Spirit of Life

This last week, I had dreams from God over several nights. They all revolved around my attempt to do well and follow after the law. The drill was always the same; I failed. And with the failure came condemnation. I would try harder to get out of this dilemma, only to...

The Way In

“The Holy Spirit indicating this, that the way into the Holiest of All was not yet made manifest while the first tabernacle was still standing.” (Hebrews 9:8, NKJV) The way in is not manifested while the old way is standing. We have been in a year of forced rest. With...

This Jesus

In four verses Peter proclaims on Pentecost who “this Jesus” is, what God has done for Him, what the Father has given Him, and what God has made Him be. This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are witnesses. (Acts 2:32, NKJV) God raised this Jesus from the dead. He...

TODAY

I was meditating on “Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” Psalm 95:7,8, Hebrews 3:7, 8, 15; 4:7 Seeing the importance of a soft heart in hearing the voice of the Lord, I was recognizing how easily my heart shifts from...

A Fast to Seek the Lord

“And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. So, Judah gathered together to ask help from the Lord; and from all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Lord” (2 Chronicles 20:3-4, NKJV). As a house of prayer...

2021 The Year of Praise

2020 has become the year of faith in God; faith in His Word, and faith in His promises. In returning and rest, salvation has issued forth with quietness, and confident strength has been given (Isaiah 30:15). Now we embark with our faith in praise to our God in the...

Goodwill Toward Men!

During a frigid winter, twenty-six-year-old Joseph Mohr, the assistant priest at St. Nicholas Church in Oberndorf, Austria, was faced with a dilemma. On Christmas Eve, the midnight mass was facing worship without an organ, and the choir without their accompaniment....
