Resurrection Power – Part 1
Resurrection Sundays are for resurrection power. God is a power source or power supply. Prayer is a power switch. The church is intended to be a power station. In this power-packed message Kris dissects Ephesians 1:18-22 and positions the believer in Christ at the right hand of all power. Preached at YES! Church
Resurrection Power – Part 2
A message on “the mighty power of God” wrought in Christ when God raised Him from the dead (Eph 1:19,20). Kris looks at the words dunamis, energia, ischus and kratos and outlines the victorious resurrection life available to every believer. Seven detailed points on spiritual power.
“Speak to the people that they go forward” (Exodus 14:15) In this acrostic message Kris shows how to “fast forward” your way to the place you desire to be in God and in life. F is for Focus, O is for Optimism, R is for Relationships and so on. A Sunday morning sermons from YES! Church
A Church of Under-Shepherds
“I will give them pastors according to my heart…” (Jer 3:15) This message paints a clear picture of the gifts, calling, mission, burden and enemies of a pastor, or spiritual shepherd. Kris offers exposition on most of the biblical texts regarding pastors and applies them to under-shepherds whom God is raising up to assist in the pastoral work.
Acts Chapter Two
A Day of Pentecost message, walking through Acts chapter two, dealing with unity, spiritual illumination, numerical increase and more.
Kill the Bull!
Anyone like Leviticus? Applying the symbolism of the burnt offering to our consecration as “living sacrifices”. Moses demanded that we “kill the bull”, whether the literal bullock or the “bull” in our own lives.
Sometimes we ignore the mountain and drive around it, others we scale it or tunnel through, but Christ teaches us how to command it to move. This message defines several Greek words dealing with Mountain Moving Faith.
Noah’s Day, Our Day
As the days of Noah were, so shall be the coming of Christ. Learn the parallels between the former age and our own.
The Calm Psalm
Kris walks verse-by-verse through Psalm 91 on how to maintain a calm spirit. Prioritize, personalize, positivize, etc. Claim this psalm in times of pandemic, catastrophe and social unrest. In Christ the rest is better because He’s better than the rest!
WOW Factor (Walking On Water)
Excuse makers are in the boat, history makers are out on the waves. Learn how to walk in faith in this powerful message from the old familiar story of Peter walking on water.
An exciting exposition of Psalm 47. Praise precedes, predicts, prevails, preserves, etc. Everything runs smoother with praise.

“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 2
He who finds a wife find a good thing (Prov 18:22). What to look for in a wife. A good wife is a great favor from the Lord. Let us know if you like our new relaxed teaching style. We need traffic – like, comment, share!
“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 3
We look at two symbolisms for wives, a rib and a vine. As a rib she has structure and protects the heart. As vine she tangles herself in every area of the home. Her children are like olive plants, producing the anointing (Psa 128).
“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 4
“Working Woman” is a misnomer because that’s all women usually do is work, breakfast to bedtime. The Proverbs 31 woman rises before sunlight and watches well to the ways of her household (a householder holds the house together).
“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 5
1 Tim 5:14 says a wife should guide or manage the home, oikodespotes – she is a “house despot”, governing within the home. Tricia parodies despot housewives with “Desperate Housewives”. Learn about a wife’s authority.
“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 6
Solomon said the Model Mom perceives things (Prov 31:18). Her lamp never goes out, or her spiritual perceptivity (Prov 20:27). His lamp is out as soon as he hits the bed, she is awake in the Spirit thru the night.
“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 7
She is not afraid of snow for her household (Prov 31:21). Come a blizzard, she takes all things in stride and knows Who holds tomorrow. Let us know if you are enjoying this vital marriage and family series.
“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 8
1 Peter 3:7 says the wife is the weaker vessel, certainly not morally, spiritually or academically. She is weaker as in fine china being more fragile than a Thermos jug. Each partner has a function.
“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 9
The Proverbs 31 model’s children are “clothed with scarlet”, symbolic of the cleansing blood of Christ. She pleads Calvary’s finished work over them. Salvation is for the whole house. Plead the blood!
