coming to the knowledge of the TRUTH


Image result for nativity scene



Well, from all of us at ACTS 29 TODAY (that would be me) I just want to share a few things about this season, and I would invite you to do your own research if you want to find out the truth about it.


There are of course many obvious things associated with Christmas that are not true, like the date of Jesus birth, the 3 or how many wise men there really were… were not present at His birth.


But more important than these obvious things is the truth that The Christmas that is celebrated today, as with a large degree of Christianity itself is from PAGAN ROOTS.


Just do your research, and you will trace it all the way back to Nimrod who built the tower of babel, and Constantine added Christianity into the mix of what was originally the worship of the sun god on the equinox December 25th.

After all of my research on this subject, I can no longer say JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON….BECAUSE

The early Church would have never ever taken part in a pagan worship of the Sun day (ever wonder where sun-day came from) December 25th.


So please do your research about these things as it is of utmost importance, you can start by watching a 3 part series on youtube called WHAT YOUR PASTOR NEVER TOLD YOU ABOUT CHRISTMAS


Next you can read the book PAGAN CHRISTIANITY just google it, between just these 2 sources of history you will absolutely see how, and why, we have gotten to where we are today.


Now sad to say, most people will not read the book or listen to the series on youtube, but hopefully the people who read these blogs are not in that crowd and really want to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Yes I am extremely thankful for the birth of Christ, whatever day that was, and I am thankful for that EVERYDAY AS WELL.

Do your due diligence, stop following the crowd like lemmings going over the cliff.

coming to the knowledge of the TRUTH


Image result for 3 hours




(by Dave Roberson)


From time to time I have been asked what I consider to

be the most powerful way for a person to spend three

or four hours in the Presence of God if that’s all the

time he has to do so in a given week. After many years

of praying and waiting on God, my answer boils down to

these three basic things:

1.Worship and praise(which supplies the sustaining

power needed for the duration of our trials, trading our

weaknesses for Christ’s strength)

2. Confession of God’s Word(speaking to the

“mountains” in our lives that need to be removed


3. Praying in tongues(the supernatural language that

or pain, finances or torment, worry or fear, etc.) not

only edifies but supplies revelation knowledge)

You see, it isn’t the general messages that you hear a

minister preach for an hour each week that will change

your life. The anointed teacher or pastor can only

supply some of the information required for needed



But the real change comes when in the privacy of your

own home, you apply the Word to the problems you are

facing. Your life is transformed in direct proportion to

the private time you spend praying in the Spirit and in

confession of the Word and worship.

Now, it’s important to understand that the guidelines

I’m about to give you for spending time with God are

just that — guidelines. They are not a set formula that

you must follow to the letter in order to enjoy

fellowship with the Father.

Image result for the formula

Just follow the leading of the Holy Spirit as you develop

these three areas in your walk with God. As you do, you

will enjoy a new dimension of answered prayer and a

strong, continual awareness of God’s Presence.



The First Hour: Worship



The first hour I would enter God’s Presence in worship,

praise, and thanksgiving. I’d say,“Here I am, Father. I

don’t have any needs to present, because all of my

needs were met at the Cross two thousand years ago.

I’m just here to fellowship with You because You’re my

Father and I’m your child. I’m going to ascend on Your

holy hill and see how high I can go praising and

worshiping You.” My goal is to develop a relationship

with God based on fellowship instead of need.


Too many times believers enter into God’s Presence

only when they are instructed to do so in church or

when they need something. But one of the highest

forms of worship is to enter into His Presence in our

private lives to praise and worship Him as our

Heavenly Father simply because our name is written in

the Lamb’s Book of Life.

God is exceedingly glad that we are His children and

that He is our Father. And as a Father who enjoys His

children, He wants to spend time with us fellow

shipping around His throne. He likes it when we lift up

holy hands and tell Him just how much we love Him in

pure fellowship.

So how do we enter the Presence of God? Well, the Holy

Spirit was sent to glorify Jesus(John 16:14). His entire

ministry is to bring you into Jesus’ Presence. Then Jesus

in turn brings you into the Presence of the Father. And

the same principles Jesus taught His disciples about

entering into the Father’s Presence applies to entering

the Presence of Jesus.

Jesus said, “When you pray, say, …Our Father which art

in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name(Matt. 6:9). That word

“hallowed” means to sanctify His Name in our lives,

raising it high above everything else. It means to enter

His Presence with reverent worship.

