ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: OUR FOREFATHERS’ COVENANTS, Part 25

Let’s take a different course in today’s Coffee Break talking about the author of our national anthem, lawyer Francis Scott Key, and a brief picture of what he saw and experienced as he wrote The Star Spangled Banner. We all know the name, Francis Scott Key, but few know much else about him other than his famous anthem. Born August 1, 1779 at the family plantation -- Terra Rubra -- near Keymar, Maryland, Francis Scott Key was both an American lawyer and an amateur poet.

ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: OUR FOREFATHERS’ COVENANTS, Part 24

As you will see in today’s discussions, founding father and signer of the Declaration of Independence, Benjamin Rush, was a genius of the highest order. Gifted by God, he put those gifts to work and blessed both this nation and other nations as well. The signs and symbols, the Scripture references that abound in our founding fathers' commentaries, and their labors of love and covenant to establish this great nation make abundantly clear that they purposed to have "one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: OUR FOREFATHERS’ COVENANTS, Part 23

As has already been noted, Alexander Hamilton was a man of faith, a man with an implicit trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. The tragedy today is that the truths surrounding all of our nation’s founding fathers has been scrubbed from our educational system, beginning in the first grade of grammar school and continuing on into our colleges and universities. Before we move on to discuss the life of Benjamin Rush, let me wrap up our discussions on Alexander Hamilton and then deviate for a little bit to talk about the Liberty Bell, and the significance it played in our nation’s founding.

ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: OUR FOREFATHERS’ COVENANTS, Part 22

We concluded last week’s Coffee Break beginning our discussion concerning Alexander Hamilton. Most people who study Economics and Banking know that Hamilton was essentially the father of our current economic system. What most people do not know is just how Covenant oriented he was, and how that orientation affected both his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, as well as the integral place faith had in the formation of our government.

ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: Deliver Us From Evil, Part 14

Last week, we started off a bit differently than we have in the past, and this week’s Coffee Break is no different. Last week, we dealt with the effect of curses, and the non-effect of causeless curses. This week, let’s talk about deliverance from the need to compromise. In Psalm 122:6, David writes, "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek thy good."

ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: Deliver Us From Evil, Part 13

"As the sparrow in her wandering, as the swallow in her flying, so the causeless curse shall not alight."  (Proverbs 26:2, Amplified Version) "How can I curse those God has not cursed? Or how can I [violently] denounce those the LORD has not denounced?"  (Numbers 23:8, Amplified Version) Today I'd like to take a few minutes and share with you some of my own personal experiences in the realm of causeless curses. Some of what I share you’ve heard me share previously, so bear with me if you’ve read it or heard it before. Anyway, Good Morning, all you Blessed People! Sorta got started there a bit different than normal. Pull up a chair, set a spell, and pour yourself a cup of this good Columbian brew.

ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: Deliver Us From Evil, Part 12

We have talked on numerous occasions in the past about the Spirit of Jezebel, and how that spirit has invaded the body of Christ. The common misconception is that refers strictly to women who aree afflicted by this spirit. Not so! I have personally seen more men afflicted by this spirit than I have women.   Let me start off today with a prophecy that John gives in Revelation 2 to the Ekklesia in Thyatira:

ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: Deliver Us From Evil, Part 11

In our last study on this topic, we began doing a breakdown and pursuit of understanding the various words that are translated in the Old and New Testaments — Hebrew and Greek — that are either translated “witchcraft” or “sorcery” or one of the variants that are part of the whole genre of witchcraft in general.   We wrapped up taking a look at the word pharmakeia, which is one of the primary words translated witchcraft in the New Testament, and specifically translates as: “to enchant with drugs.” I want to move on today with another one of these 64-dollar words from the Greek that are part and parcel of witchcraft or sorcery.

ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: Dealing With The Spirit of Poverty, Part 5

We wrapped up last week with the statement that Jesus wasn’t poor. In fact, Jesus had to be among the wealthiest individuals of that era. Consider how he began his life. At age two, when the magi came to visit him and pay honor and tribute to the “King of Kings,” they brought gold, frankincense and myrrh.
