In Dedication

In dedication to David Pawson.

His sermon on “Believers in Hell” is a must-hear.

You know a word is going to be good when a teacher humbly tells you:-

I am going to start in the bible.   Because when I am reading the bible every word is true; not so when I am preaching.

It is the subtleties, the little things, that let you know the Holy Spirit is governing and covering.

God bless the young man who is left to deal with some of these guys behind the pulpit these days.

Brothers be “I am going to get up there and say I want to say“.

If it turns out to have a bit of untruth in it, I will just say what I said is not what I said.

Well, a holy God waits you out, and you do it enough times, the genial Holy Spirit no longer lives, he leaves, and you are left there with empty words on the world’s biggest stage.

Just like that, there goes your ministry.
