Is She Dressed for His Return?

Posted by Julie Branstetter on Wednesday, August 5, 2015, In : Ministry 

No prophet or messenger from God ever came to God's people saying, "Hey, you're doing a great job, keep that up." No, be careful that the voice crying out in the desert to make straight the paths for the King isn't the one that offends you or the one referred to as "tearing down" the church. Those who tear down the church attempt to correct her without any direction or hope for how things will be made better. Those who tear down the church also are those who help her keep sleeping and ...

He Will Establish You

Posted by Julie Branstetter on Wednesday, May 27, 2015, In : Ministry 

In Matthew Chapter 16 we see two stories back to back that reveal much about the way Christians can act and it isn’t always how Christ would desire. We are being molded and shaped on a daily basis, as we walk with the Lord, just like the disciples were when they walked with Him. We are sometimes no different than the double minded apostle, Simon Peter. He was the disciple with the foot shaped mouth. In verses 13-17, Jesus asks the disciples, "Who do people say the Son of Man is?” ...

You Must Be Born Again

Posted by Julie Branstetter on Friday, March 6, 2015, In : Ministry 


“Ye must be born again.” - John 3:7

Jesus said, "And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.  For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.  But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.” (John 3:19-21)

Jesus made it clear that we cannot be ...

Humiliation

Posted by Julie Branstetter on Monday, March 2, 2015, In : Ministry 
In prayer I asked God why He lets me be humiliated in front of people so much.  (Sorry, but sometimes I feel like the biggest mess up in the room because I am) and I told Him I would follow Him and do whatever He asked of me but please please don't let me keep being humiliated... His response..."My greatest ministry for my children required my complete humiliation. Can you imagine having all the power in the world to end it but having to endure it anyway for your sake? Don't think it will be ...

Living and Dying In The Same Place

Posted by Julie Branstetter on Tuesday, February 10, 2015, In : Ministry 
Christ knows what living and dying in the same place is. He was both living and dying on that cross. That is such a symbol of what life in this world is like for us as Christians. Until He returns we die to ourselves daily and live in Christ at the same time and some days it just feels like more dying than living but let me encourage you today. THERE WAS A RESURRECTION!! And that is His gift to you and me. You can stand up under the pressure of today because of the hope of glory. ...

Guarding Their Hearts

Posted by Julie Branstetter on Tuesday, December 30, 2014, In : Ministry 

Phil 2:3-4 "Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with HUMILITY OF MIND regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others."  >>  I woke up at 4:30 this morning having had a dream.  The body of Christ was in a worship service and we were singing songs I've never heard before.  God was being exalted and worshiped on a greater level than ever, because of the hearts of the people.  I'll ke...

Faith For Today

Posted by Julie Branstetter on Monday, November 3, 2014, In : Ministry 


It amazes me to see how God works.  Some of the most significant things He does are often done through people who have no idea what He is doing or what the affect of what they are going through is having outside of their circumstances.  When we are climbing up difficult mountains in our lives we know by faith in God's goodness and promises that there is a top of the mountain moment coming but all we can see and feel is the enormity of the mountain. The cliffs are steep, the places where we ne...
