This is a warning to believers to take no part in defaming Prophet Brian Carn or seeking after the news for entertainment. Seek the guidance of the Lord. And please be in intercession for the man of God.
This morning I felt a stirring in my spirit. I was restless. The restlessness came from a desire to serve at a soup kitchen. Last year, when I was Atlanta … Continue Reading Who Do You Serve

Of course there is the ubiquitous Christmas tree. Selecting the most appropriate Christmas tree and decorating it are past times that each family relishes.

Guess what? I have been secretly collaborating with the prolific writer Denise “Poetess” Fyffe, of Revealing the Christian Life, on a novella about depression and suicide. It will be … Continue Reading Sudden Death
“Your faith has made you well”.
Jesus’ statement, to the woman with the issue of blood, teaches that we must be open to receive healing from God before it is granted. We must desire healing above everything. The greater our faith, the quicker we may receive our healing.
The woman with the issue of blood pulled her healing from him. She pressed forward in the crowd and without uttering a word, touched His clothes. Most people believed He could only heal them by laying hands on them (Matthew 9:18). She was bold. She dare believe God for something greater.
Will You Be Made Whole
Do we dare answer this question in our quest for healing?
I experienced a very sharp pain in my lower back while at church recently. The pain was new. I pondered on it for a moment and realised what happened.
“I must have received it after interacting with someone during the service. A few minutes ago, I shook hands with many people. Which one of them was experiencing this problem?”
My eyes swept those close by. When my gaze fell on the last person whose hand I shook, the pain increase slightly. By word of knowledge, the Holy Spirit was indicating that he was experiencing pain.
Many persons struggle to understand and remember the scriptures. If we only knew how easy it was to recall the scriptures when necessary, we would never spend another day fussing … Continue Reading Unlocking the Gifts – Part 2
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” (Mark 9:23). When Jesus said this, He was speaking to a man who was requesting healing for … Continue Reading Unlocking the Gifts – Part 1
“Hi I am John but my Hebrew name is Yochanan. Just like the Apostle John or John the Baptist. ” His face beamed with pride at the association.
I told him my name (only the first). He quickly gave me the Hebrew version and the meaning. I smiled in acknowledgement and thanked him. I loved his fervour. It was infectious. We were decades apart in age and maybe in dimness of view.
I sensed a deep love for the people of God. The light in his eyes told me that he loved the lessons gleaned from their lives. I felt a bit of sadness inside though. I felt lead to ask him: ” What has Yahweh said about you? What is your purpose, your destiny? What makes you unique?”
The psalmist David captures the wilderness journey of the people of God (YHVH) very profoundly in Psalm 107. The imagery he evokes is indicative of someone who deeply understands the journey through experience.
Before becoming King he had to survive the wilderness. He endured many days on the run from Saul. At times he dwelt in caves or the desert. He was anointed to be King. Saul, the reigning King, was rejected by God because of pride, stubbornness and disobedience. Yet God allowed him to continue living for many, many years while he pursued David to take his life.
As crazy as it seems, this was part of the preparation process to make David a great King. Why didn’t God just keep him in the palace? Isn’t that what is normally done to prepare a monarch? To prove His greatness, God does not do things how we would. He will expose you to where you are going (in David’s case the palace). Then he uses the University of the Wilderness to prepare us for where we are going.
In a previous article on May 5, 2015 I addressed the issue of the Prophet as God’s executioner. In this article I will examine how the prophetic has harmed some believers.
We serve a Living God. He desires to speak directly with ALL His children. Jesus Christ suffered and died to grant us legal access to the presence of God. The Holy Spirit was given to aid in the communication process; allowing us to fellowship with our Creator, once again.
Today a friend will be burying her mother. This is the second funeral I have not been able to attend in less than a month. My grandmother used to quip that ‘death comes in threes’. I do hope that there will not be another one soon.
These deaths have caused me to reflect very deeply on my experience during the time of my grandmother’s burial.
Before God sends us somewhere He provides. How we get there may not be easy but it is important that we are obedient. All the provisions will not be … Continue Reading Provision in the Desert
In February 2012 I found myself criticizing Bishop TD Jakes, as I watched a sermon on YouTube. I admired him and was thankful to God for him. His sermon, the … Continue Reading In defence of the Jet
