By Ed Watts I believe the Lord is calling us to consider 2 Kings 5:13. In 2 Kings 5:13 Naaman’s servants went to him and said, “My father, if the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more, then, when he tells you, ‘Wash and be cleansed’!” Naaman almost missed his moment of transformation because of PRIDE & the Wisdom of Man. The Bridegroom, Jesus, is calling His Bride to the WATERS to wash and be cleansed! I truly believe the LORD is calling His Church to fill the baptismal … Continue reading It’s Time to Re-form The Body of Christ Back to His Image!
by Rod McTaggart Some are saying this is the year of The Word. I have said that this is a year in which we will see signs, wonders and miracles because of God’s word. We are going to need them because of the events that are rapidly taking place. But there is one thing that we must come to recognize, and that is our purpose and destiny hinges on obedience. Every preacher in the New Testament, including Jesus, emphasized conduct, behavioral change, and obedience. Many hyper-grace preachers calls those who believe this legalistic, and accuses them of being “sin conscious”. … Continue reading Are You Preparing for His Return?
By Patricia W. Qualls There are as many opinions about how Christian women should dress as there are women in the Body of Christ. If our hearts are submitted to the Father, then we will be open to the voice of the Holy Spirit when He puts His finger on areas of concern in our lives. One of those areas is how we as women (and men) represent our faith in the manner in which we dress. Why is that important? you may ask. God does care about how He is represented in the earth. Paul speaks clearly in 1 … Continue reading FASHION, MODESTY AND GOD
by LaMonique Raquel When my son “Junior” was born he was as handsome and as cute as can be. His father and I wanted nothing but the best for him. As junior began to grow into a toddler, we noticed he had some speech and slight physical delays. As time went on and more and more was expected from him (tying shoes, using words etc.) it became apparent we needed some intervention. We took Junior to the Early On program for testing. At this time junior was around 4 years old and had the speech pattern of a much younger … Continue reading Can Speaking God’s Word Over A Child, Change an ADHD Diagnosis?
When your teenager starts to get out of hand you have to ask yourself some hard questions. The first step is to honestly evaluate how you think you’re doing when communicating with your teen. Do you feel you are sharing valuable information and time? Or do you feel there is a communication gap and he’s hiding something? Look for these warning signs: Low self-esteem Out of touch with reality Sudden personality changes and mood swings Violent behavior Drop in grades and school performance Self destructive actions or language (suicide threats or extreme diet & exercise) Reclusive tendencies Debilitating fears Any … Continue reading Getting Help for Troubled Teens: When and Where to Go
by: Pastor Isiah L. Qualls Some of you “old school” music aficionados remember that song from yesteryear! Well, actually it just might be good to come forward and confess that as men we actually do see and notice the women that cross our paths. I know, our mind tells us to pretend to the wife, or fiancée, that we don’t see when we actually do! I have been given the task to address this type of issue as it relates to women and their choice of revealing attire during the warm months of the year. How are we men to … Continue reading I’m A Girl Watcher……….(saved men dealing with the scantily clad ladies of summer)
by Jeri Darby It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. Antoine de Saint Exupéry Walking in the mall I passed a woman with such a polished look! Stylish hair, tailored clothing, tasteful make-up and carefully manicured hands and toenails- she was impeccable! It was evident that her appearance was not at the bottom of her priorities and she invested quality time. I admired her! It provoked me—for a season to get on the ball. I get by with my outward preparation. It’s acceptable. I get a fair share … Continue reading The Impeccable Woman
