Church: Be There.

It is fashionable these days to dismiss the gathering of the saints as archaic.  God doesn’t’ think so.  In fact, He plans services for those who will be there.  Don’t miss what He has for you!  Be there!

Just as Christ

Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. (Romans 6:3-4 NKJV)

Thinking about baptisms tomorrow.  Paul thought there were some things we should know, the primary one being that baptism is our place of union with the Lord in His death and resurrection.  The words that grab my heart here are “just as.”   The same glory that raised Christ from the dead now empowers my life.  I have the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit in me and on me, not just on Sunday with goose-bumps, but on Monday with life-bumps. I’m pretty sure I don’t grasp all that’s included in that notion, but I am determined to push on to live as much of it as I can get my heart around.  (My head may never catch up this side of Heaven) How ’bout you?

This Thing is Real

I have been putting this off since last Fall. I really felt I was supposed to be about advocating for the supernatural power of God in the Church. Christianity is a supernatural thing. WE have been privileged to see and experience so much, yet it seems the manifestation of the Spirit is hard to find in many churches. To that end, I am repurposing this blog and kicking off a YouTube channel, both entitled “Contending for the Spirit.” I look forward to quite a ride. And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
(1 Corinthians 2:4-5 NKJV) This is Real

Building People of Substance for Works of Power

He is here, Friend!

Last week we had one of those “holy” moments in our midweek service. It was a small group, maybe 40 people, but they are a singin’ bunch. They were joining in vociferously, as usual. As we ended the worship time, we were singing a simple chorus of “Holy is the Lamb.” It seemed as if you could feel the atmosphere getting thick with the Presence of God. When I stopped the music, there was simply silence. Not a cough or a sigh or a grunt. Silence. Nobody bolted for the bathroom, not a baby cried. It continued for several minutes, I couldn’t really tell you how long, because the time seemed irrelevant. No one wanted to move, or to be the one that punched a hole in the holy thickness. Finally someone came in from the outside, and it began to lift a bit. It was about 30 minutes past the time we usually finish the musical part of worship.

I was reminded of the Lord’s statement in Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” We mostly all agree on that as a doctrinal fact, but I believe it is supposed to be much more experiential. I often wonder how we would all behave if we really believed that Jesus was personally present in our midst. His presence is a fact. He said He would be there, so He is. Would our experience of that presence increase if we thought to reverence Him as if He were bodily present? I think so. One dictionary definition of reverence is “profound, adoring, awed respect.” How about we try a little experiment. Let’s all go to church with a determination to show profound, adoring, awed respect for the Lord from the moment the service starts. It might catch on and start a movement!

Somebody Said: “It’s like a jar of salad dressing sitting on a shelf… most of the seasoning settles to the bottom of the bottle. But when you shake that bottle up, all the ingredients mix together and then the dressing can add flavor to a salad. In the same way, we can stir ourselves up and regain the reverence, respect and awe we once had for the Lord.” Joyce Meyer

Scripture Reading: God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, And to be held in reverence by all those around Him. Psalms 89:7 NKJV

Our services, the gatherings of the saints, are many things: The family reunion of the children with the Father and with one another, an opportunity to be trained for service, an opportunity to serve one another, a place for the lost to be found and the broken to be mended. Let’s remember that it is also the building of a habitation for the Presence of a holy God. Offer Him the respect He is due, and He will show up in amazing ways.

Building People of Substance for Works of Power

Let it rain, Friend.

We just finished the annual National Day of Prayer observance. I heard lots of prayers for lots of great things. Thank God for the privilege of praying. When it comes to seeking the supernatural move of God in our gatherings and in our ministries, prayer plays a vital role. Certainly, those of us in leadership need to maintain a consistent prayer life in order to be available to the Lord at all times. In my own prayers, I have used two particular passages as the basis for praying that God move in our midst. I thought you might find them helpful:

1. Acts 4:29-33 NLT And now, O Lord, hear their threats, and give us, Your servants, great boldness in preaching Your word. (30) Stretch out Your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.” (31) After this prayer, the meeting place shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. Then they preached the word of God with boldness. (32) All the believers were united in heart and mind. And they felt that what they owned was not their own, so they shared everything they had. (33) The apostles testified powerfully to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and God’s great blessing was upon them all.

a. They prayed not just for themselves, but for all the believers. Let God use anybody, not just you.

b. They prayed for boldness. God moves through people. He needs people who will yield to His promptings.

c. They prayed for miraculous signs and wonders to be done, not in the name of their church, but in the Name of the Lord.

