Does God Still Speak?

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.” (Luke 2:14) This is arguably the most significant announcement ever made by God to man. For thousands of years God’s people had been looking and waiting for the promised Messiah. The religious elite had pored over the ancient […]

The Spirit Within Us

Is a Christian indwelt fully by the Holy Spirit at conversion? The Holy Spirit works in us continually from conversion through sanctification, and subsequently through various giftings and empowering. If the Holy Spirit is God and dwells within us, what does that call us to? We should continually be filled up by the Holy Spirit. […]

Holy Spirit Baptism

The believers received the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, and Jesus said when you receive the Holy Spirit, you receive the power to be witnesses. Believers look at Holy Spirit Baptism in different doctrinal ways. These doctrinal differences leave some staying away from the mysterious Holy Spirit, and others with no desire to […]

God, The Holy Spirit

When we surrender our lives to Jesus, it’s the Holy Spirit who woos us, convicts us, transforms us, empowers us – it’s all the work of the Holy Spirit which is the spirit of Christ, and the Holy Spirit dwells in us. A.W. Tozer says “We will never understand the Holy Spirit so long as […]

Be Filled With the Holy Spirit

“That person is a Spirit-filled Christian! That’s a Spirit-filled church!” What does it mean? Dallas has the privilege of seeing the Body of Christ in its many expressions and in all of his travels and opportunities, there is a noticeable absence of the Holy Spirit. It leads to to hearing phrases like, “It’s a good […]

Running The Race

I’m running the raceI’m running the race to winI’m running the raceI’m running the race to winSometimes I felt like giving upAnd falling down withinBut I’m still running the raceI’m running the race to win(Dallas Holm/Signal 1983) One of my favorite uncles sent me a birthday card years ago. On the front were cartoonish characters […]

Lyrics for Life

“The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy; I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly.” (John 10:10 NASB) This is a verse with which I assume we are all familiar. Many of the modern day “prosperity preachers” have wrongly leveraged this verse in a way to suggest that Christians […]

Food For Thought

As a child, I thought that was an odd saying… “food for thought.” When I thought of food I thought of my stomach, not my mind. I thought of being hungry, I thought of cheeseburgers. However, as I got older, I realized that my mind needed wholesome nourishment as well as and perhaps more than […]

Respond

Put on the helmet of salvationPut on the breastplate of righteousnessClothe your whole being in holy armorWorthy to stand the test We’re in the battle of the agesIn the Lord’s army there’s no retreatFighting against the powers of darknessFor us there is no defeat(It’s War/Change The World, 1985 Words and Music by Dallas Holm) In […]

Prepare

I have watched the storm clouds gather on the horizon I have listened to the distant thunder rollI have felt a stronger current in the oceanI have felt a stronger current in my soulI have felt the earth tremble beneath my feetI have heard the breakers crash upon the shoreI have seen a stronger wind […]
