a potential hindrance in my vision.
2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?-unless indeed you are disqualified.
There are reports of people selling their computers having thought they wiped out their data only to find that a hacker was able to reconstruct their hard drives memory wreaking havoc on victim’s identities. All of this because they were able to bring up memory from the past. The devil is a demonic hacker and a master at identity theft. If possible he will steal your identity in Christ reminding you of your past.
Heb 9:14 – How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
There is a need today for many to have their past erased. Only God can do that. If we come to Him sincerely and with a contrite heart, He will forgive us and He literally says He will remember our sins no more.
Our church is filled with people who have been given a new life, a new chance that’s what this all means. You can live a life in which a bad past is deleted from memory, never to be brought up again in God’s eyes.
I have seen that a father’s compromise becomes the son’s commitment. That the high point of the child’s spiritual pursuit is referenced by the lowest level the parents showed acceptable.
I was praying early last Wednesday, seems like 4am. This was only days before a leadership meeting with some Chandler Pastors. God spoke to my heart, “If you don’t talk to me, you’ll have nothing to say to men.”
You marry more than a person, you marry an influence. One of the greatest influences apart from God in your life will be the person you marry. Solomon had a father with a heart after God, two powerful personal encounters with God, built the temple that would literally house the presence of God, has books named after him in the word of God and yet at the end of the day the Bible says his wives turned his heart from God to Idols.

Forgiveness will cast the pain of the past into the sea of forgetfulness to be remembered no more.
