“Answers of God not of Man,” by Dr. James R. Wining

This picture is one of bravery, courage, commitment and dedication. It represents protecting a Nation above all else including your own very life. It embodies the very core of our USA Constitution, “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”  These are the answers of Man which are rooted in the very fiber of yourself and what faith you listen to. Challenges posed by man are usually based on self interest, political position or even social interaction. Today many of these challenges have become conflicting persuasions involving simple Christian values such family, marriage, education, work, respect and love. These are obstacles unseen in the normal pathways of combat as defined at “Iwo Jima.” However, these persuasions represent the last evil bastion before “The Gathering, of Believers.” When I say “Look to God and not to man,” it is with the sincerest appreciation for our soldiers who understand a manly challenge above their own lives. Therefore, soldiers understand a greater cause and are an excellent example of how to sacrifice. Moreover, we as Christians must be soldiers ready to sacrifice…

“Trial of Christ,” the Calling and the Play, by Dr. James R. Wining

Those of us who follow the vision of Acts Ministry, “Unity, in Christ, through the Holy Spirit,” are aware of the last prayer of Jesus, John 17 and thereby, understand  “The Calling.”  The betrayal, the illegal trials and the eventual crucifixion detailed in John 18 illuminate His return. This is the affirming revelation of the fulfillment of Jesus’ last prayer to God. It is also a charge to those of us who follow the convictions of John 17. It is apparent why Acts Ministry chose to do “The Trial of Christ.” Acts Ministry’s vision is composed of believers who understand the “Gathering of Followers,” and the selection of Acts Ministry with its vision to do this play as a precursor to John 17. The time how Jesus will be with us and his glory upon us was set forth clearly in John 17, but proclaimed by Him during his trial in John 18. Moreover, this trial establishes the weaknesses of mankind, the love of Jesus and the forgiveness he has for our mistakes.  The time is now to…

“The Higher Calling,” by Dr. James R. Wining

The acceptance of Jesus Christ as your path to God can evolve or explode into your life. Some of us have experiences through education and observation with the eventual recognition and acceptance of Jesus Christ. Others are moved by his presence and have immediate acceptance of Jesus Christ with observation and education down the road. However, in both circumstances their faith is either enriched by a church body of friends and acquaintance or is left for further development by personal exploration. “The Higher Calling,” begins now! This understanding begins when clearly you have a recognition that all four corners of the world have been reached. The time of evangelism is over and now is the time of gathering. John 17 takes you step by step through the last prayer of Jesus. A unity through a gathering of all who believe in Him will come to pass. We are to be together as one in a place with Jesus Christ. Today whether you are self developed in Jesus Christ, Group developed by a church believing in Jesus Christ or …

“God & Media,” by Dr. James R. Wining

What does it take to reach people through social media in the 21st century with a Christian message? Are words our enemy? It seems the world attends very little to a church website, a social activity invitation  or even a give-a-way event. Actually it appears the church is a group of people who have been isolated from community activities and have become comfortable with their own education, correction and socialization behind their closed doors. This i think is exactly what ministry is purposely created. Set apart from church organizations, Acts Ministry is never the less linked through a transdenominational and transdoctrinal understanding with all faiths who believe in “Unity in Christ through The Holy Spirit,” Acts Ministry stepped into the world through social media with a worldly presence called Acts Media Group and Acts Television Network. The mission is “Doing the Right Thing, where ever needed.” This set the stage for Christians to provide all kinds of media material with Christian leadership and Christian perspective. Acts Ministry began with social issues such as autism, medical marijuana, veterans and homelessness….