“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 10
The Model Mom ministers to her husband (vs 11), her household (vs 21), then herself (vs 22). We are to be sacrificial but not totally without self. Pamper yourself on occasion. Because the husband just “sits” in the gate!
“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 11
In the motherly instinct of putting everyone ahead of her, she often loses herself in the process. Ladies need to find their rightful place and purpose, we know that place is at Jesus’ feet, in faith and humility.
“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 12
Her husband is known in the gates – the gates of the city as a civic leader and the gates of hell as a spiritual warrior. This message shows that the dad, husband and man of God is to walk in spiritual authority.
“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 13
Dealing today with how a wife projects herself through her family, dresses in honor, and has a confident faith in the future. NIV says “she smiles at the future”. All will be well!
“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 14
“She opens her mouth…” Many problems would be solved by watching our mouths. She opens it with wisdom, not haste, not criticism. She obeys the law of kindness. We don’t break the law, the law breaks us!
“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 15
“She looks well to the ways of her house”. She sees. things men fail to see, perceptive, intuitive. Nothing gets past Mom. She refuses to eat the bread of idleness (Twinkies!). Idleness leads to gossip then being a busybody.
“If Mama Ain’t Happy…” – Lesson 16
Solomon is passing down to his daughter the very words learned from his mother. He said she “excels them all”. Your wife or daughter must be number one in your life, fairest of them all. Learn to compliment and praise.
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 2
“Little Four Letter Words”. Theme verse for this series, Christ is “come to seek and to save that which is lost” (Luke 19:10). A mouthful of 4-letter words! You’ll never know His loveliness until you know your lostness.
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 3
“Natural Born Killers”. Looking at seven words – a sinner’s stature, nature, future, etc. You can tell what you ARE by what you DO. Nature is proven by venture. Thank God for the juncture, the turning point, the Cross!
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 4
“Good at Sinning”. 7 points on “sin”, defined, defamed, defeated, defected from, etc. You need to defect, like someone escaping the tyranny of a slave state. No more excuses. Employ the fight or flight mechanism.
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 5
“Alright, We’re Going to the Doctor”. Thousands of American men die every year of stubbornness. They refuse to see the doctor. Dr. Law gives the diagnosis and the MRI isn’t very good. But Dr. Grace trades His antibodies for our virus. Good news!
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 6
“Grace for Every Case”. In grace, Jesus takes our place. Our chance outside grace? Not a trace. There’s grace for every case. Grace is a license to drive, it is not a license to sin. At last, grace will take us to outer space, heaven!
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 7
“And That’s Gospel!” Gospel preachers need to get back to preaching the gospel. Four “Gospels” but only one Gospel. It is the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, and more – every good thing purchased for us at the Cross.
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 8
“The Substitute”. Studying the substitutionary work of Christ on the Cross. One man died IN sin, one TO sin, but Jesus died FOR sin. He took our place, died in our stead, and tipped the scales of divine justice “in our favor”. That’s grace!
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 9
“Repaint, Ye Thinners!” “Repent or else!” said Christ to the church. To repent takes you back to the highest point. Have you ever been closer to God? Then get back to that acme point. Come clear with God by coming clean with God.
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 10
“The Blood Shed, the Blood Pled”. Propitiation appeases divine justice and reconciles God and man through the death of Christ on the Cross. The Victim is the Victor. The Judgment Seat is the Mercy Seat. The Blood shed is now blood pled.
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 11
“The Go-Between”. Christ hung between two thieves, He intercedes between us and Heaven, He is the escort that leads His people to God. Today, learn truths about the greatest arbitration case in history, the Cross.
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 12
“Just As If I’d”. Justification is a legal term, it sets the repentant believer in right standing with God, absolving guilt and imputing Christ’s righteousness. To be justified leaves one “just as if I’d” never sinned. That’s peace (Rom 5:1).
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 13
“Up for Adoption”. All Gentiles were “illegal aliens” (Eph 2:12), but faith in Christ grants adoption into the family of God and positions strangers as natural born sons, with full right to the Father’s love, blessing and inheritance.
