AND YOU KNOW, AND PAUL SAID YOU NEED TO GET SOME STRENGTH SO YOU’LL BE ABLE TO SWIM OR PADDLE. >> LORI EVANS: BUT You are familiar with, AND THEN HE SAYS THEY BRING MORE FIREWOOD IN FOR THE FIRE, AND THESE PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW PAUL. THE PEOPLE ARE WATCHING PAUL AND HIS CREW.AND HE HAS A BUNDLE OF FIREWOOD, AND THEN A SNAKE BITES HIS HAND AND THEY CALL IT A VIPER, AND YOU KNOW AND THEN HE SHAKES OFF OF THE SNAKE, AND HE SHAKES IT BACK INTO THE FIRE. EVERYBODY IS WATCHING HIM. >> ROBERT EVANS: AND THIS IS THE MOST POISONOUS SNAKE, THE VIPER THAT HAD GRABBED ONTO PAUL’S HAND, AND YOU KNOW SOMETIMES YOU WOULD DIE RIGHT AWAY BUT YOU KNOW YOU WOULD SWELL UP AND YOU KNOW YOUR SKIN WOULD CHANGE COLOR BECAUSE OF THE POISONS YOU WOULD HAVE MANY ISSUES AND THERE WONDERING WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO HIM AND WHAT HE DOES, THE LORD SAYS DO NOT WORRY. AND WHY WOULD HE WORRY ABOUT THE SNAKE? AND YOU KNOW HE’D SIMPLY’S DOES NOT SHAKE IT OFF INTO THE WORD BUT HE DESTROYS IT, AND YOU KNOW, HE THROWS IT BACK INTO THE FIRE.AND THEN IT CANNOT HURT ANYBODY ELSE. I LOVE THE IDEA. AND SOMETIMES WE SEE THESE THINGS IN THE BIBLE, YOU SKIM OVER IT BUT PAUL AND HE NOT ONLY REPELLED THE SNAKE BUT HE THREW IT BACK INTO THE FIRE. >> LORI EVANS: AND YOU KNOW HIS FOCUS WOULD BE THE PEOPLE AROUND HIM, AND IF YOU WOULD READ THE BOOK OF ACTS AND IF YOU WOULD READ THE TEACHINGS, AND HIS FOCUS WOULD BE–NUMBER ONE— BRING PEOPLE TO CHRIST AND BRING THEM TO CHRIST, AND YOU KNOW AND HE TELLS HIS TESTIMONY MANY TIMES OF HIS ENCOUNTER WITH CHRIST AND HE REMAINS FOCUSED ON THAT AND I THINK THAT WOULD BE ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I SEE.THE APOSTLE PAUL HE EXPERIENCES SO MUCH DISTRACTION, AND IN THE BOOK OF ACTS AND THERE WAS A WOMAN WHO FOLLOWS HIM AND SHE WANTS TO DISTRACT HIM, TO THROW HIM OFF COURSE, SO MUCH HAPPENED. BUT HE ALWAYS Stood IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD AT PEACE, TO BE STEADFAST. AND YOU KNOW HE WROTE SO MUCH OF THE NEW TESTAMENT. AND YOU KNOW AND THEN THE SCRIPTURE SAYS MY BROTHERS AND MY SISTERS STAND FIRM LET NOTHING MOVE YOU, ALWAYS GIVE YOURSELVES FULLY TO THE WORK OF THE LORD, BECAUSE YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW YOUR LABOR IN THE LORD IS NOT IN VAIN. BUT YOU Recollect ABOUT PAUL HE HAS BEEN STEADFAST, AND HE NEVER WAIVERS, GOD HAS GIVEN HIM A MISSION AND THE CALLING TO DO A SPECIFIC TASK. TO BRING CHRIST OUT TO PEOPLE AND FOR HIS TESTIMONY AND YOU CAN USE YOUR TESTIMONY TO BRING GOD GLORY. AND WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT HE DID NOT A WAIVER, AND HE DID NOT WORRY OR FRET, AND HE KNEW MY PUTTING HIS CARES UPON THE LORD, JESUS LOVED HIM, HE HAD AN EXPERIENCE WITH CHRIST AND THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HAVE THE EXPERIENCE WITH JESUS CHRIST, AND THEN You are familiar with THAT PEOPLE WOULD WATCH YOU, LIKE PEOPLE TO SOLVE THE APOSTLE PAUL, AND THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE WATCHING HIM.NOW HERE THEY WERE, AND THEY KNEW THEY WERE PRISONERS ON THE SHIP AND THEY THOUGHT MAYBE HE WOULD BE A PRISONER BUT WHAT HAPPENED? HE SHAKES IT OFF, THE SNAKE, IT WOULD BE IN THE FIRE AND THEN LATER ON, THEY WOULD BE WATCHING HIM–STILL, THEY ALL GET THE HEALING. >> ROBERT