Sorry to those of you who've been patiently waiting for me to come back to the podcast. Time has just kind of slipped away from me, and I didn't realize how long it's been since the last episode was published live. I plan on coming back to it, but the hiatus is "indefinite" for the time being for reasons I share in this half episode before getting …
 
I tackle a couple of world events. I say a “couple”, though it’s true, but I spend more time disproportionately focused on the situation of John Allen Chau, the missionary who was killed by The Sentinelese tribe on the North Sentinel Island off the coast of India. I felt like I needed to say something and offer my perspective, hoping that my slant …
 
I got to be interviewed by Ryan J. Rhoades, founder of Reformation Designs this past weekend. He does a weekly FB live interview series on the subject of branding. We talked about writing and publishing books, of course. This is the raw file, unedited, so there were a few glitches, and you hear me say um and uh a lot more than normal as a result. W…
 
Derek Snook, self-described son of a Baptist minister and entrepeneur joins me to discuss his recent book, The Definition of Success: What Living Homeless Can Teach You. He tells me what was intended as a one-night experiment lasted a year, and years later he has decided to publish a book about how this experience had an impact on him and what he l…
 
Dr. Brian Simmons, lead translator for The Passion Translation of the Bible joins me this week for an insightful interview and discussion. In this episode we cover: How he handles peoples' criticism that he's a "lone ranger" translating the Bible; and how he learns to listen to critics in case God is speaking to him through them Epiphanies he had w…
 
Florida State Representative Kimberly Daniels and pastor of Spoken Word Ministries church in North and South Florida joins us this week to discuss her brand new book Breaking the Power of Familiar Spirits: How to Deal with Demonic Conspiracies from Charisma House. We discuss: Her background including before she came to Christ and was bound by drugs…
 
I recorded an impromptu episode a couple of nights ago, rather spontaneously and share some of my thoughts and things I've recently learned about the Day of Pentecost. If you're a Bible detail geek like me, you'll be just as fascinated to reflect on the times and seasons of the Lord and patterns in Scripture. Such as the things we glean about Pente…
 
Dr. Michael L. Brown joins me again, this time to talk about his newest book, Playing With Holy Fire. It was a privilege and an honor to have him back on the show again. We discuss some of the excesses and abuses that plague the charismatic movement and Pentecostal church, as well as other aspects of the abuse of funds and "fame" of some preachers,…
 
We talk about seeing in the spiritual realm in this episode of the podcast with Blake Healy, author of The Veil. Ministry has been a foundational part of Blake’s life from the very beginning. He grew up as a missionary kid, living throughout different parts of Western Europe. He got involved in the prophetic ministry at the age of twelve and starte…
 
Check out this sample from the first chapter of the new audiobook, One Bloody Road: The Glorious Way of Discipleship by J.G. Garrett. In this episode we'll be hearing a selection from the beginning of Chapter 1: Via Dolorosa. The Book's Description on Amazon: For one singular purpose Jesus of Nazareth came into this world: to destroy the work of da…
 
We misunderstand the difference between the God who is presented in the Old Testament and the seemingly contradictory one we see in the New Testament. Today's guest tells us that there are aspects of God's personality we haven't even begun to tap into! How often do you think of God's artistry, creativity and ... humility. Wait, God is humble? Yes, …
 
Lovesick: the latest audiobook I was privileged to narrate for Eric Gilmour. This makes my fourth one, and I’m not saying this just to promote it, but it’s hands down my favorite of his so far — and I’ve read all of them but one. I don’t know whether it’s because of the content, or the fact that every time I record an audiobook for Eric I feel the …
 
Updating a bit on where I've been for the last several months and why I've not been podcasting. If there's one keyword you take away from my intro and build up to the sample chapter, it's the word NORMALISATION. The second half of the episode is from the audiobook Seeing in the Spirit Made Simple, by Praying Medic. The chapter is called Seeing in t…
 
Just a quick FB Live I did a few weeks ago but hadn't had the time to edit into an audio podcast. I share some quick insights regarding paying the price, whatever that may be for us individually, when we have a vision or an image we can latch on to. The writer of Hebrews says of Jesus "...for the joy set before him, endured the cross." I contrast t…
 
Sorry for the poor sound quality for this episode. I tried doing my first Facebook Live podcast the other night, and this is the audio from the video. I cleaned it up as best as I could but it's not as crisp and clean sounding as normal. Anyway, I share a funny or confusing testimony about having had my wallet stolen, and then some thoughts on 2 Sa…
 