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 14
“The At-One-Ment”. In the atonement we are made “at-one” with heaven. The feud stops at Calvary, men are made right with God and with each other. Christ’s blood satisfies justice and brings peace (Rom 5:1) and joy (Rom 5:11) to the heart.
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 15
“The Best Version: Conversion”. The first step toward discipleship is conversion. FROM darkness TO light. Remember, we are commissioned to make disciples, not just make converts. And converts should not be introverts. Get bold!
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 16
“The Great Exchange: Imputation”. I gave Him my old tattered garment; He gave me a robe of pure white. Today, learn about imputation and impartation. He gets our ugliness, we get His beauty. Heaven’s funds were transferred at the cross.
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 17
“SIN-onyms”. Today, learn 12 terms regarding missing the mark with God, “sin”-onyms. These deal with moral corruptness, crookedness, running afoul of the law, ignoring trespass signs and so forth. Calvary erases every trespass.
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 18
“Regeneration”. You must be born again! (John 3:7) Seven points on being born into the family of God. We must be regenerate because we were so degenerate! Christ bridges our depravity, deadness and distance through the cross.
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 19
“New Birth, New Worth”. New birth gives a new belonging (the Family of God) and a new business (freedom from sin). The choice is second birth or the second death (Rev 2:11). Great news, you get a second chance in the second birth!
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 20
Calvary alone makes man right with God. To reconcile a wristwatch means to adjust it to a true standard. Christ’s righteousness is the standard. But the rightness must be horizontal as well as vertical, manward and Godward.
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 21
Join the Righteous Brothers group today; receive Christ! You become Mr. Right (or Mizz) when you get right. When all is right (alright) then you have all His rights and reign in life (Rom 5:17). Align to His standard or right.
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 22
Christ gave Himself a ransom for our sins. We are bought with the precious blood of Christ! But ransom is not enough, there must be riddance. He is soon to return to rid us from the enemy’s hand. Look up!
TERMS OF THE CROSS – Lesson 23
The church’s sole business is the soul business. When the ump calls “safe” you’re in for the winning run. This final “term of the cross” message defines salvation and closes with the simple ABCs of salvation.
HIM – Lesson 2
Learn of the Person and Power of Christ. Nothing is more vital. This message walks through names of Christ from Genesis to Revelation. The scriptures testify of Jesus (John 5:39).
HIM – Lesson 3
The Son of God became the Son of Man so that sons of men can become sons of God. Without the virgin birth faith would collapse like a stack of cards. See that Jesus is eternal God. Salvation requires the perfect Babe.
HIM – Lesson 4
We’ve looked at His birth, now Jesus’ boyhood. Not much is said, other than an episode at the temple as a twelve-year-old. Know who you are on mama’s side, the earthly, but also Father’s side, the heavenly.
HIM – Lesson 5
When the Dove lit on Him, the Devil lit into Him. When God starts blessing the devil starts messing. Jesus’ baptism was a defining moment. Everyone needs a crisis time to get serious about ministry. Be filled with the Spirit!
HIM – Lesson 6
After His baptism and battle came His blessings, people healed, lives transformed. Learn of several interesting, sometimes comical healings performed by the Master. Paralysis, dropsy, deaf-muteness, etc.
HIM – Lesson 7
After the baptism, battles and blessings comes the beating and bleeding. The ultimate reason Jesus came was to shed His blood and die for us. Meet the Sacrifice, the Atonement, the Substitute. Saved by Blood Divine!
HIM – Lesson 8
Jesus walked thru the haunted house of Death and found it not so haunted after all (Heb 2:18). His birth, blessings, betrayal and bloodshed end in breakthrough. The third day is Day One for us. Christ lives!
HIM – Lesson 9
The last step on our journey thru the life of Christ is Breakthrough, or Break Out! The grave couldn’t hold Him, so why does it hold us? We died with Him but also rose and are seated with Him. Step out of the tomb!
WHAT’S RIGHT WITH RICHES? – Lesson 2
Wealth is given to increase wealth to further the Kingdom. Some wealth is for investment, some for enjoyment and some for employment. John D. Rockefeller gave away $530-million. That’s the “to do” in Well-to-do!
