From Adrian Rogers:
“Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.”
Do you know what the word filthiness is in the original Greek? It means, “ear wax.” God says if you want to hear, you’ve got to clean your ears. You can’t hear if your ears are stopped. God says sin in your life is like wax in your ear. You need to get rid of it. The reason God’s truth does not come to us is that we’ve got spiritual wax in our ears. As a result, it is absolutely crucial that when you study the Bible, you make a full confession of sin and ask God to search your heart and see if there is some wickedness in you. Get your heart clean; get your heart right with God.
If you’re going to a garden, before you plant the seed, you weed the garden. That’s what it’s all about—get your heart right. After we weed the garden, then the seed will grow. After we get the wax out, then we can hear. Do you understand that? Receive the Word. Welcome the Word with a repentant heart.
- What does it look like to lay aside all filthiness?
- When has sin stopped up your ears from understanding the Word of God clearly?
Take time for intentional repentance during your time in the Word today and find a way to add this to your regular Bible reading routine.
Pastor Greg Laurie’s SoCal Harvest Crusade is returning to Anaheim, California, this year and will take place in Angel Stadium on Nov. 5-6. The theme of the event is the Jesus People Movement of the 1970s, a cultural phenomenon that Laurie lived through and which personally impacted him.
“We don’t need a political revolution. We don’t need a moral revolution. We need a JESUS REVOLUTION,” says Laurie on the website for the event. More Here
From Pastor Dewey Moede:
This week when I was finished one of my messages from God, a lovely lady came up to me and said, “I was saying while you were delivering your message that you should run for office.” I have been told that before. NO THANK YOU! GOD has me where He wants me to be. Why did she say that? The message that God had me deliver was on the love of JESUS, we are to love others as JESUS loves us, and that Jesus came to serve not to be served. JESUS is a peacemaker, He brings people together. There is no togetherness in America, we are a very divided country and it is getting worse. There is no peacemaker in America, JESUS is the only true peacemaker. American politics has gone to hell. When I saw Republican Steve Bannon go nuts on TV yesterday about his prison sentence, that just confirmed for me once again, that both parties stink to high heaven. Both the GOP and DEMS have a long list of nut cases and law breakers. I have said for years that America needs a strong third party. The two party system and the secular media in America do all they can to block third party candidates. It is all about money in the pockets, power and control. EGO! Edging God Out!
American needs JESUS! A we need a Biblical Worldview so badly. Tragically I hear this all the time on my travels, that American elections have come down to voting for the lesser of two evils. Whoever wins in the coming elections, America still will be at war with itself, America is cut in two and has kicked GOD out.
PS: Do you really think JESUS approves of all those nasty TV political ads. Many are very cruel. I am a free man, I do not answer to any politicians or political party, I answer to God. I am in love with my LORD!
When you follow JESUS, you have nothing to fear.

FROM CBN NEWS:
From the nation’s capital to the harvest fields in the mid-west, Christians have been crying out to God for spiritual renewal in America. Some believe the nation sits on the brink of collapse, with the only hope being a visitation of God’s power and presence.
“Revival or we die,” Dr. Michael Brown told CBN News “That’s where we have to get. You have to get to a place where you can’t live any longer without visitation. It could be personal, personal revival where you know there must be a breakthrough.”