2. James 5:7-8, 17-18 NLT Dear brothers and sisters, be patient as you wait for the Lord’s return. Consider the farmers who patiently wait for the rains in the fall and in the spring. They eagerly look for the valuable harvest to ripen. (8) You, too, must be patient. Take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near. (17) Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! (18) Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops.

a. The Lord is waiting for the harvest, the harvest is waiting for the rain of His Spirit. (Hosea 6:3)

b. Elijah prayed and it rained. He was no better than we are. We can pray and it will rain!

Somebody Said: “For thou art My people, and My people shall rule and reign. And the blessings of God will fall upon them. The latter rain shall be poured out. Yea, upon nations that are now barren and void. But the rain will be poured out. The seed will be planted. The harvest will come. The glory of God will shine upon the earth.” Prophetic Word through Kenneth E. Hagin. February 18, 2003

Scripture Reading: Ask the LORD for rain In the time of the latter rain. The LORD will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone. (Zechariah 10:1 NKJV)

Watchman Nee said, “Our prayers lay the track down on which God’s power can come. Like a mighty locomotive, his power is irresistible, but it cannot reach us without rails.” Start laying track! Let’s pray for the rain until the downpour comes! Be bold, be persistent, and expect the building to shake.

Construyendo personas de sustancia para obras de poder

Orando por el poder de Dios, Friend.

Mi odisea personal en la búsqueda del Espíritu comienza temprano en mi vida como creyente, fui salvado por cuenta propia, leyendo en mi apartamento. Algunas damas me invitaban a sus Iglesias, donde miraba cosas, un Espíritu real que nunca había experimentado, estaba aterrado, pero estaba seguro que era real, un amigo me regalo unas cintas de casetes de Kenneth E. Hagin que se llamaban “como puedes ser guiado por el Espíritu de Dios”. Después de oírlos, nunca más volví a ser el mismo. El describía algunas experiencias que eran totalmente extrañas para mí: como visiones, visitas angelicales, voces audibles… también iluminaba algunas cosas que yo ya había experimentado pero que no entendía: como revelación de la palabra, el testimonio y la unción tangible del Espíritu de Dios. Determine que este hombre era un charlatán o un lunático, o mejor, un hombre que caminaba con Dios de una manera mucho más allá de la que yo conocía. Yo quería eso.

Durante un periodo de varios años, crecí tanto en conocimiento como en experiencia en las cosas del Espíritu, fui a la escuela Bíblica y me recibí de Pasto, mi personalidad es muy conservativa, escéptica y dolorosamente tímido, esto no era normal para mí, pero sabía que era real, y que esa gente necesitaba el poder de Dios.

Como Pastor he encontrado tres elementos esenciales para fomentar el ministerio sobrenaturalmente.

1. Estúdialo. Hasta que construya la realidad del deseo de Dios de moverme sobrenaturalmente en mi propio corazón, nunca lo esperare. Me pareció especialmente desafiante verme a mí mismo como el recipiente que podría usar en dones y manifestaciones espirituales. Construye tu Fe. Gálatas 3:2-5/1 de Corintios 12:7-11

2. Ensénalo. Las personas no esperan lo que no saben, y Dios se mueve en una atmosfera de expectativa. ensena el libro de los Hechos como si estuviera sucediendo hoy. Hechos 5:12-16/ 1 de Corintios 2:1-5

3. Controlarlo. No te de pena dirigir y corregir, si permite que ocurra algo en el servicio sin comentarios, las personas van a asumir que lo apruebas. Aprende la diferencia entre lo real y lo extra- exuberante, y lo evidentemente falso. 1 de Tesalonicenses 5:19-21

Alguien dijo: “…los padres de la Iglesia primitiva proporcionan bastante evidencia de que los dones, milagros y profecías se llevaban a cabo en su propio tiempo, incluso no tan abundantemente como en el primer siglo. Los creyentes de la edad media y de la edad moderna continúan practicando estas manifestaciones del Espíritu. Es, de hecho, sensacionalismo que no está bien documentado de la historia pasada; parece no ser coincidencia que surgió solo en una cultura dominada por anti-sobrenaturalismo.” Craig S. Kenner

Escrituras Bíblicas: porque no osaría hablar sino de lo que Cristo a echo por medio de mi para la obediencia de los gentiles, con la palabra y con las obras, con potencia de señales y prodigios, en el poder del Espíritu de Dios; de manera que desde Jerusalén, y por los alrededores hasta Ilirico, todo lo he llamado del evangelio de Cristo.(Romanos 15:18-19 NVRV)