WHAT’S RIGHT WITH RICHES? – Lesson 3
Adopted into the family of God, we become joint-heirs of all that is available, both in the unseen and seen worlds. The gold follows the glory (Hag 2:7-8), so with His presence comes His supernatural provision.
WHAT’S RIGHT WITH RICHES? – Lesson 4
Yes, there are things that are RIGHT with riches, but also several things that are WRONG. The rich young ruler had riches, riches had him, and he was had! Beware the perils. Remember, it’s only paper!
WHAT’S RIGHT WITH RICHES? – Lesson 5
If God is against prosperity as some religion teaches, why all the positives mentioned about this global financial standard? The first verse on the subject says the gold of that land was good (Gen 2:12). Good gold!
WHAT’S RIGHT WITH RICHES? – Lesson 6
In this message a few perils of prosperity are shared. You’ve heard of the deceit of riches, what about he conceit? Many forget where they came from. If God grants wealth you must learn how to handle it.
WHAT’S RIGHT WITH RICHES? – Lesson 7
Learn 10 points on wealth-building from the wisest and richest man in the Bible, King Solomon. Purge the urge to splurge, put first things first, give yourself a pay raise by giving, etc. I recommend taking notes on these!
WHAT’S RIGHT WITH RICHES? – Lesson 8
Harder for the rich to enter the kingdom than a camel to go through a needle’s eye? This is hyperbole but we need to deal with the camel in the room, being a person’s greed. Dealing with perspective and balance.
WHAT’S RIGHT WITH RICHES? – Lesson 9
You can’t place a figure on what constitutes wealth. Sufficiency is what we need to pray for, having the wherewithal to support the kingdom, bless the needy and build a foundation for our families. Read Exo 36:6,7
WHAT’S RIGHT WITH RICHES? – Lesson 10
7 things I’ve learned about God and finance in my 40-year faith-journey. This series is about choosing the Kingdom-system of economics over the world system. There is a King of Salem and King of Sodom, choose.
WHAT’S RIGHT WITH RICHES? – Lesson 11
The biggest mountain most people need removed is the mountain of debt. To get out of debt, get out of doubt. This message parses five “S” words: Source, Sense, Stance, Strategy and Storehouse. Sound advice.
WHAT’S RIGHT WITH RICHES? – Lesson 12
More verses from Proverbs on finances, this time, things that guarantee to make a person go broke, loving pleasure, failing to heed reproof, chasing pie-in-the-sky fantasies, etc. You don’t want to be that guy!
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 2
Peter caught a fish with a silver coin in its mouth (Mat 17:27). There’s also a miracle in your mouth, if you can learn to harness the power of your words. “You trying to put words in my mouth?” Yes! Faith words.
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 3
Lady with stroke told me she had to teach herself to talk again. Many who think they can talk could use some speech therapy because they speak contrary to the Word. To refine your speech align it with the Word.
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 4
Five points on getting control of the tongue. Billy Sunday told lady with a long tongue, “There’s 18-feet of altar, lay it down…” You snared, scared, bared and impaired (but also spared) by the words of your mouth. “How forcible are right words!” (Job 6:25)
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 5
The devil fights with razor sharp words, we use the sword of the Spirit (Eph 6:17). Draw it from the scabbard of memory and start slashing your way to victory! Antichrist spirit is defeated by the sword of His mouth; you and me.
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 6
We eat from the garden of our words so don’t saying anything you don’t wish to digest. To start it, state it. To spark it, speak. Words are sparks that kindle fires, good or bad. Hear more advice today on taping it shut.
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 7
I talk to myself because I like to talk to intelligent people. What kind of dialogue goes on inside you? To go upwards you must speak up words. Small-talk is very big talk. The input decides the output, so talk faith.
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 8
This one might raise your dander a bit, walking through verses in Proverbs on sins of the tongue. “A backbiter is a backstabber who has temporarily misplaced his knife” (Tommy Tenney). Haha. Duct tape not included.
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 9
In Lesson 8 we looked at negative aspects of the tongue, from Proverbs; today, positive, wholesome, faith-building aspects of our words.
