In this episode, Erin Olson introduces the Bible teaching series she is launching over the next several weeks. Erin will be covering the entire book of Acts because it’s where the Church began. Erin was recently reminded that not everyone who sits in church knows the Bible, including all of the terms of context included in it.
Are we living in the last days? Will this generation see the return of Christ? We will discuss what to look for and how to prepare for our soon coming King, Jesus in this episode. You don’t want to miss this!
Have you ever seen so much fact-checking? It is popping up everywhere. But, where are these “fact-checkers” getting their facts? And are their facts really facts at all? We’ll answer these questions and more on this episode of Navigating Life in the Spirit!
Can you believe some of the things that are happening today? I’m continually shaking my head. How could things get more absurd? What on earth is going on anyway? Tune in this week as we talk about the absurdity going on in America.
Nobody really wants to look foolish, unless they are a clown by trade. But what if the Holy Spirit asks you to do something that seems absolutely foolish?
I wonder today if those same words by Satan are being whispered in some Christian’s ears, “Did God really say?” Progressive Christianity is pushing a narrative that changes what God said is good and right according to His Word.
Experiences you have banished from your personal history as worthless and painful, God does not forget.
He seeks even what we’ve discarded, and makes it serve the overall mosaic of your life.
Godly men need to relearn through the power of The Holy Spirit how to be gentle yet strong, and worthy of respect.
If we don’t recognize the proper wisdom and knowledge that comes from God, then we won’t be free from the darkness.
It has become harder and harder to get quality sleep whether it is due to stress,
insomnia, illness, time management, social media— the list goes on.
This journey of everyday ordinary living doesn’t always feel like a
mountain-top experience, but neither does being on a mountain-top.
As we move toward Him, awkward and faltering, He exuberantly reaches out to us with His arms wide open and an enormous smile of joyous welcome.
We all have our own lens through which we look. They are assumptions, reactions,
and judgments that influence how we see the world and its people.
After years of pushing myself beyond my own personal limits, it finally became clear
that I needed to stop chasing performance and start getting comfortable with who I am.
Whenever we pick up the Bible, we’re expecting the Scriptures to describe God to us
in such a way that it will teach us, that is, banish our ignorance of spiritual things.
Sometimes even believers are perplexed with some Scripture.
But God’s Word is a lamp for immediate illumination and a light for ongoing discernment.
It’s a matter of being resolute and steadfast, holding onto the promises and the words God has given you. He speaks all the time within your heart, especially when you have a Holy Spirit within you. We allow the noise and the news of the world to drown that out and people get themselves in such a tizzy.
I hope you haven’t, but this afternoon that is exactly what I visualized as it felt like my peace, vision, and even breath was being sucked out of my head.
Here I’ll continue to take a look at the differences between the rapture and the second coming,
this time by heading to Matthew 24:40-41, a section that is often attributed to being the rapture of the church.
It wasn’t that God wouldn’t take my health issues like He would my worries about the pandemic
or state of our country—it was that I hadn’t stopped trying to control them.
When we can’t or are unable to ask new questions or consider new answers, we limit our field of vision.
In doing so, we run the risk of missing the possibilities God provides…of confusing our partial story of God with one that is complete.
In the same way, we have seasons in life. We’ll have the occasional wintery day with
grey clouds and cold, but we serve a God who promises that spring will be on the way.
Our relational walk with the three-in-one God results in a three-in-one journey.
Without the active, daily pursuit of God’s presence, normal everyday life will be unsatisfactory.
In the absence of intimacy, reverence, and fellowship with God, life becomes purposeless and unfulfilling.
