Stand UP while there is Still Time

This is a very different word than I think I have ever given. Some of you may think I’m being political. I don’t believe I am being political, just reflecting reality, so I respectfully ask that you bear with me through some appeals I’m about to make because my heart is breaking and I can no longer remain silent in the face of the human suffering that is resulting from the growing depth of wickedness I see enveloping my beloved nation and the world. So I’ll begin with the hard statement.

When gross incompetence disrupts the nation as it is doing at the southern border, we can perhaps adjust.

Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers and cast out demons, but do it all from simple, quiet intimacy with our Father, our Savior and Holy Spirit.

Urgent Strategic Adjustments to Prayer

I’ve been mostly quiet about the election in recent days as I've awaited the ultimate outcome of the related court cases. I’ve been really burned out on the turmoil, the conflict and disunity among Christians over it. It has seemed that everything I say about the election, no matter what it is, tends to stir a lot of folk to hurl uncleanness
