“If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams, and he gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods’—which you have not known—‘and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams, for the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.” Deuteronomy 13:1-3 Continue reading
Now when Jesus had come into Peter’s house, He saw his wife’s mother lying sick with a fever. So He touched her hand, and the fever left her. And she arose and served them. Matt 8:14-15 Continue reading
This just in – it is perfectly alright for you to judge!
This is the most exciting news for Christianity! I, personally, am thrilled about it.
For far too long I have had scripture thrown in my face Continue reading
One day Paul and Barnabas entered a city and healed a man that had never walked.
Now when the people saw what Paul had done, they raised their voices, saying in the Lycaonian language, “The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!” Continue reading
You may have seen the news on what the city government of Houston is doing.
Some local pastors have been issued subpoena’s to turn over certain sermons about homosexuality and may mention Houston’s openly gay mayor. Of course it is the buzz on Facebook and Twitter.
Houston area pastor’s and minister’s across the state are telling the government has absolutely no reason to bully congregations who are speaking out about what they believe. It’s none of the government’s business.
It seems this started with a new bill that has been introduced that will, among other things, allow men who identify as women to use the restrooms of their choice – and vice versa.
Of course the church would be against that. What person in their right mind wouldn’t be?
But silencing opponents that preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Word of God is not a new thing. It happened in the early days of the church when Peter and John preached in the name of Jesus. In that case the religious leaders caught the apostles,
and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. Acts 4:18
But it was too late! The message had been given and
many of those who heard the word believed; and the number of the men came to be about five thousand. Acts 4:4
That’s the fear of government officials, kings, presidents, senators, congressmen, mayors, despots, tyrants, and dictators – loosing their power and ruling ability to a Higher Power!
They fear the preaching of the Word of God. It convicts of sin and presents the only redemption available to mankind.
Peter said it best.
Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12
The name of JESUS!
Abba, in Jesus’ name, give the pastor’s and minister’s the boldness to speak Your word! YES&AMEN
As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:10-11 Continue reading
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous — and how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, Continue reading
