I am writing what may seem to be a peculiar letter to you and I assure you, that I write it with hesitancy. Please read the entire letter, even if you do not agree with what it says. I am writing what I feel is a very timely message from the Lord in regards to why we are not seeing more financial fruit and prosperity in our ministries....Read Further.
I John 5:4,5 "For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith. Who is it that is victorious over (that conquers) the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God (who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on that fact)?" What a powerful statement! Wha...Read Further.
Success … is that our goal in life and ministry? Success defined by the world is "wealth, fame or eminence". Success defined by God is obedience. Searching your own heart for which of these measuring sticks you use to judge yourself as "successful"? If we are doing what God told us to do, both in the writt...Read Further.
Greatest Message You have Ever Heard
Dear Children, I ask that we love one another. Let us not love with words or tongue, but with actions and in truth. And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard, His command is that you walk in love. Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully. If you speak in the ...Read Further.
Biggest Hindrances to Answered Prayers
This is a grievous problem in the lives of Christians around the world. In this issue God is challenging us to explore some deep rooted issues here, not with theology but down to earth exposures of the real reason why we don't see more victorious and triumphant answers to our prayers. The biggest hindrance to our receiving God's answers ...Read Further.
Who are you remembering, considering and imitating today? Are your eyes on people who live (or lived life) victoriously or do you tend to watch the people around you who are barely getting by, depressed, discouraged, defeated? As we look at the exploits of men and women of God who have dared to trust God in the most trying of situ...Read Further.
From around this world I receive many letters from my dear brothers and sisters who are co-laborers together with us, in the same Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ, as we seek to save the lost and in faithfulness to our Lord's command to "preach the Word". These letters reflect the spiritual condition of God's Church on...Read Further.
"I want you to know how much I have agonized for you and for the Church … and for many other friends who have never known me personally. My goal is that they will be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love. I want them to have full confidence because they have complet...Read Further.
In our last letter we learned that money is not to be our master but rather it is a tool for our use. In this continuing study on money, our focus will shift from the cash to what the scripture calls 'true riches'. "For wisdom is a defense even as money is a defense, but the excellency of knowledge is that wisd...Read Further.
Judging from the amount of prayer requests I receive on the subject of finances; it seems good to me to address this age old subject of money. This is a serious topic spiritually because God's Word states that "the love of money is the root of all evil". This is the reason why there are such wide array of doctrines, op...Read Further.
We hear many sermons about God's wonderful gifts of peace and joy but find ourselves lacking for sound doctrine concerning God's righteousness. I am convinced the understanding of righteousness is vital for The Church of The Living God to walk in victory in these days of peril. And the lack of knowledge about righteousness...Read Further.
God has entrusted to me to dispense to you, for your benefit, these words of love today. The good news of the gospel! That with this reminder you will have renewed courage and strength to follow your course with peace and joy; and as you delight yourself in the Fathers love, His love that has been abundantly supplied to you, will ...Read Further.
There is an American expression that says "one is the loneliest number". Seemingly this would be true, but as the Holy Spirit began to teach me this is what He said. "Alone" is the only definition of loneliness. A person may be alone even in the middle of a crowd of people. Yet even if there were just one individual, it does not ...Read Further.
Let Your Heart Be Glad
What a wonderful time to be alive and living for God! Our world is being shaken as biblical prophecies are being fulfilled all around us. Never before has mankind lived in such a time as this.

Life by the Spirit and the Gospel pt. 3
Last week we looked closely at our position as leaders and the freedom that comes as we follow the Holy Spirit. This week we will look at examples from scripture in preaching by the Holy Spirit and by the gospel. We are told to go into the entire world and preach the gospel. We are told to do the work of an evangelist and preach the Wor...Read Further.
Life By the Spirit and the Gospel pt. 2
Last week we learned about the importance of releasing the people that God has assigned to us over to the power of His Spirit. Expecting God to fulfill His promise in sending His Spirit to each believer, to lead and guide into all truth. Rather than our attempts to lead people by the convictions we have personally received from God, we allow the...Read Further.
Life by the Spirit and the Gospel pt. 1
The greatest controversy in our church history and one that continues to run havoc in our world today is that of church doctrine. More friends have been divided, families separated and churches split because of arguments over the tribulation, eternal salvation, tithing, baptism and speaking in other tongues. Issues of doctrine are the primary ba...Read Further.
Those who worship God in spirit and in truth have the inward witness to the scripture admonition that we are living in perilous times. Fear abounds in the lives of those around us, whether they are driving down a highway with us or sitting next to us in church. Fear generates from things that are not known or things that cannot be...Read Further.
The Great Exchange
In 1988, the Spirit of the Lord came to me saying, "I have called you to minister to My ministers. You will write by the unction of My Spirit and say only those things, which I give you to say; you will write without revision for the Words I give to you are perfect. They will be water to quench the...Read Further.

Launch Out Into the Deep
Are you discouraged in your efforts to live by faith? "For the just shall live by faith." "For without faith, it is impossible to please God." When you come to God, it must be with faith. You must believe that He is God and that He is a rewarder to those that diligently seek Him. From Luke chapter 5, we rea...Read Further.
