Radical Christianity


In my lifetime I’ve seen some Christians do some radical things, some good some bad, but never be fearful of radically following Jesus, he loves the unloved and the unloveable, he heals the worthy and the unworthy, he radically loves and follows Yahweh and His word, he was scandalous, he ignored man made religion to honor God.
Truly following Jesus is the most radical thing you can do as a Christian, it cannot be accomplished by way of striving performance or gaining influence it will only be accomplished by radical intimacy and obedience to the father. A lot of Christians I know struggle with the fact of their identity as a child of God, but know this.

“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”
‭‭John‬ ‭1:12‬ ‭KJV‬‬

The fire of our hands or the fire in our hearts?


We pride ourselves in our ideas, our ideals, our religion, our gods, our science, our establishments, our accomplishments,,, only to set it all on fire?

The following is a story about how when the gospel really comes into culture it renders the things we have established as useless and starts to rebuild hearts and thought processes around kingdom.

“About that time, serious trouble developed in Ephesus concerning the Way. It began with Demetrius, a silversmith who had a large business manufacturing silver shrines of the Greek goddess Artemis. He kept many craftsmen busy. He called them together, along with others employed in similar trades, and addressed them as follows: “Gentlemen, you know that our wealth comes from this business. But as you have seen and heard, this man Paul has persuaded many people that handmade gods aren’t really gods at all. And he’s done this not only here in Ephesus but throughout the entire province! Of course, I’m not just talking about the loss of public respect for our business. I’m also concerned that the temple of the great goddess Artemis will lose its influence and that Artemis—this magnificent goddess worshiped throughout the province of Asia and all around the world—will be robbed of her great prestige!” At this their anger boiled, and they began shouting, “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!” Soon the whole city was filled with confusion. Everyone rushed to the amphitheater, dragging along Gaius and Aristarchus, who were Paul’s traveling companions from Macedonia. Paul wanted to go in, too, but the believers wouldn’t let him. Some of the officials of the province, friends of Paul, also sent a message to him, begging him not to risk his life by entering the amphitheater. Inside, the people were all shouting, some one thing and some another. Everything was in confusion. In fact, most of them didn’t even know why they were there.”

‭‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭19:23-32‬ ‭NLT‬‬

So a mass group of hostile people (some of them not even knowing why they were there) are mad, sound familiar?

Things haven’t changed much since the days Jesus walked through earth, as a matter of fact they haven’t changed at all, we live in a time where people filled with the pride of their own knowledge want their way right away, they are spiritually dead and only follow their own logic and instincts, but when the gospel comes to town things are changed, people experience Holy Spirit.

The god Artemis lost its influence because people had a real encounter with the gospel of Jesus Christ, and people were angry because it affected their livelihood, they had built a culture around this false idea and it was decimated when the truth showed up.

So people were angry and a mob ensued, people wanted their money and jobs back, people didn’t like this invisible God ruining their culture they had become so proud of.

“The Jews in the crowd pushed Alexander forward and told him to explain the situation. He motioned for silence and tried to speak. But when the crowd realized he was a Jew, they started shouting again and kept it up for about two hours: “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians! Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!” At last the mayor was able to quiet them down enough to speak. “Citizens of Ephesus,” he said. “Everyone knows that Ephesus is the official guardian of the temple of the great Artemis, whose image fell down to us from heaven. Since this is an undeniable fact, you should stay calm and not do anything rash. You have brought these men here, but they have stolen nothing from the temple and have not spoken against our goddess. “If Demetrius and the craftsmen have a case against them, the courts are in session and the officials can hear the case at once. Let them make formal charges. And if there are complaints about other matters, they can be settled in a legal assembly. I am afraid we are in danger of being charged with rioting by the Roman government, since there is no cause for all this commotion. And if Rome demands an explanation, we won’t know what to say.” Then he dismissed them, and they dispersed.”

‭‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭19:33-41‬ ‭NLT‬‬

There are riots there are talks of insurrections but there is one gospel and the gospel of our lord Jesus Christ is changing the world, the kingdom is being established, the way is a movement that is still changing culture today and challenging the world view, be encouraged in these days! We are part of something that is far bigger and more powerful than we could ever imagine and it is shining a light into the darkness permeating the very finer of all that man has established apart from God.

“When the uproar was over, Paul sent for the believers and encouraged them. Then he said good-bye and left for Macedonia.”

‭‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭20:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The End Of The World


The second coming of Christ.

