070: Why Is the Church So Shattered with Fiefdoms? - Craig Greatman

April 30, 2019

Craig Greatman -- pastor, Harley Davidson rider, Doctorate of Divinity candidate -- wonders why the Church is so shattered with fragmented fiefdoms. Are we adoring the icons of our own "Churchianity" cubbyholes? A miserly "meism" cannot experience the authentic Church that Christ is building.

069: Godspeed! // Overcome Via the Power of Reckoning. Period.

April 25, 2019

True faith counts it as so ... no matter what! "Reckoning" is an accounting term. "Kingdom Reckoning" draws a double line under what we are believing for. So we immerse ourselves in the Word. We pray. We speak. And we move in faith. No blinking - no flinching - no budging. Kingdom Accounting supersedes the natural plane and believes. Period.

068: Ohio Heartbeat Bill … Jesus-Followers Carry Resurrection Life - Janet Porter

April 23, 2019

Janet Porter is a seasoned warrior in the movement to protect the lives of babies. The Ohio state motto is, "With God, All Things Are Possible." Through an indefatigable faith, Janet has been a "Possibility" Point Person in launching the nation's first "heartbeat bill" in February, 2011. After an 8-year faith odyssey, Ohio became the 6th state in the nation to pass and sign a heartbeat bill (April, 2019) -- a baby cannot be aborted if a heartbeat is detected. There are presently 15 states in the heartbeat bill movement. Janet's question: Will Christ-Followers be confined to the "Church Ghetto?" Or will they reshape society as salt and light ... releasing the life of Jesus?

067: You Can Experience Resurrection Life Now! - Brian Del Turco

067: You Can Experience Resurrection Life Now! - Brian Del Turco

April 16, 2019

Jesus reframes our belief about resurrection life IN THE NOW -- just like he did with Martha when her brother died. We're designed in Christ to "taste the powers of the age to come" in our day (Hebrews 6:5). And that includes the resurrection life of Christ! Jesus said, "I am the resurrection and the life" ... it's a now statement. The truth is that the resurrection is already on since Christ was raised by the power of God. Everything can be affected by his life. Relationships. A business. A project. Anything. And yes, someone who has died. The question is -- are we willing and obedient to be "coached up" by Jesus?

066: Godspeed! // Winning Thoughts

066: Godspeed! // Winning Thoughts

April 11, 2019

This is Godspeed! ... punchy, bite-sized "tinysodes" from Jesus Smart. This is episode #66. We have between 12,000 and 60,000 thoughts run through our mind each day. When our thoughts start to blend with strong emotions, our brain is deeply impacted -- for the good or for the bad. Our physical brain actually changes according to how we think. New neural pathways are created. It's important that we take time to notice how we are thinking and feeling and take charge of our thought life. How we think affects everything. Paul wrote, "We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ" (2 Cor. 10:5 NASB).

064: Godspeed! // Understanding Pneumagraphics, Psychographics, and Demographics Can Transform Towns and Cities

064: Godspeed! // Understanding Pneumagraphics, Psychographics, and Demographics Can Transform Towns and Cities

April 4, 2019

Welcome to Godspeed! ... punchy, bite-sized tinysodes from Jesus Smart. This is episode #64. Everybody knows about demographics. Housing, economics, politics, business, crime, education, family life, and so on. We get "news" of demographics every day. People in the know also talk about psychographics ... the mentality and emotional life of people, whether in rural settings, communities, towns, or cities. Psychographics shapes demographics. Those who develop in Christ and form a Kingdom worldview know that there's an even higher level. Pneumagraphics is on top of everything -- shaping psychographics which shapes demographics. This is the level of revelation, understanding, higher thinking, prayer, spiritual gifts, the Word, and somehow teaching everyone all that Jesus commanded. Understanding this framework can transform everything.

063: Only the Best! Benefit from the Power of Faith - Brian Del Turco (Questing with God series #3)

April 2, 2019

We live our best lives by the power of authentic faith! And there's an unlimited supply ... sourced in the Living Voice of the Creator to us. As we advance our relationship with Christ, he continues to reveal himself AND his destiny for us. He expresses his thoughts to us -- this ignites and sustains our faith! Abraham quested after God. And the Story of God. Abraham is an "Only the Best" touchstone, the original pattern of faith. It's all now fulfilled in Christ! (Questing with God series #3)

062: Godspeed! // Creating God Spots 2 - Two or Three Gathered in My Name

March 28, 2019

Welcome to Godspeed! ... punchy, bite-sized tinysodes from Jesus Smart. This is a 2nd part on creating God Spots -- see episode #60 for the first part. God is everywhere, right? Well, yes, he's what theologians call "omnipresent." But that doesn't mean he's manifesting in power. He typically looks to Christ-Followers to set the stage for that. There's a special "God Spot" potential when two or three gather in the name of Christ. He's present as "Caesar Christ!" Christ-Followers can move the needle with this Kingdom Dynamic.

061: Move! Improvisation in the Holy Spirit - Matt Raines and Jason Howard

March 27, 2019

It’s high time to get rid of a Scarcity Script and start improvising with the Holy Spirit! Everything about God is abundant. Many have an under-resourced mindset ... but "This Is Our Father's World." And he is a more-than-enough Father! The Son has come to give us overflowing life! So do a personal audit: how are you doing with your vision and goals?

Special guests: Matt Raines and Jason Howard.
