Sexual integrity

Yet another media celebrity loses his job over sexual abuse allegations.

It has become a tsunami!

This is not rocket science people, let me give you a little advice has worked for me in marriage & ministry & public life for more than 35 years.

* Live for God.

* Stay in the Word & prayer… without ceasing.

* Have eyes & heart set on your wife only.

* Never, ever be alone with another woman. (That is not to protect her from you, but to protect you from false accusation.)

It really is that simple.

Stay pure my friends … it is more than worth it … 1 billion times more than worth it. The reward is simply out of this world! ❤️💕🔥

Our tree 🌲 & my Angel 😇

Our CHRISTmas 🎄 tree went up just a bit early this year because the kids were home for Thanksgiving.

Valerie changes it up just a little bit every year, but it suddenly occurred to me today that it really represents her so well.

My Angel Valerie Holmes

and our CHRISTmas 🎄 tree both …

* are traditional yet modern

* light up the room with soft glow

* are classy yet family

* are spectacular yet not ostentatious

* are beautiful yet modest

* speak of hope & joy

* provide a warm feeling & produce smiles

* always make me respond with wow 😮

* point people to eternal values and eternity

* make CHRISTmas tangible

I like my tree 🌲 but I’’m crazy 💕😍 about my CHRISTmas Angel 😇❤️

Truth

Godly Conviction

My Angel is always writing, always jotting down great thoughts, she is such a student & prophetic teacher of the Word. This is what I discovered yesterday in her notes.

“Without the conviction of the Holy Spirit …

… we will have a strong ability to make excuses for our sin.

… we will comfortably view the Holy Spirit as our friend and buddy, only meant to make life easier for us.

… we will have a tendency to feel sorry for ourselves.

… we will have strong opinions about the sin of others, and less of our own.

… we will have a lack of wisdom in making decisions.

… we will confidently move in our own wisdom believing it to be right.”

Pastor Valerie Holmes

Wow!

Oh, Lord, make me sensitive to the voice of your Holy Spirit …always leading, directing & guiding me to be more like Christ.

Monday

Monday Motivational Moment

Expecting peace, prosperity, protection, & blessing, while ignoring God, mocking Him & pushing Him to the margins of your life?

That’s not how it works, that’s not how any of this works!

God is not looking for perfection, that is only found in Christ… what He does expect from us is worship, praise, adoration, Thanksgiving & obedience.

Festive Feats of Frolicking In –

FAITH in God …trust in His goodness, gratitude for His mercies and blessings… this is what today should truly be centered on.

Take some time, around the turkey-laden table, or before the meal or later this evening, to gather the family in prayer and worship to say “Thank you God, for your blessings. Thank You Father for the Lord Jesus, our Savior and Lord. Thank You for salvation and a home in Heaven, thank You for Your guidance and blessing and provision on this journey called life as we prepare for Eternity.”

This will make a true Thanksgiving in your home.

I am grateful for you, and I pray God‘s blessings on you and your family today.

Thank you all ❤️

Thanksgiving Countdown Continues…

Today I am so grateful for all those who have invested in me spiritually through my 55 years.

Far too many to name, but I will list a few.

My parents were the most influential,

my preaching, praying, passionate Pentecostal Pastor/ Evangelist Dad & Mom Rose Marie Holmes (Mom is still pastoring) ❤️ followed by my grandparents.

But I also must remember Sunday school teachers, youth workers, evangelists and Campmeeting speakers who powerfully impacted my spiritual development.

I’m especially grateful for missionaries, their passionate appeal for the souls of the world, shaped my heart, still beating for global evangelism.

Anyone remember the Philippino Singers, with a Missionary Shields? ( if I recall his name correctly) Their song still moves me…

🎵”To the east, to the west, to north & the south, you must go, I must go, with the gospel of Christ.” 🎵

Bible College professors, (then & now) and Presidents, Dr. Leonard Heroo, and now, Dr David Arnett of Northpoint Bible College Graduate School continue to shape me for anointed, supernatural last-days ministry. Dr Arnett is a spiritual treasure in my life!

District Superintendents ( my pastors) have invested in me, and believed in me and trusted me with ministry.

In 2 Districts in Canada, and now in Illinois. ( Interestingly, I remember that in my youth, some of the most dynamic Campmeeting & Conference speakers I heard were from Illinois such as Richard Dortch, who became a lifelong friend, encourager and mentor.

I’m grateful for Larry Griswold and Gary J. Blanchard who met this Canadian television preacher in a Drury Inn in Marion, IL 10 years ago and welcomed me into the Illinois District Council of the Assemblies of God

Our current District Pastor Phil Schneider

is a trusted friend & confidant, a man of strong convictions & deep commitment to the foundations we have in the Word of God. His leadership continues to sharpen my calling.

My wife Valerie Holmes, co-Lead Pastor with me, is my closest spiritual encouragement… your commitment to the calling of God in our lives, your sacrifice, prayer life, love for the Word of God inspire so many, but no one more than me … I live with you and see your passion for God‘s glory and it continues to motivate me. It is a joy to minister alongside of you wherever we are & right here at REVIVE.

I’m a blessed man and so grateful at Thanksgiving & every day of the year!

To God be all the Glory, and thanks to all my friends… we stand on the shoulders of giants. 💕🙏🔥
