  • Petrified

    Petrified from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about becoming petrified. So scared, so bound up, so terrified inside, that you are unable to think or move. Frozen in place. Unable to make decisions. An example is the guards at Jesus’ tomb on Sunday morning. At the ...

  • My Generation

    However you are just in all that is come on us; for you have dealt truly, but we have done wickedly; neither have our kings, our princes, our priests, nor our fathers, kept your law, nor listened to your commandments and your testimonies with which you did testify against them. For they have not ser...

  • Burn It All Down

    However, what things were gain to me, these have I counted loss for Christ. Yes most assuredly, and I count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord, for whom I suffered the loss of all things, and count them nothing but refuse, that I may gain Christ and be...

  • All or Nothing

    For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises up again; But the wicked are overthrown by calamity. Proverbs 24:16 WEBI felt disgusted with myself because I had tried so hard, but in a moment of weakness returned to my old habits. Now like an injured animal, I just wanted to be left alone. Soon I ...

  • Do You See What I See

    Jesus answered him, 'Simon, I have something to tell you.' He said, 'Teacher, say on.' A certain lender had two debtors. The one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. When they couldn't pay, he forgave them both. Which of them therefore will love him most?' Simon answered, 'He, I suppose, ...

  • Institutionalized Religion

    For John the Baptizer came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, 'He has a demon.' The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, 'Behold, a gluttonous man, and a drunkard; a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' Luke 7:33 WEBThere was always a gloomy feeling that settled...

  • The Appointed Time

    For the vision is yet for the appointed time, and it hurries toward the end, and won't prove false. Though it takes time, wait for it; because it will surely come. It won't delay. Habakkuk 2:3 WEBAbout thirty years ago, the Lord gave me a word that I would be a pioneer of new things in ministry, and...

    People Get Ready from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Jesus said “My sheep hear My voice” in John 10:27 and I believe that each of us have pearls of wisdom given to us by the Holy Spirit. Little gems and insights that are beautiful and meant to build up and strengthen the body of...

  • Ten Times Better

    And the king spoke with them, and among all of them none was found like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. Therefore they stood before the king. And in every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king inquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and encha...

  • Cant Touch This

    If you died with Christ from the elements of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to ordinances, 'Don't handle, nor taste, nor touch' (all of which perish with use), according to the precepts and doctrines of men? These things indeed appear like wisdom in self-imp...

  • The Way He Rolls

    While they were there, the day had come for her to give birth. She gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a feeding trough, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:6 WEBWith his wife now giving birth in a stable and the strong smell of farm ...

  • Misbehaving

    Then he poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. Then he came to Simon Peter. He said to him, 'Lord, do you wash my feet?' Jesus answered him, 'You don't know what I am doing now, but you will understand later.' P...

  • Perverted Gospel

    I marvel that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ to a different 'good news', but there isn't another 'good news.' Only there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the Good News of Christ. But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you any...

  • Amazing Grace

    Yes, all of you clothe yourselves with humility, to subject yourselves to one another; for 'God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.' Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time, casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you. 1...

  • Don't Look Back

    Don't Look Back from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about putting your hand to the plow, and looking back at what you have left behind. In Genesis chapter 19, there were two cities that had become extremely wicked, so bad that God decided the Earth would be better off w...

  • The Road Ahead

    He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He spoke to them openly. Peter took him, and began to rebuke him. But he, turning around, and seeing his disciples, r...

  • Hooked on a Feeling

    He caused me to pass by them all around: and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and behold, they were very dry. He said to me, 'Son of man, can these bones live?' I answered, 'Lord Yahweh, you know.' Again he said to me, 'Prophesy over these bones, and tell them, 'You dry bones, hear Y...

  • Strangers In The Night

    But he, desiring to justify himself, asked Jesus, 'Who is my neighbor?' Jesus answered, 'A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who both stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. By chance a certain priest was going down that way. Whe...

  • Answers by Fire

    Then Elijah said to the people, 'I, even I only, am left as a prophet of Yahweh; but Baal's prophets are four hundred fifty men. Let them therefore give us two bulls; and let them choose one bull for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on the wood, and put no fire under; and I will dress th...
