2014 April 16 - Morning Manna

Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain: Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind: Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:"(Psalms 104:1-4)
Today's Morsel: When you review religious history, we hear of some of the most fiery ministers in their time. The Wesley Brothers, Charles Parham, William Seymour, Billy Graham, Nathaniel Urshan, J.T. Pugh, Nathaniel Haney, Lee Stoneking, Jeff Arnold, Jerry Jones, David Bernard, John Putnam, The Shalm Brothers, The Freemans, the list could go on and on. These men and women were and are anointed with the power of the Holy Ghost.  It as Jeremiah said, "Fire shut up in my bones."  And once that Holy Ghost fire is there, in the pulpit area and the church, it's going to be electrified with the anointed Word of God and signs following.  The psalmist said, "Bless the LORD, O my soul...Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:"  The writer of Hebrews tells us, "But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation" (Hebrews 1:13-14)?  In these last days, the church needs to be on fire with the Holy Ghost if it is going to eradicate sin from people's lives.  The fire must always be burning in the altar.  As they used to say in the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church I attended when I was young, "If you get in the pulpit to preach, you better have some corn in the crib.  So don't come up in here with nothing."
Sing:  I wish somebody's soul would catch on fire, catch on fire, catch on fire, I wish somebody's soul would catch on fire, burning in the Holy Ghost.
