2017: Becoming Intimately Acquainted with God!

My husband and I just celebrated in Nov (2016) our 50th Wedding Anniversary!  When I married him, I had known him for about 3-years, first as a friend of my friend, and then when we decided to “date” (if that’s what you call going to church together and spending time mostly with my family) … we definitely got to know each other better! We interacted and observed each other with family, friends, etc. And I liked what I saw! However, after 50-years I can say I TRULY KNOW AARON GLENN ARTT very well! I know what he means...

Three Wise Women of Christmas

Three Wise Women of Christmas

You have heard it said that there were 3 Wise Men at the birth of Jesus. But that is not so! Now these men were “wise” – we’ll give them that! Since the scriptures says so. But they left the East at the time of the appearing of the Star which indicated the birth of Christ. Their travels had taken them many days and when they arrived (wherever it was) they went to the house (v.11) where the Child and His mother were. Matt.2:1-16 – (v.16) “When Herod saw that he had been tricked by the magi, he became very enraged, and sent and slew all the...

GLORY “BREAK-OUT” EVERYWHERE IN THE EARTH!

GLORY “BREAK-OUT” EVERYWHERE IN THE EARTH!

“The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, As the waters cover the sea,” (Habakkuk.2:14) I am hearing reports of “Glory Break-Out” everywhere – and I’m hearing of preachers preaching about the GLORY OF GOD all around! Yes! Yes! Interesting that even from the Creation the Father spoke of His “Glory,” and Exodus records that the “glory of the Lord appeared in the clouds.” But NOW just as the prophet wrote many are “acknowledging His Glory”...

THE HEART OF THE MATTER

THE HEART OF THE MATTER

“God raised Jesus from death and set Him on a throne in deep heaven, in charge of running the universe, everything from galaxies to governments, no name and no power exempt from His rule. “And not just for the time being, but forever. He is in charge of it all, has the final word on everything. At the center of all this, Christ rules the Church. The church, you see, is not peripheral to the world; the world is peripheral to the church. “The church is Christ’s Body, in which He speaks and acts, by which He fills everything with His Presence” ...

INSTEAD!

INSTEAD!

Disempower Your Disappointments! Instead of seeing things negatively, recognize that INSTEAD – God is turning all those things around for His glory – and it will be in your favor – because that is His plan to bless you and give you His blessings!  “INSTEAD of shame and dishonor, you will enjoy a double share of honor. You will possess a double portion of prosperity … and everlasting joy will be yours.” (Is.61:7) That has been His plan all along – not to punish or defeat you – but to show Himself mighty on your behalf! (Psalm.68:28) Perhaps...

THE NEED FOR NAKEDNESS

THE NEED FOR NAKEDNESS

Guest Article by Dr. Kluane Spake       http://kluane.com At the center of the created universe, the first couple stood as the crowning glory of creation — naked and unashamed. The Lord God looked at that naked couple and said it was “GOOD.” There are times when being naked are in God’s perfect will. It all points back to the fact that naked humanity was created in God’s image and likeness. Of course, we know that consciousness of sin came at the Fall and the need to cover their shame with leaves and then skins immediately seemed necessary....

The Mind of Christ: Part 2

The Hypnotist “Who can know the Lord’s thoughts? … But we can understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ.” (1Corinthians.2:15-56) “We … echo the mind of Christ; He is the Master mind personified within us!” (Mirror Bible) It’s nearly 10 o’clock on Thursday evening following my kidnapping and rape, and though we were still struggling with the emotions and hurts of the past few days, our family had just concluded our evening Bible Study and prayer. It seemed important to keep the family schedule as normal as possible, and so we...

You Are The General Store

You Are The General Store

Jesus said, “Then you see how every student well-trained in God’s Kingdom is like the owner of a general store who can put his hands on anything you need, old or new, exactly when you need it.” (Matt.13:52-Msg) The Son of the Kingdom of God produces from his stores. He has stores! These are both conscious and unconscious. We keep storing up in the sub-conscious mind, daily, hourly, momentarily – a good store if we are in the Kingdom and the Kingdom is in us! That good store becomes a reserve upon which we can call when in the hour of testing...

A MOTHER’S HEART – 2016

A MOTHER’S HEART … While just a young child, my “children” were many I’d line them all up and make sure that any … of them who were mine didn’t repine And think that my love was confined … ~ To just one.  The more the merrier was always my way And though they were many we’d always play That new ones were coming and we had to see That they were accepted and loved tenderly ~ Not left alone. Then in my twenties it happened again In six years my children were five – but when Each one came along I’d love them and say The next one that comes...

Part 2:  The Unshakeable Kingdom /     The Unchanging Person

The Unshakeable Kingdom The Unchanging Person – Part 2 ~ Notes from Message by Pastor Shelia Artt – Mar. 20, 2016 @ Cross Roads Ministries, Branson MO. “Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” (Matt.6:33) If Jesus made the Kingdom of God the center of His message and the center of His endeavor, the GREATEST NEED OF MAN … is to rediscover the Kingdom of God. Man needs an absolute! He knows everything about life – except how to live it! We need nothing so...
