I am blessed that Perry Stone flew to my state to speak at my church three days in a row: Friday night through Sunday evening (Jan. 25-27). During that time, he gave six sermons–each one on a different topic. I heard four out of the six.
Although it snowed Friday night, many Christians braved the weather to hear Perry Stone preach. Every service was packed. The worship preceding each sermon was dynamic. (Worship is essential. According to Psalm 22: 3, God is enthroned on the praises of His people. Praising God in a group setting creates an atmosphere conducive to preaching, teaching, healing, and miracles.)
I will only highlight a few points that Perry Stone made in a few of his sermons. His sermons were taped, so I’m sure they will be available on video to the public soon. He said that the Bible can be summarized by reading the meaning of the names of the first 10 men listed in Genesis prior to the Flood–beginning with Adam and ending with Methuselah.
Stone pointed out that prophets are superior to kings. The Holy Spirit showed him examples of kings who consulted prophets. (True prophets of God speak the truth–even when it’s bad news.) Moses told the Pharaoh what was going to happen if he didn’t let the sons of Israel go. Nebuchadnezzar consulted Daniel about his dreams, including the one in Daniel 4. Belshazzar consulted Daniel about “the hand writing on the wall.”
Question:: Who is the first leader in history to redefine marriage? Sure, homosexuality has been around since fall of man, but many churches are condoning it, and prophets hesitate to speak out.
Wake up church!.
