Are you washed in the Blood or do you dwell in the desert?

Posted by appolus on April 29, 2008

Let me ask you something, and be honest, when did you die? Can you remember dying and being born-again? Now, I am not talking about stepping forward and signing the pledge in some Sunday school class when you were six. I am asking you when you died? To die to the world is a wrenching experience, but it is an experience. If you came forward in some service so many vague years ago and took out some fire insurance against the inferno’s of hell then you probably cannot relate to this “dying.” The question is “when did you die to the world?” Read the rest of this entry »

Forgiveness leads to Him

Posted by appolus on April 27, 2008

He who forgives not is not forgiven, and the prayer of the
Pharisee is as the weary beating of the surf of hell, while the
cry of a soul out of its fire sets the heart-strings of Love
trembling.
… George Macdonald (1824-1905), Sir Gibbie [1879]

A Word from the Lord

Posted by appolus on April 25, 2008

Do you not know that I am the God that searches your heart? There are no walls around my church. There are walls that surround your hearts. These walls are made of other gods. Behind these walls, in the garden of your heart, lie idols of gold & mammon and every foul thing My Word warns you clearly about. Where is My precious Son Jesus? Is there any room left for Him in your hearts or has He been relegated to just another idol?

My Testimony “The Valley of Achor.” (Lengthy)

Posted by appolus on April 25, 2008

When there was no food on the table, she told us that we had to believe and that the Lord would provide, and then we would hear a letter dropping. We would rush to the door and there would be an envelope with money in it. We found out years later that a wonderful woman in Christ would often be led by Jesus to put her tithe in an envelope and drop it through our door. No name, just obedience to the Holy Spirit’s leading.

A Broken heart replaced

Posted by appolus on April 25, 2008

These are two poems that speak of my journey form being the child of an alcoholic, to being one myself, to coming to Christ. And the glorious liberty that I found in the day that I called out to Him and He came to me, right where I was in all my sin and filth. I try to decribe the shame and the guilt and the heart of a young child being crushed by a cruel,lost father.

The Candle

Posted by appolus on April 24, 2008

My mother was talking to a new convert in Scoltand. She asked the lady, who did not have a church background ,how it felt. This lady did not have any “Christianeze,” with which to reply, she simply stated “Its as if someone has lit a candle and placed it in my chest.” That inspired me to write this poem 🙂

 

The Candle

Oh hallelujah, who lit the candle
Oh hallelujah my Savior it be
Oh hallelujah may this candle forever
Burn gloriously and brightly deep within me

For I was a sinner, so cold and rejected
No light in my tunnel that I could see
Then the candle was lit and the darkness was vanquished
And now and forever in His arms I will be

The things of this world no longer enthrall
I’m walking and talking and living with He
The one from above, my Savior , my Jesus
He died in my place that I may be free

Though the wind is still blowing, often times howling
And the storm clouds gather to come against me
I’ll stand on the Rock, my eyes towards heaven
And the candle , yes the candle’s still burning in me

So we praise you for the candle, most Holy Father
Glorious Jesus , forever you’ll be
Higher than the heavens , enthroned in your glory
For you are the candle that burns brightly in me

(is your candle still burning?)

Sexual problems?How to stay pure.

Posted by appolus on April 24, 2008

This is not a problem in men’s lives it is sin. Until a man recognizes that he is living in this sin, he cannot even take the first step on the road to purity. Regardless of how a man is raised, regardless of the circumstances of his childhood, there will come a point in every mans life that he will have to face, not only the sin, but the consequences of the sin.

What is Faith? Do you have it?

Posted by appolus on April 22, 2008

What if one of your children becomes very ill? What if one of your loved ones is diagnosed with cancer? All of a sudden, what seemed like a complicated life, suddenly becomes very simple, we now focus like a laser, on what really matters. Things that seemed important the day before, now are no longer afforded even a thought as we cry out to God for that which presses on our souls and that which has consumed us.

The Trial of Your Faith

Posted by appolus on April 22, 2008

There is no easy solution or fix to the “Dark night of the soul.” If you will be a warrior in the army of the Lord you will certainly go through basic training that will make the training of today’s special forces seem like a picnic.

