Program Information
Thine is the Power - This Week's Program
068 Aug 19
God is the source of all power - He is power! And Jesus has given His disciples the authority to use that power. So it is extremely important for us to remember that Jesus said that "From everyone who has been given much, much is required." We must be trustworthy stewards.
Thine is the Kingdom
067 Aug 12
As aliens and sojourners, we pass through the nations and kingdoms of this world as citizens and ambassadors of the Kingdom of God. We speak a different language and we have a different culture—at least we are supposed to as the Word tells us!
Deliver Us From Evil
066 Aug 5
Our adversary the devil, who goes about as a roaring lion, baits and sets traps to get us off a path that is straight and narrow and on to one that is broad and leads to death. The Lord, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, delivers us from the snare of that trapper—He is our Deliverer!
Forgive Us as We Forgive
065 Jul 29
The love of God has given us the perfect example of forgiveness — Christ and Him crucified. That same love, now within us, gives us the power to forgive, and thus block the schemes of the devil who desires to divide us—from each other, from Jesus and from God our Father.
Give Us This Day
064 Jul 8
Like manna in the wilderness, the Bread of Life was sent from above to provide for our need. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us that we might taste and see that the Lord is good - each day, every day.
Hallowed Be Thy Name
063 Jul 1
Calling upon the name of the Lord God Almighty to seek the fulfillment of His will, His purpose, and His direction in our lives will bring us to the most incredibly dynamic, power-filled prayer life we have ever known.
Our Father
062 Jun 24
This model of prayer for the disciples of the Lord is for those who can call upon Almighty God as 'Father' - but not everybody can! Most people are the sons of Adam and not the sons of God. Here is how to tell the difference.
Effective Praying
061 Jun 17
There are times when our prayers do not seem to penetrate the ceiling of the room we are in let alone reach up to heaven. This study looks at the reason why and how to 'cure' that. Jesus has the answer - Jesus is the answer!
Prayers of the Righteous
060 Jun 10
The apostle James said that the effective prayer of a righteous man accomplishes much. Our heavenly Father has made us righteous through the atoning work of Jesus. And Jesus has taught us what 'effective' prayer is.
Practicing Our Righteousness
059 Jun 3
Like faith that is required to bear the fruit of works, righteousness also needs to bring forth fruit; giving, praying, fasting and more. That has to be the practice of our lives and it must all be for His glory!
Training in Righteousness
058 May 27
Having been reedemed from the curse of the Law, which required us to give so much, we have now been moved by Jesus to the freedom of the Spirit which empowers us to give all!
Good God or Man It's Bad
057 May 20
Like habits, there are good traditions and bad traditions. The difference is where they originate. If the author is the Lord, they are good - if they are the invention of man, they are bad. There is a way to tell which is which and this study examines how to do just that.
The Tradition of Men
056 May 13
Jesus told the Pharisees and scribes that they worshipped God in vain as they taught their traditions, their doctrines, as if they were the commandments of God. Could that still be going on - and in the Church - just to make people comfortable?
You Have Heard It Said
055 May 6
Jesus was training His disciples to live according to the Word of God rather than the tradition of men as He delivered the Sermon on the Mount. Now, 2,000 years later we still need to hear and heed His word just as they did.
Blessed by the Law
054 Apr 15
Moving from under the Law to riding the blessings of the Law. It is God's plan for our abundant life. It was paid for on the cross where the curse of the Law was broken.
The Law and the Prophets
053 Apr 8
One of the first major heresies of the early church tried to divide the Scriptures in two - and to divide the God of the Scriptures in two. The Law is still part of the church, but not the curse of the Law.
This Little Light of Mine
052 Apr 1
God's light for God's glory. The Spirit working in us and through us that the world might see Jesus clearly in the darkness of this present world. It is the great adventure!
Teaching from the Moon
051 Mar 25
King David 'considered' the moon and the stars and the Lord gave him such amazing revelation and understanding. It seemed like it might be a good idea for us to try it too. The Lord might show us something. We did, and He did!
Evangelism 101
050 Mar 18
The Lord has a plan for evangelism that often seems quite different from what we normally consider when we plan evangelism. God's plan is a lot more exciting, to say the least!
The Salt of the Earth
049 Mar 11
The saints of God add flavor to this tasteless world and preserve what is good in it. And the redeemed of the Lord should certainly cause the unsaved to thirst for the living waters that only the Lord can provide.
A Faithful Witness
048 Mar 4
The greatest opportunity that we have to show the truth of the gospel, the love, the mercy and the grace of God, is to pray FOR our enemies in the midst of persecution. It was that same love that poured forth from Jesus on the cross; 'Father, forgive them.'
Blessed to be Persecuted
047 Feb 26
The righteous are blessed when they are persecuted because it provides the opportunity to do what only the righteous can do - return good for evil and love for hatred. 'The tongue of the righteous is as choice silver,' and like silver bells, we give off a beautiful sound when struck!
The Sons of God
046 Feb 19
We, the children of God, are ambassadors of Christ bringing a message of a peace offering to the world. Jesus, of course was the offering, and the only path to peace. The way, the truth and the life -- that is the Prince of Peace.
