Step off, Satan.

It didn’t matter if it was in a Southern California city in broad daylight… It didn’t matter if she was a small, normal looking, white woman…the fact is, she had aligned herself with devilry. As such, she was an open vessel for demonic activity. (If you don’t…

The devil is moving in the park.

Whenever strides are being made, spiritually speaking, toward God . . . the evil one doesn’t like it.

(Note: This briefing is quite timely, as we just recently looked at…

No RETREAT, no SURRENDER.

Tall, very dark, guarded, angry . . . that is how I came to know him. Of all the street people I encountered in Long Beach, he is the one I thought, ‘dang, I wouldn’t want to meet him alone—especially at night!’ First, he tried to discredit me as a minister, my being a woman and all, but somehow I passed the test, and he came back to the…

Name it, claim it? Really!

Electrically-charged, controversial to some . . . the issue of answered prayer. What is our role? What is God’s role? Where does our faith come into play? Oh, and how much faith is required to experience positive answers to our prayers?

Aggravated, frustrated, and desperate for relief, Paul asked God to remove his…

She said I was wrong----something to think about

Sometimes the answer is NO. 2 Corinthians 12.7-10

God always answers our prayers, but like it or not, sometimes he says “no”. Usually, of course, we do not like “no”, but it is there just the same. Paul asked God to heal him of some weakness or constant source of pain in his body, (though Scripture doesn’t exactly say what). Some have speculated it was poor eyesight, while others have said he had a

chronic stomach problem; either…

A most unusual day. Where else? Long Beach.

It was a bright, warm morning as we pulled up to the Long Beach sanctuary, but I was already on my toes. You see, I had just taught on the strategy of the evil one whose desire it is to generally deceive and wreak havoc in people’s lives. The devil does not like to be revealed, so I figured there might be some static at my community Bible/prayer meeting. Sure enough.…

Power thinking. 2 Corinthians 10.5

Before you put your pants on . . . 2 Corinthians 10.3-6

A proper world view.

Being a parent is both a great blessing and a limitless responsibility. I remember hearing that being a mother is like cutting part of your heart out of your body and letting it walk around without you. Oh,

there is so much joy watching your babies grow, take their first…

Words matter. 2 Corinthians 10.1-2

Oh, how much we have learned about faithful godly living from Paul’s two letters to the church at Corinth! And now we move into the home stretch of his second letter. And yet again as we start out chapter 10, we see Paul defending his apostleship. From our 2000-year later perspective, it is still incredible to think of Paul defending his calling and his viability as a…

What can one lady do? (fourth and final in a series on Generosity)

What can one lady do? (Part 4 on generosity)

She walked into the huge old basement room, where the preacherman was addressing quite a large gathering of street people. As she looked around, most of the folks looked about like she had expected—worn and tired, in some cases, dirty and smelly—but she was

surprised…

Are you a Giver? 2 Corinthians 9.1-5

It seems the subject of Giving is often accompanied by suggested guidelines, recommended percentages, and veiled apologies for bringing

it up, (along with the assumption that the associated organization’s

Giving must be down). As a ministry leader and director of a 501-C3, I

know that even mentioning Giving makes me uncomfortable! I have a

little different perspective as I write today. In 2 Corinthians…

Sorrow and Joy. (drawn from 2 Corinthians 7.2-16)

An auburn-haired lad set out to make his way down the street to his grandmother’s house. He carried a little plastic boat in his hand, ready to set it afloat on the stream that flows along the back of her property.…
