Praying in Tongues for the Evangelical: How does it work?

July 29, 2011 by


How do you teach on a supernatural gift? After all, the ability to do it is given directly from God to us. That is true, however, I believe God is giving grace in these last days to allow us to teach on all supernatural gifts. I don’t believe we can teach someone how to do […]

Praying in Tongues for the Evangelical: Is it good?

July 27, 2011 by


I thought I would touch on one of the most controversial topics in the Bible for today’s church. The gift of tongues comes up time and time again when talking about the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Simple Ministry to a Lost World

July 25, 2011 by


Here is my attempt to simplify the ministry that everyone in the church has been called to join.

Making Sure the Bridegroom Knows Us

July 7, 2011 by


Matthew 25:11-12 “Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’ “But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.'” I just posted ‘Time: Our greatest Commodity.’ In that post I discussed how our greatest commodity to spend on anything to become successful is time.  I then talked […]

I recently watched the live streaming from Gateway Church this past Sunday where Pastor Preston Morrison continued their current series on ‘The Wilderness.’ First, let me say: AMAZING!!! This post will be my comments based upon the message he gave. Some of the thoughts here will be from Pastor Morrison. I will do my best […]
