Heart Armor

“Above all else guard your heart it is the wellspring … out of it flow all the issues of life.”   This may be one of the most important instructions given in the scriptures. It is found in the book of Proverbs, written by Solomon whose wisdom was renowned. Do we know how to guard



Pre Conversion Discipleship

What comes first? Not, the chicken or the egg, but rather, Conversion or Discipleship? Were Jesus disciples converted before following Him? or did they begin to follow Christ before being converted? And why does it even matter? As we have sought to be faithful to Jesus’ cultural mandate to ‘make disciples of all nations’, these



Divine Hydraulics – The Armington Crane

Deuteronomy 11:10-12 For the land which you go to possess is not like the land of Egypt from which you have come, where you sowed your seed and watered it by foot, as a vegetable garden; but the land which you cross over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water



Lord teach us to pray, like John …

“Lord teach us to pray, just like John taught his disciples” Luke 11:1 Jesus’ disciples made this request in Luke Chapter 11, it probably goes without saying that Luke Chapter 11 comes after Luke Chapter 10? So what’s the big “Aha!”? We’ll in Luke 10 Jesus had sent out the 70 with authority to trample



Zero Corruption

When the people of Jericho looked at Zacchaeus they saw the problem. When Jesus looked at Zacchaeus he saw the answer. When Jesus shows up in Zacchaeus’ home town of Jericho, as usual, a crowd gathered. Zacchaeus was the chief tax collector, we are told he was a small man in stature. Along with many



5 Keys To Being Eternally Wealthy

I came across a very helpful definition of wealth in the book “On the Destiny of Nations: Resolving Our Economic Crisis” by Dennis Peacocke. There is much in this book that is extremely valuable and I highly recommend it. I will give you the five components of wealth Peacocke describes and then I will briefly



God gave them over!

“The wisdom that comes from above is … willing to yield … “. James 3:17 I believe four of the most sobering words in scripture are, “God gave them over”. It’s found in the Old Testament(Psalm 81:12) and the New(Rom 1:24, 26). God’s preference is for us to trust him & take him at his



Plumbline

On December 7th 2015 Pipeline Church, the church I pastor, had the privilege of hosting the 7th Day of Doug Stringer’s 21 Day Prayer & Fasting Appeal to Heaven. I was eager to participate and was not fully aware of how significant this date would be for our fellowship.   This was a busy time



Staves

Then Israel sang this song: “Spring up, O well, sing to it! The princes dig the well, the nobles of the people dig it, by the direction of the lawgiver, with their staves. Numbers 21:17-18   Staves is a curious Hebrew word that occurs in the Old Testament (OT). The specific Hebrew word translated staves in



Restore! – Twelve Concluding Propositions

Isaiah 42:21-22 The Lord is well pleased for His righteousness’ sake; He will exalt the law and make it honorable. 22 But this is a people robbed and plundered; All of them are snared in holes, And they are hidden in prison houses; They are for prey, and no one delivers; For plunder, and no one says, “Restore!”     The following



Chapter 5 – The “Secret” of the Visitation of God!

(Taken from the book “When God Stepped Down from Heaven” by Rev. Owen Murphy)   The HEBRIDES revival was a MANIFESTATION OF GOD! Something greater than organization, something more wonderful than a new approach in dynamic evangelism – this was GOD AT WORK! GOD IN ACTION, independent of special PERSONALITIES! And behind the mighty “turning
