Men, Love Your Wives

Run With It

In America, today is a day we traditionally celebrate our human fathers. The day is referred to as “Father’s Day,” so I am going to focus more today on the role of the husband and father than I am on the role of the wife and mother. And actually that is appropriate because the man is to be the head of the household and the one who leads his family spiritually (if he is a Christian), and so he should be the one to set the tone for what happens in the home, although I realize he can’t entirely control all that goes on.

Now let me say this. My human father, although he claimed to be a Christian, and although he made sure we were “in church” every time the doors were open, was a bully and an abuser who took advantage of all who were weaker than him…

The Diotrephes syndrome.

Are we there yet?

A Call To The Remnant

The name Diotrephes means “nourished by Jupiter.” Jupiter was the Roman God, the most important of all their gods and was worshiped across the Roman empire. He symbolizes everything Rome was. And the Diotrephes that we meet in 3rd John is a man who loved to have the preeminence. Many believe that the dagger that was struck at the heart of the Church was Constantine, but in reality it was this man as early as the 80s ad. I discovered over my 20 years participation in the system, that fellowship with mere professors was harmful to my own walk and was met, for the most part, by indifference from those who at best, were perpetual babes as opposed to sons and daughters. This perpetual state of infancy( and I’m being generous) is perpetuated by the very system itself. Clergy/laity divide is the main symptom of the Diotrophes syndrome. Diotrophes replaced…

The Seven Mountains Apostasy -Revisited

Think on these things. Time may be short

Reasoned Cases For Christ

7 mountains

This post was originally written back in 2017 and it is just as relevant today (probably more so) as it was five years ago. For additional information on “Dominionism” please click here.

I’d like to begin this post with a note of urgency. There is a strong delusion rapidly growing within the Christian Church throughout the whole world, right now. Whether you realize it or not, it is here and it is growing at an alarming rate. The Word of God has already warned us that this was going to happen.

The Church, the body of Christ, especially Pastors and teachers, really need to take this very seriously. In fact, all Christians should take this very seriously.


2 Thessalonians 2 
RSV reads as follows:
Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our assembling to meet him, we beg you, brethren, not to be quickly…

“This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!” ~God

Jesus Quotes and God Thoughts

See the source image

I believe that Jesus, God’s anointed King (aka Messiah) is God’s Holy Son.

  • Jesus is God’s Son in that He was conceived in Mary by the Holy Spirit.
  • Luke 1:35 declares, “The angel answered, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So, the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.’”
  • God declared it to be true. God said “This is My beloved Son with whom I am well-pleased”

Jesus declared it to be true.

Do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’?

John 10:36

And again, in Luke 22:70 Jesus makes it clear.

And they all said, “Are You the Son of God, then?” And He said to them, “Yes, I am.”

Jesus is not…

Therefore God Sends Them A Strong Delusion

Possessing the Treasure

by Mike Ratliff

And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Did I not tell you that he would not prophesy good concerning me, but evil?” And Micaiah said, “Therefore hear the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing beside him on his right hand and on his left; and the Lord said, ‘Who will entice Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead?’ And one said one thing, and another said another. Then a spirit came forward and stood before the Lord, saying, ‘I will entice him.’ And the Lord said to him, ‘By what means?’ And he said, ‘I will go out, and will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ And he said, ‘You are to entice him, and you shall succeed; go out and do so.’ Now therefore…