Una breve búsqueda por internet de libros Cristianos populares me dio los siguientes resultados: liderazgo Cristiano- 250, Crecimiento de la Iglesia- 400, El Espíritu Santo-48,dos eran Biblias y solamente y solamente 12 hablaban del Espíritu Santo. De estos, ni la mitad hacía mención de los milagros. ¿Cuál es mi punto? Pareciera que el Cristianismo está más preocupado por la ausencia del crecimiento, también asociado con la ausencia del Liderazgo. Yo diría que un problema más básico seria la falta de poder, también asociado con la falta de conocimiento y falta de deseo. “los tiempos pasados” hablaban de la frase, “lee lo rojo y ora por el poder”. Estaban hambrientos por el nuevo testamento igual que por el poder de los milagros. Si estas hambriento también, entonces únete a mí en mi búsqueda de un poder irrefutable, inconfundible, y sobrenatural de la Iglesia en estos tiempos. Estudia, ensena, y controla, luego observa y deja que Dios lo haga.

Construyendo personas de sustancia para obras de poder

Orando por poder, Friend.

Cuando comenzaba mi ministerio, esto me impacto bastante: el descubrir que las personas necesitan a Dios, no a mí. En la Iglesia en donde trabajaba, había un buen hombre que había sido terriblemente herido en un accidente de carro, tuvo una lesión cerebral muy grave, y daño en la medula espinal, su fiel esposa, lo llevaba a todos los servicios, le ministrábamos, orábamos por ellos, maldecíamos a satanás, y confesábamos la palabra, pero yo nunca miraba ninguna mejoría, nunca dude de la voluntad de Dios para sanarlo, pero podía mirar que las fórmulas de fe que estábamos aplicando no estaban haciendo su trabajo. Como Pastor, pronto realice que algunas personas nunca iban a recibir lo que necesitaban con su propia Fe, si va a pasar tendrá que ser por la manifestación sobrenatural del poder de Dios, y del Espíritu Santo, esta revelación me ha llevado a luchar apasionadamente por el poder sobrenatural de Dios en nuestros servicios, quiero desesperadamente ver a nuestras congragaciones recibir, ¿tú no?

A través de los años he visto predicadores orar por cantidad de peticiones, oramos porque la Iglesia crezca, por dinero, por más servidores, por nuevas instalaciones, pero creo que es tiempo de recordarnos que debemos empezar a orar como Eliseo, cuando Elia le pregunto que podían hacer por El mientras se preparaba para presentarse en la oficina del profeta, El respondió: “por favor deja caer una doble porción de tu Espíritu sobre mi”. Cuando me enfrento a las necesidades de la humanidad quebrantada, me abruma el pensar que no puedo hacer nada por ellos, no necesito otro programa, otro libro, otro seminario, u otro hashtag (etiqueta) más moderno, lo que necesito es más de su Espíritu, más de su poder, más de su fuerza, cuando el quebrantado viene al servicio, ellos necesitan que yo me quite de en medio y solo facilite el que sean tocados por Dios.

ALGUIEN DIJO: ninguna persona hace milagros, y tampoco son responsables de no hacerlos, pero si pueden orar por un milagro de Dios para que otra persona lo reciba- los milagros pasan cuando ocurren, Bruce Wilkinson

Escrituras bíblicas: creedme que yo soy en el Padre, y el en mí, de otra manera, creedme por las mismas obras. De cierto, de cierto os digo: el que en mi cree, las obras que yo hago, el las hará también, y aún mayores hará, porque yo voy al Padre. Y todo lo que pidiereis al Padre en mi nombre, lo hare, para que el Padre sea glorificado en el hijo. (Juan 14:11-13 NVT)

Me comprometo a hacer discípulos, ensenar y entrenar es muy importante para crecer en la vida del creyente, pero en el mundo en que vivimos, está lleno de personas que llevan sus vidas en muy mal estado, que seguramente no vivirán lo suficiente para crecer, seguro no tienen la estabilidad mental y emocional para pasar por nuestros programas tan rigurosos e intensos. Necesitamos el poder de Dios, queridos amigos, para liberar al cautivo: debemos sanar a los enfermos, echar fuera demonios, e incluso levantar a los muertos, todo lo que nosotros tenemos es nuestro ingenio y nuestras propias fuerzas. En vez de confiar en nuestras propias fuerza vanas, mejor oremos con pasión por su poder en cada uno de nuestros servicios y situaciones. Es todo lo que necesitamos.

