Sometimes after a sermon or speech-- there is not anything more that can be said to make the point. I am considered a good speaker and teacher with a high verbal aptitude-- 'gift to gab', I guess, by all who know me. Yet, there are times when I get tongue tied or lose my edge/ concentration. First off, you need to know your material and study up on it, and then concentrate and practice until you are 'polished.' It certainly helps to ask the Holy Spirit for help, wisdom and strength.
Folks, when I read stuff like the link I posted below-- I get energized and charged up like a battery. Especially when the material is so deeply rooted with Scripture and logic! So we Bible loving Christians have both human logic and the Bible Truth, and the true track record of pure History to back us up. What do the lying politicians have besides legislation that they signed into law without even reading it first ?? The present US Gov't -- Administration and Congress [and the Federal Reserve] has so many secrets hidden from the people-- and when the currency/ cash $$$$/ money [the American Dollar] bubble bursts/ melts down, what will happen then?? Big Time Chaos.
It's kind of like the water table/ aquifer in the Kansas, Oklahoma, Arizona, etc., area --steadily going down-- but it seems like many people there use the water like there is no tomorrow. I may be wrong... but the city of Atlanta, GA., is hard pressed for water too!
I think that real, Bible teaching churches ought to begin to hunker down NOW too! They must trust in the Lord....Proverbs 3:5, but also plan, save, stop spending [except for soul winning and the preaching work], and get organized to help members in case of emergencies. It would also be nice if they were alert for seniors/ the old and infirm ones too, and I intend to find out if there is any way that I can help and get involved. But that is my personal opinion. Individuals spend foolishly and so do CHURCHES, IMHO!
Are we living in the "Signs of the Times ?" I would have to say, "YES !" The trouble is, that we have all been 'desensitized' and our senses deadened by the 'News Media' and all the demon inspired distractions in the rat race of our daily existence. We are being 'controlled' too by 'Puppet Masters' behind the curtain -- leaning toward the ONE WORLD GOV'T-- and the coming Anti-Christ. Sometimes we just can't see the forest from the trees-- and have to step out of the jungle to get our true bearings, dear friends. The Bible ought to be our compass, and also our anchor. The Bible is also referred to a 'two-edged sword', in the book of Hebrews. Get to know and love it now-- today!
December 4th is my dear wife's birthday, and I plan to take her out to a fancy German restaurant in Kenosha, WI, some time soon-- down by Lake Michigan. Two days latter I will have surgery.
My good son, Andy came over for a while this evening to do a few chores for me and visit. I always enjoy his friendship and company, and Deuce, the Rotty, just LOVES him too! Thank you, dear son, Andrew T. Schuckman. God bless you.
Posted: 28 Nov 2010 10:52 AM PSTBy Greg Laurie Harvest Ministries Awhile back, I was in a restaurant in Arkansas. As my friends and I talked with the server and invited him to the event where I would be speaking that night, he asked me, "Do you think we are living in the last days? Do you think that Jesus Christ will come back in my lifetime?"With all that is happening in our world today, a lot of people are asking that
