The Heart!

•February 2, 2017 • 2 Comments

I heard someone say this a few weeks back.

“The Heart of the Problem is a Problem in the Heart!”

I love it – it’s so totally correct – it’s so totally God.

If we get fixed on the inside -you know, peace, courage, confidence, forgiven, forgiving, patience, fearless . . . we can take on the challenges and vision of real life!

Isn’t it odd that when challenges bigger than us can cause us to turn inward – but if there is not the substance and fortitude to be found “in there” we tend to collapse more into the vacuum.

What’s the plan?

spirit-soul-body-mind-emotions-will

Philippians 4:7 (NKJV)

and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 

 

Change is possible people!

God’s plan is to get His Son locked and loaded in us – He is Amazing.  He will deliver us – set us free!  Our essence, our Spirit, is forever changed – shifted into a brand new way, and our minds follow!

Then we wont need the life-leveling, mind numbing drugs the health industry loves to liberally throw around our culture!  Right!

We can have hope, we can have happiness, we can be fearless and courageous.

Awesome!

 

Get The . . . Out Of The Way!

•January 19, 2017 • 1 Comment

I am currently preaching on “Gifts and Gifts” – foremostly to help people identify the difference between the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the Spiritually infused “gift” or talent God has placed in everyone of us!

Once we identify the gift / talent something remarkable happens – a shower of frustrating distractions, taps-on-the-shoulder, interruptions, accusations . . . anything that can stop us form getting our hands on the wheel of our gift for any significant and productive time.

As fluffy and light as the distractions look, they are quite sinister in intent!

The most frustrated people in life are those not able to get in the “wheel-house” they know is waiting for them – or watching time slip by as their “gift” is unproductive or dying on the vine.

If we get our hands on the wheel of our gift, of course, and led by God day to day, we will be unstoppable.  Plus . . . remarkably, we affect the people around us dramatically!

This shift changes your world and grows ever larger from there!

 

1 Timothy 4:14-16 (NKJV)

14 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. 15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all. 16 Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.

Give yourself entirely to them / it!

Clear the way, guard your time, destroy time-wasters – take heed means that!

2017?  Clear the way, kill the distractions – traction is coming your way!

God is amazing!

Unto Us A Child Is Born – What Child is This?

•December 15, 2016 • 2 Comments

I keep hearing an incredible song play in my heart and head.  Robyn and I listened to it while we were decorating our Christmas tree – and it just stuck.  “What Child Is This” – we listened to Andrea Bocelli sing it – just amazing!  It was written by a William Chatterton Dix, in 1865 in England.  He was an insurance salesman!  He was struck by a severe illness and during his recovery he underwent a remarkable Spiritual renewal – during which time he penned a number of songs of deep worship!

Incredible song, asking the biggest question of all time!

What Child Is This?

Those that know Him already fall to their knees and worship Him.  Those that are still journeying to that “place” – well here comes Christmas, such a beautiful time and everyone, both people of The Faith and not, ALL know, it’s time to selflessly give.

How come we all know that?  Hallmark didn’t start this season right?  God did.

God wanted to have us all grab a new image of Him – things had gone awry on planet earth – religion had taken the Godhead and branded it/Him something far from the total reality.

God’s brand of the time seemed harsh and punishing – the religious leaders loved that – it set them in complete control.

God wanted a “direct connect” – total broadband from heaven, to each and every person that would accept His gift, His Son.  Then meet frequently in His Presence to worship Him!

God created a “way” of clearing all our “stuff” off the radar of our lives – you know, the bad stuff, that kept us away from Him and kept us from loving ourselves and our lives.   That “way” has a name – His name is Jesus!

No more from me – I have said enough.  Look these two scriptures.

The first is from the Old Testament – it’s a prophecy from grumpy Isaiah!

12-15-what-child-is-this-blog

Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

 

Wow, that’s who Isaiah saw coming?  Just think about it – each description is a “job description!”

The second is from the New Testament – penned by Matthew who walked with Jesus.

Matthew 1:23 (NKJV)

“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”

 

Yes, that’s “What Child this Is!”

God with us!  Just stop a moment and talk with God, maybe say “please show me your Son – bring it ALL home to me please God.”

When Jesus arrives in your life so does liberty – liberty that can arrive no other way!

God is amazing!

Church – all back to front!

•December 3, 2016 • 1 Comment

I can’t help thinking this, as we fly headlong into the Christmas season, how incredible and so opposite church is to this world we live in.

Life in the world screams don’t surrender, don’t appear weak, compete hard, never show your true heart – it’s all weakness!

Yet, as believers we belong to a Kingdom reborn by a savior (who was capable of calling down legions of angels on His behalf) who surrendered His life so we could have ours in their entirety!

