The Bridge crew isn’t crazy about mornings.  Unless they’re with you 🙂

What we can’t stop talking about:  the Atlanta meeting.

Don’t go back to sleep.  Celebrate Friday by hitting snooze and spending ten extra minutes under the covers with The Bridge.  You’ll know why we’re all saying 2019 is off to a fantastic start!

Share this with a friend who’s been binge reading with us all week.

By Brother John Shepard

“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”  –John 6:63

I’m sure everyone has read, or at least heard about, the account in Acts the second chapter concerning the 120 being in one accord and in one place, with the highest expectation of receiving something, which they received with evidence on the Day of Pentecost.

I propose that you ask yourself a couple of questions.

Question One

What made this many people gather themselves together and wait for something that no one had ever seen on this earth before?

During the three-year period leading up to this point, Jesus taught them what to expect, what it would do for them, and how to prepare themselves to receive it.  His message is known commonly as:  The Truth.

He knew that once they received this power from heaven, they could take the truth along with this power and overcome their lives.

Question Two

What benefit would there be with this power from heaven if you had no idea how to use it or what to use it for?

The answers to both questions address why the truth is so important.

If you are unfamiliar with this necessary and vital power from heaven, known as the Holy Ghost, please don’t be afraid of it.  God has an anointed ministry in the earth today who can explain the importance of it to you, and prove through the Scriptures its value.

This Minister’s Meeting In Atlanta Was Tremendous

Seeing the ministry work together so diligently to make sure that we are of one mind and of one judgment throughout the Body of Christ is something wonderful.  Great men of God have dedicated their lives and worked for many years to get the truth back as it was when Jesus taught it originally.  The purpose of this meeting was no different.

Every Meeting Shines More And More Light On It.

It’s priceless to me to know that I am included with the people of God who are allowing the Holy Ghost to really bring our minds to life and truly understand how to live the truth.

We Have The Tools

The spirit of God and the truth are the tools we need to overcome our lives.  If you don’t have them, they are available.  I encourage you to not let your tools become rusty by not using them, but rather always keep them in operation.

I guarantee they will never let you down.

“If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”  –John 14:15-17

“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”  –John 16:13

  1. Nicely written, B. John. It is so important to our spiritual lives to take time and learn about the Holy Ghost and the truth of God’s Word. I am truly thankful for men of God who have lain down their lives and are committed to helping God’s people.
