The Crisis That Isn’t A Crisis – End Times Christian Article

US Force departs Syria for Iraq 21 October 2019: For two weeks Eschatology Today kept its keyboard idle while the rest of the world couldn’t stand to wait to see what would come to pass and instead passed judgment from the instant the U.S. military withdrawal from northeastern Syria was announced by President Trump. And all of that judgment, including some from very prominent Christian leaders, was absolutely wrong. To his credit, Pastor Graham, reversed his earlier position to one…

Should we hold youth meetings in church buildings? – Youth Work Hacks – Youth Ministry Christian Article

Historic church buildings are an important British heritage, and a legacy of the established church of Christendom. But are they the best place for a youth event? When Millennials were the young people of the day, the answer would almost certainly have been no. The arguably masculine authoritarian architecture mixed with the over-spilling soreness of growing up with GenX and Baby Boomer parents who were made to go to church by their parents have been a dead turnoff for many.…

Teach Your Children to Pray – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

Begin early to establish prayer in your children about big and little things. Dr Charles Stanley said, “The reason we should teach little children to pray about the little insignificant things (but significant to them) very early in life, is so they learn that if they talk to God, He will answer their prayers.” The more they see and hear you pray, the more it will become a part of their lives. As you point out answers to prayer, the…

Who Would Invent the Story of Women at the Tomb?? – The Bart Ehrman Blog – Christian Article

Who in the ancient world would ever try to *prove* the resurrection by making up a story that women, in particular, discovered Jesus’ empty tomb?   Weren’t women seen as complete unreliable witnesses?  Their testimony never even accepted in a court of law?  If someone want to prove that Jesus had been raised — and that therefore the tomb was empty — they would have invented *men* at the tomb (reliable witnesses) rather than *women* (untrustworthy).  Right? I’ve been asked this…

What was your first reaction to hearing the Gospel? – End Times Christian Article

By Elizabeth Prata The reactions of the different people in the Bible to hearing the Word of the Lord are wide and varied. Abraham, upon hearing that in his old age he will father a child: he fell on his face and laughed in delight. (Genesis 17:17). Sarai: upon hearing she will bear a child in her old age: laughed in herself, scoffing. (Genesis 18:12) Zechariah was told he will bear a child in his old age, the forerunner to the…

A Miracle At Rethink Leadership – Home – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

As Christians, we sometimes over-spiritualize everything. However, God is at work in our day to day lives. So, there some things that happen that truly are divinely appointed.

At that point, I was in the process of working towards planting a church. I had blogged for the Orange Conference for a few years and thought my change…

We Don’t Always Want What We Want | Lifestream – Christian Article

I am traveling through the south of Florida at the moment, having spent the weekend in Miami, and now headed up to the Sarasota/Tampa area for the weekend. Yesterday, I had an amazing lunch conversation reconnecting with someone I’d visited several years ago. He’d come here to plant house churches and ended up discovering that the church was more wild and wonderful than that could contain as well. He, too, is learning that life moves at the speed of relationships. While…

Why do we need to keep on confessing our sins? – Christian Article

Churches struggle with what to call the thing that we do every Sunday morning.  The thing that is officially called Holy Communion.  Most churches call it ‘worship’ or a ‘service’ or simply something like ‘the 11 o’clock.’ So what is Communion? Well, I would say that Communion is essentially a gathering together – to celebrate the good news that we are loved and forgiven and we are all brothers and sisters in God’s family. The words ‘Communion’ or ‘service’ or…

All Eyes on 10/30 to 11/3, 2019 *Updated 2x* – End Times Christian Article

There are a lot of synchronicities, signals, and predictive programming pointing to the time period from 10/30 to 11/3 of a future year. Some of those are pointing to 10/30 to 11/3 of this year, and from what I am seeing this time period has great potential for the occurrence of major events. Here is the data. The $100 Bill USA money has been encoded with information which has included the Pentagon attack and the 911 attack. The new $100 dollar…

Bible Drive-Thru: A Heavenly Sight – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

TODAY’S SPECIAL: Revelation 4:1-11 TO CHEW ON: “Day and night they never stop saying, ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.’” Revelation 4:8 Have you ever seen an angel? Have you seen Jesus? God? Heaven? Most of us haven’t. But God gave John a peek inside heaven. As we read his description, we get the feeling heaven is so incredibly magnificent, John had a hard time finding words to describe it.…

Christian Discipleship: Responding to the Word – Christian Article

By John R. W. Stott The concept of divine revelation, and of our need to submit to it, is both eminently reasonable and practically wholesome. It is reason­able because it acknowledges that the infinite God is altogether beyond his finite creatures, and that we could never have known him if he had not taken the initiative to make himself known. It is also wholesome because submission to God’s self-revelation in Christ and in the full biblical witness to Christ, far…

Chicken Fried Steak for Memory’s Sake – Christian Article

1 Timothy 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.  Some time after the funeral home had escorted Dad away, I told my husband I needed to go eat, because my stomach was sick, which probably had more to do with all the events of my dad’s passing than it had to…

Freedom from Anxiety | Devotional by Charles Stanley – Christian Article

Read: Judges 6:1-16 Anyone who’s struggled with fear and anxiety understands the difficulty of overcoming these emotions. Gideon was a man who experienced great apprehension because he lived when Israel was being oppressed by the Midianites as a result of their rebellion against God. Conditions had become so desperate that Gideon was threshing grain in a wine press so the enemy wouldn’t think to steal it. It was at this low point in his life that the angel of the…

The Importance of Priority in Ministry: Self-Care – Christian Article

Every 3,000 – 5,000 miles.  Can you guess what is supposed to happen during the mileage mentioned? My vehicle is supposed to receive an oil change.

There is also a sticker in the top left corner of my windshield stating the exact mileage an oil change is recommended. An oil change is important for the life of a vehicle…

Next Generation Weapons and the New World Order – End Times Christian Article

In World War I, generals who studied Napoleon sent waves of troops into a barrage of machine gun fire. The rapid-fire weapons mowed down thousands in minutes. Was this necessary? No. Thousands of young men died all because their commanders focused on fighting the last war. They didn’t adjust to new developments and new technologies. In World War II, the Polish army defended itself from…

2019 Youth Pastor Compensation Report – Youth Ministry Christian Article

In my experience there are two big factors that drive people out of professional youth ministry. Burnout – We are a tribe that works too hard, for too many hours, for too long, and forgets to take care of ourselves. One of the things my co-laborer at The Youth Cartel, Mark Oestreicher, says is, “A healthy youth ministry starts with a healthy youth worker.” I’ve seen this play out time and again throughout my career. Sadly, many of us drop…

Prior to 2002 when Truth & Training (T&T) was introduced by Awana, they had four clubs for 3rd – 6th grade. They were Pals, Chums, Guards and Pioneers. Each club had a motto.

An integral part of Awana was not only the Gospel,  it also included telling others about Jesus Christ. With…
