It seems God is trying His best to wake up His church with the revelation that a battle is raging and we’re standing in the middle of a war that’s whirling around us. During this Jewish New Year that began Sept. 18th, I was reminded of what King Hezekiah must have felt as the AssyrianContinue reading “Do You Really Know What Battle Your In?”

What Did You Just Say?
This morning Jeanne and I heard a direct word from the Holy Spirit about watching the words that come from our mouths. It was so impactive we thought the Body of Christ needed to hear what God said. The first thing He said was, “If your words do not line up with My word’s, theyContinue reading “What Did You Just Say?”
