Jim Cymbala: What the Holy Spirit Can Do in Your Preaching

In times like these, we need the power of God more than ever.

Jesus said that the presence and work of the Holy Spirit resembles wind blowing in the leaves of a tree.

Jim Cymbala does not preach correct doctrine about The Holy Spirit but instead has his readers seeking after "new revelations" & "fresh words" Jesus never taught. Add on name it and claim it, blab it and grab it, word faith new age emergent church charismatic chaos? We have what Jesus taught would happen in the end of days. False teachers telling smooth things to those who insist "feelings" are now the replacement for Biblical Facts. That takes to much time and study and does not sell books!

We are not orphans , the Holy Spirit has been here for us since Jesus ascended. If we repent, remove anything in our life that is not pure and or clean, testify what Jesus has done in our lives and get ready to be used.Whether as a preacher or gifts to the poor, God is searching looking, for a man, a man who will take the Gospel in it's power and impact the world !!! Like Wigglesworth, Finney, Spurgeon and Wesley brothers Are you that man ? Preach it Jim !!!

I have always known this to be true according to Scripture. However, I have not been true to my self in preaching it, nor to the Spirit or those whom he came to comfort. Thanks for clearing my vision!
