Swaggart’s Swagger

Holding On To My Faith

When all else is gone what do we have left? I often wonder where I would be if it were not for my faith in God. My grandparents left me a hefty inheritance; a belief and trust in God no matter what comes or goes in life. Lust means we love uniting sin truthfully with the soul lying dormant. Well when we are born in the world of sin we must be taught of the sin in the world that we have the opportunity to turn our lives over to God that we bring life to the soul once again. After we learn of God we apply what we learn to our lives. When we do learn of Jesus and the work he finished here in the earth for us that we may live we are to do better.

Jeremiah 22: 1-5 thus said the Lord, go down to the house of the king of Judah, and speak there this word, and say, hear the Word of the Lord, O king of Judah, that sittest upon the throne of David, thou, and thy servants, and thy people that enter in by these gates: thus saith the lord; execute ye judgment and righteousness and deliver the spoils out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place. For if ye do this thing indeed then shall there enter in by the gates of this house kings sitting upon the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, he, and his servants, and his people. But if ye will not hear these words, I swear by myself, saith the Lord, that this house shall become a desolation.

Believe the Word
Child-like faith where we don’t think so much but rather just obey
Faith that endures the test of times
Faith, love, and obedience

Evangelist Pastor Jimmy Swaggart one of the world’s greatest Apostles has a very profound work. He brings the work of Christ to the Cross and back to the Holy Ghost so sagaciously. He is a man that went before God, but now is in tune with Him to get the Message of the Cross to the World. God has so richly blessed him intellectually with the Word of God. Pastor Swaggart has a heartfelt love for souls. He goes forth with such a great and intense learned obeisance to the anointing God has placed in his life. His message of who Jesus Christ is, why He came, and what He came for and all that he left with us is not of his own intellect but that of the Holy Ghost the continuator of the work of Christ.

Swaggart’s swagger began when he became born again. He began to strut along the back streets of nowhere to find every lost soul he could find and tell them of Salvation. He boasted of the blood that could save the lost of the lost. He boasted of Christ dying on the Cross for sin that should have put us to death but he yet brags on the fact that this mean sinful way of death can give us life in the Spirit yet today. As he prances and gloats over the Cross through the teaching and preaching of the Gospel he maintains his swagger; he don’t change his message.

Evangelist Pastor Jimmy Swaggart is a man after God’s heart. He is a man that leads out as an Apostle not only to his reformation but to the world. He is preeminent and superior in the heart of God because of his continual repenting spirit. God has dominion, dominance, and preeminence in his life. He is a man that had a zeal that would have caused all of us to stand before Christ too soon. Had not God slowed him down many would have faced hell’s fire. But instead, the hell he faced has kept the fire burning within him and now that fire flows from heart to heart of his congregation and beyond. Pastor Swaggart I appreciate and love you in the Lord. Thank you for allowing Jesus Christ to rule in your heart and the Holy Ghost ruling your life.

When man will come to cross points in life they can be encouraged that they have another point that they can reach out to and be saved. No matter the situation in life they can still surrender it to the Lord because He has already paid a deadly price for my redemption. We don’t have to suppose we have hope, we know we have hope. There is nothing to be assumed, inferred, presumed, thought or believed other than what the Word has clearly said. We are the superintendents of man’s soul in the way that Christ said we should be. He that wins souls is wise. There is nothing in the Word that will supercede what Jesus has done for us on the Cross. Who else will we find willing to lose their lives for doing right?

Whereas most men will suppress Christ in that they wants to overpower him; Pastor Swaggart submits to Christ and him only when it comes to the spiritual nature of man. He doesn’t throw a curb ball and try to hide his hand afterwards. If he believes it, he says it and stands up for it. I like your swagger; your walk with God. I appreciate that you don’t try to conceal Jesus in your bosom only to rise when you want a dollar bill. I appreciate the fact that you taught me I can forgive others and myself too most of all. I appreciate you coming from under the cover man wanted you to stay under to protect their images. I love you for maintaining your stand with Christ.

When I was younger and would sin, I always would see Christ hung on the Cross. I didn’t really understand then but when I stopped my sin, I stopped seeing him hanging on that Cross and found myself alive and living life with Him. He is not dead but alive and because He lives I live also. There is no greater joy than that of Christ. There is no greater life to live but that He lives on the inside of us. Thank you for that life lesson. When we look around we can’t find too many men that will submit to the obedience of God if it means we will be looked upon differently. That’s just it; we want to be different. We want to abandon our ways and yield ourselves faithful to God.

Woe to them that speak evil of one another that is in Christ. Some things we leave to God to work out in His own timing. We are debtors one to another to restore, lift up, and make men come alive in Christ again. We are to live that we cause sinful men to repent their ways.
