Who You Are in Christ

Who You Are in Christ

Who You Are in Christ & Why He Lives in Us -by Dan Mohler, Christ Community Church, Oct. 4th 2015 An amazing, easy to hear, but hard hitting message! I never heard of this man before yesterday when a friend recommended I listen to this message. This topic was on my heart so when I heard it, it really resonated with me. Warning, if you listen to the first 10 minutes, you won’t want to stop before the end!

Is Good Really So Obvious?

Is Good Really So Obvious?

Video John Bevere The early church leaders repeatedly warned us about about deception. Jesus Himself warned that deception would be so cleverly concealed in our time that even the elect could fall prey to it. Can we treat those warnings lightly? Can we brush them off, assuming we are above deception and can instinctively discern good from evil? The good news is that God is not trying to hide His best from us. He’s not in the business of pulling…

Hyper Doctrines

Hyper Doctrines

What are hyper doctrines? You could say it is when one doctrine is taken to an extreme and is at the expense of  other truths that are in God’s word. It is so easy to become unbalanced in what we believe, and history has shown that many believers have been deceived by believing things that are partially true, but not the whole truth. I have felt for a while already that the pressure from our society is to bow to…

Exposing the Accuser of the Brethren

Exposing the Accuser of the Brethren

A few months ago a friend of mine mentioned an author that sounded vaguely familiar, but I wasn’t sure. The name was Francis Frangipane. I have read a few of his articles since then and appreciated his depth and his focus  on Christ. Then just last week I decided to buy two of his books and the one that I am reading now is called, “Exposing the Accuser of the Brethren.” It is more like a booklet with just four…

Time to Seek the Lord

Time to Seek the Lord

I have recently started reading a book by Francis Frangipane titled, Holiness, Truth & the Presence of God and this morning I read about the need for us to not rely on the familiar, but instead to rely on God. There are times that God calls us to seek him (more than our daily devotions). Here is an excerpt from his book that challenged me. God has given everyone enough time to seek Him. It is there. Having done what…

How Do You Know that You Are Saved?

How Do You Know that You Are Saved?

This message preached by Paul Washer at a youth conference has to be one of the most provoking, straight forward messages on how to know you are saved that I have ever heard. I really love how he describes it. I can’t help but think of the thought that comparing ourselves among ourselves is not wise. Here are some excerpts, but you really need to read or watch the message in order to get his context. “I want you to…

Good or God?

Good or God?

This morning I listened to a short video about the revelation that John Bevere had regarding what is good. I believe it is a timely word for our culture. Too often it is easy to assume that if something is good then obviously it must be of God. But that is the ultimate deception! Just ask Eve.  She opted to go with what was “good,” and “pleasant,” and desirable. How wrong could something be that also appeared so right? In…

End-Time Ethics

End-Time Ethics

End-Time Ethics This morning I read this passage and it really stood out to me. Here are some words that Peter shared in light of the end being near. I believe most Christians agree that we are living in the last days. Reading this in the HCSB version can help bring out the thoughts more clearly so that is what I used below. 1 Peter 4:7 Now the end of all things is near;  therefore, be serious and disciplined  for prayer….

11 Simple Values I Appreciate from My Anabaptist Heritage

11 Simple Values I Appreciate from My Anabaptist Heritage

Here is a good article by Asher Witmer. I believe that if we come from a Christian home there are likely things we take for granted. Asher  took time to evaluate the things he was thankful for and it caused me to also pause and reflect on the many blessings that I experienced. — Heritage is powerful. God saved Lot because of his family heritage through Abraham. If it wasn’t for Abraham’s intercession, Lot would have destroyed along with Sodom….
