Greetings all! I was reading a newsletter from a Frontline Missions and came across the transcript of a message by Pastor Marcos - one of the pastors in Brazil. It was so simple, yet powerful, I wanted to share it with you. Below is the message...proverbs from the heart of someone who loves Jesus!

Message from Pastor Marcos at Leader Training Congress in Agua Fria, Brazil
I don’t have a Bible, but the Word of God is written upon my heart. So I am opening up my heart so I can speak the Word of God to you.
We are here for one reason-to worship and adore the Lord Jesus Christ. You brought Him here for He is with you, so let us adore Him.
We are called to take His message to the ends of the earth. We are all worshipping the Lord in many different ways. We are all correct – this brings Him joy.
If you seek the Lord, you will find Him
The Lord is returning to receive a spotless church and if your life isn’t right – correct it today.
As sure as the sun rises Jesus will return, so let’s take every opportunity to share with others.
Jesus Christ has all power on earth, in heaven and under the sea. He has all power everywhere.
This morning we all had partridge. If you want pork or beef you would have to go somewhere else. In the same way there is only one way to eternal life. Through Jesus Christ. Only one way!
You can not destroy the devil with a knife or stones, but you can destroy him with the Word of God. Study the Word of God, arm yourself with the Word of God. If you don’t fill your heart with the Word of God the devil will take advantage of you. You will fall if the Word of God is not in your heart.
Noah is our example and Jesus is our ark for our protection. The animals entered the ark male and female, husband and wife. Not man to man or woman to woman. He created us as male and female. Travel in Jesus’ boat. In Jesus’ boat is eternal life.
Don’t allow the enemy to plant sin in your life or rule over you. Like this plant when it is small it is easy to root it out but once it grows big it is very difficult. So sin is the same. Don’t allow sin to grow but turn to Jesus Christ because He has the power to root sin out of our life.
Let the Word of God grow in your heart. Jesus Christ’s word must be allowed to grow so sin cannot grow and then take His Word to others so sin cannot grow in their lives. Study the word of God so you can carry it back to others. The devil is like a jaguar that is seeking our cattle to kill them and carry them off. Likewise the devil is wanting to kill our brothers and sisters. He is a liar and a thief and a murderer.
When I’m in my village I never see the other tribes but I have been praying for you. Now I get to see you and it is good and I am glad. Now I will continue to pray for you for I am glad to see you have the Word of God.
If you are asleep and a song comes to you, get up and sing it. Likewise if you have a bad dream, rebuke it for the devil tempted Jesus and Jesus defeated him by using the Word of God. You can do the same. Use the Word of God to defeat the devil.
We are not better than anyone else. In Jesus we are equal. None better than others, but in Jesus we are all one.
The devil is at work today but Jesus Christ came to give you life eternal. The devil wanted to be all powerful but only Jesus Christ is all powerful. Serve Jesus Christ.
The Father and Jesus Christ created you. They gave you a mouth to speak the Word of God. Eyes to see His creation and read His words.
Jesus has given us the victory! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