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 10
Proverbs 18:21 speaks of the power of the tongue. It can create, heal, ignite, build, battle and etc. Words are LEGO building blocks, for the Greek for “say” is “lego”. Sub to the subatomic is God’s word (Heb 1:3).
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 11
Faith is voice-activated (Mark Hankins). Nothing happens in the spiritual world until the word is given. A servant may say, “As you say, sir”. It is similar in the world of words. What you say is often what you get.
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 12
Today we walk word-by-word through Ecclesiastes 8:4. Christ is King, His followers are co-regents. The king’s word is law, so declaring God’s word releases power. Use the King’s Keys. Bind. Loose. Extend the scepter!
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 13
Look in the mirror day. Watch for the loud mouth, motormouth, potty mouth, etc. Prov 29:11 talks of venting feelings and letting the tongue fly. Peter needed his feet washed because they were always in his mouth.
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 14
Today we parse Proverbs 25:11 down into five points. Discover, the right word at the right time brings the right result. Words frame worlds. Words determine identity. So be selective on what you say and speak “in season”. Order “Give Yourself a Good Talking To” on the Bookstore page.
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 15
Zechariah opened his mouth in unbelief and was struck mute so he wouldn’t negate God’s purpose with his negative words. Zip it up or you can hang it up. Get your speech in line, you’ll be next in line – for a miracle.
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 16
Tell the stars, speak to the mountain, command the sun to stand still, tell a dead man to get up, the world thinks we are crazy on this one, but Jesus talked to inanimate things and so should we. Tell the mountain to go jump in a lake!
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 17
One man’s trash is another man’s…pleasure. Do you find pleasure in the misfortune of another? Trash is meant for the landfill, not the news or the church hallway. The worst trash talk is trashing yourself. More duct tape!
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 18
Faith verbalizes what it visualizes. God gives the decree in the word, we declare what is said and activate the promise by faith. Again, faith is voice-activated. Learn to prophesy over yourself. Tell it, spell it, sell it!
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 19
The Father invites backtalk (if it’s His word). Words are Heaven’s currency. “Take with you words, and turn to the Lord” (Hos 14:2). We need unction and passion but also diction. Angels are armed by God’s spoken word.
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 20
Little white lies cause colorblindness. Bend the truth and you’ll need a chiropractor. Stretch it and you can expect a snap-back. Does your version line up with the true version? Watch your mouth for any form of lying.
WATCH YOUR MOUTH! – Lesson 21
Wrapping up the series with 10 odds and ends thoughts. You may have to replay to get them anchored in your thinking. If “Watch Your Mouth!” has benefited you, I would sure like to know it. Like, comment, share!
IN MY JUDGMENT – Lesson 2
The proof of maturity is making sound, biblical, Spirit-led judgments. Knowing right from wrong is a judgment call. The PC crowd despises the JC crowd because we draw lines. Start with introspection – judge yourself.
IN MY JUDGMENT – Lesson 3
Today we look at 6 “P” words that warp sound judgment, prejudices, presets, preferences, etc. “Judge righteous judgment” (John 7:24). The natural man tends to skew the picture. Tweak the moral compass.
IN MY JUDGMENT – Lesson 4
Keep your nose out of it! But what if your gift is sniffing things out? Well, if you have a sensitive nose, don’t also have a talkative tongue. Not everything discerned needs divulged. Don’t use your instinct to raise a stink!
IN MY JUDGMENT – Lesson 5
If you must judge look for character, not charisma. Man looks on the external, God looks on the heart. We can’t see what He sees or know what He knows. Look for the best and you may not notice the worst.
IN MY JUDGMENT – Lesson 6
Saul said, “I forced myself” (1 Sam 13:12). The flesh will override the sound judgment of the spirit if you force the issue. This message asks 7 questions that define good judgment. Erring in any point guarantees failure.
IN MY JUDGMENT – Lesson 7
In this message we diagnose and use tweezers to remove a few “specks”. 1st, do you have an ophthalmology degree? 2nd, is there a beam in your own eye? 3rd, have lots of light before you poke into somebody’s business.
