Revival Continues in California Despite Recent Restrictions, but Is it Legitimate?

Revival in breaking out across California and I believe what we are seeing in the sunshine state is genuine (in most cases). Is there genuine fruit? Does the experience align with God’s Word? Is the fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5 present: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control? A true, genuine experience with the Holy Spirit will produce godly fruit and obedience to God. It seeks to promote those things that are pure and righteous.

Stadium Revival Draws over 1,000 Worshipers in California

The church needs spiritual power more than ever, not entertainment. This is what we are seeking at #TheStadiumRevival. There is a desperate need to preach and proclaim God’s Word with genuine power if we are to experience true revival.

Is Trump Using Christians? No, But God Is Using Him

A group of Republican Christians are urging other Republicans and Christians not to re-elect President Trump. But, in voting for the President, we are not supporting President Trump’s past lifestyle; we are supporting a movement back to God.

Jen Hatmaker Celebrates Daughter's Lesbian Identity - What She Got Right and Wrong

God’s Word is very clear on the dangers of homosexuality, adultery, pornography, and other sexual sins. If our sexual preferences run contrary to God’s Word we must change our preferences, not the other way around.

The Sin of Silence in the Pulpit

In a world with ever-changing morals, Pastors must stand up for Biblical truth.

Can We Still Support Donald Trump?

The charge of being a hypocrite if you support the president is often thrown at many Bible-believing Americans. But hypocrisy means to intentionally deceive someone—who I am on Sunday is not who I am on Monday. We are not dealing with hypocrisy here. So what are we dealing with?

American Must Be 'One Nation Under God,' Not Above God

Many of the men and women who died for our freedoms did not die for what we are becoming today. Many gave their lives so that we would be “one nation under God,” not above God.

How 2 Chronicles 7:14 Applies to the Current Pandemic

I recently had the privilege of speaking to our church audience from 2 Chronicles 7:14. Both messages can be heard here and here. The sacred text says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” Note that it does not say, “If Hollywood or Washington or the media turns to God,” but “if My people” turn.

This Easter, Don't Forget about the Cross

The cross, sin, and repentance have never been popular terms even though they are at the heart of the Christian faith. Jesus Himself said that the cross would be offensive. Sadly, many today water down the gospel and avoid talking about the cross. They want the Bible to be more appealing and marketable. But truth is not marketable! We are to guard it, proclaim it, and defend it, but never compromise it.
