What to do when God places His Treasure... In Earthen Vessels??
In recent years, there's been much said, preached about, and
written in books about the personal lives and ministries of
"The Mighty Men of God...In Our Generation!"
Especially, the powerful healing ministries..of Katheran Kulhman,
Amie Mc Pherson,William Branham, A.A.Allen,Jack Coe,Morris Cerrullo,R.W. Shambach,Benny Hinn,Leroy Jenkins,
Don Stewart and others!
I personally have been approched by 3 publishers, asking me to
\write about my 60years of "walking by the side ... of many of
Gods Giants of Faith, yet God has never released me to do so
as of yet!
I have hesitated to open up the past, as, often what is really
wanted, is to expose the humanity side of God's men...and not the Divine Calling and Anointing of God!
While it's wonderful to read about the powerful accounts of these people of God and how the effected their world.. we need to leave
there personal lives and their personal relationship with God...
to the Lord! Let me explain.
You see, some people like to play God.. and expose other ministers faults and failures.. just to exalt themselves, by putting down
someone else! Pentecostisim especially, has been bound with this problem for years and driven many away from god!
God is a God of Love and Restoration..even to fallen ministers!
Say Amen Bro. Swaggart! (by the way, God is using him around the
world to win multitueds to Christ! Pray for his ministry!)
There's two problems with that attitude! One is the question;
" Who made us God?" secondly; " As we deal forth judgement to
others.. so shall we drink from that same cup!
" Trust me! It's a bitter cup! I've been guilty, in years past
and I've had to ask forgiveness. We allllll... need God! Amen?
Let me stop here an say, that "Whatever is committed to God..
and is under the blood of Christ, is a Holy Thing! The Devil...
You Nor I ... have a right to touch it or bring it out from
under the precous blood coveing of Jesus!
If God has forgiven sin..He also has forgotten the sin and we
must forgive and forget also!
Flesh is Flesh! Spirit is Spirit! All flesh stinks(yours or mine)
.. and we must learn to know, respect and revere one another, ..
by God's Spirit! Especially in the ministy!
Yes all preachers are human and have to deal with the flesh
and the spirit, just like you do. We all make mistakes! I've
made many.. but by the grace and mercy of God Almighty, I've
been forgiven and learned from the experience and moved forward
to be a greater man of God then before!
I did agree to a 2 hr. interview with Don Stewarts co-editor, concerning a few of my accounts with the late Rev. A. A. Allen.
I appreciate the credit given to myself and my late friend,
Rev. Seven Bloomburg, in the front ot Don's book "Only Believe."
While the book is wonderful and full of history of the healing movement, if I may ... I would like to address an important
issue that it brings up to the body of Christ.
Bro. Stewart and I have had a great relationship in the ministy,
in many crusades, spanning about 40 years! He's a special man of
God, who has both carried a heavy cross.. of inheriting another
mans foundation... and the responsibilities of producing fruit
in many International Missionary Crusades!
It's been my priviledge to know and work with Evangelist Don
Stewart since the late 1950's, when he was first healed of a
crippled leg... in the A. A. Allen Miracle Healing Crusade,
in Phoenix, Az.
We were both blessed to work and travel with Rev. Allen.(Don..
in later years, as his assoc. evangelist, then as VP. and later
Pres. of Miracle Revivals Inc., after Bro. Allens
