The Pope Of Pentecost Welcomes All Apostolic Youth Back To School

The summer is over and its time to go back to school. Officially across the United States the youth of today have returned back to school. No more sleeping in. No more late nights watching tv on the couch. Summer camp is over. Its now time to hit the books and study so you can be somebody. Perhaps a lawyer, a doctor, or even the Pastor of a new Pentecostal Apostolic Church. One thing that is certain is that before you hit the books you must put God first.

Students, there are two scriptures that I want you to keep in mind as you go back to school this Fall Season. Psalm 37:5 says “Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.” Also Proverbs 3:5-6 says “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. “

Pray before you hit the door so that no evil will harm you. Cover yourself with the Blood of Jesus which protects you from all danger seen and unseen. Make God first in all you do this school year and watch Him give you every single grade your heart desires. Apostolic girls, wear your skirts proud (and uh, don’t lift them up either when that joker trys to tempt you). You are a royal priesthood, a peculiar person, and a chosen generation. Don’t give in to the temptations that my be set before you. Apostolic boys, wear those long pants (and no shorts in gym) proud! If they ask you why you look and dress the way you do, tell them you are dressing to be pleasing unto Jesus who is the Author and finisher of your faith. Be a leader and not a follower. Most importantly (besides dress code) be a living witness for Jesus, so your light can shine that they (the other students) may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

Quick story, when I was in high school, around 9th grade, there was a boy from Greater Refuge Temple that use to stand outside and pass out tracts school would dismiss. 16 years later that boy has just became an Elder within the Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ. I could not believe it. He probably does not even remember that I know him from school. But its a blessing to see that God kept that young man all these years and now he is dedicating his life back to the Lord in service. You too can be this young man. You too can take your tracts and witness when you get out of school. And if your school says not to pass out religious pamphlets, not a problem, you can still lift up Jesus in prayer. Pray over your test, pray over your meals, take your chapel veil out and wear it proud when you pray to the Lord. (Muslim girls go to school with veils on, why cant you too. And their god is not even alive….he is still dead).

With all that said, put the Lord first in all you do and I guarentee you, He will not steer you wrong! Be blessed this school year in Jesus Name.