EVANS: AND WE CAN GET TO THAT IN A MOMENT AND WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT AND YOU THINK ANY NATURAL AND YOU KNOW YOU THINK I AM HALF STARVED AND I AM WET, I AM COLD, AND NOW YOU WOULD BE ON YOU KNOW, YOU WOULD BE ON THE DRY LAND, AND THEN YOU HAVE TO GET BITTEN BY A SNAKE, SO YOU WOULD BE THINKING WHAT MORE COULD HAPPEN? AND YOU KNOW HE DOES NOT SCREAM AND YELL, HE SIMPLY SHAKES IT OFF INTO THE FIRE LIKE, “GET OFF OF ME.” >> LORI EVANS: AND WHEN You are familiar with GOD IS WITH YOU THINGS HAPPEN BUT FEAR IS THE OPPOSITE OF FAITH, AND HE NEVER, HE WOULD NEVER OPEN THE DOOR TO FEAR, YOU DON’T HAVE FEAR BUT YOU HAVE POWER AND LOVE AND A SOUND MIND .>> ROBERT EVANS: AND YOU KNOW, THE ISLANDERS LOOK AT HIM AND THEY THINK THIS MAN IS GOD, AND YOU KNOW IF HE COULD SHAKE OFF OF THE VIPER, AND HE MUST BE SOME TYPE OF GOD. BUT PAUL DID NOT APPOINT TO HIMSELF, BUT TO CHRIST. AND SOMEONE IS SICK ON THE ISLAND AND THEN HE PRAYS FOR THE MAN AND THE MAN– HE IS HEALED, AND YOU KNOW HE PRAYED AT FIRST, I Remember IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE REMAINING IN PRAISE AND HE FOCUSED ON THE ONE WHO WAS THE HEALER. AND JESUS IS THE HEALER AND NOW THE APOSTLE PAUL THAT, AND YOU KNOW PAUL SAYS THIS IS NOT ABOUT ME, THE SNAKE IS NOT ABOUT ME BUT ABOUT JESUS WHO IS THE HEALER, AND THEN AFTER YOU SEE THE MAN HEALED, THE BIBLE SAYS FROM THE BOOK OF ACTS 28 THAT THE WHOLE ISLAND, THEY BRING PEOPLE TO PAUL AND EVERYBODY WOULD BE HEALED, EVERYBODY IS HEALED .>> LORI EVANS: GOD Get THE GLORY. >> ROBERT EVANS: THEY WOULD BE ON THE ISLAND FOR THREE MONTHS AND THEN IMAGINE THE TESTIMONY OVER THE FEW MONTHS, BEFORE THEY COULD TAKE ANOTHER SHIP. YOU KNOW HE WOULD ALWAYS GIVE HIS TESTIMONY, AND YOU KNOW HE WILL RELATE EVERYTHING TO THE OLD TESTAMENT AND YOU KNOW, AND HE WOULD SAY GOD SPOKE TO ME, HE IS A LIVING GOD AND HE IS NOT SOME FIGURINE BY THE LIVING GOD, AND HE IS NOT SOME KIND OF IMAGE OF A GOAT.AND SO I IMAGINE THE ISLAND, AND YOU SEE THE MAN SHAKE OFF THE SNAKE, THAT WOULD BE CERTAIN DEATH. AND THEN HE HEALED EVERYBODY ON THE ISLAND BUT HE Utters THE LORD JESUS CHRIST THE CREDIT. AND YOU KNOW, AND I’M SURE MANY PEOPLE CAME TO CHRIST ON THE ISLAND. >> LORI EVANS: AND WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THIS AND PEOPLE TODAY, ALL OF US, “Were having” A TESTIMONY AND GOD HAS DONE SOMETHING FOR YOU, AND IF GOD WOULD BE WORKING ON THINGS FOR YOUR LIFE, AND YOU CAN RECEIVE.AND RECEIVE THE TESTIMONY AND USE YOUR TESTIMONY AND RECEIVED CHRIST AS SAVIOR AND YOU YOUR TESTIMONY TO HONOR CHRIST. ASK FOR YOUR TESTIMONY AND YOU ASK FOR JESUS TO BE YOUR SAVIOR AND YOU SIMPLY RECEIVE HIM IN YOUR HEART, YOU SAID, “JESUS COME INTO MY HEART AND FORGIVE ME THANK YOU THAT YOU DIED UPON THE CROSS FOR ME, YOU DIED AND BLED FOR ME AND YOU WILL COME BACK FOR ME. IN THE NAME OF CHRIST, AMEN. ASK THE LORD TO HELP YOU, AND HE COULD Contribute YOU A TESTIMONY AND THEN SHARE IT WITH OTHER PEOPLE. >> ROBERT EVANS: AND YOU KNOW IT WOULD BE LIKE– YOU KNOW, LIKE SHAKING OFF OF THE VIPER, AND WE ALL GO THROUGH STORMS. AND YOU KNOW PAUL SAYS HAVE FAITH.THANK YOU FOR JOINING US TODAY WITH THE, “MOVE MORE CHALLENGE.” WE LIKE TO GIVE YOU THE SCRIPTURE THAT YOU WOULD PROSPER AND BE IN GOOD HEALTH AS YOUR SOUL WOULD PROSPER . .
