Larry's Musings for Monday April 27: "Fear, Fear, Fear!"

Hey Chicken Little, the sky is falling!

Chicken Little

When will it end?  The world is falling to pieces, at least according to the media.  The world's economy is tanked and now they have us all wearing surgical masks so that we won't give or get the Swine Flu!  Oh what problems those porkers create!

I recall the Swine Flu outbreak in the 1970's when the media told us all to get our flu shots!  Guess what happened??? More people died of the flu shots than did from the Swine Flu!

OK... the world is operating on fear!  Not me... I'm operating by faith.  I read where God Himself is my Sheild and my Provision!  That settles it all for me!

I guess if you want to believe the sky is falling, more power to you!  Instead I'm beliving that I am a son of the Most High God, that He is more than able to keep me safe and provided for, no matter what Chris Matthews says!

Larry's Musings for Friday April 24: "Change is Good!"

How do you like the new blog format?  Let me know what you think.  You can do so by clicking on the little "comment" button just below this post. 

I like change!  I get tired of driving on the same roads!  I like to explore and find short cuts and that often becomes the standard joke of our family!  Ask my children what they think of my short cuts and you will probably get told a story about when we got lost!  Corinne doesn't like my short cuts either, but then again, she is sooooo predictable!  I am a risk taker, maybe not a true, heavy duty risk taker, but I know that I am indeed one! 

I think God is a risk taker too!  After all He's sure taken a risk in using me!  But, then again, maybe God isn't such a risk taker as He knows everything, He knows that I will eventually turn out to be OK!

I find "change is good!"  When we make changes in our lives, especially when it comes to taking risks, we are actually extending our faith!  We all know that faith is good!

If you would have ever told me a year ago that I would now be a pastor of a church in Florida I would have most likely laughed you off the face of the earth!  Yet, here I am, pastor of the best church in the State of Florida, because we have the best people in the State of Florida!  www.nbfhernando.com

So... hence the new look on the blog.  I thought I'd give it a little Florida look!  Corinne says that I have a "little Florida look" too, especially in wearing shorts and sandals all of the time!

Kingdom blessings today!  And...please don't fear the changes in your life, especially those that the Lord is leading you in!

Larry's Musings for Thurs. April 23: "I Still Smell Revival in the Air!"

Greetings from Citrus County, Florida...

I don't know about you, but we are still sensing a very strong move of true Revival coming on down the road.  Now I'm not talking about it being years away, I'm sensing that at about any moment that the "Suddenlies of God" will come and His Fire will fall and His New Oil will completely change and transform  the Church! 

Gusher

Are you ready for this?  Are you anticipating this move of God as well?  Let me know what you think!  Feel free to write what you are sensing by hitting the "Comment" button just below this post.

I see an increase in the miracle provision of God these days, not only in fiannces, but in relationships and in physical healing!  I love it!  I love my job! 

Be blessed today!

Larry's Musings for Wed. April 22: "Do We Really Believe Jesus Heals?"

The past two nights I've been working with my friend Evangelist Roger Webb.  Roger has had tons of miracles following his ministry over the past few years.  I'm not kidding you!  In one recent meeting he had reports back on about 50% of the congregation receiving a needed healing miracle.

Roger Webb

We've been doing live broadcasting on Ustream.com and actually praying for folks live on the web cast.  The healings have been very dramatic!  We are going to be web casting again Thursday evening (April 23) at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. (go to www.rogerwebb.org and click on the Ustream link) So, I've been contacting people, telling them about the broadcast.  I've also been trying to think of everyone I know that needs a miracle and either by Facebook chat, or by Instant Message or email, letting them know about the meeting.  I'm very appalled by some of the responses I get!  Some people, some very needy people,  don't even respond to me.  Others do but tell me they are busy that night, or come up with another excuse!  One person with severe sickness in their family,  told me that they had a movie to go to Thursday night!  What's with that?????

I'm beginning to wonder if we really do believe that Jesus heals the sick?  I know the problem... people have heard things like this for years and they have developed a mentality of..."Sure Bro...I know that Jesus heals today, but it's for everyone else but me!"  Or how about this one..."Sure He heals, but I've been prayed for 100 times and I'm not healed yet!"  No faith manifested there!

I guess when we get desperate enough we might seek the Lord 100% again!  I guess that is where I am!  Somethings going on with me physically lately are in such a place that unless Jesus does the work, it just will remain untreated!  Hummm..... but then again, Jesus ALREADY did the work!  He did it 2000 years ago!  After all, "By His stripes I am (was) healed!  Hey, it don't get any better than that!

I believe that Jesus heals... how about you?

Blessings ~ Larry


Larry's Musings for Tuesday, April 21

Hello,

Yes, it's been awhile since I wrote here.  I've been very lax on keeping up with my blog.  However, I do have a good excuse... I've been swamped!  Man, we've been so busy!

OK... enough of the excuses and please allow me to just add a thought here.  God's on His throne!

People are so upset with Obama and they have a right to be!  This man should have never been elected President of the United States.  There are so many liberal government bills being passed and and about to be passed that people like me may actually be arrested in the future because I will tell everyone that homosexual relationships are wrong!  This is bad, very bad.  However, is God surprised by all of this mess?  Not not in the least bit!

