Understanding The Wineskin of The Kingdom

As the Kingdom of God continues to be taught and preached across the world, there is a piece to the overall theology that remains unfinished. In order to bring the Kingdom of God to the earth, we must have agreement and understanding of what that looks like.

Societal transformation is necessary to achieving this task. However, this in its own right is still a misunderstood concept that carries objectives which need to be aligned in a biblical perspective in order to attain our mandates as sons of God.

How do we do this? By looking at and understanding God's law in relation to the law of the world, by analyzing the true difference between the current state of our world and biblical instruction, and by looking at history to show us where this all began. It is not simply fixed by more revival, but by an ambitious undertaking of unification amongst all the spheres of culture, beginning with the gatekeepers in each realm and by affecting change through them with the proper biblical viewpoint.

The word of God teaches us that there are times God’s presence can leave the corporate expression of His people; We see this in 1 Samuel 4:21-22 when the name Ichabod was given to the grandson of Eli, the high priest, after the ark of the covenant was captured by the Philistines. Also, in the […]


Was Jesus A Fundamentalist Preacher?

In this politically correct age—when Evangelicals are starting to gain more and more cultural traction as they gain more political, economic and academic power—it is becoming more tempting for Evangelicals to do away with some biblical beliefs that embarrass our public personas and impede acceptance by worldly power brokers in this so called “tolerant,” “multicultural,” […]


10 Hazards of the Prayer-less Church

I have been a pastor almost thirty-four years and have been involved in initiating or participated in many local, citywide and national prayer gatherings.

Why Politics Crucified Jesus

During this election season, most have bought into the erroneous idea that society should be run purely from a secular mindset.
