14 BOCNEWS.com MARCH 2018 middle-cadre engineer, yet the Holy Spirit spoke to him. So, when he told the general manager that, “I think I found what was wrong,” he was not a high-level engineer. So, they were looking at him saying, “What are you talk- ing about? You are not a high-level engineer.” “But the Holy Spirit ministered to me.” The Holy Spirit talked to him and said, “I want you to shut down the boiler so-so-so and so-so-so and turn this one on. Remove this and place it here.” And he did. What had taken engineers from Germany and Canada two weeks, and they still weren’t able to fix, he fixed in one day. Are you getting me? That’s a true story. Afterwards he said, “Let’s try.” Everybody was looking at him. They started the thing, and the whole refinery came back to work. And they were wondering, “Where did you learn all this?” Who taught him? The Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit wants to teach you. Say ‘amen’ to that. He wants to teach you; He loves to teach. He loves to teach. And it can happen to you—I’m sure it’s happened to you already. I’ll take the word of God and I’ll be reading, and the Holy Spirit will begin to teach me. I’ll say some- thing, and I’ll think, “Woops. I don’t think I have heard that before. How did I say that?” And then when I go and check, it’s there. You understand me? Holy Spirit teaches you; He teaches. However, remember that you have to be willing to learn. Holy Spirit cannot teach someone who believes that he knows more than the Holy Spirit. He won’t teach. It is one thing to hear the words of Jesus; it is another thing to know how to apply them. Correct application of the word 0f God is what is called wisdom. You can know the Bible from front to back and memorize it, if you don’t have the Holy Spirit to teach you the correct application, it won’t bear the same fruit.

No reason for panic until the mountain blows. However, the church is suppose to be seeing the Day approaching (HEB 10:25, 1Thess 5:4, Rev 3:1-3), and they are to be making preparations, while they remain ready and waiting for their Lord to return, even if the mountain does not blow tomorrow. Remaining watchfull and alert indu- cates that you have not fallen victom to spiritual blindness and into the great last days apostasy (2Thess 2:3 Amplified). Peter warns true believers to be on your guard concerning these scoff- ers. "Therefore dear friends, since you already know this, BE ON YOUR GAURD so that you may not be CARRIED AWAY by the ERROR of lawless (SCOFFERS) and FALL FROM YOUR SECURE POSITION!" (2Pet 3:17). The world is now shaking just the way Jesus said that it would. Jesus said that when these things "BEGIN" to take place, stand up, lift up your heads, because your redemption (deliverance) is drawing near"( Luke 21 all). Are Christians supposed to be liv- ing, "LIFE AS USUAL?" Or, should we be sounding the ALARM? (Exe 33:1-9). "Those who were READY, went in with Him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut" (Matt25:1-13). Until next time, Jesus is COMING SOON! Are you going to be READY? DELUSION ... from pg 12 Associate Pastor at New Hope, Rev. Quincy Shannon, said it was amazing to see the kids imitating the hand- shakes in the movie and clapping at the end. “It is important to have a film like this to show us in a positive light. Even the antagonist in the movie had some positive quotes,” said Rev. Shannon. “It’s good to see our community wrap around this movie, it’s still sell- ing out, individuals are dressing in African attire and getting in touch with their roots.” Rev. Shannon said the first black action hero movie he saw was “Meteor Man” starring Robert Townsend that came out in 1993. “It’s a powerful time in our his- tory. And I hope it shows Hollywood how important these movies are. We showed up, showed out, give us more.” When you think about how Europeans conquered Africa, took over the diamond mines and other lucrative natural resources within those African nations; enslaved many Africans; it was a powerful moment for me when the villain “Killmonger” played by Michael B. Jordan, said before his death: “Bury me in the ocean with my ancestors who jumped from ships, ‘cause they knew death was better than bondage.’” And there you have it folks, The Black Panther mojo has definitely sent a message to America.
