    based on 204 ratings
     | 33,738 views

    The vagabond anointing is responsible for the lack of direction and aimlessness in so many lives. The devil himself is a vagabond and he likes to distribute that anointing.

    In Genesis 4:12, we see the first example of a vagabond person. It says, "When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shall thou be in the earth." Deuteronomy 21:18 - 21 says, "If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will ...read more

    This is the second in an Advent Series. This message deals with those who neglected to notice Mary & Joseph in the inn. Thoughts for the direction of this sermon were greatly influenced by a John MacArthur message "The People Who Missed Christmas".

    Making Room…Luke 2:1-7 Intro: (Read Text) He gets a pretty bum rap for someone we actually don’t even know exists. The Bible doesn’t mention him (or if he existed).
