Lately, I have been seeing the fire of God fall in meetings all across the land. There is a new intensity of the Glory that is being released in this season. There is an incredible expectation that God is about to do something, and that entire regions are about to be shifted into presence.
We have to live in the expectation that God can change a nation in a moment. This is the essence of Isaiah 66:8, where Isaiah asks rather rhetorically: “can God not do this?” We hav
Psalm 127:1 - Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it.
There is another scripture in Ecclesiastes 11:1, which says: “Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days.”
Many years ago now (before I met my wife and before I had the five children that now live in my house), I had a dream. It was actually an encounter that I had with heaven. I walked through the gate of heaven, which understates the actual weight of that enc
I had a dream in the last three or four months. In it, I was with my pastor Mark Redner, and we were standing together in heaven. We were standing in a classroom and were with many people. I was very surprised to see Jesse James there since he was an outlaw who killed many people in the old west after the civil war.
In front of the room I said, “My pastor and I were in ministry together for 35 years and we saw between 30 and 35 million people come to Christ.” My pastor
Recently, the Lord has been speaking to me about a Great Lakes Revival. We heard this when we were recently ministering in Niagara Falls, which was in late March. My friend Ben Johnston, a young prophet from Montreal, saw a a portal between America and Canada in the form of a giant circle. He said he could see revival breaking out in America, and angels were coming over to the Canadian side to release a new measure of righteousness as it has risen in the United States. When
Sometimes when the Lord speaks, it can be very loud. He will say the same thing over and over again, and even if you don’t understand what is being said, he doesn’t mind. Recently, I kept seeing 22 everywhere I looked. Every time I checked my cell phone it was either 1:22, 2:22 or 9:22. I would see 22 on licence plates. We parked in section 22 of a parking lot at a mall. And 22 was flashing in a lottery sign. Apparently you could win 22 million this weekend (as I wrote
2 Corinthians 3:18 tells us, "But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are
changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord."
The Lord has been speaking to me lately about upgrades. Recently, I was sitting in an airport lounge waiting for my flight to leave, when the airline staff called me over the PA to come forward to the desk. I have rarely ever had such a thing happen in my life, so I didn’t know wh
I was recently in Colorado, and saw the most pristine mountains. There was still snow high up in the peaks. There was a late snow this year and although it was late in May there was still much evidence of winter’s grip on the land.
This picture sits inside of me as I consider the current political landscape of the United States. Although there was a change of seasons that took place when President Trump came to power, there still seems to be a grip of winter on the lan
One time I was at a Starbucks coffee shop in the South End of Ottawa, Canada. I have a fondness for reading books and drinking coffee and so in those days I often found myself at the Chapters bookstore where a Starbucks was attached. For my American friends, Chapters is much like an Indigo bookstore.
I was actually on my way to work this day. I had been in training for my job all morning and had to work that evening. This was my only window to myself that day. By the end o
17 Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.
In this prayer of Habakkuk, we see the prophet declaring the destruction of Israel at the hand of the Babylonian horde. As he prays he recognizes the great hand of God in bringing ab
Unless the Lord builds the house,
those who build it labor in vain.
Seeking God in all things, and obeying his voice, is key to all sorts of blessings in one’s life. Some say that we shouldn’t seek God for his blessings, but why in the world would you ever want to serve a God that didn’t bless you? He is a good father who gives good gifts to his children (Matthew 7:11).
His greatest gift is his very presence: His peace in my heart during trials; His
