55 Reasons Why You Should Preach The Apostles Doctrine by Paul B Thomas.
Doctrine determines destiny, reveals authority and uncovers authenticity. The man that teaches sound doctrine obeys the Lords commands and knows God, Doctrine is not boring neither is it legalistic rather it is exciting dynamic and life changing because it is revelation. When a man preaches by the spirit of revelation he uncovers mysteries and reveals Jesus from the volume of the book.The apostles shook Jerusalem with their doctrine which earned them the reputation “these that have turned the world upside down are among us.” Maybe this fact alone explains why we have yet to turn our world upside down.

The Sinners Prayer... Where is that in the bible? There were multitudes saved in the book of Acts, How were they saved? If they were saved then we should follow their way, the way that lead them to salvation. This then is why we should accept salvation as in Acts. Sure, many have declared a Romans 10:9 salvation but no one was saved in Acts according to this verse. One must “believe” but there is more than just believe for devils believe and if devils believe then devils can be in heaven and have eternal life! But friend we must preach the gospel as Jesus said it where a man is born of water and spirit (John 3:5) this means baptism (water) does not come after one is saved but upon salvation.

# 1 Let a man so preach that he will tremble at entering the pulpit, for if God is to speak. the dead will rise up. If I preach and the dead do not raise up then the dead will rise themselves and condemn me.
# 2 What if what I tell you is wrong, false, heresy. Do you think I take that lightly. I came to a point in my life a few years ago, where I asked myself, “Paul why do you believe what you believe?”. I studied God’s word and discovered that what I believed was not what God told me. Man told me about “asking Jesus into your heart,” not God. God says a man must be “born of water and spirit” (John 3:5) Now I want to preach what God told me. How do you know that God said it? Look at the apostles preaching in Acts. If the apostles preached it, God spoke it.
# 3 Doctrine is scorned because man is in rebellion against the sovereignty of God. Truth must shape us, mold us and re-arrange us. I don’t mold truth to fit my theological understanding. I must allow the truth to give me fresh understanding even when the truth tells me I’m wrong!
I follow doctrine not because I am right, but because the doctrine I follow has put me right. I follow doctrine because what I know of Jesus has changed me and the more I discover of him the more I myself am changed
# 4 I cant preach without the Holy Ghost. I have friends who tell me that the Holy Ghost never leaves. I agree, but there is the manifested presence where whats in you becomes up and on you. Jesus said “You shall receive power after the Holy Ghost has come upon you” I don’t want to preach until its “up and on me!” That’s when you get power, power to heal the sick, power to cast our devils, power to preach. Without the power upon me I’m just a good talker and who wants to listen to a good talker?
# 5 Set your pulpit on fire with prayer. A prayerless preacher makes a powerless pulpiter. You cant pray until the Holy Ghost comes upon you, sure you can pray in the flesh. That’s why you fall asleep when you pray, nothing stirs you.
# 6 A possessed person can speak in tongues, they learn it from another who has said t say this now say that, the fire they get is from another and so is the ones. I want the fire from God, hes the one that teaches me to talk and gives me the unction, not man.
# 7 We will cry to the Lord until he reveals his face. Conviction does not make us parade ourselves rather it humbles the soul to the place where his tears soak into the dust, and he pleads with God for deliverance. that’s revival.
# 8 William J Seymour would preach with a bucket over his head, so that he would not get the glory. Today’s preach wants a standing ovation today. How do I know? see how many times he tells you to say amen, give a clap or stand to your feet. yes a standing ovation. I would rather Get God on his feet than man. How about you?
#9 Don’t beat about the bush/ Moses saw God in the bush. If your bush is not burning you ain’t preaching. stay at home in the desert until your bush catches fire then you are ready to preach to the nation God assigns you too.
#10. If you have no word from heaven the you will not have power in earth from heaven. Eloquent sermons are not from heaven. Power comes from heaven (1 Cor 2:4). “And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:”
In my travels I meet many people who have given up on love. they build a wall because of the rejection few believe they will ever love again. The walls they build are too high and the hurt that’s taken root goes down way low. You see it in their eyes. Pain and mistrust. They don’t even trust themselves to love again.
It’s sad when a woman whom God had made to love looses the the very thing that comes naturally to her. Love. When a woman loses her will to love she loses her heart. It don’t matter how hard she appears underneath that layer of mortar lies a heart.
When a good man comes along she rejects him, not because hes the wrong one but because she has rejection in her. Rejected people reject people, hurt people hurt people. They don’t see what’s good because whats wrong for their past is still at work in their mind and soul.
There are many keys that have to be used in order to open the love door again. I don’t believe its just one key solves all the problem. I do believe however that the key factor is Love, and this is why I say love. Because its the very thing that you will want to shut but I want to tell you its the very door that God wants to open again.
Look at Jesus. He loved a woman, you and I! He came from a far country to wed us, we rejected him, That rejection worked in him too. Yes, he was called a “man of sorrows,” Maybe you know what that means. Men too get sorrowful, men too cry and languish privately with their pain over a lost lover. He done all he could yet was refused, scorned and mocked. Have you been there! You’ve given all youve got and you were mocked for it!
Man of sorrows!
When those around him thought the love was dead forever, the love of this man began to work all over again!
Sister, brother, don’t let the devil tell you, that you will never love again. That’s a lie! They thought Jesus (the God who is love) was dead too, but on the morning of the third day. Yes the third day, love began to live again. For the believer, love don’t die because God cannot die, and whatever love was buried, that same love will live again.
Even if that person does not love you and will not love you, take comfort your love will not die, your ability to love will not die. Your ability to love yourself and then love others will live again. Older man, older woman just because you’re in your forties, fifties or sixties don’t mean its over, that’s a lie! Love is greater than age, love is greater than hurt. Love conquers death “and the greatest of these is love,” yes, the “greatest” of resurections is the resurrection of love.
Even the death of a relationship contains a seed of resurrection, you have that miracle resurrection love seed in you. You will love again! Maybe you have to first let go of love to get it all back. Maybe too you have to put bury the past hurt first. Maybe you have to lay done the anger first. Maybe you have to give your past a funeral service.
You cant afford to live without love. Why rob yourself of love why rob yourself of something God created you for. That dont make sense. There’s no hurt that so bad that you will have to rob yourself of its force.
Here are three things you can do again
1. MAKE THE CHOICE TO BURY THE PAST and resurrect the future. If you have a man that believes it can come back together then believe against the odds with him. Don’t quit on love love wont quit on you, give it a second chance, give it a third day. have another go.
2. TAKE OWNERSHIP OF FAILURE. Without taking responsibility to forgive one cannot take authority over pain. If you forgive from the heart God will restore. Take ownership of mistakes, admit it you had a role to play in things going wrong. Confess it then walk away from its guilt.
3. CHOOSE TO MAKE TODAY BIGGER THAN YOU PAST. If you want something to die give it no time no talk and no attention and it will die. Tomorrow is new. Don’t mention yesterday anymore, don’t bring it up with your mate don’t ponder it and don’t let yesterday live. Today is a new day. live today. Today is not yesterday repeated. Don’t live like that. It will kill the life in you. Today in New. Make it a celebration of whats new not a rehearsal of whats dead.
Love can live again.
You will love again

