Sometimes I HaveTo Stop Thinking

Life can be complicated.  Can I get an AMEN?  People often ask me why I stay so busy, and when I give them my answer, some of my friends do not seem to understand.  I do understand why they do not understand, because I have been there and done that.  When I am not busy in the work Of God, I tend to think too much.

The mind can drive us nuts if we will allow it to just keep thinking.  In fact, while I am thinking of the things that I may decide to write on this blog, so many thoughts are coming at me, I am not sure that I really want to complete this.  It all started with one little thought, and then that thought found a friend that had more friends.  They all came running and brought their friends and friends of friends of friends etc etc etc also invited themselves into my brain.  I did not invite them, but they are here, and all of them are trying to tell me what to write.  So I am just going to do what I know to do right now.   Hold on just a sec... HEY THOUGHTS...  IN THE NAME OF JESUS GET OUT OF MY HEAD RIGHT NOW!!!  Whew!  I feel better now.

Now that the power of the name of Jesus took care of all that nonsense, I want to write some words here that were in my heart when I started writing.  I praise the Lord that it is possible to have the mind of Christ that knows how to do what we cannot do.

When I told those thoughts to go in the name of Jesus, the mind of Christ had been there all the time, but the noise of the crowd was so strong that the still small voice that I depend on could not be heard.

Many years ago I invited this wonderful counselor to come into my life and take charge of anything that tends to distract or confuse me since I had decided to give my life to Jesus and look to him to be my answer for every problem or difficult situation in life.  There had been so many ways to consider before this happened.  I do not know how the thought of giving myself to Jesus was able to find a place in my brain.  A gentle thought softly and tenderly caught my attention and started providing some hope when I did not know which way to turn or what to do.  In the midst of all the noise of strong thoughts shouting, ."... GO THIS WAY, DO THIS, DO THAT, TRY THIS OVER HERE, GO THAT WAY... and on and on and on..."  Suddenly, one small voice was heard. It was not an audible voice, but it was a comforting thought that somehow caught my attention.

When I recall that moment I sometimes  cry with a thankful heart.  If I had not listened to this voice that brought answers and solutions into my life, I most likely would be lost and confused today.

As I read the teachings of Jesus in the Bible, I often see the words, "Think not...Take no thought..."  It is very difficult to stop thinking. Have you every tried to stop thinking?  Jesus made the brain and created the thought process, and I suppose only Jesus has the ability to stop our thoughts.  Sometimes we just have to ask for help from the one that really can help and trust Jesus to know what to do when we are trying to think of what to do in our difficult moments.

We are instructed to put on the mind of Christ.  How can we do that?  Have you ever tried to think with the mind of the mighty God.  This is impossible for any human being, but with Jesus, all things are possible.

When we have the mind of Christ, we do not have to think about how to make things work.  We do not have to reason or question why or why not his way is always the right way.  If we return to allowing our normal thought process to have it's way, we may get of track and find ourselves all tangled up again in the issues of life that cannot be figured out or resolved by our way of thinking.  We are very limited in our ability to fix human errors and problems.  Jesus always knows what to do, and he wants us to look to him with faith.  Jesus wants us to be still and know that he is God.  The Lord wants us to stand and see the salvation of God.  

When people come to me with problems after I have taught them and preached to them for years, I only know one thing to do.  Let Jesus take over.  I learned years ago that I am not a counselor.  I tried it a few times, and before long, I needed somebody to counsel me.  Any answer I think of that does not point them to Jesus is the wrong answer.  

If you are struggling today with difficult things going on in your life, please consider in the midst of all your thoughts this fact... Jesus is available for you, and he is willing to take charge if you desire his help and replace your thoughts with his thoughts and your understanding with his understanding, and your wisdom with his wisdom.

After having done all we know to do, we always learn (sometimes the hard way) that Jesus is the answer.  

When you finish reading this blog, if you find yourself thinking that you have to give this a lot of thought, PLEASE READ IT AGAIN! :)

God loves you, and so do I.  Even if I do not know who, where or what you are, I love you.  You may ask, How can you love me when you don't even know me?  Please do not ask me that question. I may have to think about it, and then I will have to stand up and rebuke my thoughts.  

Try reading words in the bible, and try checking out some of my various video clips on Youtube and Vimeo.  Get involved in discussions with Jesus Name Holy Spirit filled people, and feel free to become my friend on facebook, or follow me on twitter. Join me on linked in, or find me on Google Plus.  No matter what you think, I am determined to point all of my friends toward the one that can solve all the problems and resolve every issue that pops into the human brain.  

