Dear Saints of God:

Welcome to Psalms 91 Ministries of Texas and Evangelistic Center.  So many things are happening I just can’t believe it is all happening to us!

We are still seeking churches and ministries to partner with us to bring the Gospel to hundreds of thousands of lost souls around the world.  Ad4j Radio Network is ready to go

24/7 with various teachings and music.  Our hold back is 2 ministries which we need to cover the cost of the programming.  Are you one of those?

That’s right, JUST TWO MINISTRIES to partner with us for only $100 a month!  For our appreciation of your support, we will air your TOTAL SERVICE several times each week.  Some of our services are only 1 hour in length, others are around 2+ hours.  It doesn’t matter to us.  If God provides for your services to be on Ad4j Radio Network, then we’ll air what He’s given you.

We have churches overseas waiting on our videos and Possess the Land School of the Bible materials to teach future pastors.  Inmates are also waiting on the same materials.

This morning I was praying over my devotional in Mark 3:22-26Mark 3:22-26
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

22 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils. 23 And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? 24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

.  I feel so many of our churches are divided in theology, spiritually, and even in thought.  How do they expect to grow in that frame of mind?

One church has recently lost their pastor of around 20 years.  He was a kind man, wonderful pastor, visited the sick at all hours of the day and night.  BUT, it was time for him to move on.

Today, with the new pastor only here a few months, there are already 3 factions in the church.

1.  Wants to current pastor

2. Wants to old pastor

3.  Wants anyone except who they have as pastor

How can a church grow like that?

In Mark 3 it clearly states“And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.  And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.  And if

Satan rise up against himself and be divided, he cannot stand, but has an end.”

Now if this passage is true, how can a church or even a family be successful when they are divided?  They can’t.

Imagine out in the bush of Africa lions are chasing a zebra.  What is the first thing they do? They divide the herd and drive out the one they want to eat.  That’s what happens to churches when Satan gets the church divided against itself.  He can then pick off the weaker ones.

Let’s take the home.  When mom and dad are at odds with each other and one goes against the other, what happens to the children.  They do not have healthy homes themselves because they knew who would divide and allow them to conquer the family!

The children got their own way, right or wrong, and division was kept in the home.

When the children grow up, they remember the example of mom and dad.  They will do the same in their own homes.  There will never be peace until the family comes together and supports each other.

A home and a church must ‘agree to disagree’.  (I know so cliche’!)  Until they become one body in Christ, neither will grow spiritually.  Churches will not grow in numbers because visitors ‘feel’ and sense the division among the people….and leave.

The only way any of us can conquer Satan is to remain one body.  One in spirit.  One in vision and move forward.  We must support those in authority (pastors) and the head of the house (dad) in order to keep God’s order for life.

So are we as Christians ready to combine, agree to disagree, and go after the devil with all we have?  Are we ready to attack the enemy (which is not each other) to move forward?

Only through prayer, fasting and obedience to God’s Word can we move forward in this life.  Let’s get our marching boots on.  We have our written orders (the Word) now it is time to move forward and attack!

Satan will continue to destroy our families, churches, and nation if we remain divided.
