Prophetic Word: "You Hear Perfectly!"


In prayer this week, I felt the Lord's desire to know His people - really know us, intimately. Sometimes we think this isn't possible because it seems so hard to hear Him. Into this difficulty, God desires to speak hope, because from His perspective, things look VERY different! The following words are what He gave me to share with you.  - See more at:

Have Smartphones Replaced God?

9651021884?profile=originalThere’s no denying it: smartphones are, well, smart. Nifty and immensely helpful gadgets, they seem to do everything we need: connect us to our peeps, answer all our questions, and guide us to our destinations. We grab them when we wake up, and fall asleep with them in our hands. (See infographic, below). We drive with them, keep track of our kids with them, and work better with them. As a nation, we have become addicted to the kind of personal technology that helps us live life, lose weight, look smart, and keep up with the daily grind – yet still fits in our pocket. There really isn’t much a smartphone can’t do – and we like that – a lot!

For those of Judeo-Christian backgrounds, however, the smartphone explosion looks uncannily like a scripture passage in Deuteronomy 6. It reads: 
And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” 

(Deuteronomy 6:6-9, NKJV).

It doesn’t take a rabbi or a theologian to see that the kind of interaction we have with our smartphones today is the kind of interaction God designed for us to have with Him. Wearable technology – the kind you “bind upon your hand” – is becoming the newest trend, and Google has even created GoogleGlass ™, which looks eerily like the above statement about “frontlets between your eyes.”

PTAP: The "Power" of the Quran

The Quran is written in beautiful poetic Arabic. Those that hear it in Arabic say it flows. The Quran has an especially strong grip on Muslims. The actual book is to be treated with great respect. To translate it into other languages should not be done. Arabian Peninsula Muslims honor the Quran, but few know it well or have read it. It seems amazing that the Quran is treated so well, but few Muslims know it well. The paper and ink seem to be what is important, not so much the meaning of the words on the page. Pray that the way the Quran traps the Peoples of the Arabian Peninsula would be removed from their hearts. Pray that the Word of God, the Bible, would not just be a good book or a corrupted book, but the Bible would be for them the very words of God. Pray that the Bible would communicate God's love for the peoples of the world and the people of the Arabian Peninsula.

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
