God Speaks Jesus: The Sound of His Voice

The most fascinating thing to me about our faith in Jesus is that God speaks. Right now, His very voice is being heard by all creation and is resounding throughout the whole earth. Creation, alive and in constant movement, is responding to His voice, following after...

Whose Sin is It?

“Who sinned?” has become one of the accusatory mainstays of media. Whether in politics, business, or key social issues, everyone wants to know, “Whose fault is it?”  Not that sin isn’t a big deal and usually causes a whole lot of pain, but does getting to the bottom...

Walking with Jesus

What if we could walk with Jesus through the last six months of his ministry on earth? What if we could see what He saw, experience what He experienced, and know the very movement of God in His redemption plan? We can! Jesus’ life is recorded in the Gospels; with the...

Spears Down, Hands Up!

Hearts are awakening by the love and mercy of God! This is a beautiful thing. It’s like the new growth of spring we already see on our hillsides in Camarillo. As fresh, tender, bright- green shoots appear, it’s a promise of renewal and new life after drought, fires,...

God’s Warrior Suit, JESUS!

When our kids were little, we bought all of them “Armor-of –God” costumes:  plastic Roman- looking things with crosses on them. Everyone looked like little soldiers for Jesus. We had lots of fun, and they were great object lessons, but I’m not sure we ever really grew...

Who is Your Beloved?

The Shulamite was beside herself. Her Beloved had arrived unexpectedly, and she had delayed her response to His request for entrance. Now he was gone! She had looked everywhere for Him, but to no avail. No one would help her lovesick heart, either. The watchmen had...

As the Sound of Many Waters

I have never been to Niagara Falls, but those who have been, tell me it’s breathtaking. With 681,750 gallons of water per second cascading over the main Horseshoe Falls; collecting itself tumultuously at its base; and creating the sound of many waters, I would imagine...

The Glories of Heaven Seen

I had a vision this week while speaking with one of our staff members. As she was talking about the prophetic, I saw a curtain being drawn back. This curtain was covering a large window, and as it was drawn open, the sunshine of heaven flooded the room. Beforehand,...

He Found the Place Where It Was Written

Luke 4:17: “And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written. . .” When Jesus was given the book of Isaiah to read from, He found the place where it was written, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon...

A Good Inheritance

Psalm 16:5-6: “O Lord, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You maintain my lot. The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Yes, I have a good inheritance.” Last Sunday, we were each given a nation of God’s choosing. Just as Joshua, the elders, and...