IN MY JUDGMENT – Lesson 9
In this message find instruction on how not to judge. Don’t judge by appearance, prematurely, by making unwise comparisons or without having all the facts, etc. Finger-pointing should always point to Jesus.
IN MY JUDGMENT – Lesson 10
Some decisions are already made for us, they are B/W commands from Scripture. But there are also gray areas not so easily defined. The Spirit teaches wisdom in such times. With His insight, you’ll get it right!
JUST THINKING – Lesson 2
Is a thought “just a thought”? If there are channels of thought, are you on the right channel? We eat from the garden of our thoughts so make sure you don’t plant anything for which you have a distaste.
JUST THINKING – Lesson 3
Identity precedes authority. You are who you think you are. Do you like you? If you don’t “think” you are somebody, no one will. Look in the mirror of the Word, think justly.
JUST THINKING – Lesson 4
The problem is not the brain but the mind that files the data. We inherited Adam’s brain damage, so we must adopt “the mind of Christ”. Be open-minded, but not so open that your brains fall out.
JUST THINKING – Lesson 5
Is it even possible to think too much? Sure – when analysis becomes paralysis, when thinking starts you sinking, when it makes your mind race without being able to rest. Thinking is to be paced.
JUST THINKING – Lesson 6
How did you think such a thing? You didn’t walk in the mind of Christ. Right thinking is sound, sane, sober, selective and scriptural thinking. Wash you brain in the water of the Word.
JUST THINKING – Lesson 7
You capture the thought, the thought captures you. So it is important what we entertain. You can’t act contrary to how you think. Lot “pitched his tent toward Sodom” then loaded up and moved there. Thought dictates direction.
JUST THINKING – Lesson 8
Some get lost in thought, it is “unfamiliar territory”. Today we balance between having a simple mind and being simpleminded. Instead of living with your head in the clouds, put your feet on the ground.
JUST THINKING – Lesson 9
The vision works on you then you work on the vision. I offer no bucket list but a to-do list, for success only comes to those who think they can then roll of their sleeves and work their faith. Seven steps to “I Got It”.
JUST THINKING – Lesson 10
Because we are still in the flesh, thoughts arise from the flesh that must be flushed out of our systems. Paul speaks of mind renewal. And of pulling down mental strongholds. From where do thoughts come?
JUST THINKING – Lesson 11
In Phil. 4:8 Paul lists eight positive areas on which to focus our thinking. Better to think on than to dwell on, for when you dwell on it isn’t long until you dwell in. A few points to pique your thought.
JUST THINKING – Lesson 12
Don’t think with your fist on your head, think with your feet on the pavement. Thinkers are on the move. Think like a man of action, act like a man of thought.
JUST THINKING – Lesson 13
The new birth is the only cure for man’s functional brain-dead, brain damage, for it offers “the mind of Christ” (1 Cor 2:16). Crucifixion occurs in the place of the skull, your personal Golgotha, the mind. Be renewed.
JUST THINKING – Lesson 14
Play and replay these twelve points until you have them memorized, they are a 5-minute college course on success. If you have enjoyed this series please let me know!
JUST THINKING – Lesson 15
Today we call in the thought police, conscience, the Word, the Holy Spirit, common sense, etc. Get control of what goes on “up there”. Level-headed thinking is clear-headed thinking. “Lord, clear the fog!”
JONAH – Lesson 2
Expounding on Jonah 1:1-2. Arise and go! We can do it the easy way or the hard way, you pick. Jonah can obey the call or he can spend a few days smelling fish guts. Either way the assignment must be fulfilled. Nineveh awaits.
JONAH – Lesson 3
Jonah went to the ticket booth and paid the fare for his Tarshish ship-ride. The downward trip always comes at a price. This series will help get you back on top, in the high calling, but the storm may come first, to turn the heart back toward home.
JONAH – Lesson 4
When the church snoozes, it loses. Jonah went to the hull of the ship and “snored” (Septuagint). He slept while others worked and slept while lives were in danger. How different, Jesus napping in the will of God than Jonah snoring outside the will of God.
JONAH – Lesson 5
When storms come, the natural tendency is to ask whose fault it is. But fault-finding is not problem-fixing. Get to the root of the matter, but don’t blame and shame, frame and aim! Let the storm aim you back in the direction of your calling.
