The Spoils of War(The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom)

Posted by appolus on May 30, 2008

Its about being transparent in our walk with Him. Its about taking back ground and being more effective for Him. Its about the fact that darkness must flee when it is exposed to light. This is the battle and it mostly takes place in the mind, the flesh demanding that it be protected at all costs, not wanting to be “humiliated,” or “humbled,” in the sight of man.

The Fire That Lights the Darkness

Posted by appolus on May 28, 2008

If it was not for this fire, that rages in the night
This blood that runs like molten to my soul
I would fall into the darkness, never more to fight
My light would be consumed and the dark would take its toll

Stabbed in the Heart(Baptism in the Holy Spirit)

Posted by appolus on May 27, 2008

 So what is there a desperate need of today? The power that the Apostles exercised before Pentecost? Or the power that they exercised after Pentecost? May the Spirit of the Lord fall upon His church and may we be endued with “Katanusso,” power, the power to penetrate the hard hearts of the lost and the dying . Read the rest of this entry »

False Prophets (Written in 2004)

Posted by appolus on May 27, 2008

In August 17th, 1999, an earthquake of 7.2 magnitude hit Kocaeli Turkey. It lasted for 45 seconds and when the dust finally cleared, 17,000 people were dead. In the later investigation, it was found that many of the deaths occurred because building codes were not adhered to and therefore the buildings collapsed needlessly. The Contractors responsible were charged with murder.

Be anxious for Nothing (Fear, the greatest enemy of the Church)

Posted by appolus on May 26, 2008

Are you tired of living in fear? Lets call fear what it is, it is a lack of trust in God. Trust is the foundation of any relationship, trust and commitment. How can we be committed to a God in whom we do not trust? When we do not trust Him, then we are calling Him a liar. If we step outside of trusting Him, then we begin to run our own lives, making our own decisions. When a Christian makes a decision, based on fear, disaster inevitably follows.

Can You See Him In The Fire?

Posted by appolus on May 24, 2008

Listen guys, maybe you’re in the fire today. I have no answers as to why or how long, but this I know,……………look…………Jesus is in the fire with you. This fire is not for your destruction, even although the enemy would like you to think otherwise. Take your eyes of the circumstances, take your eyes of the flames, allow the doubts and fears to melt away in the flames. Let the flames, that were meant for your destruction by the enemy, burn up the fears and the doubts as you turn towards Jesus.

Let Freedom Ring

Posted by appolus on May 19, 2008

As a man born in Scotland, there is no more emotive issue than the one of freedom. I was raised with myth and legend and folklore about freedom. Our history is replete with heroes of the cause , standing up against injustice and fighting the good fight. Even if it meant your life, it was better to die on the bloody battlefield than to live a life of oppresion and slavery. This is such a powerful motivating force and many men have been inspired to pick up the sword and go to battle in the name of “Freedom.” Yet, what were they really fighting for? What doed freedom mean in the heavenly realms and to the warrior of Christ? Read the rest of this entry »

I Will Never Leave You Nor Forsake You!

Posted by appolus on May 19, 2008

The Lord is good and He is faithful. We are never tempted more than we are able and when the enemy comes in like a flood, then He raises up a standard. A standard is the colors of a regiment, like a flag.

The Lord has promised that His banner over us is Love. Just when Satan was proudly surveying Calvary, chest puffed out in pride at the damage and death he has inflicted on the Son of God, through the mist and confusion he suddenly sees the banner flying high over that terrible scene. It is the banner of Love that has conquered all and declares victory in the midst of seeming defeat.

How often in our lives do we come to the very edge of defeat, the end of ourselves and all our strengths and it is then that we are flooded with the Grace of God that raises us up, above the battlefield where we lay injured and defeated in the flesh. Our flesh has an end but our spirit is victorious through the blood of the Lamb, we become overcomers because He overcame, “Be of good cheer, for I have overcame the world.”

It is to this promise that we cling, we trust in the Lord with an unconditional trust. A trust that cannot see ahead, a trust that does not know what tomorrow brings. We only know that tomorrow belongs to Him and that tomorrow , He holds our hand. “Lift up your eyes and see who has created all these things. Who brings out the host by number and knows them all by name. By the greatness of His might and the strength of His power, not one is missing.” The stars in heaven undoubtedly declare the glory of the living God, yet we too, brothers and sisters in Christ, are the host of heaven, we declare His glory, He knows our names and not one of us is forgotten…………praise His marvelous name, that name which is above every other, Jesus your name is High and lifted up to the glory of God the Father.

The Spirit of Conviction

Posted by appolus on May 14, 2008

It is a great wonder that some of the most riveting and memorable stories in the Bible are not about “good folk.” The Lord had came down from heaven to highlight love and grace and mercy and redemption. How better to do that than on the canvas of some of the greatest sinners. Against the blackness of these lives we see the brilliance and the total majesty of grace. When one goes into a jewelers and looks at diamonds, most times they are shown against black velvet. The blackness of the background only highlights the beauty and perfection of the gems. In much the same way Jesus chose those folk with black backgrounds to highlight the utter beauty of a love that ignores the vileness of the gutter, the sewers of life, to demonstrate the indescribable grace and mercy of God .He would not only condescend to come to a dark earth, but would go right into the hells of our society, not with condemnation but with open loving forgiving arm. Praise God I speak not from theory.

A Word from God (Go Beyond what you Know)

Posted by appolus on May 11, 2008

Each human is a vast unexplored universe. Only I have the ability to navigate the human heart and map it. Without the navigator, without the map all is chaos and darkness. Without the ship of God and Jesus the Captain, you will only ever stare at the horizon of your souls and be fearful of what lies beyond. Read the rest of this entry »

I Bore You on Eagles Wings

Posted by appolus on May 7, 2008

Learning to trust in God relies upon us not knowing what is going to happen next. Yet the tyranny of fear means that we will cling to any man who promises us results in the midst of seeming defeat. Even our own hearts deceive us. What makes perfect sense to us, does not always play out as many could testify to. We learn to trust God and exercise faith at the highest level when we do not know if we will be healed, or where we are going or what is going to happen next. Read the rest of this entry »

Woe unto the pastors, for the church is dead!

Posted by appolus on May 4, 2008

Now that we are relatively few in the world, he is coming after us. Most of us have been captured and imprisoned. Many of us have already been killed. The world was plunged into chaos and the genuine Christians were blamed for most of the evils. We would not compromise. We refused to drop the name “Jesus,” from our prayers Read the rest of this entry »

Seeking After Signs?

Posted by appolus on May 1, 2008

Yet, in many ways, Calvary is not enough for people. They want, no demand, victory over their circumstances, a change in circumstances, anything less is unacceptable. Yet the way of the cross is the same today as it was then. It signifies death and victory, not for changed circumstances, but in the very midst of them. Read the rest of this entry »