I’ll never forget when I first gave my heart to Jesus when I was 10, it was an exciting time! I had Jesus in my heart I had been saved, so in my excitement I began to study the Bible like really read it for the first time in my life… my parents had bought me a NKJV Bible and as I had heard a whole lot about being saved and your typical Bible stories, Samson, David and Goliath etc. I hadn’t heard much else so in flipping through the Bible I saw Revelation, I was like ok it’s the end of the book let’s see what happens. So I began to read and about 7-8 chapters in I realized that yes this is the end… IT IS THE END OF EVERYTHING! I know and understand, the end of the world. So I was legitimately afraid. My mom had a desk in her bedroom that she used to sit at to put on her makeup (I was probably 12) I had crawled under that desk because I truly felt like the world was falling down around me and clutched my Bible, so what now? “I’ll call my dad!” My parents had been divorced for a couple of years at this point and I looked looked up to my dad because he was an former preacher who had went to Billy Graham’s Fruitland Bible college, I thought “he’ll make sense of this.” Thankfully the corded phone reached down to where I was sitting under the desk and I called my dad, who sadly brought no resolve to my revelation of the end of the world… so I read and I read Revelation trying to make sense of this trying to find a foothold in this being something good, I probably read it 8-10 times not really grasping it in my young new Christian mind, so I accepted that (this is scary and I don’t totally understand) and I’ve seen a lot of spiritual leaders use it as a scare tactics which didn’t help my situation. So here I am 38 years later and writing this blog, why? Because Yahweh has started to reveal to me that yes Revelation is the end, but only the end of Satan and his followers, it is our victory!

  The kingdom is being established and the church is flourishing and is becoming mighty in the power of Jesus, more than the world has ever experienced since Christ was here and is accelerating into a place of dominion like we’ve never seen before as a family of believers. As this happens Babylon is going to try to rise against us as a church and will ultimately be decimated by fierce warrior Christ. Sure there will be persecution there will be push back but they will not be able to stand against the sons of God, Revelation is the final act of rebellion of evil against God and his sons and we will be triumphant, God wins, we win.

   So some of you may be thinking where did you get all this? -from Yahweh, reading Revelation, Daniel and Ezekiel brought much insight to Revelation among just reading the Bible through the years. The perspective isn’t about the end of the world, it’s about our ultimate and final victory, in days of old God’s armies declared their victory before they even started fighting through music and worship, that is a posture that Gods people need to stay in, to live in and dwell in perpetual victory, why? Because Yahweh the ultimate creator and power of the universe has declared it!

People are afraid, more fearful now than ever, and rightly so… if your not sure where you stand with Yahweh your standing against Him and you have every right to be afraid because He is a fierce holy and scary God and you want to be on His side…this was said of Jesus being the cornerstone of our faith, “Everyone who falls in humility upon that stone will be broken. But if that stone falls on you, it will grind you to pieces!””

‭‭Luke‬ ‭20:18‬ ‭TPT‬‬

  God loves you! He is so madly in love with you! Everyone has a seat at his table (through Jesus) no one is rejected or turned away you can come and sit in victory today.

Who goes there?

Who lives in you? Is it an idea? An ideal? A comfortable religious system?

The potency of the things Jesus did while he was here were born in deep intimacy and worship with the father. A lot of us fear it because we will have to take responsibility and authority over the things that (seem) to have a death grip in our lives, the lives of those we love and in our culture…. sickness, depression, fear, anxiety, division, anger, jealousy, lust, racism, slander, pride, selfish ambition, hate.

Just because we have been born into bondage don’t mean that we have to accept that our slavery is common and the norm, because of Jesus and our birthright through him we can have freedom.

We are at war with a BB gun against a formidable opponent because we haven’t been taught that we are the sons of God, that we carry the same power that Jesus carries, that Yahweh loves us as much as he loves his only son Jesus, and as we learn to rest in Him and what He has done for us (his finished work on the cross) we start to see that He is our champion, He is the one who fights for us and there is nothing anyone or anything can do to separate us from his love.

National Socialism


Today let’s remember historical events that no one wants to think about, why? because we should never forget how people became capable of unthinkable atrocities.

Nazism- Oooh scary word, is actually just the innocent sounding National Socialism, a term being thrown around quite a bit these days and there is a rising surge in socialist thinking popularity, sure it’s the easy way, establish a bunch of leaders that you think have your best interest in mind and and lay back while they take care of everything for you, this is the death of a republic, a free state where the people have control, I mean do you actually think Every German wanted to kill the Jews? Of course not but when your being fed during famine and world war what are you gonna do? There was even a coup d’etat of powerful leaders in Germany to try to dispose of Hitler and his tyranny.

Today we live in a free country, sure I grasp the reality that our culture is changing fast and it seems like sometimes we are loosing our rights and a lot of people are afraid. True revolution starts with you in your home, love God, love your family, love your neighbors, love your enemies, it will change the world, why? you say, because Jesus said it… sure we need to vote exercise our freedoms and rights as Americans but we are already having to choose the lesser of evils and that seems to be getting harder as I get older, as for me I’m putting my faith in God and what Jesus said… it has changed the world, it has changed me.

To hear and do

I’ve spent a lot of time
thinking I have something
to understand
And say for God,
But he has said it all.
Jesus Christ not only
understood the word,
He did the word.
“That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭4:16-18‬ ‭NLT‬‬
