The Next Move of God

nickipfeiferOne of the biggest dangers Christians face is thinking
inside the proverbial religious box. When we talk about “a great move of God”
or “revival” we often contextualize it inside a church building. We get visions
of people coming to a facility, worshipping God, hearing a fiery evangelist and
flooding the altar for prayer.

Even when we take it “to the streets” it still looks a lot
like it does inside the church walls. We speak to people using the same
language and pray for them just like we do in church, except that the setting
has changed.

2011: The Time Is Now!

2011: The Time Is Now!

nickipfeiferIt is imperative that the body of Christ accurately discern
the times and seasons we find ourselves in.  As the sons of Issachar, we
too, must be aware of not only what God is doing at the moment, but we must be
aware of what is looming before us.

I have been listening intently
to what the Spirit of the Lord is saying for this hour.  As we enter into
2011, I believe God in His goodness, is giving us insight and direction for the
upcoming season.

Evaluate Your Relationships

Evaluate Your Relationships

Nicki PfeiferWhen God wants to bless you, He brings people into
your life. When Satan wants to destroy you, he brings people into your life.
And sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference.

We are in a season in
which God wants to strengthen kingdom relationships. God wants us engaged in
relationships that are healthy and productive, not burdensome and destructive.

There are basically two
types of relationships: those that build up your life and those that destroy
your life. Healthy relationships add to your life, bringing increase and
blessing to you. Unhealthy relationships tear you down, drain you, and seek to
divide you from God and the destiny He has for you.

When Your Kids Talk Dirty

 

For Christians, the worst consequence of vulgarity’s ubiquity may be the influence upon children.

 

“All children, whether they swear or not, learn what the words are that they’re not supposed to use,” says author Timothy Jay, who also is a psychology professor at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.

Sometimes teens must learn that words matter by going too far, such as being kicked out of a restaurant or fired from a job for using vulgarity, Jay says. Yet enforcing rules is more difficult when many of the rich and powerful–movie stars, athletes and politicians–use vulgar words with impunity.

 

Violence Aimed at Kids

A study by the Federal Trade Commission released suggests that video game marketers and movie studios don’t take seriously the entertainment industry’s own self-regulation when it comes to keeping kids away from mature material.

Have a Steaming Cup o’ Death?

It’s not the javaholics in danger now—it’s the occasional sippers.

Just when we thought coffee was safe again, now cardiologists are saying that the occasional after-dinner cup of coffee is worse for the heart than drinking it every day.

The research is the first to show that the surge in blood pressure that a noncoffee-drinker experiences is worse than the potential long-term effects on a coffee addict.
