Tonight was so good! When you began to explain those scriptures from Revelation 6, my heart was saying, “Amen!” I feel like reading them again and again to let that really sink in. It feels so good when the word of God cleans out the residue of Christianity!
I felt like Barbara, there was so much hope tonight! It just makes your soul scream, “YES Lord!!”
I feel so thankful to have been given this life to hear such wonderful truths!
Thank you Pastor John!
Your message on “The State of Dead Saints” was so good tonight! For the Saints to not be happy about what God was [not] doing, even after this life is a lot to take in. “How long, O Master, holy and true.…” What a new thought! I am glad that Jesus allows me to love it. Token’s testimony about God’s laws so good! What a night!! THANKS !
Good morning John.
I was really blessed by last night’s reading about the state of dead saints. It’s so good to get rid of wrong ideas, especially ones that we were completely unaware of, but have held close for so long. The information was great…. but understanding the word of God, greater. And my favorite part about the reading, was YOU. I love watching you rejoice when God gives you something for us. I love it when you love and treasure what God sends, it is such a wonderful example to us. And last night, there were a couple of times when you were rejoicing in the spirit, that the Holy Ghost hit me, and went all the way down – again!! That feeling is a new one for me. I had never had it before a few weeks ago… but when something is real sweet to my soul, it seems like it is a “sign” to me now, that I am loving it from the depths of my heart. I love that “go deep” feeling, when the spirit hits me like that. And I sure felt it last night. Thank you for gleaning and passing on these wonderful things, the word of God. The only way a person can disagree with it is to be unreasonable. It’s there; it’s plain to see; but Jesus has to give us eyes to see it. Praise God, He does it! Thanks again for that message.
I loved Gary’s and Darren’s songs last night!!
Wow, John, I love what God showed you about the state of the dead saints. I love how it cleans out Christian garbage that we have taken in, just living in this culture. I needed that, being cleaned by the word of God to you and you giving it to us. I love what you said about believing the word of God, and how doing that leads us to understanding.
Also, what you said about King Saul tonight touched my heart. If we disobey the word of God, it affects everyone around us. And if we obey the word of God, it affects everyone around us as well, for the good. It makes me want to check and make sure I am walking in the way God wants us to!! Thank you, John!!
I loved the feelings last night.
It was so good what you taught us. I could feel it going in to my soul. Just wanted to say thank you for sharing that! What a difference it is when God shows up, then we believe it. Thank God we can believe it. I went home last night feeling 50 pounds lighter, not sure exactly why, but I sure did. I’ll take that! 🙂
Something that you said Wednesday night has really stuck out to me regarding the Bible verses that plainly state, what we only now know about the condition of God’s saints after they die. You said, “What this means is, until March13th, 2017, I didn’t believe those verses.” (I am paraphrasing here). You said that even though you have read those verses from Revelation countless times, you have often spoken and believed in contradiction to them. We all did. Whew!
It makes me feel like saying, “Seeing is not seeing; seeing is being shown by God.” There is no other kind! We are blind, even when God has given us abundant vision about other things.
You have always told us, Pastor John, that when we feel the Spirit of God on us, it isn’t something abstract that we just happen to pick up on, but those feelings are from Him, delivered to us by Him, from His breast to ours, at the time of His choosing! How much has this revelation reinforced that that is true!
Nothing is just “here”, nothing is stumbled upon, nothing is by chance or by accident, nor made real by the persistent will of man. Our will creates nothing. It is all created by Him, in His time, and delivered to us when He will. Otherwise it just doesn’t exist – in our lives, anyway. Even what is in front of us doesn’t exist for us, until it is revealed.
It is like you taught us, God is always, always, always – the “actor”, and we are never more than the reactor.
