Could You be a Christian Prodigal

If there was ever a cry from our Heavenly Father’s heart, it is “Where are My children?” He is aware that there are many who have adopted Him as Father, but the adoption was not legal because it was never sealed with the acceptance of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, as their Savior. God knows His own, of course, because they look like Christ in the Spirit. However, to those who have been sealed with the sacrificed blood of Jesus, God continues to ask, “Where are My children?” It is not a question of geographical location, but one regarding our spiritual whereabouts. Today, more than ever, there is an urgent cry from the Father’s heart to Christians every where, “Where are my children?”. Could you be the Christian Prodigal God is looking for?

Word From the Lord

Around three am this morning, I heard these words from the Lord, in my spirit.

“Behold America is changing. Her borders are closing. This is My doing, for I am a just God. Everyone wants a better life, yet many come, and never develop an appreciation for this country.  You have tried to trust in human instinct, and friends, and friends of friends, but look at the devastation that has brought throughout your country. Your currency still says, ‘In God We Trust’. Look at it often and PRAY. This statement is to be an everlasting Stone of Remembrance of how I, yes I, led you here and established a nation of freedom and put My name on it. (See Joshua 4) Many of you have gotten fat off this land,  and that has caused you to become proud and walk independent of My ways. But why are you rebellious My sons and daughters? Why do you not seek Your Creator for His righteous council and perfect wisdom?”

Our Gifts, Our Weapons of Power

Ephesians 6:11-18 warns us in this way, “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

I believe God has transitioned the body of Christ into a new season of development. We are full of knowledge and teaching, yet we still speak negatively and walk in fear of our future. This is because our knowledge of God’s goodness is not mixed with faith. Do you know that negative talking for a Christian is a form of evil speaking? It does not line up with the Spirit of Christ within us, which is the word of God, and it opens the door to the evil one, Satan (Proverbs 18:21; Ephesians 4:30,31). In this season, the Church is called to rise up, undistracted by the chaos of the world, and begin to connect with the mind and heart of God. The strivings and anxious concerns of yesterday are over. God is not sitting nervously on some distant throne. He is still large and in charge and He is shifting the mindset of His Church! Continue reading

Spiritual Lessons from the Caterpillar

caterpillarI added two small buddleia bushes in my garden this summer. They are called butterfly bushes because butterflies are attracted to them. I was so excited with the anticipation of beautiful butterflies flying around the yard. (photo via

One day, I walked outside and discovered little fuzzy creatures crawling in my drive and along the side of the garden. They were caterpillars. I thought, “What a nuisance!” Those roly-poly, fuzzy creatures were crawling all around the garden near the butterfly bush. Then it finally dawned on me, caterpillars become butterflies! I was witnessing the beginning stage of the butterfly. That’s when the Lord began to teach me some spiritual lessons through the caterpillars. Continue reading

Storm Warning! Are You Prepared



Storm warning! Those are the words you typically see trailing across the bottom of your television screen accompanied by an ear-piercing sound when severe weather is imminent. It means everyone in the direction of the storm should take safety actions immediately. The rains come in hard, as the winds whip through the air like giant unseen tails. Storms can be expected when weather patterns produce violent disturbances in the atmosphere with strong winds, usually with rain, thunder, lightning, or snow (per online definition). Those who are in the path of nature’s storms can easily find themselves in the dark with no electricity. They bump over chairs searching for candles or flashlights. Too late, they discover that there are no matches for the candles they can’t find and the battery in their trusty flashlight is dead. Say, “Unprepared!”

Some storms pass over us, and others hit us with a vengeance, head-on. However, there are other storms that come our way that are life-storms. These affect our spiritual atmosphere by creating strong winds of adversity around us; thunderous conditions in our homes, and every element of disaster and destruction in our personal lives. There are storms that come against our character and integrity, and storms that blow hard against our finances, our health, and our loved ones. Its intent is to rattle the walls of our faith or bring it down all together. We all want our life-storms to pass over quickly, or fizzle out before it reaches us or our families. But sometimes, we are caught smack in the middle without any warning signs.  (Photo via Pixabay) Continue reading

Heaven is Connecting with Earth

sun-raysHeaven has come down to us!

Friday, August 19th, while driving around 6:00 in the evening, my eyes were drawn to the sky ahead of me. I noticed the sky was alive and bright with billowy clouds. The sun was fading in intensity as the day was preparing for evening. I was fixated on the beauty of God’s sky. (By the way, no other traffic was near me, so all was well.)

Suddenly, my eyes caught a wide beam of light piercing through the sky. The light beam’s origin was above the clouds.There was a large hole or opening in the sky that the light was radiating from. Its beam could be distinguished from the natural brightness of the sky. The light beam traveled all the way down to the ground. I knew I was seeing an open portal from heaven to earth.

Daughters Arising, Again

Daughters Arising, AgainDaughters Arising, Again.2Daughters Arising, Again.3

On the heels of celebrating mothers and those who play the role of mother in so many ways in our lives, it seems fitting that the Holy Spirit would once again turn to, and extend a call to action to the daughters of God. “Go!” and “Tell!” (Photos via Pixabay)

As I sat quietly a few days ago, I was presented with a fresh scene of the daughters of God at the grave site of Jesus. These were the women who went to the tomb to anoint Jesus’ body after His crucifixion. When they arrived, they found that the stone to the entrance of the tomb had been moved and the tomb was left open and exposed. As they looked inside, they discovered the body of their beloved Master missing. Jesus was gone! “Who took His body?” they asked each other. Their hearts, already broken, were now broken beyond what they thought they could bear.

The earth shook and a brilliant light shone about. Through their tears, the women saw an angel waiting nearby. With words of encouragement, the angel gave these daughters of God an assignment that changed their lives forever: Continue reading

The Cost of a Bowl of Stew

bowl of stewYou are a good cook and you make great stew. Your stew is so good, other people can’t wait to eat it. Yet you find yourself desiring someone else’s second rate stew. (Photo via Pixabay)

Chapters 25 and 27 of Genesis tell the story of two brothers, Esau and Jacob, who were rivals from the womb. As the oldest, though only by seconds, Esau would automatically inherit the rights and blessings of the first-born. However, his destiny would forever be changed because of a bowl of stew.  Continue reading
