Faith & Doctrine

Faith & Doctrine
As instructed in John 16:13, interaction with the Spirit of truth is required in order to receive the revelatory truth of God that inspires genuine faith responses to the truth, promises, and commands of the Lord. What is presented herein is the fruit of obedience to this “guidance” and “confirmation” by the Spirit of truth.

Overcoming the Flesh: The Eternal Perspective

Do we want to hear, “Well done My good and faithful servant?”, or not. Knowing that even if we escape hell, we have basically failed to walk out His specific gifts and will for us in this life? The difference ENTIRELY DEPENDS on whether or not we have successfully overcome the influence of the flesh (the natural man apart from the presence of the Holy Spirit).


The Time Has Come

Paul's prophetic instructions to his disciple, Timothy, though they applied to Timothy's generation, are revealed to be specifically and prophetically related to the end times body of Christ who have been, are now, and will be powerfully impacted by whether or not we hear and respond to these instructions.


What Does It Take To Become a “Friend” of the Lord?

The answer may not be what you think, and those who qualify may not be whom you might expect to qualify... Those who are "friends of the Lord," are, in the Lord's own words, those who hear, understand, and obey His voice spoken into their hearts (spirit-mind connection) by the Spirit of truth.        What this produces, then, is the correct "rhema" understanding of the truth, covenant promises, and commands of the Lord resulting in the manifestation of acts of faith. Thus, it may be helpful to be trained in Hebrew and Greek, but no amount of intellectual training apart from "hearing" and "seeing" by the Spirit of truth will produce faith in our thoughts or our actions. It is, then, those who "hear" His truth, His covenant promises, and His commands" and, in intimate obedience, do what they hear by faith,  His "bondservants" and "friends."


All Things Whatsoever I have commanded you: An examination of the full measure of the “Great Commission”

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power…(authority)… is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore,…(in My authority)… and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe…(understand and obey)…all things whatsoever I have commanded you, and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world…(age)…. Amen.…Matthew 28:18-20 KJV (insert is the author’s)


The Mirror of the Word

Paul's explanation concerning how we are transformed from mere flesh upon receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is expanded in his description of how we are progressively transformed in this relationship as disciples and bondservants of the Lord as looking into a mirror and not seeing our own image, but the image of Christ as He begins to manifest in us and through us.



Those upon whom the fulfillment of the ages has come, have much to learn about faith and obedience from the Biblical account of David killing Goliath, and, as it is with much of the Old Testament, this event in David's life was not meant for him alone. It was also intended as a source of revelation for us, because there be GIANTS greater than Goliath set against the covenant people of the Lord today.



The most important truth we need to have is the absolute, immutable, revelatory (rhema) truth concerning God’s covenant relationship with an elect remnant of mankind in Christ. And the most dangerous lies we may believe are those lies that deny this truth.


Why Do We Believe What We Believe?

Our walk of faith, and even our understanding of prophetically revealed things to come, depends entirely on our ability to examine and understand WHY we believe what we believe about Christian doctrine, including prophetic doctrine, so that we will be enabled to cast off the deceptions, false presumptions, and false assumptions, and receive the truth as revealed by the Spirit of truth.


Why Zionism is the Most Dangerous Doctrine in all Christianity

Spiritual Zionism is the belief that Israel and the Jewish people are still the primary covenant intent of God, meaning that Christianity and the church (body of Christ) are a parenthetic in which Gentiles are included in the covenant redemption intended primarily for the Jewish people and the nation of Israel. Zionism is also the source doctrine of “Dispensationalism,” which is the belief that God has provided salvation for mankind through various covenants, not just the New Covenant. Zionism is, then, a denial that Israel was redeemed at the first advent of Jesus Christ, and that it is the second coming of Jesus Christ through which all Israel, meaning national, ethnic Israel will be redeemed. But that is not what multiple witnesses of Israel believed as was recorded in the New Testament.
