    J. Claudio - You need to go to Jesus in prayer for HIS guidance in your ministry, not to people. People will give you THEIR ideas. Jesus told His disciples, Apostles to pray for His words to speak AFTER they r'cvd the power of the Holy Ghost on the Day of Pentecost. You don't have His spirit or you would know this. I am NOT judging you; please believe that. I pray for God's wisdom for you.

    As we use faith we should see Christ and the church that he gave his life for in a new light. God's Word ignites our hearts for worship and for reaching out to our world with the Gospel. The same Holy Spirit dwells in us and gives us power to be a light and impact in this dark world.

    Does anyone on here know that it was at least15 years after Jesus established His church in Acts ch. 2 that the epistles even BEGAN to be written, the 'epistles' being all the books after Acts. So where did all the scriptures come from that the apostles and disciples use to witness to people during those 15 yrs? Answer - from their knowledge of the O.T. and Jesus' 3 yr. ministry with them.

    We must be born again if we want to see the Kingdom of God.
    Before the day of Pentecost, the apostles had no POWER to do the will of God.
    Jesus commanded the apostles not to leave Jerusalem,without the power of the Holy Ghost.
    With man it is impossible,but not with God,for with God all things are possible.
    We need power to witness,to pray,to understand the scriptures and to bear fruits .
