True and Faithful

Revelation 21:3-5 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” 5 Then He who sat on the {Read More}

Priests in Training

Photo Credit: Kristen Nicole As a mother, one of my primary purposes is to teach my children about Jesus and to “make ready a people prepared for the Lord” (Luke 1:17). I feel strongly that it is my calling to lead my children into the revelation of who Jesus is, how He feels about them, how He taught us to live, and to prepare them as best as I know how for His return to the earth. I also happen {Read More}

Longing for Eden

Today I am nearly at the 38 week mark in this pregnancy and the above photo couldn’t be more true – in more ways than one. First of all, I am longing for my baby Eden to be born and am getting increasingly impatient for his arrival! As the end draws near, there is literal  discomfort and pain in the longing as my body aches from this journey of pregnancy, mixed with hope and anticipation and joy, knowing of the {Read More}

Jesus: The Lord Saves

“Grace and peace to you from…Jesus Christ…” Revelation 1:4, 5  The Lord Saves So, for my first post in my series on “The Revelation of Jesus Christ”, I want to share some thoughts on the Son of God’s given name – Jesus.  As it says in Matthew 1:21, “She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”  In the footnote for this verse, it {Read More}

The Revelation of Jesus Christ

A little while ago, Mike Bickle at the International House of Prayer was teaching on the book of Revelation and he spent some time focusing on the fact that this book was meant to reveal Jesus to us, as it says in the first five words of the book, “The revelation of Jesus Christ…”.  For many, this book can be intimidating and confusing, and though it is meant to give us insight into “what must soon take place” by revealing {Read More}

Read, Hear And Take To Heart These Words

Revelation 1:1-3 (NIV) 1 The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place…2 that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near. Jesus, I ask that You would give to me a desire for Your {Read More}

The Oil of His Name

Song of Songs 1:3 3 Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes (good ointments); your name is like perfume (ointment, aromatic oils, purified oil) poured out. No wonder the maidens (virgins) love you! Yesterday, my husband pointed something out to me that I had never considered before.  I have read the verse above from Song of Songs countless times, so I was a little surprised that I had never made the connection that he did, that this verse could be {Read More}

Will He find faith?

A passage that has been floating in my mind lately is Luke 18:7-8, which says, “And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?” This brought a rather sobering question to mind – is it possible to be {Read More}

Moving the Heart of the Judge

I’ve been reading and meditating on Psalm 106 over the last few days and my thoughts are still very incomplete, but I’m going to attempt to make sense of them through writing… They exchanged their Glory In verse 20 and 21 it says, “They exchanged their Glory for an image of a bull, which eats grass. They forgot the God who saved them…”  This hit me personally and I felt the conviction of the Holy Spirit, for how many times {Read More}

Making Ready a People Prepared

Lately I’ve been reading and meditating on Isaiah chapters 61 to 63 which contains several scriptures pertaining to the coming of the Messiah, both His first coming and His second.  The verse which stuck out to me recently though was Isaiah 62:10 which says, “Pass through, pass through the gates!  Prepare the way for the people.  Build up, build up the highway!  Remove the stones.  Raise a banner for the nations.” Prepare the way for the Lord I believe this {Read More}
