Church and said:
‘I have a sleeping giant in the earth and I’m going to wake him up…’
I thought that was great! I was all for it until He finished sentence.
‘…and you’re the needle.’
‘Lord, why me?’ I asked.
‘Why not?’ He answered.
‘OK, let’s go!’ I said.
Since then, it’s happened more times than I can count. I’ll be preaching along just enjoying myself,
when suddenly, the needle anointing will come on me and I’ll say something that wakes people up.
Sometimes they get so mad they want to punch me and other times they’re glad. On occasion,
preachers will come to me later and say,
‘You made me so angry I decided to go home and study my Bible until I could prove you
wrong. But the more I read, the more I realized you were right. What you said was in the
Bible all along!’
It wasn’t me that was right. It was The WORD.
All those preachers were good God-loving people. Most of them had more formal Bible training than
I did, but they’d been so blinded by their religious mindsets, they couldn’t see the clear truths
of The WORD. Their traditions had made “The WORD of God of none effect” (Mark 7:13) in their lives.
The LORD just used me to provoke them into looking at the Bible with a fresh perspective. When they did,
they saw the truth, and the truth made them free.
