A sudden, 180 degree turn from wickedness. My own turn from sin was likewise, 180 degrees and it happened in about 30 seconds. It was permanent, and I have never looked back, nor have I “slipped up” and resumed my former wicked life, not even for one single hour for nearly 30 years.
Apparently my son had a similar conversion. Not the same circumstance, but apparently the Holy Spirit simply changed him and it is time for Lukas to begin the race. He is so in tune that I am considering putting him on here with his own podcasts and posts if he wants to do it.
Some of you know how much I suffered over my sons conduct, and now I am in awe of Yahuah’s work. It is beautiful and just as I hoped it would be. If you have similar issues with people, pray. Never stop praying. Knock and knock and knock and knock and never stop. You will be rewarded and never settle for a half-answered prayer. Keep the pressure on Him 🙂 He loves endurance in His people.
Elders, Who Runs Good Churches?
Have a Pastor in your church? Do his elders give him good feedback and help him direct the church, or does your pastor think that he has the final say in church matters? Does he have all of the tithes in his own private checking account? Is the lease for the church building in his name only?
If he refuses to rectify matters deemed essential with the elders, the elders must leave the church (or resign and meekly acquiesce to wrongdoing) and all wise members of the congregation must leave with them. There is no other path. Repent and rectify, or rip the church in half. Google the word “cult” and consider the results.
I also find it spiritually important and a sign from Yahuah that my son was turned at the desire of Yahuah on the very Sabbath that my fine Elders acted on behalf of the Truth and wisely and necessarily resigned from the church. Brave men, all. My son’s first Torah Sabbath was in a rented Pentecostal church on the side of a country highway, with the most delightfully packed house I have ever seen in a church gathering. A gathering free from the cloud of rebellion and brimming with the voices of a vigorous and holy people. Standing room only and the foyer had many people in it, including eventually Lukas and myself.
A beautiful glorious day where sunshine, love and laughter filled the air continually.
