Astounding Rendition of “Mary, Did You Know?” by Pentatonix!


Humility Astounds the Room!


Roman 13:7 (NAS) reads: Render unto all what is due them: tax to whom is due; custom unto whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor.

Focusing on that last part — honor to whom honor — I want to recognize a couple who have influenced my life as a husband and father since the ’80s. Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family once called them “God’s minstrels to the family.” How true.

Circle of Two coverTo a generation that has probably not heard of them, or been ministered to by their music, I want to re-introduce Steve and Annie Chapman. Their music of healing and reconciliation to the family is second to none in my book. As I have listened to them over and over again for more than 25 years, the impact of their words continue to reach into the core of my being. As you discover them for yourself, may you sense the power in God’s ability to heal every difficult and impossible situation that confronts you.

You can find them online … but the one song I wish every household of fathers and sons would hear is this one: If You Leave a Hurt.

(Click HERE for the back story to the song). This song, like most of their pieces, comes from personal experience within their own home. Every man must hear this song! May the healing begin as every husband hears these words! It begin with us. It’s taken from 1Peter 3:7.

In his evening broadcast Thursday night, Jan. 8, KSBJ’s JP Spees told the story of a young newspaper delivery fellow who had a very noisy muffler on his car. Delivering papers at 4 in the morning didn’t sit well with the community who was long subjected to the sounds of his car rumbling through his early route. As the neighbors discussed their legal options in the matter, an idea came forth that not only changed the young man’s life, but that of the neighbors as well.

Couple Married 72 Years Dies Holding Hands

This story was aired over ABC news on Oct. 29, 2011 and was picked by other stations across the nation. I first saw it on Brad Witt’s Facebook page, and I share it now with all married couples everywhere. This kind of story has the glory of God all over it. Would that all marriages could share similar testimonies.

The Significance of the Folded Napkin

Christ's folded napkin

Christ’s folded napkin

Why did Jesus fold the linen burial cloth after His resurrection?

The Gospel of John (20: 7) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over the face of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like the grave clothes. The Bible takes an entire verse to tell us that the napkin was neatly folded, and was placed at the head of that stony coffin.

Why is that important?
In order to understand the significance of the folded napkin, you have to understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day. The folded napkin had to do with Master and Servant, and every Jewish boy knew this tradition.

When the servant set the dinner table for the master, he made sure that it was exactly the way the master wanted it. The table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just out of sight, until the master had finished eating, and the servant would not dare touch that table, until the master was finished.

Now, if the master was finished eating, he would rise from the table, wipe his fingers, his mouth, and clean his beard, and would wad up that napkin and toss it onto the table. The servant would then know to clear the table. For in those days, the wadded napkin meant, “I’m done.” But if the master got up from the table, and folded his napkin, and laid it beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table, because the servant knows that the folded napkin means, “I’m not finished yet.”

Even today, in some of the world’s most distinguished restaurants, that tradition is still in practice. In these dining establishments, the wait staff observes discretely when a customer leaves their table for any reason. As the customer disappears around the corner or through a door, the waiter quietly comes to the customer’s chair … and folds his napkin, signifying to all that the customer will be returning soon.

The folded napkin meant, “I’m coming back!”

Jesus is coming back! He folded His napkin!!

How Canada’s Intercessors Are Changing the Nation
Some call her a “30-something Jesus chick.” That doesn’t seem to bother her at all. It’s not about her anyway, she would say. “We are working with all our heart for laws that protect vulnerable people, create a culture that saves lives and create security for people,” says Faytene Grasseschi, the Canadian-born visionary founder and director of a movement in Canada known simply as The Cry. “It’s about shifting the spiritual atmosphere over a nation in a way that clears it for a greater move of God.”
Unexpectedly, she is having immense impact in the Canadian Parliament. Now, she has turned her eye toward Hollywood. See the full story at CharismaNews.com.
