Eat This Scroll

Are you listless when it comes to the things of God? Have you tried everything but can’t seem to find what the root problem is? Are you experiencing a growing appetite for the things of the world? The things you stopped doing as you got to know the Lord more, do you find yourself attracted to them all over again? Are you in the habit of finding excuses to support this attitude and even find excuses to love them as Solomon did with his many foreign wives including the daughter of Pharaoh? Friend, there is a problem! Open your heart and allow the Lord to walk you through this. It is expected of us to increase in the things of God and decrease toward the things of the world. It is not about confessing the Word but by putting into action the Word we confess. To put it into action successfully is to constantly feed on the undiluted Word of God. As we feed daily on physical foods we see results in our physical bodies. When the wrong foods are eaten, we equally see adverse results. Same goes…

Do You Know Bailey's Jesus? - Ginger Tucker

God recently allowed me to see Jesus through the eyes of someone seeing Him for the first time. Having the advantage of knowing how the story ends, we can easily forget the cost of our redemption and the love of our Savior. Every year we attend a local church pageant at Christmas time, which tells the story of Jesus from His birth through His resurrection. It is a spectacular event, with live animals and hundreds of cast members in realistic costumes. The magi enter the huge auditorium on llamas from the rear, descending the steps in pomp and majesty. Roman soldiers look huge and menacing in their costumes and make-up.
Of all the years we have attended, one stands out indelibly in my heart… It was the year we took our then three-year-old granddaughter, Bailey, who loves Jesus. She was mesmerized throughout the entire play, not just watching, but involved as if she were a player. She watches as Joseph and Mary travel to the Inn and is thrilled when she sees the baby Jesus in His mother&…

Time To Truly Live!

Friend, it is time to go to the next level in God. The time to truly live in the God-giving potentials you carry on the inside. You might say you have heard this before in fact you have become disillusioned in hearing this as nothing had happened since the Lord spoke to you. The good news is, if you are experiencing this pain it is not for you to despair because there is a solution only if you will listen to the instruction and carry it out. Every promise of God carries with it an instruction which must be obeyed for the promises to come to pass. God has a process of bringing His sons to the next level in Him and there are no shortcuts. When it was time for the Lord Jesus Christ to go into the next level in His Ministry on earth, He didn’t go through any shortcut but followed the process. In John 12:20-36, the Bible says some Greeks wanted to see Him. This should have made Him glad and excited as He was going to be recognized internationally. But He declared something that was strange…

Walking Contradictions!

You serve the Lord, there’s no question about that! But do you truly believe the things you have come to know about Him? Is there a conflict within you with what you have heard or learned about Him? However, so you would not be labeled an unbeliever you pretend to believe? There are so many contradictory children of God: they act one way outwardly but inside of them they do not believe what they are saying or doing! The Lord calls them false prophets on the outside but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. Why? Because they are walking contradictions! The Bible talked about a king of Judah called Josiah who started His rule at the age of seven in 2 Chronicles 24. The Bible recorded in verse 2 of that chapter: “throughout the time of Jehoida the Priest, Joash did what was right in the Lord’s sight.” As long as the Priest lived, king Joash followed the Lord, but at the demise of the Priest, he fell away so fast that he did not only plunge the kingdom into apostasy but equally killed the so…
