Idolatry, Demons, and Ecumenism

“Every false religion in the world is not just wrong. It is demonic. It is energized and powered by the kingdom of darkness that is ruled by Satan himself,” says Mike Riccardi. He goes on to say “There is absolutely no fellowship or spiritual partnership between the people of God and the people of this world.” So, if we’re in relationship with those who teach … Continue reading Idolatry, Demons, and Ecumenism

Israel and the Nations: A Theological Opinion, Part 1

Often, well-meaning, Israel-loving people will say to me, “I am Jewish now. I am grafted in.” I never, ever say anything close to, “No, you’re not Jewish.” I focus more on how grateful I am that they love God and pray for the Jewish people. However, it is interesting that the Church went from saying, “You can’t be Jewish and believe in Jesus,” to, “All … Continue reading Israel and the Nations: A Theological Opinion, Part 1

THE SONG OF VICTORY by David Wilkerson [May 19, 1931 – April 27, 2011] The children of Israel were in a hopeless predicament!

God’s people seemed helplessly trapped—like sitting ducks just waiting to be cut down. Yet, believe it … Continue reading THE SONG OF VICTORY – David Wilkerson Today – A Ministry of World Challenge – WEDNESDAY, MAY 15, 2013

Becoming – Our Daily Bread – May 14, 2013

I grew up in a small town. No famous people. No busy streets. Not much to do. Yet I’ve always been thankful for my quiet, uncomplicated upbringing. One evening when my husband and I were attending a business dinner, a new acquaintance asked me where I was from. When I told her, she said, “Aren’t you embarrassed to admit it?” Unsure whether or not she … Continue reading Becoming – Our Daily Bread – May 14, 2013

BEARING FRUIT – David Wilkerson Today – A Ministry of World Challenge

BEARING FRUIT by David Wilkerson [May 19, 1931 – April 27, 2011] There is a portion of Scripture that convicts me deeply. Jesus said, “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

EVIL IS ALMOST AT YOUR DOORSTEP By Greg Evensen

The stories are told of the gunfight in Tombstone, the cattle thieves near Abilene, and train robbers in Missouri, who just kept killing and robbing because they had the backing of other bad guys to get the job done.

WALK IN THE SPIRIT – by Gary Wilkerson – David Wilkerson Today

WALK IN THE SPIRIT by Gary Wilkerson Most of us would admit we rarely feel God’s grace at work in us. That’s why we are prone to doubt that His presence abides in us. Paul addresses this dilemma for us in Galatians when he writes, “I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16, ESV). It … Continue reading WALK IN THE SPIRIT – by Gary Wilkerson – David Wilkerson Today