Hypothetically speaking, we are always in God’s

Presence. We have Jesus’ Name. We can petition God at

any moment of the day.

But when we have time to enter the Presence of God

with protocol, then let me tell you right now, there is a

way that pleases Him.

First of all, there is a way to offer myself to God in

private worship. The first part of me I should offer up

before Him is my soul — my intellect, my will, and my


Image result for my soul

I may not feel like offering up my soul to God. No one

may be leading me to do so. A band doesn’t follow me

around, creating an atmosphere for worship. I don’t

always have a cassette or a compact disc available to

play worship music for me. But when I enter into God’s

Presence offering my soul, I almost always end up

worshiping Him in spirit.

Secondly, when I come before Him, I am to show Him

respect. An ambassador will show honor to an earthly

king by bowing before him and offering him gifts. How

much more should I show respect as I enter the

Presence of the King of Kings with the offering of my


Sometimes we forget whose Presence we are entering

into. Yes, Jesus is our best Friend.Yes, He is our

Confidant. But when we approach Him with a petition

or with worship, He is our High Priest, and He deserves

our highest honor and respect.

For that very reason, it is highly important that we do

not let our soul wander off down the street to solve

some problem when it is supposed to be worshiping the

King of Kings. If we want our soul to be blessed by the

King, then we must keep our soul in the Presence of the

King. To do otherwise would be highly disrespectful, to

say the least.



The Second Hour:



Confession of God’s Word Then I would spend my

second hour with the Lord reconciling the problem I’m

currently facing to the Cross. How? By replacing with

the words of my mouth the image of the problem that

the devil sends my way with the image that is in the

Word. That is my inheritance and my right as a



As I entered the second hour, I’d say, “Father, I thank

You that devils are subject to me. I thank You that

disease, which is caused directly or indirectly by devils,

is subject to me in Your Name. I thank You that I have

been delivered from poverty and that it is also subject

tome in Your Name. I thank You for all these things,


“Now if You will excuse me, Father, the devil is

invading my territory. So I’m going to use the faith and

the Word You have given me to meet that invasion

head-on with the power of confession.

“You said that if I do not doubt Your Word with my

heart and if I confess it with my mouth,the same

incredible power that wrought the most phenomenal

miracle of all, the rebirth, will also operate to remove

my mountain.

”So I would spend the next hour hurling the confession

of God’s Word directly at my problem. I’d talk to that

mountain in my life the same way Jesus talked to the fig

tree in Mark 11:14.

For example, if I was dealing with financial lack, I’d

confess something like this over and over: “Poverty, you

have been reconciled to the Cross. Jesus Himself has

borne my poverty by an act of grace. Though He was

rich, for my sake He became poor that I through His

poverty might be made rich [2 Cor. 8:9].

“Do you hear me, poverty? I have a covenant with God.

You cannot stay in my life. You are cursed. You are

leaving my life!

“And, prosperity, I call you in from the north, the south,

the east, and the west! Finances,I command you to

increase! I am enforcing my rights as a believer by a

gift God has given me— the confession of faith in His

Word!” For that entire second hour, that’s how I would

talk to that mountain of poverty, cursing it and

commanding it to move out of my life.

I’ve had the time of my life just picking on the devil,

doing exactly what I’ve just described. I don’t think

anything makes him more upset!

Now, someone may say, “I can understand worshiping

God for an hour, but isn’t confessing the same thing

over and over to your problem a form of begging?” No,

it isn’t. You are begging God when you ask Him again

and again for something He has already provided, such

as healing or deliverance from an addiction that has

kept you in bondage.

Image result for begging

Confessing the Word of God is using the faith God has

already put in your heart to enforce what He has

already said about your problem. Once we have prayed

the prayer of faith over the problem, we are not to talk

to God about the problem — we are to talk to the

problem about God!




The Third Hour: Praying in Tongues



Finally, as I entered the third hour I’d say, “Well,

Father, I have reconciled that problem to the Cross. I

have aggressively wielded the sword of the Spirit, the

Word of God, this last hour and have changed a few

things in the Spirit. I thank You that I have received my



“But now will You excuse me, Father? I need a little

edification, a little strengthening of my spirit man, a

little praying out of the mysteries of Christ.” Then I’d

spend that third hour praying in tongues. I’d just lie

down, sit down, or walk back and forth, building myself

up on my most holy faith as I prayed in the Holy Ghost.


