Creating A Good Future

What a beautiful day for the adventure to begin. What’s in today? What’s around the corner? See beyond the dismal and ordinary to that which Father is wanting us to discover!

Realize Your Dream

What does it take to see our dream fulfilled? How do we know we are going in the right direction? I started off going for it full steam, but now the steam has fizzled. How do we get back up and get energized? A lot of these questions can be answered when we begin to understand the process in the dream being fulfilled. REALIZE YOUR DREAM!

ImPossible to Possible

I awakened early in the morning two days ago to a revelation from the Lord. It’s not anything earth shattering, but more like a play on words. Today I designed the quote for T-shirts and other products to help us raise funds for our GameChangers Production of FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS! We will start touring with the production in June 2016. Tomorrow we will film the first scene for the trailer and are so excited. This is really coming together quickly and the response to it is beyond my expectations. We already have possible bookings for the production in three other states. Read the rest of this entry »

Pieces Of The Puzzle

I awakened at 4:00 o’clock this morning from a horrible dream. I saw someone get on a motorcycle in frustration and ride at a very high speed across a valley and then up a mountain or hill. As they got to the top I heard agonizing screams as they went straight over the cliff. Then I saw the motorcycle and the person fall down the cliff to their death. Life over! Gone in just a heartbeat! A choice was made, evidently out of frustration and it was carried out quickly. Then I awakened later and saw a vision. PIECES OF THE PUZZLE! Read the rest of this entry »

Captain Jack’s Compass

I like to watch movies, especially those with hidden meanings. Some of them remind me of the old jesters in the king’s courts. The jesters had to be careful how they portrayed things in front of the king so as not to lose their head, and yet portray a truth to the audience and king. The movie, Pirates Of The Caribbean does the same thing. One of the parts I like is the way Captain Jack’s compass works or doesn’t work according to some.

Two Souls In Heaven

Last evening I was surfing on the internet some and I received an email from a Senator about the abortion law. I checked it out and thought it was great what they are in the process of doing. A little while later, I started seeing a story form in my mind, so I started typing it out. It was about two souls in heaven waiting to come down to earth and be born. Then I shared it with my facebook friends and this morning I am sharing it with you. Two Souls In Heaven… Read the rest of this entry »

Love Overcomes The Law

There are some interesting things going on in our country to say the least, but one of the most paramount for Christians is the legal battles by atheists to remove the 10 commandments. My personal belief is that as far as the law is concerned, this is the basis of fairness and justice at the foundational level and should cover all. However, in the life of a Christian, there is a higher standard and a different way of life. It’s a way of life that Jesus shared in two sentences. It’s when Love Overcomes The Law… Read the rest of this entry »

DESTINY song by Joseph James

Do we ever stop and think about where we are going in our life? Where is that place, that goal, that finish line? Is it going to be all that we hope it is, or do we even know for sure? Are we just ambling along in life with no sense of direction? I wrote this song to address some things in my life and to share what I’ve found. DESTINY… Read the rest of this entry »

Life In The Fast Lane

The Eagles wrote a song called “Life In The Fast Lane” in the 70’s. I believe the next line went like this. “Slowly makes you lose your mind.” There are a lot of songs out there with the correct observations and they also ask the right questions. It’s what helps us to identify with others and helps us not feel so alone. The only problem with a lot of these songs is that they don’t give us any answers. I remember the songs and I used to like listening to them and also dancing to them. I just got caught up in the emotions around me as did everyone else and just hoped for a better day. This is simply how it is for a lot of people. You do what you can to make it through another day and you hope that the weekend will have some fun and good times to make up for all we put up with during the week. Life In The Fast Lane.

Life In The Spirit

Life in the Spirit or life in the flesh, we all have a choice to make everyday. It is similar to the glass half empty or half full illustration I used in a previous post. Life in the Spirit is a great place to walk every day, but how does one get there. Does it happen overnight? How can I attain it? Life in the Spirit! Read the rest of this entry »

Wars Of The Flesh

Do you ever struggle with the desires of the flesh? You know you want to walk the right way, but the fleshly desires of your humanness are loud and screaming inside to be satisfied. What do you do? How do you overcome? What do you do when you are in the heat of the moment and give in? What do you do afterwards? This struggle, this war within and without never ceases to end. How do we get the victory? How do we overcome? Wars of the Flesh! Read the rest of this entry »

