Passover begins at sunset on April 5—that’s next Wednesday. With this in mind, we are going to jump ahead in our Tabernacle story this week. As I prayed about it, Holy Spirit urged me to discuss the offerings and sacrifices given at the altar. Keep in mind that Moses did not receive the full instructions … Continue reading What Are You Thinking? – The Burnt Offering
The Tabernacle – The Use of Brass in the Fence
When God gave Moses instructions for the Tabernacle, He also gave him specific details about the curtained fence around its courtyard. Last time we talked about the messages woven into His choice of white linen. Now we will begin to cover the meaning of the support system for those curtains. This is the scripture we … Continue reading The Tabernacle – The Use of Brass in the Fence
The Narrow Way
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Matthew 7:13-14 We want to believe that it … Continue reading The Narrow Way
Thanksgiving–It Means More Than We Think
Today is the day before Thanksgiving here in America. Thought we'd look at the word Thanksgiving. Before today I always thought Thanksgiving was about thanking God for the things He's given us. I was surprised to discover that thanksgiving is something else all together. The word Thanksgiving looks like this: Strong's #8426 It is pronounced Toe … Continue reading Thanksgiving–It Means More Than We Think
Fasting, a Forgotten Key to Deliverance
When was the last sermon you heard about fasting? When was the last time you heard someone say they fasted from food? Fasting was a common practice in Jesus’ day. God commanded fast for one day out of the year, on Yom Kippur-The Day of Atonement (Leviticus 16:19-31). We have several accounts of fasting in … Continue reading Fasting, a Forgotten Key to Deliverance
What is Yom Kippur and Why Celebrate It?
Have you ever packed for a trip and when it comes time to leave, you can’t shut your suitcase? At that point, you need to open it, refold, and sort the priority items from the non essentials. Writing this piece on Yom Kippur has been a similar journey. There is not any way to include … Continue reading What is Yom Kippur and Why Celebrate It?
A Word for the American Church
Word for the American Church – August 29-2021 Question: Lord, how can we partner with You in these times of uncertainty? Look up, for your redemption draws nigh.

Oh, What Great Blessings are Seen in Those Who Mourn.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn? Surely, this isn't true. But the Amplified Bible sounds even more absurd. Blessed and enviably happy [with a happiness produced by the experience of God’s favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His matchless grace] are those who mourn, … Continue reading Oh, What Great Blessings are Seen in Those Who Mourn.
There’s Still Power in the Blood
Like many of you, I've been praying, asking God how He wanted me to respond to the stay-at-home order we are asked to follow. My question to Him, "Abba, is there something I can write that will help others lift their eyes to You?" A few mornings ago, I woke up with this phrase, "The … Continue reading There’s Still Power in the Blood
Monday Manna – Of Sin and Righteousness
(There is only One Gate into the Tabernacle - there is only One Way/Gate into the Kingdom.) As I slowly go through my old journals, I am finding so many struggles to BE who You've called me to be. Lord lead me in Your truth, Your will. “My heart is turned toward you Beloved. Why … Continue reading Monday Manna – Of Sin and Righteousness
