Snowed in this morning. Just got word that the church we often try and go to in the evening is cancelled too, for the first time ever! So was looking on line for a Word and Spirit church service…. here are my thoughts as I do that….
Difficult to find an online charismatic service today where:
a – there is not someone yelling at me through a microphone.
b – there is not some ridiculously long mini sermon going on before the offering. If it needs that then surely what comes in, money wise, is not really worth anything in the Kingdom of God sense of worth.
c – there is a congregation entering into whatever it is the worship team are apparently enjoying among themselves.
d – the congregation looks at all attentive to the preaching of the Word of God.
Wait a minute. All is not lost. Found Dr. R.T. Kendall about to preach. You can find him on kt.org right now, if you happen to be snowed in. If you miss it it will appear on their site in a few days.
Edited this to add a few comments just to say it was a brilliant sermon on the Sovereignty of God : God will have mercy upon whom He will have mercy: He did not heal one single leper among his covenant people in Naaman’s day even though He is the Lord our healer, but He did heal one man from Syria: Jesus reminded people of that and it is the first recorded instance where people wanted to kill Him…. well, let’s put that in our charismatic theories pipe and smoke it… will be difficult for some of us, I think…..
If only some international preachers who commend R.T.’s books would imbibe such teaching and share it in the platforms God has given them to reach vast numbers of people in many nations, so many people in the charismatic world would be saved from the disillusionment current popular preachers can at times bring upon the waiting and the weary and instead be helped to live in true faith believing for real signs of the Kingdom.
