I can't breathe

I Can’t Breathe: Eric Garner, Police, Jesus

I Can’t Breathe. Police Above The Law.

I can’t breathe.

The last dying cry of Eric Garner.

His voice echoes on earth through millions of voices in the streets protesting for justice. The people are crying out for freedom. Freedom from fear of police officers who shoot and choke the life out of their victims. Freedom from terror of a violent, racist police force.

I have heard the argument many times that most police officers are caring, upstanding citizens who are forced to work with thugs. Yes, I do believe there are some good officers out there. I read their stories of delivering babies on highway shoulders, saving suburban house from robberies, pulling over drunk drivers before they hurt someone. read more

Thanksgiving blessings

Thanksgiving Blessings: Journey of 2014

God has given us many Thanksgiving blessings this year. The great Provider, Abba Father, surrounds my family with love and courage here on Thanksgiving and the rest of the holiday season. He tells us that we are in the final leg of our hard journey in Minnesota. He sends the Holy Spirit to enfold my aching body in love and her soft healing touch.

I lost my job two weeks ago. You can read that story on our family gofundme page.

This tragedy was my midnight hour, the dark fear of homelessness during the holidays. Since then, I have seen Thanksgiving blessings pouring in, friends helping us, people expressing their love and sympathy for us. The love is a glimmer of light, the faint hint of dawn on the horizon of our new ministry, our new life. read more

waiting for snow

Waiting For Snow, Purification, and Justice

I am waiting for snow.

Of course I spend a lot of time waiting for snow in this frigid state of Minnesota. This is my third winter here. I am hearing from Spirit that it is our last. Our job is almost done in this land of winter.

Waiting for the First Snow

The weather forecast calls for a big snowstorm today, our first snow of winter 2014-2015. Even now I can see the first flakes, a thin layer on the ground. I am not looking forward to the snow blowing, blurring sight and traffic, blocking roads and sidewalks. The forecast is 6-12 inches, followed by days of frigid, below-freezing weather. That means winter has come, and we probably won’t see the grass again until spring. read more

holy road

Sunday Message: the Holy Road

Isaiah 35:8-10 MSG

There will be a highway called the Holy Road. No one rude or rebellious is permitted on this road. It’s for God’s people exclusively— impossible to get lost on this road. Not even fools can get lost on it. No lions on this road, no dangerous wild animals— Nothing and no one dangerous or threatening. Only the redeemed will walk on it. The people God has ransomed will come back on this road. They’ll sing as they make their way home to Zion, unfading halos of joy encircling their heads, Welcomed home with gifts of joy and gladness as all sorrows and sighs scurry into the night. read more

pray for ferguson

Pray for Ferguson: The Prophetic Word

Pray for Ferguson. The city is erupting in violence and pain. The police are out of anyone’s control. Even our government has three branches of checks and balances and elected officials who are supposed to represent their communities. The police force has no election process, not even an outside regulatory agency. The police put themselves above the law.

But they are not above God’s law.

Pray for Ferguson: A War Zone

The images coming from Saint Louis are horrible. Green and black tanks thundering down the street. Giant military guns staring down the crowd through red cross-hair eyes. The police dressed in full military uniform, the camouflage of life and death. Full out war on civilians. read more

The Tree Told Me We Would Move: Prophecy

Talking With Trees

Several years ago I (re)learned how to talk with trees. Actually, I have been communicating with trees since I was a small child. One of my few early memories is rocking on my swing and listening to the trees whisper in the wind, the flowers sing in the sunshine. My favorite tree told me all sorts of magical childhood secrets. I believe that all children can communicate with plants, and animals, through the power of the imagination.

As a young adult in college, I loved to jog in the woods. I wanted to hear the birds chirping as the stood watch over my path. Giant trees, libraries of wisdom. I imagined them talking about the weather, musing on the frailty and follies of humans, as their leaves waved gently in the breeze. I pushed hard to the end of my race as I imagined the tree at the finish line told me I would make it. read more

austerity and end times

Austerity and End Times

People are taking to the streets right now in Greece as the government passes new austerity measures (New York Times). A schoolteacher can no longer buy food for her family as her wages plummet 20%, and she is forced to line up at the soup kitchen. A government worker loses his job overnight, and he faces the prospect of losing his apartment and finding a new home- on the street.

Austerity is the Pain of the Poor

The situation is grim and will soon be repeated around Europe and the United States. Do not think that we are immune. Our government may not be calling it “austerity measures,” but every cut to Medicaid, every dollar taken from the food stamp program, every government job cut, is another person closer to disaster. We, too, will someday see rioting in the streets as people have nowhere else to turn. We must change course. read more

false prophets, snake

Warning to False Prophets

There are many churches and people who say that there are no prophets any more. I can understand their confusion. Most of the people who call themselves “prophets” in the Charismatic church are swindlers and sellers of snake oil. They preach peace when our nation is constantly at war, physically and spiritually. They are false prophets.

God is coming to judge America, indeed, the judgments have already begun. Stop listening to the lies of the false prophets proclaiming God’s blessing over America. Open your eyes and see our sinking economy! Look at the violent weather and the violent government! read more

prophetic word 2012, girl walks into mysterious light

Prophetic Word 2012: New Year

God’s prophetic word 2012 to the American church for the New Year:

2012 will not be a year of prosperity for the American church. I have given you more than enough. I am sick of blessing you with abundance and seeing you squander it.

Prophetic Word 2012 for the Church Buildings

God says:

I have given you giant church buildings to serve your communities, but you let these buildings sit empty all week. I have given you paid staff to tend to the needs of your neighbors, but you wile away your time on video games and porn. I have filled your offering plates so that you could bless the poor, but you have pocketed all of the money for yourself. I have even seen you take special offerings specifically for the poor, and then use that money as a Christmas bonus to yourself. This is an abomination in my sight. read more

Christmas Message 2011

Christmas Message 2011: Jesus the Plain One

Away in a manger, no crib for his bed..

The Christmas message 4 B.C. was that of a baby in an inglorious animal stable.

The Bible says that Jesus came to this world in the most humble way. He was rejected by people from his very first breath. He had to sleep with the animals. People had no room for him in their inn, or in their hearts.

Growing up and starting his ministry, Jesus had no loveliness to attract people to him, no flashy sermon typed up neatly on his iPad.

Isaiah prophesied:

He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. (Isaiah 53:2) read more
