“Drive Away the Birds of Prey”

A few days ago, I looked up to notice there were about 4 or 5 blackbirds sitting all around one of the bird feeders outside my home office window. There were no other birds present, which was rare, just the blackbirds. Their presence was very different than when the cardinals, for example, come to visit.…

My Experience with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

Right now, we are in that same period of time of “waiting” as the disciples were.

Raleigh Coming Back to Life

When my family and I first moved to the Raleigh, NC area, (three years ago this July) I began asking God to give me prophetic insight as to what He originally had in mind for this area, and what, prophetically, He wanted to do now. I researched the history of the city, pulled out maps,…
