was a time in the church when the saints really worshiped the Lord in
spirit and in truth; they sang songs about the blood of Jesus (Yahshua
Messiah), about the cross of Calvary and about His name. Wow, what a
In those days when songs like
Grace, The Old Rugged Cross, Blessed Assurance, I Surrender All, and
There is Power, power, wonder working power in the blood of the lamb,
etc, etc were sang” the Preachers had very little work to do in
the pulpit as the atmosphere had already been made conducive via the
Holy Spirit, for the word of God to go forth with power and authority.
you believe it or not, in those days folks got delivered from unclean /
ungodly spirits that held them hostage and they were healed from
various forms of sickness and disease; but then again that was back in
the days when (Rev them) had nothing but the Holy Spirit to rely on.
the church is filled with educated, powerless and spiritually dead
religious leaders (Bishops, Apostles, Doctors, Pastors, Prophets, etc,)
that can’t rebuke or even drive out a USED / WOUNDED-DEMON.
as if today’s church leaders are solely interested in getting rich and
living on the hill, in exclusive areas, gated communities whiles their
congregation lives in the pauper’s life in the valley of Lodebar.
there is any sort or form of power in the church; it’s the power /
ability of manipulation to lure the naïve sheepfold into give what
little money they have to the religious leaders. This sort of power is
Here’s what Yahshua Messiah (Jesus the Christ) did for his disciples [not for his Christians], but for His disciples:
Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.

differences between that of being a Christian and being a disciple.
this stage in your spiritual walk with the Lord, your Church Leader

What’s in your church other than the religious norm?
“Bishop prayed for me, or my Mand-of God laid hands on me, and I was healed of my head ache or back pain”
(dunamis, doo'-nam-is) power of God available in the church gathering where you worship?
Are devils being cast out? Are people being cured of diseases?
enough, today’s Christians are not too concerned with the above kind of
questions, for as long as they can go to church and hear a good
emotionally charged / led message they’re quite content.
I’ve stated before, “ask 75% of today’s church-folks about The
Illuminati or The Tri-Lateral Commission and they would have absolutely
no idea what you’re talking about; but yet these are the same folks that
are jumping up and down in church / talking about taking territories
for the kingdom of God.
(A classic case of being ignorant of Satan’s devices)
Speaking of Yahshua Messiah (a.k.a. Jesus the Christ) and the power with which He operated in here’s what the scripture says:
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever”.
Holy Spirit which moved in the early church throughout the book of Acts
is also the very same Spirit that’s available to the church today.
difference is that, today’s church has given into religion and the
traditions of men rather than submitting to the leading of the Holy
Spirit; thereby making the word of God of no effect and rendering the
take my word for it, just allow the Holy Spirit to show you the
condition / status of the Religious Church today and carefully listen to
the message that’s being preached.
Despite the fact that
scripture verses are being used, many strange doctrines and ideas about
the keeping of religious days, ceremonies, foods and prosperity are
being taught by Religious Leaders.

thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which
have not profited them that have been occupied therein.
do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your spiritual strength
comes from God's special favor, not from ceremonial rules about food,
which don't help those who follow them.
Here’s a glimpse of what power in the church looks like!
upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to
break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and
continued his speech until midnight.
And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together.
there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen
into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with
sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead.
And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him.
Is God’s supernatural power available in your church?
