Experiencing the Emotions of God

Does God have emotions? Yes! And did you know that you can experience the emotions of God? Of course, God does not have fickle feelings and whimsical moods, nor is He influenced unduly by the condition of the worlds He has created. You can be sure that He never experiences PMS (Prophetic Mood Swings)! God does not sit in heaven worrying over our earthly condition, wringing His hands with sweaty palms. I don’t believe there is ever a conversation within the Godhead where something is said along the lines of, “Oh My, what are We going to do?” Yet, in Scripture, we [...]

Worshiping God through Uncertain Times

Today’s world is filled with so many uncertainties!  Life seems to be more like a turbulent roller coaster ride with no clear end in sight rather than a nice walk in the park! Many things are not turning out the way we thought they would. We have a lot of choices to make in how we live our lives in the midst of on-going issues such as: COVID-19 • Political Unrest • Chaos & Confusion • Economic Upheaval • Social Media Censorship • Values in Education and many other major issues. I have personally lived through a lot of times of uncertainties. [...]

Treasures from GEM: Raising Up Warriors of Hope in our Nation’s Prisons

"Freely We Have Received—Now Freely We GIVE" The Lord has called us at God Encounters Ministries to be good stewards of the riches and treasures He has given us. In fact, two years ago, you helped us establish a new expression of GEM Missions, "Treasures from GEM." Together, we gave away HUNDREDS of books and discipleship materials to prison ministries, funeral homes for grieving families, parental care ministries, homeless ministries, various outreaches and so much more. The Holy Spirit has laid it on our heart to do it again! Warriors of Hope Arise! We want to do our part in raising up Warriors of Hope to be Beacons [...]

How to Properly Steward Prophecy

Much has been said in recent weeks regarding prophecy and its accuracy in the body of Christ. My intention in this article is not to call into question any particular prophetic word given or its interpretation or application—but rather it is to give solid scriptural principles by which we can grow and mature in stewarding prophetic revelation, interpretation and application moving forward. Years ago, when I was in Kansas City with Mike Bickle and others, Bill Hamon (a mature prophet who is the founder of an extensive ministry called Christian International) taught us about the meaning and importance of these three basic [...]

Wisdom: What the Body of Christ Needs in This Hour

In a season of increased tensions, heightened emotions and political turmoil, the prophetic movement and the body of Christ at large needs to exercise wisdom. Wisdom: What the Prophetic Movement Needs in this Pivotal Hour The Spirit of Wisdom is one of the seven Spirits of God as wisdom is one of the primary qualities or characteristics of God’s Holy Spirit. He is wisdom personified, and “God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself ” (1 Cor. 1:30, NLT). To exist above the turmoil in the days in which we live, increased wisdom is needed [...]

The Power of Prophetic Intercession

While the term is not found anywhere in the pages of scripture, “prophetic intercession” is powerful because it allows you to lean into the heart of God and then pray His heart back to Him in accordance with His will. Finding Words for Scriptural Principles As far as I know, airplanes are not in the Bible. School buses and bicycles are not mentioned, either. The book of Leviticus does not say anything pro or con about contact lenses or television. The term “trinity” is not found anywhere in the Bible. Were you aware of that? “God in Three Persons, Blessed Trinity.” It’s in [...]
