Whatever it is that is killing your hunger for the things of God, whatever it is that making you to love the world more than you love God, let it catch fire in the name of Jesus!!!

**Holy spirit baptize me with your fire**

**holy ghost overshadow my life**

**holyghost empower me**

**Holy spirit fill me afresh**

These 4 are powerful prayer points especially for people that desire the gift of speaking in tongues.

A lot is happening these days, the days are evil, one needs to be spiritually alert and hold on to God because to be carnally minded is death but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Romans 8:6.

What kind of prayers do we pray?

Do you pray for the kingdom of God to come?

Do you pray for his will to be done on earth as it is in heaven?

Do you pray for the church of Christ?

Do you intercede for others that their souls are yet to be saved?

Please let's reduce the way we engage in "gimme gimme prayer", God I want this, God give me that's, don't only pray for yourself always, pray for others too.

A lot of people go to church empty and void, they still leave the church empty and void, the word of the Lord bears no fruit in them, they have no hunger for the things of God, they are just void and empty every sunday.

Something must be wrong somewhere, its either from the preacher or from the people themselves and it really needs to be tackled.
It's because they've been occupied by the cares and problem of the world, if they can put God first and seek him more. we christians are so familiar with the word of God that we don't take it serious. we all need to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling.
Also, some of the preachers are not helping they don't preach sound doctrine of God's Word, they preach for worldly gains and some are not spiritually approved by God.

Kobojunkie:
There is no soul-winners pyramid scheme where the Kingdom of Heaven is concerned. undecided

According to the teachings of Jesus Christ, it does not matter how many souls you supposedly win at the end of the day. Jesus Christ never told His disciples that that was the work He had for them to do, No. He instructed them to witness the same teachings that He had given them to as many as will listen to them and that is all. Soul-winning as work of the kingdom, that lie was made up by men particularly as a way to win followers and fil seats in their many churches /businesses.

The work that will earn you a place in the Kingdom of Heaven is detailed in Matthew 25 vs 31 through 40. You may choose to ignore the words of Jesus Christ, continuing to follow after the doctrines of men instead, but be reminded that Jesus Christ is the way to get to God..only by obeying His instructions will anyone who claims to believe in Him(saved) earn a place in the Kingdom of Heaven. Those who believe in Him(saved too)but refuse to obey His instructions will have no part in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Hello,

Anytime i stumble upon your post, somethings come to my mind.

You may not know what you are doing but let me tell you first, Anywhere the true children of God are gathered, their is something that is imminent and that is PEACE AND UNDERSTANDING + THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Now you may know how to quote scriptures alot but i tell you, you have no idea the spirit you are made up of but i know. You operate under a wicked spirit of DISUNITY.

Everytime you open your mouth that spirit takes control. You think you are in control of the spirit but it is actually in control of you. Most of the things that believers here argue with you about, to me I'll say they are just wasting their time because your condition can only get worse.

Jesus said "I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come"

I ask you, have you ever heard anything you need to declare to us from the holy spirit? You quote scriptures without any divine interpretation. As if an attempt to chain us to doctrines without the spirit of God.

I know am wasting my time talking to you. But for the benefit of those who might be swayed away by your evil intentions. I bind every spirit of DISUNITY and confusion released from your mouth, your writings and every other means of communication available to you and i subject them to the authority that is in the name of Jesus in the name of Jesus Christ.

Thankyou so much. There was a time I told him that he is not a Christian. We need to be very discerning in the spirit.

Good morning brotherly, the bible admonishes us not to forsake the assembly of the brethren(Hebrew 10:25). Remember you are not going to church for your fellow man but for God, I strongly believe that the angels of God take attendance of people that bring out their time to go to church, if the church you currently attend is too cold or dull, kindly leave or change church, dont let your fire die in the altar of church denomination, we are all one in the body of Christ.

Desire for the gifts of the holy spirit. Every true believer of Christ can speak in tongues, desire the gift. The gift is powerful and good. Desire the gift of speaking in tongues.

There are some spiritual potentials that won't be unlocked in you till you start praying in the holyghost.

I quite agree with you bro. After I began to take God as seriously as I do now, it was hard to find a church that I could blend into. I finally started attending one but not long after that God told me to leave that church. That was about seventeen years ago.

Before God told me to leave the church, it was already glaring that the church was going to undermine my ability to become all that God intended for me to be for Him, even though it was a church. I know very well that a lot of those God is going to use for His end time revival are not in the church, because God had to separate them to prepare them for such a special purpose. This is biblical especially when those who are called the people of God as the church have derailed and declined from the original standard.

A lot of people think that church is God, hence they take church attendance seriously as though they were going to God. Yet they live lives that go contrary to His Way and Word to prove that church is not God. This is going to lead many to hell because going to church cannot save any man except it makes the person to repent and to do what God requires of him which is what it actually means to go to God.

It's my desire though the church would return to what it was in those days when going to church was closer to going to God, because the church more or less represented the Ways and Word of God on Earth.

God bless.

I use to tell people if a church is too cold for your spiritual level, kindly change church, same way I left Catholic church for a pentecostal church, they cannot come and be dulling my spiritman, moreover when I got my call from God, I was directed to leave the church.

Hmm... Interesting.. I thank God for your life because it's not really easy to leave such a church especially when you've been there the most part of your life. And for God to give you that instruction to leave impresses that He may use you to bring some who belong to the church out of bondage and to genuine repentance. That's one of the reasons He usually separates His chosen ones.

Yes yes, I have had dream where I directed my relatives who are strong catholic to leave the church to another church. There is something about Catholic church that doesn't sit well with me ever since I became a born again, I dont care if some people are offended by it, but I said what I said and I won't take it back, they say the church is not cold, they have charismatics group, must everybody be a member of charismatics for them to be blazing for Christ? Most people that speak in tongue in Catholic church are charimatics members.
