Salvation: The First Years (Note: The following is the multi-part testimony of Thomas Christoe that will be given in multiple blog posts. They are taken from his book entitled, “Witness”.)

Remember when I finished the blog entitled, “Poking Sacred Cows, Part Three”, and I said I had a few more sacred cows to poke? I think it is time to poke one again. I am choosing, and I hope wisely, to examine a holiday that is probably going to be a little on the ‘close-to-home’ side. For
What is your purpose? God says He has a purpose for each and every one of us. But “what is it?” we all ask. In this very moment would God’s ultimate purpose for you overwhelm you? Our God is one that set a plan in motion, when Adam sinned, to redeem us ALL. His Son
I am still reeling a bit from the huge Women’s March in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, January 21st. The images I saw on the news covering the event stunned me: what the speakers said, what the women who were interviewed said, the messages on the signs they were carrying- many of the words were both vile and disturbing. How could
“A culture of honor is celebrating who a person is without stumbling over who they’re not.” This quote is by Bill Johnson, pastor of Bethel Church in Redding, California.
"Revival changes community. Reformation changes culture."
"You teach what you know but you reproduce what you are."
“Who Jesus is to you, will be who Jesus is through you.”
“The proof that we have received Christ’s anointing is that we have power; at least in some measurable way, to do what Jesus did.”
"Every area in your life that does not glisten with hope, means that you are believing a lie; and that lie- and whatever area it is associated with, and the perceived future pertaining to it- is a stronghold of the devil in your life."
"God is not raising up 'ministries'; He is raising up bondslaves. After we recognize that the goal is not ministry but joyful slavery, we will begin to see the power of Christ restored to the church."
"The war mode is in us all. It may be attached to our instinct for survival, but it is more directly connected with our love for people. I love my nation, so I am warring on its behalf. Because of love for my family, I war in prayer on their behalf. I love my church, my city, yes, even my own soul, so I war to protect what I love. If there is a natural fight instinct, there is a spiritual fight mode as well. It just needs to be awakened, submitted to Christ and then unleashed against the enemy. If you have a love mode, you also have a war mode. God has created the war mode so we can protect the people we love."
“False humility will not cast out pride, because it is just another form of self righteousness.”
"Have you ever noticed how much praying for revival has been going on of late and how little revival has resulted? The problem is that we have been trying to substitute praying for obeying and it simply will not work. To pray for revival while ignoring the plain precept laid down in scripture is to waste a lot of words and get nothing for your trouble. Prayer will become effective when we stop using it as a substitute for obedience."
"If you never live for the praise of men, you will not die from their criticisms."
"If you engage with the Holy Spirit because you want to merely be effective in ministry, then you're developing professional intimacy...and what do we call people who are intimate as a profession?"
"It is time to stop using what happened in your past as an excuse for what you are not tasting in the present."
"Every denomination is the corpse of a great revival."
"A culture of honor is celebrating a person for who they are without stumbling over who they're not."
