Convocation 4th Day Teaching

Archbishop Loren Thomas Hines 4th Day of Convocation Mass July 28, 2017 Today’s readings deal with the circumstances we face in life. Proverbs 28 says, the ungodly man flees, but the righteous man is confident as a lion. We stand firm and God provides the answer. In the gospel of Mark, Jesus ministers to the people on the other side. He ministers to them in the wilderness, not inside a temple or a synagogue. This shows us that Jesus went to where the people were. This tells us that as the church, we are......

Convocation 3rd Day Teaching

Bishop Rolando Geronimo 3rd Day of Convocation Mass July 27, 2017 Jesus and His disciples were caught in a storm in the middle of the sea. Jesus was in the stern, asleep. The storm didn’t bother Him because He knew that His life was in the hands of the Father. Such was His confidence that He could sleep in the midst of a storm. The disciples, however, still didn’t have the revelation that the Father would keep them safe; so they were afraid and panicked. We know the story. They arrived on the......

Convocation 2nd Day Teaching

Bishop Felicisimo Cordero 2nd Day of Convocation Mass July 26, 2017 The disciples were chosen by Christ to spread the Gospel. The Lord had to prepare them, because they were to lay the foundation. He taught them parables, He demonstrated His power to them in the storm, He explained about the Kingdom in parables. When the seeds were planted, the birds were the “enemies” since they tried eating all the planted seeds. But from the smallest seed, a huge tree comes out where even the birds placed their nests. The people at that time......

Convocation 1st Day Afternoon Session

Archbishop Loren Thomas Hines 1st Day of Convocation, Afternoon Session July 25, 2017 God is a God of order and perfection. He has set everything in order. Genesis 1 shows the order of God. From the very beginning, He set the exact timing of all that He would create and provided a system whereby the first to be created would support the next. He created space, matter and spirituality or divinity. God didn’t create man without first putting in place a support system to take care of man’s needs so that he will......

Convocation 1st Day Morning Session

Archbishop Loren Thomas Hines 1st Day of Convocation, Morning Session July 25, 2017 One of the weaknesses of the church today is that we don’t really take the time to understand God. Sometimes we think that things “just happen,” not realizing that God has a plan. Prior to creation, even before the foundation of the world, everything was planned by God. It is unfortunate that we do not care about the past. In many schools today, history books have been changed. If we do not know the past, we will not know the future,......

Receiving The Fullness of The Holy Spirit

“Receiving The Fullness of The Holy Spirit” Archbishop Loren Thomas Hines The Holy Spirit Seminar, Part 2 June 11, 2017 God is creating a new people of God. The first man created by God was given the responsibility to control the earth, to cultivate it, to subdue and reign over all creation. Adam failed so Christ came to restore the place of man in the kingdom of God. I believe that God sent the Holy Spirit because He doesn’t want a repeat of what happened with the fall of Adam. He doesn’t......

Empowered By The Holy Spirit

“Empowered By The Holy Spirit” Archbishop Loren Thomas Hines Holy Spirit Seminar, Part 1 June 4, 2017 I came from a family of religious people. My grandfather was a circuit riding minister and he and my grandmother lived in a wagon, traveling from place to place in crusades. I probably didn’t have a choice of what I’d become because my grandfather and uncle were involved in ministry. My uncle was the last surviving signatory of the by-laws of the Assemblies of God. The basis of our lives was Pentecostal. I was raised......
