The Good News in all the Bad News!

Could we be standing at the brink of America’s next great and perhaps final REVIVAL?? Think about it…. politicians of all stripes have proven there are ZERO answers coming from Washington…the economy is at the verge of collapse due to TRILLIONS of dollars of unmanageable debt and unfunded liabilities…healthcare is becoming a joke with people left and right losing coverage and premiums rising…morality and decency are considered old-fashioned…violence invades our streets and our schools…GOD is mocked at every turn…there is NO HOPE in this world!!!  THAT, my friends, is a PERFECT time for GOD’s people to pray, believe and EXPECT the SUPERNATURAL! Just what will happen when your neighbors can no longer call the Dr for help, but they know you have power with GOD to pray for their sick child… when they cannot feed their family but they see GOD providing for yours…. when their family is falling apart but your household is BLESSED??  I hear the sound of REVIVAL!!! Can I get a witness here???

Violence in our Schools! Pray 4 America!

Prophecy Moment from yesterday’s message … Increasing Violence in our Schools…
2 teachers killed by students last week in NV & MA

2 Tim. 3:1-4 THE MESSAGE Paraphrase. “Don’t be naive. There are difficult times ahead. As the end approaches, people are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God.”

“If you succumb to the temptation of using violence, unborn generations will reap a long and desolate night of bitterness, and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos. ” Martin Luther King Jr.

THE FACTS

1) We pushed GOD, Prayer & the Bible out of our schools.
2) We teach our teens they can abort their unwanted babies, because they are just animals, just an inconvenience, no life is sacred or precious.
3) We push violence, murder, sex and pornography into their young minds through music, movies and social media.
4) We teach our children they were not created by GOD, they are just another evolved animal.
Then, we have the audacity to act shocked and surprised when these teens act like the soulless animals we have told them they are! PRAY FOR AMERICA!

Band-Wagon Fans!

GO CARDS! Proud of my home-town St Louis team! Whether they take the World Series again or not, they are champions! Go Team! … Now, let me be very honest and make an application here. I am the cheapest kind of fan. I have not been to a game in a couple of years, even though I have FREE tickets to any regular game. I have not watched any games on TV this year. I don’t own a jacket or T-shirt or hoodie. I have not invested a dime in the franchise. But I can certainly bask in the glory of any victory! A CHEAP fan! Does that remind you any Christians you know? Never tithe or support the church. Never sacrifice or serve for the extension of the Kingdom. Never show up for a workday, or a prayer meeting. Never buy a T-shirt or clean-up the kitchen. Never attend services regularly. But have a very successful outreach, or a Huge Giveaway, have positive press, make a huge impact in the city, and they will be there, front and centre! THAT’s My CHURCH! GO TEAM! Everybody loves a WINNER! Cheap fans! This should make you smile or squirm.  🙂
But, thank GOD for the Faithful, those who understand it takes discipline, determination, focus and passion to create a Champion Team, or church, or ministry! And, I WILL watch a game or two this week! ❤

Another Righteous Rant :-)

Can you handle a little RIGHTEOUS RANT today? 🙂  This is from my file I occasionally post from which is called “Down Through More Than 35 Years of Preaching & Pastoral Ministry” . Here it is… I never cease be amazed by the number of people who have never attended one day of Bible College or Seminary, never spent 5 minutes being a pastor, don’t know the difference between a lexicon and a commentary, cannot tell you the 2nd letter of the Greek alphabet, but somehow they happen to know more about the Bible and church leadership than any pastor they have ever met. Now, granted, it IS possible, that a particular individual is on fire for GOD, and their particular spiritual leader is a cold, back-slidden, pagan in the pulpit. That is possible. But in my experience, what is more probable is that this has much more to do with rebellion, an un-teachable spirit, a spirit of you-do- it- MY-way- or- else and a spirit of not being willing to learn because they know it all already. And HORRORS, to change their way of thinking would mean they were WRONG! The GOOD news is, over 35 years of ministry, I have seen countless hard hearts humbled before GOD, and turned into soft clay, moldable in the Master’s Hands. LORD, keep us all pliable, mold us and make us!” Myles Holmes Ministries
