    The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn't dwell in temples made with hands, neither is he served by men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things. Acts 17:24 WEBWhen I was growing up, we us...

    RHM Devotional: Heroes and Monsters from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the potential of being a Hero, or a Monster, that exists inside each one of us. We get to choose. Once when Jesus was preaching from a boat, He told a parable about a man that sowed wheat in H...

    He said to them, 'Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation.' Mark 16:15 WEBJesus spoke these words to the eleven Apostles before He ascended to heaven. There is so much that could be said about this, but today we cover 'The Gospel.' The word Gospel means 'glad tidings, good...

Not on My Watch

  • Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. John 14:13'14 ESV

    It was a cold, dreary morning at work. I was miserable, cold, and hungry from fasting, and was an outsider in the middle of this crowd. As we all toiled at our machines, death metal blared over huge speakers. People cursed, did drugs openly, and bragged about the affairs they had the night before. Everyone seemed angry. The manager came to work hung over. It was a dark, damp, hole in the wall'and it was right where God had placed me.

    This morning was different though. I had been fasting and praying for the last week, and I had had enough of this depressing environment. Something in me snapped and I heard myself say out loud: 'I claim this place in the name of Jesus Christ and declare it Holy ground.'

    I was surprised myself and wondered where that came from. In less than an hour the guy with the death metal packed up his radio and quit. Soon after this, they fired the manager and made me manager in his place. Everyone that stayed there gave their heart to Jesus, attended church together, and prayed for each other. When I went to church, I filled my entire row with visitors. The Bible played over the intercom all day and scriptures were taped everywhere. It was now a Christian environment.

    I cannot really explain this, but I lived it. If you do this, your purpose has to be to forward the kingdom of God and save souls, and not to blab it and grab it to squander it on yourself. There is a time to take a stand and say: 'That's not happening. Not on my watch!'.

    Prayer: Father, guide me and teach me when to make a stand. Cause me to carry your fire and anointing into the places that I go. Lord, when they meet me, may they meet You, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: Good morning, happy Sunday! We pray you have a joyous and restful sabbath day! A couple of our areas in our online church that would be great to visit today are the Testimonies forum (click on Forums on the site menu and then Testimonies on the list) and the Prayer network, where you can send in private prayers to us and our team. If you are called to do so, you can also apply to be a Prayer Partner there. ALSO, for those who have not yet seen the monthly newsletter, just click on the "News" link on the site menu! God bless :)!

Norman Glaze Sr
Norman Glaze Sr Man. I really Love you! Even at the distances between us, Iron truly does Sharpen Iron(Admittedly you do most of the sharpening Pastor, lol). I have been in these circumstances before. My thinking was to take the radio, and bash it on the floor. Then to stomp it over and over while the horrified onlookers stand there slack jawed as they must surely think that I'd lost my mind. Yes...I know this probably would not help to win any Souls. I'm reminded of the Message a couple of days ago, about going around the mountain, lol. Love and Prayers
