Revival in the Word was on the air for over 27 years on WJJM Radio.  I am thankful to the Lord for all the messages that have been laid upon my heart (still are) and for the divine anointing of God's Spirit!  I thank WJJM for being a gracious host to Revival in the Word for so many years.

I desire to share some of my latest messages.  I do not do this as a denominational effort but simply to be obedient to God's direction as to what He would have brought before His people.  I am so grateful that God's Spirit has never failed to give me weekly messages; and continues to do so on the Weekly Audio Podcast of "Revival in the Word." 

A HEALTHY NATION may not seem within grasp in a world of chaos, division, hatred, and lack of unity, but when God is put first it is possible.  As hatred is funneled into the picture it often creates more in return; breaking any chance of reconciliation.....Read More

FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY is a real issue as one sees man's feeble efforts to bring peace.  We are living in dangerous times that elude peace in many countries in the world.  There is unrest and turmoil; and America is not excluded......Read More

FORM OF GODLINESS will not carry one through the difficult days ahead.  There are those who profess Christianity but lack the spiritual fortitude to see them through the difficulties of life.....Read More

HOLY GHOST AND POWER is not being sought after as in the great Holy Ghost revivals in the past; with spiritual awakenings taking place.  God's Word reveals that the Holy Ghost (or God's Spirit) will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.....Read More

INIQUITY SHALL ABOUND (LAWLESSNESS) is an absence of moral or spiritual values; morally objectionable behavior, lack of uprightness with an ungoverned appetite.  It is also lawless disorder; defiance of the law, not subject or restrained by the law, entertaining civil disturbance and willful disobedience.....Read More

MYSTICAL BABYLON equates to modern day happenings as foretold in the Book of Revelations.  The prophet Isaiah pronounced a heavy sentence on Babylon of his day; which will also be the destiny of mystical Babylon.....Read More

RETURN TO GOD is of extreme necessity if one has withdrawn!  We are seeing devastation in the world that has shaken the very foundation of many hearts and lives; many having lost sight of a heavenly Father that is able to bring relief to the most stressed life.....Read More

RIVER OF LIFE from God was an encouragement to a sinful people.  It takes the hand of God to break the yoke of bondage of sin; to bring repentance.  Then, and only then, can God begin to restore His former blessings and nourish His people in His ways......Read More

TARGET OF ADVERSITY is dominate in many lands; for we live in a time of adversity, with many voices attempting to lead in a provocative way towards upsetting the norm of on-standing policies that have proven effective over the years.....Read More

TIME TO HEAL is needful in many lands that have been torn apart by hatred, division, and political disunity.  God's Word reveals the moral, ethical, and spiritual precepts that should be manifested in such a case; and the result for not doing so......Read More

VOICES OF DISSENSION ring a distinct sound; some to the tune of social injustice, others towards the demise of godly and just ways of life.  There has been an influx of the latter category in an attempt to alter the clarity of values of yesteryear.....Read More

WELLS WITHOUT WATER are obviously of no value; but its outward structure, at first glance, may give hope to the one who seeks to quench their thirst; especially in a condition of drought in the land.....Read More

WIND OF CHANGE reflects on an abundance of change from the past to the present.  There is increased ungodliness in many once godly nations allowed to co-exist with the righteousness of God.....Read More
