Watched a message by him over the weekend . Tremendously blessed by it .
The message found me out and exposed all manner of unbelief in me that i needed to repent of.

I don't want to get too much in your business but is there anything you can share of this unbelief you had? I am quite serious, not trying to make fun of you or anything

what was the message?
I've always thought he was more of the "prosperity" preaching type..
yeah, I know, don't throw away the baby with the bath water.
and God can use anyone..
I know.. I know....lol.
I admit, I have a bit of a hard time with the prosperity preachers.
(that's just MY issue, though. )

so what was the message, pcamps?

He seems more like a motivational speaker than a preacher. When he speaks he rarely uses scripture, just a good motivational speaker. He says he may throw it in from time to time. That is not the type of preacher that I want to listen too. You can watch the video on youtube.

Hi Sparrow

Joel is one of a few tv ministers who i do not see as preaching a prosperity message.

I actually believe in the prosperity of the Lord , but i also believe i do not have to follow it .

Goodness and mercy shallow me all the days of my life.

Is message was calling the things that are not as though they are .

The crux of the message was how we speak things into being , through the things we say.

People can say well this is just positive thinking , well i do not ,we are what we believe there is no getting around that "As a man thinks in his heart so is he"

That which i greatly feared came upon me .

Philippians 4

8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you

Our God and Father is a 24/7 God who is abundantly available and utterly dependable.

Well i disagree i think he speaks life and not death .

Quoting a bunch of scriptures does not necessarily equate to being a good message.

Like the good old hymn says Break thou the bread of life dear Lord to me.

I believe it's possible to take only one verse from the word , preach on it and speak life into the hearer.

Fundy see my answer to sparrow.

Fundy i am not quite sure where you are going with this but i do hope you are believing and trusting God in every area of your life , before you are quick to judge me because i confessed there are areas in my life where the Lord had shown me i was not believing him for.
God demands truth in the inward parts .
