Held against my will, I fought against the bonds. Why had I been taken? As they drove me down roads and streets, I recognized nothing in the low morning light. At one stop I was able to get a picture of a house on a hill. I went to send it to one of my friends. But each time I worked the button it signaled that it could not send. I began to pray. As we climbed the hill towards the house I had taken a picture of, it became lighter as the sun was readying to come up. The captors pulled into a barn at the end of the driveway. Bright lights came on and they took me from the car. A large older man sat there in a chair and smirked. “Thanks for coming here.” I said nothing. He kept on. He was the owner of many grocery stores. He told me “you will be helpful in the coming days.” Over the next few hours, he began to detail to me that as a Christian I had powers that could be helpful to his business. At one pint I asked him why he did not consider becoming a believer. He laughed and told me that believers were weak when it came right down to it. Not ruthless in their actions.

I had a dream last night and in that dream men and women were being bought by traders and they were going to be used for the slave and sex trades while others were going to be used to tend to their fields, to their children, to all sorts of things.
In waking up I recognize very quickly that my dream had to do with the captivity of man. One of the things we often forget to think about are the benefits of God.
Last night I had a dream about something that needed to be translated but no one in the place could figure out how to do it. A message was given to us. There was something unusual about it. Yet no one could decode it. (Yes, they even tried a Google translator.) A friend took it to a little child next door. In moments he translated it, decoded it and back came the paper. The main word of difficulty had a box around it. With stars. It was there. “Embrace of that which cost you nothing and move towards that which is designed for you.”[pullquote]“Embrace of that which cost you nothing and move towards that which is designed for you.”[/pullquote] Continue reading What Is Free?→
In a dream last night I met with this young person. He was perhaps 20-25 years old. As we talked, He unfolded His knowledge of things. His knowledge included things of God and the Bible. As we continued to talk and I asked questions, more and more his answers were, “I do not know” or I do not know how to do that”. As I left him and continued my journey even in the dream I realized he did not have a “clue” about so many things. He had even shared with me his church experiences and he had seen some very cool things. But these were relegated to an entertainment “status” in mind. Not something he or his friends planned on doing or even knew how to do. His plan was to become more educated, to learn more. Continue reading Legacy Is Light And Life→
When Elvis Presley sang about being “all shook up” he was talking about love. But here so many years later there are people walking about who are all shook up, as well… And it is about love. His love for us!
The declaration of “your kingdom come, your will be done here on earth as it is in heaven” is an invitation for shaking. An invitation to God to appear. To emerge through His people. The earth at one point had fallen under the kingship of evil. It is being shaken. Exactly what can be shaken? Empires, governments, monarchies, banks, businesses, churches, families, individuals and anything else available! Continue reading Whole Lotta Shaking’ Going On→
Push. Pull. Get what you want. Hurt people in the process.
James 4:1-2 Where do you think all these appalling wars and quarrels come from? Do you think they just happen? Think again. They come about because you want your own way, and fight for it deep inside yourselves. You lust for what you don’t have and are willing to kill to get it. You want what isn’t yours and will risk violence to get your hands on it. You wouldn’t think of just asking God for it, would you? And why not? Because you know you’d be asking for what you have no right to. You’re spoiled children, each wanting your own way.Continue reading Who’s Side Are We On?→
Yesterday I read of a young woman who I knew who made bad choices and was in jail and would most likely be there for a while. I read of a historic heroin bust in the state of New Hampshire. They are connected in the simple fact that people are stepping up to pray for the goodness of God to be rolled out in New England (And I am sure in other regions, as well.)