This week after a long hiatus from doing interviews, we welcome back on the podcast Carlos Rodriguez. This time it was over Skype as he was back in Raleigh, North Carolina and I’m here in Peru (I still thank God for technology!). You may recall he’s the author of the wildly popular Happy Sonship blog, and he’s got a new book coming out with Whitack…
 
Nine Lies People Believe About Speaking in Tongues is finally available in audiobook format. Discover the Biblical Truth about the controversial gift of speaking in tongues Have you ever been told that speaking in tongues is “not for today?’ Maybe you’ve heard people speak in tongues... and it seemed weird. You thought to yourself, “This is too str…
 
This week our episode centers around a sample chapter from my new audiobook for Nine Lies People Believe About Speaking in Tongues which is finally available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. Links mentioned in the show: One Bloody Road: The Glorious Way of Discipleship by John Garrett -- this is the book I'm currently doing the narration for, and un…
 
Sorry for the long delay in new episodes. Been busy recording audiobooks which takes quite a bit of my time, but provides some $ to stay on the mission field and not be in overdraft, which I have to admit, I really kinda like. In the meantime, you can get my recently narrated book by Eric Gilmour called Enjoying the Gospel for dirt cheap, while I a…
 
You may have noticed I’ve been posting fewer podcast episodes in recent months as well. I haven’t gone anywhere, but I have added a new habit to my lifestyle that in some ways has interfered with the time in my routine I used to have for writing and recording. I’ve been going to the gym. For the first time in my adult life, I have a gym membership,…
 
We have an exciting opportunity to translate our book Nine Lies People Believe About Speaking in Tongues into Spanish so we can distribute it in Peru where we serve as missionaries. We can’t do this without your help. The cost will be spread over the following stages of the process: The translation of our book 9 Lies People Believe About Speaking i…
 
This is the second half of the discussion I recorded with Dave Edwards a few months ago. We discussed preterism and futurism, which basically are diametrically opposed worldviews when it comes to end-times theology, and how each one shapes your outlook in obvious ways. I explain in the introduction why it took so long for this episode to get publis…
 
This week I talk with fellow author Michael King, author of the books Gemstones From Heaven, Feathers From Heaven, and The Gamer's Guide to the Kingdom of God. As you can probably guess, we talked about the subject matter of those first two books, and it was a very enlightening conversation. Topics covered: What is the purpose of gemstones? How doe…
 
Greetings friends, This week no episode of my podcast again this week while I edit the latest interview with another fellow author named Michael King. But in the meantime, here's the second of two parts I did on The Warrior's Cry Podcast, which I mentioned recently I had recorded. James decided to split the interview in two and this week we discuss…
 
Greetings friends, This week no episode of my podcast, but here's the first of two parts I did on The Warrior's Cry Podcast, which I mentioned recently I had recorded. James decided to split the interview in two and this week we discussed a bit of what I'm doing in Peru as well as unity among believers in both ministry and in our lives. Head on ove…
 
I recorded this episode about 6 weeks ago and never got around to editing it and publishing it online. I shared from an article of Kris Vallatton's called 6 Reasons to Write and spent the second half of the show giving my personal Kindle and Audio book recommendations in relation to leaving your safety net and taking the leap, albeit my point of re…
 
Hey guys, Sorry for the delay in new episodes. Recently I got a chance to catch up with David Edwards, as we're trying to post episodes together than more than once per year. This week I had not done a good job double checking that my Electro Voice mic was the input source for our skype call, so the result is crap quality sound, but stellar quality…
 
Hey guys, I know I've been slow to publish a new episode of the Fire On Your Head podcast in like 2 months, and also I haven't posted any new blog posts in a while. In the meantime, I'm excited to announce a new podcast I'm a part of called Warriors on the Wall. It's with three other guys named James Edwards, Travis Brown, and Lawrence DeBold, as w…
 
Hey friends, Sorry for the delay in posting a new episode. As I share in the beginning, I've been really struggling with allergy flare-ups since it's incredibly humid down here in the part of Peru where we live. This week I shared some thoughts and reflections on why we crave religious institutions and why is it so easy for human beings to desire s…
 
After spending the better part of the weekend in bed sick over the weekend, I got myself up on Monday to try kicking this cold that I've been fighting and recorded some of my thoughts into my microphone. I get a little preachy. But it's also with trepidation that I share these thoughts because I'm not trying to just be a critical armchair critic. T…
 
