As I look around at the church today I see way to much conflict amongst those that call them selves Christians. Many argue over things like which denomination is "the most spirit filled" while others point fingers at which church is going to make it to heaven and which are condemned to hell. I see so called men and women of God getting into knock down drag outs over things like when the Rapture is going to happen which scripture does give a rough time frame for that. However Jesus did not call us to argue over any of this. You see Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy and is the one that wants every Christian bickering amongst each other what better way to hinder a move of the spirit than to get us of focus of what really matters.
So how do you make ministry effective in such a way that glorifies God? I have to first look at the times we live in and based on all that is going on in this dark world we are closer than ever to Jesus's return. So there should be a huge sense of urgency to lead as many a possible Jesus. But what is the best way to do this? First keep in mind the following scripture:
1 Peter 4:11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Based on this scripture alone so many have it wrong in their ministry. Literally all we need to do is just simply lift up Jesus as our Lord and savior no debate or argument required. The best way to do this is through you personal testimony on how you came to know Jesus even if it is something as simple as what you came out of like myself Jesus delivered me from drugs and witchcraft you can find my story on YouTube. Sometimes glorifying God is as simple as just letting them know that Jesus cares like when you see some that looks down just simply assure them that by giving their issues to Jesus he will make everything OK.
Above all if you began to practice just lifting up Jesus not only with words but with actions you will begin to see a move of God in your life like never before. Now if you have not asked Jesus in your heart I as a minister of Jesus have to warn you time is running out in this world and if your one that fails to start a relationship with Jesus your will not like what happens after this life. I urge you if you do not know Jesus please ask him into your heart and to forgive your sins before it's to late. He loves you and wants to forgive you no matter what you have done in you life all you have to do is ask. Please feel free to write or our contact info is below You may also Subscribe to my YouTube channel just simply look for Jeff Stoker.

Want to know when Jesus is coming back? The bible says that no one knows the day nor the hour. Matthew 24:36 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But notice it does not say we cannot calculate the year. I believe Jesus will return sometime in 2017. Why do you say? Well lets take a look at the parable of the fig tree in Matthew 24:32-34 32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Most would agree this is speaking of Israel becoming a nation again. How many know that this happened in 1947? now a generation is 70 years right? and this scripture clearly states that the generation when Israel becomes a nation will not pass until all these thing pass away this pertains to Jesus's return so you add a generation to 1947 which 1947+70 what year do you get? This being said where does this put us in Biblical history? almost mid tribe.

1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
2 But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.
3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?
5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;
6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:
8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,
9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
11 For there is no respect of persons with God.
12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;
13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)
16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
17 Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God,
18 And knowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law;
19 And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness,
20 An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law.
21 Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?
22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?
23 Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God?
24 For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written.
25 For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision.
26 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?
27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law?
28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

We live in a world where many people want to claim they love Jesus. But let's look at the truth in the fruits. Why do most want to sing about sex, drugs, suicide, murder and idolatry but avoid singing about Jesus? Why is it everyone can talk about how bad such and such is but cannot talk about how good Jesus is. We talk about how adultery and homosexuality is OK but neglect focusing on Jesus who is the only one can deliver us from our sins. We are more worried about that Sunday football game. when we need to be reading our bibles and focusing on Jesus our Lord and saviour. Even our schools we have neglected God's truth and replaced it with so called science(macro evolution, old earth THEORY, and the big bang THEORY) and fake history as well as taking prayer out of schools. But here is my Question how can God move in our country if we kick out. Just remember who was beaten for our transgressions, by whose stripes we are healed, Who died for our sins, Went to hell and took the keys to death and hell that we can be forgiven. No one can ever love us as much as Jesus loves, we spit in his face by the thing we believe and a lot of what we do. We have ignored Jesus for far to long. It is time to repent turn from our wicked ways and turn back to him. I gave my life to Jesus 17 years ago he delivered me from drugs and witchcraft and now I am totally devoted to him. I would not be here today had it not been for Jesus and I will be telling other about him even on my death bed. This is what I live for and you should to. If anyone has any questions or comments feel free to contact me.

