Leadership and Setting Things Right

Sometimes, it becomes incumbent on a leader to correct problems. That corrective action may be painful for the leader to execute and may lead to pain and loss for others, an organization, and a culture, but ultimately, it results in improvement. The leader has to use the power of his/her position or their referential/assumed power…

Unity and The End-Time Church

This is the third and final post in this series on the end-time church. In the previous post, we reviewed the functions of the end-time church in the Kingdom of God. We are not, as leaders and Kingdom messengers, to sit idly by waiting on the rapture during the latter days. Don’t get me wrong,…

The Picture of The End-Time Church

This is post # 2 of 3 on the prophecy and function of the end-time church. The book of Revelations gives a clear picture of the churches we can expect to see and are experiencing today as we hurdle toward the end times. The church of Ephesus can be compared to many of today’s mainline…

Prophecy of The End-Time Church

There is a special church in our future. This church was prophesied approximately 700 years before Christ’s birth. It is the church of the latter days on this earth. When it will be established in its fullness, I do not know. I have a strong sense it is in its developmental stages and may be…

Actually, it is likely more accurate to say that…

What We Need Is Change—spelled R-E-V-I-V-A-L

Change is not easy. However, I enjoyed change management and built a 40-year career on disruption and managing change in healthcare. But the change we need now is different. This is change with an eternal purpose. God the Father moved to make a change in me and to revive my Spirit toward Him. A personal…

Your Mt. Horeb Experiences = Preparation for The Next Level

The development of this post has been a God moment, teaching me patience. It has been in development for several days, maybe weeks. But, if we are going to be leaders, especially in this current world and in the Ekklesia, we need to seek guidance from our leader, God, and wait for the answer. Not…

The Importance of Truth

Leadership requires the willingness and capability to speak the truth in all situations. This becomes more important when the economic, cultural, and situational conditions worsen. Recently, I was studying the parable of the ten virgins in Chapter 25 of the Gospel of Matthew. Like many passages, I had read this parable several times, but the…
