Meet a man who overflows with the message of God’s love, His genuine enjoyment of you as His child, and that relationship with God is made to be a pleasure rather than a burden!  Join Dr. Brown as he interviews S.J. Hill.

Hour 1:

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: God can be known, and God can be loved; God can be experienced in an intimate way.  Greater than any earthly father by far is our heavenly Father who dearly loves you, who enjoys His time and fellowship with you, and invites you to come to know and enjoy Him.


Hour 2:

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: God did not stop loving you once He saved you; God did not go through a theological and religious act by sending His Son into the world to die for you so that He could then put you in the category of “the saved,” and better still, join the membership roles of a church somewhere.  God’s love for you is intense and eternal.  God’s love for you as His child is certainly expressed even more wonderfully now than it was when you were lost.  I’ve walked with Him now almost 40 years, and my great confidence is not in the sincerity or commitment of Mike Brown; my great confidence is in the keeping power of a loving God who sent His Son to make me His own, so I could be with Him forever!  What an extraordinary prospect!

  1. I was raised in a 7th day church that didn’t clap, only wanted to sings hymns, no raising of the hands, no Trinity and no Holy Spirit, Jesus wasn’t the Son of God.

    It really ruined my view of God and I left the church, as did a majority of the people there.

    It was The Holy Spirit that changed my whole view of God and his love. I enjoyed God through fellowship with Him through prayer and praise and worship. That when I most felt His presence.

    Right now I don’t feel God’s presence in my life. In fact, I do feel like He is not there or is distant. I very much feel that He is disappointed with me and is mad at me after being a good Christian man for about a year after accepting to dabbling in witchcraft and letting demons in life. For almost 3 years now I have tried to get them out of my life and have not had any success. Even thought there was one account where God pretty rescue me after a night of them tormenting me. Through my mom praying with me and through The Holy Spirit we were told that God’s angels were in the room. I felt like my body was in a tug of war, after I was set free I was very scared, and my mom prayed that God’s peace fill the room. It was as if the whole atmosphere changed, you could feel it, like a fog rolling in on the bay and you can feel the humidity in the air and on your skin.

    I’ve has a big problem with lust and on-line porn, which allows them to continue to enter my life, always. And I have trouble over coming the physical pleasure I now feel from these demons.

    I honestly feel like I will never overcome it, as if I doomed.

  2. Hey Jesse,

    I’ve had the same problem too, brother.

    But now I’ve stopped. Why?

    Think about this, whenever you’re tempted. Would you rather

    have empty love, which is lust and porn,

    or

    the eternal Love of the Eternal God, that has endless depth and height and width and length that cannot be measured? The love that He showed in giving up His only Son, Jesus Christ, for us, the unfaithful and unrighteous?

    What would you rather have?

    God Bless

  3. Jesse,

    Don’t give up. Jesus loves you and wants to set you free. Bondage is tough. It is the spirit vs. the flesh. Asked the Lord to help you. Get some support from a trusted church member that you can talk to.

    Renounce the witch craft. Bring it to the cross. Get a porn block on your internet.

    Your sins are as far as the East is from the West.

    Take this in…

  4. Jesse,

    Find refuge in the name of Jesus. Learn to abide in him and in the power of his name. Remember to avoid all evil. Armor up in scriptures like Proverbs 7. There’s a lot in Proverbs about overcoming lust.

    Do you sense that God is planning on using you in mighty ways in the future? If so, you have to overcome.

    The Lord was with Job when he didn’t seem to sense him. He never left him. Overcome.

  5. thank you for the words of encouragement!

    I want to share some notes I took when Peter Doseck visited our church. http://www.peterdoseck.com/

    If you were to ask most Christians what “grace” means most would probaly reply, “unmeritted favor.” That is one meaning out of about 15 Hebrew/Greek words, and we call it favor. It does have to do with favor, absolutely, but favor that grace produces causes God to do something for us. So grace is far more than favor. The grace of God is made up of three elements in Eph 2: 4-10; the love of God, The mercy of God, and the kindness of God. These three things develope a favorable state against a transgressing people. And out of that favorable state, God abounds with grace.

    Here’s what grace means:

    Divine influence

    To give benefits that no one deserves, nor that could ever be purchased.

    Acceptance in the eyes of God.

    An unexpected, beyond human joy at its finding.

    To be well off.

    God’s accompaniment and His presence no matter where you are.

    So really, grace is God’s willingness, because He loves us, He’s mercifull to us, and He’s kind to us. God has did something for you and I that we could not do for ourselves.

    Now please understand that love, mercy, kindness and their fruit, which is grace, the benefits, the acceptance of sinful man is beyond the comprehension of any dimension of creation. Angels even looked and said, “What is man that you have considered him after he has transgressed. Why would you send your Son to die for people that curse You, and care not!” It’s beyond angelic comprehension, it’s beyond our comprehension. We pray we that would discover the love of God, the width, the height, the length, the deepth of it all, but in stark reality we will never know the the deepths of the love of God because the Bible says here (Eph 2:4-10) He did it, and in the worlds to come he’ll still be revealing the dimensions of His love, His mercy, His kindness, and the benefits, and the fruit of grace in our life. In other words, what God has done is far bigger than the human spanse of time.

    Now, man sinned, and the wages of sin is death. But God, because He loved us, even when we sinned, He was merciful. He in no way, shape, or form desired that anybody suffer the punishment of satanic rule, even though they did everything to achieve it. And then He was kind, so out of that God creates GRACE.

    And what does grace do? Grace goes to calvary, and dies for mankind, which cannot die for himself, which cannot redeem himself, which cannot restore blessing to himself, so God does something at calvary for us, that we cannot do for ourself.

    So we realize, grace is God’s willingness to do for us what WE_CAN’T_DO_FOR_OURSELF. We couldn’t free ourself from sin, or Jesus wouldn’t of come. We couldn’t make ourself accepted by God no matter how many good works we did, so God sent His Son. We couldn’t free ourself from satanic rule, so God sends His Son.

    So we understand that grace is made up of three elements, love, mercy and kindness. It causes God to see us in a favorable manner, but moves Him to do something on our behalf that we can’t do for ourself. So, God’s presence is constantly with us, God has layed up benefits for you and I as Christians, we don’t deserve them, but we have them.

    Now we understand that grace is free to us, but it cost God His Son.

    Out of the love, the mercy, the kindness of God, Jesus Christ picks up the challenge to come and to give His life for our sins. And so Jesus comes, born of a virgin, lives a holy life, dies a sacrificial life, he suffers the beating for the penalty of our sin, He dies on the cross, and on the third day He raises, and he does what?

    He releases grace to humanity. And He causes them to be accepted by faith in His blood. Something that man could not have ever accomplished.
