Entering a Time of Corporate Fasting

In the next couple of weeks we will be announcing a corporate time of fasting and prayer. May the Lord, even now, prepare our hearts and may we be bless with the spirit of repentance. God bless you!


 

It is amazing to me how we spend our lives messing up before knowing Christ. It equally amazes me how then, after making Christ our savior, we spend our lives hiding our mess.  We hide behind causes and behind ministries, but never allow the Holy Spirit to go deeper into our hearts and sanctify our souls. Worst of all is the idea of people being offered a Gospel where all they have to do is accept Jesus without repenting of their sins. Jesus accept us the way we are, however, we must repent for who we are in terms of our sinful life styles.

 

We have been talking about a corporate fasting in our church, but for some reason the Lord did not allow me to announce the date to start this fast. The fast, I understand now, can’t be about asking the Lord for revival, for our nation, our families or anything external. God is asking for a fasting where HE can deal with us, the condition of our hearts and our personal sin. He desires to do this in preparation for other reasons for fasting and in preparation for the release of HIS glory.

 

In the next couple of weeks we will be announcing a corporate time of fasting and prayer. May the Lord, even now, prepare our hearts and may we be bless with the spirit of repentance. God bless you!

An independent thinker with a profound call to see the orthodoxy of the church and passion for Christ manifesting together. Angel was born in Brooklyn, New York in April of 1968, he was raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where he earned his B.S. degree in Sociology with a minor in Education from the Inter American University in San Germán in 1991. That same year he moved to Jacksonville, Florida. After working construction jobs for a year and learning the English language, his first job working with foster-care children in the capacity of youth care worker was with Jacksonville Youth Sanctuary in September of 1992. With JYS he was promoted several times as group home supervisor, legal caseworker, and program director. While in Jacksonville, Angel studied a couple of martial arts styles. After earning his black belt, he became the founder of Good Fight Ministries as he used martial arts as an instrument to preach the gospel. In 2004 Angel was selected Martial Arts Instructor of the Year for the State of Florida and in 2005 Angel was inducted in the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame where he also received the Christian Spirit Award. In July of 2005 Angel accepted his call to pastor a bilingual church in Winton, NC where he served for a couple of years. Five months later he lost his first wife to cancer in December of that same year. This initiated a deep valley of suffering in his life, a mountain of costly mistakes and the embracing of lifestyles of sin that are well documented through this blog. In August of 2012 Angel moved to Fairbanks Alaska with his wife Rayette Casiano and six children who are now adults. In Alaska, Angel continued his social work-related career and his ministry of preaching, teaching and writing.
