are afraid of things that are running away from them. When they say witches and wizards, someChristians are so worried, when you say money, some Christians are ready to die for it. Manycome to our church but there is no change in their life styles. When you see them somewhereelse they do not look as Christians. They look like Jezebel. When you look closely at present-dayChristians, you will notice that something is missing. They are not like the apostles of old at all.
Let‟s not deceive ourselves. Look at Stephen in the Bible, he was appointed an usher yet he was
working signs and wonders; how much more the apostles in the upper-room.
Many of our members would say, “Come to our church, our General Overseer
will pray for you
and your problems will disappear.” But what about you? What is stopping you from giving that
person a spiritual first-aid before inviting him to the church? Many of us will arrive at the gate ofheaven and see a query waiting for them. An

Once I was inside an aircraft, and there also was a lady from MFM London sitting beside one
man. All of a sudden the man‟s eyes
begun to turn and he was having heart attack and vomiting
