I have finally finished transcribing the awesome Part 10 to Rob's series on "Invading the Impossible" and what an addition it is! The whole theme of the sermon is; "Let God Impress You". How freeing is the message of true grace! So far I have published:
Invading the Impossible - Part 1 - "How to Make the Promises of God Manifest in Your Life".
Invading the Impossible - Part 2
Invading the Impossible - Part 3
Invading the Impossible - Part 4 - "Dealing with Disappointment".
Invading the Impossible - Part 5 - "Refusing to Accept the Unacceptable".
Invading the Impossible - Part 6 - "Overthrowing Religious Control".
Invading the Impossible - Part 7 - "What Does Jesus' Exaltation Mean for Us?".
Invading the Impossible - Part 8 - "Overthrowing Religious Control - Part 2".
Invading the Impossible - Part 9 - "Invading By Reigning".
Invading the Impossible - Part 10 - "Let God Impress You".
I have said it before. Rob Rufus has spoken about having books inside him that will be published - I so pray that this is one of them! Secondly I have managed to upload a video of Ern Baxter speaking at New Covenant Church in Dunstable on his last visit just before he went to glory. He was speaking on the vital subject; "The Spirit and the Word". In this clip Ern highlights the dangers of living charismatic life without the Word of God. But on the other hand he makes this wonderful statement:
"The reason that I am a charismatic tonight is that for 60 years I have had the most delightful manifestations and evidences of the Holy Spirit in my life that I wouldn't trade for anything!".
There are so-called "Reformed charismatic" churches today that are investigating why the gifts of the Holy Spirit are not occuring in their meetings anymore but no one seems to know why it is vital that the gifts of the Spirit do happen in church meetings when we gather together! Surely Ern Baxter's comment (and indeed the entirety of Rob Rufus's 'Invading the Impossible' series) makes it clear! It is about God manifesting Himself! It is about encountering God! It is about knowing Him and being known by Him!
Here is the clip from You-Tube:
Finally I am just about to travel down to Bristol with Scott and visit the SGM church my family attends. It's the first time I have been back since my problems with them almost 3 years ago so quite a big step! The pastors have agreed to allow me back for this Sunday because my two younger sisters are getting baptised so it will be a day of mixed emotions I am sure. I may write something about the visit if there is something worth saying.
