Testing the faith of believers and challenging them to give all to Jesus

  1. Battle Strategy: Forgiveness

    by , December 3rd, 2017 at 01:46 PM (Spiritual Assayers)
    Recently we were able to help a lady we met who had been kicked out of where she had been living. It was tough situation for her so we did what we could to help. Wanda spent long hours talking with her and soon discovered much in this lady’s past where she had been traumatized by others. To help her Wanda and I walked her through some of the inner healing principles that we had learned from Elijah House and knew worked. When I got to the point about forgiveness she balked. Immediately barriers ...
  2. The Fire and The Baboon

    In recent days Wanda and I, Ida and Fanny have found ourselves ‘out’ again which means we lack a permanent home. It is not a pleasant place to be but it is what God has given us. The other day Mia, a much beloved sister in Christ, sent us a story about a fire and a baboon. The story touched me deeply for it was a clear parable from the Lord about our situation. I asked our dear friend if we could reproduce it and she has graciously agreed. As you read please keep in mind that our family can ...
  3. Patient Endurance

    In my many years in churches I don't recall ever hearing a message, sermon or talk about patient endurance. I may have heard the term used in passing or in some theological framework but I never heard a teacher or pastor really explain what patient endurance is. Frankly I think these people have done a disservice to the Body of Christ by not discussing patient endurance and how important it is to the life of real faith and the journey through the wilderness. It is so very important that I am going ...
  4. Willing or Becoming

    In Luke 14:33 it is written “So then, any of you who does not forsake (renounce, surrender claim to, give up, say good-bye to) all that he has cannot be My disciple.” Now read that verse carefully. Got it? Now read it again to see if there is a mistake in that verse? Anything? If you listen to many pastors, bible teachers and theologians there is a mistake. These people would tell you the words “does not” should actually be interpreted as “not willing to.” As in “any of you not willing to forsake… ...
  5. Cost Benefit Analysis

    When we lived in P.E.I. I once had a crazy thought. Now this thought is really wild and I am kind of scared about throwing it at you because it is so bizarre. Well here goes. I was thinking that we often talk, as believers, about what Jesus did for us on the cross and all that God has done for us. Webpages and books wax eloquent on the gracious, giving nature of God and how great His gifts are to us. So here is my crazy thought. What does God get in return? For all of God’s magnanimity and Jesus’ ...
