    No Lone Islands

    Dear Christian…   In the years I have been a Pastor I continue to notice a trend in the lives of believers and followers of Christ. There tends to be a consistent error in letting others know when you’re being attacked with sickness, disease, distress and torments.   What bothers me is I know that the things you are struggling with aren’t even yours… They are works of darkness manifesting in you.   Paul made a Truth very clear in the Word of God… Let me show you.   Eph 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the…

    A Pastors Heart

    A Pastors Heart   When God gives a man a heart to shepherd His people, just know the responsibility is huge. Way beyond the scope of this writing. I take the call on my life with God very seriously. I know my judgment with God will be greater then yours. I know that if I teach wrong doctrine, or lead people astray I risk my life with God.   So when I tell you about the one thing that grieves me the most as a Pastor, will you not turn it into something it isn’t. God has shown me so much revelation through His Word, through personal words from Holy…

    Bind and Cast

    When the devil comes along and says something about your spouse… Your response should be, “Did you really just speak negatively about my spouse? I bind your lips and cast you down in Jesus Name!” Heh… That demon will never speak again and is sorry it met you. And you will feel the peace of God immediately. This is spiritual warfare at it’s most simplistic form. Divorces would be non-existent if people were taught this. Relations between others would never be breached. Dear Christian, listen to me… You are NEVER waring against the other person. Ever! This is warfare. Stop fighting people. Fight the enemy and put some stripes on…

    Stop Fretting About The World

    Take heart dear Christian We are living in the most amazing time right now. God has placed us in a time and season that is becoming exhilarating to watch and be part of. Just know all that is going on is a power play on Satan’s part. He has already infested the majority of the world with sin. His army is directing his troops at every front right now. But what makes this so incredible is God is going to win. More, Satan knows it. But it’s all he has. He has to show his troops that he is a god and he won’t stop. He can’t. He’s filled with…

    Don’t let the news bother you

    Now that you’ve read the news today… As we continue to watch what is happening in our country, it would be easy to speak out what we see in response. The problem is we can easily become part of the problem. This is a matter of spiritual warfare and we should not be found in want because we joined their ranks by our speech. In the Bible, there is a little verse hidden away which says; Job 22:28 says, “Declare a thing and it will be established” Now, you might reason in your mind “How could something I say change the outcome of what is already happening around the country?”…

    Diabetes – Where’s The Healing

    Over the last year or so, I have been asking the Lord to help me understand why Diabetes is so hard to kick out of people. As a Pastor who is called to heal the sick and to set the captives free, it is discouraging to pray for people only to see them leave my hands with what they came in with. Over the last few years, I have prayed fervently for many people at the altar in church and in the marketplace to see them be healed.   Kicking Diabetes out by name has done nothing. So, I began to ask the Lord… show me.  I knew there had to…

    The Power To Cast Satan Down

    If God were willing to give you the Power to cast Satan down every time he shows up in your life, would you use it? For example, when Satan comes to destroy your washing machine or your cars transmission, and you happen to notice that it is him who has caused the problem, would you turn gloomy any cry out for a new car? Or….. if God gave you the Power to cast Satan down, would you use it? What if Satan came along with witchcraft from your neighbors and did the bidding of their words against your marriage or loved ones? Would you turn frantic, gloomy, begin to fear…

    The Trigger Finger

    After one of our Friday night worship meetings, I gave one of our people a ride home. Along the way we were talking about this and that when she mentioned she had a trigger finger. She continued telling me about it saying, “God is showing me what it is that has caused this. I’m looking forward to Him healing me” I knew God wanted to heal her so smiling I said, “What did you just say?” “I am hoping God will show me what is causing my trigger finger…” Again I said, “What did you just say?” She giggled as if I was deaf and said, “I have this trigger finger…

    What Desire Rules Your Life

    What desires rule your life? When I was a young boy, I gave my life to Jesus and told Him I would serve Him all the days of my life. Almost immediately I felt a desire well up in my heart. It was the desire to lay hands on people and see them healed. Each one is tempted… For the next forty years, that desire burned in me. I didn’t know how to make it come alive, but I knew God would work out the details in His time. Meanwhile, I prayed and ministered to anyone who wanted prayer or healing. During those years, I ministered to multitudes but almost…