Dear heavenly Father I come as humbly as I know how and ask first that you for give me for all my imperfections because even as your servants we still make mistakes. I humbly thank you that you find me and this ministry worthy to be persecuted for your name sake as hard as enduring persecution can be. I pray that you some how bring those that persecute this ministry as well as other ministries that stand up for your holiness and righteousness will some day soon come to repentance and that they to can have the same peace and joy as all of your other follower I also pray that there be revival in Pleasant Hill and the rest of Sabine Parish that leads to nationwide revival. In Jesus mighty name I pray that this nation will once again turn to you Lord God. For it is in Jesus precious, mighty, and Holy name I pray Amen.

1 John 2:18 18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

This is how a godly marriage should look. 22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

'I Love Muslims - I'd Take a Bullet for You' Tim Berends lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, and has a goal of handing out 300 tracts a day on The Strip where 40 million people a year visit the casinos. His special burden is for Muslims. For the last two years, he has traveled to the annual Arab International Festival in Dearborn, Michigan. This year, he and a friend were able to get over 1,600 copies of Is Allah Like You? into the hands of Muslims attending the festival. A section of downtown Dearborn was roped off and security was tightly controlled, making it very difficult to witness. Four Christians were arrested for disturbing the peace when Muslims mobbed them. Another one had to call the FBI to help him escape the area. Local police were of little help. Berends used a different approach. He was wearing a T-shirt with "I (heart) Muslims" on the front and "John 9:35-38" on the back. When approaching someone he would smile warmly and say: As-Salamu Alaykum (pronounced, aah suh laah mu aah lay kum) which means "peace be upon you" in Arabic. He was able to hand out tracts at about 30 concession stands before security stopped him. He moved to another area but soon the police arrived and told him he would have to go outside the perimeter if he wished to distribute literature. Rather than fight for his rights of free speech on a public street, he complied and still was able to continue reaching hundreds of Muslims. The Christians who were arrested or rescued by the FBI were able to make a point about their Constitutional Rights, but failed in their mission to get much gospel into the hands of sinners. However, only a few people turned Berends down and less than a dozen tracts were thrown on the ground. By wearing the "I love Muslims" T-shirt and greeting them with "Peace be upon you" in Arabic, he usually was welcomed long enough to get a tract into their hands. "Most Christians have a fear of witnessing to Muslims," Berends says. "But they are just another kind of lost souls. When I see a group of young men coming toward me, I walk directly toward them with a smile, raise my voice and say 'As Salamu Alaykum.' Usually they will smile as they see my T-shirt and hear the greeting. I give each member in the group a tract and say: 'Here is one for each of you, so you won't fight over them.'" Using this good humor, he was rarely turned down. Berends believes that this soft approach will get more of them to consider the gospel than with confrontation. He is ready to discuss with them should they wish, but always with the same attitude. If they ask about the tract before they read it, he will say something like: "It's our love letter to you." If they ask if he is a Muslim, he may reply, "No. But I love Muslims. I would be willing to take a bullet for you!" Converted Muslim Mohammad Al Ghazoli, author of Christ, Muhammad and I, tells how, near the end of his frustrating life as a Muslim, he finally was given a Bible. When he thumbed it open, his eye fell on Matt. 11:28: "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Immediately he thought: "What kind of God is this?" Fascinated, he continued to read and finally surrendered to the God of the Bible. The unconditional love described in the Bible is a completely foreign concept to the average Muslim. Berends has found that approaching the Muslim with this attitude of unconditional love, any hostility will usually be defused long enough to get a gospel tract into their hands.

Camp Fire Ministries has now implemented a program that chases down our enemy Satan and his demons that are causing much false belief in what the paranormal really is. So we are now going to people who have an alleged haunting in their home or around them investigating using some of the paranormal research techniques along with our own discernment. If we find something we cast it out in Jesus name and teach those that had the issue to keep it away by first asking Christ in to there hearts and than we teach them their authority in Christ to battle any demon that tries to mess with them after we have helped them. Feel free to ask any questions you may have.

One night I had a dream-- I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord and across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints, one belonged to me and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that many times along the path of my life, there was only one set of footprints. I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life. This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you would walk with me all the way, but I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there is only one set of footprints. "I don't understand why in times when I needed you most, you should leave me." The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never, never leave you during your times of trial and suffering. "When you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.
