Don’t YOU wash your pastor’s car?

Don’t you have your wife clean your pastor’s house, cause his wife is too busy?

Don’t you have your wife do the pastor’s laundry, and iron his shirts?

Don’t you have your wife watch his kids, so the pastor and his wife can have a date night out?

Don’t you wash your pastor’s car?

Don’t you mow the pastor’s grass?

Don’t you shine your pastor’s shoes?

Don’t you buy special gifts for your pastor’s birthday, pastor appreciation day, wedding anniversary, at Christmas time, Valentines Day, Father’s Day, Kwanza, Lent and Ramadan? You know how pastor likes to be eccumenical.

Don’t you pay all the tithes to the church to support the pastor so he and his family can live their best life now? Would a man rob God?

Aren’t you an armor bearer for the pastor, so that he can withstand the attacks of the enemy?

Hey, just what kind of a Christian are you anyway?

IS IT TIME TO THROW AWAY YOUR BIBLE?

Matthew 24:35.. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.(NASB)

No, it will never be time to throw away your bible. The Most High God’s Word is eternal. and the Secret of the Universe.
Even if the time should come, and I believe it will, that the evil forces now at play will come and rip your bibles from your hands, you may hide the LORD’S WORD in your hearts…..That my friends can never be taken away.

Psalm 119
11Your word I have treasured in my heart,
That I may not sin against You.(nasb)

A treasure is something to be guarded carefully, and stored against intrusion by those who would steal it. The words of our Most High God should be kept as such a precious thing and privilege to possess. Hidden and guarded from the enemy of our souls, who has always set about to steal, twist and pervert the Holy and Sacred Word of our LORD. That is what Satan has purposed from the beginning of time to deceive mankind.

To study earnestly the Word of the Eternal Creator God, Yahweh, is a sacred privilege he has given to his chosen, spirit filled servants, and to those who are seeking to know the Most High God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

John 8:31-32
The Truth Will Make You Free

31 So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
(nasb)

Therefore, while there is yet time, store this precious treasure in your hearts to strengthen you in your daily life, and to preserve you in the perilous days ahead.

We frequently receive requests for audio/video  of our conference talks, so I have edited “Unleashing the Next Generation: A New Legacy” for YouTube. I have edited out names, and stories that I have permission to use at conferences, but not for public release. Hopefully this doesn’t impact sound too much. I have also divided the talk into four parts to make it manageable.

Special thanks to Andrew Thompson, Associate pastor of Wellspring Community Church, Welland, and National Worship Director for Promise Keepers Canada, for permission to use his songs at the end of the videos.

To listen to “Unleashing the Next Generation__Part 1″ on YouTube, click Here.  I will release the others in the next day or two, as they are ready.

I know we are supposed to pray over our food, but c’mon folks, this thing is getting out of hand….and into our food.

I for one am pretty picky about what goes into my food, onto my table and into my mouth. How about you? I’m not sure how, or even if we can do anything about this.

Have the mad scientist’s gone even more stark staring? Have we become human lab rats to be experimented on?

I’m not in a place were I can raise my own food anymore. Even when I was, I still had to depend on outside sources for certain staples.

I don’t know about you guys, but this article just plain grossed me out.

LORD JESUS, help us!

A few months ago I attended a gathering and ran into an old friend of mine. We hadn’t talked or seen each other in at least a year and a half or so. We shared a quick light hug and immediately I realized that this person wasn’t particularly elated to see me. I started a conversation in order to hopefully catch up with this person so we could share what‘s been happening in our lives. Well, let’s just say that I was the one that had to be responsible for keeping the conversation going. This was not a reunion . Then it dawned on me as I kept trying to keep the conversation alive that this person and I were no longer friends. As I drove home that night, I admit that it did sting a bit. A slight heaviness came over me and I reflected on our years in…

Defender of the Weak

The Bible says God will take revenge, God will defend the poor the widow and the fatherless, the alien,the outcast and the abandoned. Just some of the many, many Bible verses expressing God’s concern for the poor:

Deut 24:17: Do not deprive the alien or fatherless of justice.

Ps 7:9: “O righteous God, who searches minds and hearts, bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure.”

Prov 22:22:“Do not exploit the poor because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court, for the LORD will take up their case and will plunder those who plunder them.”

Prov 29:7:“The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern.”

Rom12:19:Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the…

So, how do you get what John Lake had? OK, not by laying on his grave like the foolish so-called “grave suckers” are doing. These people that are going around to now dead Christians who were known to have operated in the healing or other powerful gifts of the Spirit of God, and laying on their graves erroneously believing they will be imparted with the same anointing that the dead Christian had.

You would think these people were living in the dark ages instead of 2014 with the knowledge of God right in their bibles and readily available.

Then, how do you get what John Lake had? You get it by doing what John Lake did. You say, how did John Lake get what he had? Again, he got it not by laying on some anointed dead Christians grave….he got it by studying what the Lord Jesus Christ did, and then doing that. Even our Lord Jesus only did what the Father told him to do. And it worked.

We learn, and we receive by imitating what the Master did, and following his instruction. There are no shortcuts. It is done by diligent obedience. We need the same spiritual hunger that John Lake had. We need to hunger for the Bread of Life; hunger for more of the Lord Jesus Christ, not for cake that’s devoid of spiritual nourishment that does nothing to satisfy or benefit us spiritually.
