Message for March 11, 2018 from Pastor Shirley

    Paul was a full gospel preacher who proclaimed the whole will of God. His preaching was accompanied by signs, miracles and Holy Ghost power.

    Acts 20:27 “I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God.”

    Romans 15:18-19 I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me in leading the Gentiles to obey God by what I have said and done — by the power of signs and miracles, through the power of the Spirit. So from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.

    May we all be “full Gospel” Christians. The word gospel means “good news”. We are to preach not just some of God’s “good news but all of it.”

    There are those that believe that the baptism with the Holy Spirit speaking in tongues as the evidence of our Spirit baptism, gifts of the Spirit, healing, miracles, power over demons, the authority of the believer, mountain-moving faith, doing the mighty works Jesus did has all passed away. I have not read anywhere in Scripture where God intended for this things to have been only for the early church.

    We read in Mark chapter 16 where Jesus appeared to the eleven before He was taken up into Heaven. He gave them a commission to do and as born again believers we have that same assignment. Verse 15, 17 and 18 “He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.”

       The world we are called to is the one we go out in everyday to whosoever is placed in our path to minister to.  Ministering the good news of the “Gospel.”
