The Nothing to Lose Crusade
It was an unforgettable night for the people in Houston, Texas. Bishop Macedo, a worldwide evangelist, spoke the truth that many have been avoiding to hear: emotional faith. Bishop based his message on the Bible verse Romans 8:9, “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.” Bishop mentioned that flesh means feelings, emotions, and the heart. The Spirit means mind and intelligence. He also emphasized that the problem with people is that they relate faith with emotions. “These feelings cannot resolve your problems.” said the Bishop.
When someone does not have the Holy Spirit, he does not belong to God. This is the cause of depression. “When you have the Spirit of God, you cannot have the spirit of depression.” – Bishop Macedo
The bishop prayed for those who want to be free from their emotions and also for them to receive the Holy Spirit.
Bishop Macedo mentioned something important. He told the people that in this prayer they have to let go of the grudges and forgive those people they have something against. “When you forgive you don’t have to feel good about this person because your heart is a deceiver but God has given us intelligence.” Forgiveness is a decision.
The meeting was an eye-opener for those who have been deceived by their emotions. It was a revival for many.
