I Got Tired of Hearing the Same Things Said Over and Over Again: A Pentecostal’s Confession and Realization

GOD IS SO MUCH SMARTER THAN US…..I want to say that from the outset.

I was raised in a Pentecostal church, so the gifts of the Spirit are nothing new to me. I have heard many prophecies, tongues & interpretations.
Something always seemed to bother me……THEY WERE ALL BASICALLY SAYING THE SAME THING:

1. God loves you
2. I’m coming back again
3. I’m with you

Then my critical mind started to judge the people , not the gift.
Some do it the other way, but I played it safe. I believe that God still uses the gifts but maybe these were just well meaning people with nothing else to say but God loves you, Jesus is coming back again, I am with you.

Then I felt God speak to me through His word .

I Thessalonians 5:20 “Do not treat prophecies with contempt”

“But God,” I said “it’s the same thing over and over….GOD LOVES ME, JESUS IS COMING BACK AGAIN, I’M WITH YOU…..surely You have to have more to say to us than that?”
