SIT REPORT: Sheep and Goats- Wheat and Tares

At a great distance, it is very difficult to differentiate between sheep and goats gathered in one flock. Likewise, in a field of wheat, the tares (i.e., weeds that closely resemble wheat) are almost indistinguishable from far away. On closer inspection, however, within each of these groupings, the difference is clear and distinct. This is why the parables that Jesus told on these two subjects are so important to understand in regards to both current and Last Days missions. Read more...

SIT REPORT: An Urgently Needed Lesson

We live in the midst of an increasingly fractured society that is desperately searching for direction, stability, and love. At the same time, many believers are increasingly discouraged by current events and their subsequent consequences. In this present environment, a believers' testimony in Christ should be thriving and shining, as we exhibit a different Spirit within us compared to the world. But many times, we lose sight of this reality and inadvertently fall back into "pre-born again" thinking and acting. Read more...

SIT REPORT: God is Still at Work- Hunger

Over the last couple of months, I have been outlining for you the five main factors that characterize the current outpouring of the Holy Spirit, sparked in part by the COVID-19 pandemic. Key leadership within the national church worldwide continues to sense that God is sending a message to His Church today regarding: * Contentment * Humility * Compassion * Urgency * Insatiable Hunger for God's Word Read more...

SIT REPORT: God is Still at Work- Urgency

The word “urgency” is comprised of two concepts: time, and the gravity of a situation. The dictionary defines it as "importance requiring swift action." God’s loving concern for humankind’s sinful situation has a sense of urgency which He makes clear in the Bible: Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says, “Today if you hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as when they provoked Me, As in the day of trial in the wilderness.” (Hebrews 3:7, 8 NASB) Read more...

SIT REPORT: God is Still at Work-Compassion

One of the most overlooked indicators of a spiritual awakening is compassion, which can be defined as the "sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others." The Bible often speaks of God’s great compassion, and I’ve chosen a few examples to share with you: The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. (Psalm 116:5 NASB)He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy he will save. (Psalm 72:13 NASB) Read more...

SIT REPORT: God is Still at Work- Humility

Today's topic is humility that is accompanied by brokenness.

SIT REPORT: God is Still at Work- Contentment

Many Christians firmly believe that the latest world developments prove that we are close to the return of Christ, or at least that this pandemic was a very strong birth pang leading up to the end (Matthew 24:8). Others believe that this is the beginning of a massive outpouring of the Holy Spirit—a revival of biblical and epic proportions (Matthew 24:14; Joel 2:28-32). And lastly, a growing number of Christians are looking at this in a more personal way. They are asking themselves, "What is God telling me to do with my life? What needs changing? Where should my priorities lie going forward?" Read more...

There are billions of devout, religious people around the world who are literally “scared to death” of dying. All the great world religions and their offshoot philosophies promise peace like a river, but none of them—no not one—can satisfy the human soul when it approaches eternity. Read more...