Blessed are the Peacemakers
045 Feb 12
You cannot give what you do not have; so you have to be a peace-taker before you can be a peacemaker! We have to receive the peace that only Jesus can give in order to bring the peace that only Jesus can give into the lives of others.
A Consuming Obsession
044 Feb 5
Loving the Lord with ALL of our hearts, as we are commanded to do, will result in a consuming obsession with Him. It will cause us to have a total focus on God our Father, His son Jesus Christ, and the things of the Spirit. It will also bring down a holy fire to purify our hearts.
Blessed are the Pure in Heart
043 Jan 29
It is not so much about what you add to your life, nor is it just about what you do, as much as it is about what you take out of your life and what you stop doing. It is really about extracting the precious from the worthless.
Blessed are the Merciful
042 Jan 22
The word of the cross, which is the power of God, is the story of mercy. Jesus is literally the place where mercy pours forth to all who will receive it as the judgment of God was satisfied there at Calvary.
Choosing Satisfaction
041 Jan 15
People around the world are dissatisfied. Unhappy with their homes, their jobs, their governments, the car they have-or don't have, and so much more. It is a virtual plague! And yet, there is such a very simple solution; Choose satisfaction.
Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness
040 Jan 8
This study, continuing on in the Sermon on the Mount, takes a close look at the driving, overwhelming desire that should outweigh all others. It is about a desire for a right relationship with our Father through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Inherit The Land
039 Jan 1
It is about the land of promise, the land flowing with milk and honey. It is about the inheritance of the meek who are humbled in the presence of our awesome God.
Blessed Are The Meek
038 Dec 25
King David said that 'weeping may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning.' The apostle John said that the Lamb will lead His own to 'springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes.' There surely is comfort for those who mourn!
Mourning Into Comfort
037 Dec 18
King David said that 'weeping may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning.' The apostle John said that the Lamb will lead His own to 'springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes.' There surely is comfort for those who mourn!
Those Who Mourn
036 Dec 11
Mourning the walking dead and bringing the Word of eternal life. Turning tears into joy and crying into rejoicing is the ministry of reconciliation.
The Poor In Spirit
035 Dec 4
It is the perfect start to the teaching of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount. This first Beatitude proclaims the Father's love and the lordship of Jesus Christ as it sets the stage for the entire message.
A Lesson In God's Language
034 Nov 27
Finding common language as we start studying the Beatitudes in this most wonderful, radical, life-changing teaching of Jesus Christ - the Sermon on the Mount.
The Upward Call
033 Nov 20
Going up the mountain to hear the single most radical, life changing teaching ever, the Sermon on the Mount. It is the very definition of what Christianity is supposed to be.
Return To Relevance
032 Nov 13
The single most relevant teaching in man's history has now been widely rejected by mankind as being irrelevant! The world and life today are beset with problems on every side. The Sermon on the Mount has the answers, tried and proven, for all who will receive it.
Words of Understanding
031 Nov 6
There is revelation, which then requires understanding. And then, that understanding needs to be coupled with knowledge and wisdom from above if indeed we are to be the 'salt of the earth' and the 'light of the world' as Jesus has called us to be.
The Path of Discipleship
030 Oct 30
What greater calling can there be than to be a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ? It is training, teaching and empowering us to speak like, think like, and act like the One who is the way, the truth and the life.
Be Pre-Prayered
029 Oct 23
That is not a mistake or a misspelling, the only possible way to be prepared for whatever may come into your life is through prayer; And that prayer has to be conversation with the Lord not just talking to Him telling Him what you want. Faith comes by hearing.
It Is A Time To Be Ready
028 Oct 16
There is a season for everything, and a time for every event under heaven. This is surely a time to be ready! Paul wrote to Timothy, speaking of the perilous last days, instructing him to be ready in season and out of season. And even if these were not those days, we are far closer to them than when that letter was written!.
Hope: Born of Holiness and Humility
027 Oct 9
The world offers hope that is generally no more than wishful thinking and is all too often just an illusion. That imitation of true hope leads most people into being disillusioned and heart-sick. The Lord brings a hope that the Word says, "does not disappoint." This is about God's plan to make that real and holy hope blossom in your life.
Humility: Empowering Holiness
026 Oct 2
In our last program we spoke about true holiness. There is a force in our lives that the Holy Spirit uses to fuel the holiness in our lives, it is called humility. We conquer through surrender - as we joyfully sing, "I surrender all" and follow Jesus to the victory.
Holiness and Fire
025 Sep 25
The Lord calls us to do good, but He calls us to be holy. And He has a plan to make us holy - this is it! It is about fire. This is cool stuff from a God who is a consuming fire.
Simple Truths for Complex Times
024 Sep 18
Without doubt, we live in complex times and people are seeking answers. Fortunately, the Lord has provided the answers for His people - and the truth is far more simple than you might have imagined!
