What Is the Significance of Doctrine?

The term “doctrine” generally means “teaching” or “instruction.” We usually use the term, however, to represent the whole content of what is taught in an educational program or catechism. The doctrine of the Church of God in Christ refers to what is taught throughout our brotherhood of member churches. Our triune God has disseminated doctrine to His people. The Father said His doctrine dropped “as the rain” to the earth [Deut. 32:2a]. Jesus astounded hearers with his doctrine, “for his word was…See More

homegoing for a suicide victim

I read that the funeral for the Georgia pastor that killed himself was a real homegoing celebration. Quite understandably, the mourning congregation wanted to celebrate the life and ministry of Teddy Parker, Jr. His close friend, E. Dewey Smith, took effort in the eulogy to defend him from apparent critics in the blogosphere that declared he was now damned. They even read a letter of condolence from Rick Warren, the megachurch pastor whose own son committed suicide this year, that asserted that…See More

Soteriology

It is a biblical truth--as well as an experiential one-- that natural man is alienated from his Creator. Human beings have an imprint of sin upon their natures, and are prone and inclined to disobey God. This inclination is the stain on human nature introduced by Adam’s transgression ("as by one man sin entered into the world," Rom. 5:12a); the result of "Original Sin," so called. A corrupted and depraved nature is present in all human life from the point of conception ("Behold, I was shapen in…See More

Sheltering the Abusers

Not so very long ago I learned that a beloved relative was sexually abused as a child by a trusted family member. When I hear of cases of pastoral abuse, I can't escape the memory of my heartbrokenness and sadness learning about this event in my family history. Because my loved one was of a generation that was wary of prosecuting such crimes--believing the stigma of being openly declared a victim was the worse fate--there was never any possibility for him to genuinely receive justice. The…See More

Duty of Submission versus Response to Love

Posted on October 1, 2009 at 11:01am 0 Comments

There are three main areas of submission to human authority laid out for the church, and in each case submission is described as a duty: women are to submit to their husbands, children are to submit to their parents, church members are to submit to pastors and leaders. Submission is not voluntary in these cases: God expects us to be submissive and will not accept our excuses for rebelliousness.



However, the counsel of God to husbands, fathers, and pastors is that they can compel… Continue

Lessons from the Clubhouse

Posted on September 25, 2009 at 4:24pm 0 Comments

In the clubhouse of a sports team, sometimes

there's a need for confrontation and challenge.

The coach or the team captain will, behind

closed doors, chew out teammates that aren't

showing the effort or comradery that they

should. They'll call out the selfish players

and chasten the lazy ones.



But only in a dysfunctional clubhouse will

any of those criticisms make it into the sports

columns or call-in shows. To the outside world,

the team… Continue

God bless you Bro. Gill,

I previously tried to reason with Ms. Davidson and unfortunately to no avail. But, I do not consider it a loss because God always has a ram (you) in the bush. I will continue to pray for you and with you as God moves in and through you to do His will.

Bro. Gill,

I just read your reply to Sis. Dawn Davidson concerning the Garden of Eden story or as she puts it, "the garden word."

You are the "umpteenth" person who has explained through teaching, the Garden of Eden story, and unfortunately, Sis. Davidson has not wavered in her false doctrine. I am not trying to discourage you from further attempts to help Sis. Davidson, because as you will see, there are a few people who continue to reach out to her, in spite of her rejection/rebellious attitude towards the TRUTH.

I gave up because I was running out of patience, and when that happens, flesh shows up. But, I continue to read her blogs and the replies to them, praying that the seed of truth will eventually take root.

Good Morning:

I know many of you who are receiving this e-mail, already have said you would get involved from the first e-mail sent to you. But I still wanted to share with you the awesome Word of the Lord, God gave to me this morning because it brings a greater clarity to what God is asking of us and why God has made the call for us to enter politics. It also may help those who did not understand or took offense to the first e-mail.

Love you all!

Dr. Jean Howard-Hill

To The Men and Women of God:

This is the Word of the Lord, God gave me early this morning regarding the call I made to the African American clergy in regards to seeking those to wage spiritual warfare within the Republican Party through their involvement in the [NRAAC] National Republican African American Caucus . God said that this is a spiritual revival that God is igniting within politics, beginning first with setting the Republican House in order! And in every revival, God uses a preacher. This is why the call was first made to you.

God gave this message regarding this. It is in quotes because I want to make it clear what God has said.

“Jean, these are the instructions I give to you. Go first to the African American clergy and make the call. Those who answer, I shall use mightily, elevating them to positions of both priesthood and rulership. But if they are deaf to the call, then go outside of the pulpits and gather those of whom I will raise up to take their places. For I will place the scepter of rulership and the Word of the Lord in their mouths and they shall become the priests of the Lord, moving on My behalf. For I shall use whomever is sensitive to My Will in this hour and can understand the urgency of setting America back on course.

