Today I read Acts chapter 2 again and the Lord pointed something out to me. It says they were ALL with one accord in one place, then they were ALL filled with the Holy Ghost. I began to wonder why they were all filled and we have visitors all the time leaving empty. The key word is ALL. I have to conclude that when this happens, someone wasn't with one accord. Apparently we weren't all in one accord. It takes every single person to have ALL. Just imagine what would happen if we have an upper room service. Imagine if every single person in service was desperate to see every empty person filled with Holy Ghost. If there wasn't one person not praying and worshipping and believing God for a Holy Ghost outpouring. I know we can't force unity on anyone, all we can do is decide for ourselves. I know I never want to be the one who hinders the out pouring of the Holy Ghost. I don't ever want to be the one sitting back watching. Saying, oh let the elders pray over them. Saying I just don't feel like it tonight. Saying that visitor just wasn't ready to receive the Holy Ghost. What if I'm the only one not in unity? What about you? Im ready to turn our city upside down. Im ready for upper room services. I know Jesus is ready. He always shows up.

Be sure as you all celebrate this labor day weekend to say a prayer for all the expecting mothers that they would have a quick and easy labor and be sure to remember all mothers of past and the labor they had to bear to bring us into this world. Happy Labor day!

Sin is a lot like a credit card. It is an easy way for instant gratification. We can easily use it or do it because there's usually no immediate negative affects. But in time, when the payment comes due, when it comes time to pay the debt, we begin to say woe is me. Why did I buy that? Why did I do that? We begin to realize the price or the consequences are not worth it. Sometimes it's more than we can afford. Millions of americans are in so much debt that it is destroying their life. It controls them. It ruins there life. They become slaves to it. Sin works the same way. Not every drug addict or alcoholic became that way overnight. It was a matter of one sin after another until eventually they got in over their head and couldn't pay the debt. The wages of sin is death. But the great thing is we have someone willing to pay the debt for us. Matter of fact, He's already paid it. All we have to do is co-sign. Acknowledge that He has paid the debt for us and accept Him for it. I know I can't afford to sin. None of us can afford to sin because none of us have the ability to pay for it. Its better if we sin not, but if we do sin, we have an advocate with the father and His name is Jesus. Praise the Lord.
I just want everyone to know that last years New Life Tabernacle fantasy football champion, Brother Keith (Jeremy) that I'm the one that taught him everything he know's, but I didn't teach him everything I know. I will take it to the house this year. So beware.
