The Church

A letter to my landlord

By Danny Parkes

Dear Dave, I thought I would write you to wish you and your family season’s greetings. At this time of year, many people celebrate many different things. And when I was young, Jesus was not really part of the celebration. Today, it remains true that many people who celebrate Christmas do not celebrate the birth…

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…

The Feast of Trumpets, the Blood Moons, and the Rise of the Beast

By Danny Parkes

I heard Obama’s “peace and security” speech yesterday (September 24, 2014) at the United Nations. I did not listen to it all, but I did note the part where he said that Palestinians and Jews could live side by side “… in peace and security …” (at about the 13:00 minute mark, at least in…

Satan’s Power (Is Real, But Limited)

By Danny Parkes

If you’ve read the Bible, you know that both God and Satan can do miracles. For example, the Egyptian magicians (operating in Satan’s power) were able to turn sticks of wood into living snakes (Exodus 7:12). That’s some feat, especially since snakes don’t have feet. But all joking aside, this really happened. This was one…

Touch Not the Lord’s Anointed?

By Danny Parkes

There are many teachers out there, and all including myself have flaws. I believe that generally-speaking, it is bad practice for people to “name call” by stating why their theology or teaching is better than someone else’s. In my practice of writing many hundreds of articles, I have only called out by name just a…

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,…

Does the Bible Teach “Seed Faith” or “Seed Offering” Giving?

By Danny Parkes

Does the Bible teach that if we give money to the church, we will get money in return? The answer is, not really — although there is a connection between being generous in your attitude and being blessed in your life. Proverbs 11:25 says, “The generous man will be prosperous, and he who waters will…

When Satan Attacks (Part 2)

By Danny Parkes

Satan is a real spiritual being. Even though you cannot see him, it does not mean he does not exist. After all, can you see electricity? You cannot. But you can feel its effects. So, too, can you feel the “effects” of Satan if you toy with him — or if you allow him to…
