LA this weekend.

LA this weekend.

Post  methodikal on Mon Jan 26, 2009 9:35 am

Jz wanted to share some things from this past weekend while @ Pastor Eli's place.

He had a great message on Sunday about moving mountains. No not like Usher, but like how Zechariah said it. (Zech. 14:1-14.)

Ptr. Eli told a story about his brother. His brother was a school teacher and described him as an "intellect". He always needed concrete facts for anything and everything. He also drank a lot, especially when he recently started having problems. Ptr. Eli said that his brother made fun of him b/c of what he believed in and that he ridiculed Ptr. Eli for believing blindly.

This past Christmas, Ptr. Eli's parents gave his brother the Bible on CD. His parents told him to listen to the CD b/c he probably wont have time to read it. Well when the problems came, his brother turned to alcohol first...then, he started listening to the CD that his parents gave him. His brother said that ever since he started to listen to the CD, he was able to sleep, peacefully, and stopped drinking, COLD TURKEY. His brother recently accepted the Lord, and he called Ptr. Eli on the Sat we arrived. They spoke on the phone for a long time, and Ptr. Eli's brother said to him, "I finally understand why you believe. I am sorry for how I treated you before..." (or something to that degree)

Ptr. Eli had been praying to move that mountain (his brother's salvation) for 14 years. That mountain finally moved. Ceaseless praying/faith on Ptr. Eli's part has given way for his brother to be saved. How great is that. Very Very moving. Amen to the power of the Word of God, whether written or on audio.

Wow. That was touching to hear. It gave me the encouragement to continue to pray for other ppl's salvation esp. my fams. Also, it had something to do w/ endurance, patience and faith! Thanks, Matt for posting this. I was blessed just reading it. Very Happy All glory to God!!

Definitely a great testimony. We need to remember that God has his own plans and time. All we can do is pray and encourage one another. We also have to hold on to that faith that God is all powerful and he can do anything.