Why did I write this blog?  I never thought about that.

I am ending this blog right now. :)

Sometimes I have to stop thinking.

Are you feeling sad, drained emotionally, almost depressed, nervous, defeated, afraid, or disappointed?

Please consider getting involved in winning the lost to Jesus.  We are looking for people all over this world who are baptized in the name of Jesus and filled with the Holy Ghost and have a love for people.  We have a growing team of HolyGhost filled people and we are looking for you.  We have plans for anybody and everybody who enjoys working with your mobile phones and computers on the internet. 

Please pray and allow the Lord Jesus to touch your heart.  God is calling for a people today in this world where knowledge has increased and people are looking away from the hope that is still in the name of Jesus. 

We are looking to raise up a very large army of people working in harmony and fellowship all over this world.  If you are reading these words right now, God is probably calling you to service for the king.

You can stay where you are, and minister all over the world.  Something big is about to happen, and God is calling for workers in the field which is the entire world.

Please go to the bottom of this page and write in the comment section a note to Ren Rutledge and also be sure to subscribe for the updates.  A new World network of ministries on a mission from God is rising up to win the lost in today's world.   Can you get excited with me and pray about it?  I know that God has an army out there ready and willing to go to the battlefield for the King of Kings.

Many people today are living in sin while believing that they are saved and on their way to Heaven.  It would be impossible to be saved while denying the name of Jesus in baptism and giving honor to a three person god.

 LISTEN TO REN RUTLEDGE GLOBAL RADIO

When Jesus died on the Cross, all creation stood at attention.  This was the moment of fulfillment for all generations past, present and future on this planet.  All the sacrifices of generations past, and all prayers that had n prayed or would ever come forth in the future would meet at the cross as God once again would speak life and new beginnings into the face of the deep . Once again light would come forth. and those that sat in darkness would be able to see this great  light. The supreme offering of the Almighty God for all mankind was hanging on that cross providing hope and solutions for all who would believe and accept this gift of God for mankind.

We find ourselves almost two thousand years after this mighty event rejoicing in the knowledge that everything we need for success in life and for eternal happiness is available as a result of Jesus hanging there. God made it possible for anybody anywhere at any moment to be able to enjoy the happiness that can result from the creative power of the everlasting Father who created man from the dust of the earth.  God knows that we are made of dust, and he still has the power to breath life into the dust regardless of how much dirt is in our lives.

A great and mighty door was opened up to us as the mighty God invited all creatures to experience the joy of accepting God's invitation for all to come to Jesus and experience the creation power of God.  This door can only be opened by the eternal God, and no other creature has the power to shut this door as long as God wants it opened.  When God shuts the door, nobody will ever be able to open it again.  

We have an opportunity right now at this very moment to enjoy the blessings that are available on the other side of that open door.  The Almighty King of Kings has invited all of us sinful human beings to walk right up to that door and allow God himself to wipe away our tears, disappointments and shame.  He knows that we have sinned, and he is against the problem that caused it.  God is not your enemy, and he wants to be your friend no matter how you have lived, because he can fix anything for anybody at any time.  God hates sin, but he love the sinner, and thus the cross was provided to help us to get sin out of our lives.

The effect of the blood on that cross is so powerful that God sees us as his own children once we have embraced his plan of redemption.  God made it possible for a sinner to become a saint when Jesus was hanging on that cross.  The blood that spilled from his body streaming down the wood underneath his feet provided healing and cleansing for every soul that would call upon the name of the Lord.  There is power in the name of Jesus, and that power when spoken from the heart of a believer who is willing to obey the Lord's plan of Salvation is the most amazing grace we can ever know. 

The grace and mercy provided at the cross has made it possible for us be happy and victorious in this present world regardless of any  pain or disappointment we may experience along the way.  As long as we are mortal on this planet we will have sickness and pain, and sometimes things will not be comfortable in our lives, but the gift of God that has been provided makes it all worthwhile.  Jesus endured the suffering and death on the cross, so that we could have strength to endure the problems of life and find happiness along the way as we follow his example of forgiving others on our way to abundant  life forever beyond the grave.

