Read part 1 - HERE! Over the last 50 years, there has been an acceleration in the restoring of apostolic and prophetic leadership to the body of Messiah around the world. There are many spiritual principles we can glean from the original meaning of "apostle" which will clarify the role of apostles today. Yes, we [...]
Have you ever wondered what the word "apostle" meant to those living in the time the New Covenant was written? I believe that understanding the original meaning and use of the word "apostle" will help bring clarity to the role of apostles today. Here are some things I have discovered: Before the New Covenant was [...]
There are many accounts of sexual sin in the Bible and we can learn much from both the stories of success and those of failure. In my eyes, Joseph has one of the most inspiring victories over sexual temptation. By the time the seventeen year old Joseph was sold to Potiphar in Genesis 39, he [...]
