Being a Cheerleader is Not Enough.
When a peron comes to Christ, we need to be more than just the cheerleader on the sidelines.
September 23, 2021
Act in Love
Christians can have different opinions about things and still be great Christ-followers. Stiring up controversy with them is not the loving thing to do.
September 22, 2021
Actions and Words, Both Speak
Some say actions speak louder than words, but the truth is, both speak loudly.
September 21, 2021
How Did They Die?
Speaking about the apostles, we often forget, or do not even know how they died, but it is far more important to know why they died!
September 20, 2021
Our Battle Is Not Against People
Along our journey, we will experience spiritual attacks perpetrated by people. SOme are simply decieved some not. Our response is basically the same. 
September 09, 2021
The Book of Life
When everything around you gives you cause to be sad or depressed, believers have something to rejoice about!

Worry About The Lord's Opinion.
Today is the Day The Lord is made. Let's focus on what's important today

2 Corinthians 5
Too many Christians are Christian in decleration only
September 04, 2021
What Do You Focus On?
Jesus didn't tell us about the signs of the end of times so that we can be busy focusing on that. The salvation of The Lord should be our focus!
September 03, 2021
Did you quarantine The Holy Spirit in your life?
Every believer has The Holy Spirit, but it is another matter entirely as to whether or not they walk in the power of The Holy Spirt.
September 02, 2021
Men Are Not Your Enemy.
I hear Christians all the time say things like, "I forgive you, but you can never be around me again." Is that really forgiveness?
September 01, 2021
And He Will Say, "Here Am I."
Every believer wants God to hear their parayers and answer them, but did you know that God calls us to a certian conduct with a promise to hear us and answer?
August 31, 2021
Can You Judge Better Than God?
Judging yourself condemded or unloveable when God has judged you forgiven and worthy, means that you value your judgement more then God's.
August 30, 2021
He Loves You in Spite of Your Failure
All of us fail at one time or another. Some times we even "backslide". Peter denied Jesus and yet Jesus loved him in spite of his denile! 
August 28, 2021
Are You the Nation That Keeps Faith?
Are you looking for peace in your life? There is a right answer!
August 27, 2021
Sharing Hope is Worship
Without salvation, people exist in a state of rebellion. They need you and God commands you!
August 26, 2021
Don't Just Bake Cookies
Sharing the Gospel message requires us to use our words. Our actions only confirm, or authenticate the words we speak. 
August 25, 2021
Faith is Trust in God
We talk about faith, but do we know what the Word of God says about it?

It only takes the realization that God is not like man in keeping His promises.
August 23, 2021

Don't Try To Avoid Them.
Those unclean people! Everywhere I look I all I see are those bad people. Don't go around them, what will people say?
August 18, 2021
Seize Ahold of it Violently
Fear, depression, and anxiety all try to destroy many believers. Our victory is from God in this and through Him we can be that overcomer, but this is not a passive battle.
August 17, 2021
I'll Do It Tomorrow.
It is a batle within you and today is the day to choose!

Seeking God, using wisdom, and the laying on of hands are all important features of ministry.
August 13, 2021
Gather Together

August 09, 2021
I'm Not Sitting Down
When Jesus is passing by, are you just getting your name on a prayer list?
August 07, 2021
Don't Be Simon the Scorcerer
Sometimes in our desire to see God move, we become focused on His power and not Him.
August 06, 2021
Calling, Maturity, and Christ
Stop saying, 'I'm not called to do that." You are called to do whatever Christ calls you to do. As you mature in your Christian walk, you will find that you need to be different things at different times to reach different people! We serve the Kings pleasure, not our own.
August 05, 2021
How Wonderful To Be Redeemed
The redeemed have it made. Life is great! Of course, to those who are not redeemed, your life may look difficult, but that is because they do not have that wonderful Joy of The Lord!
August 04, 2021
Who Can Be Agianst You?
Being a Christian in name only does not mark you "safe" from the attacks of the enemy.