BUT, weird as it seems, to get our lives we first have to give our lives up and keep this surrender to Him going.  Like really actioning it daily or more.  Why?

It’s a principle of God, it all just works this way . . . look at this scripture!

 

12-03-church-back-to-front-blog

Mark 8:35 (NIV)

For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.

 

So He can author our lives.  Why?

Because my life authored by God is going to be a thousand times better than my life authored by me!

 

So . . .

Church: The place where surrender is the most powerful position.

. . . sounds all back to front right?  It’s not!

 

God is amazing!

And These Signs Will Follow . . .

•November 26, 2016 • 1 Comment

Can I just write a quick blog today?  I hope so!
I love this scripture – and it is my personal goal to see it happen. Not as a Pastor either.

What?        11-26-and-these-signs-blog

Read this . . .
Mark 16:17-18 (NKJV)

17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

It doesnt say “and these signs will follow . . . a pastor”
nor does it say “and these signs will follow . . . a priest”
nor does it say “and these signs will follow . . . a vicar”
nor does it say “and these signs will follow . . . a theological school graduate”
nor does it say “and these signs will follow . . . a deacon”
nor does it say “and these signs will follow . . . a pentecostal”
nor does it say “and these signs will follow . . . a baptist”
nor does it say “and these signs will follow . . . a mature christian with little to no sin”
nor does it say “and these signs will follow . . . a republican”
it simply says “and these signs will follow those who believe.”
Yes, any believer in Jesus Christ will create in their wake, signs and wonders.
But first . . . you must believe that signs and wonders are able to happen NOW!

To me the easiest should be to lay hands on the sick – the sick are all around us – how can it hurt for us to ask “can I pray for you” and as in ancient days gone by, we lay hands on the sick and  . . . see them recover!

He is amazing and makes us amazing!

Anti Fear!

•October 20, 2016 • 4 Comments

Let me just say this right up front – I hate fear, with all my heart and soul.  I will wage war against fear in people’s lives until the day I leave this planet.  

If fear drives your decisions, they’ll never be good ones. No matter what we call it, you know all the terms, anxiety, nervousness, insecurity, it’s all the same, it’s fear. 

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

2Ti 1:7 NKJV

See!  Scripture reveals fear to be a spirit. It’s not an emotion it’s something living and it’s dark and it wraps itself around our hearts, torments our minds, twists a knot in our belly and leaves us in a foggy, shaky, lead footed, state of confusion.  It yells shamingly “make a decision, quick quick, your life is in danger, flee flee, fall down in the fetal position and whimper you whoose!” all at the same time.

I’ve been told time and time again (by far greater men than I), never make big decisions in a trough (the opposite to a life peak). They’re never good decisions. They’re always filled with over compensations and fear based knee jerk reactions.  The decision we need to make in a trough is this . . . I will turn to God, I will trust God, I declare God is my hope and my fortress.  Holy Spirit speak to me from your perfection and love!

You see i’ve got another announcement to make. Scripture states “perfect love casts out all fear”- so there should not ever be a scared or frightened or confused Christian . . . That’s right!  No condemnation intended here. Keep reading.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

1Jo 4:18 NKJV

The perfect love of God has enveloped our lives in the form of the perfect sacrifice, the perfect act of the perfect Love. His name is Jesus. That’s the amazing scenario that happens when we make Jesus Lord.

The last sentence in the above scripture reveals our battle over fear is a journey.  The closer we get to God, the more we surrender to HIS love and HIS leading, the less we’ll fear. We are being perfected as we grow, some instantly, some in line with the growth of walk and freedom in time. But I tell you, this world needs us, the fearless people of the most high God!

He is amazing and makes us amazing!

Hungry?

•October 14, 2016 • 1 Comment

In recent conversations about our immediate culture, with people from varied backgrounds, incomes and ethnicities, some key descriptive words keep coming up – one of them is “complacency” and I am not just saying complacency toward the church, faith and Jesus, it’s a cert that complacency is everywhere about almost everything by a huge chunk of people!

Definition of complacent?  Don’t really care much about anything or anyone.  Which leads to a feeling of “I’m just watching all this happen in front of me – I’m not really part of it!”  Like, you’re in the movie, but just to observe, not really taking part.

I think the “fired-up” and “motivated” really outstrip everyone else!  And so they should!

We could spend an age looking for the reasons for the complacency (and maybe we should at some stage) that breeds mediocrity, and sometimes I think people are mistaking that mellow complacency for “peace” but it’s not at all peace, not even close.  It’s depressing!

Let’s recognize our own positions on the scale of hot thru cold and ma10-hungryke some decisions.