God has promised eternal joy and happiness to all who will humble ourselves under his mighty hand and accept his invitation.  This is all made possible as a result of the wisdom and mercy of a caring creator who loves you more than anybody could ever love you. The almighty God provided salvation and endured the cross despising the shame for the joy that was set before him.  You can cause that joy to spring forth as soon as you finish reading this blog. You have the power in your hand right now to cause rejoicing in the presence of angels to break forth so powerful that all creation will take notice and celebrate your decision as soon as you are willing to come to repentance and accept the gift that is waiting for you as a result of what happened on that cross.

A couple of weeks ago I was beginning to get ready for Sunday services at our Church, and there were many things on my mind.  A friend had called on my telephone and left a short message that really blessed me.  

Trying to pastor people can be wonderful when everybody is happy and trying to live a good Christian life, but it is not always peaches and cream, if you know what I mean.

We had just passed through several weeks filled with great blessings in the services, and we found ourselves reaching out for souls in the community.  It does not take a lot of effort to get people to come to Church when you have been blessed and filled with a desire to please God more.   People are hungry for somebody to care about them,, and when a child of God will sincerely show kindness and make a little effort to help them to move forward toward hope, they will at least visit the Church when they are invited in most cases.

When new people start showing up, they bring many problems with them.  Each new soul is a challenge, because they have a very small amount of understanding about what is going on in our services.  These new people have not been present through the years to hear the good preaching and teaching coming across the pulpit resulting in our great victory for those that were here, nor have they experienced the joy of knowing Jesus, and they sometimes find themselves not being able to relate to the testimonies or the preaching. They do not know what we are talking about when we are shouting praises about the Holy Ghost and baptism in the name of Jesus.  Most of them seem to think they are already saved, and they know more about how we should conduct our services than we do.

As the members of the Church gather their families up to head home after Church, the new sinners that just came to visit find themselves sometimes confused and needing to talk to the pastor.  Sooner or later they make their way to the pastor's office where they talk about how terrible life has been to them.  They have many questions, and sometimes confusion is all they have as a result of visiting the Church.  Many of them need money and they seem to think the Church is there to give them some of that money that was collected in the offering.  Somehow it seems that most of these new souls have come to the conclusion that pastors have nothing to do between services, and they are free to give them undivided attention until the next service.

As I allow myself to become the city dump for the hurting people of the community, I try to give them the only answer that can fix it all for them, but they do not seem to understand that Jesus is real.

That phone call came at a time when I needed to hear the words that were spoken.  A friend in Texas had called and left a message.  Here are the words that were spoken several times.  "Love and joy will conquer all."  Those words were repeated several times.  When I listened to that message something happened to me. Just thinking about love and joy brought me back to the peace I had enjoyed before all the problems of the world had been poured into my life by people I do not know.

Every time i fall in love with Jesus, I experience joy all over again.  All I needed was a reminder, and the  peace that passes all understanding returned.  No matter how many sad things I had listened to during the past few days, the answer for all of those troubled souls was the same answer I needed also.

Today I am feeling happy as I listen to my new friends talk about the problems of life.  I am still being treated like a garbage bag that can hold all the years of junk that needs to be poured out, but somehow I am finding joy as I listen to every soul because the love of God that has blessed me is right here for each one of them also. 

Thank you sister Cathy Shelton, for listening to the Lord and making that phone call.  Your love and your joy helped me to once again find my peace that passes understanding, and your words helped me to renew patience and compassion as I love the souls that are trying to make their way to the kingdom of light and happiness.  With joy I am once again drawing water from the wells of salvation.  The older I get, the more I am learning about the love of our God coming into our hearts and flowing out to others from our hearts. Thank God for joy flowing like a river as deep as the sea.

In the wisdom and all knowing ability of our wonderful Lord,  one child of God 1500 miles away listened to his tender voice and made a telephone call.  She left a message from God, and those wonderful words changed my life again.

Today I am here in my office, and the garbage from last week is gone.  I am waiting for that next phone call and looking forward to the next truck load of junk to come walking through my office door. This office is filled with living water today, and those thirsty souls are coming to get a drink. I love these people, and my heart is shouting "PRAISE THE LORD..." as I draw water from the wells of salvation. Something within me wants to shout today, "WHO'S NEXT...COME ON IN..."   HALLELUJAH!!!

The world has suddenly become small.  Just a few years ago we found ourselves reading fiction books and comics filled with dreams and imaginations of things that did not exist, and now we find that many of those things that were only imagined have become part of our everyday lives. 

