Please pray for our daughter Alyson

Posted Mar 30th, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry

Hi, Everyone - Marie and I just received word that my daughter Alyson, who lives in Minneapolis and is an Intensive Care nurse at a hospital there, is experiencing symptoms that are consistent with Covid-19. 
She is being tested tomorrow, with a temperature of 102, headache, and sore throat with body aches as well. She has been off work for several days since the symptoms began, having been working long hours in the ICU caring for Covid-19 patients. 
Please pray for her,...

The Blood of Jesus: God's Ultimate Bail-Out Package

Posted Mar 29th, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry

I'm meditating during this season on the power of the blood of Jesus, which is the ultimate "bail-out package" of all time. Every one of us was overwhelmed by the worst virus of all - sin. We were lost, sick, disqualified, banned from the life of God by our own choices, needing much more than any $2 trillion aid legislation could purchase - BUT GOD did it for us! 
Even as the blood of Abel cried out from the ground, and...

Finding Our Glory in the Knowledge of God

Posted Mar 25th, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry

It's good to keep in mind the sovereign goodness of God, and that He is in charge of all the realities that confront us, even in times like these.
Marie was spending time in prayer last night, and was led to these statements from Jeremiah 9:23-24 -
Thus says the LORD:
“Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;
24 But let him who glories glory...

Blessings on You and an Invitation for You

Posted Mar 24th, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry

Good Morning, Friends!
What a weird and fascinating time we find ourselves in right now! My prayer for us all is that we will seize this moment as an invitation to go deeper into the Presence of Jesus, to not just learn about Him, but to actually learn FROM Him.
This kind of forced Sabbath is certainly unusual for us all, but our choice is clear - we can press into our Savior's agenda, or we can self-medicate and miss a wonderful...

The Seven-Fold Spirit of God: The Spirit of Yehovah

Posted Mar 17th, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry

In this series of articles, I’m looking at Isaiah 11:2, where the prophet articulates the seven-fold anointing of the Holy Spirit that will be upon the Branch of Jesse, who is Jesus, the Servant-Messiah. This post will focus on the first of these anointings, the Spirit of the LORD. Notice that in most versions of the Scripture, the capitalized “LORD” is replacing the personal name of God, which is Yehovah, or Yahweh.
At first glance, it might seem that this designation would not be...

Seven Hands and the Seven Spirits of God

Posted Mar 11th, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry

A couple of years ago, my wife Marie was getting ready for bed, and she sensed the Lord speaking to her, telling her to prepare a notepad and a pen because He was going to speak to her during the night. She was intrigued by this and followed the instructions. At about 2 AM that night she was awakened by the voice of the Lord speaking just two words: “Seven hands.” In the dark of the night Marie found her...

May The Joy of the Lord Strengthen You this Christmas Season!

Posted Dec 9th 2019, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry

May the Joy of the Lord Strengthen You this Christmas Season!
The joy of the Father's heart in sending Jesus to earth is the anticipation of a family fully formed in the image of His glorious Son, to be the Bridal Partner that Jesus has longed since the creation of the world. May that joy strengthen you this season as the Holy Spirit works toward the completion of His task, the fullness of His glory revealed in His people.
Marie and I are...

Contending For The Presence Of God

Posted Dec 5th 2019, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry

The Holy Spirit is speaking loudly and clearly these days through many voices from many different directions, summoning God’s people to pay attention to His agenda at this time in history. We have heard His voice clearly in our own personal times in prayer as well as through the urgings of prophetic declarations from many sources, literally around the world. 
His agenda? He desires to be present among His people in manifest power and authority, beyond what we’ve seen or heard...

Please Help Us Pray For Naomi Fahey

Posted Dec 3rd 2019, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry

I’m writing this post to ask for prayer for a young mom in our Fellowship, SOZO Church in Belfair, Washington. Her name is Naomi Fahey, and she is the wife of Nathan and the mother of three handsome boys, ages 11, 13, and 14. Naomi is battling a rare genetically Inherited disease called Machado-Joseph’s disease. It is a neurodegenerative condition that results in loss of muscular control and, absent the Lord’s healing power, is ultimately fatal. Both Naomi’s father and...

The Motivation for Seeking Righteousness

Posted Oct 1st 2019, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry

Why is this pursuit of righteousness so important in our lives? Because it simply means that we can become everything God intended us to be. I appreciate the Armed Forces of the United States, and it is with due respect that I say they cannot fulfill their promise to their recruits to “Become all that you can be.” The power to make us all that we can be rests with God alone, and is released only to those who find...

Righteousness: The Source of Ultimate Gladness

Posted Sep 11th 2019, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry

Another dimension of Jesus’ commitment to righteousness is revealed in Psalm 45. The writer of this beautiful poem is singing a hymn of praise to the King, a love song that finds its ultimate fulfillment in the person of Jesus. Under the leading of the Holy Spirit, the writer makes this declaration about Jesus that points with boldness and clarity to the benefits of loving righteousness:
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of...

Hunger and Thirst in the Life of Jesus

Posted Sep 3rd 2019, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry

If we are to come into our full inheritance of authority on earth as it is in heaven, it is also essential that we perceive that Jesus is the model of each of these character traits. It is Jesus to whom we are joined in the true marriage covenant, and it is He who gives full expression to each of the Beatitudes. Therefore, to embrace the Beatitudes as our lifestyle is to cooperate with the process of conformity to His...

Confidence Before God is the Fruit of Righteousness

Posted Aug 27th 2019, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry

When righteousness is centrally established and becomes the goal and expression of our lives, there emerges a marvelous confidence that God Himself is our champion. We begin to realize that nothing can shake us from our place in His heart, and that He is the one watching over our every circumstance. King David was one who understood this principle to a wonderful degree. His writings reflect a deep confidence in the Lord his God who would protect him in the...

Since these things are true, the only thing that really ought to matter to me is the discovery of what God thinks about me. Once I begin to understand His definition of reality in general, and my life in particular, then I begin to have the hope of coming to some sense of fulfillment and power. Consider the words of Martyn Lloyd-Jones as he writes of the ultimate importance of God’s priorities being established in our hearts:
We are not meant...
