Why Christians must use Television

Sometime in 2004 I was praying and meditating on the Word, especially the passage in Ezekiel 33:1-6

Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and say to them: ‘When I bring a sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman, when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people, then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blo

Why the Media is So Important for Us

Following on from the thought that all believers may be anointed to minister reconciliation and communicate by the power of the Holy Spirit, I want to say that it is important for us to use appropriate means in order to fulfil the Great Commission – to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations. Jesus told us to preach the gospel to all Creation.

The Priesthood of All Believers and Church Leadership

God has always worked through leaders in the lives of his people. From the beginning, as soon as God had a people, he raised up leaders amongst them through whom His redemptive purposes were accomplished. We had Joseph, Moses, Samson, David, Solomon, the Kings of Israel, the prophets and the priests. Jesus Christ came as a priest in the order of Melchizedek. He came as Prophet, Priest and King – the ultimate anointed one.

In the Old Testament only some people were anointed by the Holy Spirit. Prophets, priests and Kings were all specially anointed by God.

God uses even homosexual prostitutes

Yes, folks, it has come to this, that our Sovereign God has seen fit to use a homosexual prostitute to help bring discernment and truth to His own church. And He has done it in the most public way.

This is actually the mercy of God. Without this kind of exposure it is questionable whether the church would have ever had the courage to deal with such issues. For we all know, that to VOLUNTEER such information generally spells death to our religious careers, the financial and lifestyle benefits we enjoy as “senior servants of God”.

The “Fall from Grace” of Pastor Ted Haggard

Update July 2009: It seems that Ted Haggard has repented of his sin. Please visit
this insightful interview by Lee Grady. One person I really admire in this is Ted’s wife Gayle who has stood by him and behaved like a real Christian woman.

Judgment on America?

The congressional elections are coming up in America in a couple of days, and many evangelical Christians will be hoping that the Republicans will win. Republicans are seen as more Christian by a lot of evangelicals and so they tend to give their vote to the Republicans. Because I have a Christian website I get spam mail from Republican political activists, I get on their mailing lists and so on.

Are you a good person?

Are You a Good Person? If good people go to heaven when they die, how good do you have to be to be good enough to go to heaven?

Selfish Prosperity Doctrines

The Word of God does teach that the Lord delights in the prosperity of His servant (Psalm 35:27). But it also teaches that “whoever has this world’s goods and sees his brother having need, and shuts up his bowels from him, how does the love of God dwell in him?” (1 John 3:17).

The Church and Secular Governments

What should be the guiding principles behind the relationship of the church with secular governments? Should the church seek to control the government, or should the church seek to support the government in the interest of nationalism (or internationalism)? Should the church seek to influence government policy and draft laws for the betterment of society? Should the church seek government finances in order to expand its social programs? How can we tell if a government is truly worthy of our support?

The joy of teaching God’s Word

I thank God for giving me the opportunity to teach the Word of God on TV. We set up a new studio today and things seem to be working out. It was a great provision to have the place made available to us. So now the aim is to preach and teach on prayer and submission to God, so that God can raise up powerful intercessors and prayer warriors across India. Its also gratifying to hear that so many people are watching the channel.
