Enthusiasm – Faith Set on Fire, Fresh Fire from Heaven

Enthusiasm it is said is faith set on fire. Well, given the amount of unbelieving believers in the church full of doubt and unbelief, it seems some folks obviously need some fresh fire from heaven.

The word enthusiasm in the Greek contains the word “theo” which speaks of deity. Theo being the divine God reveals to humanity the source of enthusiasm.  Society has mastered the art of consumerism, but after most of us get what we want, we no longer want what we’ve got and feel quite disenchanted after the quest of acquisition is over.

That being said people often seek innumerable asms, but it is only when we get a God asm that we enter divine ecstasy and discover joy full of glory overflowing radiantly. The joy of the Lord alone is our strength and source of satisfaction (see Nehemiah 8:10). In God’s Presence there is fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11).

So get God in your life and the Holy Spirit will breathe within you divine life, imparting into your heart enthusiasm and causing your mental spasm to be freed so you can live fully. Enter the joy of the Lord and discover the joy of living spiritually. Move being mental reasoning and taste and see God’s goodness daily.

Ayatollah Khomeini – Reflection Or Misrepresentation of God?

Ayatollah Khomeini meaning in Farsi

The reflection of God, but in reality

This could be disputed wholeheartedly

Because misrepresentations diligently

Exert and assert their religious orthodoxy

Nevertheless this does not assure accuracy

According to religion, opinion, and divinity

The Ayatollah was asinine to very many

As for countless Iranians he was most holy

But as for his claim to fame, it’s controversy

A skillful political tool indeed for any clergy

To arrest the attention of media spiritually

Yet demonizing America so arrogantly

Taking U.S. hostages at the embassy

Keeping them for 444 days mercilessly

Although sending a message successfully

Awaking the world to a nation’s religiosity

While breeding intense hatred and animosity

Galvanizing a nation with anti-American oratory

Ousting the leading shah without hesitancy

Bringing about an ideological shift powerfully

Carving out for Iran a position internationally

Stopping capitalistic imperialists seeking oil only

At the expense of the Iranian people and economy

For all the wrong and hatred Khomeini created

We must also acknowledge sincerely and honestly

The pride he restored to his homeland and nation

Unfortunately it came through hostility and oppression

Rigid rules, uneasy tradition, and brutal extermination

Of dissidents, and for women the veil and imprisonment

Enslavement and removal of civil rights for the people

So Khomeini could have the facade of societal approval

A charade of monstrous proportions and distortions

An evil oligarchy and demonic theocracy for Khomeini

Mesmermize the masses masterfully against the mighty

“The great Satan” which has made the world drunk

By reason of its music, movies, TV, and media

Yet by simultaneously creating a terrorist state

A revolution of hate and death is Khomeini’s fate.

Cleanse Your House of the Curse of Complaining

This day in prayer and meditation in God’s Word I have located the thief that has been stealing my blessing (our blessing).
 
A foul spirit of complaining, the majority of which occurs through our mouths!
 
Know assuredly they who murmur against the Lord shall be swiftly punished and demoted from their heavenly calling, being brought down to menial labor and servitude (see Joshua 9:18-21).
 
The curse of hard labor came upon the murmurers because they refused to believe and continually complained (Joshua 9:22-23).
 
If you want to murmur and complain against your spouse and the Lord, I assure you your life will only get worse because God does not bless complainers. In fact God makes complainers lives more hard and difficult, doing unto them according to their words (Numbers 14:28).
 
So that being said, I urge you to leave your complaints.  I don’t want them in my house, my heart, nor do I want them to fill my ears.  I’m going forward into the promised land.  Enter into such joy of the Lord with me, but your heart must change .
 
The choice is yours!
 
Choose this day whom you will serve – God, yourself, or the devil.
 
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19).
 
If you choose to be blessed, no complaining will be tolerated. So if you want to keep your bitterness and complaining, stay with the devil and don’t profess to be a Christian.
 
If you want to cleanse your heart, be holy, and be happy – you shall be free to live the abundant life in Christ and be fully received and celebrated by God.
 
However there shall be no more complaining. From this day forward men must put their foot down. Husbands tell your wivews, if you are going to live in my house, dwell under my roof, eat my food, use my AC, drive my car, use my gas……no more complaining, no more bad attitude, no more stinking thinking, no more whining, no more cursing me with a foul tongue. No more! No more! No more!
 
Fall on your knees and get your heart right before God or don’t come home. 
 
Tell your wife and kids you love them, but in loving them you have an obligation to speak the truth to them and demand the best of them (yourself too).
 
Your best friends bring out the best in you!  Hence I am your best friend.  I don’t flatter you, I apply pressure to bring out the best in you.  If you want to stay low and be miserable the rest of your life, stay there and find some miserable comforters.  Misery loves company.
 
