Pastor Jim Cymbala


Hearing one of Brother Jacob Prasch videoes on Youtube, I heard him very thinly speak about a friendship between Pastors Jimmy Swaggart and David Wilkerson.

Who is Jim Cymbala?

Well, Pastor Cymbala pastors the Brooklyn Tabernacle Church.

I am a lot more familiar with the Church’s Gospel music.  Here is a link.

The Dangers of Pride in Ministry

Started off with great worship at the Brooklyn Tabernacle.

We were supposed to take communion, did not do so.

I, Jim Cymbala, was supposed to preach.  Did not preach.

Two Singers came from Nashville, Tennessee. No one sang.

Did not bother to take offering; knowing that God was moving so great, and that it will be a sin to suspend worship for any reason.

God did some heavy duty business with all of us.

Left Church and people were still there praying and worshiping.

Came home and went to take Shower.

Carol stayed behind and turned on the TV to watch the world’s greatest evangelist at the time.

This was about 20 years ago.