Of course my focus is on people’s faith walk – is it hot or is it cold?  Am I complacent, or am I fired-up?  The Apostle Paul tells us to have sober judgment of ourselves – wise words, not often heeded in today’s “look-at-me – i this – i that” culture – but let’s give it a shot.

You see it took “faith” to get your/my soul saved right?  But why do we think we don’t need to use that faith muscle anymore – you know, after we used it to crash the Christian Born-again party.  WE DO!

Scripture tells us  . . .

Hebrews 11:6(a) (NIV)

And without faith it is impossible to please God,  . . .

And the scripture goes on to say that God rewards those that “earnestly seek Him!”

I don’t’ know anyone that would disagree that earnestly could be replaced with passionately, or determinedly, or fully focused, or wholeheartedly or . . . fired-up about “Him.”

Pleasing God is not to be undertaken on the basis of trying to keep a dictator pleased (like Kim Jong-un) so He won’t smite you – that’s not God!  True!  That is NOT God!  That’s the devil dressed up in a Jesus suit!

Pleasing God comes by using our faith muscle, you know, believing God for what He has for us, what He wants for us, for His anointing on our gifts and life, His power to navigate through life’s valley’s and immense Joy in the peak moments, and what Hebrews 11:6 mentions, the prosperity of health and wealth – the whole gamut of His Promises to His kids.

How do we get there?  Or back to “there?” We decide!  What?  Yeah decide!  DECIDE!  Make a decision.  Everything else follows a decision.  Decisions produce action, which give-way to traction, then momentum in any direction you have decided!

Today I decide to get Hungry – Hungry for God, Hungry for a life navigated by His leading and Holy Spirit – because it’s not going to be alien to me, it’s is going to be AWESOME in every way.

Yeah, this is my decision – today, I surrender and I am now HUNGRY!

 

God is amazing!

It’s Supernatural People!

•September 29, 2016 • 1 Comment

Today there is a continued growth and thirst and attendance for movies that are giant in the supernatural and superpowers – box office hits!

It says to me that the World is definitely on a quest, searching for the out-of-the-ordinary, the supernatural – that which is phenomenal!

The church has left it behind – ignored the Holy Spirit or on a quest to be relevant, brought in various dog and pony shows to hold people’s attention or to try and satisfy a thirst for the exciting.

I heard it again the other day – I don’t want the service that has “that” going on!  A preacher was moving in the gift of the Holy Spirit, known as “word of knowledge.”  Why wouldn’t you want the Holy Spirit to move in the service you’re attending???  It was fear talking.

Are we going to respond and follow the instructions of fear or are we going to respond to God, His Spirit, His Son and believe His Word?

 

1 Corinthians 12:8-11  (NIV)

8  To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of its-supernatural-people-blogknowledge by means of the same Spirit,  9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,  10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,  and to still another the interpretation of tongues.  11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.

 

Look it’s just simple – this is the Word of God speaking.  It plainly tells us . . .

  • God is supernatural
  • Jesus, supernatural, born and raised and raised from the dead
  • The Holy Spirit is thoroughly supernatural

What the “beep” are we thinking!!!

Let’s see and experience the gifts of the Holy Spirit – God is more than enough!

Let’s not go to church to hear about God, let’s go to church to MEET Him!

 

God is amazing!

Greater Than Jesus?

•September 22, 2016 • 1 Comment

What? . . . Blasphemy I hear yelled from the crowd!

Read this!

 

John 14:12 (NIV)

12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

So, what does it mean?

Think about it!

These are Jesus words!

What are we doing about them?

Ask Him what He meant!

Let’s do it!

You Don’t Know What You’re Into!

•September 15, 2016 • 1 Comment

I was just musing of a conversation I really want to have with a couple I met a few years back.  They’re great people and have done Christianity via their family traditions for decades.

The conversation I want to have with them sounds something like this.

“Hey guys, I want to encourage you to stop doing these Bible studies where the guy that created the study takes you where he wants you to go in the Bible, and just read it yourself!”

“When you read it yourself, it will blow your minds!  You will begin to see what you’re actually into, there will be a significant shift in your life, you will be changed!  Not by what man says “about” God, but by what God says to you about Himself – directly!”

09-you-dont-know“Who shows you this?”  God Himself, standing at your shoulder, saying ”hey read that bit again”  or “what do you think about that?””

“You have forgotten that you worship a supernatural being, ultimately powerful, ultimately loving, ultimately for you in such ways you’ll fall to your knees with thankfulness!”

Really!

It’s time people, time to really discover what we’re into, when we become a Christian.

It’s sensational, it’s stunning, it’s beautiful, it’s empowering and very very rich.  Because God, they, are all these things!

God the Father, God the Son Jesus and The Holy Spirit!  AMEN!

God is amazing!