This week Carlos Rodriguez was visiting our ministry, Oikos, here in Peru and I was able to twist his arm and sit down with me for a podcast interview/discussion. This is a real bonus for me as I got to do it in person instead of over the internet. Carlos is one of the pastors of Catch the Fire - Raleigh, in North Carolina. We discussed the Brownsv…
 
Today’s episode was a long time coming, as it had been on my mind to invite today's guest on the show for quite a while, but I never went for it until a few months ago. If you are a subscriber to the podcast or a long-time listener of this show, then you have heard me refer to him on many occasions, sometimes as a point of reference when talking ab…
 
This week I’m privileged to have on the show my mate from down under Matthew Robert Payne. We spent nearly two hours talking about writing books on the kingdom of God, but specifically the prophetic. Early on we wound up opening a can of worms and discussing whether it’s ethical to pay someone for personal prophecy, or a better way of putting it: i…
 
Would you be shocked, offended or apathetic if I told you I haven’t had any female guests on the podcast in over 6 years? Yes, that’s right, somehow six years have gone by since the last time Fire On Your Head welcomed a female guest. Not because we’re sexist, but like as I explained in the introduction, none of the people I’ve invited on the podca…
 
This week Dave Edwards and I catch up and record it for your benefit. In a nutshell we discuss vision. What are you dreaming about? Do you have vision for it? Do you just need a little push or a kick to “go for it” and get out of the upper room? A phrase that came to me in our conversation was the question “Can you see it first? Or do you need to s…
 
Have you ever been told that speaking in tongues is “not for today?’ Maybe you’ve heard people speak in tongues and it seemed weird. You thought to yourself, “This is too strange to be God!” Or, maybe you believe that people can still speak in tongues today, but it’s not for everybody. Whether you’re skeptical or intrigued, whether you speak in ton…
 
This week I’m privileged to have Larry Sparks on the show. I’ve been following Larry for a little while now and recently took the plunge and invited him to be on the show. Larry Sparks is on a mission that can be captured in three words: Encounter, Activate, and Transform. His driving passion is to see people encounter the presence of the Holy Spir…
 
Finally, an interview for the first time in like what, 5 months? Today’s guest goes by the name of Chad Kidd. Chad and I have a mutual friend through Stephen Crosby, and we’re both a part of a group on Facebook about ‘the dones’ which has been a theme lately on the show and will be for a little while longer. There's the dones, and then there's the …
 
This week I finally get around to publishing an episode I recorded back in November before things got really busy for Lili and me. In today’s post I want to give you some updates about the feedback we got on the last episode (back in September) with Dan Daily about the Done with Church “movement”. Never have I gotten as much feedback for an episode…
 
Where has all the time gone? Literally. Sorry for the lack of updates in the last several months. We have been quite busy in ministry things down here in Peru, and with getting ready for the book launch, then we went to Canada to visit family over Christmas. On top of that moved into a new an unfinished apartment 9 days before our flight. Today's e…
 
Gone are the days when missionaries left their homeland to only have the chance to communicate to their friends and family via sketchy phone service and snail mail. The Internet allows instant—mobile even—access to just about anyone in the world. It’s a whole new world. Several months ago ChurchMag Staff Writer Chris Wilson had the opportunity to i…
 
This week on the podcast I have a very interesting conversation with Dan Dailey. As usually happens in internet land, I came across a blog post he wrote, wrote a response to it, he found it, and we became social media friends and eventually had a podcast conversation. To bring yourself up to speed, he wrote a blog post called Regarding the Done wit…
 
If you believed it would be 500 years before Jesus returned instead of that He may return any minute, would that affect the way you live your day-to-day life? I know for many the answer would be no. But unfortunately I know many more believers for whom it would make a world of difference. If we believe we’re in the last of the last days, and that J…
 
This week I am privileged to have on the podcast one of the men who's heavily influenced my ministry here in Peru. I'm talking about Mike Breen, author and phrase coiner. In the first part of our chat I ask Mike where he came up with the idea for Lifeshapes. In the second half of the conversation I ask Mike where Missional Communities came from. Mi…
 
This week I am privileged to have Mark Burgess back on the podcast for the first time in almost three years exactly to the month. We discuss family on mission and give some descriptions of experiences, good and bad, that we’ve had creating a discipleship culture here in Chorrillos, Peru. It’s not a matter of prioritizing family or the mission, but …
 
A few weeks ago I was privileged to be on The Praying Medic Podcast. Over the previous weekend PM and I had a three hour recorded Skype conversation on the heels of having just recently recorded a lengthy episode of my own podcast with Chris Wilson on blogging and writing. This is the second part of my interview with Praying Medic on his podcast to…