No Honor Among Thieves

We all know who thieves are, right? What about when it comes to the Lord’s kingdom? Who are the thieves? Who was Judas really? Who are the hired guns? No Honor Among Thieves! Read the rest of this entry »

Courage To Succeed

In each country there are problems. The scenery is different, but people are still people. Each of our problems are unique and strangely similar to others. In desiring to live a good life we all struggle with opposing forces around us. Some live in the midst of war and battle while others live safe and secure. Each have their own problems to face. What will we do? How will we overcome? COURAGE TO SUCCEED… Read the rest of this entry »

I Am God

The devil says, “I am going to be like God.” God simply smiles and replies, “I Am God!” End of story! It is the epic story that has caused man to struggle with his identity for ages and generations. What is it about this story before the beginning of time that has caused a cosmic war since? I AM GOD… Read the rest of this entry »

Christians Are Weird?

Ok, I just had to write about this topic. Someone said it yesterday and I thought, ‘Yes, they’re right, in a sense.’ About three o’clock this morning I was awake in bed for the next few hours thinking about that and saw a story that might shed some light on the subject. Are Christians really weird? Or are there things in nature that might be able to tell the story better than an explanation? CHRISTIANS ARE WEIRD… Read the rest of this entry »

Another Day In Court

The woman approached the ancient courtroom after having stood in line for a very long time. The line was still behind her as far as the eye could see. As she waited for her case to be heard, she was able to listen in on the one before her. The court was called to order and the man ahead of her was asked to stand before the Judge. The Judge called the meeting to order and then had the charges read. ANOTHER DAY IN COURT… Read the rest of this entry »

Wisdom vs Knowledge

In the book of Genesis, there were two trees in the garden. One was the tree of life and the other, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It’s message is simple and yet profound. One brings life and the other death. WISDOM VS KNOWLEDGE… Read the rest of this entry »

Relationship or Religion?

How do you separate this? Easy! Check out the first four books of the New Testament in the Bible and you can see this easily. Relationship with Jesus or religion with the Pharisees. Who accomplished the Father’s will? RELATIONSHIP OR RELIGION? Read the rest of this entry »

Heaven’s Stage

My wife and I walked into Great Grace International Christian Center this morning, both of us were very tired. Not only had it been a long week, but an intense year of climbing what seemed to be an insurmountable mountain in the spirit realm. Sasha and the worship team began the first song and I was immediately caught up into a vision that seemed to last for quite a while. It was a behind-the-scenes look at Heaven’s Stage and it was huge. There was this vast room before me with the Ancient of Days on His throne in the middle… HEAVEN’S STAGE! Read the rest of this entry »

Oh, Lord, How Majestic

Oh Lord, how majestic are your ways… We recently journeyed to one of our favorite places, Colorado. I love the mountains because they represent to me, His Majesty. They are bigger than any problems I have. There is a beauty that is just incredible. All of man’s accomplishments seem really small compared to seeing one single mountain. Following is a recent experience I had. OH, LORD, HOW MAJESTIC… Read the rest of this entry »

Resurrection Power

So many Christians are living in defeat and fear. The religious church system has beaten them down. Why? It is the enemy’s purpose and passion to keep God’s people powerless. Why? He has to do this in order to further his demonic kingdom and purposes. We are living in a constant war in the heavenlies and in the natural. The spirit realm and the natural realm work hand in hand or in a lot of cases don’t at all. We, as Christians were given all we need to overcome, but are we? Resurrection Power!

Life Or Theory

Have you ever heard someone speaking their theories to an audience and you just knew they didn’t know what they were saying? You might have thought, “Where did they get that? What planet are they from?” That’s the way it is with some preachers of the Bible. They stand up in a pulpit, after going to some theological school or something, and preach from head knowledge, yet they have never met the author of the book, nor experienced any of it. They are puffed up in their pride and arrogance. They are the blind leading the blind. True Christianity comes from living the scriptures through His life and not through our own strength and mind. LIFE OR THEORY! Read the rest of this entry »

Bible – History Or Life

The Bible is a book of history for some people; to others it is a story book; to still others it is a book of law, tradition and religious duties; and yet to some it is life. How can anyone truly interpret it correctly without communing with the One who wrote it in the first place? The last is the easiest one, all you have to do is ask and He will gladly walk with you and show you things you’ve never seen. 1 John 2:27. What a journey! Always an adventure and full of life!
