A Christian has made Jesus their savior.

A Charismatic Christian has gotten into the Axts of making Him Lord.

thnd, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. 5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. Axts 1:4

And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. 9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. Axts 1:8

Luke 6:46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?


See Mark 16:15-20


Christians, we are aware that the Holy Scriptures instruct us that " if anyone among us is sick, let him call the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. " James 5:14. I have known this for 17 years, and have prayed for the sick and believed with all my heart that by faith God will hear our prayers, and will heal our mind, body and spirit. In spite of this, during times of my struggle with spiritual or physical pain, I seem to forget my witness to others regarding God' s healing power through the prayers and healing touch of those He calls to carry out His mission of healing the sick, and I depend on my own resources for healing. I experienced this... again...just two months ago, when I developed persistent ,severe, pain in my mid to upper back which at times, caused nausea. After three weeks of no relief with professional help, I became ill during a Sunday morning Church Service, and called upon an elder to pray for me. In a few minutes, I was reminded of a year long problem in our family, which had caused resentment, anger, and emotional stress, thus, taking its toll on my body, and resulting in spiritual confusion. Following prayer by my friend, and God's obedient servant, the pain was gone, in body and mind. I have been pain-free since. Praise God for His goodness, His promises, His healing and for sending us His obedient servants to carry on His work; and for the saving grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

" I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire." Matthew 3:11

It appears the vital necessity of this baptism seems to be overlooked by the modern church. That it is the birthday of the church and without it there would be no church and that Christ would have died in vain.

reasons given why some do not want to speak in tongues:

I was not brought up tha tway.

This passed way with the early church.

It is "spooky".

I might lose control.

What would someone think?

I "have" the Holy Spirit.

What is your reason? Send comment.

Th reason the devil does not want us to speaking tongues:

It is a powerfull weapon in spiritual warefare.

He does not know what is being said.

It is objective evidence of the Christ's resurrectionand ascent to Heaven. Read John Chaters 14 ans 16.

Why Jesus wants us to have it. Luke 11:9-13

"He that speaks in an unknown tongue edifies himself.

It confirms we have been born-again,

It is an act of obedience to God.

they don't do that in our church.

I might lose contro.

It is "spiiky."

Matthew 11:11Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.Matthew 11:10-12 (in Context) Matthew 11 (Whole Chapter)
Matthew 11:12

If Johh the Baptist and the Old Testaments prophets are less than the least that are in the KIngdom of God, can they still be in it?


¶ When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. Mathew 2:9-10

The wise men never visited the manger.

The "star" was not a star since a star could not pinpoint a house.

If they came from the east the star was not in the east.

The "star" did not appear in the east at the time of Juesus' birth unless it took them two years to get to the house. It is generally believed Jesus was about two years old at the time of their visit.

There is not evidence there were only three becase there were three gifts.

If we want to follow Jesus we need a ticket. And Pentecost is the ticket. And it is free for the asking. See Luke 11:9-13.

being rich can delude us into thinking we can afford to put God on the back burner or it can enable us to minister to those in need. Our decision has eternal consequences.
