April will make 11yrs of 100% Veganism for me! Was so-called "Holy Week" of 2001. That's a lot of corn tortillas, when in doubt about bread or other things normally eaten with one's food! LOL! Had to give up Veggie Burgers for a few years because they got prohibitively expensive at well over $1 a piece, but the other day I managed to get my hands on one brand of Vegan Veggie Burgers that's a leading brand at a local store that carries 'em for $2.89 for a box of 4. That's a $1.50 savings on a box anywhere else!
I was definitely a happy dude this week with having a couple of Veggie burger sandwiches. Didn't have hamburger buns, but used wheat bread slices. I've been ...

Good little faith affirmation would be to start affirming your eyesight will be 20/15 by the year 2015. Gives your thanksgiving & your faith something to diligently pursue, particularly if you're needing your faith to do something very strengthening and corrective by then, so that you'll have those well-timed organic blue berries for your eyes, or be lead, after you've developed your faith substantially for that, to stop useage of any particular products that are giving you a hard time in that area of your body! For some of you, that'll be better eyesight than you've ever had in your life, even if you've never considered yourself to have any deficiencies in your eyes!
Your goal is to affirm words to ...

I want to briefly deal with St. Augustine's argument that's currently a mainstream view of Matthew 25:46. Some scholars believe that the Greek word “aion“ and it‘s adjective form “aionios“ can mean any period of time from brief to endless, depending on context: when applies to God they believe it would mean endless, but when applied to men, or to mankind then they believe that it means a finite duration. There are Christian Universalists that believe that that way, so I don't want to sound like I'm running over anybody about this. Credible scholars believe that aionios can mean eternal, while admitting it's force in Matthew 25:46 is only pertaining to an age. However, "aion" ...

25 neither is He attended by human hands, as if requiring anything, since He Himself gives to all life and breath and all. Acts 17:25 Concordant Literal New Testament

I hope no one is ever juvenile enough to try to claim that by not quoting the part about the resurrection that somehow that proves I'm an ungodly liberal that doesn't believe in the resurrection. No, I believe in the resurrection more firmly than anyone, but I want to draw attention to something in the text. Initially, I wasn't all of ...

Pastors and Bishops, you really do yourself a disservice and your congregations are hindered by your lack of diligence to claim every single building, house, boat, clothes, every single automobile, and everything else in your county being totally paid off, in the Name of Jesus. Doesn't matter if the property belongs to the righteous or the wicked, 'cause of who our Father sends the rain to. PEOPLE CAN'T OBEY GOD WITH WHAT THEY DON'T OWN! How many people do you suppose God's told to give a house or a car or anything else to a member of your congregation and they go to God with "after 75 more payments!"?
Not very many of 'em 'cause God KNOWS they don't own it, so they CAN'...

I sent an email to someone that's heard and practiced most of the same tapes and CDs that I've heard and practiced over the years in the Word of Faith movement, and thought something came out with such additional clarity from how I'd explained it to someone previously that I thought I'd add the text of the email here for the benefit of all. I had put "Word of the Lord" in the subject line, which explains my clarification on the "Word of the Lord" that I was alluding to, to them in sharing what the Lord had just blessed us all with:
I got the phrase we'd been missing in the Word of Faith circles all of these years and don't care if it's never attributed to me in it really hitting ...

By not understanding the teachings of Lord Jesus, St. Paul, & others of the Bible we've oversimplified the concept of FULFILLMENTS. Preterism, Futurism, Historicism, Literalism, & Allegoricism EACH snub the Word of Faith teaching of Scripture regarding seed-faith by words & corresponding actions. Matthew 8:17 is said to have been fulfilled that day, yet couldn't be 'til the Cross, YET people STILL get supernaturally HEALED! Even on touchy subjects among Christian & Jewish theologians, like the virgin birth, a spiritual fruit need not be a point of contention on literal verses allegorical, nor to debate whether it was INTENDED to convey that meaning, nor need it bring in the debate regarding the evolution...

All of the same principles regarding physical and mental wholeness are the exact same principles as your rightstanding with God through Christ. If you're TRYING TO be healed, you've completely fallen from grace! Hebrews 1:3 (KJV), as an example: "when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high." Saying you're trying to get healed is like saying you're trying to get righteousness. You can read Hebrews, because of what Isaiah says, as saying "when he had by himself purged our sicknesses & diseases, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high!"
Most of you would choke at the thought of someone TRYING TO ATTAIN TO 2Corinthians 5:21 ...

2 The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and might,
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.
3 His delight is in the fear of the Lord,
And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes,
Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;
4 But with righteousness He shall judge the poor,
And decide with equity for the meek of the earth;
He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth,
And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.
5 Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins,
And faithfulness the belt of His waist. (Isaiah 11:2-5 NKJV)
Some things when you're not sure if God's telling you, a VERY ...

A whole lot of "heavens and earth" references in the Bible specifically relate to Judaism & are about the 70AD judgments that hit Israel. An exception would be in Isaiah 65 where it's clearly talking about the New Covenant that was being established. However, tread softly & carefully on Hebrews 12:26 through 29 which are clearly speaking of a shaking that would come as a result of fire. There is a shaking in Scripture that's coming, but this passage in Hebrews 12:26-29 is talking about 70AD. The shaking we're anticipating is in Ezekiel 38:19-20 and it's explained to us in Jeremiah 33:9.
There's a big difference between the shaking of Hebrews 12:26-29 that was an age-lasting ...
