“For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the Cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:17-18.
Isn’t it interesting that the Apostle Paul did not have to use manipulation or coercion when preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified? Jesus Christ is alive and active as the Head of His Church and their is no manipulation needed when He is lifted up. The devil is not scared of psychology, promise keepers, harbingers, shemitahs and Daniel fasts…he is scared of the Blood of Jesus. Lift Jesus up to the people! Preach deliverance to the captives…not 40 days. God’s people remain in bondage because the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified is no longer proclaimed. Don’t twist the Word of God to fit into your doctrine but twist your doctrine to fit into the Word of God and you will find there is no coercion necessary…Jesus Christ is active in His Church! – Donna Clark Warren
