Oh God, Would You Please Rip Open the Heavens!

Do we really believe that all the evil in this world will simply reverse itself? No, it's only going to get worse unless God's people pull down heaven. It's time to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted. We must cry out, "Oh God, would you rip heaven open and come down?" We must wait on God and seek Him like never before because He "acts for the one who waits for Him" (Isaiah 64:4).

Bethel Church Responds to Pastor's Request for Clarification on Beliefs

Is it possible to not endorse or agree with Bethel church but still listen to their worship in a corporate setting? I'm not endorsing and promoting Bethel. I have concerns too. I understand that playing a church's music (in a sense) is viewed as promoting them. I get that, but there is a huge difference between direct promotion and indirect promotion because we have to legally acknowledge the source of the songs for licensing reasons.

What If a Prophet Is Wrong?

A "prophet," as mentioned in the Bible, can be anyone in a position of spiritual authority or claiming to be. They are not to be elevated or idolized. We follow Christ, not men. False teachers aren't ostentatiously dressed in red, armed with a pitchfork. They often provide layers of truth mixed with error, but even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Bored with God—Complacency in the Midst of Chaos

Will you have to lose your job, your retirement, your health, or your comfort before you finally wake up? From mass shootings and civil unrest to the promotion of perverted sexual sin and the indoctrination of children, we can all add to the list. So my question is: What's it going to take to get us back on our knees? It seems that most Christians are bored with God. When everything is on the line, they still have no desire to seek Him.
