Room. 15 4 For all that is written is written unto us, that we may have hope for the patience and comfort of the scriptures.1 Cor. 10. 6 But these things happened to us, that we should not want evil, as they desired.Heb. 13. 7 Remember your supervisors who have spoken the word of God to you! pay attention to the end of their journey, and then follow their faith!The
first time I realized Jimmy Swaggart was as far as I can recall, it was
in 1984. Actually since then I have followed him and his service. At the beginning when I was young, he had to have many ways as a model for me.Swaggart really had "all". He preached the word clearly, taught enriching and singing wonderfully, more than any other preacher in many ways.But unfortunately, it started going downhill for Jimmy Swaggart.The first time I realized this is back in a campaign he had in 1987 on August 87, Crusade at Long Island, New York, USA.
August 1987 at Long Island, NY Crusade at Nassau Veterans Memorial
Coliseum Saturday night, Jimmy Swaggart was revealed for the first time
as far as I know.You enter from 25 minutes to 29 minutes and you bring everything.Long Island Assembly of Good Pastor Gary Strut was what made this.Have written something about this here, if I see that I'm breaking in one day.
Long Island Assembly of Good Pastor Gary Strut was what made this.He had a dream where he realized that it was Jimmy Swaggart who needed guidance, not that he should guide everyone else. When he confronted Swaggart with this, Swaggart was not enough man to acknowledge his sin.He stood up half a year later, revealed to the whole world and this was also sent all over the world on all channels. Even here in Norway, this was sent to NRK.https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Jimmy+Swaggart+confesses+his+sin+in+February+1988
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxB6-HnXZEUWe know that Jimmy Swaggart "hit" back again senters too. On October 11, 1991, Jimmy Swaggart was found in conjunction with a prostitute for a second time.How could this happen and what was the reason? Of course, it is the sin that lives in the hearts of all of us who come forward. But why did this happen to Jimmy Swaggart? Think I would like to mention 3 reasons.1.) He would not subordinate to authority.2.) He was too "active" in the service.3.) Had too many "yes" people around. We all need some "no" people who can also tell us the truth and press our weaknesses and shortcomings.
