PAW Convention 2009 (views from an Apostolic Brother thats not PAW)

Praise The Lord Saints;

After all I’ve been through I still have joy. and it is with Joy that I danced danced danced alllllllllllllllllllll night at the PAW convention this year. First things first. I attended the convention Monday, Friday and Saturday!

Monday Night: Noel Jones preached! He did he Noel thang. The Civic Center was packed beyond measure and we had great church. I was pleasantly surprised to hear the PAW National Mass choir. They really did a good job. For the first night, I most certainly give them an A-. As always, Noel Jones is one of my favorite preachers in Pentecost, he gets an A+++ for the Word he delivered that night.

 

 

 

Friday Night: Carolyn Showell preached! Now you know I do not agree with women preachers AT ALL (read your Word saints) however I sat there and listened to see if she could deliver a Word like my girl Jackie McCullough or Sheryl Brady. Those two women are erudite scholars in their own right. Nothing sends me overboard like a male or female who can exegete scriptures. While I was not expecting Carolyn to preach like her counterparts in the gospel, I was looking for some similarities and unfortunately there were none. Now, Showell has been preaching FOREVER. I can recall growing up and seeing her in the Love Express newspaper of NYC on a monthly basis but never had the chance to hear her preach live. I personally give her a C+ for the delivery style and message she preached. Trust me on this, if your a woman and can preach, I’ll give you your props however your still out of order when it comes to the scriptures (1 Timothy 2:12). Get this, Bishop Horace Smith announced that women will now be able to achieve the role of a Bishop in the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World. It was voted on by the board and they approved it. Again PAW, are you not reading your Word, how can a women be a Bishop? Explain that to me. Explain to me 1 Timothy 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; I don’t need to go to seminary nor study Greek to see that a Bishop is a MALE office according to this scripture. OUT OF ORDER PAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lets get it together. Basically what you’ve done is cut the man out all together and allowed it to be God, Christ then WOMEN and that’s not scripture. Read 1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. I don’t get it, I don’t get it, I don’t get it. All of these extraterrestrial gospels that are being preached in the pulpit GOT TO STOP! But you know what, PAW you’ll have to answer to God in regards to this “new revelation” on women and the bishopric….I’m just trying to show you a more excellent way. Further more, I am NOT I repeat am NOT submitting to a women. *sigh* I digress! Needless to say I left out Friday night pretty disappointed. WAIT I take that back, I enjoyed Kevin Styles testimony about him having cancer but God healed him through chemo therapy. Oooooooooo weeeeeeeeeeeee did we dance after that testimony Praise the Lord!

Saturday 1:00pm service at the Marriott Ballroom: This service was second to none! That David Hollis preached us into a Holy Ghost frenzy. He actually came from the book of 2 Kings and broke down the roles of Elijah and Elisha and the anointing that came upon each of them as well as the powerful deliverance that was found within their roles as prophets. YES LORD! I sho nuff got delivered and at the end of the message I danced myself into one ole APOSTOLIC Pentecostal COOLJC frenzy (yes COOLJC, I still got it……I might be UPCI in organization but my praise is straight up COOLJC…yall know what I’m talking about). I think I quickened in the Holy Ghost so hard I might have broke my back, neck and the chair I was sitting in. Maaaaaaaaaaaaa Shaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! David Hollis gets an A++++++++ for his preaching style (and I noticed he was clean shaven for Jesus, so we should be able to get him to preach at a UPCI function and he wont be out of order with the facial hair and all lol lol lol). What stuck out the most in his sermon towards the end, David Hollis let them have it in regards to Apostolic Identity! He told the congregation that he could not tell the difference between the PAW saints and the worldly non Christians that were across the hall celebrating their false god Isis (yes, there was a Daughters of Isis Convention going on at the same time and I too share in his sentiments. I had no clue who was who). He said that this current generation claims they are doing things in modesty but the things that we call modest of today’s generation will be done in EXCESS in the next generations to come. Holiness is still right and its NOT old school to look the part. I am glad someone told them that, because I promise you, if it was not for the jean skirts, I would have thought I was at a Baptist or Presbyterian convention with all the make up and jewelry and short pants and earrings both men and women were wearing at the convention. Inward and outward holiness starts at home and I guess if their Pastor is no longer preaching it, this is what happens. You’ll end up looking like the daughters of Isis Convention and go straight to hell for serving that false god (yes I said it….to hell all the daughters of Isis will go if they don’t stop serving their false god and turn to the one true God who’s name is Lord Jesus Christ). Isis and the gang, as long as there is life there is hope, so you don’t have to serve Isis and go to hell, you can serve the one true God Jesus and have eternal life.)

With that said, these are just my candid views and experience of the PAW convention. 38 souls were baptised in Jesus Name and 28 souls got the Holy Ghost of which an entire family of either 7 or 10 got the Holy Ghost all at the same time. Tell the Lord Thank Ya! God is still pouring out His Spirit amongst all flesh and for that I am truly grateful that there are New Born Souls within the Body Of Christ. That’s what matters the most.
