Ezra 4-5; 1 Corinthians 12; Proverbs 4 There will always be opposition to the Word of the Lord. After all, we are in a war. It is kingdom against kingdom, just as Jesus said. And so, if you find yourself in a wrestling match, do not lose hope. Do not despair. Fight! Fight to keep […]

Overcoming Spiritual Opposition: The Battle for Your Calling

Guest post by Juniah Ramirez Ezra 2-3; 1 Corinthians 11; Proverbs 3 These were some heavy chapters today. In 1 Corinthians 11, there’s a lot of correction about being together and coming together—not just for the better, but for the worse.

Rediscovering Communion: A Call to Intimacy with Jesus

We’ve been reading through the history of Israel and the long lineage of kings and rulers spanning hundreds of years. And for the most part, we see a dark history of apostasy and idolatry.

Seeing Beyond Fear: Unveiling Spiritual Reality in a Blind World

Reflecting on Romans 14, we see a clear directive: “Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him.” Who are we to judge another’s servant? Each person stands or falls before their own master, […]

Breaking the Chains of Division: Rediscovering Unity in Christianity

1 Kings 21-22; Romans 13; Psalm 139 With all that is unraveling within the prayer movement, as we read through the scriptures together, I find myself reexamining what constitutes the true prophetic in our shared history and faith.

1 Kings 11-12; Romans 8; Psalm 134 How many believers find themselves still ensnared by the power of sin? How many live burdened under the yoke of condemnation? I know many. Undoubtedly, you do too.