My Thoughts: I believe we should use the name of Jesus and why not?
Baptizing according to Mathew is in “the name of the father Son and Holy Ghost” (Mt 28:19). Mark tells us “He who believes and is baptized will be saved… and these signs (are of) those who believe in his name are inferring that baptism too is in his name (Mark 16:16-18) Luke’s account tells us that “repentance and remission of sins (which comes through baptism) should be preached in his name” (Luke 24:47). So the gospels testify to the name however one reads it.
The discussion over the name in baptism continues even in Pentecostal circles and I found it interesting to observe this to be so on the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic faith inc website. which discusses the terms used in Acts such as “Lord Jesus” (Acts 8:26) “name of the Lord” ( Acts 10:48) “Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 19:5).
My thoughts are this. Note that the term “Lord” and “God” are titles not names. We are not baptized by the titles but by the one whose name is Jesus for if the titles were appropriate to baptism and conveyed a special meaning then why not use the titles like “Emmanuel” or “Mighty God” or “all sufficient one” why not use the titles, any titles of God of which there are many in our baptism? So the titles denote him who is God, and is used in the scriptures to reveal who our God is to those who don’t know him. Paul said to “do all things in his name” and this would be the correct practical working and application of Matthew 28:19. we don’t cast out demons in the name of the father son and Holy Ghost. We don’t pray a pray of healing the in the name of the Father Son and Holy Ghost no we simply do it in his name. and why not baptism?
Jesus is the revelation of the father this is why we should baptize in the name of Jesus (John 8:24).
Back to the Matthew 28:19 debate. The Phrase of Matthew 28 was not given for us to repeat baptism into the name is something we do. Its not necessary to use the word “of” as in “I now baptize you into the name of…” rather we are to baptize into Jesus. How is this done. When the baptized one one calls on the name of Jesus. “Arise be baptized calling on the name of the Lord.” That is when salvation comes. Jesus is salvation, his name means salvation and he comes when we invoke the name. Further when we invoke his name it is he that baptizes us. This is why we are to use his name. No man can baptize us save Jesus only. You are not baptized into my church and neither am I baptized into your church. I’m baptized in Jesus church therefore Jesus is the one that baptizes me
