The Generation of Dry Bones

Recently at a worship service the Lord began speaking to me about the calling He has for this generation. While there are many problems and issues to be faced, that doesn't mean God doesn't want and isn't planning to use those who are so often referred to as lazy and unmotivated. Just the opposite. Over and over again in scripture He does some of His greatest work through the least likely sources.

I share this word as a calling out to those who need to be stirred up. I share it as encouragement to those who feel like they're unworthy. I share it as the cry of my heart and, I believe, the cry of God's heart as well.

Closer to the void, eternity approaches. Time itself runs low, like a video tape coming to an end.
 
The urgency increases. The work to be done is still great. The generations that remain are few. But so much is left to do.
 
Multitudes stand in the valley of decision. Daily many step into the vastness of eternity--hopeless and lost. To what end? It is because My Bride is not prepared. She has not readied herself for the coming of her Beloved. Even so, the Bridegroom moves, ready to take possession of that which He has long awaited, and long desired.
 
Generation of dry bones, rise again and live! I call you forth. I sent you as fresh and alive into the world with My light within you. Somehow you have squandered the oil of My anointing seeking after comfort and pleasure...calling it faith. Yet it is not faith in Me or faith that comes from Me. My faith is in the great day when I will be able to behold my Bride, full and complete and ready to receive Me. You have become lifeless and dead, just as the dead bones Ezekiel saw. Yet I call you back to life, for there is work to be done. The end has not yet arrived, and there are those who have not stepped into eternity who I desire. Yes, a great many.
 
So I call forth this generation to be the Great Generation. The Game-changing Generation. The Generation to Fulfill the purposes others have fallen short of fulfilling. Arise, you who are My chosen. Arise you who are my Beloved. Arise you who are My appointed. For now is the time of your fulfilling destiny.

You have wondered at your purpose. You have said 'Maybe the Lord wants this of me' or 'Maybe I will do this to serve Him.'
Now is the appointed time to arise in new faith. Focused faith. Determined faith. For as the time grows ever shorter the resistance increases all the more.
 
But do not lose hope. hold fast to the confession of your faith and arise in My power and for the glory of My name. Arise, that which has been dead and dormant and be alive and filled with the freshness of the latter rain of My Spirit.
 
Arise and go forth. Stand at the edge of the void and declare with boldness the way of Truth. For there is only one way.
 
And receive with me the fulfillment of the Promise of the Father, who has appointed you to the Kingdom for such a time as this.

5 Fights Couples Have When Buying a House

When my wife and I bought our home in the Northern Kentucky area, it was quite an experience. We had a great Realtor® with whom I am now privileged to work. I can only imagine the things he must have thought about us, showing up to look at houses with our two young boys, talking about if a room was big enough...what was that smell...why would they put the switch over here...

Ah, those were the days!

Thankfully, we didn't actually fight (that I remember) about anything considering a house. We both had a concept together of what we wanted, and a price range. And outside of those things, I didn't care as long as she was happy. No really, I didn't! As long as I could have air conditioning and hot water, I was good!

However, that is not the experience everyone has.

Today, I am actually going to share a link that will take you to Realtor.com. The article was written earlier this year by Stephanie Barth, a writer, and contributor to several publications. She took this concept of…

The Top 10: Children's Resources

There are MANY things that can be used in Children's Ministry. Even at home in a family setting, it can be overwhelming to decide what material you use, what devotion book, or even what worship resource. So, in an effort to provide you with some usable resources, I would like to offer my top 10 Children's Ministry resources. No company has paid for this endorsement in any way, these are just resources I have used in ministry and think would be helpful, either for other Children's Ministry folks, or parents at home!

10-Veggie Tales
     These wonderful CGI creations sing, dance, do comedy, and provide great lessons in character that kids young and old enjoy. While the songs can be very annoying for adults, we understand that using Veggie Tales isn't about our likes, its about conveying spiritual truth to kids in a way they understand and can get it. And I also have been pleasantly surprised by the newest releases, which have been copies of classic tales (Sweet Pea Beauty…

Tips for Emergency Evacuation Planning

As I write this post, there is a lot of flooding in our area (I try to stay ahead and have posts ready to go in advance!). It's been raining for the majority of the past week across much of the area, and the ground is saturated. The rivers and streams are reaching flood stage. The news and local authorities are suggesting that people near waterways and in low-lying areas be ready to evacuate if needed.

No one wants to have to evacuate due to an emergency. Many people never consider needing to. That is a mistake.

I can remember the floods in the early 90's along the Mississippi River that caused major flooding, wiping out entire towns. My home was safe in the middle of a field, but the town where I went to school sits along whats called the Sangamon River. I remember being 10 or 11 and asking to go help fill sandbags to surround our one and only grocery store as the water crept closer and closer.

Having a plan on what to do and where to go in the event of an emergency, specifi…
