God is doing things here, and unlike the nine men Jesus healed who did not come back to thank Him, one came back to recognize His power. I can put that into a broader analogy than just healing. I hope as you watch God do things, you are not unaware He is steering and sorting [...]

Jesus said, “which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat? And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten [...]

The second item is no more glamorous than the first: “They shall come near to me to minister unto me, and they shall stand before me,” in that Old Testament sense of “stay there a while.” “Well now, wait a minute, God! I’m in here now. You’ve created the world in days. I’m here, I [...]

Peter says, “No prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.” (2 Peter 1:20) I don’t really know which particular act will put someone beyond the pale, but I know the psychological results: when you have committed it, you won’t worry about it anymore, because the Holy Spirit will turn you over to a [...]

Loneliness, misunderstanding; is there anybody here today who feels totally misunderstood? Don’t just hear words. Let it sink in a minute. You can let it beat you down as you look at your circumstance, or you can look up now and realize you are in the presence of a King. What better company could you [...]

The scribes came down on Jesus; they “said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.” And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power [...]

Now, I hope you’ll hear me very closely here. Notice who made the issue: it wasn’t Elisha, it was the crowd. They put the pressure on him. You don’t find Elisha saying, “Hey, you bunch of non-spiritual hypocritical sons of the prophets, if you had what you ought to have from God, you’d be chasing [...]

This inner court ministry is hidden, and because it is hidden there is only one motivation, and that is the second reason I think God puts it in priority: only your love for God will bring you in here. In the outer court, acclaim for accomplishments can keep you going. Somebody sitting there says, “I [...]

In John 17, Jesus prays a high priestly prayer, the true “Lord’s Prayer.” The traditional Lord’s Prayer is really the Disciples’ Prayer: Jesus never prayed that one, He told us to pray it. The Lord’s Prayer is in  John 17. Jesus prays, “Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that He may also glorify [...]

God said to Moses, “I have been known before by my other names but through you and to this people I am going to reveal myself as JEHOVAH.” (Exodus 6:3) And then He began to do it, and a series of names began to unfold. In fact, the use of the name Jehovah attached to [...]
