  • BAPTIZED IN THE FIRE!

    Posted on February 13, 2015 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    Luke 3:16-17: “John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I comes, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, […]

  • Never Give Up!

    Posted on February 1, 2015 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    Have you ever been faced with the reality that what you have dreamed for, hoped for and prayed for will never happen? Has the giving up reaction in this one event spread into every corner of your life, effectively killing your faith in the unfailing love of God? Have you been seduced into believing that […]

  • Finding Common Ground

    Posted on January 14, 2015 by Dan Beaty in Christian Living.

    The rapid and convenient spread of information these days has forced me to see how many more divergent streams of Christianity exist in our day. We seem to be finding more reasons to be divided that I could have ever thought possible! Now I am not suggesting that every disagreement among the followers of Christ […]

  • Suffering and the Will of God

    Posted on January 11, 2015 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    Over 40 years ago I experienced a life-crisis through a failed marriage which I did everything in my power to save. This was the most painful time I had ever experienced in my life. Feelings of helplessness brought me to my knees before the Lord, and I rededicated my heart to Him one night in […]

    From the beginning of time every culture has had its heroes to inspire them. People have always been thrilled to tell and listen to stories of adventures both real and fictional. These are our heroes who have overcome impossible odds with courage, skill, and character that are almost superhuman. There is something about this […]

  • UNDERSTANDING THE WILL OF GOD: Part 3

    Posted on December 14, 2014 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    There is probably a great number of opinions on what the will of God would be in any given situation. If you ask five people you might possibly get five different answers. Out of those five it is highly possible that two or more could be very certain and even dogmatic in their opposing views. […]

  • UNDERSTANDING THE WILL OF GOD: Part 2

    Posted on December 10, 2014 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    As we continue in this subject of understanding the will of God, we must become rooted in one fact. God definitely wants us to know His will, even though it often seems hidden from us. The question remains, however, “Why then does it seem at times so difficult for us to discover, or to discern […]

  • UNDERSTANDING THE WILL OF GOD: Part 1

    Posted on December 4, 2014 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    Many of us have come to appreciate the importance of living in the will of God. Perhaps we learned this after having made a poor decision which bred a disastrous outcome. There are many motives people may have, but the real value in knowing His will is the peace of mind we can enjoy as […]

  • God is Now!

    Posted on November 26, 2014 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    Many of us on this planet have certain common long and short term concerns. Those who have been called by God to come out of the thinking and lifestyles of the world often have difficulty in reconciling our concerns with those of the Lord Himself. After many years I have become persuaded that God does […]

  • Rethinking Spiritual Warfare

    Posted on November 22, 2014 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    Is the devil real? It is interesting how present experiences can influence our point of view on this question. In the early seventies I had an experience that impressed upon me how great our God in Jesus Christ truly is. Even though I was saved in my teens, it was not until then that I […]

  • Living on the Edge!

    Posted on November 21, 2014 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    In an effort to sell soft drinks, advertisers have attempted to associate their products with exciting and dangerous sports such as skiing, parachuting, and mountain climbing. The implication is that real men love to face death for the sheer thrill of it. There should be no doubt that the powerful soft drink companies of America […]

  • The Pleasure of the Lord

    Posted on November 6, 2014 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    In the parables of Jesus, we saw men who were concerned about the hardness of the master. These hoped to fulfill the least possible requirements, and to so preserve their security. But the fruitful were more concerned about the pleasure of their master. They took risks that others would not, knowing that He would be […]

  • What IF?

    Posted on November 1, 2014 by Dan Beaty in Audio/Video, Christian Living, Podcasts.

    If. Such a very small word. Just two letters. But the meaning contained in these two letters could lead to either life or death. They could become an open door to endless possibilities, or perhaps spell perpetual gloom and darkness. I wonder, could we take the time to explore the power of the word, “if,” […]
