LampPost Christian Publications from Cypress Ministries.
Knowing Who God Is, Believing what God says,
and Worshipping God because HE IS GOD.
Following in Jesus' footsteps along the pathway of faith to spiritual health
and healing, as we simply come to know God; while helping people God's
way and making Jesus' name known.
Hello, and thank you for visiting our publications website. Cypress Ministries is the biblical writing, coaching, and teaching ministry for the Pathway of Faith Foundation and Mountain View CCFM.
First and foremost, we seek with all our hearts to worship and honor God with our lives, and in all that we do. Our sole purpose for this ministry is to make Jesus' name known. We desire to help others who are hungry for God's Word (and thirsty for a deeper relationship with Him); and who are seeking to learn how to listen to the leading of His Holy Spirit while walking in the way of faith (one step at a time), to spiritual health and healing.
It can be difficult to understand how God’s Word applies to our lives now-a-days, so we want to help others to learn how to walk out life, not only in a manner pleasing to God, but to also see how the truth of His Word connects with our everyday life now, thus enabling us to live victoriously through Christ. And thereby developing a heart of worship that will honor God, and allow His light to be shown through us to others.
Often times when going through different stages in life,
it is hard to understand how God's Word applies to our situations..
it can also be very difficult to focus on Him, instead of the struggles we are going through.
We read of a man in the Bible in Acts 8, who was hungry (and thirsty) for a better understanding of God's Word, so God sent a servant along side of him to help.
Then the Spirit said to Philip, "Go near and overtake this chariot." So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, "Do you understand what you are reading?" And he said, "How can I, unless someone guides me?" And he asked Philip to come up and sit with him (Acts 8:29-31 NKJV).
Basically Philip asked this man, "Do you understand what you just read?"
And the man said, "How can I, unless someone explains it to me..."
And this is what we desire to do, and what this website is about. Please know, we are NOT trying to persuade you to believe one thing over the other, or to pressure you into a specific doctrine (or denomination). We believe that GOD'S WORD is inspired by the Holy Spirit and it is HE who is the teacher.... We just desire to share what we have learned, and to help you to study God's Word for YOURSELF, so that YOU know and can understand what He has said, and how to apply it to your life today. SO THAT you will also know truth for yourself, and will be able to discern a biblical accuracy and the difference between the truth and a lie (or a watered down version of the truth) when you hear it. So with this website we offer you several free resources as study aids.
We truly believe God desires His people to KNOW HIM personally, not to only know more about Him. We are simply His servants, and willing vessels who want to make HIS NAME known, and to help spread His Good News where ever God would lead us to.
This is what the LORD, who saves you,
the Holy One of Israel, says:
"I am the LORD your God, who teaches
you to do what is good, who leads
you in the way you should go."
