Damaged by Adult ADD?

FOR YEARS I WONDERED why walking through a busy shopping mall was unpleasant and disorienting. There was too much visual stimulation. Too much input felt overwhelming. It made me feel uneasy, almost nauseous, like I had mild motion sickness. I thought everyone was like this, but I had poorer self-control. So I would walk through… Read More »

Don’t Give Up the Fight!

Ron spoke at Ignited Church in Lakeland, FL, October, 2016. He warned that God would cover things in the US presidential candidates that would be shocking. He also said that God acts outside of our religious boxes, that He can anoint a king Cyrus to accomplish His plan even the man is ungodly. His talk… Read More »

GIVE ME LIBERTY… TO NOT BE AFRAID

Patrick Henry said, “I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” Campaigns are fought over ideas. The debate is healthy; the animosity is not. America’s founders came to this land for religious freedom. They were loyal to the Crown but they eventually revolted against taxation… Read More »

HOW DOES GOD VOTE?

I was in Florida recently when the opportunity arose to see Donald Trump at a rally. I tried to go to the airport but couldn’t get in. The roads were jammed. Fox News reported hundreds of people attended. I think the crowd was bigger, maybe 10,000, similar to earlier that day in Ocala. Fox must… Read More »

MINING FOR WEALTH

My wife and I were in central Florida recently. We sat in in the afternoon shade on the first cool day of fall, listening to an 88-year old sun-tanned man tell how my father had given him his career. We heard how his wonderful family was so blessed. We heard tales of prayers answered, great… Read More »

THE CIRCLE OF LIFE

Forty years ago in Louisiana, I was pastoring my first church. That church had been in serious decline. Then the Lord sent me there and it was rescued. But soon trouble erupted. A deacon named John Courtney led a conspiracy to remove me as pastor. He became offended with me after I baptized a black… Read More »

OUR YEAR OF JUBILEE

Unless you were raised as a Jew, you wouldn’t know about Israel’s feast days. These events are memorials in time. They are divine markers of history and serve as prophetic pictures of redemption. Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year. It was on October 3rd this year. It also marked the end of the Year… Read More »

9/11 FROM AFRICA

Last week I tried to write a column about 9/11. But it wasn’t right. I had to stop and deal with my anger. So I scrapped it and started over. I’ll admit, it’s very easy to fall into the trap of hating the haters. But if we do that, we will become like them. We… Read More »

WASHINGTON APPEALED TO HEAVEN

When I recently re-watched the HBO series John Adams, I was struck by the frequent appearance of the Appeal to Heaven flag. It is all white with a green fir tree and those three words across the bottom. That flag, first used by George Washington, was a symbol showing our forefathers’ dependence on God. They… Read More »

PRAYING FOR THE ELECTION

The last time I smelled frankincense and myrrh was when Jesus showed up. This happened in a church in Texas 16 years ago. We met there with a hundred intercessors. We had been worshipping God and praying for God’s will to be done in the upcoming election in America. A mysterious scene is depicted in… Read More »
