I am attaching a video I just received from Pastor Thomas Peetz in Concord, N.H. Along with one my son-in-law, David Hardin shot.
We were in the bell tower of the church George Whitfield founded and under which he is buried. (See my previous blog.)
This bell was cast by Paul Revere. To me it rings out Freedom.
Thank God for Freedom to Worship!!!!!!!Read More
In 2017 on a broadcast of Believer’s Voice of Victory with Gloria Copeland, I taught on “The Great Awakening” out of which the United States of America was born.
The greatest preacher of “The Great Awakening” was George Whitfield from England. He crossed the Atlantic 13 times with the burning message of salvation by grace alone. And he traversed for years up and down the 13 colonies with that message and with the firm conviction that the 13 colonies should be “one nation under God.”Read More
Yesterday I gave attention all day to the study of the Book of Ezekiel for my upcoming 3BI class. I knew Branden and Destanie invited me to share on their monthly streamed live prayer meeting for the State of California. Just as soon as I stood up from the computer where I’d been working on the study guide, a supernatural outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Russia affected California and eventually my life as I received the Holy Spirit baptism in 1967 during the Charismatic Movement. I looked to see if I had the details recorded. And I did! I just read from my journals what I am copying below.Read More
In 1981 I edited a book for Dr. Lester Sumrall entitled then You Hold the Reins.
I’d misplaced my copy and wanted to refer to the original edition for the upcoming class. I ordered it online and I had to pay $74.00. Today I was reading it and several things impacted me. Dr. Sumrall indeed knew how to take his dominion, his authority. The following quote I posted on Twitter:
“There never was a Goliath capable of standing before any of God’s David’s.
The devil cannot create an image of strength which God’s people cannot destroy.”
The Lord told Kenneth E. Hagin that whatever happened in America happened because the church allowed it to happen. In that light consider the following from Dr. Sumrall:
“The most powerful living organism on the earth today is the Church—the very Body of Christ.”Read More
Yesterday morning, I learned of two more friends who had moved to Heaven. As I was thinking about how many I know that have transitioned there recently and the wonder of that place…. (I was in fact thinking about how they would react in their first moment there.)
As I was considering this, my daughter-in-law sent me a video taken January 24, 2017 at 9:20 pm just after my grandson, Isaac’s, second visit to Heaven. These were not dreams. The first time the Lord said, “Isaac get your deedle-deedle (his blanky) and go get on your bed. I’m going to take you to heaven.”Read More
Poetry is an under-appreciated art form in modern times. God used it in the Hebrew of the Older Testament. Much of the original Hebrew rhymes. There are also many “plays on words.” All this is missed in translations.This morning I read again the following anonymous poem from the front of The Authority of the Believer by John A. MacMillan. If every individual in the Body of Christ would make the last two lines their confession, we would make huge strides in our development into the image of the Master.Read More
How Do We Obey This Scripture Now? I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.-First Timothy 2:1-4Read More
We have two scheduled phone calls for corporate prayer weekly.
Wednesday at 8 AM CST and Sunday at 3 PM CST. And at noon on Wednesdays we have a livestream prayer meeting from Prayer Mountain in the Ozarks.
From time to time (its happened only twice) we have the ability to call a special prayer meeting. We call it an emergency prayer call. Though by no means do we have the intent that the sky is falling and we have to pray.Read More
Gal 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son…And now we await the fulness of the time, known to the Father, when He will send Him forth again! Hallelujah!Signs of that soon coming time are everywhere evident.In the heavens. In the earth.Read More
Today I read Psalm 73. I knew basically what it was about. It is about seeing the wicked prosper and not understanding it “UNTIL I went into the Sanctuary of God, then I understood their end” (v.17).
But the Holy Spirit so quickened another verse to me that I have meditated it ever since. And I wanted to share it with others. I texted it to my children and grandchildren. I tweeted it. And now I am sending it to you.
