Blogging for Jesus

Richard D. Dover BlogGreetings to all of you who visit my personal blog site. This is where I share my heart, and hopefully at least some of the time, share the heart of Father  God, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Please understand my posts are my own opinion alone, and not necessary representative of the organizations that I represent. Also be aware that I am not a politically correct person. I much rather be biblically correct. So my posts may not line up with what the world has to say, or at times, even what it appears the Church is saying in America. I strongly believe the truth sets us free.

(We have transferred over 10 years of articles to this blog site. As time allows we are formatting the old entries.)


New Media Hypocrisy?

New Media Hypocrisy?

This article is based upon the news coverage of the Christ Church, New Zealand mosque shootings. I should first say this was a tragic, horrific, unjustified incident. Thus anything I say is not to lessen these tragedies. it is good that CNN and all the news outlets covered this tragedy. However, the overall news coverage of these incidents appears to be very hypocritical, biased, and political in nature. Let me explain.

Christians Killed, Churches Destroyed
There have been thousands of Christians killed for their faith by Muslims and others around the world. In 2017 alone there was 84,000 Christians murdered. In China, India, Sudan, Nigeria and many other places many churches have been destroyed. There has been a genocide of Christians in Nigeria the last few years. One of the highest rape statistics is women being raped in Congolese refugee camps.

Where is the hypocrisy? Where is the bias? Where is the political agenda? There has been almost total silence in regards to the stories behind these horrific statistics. Why has not CNN made this headline news? Why is it they do not point out that much of this done by Muslims?

How Does God Do Miracles?

How Does God Do Miracles?

I have been thinking about Autumn, a church member who is dealing with much pain because of a 5mm kidney stone. Many of us have been praying for her to experience a miracle-the kidney stone to dissolve, so she does not have surgery and have the pain of trying to pass a large kidney stone. What I was thinking is ‘how is God going to take care of the kidney stone?’ He is sovereign so He can do it any way He wants, but that is not what I was thinking. I was thinking literally HOW?

God is a Consuming Fire

God is a Consuming Fire

Hebrews 12:25-29 (ESV)
25  See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. For if they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape if we reject him who warns from heaven.
26  At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.”
27  This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken—that is, things that have been made—in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain.
28  Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe,
29  for our God is a consuming fire.

What Fire Burns in You?

What Fire Burns in You?

For many it is the fire of sin and the fire of worldly passion. Seeking the things of this world with a fervency. If you are a Christian this is a question that you must absolutely ask yourself. You are obligated to ask yourself. If you don’t you will most likely be a carnal Christian. A Christian that seeks the pleasures of this world rather than seeking the fire of God to purge the world out of you.

It’s Happening-Healings
Chapter 10 , A Worthy Host

This audio is an excerpt from Chapter 10-A Worthy Host,  of the book “It’s Happening” by Pastor William McDowell. Pastor McDowell is speaking on some of the confirmed healings that have taken place at his church. Take note that every single healing he speaks of has been medically confirmed. He refuses to call any type of healing a miracle unless it can be confirmed medically. Sadly many who claim of healings have no substantiated proof that the healing were legitimate. All this does is bring doubt to those who hear the testimonies. Pastor McDowell one who desires to lift Jesus up, not miracles.

Are You Flammable?

Are You Flammable?

This post is for those who have been reading our daily articles on this topic. I have a question for you? Are you flammable? In other words are you a person that wants the fire of God to burn in you, flow through you, and ignite others? Do you want to be filled with the Holy Spirit and to be used by God to perform signs and wonders? Do you want to be so transformed by God that others know He is in control of your life? ALL FOR HIS GLORY ? If so, you are flammable.

Not sure? Or you may ask “How do I get there?” This article will answer those questions.

Here is what you can know. If these articles do not stir up any kind of fire in you, do not stir up faith in you, do not create any hunger in you to know more about the Holy Spirit, or do not create a desire to have a closer relationship with God, you are probably fireproof, not flammable. Our next post will address the topic of being fireproof. Hopefully that is not you.

America Has Cancer

America Has Cancer

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only solution for America’s condition.

Christians-stop looking for political leaders, government leaders, MAN as the solution. They are all band aids to a cancerous disease.There is the need for band aids. There is a need to keep wounds from getting worse, but band aids do not cure disease, especially cancerous disease.

Too many Christians are looking at the symptoms and thinking it is a political party problem. Politics are the symptoms, not the disease. The root of the problem, the disease, is the heart, not politics. And it is the heart of more than Democrats. It is the overall spiritual condition of America.

God of Wonders
Megethos-Unstoppable Potency

Concepts from the book Holy Spirit: Are We Flammable Or Fireproof? by Reinhard Bonnke.

As Christians we have the Holy Spirit living within us and thus have access to the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the grave. (Romans 8:11)

A powerless church is a disgrace. The Holy Spirit is always in on the act when you act for God. If you don’t work for God, you don’t need power, and none will be given.
Reinhard Bonnke

A follower of Christ who desires to be a vessel of honor used for the Kingdom of God has access to an unstoppable power through the Holy Spirit.  Unstoppable potentcy, super greatness, hyper megethos.

The Impossible Happens

The Impossible Happens

Concepts from the book Holy Spirit: Are We Flammable Or Fireproof? by Reinhard Bonnke.

God’s divine nature is not only amazing and supernatural, it is miraculous.

The Divine nature is not just supernatural; it is miraculous. God’s power, love and goodness transcend all matter. Where the presence of God is the impossible can happen.

There is no such word as impossible in God’s dictionary. THE IMPOSSIBLE HAPPENS WHEN GOD IS AROUND. IT IS HIS hallmark.
Reinhard Bonnke