July 28, 2021
You Once Existed In Rebellion.
Jesus calls you to his righteousness. How are you choosing to live this day?
July 27, 2021
It Just Goes Deeper
I don't want to hear what it means to you, I want to hear what God means!
July 26, 2021
The Authentic One
If our identity is found in Christ, then the world should see Christ through us.
July 24, 2021
Put Your Head In The Clouds
Most people grow up hearing the expression, "get your head out of the clouds", but I'm here to tell you why it is important to get your head into the clouds!
July 23, 2021
It Must Define You!
We are called to one task that sounds simple enough. The reality is that it is perhaps the most difficult thing to do.
July 22, 2021
We Are A Restorative People.
As followers of Jesus, we have a responsibility towards restoration of people. 
July 21, 2021

Psalm 23
A quick look at a Bible passage about our walk with The Lord.

The Christ Character Equals Persecution
Jesus tells us that following Him will bring persecution.

June 07, 2021
Rise Up!
We have been presented with a free gift. However, that gift is not one to just sit idle with, it is a call to action!
June 04, 2021
Don't Do It Alone
We cannot please God under our own power
June 03, 2021
No One is Too Far Gone
As Christ-Followers, we have a directive on how we are supposed to view people in the world. Our eyes are to be kingdom orientated in their seeing. 
June 02, 2021
Two Responsibilities
The essence of the Christian life is pretty basic and simple. The application may get difficult, but that is why God gives us grace.
June 01, 2021
Run Through The Door!
God provides all of us with a way through whatever is going on in our life. This isn't some new thing, just God's truth laid out for each of us!
May 28, 2021
No Application, No Promise.
Jesus, and then the Apostles make it clear over and over how important it is for us to allow the teachings of Christ to define our behavior and attitudes. 
May 27, 2021
Love it, Live it, Preach it!
Some have said that it is right to preach the Gospel and use your words when you have to; scripture says, live the Gospel AND use your words!
May 26, 2021
Choosing Trust
As believers, we have no justification for being anxious. Faith is knowing the character of God and trusting in that despite what we see going on around us.
May 25, 2021
We Must See Through Christ!
As one of the redeemed, we no longer have the luxury of seeing people through the eyes of the world. We must see all people through the eyes of The Lord!
May 24, 2021
Fast Living
We have not been called to only be Christ-like sometimes.
May 20, 2021

May 18, 2021
Darkness and Light
You cannot be a follower of Jesus and walk in sin; the choice is ours!
May 17, 2021
Do You Love Me?
You will fail as a follower of Christ. Just like Peter, Jesus still loves you.
May 15, 2021
He is Before All Things.
God was pleased to have the fullness of Himself dwell in Jesus. How can Jesus not be the completeness in your life?
May 14, 2021
He Is Before All Things.
Is Christ sufficient in your life? As a believer, we are given the very essence of prosperity in our life.
May 13, 2021
Is God's Love Enough?
Of course the answer is yes, or so we claim to believe, but the real question is, do you live that truth?
May 12, 2021
Don't Hide Under the Bushel
The people around you need you to live the redeemed life.
May 11, 2021
Be the Real Deal
We are not redeemed to be a fake imitation of the Christ Character. The world needs to see that we love The Lord and will do whatever He commands.
May 10, 2021
Not a Maybe Hope
What does it mean "for those who are IN Christ Jesus"? How does that relate to faith?
May 06, 2021
Why Have You Deceived Me?
The world needs to see power in your walk. God enables us to be the vessels of His manifest glory, the world needs to see it. 
May 05, 2021
Tell Them There is Hope
In Acts 17 we read that Paul didn't focus on what the people were doing that was wrong before God, their idolatry etc. Instead, He focused on the good news of the Gospel and the Resurrection.

April 27, 2021
They Devoted Themselves
What are we not doing? Why is the church not as impactful today as we think it should be?
April 26, 2021
Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise
The world does not need us to live the worldly healthy, wealthy, wise life. They need the Kingdom version. They need us to be God's children.
April 24, 2021
It's a Beautiful Day
There is a reason I say it is a beautiful day every day. This message is from February, 2014
April 23, 2021
That Peaceful Life
In light of what is going on in many governments around the world, it is easy for us to get outraged at the changes, but what has the Lord called us to be like in this time?
April 22, 2021
Compromised Identity
Our continuing mining operation into 1 Peter.  This episode focuses on the apostles reminder to us.
April 21, 2021
Do Not be the Weary Traveler.
There is a coming wrath, for those who have rejected the salvation of Christ, your walk of Christian integrity becomes God's praise on the lips of the believer.
April 20, 2021
Live in Harmony
The world is watching. If we don't take it serious, why should they?
April 19, 2021