JONAH – Lesson 6
Jonah said throw me overboard, instead the sailors “rowed hard to bring it to land”. You’ll never appease God by opposing God. Every attempt outside the will of God is hard rowing, fleshly struggle, the futility of utility. Someone has to walk the gang plank.
JONAH – Lesson 7
What you are going through is temporary (2 Cor 4:17). The whale is but for a while. Stay faithful, keep praising God and He will get you out. The fish got a tummy ache and spit the prophet out. The world can’t stomach holiness preachers!
JONAH – Lesson 8
Being swallowed by a “bottom feeder” was God’s mercy because Jonah needed an ocean liner to speed him back to his mission. A pit stop in the pit of a whale’s belly is your transition to great usefulness to God. Start confessing deliverance, not drowning.
JONAH – Lesson 9
Jonah was vomited onto the dry ground. You think your life stinks? Take a whiff of that! You don’t have to have everything perfect to get started, Jonah begins his prophet career in whale vomit and seaweed. If he got a 2nd chance, you surely can start again!
JONAH – Lesson 10
Jonah entered Nineveh with seaweed still in his beard. God uses the unorthodox! Learn seven truths about Jonah’s message, applicable to all preachers’ messages. Preach the word of God, the God of the word will promote you.
JONAH – Lesson 11
We need leadership from the top down. It happened in Nineveh, the king called the nation to fasting and prayer. A seaweed prophet and a sackcloth king. Gentile unbelievers went on a 40-day fast and suspended the horses of judgment mid-air.
JONAH – Lesson 12
Finally, Jonah wanted the city of Nineveh destroyed, just the opposite of Abraham wanting the city of Sodom saved. The gourd typifies inclusion of the Gentiles. He wasn’t using his gourd. The whale belly stunk, Jonah’s attitude smelled worse.
312 AZUSA STREET – Lesson 2
More keys on revival preparation from the Azusa Street outpouring, 1906. Is your church a “landing strip” for Jumbo Jet Jesus? Obstacles must be cleared, time must be afforded, walls must come down. Prepare!
312 AZUSA STREET – Lesson 3
Know your revival history. Great Awakenings are rude awakenings. Pray through. An automobile requires a motor, the motor of revival is prayer. Faith expects. So make accommodation for growth.
312 AZUSA STREET – Lesson 4
These 7 basic elements observed at Pentecost in Acts 2 are common to all moves of revival. Ravenhill said we need to get out of the supper room and back to the Upper Room. Get hungry, get in unity, get saturated!
312 AZUSA STREET – Lesson 5
If the devil can’t keep us out of the saddle he will give a shove so we fall off the other side. Whenever a new God thing occurs mistakes are made, because revival is new unknown territory. But don’t let abuse rob proper use.
312 AZUSA STREET – Lesson 6
All great reapers in public are great weepers in private. And good sweepers too because we have to sweep, what has been swept under the rug, out the door! Revival is not “have it your way”, only God’s way.
312 AZUSA STREET – Lesson 7
Saul Alinsky wrote “Rules for Radicals”, a devilish book, but I’m sharing rules for good radicals. To be biblical, be radical. That means being a God-Chaser, a seeker (Jer 29:13). And be willing to do the ridiculous to receive the miraculous.
312 AZUSA STREET – Lesson 8
Are you radical? Then you’re biblical and usable. Learn seven Krisms today on revival. Heaven needs some ushers who will usher in revival. If the Spirit grieves He leaves. Go longer, it will get stronger, etc.
312 AZUSA STREET – Lesson 9
A huge fire can start with a small match. God is looking for a remnant, a fuse, a matchstick. Little is much when God is in it. And remnant must join remnant until a spiritual power grid envelopes whole geographic regions.
312 AZUSA STREET – Lesson 10
Jesus confronted a principal spirit identified as “Legion”. We need to chase Legion from the region, clearing the heavenlies with the Prayer Force, the church’s Air Force. Territory must be seized by warfare prayer.