A few days ago I was standing in an airport terminal watching people go by.  Just about everybody  was talking to somebody that I could not see.  Some were typing on a small 2 inch wide key pad and sending type written mail to people on the other side of the world.  Just think about it.  Millions of letters are being sent out every second of every day with no postage stamps and no postman to deliver the mail.  We just press SEND and suddenly they are receiving and reading the mail thousands of miles apart. 

Perhaps I am showing my age, but I am finding life to be very interesting and filled with excitement. Children and young teens today arrive in this world with all these gadgets already here.  They grow up knowing how to do things that many of us older ones are having to really work hard to figure out.  How does it make you feel when something goes wrong with your computer, and a third grader comes along and repairs it for you in a matter of seconds?

I could spend many hours writing about awesome things that are now part of our everyday lives that were only thoughts and dreams a short while ago.  

Everything we enjoy in life started out with somebody somewhere looking on things not seen as yet.  Somebody thought about how wonderful it would be if man could ride in a horseless carriage.  Millions and millions of cars and trucks are on the move all around the world today.  Someone thought about how nice it would be to fly.  They started working on the impossible dream, and as a result of not giving up when it all seemed hopeless,  millions of people are above the clouds today flying all over this world all the time.  We only dreamed about space ships and read about them in comic books a few years ago, and now we have flying objects in space discovering things on Mars and looking beyond. Man is taking the impossible dreams and efforts of past generation.  Their hope has given us hope.  Their dreams have inspired us to dream and think of possibilities of what we can do now with what we have learned from those who lived before us.  

About 2000 years ago a small child was found on the streets of Jerusalem.  There was a lot of talk around town about this lad who came into this world with nothing but impossible circumstances in his life.  He was reported to have been born of a virgin, and some folks were finding him to be able to speak to lawyers and doctors on their level when he was just a child.  As he grew a little older he was called on to provide wine at a wedding when there was no wine. This was an impossible situation, but that did not stop this young man from filling the need.  He did it in a way that had never been done before, nor has anybody found a way to do this since that time.  Jesus turned water into wine, and the need was met.

After that time his fame grew, and thousands of people started searching for him.  Some wanted to just get close enough to touch him one time, and as Jesus would come near them blind folks received sight, deaf people started hearing, cripple people started running and leaping.  Dead people lived again.  Some believe, and others doubted the reports about all this man could do.  He walked on the water, fed more than 5000 people with a little child's lunch and had 12 baskets of food left over.  This man was nailed to a cross and died with sinners on a cross.  The history of his life was written before he was born, and after he arrived he demonstrated the very things that had been written about him by people who had lived and died before he was in the world.  He was in the world, and the world was made by him.  That seems a impossible...RIGHT???  He assured his followers that he would rise again after his death.  Many people found that very difficult to believe, and some walked away saying ..."This is going just too far...IMPOSSIBLE!!!  Nevertheless, Jesus kept going forward knowing that a certain type of light that could shine into deep darkness would only come forth if he did his part to make it happen.  The Word of God had been made flesh, and everywhere he went people looked upon him and saw the Spirit of God in demonstration through his deeds and in the words he spoke.  While standing in the midst of several hundred people soon after he had been discovered to be alive again after having been crucified, he started going up.  There were no wings, no jet fuel involved, and there was simple no way, but he did.  

Where am I going with all these words?  I am getting ready to bring this blog to a close as we consider the result of this man called Jesus living on this earth.  He lived, and he died, but he got up and started living again.  He made a promise to those who believe on his name.  He said he would always be with us.  He would give us a comforter and he would never leave us or forsake us.  He also said that we would be able to spend forever with him in a place where there will never be sickness, pain or death.  IMPOSSIBLE?  Perhaps it is impossible, but don't let that stop you.

Jesus has been proven to be able to do the impossible.  All things are possible to those that believe.  You can believe that you can fly resulting in billions of people flying for ages to come.  You can believe that a light bulb can actually be built that will light up and drive away darkness, and it can happen, and things happen as a result of believing even as a result of what has already been done that we have seen with our eyes and handled with our hands.  

Do you believe it is possible that you can have peace of mind, and live a very happy life with all your needs supplied by this same Jesus today  and then live again after you die in a place where Jesus will be there with you forever and ever and ever?  If you think this is impossible, you are right.  So what's new?  Just get in on it.