To truly be a blessing in someone's life, we must first understand what the need is. Whether words or labor, to be the blessing is important.
April 17, 2021

Peace and Celebration Equal Rejoicing

April 14, 2021
We Are Bricks in the Wall
Being a living stone begins with our identity.
April 13, 2021
It's Not About My Feel Good
Forgiveness, what it is not and what it is. For the believer it is different than what it is in the world.
April 12, 2021
Maintenance and Modifications
Our Christian walk takes regular maintenance and modifications so that we may stay kingdom healthy.
April 10, 2021
Those Untamed Lips!
Our words have power. Our words, even that idle talk, have great power in our life and the lives of people we speak to and about.
April 09, 2021
Are You a Pusher or a Puller
There are some people who try to push others into the Gospel and there are those who pull them in. Which one are you?
April 08, 2021
Love Plentifully
If you cannot forgive, how can you love? If you cannot love, how can you be a son or daughter of God?
April 07, 2021
Be a Floodlight
God hasn't called us to be a dimly lit candle, and there is nothing dim about our God!
April 06, 2021
Why You Should Be a Stalker!
You were not redeemed to lead a idle life, but a transformational life. 
April 05, 2021

Good Friday
It is Good Friday, but it is only Good Friday looking backwards!
April 02, 2021
Help, I Have a Sin Addiction.
Sin addiction is not just the big things like pornography, gambling. It is any sin you return to over and over. However, there is good news, through Christ, this bondage can be broken!  
April 01, 2021
Let The Dead Man Lay!
Why give life to the dead? You are alive in Christ, leave your dead self in the grave.
March 31, 2021
Being Filled With The Holy Spirit
Not one of us as a believer can labor effectively for the Kingdom of God without His Holy Spirit operating in us.
March 30, 2021
Shame in My Life
Do you find yourself still haunted by shame from your past?  You know the Bible, and every time you try to talk to a fellow believer about it, they just tell you to move on, you've been forgiven. They just don't seem to get it, do they?
March 29, 2021
Be Transformed
We cannot be who we used to be. God did not call us to be stagnant, nor remain as the person we were. We are to no longer conform to the world around us, but to be transformed. This message is from  12 Minutes With Mickey - March 2013 This message is just as important today as it was then.
March 28, 2021

