2023 Ministry Theme: “TOGETHER WE STAND”
Ecclesiastes 4:9 “Two are better than one…
This past week, the Lord reminded me and even retaught me the principle of confirmation. In the OT Mosaic Law, it was required that there be two or three witnesses in order for something to be established, two or the three witnesses for something to be admissible as evidence as a witness to the truth. In kingdom life when God wants to speak to a situation in our lives, maybe something that He wants to include us in on, He will often speak and then confirm it so that we know that what we’ve heard is truly from the Lord. This requires a spirit connected to the Holy Spirit with ears to hear what He is saying. The Lord knows that we don’t always get it the first time. He also knows that there is a need for safeguards to be in place so that His children aren’t deceived and led astray. God confirms His will for our lives by His truth, the word of God, by His Holy Spirit who occupies the temple, and by circumstances of life. He uses people, songs, signs and wonders, and a holy whisper. He even uses your pastor sometimes. But the foundation of all that God is truly saying and where He is truly leading comes back to the word of God. In a day and time of great deception, a time when truth is clouded with confusion, let us be people of truth, always listening, always learning and always loving what God has to say. We’re glad you’re here today