If however you want to be a true man or woman with honor and integrity, cleanse your heart and come home. Fall on your knees and call upon the Lord to fix, renew, and give you newness of life.
 
You are loved unconditionally, but you are being challenged to grow into manhood and womanhood.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). 
 
“Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report; if there by any virtue, any praise, think on these things…..and the God of peace shall be with you.” (Philippians 4:4-9)
 
God is challenging you to be empowered, be equipped, be renewed, and be your best.
 
Only as you humble yourself and rid your heart of arrogance will you be blessed.
 
All my love accompanied with truth to set the captives free!
If there is one wish I have for you, it is that you find peace.  The remedy and prescription is stated above.

Holy Spirit Etiquette and Praying with Violent Faith – Todd Bentley, Lee Grady, and Charisma

Somebody sent me Lee Grady’s recent article (posted below), which I agree with in part. Undoubtedly unusual occurrences and methods are at times prompted by the Holy Spirit, but the normal practice is to walk in the fruit of the Holy Spirit while yielding to and giving place to God’s mighty manifestations.

I remember when I was ministering throughout France one guy came to the altar with a spirit of pride and began speaking in demonic tongues. I felt led by the Spirit to hit him in the stomach and dislodge the demon troubling him. I gave him a good beating to say the least, but honestly the breakthrough never came because of my fleshly violence. The breakthrough came when I simply asked (well, kind of commanded in the spirit of boldness – to the joy and perhaps embarassment of his wife) the man to get on his knees.

Once the man was on his knees and surrendered his life to Jesus, then the drama stopped and the gentle Holy Spirit powerfully did his work in the man’s heart. How do I know the Spirit led the unusual altercation at the altar which was unordinary for me? Well, the man wasn’t offended in the least and went away happy. Perhaps he was simply so hungry for God that he was gracious to get ahold of the Lord any way possible. Nevertheless there was something accomplished with boldness and gentleness simultaneously.

We therefore must be led by the Spirit to love and lift people into the loving Presence of a living God. (Romans 8:14)

BAM! POW! WHEN PRAYER MINISTRY Gets VIOLENT
-by J. Lee Grady (Charisma).

Lakeland Revival leader Todd Bentley’s unusual prayer methods
have triggered questions about Holy Spirit etiquette. For weeks the
blogosphere has been sizzling with comments, pro and con, about
the unusual ministry style of Todd Bentley, the leader of the
Lakeland Revival in Florida. Thousands of people have watched the
tattooed evangelist shout “Bam! Bam!” as he prays for the sick and
interviews those who say they were instantly healed.

Nobody could ever accuse Bentley of lacking zeal. And he always
gives Jesus the credit for the healings he announces on God TV
every night. But he has come under fire because of video clips
from a sermon in which he says the Holy Spirit told him to use
violent means to heal people.

The sermon, preached in Lakeland and posted on YouTube,
features Bentley demonstrating how he (1) banged a woman’s
crippled legs “like a baseball bat” on a stage; (2) tackled,
mounted
and choked a man to free him from a demon; (3) shoved a Chinese
man to the ground to pray for him (causing the man to lose a tooth);
(4) kicked an older woman in the face with his biker boot to heal
her; and (5) “leg-dropped” a pastor—a professional wrestling
tactic,
popularized by Hulk Hogan, in which the aggressor jumps in the
air and lands on his opponent with one leg outstretched.

When we asked Bentley about his unorthodox methods, he
assured Charisma that none of the people were hurt and that
many were healed. He also explained that British evangelist Smith
Wigglesworth, a legend in the hall of fame of Pentecostal
preachers, used similar methods.

So if Wigglesworth healed a man by punching him in the stomach,
and Bentley sees similar results by using techniques borrowed
from the World Wrestling Entertainment, does that mean we
should teach all altar workers to become more aggressive?

I know that people have been healed in the meetings in Lakeland. I
know of a woman from South Carolina who was healed of cystic
fibrosis while sitting in one of Bentley’s services. (She was never
touched by anyone.) I also know a man from California who was
healed of sleep apnea while watching the Lakeland revival on
television. Jesus is most definitely still in the healing business.

I also know that Bentley is not performing Hulk Hogan stunts from
the stage in Lakeland every night. But because his comments
about violent prayer have been so widely broadcast, we need to
call a timeout and make it clear that hitting people is wrong, period.
Bentley’s teaching on unorthodox prayer methods should include a
disclaimer: “DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME.” Here are three reasons why:

1. The Holy Spirit is gentle. Jesus boldly drove the moneychangers
out of the temple with a whip. But when He prayed for sick people,
there is no record of Him head-banging or leg-dropping anyone. He
rebuked evil spirits authoritatively, but He never hit, slapped,
choked, mounted or kicked a person. He was meek, which means
He knew how to control His strength, and He never threw His
weight around.