    Putting On Your Armor

    Paul of the Bible told us that we should be putting on the full armor of God every day. Let’s look at what he said: Ephesians 6:11 (NKJV) 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Every day I put on not only the basics but other robes and items which keep me covered and guarded against the powers of darkness. Recently, I have had a couple of people ask me what it is that I put on. I don’t believe in coincidences so the Lord must want me to share what I do. So here goes……

    Cut The Ties

    If you have someone in your life who is perpetually prideful, always hurt, always judgmental, always bitter or angry, seemingly frustrated and always offended with people… can I ask you a question? Why would you hang with someone like that? You are either walking in obedience to God Do you know the Bible teaches us to do just the opposite? If you are embracing someone who is sinning before God, you are sinning right along with them. And you will be found in error with God. These types of people drag others down to the bottom of the ocean without the victim ever realizing they can’t breath. Honestly, most people…

    Who is that speaking

    Yesterday, Pastor Mark called me and asked if I would go with him to help an older woman with a need. She was asking us to come and move a piece of furniture from one storage unit to another. Mark and I both knew we had a Kingdom appointment and we were interested to see what God was going to do. When we picked up the lady, she got into the car and began to speak… non-stop. I mean, she never used a period on any one sentence. I’m not even sure she took a breath. I put my finger over my mouth… As the three of us drove to…

    The reward was prayer and prime rib

    Debbie and I had fun last night in Spokane. We were invited to a Pastors appreciation dinner put on by the Gideon’s. When we arrived at the Red Lion Inn we noticed the place was packed with people. The conference had already been going for two days, but last night was set aside for pastors around the region. The look on his face said it all! Walking in, we were immediately greeted and led to the sign in area. Once that was taken care of, another man came over and offered to take us to our seats. We were made to feel so important by the Gideons, and the attention…

    Ungrateful People

    When I meditate on the goodness of God, I can’t help but remember the multitudes of stories found in the Bible for us to learn from. I am so glad God has given us His Word in the form of a book. There is a story I want to that can reveal to you the heart of God. You see, He loves it when we are grateful. Luke 17:12-16 (NKJV) 12 Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. 13 And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” 14 So when He saw…

    The Love of God

    Recently the Holy Spirit began to whisper a single sentence in my ear. He kept saying, “The Love of God”. I wondered why He was saying this so I decided to search the scriptures to find what He wanted me to understand. I’m glad He did. What I am about to share with you will hopefully make you jump up and down in gladness… In our culture we often use the love word often for things that have no real value. “I love my burger!” We love all the things that bring us happiness, but most of the time they are so short lived. Worse, we often look for the…

    Why Am I Here

    The question of the ages… It’s been answered over and over again, but the battle to keep the truth from you has been intense. If you are asking, you clearly don’t know how important you are… For over forty-five years, I’ve heard people ask, “Why am I here?” There is a deep longing to know what our life is all about. People often go about searching here and there looking for anything to answer the question but are left empty in the end. Some people spend money to feel good about their lives. Others use sexual relationships to find their answer, but in the end they still feel like empty…

    Do You Dress For Success

    A few years ago, my Associate Pastor and I walked into a Wal-Mart store and headed down one of the main aisles towards the back. We were on a mission from God. There was someone there who needed a touch from Him, so we were making ourselves available to whoever needed that touch. Mark and I work together to further the Kingdom of God here on Earth as we both minister in healing and deliverance. I am blessed that Pastor Mark also walks as a seer for God. If you don’t know what a seer is, they are people who God has allowed to ‘see’ into the spiritual realm. These…

    How Can God Forgive Me

    I often minister to people who refuse to believe God could ever forgive them. If that’s you, know that you have been lied to. God is so in love with who you are. While He doesn’t love your sin, He loves you without any reservation. In order to be forgiven by God, we have to be truly repentant. In other words, we can’t glibly say under our breath, “God forgive me” and hope for the best. It doesn’t work that way. There is no shortage of witnesses for God God is a Creator, a King, a Judge and surely Rules over all the Earth. He is majestic and beautiful… Glorious.…

    My Back Hurts

    After years of praying for people with different physical problems, I began to see a pattern in how their problem related to their sin. For example, when people have problems with their backs, shoulders, legs and other major body parts, each one tells a story of how they have broken a commandment of God. Even doctors know that stomach problems are the result of stress and worry. Stress is like picking up a heavy weight and carrying it around for a while. Add a little churning along with it and the stomach is going to cry out. What is amazing though is most people are blind to their own sin.…