March 27, 2021
In this episode we wrap-up this 5 part message about Mark chapter 16 and the Great Commission.
March 26, 2021
And These Signs Will Accompany You.
In the Great Commission, Jesus tells us that there will be signs that accompany us in the activity of sharing the Gospel, but does that mean they are ours to call at our leisure? 
March 25, 2021
Do you Cry Out For Them?
Do you really believe in Hell? Do you really care for the lost? If you did, you would really be broken for them to recieve God's salvation!
March 24, 2021
He Already Said Go
We continue with Mark 16 and The Great Commission.
March 23, 2021
The Great Commission part 1
What are the marching orders Jesus gave us, and are we walking them out?
March 22, 2021
Mark 16 The Great Commission
This is the full message in it's entirety from Sunday March 21, 2021
March 22, 2021
Cain and Able Offerings
Our sacrifice to The Lord always falls in one of two categories: either a Cain, or an Able offering. 
March 19, 2021
Obedience and Choice
Is walking with The Lord satisfying to you? If not, we need to look at your choices!
March 18, 2021
A Work in Progress
How many times have you heard someone say they are just a work in progress?  Maybe, like me, you have said it at times, but what are we really doing when we say this?
March 17, 2021
Living Stones
We are living stones for The Lord. This message is from July, 2011. The Church is built with us, each of us being God's building stones. 
March 16, 2021
Your words have power.  Real life effecting power, but what does it mean to curse someone?
March 15, 2021
Idolatry and Rebellion
Reaching back to one of my most listened to teachings over the last decade. This one is from the 12 Minutes With Mickey in January, 2013. Here we take a teaching drawn from Samuel and confront idolatry and rebellion in our own lives.
March 12, 2021
Fruit of The Spirit
Reaching back to June of 2011, this is one of my most listened to teachings over the last decade of 12 Minutes With Mickey. How we live as believers, allowing the Spirit of God to live in and through you, allows the world to see Jesus in you.
March 12, 2021
Have You Told Him You Love Him Lately
Praise is your expressed heart of love towards God, but it is more than that.
March 12, 2021
Sing Your Song
Stepping backwards in time to February of 2011, this message about Psalm 105 is just as relevant today as it was then. 
March 11, 2021
I'm Not Jesus
Have you ever heard someone respond like this? Maybe you have responded like this when someone insisted you react to another persons wickedness.
March 10, 2021
All Things Work Together
How many times have you heard someone say that God works all things together for good? We hear this many times when someone is trying to give words of comfort or someone is going through a bad time, but what does it mean?
March 09, 2021
I Quit!
Working for Jesus can be stressful. Or so we find, but is that the way it is supposed to be? If not, what are we doing wrong?
March 08, 2021
Isaiah 58
Reading Isaiah chapter 58 is where we find the true meaning of fasting according to God's own heart.  This message is from the January 5, 2011, 12 Minutes With Mickey broadcast.  This is the top ten most listened to teaching.  Its message was relevant then and is still relevant today!
March 06, 2021
It's Not About The Return
Investing in the kingdom is never about what we get back. The investment demonstrates our heart!
March 06, 2021
Five Points to Amplify Your Prayers
Prayer is not some religious thing we do, it is a direct line to our Heavenly Father.
March 05, 2021
He is Holy
Prayer is our most fundamental cornerstone in our relationship with God.
March 04, 2021
Love for the Lost part 2 of 2
As we continue with talking about loving the lost, we are challenged to love those who are not easy to love.
March 03, 2021
Love for the Lost.
Previously we asked the question, what sin is too much. Today we begin to put that into action as we put love into action.
March 02, 2021
What Sin is too Much?
What sin is too much to be forgiven? All Christians know the right answer - there is none. However, do we believe it enough to put it into practice?
March 01, 2021
Blessings and The Holy Spirit
We cannot walk in the true blessings of God and walk in the ways of the world.
February 26, 2021
Being a Blessing
How can we be a blessing in the life of a brother or sister who appears to be lost?
February 25, 2021
What is Your Psalm?
God is moving in the lives of every believer. What is God's story in your life?
February 24, 2021
The Duty of All Believers
Okay, so you were saved. Now what? I'm not called to be an evangelist or preacher, or even a teacher; what do I do now?
February 23, 2021
Worthiness, Love, and Obedience
What did Jesus teach about loving Him and how to love Him?
February 21, 2021
What's in Your Neighbor's Cupboard
The world knew who the follower's of Christ were by their love for each other!
February 19, 2021
Loving The Wicked
We walk across the road and walk with them a spell, meeting them where they are at. Later we return with fresh blessings.
February 17, 2021
You Are No Longer an Enemy
Imagine for a moment, the most vile, wicked, evil human being you can think of. Now picture them being a part of your family!
February 17, 2021
Salvation part 2 of 2
Picking up where we left off yesterday; examining our life to make sure we are not the one's Jesus says, "Depart from me, I never knew you!"
February 16, 2021
Salvation part 1 of 2
Our salvation is far too important to assume. Let's take a look at where we are in Christ!
February 15, 2021
Dwelling in Faith
We like to talk about faith, but what does having faith really mean?
February 10, 2021
Life and Unselfish Living
Our battle cry as a Christian is "I am trusting God for_____!"  Yet through our prayers our heart is often revealed. 
February 09, 2021
Power and Authority
As believers we are filled with the same power that raised Jesus from the grave. That power is not given to not be under submission to authority.
February 08, 2021
Morality and Deception
Often times we as Christians focus on the wrong thing when talking to others about right and wrong.
February 05, 2021
The Enemy Within
The strategies of the enemy never change. Becoming the enemies pawn is always a threat to us.
February 03, 2021
Following Jesus and Asking God
Christians make many compromises when it comes to belief that if examined under the lens of Scripture, may leave you to question whether you are truly saved!