When you do that, many times you will start feeling so

edified that you won’t want to quit!You’ll say, “I think I

will tag another hour of praying in tongues onto this


You see, I have found something I can do during that

third hour on purpose, just because I want to, that

carries a promise from God to edify the part of me in

which I’m not supposed to doubt — my heart.

What am I saying as I pray? Most of the time I don’t

know because my understanding is unfruitful. But I do

know that my spirit is communicating divine secrets

and mysteries before the Father and that I am building

myself up on my most holy faith in my inner man, or

my heart.

So if I had only one three-hour time period that I could

spend with the Lord during a week,that would be the

way I would spend it. If for some reason I only had one

hour that I could spend in prayer that week, I would

break it into three segments of twenty minutes apiece

for worship, confession, and praying in tongues. All

three kinds of prayer are designed to benefit you and to

make you receptive to the finished work of the Cross.

Edification Doesn’t Spell Feelings


A lot of times, people look for feelings when they pray

in tongues. That’s why I pin people to a chair during

corporate prayer — to help them get beyond looking for


Image result for sitting in a chair

“Do you ever feel anything when you pray in tongues,

Brother Roberson?” Oh, yes, don’t get me wrong. I

welcome the emotions when they come. Once in a while

something will build and build and build in my spirit

until it is finally delivered to my soul, and then my

emotions go,“Wow!” But I don’t judge whether I’m

receiving anything based on what I feel. I just keep

praying in tongues, believing the Word that says I am

edifying myself.


You see, tongues originate in your spirit by the power of

the Holy Spirit. Emotions are added when the tongues

pass through your soul. That’s why whether you shout

or whisper in tongues doesn’t make a lick of difference

to the outcome of your prayer if you’re the one who

added the emotions.

In my early days of praying in the Holy Ghost, I thought

that maybe I wasn’t praying effectively if I didn’t feel a

tingling in my fingers or rise to a certain state of

emotional “high.” Then I went through a period of time

when every time I prayed in tongues, an emotional war

would wage on the inside of me. I almost quit praying

because I thought Heaven had been closed against me. I

was judging whether or not I was getting through to

Heaven on the emotions I was or was not experiencing

in prayer.

Image result for happy face sad face

Now I know that edification doesn’t spell feelings.

Praying in the Holy Ghost is a step deeper than our

emotions. Emotions belong to our soulish realm, but

power and edification belong to the spiritual realm.


The Holy Ghost even leaves our intellect out of praying

in tongues. That’s a big blow to our carnal pride! We

may pray three hours in the Holy Ghost without God

ever letting us in on what we were praying about!


For example, one time I had a vision of Old Mexico, and

I prayed and prayed in the Spirit,trying to find out

when that vision would come to pass. I badgered God

about it, asking Him why He wouldn’t show me more of

the coming revival I had seen in the vision. “Please

show me what meeting it was that I saw,” I prayed.

“Show me what I have to do.”

Finally, the Lord interrupted me one morning in prayer

and said, “If I tell you in English what I have planned

for you, you will just mess it up!” He was right, because

later when I found out what it would cost to fulfill what

He wanted me to do in Mexico, I needed a lot of extra

edification just to handle it!

So praying in tongues is deeper than your emotional

realm. It comes from your spirit — the foundation upon

which your life rests, the part of you that the Holy

Ghost was sent to nourish, teach, and edify.

That may not mean you’ll always enjoy wonderful

emotions. But edification is the necessary process by

which you are transformed to the Word you have heard

— the Word that sets the standard in your life.



The Role of Worship _______________________________________________

So edification doesn’t necessarily include my emotions.

If I want feelings, I worship,because that is designed to

bring the godly emotions I need for fortification to my

soulish realm.

You can’t do anything better in the midst of a trial than

to worship. Worship sustains you,stabilizing your

emotions to go through the trial victoriously.

Image result for worshipping

However, you don’t want to just be sustained through a

problem; you want to go further in God and be set free

from it. That is the job of the Holy Ghost, and that is

where praying in tongues comes in, because all

permanent change comes from within.

That’s why James said you are to count it all joy when

you fall into temptations, testings,and trials. Rejoice in

the midst of your afflictions, your infirmities, your

perplexities. Just count it all joy. As you turn all of your

attention to God, releasing your emotions in

admiration and worship of your Father, that joy will

stabilize your soulish realm, which is the part of you

the devil likes to operate against.
