God draws Us

God Draws Us

I oftentimes consider why we long for a deeper, more connected relationship with God our Father. I mostly have thought that it is our personal longing to know God better, to relate to Him in a more personal way. While I know this is true, we however are not the catalyst that is igniting our […]

prophetic words

What Do You Do With Your Prophetic Words?

~ Matters of the Heart ~ Last month we talked about hearing God’s voice. He still speaks to us today. You can hear it for yourself or someone can speak to you through prophetic words. Now I’d like to share with you how to oversee those words. We will look at how you best establish what is a present […]

Advent Peace

The Lord is for us, whom shall we fear?   Scripture 1 “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.” Numbers 6:24-25 Lord, bless us and keep us, turn toward us […]

Advent Joy

Christ has saved us! What joy!   Scripture 1 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 It is with great joy that we […]

What Do We Believe?

What do we believe? The last couple of months, we have talked about “Who are we?” and “Why are we?”. Let’s talk now about what do we believe. Joppa House is kind of a melting pot of doctrinal beliefs and varieties of Church cultures. We have not taken a hard stance on doctrinal issues. We do […]

Christ, through His sinless life and perfect sacrifice on the cross, has modeled true love for us. May we, by His grace, love God and love others.   Scripture 1 Sing, O heavens! Be joyful, O earth! And break out in singing, O mountains! For the Lord has comforted His people, and will have mercy […]

Advent Hope

Our hope is in Christ. Every one of His promises are true.   Scripture 1 “The days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will fulfill the good promise I made to the people of Israel and Judah. In those days and at that time I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David’s line; […]

Praying for the Nations

Christ is King and is all-powerful. He will come again and make all things right and good.   Scripture 1 Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled. Who among them can declare this, and show us former things? Let them hear and say, “It is truth.” “You are My […]

Praying for the Nations

May the Church be a strong witness for Christ to the nations.   Scripture 1 For the day of the Lord upon all nations is near; as you have done, it shall be done to you; the reprisal shall return upon your own head. V.17 But on Mount Zion there shall be deliverance, and there […]

why we are

Why Are We?

In helping people to better understand what Joppa House of Prayer is, we previously discussed “Who are we”. Today, we will talk about “Why are we”. With so many people stretched by life, even many Christians have developed a pattern in their life with the goal just trying to stay caught up with the demands […]