Building People of Substance for Works of Power

Prayin’ for the power, Amigos.

My personal odyssey in the search for the power of the Spirit began early in my Christian life. I was saved on my own, reading in my apartment. Some ladies invited me to their church where I saw things, a reality of the Spirit I had never seen. I was terrified, but I knew it was real. One friend gave me some cassette tapes by Kenneth E. Hagin called. “How You Can be Led by the Spirit of God.” I have never been the same. He described some experiences that were totally foreign to me: visions, angelic visitations, audible voices… He also illuminated some things that I had experienced but never understood: revelation from the Word, the witness of the Spirit within, and the tangible anointing of the Spirit. I determined that this guy was either a charlatan, a lunatic, or a man who walked with God in a manner beyond anything I had known. I wanted it.

Over a period of several years, I grew in both knowledge and experience in the things of the Spirit. I want to bible school and began to pastor. My personality is very conservative, skeptical, and painfully shy. This was not natural for me, but I knew it was real, and that people needed the power of God.

As a pastor, I have found three essentials to foster supernatural ministry.

1. Study it. Until I build the reality of God’s desire to move supernaturally into my own heart, I will never expect it. I found it especially challenging to see myself as the vessel that He might use in spiritual gifts and manifestations. Build your faith. Galatians 3:2-5 / 1 Corinthians 12:7-11

2. Teach it. People don’t expect what they don’t know, and God moves in atmospheres of expectancy. Teach the Book of Acts as if it were happening today. It should be. Acts 5:12-16 / 1 Corinthians 2:1-5

3. Monitor it. Don’t be bashful about correcting and directing. If you allow something in a service to occur without comment, people will assume you approve. Learn the difference between the real, the over-exuberant, and the patently false. 1 Thessalonians 5:19-21

Somebody Said: “…the early church fathers provide abundant evidence that gifts such as prophecy and miracles continued in their own time, even if not as abundantly as in the first century. Christians in the medieval and modern periods continued to embrace these activities of the Spirit. It is, in fact, cessationism that is not well documented in earlier history; it seems no coincidence that it arose only in a culture dominated by anti-supernaturalism.” ― Craig S. Keener

Scripture Reading: For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ has not accomplished through me, in word and deed, to make the Gentiles obedient—in mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from Jerusalem and round about to Illyricum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ. (Romans 15:18-19 NKJV)

A brief search of the internet for popular Christian books gave the following results: Christian leadership – 250, church growth- over 400, The Holy Spirit – 48. Of the 48, two were bibles, and only 12 were actually about the Holy Spirit. Of those, half did not contain mention of the miraculous. My point? It seems that church world is greatly concerned about a lack of growth, maybe associated with a lack of leadership. I would contend that a more basic problem is a lack of power, maybe associated with a lack of knowledge or a lack of desire. The “old-timers” used to talk about the phrase, “Reading the red and praying for the power.” They were hungry for a New Testament kind of miracle power. If you’re hungry, too, then join me in my quest for unmistakable, irrefutable, supernatural power in the modern church. Study it, teach it, monitor it, then stand back and see what God does.

Construyendo personas de sustancia para obras de poder

Aprendiendo en quien apoyarnos, Friend.

Antes de que ingresara al ministerio, trabaje por más de una década en varias instalaciones de problemas mentales, en ese contexto recibí mucho entrenamiento y adquirí mucha experiencia en consejería para personas con problemas. Una mañana me preparaba para dar consejería a alguien, cuando el Señor me hablo y me dijo “El propósito de tus consejos a estas personas, es mantenerlas vivas, hasta que yo pueda trabajar con ellas”. Allí me di cuenta de que me había permitido confiar en mis habilidades naturales, miro a las personas con muchos síntomas, luego aplico técnicas memorizadas para abordar lo que considero es el problema. Dios quiere que cambie en su totalidad la manera en que abordó el tema al aconsejar a las personas, Él puede hacer más en milésimas de segundos de lo que yo puedo hacer en toda una vida. Mi trabajo es ayudar a las personas a ponerse en una posición de recibir de Él, todos los demás son energías perdidas.