When He commissioned His followers to heal the sick, Jesus told
them to “lay” hands on them (Mark 16:18). Since gentleness is
part of the fruit of the Holy Spirit (along with kindness—see Gal.
5:22-23), any ministry we do should be tempered with mercy and
concern.

2. If we minister in the flesh, we will reap flesh. Several years ago I
was standing near the stage in a large meeting when a visiting
evangelist said he wanted to pray for all the ministers in the room.
Immediately some ushers yanked me up to the platform and the
man of God raced over to “pray” for me. Before I knew it, I was
assaulted in the name of the Lord.

Whack! The guy hit me so hard that I fell down and held my face in
my hands to hide my grimace. The skin on my neck was stinging.
When I finally went back to my seat, a friend ran over to
congratulate me, saying, “Wow, I saw you go down under the
power!” I had to grit my teeth and ask the Lord to help me forgive
the preacher who inflicted pain instead of a holy impartation.

Why do we think that more bodies on the floor equals “more
anointing”—especially when the evangelist shoves people to the
ground or slaps them silly? To build a ministry on such foolish
theatrics is to trust in the arm of the flesh.

3. Somebody’s going to get hurt. We reported last week that a
Tennessee man sued his charismatic church because its pastoral
staff did not provide the proper “catchers” when he fell down
during
a prayer meeting last year. Matthew Lincoln of Knoxville said he
struck the hard floor of the sanctuary with his head and aggravated
a disc problem in his back, resulting in the need for surgery.

I don’t know the specifics of the situation in Knoxville, Tenn., and
it may be that this church has done everything possible to provide
a caring atmosphere in their meetings. Plus, the man suing the
church does not say anyone hit him or knocked him over. But
serious accidents are bound to happen if we don’t stress the
importance of ministering with gentleness and wisdom.

In our zany charismatic world we often let our zeal run wild. I’ve
been in services in which all kinds of injuries happened. Once I
watched a 300-pound man fall on a frail woman. I’ve seen heads
hit metal chairs. I’ve seen evangelists step on people’s arms and
legs. We may say the Holy Spirit is moving, but—more often than
we want to admit—our chaos may be a sign of our immaturity.

Please understand me. I desperately want the power of God to
invade our churches. I’ve been in meetings in which the Lord’s
glory was so thick that no one could stand up. I have felt the
weight of His presence fall like a blanket on a congregation. And I
remember falling to the floor when I got within four feet of a humble
Indian preacher who barely touched people on the forehead when
he prayed for them.

We don’t have to force things to happen. God’s power is real. May
we never settle for a man-made imitation.

Intellectually Incarcerated

Intellectually incarcertated

What on earth does that mean?

It means I am bound to make money

To survive and sustain myself daily

Therefore my gifts, talents, and abilities

Must be maximized for profitability

Thereby I must put on hold my creativity

Until I secure investors to undergird me

Until I figure out and master monetization

Of my intellectual property and creations

Hence I do understand a bit about incarceration

Although by no means is this my heartfelt intention

On the contrary, I loathe all about the penitentiary

I just want to live freely and express myself in liberty

God help me break free of these financial constraints

That continually seek to enslave and hold my creativity.

Broke, But Rich in Love

Broke, but rich in love

Thank the Lord God above

For this I merrily think of

When the bills are mounting

The creditors continually collecting

The interest rates rapidly accruing

The car falling apart and rusting

My body aging and hair graying

The house needing a good painting

The air conditioner strangely squeeking

The food in the refrigerator quickly going

Our insurance premiums surprisingly growing

All of these concerns and cares do continue

Nevertheless when I happily behold you!

My stresses fade and my day is now made

All heaviness of heart is replaced with gladness

All sorrow is swallowed up with your radiance

Your smile soothes my soul and makes me whole

Your touch transcends my troubles and renews me

Your gentle words comfort and tenderly nourish me

Lifting me to a much higher place full of divine grace

Reminding me that God above will surely let me taste

The promised land as I daily embark to see His face

With steadfast patience and faith run this lifelong race

My darling with you I can endure everything and boldly chase

My noble dreams and desires with burning unquenchable fire

Delighting in you as we together walk hand in hand through

Trials and tribulations, no matter our socio-economic station

Because unconditional love sustains and brings transformation

Therefore I rejoice in my inner wealth, not outward accumulation.