PLEASE DONATE TO THE CAUSE OF WINNING THE LOST TO THE TRUTH - CLICK HERE

Have you checked out the World Pulpit lately?  This is an expanding internet ministry website filled with treasures of blessings.  Many people in the world today are hurting, and there is a need for positive answers and solutions for millions of souls who never go to Church and most of them have very little understanding about anything to do with Christianity or the the positive answers that have been found by a few of us.  I have been  concerned for many years about the lost multitudes of souls at our fingertips.  Millions are sitting at computers today looking for some kind of answer.  My experience through the years has been disappointing.  It seems that many of my peers tend to find something wrong with anything new that attracts people.    So many of us seemingly forget about the commission of our Lord to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.  

All the creatures are not limited to our local assemblies or organizations.  What has happened to us?  How is it that so many of my friends seem to want to ignore the opportunity set before us with communication possibilities all around us and all over this world?  

Just think about it.  Millions of souls can hear the good news of the Gospel that will set them free from sin simply by clicking on a mouse.  

I spend many hours looking at email and private message responses from all over the world.  Sometimes I am drivin to my knees as I see how God has taken just a little effort and a small amount of my time to change a life somewhere on the other side of the world who never knew that Jesus was real and salvation and healing has been available from the time of their birth until now.

Will you please consider supporting this ministry with your prayers and with money.  We  have been reaching out on the internet and expanding ever since internet became public.  We have witnessed thousands of souls coming to God, and it is happening more than ever today. The financial need is so great and the  call of God is so strong to do this work that I simply cannot put money in a home or save up money for retirement.  Please try to understand.  I am not complaining, and I love the way I live.  All I have to leave my family will be a worn out recliner and perhaps an old car with Arkansas Tags. The main thing my children and grandchildren can enjoy will be the faith and blessings I have found and handed down to them.  It does not get better than that.  Money is something we can use to win the lost while we are alive and able,  That is more important than leaving a will for the next generation.  Let your children get a job and work to earn their own money so they can also learn to invest in the work of God.  Put your money to work now for the more important matters that will please our wonderful Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

My only desire is to be used of God until I face my last days knowing that I did my best for God.  If this is not the way you feel to answer the call in your life it is ok.  One plants, another waters and God gives the increase.  I really don't know where I fit in on this list, but I do know that I am on that list somewhere, and I am so grateful for what God is doing in my life as souls are daily coming out of sin and clinging to the mercy of God that they learn about in this internet ministry.

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO DONATE TO THIS CAUSE OF WINNING THE LOST.

Please consider sending a gift to this ministry.  We are the Apostolic Network with offices in the Norwich Tabernacle in Norwich, Connecticut, USA.  I am Ren Rutledge and I consider my mission in life is to reach out to people with all the tools that are available for people  of all backgrounds and denominations who have received and are teaching wrong information about the godhead and the salvation plan. 

I have personally been used of God to bring many trinity pastors to the Lord during the past 28 years.  Most of those that have seen the light  have gone to the water again to be baptized in the name of Jesus.  Some of these precious pastors had spent years trying to serve God with an incomplete salvation plan,  and they had fallen for a trick of Satan to follow after the false teaching concerning a three person god that does not exist.  They discovered truth on these website provided by the Norwich Tabernacle and the Apostolic Network owned by the Norwich Tabernacle.  It is so wonderful to listen to these enlightened souls as they get excited about the truth they have found in Acts 2:38 after they have been lacking understanding about the godhead and the salvation plan in the Bible for many years.  Some of them have baptized entire congregations in the Name of Jesus in various parts of the world.  Trinity believing title baptizing people are not our enemies, and they need us to show ourselves friendly to them.  Kindness is not compromise.

These new converts had believed on the Lord and sought after truth, but the enemy of their souls tried to prevent them from finding the complete truth that is available and necessary for real salvation .  Sadly, when some of them found people of truth,  several reported that they were treated poorly by Jesus name people who see, to  have good understanding about the mighty God in Christ but seem to lack understanding about how to be kind to others.  I sometimes get very vexed at some of my dearest friends that I have worked with for years in the ministry.  What happens when people get the Holy Ghost and get baptized in Jesus name? Is speaking in tongues and getting baptized in the name of Jesus our ultimate goal?   Is there not a call going forth  from our Lord for all of us to reach out to others?  Did not Jesus commission us to go into all the world and reach out to every creature on earth?

