Too many persons now they are trying to change others when they firstly do need to be changed.. The Christian people who do not speak in tongues included
From the first century to the present, effective Christians have been changing the world dramatically! From Apostle Paul to Martin Luther, Elizabeth Fry to Corrie ten Boom, so I have to say I am realy amazed how many non Pentecostal spiritually shallow persons there are even here, their petty posts on the net now do not have much great depth or too much valid spiritual content.. it must reflect their daily lives now too.. and clearly indicates they realy have not been Baptized yet by the Lord Jesus Christ and his Holy Spirit http://www.apocalipsis.org/biography.htm
“Why God Used D. L. Moody,” and I can think of no subject upon which I would rather speak. For I shall not seek to glorify Mr. Moody, but the God who by His grace, His entirely unmerited favor, used him so mightily, and the Christ who saved him by His atoning death and resurrection life, and the Holy Spirit who lived in him and wrought through him and who alone made him the mighty power that he was to this world. Furthermore: I hope to make it clear that the God who used D. L. Moody in his day is just as ready to use you and me, in this day, if we, on our part, do what D. L. Moody did, which was what made it possible for God to so abundantly use him.
R. A. TORREY 1856-1928. In 1889 Moody asked Torrey to head up Moody Bible Institute. From 1894-1906 he pastored Chicago’s Moody Memorial church. From 1902-06 he did mass evangelism with Charles Alexander in Australia, New Zealand, India, China, Japan, Germany, Britain and Canada. In one tour of England he saw over 70,000 people saved http://comeholyspirit.wordpress.com/2010/09/28/why-god-used-d-l-moody-by-r-a-torrey/
Now a true Christian Ministry starts solely as a Faith Ministry, trusting in God to supply all of the needs , and not rather being weak in the faith, by starting a tax exempt and a marketing commercial Corporation, even selling Books, tapes, video and things, also now openly begging, begging, begging OTHERS FOR MONEY..
The proper Christian Example- “No More Rich Seat/Poor Seat . George became the pastor of a small church in England. The church wanted to pay him a good salary from the money it received renting pews to rich church members who sat at the front of the church. (Poor members had to sit in the “cheap” seats in the back.) George told them that this had to stop if they wanted him to be their pastor. Even so, he did not allow the church to pay him a salary. He trusted God to meet his needs, and God did. George and his family never missed a meal and were always able to pay their rent. George began to sense, however, that God had something else for him to do. Praying Food into the Home. Each day as George walked the streets, he saw children everywhere who had no mom or dad. They lived on the streets or in state-run poorhouses, where they were treated badly. George felt God calling him to open an orphanage to take care of the children. George prayed, asking God to provide a building, people to oversee it, furniture, and money for food and clothing. God answered his prayers. The needs of the orphanage were met each day. Sometimes a wealthy person would send a large amount of money, or a child would give a small amount received as a gift or for doing chores. Many times food, supplies or money came at the last minute, but God always provided without George telling anyone about his needs. He just prayed and waited on God.. More than 10,000 children lived in the orphanage over the years. When each child became old enough to live on his own, George would pray with him and put a Bible in his right hand and a coin in his left. He explained to the young person that if he held onto what was in his right hand, God would always make sure there was something in his left hand as well.
GEORGE MULLER 1805-98. He was born in Russia and became a British citizen. He was saved in 1825 at a home prayer meeting. He set out to train to be a missionary to the Jews, but ill health led him to Pastor Ebenezer Chapel which grew from 18 to 227 in 3 years. He believed and taught that God would supply material needs by believing prayer alone. He founded a Bible institution to spread Bible truths. He copied Franke faith orphanage in Germany for Bristol. He eventually housed, educated, and trained 2000 children in 5 houses at Bristol. At age 70 he set out with his wife on a worldwide mission lasting 17 years. He blessed many by testifying to the prayer answering God. A well known incident was how at his orphanage, he thanked God for food, with nothing on the table. Then came a knock on the door with bread coming from a bakery from a broken down cart.
