Dancin' with Wolves 3

I recently came across the journal of 'The Right Reverend Riley R. Robinson'
Prophet, Pastor and Presiding Prelate of the
True Anointing Church, Kentucky (TAC KY)

The Holee Ghose moved TO-DAY, I’ll tell you!
My topic was ‘Buryin’ Bones’
I preached from 1 Sam 31: 11-13
11 Now when the inhabitants of Jabesh Gilead heard what the Philistines had done to Saul, 12 all the valiant men arose and traveled all night, and took the body of Saul and the bodies of his sons from the wall of Beth Shan; and they came to Jabesh and burned them there. 13 Then they took their bones and buried them under the tamarisk tree at Jabesh, and fasted seven days.
I told them that we got to bury the bones of the old man, and take up the new one.
I told them that, just like Saul, their disobedience to God is keeping them back. In fact, it’s killing them. I said...
“What’s the remedy? What the cure? Obedience! What does God want? Obedience in all your ways, especially in the handling of your finances. After all, If you wanna be blessed, give God the Best, and He’ll take care of the rest.”
I called for a 7 day consecration fast, and I put up a little tree in front of the pulpit. Everybody had to bury their Saul at the foot of the tree. I told them:“Whatever that sin is, that disobedience, write it down, and put it under the tree. In order for you see God work, you got to bury it! “ Then I said...
"Next week, we’re going to Break the fast, and break through to the Blessing! Oh Shondalabandala HEYYY!!!!"
(You know that got em going..)
So next Sunday, after service, we’re going to have a brunch, everybody has got to bring a pot for pot luck, but the only ones who can eat are the ones who bring the ‘Sacrificial 77’ (that is, the $77 sacrificial offering) It’s only right. I told them don’t waste God’s time or mine comin to me privately to say they can’t pay it, everyone know s that God helps those who help theyselves, and The Bible says that the wealth of the wicked is laid up for the righteous.
So the ones who can’t come up with the $77, it’s proof that they ain’t right.
I sure do hope old Sister Reed bakes them yams…
Her wig is dusty and her dentures don’t fit, but man can she cook a yam!
