A letter to my landlord

Dear Dave, I thought I would write you to wish you and your family season’s greetings. At this time of year, many people celebrate many different things. And when I was young, Jesus was not really part of the celebration. Today, it remains true that many people who celebrate Christmas do not celebrate the birth…

This is the second in a two-part mini series. The first in this series is, Divine Encounter: The S/x Shop Worker. I was like the Big Bad Wolf in the story of the Three Little Pigs: I was huffing and puffing as I ran to that bus station to catch my bus! I huffed, and…

Divine Encounter: The S/x Shop Worker

As I was running to catch my bus, I could not help but notice the man standing in front of the s/x shop. Certainly this man was in great need, and did not know the Lord. That, I was certain. I walked over to the man and started a conversation with him. “Are you the…

When Satan Attacks (Part 4)

Satan is waiting to take advantage of your situation. Maybe it’s a job situation that has gone wrong — or really, any type of situation. Maybe it’s something from the past that has been nagging you. It’s time to bury the past, because it does not exist. It’s either a good memory, or a bad…

The Mark of the Beast, Part 1

Introduction On March 24, 2009, the Lord gave me a dream. In the dream, our dog was on fire. It was not gruesome – I could see the dog perfectly, and the dog was not even yelling – but the Lord was trying to show me something. I said to those standing there (my family)…

Q & A: On the Use of Tongues

Q. You have written that you have used tongues in a private context (when confronting a demon). Is this Scriptural? I thought tongues was only to be used in a church context, when an interpreter was present. Also, if tongues is valid for today, I believe that tongues might be applicable and useful for missionaries…

I had a dream once. My son’s piano teacher was announcing that she was starting her family. When I spoke to our son’s piano teacher, and told her the date I had the dream, she said, “That was only a few days after I found out myself!” She was stunned. I had another dream, once.…