Out of The Tempest

Posted by appolus on April 21, 2008

I talked to a woman today. She was caught up in a storm of bitterness, anger and unforgiveness for her husband on what seemed like a small and reasonably insignificant incident. What I saw in the Spirit was a woman enslaved to fear and insecurity and past hurts. Each of these elements fueled each other, they were three slavemasters. The original masters name was “past hurts.” He went out and had insecurity and fear join him as they mercilessly whipped this woman.

Our Attitude is the Key to Life

Posted by appolus on April 21, 2008

The unique thing about Christians is that we start our Christians lives in victory, the victory of Calvary where the Lord made an open shame of the enemy and defeated him on the cross. That is our starting point, our South Pole. Just as Amundsen raced back from the Pole towards glory and triumph, so we too as Christians race toward the Glory of the living God, an eternal glory that rises majestically above any glory man could ever bestow.

The Difference between Men and Angels

Posted by appolus on April 21, 2008

Angels were born into the presence of God. They were immediately privileged to dwell in the unadulterated presence of God Almighty. It is obvious that they had the ability to sin, as man did, but there is a direct correlation between proximity to God and depth of sin and rebellion.

Faith is in the Silence

Posted by appolus on April 13, 2008

In the agony of illumination , we cry out to God and from the very alter of the living God, with tongs mind you, the angel touches you with fire, refining fire. THIS IS REVIVAL. One man or woman will agonize at his or her state, he or she will cry out to God, and God will send fire from the alter itself . As that one stands in the midst of us, the impenitent will harden and will flee, and those who linger in the light from the coal from the alter will be revived and refined and the fire will spread and it will consume. And a people will cry out and worship God and they too will cry “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God almighty.”

Baptism in the Holy Spirit

Posted by appolus on April 9, 2008

“It was this experience, twelve years later and in a state of alcoholic and drugged desperation, that I remembered. I thought about the love that I had felt all those years ago when the Lord had took over me for a few moments, I thought about the witness of my mother, who continued on with Christ despite all her many trials, I thought about the love and the peace and the tranquility of that moment that I had felt, and suddenly I longed for a safe harbor from the raging storms of my mind. I decided to find Jesus and ask Him to take my life, such as it was. I did find Him, He did take it and now, 18 years after that I have been priveleged to walk beside Him.”

Hope In Jesus

Posted by appolus on April 7, 2008

He is above us, and His Spirit goes before us and will make the crooked path straight, He will make “rivers in the desert,” He will “make a way where there seems to be no way,” for He is faithful and true and is holding out His hand to you right now, lift up your head, reach out and take it, He will lead and guide you through this most difficult part.

Martin Luther King

Posted by appolus on April 4, 2008

I have a dream this day. I dream that men and woman of God around the world would rise up and take their rightful place in the Kingdom of God. If that means death to the flesh, or perhaps even literal death, then is it not better to die for our God in the glorious cause of freedom than to live out our lives in mediocrity? Better to only live one more day, but live that day a free man, than to live forty more years in the shadow of fear. Better to die in the street a chain breaker, than to be found cowering behind the door with a gun, ready to shoot anyone who “tries to get me and mine.”

Peace like a River

Posted by appolus on April 3, 2008

My peace is like a river
Winding slowly to the sea
My heart is deeper than the oceon
Filled with love He gave to me

Oh love that knows no ending
Rise up and set me free
I shall sail forever on this oceon
Forever, ever closer unto thee

Fill my sails oh precious Jesus
Wind of the Spirit propel me on
Over seas of tranquil beauty
To the horizon and beyond

I have sailed through stormy waters
When all my days had turned to night
I have sailed though windless days
Often tempted,tired, and no more fight

Sometimes the sun it seems to set
And we fight the rising tide
Of fear and darkness and regret
Yet thou art always by my side

So sail on my heart, to journey’s end
Sail on into the night
And neither wind nor rain nor stormy seas
Shall diminish the morning light

The River of Life

Posted by appolus on April 2, 2008

This flow must come from the very center of who we are, the most secret parts of us, the secret garden of our hearts, a place that is often times hidden away by the ravages of life. While this is the true source of life, the place that Jesus must reign over, too often is it guarded. Jesus has gone to enormous lengths to free us to be exactly who He wants us to be, yet so many will miss out because the very core of who they are remains veiled and guarded.
