I’m not criticizing prayer, as Paul said pray without ceasing. And Christians are to be ready in season and out of season. But it looks like pastors and the public school system are having back-to-school prayer specials. They even post photos of pastors and professing Christians touching the doors and doorknobs of classrooms as they
The signs of a healthy & biblical Church & how I used my COVID stimulus funds to resist socialism – Podcast #41 When a Christian applies for membership at a local church. It becomes a solemn duty of that church to investigate the candidate before extending their right hand of fellowship to him or her.
In this chapter we will see God’s sovereignty and the Doctrine of the Trinity throughout. We will also see the doctrines of predestination, election, limited atonement (a particular atonement), intersession, the preeminence of Christ, and the perseverance of the saints. We will divide this ‘priestly prayer’ and this sermon into three parts, In verses 1-5
This is to be expected in countries like Turkey. But it’s already occurring in America, as street preachers are increasingly being assaulted and arrested for preaching in the streets. It’s interesting to see the online chatter, as to how some Christians in America are responding to this. Christians within America ought to respond with more
This sounds like a plot right out of a movie. Whereas 44 year old John Grazioli walks into a Catholic “Church” (word used loosely) in Erie Pennsylvania, to confess to the priest that he had just shot and killed his wife. However while Grazioli is still on scene, the church notifies the police. The police
UPDATE 06/03/18: The U.S Supreme Court ruled in a 7-2 decision, in partial favor of the Baker. However had the SCOTUS ruled against the Baker, Christians must obey God’s Law over mans. More about the courts decision here. I urge all Christians to begin praying for this court and their justices. Moreover, Jack Phillips and his
Last Thanksgiving I spent my holiday in an ICU unit at the hospital (and their food in my room was GREAT). On Thanksgiving Day last year I received a five-fold diagnoses of having five different problems with my heart. Then only four weeks later my heart went ‘from bad to worse,’ whereas on Jan 25th,
Apparently this video includes some unintended humor (or embarrassment). I had just bought a new pair of jeans, and this morning was my first time wearing them. It wasn’t until after this video (in editing), that I noticed a tag was still on my right rear pants leg. Please pray for this trip (Lord willing).
Since my Cardiac Arrest my Doctors have been closely monitoring the progress of my heart. I’ve have reasonable strength, but only for a short while. So last week my Cardiologist told me to walk longer, to increase my “endurance.” But since my heart is now “Pacemaker reliant,” I was apprehensive to walk too far (lacking
After preaching, the Lord provided some opportunities for prayer, conversations, and Q&A. Music ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ by Jackie Evancho. UPDATE: Yesterday at church a sister questioned me about a video that she watched of me open-air preaching. She advised that I preached something similar to modalism, or oneness Pentecostalism, which denies the Biblical Trinity. When I
The following are additional remarks that I forgot to mention in this video. I’ll be resting this week. My Ejection Fraction has increased from 20% to 40%, I am so thankful for that progress. But I still have Cardiomyopathy, COPD, Congestive Heart Failure / Systolic Heart Failure, and I still rejoice in that. Lord willing
My surgery today was postponed until next week. Hey at least I got to leave the hospital wearing a new pair of non-slip hospital socks. These ones even have a smiley face on them. Lord willing after this soon coming surgery, I hope to be back in the streets soon, preaching the glorious Gospel. When
Note: I fully understand that God is Sovereign King over all things, and none of us have the ability to stay alive (nor die) if it is not the Lords will. Hitting the crossroads of Philippians chapter 1, between verses 21 thru 23 (to die and be with the Lord), to verses 24 thru 26,
In this video I cover the cardioversion, the cardiac arrests, being clinically dead (what did I experience), the Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (aka ICD), encouraging Scriptures, the hospital, needing to change from open-air preaching vs other methods (for a season), my recovery, giving thanks, and what about you? FYI I forgot to explain what the Law of