Divine Comedy – Awaking Humanity

Life is a glorious divine comedy

Set forth by the all wise divinity

Continuously challenging humanity

To think again more thoroughly

To examine things more carefully

Before speaking forth prematurely

Before judging others presumptuously

Before rendering conclusions hastily

Because God above knows the heart of all

Without the Creator, no man can stand tall

For God above with love gives us breath daily

The Lord of life breathes within us spiritually

Dead our bodies are without the spirit inwardly

Igniting, inspiring, inviting, and illuminating

Cultivating, quickening, encouraging, and captivating

The Maker of heaven and earth in us gives new birth

To love, life, laughter, faith, hopes, dreams, and worth

Even self-worth as we realize in God’s image we are made

Hopefully sooner rather than later after we have fully paid

With our lives, blood, sweat, and tears spending all our years

Pursuing and chasing useless trivialties and incongruencies

As we progressively awaken to our own shallow insecurity

Without relationship with our Maker we dwell in obscurity

Therefore swallow your pride and exercise some humility

As you do and walk with God humbly, you shall live happily.

Soul Winning and Evangelism Training – Effective Outreach to Seek and Save Lost Souls, Church Growth

Soul winning and evangelism training with worldwide evangelist Paul F. Davis who has won souls across the globe touching over 50 countries and 6 continents.

http://www.PaulFDavis.com
RevivingNations@yahoo.com

Equip and empower your church to seek and save the lost. Unprecedented church growth, harvest of souls, and revival now!

Jesus said, “I will make you fishers of men” (Mark 1:17).

Fishing happens usually one of two ways: with a hook and a net.

I liken the net approach to fishing nations, going into all the world to “seek and save the lost” (see Luke 19:10). Yet the evangelist Philip was also skillful in one-on-one evangelism. Being led by the Spirit of God to leave a great revival full of multitudes of people where he was preaching in the city of Samaria, Philip was taken by God to Gaza on the backside of the desert to speak to an Ethiopian of great authority (see Acts 8).

The divine appointment orchestrated by God was beautifully arranged, because when Philip arrived and showed up the Ethiopian was reading the prophet Isaiah from the Bible (see Acts 8:26-29). Philip immediately asked him, “Do you understand what you are reading?” (v. 30)

Interestingly, Philip’s evangelistic approach began in the form of a question. Jesus was often no different in His approach. The Lord asked His disciple Peter, “Who do men say that I am? Who do you say that I am?” (see Matthew 16:13,15).

Here are some good soul winning and evangelism questions to use to open hearts in route to salvation when you converse with people on a daily basis.

– Have you discovered the grace of God?

– Have you ever felt burdened and weighed down by sin?

– Have you ever felt guilt and shame, but didn’t know what to do about it?

– Do you know how to be reconciled to your heavenly Father and experience the blessings of heaven?

– Have you experienced the embrace of our loving God?

– Do you know the fullness of life available to you in Jesus Christ?

– Have you experienced the joy of newness of life?

– Do you know the Prince of peace who quiets all stress and stress in your life? 

– Do you have any questions about God or things I can pray for you concerning?

– What is the best thing and the worst thing you have ever heard about God?

– Have you ever known religion and religious people to misrepresent the heart of God?

– How do you and your family feel about God?

A Beautiful Cardinal Flew Toward Me

As I walked into my bedroom what did I see?

I looked through the window in the distance

And to my great joy saw God answer for me

A personal prayer I had uttered weeks earlier

A simple and heartfelt request for a cardinal

A beautiful bird I had not seen in some time

Why I desired to see this beautiful red bird

I know not particularly, but it appealed to me

Perhaps cardinals in Florida are a bit of a rarity

Beyond the black birds and bluejays secondarily

From my days as a boy with a birdhouse out back

Sometimes the squirrels the bluejays would attack

Yet today this gorgeous cardinal with an orange beek

Was strangely still as he was listening for me to speak

Fully red from pointed fluffy head to luscious tail

Upon seeing this bird it made me feel quite well

Although in the distance sitting upon my fence

I somehow knew this lovely bird was God sent

For that Sunday in my office I had been writing

But not only writing, also whistling a worship song

A powerful church song in my spirit all the day long

Feeling a sense of sweet serendipity, I watched intently

When suddenly increasing my joy the bird flew to me

Drawing near to hear equally with intense curiosity

Surprisingly straight to me, directly toward the window

Stopping to rest just feet from me upon the clothes line

My spirit rejoiced within, my mind content and sublime

For not only was I aroused by nature but my loving Creator

Who truly answers my heartfelt prayer, proving He does care

Therefore I shall not be trapped by unbelief’s foul snare

Because I know my God knows atop my head every hair

My heavenly Father’s ears are open, His eyes looking down

Undoubtedly upon me His marvelous grace does abound.