Why do we seek after God, receive his blessings and the gift of understanding only to find ourselves sitting around with nothing to do but attend a couple of Church services a week as some of us argue and fight about issues that are not important? It is easy for us to feel good about having a good service at Church and go home looking forward to the next service.  It is also easy to ignore people who know nothing about this wonderful truth especially when your only concern is for your family and a few friends while you ignore praying and Bible study since you do not seem to need all of that stuff any more.  Some of my friends seem to consider every sinner to be the enemy, especially those from other denominations.  Sinners are not our problem.  The enemy that seems to give me the greatest challenge shows up sometimes in mean spirited people of truth trying to rule over other as they advise us to slow down and stop this nonsense of reaching out on the internet?   I am amazed when I witness such childish actions from some of my closest friends and loved ones who hold positions in organized systems and even pastor large congregations as they seem to manifest that they have no understanding or desire to know about what winning souls is all about. As long as they get the tithes, a nice home to live in and a beautiful new car every two years they seem to be content, and they are to busy going to conferences and camp meetings to spend any time in outreach.  I am sorry, but I do not think God is pleased with this.  Hate me if you wish, but we need to wake up and heed the call from God.  We have not been called to be the LORD and BOSS of a few people while we ignore all the sinners walking past our doors.  I do not believe God is pleased when we consider midweek service and Sunday service as a time to testify only to those who already know the truth and then preach loud and strong to make sure that a few people agree with some private hangup about silly issues that are not necessary or important while the world around us knows nothing about how to get saved.

We need your support at this time more than ever before.  There is so much opportunity, and there are so many people coming to God right now who need us to be here. I am having difficulty finding people with a burden for the lost.   Saving souls requires a lot of patience. A soul coming to God is more than just a number in the crowd that spoke in tongues for a couple of minutes.  Did God save us so we could hear somebody speak in tongues and be counted on a list of people who made an evangelist look good or the conference report to be greater than the report that went out last year?  Have you thought about changing your ways since you have received the Holy Ghost?   Sometimes  we have to change even more after we come to God than we did before we accepted the truth.  Knowing the truth brings great responsibility, and I firmly believe this.  If we do not use what God has given us, we will lose it.  Sometimes we need to be able to do without some physical things in life that make us comfortable.  Those of us on the battlefield working with Jesus to save the lost are finding that you must be willing to leave the comfort zone in order to have success in winning souls.  Sometimes family and friends may  not understand us,  and some of them may tend to not agree with the way we follow the call of God.  No Problem!   Please understand, this will happen, and it is ok.  You do not have to please them all.  There is no way to satisfy every negative minded disgruntled wet blanked dead to faith friend or family member that may try to put out your fire with their sorry attitudes and lack of faith.

Do you have an interest in doing something good for the Lord today?

You can make a difference by making a donation now to this ministry.  I do not receive a salary, and I have been giving all tithes and offerings back to the Church that I pastor in Norwich, Connecticut for 28 years.  God has kept me here doing this work at timeswhen nobody else was there to help, and most people I know express no understanding or desire to help us.  God still continues to back this effort anyhow, and this note is written as a result of prayer.  God has prompted me to write these words on behalf of an angry God who is not impressed with all of our mission programs combined.  Donating to the expense account of headquarters officials and making missionaries beg all year while millions of dollars are drawing interest in bank accounts w is not God's plan. Thank God for sincere souls who find the Lord anyhow in spite of all of our programs and ideas that we think are so great.  Every dollar in savings for missions should be released now and given directly to every soul winning missionary on the field preaching the truth, and every truth teaching Holy Ghost filled missionary should be backed by everybody in every organization and independent work where people have the real truth and the power of God working in their lives.  We should all be praying for them and supporting them all everyday as we help them to stay as long as they can in the place where they are winning the lost to Jesus with no requirement to ever travel again to raise funds in order to be able to return to the field a few months later depending on the approval of a few men who know how to enforce rules but somehow lost their faith and trust in God and started trusting the system instead. 

