What’d They Say Anyway? (ATP)

What’d They Say Anyway? (ATP) How do you know you’re really praying in the spirit and not just babbling out of your own flesh? This is a question that perhaps everyone who has ever been filled with the Holy Spirit has asked at some point. This is probably because most people assume that if it comes from the spirit, then it must…

Teased & Timid (ATP)

Teased & Timid (ATP) My question is: Have either of you ever been made fun of for standing on the Word of God? How do you handle the feelings of this? I am a timid person who does like confrontation however, I am not afraid to show my faith. Immediately, Matthew 5:11-12 comes to my heart, which says, “Blessed are you when they…

How Much is Too Blessed? (ATP)

How Much is Too Blessed? (ATP) As I lie in bed after Christmas where we opened so many gifts, mostly for our kids I really just feel overwhelmingly blessed and overwhelmed and sad. There’s just too much stuff. I don’t want it. I feel burdened by consumerism on Christmas-things and having to keep gifts. I appreciate it and many gifts are needed…

When In Rome… (ATP)

When In Rome… (ATP) What does this mean by “head covered”? 1 Corinthians 11:4-5: Any man who prays or prophesies (teaches, refutes, reproves, admonishes, and comforts) with his head covered dishonors his Head (Christ). And any woman who [publicly] prays or prophesies (teaches, refutes, reproves, admonishes, or comforts) when she is bareheaded dishonors her head (her husband); it is the same as…

 Humble Beginnings (ATP)

 Humble Beginnings (ATP) Is there any significance to Jesus being born in a stable? Zechariah 4:10 (NLT) Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.” Although to the best of my knowledge, we are not given specific reasons for a manger birth, I believe this along with…

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas John 3:16 (NKJV) For God so loved the world that He gave… I know, that’s not the whole scripture, is it? Some people may even call me a heretic for leaving off the rest of that verse. Just like those people trying to take Christ out of Christmas by saying Xmas, right? Well, that’s not exactly true and this is…

What He Wants Anyways (ATP)

What He Wants Anyways (ATP) Would you say the following statement is true? “Your level of faith determines the amount of sickness in your body (and how much it impacts you).” If this is true according to God’s word please load me up with scripture to support it! So here is a tricky question with an equally tricky answer. I say tricky…

Standing On The Word (ATP)

Standing On The Word (ATP) What do you do when the past tries to tug at you, trying to convince you to leave where you have been planted, to realize the truth of being planted? Romans 12:2 (NKJV), “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good…

The Gift That Keeps On Giving (ATP)

The Gift That Keeps On Giving (ATP) 1 Timothy 4:14 (NKJV), “Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.” Receiving such gifts with the laying on of hands will we know by the spirit what that gift is? Will we just walk into it?…

Faith Fix: Our Civic Responsibility

Faith Fix: Our Civic Responsibility This is what the Lord dealt with my heart several days before the upcoming (now current) election. It was spoken this Sunday in our church service. Here is the transcription. The burden to have the right people in authority is not as much about the church as it is the innocent who still need to know the…
