The Order of Worship
“When you come together…” (1 Cor. 14:26-40). This is the only “order of worship” in the New Testament. Sadly, very few churches follow these instructions from Paul. Instead of aligning ourselves with God's meaning that all things should be done decently and in order, we have developed our own boring concept of orderly worship. God is never boring!  Rather than simply ...Full Story

The Fallout From Sin
Many people shrug their shoulders at the contention that they are sinners, saying they have never really committed any serious sin or wrongdoing. They have been, according to their own understanding, good moral people – good citizens. They have paid their taxes, have never been in trouble with the law, take pride in being good neighbours and are generally nice people. They have never been ...Full Story
Does the Baptism of the Holy Spirit Happen at the Time of Salvation?
Today many believers have been told they received the Holy Spirit when they believed – but that is not necessarily true. They mistake the cleansing experience of Salvation (John 1:9) for the infilling or baptism of the Holy Spirit. Unfortunately, most churches teach (misleadingly) that people receive the Holy Spirit when they ask Jesus to forgive their sin and give them salvation. In our ...Full Story
Is Tithing for Today?
No matter where I travel, I am constantly asked, "Do we have to tithe 10% of our income to the Lord’? I have discovered that people who are spiritually blind and in rebellion to what Jesus wants, are always trying to find a way to cheat God. Yes, tithing is in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. It is carried over from the original Melchizedek (King of Righteousness) included in ...Full Story

A Right Relationship with God
"Ho, every one who thirst, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! (Isaiah 55:1-13) There are some things money can't buy; there is a thirst that ordinary water, wine, milk, coffee or tea can't quench; and there is a hunger that meat and bread can't satisfy. That hunger and thirst is for "righteousness". Righteousness is the innate desire for a right ...Full Story

How to get Loved Ones Saved
The goal to getting a spouse, loved one, family member or friend saved (Rom. 10:9) is not to force them to church, but to get them introduced to Jesus Christ personally. The goal is to: "sanctify her (him), having cleansed her (him) by the washing of water with the Word" (Ephesians 5:26).  This does not mean to force the unbeliever to read the Bible; this does not mean to force anyone to ...Full Story

Do we really have Free Will?
Many people still want to believe that God has given us all free will and that we have no right to pursue and pressure people into the Kingdom of Heaven. However, the Apostle Paul tossed out the mythical idea of "free will".  We have no real free will to choose between good and evil until Jesus saves us and baptizes us with the Holy Spirit. "Jesus answered him, Truly, truly, I say to you, ...Full Story

Jesus Healed My Heart
Once at "H.I.S Ministries” in Millet, Alberta, a man in his 60’s explained that he had suffered a heart attack and his heart was unstable so he needed prayer for healing. I asked him if he had received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit yet and he said he had not. I explained to him how he needed to be baptized with the Holy Spirit so that Jesus could show him His plan for his life. And ...Full Story
The Holy Spirit in the Trinity
As one of my seminary professors at Princeton Theological Seminary used to remind us over and over again: “the Heavenly Father is God over us; Jesus Christ is God who walks alongside of us, and the Holy Spirit is God who comes and dwells inside of us.” The Holy Spirit is God’s Spirit and Jesus’ Spirit. How unfortunate that He is a stranger to most Christians. We need to take the time to ...Full Story
Did I or Didn't I Receive the Holy Spirit?
Once at a Pentecostal church in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, a man in his 40's explained to me, “I just finished taking the Alpha Course. I was told that I received the Holy Spirit at the end of it when some people prayed with me. I don’t feel any different. Did I or didn’t I receive the Holy Spirit?” I asked him, “Did you speak in tongues?” “No! I was told that it was not necessary, ...Full Story
Generational Sins or Curses No Longer Exist
"Generational Curses" or "Generational Sin" basically means passing the blame for our sin to our forefathers. This was one of the frightening realities of the Old Testament Covenant that God made with Israel. It received its authority from the second Commandment. This meant there were immediate consequences upon those who broke God's commandments but there were also future considerations in ...Full Story
