Where is Heaven?

While the word heaven can be used to refer to and describe various things such as the stars and sky above, we are talking here about the place of God’s throne. (Psalms 11:4) Where is this place called heaven? The Scriptures tell us a lot about heaven, but it doesn’t give us an exact location, however, it does give us several insights, hints and clues. First, heaven is referred to as “Paradise”. Jesus told the criminal on the cross next to him, “today you will be with Me in Paradise.”(John 23:43) The apostle Paul told of how he was, “was...

Blindsided by God?

Most of us have been “blindsided” at various times throughout life. Blindsided means being hit or confronted by something that comes from out of our line of vision or our normal expectations and we are taken by surprise. We usually associate being blindsided with some negative experience such as being betrayed by a friend or someone close to us , or losing our job, or a family member unexpectedly dying or receiving some unexpected negative report. When we’re ‘blindsided” by these type of situations, as Christians we often struggle to understand why. We tend to blame God. We think, how...

Is Heaven a Real Place?

Is “heaven” just a state of mind or is heaven a real place? We use the word heaven to refer to the stars and sky. It is used to describe something as good and pleasant like “that tasted heavenly”, but the scriptures clearly present and use the word heaven to refer to a “real tangible place”. So, the question is, “Is heaven a real place? Does heaven really exist? Many struggle with believing in a real heaven because they can’t physically see it. However, just because you cannot see something does not prove it doesn’t exist. There a number of...

How to Hear from God

Can we really hear from God? Does God speak to us? John 10:3-5,27 says, “… the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. ” 27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;” As Christians we are referred to as the Lord’s sheep. Notice Jesus said His sheep (that’s us) hear His voice. It is very clear that God is speaking to each one...

Defeat the Devil

Defeat the devil and stop him from bullying you.  Jesus defeated the devil 2000 years ago, but we must continue to enforce that defeat.  The devil goes around looking for those he can intimidate and bully.  (1Peter 5:8)  Growing up my dad taught me a lesson in the natural that when applied in the spiritual will insure the defeat of the devil in your life. When I was in the sixth grade there was a bully in our school who intimidated most students. He would threaten kids by saying he’d punch them out if they didn’t do what he said....

This is the position many people take or at least espouse. However, God is...

7 Strategies for Financial Freedom

  1. Make God your source. “The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him. God owns everything and is the source of all things. Everything else is a “resource”. God uses others to “RE -source” His provision. So, your source is not your job, the government, the company, or anyone else. God uses them as vehicles to bring provision to you. Deuteronomy 8:18 tells us, “remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth,” It is God gives us the ability to get...

What Happens When You Die?

What happens when you die? Is death the end? Is there life after death?  It’s a question that everyone seeks an answer for. Even CNN did an article “Beyond Goodbye” to explore life after death experiences.   Why all the interest?   Because death is the one thing in life that everybody will experience regardless of their background, wealth, education, pedigree, philosophy, or religion. No one is exempt.  We all at some point have to face our own mortality. Man throughout history has looked for the proverbial “fountain of youth” with out success. Even today we are inundated with all kinds of...
