So, my wife gets an IPhone 4. She does not know what she has. She had some sort if goofy flip type phone that texting was hard and did not show all of the message, did not get email, did not get internet, …. it was just like an old technology phone that was klunkier than an Edsel. I hated it. We would laugh at it. Me and the kids have macs. All in. But she resisted….until today.
Now, let me tell you this. She does not know what she has. She has an Iphone4 but does not know how to work it. She does not know all it has to offer. She does not know all that is is capable of. She does not know all that it can do. She does not know all that it was made to do. She does not appreciate the power of it in a traffic jam to get around stuff. She does not know the power it has to skype all over the world. She does not know the power of money and purchasing it has. She does not know …… well, the power and ability of all it was meant to be. Then, I sit on the porch and think about me and God.
God has all this power, all this salvation, all this healing, all this provision, all this peace, all this love, all this joy, all this forgiveness, all this righteousness…… and I don’t just grab it! Me! I don’t access the application. I don’t use it. I don’t call on it. I don’t just get into it and just soak in all that God has for me. What am I thinking? My wife has this powerful product and she got it because me and the girls have apple stuff and she sees it and says I want that too.
God has it, I want it too. I think I can still learn from my wife. God has all these applications for my life and I don’t know what I have. I thought she did not know what she has…..it is really me. God has it for me and you.

Dunamis…a fancy preacher word for power…..it is where we get the word dynamite. That is what happened today with me… A neat demonstration of God’s power….
I was coming out of my local State Farm office when I saw a young man with his hands full. So I opened the door for him and said, God bless you. He did not do like most people do and say…you too…or ignore me… rather he was …. well, dunamistically confrontational with a smile on his face..said….what did you say….are you a Christian? God is so neat…. It was an inquisitive question….with power.
He has started a ministry in Cassadaga, FL. The center of satanic spiritualism for 115 years. Everett is a man with a purpose. To confront Satan on his turf. This takes guts. Dunamis Community and Outreach Ministries…Just hitting Satan where it hurts.
Jeremiah did this. This prophet spoke against false religion. That is what my brother, Everett is doing. And he will succeed. He has the …well, dynamite of God on his side. He will confront Cassadaga. I bless him.
There are a lot of people who do church on Sunday or whatever day you go to church…..and they do it IN church. Me too! But Everett is doing it in Satan’s backyard. One of two places around that is a wooo Satanic place.
Blessings my brother.

This is totally cool. A sonic boom. Breaking the sound barrier.
Have you ever heard a jet break the sound barrier? If you have not….well, it is out of this world neat. Living in Florida, near the Kennedy Space Center, the Space Shuttle coming and going, you get to see the take off, which is neat, and you get to see it….or hear it come back in… the space shuttle with its classic….. a double sonic boom.
Noise, sound. Just like the early church. You see, in Acts 2 at the day of Pentecost, the scriptures talk about a sound that came from heaven. It was the sound of a might rushing wind. It may not have been a sonic boom,….but if you have never heard a sonic boom….well, … it is dynamic and goes to the core of your body. I have heard many. This is like the power of Jesus Christ. He is powerful.
People have compared the sound of a tornado to the sound of a frieght train. Again, very powerful stuff that is associated with sound. What I say to you tonight is this. God is associated with sounds. In Acts….it was the sound of a might rushing wind……may have been a sonic boom…..may have been a tornado. But God is into sounds.
Listen for God to speak to you. He may do it in a small voice, or in a crash or boom or tornado… But, God loves you and He is trying to communicate with you in so many different ways…. sound is one…His word is another. I think I will show you about His word tomorrow and a certain group of people.