312 AZUSA STREET – Lesson 11
Jesus pioneered the way (John 1:51). The veil was rent to grant access. Religion may try to sew the veil shut but we can pry it open by praying it open. Learn key principles on how to live under an open spiritual sky.
312 AZUSA STREET – Lesson 12
Today, my personal experience under an open heaven in Pensacola, FL. The Azusa Revival and other moves are previews of what God wills for the whole globe in the Last Days – the spreading of the glory cloud.
312 AZUSA STREET – Lesson 13
Consider my list of things revival is not. It is not church growth though it leads to growth, it is not commercial though it evokes a spirit of giving, it is not hype though it gives great hope. Plus much more.
312 AZUSA STREET – Lesson 14
Last message on revival. Learn seven problems that hinder a move of God, prayer problem, pride problem, prejudice, etc. If you have been blessed this series we would love to hear a report. Send the fire, O Lord!
ELIJAH THE TISHBITE – Lesson 2
Elijah fled Ahab and hid out at the brook Cherith. He had great faith but did not presume to take on a whole army. He went under cover, but what miracle provisions! Ravens flew in sack lunches twice a day. There is provision for your vision.
ELIJAH THE TISHBITE – Lesson 3
Do not misinterpret me, most of the time you need to stay put for your faith is being tested “here”. But Elijah was commanded to go “there” (1 Kings 17:9). 6 points on knowing when it is time to move to “there”.
ELIJAH THE TISHBITE – Lesson 4
The Lord commanded a widow in Zeraphath to provide for Elijah. We would hope for the wealthy, instead God uses a widow. She gave the man of God “a little cake first”. Put the Kingdom first and the King will put you first.
ELIJAH THE TISHBITE – Lesson 5
Obadiah was Ahab’s chief of staff, yet being in a pagan system, he still rescued 100 prophets of the Lord. Elijah thought Obadiah was a sell-out when in fact he was an all-out. The system needs salt! In the system does not mean you’re of the system.
ELIJAH THE TISHBITE – Lesson 6
“Behold, Elijah is here!” (1 Kings 18:8) God moves us from there to get us “here”. “Here” is where the rubber meets the road. Elijah calls the false prophets to the summit of Carmel (not caramel). The showdown makes the devil back down.
ELIJAH THE TISHBITE – Lesson 7
You can’t remain neither/nor when Elijah demands a choice between either/or. Silence is golden, but staying mute in crisis is just plain yellow. The people sat there and wouldn’t decide. Get out of the undecided category.
ELIJAH THE TISHBITE – Lesson 8
Fire fall! We won’t get fired up until we’re fed up. Hear the Tishbite’s teasing taunts atop Carmel as he mocks Baal’s impotent prophets (I said Prov 4:9, meant 14:9). Rebuild the altar, and don’t fight fire, light Holy Ghost fire!
ELIJAH THE TISHBITE – Lesson 9
Elijah was of like passions as us, are we of like prayer as he? He “prayed again” (James 5:18,19), and again, until a little cloud the size of a man’s hand appeared in the heavens. Prayer affects the heavenlies. Revival is in the little clourd, and in the little crowd. Press on.
ELIJAH THE TISHBITE – Lesson 10
Those who rise the highest may sink the lowest. Elijah went from mountaintop to the dumps in a single day. He listened to the wrong voice and let his imagination run wild. Resist depression.Get back on the mountain!
ELIJAH THE TISHBITE – Lesson 11
Read 2 Chron 21:12-15, his letter to King Jehoram, short but not so sweet. I’d rather get a letter from the IRS than this prophet. Follow a prophet’s instruction and you won’t have to hear his correction. Yours truly, Elijah.
ELIJAH THE TISHBITE – Lesson 12
In 2 KIngs 1 Elijah is back calling fire down from heaven. Today, we call down the fire of love (Rom 12:20). But love sometimes necessitates a strict, strong, straight word. We have plenty of fame today, we need “flame”.
ELIJAH THE TISHBITE – Lesson 13
In 2 Kings Elijah leaves this world in a chariot of fire. He finished strong and “on fire”. But his success was in grooming a successor. We all leave something behind when we exit this life. Elijah left a mantle. What will you leave?