A New Way of Thinking
023 Sep 11
The disciples had been trained by the religious leaders of their time; they had also been influenced by the Roman-Greek world around them, and then Jesus taught them that they needed to change their thinking. How about us?
A Spiritual Lesson In Gardening
022 Sep 4
It is the oldest profession and we all need training in it. This lesson is about learning from the Word how all life is designed to go from seed, to root to fruit. It has the message we all need, and that the flesh likes the least.
The Most Dangerous Attiude
021 Aug 28
Not Russia, not China, not Iran, not North Korea, not radical Islam and not ISIS, here is the real threat: Misunderstanding 'Full time ministry' and believing in part-time Christianity.
Red Sea Faith : Red Sea Fear
020 Aug 21
What the Lord did at the Red Sea was marvelous, it was wonderful. What His people did, not so much! What they did wrong back then is what we need to be on guard against in the church today.
Magic and Mammon: Babylonian Power
019 Aug 14
The world does not, it cannot, have the power of God. That is the heritage of the saints, the children of God who are the temple of the Holy Spirit. So 'religion' that is devoid of righteousness has made a counterfeit of true power - magic and mammon.
Rituals and Relics: The Quest for Power
018 Aug 7
From Babylon to Rome: Man's desire for power has led to seeking strange things in strange places and has promoted the counterfeit - Magic! Meanwhile, God, the source of all power, is just looking to give it to whoever will receive.
Babylon to Rome: Misdirected Worship
017 July 31
From Nebuchadnezzar's idol in Babylon to the false gods of Persia and Greece to the idols of Rome, man's worship has gone astray. It is the root cause of so many problems in today's world - as well as in today's Church.
The Priesthood: Either Royal or Wrong
016 July 24
The theology of Babylon that has crept into the Christianity of today. A look at how so much of what the church believes and does has been conformed to this world rather than being directed by the Word of God.
The Tower of Babel: A Long Climb To A Bad End
015 July 17
The theology of Babylon that has crept into the Christianity of today. A look at how so much of what the church believes and does has been conformed to this world rather than being directed by the Word of God.
Mystery Babylon: Kingdoms of Confusion
014 July 10
The religion of Babylon, the aggression of Persia, the philosophy of Greece, and the culture of Rome combined to create a dangerous theology for today. This is the first part of a study of how so much of Christianity has come to be conformed to this world rather than transformed into the mind of Christ. A confusion that spread from the head to the toes!
From Genesis To Revelation
013 July 3
A study of the whole bible, start to finish, and the history of man, from beginning to end - in 30 minutes! It is all preparation to look at 'Mystery Babylon' so we can see Jesus more clearly as we cut through the deep darkness.
Evangelism: Releasing the Treasure
012 June 26
This is about evangelism. All too many churches and ministries seem to have man-made programs while the Lord has a heavenly, glorious plan. And once again, man's programs all too often don't line up with God's plan to spread the treasure that He has used to fill these earthen vessels.
Acts 6: From Organism to Organization
011 June 19
What appears to be a minor and subtle change in the early church may be a paradigm shift that planted seeds for tares to come forth later on. It is the beginning of a transformation of a lively, living body into what often becomes a bloated, stagnant, imitation of His Body.
Acts 6: It's All Greek To Me
010 June 12
The apostle Paul warned against being taken captive through philosophy, but it seems as though the church today may be more influenced by Aristotle than by God's Word. As the old saying goes, 'Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.'
Church Growth - The Bad
009 June 5
There is a program afoot to fill the pulpits and pews of congregations and it is not evangelism, it is not revival, it is not good - it is in fact evil! It is about shepherds responsibility to deal with the wolves and false brethren.
The Church in Transition
008 May 29
A prayerful look at the early changes in a church that is always supposed to look like Jesus Christ who is the same 'yesterday, today, and yes forever.'
The Application of Love
007 May 22
Like faith which is dead without works, love that is not applied in action is useless and dead. There is a word, and a plan in the Lord's church, for that action - it is called 'Ministry'
Love in a Word
006 May 15
A study of the Word to grow in our understanding of true love in the midst of an onslaught of worldly misunderstandings and imitations. This week's program is about seeking the heart of Jesus in our own lives.
Christianity in a Word
005 May 8
There are many, many words, adjectives, that help describe what true Christianity is - but there is only one word that can truly define it: "Love." It is about the love of God - loving God, and His love working in and through our lives to touch others.
That Was Not Attractive
004 May 1
A response to feedback from a brother. This is about the power of words and worldly attraction. It is about wonder and the horror of the cross of Christ. It is about change.
The Imitation of Jesus
003  April 24
Talking like Jesus, thinking like Jesus and acting like Jesus - that is the imitation of Jesus - not the counterfeit. And of course, it is all based on loving like Jesus.
Relationship & Commitment
002  April 17
The second episode of this new program takes a look at the foundational truths of our faith. We then ask if those truths are to be found in practice in our lives today today.
The Introduction
001  April 10
In this first episode of our new program we look at establishing the guidelines for the study and start to first of all get a Spirit-led definition of true Christianity so we know what to look for as we progress in this quest for understanding and wisdom.
