My children have all received the HGB, but not all of the spouses have. I do pray for my grandchildren!
Has he not heard anyone speak in tongues during a service in 4 years?

Has he not seen anyone get the Holy Ghost during a service in 4 years?

He has heard tongues and interpretation, and folks speak in tongues while praying, but he thought that was all the charismatic gift of tongues. He doesn't remember a message about a personal baptism of the Holy Ghost with speaking in tongues.

We have a large church so the alter area is pretty far from where he sits. He has not been close enough to witness someone receiving the HGB!

Many See the UPC just as people saw the titanic. They said it could not go down. When it was reported that they would sink people went right on doing what they were doing, saying it can't sink. the first life boats left half full. People keep on dancing to the music and ignoring the warning.

Only when it was too late did they believe.

The same thingis happening in the UPC. She is on her way down. People are daincing to the music form WEC and ignore the warning cries.

The United Pentecostal Church is better off . . .

The resolution passed . . .

I won't forget the moment I heard the results of the vote . . .

I declared Hallelujah! Let the local assembly choose their what's best for them . . .

Instead of Rev. Immaginit who resides on the other side of the District or further . . .

I felt a moment of clarity . . .

Instead of the issue being put off and causing more conflict . . .

Finally there was a resolution to the resolution . . . (no pun intended)

There's no confusion here . . .

Only confusion that may exist is caused by one's own double-mindedness . . .

Yes, there may be consequences . . .

Those who leave will be better off . . .

As will the organization they leave . . .

Unity was called for . . . in the name of pro-ad ministers abandoning their convictions . . .

It's always the pro-ad or moderates who are supposed to capitulate to the right . . .

Now comes the “preferred” apostolic assembly of Tulsa . . .

Supposed great men are jumping ship from all areas of the US . . .

Will the UPCI lose 100? 500? 1000? Or more . . .

'Tis folly to leap from a perfectly floating ship . . .

Only sharks await in the waters below . . .

These “great” men will find something to disagree with each other on eventually . . .

They can't agree on much else than television and basic doctrine . . .

Amazing it took this long for RKS to come to this conclusion . . .

Too bad it's self-serving . . .

Too bad it requires the pro-ad ministers . . .

The moderates . . .

The ministers he doesn't agree with . . .

To back down . . .

To try and reverse the vote on Resolution 4 . . .

The UPCI will only suffer so long as the grand stagemasters remain . . .

Once the drama is ended . . .

Once these "great" few leave the organization . . .

Healing can and will begin . . .

And it won't be from a man . . .

Healing of this kind can and will only come from God . . .

Again forgive the personal reference I certainly have no desire to offend you. I was visiting my father once and went to service with him he is a Charismatic preacher I guess because I was there he preached about the HGB and asked how many had spoken in tongues maybe 20% raised their hands in a crowd of about 2000. The shock on my father's face was evident. As we went to lunch he did not mention it and neither did I.

You couldn't be more wrong about this.

Have you noticed NO cons have been preaching at Christ Church? Likes attract. Is this evil??? I think not. I believe the Lord is in this myself. If the passing of Res. 4 was the sole reason it would be foolish but everyone on each side knows this is NOT the reason but the last straw.
Wisdom speaks.

Many people see those that are mad at the UPCI for allowing TV ads, as control freaks bent on tell God how to be saved.
