All the service at the Norwich Tabernacle can be watched LIVE at 7:30 pm Tuesdays & Thursdays and on Sundays at 3:00 pm (All Times Eastern)  This service is our first attempt to broadcast with a small Kendall notebook live for the entire service on FaceBook.  You can watch in higher quality at our website http://www.norwichtabernacle.com/  It is more fun on FaceBook in my opinion.  Join us and contact your friends and contacts everywhere.  We are here to be real for people all over the world and we offer truth and abundant love.  Here is the facebook link to the Live service on March 26, 2017   https://www.facebook.com/renrutledge/videos/10212488463270390/

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.

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.
