IT'S A GREAT DAY TO EXPAND GOD'S KINGDOM

IT’S A GREAT DAY TO EXPAND GOD’S KINGDOM

By David Warn | November 28, 2018 | 0 Comments

I have two ambitions in life: to warn the body of Christ about activities that are being embraced in our culture that are proven to provoke God’s judgment, and to see the body of Christ experience dramatically more fruit. Everything I do revolves around this two-fold mission . . . and I love it!  …

SHOULD POLITICS MATTER TO CHRISTIANS?

By forerunner | October 24, 2018 | 0 Comments

Leadership matters to God! In the Bible, when God wanted to speak to a nation, to direct its course, to call it to repentance, or even to announce judgment upon it, who did He talk to?  Who did He send the prophets to confront? That’s right — the kings. The leaders. And the way the leaders went, the people mostly followed, at least for a generation.

MONEY IN A TIME OF CRISIS (PART THREE): STOCKS

Some years ago, through a friend’s pass to the New York Stock Exchange floor, I found myself sharing the gospel with a seasoned trader. Before discussing eternal things, he stated that the markets are largely psychological: they react negatively to bad news and surprises but often perform wonderfully during seasons of stability.   Based on…

MONEY IN A TIME OF CRISIS (PART TWO): COMMODITIES

To invest in commodities is to invest in a specific item such as grain, precious metals, oil, coffee, natural gas, or orange juice. Rather than putting one’s cash under the mattress, in the bank, or buying stock in the future of a company, are we better off investing in commodities during times of crisis? Put another way, are commodities the refuge that we seek?   At the…

MONEY IN A TIME OF CRISIS—PART ONE

We long for financial security through stocks, bonds, commodities, real estate, savings accounts, and precious metals. But pursuing the accumulation of wealth through each of these means does not provide the certain guarantee that God does. Financial investment for most people will be a fruitful endeavor in seasons of prosperity, but most likely not during…

BUT WHAT SHOULD I DO?

In my last post, I warned that something sudden could happen to our nation. As I have read the Scriptures related to nations and sought the LORD, I believe this is a real possibility.   The frequent response to such a warning is, “What should I do to prepare?” You can find my answer to…

WHAT IF…

On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon BP oil rig explosion took place in the Gulf of Mexico. Soon eleven workers were confirmed dead, 115 were rescued, the 500 million dollar oil rig disintegrated into the water, and 8,000 barrels of crude oil a day began pouring into the Gulf. All of this happened within…

LOCAL ACTION REQUIRED

As someone who focuses on national topics, I also realize that I need to engage locally. Not only am I referring to sharing my faith, but also the need to stand firm in the public square on all kinds of issues.   Like me, you may find yourself  concerned by  various  national trends, federal policies and laws, and countless alarming activities taking place from coast to coast. But locally—wow—did I have a wake-up call of…

TWO PRAYERS FOR 2017—PART 2

For the last 18 months, presidential primaries, campaigns, debates, the election, and finally the inauguration dominated the news. This is why I posted my last blog that included a prayer focused on the presidency and our government. Now, let’s turn to an equally important topic:  “We the people.”   Whenever “we the people” ask our…

TWO PRAYERS FOR 2017

In a matter of hours Donald J. Trump will take the oath of office and become the 45th president of the United States. It cannot be emphasized enough that leadership at every level of government matters; indeed, government is God’s instrument to maintain law and order and to carry out His purposes (Rom. 13:1-7). I…

GOOD NEWS

When we think of God judging a nation or the entire world, we often feel troubled in our spirits. And in part, this response is good and right. The Scriptures teach that we should tremble at His Word and at what may come upon any wayward, rebellious nation (Isa. 66:1-2; Jer. 18:7-10).   In America…

SPIRITUAL PREPARATION-PART THREE

Last February, I went on extended fast. I did not have a specific purpose, other than wanting to be closer to the Lord.   And the Lord did bring me closer. By the last two weeks, He was speaking to my heart almost daily, through His Word and through His still small voice on one…
