You Have a Word, Meditations By Apostle John Dean

I said, “Lord, I know You have given me a ‘prophetic word’ for this church and You know that You have given me a ‘prophetic word’ for this church, but they do not know that You have given me a ‘prophetic word’ for them. However, I will make myself available by going in and waiting for You to tell the pastor.”

Run And Do Not Be Weary, Meditations By Apostle John Dean

Any true father or mother looks forward to doing all these things and even more for their family if they have the time and energy. However, how can one “run and not be weary” while attempting to do all of the necessary things required in a family these days?






Keeping Your Promises, Meditations By Apostle John Dean

While sitting in my office that day I learned two very important lessons. The first lesson was that God never forgets any promise you have made to Him and He will even help you fulfill it. The second lesson is that we are limited as to how far we can go in life if we do not keep our word to God and to man.






Johnny

One Sunday morning I sent our ministry helpers downtown to pick up a van load of drunks and street people for the morning service. After a while the back door of the church opened and my helpers were dragging a drunken bleeding man into the building. The man’s name was Johnny. He was the third generation in his family who slept under a bridge in Houston. The reason Johnny was bleeding and crying was because when he saw the mission van coming to pick up people, he fell on his face in the middle of the street as he tried to run away. His face looked as if it had been run through a meat grinder, and his nose was badly broken. He was in such pain that he was weeping out loud.






How Do You Eat Your Corn?, Meditations By Apostle John Dean

A few months ago, after preaching the Sunday morning message in a small East Texas church…I went to a home for lunch with some of my dear friends. Everyone in that family is a master cook, so you can imagine how the table was filled with all of those country delicacies. Even though the table was large, the extended family was even larger and more so with my family joining in.
