Jesus, now in His resurrected body, is preparing to leave His disciples. During the 40 days He was with them, before His ascension, He taught them many things. On this particular morning, He's having a very private, intimate and revealing conversation...
I'm back!!I'm so sorry to have been gone so long! I have been in God's training camp, preparing for the next season of ministry and that included the last 6 months of Clinical Pastoral Education as a Chaplain Intern at the world renowned Johns Hopkins Hospital - Bayview Medical Center!
This accomplishment has such special meaning in this season of preparation. Over the past 8 months, I endured one of the most challenging experiences in my health. God brought me through immunizations, ministry due to death in the family, a blood clot, a biopsy and finally major surgery. It was HIS GRACE that brought me through! I know I was smack dab in the middle of God's will because of the great lengths the enemy went to try to stop me!
When God calls you, move. Trust God, no matter what comes. Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world! We are MORE than conquerors through Him who loves us and gave Himself for us!!
STAY TUNED! More revelation to come!

Will the Real Church Please Stand Up? Matt. 16:13-16
Jesus asked the disciples, "Who do men say that I am? They responded with different answers, but Peter said, "Thou art the Christ - the Son of the Living God." Jesus said, "Flesh and blood did not reveal that to you." Jesus went on to say "Upon this rock, I will build my Church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it." The foundation on which His Church would be built is the Revelation of Who He is - to those who know His true identity.
He was talking about true believers: with the strength of so many, so powerful, that the all the power/demons from hell will not prevail against it. The works of darkness will never defeat those who “know” Him!
You either build your house on a rock, or on sand. On Christ, The Solid Rock I Stand; All Other Ground is Sinking Sand.
It is said, "Only what we build for Christ will last. But I say, "Only what we build ON Christ will last. On what foundation are you building?
