Florida Ministry this Week

30 06 2021


It is my honor to officiate at the wedding of Amanda Smith and Mark Miller this Saturday in the Tampa Bay area. I have known Mark since he was a boy and it will be a joy sharing in their important day of commitment to one another. He grew up in the church I led in Clearwater which was Maranatha Chapel. We changed the name to Flowing River Church before I moved to North Carolina. Mark parents, Kevin and Roseanne, have been dear friends for forty some years. The wonderful thing about the family of Jesus is that the bond of love and fellowship keeps getting stronger over the years, even when separated by miles. There is no distance in the Holy Spirit.

It is also a great honor to speak once again at Flowing River on Sunday morning, Independence Day! He whom the Son sets free is free indeed. I invite my friends in the area to join us at 10 am before the cookout fun and fireworks. I have a word of encouragement for those who have been fighting depression with the state of our nation after the election and the virus. “More are they who are with us, than with them!”

If you only look at the natural it is logical to be discouraged. But, if you look at what Yehovah God is doing in the Spirit you will see victory, purpose, and restoration. Jesus is not done with America just yet.

And when the servant of the man of God arose early and went out, there was an army, surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, and said, “Yehovah, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then Yehovah opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. So when the Syrians came down to him, Elisha prayed to the Yehovah, and said, “Strike this people, I pray, with blindness.” And He struck them with blindness according to the word of Elisha. 2 Kings 6:15-18

Elisha then led the blind army into the hands of the King of Samaria, but required the King to allow them to go back to Syria. That was a mighty demonstration of the supernatural power of God! Whatever you may be going through, don’t look down, look up! More are they that are with us than those that are with the enemy. Hallelujah!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for seasonal rains in Israel.
