JANUARY 2-7, 2011-LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY

It is always our joy to return to Trinity Pentecostal Tabernacle and to the expectancy of a move of God during the meetings. Pastor Bill Finley and his wife Sue are dedicated to seeing God's purposes fulfilled. He taught a powerful lesson on prophecy to the adult Sunday School class.

 

As Brother Goodwin preached about the walls of Jericho there was a stirring in the camp rousing appointed men to march around those walls.

  

 

...And the walls came down! Victory for God's people was the resounding cry and could be felt all over the congregation. We appreciated the quick response of the congregation, as they came to the altars earnestly seeking the Lord.

 

 

A spirit of revival was working in many lives. One elderly sister was refilled with the Holy Ghost after not speaking in tongues for a long time. Another testified that he had been drawn closer to the Lord. New fire was stirred in many for witnessing and soul winning. Teams went out, even in frigid weather, going door to door reaching lives for the Lord. A young woman was deeply stirred and revived as God spoke to her so clearly from the Word of God. There were  heart rending testimonies of the help of the Lord ministering to needy lives.

The anointed singing of the Trinity Tabernacle Choir was a special blessing!

We were also impressed with the vision to reach out to the community through bus ministry. Bus Captains and others with a burden have worked faithfully to bring in many children, as can be seen by pictures from a Sunday morning at Children's Church.

 


They must be doing something right!

Jason Turner's son was totally occupied with reading the soulwinning book we were giving away. It is called "One Thing You Can't Do In Heaven".  Do you know what that is? You can't ever witness to a sinner in heaven. The time to do it is now and this book will challenge and excite you. You may also get one free if you write to us and request it. 

 

While we were in Louisville we had occasion to go to a Laundromat where we encountered a unique opportunity to witness. As we entered we saw many people there and felt the Lord had given us a field to harvest. We began to give out the message of salvation to each person.

Most received it well, until I came to a young woman seated and reading a book as she waited for her laundry to finish. When she saw what I offered she immediately turned away and told me she didn't want it.  Upon pressing her a little further she said, "Each of us has his own religion, and I have mine."  When I asked her what her religion was she proudly declared, "I am a pagan."

Slightly shocked but wanting to pursue this conversation I asked her what her religion believed. "We worship gods and goddesses (female gods)" she replied. I asked her where they came from and she claimed they were immortal.

"Which one is most powerful?" I inquired. She asserted they each had their own powers and attributes.

"But, " I continued, "you call them gods, yet God, by definition is unique from all others. How can they each be a god? By definition, God is the supreme or ultimate reality. They can't each be the supreme or ultimate reality.  By definition, God is the Being perfect in power, wisdom, and goodness who is worshipped as creator and ruler of the universe.  Do you have that kind of a God?" She confessed that she didn't, but that each of her goddesses helped her in different ways.

I asked her which of her goddesses has the power to take away sin. She had no answer, and said a little bit boastfully, "I am wicked! I even have a tattoo that says so!" She didn't seem worried because she believes in reincarnation, the opportunity to keep coming back to another life, to keep improving. 

As I gave her the Gospel, I prayed that the Lord would open her heart and deliver her from this devilish "religion", which is also Wicca, or witchcraft. I finally asked her if there was a time that she was not a pagan? Yes, she used to go to a Christian church. I asked if at that time she ever felt close enough to God to feel like she was saved? She had, but blurted out, "Do you know what those Christians did? When my mother died when I was seventeen, they said she went to hell.... just because she was a lesbian."  Here you can see the roots of her wandering into paganism. 

The Bible commands: Thou shalt have no other gods before Me." (Exodus 20:2-3)
Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, the life; no man cometh unto the father but by me." (John 14:6) God's Word further states, "There is no other name under heaven, given amongst men, whereby wer must be saved." (Acts 4:12)  And what joy it is to know that the blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin.

Please pray for this young woman named Haley to find Salvation through Jesus Christ.
