The aftermath of the fiasco by the North Texas District of the Assemblies of God left numerous people stunned, grasping for reasons why. The full brunt of those leaders’ actions has arrived. Why did they commit an egregious sin against God, and breach the trust of members in the denomination?
Christ said, “Feed my sheep.” They concluded that they were not capable, nor was anyone else in their denomination capable, of feeding the Lord’s sheep. Thus, they went outside of their denomination for help. It was as if they knocked on Satan’s door and asked to borrow a couple of demons to speak to and lay hands on the minister’s under their charge. Continue reading

We’re all aware that people will do about anything today to get attention. It is sign language that shouts from the soul, “Look at me!” It is not a novel obsession in the human race. Individuals that do not have an amazing talent or attractive features will employ stunts, outlandish behavior, and even bizarre disfigurement, to get noticed. Individuals with a deeply negative past seem to be the most focused on being acknowledged and accepted.
On the surface, it appears that the famous ones are happy and fulfilled. They are accepted by millions of people, even presidents, the Queen of England, the Pope, and other approving luminaries. Understandably, to someone feeling rejected and worthless, popularity appears to make one feel amazing inside. Attention equates with acceptance and acceptance is believed to solve all of one’s problems.
The glitch is that many popular people discover it takes increasing more attention, and other means, to continue feeling special.

It is tragic when a man is intelligent and articulate enough to preach a good sermon, but not anointed enough to inspire a positive change in anyone’s life. I’ve known men like that all my Christian life. They build churches, draw great crowds, but avoid saying or doing anything controversial. It is just all religiosity with no velocity.
I pray that God will send some gate shakers. I’m talking about preachers who are not deterred by the locked gates guarding people’s hearts. At this dark and evil hour, the world needs fiery prophetic voices that ignore the pastoring how-to books, the public relations manual from denomination headquarters, and just let the Holy Spirit breath through their words.
If people don’t shake up and wake up professing Christians, the world as we know it is going to fall like an mountain into a cauldron of simmering wickedness so vile the entire planet will teem with unprecedented demonic activity. It can’t wait—this business of dispensing fire-bathed truth. Don’t hold back! There will be no need to preach “return and repent” when the Bridegroom comes and door slams shut. Continue reading
