God showed me that the walls around Jerusalem is like the elders! The walls are there for the protection of the citizens of Jerusalem. They are males, and they also repair the walls that were broken down. If you were to talk to an elder, you have to go the gate. There were all the elders, in the gates. Deut. 21:19. Nehemiah wept and mourned because the walls were broken down and burned with fire. Are we sorry that we have not duly appointed elders to our churches. Do we weep and fast for God to move. And elders to be appointed!
Hey JeffI have been looking for the video you used in your duck call sermon. Your intro video. I can't seem to find it on youtube or google. Can find article but not video. Thanks FRED
GREAT message. Good content. Great illustrations. Fantastic opener.
Marilyn, you have illustrated my point. The sermon had little to do with whether or not the "Gifts of the Spirit" exist today. Though I DID say I did not believe they did, that wasn't the focus of my comments. My point was, there are people who MUST have these gifts to prove their spirituality. And yet, in Corinth, the people who had the most gifts were chided by Paul for not being spiritual.
I would never be disrespectful to any man or woman of God. However, I have to disagree with your statement that The Holy Spirit does not move through the Church today as He did in the early Church. I have experienced to much to not believe. I've been healed, seen others healed, seen demons cast out. The Gifts of The Spirit are still active in the true Church today. And, according to the Bible they will be until that which is perfect returns. God bless you with a revelation on this matter.
I find more and more the church and it's pastors are facing the challenge to minister to people with mental health problems. This message helped verify the need for all of us to stand up and stand out in our ministries when it comes to touching the lives of these who need us so much. Thanks for the good words.
