Brothers and sisters, how many of us have believed an evil report? There are tremendously challenging times ahead – and even upon us. However, we must be led by the Holy Spirit and following the calling of God on our lives. Our lives are meant to be supernaturally driven. Only this light will stand as a testimony in this generation. It is time to press in to God rather than our own strength and plans. How many don’t see hope forward? There is joy and power and peace and strength available in the name of Jesus! God is who He says He is. Lord let us be who you say we are and not who we imagine ourselves to be.
And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Send men to spy out the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel; from each tribe of their fathers you shall send a man, every one a leader among them.”
And they returned from spying out the land after forty days.
Now they departed and came back to Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the children of Israel in the Wilderness of Paran, at Kadesh; they brought back word to them and to all the congregation, and showed them the fruit of the land. Then they told him, and said: “We went to the land where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities are fortified and very large; moreover we saw the descendants of Anak there. The Amalekites dwell in the land of the South; the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountains; and the Canaanites dwell by the sea and along the banks of the Jordan.”
Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.”
But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.” And they gave the children of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone as spies is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great stature. There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”
So all the congregation lifted up their voices and cried, and the people wept that night.

Say yes to God today! Times Square Church recently celebrated its 30th anniversary since being planted by Pastor David Wilkerson in 1987. Always press forward in prayer, in God’s Word, in fasting, and in all things glorifying to the name of Jesus.
Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:
“Whom shall I send,
And who will go for Us?”
Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”
Christians have a responsibility to pursue truth where ever it might lead. That means we will need to begin to think on our own and not swallow everything presented to us as truth. And here’s a news flash folks, much of what people hear from their pastor week after week is sorely lacking in the truth department. I liken the sermons from most of America’s pastors today as a bunch of cotton candy – sweet to the taste, but dissolves almost instantly and you’re left with rotten teeth and an upset stomach as a result of eating too much of it. This is especially true when it comes to what many refer to as the Millennial Generation. They have a strong disposition against phony sermons and phony Christians.
Thankfully there are many faithful Bible teachers, researchers and podcasters that are doing the heavy lifting once only done by America’s pastors. One of those people is my friend Sam Johnston, the host of the Sharpening Report. Stay tuned for our conversation in this episode of SER.
Join us On the Objective as your host Steven Menking (The Amateur Society) welcomes John Finch (The Father Effect) to discuss his movie production and upcoming book about the importance of fatherhood. Forgiveness, culture, father wounds, spiritual maturity, proper parenting, and the way a Christian must look to God as our heavenly Father are all touched upon in a dynamic conversation about this critical yet unaddressed issue.

Be encouraged brothers and sisters. The love of many is waxing cold, but we can build an immunity to discouragement through surrender to God. God doesn’t always move how and when we would anticipate or desire. Remember, His ways and thoughts are above ours. Trust in Jesus!
Now behold, two of them were traveling that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was seven miles from Jerusalem. And they talked together of all these things which had happened. So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them. But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him.
And He said to them, “What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you walk and are sad?”
Then the one whose name was Cleopas answered and said to Him, “Are You the only stranger in Jerusalem, and have You not known the things which happened there in these days?”
And He said to them, “What things?”
So they said to Him, “The things concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a Prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death, and crucified Him. But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, today is the third day since these things happened.

“Christian allies of the LGBT community may feel they are being a ‘good Christian’ by supporting and affirming this ‘lifestyle.’ While we should have the heart of Christ by loving and treating everyone with compassion and respect, encouraging a homosexual to remain in this life is encouraging further enslavement into a life that is in rebellion to God. Jesus loved the outcasts but, still, He did not condone sin. It is hurting the homosexual. They need to know deliverance is possible.”
This is a quote from author George Carneal’s book, From Queer to Christ: My Journey Into the Light. And it is the subject of my conversation with George in this episode of SER.

And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
