New Season of Life

Last night I had the bittersweet job of telling my inmates that I would not be returning on a regular basis. 

In I Thessalonians 1:5 it says “For our gospel came not unto you in Word

only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost”

In ministry, we must preach the Word of God in power of the Holy Spirit.  Many will not accept it because of the message or style of delivery.  We must stand firm and know the Holy Ghost is leading us in His Work.

This last few months has been filled with trying out at churches, some pretty awesome churches with great opportunities for a Holy Ghost filled ministry.  We have buried Beth’s mom who was an Assemblies of God minister for over 60 years, our air conditioner went out on our 1998 Nissan pick-up and we’ve been driving it in 100 degree weather to preach, then the Lord leads us to a church south of Midland, Texas.

This little church (First Assembly of God, Big Lake, Texas) has been hurt and split so many ways it would take months to share with you all the problems.  We have been there about a month now and what a mighty move of the Holy Spirit!

People have been saved, rededicated their lives to sharing the Gospel of Christ, and forgiveness so strong they have been able to even go out to eat on Sundays.  You ask “What’s the problem with going out to eat?” 

The pastor who put the church into terrible pain and agony is always there to ridicule them.  They have learned to lean on the Holy Spirit and even go and hug his neck when they totally despised what he’s done.  Praise the Lord!

Total deliverance comes through forgiveness.  Forgiveness will bring a freedom to your life like you have not experienced in years.

II Timothy 1:12-14 tell us in the Amplified Translation, “And this is why I am suffering (experiencing sensations, impressions, passion) as I do.  Still I am not ashamed, for I know (perceive, have knowledge of, and am acquainted with) Him Whom I have believed (adhered to and trusted in and relied on), and I am (positively) persuaded that He is able to guard and keep that which has been entrusted to me and which I have committed (to Him) until that day.”

Have you trusted everything to God?  I’ve said before, we’ve turned over our funeral homes to another family, we have turned our backs on the business as it goes down, because we know with out a doubt what the Lord has called us to do.

We are called to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ in power and the Holy Spirit.  We have seen those delivered from alcohol and drugs, we say a woman who was struck dumb from a stroke to begin to speak, and those saved from wrong doings against God.

Yes, we will continue this blog, we have new products coming which I know you’ll enjoy, and our teaching newsletter is starting soon.  You will want to get signed up on this site to receive it when we start.  You will not want to miss a single issue!

God bless and we praise God for all your prayers and financial support of Psalms 91 Ministries and Evangelistic Center of Texas, Inc.