However, I'm not getting on the band wagon of forwarding email alerts about all of this stuff.  I expected it to happen.  Why?  Because our new President and his cronies said that this is what they would do, yet Christians voted for him anyway!  I don't get it! 

Yet let us not be distracted from our true mission as the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ and that is to advance the Kingdom of God!  It's time for more of us to be performing signs, wonders and miracles!  It is time to heal the sick, cast out demons (Lord knows there are enough of them around!), raise the dead and tell everyone that the Kingdom of God is near them now!  You know...I've got a thought here... if we all do enough of this type of thing, then our problems with liberal politicians might come to an end.  Why... they'll get saved and baptized in the Spirit! 

What do you think?  How about you?

Kingdom blessings!

Resurrection Sunday is over, but "Resurrection Everyday" will never end!  Today I wish to remember that Christ is alive, just as much as I did yesterday!  Because He lives, I live also!  Wow!

Being alive in Christ is so important, especially these days!  No matter what battle we find ourselves in, let us never forget that Jesus is alive!  Because of His life, we live also!  Yes Lord!

Blessings~  ls


Larry's Musings for Thurs. April 9: "It's Just Jesus!"

I'm so sorry about my laxness on blog updates lately!  I've really been busy and my good intentions on keeping this blog updated seems to have gone by the way side!

However, not today!  I feel inspired to write some about my closest Friend... Jesus!  I so love Him today!  I'm so thankful for Him!  You know, I have a partial revelation of what He's really done for me!  So many church people don't seem to share this revelation!  Many within the Church are totally occupied by still trying to please the Lord so that they can get blessed somehow.  Thankfully I'm not walking on that path, neither is Corinne.  We are free!  We know, maybe more than most, that Jesus paid it all!  Happy Easter!  That's what it's all about!

Take a look at:

2 Corinthians 5:16-21 (The Message)

 16-20Because of this decision we don't evaluate people by what they have or how they look. We looked at the Messiah that way once and got it all wrong, as you know. We certainly don't look at him that way anymore. Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it! All this comes from the God who settled the relationship between us and him, and then called us to settle our relationships with each other. God put the world square with himself through the Messiah, giving the world a fresh start by offering forgiveness of sins. God has given us the task of telling everyone what he is doing. We're Christ's representatives. God uses us to persuade men and women to drop their differences and enter into God's work of making things right between them. We're speaking for Christ himself now: Become friends with God; he's already a friend with you.

 21How? you ask. In Christ. God put the wrong on him who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with God.

Violence in Binghamton, NY!

Once again terror has struck the United States.  A crazed gunman has opened fire on innocent citizens, killing many!  In reading some reports from yesterdays mass shooting, the liberal media is up to their old tricks, asking questions like, "Where did the gun come from?"  Of course they will raise the cry for more gun control as everyone who believes their dribble understand that, "Guns kill people!"  In one of the most heavily gun controlled states in America we once again see loud and clear that guns do not kill people, evil people kill people.  In Binghamton, as in the entire State of New York,  it is impossible for a law abiding citizen to legally protect themselves from someone who refuses to obey all laws! 

However there is deeper issue at stake here.  That is the role of the Church!  Corinne and I know the Church in Binghamton, NY pretty good.  We have ministered in Binghamton and neighboring Johnson City for years, and we have hundreds of friends there.  Just last Fall we were spreading the Kingdom of God in both towns, and spend an entire week ministering in a common gathering of the Greater Church of Binghamton, Saints who gathered, outside their own church walls, so that the Gospel would go forth and change the lives of their region.  God moved and again, we made many friends!

So when I heard that this tragic event happened in one of "My Towns" I got rather upset.  What do we do?  Many within the Church of Greater Binghamton may be stunned by yesterday's events!  I'd like to suggest that being stunned would be rather normal in the light of such a horrible event taking place in one's hometown.  However, I'd also like to suggest that the Church of Greater Binghamton  not waste too much time in trying to figure "things" out!  I'd like to suggest that it's time to really get serious now!  It's time to attack the enemy as hard as you can!  It's time to advance the Kingdom of God like never before!  It's time to press in, to take your ministries to the "next level," whatever that level may be!  To the Church of Greater Binghamton, I urge you to go on the attack like never before!  I really urge you to go after signs, wonders and miracles!  Begin now, to put away your nice, low key programs in reaching your community and become militant in your approach to taking your City for Christ.  Heal the sick, cast out devils, raise the dead then preach the Gospel to the poor, that's the model Jesus taught us in Luke 10.  It worked 2000 years ago, and it will work today!

To the Church of Greater Binghamton, if you don't have the baptism in the Holy Spirit yet, it's now time to get it!  Get filled to capacity, then get immersed in the fullness of the Holy Spirit.  It's time for the Gifts of the Spirit to be released in your midst like never before!  If you don't speak in tongues, it's time to begin!  The time of fighting over if speaking in tongues is for today or not has long gone by!  The Gifts are yours to use in taking your Town for Jesus!  All of the Gifts of the Spirit, not just the ones you feel comfortable with are yours to use!  So use them!

Man... is it time to advance the Kingdom of God!  Wow!  After all, "It's the Spring of the year when kings normally go to war!"  Don't be like David and stay home from the war!  Only sin awaits you there!

Hey Steve, Tammy, Barry and the Gang, you are all in our prayers!  We know that true Kingdom Revival is on the way!

Blessings!

Larry the Revivalist!
