Renounce the Religious GRINCH!

The holiday season! And the Grinch inevitably shows his face. There are the PC police on the liberal side and the religious police on the religious side. Each one wants to tell us that we shouldn’t celebrate these holidays lest we either offend someone or engage in unholy activity.

So, according to the PC police, we can’t celebrate Thanksgiving because it harkens to the European invasion of the American continent and the genocide of Native Americans (and I am both of European ancestry and am a member of the Osage Nation). According to the religious police, we can’t celebrate Christmas as the birth of Jesus because before we coopted it, the Roman pagans celebrated that day as dedicated to the worship of a false god. Easter is gone, too, as a time to remember the resurrection of Jesus because both the word “Easter” and the date are drawn from the worship of Ishtar, goddess of light and truth. According to some, we’re all sinners if we worship on Sunday instead of Saturday and because we Gentile Christians don’t keep the feasts of Israel. On and on it goes. Someone needs to read Romans 14:5-6, “One person regards one day above another, another regards every day alike. Each person must be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes for the Lord…”

Post Election… Christians change your tone?

“But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals on his head”

When I saw the headline on the evening of November 6, “Fox News projects Democrats capture House of Representatives,” a great heaviness settled over me. First, there were all those prophecies of a red wave that I knew would never come to pass, although I believe that in the end the behavior of the left will come home to roost for them. I hope that those who prophesied wrongly of a “red tsunami” will now have the grace and humility to publicly admit error and apologize.

With the loss of the House of Representatives, there will now be trouble, turmoil and paralysis in Washington and for the nation. For two years I have been calling for prayer for President Trump, saying that if he would not learn that you cannot win by insulting enemies and calling them names there would be losses. I have lamented the fact that for two years many fellow Christians have argued with me to justify his tone, as if denigrating and dishonoring others were a good and needed thing. Why didn’t we understand the Scriptures and the heart of our Lord? Proverbs 12:18 “There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword, But the tongue of the wise brings healing.” OR, 16:7, “When a man’s ways are pleasing to the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” I lay the responsibility for Republican losses in the House of Representatives squarely on the shoulders of both President Donald Trump and many of us who identify as evangelical Christians. You cannot win friends and influence enemies or win them to your point of view by insulting people and calling them names. read more

Beware Leviathan, the Twisting Serpent

Leviathan has been working overtime in and through our culture and society, twisting words and perceptions to keep us divided and to fuel hatred…

This word carries a prophetic mandate. I must speak. For a number of years I have prophesied what I believe Scripture affirms, that a last days outpouring of the Holy Spirit is coming that will be greater even than Pentecost. Such a thing, however, does not come to pass without opposition from the enemy of our soul.

Consequently, a twisting, lying spirit has been at work over our nation as a whole. Figuratively speaking, we call it “leviathan”, the twisting serpent. I’m fairly certain that not everyone will agree that what I’m about to say is demonically inspired and energized, but every sense in my spirit tells me it’s true. A lifetime of experience in supernatural things has taught me the feel of demonic sickness. Leviathan has been working overtime in and through our culture and society, twisting words and perceptions to keep us divided and to fuel hate. If we think this will not also affect families, ministries and churches, or if we think we are immune to its influence, then we are being naive, even prideful, and we render ourselves vulnerable. None of us are that pure, Spirit-filled or strong. Jesus said, “Apart from Me, you can do nothing.” “Nothing” always means “nothing”.  read more

A Kingdom Culture of Love and Honor

… or Love, Honor, and Watermelon Football!

This issue is in video form. The original title was Love, Honor and Watermelon Football, but I knew that wouldn’t make enough sense. This was recorded at Church in the Vine in Edmonton, Alberta. It is a message that seems to have had a powerful impact in the places I’ve given it. New Song folks who might be reading this, please know that this is more than you got at home! Please take time to view it and take the word to heart! Click HERE or click the image.

Isaiah’s Prophecy Fulfilled

This an excerpt from a chapter of my upcoming book “A VISION OF HOPE FOR THE END TIMES: Why I Want to Be Left Behind” to be released in December through Destiny Image Publishers.

Isaiah’s Prophecy

Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes round about and see; they all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from afar, and your daughters will be carried in the arms. read more