I call those who are of both African and American descent because I will use this revival of politics to bring forth the final deliverance of my people from the bonds of slavery. I will loose their chains of poverty and injustice and shall bring them into positions of wealth and leadership throughout the land, so that they may invoke change and guard the Word of the Lord which has been defiled and My Name defamed. For you are a spiritual people, whose thirst and hunger for Me runs deep in the soul. You know Me like no other people. Just as I chose the Jews, so do I choose you in this hour to awaken the nation and the even the world!

I did not allow you to be brought to America in vain, to be forever the tail and in chains. But I call you to the head of the nation, and of the states and of the cities and towns of America! Now is the hour, and I have opened paths of leadership in both parties as you have seen I miraculously did with President Obama. Pray for him that he does not lose his footing! For he is about to fall, unless the church undergirts him in prayer and unless he sees the church come forth at his back, he will NOT be strengthen to do what he knows he should do. Therefore, you must arise at his back and take a stand in the Republican Party where I AM sending you. For it is the party I birthed in times past to emancipate you and to bring you to this place of deliverance from the bondage of slavery. Look in the archives of history and you will see that I have moved from one party to another, and have used both of them to bring you to the next stages of your deliverance. So who among you can tell Me which party I can and will use? I AM God and I can use whatever and whomever I so choose, whenever and however I wish. But if you do not arise in this hour, and take a stand for what is moral, just and right, I shall hold you accountable for President Obama’s mistakes and miss-steps! For if he moves to dismantle the Divine Covenant of Marriage which I have ordained and instituted, I shall move with sure and sudden destruction upon America and the church. Because you, those who say you are called by Me, sat back quietly within your pulpits and allowed it to be so!

President Obama’s strength will come out of your leadership within the Republican Party. America’s salvation will come out of your stand for righteousness ! It will begin in the Republican Party and then spread to your brothers and sisters within the Democratic Party, and they too shall take their places within their own party. This is why I have not called all of you to come into one party. For I will do the work in both! But first, it has to begin in the Republican Party. Then there shall come a time when those I have called from both parties will join together and stand as ONE voice to proclaim righteousness and justice over a land which I have given to them as an inheritance. For they also have an inheritance in this land of promise. Those who understand this will understand, and those who do not understand is because they do not understand that My ways are not your ways, and how I choose to do this is not according to the dictates of man! For who is man to tell Me what to do?

Go back again Jean, and this time, tell them that it is I who made the call and that the call is urgent! What has to be done, has to be done now.

I AM not just calling everyone. I AM only positioning those I have called and have taken through the fire, storm, and purging so that they will stand and will not bow or give in to the darkness that is covering the earth. Of these who are called, they understand how darkness covers the earth and that the darkness must be pierced. They are not all perfect, but they are and have been in the Potter’s Hands and are being and have been remolded and reshaped through many trials, and from this they have and will become experts in how to pierce the darkness, because they have dealt with their own darkness and have overcome it with light. In this same way, they shall pierce the darkness of America and usher in the Light of God – My Light which shall shine in the darkest of places and shall cause those who have been blinded to disorder and sin to see and to desire to walk in My Light. For behold this is the hour where they who sat in darkness, shall see a Bright Light that flows from those who have Me within them to bring forth the Light of God to a nation I birthed to bring Me Glory before the last days. In this land, I will spark a revival that will also be ignited from the darkest continent of Africa to usher in the new age of the Preparation of the Bride – My Darling Sweetness which is the Church I purchased with My own Blood to be My Bride! She is the Apple of My Eye, and I AM bringing her forth without spot, blemish or wrinkle.

I AM raising up many women to enter this battle. It is not because I seek only women, but it is because the women I have called, they have become like warriors, stirred up like a fearless lioness who protects her cubs, and will quickly arise with a mind to defend that which is right, just and holy! For as it was in the days of Deborah when Israel lacked a mother, and had gone astray, so is it now. So do not take offense to this. But there also are men who are lions and are ready to give forth a mighty roar! There are men who also have developed spiritual wombs and will give birth! There are men of whom I have called, who at first will not get into this battle at the front lines. But they are still called to this task, and they are strong and will stand with those who do. I will use them to support this birth, to be watchmen, and to be in the delivery room to PUSH and to facilitate the birth. Some even will give birth themselves! But both have been called and both will share in the victory. For America has to be rebirthed by both African American males and females who carry the gospel as godly vessels to birth it forth!

After I have impregnated this vision into the womb of those, both man and woman who are willing to allow Me to use them, then I will call many more to protect and provide a covering for that which is birthed, to nurture it into a mighty revival in America, Africa and then the world. This is the revival that will awaken the Bride to come out of her chamber and the Bridegroom from His room.

So when I call, count it an honor to be chosen. And bring others like you with you to do this work which has to be done timely and in season. For you are the elect I have chosen, and I AM not calling anyone of whom I have not already equipped and ordained.

For those I have called, already I have placed this in your spirit. So answer the call! For I will not make the call to you again! For there are those whose ears are tuned and will answer Me when I call them forth! If you do not answer, to them I will then call. Because they know not only My Voice, but they know the Divine Call of God for this hour that I have placed upon their lives, and are eager to be called to the front lines!"

Amen. So be it!
