During the days of the early church, the Apostle Paul never ceased to emphasize the power of prayer. Often from a dank prison cell he lovingly sent the new Christian church letters asking for prayer as he prayed for them. He made it pretty obvious that he knew the power that was contained within our Godly connection through prayer.
Jesus prayed often to Father God while on earth. In fact, He went off to quiet places and prayed passionately at the spiritual throne. In teaching His…Continue
If you feel "positive" effects from Reiki and they claim to be using healing energy from "God", how can it be evil..right?
I can tell you FIRST hand, this is not from Jesus. It opens a satanic door and assigns you a demon (or more) and the effects lead your mind away from Biblical truth. It's "New Age" deception. It is disguised as “good” but is an occult…Continue

Dr. Henry, I have been able to connect with many men and women of God who have much to give from God. It has truly been a blessing to become a member. I will continue to support your ministry. God bless you and continue to allow HIM to use you.

Creation and Evolution
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen. 1:1).
Despite the clear evidence against Evolution, it dominates the classroom and society and has had a devastating effect on belief in the Bible. For many, faith in Evolution replaces the need for faith in God and this suits their itching ears as they feel free to make their own rules. Because there is…Continue
TO LET, FORMER CHURCH
“Go now to the place in Shiloh where I first made a dwelling for my Name, and see what I did to it because of the wickedness of my people Israel” (Jeremiah 7:12 NIV).
I was prepared for many cultural shocks and surprises as I was leaving African soil for the Western World for the first time last month. I did have, and I am still having, many of such shocks in the less than two months of my sojourn in this so-called developed part of…Continue

I have found that many times we will see family after family come into your church home and seem very happy and content, then you never see them again. What is happening to families today and why is everything else taking a priority in their life, except for the church. Social medai shows us that many just rather be some place else other then church.
I have heard many say that Sunday's is time for them to spend with their family and that God wants them to make family first. I…Continue

There is much going on in our world. The Church stands challenged every day as wars and conflicts escalate and the influence of Christianity seemingly diminishes. So we look at the events of our human saga and respond to them. The question is “How?” This is especially important when we see those who try to read their own philosophies into the teaching a Scriptures. This spiritual warfare is intensifying almost daily. Our society tells us that we must compromise and leave…Continue

AOCI’s RESPONSE TO THE RECENT RULING ON MARRIAGE by Dr. Henry Vazquez, President of AOCI
The United States of America had a recent Supreme Court ruling on same sex marriage on Friday, June 26th. The court voted that all 50 US states and territories are required to recognize marriages between same-sex couples by permitting them to obtain a marriage license. It is still NOT clear how this will affect churches and clergy. There was NO explicit religious…Continue
Is Suicide The Unforgivable Sin?
There have been multitudes and multitudes of news coverage, commentaries, the blog-o-sphere being lit up, of course, publications, etc., etc., on the subject of Robin Williams, so I had decided to just remain silent, but then someone very close to me asked my view on it. Well, to say the least, since there is no…

Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: (MATT 4:5-6)
The anointing, God's grace and favor aren't just a privilege, but a huge responsibility. This responsibility isn't just limited to touching lives, but being able to combine the anointing and God's grace on our lives with the…
If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. (Matt 4:3)
Those who blessed the world in all times, lived for something much more than what the average man lives for. They were truly in the world, but not of the world in their values and perspective.
Before Jesus actually began his earthly ministry, he was tested by the devil to turn the grace of God in his life, meant to save mankind into something for…
Even if all biblical interpreters conscientiously used a consistent hermeneutical system, there would still be a variety of opinions because of the differences among the interpreters' abilities and backgrounds. Such differences are inevitable and must be accepted, but four characteristics are required of a student…Continue