Si queremos el poder supernatural de Dios en nuestras Iglesias, es mejor que reconozcamos que no sabemos mucho y que no podemos hacer nada sin Él. El creyente fue diseñado para vivir en lo supernatural. Se necesita todo el poder del Espíritu Santo para convencer a una persona de que es un pecador sin esperanza, y que tenemos herencia de un maestro Judío que murió hace más de 2000 años y que Él es nuestra única esperanza de salvación. Se necesita del Espíritu Santo para predicar, y para que los oyentes entiendan que es lo que les predican. Ni siquiera nosotros podemos entender su palabra si Él no nos ayuda, personas enfermas han sanado por su fe y por el poder de Dios, nunca por mi ingenio o por la fuerza de mi personalidad. He visto matrimonios restaurados cuando Dios cambia sus corazones, asuntos financieros se mejoran cuando el motivo va de la codicia a la gracia, de la codicia a la satisfacción. La felicidad se encuentra cuando hay una sumisión personal al plan y voluntad de Dios para nuestras vidas, esto solo viene cuando buscamos sinceramente a Dios y oímos su voz. Ser creyente significa vivir en el Espíritu y por el Espíritu o de lo contrario sería un club social donde hay grupos de auto-ayuda, no te puedo sugerir ningún otro plan, ningún otro consejo que dar, no puedo ofrecer ninguna otra idea alternativa, estoy indefenso para ayudar sin la ayuda de Dios.

Alguien dijo: una Iglesia en la tierra sin el Espíritu Santo, es más bien una maldición que una Bendición. Si no tienes el espíritu de Dios cristiano activo, recuerda que estas siendo de piedra de tropiezo; eres un árbol sin frutos plantado en el lugar donde un árbol con frutos debería estar creciendo. Charles Spurgeon

Escrituras Bíblicas: entonces el Ángel explico diciendo, este es el mensaje de Dios para Sorozábal: yo soy El Señor todopoderoso, así que no dependas de tu propio poder o fuerzas, pero de mi Santo Espíritu. (Zacarías 4:6 VIC)

Creo firmemente en la educación, aprende todo lo que puedas, no hay ninguna recompensa por quedarte ignorante. Nuestra tentación, sin embargo, en este mundo secular, es apoyarnos en lo que sabemos, en vez de a quien conocemos. Nunca podremos dar un mensaje de tal forma que sea apetecible a la carne, ese no es nuestro trabajo, sería muy tonto. Nosotros te presentamos a Jesús que resucitó de los muertos, luego tu escudriña tu Espíritu para confirmación, todo lo demás es palabrería. Pienso en el viejo dicho que describe a los aspirantes a vaqueros: “puro sombrero, pero sin vacas.” Asegurémonos de no convertirnos en una Iglesia de pura palabrería, pero sin el poder del Espíritu Santo.

Building People of Substance for Works of Power

Prayin’ for the power, Amigos.

It hit me very early in ministry: People need God, not me. In the church where I worked, there was a precious man who had been terribly injured in a car wreck. He had severe brain injury and spinal cord damage. His faithful wife wheeled him into every service. We taught them, prayed for them, rebuked the devil and professed the Word. I never saw any improvement. I never doubted the will of God to heal him, but I could see that the faith formulas we were applying were not getting the job done. As a Pastor, I soon realized that some people are never going to receive what they need on their own faith. If it’s going to happen it will have to be a manifestation of the supernatural power of God, a gift of the Spirit. This revelation has led me to passionately contend for supernatural power in our services. I desperately want to see people made whole. Don’t you?

Over the years I’ve heard preachers praying for all sorts of things. We pray for our church to grow. We pray for money and helpers and facilities. I believe that it is time to remember to pray like Elisha. When asked what Elijah might do for him as he prepared to stand in the prophet’s office, he responded, “Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.” When faced with the needs of broken humanity, I have to be overwhelmed at my inadequacy to do anything for them. I don’t need one more program, one more book, one more seminar, or one more really hip hashtag. I need more of His Spirit, more of His power, more of His strength. When the broken come to our service, they need me to get out of the way and facilitate the touch of God.

Somebody Said: People can’t do miracles and are not responsible to do miracles, but people can pick up miracles from God and hand it to another person – a miracle happens when that occurs. Bruce Wilkinson

Scripture Reading: Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen Me do. “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in Me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in My name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. (John 14:11-13 NLT)

I am committed to making disciples. Teaching and training is essential to growth in the Christian life. But the world we live in is filled with folks whose lives are in such a state of disrepair, they may not live long enough to grow. The may not have the mental or emotional stability to go through our rigorous programs. We need power, dear friends, to set the captives free: to heal the sick, cast out devils, and even raise the dead. If we don’t make room in our liturgy and our lives for the intervention of the Holy Ghost, all we will have is our wits and our strength. Rather than trust our own pitiful exertions, let’s pray passionately for His power in every gathering. It’s really all we need.