I am not against anybody, and I am not bitter, but God has not called me to get involved in the politics of organizational battle ship circles filled with division and debate as some have become corrupt claiming to be united while fighting one another year after year over silly issues and demonstrating their goal of finding something wrong with anything they do not understand or agree with.  I continue to love them all,  and I will continue work with them when I have time and feel like enduring their foolishness, but I will not be a partaker of their evil deeds resulting in division or debates or  fighting over issues that are so common with some people who seem to only find joy when they demonstrate the ability to use a position in a system as a reason to be mean spirited to others.  If this shoe does not fit you, please do not try to put it on. :)

I am looking for somebody out there that can feel and see what it is that we are trying to do, and I sincerely believe as I write these words that somebody is going to hear from God and send thousands of dollars to give this outreach ministry a needed boost.  Every month for many years our overhead has been more than 5000.00 per month.   Included in that amount is $1600.00 per month for a store front basement on main street, 1000.00 per month for utilities. thousands per month for leased servers providing the necessary bandwidth and power for us to be able to  reach out to millions with video, audio and many types of internet sites including our own social media sites with thousands of subscribers and internet connections in all countries.  Your help at this time is needed, and we will be very grateful for your offerings during this time when the economy is weak and bills are high.  Hungry souls are paying attention to the truth, and many are calling on us to continue to teach them.  I have more than 20,000 emails right now that need an answer, and we are trying to delegate some of the work to dedicated people of God because this is serious.  Some of the starving people in Africa we are trying to feed each month actually die of starvation between services before we can get funds to them.  We send funds directly to people in charge of helping those who have no food and no good water to drink in poor countries.  We are finding that doors are opened for truth as we reach out in love and compassion to do what we can.   When more funds become available through your donations, we hope to visit some of these poor third world countries where thousands are tuning in to the truth every day and asking us to please come and teach them more about this wonderful plan of Jesus Name Salvation Truth. 

God used internet ministry to connect us with souls in Tartarstan, Russia in 1998.  God sent me and  a small group of friends to minister to the leaders of 35,000 Church members about this precious truth.  We taught them day and night for a solid week about Jesus name baptism and the understanding in the word that was available about the mighty God in Christ.  I had no money to go there, but the call of God provided miracles, and the need was supplied by mostly non truth people who had no knowledge of what we were talking about when we mentioned Acts 2:38.  I was not able to get donations from my Pentecostal friends around the world to take that trip.  When I made the need known, I was ignored and told by some that I must go through the system and get approved.   God spoke to the heart of a Catholic Priest who heard that I felt God calling me to go to Tartarstan to distribute Bibles.  That priest requested after his Sunday morning mass for his members to donate to the cause of the preacher in the little store front Church on main street in Norwich, and help him take Bibles to Tartarstan.  All day long people were handing me money.  Some of them were smoking, and some had the smell of whiskey on their breath, but God used them when Jesus name people holding on to traditions would not respond.  We went to Tartarstan backed by the Almighty God of truth,  supported by non-truth friends and a donation from a wonderful couple in our Church.  I rejoiced as many Russians wept while holding the thousands of Russian Bibles that we delivered to them in Tartarstan.  Thousands of souls had been trying to serve God for many years even in underground Churches while under the forceful demonic rule of the Communist party in the USSR, and they had never even seen a real Bible.  I watched them hold to those new Russian Bibles and weep.  Some of them were on the floor with tears flowing across the pages of their Bibles.  As a result we are hearing reports today of  thousands of people preaching truth not only in Tartarstan, but in many parts of Russia.  It only took $3000 for me to spend that blessed week teaching the truth to those dear people, and only eternity will reveal the treasures of blessings in lives that will be in Heaven forever,as a result of us listening to God rather than man with his efforts to place a cap on the work of faith.

Please consider allowing yourself to be used of God today.  If you will donate to this outreach effort, I know God will bless you just as he is blessing me in more ways that I will ever be able to explain in this lifetime.

If you prefer to use regular mail, please send a check or money order made payable to CHURCH AT NORWICH and mail it to Ren Rutledge - 207 Main Street - Norwich, Connecticut - 06360   I would love to hear from you if you plan to donate.  Please give me a call at anytime day or night. 860-823-1953.  If I am not available please leave a message and be sure to leave your phone number.  I do not have caller ID at that number.

I am not ashamed or afraid to ask you for money today.  The cause is much greater than how anybody feels about it, and frankly I am not paying attention to ungodly pessimistic people holding the truth in unrighteousness who have nothing good to say or do about the cause of winning souls to Jesus.  They can just complain to God, I am too busy to stop and baby sit with them.  Sinners seem to be needing my time and energy more than some who seem to know more about the work of God than the Apostles.

Please let God use you today to make a big difference for souls that you can help right now if you will.

