The Early Anabaptists: A People Of The Spirit

Posted by on Friday, 13 July, 2012

Stuart Murray, author of the book, “The Naked Anabaptist“, discusses how the early Anabaptist movement was a Spirit-filled movement, and could even be considered an early charismatic movement.

[Being a charismatic believer myself, while also holding to the Anabaptist tradition, this research really resonates with me!]

Notes: The extent to which the early Anabaptists were a people of the Spirit; They could be in part described as an early charismatic movement; It’s certainly a movement that’s paid considerable attention to being led by the Spirit as they worshiped, as they read scripture, and in any spheres of life; Those parts of the story appear to have been airbrushed out of Mennonite history

Notes: That’s really a huge problem, is that so many people are just close-minded… they don’t have any openness… they’re just satisfied with the status quo, and if you come along and suggest that there’s a better way and a better covenant and of all that… it’s like they think you’re from the moon or something, and they don’t really want to be challenged… they’re happy with the way things are, and that’s the way it is; That’s so dangerous because usually when people are complacent and lethargic, it’s indicative of the fact that their spiritual life isn’t really being challenged, and they’re not really growing, they’re just stagnating; 1 Cor. 2:9-16… through the Spirit, He has revealed all these things to us; We are of the Spirit… we need to live by the Spirit… the truth is revealed by the Spirit; We have to come to the place where we learn from Him… we don’t just learn of Him, but we have to learn from Him; We’re living in a very important time… things have been locked up for such a time as this, so that the plans of the Lord will be fulfilled

Russ Dizdar from Preemption Broadcast discusses the authority given to us by Jesus Christ to overcome spiritual oppression and the attacks of the devil…

[Part 14 of a 15-Part series]

Show: Preemption Broadcast
Full Podcast: HOW TO GET YOURSELF AND OTHERS FREE FROM DARK SPIRITS
Host: Russ Dizdar
Notes: Jesus said of you and me… that if we’re going to be His disciple, we must deny self, take up the cross daily, and follow Him; John 12-16; The proof of our love for Jesus is if we obey Him; The proof of loving Jesus and following Jesus is putting the Word of God into action… and when you put the Word of God into action, you grow, you get stronger, you become wiser, more knowledgeable, but you also begin to bear fruit; Charismatic giftings do not negate the mission… the great mission and the reason to be clothed with the power of the Holy Spirit is for witnessing; Acts 1:8; Every Spirit-filled believer in the book of Acts was a soul-winner; Obedience is literally faith in action; Hebrews 11:6 – “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.“; You be the spark that gets the fire going in your church… you be the spark that gets the fire going in your Bible study

Freedom From Dark Spirits – Part 9

Posted by on Wednesday, 30 March, 2011

Russ Dizdar from Preemption Broadcast discusses the authority given to us by Jesus Christ to overcome spiritual oppression and the attacks of the devil…

[Part 9 of a 15-Part series]

Show: Preemption Broadcast
Full Podcast: HOW TO GET YOURSELF AND OTHERS FREE FROM DARK SPIRITS
Host: Russ Dizdar
Notes: Surrender everything to Jesus Christ–your whole life; Repent of any sins you know of; Ephesians 4; Take up the cross and follow Christ–if you don’t do that you’re not obeying God; Jesus said “If you love me, you’ll obey me”; We receive every bit of grace and mercy by faith, but we experience and manifest that presence and power and victory in obedience; Obedience is inseparable from real faith; Psalm 139:23-24 – “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”; Sin and non-obedience hinders the fullness of Jesus inside you; Either we are filled with the Spirit of God–which is the will of God–or we are grieving or even quenching (putting out) the Holy Spirit’s fire (1 Thess. 5); Romans 12; James 4

Jesus: Friend To Terrorists – Part 4

Posted by on Thursday, 27 January, 2011

Dr. Future and Tom Bionic discuss the book “Jesus: Friend to Terrorists“, by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, with Todd Nettleton, Director of Media Development for Voice of the Martyrs

[Part 4 of a 4-Part series]

Show: Future Quake
Full Podcast:
Rev. Wurmbrand’s Appeal For Christian Love For Terrorists Today
Date: 11/1/10
Hosts:
Dr. Future & Tom Bionic
Guest: Todd Nettleton
Notes: The last line that Reverand Wurmbrand gives us in his book is “start by changing yourself“; You become more peaceful, you become more loving, and pretty soon, if all of us do that, we’ll start to have a world that is more peaceful and more loving; It’s a charge that you can’t walk away from and you can’t pass it off to somebody else… it’s on you to take the truth that you have and to start making it more a part of your life; You have to first believe that the Holy Spirit has the power in each of us to make this change one-on-one in people… it’s not necessarily a ballot box or any other power structures that are the key to win the battle, but it’s the Holy Spirit one-on-one in each one of us; You also have to acknowledge that these battles are spiritual battles, and not physical battles; When it says in the Bible that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers and rulers in these dark places… if we’re going to have a struggle or anything regarding hatred, it should be addressed to the principalities and powers of darkness who stand condemned, rather than the human pawns that are in this physical sphere that are just a mere shadow of the spiritual battle that is truly going on; We have access to the power to change ourselves… not literally us changing ourselves, but allowing God to change us; When you see a terrorist and you see that God loves them and that God can change them, that changes your whole mindset of how you’re going to address them and interact with them, not as somebody to fear and hate, but as somebody who Jesus died for that needs to hear the message of the gospel… that’s a completely different mindset; Christians should get together and pray for these people, that God would illuminate their minds to what they’re doing, to fill them with the love of Jesus Christ, and somehow make a way that they could know about Jesus
