    "I love it when we negotiate with God. We always lose, but you know."- Ken Fish 

     

    "If you and God have different points of view, you are wrong and need to surrender quickly." - Ken Fish 

     

    "Things like personality traits or cultural traits that are not surrender can become stumbling blocks for us." - Dr. Madeline C. Henners

     

    "The truth is Jesus and He existed before anything was created." - Dr. Madeline C. Henners

     

    "Once you trust the scriptures, then you want to see it happen." - Dr. Madeline C. Henners

     

    "Many ways we read scripture are practically cessationist or deism. We believe that God started it, but we don't see God moving because we are not asking Him to move." - Dr. Madeline C. Henners

     

    "Many people know how to pray but don't know how to listen." - Dr. Madeline C. Henners

     

    "If we have low expectations that God will move, waiting on the Lord will have a very low purpose." - Dr. Madeline C. Henners

    "We don't want to fail to acknowledge that victimization occurred at IHOP." -Ken Fish

     

    "I concluded that Mike would never return to ministry." -Ken Fish 

     

    "When the 'love bank' as they refer to in marriage counseling, or the trust reservoir goes dry, it takes a very long time to build it back up." - Ken Fish.

     

     "We have to be scrupulous about how we live, knowing that it isn't always easy and that temptation is real; if we aren't going to do that, I don't know how we are ever going to present any sort of witness to the World." -Ken Fish 

     

    "God can heal, and people do not need to be ruined for life." -Ken Fish 

     

    "Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God." -James1:19-20 (ESV)

     

    "Fleeing is preferable to failing." -Ken Fish 

     

    How should we think like a Christian and pray in these times? 

    1.    Pray for healing for those who were victimized because God can heal! 

    2.    We should pray for mercy for those who have made the mistakes. 

    3.    We have to pray for our hearts to remain soft and guarded so we do not fall away from our faith. 

    4.     If you find yourself in a situation of temptation - FLEE! Cut the lines and run.

    S5E13 - Evangelism , its not a Christian Cake Walk 

    S5E13 - Evangelism , its not a Christian Cake Walk 

    Ken and Grant will talk with Winston Wu, a Christian light in the marketplace who works in financial services. Ken and Winston have been friends for around ten years. Winston started his relationship with Jesus at age 10, and he has a long legacy of believers on his mother's side. Winston followed Jesus for a couple of years after his salvation, and like many of us, he drifted. During the 2008 financial crisis, some new friends brought him back to Jesus. Winston left his job in finance to become an entrepreneur - all while honoring Jesus in the particularly cutthroat environment of Wall Street.

Must listen

This is an every Thursday must listen. I began listening when the podcast first came out. My faith has grown exponentially ever since. Like attracts like and Ken attracts the wisest, most powerful and Loving people of God. (2 Tim 1:7) Let him who has ears to hear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the Churches through this ministry. ❤️🔥🌹🙏
