Every Sunday in the month of March is designated as March Madness 2014 at Change Ministries International. Joining Host Pastor Samuel Cornish and First Lady Carmen Cornish, speakers include: Bishop George Bloomer; Pastor Luther McKinstry along with guest psalmist Jonathan Nelson; Pastor Reginald Perry; and Terez Davis – “Ms. Daisy” – as a guest psalmist.
On March 2, Bishop George Bloomer delivered his sermon on the topic: “Time is On Your Side,” as he spoke concerning the Devil/Lucifer and spiritual warfare. The Scriptural text was based on Ezekiel 28:13 with excerpts taken from the Books of Genesis, Isaiah and Psalms.
Bishop Bloomer outlined the benefits of worshipping God, and pointed out the ways that God provides for us. He warned Christians to not allow Satan to offset their “worship rhythm” and to ensure that their worship remains pure.
“On your weakest day, you have more power than the Devil,” he declared. “You become unstoppable when you get to the place that was preordained for you.”
Almost two decades ago, Bishop Bloomer discovered his preordained place after being imprisoned and not being able to read most of his adult life.
“Every year I lost, when I said yes to God, I redeemed the time,” Bishop Bloomer shared. “Lucifer understands that he has a short time, so he uses propaganda and tells you things that are not true.
“The Devil is a lie; he only comes into existence when we give him power. In order for a lie to work, there has to be a level of credibility.”
The following week on March 9, Pastor Luther McKinstry was the next invited guest speaker. While Psalmist Jonathan Nelson led the audience in the singing of some of his gospel hits, Pastor McKinstry founded his message – “It’s the Champion in Me” on 1 Samuel 17.
He proclaimed that 2014 will be a year with a lot of falling away of leaders under the New Age Revolution. However, he reassured church members that God is getting ready to visit them and bless them like never before.
“The enemy’s assignment is cancelled,” Pastor McKinstry decreed. “I don’t care how big the enemy comes in front of me, I have the victory. My name is Victory.”
He added that we are more than conquerors and we must let the enemy know that we come in the name of the Lord.
“Let the enemy know you come in the name of the Lord, and he has to back up,” Pastor McKinstry said. “When he covers his ears, he has to let go of your stuff.”
The final two March Madness services will take place on March 16 and March 23 beginning at 7 p.m. No service is scheduled for March 30.
