Christian Discipleship

All In A Day’s Work

By Danny Parkes

I am about to recount to you an incredible story that is absolutely mind-boggling (to me) and demonstrates quite a few things about God’s character and His love for people, as well as His oversight. There are many things in this testimony, and I don’t know how long (in terms of words) that it will…

Can a Man Actually Call Forth Angels, Even God?

By Danny Parkes

I have been away from the Pentecostal church for quite a few years. I was driven out by bad doctrine, and it appalled me, so my wife and I went on to greener pastures, where once again we were met with bad doctrine, that shocked us to our core. We went where? To yet another…

God Needs You to Help Others

By Danny Parkes

My head was screaming with disagreement. I did not have peace. Sure, I had exercise, for I was at the pool. But I didn’t have peace. I had great disturbance, for I was concerned about so many things. What were those things? Hum … they were hard to enumerate. I felt like a failure. I…

Divine Encounter: The Taxi Driver

By Danny Parkes

This is the second in a two-part mini series. The first in this series is, Divine Encounter: The S/x Shop Worker. I was like the Big Bad Wolf in the story of the Three Little Pigs: I was huffing and puffing as I ran to that bus station to catch my bus! I huffed, and…

Does God only Heal Instantly, and are Doctors God’s “Second Best”?

By Danny Parkes

I’d like to share an experience I recently had, which was an experience I had among brothers in Christ. Sitting at a table were approximately 6 of us. The small group was being led by one person, a man who loves God, but who does not entirely love what I wrote on seed faith teaching…

Striving for the finish line

By P. L. Di-Fonzo, FEBCC Chaplaincy Services, Guelp, Ontario, Canada

Dear prayer partners, This subject may appear to some readers as a lightning rod for controversy, but that is not the intent of this newsletter. Islam is the fastest growing religion both in the US and Canada [the world]. Islam is rapidly advancing under the banner of political correctness, and through aggressive proselytizing. For example,…

The Road of Faith (as revealed in a dream)

By Danny Parkes

This dream seems to start at OCS (the school my daughter is currently attending). This is a Christian school. I am not sure whether or not we — that would be my wife and I — dropped off our daughter at OCS or not, but it appears we are coming from OCS in the dream,…

It Works Better On Your Knees

By Danny Parkes

I had a great idea one morning. Pray in bed. So I sat up, closed my eyes, and began to pray. But I was so tired. I prayed a prayer all right, but how effective was it? It’s easy to delude yourself in such a situation. But don’t be fooled. There’s a difference between “praying…

How to Make Do With What You’ve Got (Part 2)

By Danny Parkes

God has His way of meeting needs, but they are sometimes not at all in accordance with what you’d expect. I’m no different than anyone else. What God would do for me, He would do for you, too. Quite a few years ago, my wife and I took our children out to a fast food…

How To Make Do With What You’ve Got (And Be Happy About It!)

By Danny Parkes

A long time ago, I had a dream. This dream occurred at about the same time as I was at risk of bouncing a cheque in real life. My bank account was “really low.” In the dream, I saw a train that had empty box cars attached to it. There were many box cars, but…