This is a matter of deep concern.  I am calling on the people of God everywhere to join me in prayer for all organizations proclaiming the truth of Jesus name and the Holy Ghost power.  Let us all pray that those who hold important positions in organizations will find the mind of God before rendering harsh treatment and strong judgement toward the workers in the field who are giving their lives for souls in the midst of strong persecution which seems to not only come from the world but sometimes creeps into our systems that we have loved and worked with for the cause of Christ through the years.  Brothers and sister, please allow God to direct those of you who hold positions in these systems, and let us not stand in the way of the called out chosen ones who are out there on the battle field doing exploits for God.  I have seen a lot of abuse and ungodly judgement coming from the powers of elected officials causing hurt and serious pain to dedicated praying people of faith who were giving it all to God.  Those who are holding positions in our systems should never be guilty of hurting others who are answering the call of God and giving an account to the only master they have.  Organization is not the master.  God has never delegated any of our positions in organizations to be another person in the Godhead.  There is only one God, one judge, and one who has the power to be supreme master of those he has called in to the work of the Lord.  The fellowship of the true people of God does not depend on a fellowship card that we subscribe to, but the light that is provided to us is coming directly from Jesus Christ, and when we walk in this light we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus (not the back room meetings of officials) cleanses us from anything that may look or seem wrong.  The job of those elected officials we have trusted to hold positions in our systems is to support and help, not to kill and destroy.  Brothers and sisters please check yourselves, and check those spirits that may be leading you while you perhaps have fallen into the trick of being too busy to pray with a sincere heart.  God has never called his leaders of organized systems to destroy his workers in the field, nor will he bless us if we bow down and worship the system.  We say that we are One God people, and I believe most of us really are one God Jesus name Holy Ghost people.  It seems that a few of our leaders have decided to believe that the organized effort is equal with God.   God has never been pleased with his people worshiping systems or things they have built regardless of how many times they may have shouted with victory.  God will never stand for this, and it should be stopped before God destroys these "most holy"  towers. Any ministry or system that becomes Lord over others is not of God..  Pray that God will fix this in the name of Jesus and change the hearts of those who may have become corrupt in their efforts to rule over the kingdom of God.

It is always a thrill to receive email and telephone calls with reports of people being blessed as they listen to the various preachers on this website delivering the precious Word of the Lord.  Some have testified that they have actually been brought to the truth by ministers on this site who passed from this life years ago, but the message they preached continued to have a powerful and lasting effect today.  We still have thousands of messages to add as we continue to move forward with the open door that no man can shut.  

If you have audio or video tapes from the past that feature outstanding messages, please consider sending them to us so we can preserve the messages for future generations.  The tapes will sooner or later fade away, and if there is no back up for the messages they will be forever gone and nobody will be able ever hear them again.  

Since we know that this site is helping many people, let's continue to support the effort by sending in tapes, making donations and buying the CDs as they are made available.  These preaching CDs have been a mighty blessing for many people around the world.  Each CD features at least 100 Apostolic messages in mp3 format.  That amounts to about about 100 hours of preaching on each CD.  These are wonderful tools to give to friends to help them to draw closer to the Lord.  New converts can really be helped by listening to these recordings.

Please feel free to contact Ren Rutledge at any time as we continue onward.

We are always thrilled to learn that new friends around the world have joined us on the internet for our Norwich Tabernacle LIVE services.  For more than 16 years we have been broadcasting every service around the world.  In the beginning of our efforts to pioneer ways to break through all the barriers in 1995 we found only a few who could receive our signal, and today tens of thousands watch our services every week.  Many have been filled with the Holy Ghost in various parts of the world as a result of learning about the true salvation plan during these live services.  We have baptized dozens from several states here in the USA, and some have arrived in Norwich from other countries to be baptized in Jesus name and receive the Holy Ghost. Words cannot express how blessed we are just to be a part of this Global move of God.  You can watch us live or you can watch the replays of the most recent service at any time.  Our LIVE schedule is as follows.  3:15 PM Sundays - 7:45 PM Tuesdays and Thursdays. (All Times Eastern)  Tune in now to the most recent service and worship with us.  Be sure to join us if at all possible during our LIVE service times.  We would love to know that you are watching.  Please feel free to call Pastor Ren Rutledge 860-823-1953 or send an email to renrutledge@gmail.com  We always love to receive cards and letters that we can read during our services.  Please share your testimony or prayer needs with us.  Here is the mailing address.  Ren Rutledge - 207 Main Street - Norwich, Connecticut 06360 USA.  Here is one of several links where you can find our services.
