Keys over Pandemic

by Lloyd Phillips

There’s a place in northern Israel where the Canaanites worshiped the god Baal (Judges 3:3). King Jeroboam of the northern kingdom of Israel set up an altar to Baal nearby. In time this whole region was known for pagan worship and Baal worship. Years later when the Greeks conquered the region they renamed the city […]

Separation of State from Church / Things That Matter

by Lloyd Phillips

In a recent discussion between church leaders I had an interesting thought after one of the men suggested that Christian leaders should not be involved in things that seem “political.” I had the thought, “What if we never spoke about political things, or religious things, again?” What I suggest is not to limit speech and […]

First in Peace and in War

by Lloyd Phillips

I had an interesting dream a while ago about a man who was an inventor. It was said about him that everything he invented was to be “first in peace and in war”. He had invented a new rifle cartridge which had become a national sensation. The new cartridge was called a .319 (Three Nineteen) […]

Righteous Judgment

by Lloyd Phillips

Righteous Judgment There is a much promoted misrepresentation from the teachings of Jesus that He taught we should never judge. This is an incongruous teaching. He did, in fact, teach His followers that they should be able to judge properly without being judgmental. He instructed them to first get the log out of their own […]

Diotrephes – the spirit that requires preeminence. Part 1 “Blessed by Satan” Some time ago while meeting with pastors of various congregations in our city, we were discussing the biblical viewpoint of one church, ecclesia, in a city or region. We see this throughout the New Testament where churches are addressed as “the church in […]

Give the Sword It’s Place

by Lloyd Phillips

Give the Sword It’s Place “Live by the Lord, not by the sword – but give the sword it’s place.” Once again we should consider looking back into our history in order to see how to navigate the dangers of the present. With the current fervor over the horrible shootings that we read about and […]

Tribute to Don Stephens 

by Lloyd Phillips

I’m writing this story with a with a bit of fear and trepidation. It’s because I’m so close to the story and there’s a lot of love and emotion involved in the telling of it. Yet I feel like I must share this in order to honor a fallen brother, who was a comrade in […]

Justice above Judges

by Lloyd Phillips

Justice above Judges On the night of Dec 2, 2018 I dreamt that I was with President Trump in the oval office. We had just finished up a meeting with him with a group of prophetic people who were with me (my guests). Before I left the office out of one door, another door opened […]
