The Hybrid Church Model

January 19, 2022

If your movement is not moving, then it is not a movement; but could be a monument. There are cycles to movements and usually movements overtime become the opposite of what they started out to be. There are cyles in movements. The first generation, generates. The second generation, motivates. The third generation, speculates. The fourth generation, dissipates. History is replete with conservatism giving way to liberalism and light giving way to dark. It is not that the darkness has become stronger, but the light has become weaker. This is one of the major reasons, if not the major reason why the Great Commission has not been completed. Instead of the Church remaining as the thermostat, over time, it becomes a thermometer. Instead of regulating temperature, it only reflects temperature. For example, when I reflect over the spiritual temperature of the United States, the Church by in large stopped regulating Spiritual temperature a long time ago. It seems that so many are more interested in winning elections than winning souls. The more souls who are won to Christ, the spiritual temperature would rise and society would be transformed. So, what is the answer? The only way out of decline is an…

The 10 Qualities Of Plandemic Leadership

January 14, 2022

I have been seriously pondering this global shift that has overtaken the earth in a few short months of time. We have become very comfortable with hearing the word “pandemic.” In the beginning, it was more of a shock and unrealistic. Today, it’s becoming more of a lifestyle. I’ve been thinking about what are the leadership differences between pandemic leadership and plandemic leadership I believe that really, in a nutshell, plandemic leadership summarizes how we’re going to move through this pandemic and get on with life, ministry, and the fulfillment of the Great Commission. With this in mind, I want to lay some thoughts upon your heart, to stir you to action. I pray that the Holy Spirit deposits these thoughts down deep into your soul, into your congregation, into your staff, or your friends. I believe there are some distinct differences between pandemic leadership and plandemic leadership. First, when it comes to pandemic leadership, he or she panics and prays. But the plandemic leader pauses, prays, and plans. At the beginning, this may seem like a subtle difference, but it’s a huge difference because this leader chooses to move with a plan. The other leader is more reactionary, anxious,…

The Sin of Procrastination: Acts Series #39

January 13, 2022

Do you have trouble with procrastination? I know I do and, starting tomorrow, I’m going do something about it. I believe everyone is plagued with some form of procrastination, but some people have a form of procrastination that is actually harming them. Here are five questions to find out whether or not we are procrastinators. First, do you always hand in work at the deadline, or later, but never early? Second, do you postpone starting a diet until some set time in the future, a time that keeps changing? Third, do you use fatigue or a headache for a reason for not getting things done? Fourth, do you clutter up your daily schedule with little things so that you don’t have time to do the big important thing that you’re trying to avoid? Last, do you delay in seeing a doctor about symptoms because you hope they’ll go away? Procrastination is more than the thief of time. It is the grave of opportunity, and it may be the road to Hell. It is God’s will for everyone to be saved and to know Jesus Christ. We want them to be saved, but even those who are unsaved, many of them…

How to Overcome Criticism: Acts Series #38

January 4, 2022

If we practice the normal Christian life, we are going to have normal persecution. Did you know this? If you don’t know it, you’d better learn it. This chapter will help us to know How to Cope with Criticism. Not just any criticism, but criticism that we will receive if we stand for the Lord Jesus Christ. Are you enduring criticism for Christ? If not, don’t pat yourself on the back, for the Bible says, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12). There’s no way in this world of once-born men can you be a twice-born man or woman and survive without being criticized. You cannot live godly in this kind of a world without being criticized. The Lord Jesus said, “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you”—Not “if,” but—“when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in heaven…” (Matthew 5:11– 12). Now, it must be false and it must be for His sake. Some of us get criticized for things we really deserve to be criticized…

Nighttime Promises for 2022

December 28, 2021

I have always enjoyed sunset times. I like the daytime, too, of course. I love the beautiful sunshine, the flowers, the trees, the birds, the leaves and all of the sights and the sounds of the daytime. However, there always been something special to me about sunset time when part of nature is going to sleep. In the nighttime many decisions are made. Sometimes the nighttime is a difficult time. Sometimes we wrestle with things in the nighttime and it’s not easy. Maybe the load of grief you’ve been going through for a period of time now seems to get heavier during the nighttime hours. Maybe the feeling of loneliness overwhelms you more at night than at any other time of the day. So, the nighttime can be a difficult time. Of course, you also know that the nighttime can be a delightful time because many times through the difficulties and the decision making of the nighttime, it becomes a time when we have a fresh encounter with the Lord. The Lord comes into our experience and speaks to our hearts in a very special and a personal way. In a nighttime experience the Lord came to Paul. What we…

The Evidences of A Saved Life: Acts Series #37

December 22, 2021

From the 21st chapter of Acts on to the conclusion, we have the series of circumstances which brought the Apostle Paul from the city of Jerusalem to the city of Rome. Paul had a great desire to go to Rome. The Lord made it possible for him to do so. When Paul came to Jerusalem, some of the Believers pointed out to him that some were accusing him of violating the Old Testament law and teaching contrary to the Old Testament Scriptures. So, they have asked him to be part of a special ceremony along with some other men. When some of the enemies of the Gospel saw him in the temple, they made a false accusation that he had brought Gentiles into the temple which was a taboo. Thus, they grabbed Paul and started beating him and were planning to kill him. The Roman soldiers, from Antonio’s fortress in Jerusalem, had come and rescued Paul from those who were trying to kill him. As he was going up the steps, he asked if he could speak to the people. Keep in mind this was a hostile mob. This is a religious crowd. No people can be any more unkind…

The Ultimate Satisfaction: Acts Series #36

December 14, 2021

The Lord Jesus said on one occasion, “Not my will, but thine be done.” The friends of the Apostle Paul said to him, “the will of the Lord be done.” I wonder if you can say from the very depths of your being and really mean it in your soul—“I want God’s will to be done for my life.” The Apostle Paul is convinced in his heart that the will of God for Him is to go to the city of Jerusalem. As he makes his journey toward Jerusalem, his friends and those who love him the most have come to understand by the Holy Spirit that Paul is going to face persecution and suffering if he goes to the city of Jerusalem. So, they are troubled by it and tell Paul not to go. It’s very similar to what happened to the Lord Jesus and His disciples. Along the way, Jesus talked about going up to Jerusalem and he said that He would go up there and be crucified. When his disciples heard that, of course, they loved him so much, this was troubling to them, and it didn’t fit into their plans for the Lord. So, they began…

Watch Out for the Wolves: Acts Series #35

December 7, 2021

We have now come to part of Apostle Paul’s farewell address to the elders of the church of Ephesus. It is apparent when you read these words that the Apostle Paul dearly loved the church of the Lord. In fact, he refers to it in his message as the Church of God. Also, Paul refers to it with the term of endearment—the flock. He hadn’t always loved the church. Before his conversion, he hated the church. He did everything he knew to stifle the church and to stamp it out. He even went on a trip to Damascus to find some people who were part of the Church to persecute them and put them to death. Can you even imagine a person hating Christians so much, he would gladly have them killed? Then, Paul had that magnificent experience on the Damascus Road when he came face to face with the living Lord Jesus Christ who is the head of the Church. God put in the heart of this man who used to hate the Church, a great love for the Church. Do you love the whole Church or just the part you grew up in or came to know Christ…
